We know… you were just thinking about how Hoboken needs more road construction, right?
Well today’s your lucky day, as the City is in the planning stages of two new projects—the Court Street Historic Rehabilitation, and the Castle Point Historic Rehabilitation—and will hold meetings on these projects over the next few weeks.
Court Street is a 7.5 block cobblestone street primarily located within the Central Business District and Washington Street Historic District. The street is paved with squared blocks of stone or “setts,” which have sometimes been referred to as cobblestone. Court Street was laid out in 1804 by Colonel John Stevens as part of the original city plan and was likely paved with stone setts from local quarries in the late 1800s.
Castle Point Terrace is a historic yellow brick street that extends from 8th Street to Elysian Park, named after the late-18th to 19th-century estate of Colonel John Stevens. Castle Point Terrace was laid out in 1903-04 and paved with brick at the request of local residents in 1909.
Both projects will need to be executed in accordance to historical preservation standards, and are slated to run for 6 months—starting in Spring of 2019.
A series of meetings will be held in Hoboken City Hall, starting on Wednesday, November 28.
