Re: Neighbor illegaly paved over front yard for parking

Are we supposed to just sit back and ignore these people breaking the law and violating city codes and ordinances ? Having an illegal driveway is unfair to the person paying more taxes on a legal driveway, and if there is a liability issue the insurance company finds out the driveway is not legal someone is going to pay a hefty price. I hope the zoning division makes the neighbor put the curb back.

Fortunately, no business needs or expects everyone to go there.

It's not expensive food at all, but if you want a $2 burger at McD's, yes you'll have to go elsewhere.


I normally balk at spending over $8-10 for lunch, and judging by scenes like the trucks at Greeley Sq this won't be in that range. Thankfully, for now, there's still plenty of places in JC away from the waterfront that are.

I was extremely disappointed in the new smokehouse on Tonnelle where 555 market was, and told them so. For the $8 they charged for a meager pile of pulled pork on a hamburger bun, I could get twice as much pernil with a pile rice and beans at dozens of JC establishments.

Was the Smokehouse pulled pork sandwich slider sized ? I'd rather go to Dark Side of the Moo on Bowers St. in the Heights their pulled pork sandwich is ample in it's serving.

Re: its official: entire heights must buy resident parking permit
#11
Home away from home
Home away from home


The idea for zone 16 parking in all of the Heights was to open up parking for local residents, I don't see the advantage yet. I think the main objective is to deter the temptation by having signage up. The idea for four hours instead of two is so local residents can shop on Central Ave or visit with friends or relatives. Ward E is toying with a similar idea but with only three hours. The parking Division being a 24 / 7 operation should be able to ticket as they patrol and not depend on just the signs to deter people from taking up valuable real estate. I would say only allow visitors to park on one side of the street and also have one uniform zone for the entire city that would be a true gesture towards their residents as opposed to a segregated parking society that we have now.

I haven't seen anything saying the BLVD has been zoned.


The side streets around me has seen some enforcement . Maybe once a day someone comes around checking.

Three streets which are county roads are not part of the zone, Kennedy Blvd, Secaucus Rd., and Paterson Plank Rd.

Here we go again.
The municipality allows wealthy corporate interests to disrupt the lives of ordinary people and other people step up to offer solutions that will infringe on rights that they had (free, available parking) prior to these disruptions.

Why should people offer costly solutions to problems that the administration creates?--doesn't make sense.

Sometimes these edicts are necessary due to over crowding and the monopoly of our curbside real estate. I think the next step should be to eliminate zoned parking with the numbered zones and replaced with uniformed single zone system throughout the entire city except for special zones such as schools and resident only areas. Then implement two types of zone parking stickers, one for homeowners and the other for tenants. The tenants would pay a monthly fee as opposed to the property tax payer who would continue to pay an annual fee. Then provide visitor passes at a cost for those out of the area.

I haven't tried to use the ferry yet on the weekend, but let me get this straight. I live by Exchange place and even if my commute is just from Exchange Place to WTC, they still make me pay a PATH fare even if I don't have to ride PATH to get to Exchange Place?

Correct, you pay a PATH fare at Exchange Place to get the round-trip ferry ticket, and on the way back, you don't pay another PATH fare.

I assume you can still buy single ferry tickets (more expensive than PATH fares) or use your monthly pass.

So for the price of a single PATH fare you get a round trip ferry ticket ?

That's really not a lot of money these days. If it were the rent would be half the price. Most people renting there make the average of 75k annually.

Hello all, I am a new member in this forum and a new resident of (Jersey Heights).
When does this resident permit become effective? Are all streets included in this permit? Earlier a few streets didn't require a permit.

Yes, from Tonnelle Ave. to Ogden Ave and from the St. Hwy. (139) to both city borders. It was supposed to have taken affect in May but there is a delay with signage, and deciding whether is should be 24 hours of only up till 11 pm.

Any complaint should be valid enough to be concerned about, there must be some credibility to it because why would anyone make up an incident. Obviously with complaints / concerns there I room for improvement.

You have NO IDEA what you are talking about, but that has already been established! Ratable or abatement, it is still money to the city. Whatever money the city gets from an abatement, it represents actual "income" which means the city needs to raise less money via regular taxation.

And, of course, there is that little pesky fact you choose to ignore: the abatement payments actually add more money to the city coffers than if the property in question was paying regular taxes. Why don't we talk about that??

I would love to hear the rebuttal on this. Either Yvonne is right or you are bod. Can't wait for the finally.

Gotta love JCL sometimes.


Why would anybody think a rap concert would start on time @ 8:30? I am sure the producers knew that... an hour late is being very accomodating to a rap audience on a hot night.

I saw Lavarro twitter live.. it wasn't a video of the longest soundcheck ever but it was pretty apparent he was late. Jersey City should be thankful he even showed up.

Because he got paid $100k that's way. And it was a national event with mass crowds where we cannot afford that type of lax security. How dare J.C. allow this to occur !

He actually didn't go on till 9:30 and did his full show. Why were you at that show anyway, weren't you one of the ones yammering about shootings? Could it be you knew your own words were absolute bs?

There for the fireworks, wasn't anywhere near that obnoxious show. But he still managed to h-jack my time though.
