Bayonne Public Library Announces Mystery Book Club Title and Event for April

What’s it about? Six friends. One college reunion. One unsolved murder. Ten years after graduation, Jessica Miller has planned her triumphant return to her southern, elite Duquette University, down to the envious whispers that are sure to follow in her wake. Everyone is going to see the girl she wants them to see—confident, beautiful, indifferent. Not the girl she was when she left campus, back when Heather Shelby’s murder fractured everything, including the tight bond linking the six friends she’d been closest to since freshman year. But not everyone is ready to move on. Not everyone left Duquette ten years ago, and not everyone can let Heather’s murder go unsolved. Someone is determined to trap the real killer, to make the guilty pay. When the six friends are reunited, they will be forced to confront what happened that night—and the years’ worth of secrets each of them would do anything to keep hidden.

How do you participate? Borrow one of the library’s eBook or eAudiobook copies of In My Dreams I Hold a Knife between April 1st and April 30th on Axis 360 using your Bayonne Public Library card. Read the book. Then register and participate in a live virtual book club on Wednesday, April 27th at 7 pm featuring author Ashley Winstead!

Jersey City is still beaming with pride after the St. Peter’s Men’s basketball team made an incredible appearance during March Madness.

St. Peter’s gained national attention after knocking out the second-seeded Kentucky in their first game before moving on to defeat seventh-seeded Murray State, advancing to the third round of the tournament, which is known as the Sweet 16.

Saint Peter’s is only the third 15 seed in the men’s tournament history to advance to the Sweet Sixteen and the first to advance to the Elite Eight. They excited the world of sports with their win over Purdue University 67-64

However, Saint Peter’s University’s Cinderella story came to an end on Sunday with a 69-49 loss against the University of North Carolina.

Mayor Fulop noted in an email to his constituents “These young athletes showed the nation what Jersey City is all about and we could not be more proud of the team.
As a proper thank you, the City and community will host a parade Friday April 1st 2022 starting at 2 p.m. as we continue our celebrations. “

The parade will start from the Statue of Abraham Lincoln, proceed straight down JFK Boulevard, and end in front of St. Peter’s University.
If you would like to attend Friday, as we celebrate and show our continued support for Peacock Nation!

BAYONNE TO UNVEIL A SPECIAL 20th ANNIVERSARY SEPTEMBER 11 MEMORIAL IN FRONT OF CITY HALL APRIL 6, 2022

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will hold an unveiling ceremony for its 20th anniversary September 11th Memorial on Wednesday, April 6, at 11:00 a.m.  The ceremony will take place in front of Bayonne City Hall, which is located at 630 Avenue C, between 27th and 28th Streets.

Mayor Davis said, “Bayonne played an important role in providing emergency response on September 11, 2001 and in the days that followed the attack on the World Trade Center.” He continued, “It is most appropriate that the new memorial will include a piece of steel from the World Trade Center.”  

The public is invited to attend the unveiling ceremony. Mayor Davis concluded, “We look forward to welcoming everyone to the memorial event on Wednesday, April 6.”

BAYONNE’S SAINT JOSEPH BELLS ON ROAD TRIP

Bells on a road trip: The bells from the former St Joseph’s Catholic Church of Bayonne are shown on a truck that left the city recently to go to Cincinnati, Ohio.  That’s where the bells will be polished and prepared for their new home in the soon-to-be- constructed bell tower in Fitzpatrick Park.  That park is located on Avenue C between 26th and 27th Streets, across the street from City Hall.  The park is named after former Mayor Francis G. Fitzpatrick. Mayor Jimmy Davis’s Administration saved the bells, so that they would be preserved for future generations in their new home.  St. Joseph’s Church served Bayonne’s Slovak Catholic community.

