Hoboken to create open streets 4th of July weekend on Sinatra Drive

Hoboken’s “open streets” program will continue this weekend along Hoboken’s waterfront on Sinatra Drive and other nearby streets announced Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla today. Hoboken’s “open” and “slow” streets program, which provides additional space for socially distant outdoor activities and alleviates overcrowding in other public locations, has been utilized by thousands of residents over the past two months. Permitted activities along the open streets include biking, walking and jogging, while congregating is prohibited. Face masks are required when utilizing the open streets.

“We are continuing to make the best use of our public spaces for outdoor activities, which we know are a safer alternative to gathering indoors,” said Mayor Bhalla. “Our open and slow streets programs have provided residents with more room to walk, jog and bike while remaining socially distant. Outdoor exercise is an important part of remaining healthy during this pandemic and we encourage our residents to take advantage of our open streets this July 4 weekend.”

The complete list of open streets, which restricts vehicular traffic, include:

  • Sinatra Drive between Newark Street and 11th Street: 8 am until 11 pm (July 4), 8 am until 8 pm (July 5)
  • Sinatra Drive North between Sinatra Drive and 12th Street: 8 am until 11 pm (July 4), 8 am until 8 pm (July 5)
  • Hudson Street between 11th Street and 14th Street: 4 pm until 11 pm (July 4)
  • 14th Street between Hudson Street and Sinatra Drive North: 4 pm until 11 pm (July 4)

Residents with vehicles legally parked along Sinatra Drive and other open streets do not need to move their cars. No parking signs, if posted, should continue to be observed. If residents need to utilize vehicles parked along the open streets over the weekend, they are encouraged to move vehicles outside of the hours of the open streets. Vehicles can be accessed during the hours of operation of the open streets by proceeding with extreme caution and driving no more than 5 miles per hour.

Update on historic preservation efforts for Lackawanna Records Building hoboken

Below is an update from the City of Hoboken on historic preservation efforts for the Lackawanna Records building at Hoboken Terminal:

Since August of 2019, the City of Hoboken has been engaged in a “Section 106” review process with New Jersey Transit (NJT), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office (HPO), the Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission (HPC), and other entities and stakeholders to explore alternatives to NJT’s proposed demolition of the Lackawanna Records Building at Hoboken Terminal. The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) issued a Notice of Unsafe Structure to New Jersey Transit (NJT) after a visual inspection on January 3 of the Lackawanna Records Building at Hoboken Terminal. 
 
As of today, which marks the deadline for the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs to consider the proposed deconstruction of the Records Building, there is no signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the FTA, NJT and HPO. and no agreed-upon alternative, despite the City’s best efforts. However, the City will continue communications with the respective parties to relay the position of Hoboken residents as expressed during the public comment period, negotiate a preferred alternative, and pursue additional requests to delay the DCA deadline.
 
NJT produced a draft Alternatives Analysis (sent to the consulting parties March 2 and May 19) and draft MOA (sent June 8), putting forth Alternative #6 – Demolition With Salvage of Historic Materials, as the preferred alternative. However, this alternative is in conflict with the City’s preference for 1) adaptive reuse in place, or if necessary 2) a hybrid approach of demolition with salvage of historic materials and eventual relocation/reconstruction, which was conveyed in a June 9th letter from Mayor Bhalla’s office to Kevin Corbett, the Executive Director of New Jersey Transit. Mr. Corbett’s response in a June 12th letter noted the “intent to honor” the City’s requests but re-affirmed NJT’s position to pursue careful demolition preceding the development of a plan to reuse historic materials.  
 
About the Records Building
 
The Lackawanna Records Building was designed by noted architect Frank J. Nies, constructed in 1904 by the Delaware Lackawanna and Western Railroad, and once stored the vast archives of the engineering and law departments for the entire railroad company. It is located at the northern border of the NJ TRANSIT Hoboken Rail Yard on Observer Highway between Washington and Hudson streets. NJ TRANSIT has owned the building since 1983. It is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing resource to both the Old Main Delaware Lackawanna and Western Railroad Historic District and the Hoboken Historic District.
 
City Efforts to Prevent Demolition
 
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic coincided with the public comment portion of the Section 106 process and the March 17 public meeting to discuss alternatives to demolition was cancelled. The City of Hoboken successfully urged New Jersey Transit to extend public comment to include an April 16 virtual meeting, where both attendees and a City-produced survey overwhelmingly expressed support for Alternative #4 (adaptive reuse in place) and disapproval of Alternative #7 (demolition without salvage) from NJT’s draft Alternatives Analysis. More recent City actions to delay the building’s demolition and ensure its eventual preservation include:

9/11 Memorial Blood Drive

New “Slow Streets” Enhances Administration’s Various Safety Initiatives to Accommodate the Current Need for more Space, Especially in Urban Areas

Mayor Steven M. Fulop announces the historic implementation of a Slow Streets Pilot Program in Jersey City launching today to enhance COVID-19 safety measures by supporting safe outdoor activity and recreation for residents’ physical and mental health. The innovative plan provides residents additional open space by designating certain streets throughout Jersey City as “Slow Streets” which will be temporarily closed to through traffic, with access for local traffic only at very low speeds while maintaining all existing parking.  Slow Streets will have partial closures at intersections to allow for more comfortable use for adequate physically distant walking, jogging, biking, exercising, commuting, and playing all across the city.
