Uptown Hoboken waterfront future

What lies ahead for the uptown Hoboken waterfront?

Every time I see that ghastly North Hudson Sewerage Authority quad pump channeling treated raw sewage into the Hudson River – I get a bit queasy.

However, even more pressing is – what exactly is in store for the uptown Hoboken waterfront?

We all know that the low elevation both uptown and downtown was a prime reason Hurricane Sandy devastated Hoboken with the vicious storm surge.

And with talk of some Hoboken Sea Walls “solving the problem,” it makes you wonder what the heck they’re still doing uptown.

Seems like progress is continuing on the 1600 Park project. Why? Shouldn’t they just STOP everything until they figure out what the “grand plan” is?

Why spend property taxpayer dollars to build a park that might just be deemed unacceptable and will have to be re-built or re-configured? Just like that asinine astro-turf field that had to be replaced at Sinatra Park, it appears that no one is taking a pause to look at the bigger picture, but dollars flow and work continues nonetheless. Anyone paying attention?

What would your plan be for the uptown Hoboken waterfront?

I agree too – they should just stop work up there and get an overall comprehensive plan in place and stick to it. When things go in all piecemeal it usually results in problems down the line and a lot of wasted money in redoing stuff that should have never have been done in the first place. We have never had a park in that area before – what is the big rush now? Oh wait, let me guess – the elections are coming up soon and it looks good on someone’s record to have added a new park.

Agreed- they definitely need to re-group before continuing any more work. It’s just a waste otherwise!

Can’t they tear those two stupid bridges down and just flatten everything out so Hoboken isn’t so cut off from the north…? They’re such old, crappy structures and they’re falling apart… and they simply cross over the light rail train tracks if I’m not mistaken. So what if cars have to drive over light rail tracks and they have put signals in…..? it happens in Weehawken.

Solution? More condos and bars! No shortage of fundraisers around here, so what needs to change?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
