If owners of the buildings want to put up cameras - so be it.
I don't like the notion of requiring owners to install them. It's essentialy forcing the community to spy on itself in the name of crime.
Now I'm all for lower crime- but not at the expense of another civil liberty.

One of the downtown JC mags should get hold of him and do an interview.

he was in the same spot yesterday walking past merchant. all the people sitting at the tables out front looked up to check him out - he's becoming quite the hood celebrity. he had on a long, lime-green/aqua jacket that went down past his knees, bright hat and white shoes.

Re: School Board Election -- Anyone Got a Clue?

Please, please, go out and vote on Tuesday. Thanks Bright Moments for the Mia Scalanga email and, I received Steven Fulops email as well. It really helps.

Many new parents have arrived in Jersey City and I hope they go out and vote. My son is only 2 years old but Pre-K is just around the corner.

I met Heather Martin and Edward Cheatham at an event last week. I was quite impressed with Edward Cheatham. He had many points and goals that I seemed to agree with as a new mom.

I did not get a chance to talk to Heather Martin though I was impressed that a new JC resident is amongst the candidates.

I also did not get a chance to speak with Anthony Cucci though he was at the event. I always enjoy him.

My vote will probably be something like this, 1 person that brings fresh ideas to the group, 1 person with JC experience, and then the wild card.

Just saw him on Grove across from City Hall. At least I think it was "the" downtown pimp. He certainly looked pimplike, especially because he was black. Jokes. He was less pimped out than I would have liked for my first sighting of him- all black suit and coat but with a red stripe on his black fedora of course. And a cool pair of shades. He just looked like a cool cat. As Joe Jackson said, you gotta look sharp.

'NEIGHBORHOODS TERRORIZED' --- Task force to examine havoc by students

'NEIGHBORHOODS TERRORIZED'
Task force to examine
Saturday, April 15, 2006

JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

havoc by students

They fight, kick over garbage cans and drive customers from local stores.

Now, the few hundred students wreaking havoc as they come and go from Dickinson High School in Jersey City will be the subject of a special City Council committee.

"It's a real public safety issue that has to be roped in," said Ward C Councilman Steve Lipski, announcing on Wednesday the formation of a committee.

"The neighborhoods up there are being terrorized," said Lipski, the committee chair. "That's a school that was built for 1,900 (students). Now it has 3,100 (students)."

Make that 3,500 students, according to Jersey City Superintendent of Schools Charles T. Epps Jr., who reacted favorably yesterday to the council's action.

"That's a good thing," Epps said about the committee's creation. "We know there is a concern and a problem because of the number of students. When they come out it almost paralyzes the community."

Extra police and security have been assigned to the school.

I think Pimp Daddy lives near Montgomery and Jersey ave. I saw him walking out of a building in a pink suit!

1. The lease holder at WTC is Silverstein, not Silverman as I wrote in a previous post.

2. Where do I think most people will be working? From their homes - the need for face to face interaction is perceived to be too costly. My conservative work place already has people working at home as much as 2 days a week - made possible by investment in computer systems that allow access to files, same time conferences, etc. I am told (but have no proof) that already there are companies with expanded work at home programs that have cut back on their office space. Desk sharing has come into play.

Whether this makes for an enjoyable worklife is questionable - will people like the lack of comraderie that the watercooler conversation provides? I am not sanguine about the future of office buildings - any being built should probably have alternative plans for conversion to residential.

(bright moments will appreciate that....)

There is a rumor going around that he is a retired plainclothes policeman. This is typical retirement behavior for most of these guys.

The cameras have been around in my area for maybe 2 years now. Just look up at the light poles when you are walking around and you will be able to spot them. I don't think it's a good idea to get too specific about where they are and where they are not.

you guys are dead wrong. any buildings put up in the next 5 years will be online for the next 100 years. nyc is projected to increase in population by 1,000,000 people over the next 20+ years - where do you think these people will work? to get a major building through approvals and built in nyc can take 5-10 years. stop thinking that tomorrow - literally - is as far out as we need to think. business leaders were calling for 49 million modern sf prior to 9/11 and in a followup in 2004.

