31. "This project...stalled when...an anti-development faction took over..."

Yes, I remember it well: the city of Hoboken refused to allow a tattoo parlor to open, citing "sanitation issues." But after arming themselves with info from the health department about what standards they'd have to meet, plus the argument that doctors and dentists were being allowed to operate in Hoboken despite their potential "sanitation issues," they filed suit and got their permit.

But why was the tattoo parlor given such a hard time? It soon became apparent: the city had just begun to gentrify, and an establishment that attracted biker and rock star types would certainly not fit in with the decor of their yuppie hell-to-be. But this story has a happy ending: the parlor celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2018!
