Why would this be a bad idea? 5 stories - and 30 units - is relatively small scale, not overly-large relative to the scale of the apartment buildings on Summit Avenue, and the industrial buildings down the hill. Historically, the corner lot had a building on it http://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/HUDSON_COUNTY/JC_BayonnePlatbook/JC_Bayonne_9_plt17/index.htm

While personally, as a middle-aged, relatively sedate person, I appreciate "vest-pocket" parks for passive enjoyment, I'm not sure they bring the level of amenity to every neighborhood. Could there be a playground incorporated, to accommodate some, if not all of the neighbors? Better to control all the private parking which destroys planted front yards and street trees in front of rowhouses.
