This is a huge loss for the average NJ pedestrian. If you walk everywhere in the city, as most of us do, you note that the auto drivers can get away with just about any sort of bad intersection behavior. Without the cameras there will no doubt be a spike in poor driving behavior all over the state. I get that there were legitimate problems with the system but as a pedestrian I don't care. All I care about is my right to cross the street without having my life put in danger for the sake of some auto drivers convenience.


No it's not, most people come to a stop and go once it is safe and the only reason the cameras were making money was because people were making right turns. I remember hearing that because of the cameras accidents had actually increased and also the towns had made the yellow lights shorter in order to make more money which also leads to more accidents.

Why not something that doesn't appeal to such a small demographic, like a Chipotle. I wish Chipotle would go into the franchising business so I could open own in DTJC and make a killing.

But you can argue that during the time Shundler was mayor Jersey City was up and coming and needed, not what it is now since DTJC has become good enough to stand on its own. But I just want another party that can fight back against the Democratic political machine but that may be just pipe dreams.

Re: Considering a move from DT to JSQ or Heights - any tips here?
#96

Home away from home


JSQ is the better investment IMO since both developers and the city have started to invest heavily in the area and they're better transportation options than the Heights. Also you will see that real estate agents are listing homes for the same or more money than pre-recession prices in the Jeights while you can get some deals in the JSQ area. Schools suck in the entire city so you're better off sending kids to private school to get a good education.

A lot of people in Downtown view the Path as an asset, but more and more it's starting to look like a liability. We need new ways of connecting Jersey City to Manhattan. Unfortunately building tunnels and bridges is too expensive so I know of a cheaper solutionn which is listed below.

nj.com: 7 things to know about the proposed No. 7 subway extension into Secaucus
Home away from home
Home away from home


HASBROUCK HEIGHTS — The Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce has made the news lately for its big, sexy plans for the Sports Complex, which include up to four casinos.

On Thursday it turned its attention to the relatively drab problem of moving people around, announcing plans to study the economic impact of extending the No. 7 subway line to Secaucus.

Here are 7 things you need to know about the plan.

1. What is the plan?

New York City spent $2 billion to extend the No. 7 subway line from Times Square to the Hudson Yards Development on 34th Street. But former Mayor Michael Bloomberg initally envisioned stretching the line through a new Hudson River tunnel to Secaucus Junction.

Bloomberg is gone, but business leaders like Steven Spinola, president of the Real Estate Board of New York, Jerry Gottesman, chairman of Edison Properties, and now the Meadowlands Chamber, have pushed to make the plan a reality.

"If we brought this transit system to the edge of the Hudson River, it would be such a waste to not bring the No. 7 line," to Secaucus, Spinola said.

2. What are the supposed benefits?

Gottesman's company is funding a $65,000 economic impact study being conducted by the Meadowlands Chamber and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. In addition to relieving congestion on the existing Hudson crossings, he believes the line will spur economic development in the Meadowlands.

Spinola envisions 30 subway trips per hour between Secaucus and Manhattan, carrying more than 36,000 passengers.

"We cannot let this simple idea, despite its cost, just sit there and not be moved ahead," he said.

3. How much will it cost?

Past estimates put the amount at around $5 billion, but further study is needed for an exact figure.

And after that, it's not clear where the money will come from. The federal and state transportation trust funds are broke or on their way there.

The gas tax, their source of funding, has been sapped by more fuel-efficent vehicles and a generation that doesn't like to drive as much, said John Robert Smith, co-chairman of Transportation for America.

Congress has passed stop-gap measures to keep the federal transportation fund solvent.

"What we need to have is a long-term solution," Smith said.

4. Where is the plan now?

Again, awaiting further study. Supporters hope it can piggyback on Amtrak's Gateway project, another multi-billion dollar plan that includes two new rail tunnels serving an expanded Penn Station.

