Since last year, the HDSID have been giving out awards
This year, the HDSID has chosen three people that have done a lot for the community and the Historic Downtown district.
- Nima Nili is the treasurer on the HDSID board and has done a lot for the community. Being treasurer is not easy, balancing and juggling the work is not easy, but Nimi has been a board member for 8 years and has been doing a wonderful job.
- Dr. Siegel of Drs. Savoy, Siegel & Desai Optometrists is retiring and has been a board member and has contributed to the growth of Jersey City for 50+ years. He’s wonderful, there for you for checkups when needed, and his love for JC shows through his actions.
- Dancing Tony dedicates so much time coordinating Groove on Grove events and bringing out equipment, acting as Rachel Sieg’s partner in crime for each Groove on Grove event. With the 10-year anniversary coming up for both Groove on Grove and the Farmers Market, Dancing Tony has been a huge help putting together a big anniversary party, and it’s agreed that he certainly deserves an award.
A special thank you goes out to all of the HDSID board members. They give so much time and they are here to truly help to make Jersey City great.
