    More than 150 people packed the city council meeting room at city hall on Monday night, June 26 for a hearing about a proposed zoning change that will allow buildings 15 stories or more near the Penn Station area of Ironbound. The crowd gasped when the planner who presented the proposed amendment said that the buildings could go as high as 18 stories, if developers put in 3 floors of parking on the bottom.
