Just can't stay away


I'm kind of happy it's not coming to NYC. Detroit, Buffalo or Newark type cities (I'm sure there are a ton) which are desperate need of revitalization would be better suited for this.

Disney is still coming to Hudson Sq though.

EXACTLY.

Kudos to Amazon for not letting themselves get smacked into submission.
well, politicians and amzn should have taken into consideration community impact in terms of rising housing costs, packed subways. besides, this was 25,000 jobs over 10-20 years so i think ny will be fine in creating high quality jobs.

It would be constitutionally offensive to take away the statute of limitations. There are alleged defendant's who are dead. How can they defend themselves or be adequately represented? It's incredibly unfair. We still believe in the "innocent until proven guilty" doctrine. A lot of people make false allegations.

By Susan K. Livio | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

State lawmakers will announce on Thursday they have reached an agreement that will repeal New Jersey’s narrow two-year statute of limitations that childhood victims of sexual assault say have prevented them from suing churches and other nonprofits, NJ Advance Media has learned.

The new legislation, which has not yet been made public, will allow a victim of childhood sexual abuse to bring a civil suit up until the age of 55 or seven years after they make “the discovery that they connect the injury to the abuse,” said Sen. Joseph Vitale, D-Middlesex, the bill’s prime sponsor.

But are you seriously holding the VVPA responsible because you don't know what a developer is building? Are you that lazy?

There are better ways to ring-fence the money. For example, the UK has a novel approach which runs a lot of leisure facilities as a non-profit business - plowing back profits generated from broader community-use.

Exactly! You could have filed for eviction a month ago instead of giving away another "free" month.

I assume the tenant's name is on the lease, not the Relief program. Did you at least get a security deposit?

It looks like this project has finally broken ground, crews are in there today tearing up pavement and getting ready for piling after close to 7 years of pointless NIMBYism.

Are there any renderings/pictures of what this project will look like? VVPA has surely seen them by now, but given their site is defunct and they post nothing on their Facebook page, the rest of the community is in the dark as to what's going there.

After 16 Years of Construction, American Dream Mall Will Finally Open. Will it Work?

Shopping malls might be living a nightmare, but New Jersey’s American Dream Mall is trying to do something bigger, better and more entertaining. Will it succeed?

The American Dream Mall—once given a deadline to open in 2014 when the Super Bowl was played in New Jersey—has become the butt of many Northern New Jersey residents’ jokes. It’s been empty for years, little more than a garish, multi-colored eyesore to the drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike.

But finally, after 16 years of starts and stops, missed deadlines, three developers, five governors and a major retail contraction, current developer Triple Five claims the $5 billion American Dream Mall in East Rutherford, N.J., will open its 3.1-million-square-foot center in April. That includes 1.5 million square feet of retail, the largest indoor amusement park in the Western Hemisphere, an indoor ski lift, a DreamWorks-branded indoor waterpark, a Cirque du Soleil venue and a National Hockey League-sized ice rink. Subsequent phases call for two hotels and a convention center.

“There’s a lot that you can see with your eye to let you know this thing is coming soon,” said David Townes, a senior director of retail at Cushman & Wakefield whose office is next to the American Dream site in the Meadowlands Complex.

But even as it nears the finish line, not everybody’s convinced the American Dream Mall will really come to fruition. (At least not on the April timetable.)

“We’ve been told this story a gazillion times,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, who recently criticized the project on Twitter, told Commercial Observer. “I gloss over these dates on when they’re projected to open.”

Parent: "No, you go to school, but you can't go out socially with friends."

Child: "What?! This is the THIRD time you've tried to punish me. You're just HARASSING ME! This is DYSFUNCTIONAL!"

I only wish the Jersey Journal could have reported he depletion of a $70 million reserve fund under Lyles over the past 5 or so years with the vigor they are covering the vote to remove Lyles from her duties.

Of those on the list:

34 are dead

32 have been permanently removed from ministry. Of those 12 have only one allegation against them.

Certainly, one is too many. But again, these are only allegations. Credible, means it's something that COULD happen, not something that did happen.

It seems to me based upon the numbers that have been removed from ministry, the Newark Archdiocese actually acted on the claims when they were really credible.

There is nothing in the report to suggest that any or which of the alleged instances of abuse occurred in Hudson Co. or Jersey City.

It's important to read critically, if you have the heft to do so.

Cops cleared in criminal case are battling Jersey City over back pay

JERSEY CITY — Two Jersey City cops cleared of criminal charges in October are embroiled in a new legal fight over whether the city should have to pay them two years of back pay and reimburse their legal fees.

The cops — Lt. Kelly Chesler and Officer Michael O’Neill — have sued the city to get paid, but the city has called the lawsuits “premature” and wants a judge to dismiss them.

Man in prison for 2007 murder in Downtown Jersey City will get new trial

A man serving a 30-year prison sentence for killing a man inside a Downtown Jersey City luxury high rise will get a new trial after the state’s appellate division ruled that jurors were not told they could consider the possibility the killing was in self-defense.

The appellate decision, which was issued Thursday, means Zia Berisha will again stand trial for the murder of Michael Marro Jr., 39, who was found dead in his Warren Street home on Nov. 6, 2007.

Berisha’s trial attorney’s “failure to request a jury instruction on this defense prejudiced defendant’s right to a fair trial,” the appellate court ruled.

For fourth time, Jersey City school board votes to get rid of superintendent

JERSEY CITY — Maybe the fourth time will be the charm?

The Jersey City school board on Monday passed its fourth resolution since Jan. 31 that tosses Marcia V. Lyles as the district’s superintendent.

The vote was unanimous, with the board’s lone supporter of Lyles, Matt Schapiro, absent. There was no discussion.

The board’s repeated votes to get rid of Lyles come as her allies accuse board members of deposing her illegally.

Secret files opened by 1st N.J. diocese reveal the names of 63 priests and deacons accused of sexual abuse

Updated 10:06 AM; Posted 9:27 AM

By Kelly Heyboer | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com and Ted Sherman | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Under mounting pressure to identify clergy accused of sexual misconduct, the first of New Jersey’s five Catholic dioceses opened its files Wednesday and released the names of every priest and deacon “credibly accused” of sexually abusing a child over nearly 70 years.

The Archdiocese of Newark released a list of 63 priests early Wednesday. New Jersey’s other four dioceses are expected to release their lists later today.

The List - Sickening Amount of Names from Hudson Co.

The first podcast, Swindled, was produced and released a while ago, Long before the two docs. The second podcast, True Crime Obsessed features two fun hosts who in each of their episodes walk you through a True Crime documentary- almost like cliff notes?- and in this case they are doing the Hulu one.

Are you seriously arguing a low intro rate as comparison? Or are you complaining Costco doesn't have an similar intro rate?

Bohdipooh said it very well about the difference. I recall there's one more thing about Costco, they have a cashback Mastercard that adds 2 years to most warrantys of anything purchased with it anywhere.


Minor correction: Costco partners with Visa, not Mastercard. Their Visa card partnership includes additional cash back bonus (bonus ranges from 1% to 4%, depending on transaction type) and it is very much worth it. I get close to $200 every year on just the credit card cash back feature.

As of this writing, Costco only accepts cash, checks, debit cards, or Visa credit cards. In the past, their partnership for credit cards was AMEX. Prior to that (15+ years ago?) it was a Discover partnership.
