There should be more unmarked police cars out there to catch this kind of scum of Jersey City daily.
That area of Jewett & Bergen, Lex & Bergen, Dwight & Bergen should be raided EVERYDAY!!!

Don't count your chickens before they hatch! The matter still needs to be voted on by the Council. This could be a ploy by Healy to be able to claim that he was opposed to the idea but was overruled by the Council.

Regardless of the outcome, the newly-stated rationale for approving the modified abatement is laughable, at best.

Hey, I wouldnt consider this a murder, it would of been great if they both killed each other. They were 2 drug dealers!!! Scum of the city anyway & since they both didnt die, at least we have 1 less drug dealer in this city!
I could see if there was a innocent bystander involved who got hurt but #OOPS# them both & maybe the next 1 will catch it next time.
Ill be glad when the city is finally cleaned up of the drugs, that day will never come with Healy in office but we can hope for the best.
We all need to report illegal drug activity so that will cut it down a little bit & every little bit counts!!!

This show reminded me of the HBO series "The Wire", which was the best show ever. Right down to the CompStat meetings. I have a lot of admiration for Cory Booker. His passion and enthusiasm are impressive. But that only goes so far. Newark is an interesting work in progress. I believe what is good for Newark is good for New Jersey, so I am hoping for the best. Looking forward to the rest of the shows.

But it DID set a precedent and now the city has stated in writing that the criteria for lowering PILOT payments is based on distance from the lightrail (is that the best you could come up with?). That Crystal Point decision will be a great boon to the real estate law profession. BTW - I'm about a half mile from the lightrail, a remote area accessible only on horseback, I'm going to appeal my property taxes.

wouldn't a Wayne Street specific cop just have people from other blocks wanting their own street specific cop. I can see my neighbors wanting their own cop to stop the brawls that spill out onto the street at least twice a month from the bar across the street. Yesterday's "demonstration" was a good opportunity, but I'm not sure anything came from it. As I proposed earlier here, the meeting with police brass should have been held inside Ramos Park.

Re: Poor service from USPS package carrier in Van Vorst Park
Home away from home
Home away from home


Well, this topic has been discussed ad nauseum, but it is simply mind boggling that the US Postal Service is SO deficient in JC. The USPS is arguably the best postal service in the WHOLE world. We pay next to nothing to send letters and ship packages, and the turnaround times are simply outstanding. Yet, sending mail (as well as its delivery) in JC is simply a crapshoot.

We have friends who lose packages on a regular basis. We have had mail delivered very late on occasion. We NEVER get package slips delivered until we get one stating LAST ATTEMPT with a return to sender date that is usually the next day. We have complained on many occasions and nothing has improved. Our building has a small mail dropbox that may, or may not, get picked up by whoever is delivering the mail that day. AND, to top it all off, the mail carrier shows up anywhere between 4:00 and 5:30 PM. We get never get timely delivery of mail.

Yeah, even the USPS sucks here in JC...

Some people don't have cable and can't watch Nurse Jackie. Networks always try re-creating versions of successful cable shows - they water them down for prime time and get the viewers who don't have cable. It happens all the time. It's the nature of the networks.

Re: Holland Tunnel tube reopens after diabetic shock driver slams into four cars in Jersey City
Home away from home
Home away from home


If you have seizures of diabetes, the concept of doctor-patient confidentiality is no longer relevant. They report you to the government and you lose your license. (this does not apply to old age despite the stronger statistical correlation and the ease with which the DMV has to determine your age).

Confidentiality really is no longer relevant at all - my doctor can report me to my insurance company due to a high (but in the safe range) test result as being an undue risk, thus in the long-term destroying my life. Thanks. (Yes the doctor reported raw data that was not necessary to reveal as it was already interpreted by the doctor, a lab never was involved). It's made me wonder ever since - being an indentured servant for health insurance due to preexisting condition risk of a condition that may never exist gave me time to think - whether things like negative STD results could be considered a risk factor. Surely that means you had something to worry about, so why should the insurance company not worry. I know negative heart tests can be considered positive by the insurance company for preexisting condition rules.

But it's interesting that this person still had his license, while there are others with the same condition who have it taken away. I assume he had seen a doctor previously, as the police wouldn't assume diabetic shock nor would the driver get this bad and not have been experiencing symptoms for some time beforehand. Or worse, he knew of the lack of confidentiality laws and refused to get treatment that would have prevented this.

We see a disproportionate portion of such afflicted people in this region as it's the only part of the country where you can live a normal life without being able to drive. 75% of the population of the country would starve to death without the ability to drive. (well subtracting many for having family that would take care of them.)

