New Jersey - Paterson, Hoboken

“He [Dean] came right out to Paterson, New Jersey, where I was living with my aunt …” (3).

“Meanwhile Dean had gotten a job in a parking lot, had a fight with Marylou in their Hoboken apartment—God knows why they went there …” (3)

Paterson isn't too far from NYC, thus the traffic was hectic and plentiful. It reminded me a lot of Newark New Jersey, a city I dealt with a few weeks ago when I went to see a certain car at a dealer that was nothing but a chop shop. Not a place I'd care to live.

Hoboken actually wasn't as ugly as I was expecting, although I spent most of my time in a pretty small area (a dozen blocks or so within the Hoboken PATH stop). I bought a car from a guy who lived there, and the section he lived in was pretty nice--tree-lined streets, small shops and cafes with outdoor seating, nice looking buildings, etc.
