Viaduct Dog Park in Hoboken
We’re big fans of dogs. And anytime something “pro-dog” happens, we tend to be supportive of it. Like the recently opened viaduct dog park at 14th & Madison Streets. In the quite possibly least active and most far removed area of Hoboken.
Hardly anyone seems to use it – and despite good lighting, I doubt weaker members of society would want to “risk it” in this area of town – especially at night.
Be that as it may – it’s still a dog park.
This is one of those circumstances where I’d have a lot more respect for builders and city-hall bobble-heads if they DIDN’T hype it up and use it as a political football. There was probably nothing BUT a dog park that would work for this stretch of wasteland near the light rail tracks, so it definitely made sense.
But it will likely see more action in 10 years, when this area of town is wall-to-wall skyscrapers and dry cleaners, so that’s good news!
