HOBOKEN -- Contractors abounded. So did dump trucks. And the wet contents of people's basements, up on the street.

Residents of mile-square Hoboken were cleaning up all over town this past weekend.

But be careful of how you clean up - as this story in this past weekend's Reporter article, 'What's in the Water', explains.

Lowlying areas saw their basements flooded during Hurricane Sandy, and with the power back on as of a week ago in many places, they've only begun to dig out.

Among the items spotted - a bashed-in drum, some old baptism books near a church, and what looked to be several ruined antiques.

On Willow Avenue, someone's own "Rosebud" appeared to be getting the heave-ho.

The good news is, items being donated from around the country are now being given to the Hoboken homeless shelter and other needy places.
