Jersey Cats does great work. I've fostered cats for them and they are great to work with, and they seriously care about the forever homes where they place the cats.

Uber may not be a car service, but I'll take its imitation over the real thing any day.

As others have said, the JC cabs are laughably, disgustingly decrepit; half the time you get crammed alongside other fares whether you like it or not; and riding in one feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure, death-wish edition.

Uber has been a game changer for us.

You guys are something else.

Contrary to the opinions of the elitist, NYC wanna-be, Sixth Borough touting morons (mind you, few of those on here actually live in "luxury" areas, SMH), JC does have luxury buildings. Well, downtown JC at least.

Relative to the rest of JC, DTJC condos/luxury rentals have pools, gyms, health clubs, concierge services and significant other amenities which, according to every realtor out there (you know, the guys and gals who do this for a living), qualifies it as a "luxury" building.

According to some of your definitions, unless it has gold plated toilets and other nonsense, it can't possibly be luxury.

You just have to shake your head at the level of self-aggrandizing idiocy on here.

Just look at all the new buildings, restaurants, food trucks, and population growth - all of that is happening in the area right next to NYC - DTJC.

I can't afford luxury condo living in NYC so I'm living in the next best area..a luxury condo in dtjc, just like 90% of everyone else living in a luxury condo in dtjc and working in Manhattan.

When I think "luxury", I think of a line of black Mercedes SUVs waiting to whisk the buiding's residents to their offices...an apartment with separate maids quarters...a place that empties out on weekends because the residents are at their Hamptons homes. There ain't much of any of that in JC. So relax with the "luxury" thing?

+1 I can't even say the word luxury and Jersey City in the same sentence.

Watch out for the new scourge of the pedestrian plaza. Bicyclists. Those two wheeled animals and their bell ringing. Wont someone think of the children?


I was wondering if I was going to get any snide comments as I rode my bike through just above a snail's pace last night, sans bell. Luckily I escaped without a scolding or anyone trying to knock me to the ground with a "do-see-do hip check or clothesline."


I'm a Bike JC board member, and we haven't taken an official position on this yet, so this is just my personal opinion.

As I understand it, riding a bike is technically illegal within the pedestrian plaza (hence the name).

However, I suspect what will happen here is what tends to happen in NYC's makeshift/part-time pedestrian streets, e.g., Fulton Street in the Financial District:

When foot traffic is light or mostly just passing through, and there is lots of room in the street, a cyclist proceeding slowly, carefully and respectfully through will usually be tolerated pretty well by pedestrians and police. That’s what was happening during the evening rush last night, when I deliberately observed bike traffic for about half an hour. Nine out of 10 cyclists were just riding through the open spaces in the street, all keeping it mellow, and nobody seemed to mind. A few cyclists were also arriving at businesses within the plaza, and they generally rolled in a ways before dismounting. And actually, I didn’t see a single cyclist riding on the sidewalks(!), no doubt because suddenly none were afraid of being hit by cars.

But at peak times when (if) the street fills up with people just strolling, people sitting at outdoor tables, random piano players, etc., it will become annoying and dangerous to bike through, and most cyclists will get off and walk or will ride around the block. I know I will.

In other words, common sense will prevail.
Shocking, I know! But I’ve seen it happen. Personally I’d be satisfied with that outcome.


Agreed. And this is how I always navagate Grove plaza. It's not that complicated to tell when it's crowded or not.

Dude, I haven't hitched my wagon to any cause or sided with any position. I said before, none of us knows what happened so I'm not categorically assuming that it was Mike Brown's fault (and justified self-defense) nor that the officer is guilty. However, many of you are speak with such authority like you know and then interjecting but black crime!, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, horrible culture, he charged the officer, Tawana Brawley, Reverse Racism, The Black Panthers and whatever random irrelevant issue you can throw in there. It's pathetic.

Thanks for being candid! I aspire to Manhattan, but can't afford either Manhattan or dtjc, so I'm living in the Heights - and I'll admit, the only reason I moved here was out of a desire to own something reasonably close to Manhattan, where I work, all my friends live, etc. And, it is closer and less dire than the neighborhoods in the actual boroughs I looked in - Bushwick, Flatbush, the (ulp...) Bronx.

People who have lived in JC all their lives are certainly entitled to their opinions and their feelings about their hometown, but increasingly JC - like any city - is going to be defined more by the people who move there and remake the image of the city.

