bayone
Contrary to popular belief that Bayonne is named after the bayonet on a gun, it is actually named after Bayonne, France, its sister city.

I've lived in Bayonne since 5 years old and I'm 45 now. Bayonne is a 50/50 split to me. They are building more commercial businesses and repairing bridges but in the meantime they are letting certain areas look very bad. Avenue E once you pay the toll is a disgrace. Garbage everywhere! TBC

I have always been proud to have been born in Bayonne Hospitaln(5th. fl. floor) in 1940 it was first opened). And to this day I’m proud to have lived in this city and when people say ” I’m sorry for you” my reply NO I”M SORRY FOR YOU to have not been born in our Bayonne”! Your loss.! My children were born there and my youngest wish she had been!

Thank you for this article!

It amazes me how people could be proud of being from such a trashy city. There are closed business all over Bayonne and projects littering the neighborhood. This list was so pathetic. It’s nothing to be proud of. It’s something to be embarrassed about.

T.A. …. Back in the day when I lived in Bayonne while I was growing up, it was a great city to live in, great people, good sports teams to play on, everyone knew everyone, no one feared for their lives, you did not really have to lock your doors, the Carnivals, Broadway and everyone helped everyone. (There were a lot more but these made the top of my quick thought list.) What changed and why? I do not know because I left Bayonne in 97 right before whatever took place to make the city of Bayonne what it is now. Maybe someone who still lives there can tell us….

Though I was born in Jersey City, I spent many of my weekends shopping in Bayonne and all my doctors were in Bayonne. I left Jersey City in 1977 and moved to Bayonne, where I lived very happily until I moved to New York City after I married my husband. I’ve met Tammy Blanchard on several occasions and she is lovely. She is so talented and won the Emmy for her performance as the young Judy Garland, ME AND MY SHADOWS. I’m always excited to see something she’s in.

Your article was very interesting, sorry for the negativity, but you can’t please everyone. I didn’t like the comment about Jack Britt. The person should not comment about someone who cannot defend himself. He passed away this year.

I have written one book “BAYONNE Memoirs in Black and White” its 300 pages with over 500 mages of Bayonne and its people. I still get asked “Why didn’t you write about this or that?”
I also wrote two books about men who served during WW II , with BIOS and photographs. I would comment that during WW II Bayonne was indeed a target for U Boat attack. One or two torpedoes hitting Tide Water or Standard Oil would have blown up most of the East coast. Think about it, there could of been a chain reaction.

Does anyone remember the bowling alleys below the DeWitt theater? I set pins there in the late 40s early 50s for 10 cents a line. How about the trollys from the car barns in Greenville into Bayonne. My grandfather was a trolly conductor and then they went to electrified busses on AVE C. We lived on 54th St between AVE B & C. Went to ST Vincents grade school then to VO-TECH. Delivered milk for Tommy Fico until I went into the service in 1955. Great times growing up in a great town.

John McGary 4:27pm on January 11, 2015

Frank, Went to the DeWitt many, many times, never knew there was a bowling alley under it. I went to St. Vincent’s in 55 and 56 when we lived on 49th Street. We moved to Andrew Street and I finished grammar school at S.A. Roberson. It was a great place to grow up in. Don’t get there much anymore but have GREAT memories of it.

I think this a GREAT article! It seems like in the last 10-15 years, everytime Bayonne made the news it was for something negative (contestants on reality shows misbehaving or guidance counselors). It is really good to know that there are way more good things to focus on and be proud of.

I left Bayonne in the late 90’s after growing up there, and I will admit that it has gone downhill from what I could tell on return visits. But maybe with more articles like these, Bayonne can make a comeback in the 21st century. Knowing the people who live there, if anyone can do it, they can.

Bayonne was the very best place to grow up. I walked to school, both Horace Mann and Bayonne High every day..Played in the streets and park after school. Rode my bike to the boat pond and walked Broadway for the fun of it. Never worried about being hurt or in trouble. Lived very close to the JCC where everyone gathered for club meetings or dances. Also frequented Naples Pizza down the street on Broadway weekly.. Have very fond memories of Bayonne, actually my brother still has his Podiatry office there.

From The New York Times: “Bayonne Medical Center charged the highest amounts in the country for nearly one-quarter of the most common hospital treatments, according to a New York Times analysis of 2011 data, the most recent available. No other hospital was at the top of the price list more often.”

Born & raised in Bayonne on 46 St. Have great memories of crossing the bridge at 46th & Ave E. Passing the American Standard Toilet Bowl factory & heading right down to the Long Docks to go crabbing & skinny dipping. Going to the Painted Pony Ranch to rent a horse at $2.50 an hour. Eventually I got a job there. Saved my money & finally was able to buy my very own horse. Growing up in the 50’s & 60’s was like a scene out of the movies. The church feasts, the excursions, TAC dances, Uncle Milties & the list goes on. Safe & proud was the city of Bayonne. Very glad I grew up in Bayonne. At one point, Bayonne was listed as the 23rd safest city of it’s size in the entire country!!

We used to go to Eagle Rock off Broadway between Bayonne & Jersey City and build a fire and roast mickies (potatos) just threw them in the fire and ate the charcoal and all. Skating rink at the Boulevard with the moonlight skating with the twirling ball. Boulevard pool 25cents to get in. White Castle right in front with 10 sliders for a buck.

I am a true Bayonne girl, born and raised until I left for college in 1990. I lived on 22nd Street, the same house my mother grew up in, and my grandmother grew up in! As a matter of fact, most of my block was family-which doesn’t happen anywhere today! I am in Georgia now, but whenever I get the chance to visit up north we always make a stop in Bayonne and go to Pompei for my very favorite pizza, and pick up Judickes donuts for my kids and drive by “the house”. Even when my husband goes to NYC for business he takes his clients to Pompei for pizza. I have only the fondest memories of my hometown and when I meet someone and they ask where I’m from because of my strong accent, I tell them proudly “I was born and raised in Bayonne, NJ”. It’s what makes me awesome-like no one else.
