New uptown waterfront pathway partially opened

I’m not sure when this officially opened to the public, as I haven’t been up here in the past few days (during the day at least), but today I noticed it was open.

This pathway extends north from the 14th Street pier and wraps around The Sovereign luxury rental building. It’s nice to have extra waterfront places to hangout or walk.

It will eventually connect with the Hudson Tea Building pathway, and then (if we’re lucky) connect to the 1600 Park Avenue park (if it ever gets built.)

See below for more pictures.

Despite it’s problems, Hoboken is still a great place to live.
Guard rails to protect your from drunkards coming from LUA.
A lovely patch of mossy grass to enjoy!

Haha, this is one of the funnier posts I’ve read in a while…
And the sad part is, it’s probably half true!

Surprised to see a post here, after so long, but had to reply.

That guardrail isn’t needed for a 25 mph road. It’s needed for the drunk driver or young-dumb-testosterone type who some day is going to try to take that curve at about 50 mph.

Also — we’re in the dry season right now. When there’s ice out there, it’d be very easy to pop up and over that curb, and plow into a very surprised pedestrian.

Or maybe it was an attempt to prevent City Parks trucks from buckling the pavement, like those chuckleheads did to the downtown river path.

It is kind of absurd that that is needed for a 25mph road. Al probably told them they needed it to keep trucks from thinking the waterfront walkway is a road and driving into the river.

ugh, nothing says “welcome to the Hudson River” like that ugly NJ-Turnpike-esque steel highway guardrail along the street by the River btw 14th and 15th Streets. Looks like the developers of the Shipyard and Hudson Tea have lost their aesthetic touch-IN A BIG WAY.

I mean seriously, do you think this ugly guardrail is going to appear in any of their real estate promotional photos? Geez, SOMEONE was asleep at the switch on this one. Actually, make that SOMEONES – the developers AND the city alike – WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT. Hoboken deserves better!

Golly gee whiz boys and girls… look at all that barren paving.

Mayor Roberts counts that as open space in his political spiels. I think it looks like a road, but hey Hoboken City Hall gave the developers variance worth many many millions of dollars for it it should be WODERFUL. It’s not.

Wouldn’t it be nice that one time we where blown away with the results of one of these developer deals.
