“Due to the winter storm & state of emergency, transportation now suspended to the HudCo Homeless warming center for today, Feb. 1, 2021. The warming center remains open.Please contact local law enforcement to provide transportation to the warming center,” the Hudson County government tweeted minutes ago.

The shelter, located at 53 Hackensack Ave., is one of several announced locations ahead of today’s first big snow fall of the year that has already brought down about six inches in most parts in Hudson County.

Additionally, Union City has announced warming center locations at City Hall and the Bruce Walter Recreation Center, West New York provided five separate locations: 515 54th St., 430 62nd St., 6100 Adams St., 6300 Adams St., and 5800 Jefferson St.

  1. I think Ravi Bhalla’s plans to bus Hoboken’s Homeless to the Kearny Prison is cruel idea. The meadowlands is okay for them but not illegals?

  2. Can we unarmed emergency personnel to handle this?… like quality of life task force or something? Or hire medical transportation companies who aren’t busy with outpatient calls since offices are closed. We don’t need guns and handcuffs for this.
