QotD: Pier A Park an active playing field?
Several Hoboken411 readers, who are dismayed at our lack of playing fields for our taxpaying residents (i.e., the collapsed / closed Sinatra Park field) are wondering if Pier A Park should be converted to an active playing field while the city scrambles to “find” money to fix the dilapidated pier…
Give some green space back to taxpayers!
“Non-Hoboken residents have been using Pier A as their personal ball field for six years so why can’t the Mayor and administration allow the soccer league to play there as well?
As a taxpayer, I’d rather see our passive fields turned into multi-purpose playing fields for our kids and adults who need the field space rather than leaving it solely to the sunbathers and non-permitted league sports (like the football games I saw dominating the field this past weekend).
I’d also expect this new “reformed” government we have to think outside the box, but I won’t hold my breath.”
