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.”
