Walter Parks & Rob Curto Perform at Cathedral Arts Live Jan. 17

LEGENDARY DUO WALTER PARKS & ROB CURTO PERFORM REELS, SPIRITUALS, AND SWAMP BLUES ON JANUARY 17, 2020

Cathedral Arts Live is delighted to once again host the incomparable Walter Parks, performing with accordion ace Rob Curto on January 17, 2020 at 7 pm. BCB Bank is proud to sponsor this special night of live music at Grace Church Van Vorst.

Storyteller, singer-songwriter and finger-picking guitarist Walter Parks, a Florida native now living in Jersey City, enchants audiences with his creative mix of swamp blues, folk and jazz delivered sometimes in an ambient style and sometimes in a gritty-rootsy style. www.walterparks.com

Rob Curto is an accordionist, composer, arranger, and keyboardist based in New York and Philadelphia. He is a founding member of the band Matuto which was chosen to represent the United States State Department overseas as part of the American Music Abroad program in 2013 and 2015. He has released 4 CDs as a bandleader and is a prolific composer and arranger. www.robcurto.com

The duo's collaboration marks Parks’ third appearance at Cathedral Arts Live. He previously delighted audiences with a solo performance, a reimagining of traditional spirituals with Jersey City singer Vivian Sessoms, and a reunion with Stephanie Winters, his former bandmate from The Nudes.

“Along the path of a serious artistic career, certain situations, places and/or people eventually take us to a crossroads,” said Parks. “In working with Richie Havens for ten years I arrived at this juncture – I could take the route of being good, or go beyond, rising to my fullest potential and embracing, or at least striving for, the excellence that I knew was in me. The latter is a scary choice but satisfying beyond measure if one can deliver the excellence one is capable of. A new sense of pride and confidence empowers wherein raw accomplishment motivates far more than does the ego. Grace Van Vorst Church is such a crossroads, where one is naturally inspired to do one's best work instead of settling for less, for to do so would be boringly evident by contrast amidst such glorious sonic and visual beauty, having been created long ago by fellow artisans rising to their own occasions.”

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Hot food and cold beverages available for purchase. Doors open at 7 p.m. Visit www.cathedralartslive.org to purchase tickets.

Cathedral Arts Live at Grace Church Van Vorst

Unless most of those millionaires were renters, someone (other than Dixon Leasing in one city) is buying all of that real estate. Odds are most of them are millionaires too. What don't I get?

1) looking at just population numbers would not explain away the loss of 5700 millionaires. Those individuals probably did leave the area however there could also have been an influx of new residents exceeding 5700 that moved to the area. What we don't know if those new residents (which exceed 5700 because overall population increase) are or are not millionaires.
2) those "millionaires" leaving the area are most likely baby boomers that are now retiring and moving to warmer areas (e.g. FL or NC). This has been happening for years and will continue to happen. Let's admit, a million is not what it used to be. These retirees can have a million in assets easily taking into consideration their home and 401k. So, I think there is nothing new here to see except that people moving away just have hit the millionaire mark. I'm sure you could have made the same argument 30 years ago using the $500k threshold.

Then who is buying up all of this real estate? I realize the real estate market in NYC and some areas of NNJ have cooled in part. But that's in part because the numbers had reached super, super stratospheric heights. Still, even with the dip, prices are high and people are still buying expensive real estate. In Asbury Park at least 20 units in the Ocean Club sold for anywhere from $1mm to $5mm. Properties in JC are still moving as are properties in the several million mark in NYC. It seems to me there's plenty of money floating around.

This makes sense, but there will be a day of reckoning. Jersey City is the one part of the NYC metro area allowing adequate supply to be built. There is probably going to be tens of thousands of people every year looking to escape the high rents and NYC resident income tax for a more affordable (compared to NYC) option in Jersey City.

Where in NY has been losing population? Googling "nyc population" shows an increase from 8.194M in 2010 to 8.623M in 2017. I am seeing Bloomberg show 8.2M in 2011 and 8.398 in 2018. Both numbers show an increase in population which is in contrast to NY State overall (which Google shows going from 19.58M to 19.54M).

The NY Post article (I do not have a wsj subscription) does not say where the loss is happening from, but it is unlikely from NYC, based on the above numbers. Judging by what friends of mine have been paying to purchase housing in the NYC suburbs, I doubt it is there either.

