Pink Priscilla

It's a Girl! Or a giant bottle of Pepto-Bismol exploded. Either way, the former Sweet Priscilla cafe that closed earlier this summer, got a paint job.

This super secret spy shot of the interior suggests it will still be a cafe, albeit a very pink cafe.

Liberty Harbor North

A few more photos of the new (and temporarily, last) Liberty Harbor North Building. New construction beyond the completion of this building is on hold for at least a year on the site.

Small Development Rises on First Street

A new building is sprouting up on Jersey Avenue at First Street. The site broke ground a few weeks ago and is already well onto a third story. The lot was once used for selling Christmas trees. The site is just off Newark Avenue -- the bank of America on Newark Avenue spans the block and is visible on the left in the above photo.

The building does appear to have large open spaces on the ground floor, presumably for retail space.

Crystal Point Loses Extra E, Ready to "Open"

The Real Deal notes that Crystal Point, the Second Street tower rapidly rising on the waterfront, is set to open next month. While progress has advanced a few more floors than depicted in the above photo, they are not actually anywhere near really opening. Also of note, the superfluous "e" at the end of Point seems to have been removed.

Knitting Cafe to Replace Failed Deli on Jersey Avenue

The Stockinette, a knitting cafe, will open in a store front on Jersey Avenue at Third Street. The long vacant storefront had been home to the mythical Gabagoolz Italian Deli, a store that never seemed to be opened, but took years to officially close. The Stockinette also has a website.

213 Newark Avenue Pops Above Ground

213 Newark Avenue, Jersey City

213 Newark Avenue, a Field's Development Project, has popped up above the ground level. The six story building fills in a major vacant lot on Newark Avenue, and will include retail as well as apartments.

For years, the property sat vacant with a for sale sign. The original five story plan was amended after Field's bought the property.

Last year, union representatives picketed the site.
