Is there a 2x2 option instead of the 1x4 at the higher amounts?

Only time will tell. Being that most of these new establishments are restaurants that serve alcohol and not exclusively bars, hopefully that won't happen. Monty's might be the only place on Newark that I can picture being a potential bro-bar, but since it's never going to open it may not be that big a deal.

I highly recommend ALL CITY ROOFING.

They use superior materials, guarantee their work, and their price is reasonable.

Best of luck.

Re: Jersey City: Newark Avenue - Pedestrian Plaza

As some of the more recent comments point out, while the plaza will cause some inconvenience to people of limited mobility, pedestrian-friendly projects like this also tend to bring many benefits to the very same people: the most vulnerable residents, including seniors, people with disability, and children.

Some of those people do drive or get driven more often than able-bodied young adults. But some drive LESS because they physically can't, or because they can't afford a car on a small fixed income, or in the case of children, because parents can't constantly drop everything and drive them everywhere.

For these residents, pedestrian- and bike-friendly improvements are demonstrably beneficial.

If you've ever watched an elderly person, a person with a walker, or an uncertain child stand fearfully on the curb of a big, busy street, pressing the "beg button" to pretty-please ask the cars to let them cross, and then watched them limp or scurry across while the light blinked "DON'T WALK," you should realize that taming the motor monoculture that we've allowed to dominate our urban spaces will benefit them PLENTY.

They are not interested in NP so we can move on from that. They seem to like Green street and all its amenities including parking for about $800 less than Hoboken. Hopefully it all works out.

I am a lifetime resident of JC, and often disagree with many posters on this boad, but on this issue, I strongly agree with mist here.

Newark Avenue along that stretch was shit for traffic anyway. Between the assholes pulled up on the sidewalk, or parked on the eastbound side, and the double parking on the right, it was a nightmare to navigate safely. Then that right turn at Grove was very dangerous with shits making unsafe maneuvers around pedestrians and other cars to get one car length ahead. As a guy who rides a motorcycle, I cringed when I would go down that stretch of road, and would purposefully avoid it. The safety factor alone makes it a good idea. Those people being supposedly inconvenienced now were very often being very unsafe anyway.

I agree, if we were to limit the discussion to the boundries of Exchange place and Newport.

But although 70 Green is in Exchange Place, it is so close to PH and Grove , that I think I'd you'd rather live there if you're looking to go out to eat/drink at.

If you live dtjc then you really do not need a car if your life is going to NYC to work and NYC to play, but if you are one of the other 205k residents of the city you really don't want a car but you need it.

My parents are senior citizens and they just move to downtown Jersey City from the suburbs where they were car dependent. Here they can get everything they need without getting in their car. They can interact with people in the community and are not stuck in their house. They love walking around getting coffee and ice cream, it's one of the few activities they can still enjoy!

The pilot is extended through the fall because the Council did not act in enough time to get this rolling for the entire summer. The Council needs a minimum number of months to study

Btw i have a car and ride a bike. This midly inconviences me but overall it's a nice addition.


I guess some people here do not understand how difficult it is to have children, groceries, and other items you must carry. Unless you walk in someone's shoes, don't criticize.

I hate to see you being ganged-up on, Yvonne, and I'm sorry that such an important discussion is devolving into name calling. But I just can't support an urban planning policy that accepts JC continue to be so car dependent. The world is changing, and many of the most desirable urban areas around the world (and even in the US) are moving away from being so car-centric:
http://www.carfree.com/carfree_places_old.html

Now, I don't own a car and am proud to live 99% car free (rental cars for camping trips notwithsanding) but I'm 53 and lugging the groceries home, hitting the 100 steps after I've missed the last 87 bus, biking back up Newark Avenue after stuffing myself with b-b-q at Legal Beans, etc. are not getting any easier! But to insist on having a car in a densely populated urban area when there are other options is really selfish.

