Their is a map in the link. JC already has at least 26 shootings so far with 20 victims, 17 are non-fatal and 3 are fatal. This is alot for the coldest months of the year that usually see much less then warmer months. According to statistics available going back to 2013 the highest number recorded was 11 victims total for January and February. Keep in mind 2016 had more total victims then 2013 to 2015 but last year their were very few shootings at all in the winter.

You sure about that? From COMPSTAT:

Jan 2012: 1 homicide
Jan 2013: 1
Jan 2014: 1
Jan 2015: 1
Jan 2016: 1
Feb 2012: 2
Feb 2013: 1
Feb 2014: 0
Feb 2015: 0
Feb 2016: 3

3 homicides for Jan and Feb is not exactly an outlier. In fact, it's the same as last year.

I realize there is a tendency to find evidence of disastrous escalation of crime rates under every rock, but crime doesn't quite work that way. It's irregular and periodic, and not all that uncommon to have a clump of violent crimes, followed by months of relatively low activity, that no one bothers to notice.

Let's wait at least 6 months before declaring some kind of trend, hmm?

The lying mass media is the one who came up with the term "fake news," remember?

It was a scapegoat so they could avoid taking responsibility for being 100% wrong with pretty much everything they said about the election.


I'm talking about him lying, stop trying to spin it.


By complaining about lying, that implies you care about the truth, which you won't find in the mass media.


Nor the president


He's always accurate on his main points. Sometimes he gets little details wrong and the fake news media likes to pretend it's the end of the world.


Let me just make sure I get this.
Trump never lies and the media only lies, right?


Regarding the big points, yes.


Mkay, good luck with that.

11-year restoration of historic Jersey City building may end soon

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- The 11-year renovation of the historic Apple Tree House, a two-story brick-and-fieldstone structure near Journal Square that was once owned by one of Jersey City's original settlers, may be nearing completion.

Mayor Steve Fulop said today that the city project, which began in May 2006, is "on the goal line."

"Everything is pretty much done," Fulop said at the annual President's Day ceremony outside the historic house. "Hopefully this spring -- well, I know this spring -- we'll have a ribbon-cutting."

Trade Center Tower Is Splashed With Graffiti, by Invitation

New York Times
By JAMES BARRON
FEB. 20, 2017

Joohee Park, who goes by Stickymonger, used vinyl stickers to create “Cosmic Tower” on the 69th floor of 4 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. Several street artists were invited to create works on the floor. Credit Damon Winter/The New York Times
The 69th floor at 4 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan has been hit by street artists. There is evidence of spray paint, stencils and wheat paste, clues that artists who go by names like Rubin 415, Stickymonger, Gumshoe and Layer Cake have been there.

The walls, and in one section the floor, pop with colors and shapes usually found at street level — surreal splashes here, images with phrases like “No Brain No Pain” there. There are Statues of Liberty with almost kaleidoscopic faces. There is a giant $10 bill composed of words that theatergoers would recognize from “Hamilton.”

But the art on the 69th floor is different from street art, and not just because it is indoors and several hundred feet above the street. It is different because none of it is illegal. It is different because the artists were not on the run, chased off by a landlord. In fact, the artists were invited by a creative consultant working for Larry Silverstein, the developer of the 72-story building.

The consultant, Robert Marcucci, called the result a “contradiction on all levels” — a “blend of both inner-city street art tension and fine-art meditation” in a corporate setting. It is art, he said, that reflects “the extremely stressed fabric of modern society that is evolving more and more each day.”

Continue reading the main story
To create it, he welcomed artists who work in eye-popping genres that once exasperated the establishment. Only a few are old enough to remember the 1970s, when street art and graffiti exploded in New York City. Since then street art, in particular, has moved away from its renegade roots. Now it claims mainstream respectability; galleries represent the artists and exhibitions put their work before the public.

And it was a gallery that pointed the artists to Mr. Marcucci. The idea for doing street art on the 69th floor started when Dara McQuillan, the chief marketing officer for Silverstein Properties, took some photographs to a nearby framing shop, the World Trade Gallery, which doubles as an exhibition space. Mr. McQuillan was intrigued by what he saw and struck up a conversation with the owner, Doug Smith.

