Our community has been growing with the development of housing, new businesses, community gardens, renewed parks and a local swimming pool. Through it all, we have been able to maintain our sense of family, community, and rich history. A Lafayette Rising Community Day Celebration was the best way to commemorate the Lafayette/ Morris Canal neighborhood as well as bring exposure to our ever prospering community. The purpose of this event was to connect and reintroduce the treasures and talents within the community; in a new and fresh way. Our goal is to give back to a community that has supported generations of change and growth as well as beautify the grounds of our neighborhood.
Morris Canal CDC would like to extend a note of thanks to the Jersey City Fire Dept., Jersey City Police Dept. Jersey City Parks Coalition, Goldman Sachs, Hopkins Group, Calloway Construction, Capitol Co., Garfield Ave. Renewal, PPG, The Old Bergen Church Green Villain, vendors and volunteers for your cooperation and participation. Your efforts assisted in the success of this wonderful event.
