Ridgewood debate at Hudson Street lot was ‘past versus parking’

A historic village building on Hudson Street was demolished in 1993 in exchange for more parking, and to make way for a parking garage. More than 20 years later, the village is still investigating a garage in the crumbling Hudson Street parking lot.

The former 83-year-old building, which served as a firehouse back when Ridgewood used horse-drawn pumpers, came back into the news recently as the result of plans to preserve a priceless sculpture, which was set aside before the structure was demolished. An adjoining municipal building was demolished as well.

Revisiting this history, a question emerged: Given Ridgewood residents’ ever-expanding parking concerns, are several more parking spots, but no parking garage, still worth it, in exchange for 80-plus years of history?
