Delicate work involved with Hoboken Deconstruction
Row houses (or brownstones) have always fascinated me. With such small lot sizes, it’s clear that interior space is much more important than a larger yard outside. How else could you cram 60,000 people into a square mile or so?
Imagine if Hoboken was laid out like much of the suburbs in the NYC tri-state area? If every “lot” was a modest one acre in size, we’d have less than 800 homes in Hoboken. Compared with around 20,000 or more!
Anyway – it’s amazing when one of the “row houses” is demolished – all without destroying adjacent properties. One such building getting knocked down this winter near 5th & Grand Streets, next to Dom’s Bakery. Wonder if they ever make some cool discoveries when they do this? Like buried treasure or finding Jimmy Hoffa.
