Green card 'guaranteed' for Journal Square investment: report

Posted on May 20, 2017 at 2:38 PM
BY MARGARET SCHMIDT
The Jersey Journal

Green cards were "guaranteed" for potential mega-investors in a Kushner project in Jersey City's Journal Square, but the "green'' had nothing to do with solar energy, according to a new report on the project.

Rather, it referred to $500,000 from Chinese investors looking to get visas through the controversial EB-5 visa program, The New York Times reports.

Potential investors were told it was a virtual certainty to work, the newspaper said, because of the project's ties to President Trump and the first family.

"They said the president would make sure it came through," the Times quoted Lu Ling, a technology executive in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, as saying. "They said there was no chance it could fail."

How one author got to the bottom of dark family musings about her great-grandmother on a trip to Southern Italy

Helene Stapinski, after examining the crooked branches of her family tree, decided to dig into its roots.

Turns out those were a bit twisted, too.

The result is “Murder in Matera,” a true crime tale with two origins: One in Southern Italy, home to her maternal kin. And the other in a Jersey City kitchen, where Stapinski’s mom regaled her with tales of her great-great grandmother Vita Gallitelli.

What do the Kushners own in Jersey City?

Since 2012, Kushner Companies, formerly run by presidential adviser Jared Kushner, has been scooping up properties in Jersey City. So what does the firm own?

Trump Bay Street
The old Jersey Journal building
One Journal Square
Downtown warehouse
Journal Square office building

And just to clear things up ...
A project that isn't a Kushner Companies venture is the three-tower Journal Squared, located on the north side of the PATH hub. KRE Group, headed by another branch of the Kushner family, is the developer of that project.

Kushner Companies scraps planned Orthodox Jewish community in Jersey City

Had it been granted the $150M bid, the company could have built 8,100 homes at formerly contaminated Bayfront site

May 10, 2017 11:30AM

UPDATED, May 10, 12:30 p.m.: Kushner Companies was the leading bidder on an industrial site called Bayfront in Jersey City that would become home to a planned Jewish community geared toward members of Orthodox sects who are being priced out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

But when Bloomberg reporters asked company spokesperson James Yolles about the bid on Tuesday, Yolles said that the company already dropped any intentions it had to buy the site from Honeywell and Jersey City for $150 million. An unnamed Kushner employee also told the news site that these plans were dropped late last year, but the office of Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said it was unaware of this and has yet to receive any word of Kushner’s withdrawal from consideration.

It’s unclear if the Kushners decided to abandon the project for ethics reasons, but Honeywell, a Fortune 100 list conglomerate, has billions in government contracts that could prove tricky in any dealmaking tied to the Kushners. The development would likely also require federal subsidies to improve the infrastructure within and surrounding the site. “It’s a good sign that they are pulling out,” Larry Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, told Bloomberg. “Though the question is whether or not it’s just because of the publicity or because they actually see there is a potential conflict of interest in these situations.”

In a statement to The Real Deal, Yolles said “a decision was made late last year not to pursue the project because the company was not persuaded by the economics of the deal.”

Last weekend, the company made front page news when White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s sister Nicole promoted a Jersey City project at One Journal Square to Chinese investors. The sales pitch made mention of Kushner Companies’ ties to the White House and Nicole told the audience the project was “important” to her entire family. It was later reported that the project in question is going through a rough spot, losing an anchor tenant in WeWork and at risk of losing a key 30-year tax abatement. [Bloomberg] — Will Parker

JERSEY CITY - A Jersey City fire truck appears to have crashed into the Hudson Bergen Light Rail train in the collision in which four firefighters were injured yesterday.

It appears at this time that the truck struck the train and not vice versa, NJ Transit spokeswoman Lisa Torbic said today of the crash at 7:15 p.m. at Sixth Street near Washington Blvd. She noted, however, that the investigation is ongoing.

Kushner family in Beijing: 'Invest $500,000 and immigrate' to US


May 6, 2017: 2:16 PM ET

The Kushner family hopes to lure investments from wealthy business owners in China with the promise of American visas.

Nicole Kushner Meyer, the sister of White House adviser and President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, spoke at an event in Beijing on Saturday. She was marketing a Kushner-owned property in New Jersey -- invest in the development and get into the United States on a so-called EB-5 visa.
.
.
.
The event was meant to draw investors for 1 Journal Square, a $976.4 million residential and commercial project underway in New Jersey. The company says about 15% of it will be funded through the EB-5 program.

World Trade Center’s $4 billion Oculus springs leak as water drips on commuters' heads

Friday, May 5, 2017, 3:19 PM

It seems $4 billion isn’t enough for a good roof.

The World Trade Center’s Oculus transit hub sprung a leak during Friday’s drenching rain storm.

Photos posted on social media show pools of water on the white marble floor of the $4 billion transportation center and shopping mall.

The leak sent streams of commuters rushing toward the exits.

