You don't need permission to take photos of people's homes from public property. Obviously trespassing is illegal, but if you tried to stop me from shooting even in a "non-scenic area" you would have a lawsuit on your hands.

"Project Scope:
The project is the construction of an approximately half-mile pedestrian pathway from the site of a planned residential development at the junction of Hoboken Avenue and Newark Avenue in Jersey City to the 2nd Street Station of the HBLR in Hoboken. The pathway will also feature lighting, landscaping, CCTV and call-for-aid boxes."

What's happening with the parking lot on the south side of First between Manila and Erie? It's a giant pit with a JCRA sign, but there's nothing on their site about it.

This is an excerpt from a cellular phone tower article published on www.cancer.org

"Some people have expressed concern that living, working, or going to school near a cell phone tower might increase the risk of cancer or other health problems. At this time, there is very little evidence to support this idea. In theory, there are some important points that would argue against cellular phone towers being able to cause cancer.

First, the energy level of radiofrequency (RF) waves is relatively low, especially when compared with the types of radiation that are known to increase cancer risk, such as gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet (UV) light. The energy of RF waves given off by cell phone towers is not enough to break chemical bonds in DNA molecules, which is how these stronger forms of radiation may lead to cancer.

A second issue has to do with wavelength. RF waves have long wavelengths, which can only be concentrated to about an inch or two in size. This makes it unlikely that the energy from RF waves could be concentrated enough to affect individual cells in the body.

Third, even if RF waves were somehow able to affect cells in the body at higher doses, the level of RF waves present at ground level is very low – well below the recommended limits. Levels of energy from RF waves near cell phone towers are not significantly different from the background levels of RF radiation in urban areas from other sources, such as radio and television broadcast stations.

For these reasons, most scientists agree that cell phone antennas or towers are unlikely to cause cancer."


If you read through to the bottom of that page, the studies cited by the article all specify that these results are expected by radiation recipients at ground level adjacent to transmitters on buildings or towers. If I lived on the top floor of that building I would be very concerned.

Yes. I lived there for four years. If you're on ground level you WILL get water, especially on the corner where there's a dip in elevation.

It's useless having a discussion with this dirty shill. Make an excellent point, and he'll try to deflect attention to any other topic than actually address your point. It's a pathetic tactic, not only for its desperation but for its obvious transparency.

Your math is intellectually dishonest. Two people die per year in the whole country, the majority of which don't live anywhere near a gas pipeline. Conversely, the vast majority of Americans (arguably) go out to eat in a restaurants. If the number of people who eat at a restaurant on any given day equalled the number of people living on top of a gas pipeline, you could make a direct comparison of the statistics.

Dismissing the opposition to the pipeline as "good ol' NIMBYism" ignores the fact that perhaps people don't like filthy corporations steamrolling over their concerns for property values and personal safety.

The fact that residential gas lines can produce this kind of resuilt shows the fallacy of your statement....

Actually, the size and harm caused by incidents doesn't vary much based on the size of the pipeline. There are numerous transmission line incidents which result in no fires, or cause minimal harm; and numerous residential lines that someone broke with a backhoe that result in big explosions.

Carbon monoxide poisoning kills around 500 people per year. In contrast, an average of 2 people per year die in gas pipeline explosions. And 5,700 Americans die from food poisoning every year.

I'm 2,850 times more likely to be killed by eating in a neighborhood restaurant than I am to be blown up in a gas explosion. So which of these two should concern me?

And what do you plan to do, rip out every residential gas line in JC?

What about the gas lines that already run through Woodbridge and Carteret and Sayreville, to the massive storage facility in Linden?

The point is that we've already decided as a society that natural gas lines are an acceptable risk. While the installation and placement should get input from affected citizens, it's also important to realize that much of the objection is good ol' NIMBYism.

Congress passed the laws which determine how FERC operates and who has oversight. So like I said: If Congress wants oversight, all they have to do is change the law.


What the hell PR firm do you work for?

Your averages are meaningless. Who is more likely to die in a pipeline accident, someone twenty miles away from one, or someone living on top of one?

When the light rail tracks were heavy rail (passenger/freight) there were a number of steel truss bridges that crossed the tracks. You can find the remains of a few in that area. They're about a hundred years old, but look older because of the use of ashlar stones.

The pipeline is currently under construction in the area. See the big tent next to the self storage facility at Coles and 18th and another site at the western terminus of 10th Street by Brunswick.

Why not just fill in a pathway using rocks/dirt from nearby excavation projects?? create an earthen path, then just add an asphalt or rock path on top of it with fencing??

The canal is used for nothing in that section and will most likely be filled in anyway.



The Mill Creek Sewer outfall is just upstream from the bridge.
