I shop at Shop-rite and I really resent your generalization that "POOR PEOPLE ARE IN THERE". Many different kinds of people shop there.
I think the important point to make about Sunac Natural Market Coming to 70 Marin is that will provide another choice of places for all people to shop. Everyone will benefit from having more choices. It will also provide jobs. I have never been in a Sunac store. I am hoping it will be a success.

Could it happen here?
Heights group concerned about possible rail disaster

by Al Sullivan  Reporter staff writer  Feb 07, 2016 
Concerned about the ever-increasing number of trains carrying fossil fuels near Jersey City Heights, community leaders will host a meeting that includes environmental officials and others to discuss the dangers associated with transporting of oil by rail in Jersey City.

Freight transport increased along the western slope of Jersey City in the early and mid-1990s when state and federal authorities closed down lines that ran along the waterfront. This was partly to make way for residential development of the waterfront and to provide a route for the Hudson Bergen Light Rail line from Bayonne and the West Side of Jersey City through the city to Hoboken, Weehawken, West New York, and North Bergen.

Although some of the old freight lines still exist in the Greenville section of Jersey City and parts of Bayonne, most of the current traffic goes in and out of Croxton Yards on the Jersey City/Secaucus border. The main access to these yards is a north/south corridor that parallels Tonnelle Avenue in Jersey City and North Bergen.

The public forum to be held on Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Church, 440 Hoboken Ave. in Jersey City will seek to draw connections between this local issue and the global impacts of climate change and continued fossil fuel dependency.

Troubles on the Jersey City Board of Education

Troubles on the Jersey City Board of Education

HUDSON REPORTER:  Feb 07, 2016 

The Jersey City Board of Education apparently still has not resolved the vote to reappoint Vidya Gangadin as president and John Reichart as vice president during its reorganization meeting last month, one of several legal and procedural controversies yet to be settled.

First, in what appears to have been a ploy to maintain control of the board in order to assure the reappointment of Dr. Marcia Lyles as superintendent, the board leadership may have violated Robert’s Rules of Order by counting abstentions as votes against Joel Torres, who was nominated first and would have been elected president by a 4 to 3 majority.

Communications between the board and state educational officials and other state education groups have yet to resolve whether the school board made a mistake in counting the abstentions as negative votes. A legal ruling could force the board to redo its reorganization vote. Even then, the pro-Lyle votes hold a 5 to 4 majority, so the result may not change the outcome, leaving Gangadin and Reichart as the presiding officers.

Next, there is a legal question about whether the board renewed Lyles’ contract properly. The board’s attorney ruled in December that Lyles’ contract would be automatically renewed if the board didn’t vote to decline to renew it. In December, the board was poised to approve the contract.

Walked through HP late afternoon today - pretty smoky smell all the way to 8th St. I like the smell - but I don't live there. If it's a regular feature there'll be local protests.

Agreed, the NJ laws are very fucked up. But she certainly can shoot him if this guy breaks in. She just may have to suffer legal consequences afterwards.

But like they say, better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6. This woman absolutely should buy a gun.

Michaelangelo Conte | The Jersey Journal

A 21-year-old Jersey City Heights man has been charged with violating a temporary restraining order by repeatedly visiting a woman's home and workplace, harassing her and telling her he loves her.

Carlos J. Santana, of Leonard Street off Central Avenue, is charged with stalking and harassing the woman.

A criminal complaint states that Santana has showing up at her home and work and saying: "I love you. Why you do this to me, you f***ing b****? Come here I wanna talk to you."

I'm not sure what you mean, "get around the CSX tunnel." It runs parallel to the cut, but you don't have to deal with it. Of course, you could walk through it, but I wouldn't want to be in there if a train come through. The noise would be insane.

Re: Jersey City Man Is Arrested After Drone Hits Empire State Building

I was sitting on a bench at the South end of the esplanade at Liberty State Park when a couple of Bros launched a big loud drone and flew it directly towards the Statue of Liberty, flying it directly over the heads of all of us on the pathway. About 30' offshore the drone's engines cut out and it speared down into the water instantly, from a height of probably 50'. If it had hit someone it certainly would have messed them up, it was big and moving fast.
I wondered then and still wonder now if Liberty Island has radio jammers that prevent drone overflights? it would make sense in a sort of paranoid way. I myself am not supper worried about getting hit by one but I do see why civil authorities are stepping in to regulate them.

I suppose the ban is in place to protect LSP guests from getting hit by idiots who fly their drones into the ESB. 40 floors? I guess his string broke? ( sarcasm ) Kites really?

