That's just a cop out from answering the question posed about any official or unofficial policy regarding the publishing of a person's race in JJ articles.

What does that feedback indicate when it comes to the posed policy question vis-à-vis race reporting.


Don't intend it to be a cop-out. The conversation is really about our company's policy and I'm not a company spokesman. I also don't create our policies. I initially wrote that the apparent vandal in the Silverman graffiti story is white but users here are right that that is not our policy, so I changed it. If you're this concerned that not reporting the race of suspects is unfair to white people, you have to take that up with the editors.


Some unsolicited advice.. Don't give much weight to feedback received here. This is a dammed if you do and dammed if you don't crowd, as they say. No one here will ever be happy. On a site note, I do appreciate your articles for JJ, especially on development topics.


Yeah, don't worry. We'll figure out whether it was you or your bosses being hypocritical.

Terrence, does the JJ have a written policy regarding when they will mention a criminal suspect's race? You seem to be implying when there is a picture of the suspect, the article will say it. As others have mentioned, this doesn't seem accurate. But if that is your stated policy then I assume we will have consistency.


I presume this will end the controversy here.


LMAO nothing will stop the whiners


No whining. The JJ and the author have been caught applying a double standard.

While we're on the subject of annoying driving habits of Jersey City residents, what's up with JC drivers who seem to be under the impression that when the light turns green, the car making a left hand turn has the right of way? It's like a game of chicken leading up to the light change between the car that wants to go straight and the car that wants to turn left. Both drivers are watching the crosswalk indicators flashing waiting for the "Don't Walk" so they can gun it the split-second before the light turns green. And god forbid, the car that wants to go straight beats the turning car to the punch (as it should be because the car going straight has the right of way), the driver of the turning car will usually lay on their horn and unleash some profanities, like they were in the right. I've never understood this phenomenon. It's so unique to JC.

My condo assoc was recently approached by a developer to buy our building. He's constructing an apartment building adjacent to ours and if he had our property, he could make a much larger complex.

None of us are sure what to expect.


If the developer is motivated enough, you might be in for a windfall from an "above market value" sale. If you DON'T sell, don't expect much love or flexibility from this developer going forward. Any issues you may have with his development or the tenants therein, will likely elicit a yawn and/or little urgency.


Wow. So it's "sell or face the consequences"? Maybe he'll drink their milkshake.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I would hazard a guess that you don't have children; a business that is product/equipment intensive; a job outside the reach of mass transit; and/or care for a sickly/elderly parent or relative. Try any or a combination of all. Quite difficult around here without a car. And some folks simply cannot afford delivery/Uber.


Consider yourself "owned".

Cars are going away in cities. At least car ownership is going away, and the notion of relying on cars is going away.

Jersey City instead of spending resources on improving infrastructure, improving service, and expanding public transit into underserved neighborhoods, is proposing an expensive project to expand a road into a PARK. A park.

This is problematic, and literally the opposite of progressive.

JCman8, I think you're missing my point. Jersey City is drastically different than the rest of New Jersey, in that there are many neighborhoods where people live carless. I know in NJ you need a car, but Jersey City is drastically different from the rest of NJ and that is my point; that Jersey City is trapped in a state that doesn't really "get" urban living.

The catering to the vehicle is what caused Newport to become a depressing place. I don't want the rest of Jersey City to feel like Newport. People gravitate to places that are pedestrian friendly. Pedestrian-friendly and car-centric cannot easily co-exist.

The uproar over the pedestrian-ization of Newark Ave is a microcosm of the problem.

I’ve been saying the same thing for a long time. People in Albany and Rochester and West Chester use cars. That doesn’t mean those in Manhattan need them too. The reality is that we, as a city, need to strive towards that.

So you think everyone who lives in Jersey City has a 5-20 minute walk to the PATH train/Bus and then has a quick walk or transfer to where they work? You think every resident actually works in NYC? You think everyone works regular hours? Think about how naive some of you people are about other people's lives.

Looks like the person mentioned that "Unless you work in the suburbs"...

The reality is that "car culture" is not a good reasoning. There are plenty of people I know that don't own a car. Then, when they need to take a long drive, they'll rent one.

Saying that everyone in an urban center needs a car is just absurd.


