Looks like they've made significant progress on the area between the two co-op towers near Columbus and Marin.

Anyone know what the current plan is for when the remediation is completed? Most importantly, will they open up that space between the towers to pedestrian foot traffic between Columbus and Montgomery?


That area you mention used to be a public street called Gregory ST. It was home to the old Capital Theatre. It was eliminated when they redeveloped the area and built the Greogry Park Apartments. Their are no plans after the project is complete. Although that can change at anytime. Once the cleanup is done the property will become more deseriable.

Don't complain, local taxes pay only about 16% of the cost of educating the local kids in Jersey City. The Feds pay about the same, and other NJ residents (ie the suburbs) underwrite JC schools to the tune of about 71%, at the expense of their own families.

Your taxes are incredibly low considering how JC schools are underwritten, others are paying the lions share from their pockets.

They are not combining the departments. They are combining political appointed positions into one office. The PD and FD will still function on their own.

It is going to be built. I saw some guys out in the parking lot discussing the plans and a truck emptying the old doctor offices near McLaughlin funeral home.

@ JC Progress -Are you planning to move into the new residences? Is that why you can't wait?


No because the Square has been neglected since the 60s. It's time we start to see some development in the square.

I like that idea a lot. Unfortunately we do not have the industrial jobs we had in the past.

I've read 66 stories. Bay Street will be extended to Hudson Street. Construction was said to start in 2013. Yay! More parking garages with towers on top!



That project has not started yet. The earliest would be sometime next year.

The rumored person for the job is Joseph Santiago. Former Irvington, Newark, and Trenton Director. Also held the position of NJ State Police Chief and Essex County public safety director. Very close ties to Mcgreevey which has me believing it.

I was always more of a Quiznos fan (which, ironically, is what DD is replacing in Newport). Potbelly is also OK, I wonder if they will be making a move across from NYC anytime soon.

Qdoba and Crisp are nice additions to the food court.


Potbelly is located at Exchange Place

1.) What is his salary?
2.) Does he reside in Jersey City?
3.) Will you address the corruption findings from his time as Governor?

I think it's a bad idea regardless letting this guy back near goverment institutions. Maybe the Mayor is using him to be his guru for his run in 4 years for Governor.

I don't understand why are you so angry about it. Of course
as I already wrote in another reply , I hate people who are jealous and envious about people who own a property longer than you could imagine and you all haven't even been planned to come to this earth. So these people who own a property longer than any youngster in this city has now to pay more than anybody who just bought a property or house?? This is not fair!!! Don't you know that after every sale taxes went up automatically and that is not a fault the old citizens , no , it happened because the sellers want to get the best price on the market and made a lot of renovation and improvement to the property that the taxes went up . So don't complain, it's still cheaper than NYC and you all know this. You all want to live in a nice surrounding but still want to pay less than others who worked more than you all ever did . These people helped to make "Dirty City" to be Jersey City as you know it now and as you love it sooo much.!


You are such a troll. To call people out on how hard they worked is absurd. My ancestors helped build this city. Not somebody who bought a brownstone for $25,000 in the late 70s. The reevaluation is mandated and will be done within the next five years. So suck it up and pay your fair share.

The only problem with this is in regards to affordability of JC vs cops salary. It's worth considering.


I agree by the time most cops reach top salary they are already married and with a family. To raise a family in Jersey City is difficult with the poor school district and the parohical schools closing every year. What the mayor should do is build workforce housing across the city for employees. Pressure developers to set aside a few units for city employees.

Like David Donnelly's as the new Project Manager making $80K a year? OK, sure.
