Thanks!

Yeah, that's the number-one thing we heard. We are talking about going back to Lutze next year but expanding more into the parking lot, with them and us adding more food options out near the bike entry.

It is difficult to pin an increase in traffic accidents or traffic fatalities on marijuana legalization. Traffic deaths nationwide increased by 14% from 2014 to 2016, with 2016 being the deadliest year since 2007. So Colorado is far from the only state to see an uptick in traffic incidents.

Colorado's traffic fatality rate per 100,000 citizens is 11.0, which is actually below the national average of 11.6. The highest fatality rates are in Mississippi (23.1) and Alabama (21.3), states that most certainly are not known for lax marijuana laws.

If anything, I'd surmise that the increase in traffic deaths nationwide has more to do with a strengthening economy plus relatively low gas prices. These two factors helped make 2016 the year with the highest number of miles driven in the history of the United States. More cars on the road and more miles driven would logically lead to an increase in traffic accidents.


This is the part where I point out that the bike/walk/mass transit-friendly streets of Amsterdam, where car traffic is limited and calmed by engineering, law, and culture, are far safer, crash-wise, than those of basically every other large city. (Their national average is around 3.4 deaths per 100k—about a third of ours.)

This despite having pot and hashish sold on every other corner, drunk tourists roaming around every night, and a self-reported 2/3 of young people regularly biking while drunk.

The most effective remedy for the dangers of intoxicated driving, it turns out, is not reducing intoxication, it's reducing ... well, you know.

K bai!

Regarding Barrow, there are two little business entrances on the east side, the botanica and the barber shop. But yeah, the rest is pretty much blank walls, with one big vacant lot.

But what you can do is put little micro-business spaces on the sidewalk in front of the blank walls, like little kiosks or spots for food carts, etc.

The sidewalks are pretty wide there, but width won't matter anyway now that the former street area is opened to pedestrians.

Re: Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza Expansion

I don't believe it's at all a widespread phenomenon that someone from elsewhere in the city is suddenly unable to patronize a Downtown business that they love (and a business loses a longtime customer), because of increased traffic, due to the ped plaza.

I know LOTS of people from all over the city who still patronize businesses in and around the existing plaza by car. But hey, maybe it happens in some cases at some times of day ... I can't speak for every individual's experience. The fact that it might happen at all is the reason why changes in traffic patterns should be made somewhat gradually, to allow people and businesses to adjust; indeed having just one block of ped plaza for several years now seems pretty gradual to me.

The bigger problem with the original objection, though, is that when and if it's true, it is treated like the end of the world. It's not. The MOVEMENT of business revenue around the city is not somehow the LOSS of business. People don't stop needing stuff or buying it.

For one thing, what we ALWAYS hear is the one complaint about, say, a Downtown business losing a customer who used to drive there. We RARELY hear about people who discover a Downtown business while strolling a newly walk- and bike-friendly neighborhood, and become NEW customers. That's not something they come to local forums to yell about, because it's not a sore subject for either the new customer or the business owner.

Conversely, in some ways it's GOOD that a person from, say the upper Heights might switch to a similar business closer to home. That's good for the businesses in the upper Heights. Don't they count? We have it on good authority that there are bakeries in pretty much every neighborhood in this city. If they get a small percentage of extra revenue from people who used to shop Downtown, it will help them thrive and encourage more of them to serve very local customers.

This is how great cities have worked for 5,000 years until we started letting car monoculture destroy them: They're big places, but even today they're made up of tiny, self-sustaining neighborhoods, each with their own grocery, dry-cleaner, pizzeria, etc.

I've lived in the back corner of Hamilton Park since 1997, just off Brunswick Street. Before my time, the area was famous for having dozens of tiny neighborhood businesses serving everyone's even more basic needs: the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker. Even as recently as the early '00s—after car culture and bigger stores killed off those markets—there was still a big old dude who would walk straight down the middle of Brunswick Street every Sunday pushing a huge cart, selling fruits and vegetables to all the Italian grandmothers, without their ever having to leave their blocks. It was pretty great, like living in a little Italian village, one might say.

It would be GREAT if more and more people in every neighborhood gradually started shopping closer to home again, by bike, on foot, on mass transit, or via shorter car trips than they're now making. It means less driving, with less of the ills that urban driving brings. It means safer, cleaner, more cohesive, friendly, sustainable neighborhoods.

It will mean some adjustments on everyone's part. It definitely WON'T mean anyone will be unable to buy a nice cake, or sell one, in Jersey City.