HISTORICAL ARTS EXHIBIT AND POETRY READING AT BAYONNE LIBRARY ON THURSDAY APRIL 12

The Bayonne Public Library and the Bayonne Historical Society are co-sponsoring an exhibit called “Lost Landmarks of Bayonne” in the O’Connor Gallery of the Bayonne Public Library.  The public is invited to attend an opening ceremony, which will be held on Tuesday evening, April 12, at 7:00 p.m., in the gallery on the second floor of the library.

The exhibit will consist of approximately forty paintings by Bayonne artist Andrew A. Walsh (1873-1940) and ten poems by his late sister Mary A. Walsh.  Bayonne shop owner Kathleen Hurley, another member of the same family, has kindly consented to perform the poems at the opening.

Members of the Bayonne Historical Society will act as tour guides, virtually taking people on a tour of 19th Century landmarks of the little villages that combined to form Bayonne: Bergen Point, Constable Hook, Centerville, and Salterville or Pamrapo. 

The landmark paintings and the poems were donated to the Bayonne Public Library by Mary Walsh in 1949.  The art includes pen-and-ink, charcoals, water colors, gouache, and oil paintings.  Due to the number of pieces, the paintings have seldom been exhibited all together, so this is a rare occasion to view and compare all of them.

The family of the late Marge Wilk, a Historical Society officer and community activist, will also attend the program to make an art donation to the library in honor of their matriarch.

The Landmarks exhibit will be available through the end of April to allow the scheduling of daytime group visits for anyone from school children to senior citizens.  Please contact Lee at 201-436-5978 for the dates and hours when the free guided tours will be available for the public after the opening ceremony.

The library is located at 31st Street and Avenue C.

Outdoor Dining Permits Available in Bayonne

          In order to support the local economy, Mayor Jimmy Davis and the Bayonne City Council have announced that, beginning April 1, 2022, local food and/or beverage establishments may be able to establish temporary outdoor seating with the issuance of a temporary use permit. These permits may allow food and/or beverage establishments to expand the areas available for seating on a case-by-case basis.  These temporary use permits were approved for most establishments for the past two years through an active mercantile license from the City of Bayonne.  If a food and/or beverage establishment received approval in 2020 or 2021 for temporary outdoor dining, a new application is not required if the proposed use remains the same.  However, proof of 2022 insurance must be provided. If the business proposal has changed, a new application will be required.

Resilient Northeastern New Jersey will host community meeting to gather feedback on flood-risk reduction actions in Bayonne

BAYONNE, N.J., Mar. 25, 2022– Many residents in Bayonne reported experiencing flooding several times last year due to heavy rainstorms that inundated homes, streets, and businesses. As last year exhibited, the problem will only be compounded as climate change leads to more intense rainfall and rising sea levels. The City of Bayonne is beginning to address flooding with projects like the Fitzpatrick Park renovations to include stormwater management, and it has joined the Resilient Northeastern NJ partnership to promote collaboration on resilience at the regional level. A strategic, coordinated approach that includes capital projects, policy changes, and new services and programs at local, regional, and state scales will be needed to address current issues and prepare for these changing conditions. 

As part of its development of a regional resilience action plan, Resilient Northeastern NJ is hosting a community meeting on April 5th to work with Bayonne community members on specific possible solutions for reducing flood risk. The project team will share key considerations for a range of options developed so far and show how they could shape neighborhoods while addressing flooding and other climate hazards. Feedback will be integrated into the draft action plan that will be released in the Spring.

When: Tuesday, April 5th, 4 – 5:30 PM or 6:30 – 8 PM

Where: RSVP and access the virtual Zoom meeting at https://tinyurl.com/nenj-bay-mtg.Community members can also watch on Facebook live:https://www.facebook.com/ResilientNENJ.

Who: Those who live, work, or play in Bayonne are encouraged to attend and provide input on the resilience action plan. The meeting will be available in English and Spanish, with American Sign Language interpretation. Please email ResilientNENJ@dep.nj.gov or call 201-398-4333 with additional language, accessibility, or support needs.

Contact: Share questions or comments by email to ResilientNENJ@dep.nj.gov or by phone to 201-398-4333.
