14th Street Taxi Stand
What open government?
Four emails sent to City Hall – with no official response or acknowledgment. Will keep sending and reminding until a response is received.
Hoboken411 reader Brad echoed what dozens of other readers have already sent in to me:
Taxi Stand is Hardly Used!
“Here’s the taxi-less 14th St taxi stand on Friday at 12:30am. I didn’t notice one taxi use it the entire night.”
Do you think this was a good or bad idea by the city?

What’s the deal?
Without issuing an official notice – Hoboken City Hall has now enacted a new 14th Street Taxi Stand (on what seems like late week / weekend nights only).
Hoboken411 has again received many emails about this new program – and can only guess what the deal is. Certain days of the week, parking meters are covered, and other days they’re not. While I don’t have a problem with an organized way to shuffle drunks and disorderlies to their next booze-consuming destination in an efficient and non-problematic manner, it’d be nice to get an official statement from Parking Czar Ian Sacs as to what exactly is transpiring here.
The general tone of the emails from residents is:
- “Exactly when are these meters enforced?”
- “Has the city made provisions for the four fewer spots we can park in at night?”
- “Who is benefiting from this new system? Why do residents have to suffer?”
- “When were we going to find out about it?”
Awaiting official response from Hoboken City Hall…
