JERSEY CITY - After being denied by Hoboken, Snooki and JWoww will soon begin shooting their new spinoff show in Jersey City.

The city has issued producers a permit to film a spinoff of the reality series "Jersey Shore" featuring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. 495 Productions will film in a two-story firehouse near the intersection of Grove and Mercer streets.

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy says he believes the show is an opportunity to promote the city.

Officials in Hoboken opted not to issue a permit for the new reality show, citing safety and quality of life concerns for residents of the city.

"Jersey Shore" has been filmed in Seaside Heights, Miami and Italy.
