Night Out

20293168_10212642218601628_415122913543958942_nJersey City’s National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

You are invited to join your neighbors from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the following locations:

Pershing Field – 201 Central Avenue
Arlington Park – Grand Street and Bramhall
Audubon Park – 12 Audubon Avenue
Hamilton Park – 25 W Hamilton Place

National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

At 9 p.m., Jersey City residents are encouraged to participate in National Night Out by turning on their home or porch lights. Churches are asked to ring their bells as a gesture of unity to support and promote safety in their neighborhoods.

July Film and TV Professionals Meetup



Come out to network with Jersey City’s film and TV community!

This month, we’ll also screen several short films made in JC, or by JC residents. Since it’s summertime, the theme is “nature,” and the screening culminates with a mind-blowing wildlife short from JC’s John Dunstan! You’ll also get a sneak peek at a scene from the sci-fi comedy feature “Snatchers,” written by meetup co-founder Guy Patton!

The meetup and the screening is totally free.

What better place to go au naturel then the lawn at Pacific Flea? We’ll be screening outside on Stu’s HUGE inflatable screen. Some seating available, but bring some folding chairs to ensure a seat!
