The Return of Summer Streets to Hoboken in 2021

On June 8, the City of Hoboken and Hoboken Business Alliance announced the return of the popular Summer Streets program for 2021. This year, Summer Streets, which also incorporates the City’s Open and Slow Streets programs, will continue to provide additional space for residents to enjoy outdoor dining at local businesses and for recreation activities and socialization.

The relaunch of the Summer Streets program comes after the City of Hoboken received input from 1,472 residents through a survey conducted in April. The results of that survey indicated overwhelmingly popularity for the return of last year’s Open / Slow Streets program with some modifications. According to the survey results, 79% of people wanted the program to return this summer and fall to streets in residential areas of Hoboken. 51% wanted the new program to occur on weekends only and 61% preferred locations that rotate across the city. Respondents indicated that providing additional space for recreation and socialization and improving safety and comfort for pedestrians were their top two priorities for this year’s program.

About Summer Streets in Hoboken

There are two types of Summer Streets in Hoboken:

Pedestrian & Bicycle Priority Streets: these Summer Streets are located on predominately residential blocks. Their primary purpose is to provide additional space for bicyclists and pedestrians to comfortably use the street for recreation, socialization, and transportation. Local traffic is permitted on these blocks, but drivers are discouraged from driving faster than 5 MPH and must replace any barricades they move upon entering or exiting the block. Drivers are also encouraged to pay close attention to their surroundings due to the increased likelihood of bicyclists and pedestrians using the street. Intersecting /cross-streets will remain open, so Summer Street users should look both ways before entering the cross-street that is open to vehicle traffic.

Streets for Dining: 14th Street between Bloomfield Street and Hudson Street is designated as Summer Street with the primary purpose of providing additional space outdoor dining. Vehicle traffic is not permitted on these blocks.

To learn more about repurposing streets as shared public spaces, please visit NACTO's Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery page.
