I lived in Union City for a short while, and for a tightly-packed low-rent town it always seemed to just "work" somehow. never trash-ridden. street lights and stop signs where you'd expect them. new - safe - light rail station, a gorgeous new indoor municipal pool. about as multi-culti a place as I've seen, and everyone generally getting along. Mayor Stack was (and hopefully still is) an example of what a Hudson County leader can actually accomplish.

As per the wikipedia article, the Newport/Pavonia PATH station opened on August 2nd 1909. So it completed a 100 years 2 days ago. Wow!

Thanks for posting those links. I use this station everyday but had never thought to look it up before.

So yes, I'm for welfare, but unless you're disabled it should be limited to 6 months. If that's ample enough time for unemployment benefits to run out, it should be just as sufficient for welfare.


Just FYI -- those who meet the eligibility requirements can now collect Unemployment Benefits for 79 weeks in New Jersey. That includes 26 weeks on the initial claim, and another 53 weeks in extensions.


Just as an FYI to you - this is temporary and is based on the current economic situation. The norm for collecting unemployment is 6 months.


"Temporary"? The first tier of Unemployment Benefit extensions currently in effect was enacted for claims effective May 7, 2006 -- followed by two more tiers put in place afterward, and a fourth tier now under discussion for enactment when Congress returns from recess in September.

So the "current unemployment situation" has been running for over three years -- with no apparent signs of improvement. Many economists now see a "jobless recovery" as likely -- due to the number of jobs eliminated in major industries that won't be coming back. How long does Unemployment have to be continually extended to change the 26-week "norm"?

Thanks. Does anyone know the status of what wikipedia refers to as "a long-proposed second entry to the station on the west side of Washington Boulevard to ease congestion?"

It could provide direct access to the Light Rail station and the mall as well as a safer and quicker access to the PATH for all coming from the HP area.

both sides are on welfare. The tenant expects his rent to be below fair value, the landlord wants to change the agreed term of his purchase(property) so he can get more money.

i was just thinking with all the debate around capitalism and find it rather funny. If you think about it, around here if you own a property you get taxed to death, a 400k house with a 10k tax is all too common, on top of paying rental tax if investment. In china, which is a communist country, the government doesnt tax their citizens much. The same 400k (dollar to dollar) property, you pay maybe $100 a year on tax, and if you rent it out there is no additional tax and those are in the big cities, in the countryside it's even much less.

And there is very little tenant protection, if tenant cannot pay the rent, they get kicked onto the street the next month no question asked. If landlord wants to increase the rent by 200% next year, they are free to do so as long as someone is willing to pay for it.

Shouldnt it be the other way around, i thought communism is based on everyone contributing to the state and divide up the wealth. While capitalism is the opposite. Now it seems everything is reversed.

Just some thoughts....

$200 for a 3-way isn't a bad deal. It would have cost anyone that much for two nice dinners and sufficient liquor, anyway.

Note the reference to the "E" on the pillars. There are some cool historical arial pictures of the area when you enter the mall from the footbridge. Upon entering the mall look up and to the left.

Is Henry the, thin older man that is constantly cleaning PH? If not, then I vote for that guy. He is always nice and is out there all day and night sprucing up the streets.

He wears those big sunglasses, that older people wear or you might get after eye surgery, around when its dark outside.

Union City has come so far in a short time this is pretty sad if true. Either way Stack has proved that rampant poverty doesn't have to include filthy and crime ridden streets.

I like the guy who chains his walker to a street sign outside that no-name bar on the corner of 1st and Erie. He must have had it stolen once while he was having a bevvie. It looks like he needs the walker to get TO the bar but not to get from the street sign to his bar stool... maybe he only needs it after he drinks. Cracks me up.

Pavonia PATH Station design

Does anyone know the history of the design of this station? The entrance is very oddly placed for anyone coming from the west who must cross Washington street and the plaza only to double back underground to the platform. Was the entrance always only from the east?

I would not recommend Flash Lube as well. Same thing that happened to regulator happened to me. They did not put the cap on tight enough, leaked oil, went for a road trip, then had to get a whole new engine.

I get a kick out of the guy who you sometimes see in and around City Hall. He's got a ruddy complexion, his hair is always disheveled, he wears short-sleeved shirts with a tie and the top button is never buttoned and the tie is always askew. He's no stranger to some of the local bars and sometimes he'll erupt in song for no reason. He's a piece of work.

Stack; the best thing to happen in Union City since Bill Musto and now there's a possible link to ill gotten funds. Hudson County must be losing their "touch".

ok, much as i would love to pin it on Gnome, i think G-stik sort of shot the first arrow with the rich-white-people-don't-give-a-damn thing. which is not only tired but is also inaccurate.

but Gnome made it nasty.

Now back to the originally scheduled topic: the guy in the motorize wheelchair? LOVE HIM. He toots around VVP early in the morning. Nice guy.

Thanks for ruining the thread, Gnome.

More weirdos.

Young artist types, old artist types, weirdos with tattoos weirdos with chains on their faces, whatever. Weirdos with briefcases full of money weirdos with briefcases full of whiskey.

More weirdos.

There is zero logic for adding a lane of traffic. I walk down Columbus every morning and there is not nearly enough traffic to justify this. I just emailed Fulop again.

Does anyone have contacts at the Jersey Journal etc to get more coverage of this? I can't believe they want buses and trucks barreling down a road with pedestrians steps away

Re: National Night Out to mix crime prevention and fun

Home away from home


Just a follow on: The rally at City Hall isn't intended to co-opt anything. No one needs to miss their traditional National Night Out observance. The rally starts at 6. The other events run from 6:30 to 9:30. Come to City Hall for an hour and then go to your neighborhood event if that is what you typically do.
