  • This is in middle of a busy town block. We could not find it easily. Somber and not so loud surroundings to be had to pay respect to the laying here.  more »
  • Very cool graveyard downtown NJ. This is the one they used for funerals in the episodes of the Sopranos. Worth a visit to learn more about the history of JC.  more »
  • I was grow up in downtown Jersey city for 53 years. My house Was located 208 GRAND ST. IT WAS TORN DOWN TO MAKE WAY FOR NEW buildings. WHAT GREAT MEMORIES I AM GLAD FOR THE Development Of Jersey city. Pastor Wilfredo Robles Vidal.
  • A beautiful piece of preservation pioneered by the residents of Jersey when abandoned by the city. Home to the famous JC goats, Ghost of Uncle Joes Halloween bash and many great community events.
