I’ll take down the statue myself if it means I will no longer have to read drivel like this.

Savio Figaro is a real estate litigation attorney in Jr. Sq. which I used his services for an REO purchase. Corrado in the heights is also good for real estate transactions which I've used but call his office anyway for your issue. Peter Cecinini from Bayonne is supposed to be expert on property tax appeals who might have an idea.

Good Luck.

HOA contracted with "All seasons air duct cleaning" in one of my units. Cost was $55. HOA memo said cleaning is required every 2-3 years to avoid fire hazard. These guys also replace your vents for $20 if you don't have aluminum(per JC fire code)

It's hilarious watching people throw global historical facts at Yvonne and *every single time* she responds with some decades-old provincial local bullshit that nobody cares about. Yvonne's world doesn't extend past whatever Jersey City's borders were in 1972. Stop rewarding her with responses, even if it's high entertainment.

Is Heights the husband of Yvonne or actually Yvonne? It has to be one or the other.

That's right Brat live up to your name. Continue to accept and be oblivious to what's thrown at you. Maybe one day when you have responsibilities and something to call your own you will understand what it means to have a structured life, that is when you get one.

Fair enough Yvonne, I can’t argue with that, but I’d like to hear more about the 350 year anniversary celebration that never happened. Who messed that up? It must be an interesting story.

Does anybody know anything about this place? They opened in place of Banyan on Bright, they're closed all day, but sporadically open at night and cash only. No posted hours, and kind of seem like they're under construction. Have been that way for months.

History and creating historical district designation are different. I was the leading person in the 1970s asking to make Van Vorst Park a historical designation and I regret it. Homeowners who lived there for a long time, lost their homes. People come before homes, plain and simple. But that is separate from protecting JC's history. For the record, I pushed for historical designation, along with my husband, aided with the late Joe Duffy and the late J. Owen Grundy. We did this because Colgate was not a good neighbor, they would buy properties for the sole purpose of knocking them down. They just destroyed brownstones for no reason. It is the reason, Paulus Hook has newer housing than other parts of downtown, Colgate destroyed history.

What in the world are you talking about? Charters get a fraction of district schools and have to pay the mortgage or rent for their property out of that!
. Which is my point, you can’t compare charter school expenditures, or votech, or K-8 with K-12 stats.

Actually, when I canvass for signature, the public already knows the issue. For those who don't I show them the ordinance which is attached. As I mentioned before, there is a difference between renaming a street that has historical significance history in JC and a statue that did not replace an American monument. In 2010, JC did not mark the 350 anniversary of the founding of this city. I think that is wrong. Here is another example, Councilman Boggiano, as an activist before he won his office, try to get a piece of land has a historic site for a park. Historic battles took place there. Instead, the city turned the property over to a private developer. So, yes, Councilman Boggiano is correct and there are other sites in JC that has historic significant. Another example, the city wants to turn over the Apple Tree House to EDC, but for years, it was promise as a cultural site. I could go on to the lost history in this city but it is lost to many people here because the city does not value its own history.

I thought my questions were relevant, but if you’re telling me otherwise, I apologize for misunderstanding.

But to answer your own question, no, I do not want to see foreign memorials to American soldiers removed. However, I would not be opposed should a local government want to MOVE one, assuming it’s not a cemetery. If there was a clear goal in mind that would benefit the public good, who am I to protest? Likewise, who is Mr. Karczewski, and why would you take his side? Was it out of conviction or convenience?

When you canvassed for signatures, did you reveal to anyone that you believe, “Monuments should be about events in America, not another country.” Those were your words and I’m not taking them out of context, but of course you’re welcome to change your mind, take them back, and apologize for misspeaking.

That's interesting. So a guy with many millions in real estate as collateral couldn't or wouldn't just borrow development money from a bank in this era of historically low rates? Either he was trying to wring every penny out of the deal or the banks know why he's not a good risk.
