SNOOKI and JWOWW'S untitled "Jersey Shore" spin-off was going to be set in Hoboken, New Jersey . . . but the city has BLOCKED that from happening by denying the production's request for a film permit.
--Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer sent a letter to the show's production company explaining, quote, "After careful deliberation . . . [we've] determined that in the interest of public safety and quality of life, the permit application has been denied."
--The producers CAN appeal the decision . . . but they better not attempt to film in Hoboken without a permit, as they've supposedly done in other locations.
--The letter warns, quote, "There will be zero tolerance for this . . . any attempts to film in a manner that is not permitted without a permit will be dealt with immediately and aggressively by the City of Hoboken."
--The mayor cites multiple reasons for the denial . . . including potential crowd and traffic control problems, and just being a general annoyance . . . but the major issue is the fact that the show wants to film on a 24/7 basis.
--Hoboken has a law that prohibits filming after 11:00 P.M. in residential areas.
--There's no comment from the production company, but this doesn't seem like something that would put the show in jeopardy. If not Hoboken, they'll find someplace else to do it.