The Port Authority, which controls the transit hub, did not immediately return a request for comment.

The bird-like structure, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, opened in March 2016 after years of delays and cost overruns.

The transportation hub was initially slated to cost $2 billion.

WTC Oculus Escalator Buckles, Sending 2 Men to Hospital, Officials Say

By Trevor Kapp and Aidan Gardiner | April 27, 2017 8:51am

FINANCIAL DISTRICT — Two men were injured when a World Trade Center Oculus escalator they were riding malfunctioned Thursday morning, officials said.

The men were on the escalator when it abruptly buckled about 7 a.m., according to a Port Authority spokesman.

They were able to walk out to a waiting ambulance which brought them to New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital for evaluation, officials said.

Commuters who need to use the escalator, which is just below street level near the Greenwich Street entrance, can use another one nearby to reach the lower levels, officials said.

Port Authority police and World Trade Center staff are investigating the incident, officials said.

The Tuesday morning incident came about two months after a woman fell to her death on an escalator in the transit hub while reaching over the rail for her fallen hat.

TLC Could Soon Force Uber to Provide Tipping Option

By NY1 News
Monday, April 17, 2017 at 01:35 PM EDT

NEW YORK - The city's Taxi and Limousine Commission wants Uber to require tipping as an option for all rides.

The TLC says a gratuity option on the ridesharing app would help protect the rights of Uber drivers, who complain about declining wages.

Officials say tipping would also improve transparency for drivers to see how their paychecks are calculated.

The move was prompted after the TLC says it received a petition with more 11,000 signatures of Uber drivers who wanted a tipping option.

The commission plans to draft a proposal in the next few months and let the public weigh in on the plan before a vote is held.

Uber says it looks forward to reviewing the proposal and improving their drivers' work conditions.

Escaping persecution, asylees settle with the help of Jersey City church

Escaping persecution, asylees settle with the help of Jersey City church

By Caitlin Mota | The Jersey Journal
on April 04, 2017 at 2:49 PM, updated April 04, 2017 at 3:38 PM

JERSEY CITY -- Tucked away in the attic of a Storms Avenue church, four beds are positioned in each corner of the room. Four men live together in the space and a woman lives directly below them.

Together, they share a furnished kitchen, dining room, and living room complete with a row of computers where they often spend time talking to their families, who are thousands of miles away.

For some, sharing a bedroom with three other men isn't ideal, but for 26-year-old Abu Kassim, his room is more than just a place he sleeps. Kassim, who is from Ethiopia, came to the United States about 18 months ago seeking asylum.

"I don't have any problem," he says with a smile. "We have everything."

Kassim is one of the first five asylees to live at the Church of the Incarnation's "Lighthouse."

The Rev. Deacon Jill Stapleton first envisioned "The Lighthouse" after visiting ICE detainees at the Hudson County jail. Many spent months without visitors and had no living plans once they were finally released, she said.

The church partnered with First Friends of New York and New Jersey to create a transitional home for those who left their war torn and violence stricken homelands for protection in the United States. Those asylees come here with no criminal history.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, an individual can only apply for asylum if they are already in the country or are looking to enter the United States at "a port of entry." The Immigration and Custom Enforcement may detain individuals while they wait for a judge to grant them asylum.

On his flight from Ethiopia, Kassim met Mahmoud Horsa, 36, who like him, was seeking asylum. They became instant friends, first living in detention together and now sleeping just feet from one another at The Lighthouse.

"Not friends," Horsa says of Kassim. "Like brothers."

A miniature Statue of Liberty sits on each nightstand next to each man's bed -- a gift from the church as a symbol of the freedom the United States affords its citizens, they say.

Kassim, though, worries everyday about his wife, mother, father, and siblings back in Ethiopia.

"I have freedom for myself, but don't have freedom for my family."

Horsa had his own shop in Ethiopia, but the constant fear of death forced him to leave behind his business, his mother, brother, and sister. He saved thousands of dollars from his job before fleeing his home. Nearly all that money has been used to pay legal fees and attorneys, he said.

Both men along with their three roommates - who come from West Africa, Honduras, and Syria - take English as a second language classes in their dining room that doubles as a classroom. The men do their homework at a round table in the middle of their room.

The Lighthouse works with the asylees to help them find work so they can find apartments of their own.

While there's currently only room for six asylees to stay at the Storms Avenue church, Singleton hopes other religious groups will be able to find space at their congregations to help other asylees and refugees.

"Even if somebody can only house one or two people, if every congregation and every place of worship did that we would really be able to take care of housing so many people who are coming out of immigration detention," she said.

The Lighthouse has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to provide services for asylees as they transition from detention to freedom.

On Sunday afternoon, the group welcomed the asylees at a lunch. All five were grinning ear to ear as they cut into a blue and white cake.

"I'm so happy now," Horsa said. "I feel so good."

