So Minnie was right! They are going to cut down trees.
That is absolute madness, those trees are magnificient.
We will be doing ourselves and future generations a massive disservice if we cut-down a single one of the mature trees in that park.

A new playground or dog run will need replacing in twenty years or so, if we cut down a mature tree it can never be undone. (well not for 100 years or so).

I am stunned they are even proposing it.

I agree, tern/Robin, and would have been nice if Minnie had spelled it out that she had an insider's view on these plans (does she know "JARRETT RENSHAW" who wrote the JJ article?)and KNEW that's what plans said instead of making it seem like her own personal agenda.

I'm against ANY old growth trees being cut! See here what happened behind where I live:

80', 80+ yr. old Willow murdered next to Grace Church!


How do you cut down an 80' tall Willow?

Of course the official name for the place was "Tippy's Charcoal Haven" . Had a soft serve ice cream place on the side and I seem to remember they had a pizza section for a while too. Another soft serve place was Rands at the top of Newark by Dickinson.

8 commuter vans off streets
Wednesday, August 30, 2006

Spot inspections of 15 commuter vans in Downtown Jersey City resulted in dozens of violations being issued, and eight of the vans had to be taken out of service and towed away, officials said.

The Newark Avenue vans were redirected onto a side street and inspected in a joint operation by Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio's office, the Hudson County Sheriff's Office and the state Department of Transportation.

Three of the randomly selected vans had fake insurance cards, DeFazio said. Four were towed after being deemed unsafe for operation, DeFazio said. Two vans had inoperable emergency doors - perhaps intentionally, DeFazio said.

The Jersey Journal
Hamilton Park plans will be displayed tonight
Wednesday, August 30, 2006

Residents will get a preview tonight of plans for the renovation of Jersey City's historic Hamilton Park and will be invited to provide input on what it will look like in the future.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the former St. Francis Hospital, located directly on the park between Eighth and Ninth streets.

The initial drawing by Middletown-based T&M Associates - which is doing a master parks plan for the entire city - is based on community surveys that were conceived by the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association.

The plans include cutting down some trees in the park, as well as moving around some structures.

Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop, who helped organize the meeting, says it's intended to get initial feedback on the drawings. The feedback will then be considered for future revisions.

"Hamilton should be a showcase park for the entire city to use, and it hasn't had any sort of renovation for quite some time," said Fulop. "What's great about this is that it's being driven by the community, the stakeholders."

Captain Al's was a GREAT place! Grizzled old tugboat guys, who were real drinkers too with great stories.

Anybody remember the place the bar that Rose ran who died of cancer in the mid-80's with the lesbian bartenders, though it was a workingman's bar, around the corner from Flamingo Grill??

What do they do with the people now living in these "project buildings" or these "blocks" of residential properties?

Should the city send out letters saying -- "Sorry but you must move -- we have these guys who just got out of jail and they have a problem with drugs -- they need your houses and apartments"


I think it's really the same as establishing a drive-through fast food zone. You have to either find a block where, really, just about every existing resident/tenant already is selling or using drugs, or you have to locate the druggie zone in a location that's now vacant.

Also: in the 1920s, during Prohibition, liquor meant guns. Now liquor continues to cause a lot of bad behavior, but I can walk past the liquor store on the corner of Grove and Newark without worrying too much about alcoholics clubbing me over the head to buy Thunderbird.

So, if you say, "Drugs are bad and people shouldn't use them," I agree with you. If drugs are legal, they will probably ruin more lives, just as alcohol quietly ruins more lives now than it did during Prohibition. But I think drugs would ruin fewer neighborhoods, because it would be a lot easier to restrict WHERE people sell and use drugs if drugs were legal, and it would be easier for addicts to buy drugs without robbing other people, because the drugs would probably be cheaper.

Anybody in the know, knows that he didn't "TAKE THE INITIATIVE IN CREATING THE INTERNET" because he came along well *after* it was already FRICKIN there!! Do you get it now?

Errr... more like somebody spilled the beans!

Well they've had some time to change the plans... lets hope the 'new' plan looks marvelous.

Wed. August 30
7:00 PM
in the St. Francis Hospital, on Hamilton Park (in the yellow brick builidng) on McWilliams Place between 8th and 9th Street.

If you're not sure where to go... just meet us at the Farmers Market and we'll walk in together. If you don't have time to eat.. you can grab an iced tea and a piece of fruit at the market, or a home baked cookie.

