Odd construction: downtown steakhouse
A building inside a building
Updating this Reader Photo from a few months ago, I noticed a peculiar process happening at the upcoming steakhouse which is supposedly taking the old Downtown Pub spot at Observer and Paterson.
They were building a shell around the old building. Why not just level the entire thing?
Regardless, no Hoboken 4th Ward representative now or in the past (Zimmer, Lenz) – nor is the current Mayor (Zimmer) “fighting” for a park in Southwest Hoboken anymore. That, of course, was one of the campaign slogans you all bought into (and a 25% tax cut, and transparency, and “reform,” I could go on, but you get the point that things turned out much different that voters had expected.)
See original Readerpix: “I’ll take my park medium rare” after the jump…
Hoboken411 reader Luca sent in this picture of Hoboken’s dwindling Southwest Park! Happy New Year!
Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 12/30/2009
Luca didn’t know what was transpiring in SW Hoboken, so I kindly sent her a ton of informative links on Hoboken411.com. She now knows how the city operates! Show your love at the polls next time, Luca!
Anyway, what we now know, is that the SW Parks initiative seems to have been abandoned by the current administration, and well, look at the bright side – carnivores have more traffic-clogging ways to ingest grilled animal meat! God bless America!
[Stay tuned for the next Readerpix entry! – Note: one reader’s photo(s) will be featured from time to time. Unless your photo is time-sensitive – it will be published in the order it was received! Additional note: Your pictures will have a better chance of being published if they’re in “landscape” mode, as opposed to the taller “portrait” modes… ]
