JERSEY CITY - Driving in one Jersey City neighborhood is about to get a little more complicated.

Beginning Tuesday, Newark Avenue between Grove and Barrow streets will be off limits to vehicles part of each day as the street is turned into a pedestrian plaza.

City leaders hope this will boost business at restaurants and encourage shopping.

The street will be shut down from 3 p.m. to midnight on weekdays and closed entirely on weekends.
