JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – The “Jersey Shore” spin-off has found a new Garden State home.

A week after Hoboken denied MTV a shooting permit, Snooki and friends will be free to G-T-L right next door in Jersey City.

The show’s producer has been granted a permit to shoot for six weeks in a two-story home near the corner of Grove and Mercer streets, according to reports.

Production is set to begin this month.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer said the city’s decision to deny a permit for a spin-off of the MTV reality show was based on the “negative impact it would have on the health, safety and welfare of our community.”

In a document on the City of Hoboken’s website, the mayor explained that because Hoboken is “geographically a very small city…onlookers and fans would find it very easy to follow the production through the streets…the density of our city does not lend itself to 24-hour activity as would be experienced by our citizens.”

The document goes on to say that “the constant presence of such a production would be an attractive nuisance causing crowds to assemble at every hour of the day and night.”

The “Jersey Shore” is now in its fifth season.