Well your reading comprehension is off. I never mentioned endorsing "car culture" nor did I say I work in the suburbs. I work in a business, film production, where you have to report to locations all over the NYC area at very early hours. If I can take the train, I do but that isn't always an option. Brooklyn at 5:00am? F-That, I'm driving.

It's obvious that cars are not going away. In any case though, it would be nice if NJ, NYC and it's boroughs did more to promote the using of scooters. They obviously take less space and are easier to park etc.

Last summer, while crossing with the light at 6th and Jersey, a woman driving North on Jersey decided to scoot around the traffic to make a right. She was not stopping for anything and we were forced to stop in the crosswalk as she nearly clipped us. Too bad for her and excellent for us the car immediately behind her was an unmarked police car. Sometimes the bad drivers get what they deserve.

Sorry, but that's not the case. Working with developers doesn't mean that every single zoning restriction, noise regulation and parking regulation gets thrown out the window. I have no idea how that building was zoned previously, but they aren't going to turn every block of Erie Street into the equivalent of Washington in Hoboken.

Refusal to build causes its own problems, most notably in terms of density. For example, San Francisco has severely curtailed high-rise development, while over the decades demand has gone up. The result is skyrocketing housing prices.

Errrr... what?

Cities are high density. Cities frequently pack restaurants, shops and bars in close proximity to residential units. Heck, the person who started this thread is chewing out people because they can't stand the noise of a bar. This is how most cities work.

Plus, your idea of mall culture is... Talde? Where is their next restaurant opening, the Willowbrook Mall?


Quote:
The desire to be around more people, more crowds and have more things to buy is not endemic to city dwellers but instead to suburbanites.

lol

OK, granted, around half of American cities have similar densities to East Coast suburbs. However, Jersey City is nothing like Houston (talk about a suburban wasteland) because developers put in taller buildings and put in restaurants a block away from a major commercial street.

Nor do people move to lower-density suburbs, with houses several times bigger than in urban cores, in order to be around more people and more crowds, and have less stuff.


I think people like yourself would enjoy St. Mark's Place or 46th Street or Macdougal Street in Manhattan. It brings the best of "B&T Crowd/Mall density" to the big city. Hey maybe JC will get that casino and you'll have the best of garbage culture all jammed together.

If a casino developer proposing a casino in the northeast compares the project to the casinos of that southwest city, you know he's a snake-oil salesman.

Want to see what a casino in Jersey City will look like? Take a look at the Parx in Philadelphia or some Harrah's out in western PA. There will be no jet-setting NYC tourists trying to recreate their summers on the French Riviera. There will be 300 lb. old ladies on Little Rascals with oxygen tubes in their nostrils double-fisting Winstons.


Exactly this. It's hilarious when people write things like "targeted demographics" and "developers are promising". Oh it all looks so good on paper.


You do have to admit that this developer stuck to his chosen demographics when he developed Liberty National. Which tells me that his casino will likewise be targeted to the well-to-do. The high rollers will get golf privileges, I am sure. This will not be targeted to the riff raff - that will be the Meadowlands. How successful this plan will be is another question.


As long as admission to the casino is $500,000 we should be fine. YEAH RIGHT! Old folks gambling away their SS checks and new immigrants who think that appearing to be a "high roller" is the American way. Casinos are garbage culture.

I cannot believe the city allowed a bar/restaurant that is so loud to be unleashed upon longtime residents in what was once an innocuous police building. That Carrino's is a travesty and the city should have to pay for soundproofing and new windows for the local residents. Or else force Carrino's to keep their doors shut and the patrons inside.

When I first moved to DTJC in 1988 I lived in the building next to Salon X, formerly Freddie's Deli, on 7th Street. We would often hang out and drink beers on the roof and from that vantage point we could see the guy who lived in Vladimir's building pacing back and forth for hours on end. He was rumored to be Vlad's brother and also a former victim of the Gulags. He would smoke and pace, walking towards the back kitchen and turn around and disappear from view toward the front of his apartment. It was chilling really. Vladimir had never said boo to me until recent years when he would nod hello while out and about. There are a few people from the neighborhood still around after all these years, we don't necessarily "know" each other but we have seen a lot and there's a quiet connection we all share. Vladimir was one of those guys. He was a character and he will be missed.
