A Honda Civic named “Carthage” and a Toyota Corolla named “Gemmiti” located in the Central Avenue municipal parking lot between Bowers & Griffith St. are now available for reservations.

Five Great Reasons to Shop Local!

Shopping Local Central Avenue, Jersey CityFor every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $73 remains in the community. Those dollars help fund local wages, local taxes and other locally owned businesses, as well as donations to local non-profits. This compares to only $43 remaining in the community when you spend $100 at a non-locally owned business. Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage. You can find anything you need locally and your local businesses give back more to the community.
