Very good point CubaLibre.

I don't think there is another person in Jersey City that has dedicated his time and effort to the City like Sean Connors.
The people have spoken.
YAY Sean!!!!

No, it is a block from the last block of MLK. It is between Danforth and Cator. Arlington Park is a couple blocks from Communipaw. Triangle Park is not really even a park it just a couple patches of grass, trees and a bench or two in the middle of a few streets that intersect.

Healy and Chromium (Irrefutable Evidence)
Quite a regular

Conflicting videos, one from jc1tv and one from reputable scientist of NJDEP and NJN reporting it.

Video pulled from the http://www.jc1tv.com/ website today after yesterday's NTPStudy news release shows Healy with two E.O.H.S.I Drs.

You won't find it there anymoe...
Well, we cached it. And here it is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ9VwmrC-2U

Sampling household showed almost all homes had 20 PPM and these two scientist say it's safe for residences?

20 PPM is not even acceptable for Brownfield sites!

The NTP study says 1PPM.

As per yesterdays NJN Exclusive Report:

I think it's a good thing that BrightMoments posted information on the candidates even the ones he wasn't supporting. It's called transparency. One of the main reasons School Board elections have abysmal turnout is because of the lack of information about candidates, and any attempt to get people more info empowers them to get off their lazy butts and vote.

And why call BrightMoments out on posting the emails but not call out Steve Fulop for sending the emails to his lists?

Knowledge is power.

If you see them at Walgreens again, make a note of the day and time and file a complaint here:

https://www.walgreens.com/contactus/contactus_store.jsp

Pick "safety" for the category. The security guards are supposed to be monitoring the parking lot and dealing with any problems. Walgreens Corporate is very responsive to these complaints. You'll probably get a phone call from a scared-sounding store manager within 24 hours.

Re: Lawyer recommendation for Re-finance

Hi...

When I purchased my place in August 2007, I used this gentleman. I thought he was professional and did a good job. His rates seemed reasonable and we closed just a few days after the requested closing time. (hang up on the other side).

Attorneys, Jersey City
Sabato, Vincent E


Description - Attorney
Services - Real Estate closings, Mortgage closings, Business sales & purchases
Website - www.realestateclosings.net
Address - 264 Newark Ave, Jersey City, New Jersey ( NJ ) 07302-2366
Telephone - (201) 653-6977

With regards to refinancing, I've refinanced already once to 5.75% and that was about a year ago at this time. I worked directly with Chase, and the costs were very minimal and didn't need an attorney as I was an existing customer. They just changed the rate and I was good to go. Same terms... 30 year fixed. No prepayment penalties... all conditions same as before.

Good luck.

FG

If you love the peregrine falcons nesting at 101 Hudson Street, please help save the habitat for them and other species that have found niches in our urban landscape. Ask the Surface Transportation Board for a full environmental impact statement for the Harsimus Branch.

A naturalist did a small study of just one Embankment segment some years ago, noting how important the habitat was. No one has studied the whole branch at all, and it includes not only the Embankment but land to the west next to Mary Benson Park, the Turnpike, and the Harsimus Cemetery. Much of this area has returned to nature.
We should find out what species it supports before Conrail is allowed to walk away from it.

Go to http://www.stb.dot.gov/Ect1/ecorrespondence.nsf/incoming?OpenForm and enter, in the first four boxes, the Docket No. AB 167 1189 X . Then enter your contact information and a comment.

If you need more information, see http://www.embankment.org/whitesite/FilingEnviroCommentsSTB1.html

you say that now but in 5 years when they are busted up from the icing and thawing and the trees you will hate them.
You need something that is not so brittle and you can have smaller gaps. You just need enough for expansion and contraction.

While I do agree that we needed a local store that sells produce and is open late and on the weekends... I am a bit disappointed. I was SO excited for them to open and I keep giving them another chance, but I still think it is pretty bad. It LOOKS great- lots of options and variet, but that is it.

They are trying to do too much and not doing any of it well. The salad bar looks great, but the food itself is dry, cold and kind of gross. If you only want a salad, they don't offer enough salad items to make it interesting. The sushi is pretty bad and the seaweed salad is dry. And the prices are ridiculous! Way more expensive than a comparable salad bar in Manhattan. For example, their Yogi tea is $4 and it is $1.999 at the pharmacy.
I think there is a lot of potential, but I also feel bad about the business they are stealing from the pharmacy and green cow. Did they really need to sell the SAME groceries and items as the pharmacy? I mean even their frozen section is identical to what the pharmacy sells.
I hope they will continue to improve and figure out what they do best...and maybe even adjust the prices. People will go while it is new, but will go back to Cosi/Green Cow, etc once it gets old. We'll see....

