Illegal Parking by Hoboken Royalty
Here’s a real good photo timeline of “privileged parking” in action in Hoboken!

In plain sight
So I’m at 2nd and Washington and a Mercedes SUV pulls up and parks illegally on the corner. Mark Settembre, partner in URSA – as in Tarragon/URSA (Northwest, Northwest Edge Redevelopment) – exits the vehicle and sits down at the Brass Rail’s sidewalk café.
Minutes later, Dominic Lisa, Chair of the Hoboken Zoning Board, parks his Lexus illegally on the same corner and joins Settembre.
Of course, the parking privileges are what first caught my eye. But the real question is: Why is the Chair of the Zoning Board lunching with Hoboken’s mega-developer? This is the third time I’ve seen them (the first two times at Tutta Pasta). Also… Lisa lives at One Marine View Plaza (4th and Hudson). Why does he drive to the Brass Rail (Second and Washington)?
See what did (and didn’t) happen after the jump!!
(Hoboken Royalty – continued…)
Settembre and Lisa proceed to have lunch (Settembre – gray shirt; Lisa – black shirt). This is just wrong…
Traffic cop couldn’t care less…
However, a motorcycle cop was ticketing cars in vicinity… and an HPU employee was checking metered parking… no problem for these two!
Wouldn’t you like to just park anywhere for a quick sidewalk lunch?