Re: Citi Bike
#15
Home away from home
Home away from home


Bike JC's full statement on the recent station relocations is right here:

Bike JC is very sorry to see that Citi Bike JC docking stations are being relocated from large areas in the southern third of Jersey City. As with earlier removals in the northern Heights, the latest realignment is unfortunate and painful for several reasons.

Some of the stations had groups of regular users who are now deprived of service. And several of the stations served or are in or near, underserved communities, and neighborhoods with many lower-income residents, which raises the serious concern that this rebalance will exacerbate the already documented equity gap in bike share systems.

Citi Bike JC’s operators, Motivate, are moving eight of its least-used stations to areas where other stations are already heavily used. We have no doubt this will improve service within those areas, will let Motivate re-balance the bikes between stations with less delay and expense, and will encourage more people in those areas to buy memberships, keeping the company financially sound—and hopefully, over time, allowing it to expand again into a wider area.

This is now very similar to the model of the affiliated Citi Bike NYC, which serves something like 20% of the land area of New York City, including its densest and most transit-friendly areas and, recently, including large communities of color such as Harlem and Bedford-Stuyvesant. It also leaves 80% of NYC without bike share. We believe Motivate when they say that that model is the only way they can operate in a self-sustainable way over time under its current conditions.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t all continue to try for something better. We believe everyone in Jersey City should have access to high-quality bike share. It’s a small enough place that we should be able to support it even in the far north and south.

So we call on the city government, Motivate, and our residents and community organizations to work together, and explore several possibilities:

Public or private subsidy for Citi Bike JC – We all subsidize various forms of mass transit, including trains and buses, through our taxes, tolls, and other payments. Why should bike share be any different? It improves safety and health, moves people efficiently, and is more equitable than expensive car travel—if we make it accessible to everyone. The city should fund Citi Bike JC sufficiently to allow it to expand throughout the city; there may be public or private grants available for the same purpose.

Better discount programs – JC Housing Authority residents are already eligible for discounted $5 monthly membership. But uptake is slow (as it is in NYC), due in part to a lack of awareness and difficulties for people without credit cards. We should do more to promote, expand, and improve these discount programs.

Dockless bike share – Using shared bikes that can be parked without docks, dockless bike share, has sometimes been criticized as untidy, but it also is gaining a reputation for serving low-income communities and less-dense urban areas effectively. Several competing companies are offering dockless bike share
now, and Motivate is reportedly testing its own version. Some cities now host both docked and dockless bike share; Jersey City could be one of those cities.

Government and business employees on bike share — The city government should replace some of its use of cars with bike share for short trips; this would save taxpayer dollars. Both government and local business should offer no-cost or deeply subsidized Citi Bike JC memberships for all employees as a matter of course, as an employee benefit. All these measures would get more people biking in safer streets and pump money into the system.

Business and developer sponsorship of stations – Citi Bike JC accepts sponsorships for docking stations to be located near a particular business or residential development, for the benefit of its employees or residents, and the station is then also available to everyone else. Encouraging more of these—perhaps during the approval process for new development—could help spread and support bike share.

Protected bike network – Some of it is already being planned, but it’s essential that the city build out a complete network of protected bike lanes and other bikeable streets and pathways if bike share is to reach its full potential in Jersey City. Membership in NYC has already benefited from the miles of protected lanes there.
Study after study shows that traffic safety is the top concern for cyclists and non-cyclists and that protected bike lanes, once installed, are safe, effective, and popular.

It's not that, exactly, though I see why you'd suspect that. It's a very real small, moneyed (self-)interest group with a genuine desire to do something monumentally stupid, destructive, futile, and against everything we've belatedly and painfully learned about transportation planning over recent decades.

It's people who want to sell new luxury condos to suckers and rubes who think they're going to have a private driveway from the Turnpike to their homes, avoiding all the car traffic that all us proles endure.

And the scam would succeed, too, if this thing were ever approved, because all the money would change hands before people realized that adding new car capacity in crowded urban areas simply attracts more cars and bigger traffic jams. It's called "induced demand," and is the same reason California spent $4.5 billion to widen a freeway, only to have it jammed up again within a week.

The irony is that drivers would arguably suffer most. Meanwhile, more cars means yet more crashes and violent death, pollution, diseases of pollution and sedentary life, diminished quality of life with more noisy, dirty, shortcutting car traffic, etc., etc., while a precious linear right-of-way, the Bergen Arches, is given at least partially to a form of transit that the city, state, and federal governments are already officially committed to trying to scale back. Idiotic.

If you're looking for a term from the dark arts of PR to describe this ad campaign, it's "astroturfing," a small group of fatcats pretending to be a large, grassroots organization of concerned regular-joe commuters. Yyyyyyeah no.

