Hoboken Police Investigate Security Breach City Hall

The Hoboken Police Department is investigating an incident that occurred at the Mayor’s Office on Thursday night.

A male individual entered City Hall through the Newark Street entrance just before 8:00pm on Thursday, February 15th, 2018. The person went through metal detectors and told security officers that he was going to use the restroom.

At the time, the only person in the Mayor’s Office was Deputy Chief of Staff Jason Freeman. Mayor Bhalla was on his way to the office following a community meeting. From his office, Mr. Freeman observed that a bag with an object had been thrown in the direction of the administrative assistant’s desk and made eye contact with the individual. The individual then ran out of the Mayor’s Office. Mr. Freeman called the police, which are currently investigating the incident.

“This incident, along with death threats to me and my family, is an unfortunate reminder that we need to take security seriously,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “The Joint Terrorism Task Force has evaluated City Hall, and we have been working to implement their recommendations for physical and procedural changes to improve security for all employees in the building.”

“We take incidents like these incredibly seriously and will continue working to ensure the security of the mayor and everyone who visits City Hall,” said Hoboken Police Chief Kenneth Ferrante.

Hudson County Community College Continues NJPAC Partnership with Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company’s Lunar New Year Celebration Event

JERSEY CITY, N.J. / February 6, 2018 – Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Department of Cultural Affairs continues its year-long partnership with New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) with a very special event.

The College invites the entire community to experience Asian culture and celebrate the Lunar New Year with a talk and demonstration presented by artist Nai-Ni Chen, featuring colorful costumes, twirling ribbons, and dancing dragons in a dazzling explosion of energy and motion.

The event will take place on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Benjamin J. Dineen, III & Dennis C. Hull Gallery on the 6th Floor at 71 Sip Ave., Jersey City.

This, along with the programming of the HCCC-NJPAC partnership, is open to the entire Hudson County community with no charge for

admission.

An artist whose work defies categorization, Nai-Ni Chen is continually working on new ideas from worldwide influences.

The dances of Nai-Ni Chen fuse the dynamic freedom of American modern dance with the grace and splendor of Asian art. Her mesmerizing and dramatic contemporary choreography has gained recognition among domestic and international presenters and festivals.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company’s productions take the audience beyond cultural boundaries to where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline.

The Company has mounted twenty national tours and seven tours abroad, and was recently honored with a distinctive grant award from both the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities and the Department of State to represent the United States in a seven-city tour arranged by the Tamaulipas International Arts Festival in Mexico.

Nai-Ni Chen dance productions have been presented in prestigious concert halls, such as the Joyce Theater in New York, Ordway Center in Minnesota, and the Cerritos Center in California. Internationally, Ms. Chen’s work was featured at the Silesian International Contemporary Dance Festival and the Konfrontations International Dance Festival – both in Poland – and the Chang Mu International Arts Festival in Korea and China International Dance Festival.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company event on February 13th is part of HCCC Department of Cultural Affairs’ “Twilight Tuesday” series featuring artist receptions, demonstrations, faculty mixers, author readings, and workshops. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
