Petition has been started, not sure who, but if you live in the area and have watched Jersey Shore, then you're probably concerned.

Here is the petition:

Snooki and JWoww spinoff lands in Hudson County. Find out where...

February 09, 2012, 2:59 PM
By Anthony Venutolo/The Star-Ledger

The search is over.

Fox 5 (WNYW) reports that the long-awaited "Jersey Shore" spinoff series set to feature castmates Jennifer "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi will shoot in...

... Jersey City.

Mayor Jerramiah Healy is reportedly looking forward to the production, which is set to start shooting Feb. 17 in a two-story firehouse near the intersection of Grove and Mercer Streets. "The more people that see anything about Jersey City and see what we have in Jersey, the better it is for Jersey City," he told reporter John Huddy.

The show had been scouting locations ever since Hoboken denied 495 Productions shooting permits, nixing any possibility of shooting in the city known for its plethora of nightlife and eateries.

Huddy reports that the show will focus on the two gals who are "looking for love and trying to make it in the world..." Hmmmm, won't Roger and Jionni be angry at that notion?

It's been a busy week for "Jersey Shore" news. On Wednesday, MTV announced that Pauly "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio's spinoff will start airing in March 29 at 10:30 p.m.

Snooki and JWoww also made headlines when the former admitted she is bisexual in an interview with the Huffington Post. They also speculated that castmate Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino may be gay.

Food for thought:

Just did a search for Snooki and Jersey City and over 350 articles come up from every major news organization.

When were so many people talking about JC?

I was hoping that we could keep it that way. JC was a lot better when nobody thought it was cool to live here.

Those two dimwits are such a bad match for downtown JC. Very few bars that fit their NJ cheesy demographic. It's not a late night drunk/club area at all.

I wonder if they'll ever ride the PATH, that would make for amusing reality TV. Who has a better chance of getting a seat: a third trimester pregnant woman or JWoww??

All you charming people who don't clean up after your dogs; please make a point of walking them near the old firehouse at Mercer and Grove....

Jersey City clears 'Jersey Shore' spinoff

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Jersey City taxpayers won't be footing the bill for police assigned to security for the women of "Jersey Shore" and all the attention that comes with them.

New Jersey's second largest city has issued a permit to producers to film a spinoff of the reality series, featuring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. Filming is expected to begin later this month in the city's Grove Street Path neighborhood.

Police spokesman Edgar Martinez said Thursday the production company in charge of the show will pay for off-duty police officers to provide security and will pay for any additional officers if they are needed. In addition, he said, the production crew won't be taking parking spots from residents but will use pay lots.

Nearby Hoboken last week denied the show a permit to film, citing safety and quality of life concerns for residents of the city along the Hudson River.

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he believes the show is an opportunity to promote the city.

I am all for this petition against this. But I am wondering what will happen with it after the goal number of sigs is reached. Honest question. Do you really think the mayor will give a crap and listen to us now? I sure hope we make a difference here, but I hardly see the mayor pulling the plug or listening to us, unfortunately.

Anyone who thinks an Internet petition is going to make a difference needs to grow up.

If you really want this to stop, flood the mayor's office with phone calls, organize yourselves and contact news outlets. But an Internet petition is just silly.

I, for one, will treat this like having a zoo just down the street.

Fortunately it will all be over in about six weeks time, so much harm can really be done?

Well, perhaps the petition is a starting point? Which is why I was asking the petition poster what his long-term plan of attack is. And to let us know how we can help.

Oh for pete's sake.

Look, the papers are signed. Money has (most likely) been exchanged, legitimately and not so much. This is going to happen. Why not treat it like the carnival sideshow it is and just enjoy the spectacle? Six weeks is not a long time, and any petition will just make us look like a bunch of whiners.

I, for one, would rather be associated with guidos than crybabies.

I much rather sign a petition to kick out all the hipsters or yuppie morons from the midwest.

Half of you have lived here for 8 seconds, and you already want to start telling other people they can't move to JC.

We have more F*n "Dog Runs" than hot girls…

I for one, welcome these girls and all the hot slutty friends they will bring with them.

Start hitting the gym, fellas. We have some business to take care of.

Never thought I'd say this, but Hoboken is looking classier than JC. They at least have pride in their town, and they have leadership. Healy sounds like such an idiot with that quote, honestly.


I'm curious why this matters to you so much.


Primarily because I live here. I'm sure that there are things that bother you that I wouldn't bat an eyelid at.

I don't believe I stated that it would affect my life. I don't believe that something has to explicitly affect your life for you to give a damn about it. But...it WILL affect my life, seeing that I live 2 short blocks away, in ways that have been listed here (congestion, noise, public safety, general annoyances that come along with a high profile filming).

But the biggest reason as to why it "matters to me so much", is that I have pride in where I live and I'd rather it's image not be tarnished further. It's pretty simple.

