Two dead bodies discovered in North Bergen park on Christmas Day. The bodies were found at James J. Braddock North Hudson Park at 10:15 a.m., and 1 p.m., respectively, yesterday. The deaths are said to be unrelated and one may have been a suicide, according to a press release from the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office.


  1. Not that long ago, the park was a pretty safe place to enjoy a walk, a jog, a quiet green space. Now I fear the park I once loved. Some people who use the park think it’s their own private dumping grounds, To see this park on a Monday morning from May until November could bring one to tears. Trash, bottles, food, paper plates are all left on the ground. Tables and benches are broken and the lake is littered. All during the year pit bulls and other large dogs are allowed to run off leash and drop their waste everywhere. People have been murdered, raped, mugged and who knows what else in this park. And…don’t blame the police. Take a look at some of the people who abuse this park. I can’t understand why the county doesn’t hire people to patrol these grounds and ticket the offenders, especially near the beautiful new playground that our children flock to.
    Maybe we could cut down on the bottles of urine, empty booze bottles and people od’d or passed out in the park.

    The landscaping is also very unsightly. I have suggested in the past that a civilian team come together and plant low maintenance gardens in the park with the assistance of scouts and school groups. Teaching children respect for nature will blossom in the future. With Lowe’s, Home Depot and Walmart just minutes away, I’m sure we could garner assistance with bulbs and tools to naturalize the unsightly areas.

    Come on, county officials, let’s get it together at Braddock Park before it goes so far down that it can’t be revived. It’s a million dollar location that is being left to ruin.
