Fun collection of letters to the editor of the Hoboken Reporter in the late 1980s showing the battles over gentrification in the small, formerly blue-collar NJ town. Given that Hoboken is now one square mile of nothing but dude bros and overpriced condos, it's hard not to side with the anti-yuppies who wrote in, even if they do trade in pretty objectionable commentary.
