Ground was broken Tuesday on a $3M renovation to the American Legion Post 107 in Hoboken. The project will take the building from a single floor to five and create space for affordable housing for six homeless veterans in the area.

"I think it's the greatest thing that's ever happened to Hoboken," said Vinny Wassman, the post's Chaplain.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer says that the expansion is a major step in ending homelessness among veterans in Hoboken, and a salute to those who served.

"It's extremely important that we not only say thank you to our veterans, but we really take affirmative steps to help the people that have served our country and sacrificed for our country," Zimmer said.

The expansion, complete with a new flood proof community center and six apartments, is expected to be finished by next fall.
