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

Hoboken Lackadaisical with waterfront commerce


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?

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.

How about a planetarium, a museum, a music school, or even a chess club!!! 💡

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.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
