Actually, nicky, the Jersey Journal are not posting the snarky comments people are making similar to your snarky remarks. The paper is posting my "letter to the editor" which is on their website. I use a real name not a phony to post my comments. They are trying to get rid of people like you.

The straw that broke the opinion censor's back was the disappearance of the poor little girl Dulce Alvarez in South Jersey. When they shut down the comments to that story, people would post their comments in other comment sections. People did not believe the narrative spun by the teenage mother nor the way the story was being covered.

I am frankly surprised the NYT still has a comments section.

Hi everyone!

This Thursday, Feb. 20th at 6:30 p.m., there will be a Zoning Board meeting held at City Hall reviewing the proposal of the warehouse on 107 New York Ave. In October, there was a meeting to oppose the plans of the 18-story apartment building. Now, it is at 6 stories, which I think is still too high for our low-rise community. I know people have responsibilities and things more important going on, but a building like this that goes unchecked can have a lot of negative effects. By speaking directly to the Board, our public opinions can sway their vote of approval.

The hearing was scheduled for Feb. 6th, but was postponed to the 20th. Attached is the notice of the initial hearing my household received from the client's lawyer. The plans are available for public viewing as seen in the letter. Their list of requests prove they refuse to adhere to the neighborhood's zoning rules unless people speak up and oppose them.

Please consider going to the meeting! Public opinions are important to the development of these types of plans. If an apartment building were to go up, it should benefit our community, not inhibit it.

I hope to see you there!


What garbage. We have an affordable housing crisis and climate change that necessitates as much density as possible and these idiot NIMBYs do everything possible to stop it. Not only that, it would add to the ratable tax base too. The only thing acceptable to these morons would be a Bayonne box with a driveway cutout.




A Bayonne box with a driveway cutout would not benefit global warming or the housing crisis. Neither will a 75 unit, 75 parking space building.

AEG Live set to take over Loew's in Jersey City

Posted Jun 26, 2014
By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

AEG Live, one of the globe's largest concert promoters, is set to win a contract to take over management of the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, and the firm pledges to bring "top talent" to the Journal Square theater.

A city official said AEG offered "far and away" the largest bid to run the venue, saying it would pay $350,000 annually to rent the city-owned theater for 30 years and contribute $3.5 million toward renovation of the 85-year-old former movie palace.

Mark Shulman, AEG's vice president and general manager, said the firm hopes to make the Loew's "a hub for the entire area." Programming should begin in late 2015, after renovations are complete, according to Schulman.

AEG, which will partner with New Jersey City University and Mana Contemporary to offer 40 community events annually, was competing with Live Nation, Ace Theatrical Group and local firm Catch a Rising Star.

What a sad state of affairs, but not at all unexpected. I'll just quote myself below...

In any case, I know the FoL mean well, but they are NOT up to the task. Another year wasted with nothing to show for it. Really, when you think about it, Jersey City is a city of unrealized potential everywhere you look: it's not just this theater, but the Powerhouse (a crumbling facade is all that is left) is another example of so much potential that has gone unrealized. Add the pedestrian plaza (a restaurant row is great, but that plaza should be completely car-free and much more vibrant with a strong retail presence) and the DTJC waterfront (which is, sadly, mostly a no man's land on weekends, with next to nothing there to attract crowds or visitors, save for the occasional Summer event) to the list of unrealized potential. Heck, even the much vaunted LSP could also be much more.

It's all very sad and disappointing because, in the end, a lot of that unrealized potential is the result of people who mean well, or have honest to goodness intentions, but they just don't realize that their provincial way of thinking is actually holding back progress.

At some point, the City administration will have to step in and step up and just take more control over some of these matters. For now, so much around here seems hostage to the whims of local groups, NAs, NIMBYs and other groups who reject and oppose anything that involves change.

It's sad that we have to wait another year before we can see real progress in the Loews saga. The FoL is a JOKE. Another 5 years wasted with little or no progress. We could have had something by now, but instead are stuck with a theater that continues to be in disrepair and that will likely cost much more to renovate in 2020 than it would have cost if work had started in 2014.

They [FoL] mean well, but they have shown (over and over!) that they are amateurs and not up to the task of getting the restoration or renovation completed.

I guess since I asked the question, I should answer it.

According to an article, on the Jersey City Times website, the FOL’s lease ends at the end of the month. The city will again begin looking for a vendor to renovate, and then operate the theater. I assume the previous agreement with Live Nation is no longer valid.

Two 28-story towers to rise above Jersey City’s Bergen Arches: report

report.html


I have been hoping for a project like this. My wish though was to be higher density allowed in return for extending the light rail through the Bergen Arches, integrating a station(s) into the project.

There is an available unused rail right of way that could extend the line from Hoboken.

Two 28-story towers to rise above Jersey City’s Bergen Arches: report

Updated 2:13 PM; Today 2:05 PM (2/23/2010)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

A developer has received approvals to build two 28-story towers above the historic Bergen Arches in Jersey City, according to a published report.

The project is being called Bergen Arch Towers, and the plans call 524 apartment units, as well as office and retail space in both towers, NewYorkYimby.com reported. The proposal also calls for a 5,900-square-foot plaza between the buildings on Hoboken Avenue just west of Central Avenue.

Uninspired and looks incredibly dated. Like something considered modern in the late 70s, early 80s. Lots of similar looking buildings from around that time all over the world. Very disappointing design, really.
