Extended sidewalks & curbs: About time!
Hoboken finally gets around to making pedestrian improvements
It doesn’t take a genius or six-figure cronies at City Hall to figure out simple ways to improve pedestrian safety. It just takes a little common sense and wherewithal.
The problem with getting things done in a city filled with egotistical and in-fighting politicians is – well, that is the problem exactly.
For nearly FIVE YEARS, Hoboken411 has been giving the city of Hoboken FREE common sense ideas, like these curb-extensions implemented near the PATH station downtown. It was one of my first Intersection Tutorials back in 2006. I even praised a similar curb design near the Monroe Center back in 2007. Definitely not an epiphany or brilliant concept invented recently here in Hoboken.
These improvements, while logical, don’t deserve a round of applause or standing ovations – rather should be filed under: “Better late than never. Took long enough! Now get back to work, taxpayer funded employees of the residents!”