It seems that it's much better off to make sure you are always scamming the medical system (back), no matter how big your problems are. Well until you crash into four cars in a tunnel.

Re: thoughts on 61 grad street - grand view
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


The Grandview doesn't really have any significant amenities (small cardio room in the basement and a fairly small backyard for parties and grilling), but that's why the condo fee is only $225 per month. It all depends what you're looking for. The other condo buildings all have more amenities, but you're paying through the nose for them whether you use them or not. Most condo fees in the "luxury" buildings have fees of $600 and up from what I've seen. The really decked out buildings like Trump, Beacon, 77 Hudson, etc. will be closer to $850 per month in fees for a 1BR. Since it's not principal, and it can't be deducted from your income, this is just money burned if you're not constantly using the amenities. Also, during times like this when the buildings are not fully occupied, the condo fees are always at risk of being raised significantly since fewer owners are now carrying the financial burden. Just something to think about.

Medical Drama "Mercy" Begins Tonight on NBC

23-Sep-2009
Written by: Pahull Bains

NBC’s latest medical offering “Mercy” about three nurses, premieres tonight at 8/7c.

The medical drama “Mercy”, premiering tonight, follows a group of Jersey City nurses whose messy private lives are interrupted regularly by their thankless jobs. The doctors on the show are either arrogant or incompetent, and waste no time in telling the nurses that they’re good for nothing.

Taylor Schilling plays protagonist Veronica Callahan, back from a tour of duty in Iraq, and estranged from her feckless husband, Mike (Diego Klattenhoff), because he cheated on her while she was overseas. During that time, she herself was hardly faithful, and falls in love with Dr. Chris Sands (James Tupper), who then conveniently gets hired as a new doctor at the hospital just as she returns. Not only does she have to figure out the messy love triangle, but she is also suffering from PTSD as a result of her stint as a war nurse.

Veronica’s best friend Sonia (Jaime Lee Kirchner) is the tough-talking sex kitten, who just wants to find herself a rich husband. Novice nurse Chloe (Michelle Trachtenberg) is earnest, awkward and naïve. There is also a gay nurse thrown in for good measure, who goes by the name Angel.

The premise is that nurses are the poor ‘behind-the-scenes’ stars who never get noticed for all their hard work. In this show, it seems the entire hospital consists of over-qualified nurses and inept doctors. Not only do the doctors constantly chew the nurses out, but the patients do as well.

Haughty patient: "Nurses! What are you good for anyway?"
Nurse Veronica: "Well, we do try to keep the doctors from killing you."

I guess we can expect a lot of these throughout the show.

============================

Resized Image
Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” ended its first season Monday night. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch it again this fall on NBC under another name, “Mercy.”

I’ve been seeing the TV spots for the new fall show, and after watching the entire season of “Nurse Jackie,” I’m shocked at all the similarities between the two shows. Even if it was one great big coincidence, someone should’ve picked up on them and re-shot some scenes for “Mercy.”

Here’s a breakdown of the similarities (”Nurse Jackie/”Mercy”):

1. Nurse Jackie (Edie Falco) is a nurse with an attitude/Nurse Veronica (Taylor Schilling) is a nurse with an attitude.

2. Jackie is married and having an affair/Veronica is married and might have an affair.

3. Merritt Weaver plays a bubbly new nurse named Zoey with kitty cats on her scrubs. She almost kills a man by overdosing him/Michelle Trachtenberg plays a bubbly new nurse named Chloe with teddy bears on her scrubs. She almost kills a man by overdosing him

4. Peter Facnielli plays a young doctor who clearly isn’t ready for life in the E.R./An actor not listed on imdb.com plays a young doctor who clearly isn’t ready for life in the E.R.

5. Haaz Sleiman is a rough-looking guy who plays a gay nurse/Guillermo Diaz is a rough-looking guy who plays a gay nurse

It’s insane! I mean, Zoey and Chloe? Come on. The only difference I can see so far is Veronica doesn’t seem to be addicted to pain killers like Nurse Jackie is. That’s probably too edgy for NBC. Of course “Mercy” hasn’t even premiered yet. Who knows what else will be like “Nurse Jackie.”

THE GO-TO PLACE FOR SERVICES: New city services at the HUB shopping plaza on MLK Drive

THE GO-TO PLACE FOR SERVICES

Wednesday, September 23, 2009
By AMY SARA CLARK
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Jersey City officials cut the ribbon yesterday on three new city services at the HUB shopping plaza on Martin Luther King Drive.

The divisions of Community Development, Tenant/Landlord Relations and Housing Code Enforcement have moved into satellite offices at the Department of Housing, Economic Development and Commerce annex at 360 Martin Luther King Drive.

