9 Bar Cafe’ on Erie Street in Jersey City
Those who drip, press or perk coffee they purchase in a plastic container or who grab a cup from the corner take-out may want to wake up and smell the java at 9 Bar Café on Erie Street in Jersey City. That’s where owner Stefania Cocozza brews coffee like a scientist and the results are one fine cup of elixir from the Gods.
Stefania Cocozza, owner, 9 Bar Cafe’ only serves coffees and espresso in porcelain cups to enhance the flavor

NJCU Professor Pens Book on Broadway’s Unsung Artisans
By Sally Deering
When some folks see Broadway’s Theater District for the first time they ooh, ah and buy tickets to the show they’re dying to see. When Timothy White, Ph.D., an assistant professor of history at New Jersey City University first saw Broadway, he not only bought tickets, he began researching its glorious history.
Dr. Timothy R. White Author
Dr. White’s curiosity centered on the artists behind the scenes, the nameless crafts men-and-women who sewed the costumes, built the scenery and provided the lights needed to spotlight all those chorus girls in musical showstoppers. White’s curiosity led him to the Library of Performing Arts to write his dissertation for his Columbia University Ph.D. and the result is his first published book BLUE COLLAR BROADWAY: The Craft and Industry of American Theater (pub: University of Pennsylvania Press) now on the shelves of Barnes & Noble and online at Amazon.com.
