From the City of Hoboken, an update on River Street resurfacing work to being on May 16th…

Residents and visitors are advised to expect traffic delays in the area and to consider alternate routes.

  1. Last night was awful. Getting to sleep was a pain in the ass with all those jackhammers going. The laughable part is they were trying to be "convenient" by doing everything in the middle of the night. Convenient to who? The handful of drivers that go down River Street at those hours? Definitely not convenient to the hundreds of residents and guests along that strip. Looking forward to being able to actually sleep tonight.

  2. Same here… Last night was awful. I called the non-emergency police and they said they'd gotten a handful of calls from 205, 235, 333 and the W about the noise. I called City Hall this morning and I had it brought to the Mayor's attention. Convenient to who is right!? Not the thousands of people that live in the 4 buildings yards away! Just ridiculous! Please call the office and help me complain 201-420-5629! Thanks!

  3. This is awesome that we don't have to suffer through another night of this. But it still doesn't make up for how extremely inconsiderate last night was. Dawn Zimmerman is not looking out for the residents of Hoboken. This should be her last term in office.

  4. A source in the Administration confirmed that this change was in response to complaints from residents. Just for the sake of accuracy, the Mayor's name is Dawn Zimmer and not Zimmerman. If it was you might consider not wearing a hoodie. :)

    Lost sleep notwithstanding, paving roads only during daylight hours will likely cause traffic issues during the day as well as the potential for increased costs, but based on what the readers are saying here that is a worthwhile tradeoff. Have a good night's sleep readers. :)

  5. Thanks for the correction! I have been blasting the wrong name all over twitter.

    The parking situation in Hoboken is atrocious, and it's a crime how much of a revenue generator she uses tickets as. I missed renewing my parking pass by 1 DAY and my car got booted.

    The money she tried to take away from the local businesses by canceling the St. Pattys Day parade (didn't really work, we still partied hard), while warranted due to past behavior from New Yorkers crossing the pond, looked more like a giant power trip. And saying it was due to the concern of residents, when after last night it is clear she is more concerned about visiting "pedestrian volume" , is laughable.

    It is time for a change. I am actually taking an active interest in polictics now after last nights BS.

  6. Jim G- Glad to see you take an interest in politics but I have studied this issue and there are three types of enforcement of parking rules: Strict, selective, and no enforcement. No enforcement is unworkable and dangerous if cars are allowed to park illegally in certain areas as this is a threat to public safety.

    That leaves us with two options: Selective enforcement used to occur in Hoboken where if you were a friend of the cops or the administration you got a free pass. Those days are over as one should easily see can lead to favoritism or corruption.

    The way that works is to enforce the rules by the book or change the rules through the legislative process. If there are rules that are not to your liking you can look up your City Council members and contact them to change the rules as to your liking. The other suggestion I could make would be to shell out money for a garage. In fact the Municipal Garage wait list was recently eliminated so you might want to consider that if you don't already have a garage.

    This is not a political website but feel free to make recommendations as to what changes you want to see. Have a nice day and thank you for reading.

  7. The latest update for those residents who could have issues with parking due to the resurfacing of River Street from the City of Hoboken:

    FREE GARAGE PARKING FOR RESIDENTS ON RIVER STREET

    Due to the unpredictable access to driveways and off-street parking as a result of the resurfacing work on River Street between Hudson Place and 4th Street, the City will be providing free garage parking to residents affected by the work. Free parking will be available in municipal Garage B (entrance on 2nd Street between River Street and Hudson Street) and Garage D (entrance on Hudson Street between 2nd Street and 3rd Street) from 8pm on Wednesday, May 16 to noon on Friday, May 18. Residents who need to exit a garage via River Street are advised to exit by 8am on Thursday, May 17, park in a municipal garage, or on-street. Free garage parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
