Part of the Art Installation By Jeankarlos Cruz
part of Riverview Neighborhood Association's goal to partner with the
City of Jersey City to restore historic Holland Street, one of four
remaining cobblestone streets in Jersey City, and to further the
presentation of the arts here in the Heights, RNA sponsored a second
stage at this year's Riverview Jazz Festival.
stage, located on historic Holland Street with the Ogden Avenue bridge
as a backdrop, featured four bands and an art installation by Jeankarlos
Cruz, created specifically for this unique space. Featured on
RNA's Holland Street Stage were the NJCU Jazz Quintet, Rebeca Vallejo,
TK Blue and George Coleman & the Rivington Project. Food
trucks, beverages and RNA's volunteers rounded out the venue.
Hundreds of music lovers came out to enjoy the all day event that concluded the week long festival. We would like to thank organizers Margo Parks, Bryan Beninghove and all at RiverviewJazz.org for their hard work and
dedication to making this year's festival a huge success. We also
want to thank the RNA Board and the countless volunteers whom devoted
many hours preparing Holland St for this event. Special thanks to
Jeankarlos Cruz for his art installation that truly transformed
the space, New Heights Art Supply for sponsoring said art installation
(they will be opening their arts supply shop on July 2nd at 345 Central Ave 2nd Fl) and JCity Realty for consistently supporting arts in the Heights.
addition to enjoying fabulous music and art, RNA's volunteers gathered
several hundred signatures on a petition to to restore Holland Street
and direct pedestrian access to it via the restoring the staircase that
links Riverview Park to Holland Street at the Ogden Avenue Bridge.