You are right. That is the reason they never made public the amount of drugs, it probably wasn't much considering it was 50 arrest. I bet out of the 50 only a handful even have serious enough charges to see any real time. The majority probably had low bails and some probably didn't even have a high enough charge to see a county jail. It is just a show they put on, grab as many people as you can and let the prosecutor worry about the charges sticking later. These arrest have more to do with quantity then quality arrest. The arrest aren't even related to the gang war that has been in the paper the past month. That is where they should focus.

Despite the depressing results of this election we now have a clear understanding of the effort required to overcome the ability of the current School Board and the teachers Union from serving their own needs and not the needs of the community.

I am embarassed by the school board that currently represents our district.

Mayor Healy gains nothing by debating anyone. This election is his to lose. Engaging in a debate or any other type of intelligent discourse does not serve the man well. Have you ever actually heard Jerramiah Healy speak? He is much better served by distributing newsletters and producing commercials. Whoever his campaign manager is knows what he is doing.

An even more egregious example was the 3br/2ba unit nearby... 1700sq ft place (that needed a fair amount of work) offered at $499k...that works out to $293/ft! Remember when $500/ft was considered reasonable for jersey city? What's even more jaw dropping though is the taxes are $14,300/yr and the maintenance is $1,000/mo! So without even getting a mortgage, you're paying out $2200/mo. ($4350 with a mortgage). I doubt you could rent it out for over $4k/mo... Maybe if the taxes got reassessed you could make it work, but otherwise, I just don't see it working...


Interesting post-script to this story, I was browsing rentals today and stumbled across this exact unit: Asking rent was $2500/mo.... I think my original post on this was back in January 2009, so it's been sitting empty for 3 months. Hopefully whoever owns this place (a bank maybe?) figures out a way to make it work with the maintenance and taxes.

Edit: Actually this place is still available to buy - $459k (unless there are two different 1700sq ft places available in the same building).

FWIW, I have not seen (or heard!) the obnoxious Healy Video/Sound Van at Walgreen's since Sunday. Not sure if it's only stationed there on weekends, but maybe making contact actually does make a difference.

Here's hoping.

And if anybody has had any sightings/hearings of the dreaded van since Sunday night, please post them here.

Healy declined another debate - this one on affordable housing.

All of the other candidates attended with an assitant of Healy reading from a prepared statement. What's the deal here? Must have been another anti-healy event. Any pro-Healy debates coming up where we can actually see and hear him speak?????

I've heard the Healy sound box/video van spewing S#$T past legal operating hours as well. Never liked hearing it (from any of the candidates).

Sure it's a violation to be operating past listed guidelines, but if you think that a cop is going to stick his/her neck on the line to issue a summons against the Healy Machine, you're mistaken. That same cop will most likely be directing traffic on the skyway the next day.

Hi, if these raids were conducted in Greenville and Lafayette....

And the "New Jersey State Police helicopter roared over Jersey City this weekend where a crackdown on violence and drugs led to 50 arrests by city police working with a large task force of federal, state and county law enforcement."

Why was the helicopter on Sunday doing all sorts of looping downtown over Harsimus Cove and Hamilton Park?

Were they looking for something suspicious? Are they doing set up for a future crackdown downtown?

Seems odd that all the police activity and arrests took place in other areas of Jersey City, but that the noisy helicopter gets to disturb all of Jersey City residents?

Is this an intimidation thing? Like spend about two hours and do loops around the neighborhood and scare the dealers sort of thing (and annoy the taxpaying regular citizens) sort of thing?

Just curious as to the complaints about the helicopter this Sunday were downtown.

Thanks

FG


I don't mind the occasional police helicopter, although it can be annoying. The Helicopters that really annoy me are the news copters that hover over the Holland Tunnel some mornings, sometimes at 5 am. Do we really need to see that there's traffic in the Holland Tunnel on TV?

Yeah, let's blame the basketball players... or maybe they were going to the St Francis ER, only to find it was gone. I personnally think they were shopping for Vespas and decided to case the neighborhood. That 2 grand could make a nice down payment on a scooter.
It couldn't be that Hamilton Park is easy access from the Turnpike and Holland Tunnel, is known to be somewhat afluent, and has $60,000 cars parked on the street.
Not that they deserved to get robbed, but it used to be that if you could afford that type of car, you parked it in a garage. You parked your Pinto on the street.
Good job by the Police...this time.
