Summer is here and so is the opening of one of Hudson County’s newest event venues. The View at Lincoln Park, located at 201 Lincoln Park Drive, is part of a long tradition of entertainment spaces in one of Jersey City’s largest Parks. The View opened in Spring 2023, marking the newest chapter in this unique location’s history. The Hoboken Girl spoke with Jeanne Cretella, President of Landmark Hospitality, the company that owns and operates The View to learn more about what to expect.
In February 2021, Jersey City Planning Board approved the design of The View, located at 201 Lincoln Park Drive, near the Communipaw Avenue entrance to the park. The official groundbreaking ceremony was held in May 2021 and work has been underway since. The opening of The View is just around the corner, according to Jeanne Cretella.

Jeanne Cretella is President of Landmark Hospitality, the company that operates The View at Lincoln Park in partnership with Hudson County. Landmark Hospitality also operates several other restaurants, bars, hotels, and properties, including the Liberty House, Hudson House, and Felina Steak restaurant in Hudson County.
While the venue itself is something special, Jeanne says that the location on its own is an attraction. “The spot was always a monumental event space in Hudson County,” Jeanne said. “As the former location of Casino in the Park, it has a tremendous history in Hudson County. Anyone who has lived in Hudson County over a certain amount of years remembers celebrating something there. Either their own celebration or someone else’s.”
According to Jeanne, “In recent years, the building deteriorated and it really needed to be refurbished. The county is totally committed to the community of Lincoln Park. There is a phenomenal golf course in the park, and the monumental fountain is really reminiscent of something you’d find in Europe. It feels like you’re not in the US.”
Jeanne continued, “When [the county] decided to invest in what had been Casino in the Park, they agreed that it would be best to take it down and start over. We’re thrilled to have partnered with the county. It’s unlike anything that is in the county and we feel really strongly that it will be the most phenomenal space that any county in the state.”
Jeanne said, “It’s super special in its design, we purposefully dedicated to name it The View. Both Liberty House and Hudson House are known for their views. The view in Lincoln Park may not be of the skyline but the view is magical. We really feel confident about that name. That it was the right name. A lot of people thought that we’d keep the previous name, but we wanted the new space to have its own identity.”
The View will be 20,000 square feet when it is completed. The space can fit over 300 people, and has the capacity to host two events simultaneously. The architectural centerpiece of the property is a rooftop deck with a bar on the top floor, and another deck on the second floor, offering incredible views of the park.
Events Director Vivian Bifulco has been with Landmark Hospitality for 13 years and is coming to The View from Liberty House. She said that the third-floor roof deck will have a bar, in addition to the event spaces. “It’s really going to be something,” she said. “Especially once the weather gets better, it will be incredible.”
Lincoln Park was founded in 1905 and is 273 acres in size. The western border of the park is the Hackensack River, and the park is criss-crossed with walking trails, dotted with tennis courts and basketball courts, and has two soccer fields among other recreation amenities. The park is in the center of a residential neighborhood. Jeanne said that in designing the venue, the team thought carefully about how to minimize disruption in the neighborhood.
“Within the park there are several parking lots, and we have a shuttle service between the venue and those lots,” Jeanne said. “But we’re finding that less and less people are driving to events. Many people use car sharing. People are very conscious about drinking and driving.”
Between the use of car-sharing services and the popularity of hotel shuttles, things have really changed. “The amount of traffic generated by a wedding is substantially less than it was ten years ago,” Jeanne said. “We have a dedicated space for cars to queue up for pickups and dropoffs.” Further, working with event hosts will help to mitigate the congestion that could happen with a lot of cars. “With planning ahead, we generally know how many cars will be parking, how many ride-shares will be used, etc,” Jeanne said.

Jeanne also said that The View will be a job creator for the community, “With any kind of hospitality event, a lot of hands are needed to execute events,” she said. “And as a local hospitality business, we like to hire from the community,” Jeanne said that over 100 jobs will be created, and they look forward to hiring from Jersey City and Hudson County as a whole.
“Our culinary team is totally committed to working with the Hudson County Community College,” she said. “We have a great relationship with the school and really believe in giving opportunities to people who are passionate about the industry.” Jeanne is the Vice Chair of the Hudson County Community College Foundation, which promotes the college and its students as well as developing financial resources. “I feel strongly that hospitality as an industry provides jobs for people who live in the communities in which venues are located,” she said.

