Recent Fire on Central Avenue

On behalf of Central Avenue’s neighborhood and business community, the CASID graciously thanks the Jersey City Fire Department for their incredible work to stop a five-alarm fire at 333 and 335 Central Avenue in the early morning hours of March 28th. The fire destroyed two buildings including one that was 119 years old (333 Central Ave) before the JCFD was able to prevent it from spreading further. Two families were displaced and three Central Avenue businesses (Central Avenue Farms, Fantasy Party Supply, and Photo Pronto) were lost. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims including two firefighters sent to the hospital as a result of the fire. - Central Avenue SID Management Corp

Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage.
