Do we know that Barge Inn/Barge Inn Tavern had anything to do with this, other than this occurring on the block?

Of course the scumbag VNA will try to swoop in and have it shut down using misinformation and NIMBYism, regardless of whether they had anything to do with it or not.

Anyone know of a supplier with a lower rate?


Who did you see this rate with and how long was the term? I need to re-lock my rate as well.

Re: Judge OKs site plan for controversial 'micro-unit' project in Jersey City

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.

It's a frivolous lawsuit. A waste of money x2. VNA is gonna hire attorneys along with the city using tax dollars collected from VNA members.

Fulop is giving out abatements any more. We should be thankful for the ratables. But no. This is why we can't have nice things.


I noticed the nice lamp post that was in front of BattatavCafe is gone. Why isn’t the VNA using these resources to actually fix up and beautify their neighborhood? Do they do anything besides oppose every single development? Let’s not forget how their corrupt board went behind its own community’s back and opened up a secret back channel with the city to modify zoning in certain areas.

This group is wasting money on attorneys and frivolous lawsuits to stop one single extra story being built. Ridiculous

Of course, the assholes in the VNA are pulling their usual dirty tricks and are suing the city to get this stopped. How much taxpayer money is going to be wasted this time on another doomed to fail property rights lawsuit by a NA?

Huh? Are you trying to argue that "policies that discourage car use" is NOT social engineering!?

The very definition of social engineering is "the use of centralized planning in an attempt to manage social change and regulate the future development and behavior of a society".

Any policy enacted by a government entity that seeks to manage or regulate the behavior of society IS social engineering. And, of course, any policy to discourage car use is exactly that: social engineering.





Are you trying to argue 1:1 parking ratios and surface level parking lots everywhere somehow aren’t? Yvonne and the NA’s love to argue that eliminating parking minimums and discouraging car use are some nefarious government plot to infringe in their freedoms to have free street parking for life and that other taxpayers should subsidize their lifestyle at the expense of public transit and pedestrian friendly policies.

You’d better believe that Yvonne will rally the NA and her band of NIMBYs to thwart any Vision Zero initiatives or sensible policies to discourage car use.

You may view these corrections as rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, but other people may be interested in the facts.


It was the decision of the city and the VVPA that decided to pursue legally weak fated appeals after the developer received judgement. Yes, the developer sued the city first, but the dragged out appeals process and hundreds of thousands wasted was all the VVPA.

One can only hope the city administration (and the council) have done their due diligence and ensured this move to rescind the abatement is within the stipulated terms of the contract, including timeframes for claims, etc.

The last few lawsuits brought against the city have resulted in monetary losses in the form of punitive fees, including having to pay the legal fees of plaintiffs.

I am in favor of the city holding developers to their commitments, but I am definitely not cool with the city grandstanding for PR purposes, only to leave the citizens holding the bag in the end.


Every news article I've read in the past two years about legal action against the city were about the city losing the lawsuit, especially when it comes to property and development issues.

We have the reval x 2 (the contractor hired to do the old one and against the state), the robinhood property, One Journal Square's record request, 16 Perrine "arbitrary and capricious" denial, etc...

I don't fault legal consul as they are obligated to inform when there is a weak or strong case. I fault the pols for playing politics with taxpayer's money.

I'm far from an attorney, but trying to define what constitutes "a good faith attempt" to hire locally and to legally prove that the developer failed to do so seems like an uphill battle for the city. Let's be honest - a good faith attempt is wishy washy language. Put in a hard requirement: "a minimum of 40% of the construction workers must be residents of Jersey City." That would be much easier to define and to verify compliance or noncompliance.

Bookmark this thread. bodhipooh is right. This will be another lawsuit where the city is overruled on appeal and the developer is entitled for repayment of taxes plus interest and punitive damages.

Also, is the city monitoring all developer agreements that contain the good faith attempt language to hire locally... because if it's selective enforcement or they are holding this developer to a higher standard than other developers...

