They're right though. This is a city issue and they are skirting on their responsibility.

Keep the phone number of the local municipality handy in order to request a bus stop to be shoveled.

Talk about chutzpah... NJ Transit should be excoriated by state administrators for brazenly absolving themselves of any and all responsibility to the customers they are supposed to serve.

I guess that since they provide crappy service, seldom on time, with some of these buses poorly maintained, it shouldn't be a surprised they refuse to do nothing more for their customers.

Correct, you pay a PATH fare at Exchange Place to get the round-trip ferry ticket, and on the way back, you don't pay another PATH fare.

I assume you can still buy single ferry tickets (more expensive than PATH fares) or use your monthly pass.

So for the price of a single PATH fare you get a round trip ferry ticket ?


Not sure why this is so surprising. If you are headed into Manhattan, and the WTC PATH is not running, how would you get back?? They have to give you a roundtrip ticket on your way out of EXP so you can complete your trip to/from NYC.

I already said it twice and this is my 3rd time, YES. (I didn't say it made sense.)

New info for those who haven't ridden - there is wording on the ferry ticket to the effect of, only valid during the weekend issued.

I had a tradition for years of stopping there with the after school Hoboken bound carpool on particularly fine days in spring & fall and getting a coffee for me and donuts for the kids that we'd consume on the nice little patch of lawn they have next to them. No one ever got sick.

You got that right!

Capital's price on PVC seemed great considering the warranty, till another roofer pointed out that the parapets were crumbling and the mortar was gone! They were going to wrap the crumbling masonry in PVC and walk away making it a hidden time bomb. Not good.

Another roofer on another roof ignored that the timber on the roof edge was rotted away where water had pooled. After the roof was done I noticed the siding shingles buckling from the whole roof sagging! I had to tear down the ceiling under it to get at it to shore up the roof.

Lastly, not roofing, I discovered that 2 bathrooms I had build had no waterproofing membrane on the cement board under the tile, considered mandatory today by tile professionals. I discovered this when I had to rip out a windowsill in the shower that they had failed to pitch so the water would run off rather than pool and leak through.

Lesson is most contractors are happy to leave you with a time bomb if they can argue it wasn't in their scope of work or you didn't ask for it specifically. I've learned my lesson, I'm going to hover over the next contractor I hire and make sure it's done right. I have no idea what people with less skills, knowledge & free time can do. Sorry for the rant, I'm disgusted.


definitely the best practice if you can spare the time and somewhat competent enough to understand what is going on - I feel bad for the token person that hires contractors to do work and have absolutely no idea about the right way to do things. As far as hovering over the contractor I definitely generally agree in being as present and observant as possible while they are working as long as you dont get in their way and piss them off.

in deciding between bitumen and PVC, the contractor i used said they have lots of jobs repairing PVC because when applying the air pressure to seal it to the decking, it's not overly apparent that they are covering all the surface compared to torch down which creates issues.

Does anyone know whether covering the entire surface existing planking deck with plywood is standard practice before applying the base sheet ?

"Jersey City Police Cease Fire units were on the scene of a shots fired incident with property damage reported on a street in the city on Saturday morning.

According to preliminary reports, police responded to reports of shots fired in the vicinity of 225 Van Horne Street shortly before 5:30 a.m. where officers arrived and began to canvas the scene for evidence and injured victims.

Police immediately located one shell casing during their search but after canvassing the area, officers found that bullets smashed through the windows of two residences according to reports."

Re: JC Woman Accuses Murphy Staffer of Rape

State lawmakers investigating how Gov. Phil Murphy’s office handled rape allegations against a senior administration staffer are locked in a fight with Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez’s office over e-mails that may raise questions about Suarez’s claims she had no knowledge of the case, NJ Advance Media has learned.

The dispute lays bare tension between the prosecutor and the legislative oversight committee, which has been conducting hearings on how Murphy’s administration responded to allegations one state official, Katie Brennan, brought forth against another high-level staffer, Albert J. Alvarez.

While I can understand the discomfort you've had with not feeling well, unless that hot chocolate was the only thing you consumed that day, it's a bit of reach to blame the DD in a public forum such as this. Plus, it's flu season and there's a nasty bug that comes on really fast and makes you feel like crap for a while (and includes gastro symptoms). Our whole family had it in varying degrees and almost everyone I know has been impacted by the same bug. Hope you're feeling better.

N.J. councilman pleads not guilty to harassing campaign worker

HOBOKEN — Jersey City’s council president, Rolando Lavarro, pleaded not guilty in municipal court Thursday morning after being accused of harassment by someone who worked for a rival campaign last year.

Rampaul Guyadeen, 58, a Jersey City man who has worked behind-the-scenes for local politicians, alleges Lavarro confronted him outside School 23 on Election Day and told him “I’m going to f*** you up” when their dispute escalated.

Jersey City cop unions plead with Fulop not to ax off-duty jobs

JERSEY CITY — The city’s police unions are threatening legal action if Mayor Steve Fulop dismantles the program that allows cops to work off-duty jobs.

Fulop vowed last February to phase out the program after a string of cops admitted using it as part of a criminal conspiracy.

In a letter sent to police precincts on Wednesday, Jersey City Police Officers Benevolent Association President Carmine Disbrow and Bobby Kearns, head of the Jersey City Police Superiors Association, say the matter will land in court.

Fancy bar’s dress code against baggy pants and chains was ‘subliminal’ racism

Updated 7:20 PM; Posted 7:20 PM
By Barry Carter | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

People should dress nicely. Something simple, like that, could have done it.

But, The Ashford, a new Jersey City bar and lounge, made sure patrons understood its concept of unacceptable attire by posting a 15-item list of banned clothing and accessories last month during a soft opening.
