Scope & Content Newspaper article: New Jersey Reels from Storm's Thrashing. Page one headline article by David M. Halbfinger; Hoboken, N.J. dateline; as published in The New York Times, Thursday, November 1, 2012.

Full section A of the late edition is present with continuation of article and others. Hoboken as the location of the lead article about Hurricane Sandy's effect on New Jersey was uncommon.
(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 ".)

Notes Purchased in Hoboken at Davis Stationery on Washington Street; newspapers were scarce in the city during the initial days of the flooding and power outages - road access was restricted plus very few places were open then to receive or sell papers - the store that sold this copy was using a few candles for lighting and doing cash only sales.
