Stevens Provides 200 more spots

From the City of Hoboken......


As crews continue to clear snow from parking lanes, the process will be significantly easier if residents move their vehicles off-street and into garages or private lots, if possible. To facilitate this process, the City has coordinated with various entities to make additional off-street parking available to residents.

Stevens Institute has agreed to make 200 parking spaces available for free to Hoboken residents to park at the Babbio Center and to the west of the Griffith facility (not to the north) located at 600 Sinatra Drive. Residents may park at these locations from 5 pm on Thursday, December 30 through 8 am on Monday, January 3rd.

“We truly appreciate and thank Stevens Institute for providing free parking to Hoboken residents as we continue our cleanup efforts,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

The parking lot at the Connors School (201 Monroe Street) is available for resident parking on a first-come, first-served basis through noon on Sunday. Parking spaces are still available as of early Thursday afternoon.

Finally, the City is providing discounted garage parking in Municipal Garages B (28 2nd Street) and D (215 Hudson Street) for $5 through 9am on Monday. Garage employees have been notified of the discounted policy, and any residents with concerns about the amount charged should contact the Parking Utility during normal business hours for a refund.
