Um, there's a 30 story residential building across the street. When they do have stuff outside it is heard loud and clear by alot of people.

I'm all for them having a dance and entertainment license, as long as the dance and entertainment is primarily inside. For occasional holidays outside speakers are OK, but not every weekend.

Re: Friends of Liberty State Park oppose Formula One Grand Prix in Jersey City

Unlike all those other cities you are mentioning this park is essentially cut off from the city to which it belongs, or at least the part any tourists would stay in. Additionally revenue form the event would most likely have yo go to the State ans not JC as they own the park.

So the visitors stay in NYC, the State gets the revenue, JC gets a traffic jam and bike trail.

The problem as I see it is that the area around the park is not exactly touristy and downtown is not easily accessible from the park. So where does all the money go from visitors? Probably NYC where visitors would stay and take the special event day ferry over to see the race.

So JC fronts the money and NYC gets most of the benefit.

BTW, has anyone heard about bus lanes? I heard something about them being included in the project.

Is there a site with the project plan?

That's true a real city would never have a median on a major road.

Re: 25% Water Increase Coming
Home away from home
Home away from home


I hear nothing but complaints about our antiquated water supply on this board, until they want to raise rates.

The simple fact of the matter is that most of the country (JC included) has been paying below the cost of infrastructure maintenance on all sorts of things, including water.

The cost of putting off repairs and upgrades for decades is sudden and drastic increases when repairs can no longer be put off.

As evidenced by monthly water main breaks in JC repairs can no longer be put off. I doubt these increases come close to actually paying for all the upgrades that are needed.

Re: Did the Census leave out part of Jersey City?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have a friend who works fairly high up for the census and it turns out they use three different vendors for mailings, one for the pre-mailing, one for the forms and one for the follow-up.

I let them know about all the buildings being missed, not sure if that is the reason everything finally showed up or not, but they weren't happy to hear about it.

Would have been nice if the reporter called the census for comment as my impression was this was the first they had heard about it.

As far as we can tell no one at Grove Pointe got their forms, I didn't and neither did any of my neighbors.

That's all well and good until at some point in the future inflation is running at 4-5% a year for a decade.

You can't amend yourself out of idiocy.

Its about time, theres someone in Office who has the B#$lls to stop mass transit entitlement programs.

As soon as cars pay their own way I'll agree. Until then transit is getting the shaft.

Re: Grove Street PATH Escalators
Home away from home
Home away from home


When the heck do people start work that the train is crowded at 9:20?

I get on about 7:30 and have been doing so for 4 months now. I haven't been delayed or late even once. Compare that to driving/NJ Transit or buses and you find that the PATH is way more reliable.

It is a limited line system that runs every 6 minutes, of course it is going to have occasional problems (though as I said none yet for me), just the like the subway or airlines or cars or any other form of transportation.

Suck it up people. Sometimes things break.

Another vote for the Maclaren. Despite the recent scare of them amputating your childrens' fingers, they remain the best strollers for city living. Compact, light, easy to use and now with extra finger protection.

Re: Christie warns cities: You can't look to Trenton for aid

The whole pension issue will eventually come to head, but it's all make believe. The workers are simply not getting their pensions.

They'll get varying percentages based on how long they've been in the system but it isn't getting fully funded and it is the same for pensions all across the country.

Right now they make noises about paying because they don't want to deal with the flak (maybe we can hold out long enough for the next politician to take the fall), but there is no money, there is no prospect of getting more money and no one in the world can invest well enough to make up the gap.

The 'pension deficit' is a joke and the one budget item I am not at all worried about because it isn't being paid.

Sucks for the people I know who are in the government but I've been telling them to plan on not getting paid for years.

NJ actually isn't so bad considering cost of living in the area. Probably doesn't take into account municipal spending though.

Must be lots of places looking to consolidate with JC ;)

This is why we get a double dip recession. The same things is happening all over the country and, like it or not, government is a huge portion of the economy. You can't have it cut back almost everywhere and sustain an expansion.

Maybe it's best in the long run, but in the short term we're in for a world of hurt.

Amy,

I agree that it is boring if you're an adult, but my daughter (2) loves it. It has fish, some animals, a bunch of levers for her to play with and moving pieces all around.

It is just great for her.

Our two year old loves it, and not just the 'kids' area. At two they just like to wander around and look at stuff and it is great with a lot of hands on and moving exhibits.

Go early in the morning if you can, much less crowded before lunch.

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)
Home away from home
Home away from home


They're never going to build a tunnel for pedestrians, and once you put trains or cars in the tunnel they're not going to allow foot traffic so that is out.

It is possible to build a bridge that allows cars/trains/pedestrians, but it isn't going to happen, ever, for a bunch of reasons dealing with available land area on the NYC side, traffic and cost.


Get a kayak ;)

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

As someone who took NJ transit for a lot of years I freaking love the path. It breaks down about 1/20 the amount time that NJ Transit does.

Limited tracks, old system and a lot of trains will lead to occasional outages. As for ways into and out of the city, I can't think of one that is more reliably on time.

NJ Transit, you can and will get stuck at least once a week.
Car, you can and will hit a major traffic jam every other day if you don't commute at 4am.

Ferry? We'll I actually haven't done this, maybe it is better.

Anyway, I've been using the PATH for only a short period of time now (since September), but in that time it hasn't broken down on me once or made me late once. It would have to break down every day for the next two weeks to catch up to crappy record of NJ Transit.
