New Hoboken dog run will be impractical
Hoboken “Viaduct Dog Run” will be ridiculously out of the way
Part of this plan includes a dog run in the western-most section. While it looks kind of nice on the architectural renderings – I started looking at the situation from a practical perspective.
For one, I understand that not everyone lives a stone’s throw from a dog park. However, many of Hoboken’s dog parks now are actual destinations. With stunning NYC views, in the middle of commerce, action and life.
However, this planned dog run is so far removed from Hoboken life, you might as well call it Jersey City. As of now, it would be on the fringe of industrial Hoboken, nowhere near a residential building, corner coffee shop, or people. Not even sure you’d get cell phone reception way out there. Look at this map I whipped together to help you understand where it is.
Good idea? Bad idea? “You gotta start somewhere” type idea?
