Surveillance Footage Of Missing Hoboken Man Released

Posted: Updated:
Hoboken, New Jersey (My9NJ) - It’s been nearly a month since 27 year-old Hoboken resident Andrew Jarzyk was last seen running along the pier around 2:00am.

Police have now released the private, somewhat grainy surveillance footage that shows Jarzyk the night he disappeared. However, officials are now saying that there could have been even more surveillance video taken had the city’s public surveillance cameras actually been working that night. In fact, these public surveillance cameras haven’t been working since 2009, but after a city council vote last week, the cameras will be back up and running soon.

The town is now going to be spending over $170,000 to put ten high-tech surveillance cameras down by the waterfront and throughout the city of Hoboken. Some councilmembers are saying that not only would working surveillance cameras throughout the city have helped get a better feel for what happened to Jarzyk, but it would also give his family and friend’s peace of mind.

Others, like Councilman Christopher Russo, are pointing their finger at Mayor Dawn Zimmer who they say should have made restoring these cameras a priority in the city.

“We’ve been dealing with this issue of not having functional cameras in the city, but the tragedies that have occurred in the past few months have really exacerbated the entire situation. Mayor Zimmer and her administration have been very reactive in dealing with certain situations in the city of Hoboken, she has not been proactive in any of her thinking and that’s been the problem here in the city of Hoboken,” he explained.

Mayor Zimmer’s camp says that installing new public surveillance cameras has been a priority of hers for several years now and that she’s made it possible for the city to get the incoming high-tech surveillance cameras that are scheduled to be installed down by the waterfront and throughout the city as soon as possible.

    On Thursday, Hillary Clinton made her one and only book stop in Ridgewood, New Jersey promoting her memoir, Hard Choices, which details her life as Secretary of State. This one stop ironically was on the same day that Governor Chris Christie was out of town in Iowa on several fundraising stops. Was his absence a coincidence?
