JCTC Play Reading: I Don’t Know How She Does It at Merseles Studios

49794519_10161573614740227_4692677900355239936_n

When: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at 8 PM

Where: Jersey City Theater Center – 339 Newark Ave, Jersey City, New Jersey 07302

How does one Puerto Rican woman rise from public housing to become a Pulitzer Prize winner, despite an apathetic Virgin Mary, tragic loss and an epic downpour of bird poop? This one-person show cycles through eight moments in one Boricua’s life to explore how imagination and humor help her survive and achieve despite struggles and haters—most especially herself. Each of the eight monologues suggests a different setting and stage in the speaker’s life. The show is loosely autobiographical, inspired by the playwright’s own journey to overcome “brown shame”, her lack of faith and the loss of her infant son.

Nancy Méndez-Booth is a writer and spoken word performer, and teaches writing and Latinx literature and culture at colleges and universities in New York and New Jersey. She grew up in NYC public housing, where shy brown girls were taught to be quiet and not to aspire to attend Amherst College nor complete two graduate degrees (both from Rutgers-Newark). Her writing has appeared in print and online, most recently in Kweli Journal, as well as Poets & Writers, Salon, OZY, VIDA: Women in Literary Arts, her blog (nancymendezbooth.com/blog), and is forthcoming in the Latina Outsiders: Remaking Latina Identity anthology, to be published in 2019. Nancy has performed at Northeast venues including The Moth, Cornelia Street Cafe and Midtown International Theatre Festival, and “Brown Privilege”, one of her most recent pieces, is available for viewing online.

Here’s Your Chance To Bike In Jersey City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

52901675_10156602224393591_5354931655188414464_n

When: Sunday March 10th at 11 AM – 2 PM

Where: Lincoln Park in Jersey City

Get outside and get some fresh Eire: Ride your bike with us in the Jersey City St. Patrick’s Day Parade! On Sunday, March 10, the Bike JC contingent will once again ride along with the floats and marching bands in this traditional and fun event, which also serves as our informal kickoff for the peak biking season.

Check-in for riders starts at 11:00 a.m. on JFK Boulevard between Belmont and Bentley Avenues at the east end of Lincoln Park. The parade steps off from there around noon and rolls north along JFK to the reviewing stand in Journal Square, with a party there afterward inside the grand and historic Loew’s Jersey Theater.
Riding in the parade is slow, informal, and not at all strenuous; mostly we ride leisurely patterns around the boulevard and other marchers, smile, wave to the crowds of spectators, and, of course, WEAR LOTS OF GREEN!

If you’d like to join, please email Ron at rapidron1@msn.com, and tell him how many other riders are coming with you. (However, if you just show up at noonish at the start, nobody’s going to mind.)

THE CLIFFS COLLECTION DEBUTS ON JERSEY CITY’S HOBOKEN BORDER WITH INDUSTRIAL-INSPIRED LOFT CONDOS AND WELLNESS AMENITIES

The Cliffs Interior Wide View.jpgDeveloper Manhattan Building Company Releases 60 Homes Within Six-Story Luxury Building at 100 Paterson Plank Road.

A unique offering of 60 luxury condominiums in a building expressly redesigned to combine industrial flair with an ultra-health and wellness lifestyle has been released for sale at The Cliffs Collection, a converted factory now featuring expansive loft-style residences set against the tranquil Basalt Cliffs lining Jersey City’s Hoboken border.

The sales launch follows the completion of a comprehensive modernization program at the five-story building which includes a new suite of amenities that incorporates elements of Blue Zone Living, a lifestyle concept emphasizing a balance of diet, good habits and social engagement to initiate healthier, happier and longer lives.  

The Cliffs BedroomAvailable for quick delivery, the newly-released studio-to-four-bedroom condominiums feature open floor plans ranging from 570 to 2,200 square-feet of soaring living space at introductory prices starting from the $500,000s.  Residences are fully customizable, allowing for buyers to work with in-house designers or on their own to tailor their new home with myriad of selections and options – while still enjoying near-immediate occupancy.

“There is simply nothing like The Cliffs Collection offered in Hudson County,” says Sanford Weiss, CEO of Manhattan Building Company, owner and developer of The Cliffs Collection.  “Of course, it starts with the homes themselves where no stone has been unturned. These condominiums defy market standards with unique and oversized living spaces outfitted with designer features and finishes that pay homage to the building’s industrial past.”

Located at 100 Paterson Plank Road in Jersey City, the pre-war building began life in the early 1900s as a boiler factory, and its classic exterior has been restored as part of its rebirth as a signature landmark residential building.  

A mix of old and new will be found throughout the new residences, including soaring 10-to-14-foot ceilings, oversized windows framing panoramas of Hoboken, the Manhattan skyline and the cliffs; exposed brick walls and spiral duct work, engineered wide plank oak flooring, custom built-in closets, kitchens with state-of-the art appliances and industrial-themed fixtures and lavish baths with Kohler fixtures and white glass wall tiles.

The Cliffs Living Kitchen“Buyers can also purchase a home ‘as is,’ allowing for them to privately complete renovations and improvements,” says Joshua Biegel, Project Director for The Cliffs Collection.  

A creative suite of recreational and social amenities at The Cliffs Collection include a fully-equipped fitness center with Himalayan salt sauna, residents-only lounge and library with fireplace, children’s playroom and an industrial-inspired lobby with concrete floors and adorned with historic photos of the building.

Outside, a private urban oasis awaits with an updated courtyard with roofdeck and lounge, beautifully landscaped Zen Garden and hammock area, and an outdoor kitchen with gas grills, fire pits and water features all uniquely set against the breathtaking geological cliffs that nearly touch the building’s western edge.  Residents will also enjoy 24-hour concierge service, bike storage and secured, covered on-site parking.  The pet-friendly building also provides a dog run.

To promote a healthier lifestyle, residents have access to the onsite Sancri Wellness Center, a holistic retreat that stimulates Blue Zone Living with body treatments, yoga room with yoga and meditation classes, as well as a complete wellness events calendar featuring nutritional speakers, health programs and more. Blue Zones are geographic regions worldwide where residents share common lifestyle traits and live exceptionally long lives. 

The Cliffs Fitness“Complementary shuttle service will be provided to the Hoboken PATH station from our front door, bringing the work centers and vibrant nightlife of Manhattan close to home,” Mr. Biegel points out.  “We’re also just blocks from all the entertainment, dining, shopping and more that line Hoboken’s lively Washington Street and Newark Avenue retail corridor.  The 2nd Street Light Rail Station is steps from The Cliffs Collection, providing convenient access to both downtown Jersey City and uptown Hoboken.”

An on-site sales center and fully-furnished model home are open and available to tour at The Cliffs Collection.  For additional information or to schedule a visit to tour the building, please visit www.thecliffscollection.com or call 201-222-0920.

Jersey City Ranked Most Diverse US City

A recent WalletHub study recently named Jersey City ‘the nation’s most ethnically diverse city,’ making this yet another proud Jersey City moment for the books.

In order to identify the most ethnically diverse places in America, WalletHub compared more than 500 of the largest U.S. cities across three key metrics: ethnoracial diversity, linguistic diversity and birthplace diversity. JC took the number one spot for the third year in a row. Pretty cool right?
