New traffic pattern at Maxwell Place

3/10/2009:

Not sure how many of you drive near Maxwell Place, but there’s a giant orange sign that “alerts” people that a new traffic pattern is coming on Sinatra Drive Northbound on March 17th.

I could have sworn I had an email about this, but cannot find it. I believe it will be two-way traffic now… but I could be wrong.

There’s your public service announcement for the day.

Hudson Street is a North/South road from 11th to 15th. What are you talking about?

As for the Maxwell Place Park, it was built privately, but was given over to the City as part of the agreement to building Maxwell Place.[/quote]
i was referring to the grass area that roberts had a public fight with the building inspector and the fence cutting media event and zimmer had her softball game protest at, not the waterfront walkway. and i apologize on the hudson st comment, i was referring to hudson st south of 11th since that is where people would turn off sinatra to cut over. not enough coffee yet.

Good link – it just goes to reinforce how poorly a job the city does in getting developers to deliver on their promises. The city should force developers to post very large cash deposits or performance bonds to insure delivery of promised parks/open space/community centers before they are ever allowed to break ground (and get iron clad contracts – another area the city is lacking in).

[quote]This park is noteworthy for several reasons. The fact that the developers devoted more than 1/3 of their land for a public park is unprecedented along New Jersey’s Hudson River “gold coast” where developers have sought to keep as much of this valuable land for their own use as possible. No variances or increased densities were granted to the developers in exchange for this land which now belongs to the City of Hoboken. [/quote]

first of all there is NO northbound traffic on Hudson. second there is no way there should be a right permitted off Sinatra prior to the light. as mentioned above it would created a superhighway of cars trying to avoid the light and an impossible situation for the safe use of the waterfront park. finally, the “streets” you are describing are not city streets. they are privately owned driveways. the city doesn’t pave them, the city doesn’t plow them, the city cannot put parking meters there, they don’t paint the stripes, empty the garbage or determine the parking rules. this is private property. much like WFC across the river, the public is permitted access but may be removed and/or charged with trespassing at the will of the property owners. the city doesn’t maintain the grass, the lighting or the various resources on any of the open space there either. again, the public is permitted access but there are no taxpayer “rights” to this property that may be assumed across the street at Elysian park. those that allow their pets to piss/sh!t on that property should keep in mind that the property is monitored by closed circuit cameras with recorders and the property owner is within his right to file charges against those that do not clean up after their animals. if they wanted they could close public access to the driveways altogether. it’s a similiar situation to the closed/fenced park at Garden and Newark that is owned by that property… Read more »
