Anybody who believes this can happen is totally clueless.

Texas spent hundreds of millions on a purpose built race track with grandstands, amenities, etc.

And a couple of broke ass NJ towns think they are going to get a race for pennies?

These morons wouldn't recognize an F1 race on TV if they passed one while switching channels between Nascar and a monster truck rally.

Has any of these dopey politicians DRIVEN on these roads on anything stiffer than a blacked-out out Suburban or Escalade? You go near the speed limit and you are in danger of your wheels falling off with all of the ruts and potholes.

You think Ecclestone is going to sanction a race here?
Dream on.

BTW...I have a Bridge I'd like to sell you, right over in Brooklyn.

Nice ride. But slooooooooooooow was an understatement.

You don't have to have a race at 20mph...
But you could at least make it to 10 !

After finding our management company was cooking the books (by padding & rigging bids), we canned them.

The survey is unbiased as far as I can see.

People can respond positively or negatively to each and every question.

If the responses are 80% negative, it is only PATHS fault.

New train lines have been added to the survey, so now have all four options for morning commute.

PATH now SKIPPING WTC Trains during RUSH HOUR!
#12
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Two days in a row (and counting), between 8:20 and 8:40 am, PATH has been skipping WTC Trains and running two 33rd street trains in a row.

As everyone knows (except clueless PATH mgmt of course), morning rush hour trains to WTC were already arriving at Grove St. filled beyond capacity from NWK/JSQ.

Now with skipping trains, the matter is even worse. Hard to believe they could f*ck it up even more than it already was, but they have managed to do so.

When a WTC train finally arrives, it is so packed that NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON could squeeze on.

Why the heck is PATH doing this?
How on earth can these morons keep making things worse?

143 Morgan Street.

A couple of years ago, almost every bike in our 40 unit condo was stolen. They must have got a couple of dozen.

There had to be a van involved, because many of the bikes were locked and not rideable.

Of course cops saw nothing, because they never patrol our street.

You might as well put a bunch of trained monkees up there.

PATH Thursdays=Pure Absurdity

A half dozen PATH employees, paid to hand out useless pamphlets.

Meanwhile, not a single person can squeeze onto their rush hour trains.

Every train bound for WTC arrives at Grove St. from NWK/JSQ ALREADY FULL beyond capacity. In many cases train after train goes buy packed like sardines, and no one at Grove can get on.

Yet they spend money on pamphlets, new service announcement recordings, and platform TV's. None of which alleviates overcrowding.

PATH management is CLUELESS and INCOMPETENT.

Path management is CLUELESS.

They have the resources to:

A) Record new public service announcements

WHICH DOES NOTHING TO ALLEVIATE MORNING RUSH HOUR OVERCROWDING

B) Install new flat screens

WHICH DOES NOTHING TO ALLEVIATE MORNING RUSH HOUR OVERCROWDING

C) Put up posters about new path trains (yet to be seen)

WHICH DOES NOTHING TO ALLEVIATE MORNING RUSH HOUR OVERCROWDING

-----------

The morons in PATH management should concentrate their time and money into getting the larger trains on line FIRST.

Then they can piss away all of the resources they want on this crap that DOESN'T MATTER.

Re: Motorcycle accident on Morgan st

I live in that building.

Not even knowing the details of the accident, I can say that an accident was inevitable.

People on Morgan Street park right up against our driveway narrowing the exit. We even had the city paint 'No Parking' with white lines on the ground. Some a**holes park with thier cars well over the lines.

That makes for a blind exit leaving the garage. It is IMPOSSIBLE to see oncoming traffic because it is blocked by the parked cars. You can only see once the hood of the car is into the street, (which is of course too late).

So it was only a matter of time before this happened.

I've been almost broadsided leaving the garage several times. It doesn't help that NY'rs cruise down the block doing 50mph either.

STRANGE DOINGS AT THE JERSEY CITY PLANNING BOARD
#20
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


For Immediate Release
Contact: Stacy Nusbaum
201-780-6840
president@padnajc.org

JERSEY CITY, NJ - Last April, the Jersey City City Council, over the strenuous objections of a room full of residents, adopted amendments to the Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment Plan. These amendments were crafted to specifically and exclusively benefit Pennsylvannia "McMansion" developer Toll Brothers and result in destroying the vision and potential of the Powerhouse Arts District.

Soon thereafter, the Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association (PADNA) filed suit in Hudson County Superior Court to overturn these amendments. The case was argued in December 2008 before Judge Barbara Curran. A broad coalition of neighborhood, preservation and civic associations, appeared as friends of the court in support of PADNA.

To date the Court has not issued a verdict. This is not surprising given the complexity of the zoning matters at issue. But no matter which side prevails, it is likely that the case will be reargued in the state's appellate courts which may prove to be a lengthy process.

