Montgomery Gardens Housing Project To Be Imploded

A reminder to everyone that Jersey City will be imploding the Montgomery Gardens Housing project on Saturday, August 29th at 9:00 a.m.  Streets around Montgomery Gardens will be closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic from 6:00 am to noon.  The city recommends that everyone in a two block radius close their windows.  I would recommend that everyone in our district also close your windows.  We may be a bit further away but it will be a significant implosion and if we happen to be caught downwind some of the residue could spread.

If you want to view the implosion the city has set up a viewing section at Fremont and Bright Streets.  It is recommended that viewers arrive by 8:00 am.