In addition, a representative from the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission will be at the annex Tuesdays and Thursdays to help people arrange sewer connections, officials said.

"People in Ward A and Ward F will not have to go to 30 Montgomery St. and try to find parking," Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy said at the ceremony. "They can get the services they need in their community."

Ward F Councilwoman Viola Richardson pointed out an added benefit.

"It will also bring more people to the HUB," she said. "For me it's a win-win situation."

Other officials at yesterday's ribbon-cutting included councilmen Michael Sottolano and Peter Brennan, as well as HEDC Executive Director Carl Czaplicki.

The Division of Community Development helps residents and organizations access programs such as Community Development Block Grants, the Homeowner Rebate Program, and the First Time Homebuyers Program.

The Division of Tenant/Landlord Relations advises tenants about their rights and mediates disputes.

Tenants can go to the Housing Code Enforcement Division for such issues as heat and hot water problems, abandoned buildings and illegal apartments.

An employee from Tenant/Landlord Relations and Housing Code Enforcement will be at the annex on Mondays and Fridays, Community Development will send a representative on Wednesdays.

For more information, call (201) 547-5070.

HEALY: NO DEAL -- 77 Hudson asks to alter abatement

Wednesday, September 23, 2009
By AMY SARA CLARK
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy might be sending developers a message: Crystal Point did not set a precedent.

In June, Fisher Development Associates, the builder of the 269-unit condo complex at 2 Second St., came to the city and asked for a better tax abatement deal - and got it.

But K. Hovnanian, owner of 420-unit luxury condo building 77 Hudson, might not be so lucky.

Even though 77 Hudson asked for the identical deal the city gave Crystal Point, Healy shot off a letter to the developer Monday saying the city plans to stand pat with its original 20-year abatement agreement, which guarantees the city payments of 16 percent of the project's gross income per year.

In his letter to 77 Hudson officials, Healy stated "the award or modification of tax abatements is not a matter of right" and the fact that the building is already completed means that the justification for the tax abatement "is absent."

Crystal Point is nearly complete, but Healy says he recommended approval of that building's request because it is "in an area that is clearly more remote than 77 Hudson."

Crystal Point is about three blocks from a Light Rail stop, while 77 Hudson is across the street from one. The buildings are roughly the same distance from the Exchange Place PATH station.

Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop said he doesn't buy the mayor's explanation, saying the rejection was less about location than timing.

"Two months ago, he supported Crystal Point's abatement deal," Fulop said. "I think any reasonable person would say that if he supported the same situation weeks before the arrests and subsequent to that his position changed - it makes one doubt further the legitimacy of the Crystal Point approval."

Several Jersey City municipal employees, including Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini and City Council President Mariano Vega Jr. were arrested July 23 as part of a massive FBI investigation into corruption.

Crystal Point's adjusted tax deal extended the length of the abatement from 20 to 30 years, and reduced the percentage of annual gross revenue paid the city to 11 percent for the first five years, 13 percent payments for the next five years, and 16 percent for the final 20 years.

According to Eugene Paolino, the attorney for 77 Hudson, his building asked for the same agreement in order "to level the competitive playing field."

He said yesterday he had just found out about the mayor's rejection of the application and wasn't prepared to comment.

The City Council has to vote on this matter. It's unlikely, but the council could vote as early as tonight.

The City Council meets tonight at 6 at City Hall, 280 Grove St.

Bergen Lafayette: Gun, drug charges take teen off street

Gun, drug charges take teen off street

Wednesday, September 23, 2009
By MICHAELANGELO CONTE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

A 19-year-old Jersey City man who apparently fired a shot while being chased by police yesterday was soon arrested on multiple weapons charges and police found he was carrying suspected cocaine and heroin, officials said.

Travis Defoe, of Bergen and Jewett avenues, was arrested on Lexington Avenue and additionally charged with resisting arrest and drug counts, including possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school and within 500 feet of public property, reports said.

At about 11 a.m. officers scouring the area of Communipaw and Bergen avenues on a report of a man with a gun spotted Defoe clutching the left side of his sweat pants as though holding an object, reports said. When Defoe kneeled to tie the laces of his sneaker an officer got out of an unmarked car with his gun drawn and Defoe started running, reports said.

Defoe apparently had not finished tying his shoe.

With police chasing, Defoe jumped a fence on Lexington Avenue and his shoe remained on top of the fence, reports said, adding that police then heard a gunshot as he ran behind a building.

Numerous officers converged on the area and two cops searching a residence found a man sitting in a hallway wearing only one sneaker, reports said, adding he was later identified as Defoe.

After his arrest, police found Defoe was carrying 24 vials of suspected cocaine and 17 glassine bags containing suspected heroin with the logo "Frank Lucas," reports said.

