Re: Lafayette section: SUFFOCATING DILEMMA -- dank smell of smoldering piles of wood chips

I'm sorry, but if I was burning toxic waste in front of my house without a permit, do you think that taking an ad out in a local paper would make it all better.
That is such B***sh**. If you live within smelling distance I would suggest you call and write to complain.
And remember this kind of stuff when it comes time to vote. No one is looking out for the health and welfare of this area.
Bet if the mulch was being processed across the street from City Hall so those jerks had to smell it everyday, the place would be shut down by now.

Re: Healy Foundation kickoff is tomorrow -- just received its official tax-exempt nonprofit status

oh great, they are relying on "what we read in the papers" to choose who needs charity.
don't bother with the work of investigating worthy causes in our city. lazy lazy lazy.
i hope they end up giving money to somebody who burned their own place down for the insurance money. what about that guy they got on tape setting multiple fires in his girlfriends apartment building. i bet he could use some more incendiary devices.
and i am not a healy basher, i voted for him. he was the best of the worst i thought.

Re: White Manna

you don't go to a place like this for the great customer service- it's like the old captain al's or mcsorleys.
BTW i've been in all of those places numerous times and i've never had anyone be rude to me. I think maybe they are rougher on men though. and even though i lived in three different states and dc after moving away from here as a kid, somehow people here can sense if you are from hudson county. maybe it's the stench of old pig farms, factories and corruption, but they don't usually mess with people born here. lucky me. i knew being from secaucus would have to work in my favor once in my life.

Re: Jersey's high cost of housing tops nation - Ownership eats up residents' incomes

to answer your questions, my property is assessed at next to nothing. it is 13x65 i think, so not a big footprint. But it has four usable floors and is a nice house, hardwood floors, yard etc..
we have been here for less than five years, but the house has been here according to maps since pre 1900. still has those gaslight fixtures in some rooms (not working of course).
don't know if or when they plan to reassess or how that will work. in DC that had a law that you can't increase property taxes by more than a certain percentage each year no matter what happens with assessments. Do they have anything like that here?

Re: Jersey's high cost of housing tops nation - Ownership eats up residents' incomes

i'm in a single family house downtown and my taxes are less than 3,000 a year- i can't be the only one who pays what i think are pretty low taxes here. (not that the taxes i do pay are being put to the best use by our local govt.)
i know some people who bought newly built stuff around the corner and are paying like 15,000 a year- that seems insane.

Re: Ending homelessness in 10 years --- Lucy's Shelter on Grove Street

yes, we serve sat & sun, 7-930am. hot food goes out at 8 am.
we are always looking for volunteers if anyone is interested, you can send me a message or visit

re the article,
i saw a program in philadelphia they started that sounds similar to this, and they greatly reduced the homeless population by implementing a "housing first" program, where they took candidates and provided them with a small apt so they could have showers and amenities, and many of them then were able to get employment and the social services that they needed because they had a mailing address, a safe place to sleep, and were more able to care for themselves. it ended up being cheaper for the govt agencies to pay for the apt than all the other things they had previously been doing.
not sure if this is the same kind of idea.

Re: 'Wolf Packs' Back? 2 Dickinson students beaten by huge violent gang of 40 students

why wasnt the "beater" suspended or charged with assault if they know who she is.
the police are just going to have to arrest her five years from now.
maybe if she was charged she might at least get some therapy.
if i was a parent of a kid there i would be incredibly angry.

Re: Condo Shopping Observations

if you saved 100,000 why wouldn't you invest in a house downtown that you could actually add additions and stuff?
i guess some people prefer a view and not having to handle maintenance and stuff?
there are houses for sale close to the liberty state park light rail cheaper than the beacon condos.
i just can't see investing in a condo. but then again i have a cranky dog and couldn't really do condo living.

Re: Uniforms policy crackdown riles parents in Jersey City

I wish i had a uniform in school. i think it is democratizing and it also would have saved me an enormous amount of time every morning.
oh, and it would have saved me from the bandwagon of awful trends like legwarmers over jeans, men's boxers as girl shorts, jelly shoes... ugggh.

Re: Downtown Jersey City Watch-Updates Thread

i've been to every watch meeting except one and monday's ranks up there as one of the most attended.
when it started there were more police in attendance sometimes than citizens.
i think that people are becoming more aware and even if you can't make the meetings, you can call the police every time you see something.
the more calls we make, the more attention we get for the area.

Re: Daytime Burglary on Coles and 7th

The Downtown Watch meeting is Sep 11, 7pm, at Grace Church Van Vorst, in the sanctuary (entrance on Second Street near Erie).
It is the second Monday of every month at 7pm.
Last month DeFazio was there, and the new police chief.
