How much Hoboken can you buy with Mega Millions?

It's a summer Friday and the dog days of August. Humidity has reared its head when it was almost a forgotten memory and the air conditioners are running in salvation mode. What lies ahead? There's a tasty treat coming your way: promise.

So with the Mega Millions now over $200 million, let's say one person in Hoboken wins. What could you buy or since this is New Jersey who would you buy? And why? The possibilities are endless. You would have enough money to build a 5,000 seat baseball stadium and run your own little AA baseball team where it all started. And you wouldn't even need to build any 40 or 50 story building next to it in any grand "compromise."

It's a time for dreaming. Go on, it's free. And nothing else ever is.
