“Hoboken, like many urban communities, has a growing appetite for more open space, whether it be for recreation, socialization, or simply enjoying the waterfront views with family and friends,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“I look forward to even more people taking advantage of this opportunity to enjoy this safe open space in our mile square city this summer.”

Summer Streets is meant to provide additional open space for recreation along Hoboken’s waterfront in the summer. On Sunday, July 30, and Sunday, Aug. 6, Sinatra Drive between Fourth and 11th Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Temporary No Parking signs will be posted in advance of the event, as drivers will not be permitted to drive on Sinatra Drive between Fourth Street and 11th Street during Summer Streets hours.

Hoboken police officers will also be on hand to provide traffic control at either end of the closed roadway.

Summer Streets are also scheduled to take place on Sundays through Labor Day on August 13th, August 20th, August 27th, and September 3rd.

The city will track usage during the first two weekends to determine times when Summer Streets closures should take place on the remaining Sundays through Labor Day weekend.

The Summer Streets program complements the ongoing Sinatra Drive Redesign Project, which will beautify the streetscape and improve access, connectivity, and safety for all users on the stretch of roadway between Fourth and Hudson Streets.
