JERSEY CITY, NJ- The Jersey City Municipal Council is moving to make traffic and parking changes in areas near Journal Square and Lincoln Park.
The Jersey City Council introduced an ordinance at its September 8 that would prohibit right turns on red signals at the intersection of Duncan Avenue, Mallory Avenue, and Lakeview drive at the Northeast corner of Lincoln Park.
The purpose of this ordinance, advocates for it said, is to update traffic and parking regulations as part of the Duncan Avenue bike lane project, which will convert the existing conventional striped bike lanes into a protected two-way cycle-track on the Southern side of the street.

The ordinance would also prohibit parking at all times on Duncan Avenue from Route 1 & 9 to Lookout Drive.
Additionally, the City Council has also introduced an ordinance that would permit on-street parking on the West side of Baldwin Avenue between Washburn Street and Route 139.
Currently, on-street parking is prohibited on Baldwin starting at Prospect Street and continuing until Route 139. The proposal would end that ban at Washburn Street, allowing on-street parking on the West side of the street until Baldwin Avenue reaches Route 139.
At the Caucus Meeting on September 5, Ward C Councilman Richard Boggiano asked Director of Traffic Engineering Jennifer Wong if residents at recent community meeting earlier in the day were on board with the changes being made. Wong confirmed they were okay with them.
The ordinances will likely be up for a public hearing and final vote at the next meeting of the City Council. That will be on September 20 at 7 p.m. at City Hall at 280 Grove Street, with more information at jerseycitynj.gov.

NEWARK, NJ — The following news release comes courtesy of the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District. Find out how to post announcements or events to your local Patch site.
The Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) announces the 18th consecutive Lincoln Park Music Festival Season (including two hybrid “Covid” seasons 14.1 and 14.2). Headlining the legendary House Music Day is none other than dance music and Disco pioneer – Nicky Siano! Nicky Siano is one of the only surviving DJs who actually started the dance music scene in New York City and he’s coming to Newark’s #1 House Music Day for the first-time ever!
Nicky Siano is one of the last true pioneers of the inception of New York's dance music scene, a music genre that later became DISCO. His first job playing records at New York’s famed club THE ROUND TABLE, was in 1971. In 1972, at the age of 17, he co-owned, designed and was the DJ at THE GALLERY nightclub, called “the first disco” in books such as Love Saves the Day and Love Goes to Buildings on Fire. Both books and documentaries such as MAESTRO chronicle how Nicky started many DJ techniques like beat matching records, designing the first crossover and building the first club bass horns. He inspired owners to build such clubs as The Paradise Garage and Studio 54. He launched the careers of Grace Jones, D.C. La Rue, Loleatta Holloway, Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, to name a few. His party at hot spot Twelve West (1999-2002) was heralded by New York Magazine, The Village Voice, Time Out, Hx, Next, Flyer, DJ Times and Paper Magazine as the party of the year. Nicky's live theatrical experience HALLELUJAH DISCO: Stonewall to Studio 54 is a compelling immersive experience where the story, beginning at the STONEWALL RIOTS in New York City and the first PRIDE celebration, comes to life!
This year, Lincoln Park Music Festival spotlights the global 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop in addition to House. Music, Gospel, Jazz, and R&B/Soul. Lincoln Park Music Festival’s second week officially launches in partnership with EQUAL SPACE as they present “Newark Tech Week Summer Sessions: Rap Battles and AI: Voice Ownership in the Digital Age”, a panel discussion and mixer that kicks off their annual Newark Tech Week summit this October. The week continues with 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop free outdoor movie night; Lincoln Park Music Festival’s Youth Day Fest; The Soul of Lincoln Park; and a Caribbean infused Lincoln Park Caribana experience.
“In our twentieth year as a non-profit, and upon the precipice of implementing the federally earmarked $3.5 million for green space revitalization secured by U.S. Senator Menendez and U.S. Senator Booker, our signature arts and culture program – the Lincoln Park Music Festival – is the best example of future use. We are outdoor programmers and Lincoln Park is our world class venue”, states LPCCD Executive Director Anthony Smith. “Lincoln Park Music Festival is where legends, icons, pioneers come to play for “the people” of Newark. Our annual House Music Day’s lineage descends directly from the dance clubs such as Le Joc's, Shanique’s, Paradisio, Club Dock’s and of course Zanzibar. It’s a reunion of the House Music community. Nicky Siano is next in a long line of legends that have come to play.”
Over the past 18 consecutive seasons, the festival has evolved to a full umbrella season of music, arts, culture and wellness from April to October annually. Check out the schedule below!
Here's a list of festival season activities that should be on every summer calendar!