Anyway, every single person in the downtown neighborhoods, neighborhood associations, the DCNA, Journal Square and its neighborhood associations, safe streets groups, bike groups, mass transit groups ... pretty much everybody, in other words, should call, write, email, and send smoke signals to City Hall and the State House right now and tell them that this heroically irresponsible, selfish and corrupt plan, and this group, need to go away and stay there.

PS: For anyone thinking that this project will provide union/government jobs and/or boost the economy, don't worry, there's a LOT of honest work to be done around here, fixing and maintaining the roads and mass transit infrastructure we already have. But that stuff isn't as easy to give away in sweetheart contracts to your cronies, or name after your dead fixer father, or cut a ribbon for a cool photo op.

Don't be fooled.

Re: Is Downtown JC next? Out-Of-Town Drivers Banned From Using Leonia As Shortcut
#19
Home away from home
Home away from home


Lots of good ideas and analysis in here, trying to solve a real problem.

But I can't help thinking, this is all thinking too small.

Want to cut through a quiet residential neighborhood quickly in a car to get somewhere else, in Amsterdam or other Dutch cities? You literally can't.

Residential streets there have multiple forced turns, in maze-like patterns. Sometimes there's housing right smack where a through street would have run (great though it probably requires long-term planning and zoning changes); other times a formerly through street is retro-fitted with permeable barriers such as big planters, which let pedestrians and cyclists through but make cars go around (we can totally do this in JC, and it's popular in Portland).

In addition, basically every residential street has lots of traffic-calming structures like brick pavement, gently raised crosswalks with bumpouts on each side, strategically placed curbside parking or tree pits on alternates sides to guide drivers through gentle "S" movements (aka chicanes), etc. (we can totally do this in JC and we are already starting to do it).

The result is that locals can get into and out of their home streets easily enough, and they don't mind the slight delays that all of the above causes, because they're slowing down anyway, and because, you know, they live there, so they like traffic to be calm.

Whereas, rat-runners and short-cutters, while they can legally cut through neighborhoods as far as I know, are strongly disincentivized against it, because dealing with each slight delay across multiple streets and neighborhoods really adds up for someone who'd rather zip through. So they just take the few arterial roads instead like they're supposed to—no enforcement or special technology is necessary, and no one is pulled over for being "an outsider," etc.

Of course, the tragic side effects of this system is that top speeds of cars are reduced, leading to far fewer fatal and serious car crashes, while cycling and mass transit are boosted, leading to massive gains in public health and longevity, less air and noise pollution, more livable neighborhoods in general, and so forth.

Which is nice, if you're into that sort of thing.

Re: New owner/landlord isn't cashing rent checks

Home away from home


When my landlord in Hamilton Park wanted to go condo about 12 years ago, I was unemployed so I figured I would have a harder time finding a new place, and I also didn't want to leave the neighborhood.

Long story short, after brief negotiations I got 36 months' worth of my current rent, paid to me before I left. I signed a brief contract agreeing to leave within 90 days, if I recall correctly.

The landlord worked it out with another landlord on the same block to rent to me. A very similar place, more expensive but nicely renovated. I actually got to poke around and get them to renovate the way I liked, preserving some of the older funky features of the place. Still there today.

I know that the "narrower lanes lead to reduced speeds" philosophy is taken as an absolute truth, but recent changes to the layout of 1st Street have resulted in the exact opposite. The southern side of the street between Marin and Provost was modified to remove diagonal parking and parallel parking spots were implemented over the road surface, creating a narrower traffic lane, and yet through traffic has increased in speed and, weirdly, also in volume.


perhaps im misunderstanding but how do parallel spots take up more room than diagonal spots? wouldnt parallel spots instead of diagonal widen the through lane?


You are misunderstanding because I failed to explain it properly. The previous arrangement had diagonal parking that abutted the building on the South side of 1st St. When they decided to do without the diagonal parking, they didn't put the spots along the side of the building. Instead, they painted the spots on the road surface, which is about 7+ feet away from the side of the building.


Interesting, though a small and possibly idiosyncratic situation. Maybe the novelty of the angle parking there (it's a somewhat uncommon sight in JC) had been calming traffic despite the wide car right-of-way? Dunno.

The service, while very friendly, was indeed so clueless on my recent visit that it gave my friend and I time to read the Yelp reviews aloud and chuckle at their accuracy.

She had a burger that she said was just OK, though I liked the fries I stole.

I gotta say, though, I had the stuffed mussels with mild chorizo and big chunks of garlic in the stuffing, and it was REALLY good, and different, and interesting.

I also had the pulled pork sliders. The buns, while very nice in and of themselves, to me overwhelmed the filling, so I kinda ate around them. But the pork was also VERY good, and different, and interesting.
