Dreaming of Hoboken Parks

How many parks are really necessary for a city like Hoboken?

Some folks in town clamor for “More parks! More parks!” and will never be happy with living in an urban environment. While others I know, actually don’t mind our concrete jungle – and know for sure, that in order to get REAL outdoors, and not cookie-cutter parks where everyone just stares at each other – you need to travel far outside Hoboken to get it.

But last week – I actually had a dream where I was enjoying a relatively empty Pier A Park during a sunset, nice breeze and fresh air. I decided the next day to try and re-create that image I dreamt – and this is what I saw below:

We definitely don’t have enough softball fields, soccer fields, etc. It is sad that Hoboken Sports Leagues have to play in neighboring towns and cities. More money would be spent at local businesses if they could play here too – more players would attend before and after game meals and drinks…

When the city completes it planned parks, they’ll be ample fields for playing. The down side is— you might not live long enough to see it.[quote comment=”214232″]We definitely don’t have enough softball fields, soccer fields, etc. It is sad that Hoboken Sports Leagues have to play in neighboring towns and cities.

In a mile square city, such as Hoboken let us realize that we have many open space areas. The entire waterfront, Christopher Columbus Park, Church Square Park, etc. and numerous playgrounds for our children. Just how many parks do the residents need? You knew when you moved to Hoboken it was a town filled with bars, restaurants, condos, etc. it was convenient to NYC. Now many residents are complaining more open space? Those condos were built to accomodate the influx of young professionals who wanted an easier commute to work, well guess what, you got what you wanted. If you wanted more open space you should have moved to the suburbs! No-one seems to be satisfied with anything, be thankful for what you have!!!!! :0