26 New Americans Sworn In At Jersey City Naturalization Ceremony

26 New Americans Sworn In At Jersey City Naturalization Ceremony

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- The United States of America now has 26 new citizens after they were sworn in at a naturalization ceremony in Jersey City Wednesday.

They come from 18 different countries around the world, and they are all excited about pursuing their American dream.

And in the current political climate, that certificate of naturalization signifies not only freedom and liberty, but also security and relief. And swells the heart of Amine el Marrachi, of Morocco.

"I want to say thank you to the United States for giving me this opportunity," Marrachi said. "And I am very happy."

Since last month, immigrants have been rushing to prepare applications to become U.S. citizens. Legal service organizations catering to diverse immigrant communities from Latin America, Asia and the Middle East all said they've been fielding a rising number of calls and questions about how to become a citizen.

"You can speak up now," Rep. Albio Sires said. "You don't have to worry that if you say something you are going to be put in jail."

In light of President Donald Trump's new and sweeping crackdown on the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants, the ceremony eases the worry among many of the news Americans who worked long and hard to earn their citizenship.

"For me, from Colombia, being a Spanish person, it's very important," Stephany Perez said. "Even my parents, they get a little concerned because they're not citizens yet. Just having this gives you a sense of relief."

For years, immigrant advocates have urged lawful permanent residents, also known as green card holders, to naturalize, which would protect them from deportation were they ever convicted of a crime.

Still, millions of eligible immigrants refrain from doing so, citing fear of passing English language and citizenship tests and hundreds of dollars in filing fees.

The 26 people who took the oath of allegiance are just a few of the 25,000 new citizens who took part in President's Day naturalization ceremonies across the country. New Americans now ready to support and defend the Constitution.

Jersey City Residents Ask For ‘No Knock’ Registry To Hold Developers At Bay

February 16, 2017 7:37 PM

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — you’ve probably heard of the ‘do not call’ list, but now some people want a ‘do not knock’ registry.

Many homeowners said they want to silence what they said are constant calls from aggressive developers who want to buy their properties.

Kim Griffin said her family has owned several properties in the Bergen Lafayette neighborhood of Jersey City for more than 50 years. It’s home and they don’t plan to leave despite constant door knocks by developers asking them to sell.

“People have been coming through Gardner Avenue asking, ‘do you want to sell?’ I say, ‘no, I’m not selling, because where will I live,” she told CBS2’s Meg Baker.

Woman falls to her death from Oculus escalator

A woman trying to grab a hat dropped by her twin sister fell to her death from an escalator at the World Trade Center’s soaring Oculus transit hub on Saturday.

The 29-year-old Kearny, NJ resident, identified by law enforcement sources as Jennifer Santos, was riding the escalator with her sister Jessica at about 5:30 a.m.when her sister lost her grip on the hat, law enforcement sources saw.

Santos fell 30 feet to her death onto the main concourse, said the sources. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

“How sad is this? To lose your life over a hat. It’s unbelievable,” one Port Authority worker could be overheard saying at the scene. “A f*****g hat.”

The worker, who was in a supervisory position, claimed Santos’ twin sister playfully threw the hat.

“I don’t even want to think about what she’s going through,” he could be heard telling two colleagues as they stood near the escalator.

Witnesses told The Post that Santos appeared to have died instantly upon hitting the white marble floor — and that the surviving sister rushed screaming to her body.

“There was a lot of blood,” said a construction worker. “That was it. There was nothing you could do. She wasn’t going to make it. “There was a lot of blood, and the way she was laying…”

Her sister was taken to an area hospital, where she is being treated for trauma.

Santos graduated from William Paterson University of New Jersey with a BS in physical education and health for kindergarten through 12th grade and driver’s education, according to her Linkedin page.

She also worked a short stint as a student teacher at the Lyndhurst Board of Education in 2012.

Santos liked electronic music including musicians Nom De Strip, DJ TJR and duo GTA — and she, her twin Jessica and other sister Stephanie Marie are Rangers fans, according to their social media accounts.

She wrote on her Couchsurfing profile that the most amazing thing she’s done was “looking at the Eiffel Tower while in Paris. Absolutely gorgeous!”

“Another moment would be skydiving,” she added. “Never felt a feeling of being alive and badass at the same time!”

Woman dies falling off escalator inside famed World Trade Center Oculus while reaching to grab hat


Saturday, February 11, 2017, 9:54 AM

A woman died when she fell off an escalator inside the famed World Trade Center Oculus early Saturday while reaching to grab a hat her twin sister dropped, law enforcement sources said.

The victim, whose name was not immediately released, fell over the side of the escalator while reaching for the hat and plunged about 30 feed around 5 a.m., sources said.

She died at the scene.

The $3.9 billion Oculus opened in March after years of construction and delays. The strikingly designed white marble transit hub provides connections between New Jersey's PATH trains and New York City's subways and contains a shopping mall.