I listen to WNYC daily, and I am often pleasantly surprised at the decent amount of coverage drawn by JC.

About the drone, this is something that I have been meaning to ask in JCLIST and keep forgetting to do so: does anyone know why drones are now banned in LSP? I was just at Maritime Parc a few days ago and was surprised to see the huge electronic billboard at the park's entrance announcing the banning of drones at LSP.

It smacks of kowtowing to the hysteria of some. If the concern is devices up in the air could somehow pose a danger to people or aircrafts, what about kites? If the concern is noise (and, really, drones aren't that loud!) what about all the boomboxes and speakers that are cranked up by weekend patrons grilling in the park?

EDIT: I looked it up online. Turns out this is a blanket ban by the State of NJ on ALL state parks. Flying drones is otherwise allowed in JC city parks, as long as you stay clear of the airport 5-miles no-fly zones.

Jersey City marks lowest unemployment rate in 25 years

And, new statistics show, increasingly employed. Jersey City hit a milestone in December when preliminary figures show its unemployment rate dipped to 4.1 percent, the lowest the jobless rate has been in at least 25 years. The last time the rate went below 5 percent was December 2006.

The city's unemployment rate has seen a fairly steady decline since September 2009, when it reached 11.9 percent. By December 2015, Jersey City's jobless rate was lower than the statewide rate, which was 4.4 percent, and lower than New York City's rate of 5 percent.

Fulop tops 2016 Power List | Political Insider

By Agustin C. Torres | The Jersey Journal
Follow on Twitter
on February 06, 2016 at 7:07 AM

1. Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop is the bartender who mixes the political cocktails in Hudson County and now the Garden State. When he wants to make a point or gain leverage, he serves it straight or "neat," such as his comments favoring a casino in Jersey City -- and his ability to woo Democratic Party support in North Jersey, where most of the votes live and needed in his run for governor.

Yet, at a Monday meeting with local residents Fulop responded to a question revealing his comedic side by saying he was "not actively" seeking the high office.

More than halfway through his term, Fulop has pushed major development in the city and the construction of towers has made its way up the Palisades into Journal Square. Other areas surely targeted for development are McGinley Square and the Marion section. A planned city hall annex on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive is a what-else-can-we-do attempt to attract consumer traffic and some developer interest to the poorer section of the city.

Naturally, the use of tax abatements for prime real estate has ignited a citywide debate. The mayor is also known for pushing progressive policies, such as the expansion of city health insurance to cover transgender workers. Much of his efforts are being copied in other municipalities in New Jersey and in other states.

His weakness is what always plagues Jersey City politicians seeking higher office -- "kryptonite" from the home planet. Fulop's aspirations are seen by critics as a betrayal to his local office, a slap in the city's face. Bolstering the perception of a failed administration is an alleged inability to solve or show interest in tackling classic urban concerns – crime, violent crime, more crime, poverty, quality of life, and more. This is advertising cannon fodder for gubernatorial aspirants but it is doubtful that it would hurt a statewide campaign.

After defeating the administration of Jerramiah Healy in 2013, Fulop received credit by other pols for uniting the Hudson County Democratic Organization. There's no need to tip the bartender. He will receive support from a major-funded super PAC in the 2017 gubernatorial campaign.

The question locals will have to ask is whether the mayor will leave the city better than when he took office?

Water quality report for 2015:

https://www.unitedwater.com/uploadedfi ... 0/w_d15_ccr_jcity_web.pdf

Some homes (my old home did) still have lead water mains (which were installed up until the 1960s.). You can also get lead from older soldered copper pipes.

However, don't get too frightened over lead pipes. They can be replaced. Contrary to popular belief, the Romans didn't suffer cases of severe lead poisoning from lead pipes. Lead doesn't build up much when the water is running (metals in elemental form don't dissolve readily in water). Plus, our water is almost neutral in pH, so it is not unusually corrosive.

If the lead is in the form of a salt (will readily dissolve in water), such as lead acetate used in paint, you can be poisoned very easily, as your body will metabolize it. The Romans used lead acetate to sweeten cheap wine.. which is where their poisoning cases came from.


While this report is fine, we care about the independent testing that will verify whether the information contained on the report you linked is truly accurate.

I think we may be talking about 2 separate developments. I'm speaking of the one on Marin between 8th and 9th (across from Hudson Tech). I walk past them daily and it definitely looks like a pile driver that they're using. It's a closed construction space, isn't taking up any parking, and isn't particularly messy. It's just loud. I believe I know which one you're talking about, though.
