Sub-standard waterfront summer (again)

Hoboken Waterfront still quite dormant in areas

5/25/2012 Update:

Just a brief update since nearly a year has passed since the beginning of last summer – and the Crepe Grill spot at Sinatra Park still remains empty – with some serious litigation coming down the line as well. You’d think a prime piece of real estate like this would be thriving. Nope – not in Hoboken!

But feel free to chime in with what business you’d think would have no problem succeeding in this spot! (And have a great Memorial Day weekend as well!)

Crepe Grill at Sinatra Park in Hoboken NJ remains vacant - Sub-standard waterfront summer (again)

Hoboken Lackadaisical with waterfront commerce

6/24/2011:

The poor guys who ran the now doomed Crepe Grill – in one of the most desirous waterfront locations in the NYC tri-state area got the short end of the stick in a big way.

The now vacant eatery at Sinatra Park is a prime location for summer fun in Hoboken. But because of various disasters like the collapsed pier by the soccer field – and the poorly managed and oft-delayed construction of Pier C Park, the low foot-traffic in this spot caused the ultimate demise of what should have been a successful business.

The owners made many pleas to the city administration – only to get left out to dry. I believe there was talks of a pending lawsuit out there, because the owners felt the city should have lent a hand to help keep the business above water. But it didn’t happen.

Now that the Crepe Grill is gone – what business should go here?

Crepe Grill Doomed and sits empty in Hoboken while the city does nothing to help - Sub-standard waterfront summer (again)

Everything the city has their hands in somehow gets botched.

A simple bar with big windows and plenty of outdoor space would do great here.

The Sinatra Cafe building is most likely going to be torn down if/when the field is rebuilt. The plan is/was to reorient the field 90 degrees so that it is located on land, not over the river.