Officers found the handgun on the first-floor roof of a nearby building and the spent shell in a backyard, reports said.

Defoe was booked and transported to Hudson County jail in Kearny.

Bust untaxed cigs ring, investigation began in Jersey City

Bust untaxed cigs ring that cost Jersey $1M

Wednesday, September 23, 2009
By MICHAELANGELO CONTE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

As a result of an investigation that began in Jersey City, more than $100,000 worth of cigarettes and nearly $280,000 in cash was seized in a crackdown on a ring that forged the tax stamps on cigarette packs to avoid paying New Jersey's $2.70 tax on each pack, officials said.

Based on the scale of the enterprise, it is thought the state may have lost more than $1 million in tax revenue due to the criminal enterprise, said Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio.

This type of operation "generates a tremendous profit for the defendants and of course is taking money from the citizens of New Jersey," said DeFazio, whose office conducted the investigation with the New Jersey departments of Homeland Security and Treasury.

"This money would have gone into the treasury of the state and it is diverted instead to the pockets of these defendants."

Investigators believe the group regularly bought large quantities of untaxed cigarettes in other states at significantly lower prices than in New Jersey and transported them to a storage facility in Linden, DeFazio said.

They opened each carton and affixed a forged New Jersey or New York tax stamp to each pack before reloading the cartons and selling them at bargain prices to stores in northern New Jersey and New York, DeFazio said.

During searches last week, investigators also seized thousands of counterfeit tax stamps, DeFazio said, adding that a clothing iron was apparently used to affix the stamps to packs of cigarettes.

On Thursday, investigators arrested Elizabeth residents Rajae Awad, 39; Anwar Ghani, 46; and Jamal Abbadi a.k.a. Jamal Alyazjeen, 40; as well as Ahmad Aldabesheh, 48, of Mohegan Lake, N.Y., DeFazio said. They were charged with theft by deception, forgery and conspiracy and face up to 10 years in prison if convicted, DeFazio said

DeFazio said those arrested are all natives of Jordan and said, "There is evidence that at least some of the money generated was forwarded to Jordan, but there is no reason to think it went to any sort of terrorist activity." The Jordan connection is the reason the state Department of Homeland Security joined the probe.

The investigation began months ago when officials got a tip that cigarettes with counterfeit tax stamps were being sold in Jersey City stores, DeFazio said. Surveillance in Jersey City led to the Linden storage facility, and to surveillance there and at other locations, DeFazio said.

Investigators believe a large portion of the cigarettes were purchased in North Carolina and detectives traveled there this weekend and recovered records at a storage facility believed to have been a staging site for the ring, DeFazio said.

Stores that were visited by the State Division of Taxation and found with the cigarettes could face administrative penalties, said DeFazio.

After living here for a number of years, I've decided to think of it as a pleasant surprise when a package is actually delivered, which happens with maybe 1 out of 10 packages, or a slip is left, maybe 2 out of 5. I get confirmation numbers for everything and pick them up at the post office. I got a slip today, actually, despite having been home all day, and will be going to pick up a package tomorrow. Not such a big deal really, the post office is a cool building, not far away, and they don't make you wait in the main line to pick up packages.

The walkway will connect around the marina, west from Morris Street, South along Marin, west along whatever new road is built in Liberty Harbor North, South along Jersey, and then into the park. There will not be a bridge over the canal.


ummm... unless you are more in tune with all of the property owners, NJDEP, LSP, and the various other groups actually associated with this, i'm not sure how you can say something like this with such conviction.

Granted, that is a "straight lines" assumption to follow natural boundaries, but I am pretty sure there is nothing at all decided in any way, shape or form in relation to this stretch of the walkway other than the conceptual plans that have been brought to bear by the Jersey City Waterfront Parks Conservancy (jcwpc.org) and another concept (for the Colgate clock area only) by NJDEP.


By law, any development along the Hudson River must construct and maintain a walkway within in the 30 feet between the water and land. As Liberty Harbor North has plans to build out to the waterfront, unless the law changes, the property development will be required by law to build the walkway along those designated points. Public access points are also stipulated.

From the NJDEP:

"Under the Coastal Zone Management rules, each new development or redevelopment project in the area is required to construct and maintain a segment of the Walkway “coincident with the shoreline of the development” according to established design guidelines and standards. The rules require that 24-hour public access be provided for recreational use of the walkway."

So if by "in tune with all the property owners" you actually mean "know how to read," then yes, I guess I am.

Take the money that would be spent on a booth and hire a real live honest, sober, semi proactive police officer to just walk up and down that block on Wayne Street. Quite frankly right now it looks like the police are protecting the criminals from the residents.