NEWARK, NJ — The Lincoln Park restoration project is receiving an infusion of $3.55 million in funding from the $1.7 trillion federal spending bill approved last year.
“I am personally grateful for Senators (Cory) Booker and (Bob) Menendez’s commitment to Newark’s ongoing revitalization and redevelopment, and to our shared vision of ensuring that the City’s long-time population will still have a place as change occurs,” said Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka.
Booker and Menendez secured the funding for the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District, which is overseeing the much-needed facelift to Lincoln Park, a National Historic Register landmark that has served a wide array of the city’s residents for more than 300 years as one of Newark’s original colonial-era ‘Commons’ public gathering places – the South Commons – renamed as Lincoln Park to commemorate President Lincoln’s visit to the area in 1861.

The Lincoln Park Restoration Project is the transformational centerpiece of a five-year planned reemergence of the Lincoln Park Neighborhood as an artistic, energetic, healthy and empowered community.
“The park improvements will include infrastructure for arts, music and cultural programming and festivals; respite and seating areas; park restrooms and upkeep of green spaces for youth and families to play. The upgrades of Lincoln Park will also enable more diverse programming for the park which will enhance vending and other economic opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses," Anthony Smith, executive director of Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District.
“Thanks to their advocacy and support, the redevelopment of Lincoln Park will not only enhance the economic vitality of the city, but will also provide affordable housing, additional employment opportunities, and enhanced access to the arts for our residents," Baraka said.
Hundreds of community projects across New Jersey are being funded by this federal bill. "These vital projects will create jobs, stimulate economic activity, and keep New Jersey families healthy and safe," said Booker, who served as the 38th mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013. "I am proud to have fought to ensure this funding was included and am grateful for the organizations, community leaders, and elected officials who are working tirelessly to advance these critical initiatives."

NEWARK, NJ, December 02, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) announces the official 20th Anniversary of the non-profit organization marking two decades of arts, culture, and community development. Upon the occasion of its platinum anniversary milestone, Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District will host its first-ever full in-person fundraising benefit awards dinner entitled The Lagniappe Experience: Dîner en Noir et Blanc (in Black & White) powered by Prudential Financial, a legacy anchor who has supported LPCCD since its inception.
"The contributions of The Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District are essential to Newark Community," said Nicole Butler, Vice President, Community Affairs & Partnerships at Prudential Financial. "We are proud to support programs that elevate the arts and strengthen inclusive economic development."
A snapshot of Prudential Financial's history with LPCCD and Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District's accomplishments and future goals were recently touted in The Positive Community magazine's annual Newark Issue where the organization received its first cover story by lauded reporter Barry Carter. At twenty years, LPCCD acknowledges its humble beginnings and Newark's past, but also its future crown jewel, the development of the historic South Park Calvary United Presbyterian Church into the "Lincoln Park Façade" project. The most recent architectural rendering was disclosed in The Positive Community magazine's annual Newark Issue and can be found here on page 56 https://thepositivecommunity.com/2022/10/25/october-nj-issue/.
The Lincoln Park Façade project is slated to yield a 60-unit residential live/work/play space for creatives and commercial space for the local community to enjoy, earn income and hire local. The Lincoln Park Façade project sits along downtown Newark's main artery Broad Street (Mayor Ken A. Gibson Blvd) and will be the beacon in our envisioned "music village community".
"It's been an honor and pleasure to have Prudential Financial as an anchor funder and partner over two decades" states Anthony Smith, executive director of Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District. "They've weathered many challenges with us from the ripple effect of 9/11 to the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2010 and more recently the global COVID-19 pandemic". Smith continues "Not just financially, but as a true partner, they've provided capacity building resources, professional development and currently hold a seat on our board. We're the little engine that can because of partners like Prudential Financial and are looking forward to the next twenty."
The Lagniappe Experience, which translates to "a little something special", is a fundraising event that will benefit the non-profit's capacity and work in Arts & Culture, Green Jobs Training, Community Engagement and serve to seed the 2023 Capital Campaign and help operationalize the Lincoln Park Façade facility once completed.
The event will take place at Newark Symphony Hall in Lincoln Park on Thursday, December 8th, 2022 at 5:30pm-10pm. The Lagniappe Experience: Dîner en Noir et Blanc (in Black & White) theme is inspired by the legendary Black & White Ball of 1966 dubbed "The Party of The Century" meets Black creole culture of New Orleans with a little "Brick City" edge. Guests are requested to wear combinations of Black and White with pops of The Lagniappe Experience's signature purple.

