HOBOKEN – The city of Hoboken has announced that they have acquired the deed for the Maxwell Place Waterfront Park located near 11th and 12th streets after "extensive negotiations and approval from the City Council."

“I want to thank Community Development Director Brandy Forbes, City Council Quality of Life Subcommittee Chairman Nino Giacchi and members Peter Cunningham and Beth Mason, and the entire City Council for working together to make this happen,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer in a press release.

The waterfront park was originally opened in 2007. The city closed on the deed transfer on Friday, Dec. 17.

As usual, the mayor forgets to thank her predecessor for his hard work and many accomplishments. (I'm not talking about the mayor in federal prison, either.) I'm talking about Dave Roberts, who oversaw the city's tremendous economic growth and an unprecedented expansion of open, public space, including this waterfront park (and pier C Park, and the skate Park, etc. come to think of it). It seems Dawn Zimmer likes to take credit for Roberts' accomplishments and pass blame to the Roberts administration for everything else. Then again, it was Zimmer's council that stonewalled every Roberts initiative, including the budget, which prompted the state takeover. Selective memory, Dawn. Well, here's one voice for Mayor Roberts. Thanks, Dave.
