PS - from the second article above from 1992. If you ever thought your vote in an election doesnt matter, it matters most in local elections. Two different votes relating to our waterfront, long before social media, the internet or text phones. One passed by 12 votes and one by 231 votes and are why we have both Pier A and Pier C parks today:
April 1992 NY Times article – “…Preliminary results from the City Clerk's office had the plan defeated by 231 votes, 5,547 to 5,316. Officials later said the margin was 341 votes, but said they did not have the total number available. The office said that about 60 percent of Hoboken's 19,145 registered voters cast ballots. The first plan to go to a referendum, a larger plan to redevelop Hoboken's crumbling waterfront, was defeated in July 1990 by 12 votes.”
