- Check out the Street Art on Broadway Avenue in Bayonne
In 2018, Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne had begun installing 10 statues on Broadway as part of its shopping district’s beautification program. There are now 12 statues stationed along the city’s main road and shopping avenue that are impossible to miss. Five of them are in the Special Improvement District from 17th Street to 30th Street, while the rest are scattered throughout the avenue.
“The goal of this program is to make Broadway a more attractive, fun place for shopping and dining,” Mayor Davis said. “Promoting Broadway as an interesting destination for consumers is good for our local small businesses.” Through giving local artists a very public and permanent platform to showcase their work, Mayor Davis aims to enrich the culture that already exists within the main avenue. Over the last few years, there have been new murals, painted utility boxes, and other initiatives to spread diversity and joy throughout the city of Bayonne.
