WFT?
Are you serious?
That is the most idiotic statement I've read on here in a long time.
If someone is willing to take the initiative and be proactive in the removal or painting over of the graffiti, why would you be against it?

Waiting for the Incinerator Authority to paint over anything could take weeks.
I live it the Heights and paint over ever bit of tagging I can.
I do everything in my power to make my neighborhood nicer to live in and that means painting over this constant tagging.
It's people like you who complain and do nothing that are the scourge of our city.
Have them arrested? What an idiot.
Try to stop me from not painting over it and you'll get punched in the face.
Get a life...jeez.


Punch me for protecting my property and you'll get painted in the WFT.

Re: Parking Ticket

Just spotted a PARKING WITHOUT A VALID PERMIT ticket on the car in front of my place, but it appears to be correct in this case. JCPA is definitely making its presence known this week.

Oh, also, the only time I've had to go to JC to fight a parking ticket, it was during an evening court session, so I did not miss any work. I don't recall if that was the luck of the draw, or if I requested that somewhere in the process though.

Yes, because in a fight you did not initiate while walking down the street minding your own business, the first thing you are thinking of is "let me just secure my own safety" and make sure I don't go beyond that. Give me a break. I bet you have never EVER had to defend yourself. Your first instinct is HOW DO I SURVIVE AT ALL COSTS.



If I understand this story correctly, the man whose electronic device was stolen was not even in the car at the time of the robbery. He just happened to returned to the vehicle while the robbery was in progress. His life was not in danger so HOW DO I SURVIVE AT ALL COSTS didn't enter the equation until he attempted to retrieve his property.

No, I don't fault him for wanting to retrieving it, or doing what he had to do in order to accomplish that, but survival was not at stake here until he chose to enter that situation. And once his property and safety was secured, he made the correct decision not to make it worse. Don't rewrite the scenario to fit your argument.

I didn't realize there were Street Resident Only parking permits. How do you identify these from typical Zone permit parking?

Is there a map or list of where this policy is in effect?

Re: Flood Zone Real Estate

FEMA may benefit from a map that is vague about the exact height or source of flood damages, but I'd still prefer to err on the side of caution when considering purchasing below ground real estate (which is what this thread is about). Would you feel comfortable purchasing and living in the basement of something that's blue on my map but not yours? I guess buyers coming to this thread should identify themselves as conservative buyers or not before anyone can answer their question.

Of course we all need to be cautious of the data presented to us, both anecdotal and researched. I know you were just using your map as a representation of the actual flooding (which is a bit of a relative term, really), but anyone clicking through should also note that the map "is not a carefully surveyed and extremely accurate presentation. It is intended to provide a visual impression of which geographic areas might be flooded if global warming and climate change continue unabated."

I don't think the map claims to differentiate between major and minor flooding, and minor basement flooding due to storm runoff is still flooding, hence a blue spot. That doesn't make it "wrong."

Anyway, I said it was general info... take it or leave it.

Re: Parking Sign Question
#44
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


It's funny, I was just on that website and was wondering about that sign myself.

If what the responses here say are true (that the two-hour limit addressed in the middle portion only refers to non-permit holders), then those signs horribly worded. The way its currently written suggests that on a typical Monday...

8-10am, NOBODY can park at all
10am-5pm, NOBODY can park for longer than two hours
5pm to 8am, ONLY ZONE 1 PERMIT HOLDERS can park for longer than two hours.

I know that its generally accepted that permit holders can really park longer than two hours all day (apart from sweeping time), but is this actually explained somewhere on a Parking Authority or some other official website?

I lived in JC for 5 years or so and never questioned it, but after moving to NYC and dealing with the intense on-street parking rules, I have to say the JC signs are actually MORE confusing. I mean, what is supposed to indicate that the second part of the sign only applies to non-permit holders? The green color?

The only way to contest it is to go to court and I'm not going to waste my time contesting a $10 penalty.


This happened to me a number of times when I lived downtown on 1st Street. I never once saw a ticket, but received several in the mail with the extra $10 tacked on. Eventually, I decided I had enough and did go to court to contest it.

The judge made a preemptive speech at the beginning explaining he didn't want to hear any ridiculous stories or excuses, and that only extraordinary situations with proof would allow for dismissal of charges. And I'm pretty sure he specifically said "I never received a ticket in the first place" would not be an acceptable excuse. I immediately feared that I was wasting my time.

When it was finally my turn, I went up and basically explained that I would gladly pay the cost of the original ticket (as I likely was at fault on the violation date), and that I was only contesting the extra $10 for yet another ticket I never saw. There were some snickers in the crowd and the judge gave me a dumbfounded look, but he decided to drop the original ticket and the surcharge and only assessed the court fees (which pretty much amounted to the price of the original ticket).

I know it seems like a waste of time, but I imagine if more people congest the courts with this common issue, someone will finally admit there is a problem.

That would really be a good thing.

Instead of spell check letting you know that you have misspelled a word, they should scan for proper grammer and spelling. If YOUR post has a certain amount or percentage of errors, it gets deleted.

This way the adults can have a conversation.

Wow, so all of our local press is so biased that they wouldn't tell the entire story about this dog? I find that hard to believe. If this is the case, though, I'd think that LHS would do its best to clear its name by telling its side of the story. In this age of Web 2.0, it's incredibly easy and affordable for anyone to do so, even an under-funded shelter. But LHS hasn't spoken out and given any details about Sniper. Interesting.


She clearly said the owner didn't fully disclose information and consequently, the information didn't make it to the press. She did not say that local press is biased and chose not to publicize select information.

Now please continue the catfight.

It always infuriates me to read accounts like these. Cops clearly use bystanders to blow off steam. It's even more ridiculous because your photographs had been used to advance the investigation in the first place, and that's the thanks you get.

If you had to do it again, would you continue to take photos and risk the consequences of a physical confrontation, your camera getting smashed, or possible arrest, in order to prove the point?

I assure you I could walk right down your street and show you the houses, corners and places where there are legitimate illegal activities going on right under your noise and you probably don't even realize it. Yet, you pick on and frown upon older men who are really just "hanging out" watching the world pass by. Yes, maybe some have substance abuse problems, and or other problems, so I guess since you have moved in we should get rid of them? Who the hell are you?

The law requires them to obey pedestrian signals and use crosswalks at signalized intersections as well as yield the right of way to traffic if they are not crossing within a crosswalk or at an intersection. Failure to comply with the law carries a $54 fine, plus court costs."



$200, 2 points, 15 days community service, and insurance surcharges vs. $54 and court costs?

It obvious that they're trying enforce these laws fairly.

I don't think I will ever understand the logic of giving a pedestrian the right of way.
