So tell us, how often are you at the south end? Sounds like never. Land in the middle is not a replacement for the waterfront. When I launch my kayak there I'm always astonished at the number of people who drive there and just sit in their cars taking in the view. Not my style, but it's PUBLIC ACCESS to a PUBLIC ASSET.

This has a lot in common with Trump removing protections for western lands. Taking public assets and giving them away to private interests.


And you know they will have to take away the free public boat launch there... that grove of trees is the only tree sheltered cookout spot for families. The northside marina is just a congested mess in the public walkways.

I am curious to see Liberty National's take on this proposal... I know years ago Tiger had to park his yacht over at the marina @ Battery Park. Would they want an active marina, this proposed size next to them?

Jersey City hires law firm to fight new Liberty State Park plan

Jersey City hires law firm to fight new Liberty State Park plan

Updated 12:03 PM; Posted 11:19 AM
State plans for marina in south side of Liberty State
By Ron Zeitlinger
The Jersey Journal

Jersey City is not sitting back and waiting to see how the proposed development of Liberty State Park plays out.

The city announced this morning that it has hired the law firm of Riker Danzig, Scherer, Hyland, & Perretti, LLP to protect Liberty State Park against the development of a new marina.

The Jersey Journal reported last week that Suntex, which operates Liberty Landing Marina on the north side of the park, has a proposal before the state Department of Environmental Protection to lease 45 acres of the the south side of the park to open another marina; and to expand the existing marina by 10 acres.

"Once again, the Christie Administration has proven their utter disregard for the importance of public parks in New Jersey," Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop said. "This development is one that would drastically change the landscape of one of the state's best public parks, and to add insult to injury, has progressed up until this point behind closed doors.

"This lack of integrity has become business as usual, and this time, one of our best public assets will suffer unless we as a city fight back."

City officials said the law firm will pursue legal options against the proposed marina, citing a misalignment between the proposed use and the original purpose of the public park, as well as safety concerns for residents and local wildlife.


The contract with the firm is not to exceed $25,000, according to a resolution on the agenda for tonight's City Council meeting.

"We are immensely grateful to Mayor Fulop for delivering the legal resources necessary to protect the south side of Liberty State Park for the public to continue to picnic, fish, walk and enjoy unblemished views of the New York Harbor freely," Greg Remaud, deputy director of the NY/NJ Baykeeper, said in a statement.

Sam Pesin, president of the Friends of Liberty State Park, has been vocal in his opposition to the proposal. He organized a rally in the park on Dec. 2 to show state leaders the immense local opposition to the plan.

"The Friends of Liberty State Park and all supporters of the park as a local, state, and national treasure with open space and priceless open vistas, are very grateful to the Fulop administration for his determination and dedication in stopping this destructive marina plan from going forward," said Pesin, who made details of the park proposal public after making an Open Public Records Act request for the plan.

Liberty State Park group holds protest of state marina plan: 'The people own this park!'

More than 100 residents, activists and local officials came out to the public park to protest a plan the state is mulling to add a marina to the south end of the park.

The park may be the most-visited of the state parks, but according to reports Liberty State Park loses hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. In early 2015 the "Liberty State Park assessment report" was developed and submitted to the state DEP as part of Gov. Chris Christie's "sustainable parks" initiative.

Last year the Friends of Liberty State Park and the city fought a plan to allow commercial barges to be installed on the Hudson River adjacent to Liberty State Park. The plan was eventually scrapped.

I go to get my oil changes there - is the air free and outside - or do you have to ask the mechanics for an air hose?

Exactly. The fact that Stillinjc has excited heights tells you all you need to know about their argument. These issues are incredibly complex and are going to require a lot more thought than it takes to jam a massive tax break through congress in days just so you can appease your donors and have a "win". They won't be solved by one "team" "winning" in this endless political super bowl we seem to be engaged in.

I'll even agree with part of Monroe's point - there do need to be limits on immigration. However, unless we are willing to start paying triple for our groceries, it is unrealistic to think you can just shut off well-established labor flows. Jargon and selective imagery is great for political rallies. Governing is much more difficult and requires thoughtful consideration.