Funding for Gateway is also up in the air, but there is some urgency to get it done. Drew Galloway, chief of Northeast Corridor Planning and Performance for Amtrak, said the two tracks serving Penn Station have all the traffic they can handle.

"There's no capacity," he said. "Literally there is no room to add traffic for the three- or four-hour peak in the morning and the peak in the afternoon."

In addition, Hurricane Sandy damaged the tunnels to the extent that they'll need major repairs—repairs that will at some point force Amtrak to shut them down. Amtrak President Joe Bordman has said that time would come in as little as 20 years.

Galloway wasn't as bold in giving a timeline, but said Sandy "started a clock."

"It's not a 50- to 100-year problem," he said.

5. Where did this plan come from?

The idea of extending subway service to New Jersey has been around since the 1970s, when the Yankees considered moving to the Meadowlands. But the Bloomberg administration began seriously exploring the No. 7 extension after Gov. Chris Christie's 2010 decision to terminate the planned Access to the Region's Core commuter rail tunnel.

6. Who needs to back this project?

A soup of transit agencies, at the very least including NJ Transit, the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Port Authority would have to be involved. And that means the project would need the blessing of both state legislatures, both governors and the mayor of New York.

Christie has said he likes the idea. The New Jersey Assembly passed a resolution in support. New York Mayor Bill De Blasio hasn't weighed in. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's MTA "has shown little interest" in the plan. And the Port Authority has other stuff on its plate, to say the least.

7. When, if ever, will this happen?

The results of the economic impact study should come out in the spring, Jim Kirkos, CEO of the Meadowlands Chamber, said.

After that, Spinola said another, $2 million study would be needed to come up with a solid price tag.

Taken together, Kirkos hopes the numbers can help spur political action on the No. 7 proposal. Then, planning, environmental work and construction could push the completion date another 15 to 20 years out.

But Kirkos said that was no reason to move slowly. Construction costs will only go up with time, he said.

"Having only one tunnel underneath the Hudson to move people by rail—it's not going to work for the 21st, or the 22nd century," he said. "We need to be thinking about this for future generations."

Downtown Jersey City is kind of not that good of deal. I can bet you're one of those people who will high tale out of here once you have kids since schools are garbage everywhere in JC. For the type of money your paying, there are better places in NJ that are not that faraway of a commute from NYC and you don't have to worry about swimming in feces!

This topic is so huge. Tell me how arguing about it on JCLIST is gonna help with anything? You know what you can do so that Jersey City does not become a Ferguson? Get off that computer volunteer and help JC especially the blighted parts of the city by mentoring kids. Also telling the mayor to have more cops do walks in high crime areas and areas known to be the target of thieves. Stop bitching and do something about it!
Or you can just be this picture and look like idiots.

I'd like to bring this early statement from Old-Skool to the top of the list again.

Old-Skool, are we supposed to take it seriously, or just supposed to slap our knees and say "that Old-Skool, always making a joke!" ? Because I don't find death threats of any kind funny, regardless of the color of the person who's making them or the color of the people they're made to.

If you emailed something like that to an individual, that person could turn it over to their local police department and have you investigated. You're not as invisible as you think you are on an online message board either. In some cases, it's easier to track someone down from online postings and emails than phone calls or snail mailings. There was a guy who posted false reports of gang violence during Halloween on here about six years ago and he was arrested for it. Here's the thread with the news story about it if you don't believe me:

http://jclist.com/modules/newbb/viewt ... order=DESC&status=&mode=0


Take a little time to look up Rastafarianism. You may not have read past the word "white", but "oppressor" was the objective noun. Old-Skool possibly misquoted- it should have read “Death to Black and White Oppressors” - at least that's what the Nya men believed. But why care about a supposedly defective culture, when it's easier to peddle hate?


BTW, Bob Marley was half white. His father was a Jewish member of the British Armed Forces.

The more this stupid circus show keeps on the more backwards we go in race relations in the United States.
