Jersey City won’t give Charles Kushner subsidies, but his brother got them

Murray Kushner's firm got $40M in tax breaks to redevelop Journal Square

The mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, has made it clear he doesn’t want to give Kushner Companies a dime of subsidy to build their luxury residential towers at 1 Journal Square. But he didn’t feel that way about giving money to Charles Kushner’s rival brother, Murray.

Kushner Real Estate Group, the firm led by Charles’ estranged brother Murray, received $40 million for its own redevelopment proposals at Journal Square, Bloomberg reported. That project, called Journal Squared, opened last year.

Kushner Companies expected to receive the same treatment, but that changed last year, as protestors lined up to express their outrage that the city would move to subsidize the family of the President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Newark releases Amazon HQ2 proposal highlighting the city's diversity, tech infrastructure

The New Jersey city released the document after a February lawsuit requested access to the proposal. Amazon is expected to make a decision this year.

by - April 26, 2018 1:59 PM

On Wednesday, the city released its proposal to host the e-commerce giant's second headquarters after resident Steven Wronko sued for access to it in February. The proposal, titled "Yes, Newark," is more than 200 pages long and highlights the city's diverse population, tech infrastructure and transportation systems. It also offers suggested locations for the headquarters and touts more than 50 pages of letters of recommendations. 

The city redacted the financial incentives it is offering the Seattle e-tailer. (Here are parts onetwo and three of Newark's bid.) 

Amazon has been on the hunt for a city to host its second headquarters since September and plans to make a selection later this year. In January, the company unveiled 20 finalists after vetting proposals from 238 communities in the US, Canada and Mexico. The company has said HQ2 will match its Seattle headquarters in size and importance, and the company expects to spend more than $5 billion on the project.

Start dealing with school funding, pension shortfall

Posted: Apr. 26, 2018 12:01 am

The Newton Board of Education earlier this year took the lead in filing a petition demanding school funding distribution as set forth by the state's own School Funding Reform Act.

For years the Newton School District indeed has been woefully underfunded according to the SFRA formula. Newton received just 60 percent of its state aid in the current fiscal year while the town's taxpayers paid 48 percent more than what New Jersey deems its local fair share.

They are not alone. And the tab to address the inequity is hefty.

To fully fund every district according to the decade-old SFRA, the state would need to pump in another $1.5 billion.

That net figure, calculated by the nonpartisan Office of Legislative Services and released this week by the Senate majority office, takes into account a $2.2 billion shortfall owed to 70 percent of the state's districts, reduced by $660 million in aid that exceeds the state formula in other districts.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy has promised to fully fund the formula starting with a proposed $284 million in the next fiscal year, though where that additional money will come from is not clear.

State Sen. Steve Oroho, R-24th Dist., who calls the current formula "absolutely flawed" and has been on a committee to examine the state's school funding, said, "Promises are easy to make, payments are hard."

Back to that $660 million that is "overfunding" school districts.

According to a chart compiled by NJ Spotlight, a news and politics and public policy analysis website, a half-dozen school districts are each receiving at least $20 million more than they should.

The granddaddy of them is Jersey City, which, according to the figures, receives $174 million more state aid than the law, if fairly applied, would allow.

Further irritating the issue, the Jersey City Board of Education recently approved a teacher contract that amounts to an 8.25 percent average raise over two years at a time when the district is facing a $71 million budget deficit and more than 300 layoffs, as reported by news website Insider NJ.

The teacher contract includes a retroactive 3.5 percent pay raise for the current school year, a 2.75 percent hike for next school year, along with stipends to cover health insurance costs -- 1.75 percent of salary for individuals, 2 percent for couples and 2.25 percent for families, according to The Jersey Journal.

That news report cited Senate President Steve Sweeney, D-3rd Dist., as calling the Jersey City Board of Education's action irresponsible, and rightly echoing comments by the only board member who voted against the contract, who said the contract was "not grounded in fiscal reality."

Most in the private sector would likely agree with that assessment.

Fiscal reality is also needed on the state level. Besides finding the $1.5 billion that would be needed to fully fund the SFRA formula -- which in itself is in need of a total do-over -- the state has a much bigger problem as it faces a worst-in-the-country pension funding deficit, by one recent tally at $124 billion.

Oroho acknowledges the challenge and said to get the state on an even keel will take time and discipline.

Agreed. But time is running out, and the state has a very poor track record of fiscal discipline.

Yes, it took us a while to get into this hole, and it's going to take us a while to get out of it.

But it's time to get started.

Hoboken Mayor Doing It His Way: Orders 'Gender Neutral' Bathrooms

The city of Hoboken, N.J. — just over the bridge from Manhattan's skyline — now joins a growing list of American cities passing bills making public bathrooms "gender neutral."