DESPITE THIS PENDING LITIGATION, the Jersey City Planning Board has scheduled a February 17, 2009 hearing for Toll Brothers' application for "site plan review" of the blocks that are the subject of the litigation. Astonishingly, the Planning Board is moving ahead on the assumption that the legally-challenged amendments are or will be found valid. Indeed, Toll Brothers is/are seeking yet MORE changes in the Redevelopment Plan to further ease their way.

"Site plan review" is a process under which a local planning board makes sure that a proposed development will be carried out in a manner consistent with local zoning. In this case, the Board is being asked to make such a determination in spite of the fact that the status of the basic law (PAD Redevelopment Plan) itself remains unresolved.

While nothing in the law explicitly prohibits such an exercise, nothing mandates it either. Typically, land use boards wait until complex litigation is resolved rather than indulge in speculative planning which may be undone by the actions of the Court. For some reason, the Jersey City Planning Board is not.

PADNA is asking the public to turn out on February 17 to ask why the Planning Board is acting so prematurely, and to oppose Toll Brothers' latest attempts to revise the carefully-considered Jersey City Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment Plan.

New Jersey's land use laws, which mandate public hearings on proposed development, are designed to incorporate informed public opinion into the entire planning process. By accelerating the development application of a favored developer while the key law is still in question, Jersey City is only fueling even more public disappointment with and cynicism about the entire process.

...just sayin' it's not the main motivator for people to move here.

On the contrary.

I moved here four years ago.

I selected the PAD zone SPECIFICALLY because it was supposed to be an arts neighborhood, and not towers.

Now it appears that the city council are totally spineless chimpanzees, that blindly green-lights any variance that a developer asks for.

It's a shame.

This last part is total BS.

"Toll Brothers attorney Carl Bisgaier said the City Council amended the redevelopment plan in April after a public planning process. He argued that amenities included in the company's proposal more than justify the changes in height and density.

Those amenities include a 550-seat theater with parking, a $1.1 million contribution to operate the theater, thousands of square feet of performance and exhibition space, and an outdoor plaza to serve as a neighborhood gathering place."

The performing art center was in the initial PAD plans. It's no concession or gift on the part of toll bros. It was always supposed to be there!

DOWNTOWN JERSEY CITY UNITES AGAINST TOLL BROTHERS UPZONING

DOWNTOWN JERSEY CITY UNITES AGAINST TOLL BROTHERS UPZONING

PADNA (The Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association) of Jersey City is pleased to announce that Superior Court Judge Barbara A. Curran has ruled favorably on a motion requesting permission to appear in PADNA's suit against the City of Jersey City as amicus curiae ("Friends of the Court").

The motion was filed by Jersey City's downtown neighborhood associations: Historic Paulus Hook Association, Inc., the Van Vorst Park Association, the Newport Neighborhood Association, Inc., a representative of the Hamilton Park neighborhood and two citizen advocacy groups, ProArts and Civic JC. The Harsimus Cove Association, another downtown neighborhood association, has joined PADNA as a co-plaintiff.

These local organizations, which have expressed their concern about the radical set of amendments to the PAD Redevelopment Plan, will have an opportunity to weigh in on PADNA's suit against the City of Jersey City, filed earlier this year.

When the Jersey City Municipal Council voted to up-zone the Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment plan to accommodate "McMansion" developer Toll Brothers, it simultaneously laid waste to over a decade of broad community involvement (including input from the Urban Land Institute), made mockery of the planning process and set a terrible precedent that will embolden developers to engage in excessive profiteering. In response, PADNA filed a suit in Hudson County Superior Court on June 2, 2008

The PAD Redevelopment Plan was adopted in October 2004 to facilitate a DUMBO-like arts and historic warehouse cultural hub. The recent amendment gives Toll a huge subsidy at no cost to Toll and with no giveback to the community. If built, the Toll Brothers plan will:

* Destroy the unique character of the arts district
* Demolish historic warehouses
* Eliminate affordable housing for artists
* Obliterate one of five remain cobblestone streets in Jersey City, the only one with an embedded rail
* Double the density previously permitted
* Quadruple the height previously permitted
* Plunge four occupied and actively used historic warehouses into permanent shadow


PADNA and its fellow plaintiffs are being represented by seasoned land use attorney Michael Kates of Kates Nussman Rapone Ellis & Farhi, LLP. The amicus groups are represented by Cynthia Hadjiyannis, Esq. of Jersey City.

Oral argument is scheduled on Monday, Dec. 15 at the Hudson County Administration Building, 595 Newark Avenue, Jersey City.

The PAD is home to over 350 residents with more than $125 million invested in the neighborhood. PADNA has over 150 active members, supports the Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment Plan as it stood before April 9, 2008, and strives for a transparent city government that supports its residents.
