That's pretty cool. Bergen Square's role in NJ history is underappreciated. Saturday's event will be worth checking out.

A relic from the past turns up just in time for the Bergen Square Festival

Today 2:28 PM (05/16/2019)
By David Mosca | The Jersey Journal

Old becomes new this Saturday in Jersey City and you can check it out.

The Journal Square Community Association, the Bergen Square Historical Society, the Journal Square Restoration Corporation, and the Jersey City Office of Cultural Affairs have put together the Bergen Square Festival, an event they hope will be the first of many celebrating the history, culture and vibrancy of the community.

And, as a bonus, visitors can check out the original deed for the community’s historic Van Wagenen Apple Tree House, which dates back to 1688.

By Patrick Villanova | The Jersey Journal

For the second time this week, authorities have recovered a body from the Hudson River, this time from the Hoboken waterfront.

The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed it’s Homicide Unit is investigating the death of a male whose body was pulled from the water near Pier A on Wednesday afternoon.

The discovery of the body comes two days after another body was recovered from the Hudson River near Exchange Place in Jersey City on Monday morning. Authorities have yet to release the identity of that person.

Top acts to headline Jersey City Heights festival

Today 4:03 PM (5/15/2019)
By Jim Testa | For The Jersey Journal

The Jersey City Heights already has the Fox & Crow, Low Fidelity, and The Hutton transforming the neighborhood into a destination for live local music.

On Saturday, May 18, Lo-Fi Takes the Streets, sponsored by the Riverview Neighborhood Association, will double down on that idea with an all-day street festival on Ferry Street just off Palisade Avenue. The free, family-friendly festival will include an exciting lineup of live bands, featuring a rare appearance by Jersey City’s OG rockers Rye Coalition. The clamorous, classic-rock Milwaukees and Brixton Riot, singer/songwriter Sean Kiely, the raucous Babraham Lincoln, ageless punk-rockers the Hudson City Rats, and the stoner-rock quartet CHANGEöRDER complete the bill.

It's almost impossible not to ride on sidewalks in JC. I was a daily rider from the Heights to Journal Square and if I didn't want to get hit by a car there were parts of the trip where riding on the sidewalk was necessary.

If they are gonna be treated the same as bikes, they shouldn't be on the sidewalk. I do agree with you though. They'll end up in the sidewalk eventually.

More NIMBY garbage. Fuck developers, let's keep that part of JC looking like a shithole. The grammar in this article is so bad, it could have been written by Yvonne. This dude was on the city council? Looks like his idea were so terrible his district ran him out of office and thank god they did. Hopefully the citizens of Ward E run the equally terrible James Solomon out of office.

Gentrification coming way too fast in Jersey City neighborhood | Opinion

Chris Gadsden the former Jersey City Ward B Councilman took the time to give his take on the status of gentrification on the Westside on JC, where I also happen to be a resident.

By Chris Gadsden

Dear 400 Claremont LLC,

I grew up at 357 West Side Ave, on the same side of the street as Diamond Auto Body. I live down the street from Diary Queen and around the corner from Carmine.

I have concerns about the gentrification of the area. I believe your project expedites the process of removing the original inhabitants of the community with our new neighbors. Not saying I have anything against our new neighbors, I am just advocating for a more inclusive community where everyone will benefit from the development that is happening in our community.

According to Jersey Diggs, your project will have retail and restaurant space along with a fitness center, coffee bar, golf simulator, rooftop community garden, and private bowling alley. Your project calls for 631 units to be included along with 12,044 square feet of retail space and 279 parking spaces, according to the notice. The Real Deal also reported last month that the $120 million project is being referred to as “The Element,” it is expected to benefit from opportunity zone funding, and there are also plans for a “saltwalter pool” at the development.

I have a problem with the exclusiveness of the project. Your private bowling lanes, day care center, and market rate rent tell the surrounding neighborhood that they can’t afford to live around you and that they are not wanted.

You probably have your general contractors all ready to go, they know who they are going to hire to get the project complete, so there is probably no need to ask about how many local people will help develop the project because you don’t need them.

