This isn’t New York!

September 2, 2014

It used to be that New York wasn’t Amsterdam. Now Jersey City isn’t New York!

There are some longtime Jersey City residents who oppose the plaza.

“It’s bad enough they closed it to traffic, but the space is only going to attract a bad element,” said Frank Mezilli, who has lived in the city since 1961.

A friend of Mr. Mezilli’s, Christina DeFelice, agreed.

“They’re trying to turn it into New York City or Hoboken, and it’s not,” she said.

      Hoboken isn’t Jersey City, and Bayonne isn’t Hoboken! Has the world gone crazy?
