The mayor of Hoboken, New Jersey has shot down MTV’s request to film the ladies’ “Jersey Shore” spin-off in the city.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer sent a letter to the network and the show’s production company stating, “Based on protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents, the city has denied a film permit for a spin-off of the ‘Jersey Shore’ to be filmed in public locations.”
“Any attempts to film in a manner that is not permitted without a permit will be dealt with immediately and aggressively by the city of Hoboken,” adds Zimmer.
In September, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie blocked a $420,000 tax credit for the producers of “Jersey Shore” to film the hit MTV series in his state, explaining that he was “duty-bound” to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a bill “for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”
Where do you think Snooki and JWoww should take their antics now that Hoboken is off-limits?
