To help residents cope with the extreme heat, the City of Hoboken is opening a cooling center at the Wallace School gymnasium at 1100 Willow Avenue. The cooling center will open at noon on Tuesday, July 6 and will remain open for at least 24 hours.

Update: A second center added – HHA Senior Building at 220 Adams Street.

City officials will monitor the situation until 10pm on July 6th. If there is no need for the cooling centers, they will close for the night and reopen at 9am.
