CASID’s art initiatives have grown out of the belief that creative placemaking contributes to the economic and cultural vitality of neighborhoods. [Read More]

Past Public Artwork in the District:

Thank You Michael Yun. You Went Above and Beyond for Jersey City.

“We are beyond saddened by the passing of Councilman Michael Yun. He was a family man, a great businessman, and a tireless advocate for Jersey City throughout his nearly 4 decades of public service. More than that though, he was a great husband, father, and grandfather as he never missed a chance to share how proud he was of his family. This is devastating for all of us here, as Michael was part of our Jersey City family. We will miss him and we will continue to aggressively fight against this pandemic, now in his honor.” - Mayor Steven Fulop

The Central Avenue SID Management Corporation and its members are heartbroken. Michael Yun was a founding member of the CASID. He was the heart and soul of Central Avenue, The Heights main street community, for nearly 40 years. He was a true community leader, tireless advocate for Jersey City, a mentor to many, and dear friend to all of us. [Read More]
