Whole new world: Developers break ground on residences in former Pep Boys lot

Men in hard hats moved across the Jersey City site that had once housed a Pep Boys auto center last Wednesday, working with coordinated tenacity and marking the beginning of what may be the city’s most ambitious construction project in decades.
