Uptown Shipyard is filthy no more!

Shipyard Sidewalk Situation Solved

About a week after the Hoboken411 story about the never-cleaned-before area in the archway at the Shipyard complex uptown – reader YipYap spotted a worked power-washing the sidewalk and walls!

8/25/2010:

Tarnished Archway Needs a Monthly Shower!

Hoboken411 reader Eddie, who walks quite a bit in the Mile Square sent in this observation about the rather disgusting conditions near the covered walkway in front of the Hoboken Historical Museum. Shouldn’t someone be taking care of this?

“I walk through this covered Shipyard Lane walkway all the time, but just recently took note of the really dirty sidewalk inside.

The same smear of dog poop has been there for more than a year. This isn’t the usual case of a sidewalk that is strewn with common litter – it is a truly filthy patch of space that never sees a drop of rain (or restaurant employee with a hose) to wash it clean. There appear to be windows but they are not open to the air even. I started thinking about it, and there aren’t too many other spaces in Hoboken sheltered form a good rain, except the NJ Transit/PATH Station.

What I’m wondering is: what it would take to hose this down every so often? Is that a waste of time, or does anyone agree that a periodic spray might be nice?”

I agree with WiskeyTango.

By the way, what is even more disturbing is that there has been a summer camp going on at the museum. The kids who attend the camp have been playing in that archway. I’m surprised the museum folks haven’t tried to clean it up somehow.

ocean its just unfair dogs that size should be confined to a duplex or a three bedroom apt
its unfair to them.. My family has a lab and she is free to run all over the property and romp in the snow…this is the shore area…Again its unfair to the dogs confined in these
bldgs.But it is what it is. As far as the museum its the directors job to wash down the archway to eliminate the germs and droppings…[quote comment=”196688″]I agree with WiskeyTango.By the way, what is even more disturbing is that there has been a summer camp going on at the museum.

Unfortunately, not all dogs can live in the country. Better that they live in an apartment and are well taken care of then suffering endless days in a shelter. The country is not always what its crakced up to be either. Some dogs end up tied up outside the house day in and day out for years. Good dog owners are good dog owners and know how to take care their dogs. The dogs are well socialized, get plenty of exercise and lots of love. Wouldn’t it be nice if all dogs could run free, romp on the beach and play in the snow? Yes, it would, but this is Hoboken and like you put it, “it is what it is.” Truth be told, certain giant breeds, like Danes and Mastiffs are well suited for apartment life. The Mastiff has a very low energy level because of its extra large size. Greyhounds are well known couch potatoes. Anyway, they all poop and I guess that’s how this thread got started. Pick up, people.[quote comment=”196691″]ocean its just unfair dogs that size should be confined to a duplex or a three bedroom aptits unfair to them..

freid you have your opinion.To repeat once more.Bitbulls rotweilers dobermans shepards do not belong in apts condos etc. Why was two pit bullls shot reciently? You can’t figure the mindset of these animals..A animal lover would not subjectcate these type of dogs in a confined atmosphere..What does love have to do with attacking someone. It has happened in the past for no reason except only the dog knew..What does the country have to do with owning a dog? As you and i said this is hoboken,but there are other areas to raise dogs…Just an opinion..My choice would be a yorkie if i were to keep it in my apt…I must say a good dog is loyal more than humans..good luck fried 😆 [quote comment=”196696″]Unfortunately, not all dogs can live in the country.

I could go on and on about breed specific legislation (NJ does not allow it BTW), the history of dogs, their temperament, etc., but this debate has been on these boards hundreds of times. Lets just say iin the same way I will not form an opinion about an entire culture of people as a result of the acts of one, I will not do the same for dogs. Love Yorkie’s, but those little things are terriers and you better watch your fingers unless you raise that litte one right. Oh, and to stay on topic, just becuase they have little poops, you still have to pick it up. Ciao.[quote comment=”196703″]freid you have your opinion.To repeat once more.Bitbulls rotweilers dobermans shepardsdo not belong in apts condos etc. Why was two pit bullls shot reciently?

And the museum will be selling tomatoes there this Sunday.

They really need to do a thorough cleaning (hot water spray & scrubbing) before bringing in the produce. Just sayin’ [quote comment=”196688″]I agree with WiskeyTango.By the way, what is even more disturbing is that there has been a summer camp going on at the museum.

Eddie’s right. Its hard to tell how bad it is from the photo. Nobody ever seems to hose down that passageway. There’s also bird crap and dropped food left to rot.

Isn’t there a weight limit in the shipyard bldgs re dogs..I saw one as large as a water buffalo and you needed a front end loader to clean up the mess.I believe weight limit is 40lbs…Some apts must smell like heck.[quote comment=”196613″]Way too many bad dog owners in the Shipyard buildings.

There is no weight limit on dogs in the shipyard.

Before recently, you could have up to 2 dogs(for the price of $50/each per month). In a new amendment to all shipyard contracts(as well as in new contracts), you can now only have one dog, and it can be any size buy can not be one of their restricted breeds(Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Doberman, German Shepard, some others).

This doesn’t just apply to pure-breads but dogs that are any part these. If you already have one of these dogs before the new rule, you can keep him/her.[quote comment=”196622″]Isn’t there a weight limit in the shipyard bldgs re dogs..I saw one as large as a water buffalo and you needed a front end loader to clean up the mess.I believe weight limit is 40lbs…Some apts must smell like heck.

check with the health dept then give the rental office a call…next a caribou will be allowed.. you could be wrong..Those animals belong in a field or back yard..the fee use to be 500 per year ..unless the lease changed??? Now its getting silly.[quote comment=”196645″]There is no weight limit on dogs in the shipyard. Before recently, you could have up to 2 dogs(for the price of $50/each per month).

already two bit bulls were shot..when are the people going to learn? All theses above dogs mentioned are not to be trusted…they do not belong in apts where kids reside.
1300 lbs of jaw pressure when they lock on to a person…not wise. hope no one has to pay the price.[quote comment=”196648″]check with the health dept then give the rental office a call…next a caribou will be allowed.. you could be wrong..Those animals belong in a field or back yard..the fee use to be 500 per year ..unless the lease changed???
