JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The “Jersey Shore” spin-off has found a new Garden State home.'The Loss Of A Hero': New York Mourns Death Of 22-Year-Old NYPD Officer Jason Rivera
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.”READ MORE: Dozens Gather In Harlem To Pray For Families Of NYPD Officers Shot While Responding To Domestic Dispute
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.”
