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!
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?”
