CAT Will Promote Jersey City’s Rich Culture, History, and Arts

Jersey City is New Jersey’s Shining Star and it is time for the world to know it. That’s what a group of artists, business leaders and tourism officials were told during a kick-off breakfast in April to announce the city’s own Council on Arts and Tourism.

The Council, also known as CAT, is the first major effort by a city agency to promote Jersey City for its historical, cultural and artistic value. Speaking at the breakfast was First Lady Sandra Bolden Cunningham, who will head up CAT, which is being run through the Jersey City Economic Development Corporation.

Mrs. Cunningham said the endeavor would be a partnership between the arts and business communities and the city to market Jersey City as a “destination location.”

“We already know how great Jersey City is because we live here,” Mrs. Cunningham said. “But we need to let the rest of the country and the world know about the treasures of Jersey City.”

The breakfast was also attended by Commissioner William Watley of the New Jersey Commerce & Economic Growth Commission. Following a short film about Jersey City’s history and culture, Commissioner Watley told the crowd the state was excited to work with the city.

Watley also presented a $25,000 check from the Commission signed by himself and Governor James McGreevey for development of Jersey City’s Council on Arts and Tourism.

The Council is currently organizing a steering committee to coordinate the initial development of CAT. Some plans already discussed are creating an official visitors guide with a map, a cultural and historical events calendar, and a hotel and restaurant guide. Mrs. Cunningham said she also wants the CAT to market the city via a website and national and regional print and broadcast media.

“There is more to New Jersey than just the Shore, and it is important the urban history and culture of Jersey City not only be preserved, but enjoyed,” Mrs. Cunningham said. “This is the kind of project where everyone benefits.”

Anyone who wants more information on the Council on Arts and Tourism, or who would like to be involved with CAT should contact the Jersey City EDC at (201) 333-7797, x. 26.
