Saturday, July 21st at 16th Street Park
Join us for the 3rd Annual Bayonne Renaissance Festival.
This event is hosted by The Bayonne Theater Company.
Vendor & Entertainment information coming soon.
Do you remember the potluck dinner parties our parents’ and grandparents’ used to throw? Mom or Grandma would get a bundle of grocery store flowers (mums or carnations, anyone?!?) and plop them in a big pitcher or some random family heirloom vase. A giant stack of plates would get posted on the end of the banquet and that was that.
Well, we thought it’d be fun to take a little inspiration from classic Dutch paintings and make a non-traditional, traditional floral arrangement to go with our modern take on the family buffet. Everything old is new!

STYLING TIP # 1: ADD YOUR FAVORITE COLOR
You may or may not know I am a die-hard fan of classic blue and white. I’ve grown my collection over the years from a few pieces sprinkled around here and there, to large groupings on counters, shelves, tables, you name it. You’ll find it incorporated everywhere throughout our home, from season to season. So naturally, color is a big one for me. Even though I’ve been using this as my main color for quite a while now, it plays a major role each season – especially how I’ll play other colors off it.
STYLING TIP # 2: BRING IN FRESH AND FAUX FLOWERS
Many of you know I love faux flowers and use them all the time. I’m not always able to find affordable fresh blooms where I live, so I have built up quite the collection of gorgeous faux stems for my regular rotation. When I am able to find beautiful fresh blooms locally, or cut them from the garden, you can bet I have them. Nothing brings in the beauty of the warmer months like gorgeous fresh flowers!
via JerseyDigs.com – A significant step forward was announced yesterday for the redevelopment of Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne. Development partners RD Management LLC and JMF Properties officially broke ground on Harbor Pointe Marketplace and announced a lease deal with Costco Wholesale to anchor the new retail center.
Located along State Route 440 and directly across from the 34th Street Light Rail Station, the site has long been ripe for development. But after years of false starts, its next chapter is finally being written. Harbor Pointe Marketplace is the first part of what will eventually become a lively residential and commercial center with plans for 651 multifamily residential units, walking paths, and 92,000 square feet of additional retail space.
In this first phase, RD Management LLC and JMF Properties are constructing a 240,000-square-foot retail center. Costco is slated to take 150,000 square feet of the new building along with an 18-pump Costco Gasoline gas station. Shoppers will also benefit from a reduced sales tax rate as it’s located in an Urban Enterprise Zone. The companies are targeting a fall 2018 opening. FULL STORY
The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is providing yet another easy way to Think Pink this Mother’s Day with the launch of a text-to-donate campaign that will raise important funds and advance innovative research that could dramatically change the treatment for breast cancer in the years to come.
Starting on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018, CBCF will accept mobile donations in a “Text for a Cure” initiative throughout Mother’s Day weekend. To participate in the campaign and donate via phone, simply text the code: DONATE to (973) 828-0883 and follow the link to indicate the amount you’d like to contribute to the Clifton, N.J.-based not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity.
All monies raised during the weekend will support trailblazing breast cancer research being conducted under the direction of noted oncologist, Dr. Larry Norton, at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research facilities. Since its inception in December 2007, CBCF has raised over $7 million for breast cancer research, which has been devoted entirely to Dr. Larry Norton’s and his colleagues’ research on the growth and spreading of breast cancer cells known as the Self-Seeding Theory. This research focuses on improving the understanding of not only breast cancer, but also other cancers.
Donors can also visit www.501auctions.com/cbcf to dedicate fund to support CBCF efforts.

via Jared Kofsky at JerseyDigs.com – New information and renderings have been revealed for a massive new mixed-use development near the 8th Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station that will be the largest and tallest of its kind in Bayonne.
The upcoming project at 26 North Street, between Avenue C and Kennedy Boulevard, is now slated to consist of two high-rise towers, each of which will be 22 stories tall. In an interview with Jersey Digs, David Greenman from Silbert Realty & Management stated that construction on this new development is expected to begin in the next 90 to 120 days.
The current plans call for each building to include 170 residential rental units, for a total of 340. The apartments are expected to mostly consist of one bedroom or two bedrooms, but some studios are possible. The ground floor will include 25,020 square feet of commercial space, which will likely be occupied in part with what Greenman describes as a regional “small footprint gourmet high-end grocery retailer.” In addition, another business such as a daycare center or a restaurant is expected to occupy 4,200 square feet. Four underground floors of parking with 725 spaces for shoppers and residents are also planned.
