Pier 13

Pier 13 thrills some Hoboken residents; others not so much

The pier at 13th Street has always had some kind of summer activities on it. In years past, it was the “Pier Sessions,” which were bands, artists and food.

This year, Pier 13 has been transformed into a daily venue where you can enjoy cocktails and music with some of the best NYC views in Hoboken. They’re open Monday to Friday from 4pm to 10pm, Saturdays noon to 10pm and Sundays noon to 8pm. Not crazy hours late into the night.

That said, this outdoor venue still causes issues for neighbors because of the acoustics on the water.

Does Pier 13 disturb the peace?

Hoboken resident Jason snapped the above video – and couldn’t really maintain sanity living in his apartment high above the shipyard.

“Is Pier 13 bar is now a regular thing? I hope not. I can’t have a conversation in my own apartment. If Pier 13 really happens regularly you’re gonna have a lot of unhappy people. Why is the music 10x louder on the 13th floor than the ground?”

Supposedly the management of Pier 13 will incorporate a less reverberating sound system going forward – and that July 4th was a “special event.”

If any residents continue to experience quality of life issues from this venue – send your video links via email to hoboken411@gmail.com.

Love Pier 13! Just wish it was open later. 10pm is ridiculously early.

What a disaster. Do the owners of Pier 13 have any clue who lives in the area? Do they not realize that most residence are older or have children? They are catering to the wrong crowd.

If there purpose is to make money, play Frank Sinatra or Coldplay, and do so at a reasonable sound level. Know your clientelle..

I hope they get shut down. The last thing our little sanctuary of Hoboken needs is another bar!
