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.

Its design is defined by its brilliant arched roof that’s meant to resemble a bird-in-flight. Inside, there are several layers of escalators each situated to end at almost a floating platform, leaving almost nothing between the escalators and the ground below, WCBS 880’s Mike Smeltz reported

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!”

Twin Plunges to Death Rescuing Sister's Hat at World Trade Center Oculus: Law Enforcement Sources

A New Jersey woman fell to her death while trying to rescue her twin sister's hat at the World Trade Center Oculus Saturday morning, law enforcement sources said.

The 29-year-old sisters from Kearny boarded an escalator going into the the World Trade Center Oculus, when one of the sisters' hats fell from the escalator, authorities said.

The source said one twin reached for the hat and fell 30 feet over the side of the escalator around 5 a.m.

Port Authority Police officials said officers responded to the scene at around 5:30 a.m. after the woman fell to the main concourse floor. The victim was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The investigation is ongoing.

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.

Sip Ave and Tonnelle Ave. It has more car traffic than humans. You have to push the button to get a walk signal. Also, I used to have to push the buttons on Warren St to cross Grand, Montgomery or Columbus.

Anyway, this is neat. You can see all the requests.

Thousands Without Power in Jersey City


A power outage in Jersey City has left thousands of customers in the dark.

PSE&G says at least 4,800 customers are without power. City officials say the utility has told them it may be due to a tripped switch.

Crews are on location. It's not clear when power will be restored.

There are streets in Jersey City, that if you don't push the button, and depending on the time of day, the pedestrian walk sign will not change.

Hidden Hospital Costs Leave Some Patients With Sticker Shock

Hidden Hospital Costs Leave Some Patients With Sticker Shock

December 2, 2016 11:30 PM


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Can you imagine paying $15 for one Tylenol, $8 for a tissue or $50 for a tongue depressor?

If a store charged those prices, you’d probably find somewhere else to shop. But as CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported, those are actual hidden hospital fees.

“Seventeen thousand dollars is roughly what you would pay for a decent used car,” Ryan Edgerton said.

It’s also the cost of a handful of stitches and a tetanus shot at Bayonne Medical Center, according to a medical bill he received.

His sticker shock is not all that uncommon.

Baer Hanusz-Rajkowski was equally shocked by a bill from Bayonne for a cut to his finger that didn’t require any stitches at all.

“Nine thousand dollars is a lot to eat for a band-aid,” he said.

“That’s why we are in the crisis that we are in with health care,” said Pat Palmer, who runs a company that negotiates health care costs on behalf of patients.

She said she’s seen it all.

“Fifty-three thousand for the trauma team that never performed one thing,” Palmer said.

You might recall hearing about the $39 “skin to skin” fee for a nurse to hand a newborn to his mother at a Utah hospital. Palmer said that’s just another way to pad a patient’s bill.

She also takes issue with the wording of some hospital bills. For example, would you know what a “mucus recovery system” is?

“That would be a box of Kleenex,” Palmer said.

Martin Gaynor, an economist who specializes in health care costs, said hospitals, just like any other business, need to turn a profit to pay for overhead like salaries, equipment and regulatory compliance.

“Hospitals live and die on sales revenues,” he said. “The total charges, which are like a sticker price on a car, that’s what the hospital asks but not what they actually get paid.”

Gaynor said typically insurance companies will negotiate with hospitals over these “list prices” or “aspirational charges,” as they’re called.

“They get paid what are often called allowed amounts,” he said. “Usually a fraction of the charges.”

Additionally, a spokesperson for Carepoint Health System, which oversees Bayonne Medical Center, told CBS2 that when hospitals have a lot of uninsured or under-insured patients, some costs shift to the private payers.

At the end of the day, both Edgerton and Hanusz-Rajkowski were billed less than $1,000 out of pocket for their care, but still say it was too much.

Downtown Transit Hubs Symbols of 9/11 Redevelopment Efforts, and Excess that Surrounded it

By Jose Martinez
Updated Friday, September 2, 2016 at 09:12 PM EDT

Fifteen years after September 11th, a pair of gleaming new transit hubs built for the Port Authority and the MTA stand as symbols of the push to rebuild Lower Manhattan.

But both arrived years later than planned, and with far bigger price tags.

The Port Authority's nearly $4 billion PATH station opened in March.

The agency's own executive director has called it a "symbol of excess," which is a sentiment echoed by critics.

"And had we to do it over again, especially with the dire transportation infrastructure needs that the Port Authority and the region have, I think we could have found a way to do it for a couple of billion dollars, had a fitting building and put that additional money into other transportation infrastructure," said Port Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye.

"I think we were indulging an architect rather than investing in transportation," said Mitchell Moss, the director of the Rudin Center for Transportation.
The MTA's $1.4 billion Fulton Center opened a block from the Trade Center site in November 2014.

Construction of that station also ran behind schedule and over budget.

Both stations were largely paid for with federal funds.

FIOS is at the Grove Street Farmers Market. You can talk to them in person.

How come the cable companies here are not in the mall? That would be so convenient.

You can, actually - I do it all the time. Walk through the atrium, take the steps at the east end up, go through the glass doors to connecting passage with the odd pod-shaped retail kiosks through what looks like another exit. Stay to the right, there is an escalator that takes you up into the Corbin Building; take a right onto John Street, or a left into the Fulton Street hub and you'll end up on Broadway and John.

It's a pleasant walk - I especially appreciate bypassing the traffic Armageddon that is Broadway and Park Place/Centre Street in the morning. It is atrociously laid out though - you go through several zones which look like the end, there is very little directional signage. The return trip you have to do entirely on instinct - there is NO signage for the WTC transportation center or the PATH until you are actually in the atrium, and you need to walk through the Fulton Street transit center back to John Street to take the escalator down, otherwise you can only get to the subway platforms, not the connecting platform.


Got it. Thank you. When I took a look last week, everything was monochromatic and a blur. All I saw was turnstiles and what looked like bars. I went there today and the bars were probably the wall panels on the right side. It was an optical illusion. Another stupid design.

From the Fulton Center, you have to go to the lowest level, below the uptown train. Look for Downtown and Brooklyn.