Signs on all city-owned, single-occupancy restrooms, in the town made famous by its native son Frank Sinatra, will be replaced to reflect the change by May 31, just in time for LGBT Pride Month, Hoboken Mayor Ravinder S. Bhalla says.

And, Bhalla plans to take it a step further asking the city council to vote for an ordinance that will make all bathrooms, including those in private establishments, accessible to all gender identities.

Jersey City decides burlesque show not obscene after all

JERSEY CITY — The (slightly tamer) show must go on!

Lillian Bustle, the burlesque performer whose act was deemed too obscene by Jersey City's legal eagles, is planning a new show at Newark Avenue venue FM Wednesday night after the city changed its mind and gave her its go-ahead.

Bustle, 39, called the news "a big relief" and said she hopes this episode encourages city officials to "fully research all the factors on their plate" in the future.

Kushners' Loan for Troubled N.J. Site Backed by Web Lender

April 24, 2018, 4:23 PM EDTUpdated on April 24, 2018, 9:44 PM EDT

The company owned by the family of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner says Jersey City, New Jersey, a Democratic stronghold, is blocking its plan to build two towers because of politics and hinted a lawsuit is possible. Behind the fight there’s another struggle: paying for the project.

The Kushners obtained temporary funds from a web-based lender that specializes in risky loans shunned by other financial firms, Bloomberg has learned. Earlier plans for the project at 1 Journal Square collapsed when WeWork, the workspace startup, left. Much of the development’s financing had been tied to its participation.

Jersey City teachers ratify contract with raise

JERSEY CITY -- Teachers with the Jersey City Public Schools have approved a contract that comes with a pay raise and stipend for those who pay into their health benefits. 

Members of the board of education finalized the agreement during Thursday night's meeting at Snyder High School, just under two hours after 81 percent of teachers voted in favor of the agreement, according to the teachers' union.

The new contract was initially agreed upon last month following a one-day strike, with teachers demanding relief from Chapter 78 – New Jersey's 2011 law that revamped how public employees pay for their health benefits – saying they were bringing home less money despite salary increases.

Ex-Jersey City cop gets prison time for no-show off-duty jobs

NEWARK -- A Jersey City police officer was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison yesterday for getting paid for no-show off-duty jobs in a scandal that has resulted in 11 officers pleading guilty, including the former chief of police.

"This was a criminal act of corruption and bribery committed by a police officer who was sworn to uphold the law," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Vikas Khanna at the sentencing of former Jersey City Police Officer Ehab Abdelaziz, 38.

Exchange Physical Therapy Group & Jaclyn Fulop Team Launch City’s First Mobile Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Program for Local Animal Shelter, Liberty Humane Society

Local small business Exchange Physical Therapy Group and Jaclyn Fulop teamed up with Liberty Humane Society and raised over $120,000 for the non-profit animal shelter to launch Jersey City’s first low-cost spay and neuter program.

Exchange Physical Therapy Group in Jersey City and Weehawken, hosted a fundraiser at local distillery Corgi Spirits this week, and through ticket sales and corporate donations, more than quadrupled its initial goal of $25,000 and is hoping to not only fund the first year, but also create an ongoing donor base for subsequent years.

“When we learned about this situation and that a solution was within reach, we immediately knew we had to help,” said Jaclyn Fulop, co-owner of Exchange Physical Therapy Group. “We have seen the benefits an animal can have, through our therapy dog Chloe, and want to make sure all of Jersey City’s dogs and cats have an opportunity at a good life. That’s what this program will provide.”

Citi Bike Jersey City is closing these poorest-performing stations

JERSEY CITY – Citi Bike Jersey City is moving forward with a plan to relocate more than 15 percent of its docking stations, leaving nearly all neighborhoods south of Communipaw Avenue without access to the bike-share system.

The decision, which was announced last week, will remove eight of the least popular stations, including those at three light rail stops, a state college, and a community center. While officials have not announced where exactly the stations will be moved, they are expected to be brought to areas with higher ridership. A majority of the system is located Downtown.

Netflix Cancels Crime Drama Seven Seconds

By

Seven Seconds will not be getting a second season on Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant decided to pass on telling another story in what would have been an anthological crime drama. Regina King starred in the 10-episode series, which centered around the death of an African-American teenager who was killed by a Jersey City police officer in a hit-and-run. The plot follows the cops who attempted to cover up their crime, the investigators on their tail, and the family left devastated by the loss of their son. The first season told a complete story, so if the show had a second it would have followed a completely different story with some characters and Jersey City remaining as the constant. At least fans got to see King’s character see her story through to the end.

Eli Manning Sells Hoboken Condo, May Be City's Priciest: Report

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning sold his waterfront home in Hoboken for $3.55 million, a report says.

