Sub-standard waterfront summer (again)
Hoboken Waterfront still quite dormant in areas
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!)
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?
