Jersey City clears ‘Jersey Shore’ spinoff
Question of the Day
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Jersey City taxpayers won’t be footing the bill for police assigned to security for the women of “Jersey Shore” and all the attention that comes with them.
New Jersey’s second largest city has issued a permit to producers to film a spinoff of the reality series, featuring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley. Filming is expected to begin later this month in the city’s Grove Street Path neighborhood.
Police spokesman Edgar Martinez said Thursday the production company in charge of the show will pay for off-duty police officers to provide security and will pay for any additional officers if they are needed. In addition, he said, the production crew won’t be taking parking spots from residents but will use pay lots.
Nearby Hoboken last week denied the show a permit to film, citing safety and quality of life concerns for residents of the city along the Hudson River.
Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he believes the show is an opportunity to promote the city.