The one owns who really make money in this state are the lawyers.


Let's be sure to add the city suing the Bright & Varick developer at the behest of Yvonne and the VVPA. Another case involving property rights the city lost that cost the taxpayers dearly (because a couple old timer NIMBYs were scared of losing their free parking).

Re: Would MTA be a better operator for PATH? And other ideas...

The Regional Plan Association is more or less proposing exactly this in their 4th regional plan: http://fourthplan.org/action/port-authority-infrastructure-bank

They propose merging the PATH with either NJ Transit or the MTA or a new regional authority to encompass all the above, including Metro North Railroad. They also propose reconfiguring the Port Authority to serve as an infrastructure bank and divesting their real estate holdings.

And before the usual naysayers come out, this group carries significant weight with policy makers and many of the ideas they outlined in their last regional plan, put out in the 90s (second avenue subway, east side access, PA bus terminal) are coming to fruition.

It may seem foolish for PANYNJ to sell it off, but given how many empty stores there still are, it may have been wise to let it go.


A good chunk of the 4 billion that went into construction were also earmarked federal funds. As I understand, those funds weren't allowed to be used for anything but head house construction, hence why they went so grandiose and didn't do any tandem infrastructure improvements. (though you can argue we should have gotten much better for 4bn).

Between the sale of the space and the federal money, the PA didn't spend much, if any, money on the actual construction.

She has almost as much influence as an elected official, has single-handedly scuttled sensible parking regulations screwing over the residents of PH, and has forced the city into wasting tons of money on pointless lawsuits to stop development and most recently almost forced the city to waste 300k of YOUR money on a pointless vote for a statue. If some harsh words on an anonymous forum are the worst she gets, she should consider herself lucky.

The JC to Queens commute is not great, with both the PATH *and* the E/R trains getting very crowded.


Several of my clients moved from the garment center to LIC. Honestly, the travel time is the same since I'm not fighting my way to walk 1/2 mile through the crowded midtown streets. So, can JC be worth the extra fare to commute to LIC? Given that an unlimited Smartlink card is $1000/yr, you can easily save that in 2 months of rent over equivalent areas of Queens. Transferring at 23rd street to the F is a snap.

I'll also point out that outdoor recreation opportunities were on that list of requirements. I guess they downgraded it, but getting to the Catskills or Poconos is FAR easier from JC than Queens, one reason we moved here rather than Brooklyn 20 years ago.

I had a client make almost the exact same move. My travel time nearly doubled. So did my travel costs.

"Fighting you way through the streets?" Really?

LIC has also gentrified quite a bit in the past 10-15 years, with lots of housing and amenities already in the pipeline. LIC will be almost completely transformed by the time HQ 2½ is up and running.

Jersey City would be pretty low on the list if I landed a high-paying job in LIC today.
a salary of $100,000 only goes so far. just ask people in sn francisco and silicon valley...PLUS, hq 2.5 is expected to generate an additional 37,000 indirect jobs.....those people will need to live somewhere too. i read somewhere that ny metro population is expected to grow by 1 million over next decade..


1 million in the next decade? Do you have a source for that? The most recent statistic I read, they weren't expecting NYC's population to hit 9 million until 2030...we're pushing 8.7 million in 2018.

No doubt there's going to be a dire, dire need for more housing in all regions of the NYC metro area. Thankfully NYC just passed a measure to get all the old, white NIMBYs off their community boards (term limits), so it should be easier to get more stuff built in the future. Hopefully Jersey City does the same and completely neuters the NA's and Yvonnes in the future.

I don't expect this will have a big impact on JC, though it is plausible that some people who will be priced out of LIC/Queens could move to affordable parts of JC.


Depending on where exactly in LIC they go, the WTC PATH has a direct connection to the E and R lines, which go right to the Queensboro Plaza area. I think the region as a whole will benefit, including Downtown JC, as not every one of those 25k employees is going to want to live in Queens.
