Without those lights on, the street lights and the new lights they have that stay on all night in the park provide enough for these kids to stay out there. I don't think turning off all the lights in the park at night is such a good idea if only for safety concerns.

I know, can't have it all ways, but if the park hours were enforced this wouldn't be an issue.


Under NO circumstances should those park lights be turned off at night.
That is asking for lots and lots of trouble.

100% correct on the park hours being enforced. There would be no issue what so ever!

The basketball court has been packed with guys enjoyng it every time I've been down there, so that shows that there is a need for it.


If there was a whore house in the middle of HP, it would be packed every night. That doesn't mean there is a need for it. If Lady Gaga decided to have a concert in HP, it would be packed, but that doesn't mean there is a need for it.

Parks always have basketball courts, yes I agree. But the basketball court in HP is too close to peoples' homes. Simple as that. I even think the kids' playground is too close to peoples' homes. The screaming and yelling by all the kids gives me the chills. BUT, those kids are usually not still outside screaming and yelling once the sun goes down.

Not that the 10pm park closure is enforced, but even that is too late.

And also, the park shouldn't need to be closed at 10. All we need is some kind of noise ordinance. AND the damn cops to enforce it.


Actually there is a noise ordinance, the park does close at 10pm, and the cops will enforce it if we bitch enough.
The problem is you can't part bitch. You cant have the cops enforce part of the law and not the other ( park closeing at 10pm.) So the kids can scream and I guess who ever wants to use the park after 10pm can do so also. In other words the dog owners. And before I get attacked, Yes I am a dog owner and yes I do use the park after 10pm. BUT... I would give that up and walk on the side walk for no screaming in the middle of the night!

I agree, it is a unsanitary habit to allow animals into a food and beverage establishment. I am surprised the health department is not involved because the restaurants can be reported and shut down. I have been in some places where the dog has got in my way and also made contact with me, hairs and all. I see signs posted in the windows of some Jersey establishments as well as those in the city stating no animals allowed by orders of the Dept. of Health. You have to think like an insurance guy and worry about the what ifs.


Who said anything about allowing them inside?
Generally "Dog friendly" means out door seating. If your going to sit out side believe me the " hairs from pups" are your least worry in some of these places. Bugs, car fumes, and squirel hairs are more likely to end up on you or in your meal.
Maybe the health dept. should do something about that.
WHATEVER
I would worry more about what it is your being served than dog hairs flying around.

Amy;
Sorry if I was not clear. Use of the park should be free. I am referring to use of the tennis court, dog run, basketball should be for a fee; one fee for all. It could be $15.00 per year. The point is that the fee will pay the salary for someone to be there full time to enforce the rules. I have seen this done in public parks elsewhere in NJ and it works great. The fee also permits you to bring free guests. And stops out of towners from getting membership.

I will gladly pay $50.00/per year to have an attendant enforcing the rules. But this city is so messed up that you would prefer to have a police officer who makes $80,000.00/year standing there all summer enforcing the rules.

$20 X 500 memberships = $10,000.00 a nice summer job.

A police officer standing around all summer = a waste of taxpayer money.


Nice thought BUT... Big but.....
My friggen tax hikes this year alone paid for more than enough. You ask me to pay for a dog run or tennis courts and I might @#$#$%^&%^ you!! I would have agreed if the politics in this city were even half way honest but they already have us property owners pretty locked up

Have not read thru the thread so I don't know if some one mentioned it already but Michael Anthony's is dog friendly on their pier. Was there yesterday and there were a few well behaved pups enjoying the weather with their owners.

That's an understatement. There were bottles scattered all over the grassy areas around the court. The court is a blight. Also, there is NO connection between "Martino" and the people who litter. It's like asking me to talk to speeders on our city streets. Ain't gonna happen. Just organize a clean-up crew. Anything else is like p*ssing in the wind. On a good note, the garbage cans in the other areas of the park were heavily used and the dog-run is spotless.


Great idea lets do it!! Tell me where to sign up! The basketball court was really a mess last night and I have a feeling it is not going to change unless we have an organized neighborhood crew putting in some effort and maybe keeping an eye on things. Those kids are hard to train and I know I just don't have time to teach respect to anyone. If we dont become part of the cure than we become part of the problem.
On another note:
I love the park and am so happy to finally have it back as a part of this neighborhood. I am not looking forward to the new "miniture golf" going in across the street, but that is a whole diffrent subject.

Does not phase me one way or another about other peoples pups. My dogs had gone with me a few times to the old Ale house and one time one of them took a poop right when I was about to bite into my burger. Needless to say ( they are on a raw diet and their poop stinks to high heavens)...... My appetite went right down the poop shoot and I am sure that the couple sitting next to us did not appreciate the stench either. Kind of embarrassing so they stay home from now on. YUCK.

Been a few times. I really love the way the place looks I think they did a great job on the re-face.
I have had both good food and service and bad food and very very bad service.

If they keep the prices they have they need to make the food amazeing. I dont think I would frequent it as much for dinner but I am willing to splurge for drinks and apps on weekends. Especially during the summer.

I love both Marco and Pepe and the light horse. When I go I expect that I am going to have a good size bill comeing at me, but I also expect that my food will be excellent.

This place needs to decide what it wants to be. Hope they get it together soon. It is a great addition to the neighborhood and I would hate to see it go away!

If Marco and Pepe can make it on Grove Street this place can make it in Hamilton Park.

First of all, why didn't you speak up 3 years ago when I was being accused of making up that story? Secondly, I never insisted it was a lie. I was the one being called a liar!! People said that I made the whole thing up so your memory is a bit off on that one. Also, you could have spoken to the newspaper anonymously and at least cleared up the cloud that hung over the facts. Also, I know that you treat your dogs very well but the person I speak of, who doesn't post on this site anymore, treats their dog like a nuisance. They are hardly in a position to be critical of other dog owners. I respect your opinion but I believe you are over stating the real facts about dogs in Hamilton Park. It really is not a big problem and certain people are just trying to whip up hysterical reactions. In any case I am glad that I am finally exonerated.