My presumption is that people are leaving the rural parts of the state for which jobs and the weather (for upstate NY) are much bigger factors then taxes. In the urban areas across the country (NYC, SF, etc) I see housing prices as more of a problem then taxes or other factors, but I doubt cities and towns will allow for sufficient density to meet demand.

Another piece from the JJ series.

Erasure on Avenue E | Legends & Landmarks

Updated 7:58 AM;Today 7:30 AM
By John Gomez/For The Jersey Journal

Editor’s note: This is the second in a series about historic houses of worship under threat of erasure in Jersey City and Hudson County.

Perhaps it is the fractaled winter light radiating from the west that emblazons, amidst rush-hour traffic, St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church on Avenue E and East 25th Street in Bayonne.

Perhaps it is the end-of-decade sunset that gives the church, now nearly leveled to the ground, its phantom appearance.

You know, with all the delivered packages that get stolen in Jersey City, why couldn't this have been one of them? That would certainly be justice for all the a--holes who pull this shit (literally in this case).

Unnecessary drama: “I picked up the diapers and it was a little bit heavy, I was half asleep the lights were off,” she explained. “At that point, I turn on the light and that’s when I noticed these diapers are neatly-folded and they are soiled.

The shocking discovery prompted the mom to immediately disinfect her nursery, even wiping down her 19-month-old daughter with rubbing alcohol."

Shit happens, Nassly. Get your refund from Amazon and move on with life. How is this even news.

NJ family says they received used diapers in nightmare Amazon delivery

Posted: 7:01 PM, Jan 10, 2020 Updated: 7:01 PM, Jan 10, 2020
By: Andrew Ramos


JERSEY CITY, N.J. — It’s a mystery that has rattled Nassly Sales and her family.

The Jersey City mom had ordered two boxes of diapers from Amazon as she does every month for her two daughters, purchasing the items from the site’s “Amazon Warehouse” section, where open-box and returned items are sold at a discounted rate.

When the package arrived this week, she said nothing could’ve prepared her for what she says she found inside.

“I picked up the diapers and it was a little bit heavy, I was half asleep the lights were off,” she explained. “At that point, I turn on the light and that’s when I noticed these diapers are neatly-folded and they are soiled.

The shocking discovery prompted the mom to immediately disinfect her nursery, even wiping down her 19-month-old daughter with rubbing alcohol.

The child, a micro preemie, was born 26 weeks premature, weighing a little over a pound, making her immune system compromised. According to Sales, the baby was just inches away from what she believed was a health hazard.

Speaking to an Amazon customer service representative later that evening didn’t exactly put the family at ease.

“They were like ‘OK sorry for your inconvenience, we will give you a refund. You’re more than welcome to keep the stuff, you don’t need to return it,’” Sid Mukherje, the children’s father, told PIX11.

“And my thought was "Wow, you are not understanding what I’m saying.”

While the family has not officially sent the substance to be tested, they say it bears a strong resemblance and odor to fecal material.

What they want now is a better explanation from Amazon about the mishap.

According to their website, the company inspects and certifies all open-box products before re-selling them, something Sales says obviously did not happen.

In a statement to PIX11, an Amazon spokesperson said "We are investigating the situation and in contact with the customer to make it right."

And the alternative was.....what? The author does not say. A church already doesn't pay taxes, if the parish doesn't need it, doesn't want it, doesn't want to pay to maintain it, and it doesn't lend itself to residential conversion, then...what? The city maintain it as a monument to something? Subsidize it's reuse as something below the market value of the land?

I think there should be landmarks, but not every old building is a landmark. I like to see things preserved, like I'd like to see the Cap1 bank on Newark & Jersey preserved even though it's not unusual for a bank of that period, but I think locking a city in amber can be bad too. There's a lot of economic pressure to increase the density of JC and the similar areas of the outer boroughs, resisting that is one cause of the housing crisis.

Heritage in the crosshairs: Historic Jersey City church demolished

Today 7:30 AM (1/6/2020)
By John Gomez/For The Jersey Journal

Editor’s note: This is the first in a series about historic houses of worship under threat of erasure in Jersey City and Hudson County.


Sunday morning — and the voices and vespers that drifted out of the open oak doors of Grace Lutheran Church for over a hundred years onto the Summit Avenue sidewalk, in the Heights section of Jersey City, are no more.

Instead, an empty lot, neatly graveled with the rubbled fabric of a leveled landmark and fenced in tightly with chain-link, is all that remains.
