From the May issue: Development that’s remaking pockets of New Jersey’s Hudson County has taken hold in West New York. But the revamping of the mostly immigrant, working-class community is following two tracks: higher-end projects for the waterfront area, which has been revitalized by the Port Imperial project, and smaller projects along interior streets that still retain a blue-collar feel. But both these high-end and more modest visions are getting clouded by the national economic slowdown. Sales of new construction have trailed off throughout the town of 46,000, and brokers report declining prices at smaller projects.
