The Historic Paulus Hook Association (HPHA), was founded on Sunday, September 24, 1974 as a 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the common good of area residents, improve the quality of life and advocate for open space, historic preservation, and responsible development in the Paulus Hook neighborhood of downtown Jersey City.
To be a member of the HPHA, a person must be over 18 years of age and a resident, property owner, or business owner within the boundaries of neighborhood, namely, Columbus Drive (on the north), the Hudson River (on the east), the Morris Canal Tidewater Basin (on the south), and Grove Street (on the west). Membership dues for individuals are currently $10 (ten) dollars per year (with a discount so that new members can join for $5).
Non-members and guests are welcome to attend all general meetings as observers. However, only members may vote.
General meetings of the HPHA are regularly held on the first Thursday evening of every month at 7:30 pm in a public place. Meetings currently take place in the Community Room at Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, 109 Grand Street (between Washington and Warren Streets), Jersey City, NJ.