Would I rather not have this practically in my backyard? Yes. Are there a ton of people that currently live in Jersey City that are far worse than these 2 twits? Yes. I wouldn't want to live next door to it, (and I feel sorry for the few that do), but it's not really going to make Jersey City better or worse. Furthermore, it's not these 2 that will do anything at all. It's all in how the producers portray the city. Looking at all the other shows they produce, there's not a good chance they will do anything to "glamorize" Jersey City, but they won't knock it down either. They didn't do anything for Seaside Heights because Seaside has ALWAYS been a dump. And as a previous poster said, Miami and Florence seem to be just fine. One thing it will definitely do is bring in business. Be prepared to see a lot more people wandering around and going to various bars looking for these "celebrities." ahem

about 2 weeks ago JC was mentioned on 30 Rock.

(discussing new boyfriend)
Jack: Where does he live?
Liz: I'm not telling you.
Jack Oh how bad can it be Lemon, Jersey CIty?

That is the national reputation we have. These girls will not help it, but not necessarily tarnish it further, esp. as mentioned, with their audience. They will spend most of the time in Manhattan or Hoboken probably. They're coming. It's not that big a deal so accepted it, close your eyes and it'll soon be over.

I agree with you 100%. I live fairly close by but I'll put up with the added noise and congestion for a few weeks if MTV floated Jersey City some much-needed cash to do this and no local taxpayer dollars are subsidizing this. I am not worried about any damage to Jersey City's "reputation" - they can't embarrass this city any more than it has already embarrassed itself thanks to our current administration.

Furthermore, this is a city after all, and so the added noise and congestion from various events and TV shows being filmed is going to happen sooner or later, and everybody knew that when they chose to live here. You want peace and quiet 24/7, try Springfield or Short Hills.

Attention producers - JWoww and Snooki need to booze with the local homeless drunk that goes around in the fisherman's longcoat and pushcart. You can find him pretty consistently around Varick and Christopher Colombus. He's a ratings goldmine...

The good thing about this is that it stopped all of your bitching and moaning posts about there not being a Whole Foods or freakin’ Trader Joes in the neighborhood. The bad thing is now you are all bitching and moaning about there being a Jwoww and a Snooki in the neighborhood. Can’t win.

Listen to some of the things you are saying..you are all 10 times worse then J and S. That dog shi* one is the topper..great neighbor. (big deal so Snooki pees over everything..no need to pull the “shi*” card)

This is a great idea for JC remember “any publicity is good publicity”. (isn’t that what Obama’s Rahm Emanuel always said? Got them both elected now didn’t it?) Hopefully this time the show will at least mention they are actually living IN Jersey City. Remember all of the respect we got from American Idol and the Red Bull Air Show? New York my as*!

I look at it this way even if the girls are shi* faced, falling down drunk or recovering from a hangover say in Liberty State Park. At least 8 million people will know LSP is in JC and it is right across the river from NYC and that beautiful skyline. (with it’s excellent new Liberty Tower) Or if they are peeing in a bush in front of a row of beautiful historical DTJC brownstones. Eight million people are going to see those beautiful DTJC brownstones. (although they might not be interested in buying a brownstone anymore with a “yellow” bush.... but I bet some fan (or creep) would paid plenty for that now “yellow” bush) Or if they are shopping for hair product in Hudson Mall. Eight million people will say ..…gee what a freakin hell hole. (only kidding)


I read that the contract says the JC Police can shut down production at any time if things get out of hand. Hopefully the 3 cops assigned to the film crew (or Healy administration spies) will report back to the chief (and mayor) and let him know if it looks like they are making a mockery of JC. If so yes…pull the plug or start not giving them access to certain parts of the city so they leave. Get the ticket books out..mess with them like you mess with us.


PS – do you see the thousands of views on this thread? Do you think all of those lurkers live in JC? It is starting behave yourselves. Hello America.

Seaside was called Sleaside YEARS before the Jersey Shore ever got there.

People saying they "ruined" whatever reputation Seaside had clearly have never been there and are talking out their asses. If anything the people they brought down there and the money that was brought into the town definetly helped. But now you have so many people going to Sleaside the police are overwhelmed on weekends. Kinda like the random meathead fights in Hobroken.

The people who think they will ruin the reputation of Jersey City are full of themselves. Whenever I tell people I live here they sigh and give me a look like they're sorry for me. The majority of people think Jersey City is all ghetto. I think anything that would show Jersey City in another light (ie you won't get mugged walking down the street) might be a benefit.

I never said seaside had a good reputation. I just said that the jersey shore has cemented their reputation forever as the place of sleaziness forever. They can't recover from it...If JC is made a mockery of which is highly likely, then I only hope JC can recover from it. I don't want JC to be known for the jersey shore...I rather have JC be unknown.

And to those asking whether I'm living in JC - yes - for more than 26 yrs. About to buy a condo in the area.
