Remember the days of NON. Ahh that was the best. I don't think he lives in JC anymore.

Many of the original posters are on www.wiredjc.com. I don't like the Yvonne vs. Anti-Yvonne posts either. It's just sad. But I appreciate the dialogue on certain issues so that I can hear different opinions.

The point is missed, there are more Hudson County residents to pay the county debt which is equal to our debt. The burden is greater for JC residents considering we are facing an uncertain future with the school funding. Even if this payroll tax passes, it will not cover the missing $170 million, taxpayers will still have to cough up the missing funds.

I don't think you will find any thoroughly reliable information or stats on this, just anecdotal information put forth by some people to try and advance and buttress their points.

From my observations from living in the area is that there is definitely a sizable amount of couples with babies or toddlers but very few with school-age kids. In my own building there is only ONE apartment with a school-age kid (that's one apartment out of ~110) and I do think the kid attends a public school. Going by anecdotal information, which seems to jive with what one can observe, it seems like a good amount of the Newport apartments are roommate setups with 3 or 4 people sharing small spaces. The private daycares and preK private schools in our neighborhood (PAD) are seemingly very busy. Overall, I don't see or believe there are many young families living in these so called luxury high rises with school-age kids attending the JCPS system.

To think, idiots like Yvonne and the rest of the conservative trolls that think they're so much smarter than everybody else never understood this. These are the people controlling the NAs and what gets built in most neighborhoods.

Get a life, nicky, stop thinking about me. My life is not your life. By the time you die, you would have wasted precious hours of your life, hating me which got you nothing

Or:

The storm hit much harder than predicted -- it was the worst one-day November snowfall in well over 100 years. As a result, no one was prepared. Not municipalities, not commuters, not transit agencies. Once you had a bunch of vehicles stuck on the roads, the plows and salt spreaders had no way to get through, and couldn't clear anything.

The only way this could have been avoided is if the politicians blatantly ignored the forecast, and committed to expending resources to treat a light dusting like a minor blizzard. At the time that decision had to be made, it would have seemed like an unjustifiable extravagance, and a wasteful one as well.

No one was going to do that. No one did do that. If they had, and it was a light dusting, they would have been raked over the coals for wasting money.

I can’t help but think of the early more fun and civil days when the list was in its infancy. Some may remember the JCList meetups for drinks or food and even a boat ride with the webmaster. There was probably a half dozen of those meetups. There were seemingly dozens of posts every day. Unfortunately, the good ol’ days gradually ceased to be as more people joined and things got nasty. There were several mass exoduses or a cleansing by the webmaster. I was booted for reasons I don’t remember but determined to stay on as this place was the only game in town. Sigh.

Very nicely said and probably expressive of what most readers and posters feel when visiting this site. You can express your concerns to the webmaster (as I have done in the past) and he will step up and speak to it, but the fault lies with the very few antagonistic know it alls who express themselves in sometimes small, mean posts.
They know who they are and so do the people who just want to engage in insightful discussion with others.

I would hazard a guess that outside the forum they're not nice people to begin with.

Does anyone remember that old saying: if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything?

Silence in response to a bigot or name caller is the most effective of tools to stop them in their tracks.

I do hope that the forum continues and grows, but without the hateful spew from the few.

Google will be adding 12k jobs and will probably ramp up their headcount faster than Amazon. Don't forget they're in the Chelsea area, right off the PATH. The World Trade Center still isn't fully built out nor is it fully occupied. We're going to feel the same crunch fairly soon. There will be ancillary effects from other companies looking to relocate to cash in on the tech talent here. Every parking lot in the city needs to be torn up and and high density housing built.

A point I was about to make as well. Hudson County and Jersey City have the same Moody's rating - Aa3, which is a fairly strong rating. That's three notches above the state, six notches above Newark and only one notch below NYC.

I think more need to question why they're driving in a snowstorm. I was supposed to run an errand yesterday afternoon, but I said screw it, it's not an emergency. Too many people think "yes, this is why I have my sexy SUV, so I can go out in any weather!" But those little cute ute's don't have the weight or handling for it, and their drivers don't have the skills.

I apologize, clearly not my intention to start a political discussion when I started this thread.

Back to the topic, I was thinking may we should have list of JC streets to avoid as soon as it starts snowing:

Here is what I can think of :
Newark Ave -> heading west
Montgomery Street -> heading west between Cornelius and Summit
Secaucus Road -> heading east between Tonnelle and JFK
Manhattan -> Heading west between Tonnelle and JFK

Any more to add?