“He said, ‘I’m curating these artists and I thought I’d offer them a space, but it’s small,’” Mr. McQuillan recalled. “I said, ‘Would they be interested in a bigger space?’ He came by and I took him up, and his eyes practically popped out of his head.”

A bigger space, in this case, meant wide. “A lot of artists are accustomed to 30 inches, 40 inches,” Mr. Smith said. “Street artists, they can do 30 feet.” Ron English’s “No Brain No Pain” is one inch wider than that. David Hollier’s “$10 Bill” is 23 feet 11 inches wide by 11 feet 8 inches high.

The floor’s south side evolved into a text side, with “$10 Bill” on a wall there. (It faces the graveyard at Trinity Church, Mr. Smith noted, where Alexander Hamilton is buried.) The east side of the floor became “more fine art,” Mr. Marcucci said, while the west side was “more of a graphic side, something akin to a graphic novel — fantasy, comic.”

One work — “In Bloom,” by David Uda, who is known as Duda — is a tribute to Sept. 11, Mr. Marcucci said.

For some artists, the 69th floor was a departure from their previous work spaces. Mr. English once wandered the streets with a bucket of glue, plastering paintings on billboards, and once he barely escaped an angry mob in Jersey City (which later gave him keys to the city). The 69th floor was quiet, and the artists had as much time as they wanted.

Another artist on the 69th floor, Sean Sullivan, said his street name, Layer Cake, came from his fascination with the way street art was made — layered over what was there before. For one of the Trade Center works on which he collaborated, Mr. Smith used images of people who had come before: the face of his grandfather, who, he said, “beat federal indictments, like, for running numbers.” Not pictured is his father, who he says is a detective on the New York Police Department’s bomb squad.

Angela China, known as Gumshoe, did three panels titled “Stripes and Stilettos.” Ms. China said she had wanted to do an image of a Campbell’s soup can with legs, similar to a mural she had created in Bushwick, Brooklyn. But she said it had not proved suitable for the 69th floor. “I heard through the grapevine, ‘Keep it very PG,’” she said.

Mr. Marcucci said he had been concerned about content that could be seen as offensive, and had discouraged it in some cases. He also said he had worried that as the artists worked, the 69th floor would be the scene of soap-operatic dramas driven by egos and tempers. “But it didn’t turn into ‘Housewives of Beverly Hills’ or something,” he said. “I was actually shocked to see the camaraderie.” Mr. Marcucci also said he was intrigued to see “people crossing over into fine art from street art.”

Street art is often temporary, painted over fairly quickly. The 69th floor may be different.

Last week, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that the music-streaming service Spotify was leasing space at 4 World Trade Center and would move its American headquarters there. The 378,000 square feet that it will occupy will include the 69th floor.

“It is our intention to keep as much of the images as we can,” said Graham James, a spokesman for Spotify, noting that several artists with creations on the floor had done work for Spotify. “We’ll be reaching out to all of the artists as we move forward with the design planning.”

JERSEY CITY -- Four people were injured in three separate shootings in Jersey City over the weekend, officials said.

The three shootings all occurred within 18 hours, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

At about 11:50 p.m. on Saturday, a 31-year-old man was shot in the chest on Martin Luther King Drive near Woodlawn Avenue. He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center where he remains in critical condition, Morrill said.

Then at about 1 a.m. a 42-year-old man was shot in the hip and ankle near Rutgers Avenue and Wade Street. His injuries were not considered life threatening, she said.

Sunday evening, a man and woman were shot on Bergen Avenue near the Clendenny Avenue intersection.

The victims, a 23-year-old Bergen Avenue man and a 21-year-old Duncan Avenue woman, were treated for their injuries, which were not life threatening, Morrill said.

No one was arrested in any of the weekend shootings and the investigations are ongoing.

Bumping this old thread....

If anyone is looking at alternative siding products, check out Eldorado Stone. I ordered samples of their Roma brick line and it was the first time I got an engineered facade stone that looks and feels like the real thing. I am doing one interior wall with the product as part of upgrading a bedroom.

I am hoping that their other styles have similar authenticity. if so, I will be using this product (not the Roma brick) for redoing the outside on two properties in the future ($$$ permitting).

Allied Building Supply (near 440 Home Depot) carries the product.
