About Jersey City NJ

A propos

There's more going on in Jersey City than meets the eye. There is an active and dynamic community effort underway to make JC greener. The purpose of this map is to capture that community knowledge, the projects and programs of all the various stakeholders across the city, and to help tell the really rich narrative of JC on this Green Map, both historically and for understanding our city in real-time so we can plan for our future. Another purpose of this map making enterprise is to use Green Map as a community building tool to encourage partnerships and neighborhood collaborations; also, we envision it as a way to bring municipal officials and community members together for planning discussions on sustainability initiatives throughout the city.

OOPS - May be Numero Duo via Skinner Park Anonyme

OOPS - May be Numero Duo via this reply as well since th first One did not seem to post (like before?)

Gee, my comment (and a repeat) are listed as "Anonymous." Anyone who knows me, also knows rather well, that "Anonymous' is neither on of my names and/or my personality! Joe Fanning - 40 Arlington- later on North Arlington, then Glen Ridge, now New London, NH.

A tid bit about Arlington Ave is that despite being the FIRST house on the East side - it was # 40 (corner of Bayview). as a kid, me, my siblings and cousins (grew up at 42) could never figure out about "what happened to the other 39 homes."

Grew up on Arlington Ave at Skinner Park Anonyme

Grew up on Arlington Ave at Bayview. Thus, Skinner was *my* park for a good 15 years. Of course, always thought the Bayside Park was a 'real big' park and, definitely, that THE Lincoln Park was the all time ultimate. Nevertheless, walked, biked, skated, sledded down Wilkinson to Skinner a zillion and one times. Though now living in rural NH still head back to JC around Christmas time to see the area and visit our grammar school (St. Pat's) at THE Junction for a concert. My spouse is from Union St "across the Blvd." Thus, while we can speak about numerous things we constantly recall. However, Skinner is MINE, whereas we can *only* mutually converse really about the Arlington Park since it was so close to the school.