Heh. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who got the cheerful pleasant "Yes, Of course, I'll have them call you" followed by nothing. I called them back a lot more than 3 times in several months and each time I called I said "You told 3 months ago that they would call me right back" and then again, "You told me 4 months ago, 5 months ago, 6 months ago, 7 months ago, 8 months ago, 9 months 10 months ago, 11 months ago, and then Finally "I'm coming to your office in person to discuss the signed one year old contract and I'm going to call an attorney if you aren't on my porch roof within 2 weeks. One week and half later they showed up and were here 2 hours....I'm getting mad again thinking about it. And she was so sweet as pie on the phone! I think she must have been enjoying it on some level. Does anyone recommend anyone besides Capital?

I was told it was going to be a women's health center run by JCMC, but that sounded far-fetched to me


DelForno put up a HUGE yellow banner that I noticed this morning (sorry, no pic). Apartments with ground floor retail.

But speaking of the pediatric dentistry place at 139 Newark Ave - anyone have any idea why it hasn't opened? I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the building looks kinda cockeyed when you look at it from Christopher Columbus.

Re: Historic Downtown Jersey City and Hoboken are locked in battle for most outstanding downtown
#45

It's true that "downtown" JC has a stronger identity, in terms of more of a sense of place, and knowing when you are "there", and IMO more interesting and diverse streetscapes. Hoboken is all downtown just going by how built-up it is, although east of Willow Avenue and south of SIT, there are more older buildings and the historic hotel and business district.

Alas, I have to vote for Hoboken as a practical matter - living in the Heights I can easily walk to downtown Hoboken (or bike, and avail myself of the elevator at the 9th Street HBLR on the return trip).

So yeah, some people are being inconvenienced, and that sucks. But that doesn't mean the changes shouldn't have occurred. Cities change all the time and that's one thing urban residents have always dealt with. You don't get to keep a city exactly how you want it just because it's most convenient for you.

Newark Ave is public property, and as such, no private citizen has a rightful claim to it. If you want to be able to drive up to your residence, you might need to move farther from downtown. This is just one con among many pros.

These abatements promise to hire local people the "reason" for granting abatements going back the 1990s. If they are not hiring local people then they are violating the agreements. Under Fulop, the first 6 abatements (Salem Lafayette, 25 Senate Place, Mana Arts, KRE-Journal Square, 65 Bay Street, and 360 Ninth St, those agreements promised over 2,100 jobs. These abatement agreements make exaggerated claims in terms of jobs but the city never holds the developer accountable. My figures come from the ordinances.

Just saying I don't want my front porch accessible from the street, nor do I want anyone just thinking that it's a hangout.

I simply asked them to leave. They weren't even embarrassed and continued to talk on their cell phone like I wasn't even there. Time to fence up the front.

Benefits union workers at the expense of the construction business lobby? I don't see any problem in that.

Re: Johnston Ave Pool Open!

I haven't gone swimming in the pool, but I went in to take a look. It looks pretty nice to me. I swim at a community rec center where I work in the city, WV, and the Pershing Field locker rooms and pool are nicer and cleaner. The pool itself is huge compared to the rec pool in the city. During the weekends they have enough space to have 3 wide swimming lanes open, and dedicate the rest of the pool to open swim. I don't think the open swim disturbs the swimming lanes much.

The park itself has always felt safe to me, but I always go during daylight, haven't been there at night. However, don't think it would be much different at night.

I also have had a very bad experience with trying to get a price from Capitol. They came, measured, and were pleasant, then crickets. I tried calling 3 times over 2 months, and was always promised I would get a call back, nothing. Finally they admitted that they thought for some reason, in error, I wanted a repair rather than replace, a job they were not interested in, but simply wouldn't even call me to tell me so. That's extremely rude and unprofessional. It's fortunate I was not in an emergency situation.

User - that fence looks awesome. Great style to match the brick facade.

Championsound - wth?? Strangers on the porch? I can't imagine how I would even dare to do something like that. How did you get rid of them? Did they have the grace to look embarrassed?

Maybe you should boobytrap the seats with itchy powder and fart bombs.
