The Village is a neighborhood in the western section of Historic Downtown in Jersey City. The neighborhood is bounded by Hamilton Park and Harsimus Cove and the Turnpike Extension to the west, on the other side of which Jones Park and Mary Benson Park are located. Newark Avenue is the major street running across the Village from east to west. The neighborhood for many years was considered the city's "Little Italy" neighborhood. Brunswick Street, between 1st and 10th Streets was once full of merchants and nicknamed "Bushel Avenue"[1][2]. St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church at 457 Monmouth St. 40°43′41″N 74°2′57″W received its historic designation on March 22, 2004.
