Re: Downtown Jersey City - Paulus Hook - Liberty Harbor - Historic Downtown

There is actually a large, well connected community down there. It's a very small town that just happens to be right next to downtown NY. My buddy owns a recording studio off Grove St and I've met many other people who are really cool and are trying to build something (as in a community). If the same thing was in Brooklyn it would all be a bunch of hipster ass holes.

Re: Downtown Jersey City - Paulus Hook - Liberty Harbor - Historic Downtown

My recent visit to NYC included a side-trip to a "Hipster Petting Zoo" in Sunset Park.

The urban form did call to mind certain aspects of my native East Boston (mainly the section of the neighborhood between Breman Street and Eagle Hill).

I hope that upzoning the East Boston waterfront turns out like what we see here.
