Readerpix: Sign Overload!
Can we have our sidewalks back?
Hoboken411 reader Joe thinks the desperate “sidewalk marketing” has gotten out of control (and notice it’s a block that Mayor Roberts owns property??)
“Once again the sidewalk sign situation is getting out of hand. Here’s a picture I shot this afternoon. There is no reason the sidewalks should be littered with this many signs. At the very most, business should be limited to one sign during business hours, placed up against the building. Places with outdoor seating shouldn’t be allowed to further intrude into the sidewalk with signs placed outside the seating area.
I keep hearing from our city officials how this is such a ‘walkable’ city. It seems many of them don’t walk it themselves very often, or I’m sure they’d be aggravated over bumping into these signs left and right as well.”
