Hamilton Park facilities

Have there been bathroom facilities in Hamilton Park in the past (of the portable variety)? Any thoughts if the general public would welcome such an addition to the park, or if the city has an appetite to install such a feature?

If it's on Pavonia across from Dickinson it isn't the Island. Maybe Hilltop.

Someone is visiting me in JSQ and I think they inadvertently parked in front of someone's driveway and their car was towed. Anyone know the number to call to retrieve it? Thanks!

I'll add that every Fresh Direct delivery person that has come to my door has been nothing but professional, courteous and fast. They really hustle, and although I always tip they never linger with the expectation that I will do so.

No timeline as to full restoration of service.

Island resident here, also having low pressure issues. Thought it was frozen pipes in the house, but it must be a frozen exterior water line.

This is the organization that does the actual spaying/neutering in partnership with PetSmart: http://www.neighborhoodcats.org. I had requested that they come to JSQ a few months ago and they picked up 10 cats in one evening. Contact Susan and let her know the specifics of where the cats hang out in your 'hood. And if you're happy with their program be sure to send her feedback so that they will continue to get funding from PetSmart.

Re: Can I go out and clean the graffiti off the park?
#17

Not too shy to talk


Don't give up too soon on the Rapid Response. I emailed them last night and the graffiti in my neighborhood was removed before I got home tonight. Unfortunately there was a new tag left in its place so I emailed them again. I file complaints about the tagging quite a bit and they usually have it removed in about a week. It's helpful if you can include a photo.

Regarding the stop sign request, well, good luck with that. Tried to get a new sign and it took at least three months of constant requests. Finally got a new sign, but of course it was the wrong sign.

Re: Public Service Announcement - Raccoons

Not too shy to talk


I spoke with Animal Control the night that I discovered the open-air menagerie and they were more than willing to come over and collect the raccoon, but unfortunately the animals were gone by the time the guy had wrapped up his other call. FYI: they will dispatch someone 24 hours a day. Just call the non-emergency number and someone will get back to you.

Agreed that some of the animals are service-y (much as I dislike stray cats I'm guessing that they keep the vermin population down), but the raccoons will be nothing but trouble.

Ps: I'm thinking of proposing a skunk/raccoon hybrid to be Jersey City's mascot.

I watched something similar on PBS and their intelligence is indeed a bit disconcerting. The fact that I found raccoon poop in one of my planters recently is pushing me to act quickly.

FYI: Raccoon poop is highly hazardous to human health.

Also, how do I post a photo?

Public Service Announcement - Raccoons

Just a reminder to all: Please do not leave any food outside for the stray cats. Last night I walked past a cat, two skunks and a raccoon all sharing a bowl of food. Happy for their camaraderie; less excited about the implications of their bold presence.

If I can figure out how to add an image to this message I will share a photo of their new-found friendship with everyone.

And yes, I will be speaking with my neighbors about removing the buffet.

Re: Journal Square is NOT a Homeless Shelter
#23
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


The bathrooms are in the hallway (which I lovingly refer to as the Homeless Mall) as you are walking towards the Summit Ave exit - it's on the same ground level as the Hudson News.

I have been walking through the JSQ station twice a day, at least five days a week, for a handful of years now and can attest to the occasional nuisance of the homeless population. Although I have personally never been harassed by any of the homeless people (the self-styled Romeos in the neighborhood, however, are a different story) there have been more than enough arguments amongst themselves where I have asked the police in the station there to address the issue so that I can get through the doors unscathed.

I've spoken with the JCPD Community Response Team in the past about this very issue but frankly there's only so much that the police can (or will) do and it usually involves a lot of diligence on your part. At the very minimum you should file a report with them outlining your grievances, and any time you are harassed/threatened you should immediately walk over to the police station and tell them to do something about it. A solution isn't going to happen overnight, but I worked with one of the Response Team detectives to resolve a problem near my house and he worked with the city to get the job done in short order. Any task involving the city means that you have to be on your game and follow up repeatedly.

Disregard this query. After getting additional information it seems that this problem requires both a lawyer and a magician.

Change Property Record?

Not too shy to talk


I live in a property that was formerly part of a condominium, but is now a solely owned townhouse. The property record does not reflect this change, however, and still lists it as a condo. Anyone know if this requires contacting a lawyer or can I get this changed through the County Register?

Thx.

I had the same problem with a pole in my neighborhood after a storm two years ago. I contacted the JC Mayor's Action Bureau (link below) and put them on the case. If there are phone lines attached PSE&G may have to coordinate with Verizon To switch everything over (as they did in my case). Took a little pestering, but eventually it was done. Might help to make a stink about how it could crash into someone's home, injure a citizen of voting age, etc.

It is indeed the lovely garbage train, which is regularly stopped at JSQ, however, the state of Virginia will ultimately be on the receiving end of that train so...upside?

From an article last year on this very topic:
Residents who wish to complain to the Hudson Region Health Commission about odor problems around Journal Square can call Program Coordinator John Demjanick at (201) 223-1133. Hudson County residents can also call the DEP Northern Field Office at (973) 656-4444.

+1 for DJ Street Justice. She dj'd my wedding and was awesome. We met beforehand and I gave her a cd with all my favorite music and she and her partner just expanded on that - she asked a lot of great questions to get a good understanding of what our tastes are and what we would be happy with (i.e. which awful requests from guests should be artfully ignored). She has all of her own equipment if your venue does not, and she and her partner are just all around nice people to have at a party.