LINCOLN PARK, N.J. -- After the warmest January on record and another round of record-tying temperatures Friday, some people in the Tri-State Area traded in their snow shovels for 7 irons.
CBS2's John Elliott hit the links to check out some warm weather winners and losers.
"You really can't beat this. I think it's spring already," Samantha Schmaling said.
"Love playing in February," Doug Fornelius said.
"It was great. February 10th, playing golf. Never did that before," one woman said.
"We had no idea this was going to happen. It was a big surprise. We're really happy," one child said. "I got my first birdie on the second hole ... This is definitely one of my best games I've ever played."
"This is absolutely the earliest we've ever been able to open," Twin Willows golf owner Jeff Ward said.
The early opening was so impromptu, Ward didn't even have time to stack the shelves in the clubhouse with inventory.
"It's been so mild that we're actually starting to see grass growing," he said.
For Ward, there's really no downside for no snow; it's all about liquid equivalencies. In fact, all the heavy rain events we've seen this winter have helped him recover from last summer's drought, and it's helped fill up the water hazards, too.
Ward says they're planning on staying open as long as the weather cooperates.
No-to-low snow has also been good for the bottom line of the borough of Lincoln Park, which has 11,000 residents and 36 miles of roadway to keep clear. In a typical winter, they would fill the salt shed four times. This year, they've filled it once, and they've barely touched it.
"Last year, we spent about $54,000 on salt. So far this year, we've spent about $4,000," Lincoln Park Borough Administrator Perry Mayers said.
Not everybody is thrilled about our spring preview weather, however.
"If you're in the snow plowing business, this winter has been devastating for snow plowing guys," said Joe Fede, with Fede Construction.
"You've made no money?" Elliott asked.
"Zero," Fede said.
Like it or not, above normal temperatures are expected to continue.
John Elliott joined CBS2 in January 2007 as a meteorologist on "CBS2 News This Morning" and "CBS2 News At Noon."

NEWARK, NJ — A big wave of federal funding is coming to help restore Lincoln Park in Newark.
Last week, the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) announced that $3,550,000 in federal funding will be made available to Newark for the “Lincoln Park Restoration Project,” which will provide a much-needed facelift to the namesake community’s green space.
U.S. senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker – a Newark resident – helped secure the funding as part of the federal government’s Fiscal Year 2023 omnibus funding bill.
Booker said the funding for Lincoln Park and other projects in New Jersey will “provide major benefits” to communities across the state.
“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,” Booker said.
When the Senate passed the funding bill in December, Menendez said that more than $181 million is coming New Jersey’s way to be spent on community projects such as the Lincoln Park restoration plan.
“This is a major investment in communities across New Jersey,” Menendez said.
Newark Mayor Ras Baraka thanked the senators for their support in funneling federal funding to Lincoln Park.
“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.
“Ultimately, this project will renovate and upgrade the historic Lincoln Park to accelerate reemergence of this historic neighborhood as an energetic, healthy and empowered arts and culture-centered community,” the mayor added.
According to the LPCCD, Lincoln Park, a National Historic Register landmark, 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 – was renamed as Lincoln Park to commemorate Abraham Lincoln’s visit to the area in 1861.

NEWARK, NJ — A Newark nonprofit recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with “a little something special” at Newark Symphony Hall.
The Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) – which empowers “visionaries and community activists” to maintain the vibrancy of the Lincoln Park neighborhood – marked its second decade in the city by hosting a gala event at New Jersey’s largest and oldest Black-led arts and entertainment venue.
The event – dubbed “the Lagniappe Experience,” or “a little something special” – marked the kickoff of an 18-month fundraising campaign that will benefit the nonprofit’s capacity and work in arts and culture, green jobs training and community engagement. It will also support the nonprofit’s 2023-2024 capital campaign and help “operationalize” the Lincoln Park Façade facility once completed.
Honorees at the gala included:
According to the LPCCD, the event was inspired by the Black & White Ball of 1966 dubbed “the Party of The Century,” and was “sprinkled with Black creole culture of New Orleans and a little Brick City edge.”
To bid in an ongoing virtual art auction or make donations of any amount to the campaign, go to The Lagniappe Experience donation site here through Jan. 30. For more information about the LPCCD, check them out on Facebook or visit the nonprofit’s website, which will relaunch in early 2023 to coincide with the 18-month campaign.
