The Disaster Recovery Center in Hoboken was located at 59 Washington Street in a vacant store next to a Office Depot retail store. This is the location printed in both languages. About mid-December, the Center was closed in Hoboken and operations shifted to the basement of Hoboken City Hall, 94 Washington St. and hours changed from daily to "Closed on Sundays."
This sheet was intended for use in Hudson County and named locations of Disaster Recovery Centers for Bayonne (Bayonne City Museum) and Jersey City (Jersey City Museum) as well as the Hoboken on . Since these copies were distributed in Hoboken, only the lines for Hoboken are changed.
The disaster was Hurricane Sandy.
(While colloquially referred to as a hurricane, it technically was not one at the time it made landfall October 29th on New Jersey and New York; it was termed a hybrid storm - a combination of a tropical storm and nor'easter [northeaster]; popularly called " Frankenstorm ".)
