Man takes plea in fatal shooting just as jury selection was to begin

A Jersey City man set to be retried for a 2015 murder took an 11th hour plea deal Tuesday just as jury selection in the murder trial was to begin.

DeAndre Thomas, 23, pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter for fatally shooting Davonte Carswell, 23, on Nov. 15, 2015, inside a Jersey City bodega that doubled as an illegal gambling joint.

School district paid city rec director thousands in 'error,' seeks money back

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City's recreation director collected thousands of dollars earlier this year for a job with the public-school district he was not performing, records obtained by The Jersey Journal show.

The district, where Williams was a supervisor before he became rec director, paid Williams for up to 24 days after he joined Jersey City's payroll in January, according to copies of his paychecks The Jersey Journal received after filing a public-records request.

Williams makes $121,165 annually for his city position. His district job — he is on a one-year leave of absence to work for the city — paid him $150,400.

Jersey City hospital to pay 'voluntary' taxes after city challenged tax-exempt status

JERSEY CITY — After city officials appealed Jersey City Medical Center's tax-exempt status, the Downtown hospital has agreed to kick in $550,000 annually to the city's coffers for the next six years.

The agreement, which is part of a legal settlement between the hospital and the city, comes three years after a tax court judge ruled that Morristown Medical Center should pay Morristown property taxes because it fails to meet the legal test that it operates as a nonprofit. That ruling led dozens of towns statewide to sue hospitals seeking tax revenue.

The Best Walking Towns in America

Jersey City, New Jersey

View from Hudson River Waterfront Walkway in Jersey City.f11photo/Shutterstock

Jersey City seems to have absorbed some of the walkability of its Big Apple neighbor. It has an 87 overall “walk score,” according to walkscore.com, which means that it’s very easy to get all your errands done on foot. The Historic Downtown and Journal Square neighborhoods are especially walkable, with high concentrations of hip bars and restaurants like Orale Mexican Kitchen and Dullboy, a small corner bar with tasty custom cocktails. No matter where in the city you live, it’s an easy commute by train into Manhattan.

Jersey City school board VP faces judge in ethics case

NEWARK — A Jersey City school board member accused of violating a state ethics law when he took legal action against a member of his own board of education faced an administrative law judge in Newark on Thursday.

Lorenzo Richardson, the board's vice president, is accused of violating a state law that bans school board members from representing any party other than the school board or district in a proceeding involving the district they serve. The ethics complaint that led to Thursday's roughly 90-minute hearing was filed by one of Richardson's fellow board members, Matt Schapiro.

The best bagel shop in North Jersey is...

Wonder no more, bagel lovers. The bagel shop that received the most love from our bagel-loving readers is that downtown family-owned Jersey City institution, Wonder Bagels on Jersey Avenue. (There are six other locations, including two in Bayonne, but the Jersey Avenue spot is the most popular; for proof: see its long lines.) It's teeny — no tables, just a counter with eight seats — but it's a huge success.

Jersey City blasts Kushner family's lawsuit as a 'conspiracy theory'

The Kushner family's real-estate development firm spun a web of fabrications that reads "like a conspiracy theory" to make it seem they are the victims of Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop's animus toward President Trump, the city alleges in a new legal filing.

The filing, a motion by Jersey City to dismiss the lawsuit the firm filed against the city and Fulop in July, says the company's allegations against the city are a "desperate attempt" by Kushner Companies and its partner, KABR Group, to remain the redevelopers of the stalled One Journal Square project. The two-tower plan is slated for a vacant lot adjacent to the Journal Square PATH station.

The prosecution on Friday began framing its case against three Jersey City police officers accused of participating in an off-duty jobs conspiracy.

The charges against Lt. Kelly Chesler and retired Capt. Joseph Ascolese stem from off-duty traffic assignments in 2014 during Pulaski Skyway closures and Route 139 construction. Ascolese was in charge of the operation and Chesler was his executive officer.

Jersey City seeks to boost pay of department directors

JERSEY CITY — The city is proposing annual raises of $10,660 to $28,835 for nine department directors, citing a need to boost pay to keep top officials from fleeing city government for higher paying jobs.

