50% wouldn't be so bad. Who gets to decide which 50% actually gets developed? If they just redid that shitty Path station I'd be happier but I also like to see those trolleys.

Journal Square Development and the JCRA
#32
Home away from home
Home away from home


I found this list of videos in the JCRA web files. The top two are promotions of the future of Journal Square development. It's either brilliant or the biggest load of crap. What do you think, can we expect the City to put in trolleys, a new light rail stop and a massive greenway that starts at the Path station and ends Downtown?

When I read the book, I didn't think much had changed in Jersey City from the time Stapinski was little and when the book was published. That was sad. I'm finding the short documentary on Vimeo to be more interesting than the book was. If the full documentary is made, I think it'll be the first time for me that I can say that the movie is better than the book.

It would require a change in your association's master deed, approval from the State of NJ, and permission from all the mortgage holders who have loans in the building.

Hands down Rustique pizza is the best in the entire city. I love love love it. I wish they'd open up one in the Square.
I don't blame them for cutting out deliveries that take a long time. The food can get cold and the delivery people don't make any money while they're sitting in traffic. F's up the rest of the delivery schedule too.

I walked past a construction site for that new tall building behind Shoprite and there was brick falling OFF the building.

I talked to a woman with a baby stroller to warn them, I (and I think she) called and complained to the city etc. They put better signage up to make sure pedestrians cross the street but the problem is the brick was over on the side where the sidewalk is. The site has since moved on from doing the brickwork but this post on the other lax scenario has me re-think my walk to work.

I saw you just after this happened. I was driving up Marin Blvd and knew from the looks on your faces that it was serious. You were looking around trying to see if anyone at the job site could do anything about it. I'm glad to read that you stopped the woman from entering the danger zone and that you found someone else who cared enough to do something about it. I have to wonder why it took you, just a regular guy walking down the street, to get something done about bricks falling from construction sites. Where was everyone else who supposed to be doing this stuff?

You must of been talking to an idiot - Occupational Health and Safety is serious business and a union rep will start to seek voluntary compliance from the construction co, then if that fails, they go directly to the authority and shut the place down until the safety hazard is fixed.
Once again do your homework Yvonne, shutting down an unsafe site is VERY easy to do. There is always a back-door to positive union involvement, as most if not all sites are made up of sub-contracting firms that can be spoken to off-site regarding safety of their staff on a particular non-union site! A simple question to them is "are you prepared to send your staff to an unsafe work site and now that you have been enlightened of those safety concerns, your ignorance is none and void of accountability if something happens to your staff there?"

Yvonne must have been talking to an idiot in the City? Hahahaha

The City should probably fix the problems with it's own website before it branches out. Like the JC Economic Development post that says Lady Liberty is in NY.

i guess the solution for some would be halt development


Only so many people can fit on boat before it sinks and there is no quality of life if you cannot take the trains to work at a decent time. There are people who get up at 5:30 am to make sure they catch an early train. What is the point of urban living if you are spending more time waiting to get on a train. I said in the past, we need more stations and another affordable ferry system. I have been saying this since the 1990s. Constantly building without providing services is just plain silly then have the mayor call out the PATH just adds to, "It is not my problem" routine.

You don't take the Path, do you? No one has to get up at 5 in the morning to get to Manhattan via the Path and it doesn't have any boats, so there will be no sinking.

Yvonne, if you believe that Fulop shouldn't encourage development in Journal Square as a way to cure the overcrowded PATH service, you'll want to get a better clue about what works to make a community healthy. Fulop is doing the right thing, calling the PATH service for what it is: shitty. There are thousands of people who agree with him. Don't get distracted by a commonly used word like 'shitty' and go use your energy complaining to the Port Authority about their service. Maybe you can get them to fix it.
That being said, I was disappointed when Fulop left out some of the other unique things that make Journal Square so special. He could have have mentioned Little India, Mana Contemporary, Art House Productions, the Apple Tree House, Old Bergen Church, St. Peter's University, Hudson County Community College, Moteleone's Bakery, Philippine Bread House, Prince Pizzeria, and Astor Bar and Grill and that funky hot dog place next to Lowe's Theater that sells hotdogs at 8 in the morning.