I was asked NOT to speak to the paper the very last minute by the owner of the dead doxie and by the walker of the dead doxie. I am pretty sure you know why. With milli- seconds to make a decision I caved and kept my mouth shut but spoke to a detective instead WITH the doxies owner and walker. I tried very hard to get them to press charges to no avail!
I have nothing against you, your dogs, or your family, we just have diffrent opinions ( and I respect yours very much) You have never bothered me neither have your dogs. You have control of your dogs UNLIKE some others.
And yes I do remember now that people said you made it up as they said I made it up. It was a horrible thing for me to see a doxxie get picked up like prey and be killed. It could have been my little guy beacuse I was standing right there talking to the walker. But once again this is a seperate issue. Whats going on in Morris Canal Park has nothing to do with HAmilton Park

Oh I almost forgot.... My passion comes from the ignorance of the off leash dog owners. Click on my name and look at previous posts.
Vigilante stop being so angry your going to bust a vein!
That pitt bull situation has nothing to do with my passion.

Both those dogs were off leash. Both of them were irresponsible.

Agreed. At first it was nice to hear a voice advocating for the dogs, but now you are starting to sound a bit off-kilter. What gives?


It's interesting that the person who first told me 3 years ago about a pitbull killing a daschund puppy in Hamilton Park is one of the big voices now on this subject. That person then refused to talk to the cops and the press when we needed them most. That pitbull and the owner eventually fled the area without paying compensation or being fined. Instead of tackling the real problem, one aggressive dog with a bad owner, they tried to spin the story and make it about all the dogs in HP. They and some others tried to use the story of ONE bad dog owner to cast suspicion on all the other dogs and owners in HP. There are others too who are influencing our councilman. If you dog lovers out there saw how one of these persons in particular treated their dog you would be appalled. These people have been working to try and exert their control over all things Hamilton Park. (Did I oppose the BB courts? Yes, I think they add more chaos to the park than any other aspect. I have no political influence though. It was just my opinion). These people have the ear of our counilman though and they will do anything they can to control and compartmentalize HP. If the dogs there in the past were so menacing and over-running the park then how was it that there were 5 to 6 cricket games going on all over the park? How was it that the kids always had soccer and baseball practice without problems or incidents? There is no army of sunbathers waiting by the gates of HP shaking in fear. Anyone who wanted to could sunbath there and there were never any problems. These people have created a climate of hysteria about dogs. I have never seen a dog go after a child in HP. In fact, I have only seen the opposite. Children insisting on petting dogs and pulling their tails while parents stood nearby and did nothing. No problem though. There has always been a harmony in the park and things have been fine. Are there bad dog owners? Yes, just as there are bad parents. The subject of dog owners not cleaning up is a COMPLETELY separate issue. It goes hand in hand with LITTERERS. IMO all litterers should be shot.


Once again this is NOT about Hamilton Park. As far as the pitbull and Doxxie I myself was the one who witnessed it and spoke to the authorities about it. Your info is wrong ONCE AGAIN Vigilante. Just beacuse I refused to address it with you and everyone else in Hamilton Park does not mean that it was not addressed. It was taken care of and done so with out the gossip and interfearance of every nosey dog owner in Hamilton Park. The authorities got my statement but as you know since it was a delicate situation with the people involved they got it away from the public eye. So stop spreading rumors that are NOT true. You are such an angry human being Vigilante. Get over it!!!And FYI the pitbull and owner did NOT get fined beacuse the doxxie's owner did NOT want to press charges. Once again stop spreading rumors. Anyways you were the one that kept insisting that the story was a lie. Think before you type and open that mouth of yours.

The safest place for a dog to be is leashed by its owner's side. If Vigilante insists on letting his pet roam free, he is no advocate for dogs.


OH so true I heart JC.
I think Vigilante is just angry that options are being made difficult for him in Hamilton Park and that he will need to SNEAK around if he lets those dogs off leash. There are to many dog owners that just don't want dogs running around and he is out numbered. It's kind of sad if you think about how he thinks.

Really??? You find it curious why a park is busier when the weather is nice? I wouldn't know, as I dont frequent parks in the middle of winter. Based on your post one would assume that in the middle of winter the park is chock full of kids. I am a dog owner and I do let my dog run at Morris, it is a great place to do so. That said I only do so when the park is relatively empty early am or late afternoon.


Really!!! You only let your dog run when the park is "relatively empty early in the am or late afternoon" So your saying it's okay to break the law at those times, or that the people that are there at that time dont mind your dog?
There are so many things wrong with your statement but I'm just going to keep it simple and say that you are just palin 'ol WRONG!
There are leash laws in Jersey City early in the morning and later in the afternoon.

German Shepherd, 7 years. Good with people, not other dogs. There's an issue we are having with our current walking service regarding inconsistent billing, and random items missing from our apt. There have also been times where we were charged for a longer walk, but I know for a fact it wasn't anywhere near that time.


I would talk to mary ann or Nelson.

I felt terrible for the dog and usually had something less than cordial to say to the owner. it sucks but I'm not going to let my dog be bothered or potentially put in a situation where it feels it needs to bite.

last weekend i saw a cop sitting in his car watching the dogs run off leash for about 20 min without doing anything.

Then you need to get over your self. What part drives you crazy? The part thats true or the part that you just don't want to face? Yes the latest is the park will open for Memorial Day.

And just a note: If you think letting dogs run around off leash in Hamilton park is sane than you need to make a Dr's appointment!
