  18. What's the history of Jersey City?

    This "original" little municipality called Jersey City grew out of the area known as Powles or Paulus Hook, a tract of solid land jutting out into the Hudson River, bounded by Harsimus Cove on the north and south cove or Communipaw Bay on the south, and separated from the marsh land on the west by a creek that had been enlarged about 20 feet in width, large enough for ordinary boats to pass. Warren Street was roughly its western boundary. This area was purchased from the Dutch West India Company by Abraham Planck. In 1698, it was purchased from Planck by Cornelius Van Vorst. In 1804 Anthony Dey, a prominent New York lawyer, acquired it and soon thereafter passed title to Abraham Varick, also a prominent New Yorker, who the following day conveyed the area to Col. Richard Varick (a former Mayor of New York who had been General Washington's aide-de-camp in the American Revolution), Jacob Radcliff (a former Mayor of New York) and Anthony Dey (a wealthy New York lawyer and cousin of Col. Varick). These three were the leaders of The Associates of the Jersey Company, whose charter was drafted by Alexander Hamilton. For fifteen years it possessed the government and shaped the destiny of the infant community.

  21. Who was Frank Hague?

    Back to top
    Frank Hague was Mayor of Jersey City from May 15, 1917 until his retirement on June 17, 1947. His name is synonymous with that early 20th century urban American blend of political favoritism and social welfare known as bossism.

    It's generally conceded that Hague's influence was a not insignificant factor in the election of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
  22. Isn't Jersey City notorious for corruption?


    Many of Frank Hague's activities were, in a narrow sense, not illegal, for no relevant laws were then in place. Hague ruled during an era of massive social upheaval: unrestrained capitalism, violent labor movements, economic depression, and world war. Organized crime grew ever more powerful. Foreign isms attempted to gain American support. The social safety net basically did not exist. During this period Jersey City was relatively calm.

    Hague was succeeded by his nephew, Eggers. The next elected Mayor was John V. Kenny. For the next twenty-four years, through a number of puppets, John V. Kenny wielded a political machine of unprecedented venality and corruption. Organized crime figures, in effect, became a shadow government. Jersey City was in a tailspin. John V. Kenny and his cronies were finally ousted in 1971 by convictions in a federal court.

    In the 90's a serious case of corruption was uncovered at the Municipal Sewerage Authority. This centered around grave errors in judgement of a single official and was not a systemic problem.

    While Mayor, Gerald McCann was convicted of federal crimes, but these did not occur during his term of office. The unlawful acts did not involve the public trust.

    The tattered, not so colorful past of Jersey City is just that - the past. The modern government exists to serve the public.

  23. Are there any books on the history of Jersey City?