Oh yee of little knowledge, there are several parks in Journal Square: The triangle SIP Park outside of the Culinary Arts Institute with it's cool water feature and well done landscaping, LaPonte Park, Boyd Mc-Ginness Park, part of Lincoln Park, and the one that's outside of #11 School, the oldest continuous operating school in America. That one's not the best but it is a park. There are two new parks in the works. One at the corner of Montgomery and Bergen Aves. being built by St. Peter's University and one that'll eventually be behind the Path Station. Someone told me that Reservoir #3 is technically in Journal Square but I'm not sure if that's true.

There are plans in the works for the Apple Tree House with community gardens and a museum.

Journal Square also has six banks withing walking distance of the Path Station which has transportation to all parts of the City and to Newark Liberty Airport(with a transfer).

No other ward boasts a University and a community college within walking distance to the Path Station.

Add to that the Loew's Theater, the incredible food and shopping in Little India, plus the new thirteen screen movie theater on Montgomery, and I think we have the other neighborhoods beat for best transportation available, the quantity of restaurants, and recreation. Well, maybe not recreation, but it's not as bad as it could be.

Below is the link to the Hudson County View expose on the Akil "Non Profit" "More Than a Race"(MTR). In August 2013, 3 months after the mayoral election, letters were sent out by MTR to multiple donors who gave very large donations to Akil's MTR. Although Akil's MTR had it's "Non Profit" status revoked by the IRS, MTR told the contributors that it had tax exempt status and donations were tax deductible. Among the donors were:

1) The Decoitis law firm: over $7,000.00 contributed. This law firm subsequently secured up to a $500,000.00 contract with the Jersey City MUA.

2) MCE, an engineering firm: over $3,700.00 contributed. This firm subsequently received a contract from the Jersey City MUA worth several hundred thousand dollars

3) "25 Senate Place": contributed a $1,000.00. Shortly thereafter it received a tax abatement.

John Thieroff the former campaign manager for Mayor Fulop is a trustee of Akil's MTR and he is also a commissioner on the Jersey City MUA.

Gerald Balmir is a Hudson County Freeholder and is also the Chairman of the MUA. Akil was Balmir's campaign manager during his recent run in the democratic primary.

Richard Moon is the Executive Director of More Than a Race (MTR). Mr. Moon is also the owner of the house on Arlington Avenue in which the "Secret meeting with CERF" was conducted by then Councilman Fulop and his hand picked BOE Members. Interestingly, when Mr. Moon was asked if he had attended that secret meeting he told Jersey a Journal Reporter Terrance McDonald he "could not remember".

http://hudsoncountyview.com/radical-p ... med-akil-raise-questions/


So it would be safe to assume that Richard Moon is also full of shit? He let's people have secret meetings at his house and he didn't remember being there?

We should see if our mayor has a spine.
There's a post from Veronica Park on NextdoorHamiltonPark today that invites the general public to buy $150 tickets to a turkey fundraiser. Fulop is going to be honored and past press says Fulop distributed the turkeys. There's no mention on the invitation or on JCYouth's website that JCYouth is a non-profit organization. I couldn't find anything on it with the IRS. Do you know if I just missed something or is the group not a non-profit?

That's near Soliel Lofts, the new thirteen screen movie theater and new 10,000 square foot grocery store that St Peter's is putting in. It's walking distance to the PATH, five banks, the post office, Prince Pizza, and two pretty decent fruit and vegetable stores. If you like vinyl records and homemade chocolate, you've got Stans Records and Lee Sims Chocolate right around the corner. It's a great neighborhood. I've been here for three years now and love it much more than the Heights. Good luck with your decision!

