Sorry, pal, but you are. You truly are. One of the most clear cases of bigotry I've seen.

If you decide that "guilt by association" is the best argument you can find, - you should work harder and try to find something where there is at least some association.

B.T.W. There used to be one KKK recruiter who was as recently as 4 years ago called "the conscience of the Senate" by his Parteigenossen. Now, there is association, and a strong one!

It is amazing how you guys can do this truly Orwellian doublethink. Your own brother is a living proof that a person can build himself up with his own hard labor, - and you manage to mention him as an illustration for the direct opposite claim of yours? No wonder he is estranged, - if I had an hateful envious sibling like you who'd badmouth me for my success, we'd be estranged too.

Do you offer similar programs in the summer? During the school year, we have conflicts on saturdays. But during the summer, I'd love to sign up my kids on some of the classes below.

Thanks for keeping us up to date on your offerings.

Re: So I met some of the management of that Aussie company buying up houses in JC

Is this the house on 7th by an auto shop? I was wondering who was fixing that house up.

I'm a neighbor to several Dixon properties that are being / have been done up rather nicely, at least compared to their previous states of sadness. If they can get away with finding tenants who can afford $3k+/month, fine with me. Unlike Adonis, however, I won't dismiss out of hand the concerns over the long term prospects of these properties at the hands of not real estate developers, but a mutual fund looking for profits without holding much, if any, liability on failure of returns. Several outlets have already raised the concerns of another housing crisis based on rental-backed securities, not unlike the mortgage-backed securities that have left us in a bit of a mess for the last six years or so.

Exactly. I couldn't agree more here. Toy or no toy (and I don't care either way), it is bringing the buyers and sellers together in the most efficient way possible and doing a better job than those crappy taxis that barely hold together, among other things. Sounds like... capitalism maybe? A foreign concept to some I'm sure, but I remember a few things from high school economics.

I can only guess that the taxis of Jersey City and other places will try to get to City Hall to regulate Uber out of business, rather than embracing the capitalist system and try to efficiently compete (also a foreign concept to the taxi industry). "Try" being the operative word here. They succeeded in doing so in DC, but only for a few months.

Be careful. You are not supposed to post anything about these Aussie investors that might be construed as positive no matter what your real life experience was with them.

Please stick with just negative speculation like everyone else does on this board when it comes to real estate developers.

Well done and fair evaluation. The fact remains, no one is buying up and building pre K and any schools. Its just to expensive to build them. The time to hold the developers feet to the fire was KRE in Journal Square and we gave away the store! most downtown developers are fine with the minimum in the executive order. The executive order is window dressing.

I have been trying to get a hold of the landlord of the place next to mine. The previous tenants didn't speak English and neither did some of the people working on the place, so trying to get messages to the owner didn't work out.

I just wanted to tell them their roof (which I can see easily from my roof deck) was getting ready to fail.

The building is empty now (small 2-family) and today someone who did speak English showed up. Turns out he is one of the managers. Told him about the roof, he came up and took a look. Then brought a bunch of other guys to take a look as well. After a little conversation, I found out the following:

1. after the building in question was already renovated, they are completely re-doing it. The managers were unhappy with the layout and the quality of the work done. So it is being done again.

2. One of the guys was a building sustainability expert.

3. They have been pushing Dixon to purchase more in the Heights and around Journal Square.

It surprised me. I am used to property management groups specializing in shit housing filled with Section 8 tenants. This building was originally a cat piss soaked house with a cat-lady-trash-horder (plus really mean pitbull) tenant.

I was pleasantly surprised the caliber of people (at least what I could get from a 30 minute conversation) that I met today.

Re: Empty school parking on Bright Street

the 28 Bright street lot is going to be an affordable housing project, with low and moderate units. The same developer did a project on MLK drive. I heard it will be 30 units and will need a zoning change. First we get micro units and now a low and mod deal! why not sell the lot the community for parking! Paulus Hook owns the lot on the corner of Washington and Sussex. Plenty of residents would buy into the lot, like the residents of Paulus Hook did.

Been discussed in the New Urbanist circles. In some cities north of 25% of the city is devoted to surface parking.

I concur with elsquid. Putting on-street bike lanes on the left is certainly not a slam-dunk. Cars expect cyclists (and slower vehicles in general) to be on the right. And I'll be using them on a regular basis.

So you have never seen family cars use Newark Avenue for the PATH? You have never seen buses traveled down Newark Avenue, also? People use more than one direction because the area is congested. Actually, you make better time traveling through the Holland Tunnel than traveling from the Holland Tunnel to various downtown streets. A neighbor who has MS and lives downtown always complain once she is in NYC, traffic flows faster than in downtown JC. She spends more time in traffic when she exits the Holland Tunnel and travels to her home in downtown JC.

While many families drop off their relatives at the PATH station by car, they are dropping them off at the entrance on the corner of Christopher Columbus and Marin, where there is a lane specifically made for dropping off/picking up people.

Tibetan monks visiting Jersey City to create sand mandala in City Hall

Print By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal
on April 24, 2014 at 12:17 PM, updated April 24, 2014 at 12:53 PM

On the second floor of City Hall in Jersey City, just around the corner from the mayor’s office, three Tibetan monks have been immersed in the quiet creation of a sand mandala since Monday morning.

Mandalas, made out of millions of grains of sand colored in 13 different hues, are a 2,500-year Tibetan tradition representing the universe. As soon as they are completed, a task that can take up to a month, they are destroyed, symbolizing the impermanence of life.

JJ piece....
