I use Luigi's on Fairmont just off of Grand St.
Cheap, reliable and fast.

Or there is that place on Erie near 3rd or 4th.

With Fulop's abstention, I bet this vote goes 8-0 in favor.

Neighbor who saw it said they took two out in cuffs.

The guy who owns the place has been picked up before for this, but not sure if he was the perp again last night.

Makes sense. It's a shame though.

In related news, part of the Husdon walkway in Sinatra Park just crumbled into the river...

There may be 885 cops but no more than half or less actually patrol the streets. The brass, those in specific units like emergency, narcotics don't patrol. Then there are those cops who are on sick leave, suspension or work at desk jobs in headquarters or elsewhere. They don't patrol. The same standard pap is served up at these community meetings. Cops do well on their salaries, at least $50,000 after a few years plus bennies. And let's not forget the off-duty jobs where they stand around doing nada & can double their salary. If we tell them where the crime is should'nt we get paid instead of them? I think so.
And by the way where's the bikes? Those who know will understand.

Here in Harsimus Cove, the location people have left a couple notices on our door and others on our street asking permission to use us for exteriors/interiors. So, I'd say they're making a real effort to make it "local".

Flattering,... but we politely decline.

They shoot here for locations other than the hospital. The hospital set is the former St. Mary's Hospital in Passaic. I just worked there on commercial and they were prepping their sets for the following days shoot.

They're most definitely filming in the area -- and the hospital set is a former actual hospital elsewhere in NJ.

A couple years ago I spent a few weeks in a set of BBC offices in London that double as the set for one of their hospital dramas. It was incredibly strange. The hallways were full of signs directing you to hospital wards that didn't exist, and the cafeteria was full of people in scrubs who weren't actually medical professionals -- but you'd open a door and the room inside was set up for employee training!

Mercy was in development long before the premier of Jackie, but it often happens in Hollywood there are 2 or 3 similar projects in the pipeline. It ends up being a game of chicken, since any project has a low chance of even making a pilot, never mind being filmed or picked up as a series.

Film history is cluttered with "clusters" of similar movies. Dangerous Liaisons & Valmont. Freaky Friday & Switched. There was an article in todays Times about the glut of "cougar" TV shows.

This definitely needs improvement. About 35+ cops per 10,000 residents in Jersey City. NYC is about 50, Newark is about 54. Hoboken has 44.

What's holding up that "more cops on the beat" promise?

This is an old report, but it should be pretty accurate for % cops per capita. http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/pub/pdf/lema001a.pdf


Very good point...many municipalities count their parking authority/traffic enforcement units as officers so the numbers can be a little skewed sometimes. But given Jersey City's situation and potential, increasing the amount of trained police would be a good investment. You don't need to be a genius to figure out our public officials are wasting money instead of spending it on things like public safety. What can de done? Maybe I'm new enough not to be apathetic like so many others....So often I get the response "....well thats Jersey City" Its so frustrating. With this city's location it could be an absolute boomtown for businesses that find Manhattan too expensive.

Maybe so (to an extent), but "Crystal Point is in a remote area" seems a bit disingenuous, no? Couldn't he come up with something that isn't quite so absurd?

"JC Official 3" up for re-appointment as city director
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Czaplicki up for reappointment tonight

[from PolitickerNJ.com, September 23, 2009, 11:12 a.m.]

Jersey City Councilman Steve Fulop says he will abstain on the council’s vote to reappoint Carl Czaplicki as the director of the Department of Housing, Economic Development and Commerce.

Czaplicki, who was Mayor Jerramiah Healy’s chief of staff before taking on his current position, appears in the federal corruption complaint against political consultant Joseph Cardwell as “JC Official 3.”

“I don’t think I can vote yes at this time until the situation is cleared,” said Fulop, who thinks that Czaplicki should be left on in an acting capacity. “There is a cloud looming here, so I think the mayor/council should leave him as is until the situation is cleared further. There is no reason for the mayor to endorse or reject him today in light of the recent events until there is more info.”

Czaplicki has not been charged, but was a close political ally of Cardwell’s and figures prominently in the corruption complaint against him. In it, Cardwell claims to be the middleman between Czaplicki and the FBI's cooperating witness, Solomon Dwek.

Czaplicki met with Dwek (“CW”), who was posing as a developer, at a Jersey City restaurant. According to the complaint, Dwek asked Czaplicki for help securing approvals for a fictitious development project.

According to the complaint, “In response, JC Official 3 told the CW that JC Official 3 could offer the CW advice and only wanted what was good for Jersey City. JC Official 3 further added that if he could ‘fast track’ matters, then he would do so.”

Later, Dwek attempted to hand Czaplicki an envelope stuffed with $10,000 in cash but was rebuffed.

“JC Official 3 then told the CW that he did not do that, and that the CW should deal with defendant Cardwell, who knew both JC Official 3 and the mayor. JC official 3 told the CW that there would be events and tickets and that defendant Cardwell knew the ‘playing field.’”

Despite Czaplicki’s appearance in the federal complaint, Healy (who appears in a different federal corruption complaint as “JC Official 4” and who has been visited by the FBI since the July corruption busts), had no second thoughts about reappointing him.

“Based on [Healy’s] reading of the complaint, it appears that JC Official 3 did nothing untoward or illegal,” said city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill.

Czaplicki’s reappointment is not expected to meet with much resistance in the council. Ward B Councilman Phil Kenny told PolitickerNJ.com that he does not have an issue with Czaplicki. At-large Councilman Peter Brennan said that if Czaplicki had done anything wrong the feds would have arrested him.

“I’m not going to put any guilt on someone when there’s nothing there. Fulop will put guilt on someone to get his name in the paper,” he said.

Council President Mariano Vega was arrested in the same sweep that took down Cardwell and many other Jersey City employees and political figures.

Czaplicki is one of seven agency heads who are up for reappointment tonight. The others are Business Administrator Brian O’Reilly, Fire Director Armando Roman, Police Director Samuel Jefferson, Health and Human Services Director Harry Melendez, Corporation Counsel Bill Matsikoudis and Recreation Director Joseph Macchi. Public Works Acting Director John Yurchak is expected to continue in an acting capacity.

I agree. Khov will get what they want in the end. Perhaps Healy's team is working on setting up foreign bank accounts.

Re: NJ transit to build pedestrian bridge from Hoboken to Newport
Home away from home
Home away from home


Clermont Cove, built in 1986 - 1988, slipped in before the laws creating the walkway were solidified.

From the New York Times, Sept 1987

"Indeed, the earliest projects to go forward on the waterfront found ways to avoid the state's requirements and either did not leave room for a walkway or did so only grudgingly."

Such is no longer the case with waterfront development along the river. The only thing that will now change the direction of the walkway is either not building within 100 feet of the water -- unlikely to say the least -- or changing the waterline by expanding it or filling it in, neither likely given the environmental regulations surrounding the waterline now in place.

They said there were a lot of retirements a few years ago and the standards are harder now. Per class of 25 only 16 get through. I'm guessing it's not that attractive to become a cop in JC either. I looked into about 10 years ago and was totally turned off by the pay. I'm just saying, maybe if we paid them more, it would attract more candidates. Same with teachers and fire...