That's all quite impressive Ms. Pinkowitz but you are avoiding councels question. I must ask you once again. Where were you on the night of June 22nd 1995 between the hours of 8:15 and 10:35 PM? Your Honor, please direct the witness to answer the question.

Here's the only logical answer: HEALY CAN'T READ.

But boy, can he drink. And lay around naked. And ignore all civic duties, not to mention moral responsibility and plain old common sense and politeness!

He is a total embarrassment to this city. And kind of a jerk to boot.

Fundraiser tickets - you offered me complementary tickets to a political fundraiser during a city council meeting in November 2004, the Tsunami did not occur until the end of December, after Christmas.

Dan, you’ve lost your mind!

You’re correct on one point and ONE point only, we never corresponded via city e-mail. BECAUSE YOU WOULD ONLY SEND E-MAILS TO MY AOL HOME ACCOUNT! Btw, the tickets we offered to you and everyone else… was to the fundraiser that was being done for the victims of the Tsunami, where 100% of the proceeds went to Unicef.

Also, I had nothing to do with PAD and left that strictly to the Councilman, the only involvement I had was with 110/111 when they were not working within the scoop of their permits and the city ordinances. I would never have made a call to anyone to discuss the PAD since I wasn’t fully knowledgeable in that area.

You really do have a distorted view on the correct facts.

Have a happy day, as always it's a pleasure.


Thank you for replying so quickly, boy you really had to do some digging to resurrect this thread.

Once again Dan you’re wrong.
I have never bought a political fundraising ticket, sold a ticket or ever hacked them out, NOT MY STYLE!
I don’t even attend these types of events. I make it a policy never to do this and the Councilman was aware of this when he hired me. When the Councilman hired me he knew right from the start that the only thing I contribute too, do soliciting of funds for, or volunteer my time for is chartable causes.


1) Again the only fundraiser that my boss, the former Councilman had during the winter was for the Tsunami Victims and yes I worked very hard on that one. Proudly we raised over $20,000.00.

2) It would have been impossible for me to be at any Council meeting from mid October thru October 31st because I was on the West Coast taking my first Vacation in over a year, and days after that my father took ill and died on shortly after. I didn’t return to doing any evening Council meeting or neighborhood group meetings till December.
My time in the council office during December was only in the day time, If you recall I did the fundraising and the event for the Chavez family who was the single mom with three kids who lost everything to a fire and had no insurance. Also, I do the Dear Santa letters for over 1200 children a year so there goes me at any December night time anything, the only place you could find me in the evening was at a toy store filling Dear Santa letters.

So this leads us into January/February when I returned to going to all the Council meetings and also was the time that Former Councilman Maldonado did the fundraiser event for the Tsunami Victims, and yes he did ask me to give some tickets to a few select folks. and BTW if you recall Junior did have a fundraiser in early September 04, that was the last political fundraiser he had and where he did invite the folks from 111 join him as his guest, many of them attended and he had the chef prepare them. whatever they wanted, as you recall many had the electric shut off due to that Arson fire at their building, and Junior felt they may need a night off from all the drama. Possibly you were aware of this but the invite was for the folks from 111 St., not you!

So before you accuse me of anything, make sure you get facts and your dates straight.
My facts are the facts; your attacks; like a hole in water, just false accusations that have a distorted time table and little to no merit...

And one more thing Dan, “president of a civic organization”, your “Fire, Ready, Aim” type of personality/temper will get you little to no results. You may want to re-think your approach NOT everyone is the bad guy!


Best of luck to you!

That's a dam good idea, JCPD have many cameras in high crime areas, why not there?


See the thread about the 7th & Coles robbery to know why cameras are a waste of time. The school wouldn't turn over the tapes and the JCPD couldn't care less. They told the victims they wouldn't view them if they had them.

Bickfords cafeteria in the Square. I remember the little bowls of mashed potatoes that were extruded like Mr. Softee with one pea at the top like a cherry. Very intriguing to a 3 or 4 year old. Also Liss's drug store, Woolworth, Kreske, Grants lunch counters. Weirdest of all was the Texas Weenie joint across from the police station on Central.

i think we should give a big hug to every drug dealer, and tell them "hugs, not drugs."

they will probably start breaking down like matt damon in good will hunting. then we'll hug them harder and say "it's not your fault" over and over until they cry it all out.
