Last week, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer refused to allow the show, featuring the “Jersey Shore” stars, to film in Hoboken, citing “public safety and quality of life concerns”for the city.

Like a superhero coming to the rescue, officials in Jersey Shore, Pa., stepped in and offered a home for the show. But now, the “Jersey” cast members are staying true to their roots.

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy seems pleased with the decision, telling WNYW, “My view is the more people that see anything about Jersey City and see what we have in Jersey, the better it is for Jersey City.”
