Re: Cutting down large trees on Barrow Street

The other sad fact is that the stumps are never removed, preventing a new tree from ever being planted. There are now no trees on the west side of Barrow between Mercer and Wayne. I saw the sections of trunk that were cut down. The tree was healthy. They could of trimmed it if the wires were the issue. What's the City's policy when a homeowner calls and "claims" a tree is dangerous and needs to be removed? I called once and was told that there was no Ciy arborist. Who makes the decision? Nearly a hundred years of history gone in an afternoon.

I was always under the impression that a tree had to be dead for a removal process by the city's DPW / Parks and Forestry Division.

Agreed. During the summer and fall, I tend to keep at home a stash of styrofoam coffee cups (with lids and all) and I will often take a roadie with me while I walk the dog. I like to think the lids lend more credence to the "don't mind me, I'm just having a coffee" ruse.


The police do not seem to care that people openly smoke marijuana out in public they should turn a blind eye to drinking too.


Funny you would mention this. I have noticed as of late that there seems to be an unofficial policy of turning a blind eye to the use of marijuana, even in public. One the houses at the northwest corner of 1st and Marin has a VERY STRONG smell of weed coming from it almost daily. There are cops stationed directly across from it working off duty shifts as security guys at O'Hara's and they must be able to smell it. I certainly notice the smell as I walk past that corner with my dog. Likewise, I often walk on Newark and Grove and come across the wafting smell of weed and cops don't seem to care at all.

They're doing off duty work it's not addressed because of union issues. Same thing happened when the cops were doing off duty work when that new school in the Heights was being built last year. Three guys robbed the Catlow Moving Company and beat the owner up...he died a few months later. The cops were called but were "on an off duty job" at the time and could not address it.

Re: Hudson Markets not closing?

It will stay open for one more season which will be till the end of this year December 31, 2017.This has been going on for a few years but this time they sealed the deal. It was supposed to close last December 31st then reopen in March with a limited amount of items mainly plants but it stayed open with half the store closed off. Now it has expanded back to the orignal size and with full stock as well. Unfortunately though it will cease at this year's end.

Popped in there Saturday after the Earth Day festival. What a terrific place, reminds me of a Chinese Whole Foods / Chinatown West. Pressed for time but gave it the once over and was impressed. Picked up some fresh non-Asian fruits and vegetables but taking a gander as I roamed about.

Why add to the problem though. And the ones that usually thumb their nose at the rules of the road are the day labors. Prove me wrong if you feel this was a derogatory or incorrect comment, but it is a pattern that I see frequently.

Then we wonder why auto and health insurance rates are so high here in Jersey City. State law mandates anyone under age 18 must wear a helmet. Absent minded parents I suppose. Procreation isn't what it used to be.

Weird, I could have sworn I commented here.

I think this is great and would love to see it expanded to other parts of the city. The pockmark parking zones are absurd right now, where if you go two blocks from your house suddenly you're in another zone. And having permit parking apply only during work hours makes no sense to me as most people would need parking during the evening anyway.

I like that people working in the area can get a 6 month permit for only $50 as well, which is better than taking chances and getting tickets right now.

also thought this quote was hilarious
Quote:
Pat O'Melia, of Congress Street, called the measure an "attack on the working people of the Heights." O'Melia said it would hurt workers of businesses on Central and Palisade avenues.

"You might as well put red caps on that say 'make America great again,'" O'Melia told council members, "because you're all working for Trump."

wtf does that even mean? I dislike Trump a lot but a lot of Jersey City people love to freak out about any little change.

I too wish that the entire city was like the Heights having a uniformed zoned system instead of this segregated society. As far as change, do you really want a submissive society to just accept what ever is thrown in front of them ? Remember this ordinance should only be inconvenient towards out of town plates so not to convenient local residents. Being loyal to our residents and home owners should be first priority.

A few considerations not thought of: Charging for health care worker visits, neighbors deciding to stay for longer visits late in the evening, and proper signatures for street parameters. Many signatures were collected as a whole but not all reflect each block that zoned parking will be implemented. Knowing this ordinance will not take effect until a year from now there will be time for tweaking and polishing which was the thought process in the initial stages of this plan.

Strap hangers across the entire car would help too.


I don’t mind standing, but unlike the laborers and service workers I ride with, I sit on my cracker-butt most of the day and get paid more for it.

So you get paid more huh. Do you normally reveal your salary to strangers on the train ? And what makes you think they make less than you ? You'd be surprised at what people make based on their looks.

Probably 'cause it's fake news. I've never heard of this publication from the provided link below.

You never heard of Rlsmedia? It is a media site that deals with breaking news around NJ. They usually have stories posted much faster then the Jersey Journal.

Also how is it fake news when you commented after I posted the Jersey Journal article confirming it to be true?

Somehow I had trouble viewing, now that I can see your JJ post I deleted my reply. I guess nj.com finally reported it.

On Tuesday March 28th at 7:00 pm the Nelson Avenue Block Association will hold their monthly meeting in St. Anne's Centennial Hall auditorium 253 Congress St. between Kennedy Blvd. and Nelson Ave. in the vicinity of the Western Slope area up in the Heights. The group meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. The evening's guest speaker will be Patrick G. Stamato, Director of the J.C. Department of Public Works. He will answer questions regarding city owned property and it's responsibilities along with garbage and recycling concerns. There will also be a representative from the J.C. Resident Response Center to answer general questions and the community police for crime concerns. New members are always welcomed and a good way to stay informed on neighborhood issues in your area. Hope to see you there.

Asking Price: 1.75 MM
Taxes (2015): 10.6 K (a whopping 0.6%)

If we end up at a 2% rate, the new taxes would be 35K. Even if we end up with a 1.8% rate, this property will pay 31.5K. I wonder if the seller, or their agent, will disclose that to potential buyers.

Tell me again how this reval is not overdue?

If they have to be told then they should continue to rent.

You should use an oil based stain killing primer that stops any bleed through. Brands such as Zinsser Stain Killer primer or Kilz. Make sure you primer the whole surface not just a spot prime or after you paint the top coat you will see where you've primed.

As citizens don't we have the right to swear ourselves in at the violations bureau in the city court house ? Just like motor vehicle tickets we should exercise our rights and fight these infractions if our elected officials will not.
