Some Grove Pointe residents have lodged complaints with the City to eliminate community events such as Groove on Grove, Creative Grove, and the Farmer’s Market from assembling at Grove Pointe, the common area in front of the Grove Street PATH on the corner of Grove Street and Newark Avenue. You can read more about this debate here.
Ongoing community events such as the Groove on Grove music series, weekly Farmer’s Market, and Creative Grove are staples within the vibrant Downtown Jersey City culture and provide our neighbors with venues to buy and sell their wares and support the local music scene. Organizers of these events have taken measures to compromise on noise levels and are working with the property management of Grove Pointe Condominiums to ensure residents are comfortable.
The Historic Downtown Special Improvement District and Arts In Action, Inc. have been working to revitalize the downtown corridor as a shopping and entertainment hub and eliminating these valuable community events from Downtown Jersey City will only serve to reduce creative opportunities for our citizens.
