    The new park (and Cingular Commerical location) on the corner of 15th and Park now has a playground.

    I drove past here today, and maybe someone could explain why I saw two identical playgrounds right next to each other? Was I having double vision?

    Enough with the playgrounds. This city needs more ballfields!

    Purple – I have to ask – was that your stance when your kids were toddlers?

    These plots of land are not big enough for ballfields. Gotta get over it, man, you live in a place with a population density roughly equivalent to Tokyo. Ballfields are for Morris County and Upstate New York. And I don’t mean Westchester, I mean places like Syracuse and Rochester.

    Those playgrounds are going to get very intensive use, from sun-up to sun-down.

    When my kids were little, they played on the playgrounds in Elysian Park and Church Square Park. Playgrounds get used for the first 4 years of a child’s life (maybe a little more). It’s great that there are so many babies and toddlers in this town, but what’s going to happen when they all grow up and there is NO place for them to play sports?

    The Hoboken Youth Soccer League is already busting at the seams with the 600 Hoboken kids it accommodates each fall.

    It just seems a bit short-sighted to me.

    I can’t even estimate how many babies and toddlers there are in this town who are age 5 and under, but I’ve got to believe that that age group has a higher population than the 6 – 15 age group. You can’t swing a dead cat in this town without hitting a Bugaboo!

    If all these people decide to stay for the long haul, they’re going to be disappointed in about 5 years when their kids are playing games and practicing late at night.

    I KNOW it’s too late for my own kids, as they’ll be long out of the house before we’ll ever see 1600 Park or a Southwest Park, but maybe these parents of toddlers could think a little more into the future.

    No one answered my question – Are there really two identical playground structures at the tea building? If so, that’s just lame.

    Why is the Hudson River Waterfront Walk a secret path?

  7. bunbury says:

    Another park instead of a nail salon or dry cleaners? The next generation of Hoboken teens might end up being crappy ball players due to field shortages, but their manicured fingernails and perfectly pressed clothes will be the envy of the eastern seaboard.

    Purple 68 – I guess what annoys me more than the 2 playgrouns, and no, I don’t know if they are identical – is the fact that as far as I know, they are there without public input. Was there a public meeting? The city council “promised” after the astroturf debacle that the public would be included in all future park development. So much for asking about for input. I have the specs on 1600 park and it’s not much better. Fortunately, I think there will be public meetings before 1600 Park, if it ever gets started, but we have to make sure it happens before we end up with passive space and a playground. Don’t get me wrong. I am all “for the children.” I agree with you, however, that we have to look at the bigger picture.

    The key word is FUTURE development applications. This development was approved a long time ago. Before the the atroturf.

    Jesus people, how many times do we need to say it. If what you are looking for is grassy fields, lush wooded areas, and properly proportioned: baseball diamonds, football fields, hockey rinks, soccer fields, etc. — then you should wise up and move (or drive the 45 mins) to the jersey burbs. This really isn’t that complicated of an issue and I’m sick of hearing about it. Next it’s going to be why the new Pier C doesn’t have a little league stadium or something of a similar argument. Puh-lease!

    I trust that the infinitely wise city council truly understand the demographic make-up of the community. Their forward looking planning group will readily be able to satisfy all ball playing field requirements, without comprimising real estate development and the sewage infrastructure.

    If they can do it there we can do it here.

    Who is looking for grassy fields and lush wooded areas? I’m sure the kids would take an occasional vacant lot if there were any left. I would just like to see a few well thought out parks & recreation areas to accomodate the increase in population. All great cities big and small balance thier development so they can take care of thier existing citizens. We seem to only care about the the amenities for those moving into the next, newest development.

    Thanks, Foster. I always roll my eyes when Ruben Ramos or Terry LaBruno or anyone else says “It is so much better now. We had skinned knees from playing on empty lots!” Problem is, there are no more empty lots!

    In the neighborhood I grew up in, we played on a dead end street in the neighborhood. There are none of those around here either and it takes an act of congress to close down a street for the people. All it takes for developers to get that done though is put up some cones.

  16. bmacqueens says:

    Tot lots don’t take up a lot of space. Ball fields do. We have umpteen thousand people jammed into a tiny area, hemmed in by the cliff, the river and industrial zones on both ends (the PATH yard and the no-go-zone at the Weehawken bridges).

    We’re never going to get a big central park spread. Get used to it. If you want to play 11 vs. 11 football, take it to the Weehawken park that just opened on the river. Or to the gigantic spread of grass at Liberty Park. That place is so large that you could do Civil War re-enactments over there, complete with live ammunition and real cannonballs, and still not bother anybody.

    bmac, maybe not Central Park, but closer to Prospect if the SW6 plan becomes reality. 1600 Park Avenue also holds promise. If we only had taken the Master Plan recommendations seriously, we would not be spending so much time on this issue. The groundwork is all laid out there.

    We desperately NEED to have a whole new city administration and an effective county representative if any of these plans (dreams at this point) are to become reality.

    Am I the only one that thinks Pier C is ridiculous?

    Just make another Pier A. A rectangular lot, maximize the space and implify the construction.
