Snooki and Jwoww Coming to Hoboken Soon.  Good for town or bad?

This week, producers with MTV have been blanketing Hoboken retail stores and restaurants with paperwork asking if local businesses would like to be part of the show which is untitled at the moment.  The show which is entitled for now “Snooki & Jwoww untitled” is asking local merchants to use their places of business for filming.

Unlike other shows which are filmed in Hoboken that show off the good side of Hoboken like the Cake Boss, local merchants have been coming out of the woodwork and staying they’re not interested in the show being filmed at their businesses.  Some merchants fear that businesses will be depicted in the negative light and make local businesses look bad.

Many Hoboken residents also feel the shooting of the show In Hoboken may create a mob of out of town lovers of the Jersey Shore, filling the sidewalks and streets with fans and extra cars. Some, self included feel it could potentially be a safety concern filming he show in the community.

The date to start production is unknown at this time.

What do you think? Is this potential show good for the Hoboken community or will it possibly depict us as a laughable city like the Jersey Shore has done for communities along the Jersey shore?
