Don't get offended, I'm all for Jersey City history, but this isn't the first time you've posted a link that turned out to be spam.
Could you explain why you thought this was a great blog?

Did you even read it?
I'll brush aside my opinions about getting nostalgic about Dairy Queen, this seems to be a rather bizarre attempt to sell some property. 46-48 MLK.

Great Blog

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) In the 1970’s I remember a time when Jersey City was a great place for me. I remember all the action, the stores, the shoppers, the girls, seeing friends, hanging out, playing music, chess, telling jokes – it was off the hook!

My brother Ernie and I loved to see my dad and looked forward to spending our summers with him. We had a secret advantage – DAIRY QUEEN!

Jackson Avenue (now Martin Luther King Drive) was a Hot Spot for commerce back then. Everybody went on the ‘Ave’ and you could get anything, and see anybody. I remember my brother and I couldn’t wait to get to our father’s house on Wade Street, where we would spend the summers. Our first stop was to get fresh, and then go post up near the DQ.

All the girls back then would walk up and down Jackson Avenue, and the DQ was where they would walk as a destination to get some ice cream. Me and my brother Ernie were waiting.

If you you had a couple of bucks, you were guaranteed to be able to treat a pretty girl to an ice cream cone (if you wanted to).

Nowadays, the DQ is gone (sadly), and there is a Fried Chicken business there that also sells pizza. The new owner, I don’t think realizes the history of the place, and how important a role that place one played in the grand scheme of things.