By Eric Kiefer, Patch Staff | Apr 17, 2018 5:32 pm ET

HOBOKEN, NJ — New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning recently sold his waterfront home in Hoboken for $3.55 million, a sale that may be the highest that any buyer has paid for a condo in the city's history, reports say.

The sale price of $3.55 million beats out the previous highest, a $3.3 million home at 216 Bloomfield Street, a Douglas Elliman spokesman told the NY Post.

According to a listing on Realtor.com, the home – located at 1500 Hudson Street in the Hudson Tea Building – was "off market" as of Tuesday.

Teachers to vote on contract with 6 percent raise

Jersey City teachers will receive a 6 percent raise over the next two years if they ratify a contract that has already been agreed upon by the union and school district.

Teachers in the 29,000-student district walked off the job last month saying they need relief from Chapter 78, New Jersey's 2011 law that revamped how public employees pay for their health benefits, has decreased their take-home pay despite salary increases.

A copy of the contract obtained by The Jersey Journal indicates teachers would receive a retroactive 3.5 percent raise dated back to September, when the last contract expired. They would receive another 2.75 percent raise at the beginning of next school year.

Jersey City is wrapping up a $38,000 review of its police and fire dispatch services, a longtime goal of Public Safety Director James Shea that is being conducted by a firm with ties to the man who got Shea his current job.

Princeton-based IXP Corp. is performing the study, which Shea has said will give him an idea of how efficient the city's 911 system is. The company's senior vice president is Adam Safir, son of Howard Safir, a former New York Police Department commissioner who led the search to hire Shea in 2013.

Lillian Bustle, whose burlesque career has come under fire by city attorneys who say her shows may be unlawfully obscene, rallied her supporters to urge the council to amend the law, which dates to 1982 and was apparently intended to keep strip clubs out of the city.

Jersey City becomes alternative to New York, but without the 'sticker shock' in prices

Jersey City becomes alternative to New York, but without the 'sticker shock' in prices

  • Jersey City is raising its profile as an alternative to New York City, given its closeness to the Big Apple and more reasonable prices.
  • New buildings like 99 Hudson offer luxury living at a fraction of the cost.
  • Yet some say Jersey City could easily go the way of Brooklyn, which itself was an alternative to Manhattan until everyone began moving there.

Real estate prices in New York City have cooled but remain astronomically high, so Jennifer Tobias, a senior designer at the Studio Sofield design firm in lower Manhattan, found a nearby refuge.

Located just across the Hudson River from Manhattan's West Side, Jersey City is being touted by some as the latest alternative to New York City's torrid real estate market. It's where Tobias joined a growing number of area residents who find Jersey City more affordable when compared to its more famous neighbor.

"My apartment is a 310 square foot studio in a 28-unit building," Tobias told CNBC recently. Her unit cost $195,000 when she bought it in 2007, and she said that its current value is $312,000.

"A similar apartment in New York City would easily cost twice as much," she added. Her residence faces Van Vorst Park, which has a farmer's market, Shakespeare performances and outdoor movie nights. A wide range of restaurants and bars can be found within an eight-block radius, and the overall cost of living is low.

Lawsuit targets Fulop's action on 'Bayonne box' homes

Four companies seeking to build residential homes in the Jersey City Heights want a judge to declare Mayor Steve Fulop's home-demolition executive order invalid.

A lawsuit the four have filed against Jersey City says Fulop is not permitted to halt all demolitions, an action the mayor has said was an effort to curb the construction of so-called "Bayonne boxes." The moratorium, which applies to all one-, two-, three- and four-family homes for the next six months, is causing "irreparable financial harm" to the plaintiffs, the lawsuit alleges.

Hudson County sues makers of opioids, alleging negligence and fraud

JERSEY CITY — Hudson County this week joined the growing list of public entities suing opioid manufacturers, alleging the companies spent decades convincing the public that their drugs are safe and downplaying their addictive nature.

The drug manufacturers and distributors named in the suit — including the Sackler family, owner of Connecticut-based Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin — have destroyed communities and left state and local governments to pay much of the cost of treating people addicted to opioids, the 139-page lawsuit says.

Group wants new highway leading to Jersey City Waterfront

JERSEY CITY — A plan dropped online last week by a mysterious new commuter group is reviving an old idea to reduce traffic congestion in Downtown Jersey City: a new mini-highway leading to the Waterfront.

The proposal, floated by something called the New Jersey Commuters Alliance, says a new parkway built into the Bergen Arches rail cut would take motorists headed to the Waterfront off the notoriously car-clogged highways that lead to the Holland Tunnel.

The city faced criticism for putting an end to the show, which was going to star burlesque performer Lillian Bustle. Even Mayor Steve Fulop appeared to take his own legal team to task, calling them "very prude" on Twitter.
