Hundreds gather at Madox to kick off Yelp’s Passport to Paulus Hook

Under clear summer skies, nearly 400 guests gathered at Madox on a recent Saturday afternoon to kick off Yelp’s Passport to Paulus Hook, a week-long event celebrating all that makes this historic Jersey City neighborhood so diverse and unique.

Madox is a collection of 131 upscale apartments created in a LEED Silver certified seven-story building that provides views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline.

Held on the expansive outdoor rooftop at the upscale rental building, the special party drew hundreds of residents and visitors from Jersey City and beyond who came to experience the Paulus Hook community and enjoy delights from some of New Jersey’s finest restaurants, breweries, bakeries and more. These local vendors joined with national brand name food and cocktail beverages to encourage guests to eat, drink, and shop locally.

The kick-off party received positive reviews, as nearly 40 participants registered their approval of the event, as well as the Madox building and the Paulus Hook neighborhood, on the Yelp website.

Among the well-known vendors who participated in the kick-off party were Carlos’ Bakery, VB3, Golden Krust Bakery, Empanada Mania, White Star Harbor, Marker’s Restaurant and the Iron Monkey. Beer enthusiasts enjoyed a selection of local New Jersey brews from New Jersey Beer Company, Climax Brewing and East Coast Beer.

Familiar brands including Tito’s Vodka, Senor Sangria, Spodee Wine, Pretzel Chips and Kind Bars were also highlighted. A professional DJ enhanced the social environment.

The kick-off event also raised money for the Historic Paulus Hook Association (HPHA).

Located at 198 Van Vorst Street, Madox is a collection of 131 upscale apartments created in a LEED Silver certified seven-story building, which boasts a multi-toned brick and steel exterior façade that blends with the existing streetscape of classic brownstones and provides impressive views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline.
