HUMC a thing of the past? (Updated)
Hospital gone, but building still there (and more!)
Hoboken411 reader Amy decided to look a little deeper into last week’s retro flashback about area hospitals – and found that the “North Hudson Hospital” building isn’t gone, but still there, and larger that ever! To me, it seems like the hospital might have expanded in it’s glory days? (i.e., new wings?) – either that or some developer figured out a way to maximize profits while adhering to “Historical Preservation” guidelines. Also – this is Union City, not Weehawken!
Big development surrounds historic building, though…
I found this a bit interesting – the (only) eight-story monstrosity going up across the street, is run by the well-know Hoboken entity Applied Housing.
Hey, how did Union City get 8-story limitations on their new projects?

Will the hospital eventually be history?
One Hoboken411 reader, who admires images of the past – like this one of the North Hudson Hospital in Weehawken from the early 1900’s – wonders if the Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC) will suffer the same fate? “In 50 years, we’ll see relics of HUMC like this: GONE!”

If you ask many residents in town – it’ll be a LOT sooner than 50 years!
