Note that in December 2010 Hoboken Brownstone Company co – Maxwell Place Hoboken- donated the 13.5-acre Maxwell Park in Hoboken to the City. Investing an additional “$2 million into the Maxwell Park project, Hoboken Brownstone converted the remaining property, consisting of 3.5 acres of waterfront land and 10 acres of water, into a popular public destination with a riverfront walkway, a 500-foot fishing pier, a boat launch, playing fields, a children’s playground and a dog run. Perhaps most notably, Maxwell Park features a natural sand beach and a recreation of the 1865 New York Yacht Club Boathouse, the first yacht club boathouse in the United States. Maxwell Park holds the distinction of being Hoboken’s largest waterfront park on the Hudson River ever developed by a private real estate concern.”

Alas we had no such luck and construction continued -albeit with some saying that it was delayed by as much as 13 months.
