White Lines BACK on Washington Street!

9/23/2010 Update:

Success! Missing white lines corrected!

Just a few short weeks after publication on Hoboken411 – the “missing white lines” situation along Washington Street has been corrected.

Next!

See original complaint after the jump!

8/25/2010:

Giant tax bills, but no street upkeep!

One Hoboken411 reader is wondering with the money pouring into city coffers, that they can’t find a way to maintain something quite basic like parking spot lines:

“Can we get some white lines painted on 9th & Washington St. so we can see the parking spots?

They have been this way for a couple of years now and it’s pretty rough to see any paint any longer! You’d think with all the taxes we pay we might be able to afford some paint for the white lines on the street… HELP!”

Between 4th and 2nd, though they put the angles back by the police station. Until they repaved, only a few months ago, it was angled parking. But they didn’t paint the lines back in, because apparantly this is a county road, not a city street, and the county didn’t approve Hoboken’s use of the angles. Ian Sacs doesn’t seem to give a damn about painting lines back along Hudson, according to an email response I got from him.

Those white parallel lines were lobbied for LAST MAY when I took pictures by Wallace and the PARK (Elysian) that the lines were blurred and needed to be replaced.
BETH MASON and CASTELLANO and RUSSO waited for the NEW PAINT that was not
available and said it was necessary. THE WHOLE CITY IS BEING DONE…SIGNAL AND TRAFFIC are working like dogs…I took pictures on HUDSON and WASHINGTON….
It is unfair criticism to say NOBODY brought it up and NOBODY cares or works on the
problems here. WE WAITED FOR PAINT for a LONG TIME because NOBODY WANTED TO PAY FOR IT….

How much can paiting some dang lines cost? We DO have city workers on salary that could fit this into their oh-so-busy work days. And they could use the frosting from Carlos, so I don’t understand why the city says cost is the issue.

(Ooh White Lines) Vision dreams of passion
(Blowin’ through my mind) and all the while I think of you
(High price) a very strange reaction
(For us to unwind) the more I see, the more I do
(Something like a phenomenon) Baby!
(Tellin your body to come along, but white lines blow away)
(Blow! Rock it! Blow!)

Ticket to ride, white line highway
Tell all your friends, they can go my way
Pay your toll, sell your soul
Pound for pound costs more than gold
The longer you stay, the more you pay
My white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or through your vein
With nothin to gain except killin’ your brain

(Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)
(Blow!)

(Ahhh) Higher, baby
(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
And don’t ever come down!

Does anyone know if the city is going to try and have the county allow angled parking on Hudson St? That street is sooo wide now without it.

Exactly where is Hudson Street wide enough to allow angled parking? On both sides? I can’t think of anywhere it is… (don’t forget people will still double-park!)[quote comment=”197851″]Does anyone know if the city is going to try and have the county allow angled parking on Hudson St?
