JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A Jersey City science teacher has been honored with what’s been labeled the Oscars of Teaching.

Students and faculty at PS-28 Christa McAuliffe School packed into the auditorium for what they were told was a college seminar.

But instead, a representative from the Milken Family Foundation surprised eighth grade teacher Robert O’Donnell with the recognition

“We go all over the country to find the best,” Dr. Jane Foley with the Milken Family Foundation said at the assembly on Wednesday. “You don’t find us, we find you.”

O’Donnell was honored with the state’s only Milken Educator Award. The foundation hands out up to 40 awards each year.

Golden door film festival

Jersey City’s third annual Golden Door International Film Festival kicked off last night with a red carpet gala and the screening of two films at the gilded Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre on Journal Square.

“It is amazing, bigger and better,” said festival organizer Bill Sorvino, who is an actor, a Jersey City native and the nephew of Paul Sorvino of “Goodfellas” fame. “The fest’s thrust is to give filmmakers and actors the same platform whether known or unknown.

“And really (the goal) is to have the most prominent film festival on this side of the Hudson and give Jersey City a shining jewel to beam back across to those big buildings over there.”

This ghetto mindset of build on every open space you find has made some parts of NJ the ugliest in the country. In burbs they are obsessed with building malls, strip malls with chain stores and so on. Here they are obsessed with building ugly towers that block sunlight for others. This is surely becoming another Manhattan, but without the infrastructure.

Nothing new about a supermarket trying in Newark. I seem to remember one that left after the store manager was needlessly executed during a robbery. Safe was opened and they shot him in the head anyway, just because. Of course the store closed.

It's good for Newark, but the city must provide adequate security. So people from surrounding towns don't fear to go there.

Endangered monkeys in residence at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City
#14

Home away from home


During the summer, Mazzanti and Annie moved to Jersey City with their twin daughters. They've settled into a sweet pad with a panoramic view of the New York skyline.

The family lives amid a mélange of greenery. They eat organic produce, socialize via Skype and spend lots of time with a personal trainer.

These new residents aren't hipsters. They're cotton-top tamarins, endangered monkeys adopted by the Liberty Science Center. The chipmunk-sized primates have wild white hair that frames their tiny faces, hence the "cotton-top" moniker.

I think these huge developments should have green spaces on their rooftops. The space is wasted and the rich developers have enough money to build such a thing. Even Newport mall parking lot can have a park on top of it.

If the mayor wants people to settle down here and have kids, he should divert some money from these developments to build more parks. LSP is a huge park, but is not very accessible from downtown. These ugly high-rises with more studios and one beds would only attract young transient crowd. Look at Hoboken and how they have managed to set aside the immediate space along their waterfront for parks instead of hotels and office towers.

Top 10 tallest buildings in New Jersey - most in JC

Home away from home


While Manhattan’s skyscrapers to the east dwarf New Jersey's, the Garden State has been growing its buildings taller and taller with each decade. Newark’s office buildings used to be the highest in the state, but that changed in the 1990s, with the construction of towers in Jersey City and taller casino-hotels in Atlantic City. Today, Newark’s highest peak -- 466 feet atop the National Newark Building -- doesn’t even make the top 10 list. Here’s what does (and while the top of the list is undisputed, it gets dicey toward the bottom):

Three teenage boys have been charged with the murder of a Hoboken man who was found with his neck wedged between iron fence posts on Third Street in Hoboken, Hudson County Acting Prosecutor Gaetano T. Gregory said late tonight.

The boys, two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old, all from Jersey City, face murder charges and have been remanded to the Hudson County Youth Detention Center, Gregory said.

Homicide detectives believe the boys traveled on the Light Rail from Jersey City to Hoboken prior to the attack, Gregory said.

Jersey City Parking Authority Set to Be Dissolved
#23

Home away from home


JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven Fulop has directed the city Law Department to begin the process of dissolving the Jersey City Parking Authority. Next week, the Fulop administration will present to the City Council a resolution to retain the law firm of Weiner Lesniak to investigate operations at the authority.

The dissolution of the city’s autonomous agencies and the absorption of their functions back into the city was a campaign promise Fulop made when running for mayor earlier this year. The mayor has long argued that getting rid of the city’s autonomous agencies will cut municipal costs, improve accountability, and streamline services.

The City Council last week approved a controversial measure introduced by the Fulop administration to merger the Jersey City Incinerator Authority, another autonomous agency, with the Department of Public Works.

Most of the new construction that has happened in Hudson county has been in DTJC. You would think that would help reduce the property taxes. But the big NYC developers are the ones making money.

Monroe, I 100% agree with you. The taxes in Essex county suburbs are high because they support Newark and the towns around it. If you run a business, you would only invest where you can get good return on your money. The folks in suburbs are not getting any such return.

Because if our tax bills are going up, people are not going to be crazy about seeing all these new hires unless they are lights out fantastic. Though maybe with Frank Scalcione in RRC I can get a pizza delivered with my building permit?
