Yvonne, anyone wanting to jump in front of a train car will do so whether it's elevated or not (if that's what happened). Anyone who does it by accident is proving Darwin. The HBLR probably wouldn't have been built if they had to build it elevated, the cost would have been much more.

While everyone will feel simpathy for the deseased, this is terrible for the conductor. He likely never saw the victim and now maybe st live with the guilt. Just terrible!

Jersey City eyes new affordable housing regulations

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council will consider increased regulations regarding affordable housing, including a requirement that Jersey City residents have first crack at city-subsidized units set aside for low- and moderate-income people.

The measure (Ord. 17-055), up for initial approval at Wednesday's council meeting, would require developers of city-mandated affordable housing units to maintain quarterly lists of available units; start a wait list for people who want to live in the units; create a marketing plan for the units that the city would have to approve; and more.

The city would monitor the units to make sure Jersey City residents were given preference and that they do not exceed the income cap.

Jersey City Brew Club brewery bus trip April 29th (Saturday)
#36
Home away from home
Home away from home


This is the brew club's third bus trip, and the past couple have been a lot of fun so if you're into beer I really suggest you grab one of the last tickets (16 left as of this posting).

Tickets: http://jcbc2017.bpt.me/

This year the club is going to a few breweries in Southwest Jersey. The idea is to visit breweries that aren't as easy to get to from JC, so people can drink a bunch of great beer without worrying about a ride home. We'll also have beer and movies on the bus ride.

Breweries we're hitting:
Resized Image



Ticket sales are a fundraiser for the club, which has been around for about 8 years now and does beer events and other fun stuff around JC, as well as repping Jersey City (and the rest of Hudson County) at beer events, like last year's National Homebrew Conference in Baltimore.

Yes. God forbid the city use this as an opportunity to cut costs.


Interesting you should say that, virtually every council meeting Fulop creates a new job title. That is more money spent on jobs.

I only used Uber Eats when I had a $5 off code to basically equal no delivery fee. $4.99, what a rip off. I usually use FastBoy if they're running a promotion, but between all options (Fast Boy, Uber Eats, Grubhub, Seamless, Delivery.com) you can generally find a discount and it's rarely with Uber Eats.

Takeout takes off: After just 2 months in N.J., UberEATS is expanding

By Joseph Atmonavage | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

on April 21, 2017 at 11:15 AM, updated April 21, 2017 at 1:24 PM

After launching in New Jersey in February with a focus on serving Jersey City and Hoboken, UberEATS announced this week that their food delivery service is expanding into Bergen County.

While the initial launch included Bergen County neighborhoods Palisades Park and Cliffsides Park, the expansion will include Hackensack, Englewood, Teaneck and Fort Lee as areas UberEATS will deliver to, according to a company release.

"Every place we launch UberEATS is different, but across the board we're seeing strong demand from both eaters and restaurant partners," said Craig Ewer, an Uber spokesman. "Our goal is to continue expanding throughout the Garden State and make it possible for everyone to get their local favorites delivered at the speed of Uber."

Jersey City homeowners uneasy as long-delayed revaluation begins

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter

JERSEY CITY -- A five-letter word is causing heartburn in every neighborhood in Jersey City.

Reval.

The citywide property revaluation, Jersey City's first since 1988, is finally underway, with inspectors knocking on doors, homeowners nervous about what their tax bills will be next year and Mayor Steve Fulop urging calm.

Fulop faced a roomful of grim-faced Downtown residents on March 28 to tell them what to expect.

"I know there's a lot of fear because people assume the worst," he told them before adding, "It's going to be disruptive. I don't want to mince words."

You pay insurance according to whether you have a one family or greater. If you house is worth one million or more why have insurance for 1/2 million?

$1200 for an entire house?

I too have Chubb because no one else was insuring brownstones when I bought my house. $1200? Not even close....nor do I think that's a reasonable figure. I'm in Van Vorst but expect those two neighborhoods are comparable.

I stopped by today and have to say I understand why my family in CA love this place. The seafood was very fresh and there was a good variety, and the same can be said for the hot prepared food. I can see myself getting fat from the hot dim sum bar. A great addition to JC.

Curious what people pay in the Hamilton Park neighborhood. I think I am drastically overpaying. We have Chubb. I saw another thread about this and saw some people were paying $1200..

Any details on size of house, broker would be great.

thanks

A man was fatally struck by a Hudson-Bergen Light Rail train as he was walking on the tracks in Jersey City this morning, NJ Transit confirmed.

The man, who NJ Transit say was trespassing at the time of the accident, was hit by a northbound train traveling between the Richard Street station and Caven Point facility at around 8:45 a.m., NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said.

Snyder said none of the approximate 300 passengers on board the train were injured in the accident.

JERSEY CITY -- With just over six months until November's city election, Mayor Steve Fulop continues to best his challengers' fundraising efforts, with Fulop and his five council candidates collecting $154,803 in the first three months of the year.

The amount is more than twice what Bill Matsikoudis, the former corporation counsel, raised since Jan. 1 for himself and Rick Johnson, Matsikoudis' Ward A council candidate. Matsikoudis' team collected $58,017 in the first quarter of 2017, according to campaign finance reports made public today.

Two thumbs up to JCPD (off duty) responding to an emergency on the spot, plus a few other brave civilians, including a young teen w/ his dad lending help. What you don't see, nor reported is the 2 local PDs (Eatontown & Tinton Falls) embarrassingly standing idle during the rescue and the local FD waiting for the recovered body to be brought up the hill.

And that is really the bottom line, otherwise it is all posturing. Trump hasn't really done much with Congress other than give ISPs the okay to sell customer information and erode privacy protections.

Funny thing about that Roman Empire comparison in that they recovered by adapting foreign agrarian methods. I suspect that our economic prosperity will need some of that, and it's already happening right here in NJ. Foreign born entrepreneurs are investing and creating jobs by using mixed automation and skilled labor. Not all of them just go home or send money back, some of them are here to build the next economy for America.

Trump can't take away the program, that would take an act of Congress. He is slowing it down though via his executive powers. Last month, the program where an employer pays extra $$$ to get faster approvals was suspended.

Open borders has supports from both parties. The Democrats expand the welfare rolls and therefore over time, gain new voters. The Republican big donors gain cheap labor.. meat packing employees to discount STEM people. The latter has become a huge racket, turning America's tech employers into a modern version of a Roman Latifundium.

Open borders had a lot of support early last century as well, for similar reasons as above (though no welfare state yet). Eventually though, immigration was controlled via a series of acts of Congress post WWI, with immigration being severely limited by 1924 until 1965. The percent foreign born dropped from near 40% of the population to about 4%. The break allowed for generational assimilation and gradually end a host of immigration induced problems.

She is a blond/yellow and white color.

So all this arguing and pretty much everyone is in agreement that this EO doesn't do a damn thing? Gotcha.

Trump will not take away those visas. He has no financial interest in it. Just as he has no financial interest in 'buying American'. You would have to be a special kind of noob to fall for this lip service, but then again some of you voted for him.