Re: Rich Boggiano JSQ/Ward C City Council
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Thanks for helping me win re-election: Boggiano

Thank you to all the people who braved the cold and rain to vote in the Dec. 5 runoff election! My campaign was heavily outspent, and I was up against someone aligned with the mayor's political machine, but 60 percent of Ward C voters chose to cast their ballot for me.

This is a couple of strong statements from voters. First, let me state the obvious from Nov. 7: it's pretty clear they like the mayor. I like him, too. Even though we often disagree, we both want what's best for the city. I look forward to working with him in the next four years.

Second, it's equally clear voters want checks and balances on the City Council, which is why I turned down the mayor's offer to run on his ticket. It would have been an easier path to re-election, but I value my independence too much. My biggest donors are family members, not developers. My biggest supporters are volunteers, not a political machine. The only people I answer to are the voters of Jersey City, not a political boss.

I could not have won this election without the blood, sweat and tears of the volunteers who came out everyday since we started campaigning last April. It rained for both the Nov. 7 and Dec. 5 elections, and when paid workers abandoned their posts outside polling sites, my team held their ground and never quit. They showed up to my victory party soaking wet, shivering and exhausted, but wearing smiles of satisfaction from a job well done. You know who you are, and I could not have done it without you.

The next four years will bring a transformation to Journal Square. Rest assured, I will do my best to fight for what I believe is right. I believe in affordability, clean government and working to improve quality of life for area residents. For all the developers out there, if you come to me asking for something, be prepared to tell me what you're going to do for the community. If you're a good neighbor, I'll be your best friend. If not, and you're just looking to make a quick buck on the backs of everyday people, I'll be a thorn in your side for years to come.

Rich Boggiano, Ward C councilman

Re: Today's Package Thief Alert

(From Hoboken - but the woman in the video could be operating in JC)

As the holiday gift-giving season ramps up, Police Chief Ken Ferrante says residents should focus on protecting their homes against a rash of package theft throughout the city.

Just last week, the department arrested Luis Medina, 37, of Jersey City and charged him with three counts of burglary, three counts of thefts, one count possession of burglary tools, and bail jumping in connection with alleged package thefts. He was apprehended in the 1200 block of Clinton Street.

Also last week, a Youtube user posted a video that appears to show a woman allegedly taking packages and mail from a Hoboken building.

And as I have said, if 'we' ever did that, Donald Trump wouldn't even exist. A comforting thought but unrealistic. There is no one criteria for 'best and the brightest' and when it comes to realistic needs, we won't always have a need for those. More than ever, farmers have need for low skill labor. Do you plan on leaving your job to fill that void? I don't think so. There is a reason there is a market for illegal immigration in this country and it's not because we have a desperate need for the 'best and brightest.'

And here's the kicker. The vast majority of countries that chain migrants come from aren't from areas where jihadis live. Hell they're not even Muslim. Talk about a dumb knee jerk reaction.

Window Treatment Installation

Hi All,

Does anyone have recommendations for window treatment installation? Nothing fancy, but would like them custom fit to my windows and not look like an amateur installed them (me).

Thanks!

Yes, I still had to go to the service station for a plug. Having the compressor just gave me enough air to get there without having to change the tire.

Even pointing out that the other 22 of 23 "chain" immigrants aren't criminals misses the point. Think in terms of the millions upon millions who have entered the country through this process - millions of productive people who helped build and grow the country. The miniscule number of people who are used as examples to support all sorts of draconian policies are statistically insignificant relative to the total population of "chain" immigrants.

Don't get dragged into selective and half-witted "whataboutism" arguments. It's just a deflection one uses when they have nothing of substance to support their misguided position.

Let me just add that, in place of chain migration, you sobs want a solely merit based migration? Ok, fine. Lets apply that to Mary Anne MacLeod. She's a migrant from Scotland with and 8th grade education. She wants to enter the US as a maid. I think she fails the merit test with such low prospects and more of a possible drain to the economy, right? While as tempting a prospect that would be for Trump haters, we wouldn't be the country we are now if such a system was in place decades ago. And yes, they were are more lax back then compared to now. Mary would have a hard time and a much longer wait with the current system. She may just miss out on Fred.
