Just click on the link below, then click on Name That Show, type in your suggestion/idea then get on their mailing list.

I am not affiliated with this show, just a resident who loves Jersey City.

These parking meters are all over the state of NJ and only the old timers in the Heights have a problem with them. I don't have a problem with them at all.

This is all because Michael Yun wants that job at the JCPA. Michael you are not qualified for the position!!!

No matter what type of system the JCPA uses, these people will find a reason to complain.

These are the same people who refuse to shop at the Sunday Farmer's Market. You should hear some of their reasoning for not supporting it.

Did you see the name under Contact Info? Google it.



The office is still OPEN and they have apartment rentals. This person is looking for an apartment, no need to turn this into a political debate.

You can also call Liberty Real Estate, they have several offices including one in the Heights,

Obviously JSQ was hit by the economy and like everyone else our market value's have gone down. I have basically put it in my head that I would need another couple years before I can (hopefully) regain my equity which is a reality I have to deal with.

What are people's opinions on the JSQ area? Do people know of developments in the area or things in the pipeline.

Let me know what you think.


You honestly never heard of the redevelopment plans for JSQ and you've been living there for 4 years?

Alot of people like Sherman Place, it's near Pershing Field Park in the Heights. It's also near the Central Avenue shopping district but still affordable and quiet.

Ogden is quiet but about 7 blocks from Central Avenue, where the Post Office is plus all the other stores. If you have a car, then it doesn't matter.

This real estate office is located in the Heights and they have rentals.

Yes a park, perfect for the homeless to sleep in. Just make JSQ more comfortable for them.

It is definitely a very transient area, people move in and out, alot of foreigners, single people, homeless, etc. Redevelopment is expected to be completed around 2060 according to the website.

One of the Jersey City Heights Bikers I was complaining about was killed in a motorcycle accident this past Wed. on RT 440. http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... orcycle_is_killed_in.html Today I was walking down Central and I saw 3 kids with the saddest looks on their faces and I asked them what happend? They said their father died in a motorcycle accident on Wed. They were sitting outside his home (Central and Thorne) where he spent alot of time cleaning his motorcycle, listening to music and hanging with his friends. He left behind 2 teenage daughters and 1 teenage son. They looked terribly sad. He told me he belonged to the Hell's Angels group, among others. Several of his biker friends were with the family on Central and Thorne where they have flowers and candles. He and his family live above a business on Central and Thorne. I'm assuming the flowers and candles are there because he spent alot of time there sitting on his chair cleaning his motorcycle and car. The mother and kids still live there. I saw him a few days ago and I would say hi to him on occasion, I also feel terribly sad. SAMMY MORALES RIP Ride with the wind. Sammy Morales Sammy Morales My neighbor says he belongs to the Hell's Angles, Jersey City NJ.

Only in Jersey City can someone get a city job by offering to work for a dollar the first year. And the person is basically admitting he is not qualified for the job and that is why he'll work for a dollar.

Now it's a private agency but it will eventually return to city government.

I had a neighbor once in a condo block, who always complained about noise that supposedly came from my condo.

She then wrote to the condo owners and stated that I would dial my own home phone from outside, and leave it ringing for hours just to annoy her.

One day I got a note through the door, it wasn't intended for me but for another neighbor. It said "Sorry to disturb you. I've just called an ambulance because I'm not feeling well. I hope the noise of the ambulance doesn't bother you". Sadly, she died. If she had knocked on my door I would have given her any help I could, and today she might still be alive.

Is there a point to this? Dunno. We live in a city. If the noise is excessive, call the police and let them deal with it. Sometimes the person complaining has the problem imo.


It's true sometimes the person complaining has the problem. For the most part, the Heights is considered a quiet part of Jersey City. I live right on Central Ave, and my apartment faces Central Ave, so I've decided to move when my lease is up to a side street or a few blocks away from Central.

I live in the Heights where there are a group of bikers and I just deal with it, like everyone else in the Heights. I'm sure some of you know the bikers I'm referring to, they are older men who don't mean any harm. They just like their bikes.

I hear garbage trucks, delivery trucks to Central Avenue, loud music, people walking by and talking, neighbors standing outside talking/laughing. I have to accept it, because that is the way it is.

I have thought about moving to a more quiet part of JC when my lease is up.

A zombie walk in Paulus Hook, brains, brains. LMAO

If you're going to have a Zombie Walk, you should try to beat the world record that Asbury Park has. All of Jersey City should be invited to participate. In Asbury Park, you have it's residents and people who drive from other towns participating. I know someone who drove there just to participate in the zombie walk.

Taking the zombie walk record from Asbury Park is more likely to happen than becoming NJ's largest city (newark).

"Our 3rd Annual Asbury Park Zombie Walk held on October 30th, 2010 made history as 4,093 zombies shambled across the boardwalk and through the city."

Re: Westside: Part of old PJP Landfill site might get a Walmart or another big-box store

@ianmac47

I guess you have not been reading my posts. If a walmart store were built on westside, it would allow residents who don't have cars to walk there.

But if a costco is built then people need a car or taxi to shop at that store because it is a warehouse and they don't provide shopping bags plus sell large bulk items.

I'm sure there would have to be some road work done for the walmart itself, as with any new department store, but local residents could walk there.

Actually Boris, they don't provide better value to their customers, they merely externalize costs in a way that masks the true cost to the consumer.

For instance, since many of their employees are paid less than a living wage, all taxpayers end up contributing to social programs to support employees of Walmart.

Or, as another example, because price is the primary driver for products, Walmart often pressures suppliers to use cheaper components on products sold in their stores that then end up leading to more waste collected by municipalities, more waste in landfills, and higher long term costs for the consumer who now must replace the faulty product.

