HOBOKEN AND BEYOND -- A story right under our noses has been picked up by the blokes from across the pond.
Apparently, according to a report in the Daily Mail, based in the United Kingdom, there are “wealthy youngsters” in Hoboken who pay “big bucks” to join a club called the "Destruction Company" so they can smash expensive items for ... stress relief? We guess?
It's sort of like a version of "Fight Club," only instead of punching each other, these young Hobokenites buy and then break expensive items.
According to the story: “'Many of our clients are high earning city workers. A lot of the inquiries we get by email have addresses ending with names such as Morgan Stanley ... People can only join if an existing member invites them and we have them in for a session, to get to know them before deciding whether they can become a member.”
The story says the group is not about violence, but rather “the art of destruction.”
The members of the group pay for something they want to destroy, according to the report. “They are then given a choice of weapon including baseball bats, golf clubs, battle axes, sledgehammers, lump hammers, swords, and chainsaws.”
Apparently, the group is super secret, according to the story HERE.
But their photo shows them on a roof somewhere in the southwest corner of the city.
So, Hoboken, take a look at the story and pictures; any guesses to where this group meets? Would you want to join the Destruction Company? Comment below! And go back to hudsonreporter.com for more exciting stories from Hudson County, New Jersey. --
