Hoboken Tourism Flyer

5/9/2008 Blast from the Past:

I found this little Hoboken mailer parody which I made last year. Still sorta relevant, with all this talk of parks and open space in town.

5/10/2007:

I got this in the mail today.

I’d buy post-cards, from this great satire, to send to all the pols in town!!

Or how about stealth-postings, next to Dave’s parks posters in town (banks, Symposia—he’s their landlord, BTW,—etc.)

Pathetic, the dearth (sp.?) of green-space here. And it will only get worse….

Yes, private rooftop parks count toward the open space requirements.

That’s why Maxwell Place can claim 5 acres of open space on their ads.

[quote comment=”26113″]Not only is Pupie’s park a “park”, its considered “open space” similar to the open space at the Shipyard that includes the beat up bushes and mulch between the parking and King’s/Rite Aid/Sparrow’s and probably the open space that’s under water at Maxwell Place… yes, developer’s give back park space that’s underwater. So, I guess, the fourth ward may be prime real estate for developer give backs, eh?[/quote]
I heard a year or two ago that the rooftop terrace lawns at the shipyard count as open space too. Is that true or was that anti-developer propaganda?

Although I preferred Cunningham and Perry to Delea in the 5th ward, I have to admit I did like Delea’s idea of a publicized “open-space meter” for the town, with a target of xx # of acres at the top and the actual attainment of space creeping up from the bottom. Kind of like a library displays outside their building when raising money for a new wing. Maybe that would help keel pressure on the pols not to bend over so much.