Technically Jesus wasn't white and there are writings about his love relationship with a couple of the apostles and Abraham Lincoln was a slave owner who didn't become an abolitionist until he recognized doing so was the only way to win the war. But the Pope is the antichrist? All white people have a little Hitler in them? Sheesh, how did Akil become smart enough to stay employed by City Hall? Oh wait, this is Jersey City...

Akil runs MoreThanARace.org whose Executive Director solicits funds to send underprivileged youth to camp. The address given on the solicitation letters is 230 7th St. which is a house owned by Veronica Park. Veronica Park runs Jersey City Youth Foundation, www.jcyouth.org. They claim to distribute blankets and turkeys to underprivileged youths in Jersey City. Veronica Park raises money for Mayor Fulop's political war chest. It seems strange that the Mayor's Chief of Staff runs an organization that lost its non-profit status yet solicits funds that are sent to the house of the Mayor's chief fundraiser. Even more strange is that the thank you letters sent to the donors who made those contributions shows an address of 317 Pacific Ave in Bergen Lafayette which is owned by the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency. A lot about this doesn't seem right.

Of the average $1 million in grants/contributions they bring in yearly:

$600k went to salaries for 2011 and $609k in salaries for 2012

TheWrathOfCane wrote:
As a long time reader largely timid of contributing to the petty hostility on this forum, here is a simple sum up. A city beureacrat who did not run for office returned to her home on 9/11, llikely after a long day of work, and lost her cool with non-residents who make noise into late hours and throw garbage onto her doorstep. Curious as to why she was there? Google her name and you can find her address through a particular public info webpage, and you'll see it's her home. She's an employee that nobody has ever heard of until now, who only is getting attention because the typical drama hounds on jclist have considered this the latest great thing.

For those of you who have been grandstanding on this, and arguing for why she should be placed in the public stocks, here's where you dropped the ball. Myself, and numerous others who live in this city, initially didn't think this was the type of behavior that should occur from a public employee off hours, particularly given Fulop's earlier statement. However, you've taken it to such a far stretech in your search for blood, that your agenda is beyond transparent. This isn't something that a beureacrat needs to get fired for. It's something that, at best, requires a verbal reprimand, which has more than likely already occurred as of Monday at the latest. She wasn't caught urinating on a concert crowd or driving drunk. She lost her cool with people who are a nuisance right outside her door.

Think that isn't what happened? Take a look at the Faceook profile of the guy who shot the video. A picture with a guy blatantly smoking a blunt. Take it from there. This was a self indulgent crowd that has no care for the community where they decide to party. Yes, she lost her cool. But, the discussion of why she did it, and why she needs to be beheaded, is completely absurd.

Frankly, Yvonne, and the rest of you jackals that have chimed in on this, you are part of what makes claiming to be from Jersey City so embarrassing at times. Your hate is transparent. Your pettiness and ignorance in your pursuit of being some form of local hero makes pre-schoolers look like a bastion of maturity.

Seriously, shame on you. I'm waiting for this to finally die so your lot can go back to cheering you having to rant about possibly having to bake cakes for gay couples who want to marry.


Well said!

The Masonic Hall on Hutton St in the Heights is romantic, very reasonably priced and has a kitchen and dance hall for parties. It's a complete surprise once you enter it. There's also a venue at historic St Paul's in Bergen, behind the Hague Building. Here's a link: http://www.stpaulsjc.org/ The pics on their website don't show how pretty it is inside, it's worth the trip to see it.

Former Mayor Heally was photographed with his weewee exposed while in a drunken stupor, across the street from an elementary school no less. He then told the newspaper that it was the fault of some little Spanish girls-not women-little girls, but no one asked him to resign. Now someone who no one knew existed a few days ago may have gotten drunk and ranted about the pigs who dirty our City and shes being beat up for it. Get over it.

Today I took the PATH train to check out the pedestrian plaza. I loved it. I visited Natural House at 159 Newark that has a small but good juice bar and had an asthma shake. It was good and was almost half the price of Subia's around the corner. I also visited Tender Shoots Farm across the street for the first time. They carry wine grapes and organic coconut oil along with a lot of organic products. I'd definitely go again.
