Is this the next Hoboken sinkhole?
Next Hoboken sinkhole at 7th & Jackson?
Hoboken411 reader “NJP” sent in a note a few days ago about what might just be the start of the next Hoboken sinkhole.
“Thought you’d like to see the latest in Hoboken’s failing infrastructure. I called the city about the corner of 7th and Jackson and was told “someone would take a look…” Looks like its only getting worse.”
We went and took a look ourselves yesterday – and it definitely appeared precariously close to caving in. Apparently it did get worse, as a police officer was stationed nearby to divert oncoming traffic around it.
Wonder if the city will properly repair it or use the simple “band-aid approach” that might only lead to worse conditions in the future (like what caused the Sinatra Drive sinkhole back in 2010.)
