February 27 – March 7
It’s March! Well, it’s almost March and we are inching closer and closer to spring time! But as we’ve come to expect from this unpredictable weather, don’t put your sweaters and boots away just yet. Even though the weather is frightful (well, some days out of the week) downtown Jersey City has many events coming up!
February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day! Whether she has disappointed you in the past with the tooth- to – money exchange, it’s time we celebrate the hard working tooth fairy for one day a year. But the quest for healthy teeth and check ups shouldn’t occur once a year. Luckily for you, the HDSID has you covered! We have multiple dentistry offices in our district that are staffed with patient and understanding dentists and nurses. Look, going to the dentist can cause fear and anxiety to many people (the official term is odontophobia from the Greek words for “tooth” and “fear”) but we have great dentists in the HDSID that will take care of you and your family!
- Jersey City Pediatric Dentistry
- Modern Family Dentistry
- Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry of NJ
- Strong Roots Dental

National Read Across America Day is March 2nd! Just because you’re not in grammar school anymore (who doesn’t miss the school Book Fair?!) doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of this day. Dust off your Dr. Seuss hat, head over to Word Bookstore, get a book and read! Maybe one of your New Year’s resolutions was to read more? We all know that resolutions don’t last so why not try again and read? Revisit an old childhood favorite or discover a new book, fiction or non-fiction, it doesn’t matter- just read!
Oreo Cookie Day- granted it doesn’t generate the nostalgia of the chocolate chip cookie or wholesomeness of the oatmeal cookie or the edginess of the chocolate and sea salt cookie but there is something to be said about having a cold glass of milk and some Oreos. Or Oreo ice cream or frozen yogurt with Oreo toppings… You really don’t need an excuse to enjoy this treat but give it some love on March 6th!
Yoga Fest Jersey City 2018 is coming! On June 23 from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm get prepared to have the most relaxing, Zen experience! The event is being hosted by Jivamukti Yoga Center Jersey City and HDSID on the Pedestrian Mall.
