Berry Lane Skate Park
#1
Home away from home
Home away from home


Jersey City has a new skate park, a 12,000 sq ft poured concrete skate park at the Berry Lane Park.

Helped by funds from Tony Hawk Foundation.

Hudson Reporter.

Quote:
Fulop said the new facility will make up for the loss of a number of makeshift skateparks that local skateboarders had set up but were closed or relocated over the years.

“From a demolished local DIY skatepark in 2007 to an effective partnership with the skaters, municipality, and the JCRA, it’s great to see the Berry Lane Skatepark finally open,” said Programs Manager for The Skatepark Project Alec Beck. “Support from the community has brought this space from untenable soil to a rich experience for action sports enthusiasts of all ages and schedules.”

Quote:
Steven Lenardo, a local teacher and owner of NJ Skate shop in Jersey City, was a strong advocate for a local skatepark, according to Fulop.

“This is for my students, to offer them an alternative activity to more traditional sports and keep skateboarding alive and hopefully give it to new people to enjoy as I have my whole life,” Lenardo said.

Council President Joyce Watterman said the new skatepark provides new opportunities for youth to get out, exercise, and remain socially distanced in a safe environment.

Last week's storm was more intense, with all that loud thunder, that one didn't even have a name.

At the time of this post, the storm center is just north of Philly and the major rain bands have moved away from us. It appears the storm is moving a bit faster than forecast.

Other than my lights flickering once and a couple drops of water through two skylights, this hasn't been so bad so far.

Thanks so much for these updates, MDM, this is a very valuable service you're performing. This updates around storm time are literally the only useful info that ever comes from this dumpster fire forum. Please consider cross posting these to Nextdoor and Reddit.

Max wind gusts per NAM. I left out the Euro because I found out its wind gust predictions chronically over-estimate:

Euro and NAM models shifted the storm West again... which is good for us. If this holds true, we have a wind event with not a whole lot of rain.

Euro Rain totals:

Euro Sustained Winds (peak). Looks like about 65 to 70 MPH (tan area in center).

How bad is this going to be vs. Sandy?


I imagine not as bad. Sandy had a number of factors that came together to make a super storm surge:

Big (wide) storm with a low pressure.

The storm took a 'hard left turn' coming up the coast, which drove surge towards the shore.

It came in during a king high tide.

If Sandy came in at low tide, it would have been nothing special for a Nor'Easter.

A real disaster would be a repeat of the 1821 hurricane which is estimated to have been a strong Cat 3 when it hit NYC. The storm surge flooded Manhattan past Canal St. That storm came in at low tide!

The charters paid rent, but I recall not enough to cover the cost of construction, hence the hustle to monetize the gym. HPNA tried to meet there for a while, but they made it such a hassle we gave up. So much for "community center".

Weatherbell has their track farther East, with a Cat 1 hitting middle of Long Island. Their track follows the HMON hurricane model. GIF of the HMON storm track with sustained surface winds:

Latest from the Euro model:
Storm shifted West a bit. Speed of travel increased. Now the eye is passing just West of us.

The model has a choice for "Wind Gusts" and "Wind Gust Swath". Can't find anything that tells me exactly what the difference is. Though 'Wind Swath' shows higher numbers.

This bond should have been paid off on the community center unless the city refinanced it. It was a 20 year bond. Someone should call the business office and ask for John Metro whether this bond is finished.

Way back in the late 90s, my sons went to LCCS, which was then renting space in the recently demolished Boys and Girls Club. We were all might envious of this new space.


Yup. And while I guess there's been some community stuff in there, they were more interested in rent paying programs like St Anthonys to pay off the debt. I recall attending a 'planning ideas' meeting before it was built, and suggesting that they create storage space in the gym area for community theater to have flats for sets. A flat NO. Has there ever been community theater in there? And while I don't have the facts handy, most of what Yvonne says is true AFAIK. Schundler played fast and loose with the money to forward his charter agenda in a way pretty antithetical to the whole charter idea.


As I understand it, the issue was that the Community Development grants could not go to charter schools. Schundler circumvented that by funding the facilities, then letting the charter use them while calling them community centers, allowing a few after school activities from other groups, etc.
