POP-UP GALLERY AT THE ENCLAVE RENTAL BUILDING IN JERSEY CITY TO CELEBRATE NEWEST MURAL FROM ACCLAIMED ARTIST RON ENGLISH

Space is Limited and Tickets are Required for the Free Public Event From 6 to 9 p.m. on August 8th at 260-Home Building at 675 Monmouth Street

Ron English, the wildly popular artist whose unique style mixing superheroes and comic strips with art history has made him one of the country’s most recognizable artists, is putting the finishing touches on his newest public work in Jersey City – a 60’ mural located at the intersection of Erie and 16th Streets.

GrinPopWhiteTrademark.jpgThe artwork is the latest installment in Jersey City’s renowned Mural Arts Program and its completion will be celebrated with Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop during a free public POP-Up gallery on Thursday, August 8th within The Enclave rental building at 675 Monmouth Street.  Space is limited for the evening event and tickets are required to attend. Free tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/popaganda-jersey-city-pop-up-tickets-66604113697

The special cocktail event will be highlighted by banner art from Mr. English, who describes his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones as “POPaganda.”  Found throughout the world as street art, in museums, in movies and books and television, his unforgettable works captivate audiences with an arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama.  The gallery will also feature “POPaganda” merchandise for sale.

Sponsored by the development team behind The Enclave, BNE Real Estate Group, Hoboken Brownstone Company and McKinney Properties, the event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the building’s indoor/outdoor rooftop amenity deck.

 “Ron English is one of the best street artists in the world who lived in Jersey City for some time,” Mayor Fulop said. “It is great to have him back in our city as part of the Mural Arts Program, which has become one of the best in the country.”

 Initiated in 2013, and funded by a Clean Communities Grant, the Jersey City Mural Arts Program (JCMAP) is a Mayor’s Office Initiative that links established and emerging local, national and international mural artists with property owners citywide.  The acclaimed public art program currently showcases nearly 140 murals citywide created by artists from 16 countries, 7 U.S. States and dozens of Jersey City’s local artists.  The Mural Arts Program has grown in prominence and notoriety, attracting named artists – such as Kobra, Shepard Fairey, MadC, and Pixel Pancho – and establishing Jersey City as a top U.S. urban area for renowned public graffiti and street art.

The Mural Arts Program has commissioned works that support local art and beautify neighborhoods by programming public spaces with outdoor paintings that deter graffiti and incorporate the cultural and historical aspects of different neighborhoods. The Ron English mural, and others like it in Jersey City, offer accessible, authentic artwork that can help enhance and re-energize neighborhoods through creativity and aesthetic beauty.

TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS ABOUND WITH LYFT PARTNERSHIP AT THE ENCLAVE, JERSEY CITY’S NEWEST RENTAL COMMUNITY

Having just recently launched leasing earlier this Summer, The Enclave is quickly gaining recognition as Jersey City’s hottest new rental destination with over 65% of its residences already spoken for. But to developers BNE Real Estate Group, Hoboken Brownstone Company and McKinney Properties, the community’s early success is no surprise.

Citi Bike“We tailored every aspect of this building to suit the needs and wants of our urban renters, sparing no detail in creating a place of connection,” said Jonathan Schwartz, partner at BNE. “From our apartments to our amenities to the many transportation options offered through our newly-launched partnership with Lyft and Citi Bike, our residents are at the center of all that’s happening throughout our surrounding neighborhood.”

Lyft, a transportation network, recently announced its partnership with The Enclave as the community’s official transportation partner. Well known for its ridesharing services, the company recently expanded into the world of bikeshare through its acquisition of Motivate, the firm behind NYC’s Citi Bike. Today, Enclave residents can take advantage of a multitude of transportation options via the community’s designated Lyft pick-up area and neighboring Citi Bike station, in addition to its complimentary shuttle service to-and-from the Hoboken PATH.

With over 50 stations throughout Jersey City, Citi Bike is a fast-growing transportation option for local residents to quickly and affordably get around town or to the PATH train.  An annual membership costs $169 per year for 365 days of unlimited, 45-minute rides throughout Jersey City and New York. Citi Bike is also now conveniently available within the Lyft app, where a single 30-minute trip can be purchased with a few taps for only $3 — no separate account required.

“Our partnerships with residential properties allow us to expand service and ensure people in the Jersey City community have access to our reliable, multimodal transportation options,” said Eric Plummer, Market Manager of Lyft New Jersey. “We’re excited to be able to offer a seamless experience for residents at The Enclave by providing access to both rideshare and Citi Bike within the Lyft app.”

Located at 675 Monmouth Street in one of Jersey City’s hottest new neighborhoods, The Enclave features 260 luxury apartments and more than 40,000 square feet of resort-style amenities.  An abundance of outdoor space is highlighted by an expansive rooftop terrace featuring a swimming pool, private BBQ areas, outdoor bar and a fire pit – all set against the dazzling Manhattan skyline backdrop.  The pet-friendly building also features a dog run and spa, multiple entertainment lounges, an arcade/game room, co-working spaces and conference room, children’s imagination room with connected outdoor play area, and a Zen garden.  Fitness enthusiasts will enjoy a state-of-the art fitness center with virtual fitness programs, spin room, indoor/outdoor yoga areas, private massage room and resident locker rooms.
