The spinoff of MTV’s "Jersey Shore" featuring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley has landed a home after being denied a filming permit in Hoboken, N.J., reports the Associated Press.

The spinoff will be taped in Jersey City, New Jersey’s second-largest city, with its mayor, Jerramiah Healy, noting that he believes the show will help promote the city, according to the piece.

As previously reported, Hoboken denied a filming permit, explaining the decision was based on "protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents," according to a statement from its mayor.

The production company will pay for off-duty police officers or any other officers that will be needed, while the production crew will use pay lots instead of taking parking spots from residents of Jersey City, the Associated Press notes.

Filming in Jersey City was set to begin later this month, the story reports.
