Where do you park in Hoboken?
Hoboken Street parking vs. Garage parking – which is better?
Face it, having a car in Hoboken is very difficult. If it’s not the horrific roads or flood conditions, it’s the entitled pedestrians you need to watch out for, or drunk drivers smashing into you. But the most painful thing is parking on the street.
But where do YOU park in Hoboken?
Garage Parking is a no-brainer in Hoboken
Not just that it’s hard enough to find parking (hey council “reformers” what happened to those 700 spots you “freed up” because of corner cars?) – but once you DO find a spot, the city finds some way to boot you, ticket you and tow you. A racket for sure.
But with all that difficulty, you’d think that a majority of drivers would seek out alternatives – like parking in a friggin’ Hoboken Parking Garage. At most, these spots cost around $300/month – and not only do they eliminate the “merry go round” of trying to find a spot at rush hour, they also keep your car safe and dry. The comfort of not having to worry about street sweepers or parking enforcement maniacs is priceless.
So why doesn’t everyone try to get a spot in a garage? Is that monthly cost SUCH a burden that people can’t make ends meet? If so – wow, perhaps people should look into either living elsewhere or getting better jobs.
