I'm having a hard time believing this story especially the eight shot on Manhattan Ave. and nothing in the newspaper. The OP is a newbie to this site so not sure of his credibility. I'll ask the captain at the Captain's Meeting next week on Wednesday.

I read what they wrote different. I took what they were saying as the shooting started on Sherman ave and later continued again on Manhattan ave where at least 8 more shots were let off and they heard at least 15 shell casings in total were picked up from both scenes.

If no one was hit it isn't uncommon at all for it not to make the news. Most shootings without a gunshot victim don't get covered.

If they really meant 8 people were shot I would have a hard time believing that also.

JC Heights shooting on Sherman Ave and Ferry street

There was a shooting on Sherman ave on Saturday morning around 2:30 am that then escalated to eight more shot on Manhattan Ave. I am curious as to why this did not make the news. I did hear mention that there were 14 shell casings in total picked up.

anyone hear additional news?

Re: JC has competition for "6th Boro" status

Jersey city should be called "Jersey City" and nothing else. It is the second biggest city in New Jersey, not New York. A city that has nothing to do with proximity to new york because hoboken and weehawken are just as close if not an easier commute. but a city that has everything to do with its rich history from the bootleging days.

To call Jersey city the 6th borough would be a disgrace to all who were born in this great city and that name represents nothing of what it stands for. Jersey City is a city within the state of New jersey that represents the struggles and hard times that some in the hill see everyday, the quiet area and great views that those in downtown enjoy and the hustle and bustle that those in the heights and journal square experience.

Please stop this cry to put a nickname to a place that is already making a name on the map. Jersey City is what it is and I appreciate those who are helping to make it better but changing the name will not change its character.

Razza (simply amazing)

That is all.

firstly, this is not the suburbs. This is Jersey city, we are a city and people are always in a rush. People will play frogger to get to where they have to be on time and people will ignore yield signs to do the same. You just have to keep your eyes open and watch out for yourself and other drivers as well.

secondly, I believe people in this country, let alone this city, need to reasses the way they drive.

Texting and driving
eating and driving
putting on make up and driving

you are the problems of the situation we speak of.

It's extremely funny reading some of these posts in this thread and others. The bias I find is amazing. "The heights is up and coming." "Greenville is up and coming." "BL is up and coming."

Look at property values and median income, those are the only stories that matters. Development and business follow the money and currently the money is in DTJC and Newport, not the heights, Greenville, or BL.


I guess you're the kind of person who never, ever gets ahead of the crowd. There were plenty of people thinking we were too adventurous buying in Hamilton Park in 97. We felt truly adventurous was 79, and by 2002 the party was in full swing. But if you wait for the sure thing and don't ever plug in your crystal ball and give it a go, the big opportunity is no longer there. Mock all you want, and say Downtown in 97 wasn't risky at all, but the numbers don't lie.



I'm not the gambling type. But if I were to gamble, I would at least make a somewhat sensical gamble.

Let's see, what is the capital of the world...NYC. DTJC = close to NYC = money. Hoboken = close to NYC = money.

Heights = not close to NYC, not a good gamble.

In reality, any area around the PATH will see an increase in property values first before the heights does. There are better options than the heights.

Need to be close to NYC? Live in DTJC, Newport, or Hoboken

Need more space? Live in a surburb because you'll need a car in both the heights and the surburbs and the suburbs have better schools, less crime, less grit.


To hear the heights being compared to Hoboken is almost laughable. I think this thread should be named, "Heights or Bergen Lafayetter? Where should I live if I don't want to live in Greenville?"




You are obviously not the gambling type... East Side heights is the Gentrification hotspot right now and has been for the past year.

Being someone who is always meeting people form the Area, I get feedback from people living in hoboken and dowtown who say they are really thinking about moving into the heights.

I speak to people in the heights who say they could not see themselves moving out.

I live in the heights and Everything that I need to travel, live, or work is of a 5 min access from me.

No complains and no flooding for me in the cozy toasty heights..

Mr. Monopoly is definitely looking for investments on the east side heights vecinity.

your gambles a flop brooo.

Brewster: dthe heights is currently what downtown was in 2004...moving on up.

Does anyone know what happened with the overturned SUV at the intersection of Webster and Booraem?

It looked very bad and the roof of the SUV was missing.

Re: Webmaster - Why did you take down the PR parade discussion?

Grumpy... you are ridiculous. Mardi gras is wayyy louder.

Im not puerto rican, but the least I can do is let them have their day of celebration. they barely have their independance.

and if you dont like parades with beer bottles being on the street then go back to millburn, scotch plains, bergen county, what have you.

this is hudson county (jersey city). white, black, spanish, asian. we got it all and you better believe everyone is gonna celebrate their race. (indians have their celebration on newark ave every summer at 3 AM!! no one complains, cause they are on the other side of JC) and I will be cheering everyone on.

melting pot, if you cant stand the heat then get out the pot.

move to hoboken and complain about st pattys day.

cry babies. you cry = you lose.

GET ON YOUR BIKE AND RIDE!!!

From washington park up to kennedy blvd all down to lincoln park, west side ave to ege ave, back up to kennedy and towards bayonne, left on danforth alllll the way to caven point, crossing the country club to liberty state park. over the footbridge to downtown around exchange place by the water up through snake road behind christ hospital, palisade avenue all the way back up to washington park.

It takes 3 hours at a steady scenic pace. no stops!!

I will personally talk to Steven about possibly making a couple of turf fields down by 440 next to lincoln park west.

Turf fields have a lower maintenance cost than grass, plus I know a company owner who can help with estimates.

P.S @ Newbie, Heinz was my coach about 10 years ago. He lives out by summit now.
