Ho ho ho, this one is rich.

The developer then decided to go the path of least resistance and build as-of-right, which to the horror of the parking NIMBYs in the neighborhood, included retail instead of parking.

So now half the neighborhood is up in arms at the self-appointed idiots that run the VNA because of this lack of parking. Hopefully this is the start of a NIMBY civil war in the VNA and they'll be too paralyzed to initiate their pointless lawsuits in the future.


Sweet! I'll bring the popcorn.

You would think funeral homes would never go out of business but there use to be way more in Jersey City. A number probably have closed in recent years because the property is worth so much more than the business. Gone recently are Bromirski, Introcaso and Houghton which were around for many years. Probably a few more went out of business I can't think of.

The busiest ones left I believe are the 3 larger facilities mentioned with significant parking; Greenville McLaughlin and Riotto. There are a few smaller funeral homes left also but I don't think they are as updated.

Is the parking downtown in the historic district? If not he might be able to keep it as a parking spot. If you call the city he will just need to get it inspected and pay for the permit.

Good research (neverleft) it may be part of that project. The funeral home also owned the property across from the lot on the other side of Homestead Place which runs between Pavonia and Van Reipen so it may very well include all of that.

I wonder if it will part of the Homestead development. It includes a few properties that span from Cottage Street to the Path Center. Some kind of Homestead Walkway from Cottage to Van Reipen to Pavonia. With retail and restaurants along the way.

Goggle homestead place development jersey city

I got this from skyscraperpage.com

Homestead Walkway, Journal Square Namdar Group (Effy Namdar- Homestead Assembleage LLC)

Phase 1: 27-story building with 350 units and reconstruction of Synagogue at 35 Cottage Street

Phase 2: 25-story building with 220 units at 26-28 Van Reipen Avenue

Phase 3: 20-story building with 180 units at 26-28 Cottage Street

All fronting a new pedestrian walkway called the Homestead Walkway from Cottage to the PATH connection at Journal Squared.

I have no information on what will be built. My friends from the city and a realtor told me it was sold for well over 16 million so the development must be huge. Funeral homes in New York City have no parking so people are use to public garages. Though, here in Jersey City, there are a few funeral homes with more convenient parking.

As for on site ground level parking, it appears Greenville and Riotto funeral homes have the largest parking lots. I probably will choose one of the other funeral homes going forward as they all seem to have good reputations reading online reviews and from what I've seen paying my respects over the years.

Does anyone have any personal experiences with any of these other funeral homes?

ROFL!!!!

What a mess.

Informal parking spots that are not big enough and end up with cars blocking the sidewalk are a huge problem for pedestrians.

I wish there was a revenue neutral tax on parking sports and heavy fines for illegal ones.

I have spoken with Maryellen McLaughlin and most of this information is correct. The lot will be sold but they will have exclusive use of it until developers break ground which will be about two years. They also have secured parking that will be validated in the lot next door so they will NOT be closing THANK GOD!

my favorite example of how homemade parking spots ruin a Street is Pavonia by Square Ramp, off Tonnelle. Every horizontal surface was paved over and cars are jammed into every space-often with bumpers illegally blocking the sidewalk when the spots aren’t deep enough to park without inconvenienceing pedestrians. After heavy snowfall the chumps who ruined the street are out trying to shovel off their parking spaces...but the pigs had long ago paved over any space big enough to park a car and there’s now NO PLACE to put the snow. So you see the car owners frantically trying to clear the snow off their parking spot but It’s simply impossible to put the snow someplace where it won’t go into someone else’s spot. If ONLY there was something like....a large dedicated parking structure nearby? Where cars could be parked without destroying the aesthetics of a neighborhood? Oh wait, there is. And it’s literally at the end of their block.

It's literally next to.one of the largest parking garages in the city!

I respect McLaughlin for not selling out. It also makes sense to sell the vacant lot since it would be cheaper just to offer validations at Journal Sauare garage than to keep the lot underutilized.So, TimmyTimBuckTwo, any details about what this new building would be?

There was many funeral homes downtown but they did not have adequate parking, when McLaughlin opened up, it took away their business due to their parking. Now I wonder how long, they will last. Greenville and Riotto still have adequate parking. I still remember of friend telling me his relative got a boot on their car when they came to a downtown funeral home to attend a wake.

They never did sell the building and now they are sandwiched in between the high-rise and Port Authority. From what I understand the owner of the funeral home did not want to sell the parking lot but was forced out because other relatives owned the lion share. The funeral home is able to utilize it until they start developing probably within two years.

Fully concur. There is nothing wrong with calling the city to check whether someone's action was legal. It is not snitching, just awareness on both sides. A friend of mine has been very effective using this approach. #TruthAnd(hopefully) (re)conciliation.

I recall reading or hearing that McLaughlin Funeral Home was offered a boat load of money by KRE Group (headed by Murray Kushner) for their building as KRE was buying up the other properties on the block for their JSquared project but McLaughlin refused the offer.

Looking at an aerial view of the area I wonder if the property will wind up like Vera Coking’s property in Atlantic City in the 1970’s she refused a $1 million ($3.5 million in 2018) offer. The casino developer eventually built around her house.

If they validate that would be nice but probably not the most convenient finding parking in a public garage. Don't enjoy shopping for funeral homes but have to eventually plan for the inevitable.

There’s 3,000 parking spaces in decks within a 2 block radius of the funeral home, including the big PATH deck right on top of the funeral home itself. Seems ample enough.

Insult so nice you needed to say it twice? And what I would say is it was still affecting parking and aesthetics, but if it's legal there's nothing to do about it. But from everything I've ever heard on this issue, that's unlikely. This stuff is a plague, I've seen houses where they have 3 cars parked in front of one 25' lot, one with a hydrant out front!

Saying "People wouldn't need to resort to this if only the city blah blah PARKING!" is 100% a rationalization and justification for this behavior. It wouldn't matter if there were a municipal lot on every block, Yvonne and her NAs would whine about the cost and having to trudge a whole 500 feet to get their vehicle.

People like the neighbor in this post and 135jc feel they're entitled enough to have their own private parking and that rules shouldn't apply to them, just like this POS here: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/n ... hg6s2k72he6nge-story.html
