NBHA completes renovation project
The North Bergen Housing Authority has completed a major renovation project on the upper parking deck at the Theresa Ferraro affordable housing building at 6201 Grand Avenue.
The old deck was scarified, the concrete deck was sealed with a waterproof sealant, and new asphalt was applied, with the goal of eliminating water infiltration issues.
The $32,000 cost of project was offset by private funds from the limited partnership that owns the property, North Bergen Renaissance Urban Renewal LP.
“We are very happy we were able to accomplish this at little inconvenience to the residents and at a reasonable cost,” said NBHA Executive Director Gerald Sanzari.
Want to get your writing published?
New York City-area journalism professor Susan Shapiro, who has helped countless writers break into essay and memoir writing, recently published a collection of advice and examples in her Byline Bible: Get Published in Five Weeks. Shapiro is giving a reading in Hudson County in early November: at Little City Books in Hoboken, six blocks from the light rail station, on Friday, Nov. 2.
Several other Jersey authors who had their writing excerpted in her book will also read and share their paths to publication, including Hoboken-based novelist and essayist Caren Lissner (whose humor piece from McSweeney’s appears in the book). The bookstore is a six-block walk from the Hoboken train terminal.
