Sign of things to come?

9/26/2008:

Hoboken411 reader “Cyclewag” thought this street sign could be considered a bit confusing to certain drivers. Perhaps it’s a “sign from above” that it’ll eventually become a real street one day?

Clinton St. into a brick wall

“Did you know there is a segment of Clinton Street that runs right into a brick wall?

The attached photos are of a street sign showing Observer Hwy and Clinton Street intersecting at a lovely red cinder block brick wall at Neumann Leathers building. Would hate to be that unaware driver who tries to make that left turn coming back into town!”

Clinton Street runs North. No matter what development is decided on, we need an up to date police presence for crime and traffic control. This takes a combination of modern technology, common sense and a vetting process that picks professional department heads. Of course, the same goes for the head of community development. Of course, this means a new ‘administration’.

If Trammel Crow gets it’s way Clinton Street WILL be driven not only through that brick wall, but through several demolished buildings on the Neumann Leather property. The new Clinton Street will be the new thoroughfare of choice for the thousands of commuters who use Hoboken as a pass-through between the Holland and Lincoln tunnels.

Trammel Crow’s architect Dean Marchetto is slyly claiming that it will be a “pedestrian street” but if it looks like a street, it’s a street.

If the Hoboken Zoning Board approves the myriad of variances Trammel Crow is asking for, the Hudson County Planning Board will also hold a hearing and make recommendations on the project. At that time the county can use it’s prerogative to make what clearly appears to be a street on Marchetto’s plans into an actual street for cars citing “the need for a freer flow of traffic” through Hoboken.

If I lived anywhere on Clinton Street — downtown or uptown — I would oppose the Trammel Crow plan. It will turn Clinton into a northbound thoroughfare.

That sign is no fluke. It is the county’s vision for the future should Neumann be demolished.