The planned pay raises would be the first for the nine positions in more than a decade. The business administrator, clerk and corporation counsel would see their pay rise from $139,340 to $150,000. The directors of economic development, health, human resources, public works and recreation, plus the tax assessor, would get a pay boost from $121,165 to $150,000.

$2M in exchange for tax break in Jersey City was wrong, judges say

JERSEY CITY — Municipalities cannot require developers receiving tax breaks to prepay their payments-in-lieu-of-taxes but they can require contributions to affordable housing trust funds, an appellate panel ruled Thursday in a case centered on a failed Jersey City tower project.

The three-judge panel said Jersey City can keep the $710,769 in trust fund contributions it received from the project's developers, but it must return $2 million in upfront payments the developers gave the city in 2009. The Aug. 9 ruling, which calls the prepayments grossly unfair, partially reverses a lower-court ruling that was entirely in favor of the developers, Multi-Employer Property Trust.

Hold on marijuana offenses has support in Jersey City

JERSEY CITY -- On the same day New Jersey's attorney general announced an immediate adjournment of marijuana-related cases in municipal courts, people in the state's second-largest city appeared to welcome the news.

In Jersey City's Journal Square neighborhood Tuesday, a number of passersby shared their thoughts on the future of marijuana in the state just hours after New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal advised all local and county prosecutors to put a hold on marijuana-related offenses until Sept. 4. 

Many see the move as a prelude to eventual decriminalization and legalization.

Kushner v. Fulop: Inside the collapse of Jersey City tower project deal

 JERSEY CITY — It was April 2009 and Mayor Jerramiah Healy was seeking re-election.

Healy and other city officials gathered outside a vacant lot in Journal Square, a site they promised would soon be home to a massive, two-tower development, the first skyscrapers in the city's center. The property was in a prime location, directly next to the Journal Square PATH transportation hub.

The project represented "a great step forward" for Jersey City, Healy said.

Four years later, Healy was again seeking re-election, this time facing a challenge from Councilman Steve Fulop. At a debate in the Journal Square Loew's theater, Fulop noted that there had been zero progress on the still-vacant site.

Developers at odds over future of Jersey City neighborhood

JERSEY CITY — A four-block Downtown Jersey City neighborhood that sits in the shadow of the New Jersey Turnpike Extension is at the center of a tug-of-war between developers with competing plans to transform the area into the city's hottest new residential neighborhood.

Developer Sandy Weiss of Manhattan Building Company has plans to build nearly 900 apartments in the area, but property owners have their own development proposals that the city is looking to halt to make way for Weiss' project. The property owners now face the prospect of having their lots seized via eminent domain as the city argues they've had more than a decade to change the neighborhood and haven't.

The proposed Jersey City payroll tax awaits Gov. Phil Murphy's signature, but it's unclear whether it will become law.

The plan, which would allow for a maximum 1 percent tax on a Jersey City business' total payroll, was dreamed up as a way to offset potential cuts in state aid to the city's public school district. Those cuts are part of a school funding formula bill proposed by Democratic state Sen. President Stephen Sweeney and also awaiting Murphy's pen.

“I got another letter from the Kushner family today threatening to sue me AGAIN. They demand an apology for me saying the truth + they even drafted a tweet for me to send out. It’s not going to happen. I’ll revise my tweet slightly when THEY apologize publicly,” Fulop tweeted late this morning.

“I’m not going to apologize for saying the truth. Whether it’s inaccurately reporting ownership in properties, or misrepresenting $ partners, or outright saying in China that $ in Jersey City properties means lots to the family, i think the public can judge 4 themselves[.]”

Nearly half of Hudson County's Trenton delegation did not vote on a school funding bill that would lead to a massive cut in state aid for Jersey City's public-school district while boosting funding for districts elsewhere in the county and statewide.

Two of the lawmakers — Assemblywomen Angelica Jimenez, D-West New York, and Angela McKnight, D-Jersey City — said they were not in Trenton for the Thursday vote. Both told The Jersey Journal they had children with school functions that night. Jimenez said she would not have voted "yes" if she had been present, while McKnight declined to say whether she would have or not.
