Forget Hoboken. Jersey City is welcoming the Snooki/J-WOWW “Jersey Shore” spinoff with open arms. The show is slated to start shooting at a two-story firehouse (hello, super-long stripper pole!) in the city on Feb. 17.
“The more people that see anything about Jersey City and see what we have in Jersey, the better it is for Jersey City,” mayor Jerramiah Healy tells the Star-Ledger.
Hoboken, the show’s first proposed shooting location, was nixed when city officials forbade the reality show from shooting in public places after 11 p.m. On Wednesday (Feb. 8), MTV announced that fellow castmate Pauly D’s own spinoff, “The Pauly D Project,” will launch on March 29.
