Curb your noise!

On Park Ave., between 12th and 13th Streets are not one, but four “curb your noise level” signs.

Why does this street in particular have so many of these signs? Does anyone obey them? Were these installed to appease nearby residents when the previous Tonic / Martini Blue bar/lounge was first opened? Anyone recall?

If that’s the case, shouldn’t these signs pretty much be up around every bar or restaurant in Hoboken?

How about no jack hammering at 7am signs?

hob411 your guess is correct. Before Tonic/Martini Blue there used to be a bar in that location called the Billabong whose patrons used to wake everyone up in the neighborhood yelling and carrying on, tossing garbage cans, etc. The signs went up during that time. And yes, there should be more of them around town, but I would prefer more “no honking” signs.

Is it the same concept as curbing your dog?

I think that Park between 13th and 14th was two-way, althought that seems crazy now. Maybe it was from all the beeping as moterists then had to turn right onto 13th when it went one-way again.

I’m pretty sure they’ve been up for over 10 years. I don’t remember why they went up but it could be bars. (Do you remember the commotion about the size of Ted and Jo’s bar?)

One theory I have is they used to be handicapped spaces and rather than removing the sign pole when the sport is no longer reserved the city put up another sign.  Wasn’t there a scandal/crack down on improper handicapped spots a ways back? That did happen with the no horn blowing sign you mention a few weeks ago (not that was an improper spot).
