    Is there a slip into the water here say for a jetski? Someone had told me you can drop a jet ski in here where the Kayakers launch.

    Monk you can’t backup a trailer there and I think the HPD would not take kindly to someone wheeling a jet ski over there on a ski tote. Jet skis are registered as boats in NJ so whatever boating and mooring laws apply. This is Hoboken so there is bound to be issues if you were to try and launch or even moor out there. There is a no mooring sign posted.

    Use the public boat launch at Libery State Park. There is a machine there to buy a daily launch pass and plenty of parking for trailers.

    The Maxwell Beach should be opening soon. It will be private/public. I have seen kyackers pull up there but nothing else. It will be interesting to see what kind of trouble will be caused once that sliver of sand is opened to the public.

    Here is the best idea to pay for a nice park that most “Adults” use.
    Why we do not ask the people that manage “hoboken adult soccer” to pay for a new field. They have been making 50-60 dollars per person for the last 4 or 5 years, 3 or 4 seasons per year, with 3 to 5 leagues. Each league 100 players each.
    Lets make the math 100p*5leagues*4seasons*4years*60bucks= 480,000 dollars.
    Just to be fair they only spend 5 bucks on the t-shirts and 10 bucks per game on the referee + some balls. ( 100,000 problably )

    I wonder what the city did with the money from Mercades/BMW (I don’t remember which company exactly) when they shot that TV commercial on this field right before they put the atroturf in a few years ago?

    It was Mercedes Benz. Soccer Moms commercial.

    My problem is that kids use this field less than the adult private citizens and if we are paying to play either it should be more money so the city can improve fields and parks.
    Or it should be Exactly “FREE” because we already tax to the max.

    I can’t follow your logic? Your kids use the fields less than adults, so what? So the “adult private citizens” should pay to have it fixed?

    By your logic, the parents of school-aged children should be covering the full cost of the school system. Afterall, the kids use the school much more than I do.

    My point is, that in a community, we all pay in and we all take out. You can’t suggest privatising the expense of public amneties because it is convenient for your situation.

    Correct. As a resident of a community 50 miles away, I’ll add a little fodder to the discussion. I’ve visited Hoboken 5 times in the past year, spending $3k+ on food, lodging, and shopping.

    I hadn’t visited Hoboken in 20+ years, but a soccer game brought me to Sinatra Park and I liked what I saw. My wife and I will be spending a long weekend at the W in April.

    The point is that public amenities benefit the entire community and make Hoboken a desirable place to live and/or visit.

    “lodging”? are you sure you were in hoboken? because we don’t have a hotel yet, so you must have spent money on lodging elswhere. and frankly i can’t see how you coming to hoboken with your big SUV and your load of kids is some big benefit to the residents here.

  9. truth1 says:

    With imagination and effort, family attractions can be added to this park and this combined with the W Hotel can greatly enhance Hoboken’s position for recreaction, dining, family fun and of course, help the local economy.Hopefully, the new Mayor and the governing body can make this happen.

  10. strand tramp says:

    “FAMILY ATTRACTIONS” added to this “park”? it’s a waterfront. that is attraction enough, haven’t you noticed? that’s like saying we need to give tax breaks to developers or they won’t build in hoboken!! WTF is wrong with you?? “FAMILY ATTRACTIONS”?? you know who spends a lot of money? NOT SOCCER PARENTS AND THEIR HERD OF F’NG BRATS. i’ll tell you who spends a lot of money, people who want to stay away from you and your family.

    Now Strand Tramp, be fair: here are plenty of family attractions to enjoy above/beyond the simple skyline of NYC. For example, there’s Sybil’s Cave…a stunning tribute to our jackass of a mayor’s profligate spending. Kids will enjoy looking at a hole in the side of a filthy hill and spending hours identifying myriad items of trash that have been hidden amongst the weeds. While we’re at it, let’s not forget the breathtaking vista of sh*t (literally!) floating in the Hudson. Behold the power of the stench of raw human waste as it winds its way down the mighty Hudson and out to the open seas – truly an epic maritime spectacle. Finally, spend a day with the lovable crab-fisherman our on one of our many piers. Your kids will love checking out the disgusting things these hearty, yet salty characters pull from our river including crabs, rotten fish and the classic, ‘I think it’s a hand!’ Yes, the Hoboken waterfront really is a World of Wonder for all to enjoy!