Want to Rent Your Vacant Lot?
#39
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I have a small pet care company that provides pack playdates to about 15 dogs per day. Lately it has become increasingly difficult to find dog runs that will allow my pack (about 6-7 dogs at a time) to run and play as needed. I completely understand that public dog parks are not for commercial use and private dog runs are for residents of the building only. So, as a solution, I am hoping to find a vacant lot, ideally one that is fenced in, that I could rent from the owner and use as a safe and private play yard. I would only need access to the lot from 11:00-4:00 M-F, and I am willing to clean it up if it is cluttered with debris, broken glass, etc. My company is fully insured and I would assume any and all responsibility for any damage. My packs are well behaved, I keep barking to a minimum, and I do not let them dig holes or be destructive. Mostly they just need space to wrestle and run around! Obviously, I would clean up all the poop as well . I know it's an odd request, but if you or anyone you know is sitting on a vacant lot that might fit the bill, you might as well make some money off it, right? PM me with any leads! Thank you in advance!

Competent server techs make quadruple that in this area. The benefits can't bridge that gap. Even the plumber entry is a joke. Helpers make more than that. A real plumber is at least triple that, IF the benefits are golden.

The only jobs with halfway decent ranges are the office and outside staff. The rest are in wishful thinking land. Actual real engineers or qualified tech workers will not work for that pittance.

I have been living in JC longer than some of you have been alive and I have seen the changes in JC, some positive and other negative. People here want to pretend the negative does not exist. If JC collected information from visitors I am sure they would say something similar to my comments. So why doesn't the city collect and publish some honest data from people who do visit the city?

I don't agree that people don't want an honest discussion - I think the real problem is that there is no agreement on what would make JC a better/the best mid-sized city; I don't even think there is agreement on what defines a great mid-sized city.

For instance - in assuming that visitors are offended by grafitti, noise, and the lack of parking, you are defining a particular urban experience. But is a city necessarily defined by how well it meets the expectations of suburbanites? Noise, the density, some degree of "grittiness", the desiribility of leaving your car behind - these go with older, former industrial cities in the Northeast USA.

Like any business, you need to evolve and change with the times, and give people a reason to use you instead of Uber or Lyft. Forcing Uber and Lyft out of business will only work temporarily for you - there will always be another company out there that offers something like this, in some places, Sidecar and Gett have emerged. It's too good of a product to not exist. Seems like the car service and taxi industries only want to fight and win battles, ignoring the big picture and ultimately losing the war.


A taxi medallion in Jersey City costs about one-hundred thousand dollars, and in New York City they’re at least a million. If you’re in the taxi business, you’re deep in the hole before you can pick up a single passenger. How do you compete with a business that is able to charge customers less because they avoid traditional licensing fees by taking advantage of an abstract concept? An app isn’t going to solve that problem.


I don't know what else to tell you. The cost of a medallion - which I assume you have to buy for both taxis and car services - isn't my or any other customer's problem. I didn't say an app would solve everything either, I said that the car services and taxi industries need to adapt and change with the times too. They seem to be reluctant to do so. Exactly what they need to do, I don't know, but lobbying government to shut down Uber and Lyft will not solve the problem in the long term anyway. This is a concept that people love and it isn't going away anytime soon.

As soon as Uber or any other service of that type is gone from the area thanks to your efforts, another service will sinply take its place. I assume you don't like gypsy cabs either but they continue to exist and when there's a problem, they are even harder to track than anyone who drives for Uber/Lyft/Sidecar/Gett.

Welcome to our capitalist society. Uber and Lyft seem to be working to provide something the customer wants, while the car service and taxi industry are simply fighting to keep things the same. I have no sympathy, regardless of how much you spent on a medallion.


This, exactly. I would also add that if the industry as a whole is SO IN THE HOLE from the cost of medallions and licensing, maybe they should invest all that money spent on lobbying and campaigning against Uber/Lyft in relief for its members.

Even when you factor in the "perks" of government jobs (job security, pensions and benefits) the salary being offered (for IT-related jobs) are not competitive, or comparable. The salaries listed are about half for the same job in the private sector.

White supremacy is the real culprit in Ferguson. The excuses just prove it
#49
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


White supremacy is the real culprit in Ferguson. The excuses just prove it.

We’ve had enough of the police brutality, of the colorblind mythologies and post-racial rhetoric, of the sweet-talk, of the calls for non-violence; of mass incarceration and systemic poverty, of trigger happy cops and crying black mothers, of the Eric Garners and Renisha McBrides, the Michael Browns and Tarika Wilsons; of black tears and white terror. Dr Martin Luther King Jr said in 1968: “A riot is the language of the unheard”. Today, nearly 50 years later, black America demands to not only be heard but heeded – by any means necessary.

This week in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been more backlash over the resistance of a few black (and some white) protestors than the violence of white police. Meanwhile, according to organizers on the ground, it has mainly been (white) outsiders inciting violence to promote their own agenda. As the writer Sarah Kendzior tweeted: “White people coming to STL to provoke police violence against black residents and get them blamed”. More than blamed: black people are left to bear the brunt of the political mess white infiltration leaves behind, be it by the National Guard or outside organizers.

As Sean Beale, a 27-year-old local, told the Guardian: “If you don’t live here you don’t worry about the burning and looting. You don’t worry about stores closing, or losing your job, or walking for miles to buy food.”

