Here is an illustrated view of Jersey City, New Jersey, presented with the view that history is not some group of facts hidden in dusty tomes, but is happening all the time around us. The history and development of eight distinct sections are described: the waterfronts (North and Central), Downtown, Communipaw-Lafayette, Bergen, Journal Square, The Heights, and Greenville, from the 1600s to the present. With the help of more than 340 color and black and white photographs and other media, a fascinating vision of people, places, and change is presented; a vision that looks forward as well as back. A well-researched volume that will pique an interest in this "Monumental" city.
Randall Gabrielan is the executive director of the Monmouth County Historical Commission and the County's appointed historian. This is his sixth book with Schiffer Publishing.
