Mayor Fulop Takes Action on Coronavirus

He urged those who think they may have been exposed to use the city’s dial in number to get information so as not to  “overwhelm our medical facilities and make sure that people who are concerned don’t use public transportation to our medical facilities. We will direct you on where to go and our dispatchers will take the information as appropriate.”  The number to call is 201 547-5208.   In addition, anyone with questions about the novel coronavirus, symptoms, or their risk of exposure, can call the free, New Jersey 24-hour public hotline at 1-800-222-1222.

We Must Save Caven Point

Caven Point is a small, ecologically sensitive twenty one-acre piece of land.  It is unique, precious and fragile.  There isn’t room on it for herons, falcons, seals and golfers.

Publisher’s Letter

This first “issue” dated October 15, 2019, is just a beginning, a seed that will hopefully grow into something larger and better. We hope to regularly update the site with new content. Most important, we hope that Jersey City Times will in some small way help to better educate everyone about what makes Jersey City a great place to live and how we can make it even better.
