JERSEY CITY — Plans to relocate a memorial commemorating the massacre of tens of thousands of Polish officers by the Soviet Union in 1940 is facing opposition here in Jersey City and from the Polish Consulate.

The Katyn memorial, a 34-foot-tall monument depicting a bound-and-gagged soldier impaled in the back by a bayoneted rifle, has been a fixture at Exchange Place since 1991. The city plans to put it in storage during a planned transformation of the Exchange Place plaza into a public park, and the statue may not return to its current location.

Just saw a new station on Glenwood between JFK and West Side Avenue by the Saint Peter's Campus. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but the rack really does block the sidewalk given the foot traffic that normally is on that stretch of sidewalk.

Suspicious! This poor man was knifed to death in front of the house he lived in for 40 years at 8 am on a Sunday in front of people going to church. Where the hell is Fulop? He is so quick to send letters threatening fines to people who dont paint their garage doors while a retired Jersey City teacher is cut down in the streets. This is disgusting.

If the teachers strike and she goes to either Dickinson, Ferris, Lincoln or Snyder I would let her stay home that day. If she goes to Liberty or McNair she should be fine.

I was a student during the last strike the schools won't be able to hire enough substitutes to control the kids. All they will do is put all the students in Auditoriums, Gyms and Cafeterias and the kids will quickly realize they run the show until this strike is over.



It appears that may be happening:

(Excerpt From the JJ) ...Teachers at School 11 on Bergen Avenue in Journal Square are chanting similar refrains to their counterparts at McNair.

One teacher reported only seeing four substitutes enter the building. Some parents are frustrated about the strike.

"What can I tell you, it's honestly annoying," one woman said. "There's no teachers inside and I can't drop her off because I don't know who's here."

Re: pre-paying 2018 taxes

NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

WASHINGTON -- New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. and other Democrats on Monday accused the Internal Revenue Service of "naked political payback" for refusing to allow taxpayers to deduct their entire prepaid 2018 property taxes and threatening to step up enforcement of those who try to claim the tax break.

In a letter to acting IRS Commissioner David Kautter, Pascrell, D-9th Dist., and the other Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee said there was no legal justification for the IRS to decide that only 2018 property taxes paid in response to an assessment -- which would cover just the first half of 2018 in New Jersey -- were deductible.

Hoboken LepreCon Today - 100 Bars Open this Morning
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Caitlin Mota
The Jersey Journal



Everyone is welcome in Hoboken, but if you're heading to the infamous LepreCon bar crawl this weekend, there are a few things you need to know.

Police Chief Ken Ferrante estimates close to 250 police officers -- including the entire Hoboken force -- will be patrolling the Mile Square City today as thousands of people dress in green and booze it up.

The event started in 2012 in response to the city banning its annual St. Patrick's Day parade because of unruly crowds, and this year it may be a little less rowdy with the forced closure of five popular bars.

There are, however, more than 100 other bars open for business beginning this morning and Ferrante says police don't anticipate a repeat of December's "violent" Santacon bar crawl.

Jersey City residents protest tax reval: 'You're taking our homes away from us'
Updated 5:51 PM; Posted 4:15 PM

By Corey W. McDonald cmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Dozens of Downtown residents protested outside City Hall today to call attention to exorbitant tax increases they could see as a result of the citywide property revaluation.

Carrying signs and protesting the new assessments that were released last month on their homes, the residents said their tax bills could double or even triple.

"You're taking our homes away from us. People who have lived here for 80 years are going to lose their homes," said Christina Szpala, 55. "The people standing around me are not millionaires. It's not our fault you've built up this city the way you have and given abatements to all these developers. We're the people you're supposed to protect and you're throwing us out."

The recent tax law changes disincentize home ownership due to the changes with respect to property tax and mortgage interest deduction. Additionally the trend on interest rates is upward. Along with a large property tax increases downtown there will be some significant downward pressure on prices.

The question is supply and demand. Supply downtown seems tight still. Will there continue to be more buyers out there? Will people from NYC continue to have JC be an option? A lot of uncertainty right now.


I spoke to a smart real estate friend of mine the other night about this exact subject. He said inventory is extremely tight in downtown right now - and he has not seen a rush for people to sell. Maybe it's early, but he doesn't think there will be any meteoric shift downtown anytime soon.
