Five Great Reasons to Shop Local!Posted March 1, 2014; Updated April 9, 2014
For 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.

NJ Transit is expanding the midday and Saturday service of its No. 119 bus route, which includes Central Avenue, to mitigate the impact of the Pulaski Skyway shutdown. Starting on Monday, April 21, the 119 bus will operate every 30 minutes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays and every 60 minutes between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturdays. Prior to this expansion, the 119 bus only operated on weekdays during peak periods.
Beginning Saturday April 12, 2014, the northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck. Additionally, Route 139 Upper Level will be closed and detours through local streets will occur starting in May 2014. This major rehabilitation project will directly affect Hudson County's midsection (between the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels) including The Heights and Journal Square sections of Jersey City. Please stay up to date on the project as it progresses and plan accordingly.
