In the first half of the last century, residents of the Heights area of Jersey City were predominantly of German national origin. Pohlman’s Hall on Odgen Avenue was the center of the German cultural community. Up until the time of WWI, Liberty Avenue was named Germania Avenue. Due to concerns of sedition and sabotage, during both WWI and WW2 the U.S. Government monitored and limited assembly in the Heights area (including at St. Nicholas Church).
