    This exhibit at Casa Colombo Center for the Arts, 380 Monmouth Street, Jersey City, tells the story of Italian immigration to the Village section of Downtown Jersey City and the growth of the first Italian Roman Catholic parish in New Jersey, Holy Rosary on Sixth Street. Themes explored include the parallel growth of the community, church, and railroads in the Downtown, the effects of local government projects and broader economic and social trends on Village decline, and opportunities for renewed vibrancy.