But to focus more on the people’s resistance than the police repression that created it – even as tensions cooled in the streets on Monday night – is to participate in the dehumanization and devaluing of black life. To ignore the elders rallying for the sake of our babies and young people peacefully protesting on behalf of our future while some (white) visitors instigate disarray is morally reprehensible. Beyond Ferguson, the pattern is clear. Blacks are always to blame, even as we are brutalized by police, ghettoized by neoliberal policies, and disenfranchised by a racist criminal (in)justice system.

But that’s the crux of white supremacist racial logic: the problem with black people is … well, black people – not mass incarceration and the deindustrialization of urban America, not educational inequality and generational poverty, not 400 years of slavery, lynchings, and Jim Crow. To be black in America is to be victimized and then made responsible for our victimization. We built this country. But, apparently, it is we who are lazy and dependent. We are bullied politically, socially and economically. But it is we who are called “thugs”.

“There is never an excuse for violence against police,” President Obama said. Yet there are endless excuses for state violence against black people. For mass incarceration, there’s the “war on drugs”. For poverty and unemployment, there’s “a culture of laziness” and “government dependence”. For the educational gap, there’s the burden of “acting white”. For Eric Garner: “loosies”. And for Michael Brown, there are stolen cigarillos, jaywalking or anything the police can say to shift the narrative from their white supremacist practices to black “ghetto” culture.

It is to say that black lives do not matter, that our babies deserve death and despair, that our communities don’t deserve protection and justice.

Obama needs post-racialism like Bush needed the “war on terror”: to camouflage our contradictions, to exercise global dominance vis-à-vis a (neo)liberal-democratic narrative, to lie to the world. But with the numbers of black bodies unemployed, incarcerated and extrajudicially executed, what are to we to do?

No one person knows.

But we must act collectively and courageously. Alongside the immediate arrest of Darren Wilson, we must demand the demilitarization of law enforcement as well as the decriminalization of the black body. In addition to the withdrawal of the curfew and National Guard, we must demand the withdrawal of apartheid police forces and local governments where a black majority is ruled by a white minority. We cannot depend on the same police force that killed Brown to liberate us. In Ferguson and across the nation we must push for the implementation of community-oriented police models that include prevention, problem-solving, citizen engagement and community partnerships. There needs to be a cop-watch program in every city across America with a high concentration of people of color.

Also, we must recognize that naming Wilson as the killer without naming white supremacy as the culprit fails to address the root of racialized police violence. We must recognize, as Malcolm X did, that police brutality is a human rights issue that will not be solved simply by the passing of legislation. Our rallies must spark revolutionary action. Our marching must evolve into a sustainable movement. We must see that this is bigger than Brown and Wilson, than Ferguson or New York City. This is about the value of black life in 21st-century America.

Largely symbolic, yes, but it's something. Hawaii's representatives to Congress were happy.

Also, Japanese-Americans who were rounded up and put in camps in the USA after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor were eligible to apply for compensation after World War II was over. Some got compensated, some didn't, some claims are still being settled, but it's a good example of personal responsibility for something that was wrong.

I doubt the looters are organized or intelligent enough to acknowledge any personal responsibility, if they are even intelligent enough to see the error of their ways, which I doubt.

Jersey City Incinerator Authority has new recycling program for household appliances, e-waste

Jersey City Incinerator Authority has new recycling program for household appliances, e-waste

By Wilson Conde|The Jersey Journal
August 20, 2014 at 10:26 AM

Jersey City residents now have the opportunity to recycle large household appliances and electronic equipment through the Jersey City Incinerator Authority's "White Goods and E-Waste" recycling programs.

The program allows residents to dispose of these white goods and/or e-waste products either by arranging a pick-up over the phone or by bringing the waste to be recycled in person to the JCIA’s headquarters, located at 501 Rt. 440.

Those who wish to arrange a pick-up by phone should call the JCIA at 201-435-4645, ext. 600, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Those who wish to deliver their waste in person to JCIA’s headquarters can do so Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents taking advantage of the program must provide proof of Jersey City residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill.

Some examples of white goods that will be accepted as part of this program include refrigerators, air conditioners, stoves, microwaves, hot water heaters, washing machines and dryers. Examples of e-waste that will be accepted include computers and computer equipment, TVs, VCRs/DVD players, stereos, radios, copiers, fax machines and scanners, as well as phones.

The reuse and/or recycling of these materials conserves natural resources, and reduces the pollution and greenhouse gas emissions that results from having to make new materials, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

“We’re concerned about ensuring the proper disposal of large household items and consumer electronics,” JCIA CEO Oren K. Dabney Sr. said in a press release. “That’s why we implemented these programs to increase the collection and responsible recycling of consumer goods. Together, with our residents, JCIA will continue to recycle our way to a cleaner, healthier environment.”