I think you are a selfish developer because you build projects without the need of the community being considered. Who are you selling this project to? How does this community benefit from this development? What is the community give back? Being that you don’t have affordable housing in the project, what are you doing to address this need in Jersey City? I already know the answer, you don’t have to. As a community leader, I am asking you to care.

I am asking that our leaders: planning, City Council, MUA, and Traffic and Engineering work on doing a thorough parking and sewer study of the Bayfront, NJCU West Campus, Culver/440, Droyers Point, Waters Street redevelopment zone because with increased density comes additional infrastructure concerns that cannot be addressed on a project by project basis. The NJ Transit Light Rail is scheduled to be closed for a year. How does your study correlate or (weigh) effects what’s being done at the light rail stations.

Based off the requirements in the redevelopment plan, you’ve met your parking requirement. But moving forward, Fields Construction is planning on building another 400 plus units down the street towards 440. Close to 1,000 new vehicles will need more than an extended stretch of Yale Avenue to accommodate the parking needs of the community. I say you build parking that will take at least 75% of the parking in your projects. Then as people habits change, public transportation improves, and the area becomes more bike friendly, then you can phase out the parking, maybe sell parking to the public to make a profit.

Overall I think you are another developer who will put profit over the original people. You have to sell a product to a group of people who are not here yet. “Close accessibility to transportation to New York, in an up and coming area of Jersey City.” “Why pay those huge rent in Manhattan, when you can move to a community and watch the original people in it leave, so that you can make it yours.”

Members of the Jersey City Fire Department pulled a body from the Hudson River on Monday, authorities said.

Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione confirmed that a body was recovered from the river, but did not have any additional information or the identity of the person. Police are investigating the person’s death, she added.

Freelance photographer Joe Shine, who was at the scene, said the body was removed from the water near 1 Harborside Place.

Jersey City’s mayor has had enough of being verified on Twitter

The mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, has made the unusual request to have his Twitter verification removed. In a tweet posted this morning, Fulop said he wanted his account to return to its unverified status. “I kind of took pride in that,” he said, “it reinforced I shouldn’t take myself too seriously and just work hard in my job.”

On the face of it, Fulop’s request makes little sense. Twitter verification ostensibly just proves that he is who he says he is, and prevents other accounts from trying to imitate him. But that little blue tick (which, yes, is technically white if you want to get pedantic about it) signifies so much more than that. Whatever Twitter’s intentions, it implies you’re important, that you’re famous, or — most controversially — that Twitter has given you its tacit approval.

Lawsuit filed by ex-cop who once played a dominatrix has no merit, lawyers say

JERSEY CITY — A whistleblower lawsuit filed by a Hudson County sheriff’s officer fired last year because she played a dominatrix in adult films should be thrown out, lawyers for the county are telling a judge.

The ex-officer, Kristin Hyman, 32, claims the county’s investigation into her past was retaliation for her allegations that she had been sexually harassed by a sergeant, but she cannot prove that link, the county’s lawyers say in the May 10 legal filing.

Hundreds protest budget cuts, planned teacher layoffs at Jersey City schools

JERSEY CITY — More than 300 parents, teachers and students crowded inside School 26 on Monday night to demand Jersey City school board members find a way to avoid massive cuts to school staffing and educational programs.

The board was meeting to adopt its $638 million budget for 2019-20 at a time when the 30,000-student district faced a budget gap that exceeds $100 million and a cut in state school aid that totals roughly $30 million. The district in recent weeks sent out hundreds of layoff warnings to teachers and staff — during Teacher Appreciation Week — panicking district employees and parents.

‘Electrical hazards,’ other violations went unabated at building where blaze displaced 24 people

Posted May 12, 12:01 PM
By Michaelangelo Conte | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — The owner of a city building where a blaze displaced two dozen residents had unabated fire code violations — including “electrical hazards” — when the Gates Avenue building was last inspected prior to the fire.

Three children were forced to escape through windows when the 3-alarm blaze ripped through the 2.5-story building at 26 Gates Ave. on the morning of April 12.

The building was inspected by the Jersey City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division on Dec. 12 and owner James Garcia of Brick was cited for 11 violations.
