How come no one ever uses the Hoboken roller rink park?

Back in the day – the Hoboken roller rink park was used often, even creating complaints from neighbors about the massive flood lights blinding the neighborhood.

Now, it seems that the Hoboken roller rink isn’t being used at all – causing some residents to wonder why. With people bitching about the lack of open space, and we need more parks, and so on – what seems to be the issue with this space? I can be used for a multitude of purposes!

Heck – you could even have a “Southwest Hoboken Farmers Market” in this space without hurting traffic or depleting parking.

The last 50 times I’ve walked by here, the gates have been locked. Oh well, sad when that is what is the norm in Hoboken…
