This chapter details the controversy arising from the New Jersey commission's street-widening agreement with Jersey City. Under the deal, the New Jersey negotiating committee agreed to pay for the widening of streets in Jersey City at a cost of about $1 million, with New York paying half. However, the New York commissioners denied any knowledge of such an agreement. The street-widening controversy was more than just an argument over what negotiating authority the New York commissioners had given to their brethren from across the river or if they had known all along about the commitments made. It also became a debate among the New Jersey commissioners over the true purpose of the agreement with Jersey City Mayor Frank Hague.
