Zoning Board Approves Expanded Hoboken American Legion Post, Providing Shelter for Homeless Veterans
An ambitious redesign of the Hoboken American Legion Post 107, which will provide shelter for a half-dozen homeless veterans, has been approved by the Hoboken Zoning Board.
The Hoboken American Legion was washed out in Superstorm Sandy, with the original HQ restored last January. This new plan at 308 Second Street—coordinated between the Legion, Monarch Housing, the Hoboken Shelter, and the City of Hoboken—will serve as a flood-proof community center with six units available to area veterans in need.
“This project provides six units of affordable housing for homeless veterans,” says Zoning Board member Phil Cohen, “addressing, in a small way, the shameful fact that so many New Jersey veterans who have made extraordinary sacrifices for our country are now homeless.”
