In Jersey City - What Parish?

Permanent URI for this collection

The city was predominately Catholic. Normally when you met someone for the first time one of the questions you would ask was "What Parish?" This would lead to a conversation about people you both knew. This album is dedicated to the people from Jersey City and the memories they have of their parish and old neighborhood. I have included in this album not only Catholic parishes but also Protestant, Orthodox and Jewish communities. It is also designed to show the beauty of the architectural gems of the city.
