A Sense of Comfort in Hoboken as the U.P.S. Man Makes His Rounds - NY Times Their New Jersey city had been steamrollered by Hurricane Sandy, forcing a major evacuation from waterlogged homes. They went days without power and heat and basic necessities like food and water. So as the people of Hoboken struggle to recover, some beleaguered residents have taken solace at the sight of a man in a brown suit carrying boxes. Danny Vignola, who has squeezed a boxy United Parcel Service truck through Hoboken’s skinny, crowded streets for a quarter of a century, returned to his delivery route on Friday, four days after Hurricane Sandy hit, and delivered more than just packages. His presence was a sign that life was returning to normal.
