Parking in Hoboken
Parking in Hoboken can be extremely difficult. Pay attention to the parking signs. In addition to obeying street cleaning rules, be mindful of signs that are filled in with green and say “Parking for Residents Only.” Only Hoboken residents and permit-holders may park on that side. Hoboken aggressively tickets parking violators. Behind the school on Clinton Street between 3rd and 4th Streets, there is some metered parking. If you are unable to find street parking, there is a parking garage on 4th and Clinton.