For more than a decade, the owners of Gemini have lovingly admired the Irish tavern across the street.
Four Farthings Tavern & Grill, which opened in 1963, took its name from Lord of the Rings and represented a particular type of Chicago bar, one with odes to Ireland, a full menu of ribs and chops, and a private room for parties. The last few years have seen the bars around Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park turn over. Gamekeepers, Stanley’s Tap, and Sedgwick’s have long departed.
During the pandemic, Four Farthings, which had passed hands a few times over the years, also called it quits. That provided the owners of Gemini, Ballyhoo Hospitality, an opportunity. Founder Ryan O’Donnell and company have been running Gemini for 13 years, and in 2017 they renovated, showing the Lincoln Park community they wanted to stay even as other businesses turned over.
“When are you taking it over?” O’Donnell recalls customers asking him. “Why can’t you do something there?
“Trust me I want to, and hopefully I will someday.”
Ballyhoo had to wait a dozen years, but finally struck an agreement to lease the creaky space on the corner of Lincoln, Cleveland, and Dickens. Ballyhoo plans on opening DeNuccis in late spring or early summer at 503 W. Dickens Avenue (crews moved the entrance from Cleveland, hence the new address). O’Donnell describes the new venture as an “Italian Gemini.” He sees an absence of red sauce Italian restaurants in the neighborhood and wants to bring New Jersey and New York vibes to the menu, as opposed to the European focus at Ballyhoo’s Lakeview restaurant, Coda di Volpe.
In January, Ballyhoo opened Pizza by Sal in suburban Wilmette, a pizzeria with two main pies. The main style is a 16-inch pie is a bit reminiscent of big and floppy New York-style pizzas with a modern edge. They’re bringing the same pizza to Lincoln Park. There’s also a Sicilian gluten-free pie that pizzaiolo Salvadore “Sal” Lo Cascio is quite proud of creating. Lo Cascio, who worked at Forno Rosso — one of the city’s premier Neopolitan pizza makers — also created the pies for Coda di Volpe.
But while DeNuccis is near Lincoln Park High School this isn’t a student’s after-school hangout. Like Gemini, the new restaurant will be family-friendly, but there’s a bar and elements aimed at a more adult crowd with chicken and veal in either Piccata. Marsala, or parmigiano. While pasta won’t be made on premises, O’Donnell says they’ll find the best dried pasta available for an impressive variety of family-style offerings. O’Donnell is excited about the Sunday gravy with meatballs.
They plan on serving dinner seven days a week and weekend lunch: “We’ll let Gemini deal with the brunch crowd,” O’Donnell says.
Gemini opened in 2009 and has developed into a prototype Chicago neighborhood restaurant with a core group of loyal customers. While O’Donnell won’t share how much they invested into the remodel, he says crews gutted the space. Besides the new entrance, they added a takeout window — but they still saved the bar’s old millwork. The bar top’s made of stone quartz. A 96-seat patio will also debut along Cleveland and Dickens: “We definitely improved the owner’s building and added a lot of value in what we did,” O’Donnell says.
Ballyhoo has focused on the suburbs (Sophia Steak, Pomeroy, Buck Russell’s) since the pandemic but has collaborated on one of the city’s biggest openings, Andros Taverna in Logan Square. O’Donnell admits that he’d “be lying if I said I wasn’t scared or anxious about it.”
He says the pandemic conditions forced Ballyhoo to work smarter and rethink how it operate. DeNuccis represents a step forward, and he’s hopeful Lincoln Park appreciates their investment.
DeNuccis, 503 W. Dickens Avenue, scheduled for a late spring or summer opening.
