There are many blogs about New York City’s history, but very few about the past of its next-door neighbor New Jersey. I’m happy to see a new blog, Another Town on the Hudson, which concentrates on Jersey City’s cultural history. The author (full disclosure: someone close to me!) is posting weekly meditations on Chilltown’s past, illustrated with fascinating archival images. I look forward to following it, and I just wanted to share it with anyone who might be a fellow history-lover or Jersey native.
