Red light cameras (championed by Whizzy, who got a lot of $ from the red light camera companies) died after the trial period showed little or no improvement of safety-but the towns LOVED it because they sucked up the cash from tickets.

I have no problem believing the contractor is skanky, but every forced air home I've spent time in has been freezing on the bottom level, as opposed to hydronic or steam heat. It might be worth the extra cost to pull and reset the lower kitchen cabs and counter after having radiant installed. Your ceilings being high makes it even more of a no brainer. My kitchen & downstairs bath have joist bay radiant I installed

Much of the NJ State legislature. That's a way bigger battle. Let's start with JC and what can be done here.

It got attention for about 5 mins. Sadly, the city has done nothing about it in terms of improving enforcement. So we all need to keep the pressure on with consistent public pressure in all its forms.

I complained to the city about a month ago about drivers routinely going through the stop sign at LSP, the corner of Phillip St. and Johnston. It's very dangerous for pedestrians/cyclists going into or out of the park. The employee said he would send a police car out to observe. I'm not clear what good that did or could do, but the situation is the same.

I also volunteered to take videos of drivers going through the stop sign. I was told that videos by the general public are not admissible.

However, if enough of us did this and posted it online and to Fulop - assuming it's legal, it may have an effect. Or maybe I have my rose-colored glasses on.


YESSSS! DO THIS and tweet it to @stevenfulop with hashtag #jcmakeityours. This fits in completely with the effort needed here to get the Mayor's public attention on this city-wide problem.

As a driver, I have to say the prevailing "pedestrian can do no wrong" attitude doesn't help solve the problem at all.

I think there has to be a multi pronged approach where Jay walkers are actively treated as as driver not yielding to pedestrians.


That is not the POV here at all. Enforcement includes all users of the roads, including pedestrians.

Is your condo a loft? If so, the issue may just come with the territory. As I understand it, lofts are very difficult to heat.

Pronti Construction Issues
#14
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


We bought a new construction condo in the Heights last year that was built by Pronti Construction. Not only were they absolutely awful to deal with, but they did a pretty crappy job on a few things and lied to us a lot. Most issues we fixed ourselves, but there is 1 major one that is creating a lot of issues right now.

We have two floors with the first being ground level. Our first floor is so cold during the winter that we need to have space heaters on (when we don't people actually have to wear puff coats while inside) which is just frustrating since this is brand new construction. Here are the shoddy design issues that we are facing:

1. One heating system controls both floors and is located on the 2nd floor

2. Ground floor is tile built on a concrete slab (no basement) so the floor is freezing. (we do have an area rug in our living room area).

3. All vents on the 1st floor are located on the ceiling and the heats just goes straight upstairs

During the winter, we close all the vents upstairs to try to push more heat downstairs, but still need to have space heaters on downstairs while we crack windows open upstairs since it is so hot.

We have now lived here for more than 1 year so the new construction warranty is over. We have had contractors come over to look at installing radiant heat in the floors but not only is it crazy expensive but we are unable to do it since it will raise the floor 1 inch and our kitchen appliances and counter cannot accommodate that. And I hate the idea of spending a lot of money when we just bought a house that shouldn't be causing us issues because it is new!

Summary. I hate Pronti so much and needed to publicly vent in case any one else is dealing with them (and if you are looking in the Heights there is a good chance that you are). One would think that a company who builds things would actually know how to build things.

Also, I also would appreciate any ideas of how to fix if you have them!

Hoboken Crash: Feds Can't Reach Black Box, Camera Because of Asbestos, Sources Say

Investigators trying to determine what caused a deadly commuter train crash in New Jersey were delayed Saturday in getting to the front of the mangled locomotive — hindering the search for a key piece of evidence inside.

Crews couldn't gain access to the front cab of the doomed train — where an event recorder and an outward-facing camera are trapped — because the station the train crashed into in Hoboken suffered too much structural damage and the asbestos levels are too high, federal sources told NBC News.

On Friday, the dangerous levels of asbestos forced investigators to leave the century-old station, the sources said.

One event recorder, or "black box," has been recovered from the train that slammed into the Hoboken Terminal on Thursday morning at the height of rush hour, killing a woman who was standing on the platform and injuring more than 100 other people.

But investigators hit a snag while trying to gather information from that black box, too, as they couldn't download data in the field and had to send the recorder to its manufacturer, vice chairwoman of the National Transportation Safety Board, T. Bella Dinh-Zarr, said Friday.

The event recorder recovered from the locomotive of NJ Transit Pascack Valley Line train #1614. The recorder was shipped to the manufacturer to perform a download at their facility following an unsuccessful attempt to download data on scene.

Investigators have yet to interview the train's engineer, 48-year-old Thomas Gallagher, federal sources said Saturday afternoon. But toxicology tests on Gallagher were underway.

Gallagher is a 29-year veteran of New Jersey Transit, his father told NBC News.

His phone and the phones of the other two crew members involved in the crash — a conductor and a brakeman — have been confiscated so that investigators can determine whether any crew members might have been distracted, the federal sources said.

One federal source said investigators are still largely puzzled as to why the train entered the Hoboken station at such a high rate of speed. Investigators are expected to be at the site of the crash for at least another week.

Best reflection on Fulop I've seen so far: “He made his name dismantling a corrupt machine in Jersey City but it turns out he was only using it for parts.”

Fulop is done. He will not be reelected in Jersey City now.

Who will our next mayor be? Any bright, progressive local people out there who would do well by the entire city? Someone who is not corrupt, not seeking higher office beyond Jersey City and not incompetent?

Here's the list I see:

Barbara Camacho
Sean Connors
Sandra Cunningham
Rich Boggiano
Greg Kierce
Rolando Lavarro
Dan Levin
Charles Mainor
Bill Matsikoudis
Bill O'Dea
Candice Osbourne
Joseph Scott
Michael Yun

Anyone else out there? Maybe someone that needs to be recruited into the role?

Sadly, nothing was included to try and reduce the costs of these projects (ie prevailing wage repeal). When we spend more than any other state in the US, and most by several times, this impacts how far our $'s go. (Reference how 12 miles of RT35 repair down the shore have exceeded costs by an astounding $76 million!)


Christie let us down. I'd expect a Dem governor to sign off on this but not him. I assume the sales tax reduction was his idea but as you said, this plan doesn't address the underlying problems.

I think the Driver was on a suicide mission. Because passengers on the first car said his door was open, could mean anything from just opening the door or it was something else. Since the passenger said it was unusual of the driver to do so. IT has never been done before. But didn't mind the view of what the driver sees, so he didn't pay it no mind. Then the driver sped as he was approaching what it should be a slow and decelerating stop. Because another passenger said she did not feel the driver was breaking and he acted nothing was wrong.
