All About The View

It all began in February 2021 when the Jersey City Planning Board approved the design of The View, located at 670 West Side Avenue. The following month, news circulated that Hudson County officials and Landmark Hospitality broke ground on The View — a three-story, 47-feet high building that will feature two banquet halls, a public restaurant, and a rooftop dining area. There will also be an outdoor patio and balconies on the second floor.

The first banquet hall will be 2,850 square feet, capping the capacity at 190 guests, and the second will be approximately 3,375 square feet and can accommodate up to 225 guests. The public restaurant will be 1,225 square feet and will be able to host 175 patrons.

The architect of the multi-million-dollar project (approximately $12M), Jeffrey Fleischer, previously stated that there will be two elevators, one of which will be a service elevator for the staff. A new parking lot will also be part of the expansion. 

Casino In The Park

Prior to The View, the historic landmark, Casino In The Park, took over the space. It opened in 1950 and closed in 2017 before being demolished in April of 2020. Casino In The Park was a banquet hall that hosted political events, weddings, and fundraisers. Fun Fact: In 1963, Frank Sinatra celebrated his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary here.

Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise stated at the groundbreaking ceremony for The View: “Lincoln Park has long been a jewel for Jersey City, with its previous banquet hall hosting distinguished guests from Frank Sinatra to President Bill Clinton. Today marks a new chapter for the future of Lincoln Park and once again puts our community on the map as a place where lifelong memories will be created. We are excited to bring this special new venue to our community and look forward to this dining experience opening in the not so distant future.”

Angelo Del Russo, CEO of the contractor Del-Sano Contracting Corp., added, “The current renaissance in Jersey City will sustain and advance the history of the former Casino in the Park. We are grateful to serve as the General Contractor working with the Hudson County Improvement Authority and Landmark Hospitality on The View at Lincoln Park.”

While Hudson County Improvement Authority owns The View, Landmark Hospitality, which also owns Liberty House Restaurant, has reportedly signed a long-term lease to operate the new dining hall.

The View at Lincoln Park was last expected to be completed by September, but a sign on the construction site now, which includes ownership details, states the estimated completion date is August 2022. Anyone who frequently visits Lincoln Park has seen how much hard work has gone into the construction by workers hoping to complete it in the time period given of 12-14 months.

Lincoln Park is a popular spot where locals go to take in some greenery. The massive 273.4 acres of space features a well-kempt water fountain with a picturesque statue, a lake to go fishing, track, tennis court, kids’ water park and playground, bike and running path, baseball fields, basketball courts, football fields, soccer fields, barbecue and picnic areas, and gazebos. 

In the meantime, locals and visitors can check out West Side Community Alliance’s (WSCA) Farmers Market at the West Side Ave Lincoln Park entrance every Sunday from 9AM-2PM.
