The small community, neighborhood feel that brings all of Jersey City together will be lost because without us, there is no community. Jersey City is a city, but we all call it a town because we know our neighbors, work together, and work across so many divisions created by society. Help us continue to make Jersey City special by preserving what makes the city amazing — the people.

Low and mid-income are not money makers for developers where the bottom line is #1. But Jersey City is not just the community of the wealthy and those who can afford to pay almost NYC rent prices. “Developers need to understand they are still coming into an already established community and should work with that community to fill their needs,” Gadsden shared.

The star of the event was 16-year-old Anaya Singh of the Sunrise Movement, who received the loudest ovation of the evening for her impassioned speech about fighting for her future under the specter of a changing planet. Though she roused the crowd with her hopeful rhetoric, particularly in regards to the Green New Deal, the teenage activist was also clear about naming the culprit standing in the way of reform: energy companies. “I think when we have environmental science classes… they focus entirely on the intensity of the problem, and ‘oh, here are the solutions—clean energy, and things like that,” Ms Singh said in response to a question about how climate change could be better addressed in the education system. “But it’s not often understood that there’s a huge barrier to achieving those...

Access to alternative modes of transportation is essential to all residents as the city continues to grow. “Bike sharing has significantly grown in Jersey City and the expansion of the low cost membership program with Citi Bike provides greater accessibility for our residents,” said Mayor Stephen M. Fulop. “As we move forward with plans to create safe, multi-modal streets that support and improve biking in Jersey City, it’s imperative that all of our community members have the opportunity to utilize alternative means of travel.”

Running helps me better familiarize myself with my surroundings. Whether it’s one of the five NYC boroughs or somewhere I’m visiting, being able to run through a neighborhood allows for me to make a deeper connection with where I am.

Running allows you ‘stop and smell the roses’ without actually stopping.

On September 16th, the Newport, Jersey City Newport Half Marathon provided me with the opportunity to experience parts of a neighboring town that I hadn’t previously ventured to see.

As a Hobokenite, I don’t often jog too far past the waterfront. The Newport Half course took me far beyond my typical running routes and into parts of the town I’d never explored before. The run through Liberty State Park was breathtaking and the views of the Statue of Liberty were nothing short of postcard wort...

We walked along the Catskill Creek to the bottom of a gorgeous waterfall located on the property. In the summer, they have boats you can take out on the creek. The waterfall was the most epic small waterfall we have ever seen and provided wonderful photos opportunities. When the snow first melts, I can imagine the water flowing down the cliff and rushing into the creek. There is also a walk to the top of the waterfall past the animals.

In addition to the amazing vendors bringing great appeal to the market, the location of the market is perfect - its prime spot makes it so easy for people coming home from work to stop there and then hop on a bus or back on the path home. “Before or after you shop, you can visit Newark Avenue Pedestrian Mall, walk around, and then go home and enjoy your purchases,” explained the HDSID. It is a great evening activity to make the day a little better.

To fully understand the Union Dry Dock issue in Hoboken we have to go back 30-50 years when the coast of Hudson County was still an industrial Center. Huge names in industry had factories throughout the county such as Maxwell House, Lipton and Hudson Tea, Joseph Dixon Crucible Company, and Colgate-Palmolive. Water powered the factories, the waterway was an easy way to bring goods in and out, and also became an easy dumping ground for waste. 


Fast forward to now when the landscape of Hudson County has changed from industrial to residential and commercial where people actually use the waterfront and appreciate it.

There has been a Dry Dock at 901 Sinatra Drive below Castle Rock and next to the Shipyard Complex for years. “It is a depot to be used for refueling...
