The Foundation began operation in 2006 with the idea of helping and improving the lives of people with disabilities and, in particular, the children. Since then, we have been able to assist people in Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and the United States with durable medical equipment. And afford that undoubtedly had improved the mobility and quality of life of many individuals. In 2008 we started our art program with four children and one goal in mind. To conduct and develop inclusive art education programs for young children and introduce the arts into their early educational experience, and over time, we have served over 6,000 children in Union City, Paterson, West New York, Mountainside and vicinities. This program has become the flagship of our foundation and is the bridge between special needs children and children without disabilities. A program that successfully teaches to our student tolerance, acceptance, inclusion and mutual respect through the arts, we also provide multiple services to the immigrant and art community. Your donations, sponsorship and support are vital to helping us to continue moving forward with our mission. Your economic assistance helps us to purchase supplies for art classes, cover expenses to repair donated durable medical equipment to then be donated to children in need and to cover the operative cost of the foundation.
Please help us with whatever you can as it will be much appreciated.

That sure is a last minute change. I’m a bit annoyed because I rearranged work commitments to attend and made sure to tell my neighbors to show up tomorrow. Sigh.

Glad I saw this, thanks.

Thanks for the heads up. Why the change?

thanks for posting.

107 New York Avenue is currently a pre-existing, non-conforming, 2-story active warehouse on an oversized lot. The developer seeks to adaptively reuse the existing structure and create a 6-story, multi-family building (75 units, 72 parking spaces, 38 bicycle spaces). Love it? Hate it? Indifferent? Let yourself be heard at the Zoning Board's meeting, next Thursday, 2/6 at City Hall at 6:30 PM.

They have scaled down because of compliments now you want them to do more... In the end this developer will just sell this lot and it will remain an eye sore abandoned warehouse! In the end doing a disservice to the community and our city as a whole. Congratulations on your achievements (sarcasm)

So crazy that a development of this size wouldn't have ground floor retail. That is so irritating.

I'm very sad the "community" has eliminated ground level retail from all the plans for the building. The area around supremo has been really taking off.

I'm a homeowner in New York av, and I am not agree with this development...enough buildings in hoboken and jsq area, we dont need more apt complex! We need better schools for our jersey city children's!! Around 6 complex were built around holland tunnel area!!! The worse part is that these developers got tax credits!! And we the homeowners got tax increase during 2018 ! Not fair!!!!

While the recurring "development at any cost" trolls advocate on behalf of a developer driven by pure greed (that has let his property crumble over the years) i'll stick with the neighbors and associations fighting for reasonable in-scale development and affordable units.

The corner of New York and Ravine is already dangerous and a traffic nightmare.

This project has been a complete disgrace from the start. Initially, the developer wanted 18 stories and through community organizing, the project has been decreased to 6 stories. I personally don’t mind the height or density, I hate when developers who neglect their buildings for years get rewarded for it with large scale variances for luxury housing without affordable housing. I understand that some people like luxury housing and retail and the community is getting plenty of it (see approvals everywhere). It’s time to focus upon what matters most: preventing displacement

Do it. Build it!! I am a neighbor