According to the Jersey Journal:
"At 10:50 p.m. Thursday, a 59-year-old man and a 51-year-old man, both of Washington Street, were at Warren and Morris streets when two men approached and one pointed a handgun at them and took money, police reports said."

Gee, I walked by that corner an hour and a half earlier. This is not good.

There are two restaurants at this corner, Presto's and Amelia's. On Warren and Morris Street there are several businesses. If they have cameras, it will help catch the perpetrators, or it will help discourage such crimes. Better street lighting would help too. It is so dark around here.

Steve, we need some incentives to encourage storeowners to put in cameras.

From Brewster: What a crock. Anyone following the Battle of Ground Zero knows that one of the issues they're duking it out over is the fact that no one but Silverman sees a need to replace the amount of office space destroyed.

If that is the case - and I suspect you're right - why:

1. is there so much concern that Silverman doesn't have the finances to build the whole project?
2. did LMDC and others go nutty when it was suggested that part of the site be used for housing?
3. has the space allocated to cultural institutions been so limited?

I think the general public is being snowed.

Am I the only person in Jersey City who has yet to see this guy? WELL THAT STOPS NOW!

Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, fans of Larry The Cable Guy, all these mysteries pale before this elusive Phantom. And I swear to you, on the souls of my illegitimate children, that I will track down this fugitive & find out what his story is!

Pimp? Bootsy Collins groupie? Or just a wayward soul in need of a Mens WareHouse gift certificate!? I'm gonna solve this mystery!

Robert Stack sez;

Thank you.

And while I'm at it, who here doesn't think John Walsh ripped off my act, huh? That cardbord cut-out couldn't emote his way out of a paper bag! How I hate him! But I digress......."

Yes, that was me! I'm sorry but I don't recall who you were. But I snapped a few sly shots of him with the camera phone. Yeah, the walkie talkie phone was crazy. I almost asked him to turn it down.

Re: School Board Election -- Anyone Got a Clue?

Home away from home


I thought i would bring this other post back up so as to keep them both current till tuesdays election.
Councilmen Fulop has picked three candidates he feels comfortable with and i agree with at least one and that is Mahdi Hemingway.
Mahdi works with the kids in the housing sites every day with an after school program that needs to be expanded.
Crime and education go hand in hand and he is the one person running that can bridge that gap.Can any other candidate walk in to the Booker Tee housing site and talk to the kids.Mahdi and vernon would just shake this old time hack board up.
Lastly in a city of 240,000 voters only 5000 people vote in a school board.An average of 800 vote downtown,bring that to 1800 and watch city hall pay attention.take a shot, vote tues. and every issue we have downtown will then be backed by a real voting block.
We have got to pay attention to our kids now or deal with the consequences later.

Re: HUDSON COUNTY DFA ENDORSES MAHDI HEMINGWAY AND VERNON RICHARDSON FOR JERSEY CITY BOARD OF EDUCAT
Home away from home

I have brought this post back because i think the DFA is the right group to get behind downtown.As opposed to all the different and diverse groups that we have downtown, each with its own agenda,the DFA is a political org. with a political philosophy that actually encompasses all the ideas of most downtown organizations.
We should organize a DFA chapter downtown as a means of forming a voting block that can compete with the city hall machine.
With that said i am voting for the DFA backed candidates in the tues. school board election.I urge everyone to do the same and pick the third candidate of their own choosing.
A thousand downtown votes would rock City Hall on its heels.

About an hour ago I spotted the pimp at the corner of Jersey and Columbus. He was wearing a shiny red suit with what looked like a red top hat with a horizontal black stripe. He also had a matching red umbrella.

I thought abatements were only supposed to be given to stimulate development in areas where there was no market incentive to build, and also to provide "affordable housing".