But I know for you poors, its easier to think of Walmart as providing you a great discount rather than think about the broader implications of saving four pennies at the register.


The mom and pop stores in Jersey City don't sell good quality items either. Most of the stores in Jersey City (fruit markets, bodegas, furniture, CH Marting, Kennedy Dept. Store, clothing stores in Journal Sq. & Central Ave) all sell cheaply made products as well. And they can't afford to hire more than 1 or 2 people (usually people who don't have a green card) which they pay about $5.00 an hour. Therefore, we still end up contributing to social programs to support most of the residents of Jersey City.

Downtown Jersey City may have more mom and pop stores that sell good quality items, but the same can not be said for Journal Sq., Central Avenue, McGinley Sq., Greenville, and the rest of Jersey City.

it seems you dislike pitbulls but you need to post these articles in the appropriate section. I for one believe pitbulls are the product of their environment. I'm an animal lover and a defender of all dogs regardless of breed.

Another thing @GrovePath, you post way too many downers.

BJs and Costco are not comparable. You might as well be saying "why have a Walmart when there is already a Target?"

While I would much rather see a Costco (and save myself a bi-weekly drive to Clifton) I can at least say that any of the options currently being proposed are better than the "high cube warehouse" that was originally proposed for the site. I just hope that they can manage the additional traffic on 440 which is already a nightmare during rush hour (and frequently on weekends as well).


It seems traffic doesn't enter into these decisions. Just look at all the big box development along Tonnele in N Bergen, that stretch of road is a disaster, and they keep building! It can take you 1/2 hr just to get out of the lot of the new Walmart-BJ's center. But they have a Harbor Freight Tools!


@Brewster
You just proved me right. I've been saying all along it can take up to 30 mins to 1 hour to travel to these stores depending on traffic and you kept saying I was wrong. You just said the same thing I've been saying all along. Thank you.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH JERSEY CITY HAVING A WALMART??? HUDSON COUNTY IS THE MOST DENSELY POPULATED PART OF NEW JERSEY. IF JERSEY CITY CAN HAVE 3 HOME IMPROVEMENT STORES AND A BJS, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH EACH CITY HAVING A WALMART.

@BREWSTER
I'M HAPPY YOU HAVE A CAR AND TRAVEL ALL OVER HUDSON COUNTY TO SHOP, BUT A LARGE MAJORITY OF JERSEY CITY RESIDENTS DON'T HAVE A CAR. @BREWSTER ARE YOU A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER BECAUSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU ARE SO AGAINST JERSEY CITY POSSIBLY GETTING A WALMART???

The Cork Screw in Jersey City Heights has around 10 TVs in the bar and each TV has a different sport on. Last week when I was there, I saw race car driving, baseball, and bull riding just to name a few. The bar has a juke box and a pool table. They cook burgers, fries, etc.

The bars in JerseyCity need to do more marketing though.

@Brewster

Driving in Jersey City and Hudson County is like driving in Nyc. Everyone knows it can take 30 minutes to drive 5 miles. You do live in Jersey City right? It takes me and everyone else I know in Jersey City about 30 minutes to 45 minutes to get to Bayonne depending on how bad the traffic is. It can take about 30 minutes to get to Kearny depending on traffic as well. Sames goes for Secaucus.

Plus there is no Walmart in Bayonne. There is only a Walmart in Secaucus and Kearny. You need a car to get to these towns, when a large majority of Jersey City residents do not own cars, by choice.

@sepecat
You just said you will not travel to Westside because you have a Target nearby, plus a BJs. It would be nice for the rest of Jersey City to have a Walmart dept. store without having to travel to Downtown as well.

Costco is better than BJs. However you would need a car to put everything in because Costco (like BJs) doesn't provide shopping bags. Therefore, most Jersey City residents would need a car or have to pay for a taxi. Costco like BJs sells big bulk items that many single people in Jersey City just don't need or buy. That is why I prefer a Walmart over a Costco.

@borisp
Well Put. Surprised no one has replied to your comment which I agree with 100%.

No one can tell a person where to live, not even an offender. Obviously they have family there or something which is why they hang out there. If their mother lives there, then that is the home address they use whenever they get arrested.

This is a young man, he is not a Life Long Offender (someone who is in their 50s and still in and out of jail). Judges will not turn out the lights on him yet.

Well he is still young, so basically he is not considered a Life Long Offender. The Criminal Justice system and many in our society believe he can still be rehabilitated.

I'm not defending him or excusing his behavior at all. All I'm doing is explaining how the court system works.

He will be given a shorter jail term plus fines, and parole or probation. Plus the jails are overcrowded.

Either way he is not getting off the hook, if that makes you feel any better.

Well, I don't own a car to drive to Secaucus or Kearny. Plus there is no public transportation to Kearny, maybe a bus from Journal Square. I can honestly say I've been to Kearny a handful of times in my life. There is just no reason to go to kearny.

The Secaucus Store is visited by many Bergen and Hudson County shoppers as well.

The Bayonne Walmart store has not happened yet. They were going to open a Walmart in Bayonne but it is not open, don't even know if they are building one???

Therefore it would be convenient for me and many others to have a Walmart in Jersey City.

It doesn't make sense to have a Costco, we already have a BJs, same difference.

Also, it takes about 30 minutes to 45 minutes to get to Bayonne or Secaucus, not 8 minutes. You must be driving at 100 miles per hour! I have been driving my whole life and just recently got rid of my car, so I know how long it takes to get to Bayonne and Secaucus.
