HOBOKEN - Hoboken was a sea of green Saturday as the city celebrated St. Patrick's Day.

The annual pub crawl, previously known as "LepreCon," draws thousands of people to the city.

Teak on the Hudson was no exception. The restaurant was packed with revelers in the afternoon after opening at 9 a.m. to handle the crowds.

The bouncers and general manager estimated that thousands of people had made their way through the doors by 5 p.m.

Police have stated that the annual celebration has become more troublesome over the years. They have adopted a zero-tolerance policy over petty crimes that come with the celebration.
