Hazardous Hoboken Space!
Yeah, maybe it’s not such a good idea!
Back in February – I asked an innocent question as to why this “supposedly” nice plot of grass wasn’t available for public use. Well, after a spring rain storm – we had mudslides and boulders falling down. So perhaps it should remain fenced off, and just be a nice green site for us to view from afar. Have a great day!
Why can’t this be used for something?
You ever walk by that grassy area on the east side of Hudson between 8th and 7th? Even though it belongs to Stevens Institute, do you ever wonder why it’s fenced off with all that “luscious green” on the other side?
It may only be a 10th of an acre – but 4000+ sq. ft. of open space is still more than we’re getting anywhere else in Hoboken. And with some negative stories about Stevens recently, it might give them some good P.R. if they could open that space up for residents to use (for a picnic, dogs, to play ball with junior, etc.)
Then again, it may be fenced off for a reason (cars or boulders may plummet down the hill?) – who knows. But it’s a shame one way or another…
