Like most warehouses this brings little to no jobs to JC.

This place will be 136,000 square feet of dead storage space for documents and data. No manufacturing, no commerce, just trucks in and out all day from all over the place.

I don't know if you need to worry about double-wide strollers, but you definitely need to worry about double-wide neighborhood association leaders.

Before this turns into a forum for NON-bashing, I would just like to make it clear that the website in question is a community effort put together by a much larger group than NON. While he's provided a major contribution and lit the fire to get this started, this was a long time coming, probably before NON even surfaced. The website that shall not be named is in no way a political statement nor is it being used in any way different than what JC List was originally intended for. We just feel it's an alternative forum for communication.

And now back to your regularly scheduled lunacy.

NYC Says No to Extra Tax Breaks for Chase
NEW YORK -- J.P. Morgan Chase Bank is threatening to leave New York City if it doesn't receive bigger tax breaks to build a 50-story office tower at ground zero.


More posturing, just like Merrill Lynch did a few months ago. The companies purposely leak this to the news to cause an uproar and then the city folds and gives them their breaks. Nothing to see here, move along.

I actually think it's a very fair comparison, but regardless of that, there's no reason why there can't be a team of 2-3 people sitting there watching. Sure, they may not catch everything - just like they don't catch everything in Vegas - but it's better than not looking at all and only using the tapes in prosecution later.

Who is supposed to answer this for you? The JJ fairy?

Why not go to the police department and file a FOIA to get a copy of the police report? That should give you an idea of the direction that the police went.

Or maybe there's a FOIA fairy that can do it for you.

What a whiny, pedantic way to make a point...

Yeah, the architecture sucks. Yeah, the lawsuit was complete BS. If you'd like to make a point about the architecture and *moving forward*, make it.

If you'd like to live in the past and harp on how the city and culture was abused you're not going to make a constructive point about how to move forward and probably not going to be taken seriously.

Maybe they can do something with it like they did in the Florida Keys with all of the old bridges. Most are still intact and are used as pedestrian and bike paths as well as fishing launches.

Granted, you don't want to be fishing in the Hackensack River, but it would be a cool space.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Mile_Bridge


(Useless trivia: The scene in True Lies where they blow up the bridge is real - they're blowing up a chunk of the "old" Seven Mile Bridge between Vaca Key and Marathon)

No, they're too busy trying to get support and make us feel bad for poor lady that runs a convenience store that SELLS CRACK PIPES. Gee, I wonder what the people who robbed her shopped there for previously?

Wait, wait wait - the store that was robbed, that we read that whole sob story about how she feared for her life etc. while she was being robbed, sells those pipes?

I just lost every last bit of sympathy I had for her. She's part of the problem, not part of the solution, and if this is true (I've never had reason to patronize that establishment) the Guardian Angels should have been ashamed to associate themselves with such a store.

How can someone possibly believe that leasing out, what, at least 25 floors, is a huge loss versus paying taxes to a municipality?

Do people really think waterfront commercial real estate is that cheap? Or that taxes are *THAT* out of control?

Non PILOT property owners are struggling to make up not just their share of the school tax but also the share not being paid by folks who have PILOT properties.


Struggling in theory, I suppose, but in general PILOTs have actually cost builders/rehabbers more than the actual property taxes would have cost. In reality everyone's paying near the same proportional amount, and it would seem as property taxes go up the base on which PILOTs are calculated go up as well.

Roaring20s wrote:
Explain to me if you can why you would be against subsidised housing for the working poor when these PILOT properties are subsidised.


Because PILOTs are not subsidised - everyone's paying their fair share, it's just the destination of that share is changed. Comparing that to someone who's getting a house basically for free is ludicrous.

WTF does your credit card have to do with it? PILOT's aren't lines of credit. They're payments, due, just like taxes.

PILOTs put just as much money if not more into the city coffers. The question was why is the city not getting the tax revenue. It is, in a different form. The county gets short changed, yes, but that wasn't the question posed. Would you rather see *all* of that money go into Jersey City in the form of a PILOT, or would your rather see it get split up 10 different ways and go to Weehawken, Hoboken, Secaucus and Bayonne, etc. as a tax?

Now it looks like the shoe's on the other foot. Non-abated property owners look at abated owners just the same way as you're looking at these people in these subsidized apartments. Don't throw stone if you live in glass houses people!


Slam? You're both clueless.

How many times does it have to be stated? Properties with tax abatements still pay just as much if not more money into city coffers. PILOTs. I don't think I need to define them for the 50th time.

That is all.

intr.v. Slang wild?ed, wild?ing, wilds

To go about in a group threatening, robbing, or attacking others: ?Police said that the youngsters... were part of a larger group of teenagers who were ?wilding,?their slang for terrorizing and bullying? (Maclean's).

As for the GAs, the point that BM and I were trying to make is that they ARE around, and if you believe that they're not -- simply because you personally have not seen them -- then all you need to do is pick up the phone or write them an email and ask them directly whether or not they're still patrolling JC. It's not fair that you are making these assumptions, which are clearly wrong, without making an effort to unearth the facts.




My bad on wilding - m-w.com didn't have a definition for it (in the dictionary section at least) other than to call it a wild plant or animal.

This will be my last post on this (yeah, save your "good, shut up")... As far as the GA's go, you're missing my point. My point is that I haven't seen them. I walk about 8 blocks each way to and from the path at around 9:30AM and between 6 and 9PM every day. I also come home late every once in awhile after midnight, and I haven't seen them in months. They make their point known by being conspicuous, andhere's no secret recipe to how they fight crime. They're not being conspicuous. End of point.

Try the veal, and don't forget to tip your waitress.

No thanks, I have no reason to bug them. I'm sure they have better things to do.

I just found it comedic that they're being "notified" as if they're some official agency when their main benefit (and crime-fighting technique) is being visible and they aren't being seen.

If people have seen them around, more power to them. They showed up in force when the press was around and it sounds like now every once in awhile a couple will show up here and there. I think we can all agree they aren't doing much good at 5pm on Grove Street. If they're around, I think we'd all sure like to see them walking around HP or VVP in the evening/late nights when most of these incidents seem to be taking place... Otherwise, they might as well be the cops.

PS - what's "wilding", anyways?
