About the HPHA

The Historic Paulus Hook Association (HPHA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Since its founding in 1974, the HPHA's goal has been to promote the common good of area residents while improving quality of life and advocating for open space, historic preservation, and responsible development in the Paulus Hook neighborhood of downtown Jersey City. We actively support local recycling efforts, work with local businesses to create and run community events, and engage in negotiations with local construction to ensure residents' lives have limited disruption. We are committed to making Paulus Hook a safe environment for our families and pets.

Non-members and guests are welcome to attend all general meetings, so please come join us! General meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 7:30 pm. Meetings typically take place in the Community Room at Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church located at 109 Grand St. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, all live meetings are postponed and we will instead by meeting virtually. Links to our meetings and news about our events are posted on our website and on our TwitterInstagram and Facebook feeds.

To be a member of the HPHA, an individual must be over 18 years of age and a resident, property owner, or business owner within the boundaries of our neighborhood, which are shown in the map below. Annual membership dues are $10 for individuals, and $100 for businesses. Visit our "Business" section to see the businesses we work with, and be on the lookout for storefronts with the HPHA decal in their window. Help us support the local businesses that help support our community!
