Ha, apart from the hilarity inherent in this sequence ... of all the things families need, why is parking the one we should provide them for free at considerable cost to society?

Why would anybody charge an "arm and a leg" for parking only to let the space go unused?

The only reason parking costs an "arm and a leg" anywhere is that parking is an extremely uneconomical and inefficient use of space, and when the cost of parking is dictated by supply and demand it's very expensive.

It's just amazing to me to hear people complain that parking is too expensive in a given place, without realizing that actually parking is too cheap almost everywhere.

Sorry -- why not have people in more valuable homes pay more taxes?

I understand the abatements will amplify any impact of the reassessment, but not revaluing also has an impact: you're asking people in properties that haven't increased as much to continue paying the same taxes as people in properties that have increased more.
By not revaluing, you're placing a disproportionate burden on people in poorer parts of the city.

It is incredible how awesome a block becomes after the simple act of closing it to traffic.
Right now, it is idyllic. Just a beautiful, chill, cool little block.
Why anyone wants to ruin it with cars is really hard for me to understand.

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

OK so here's my question ... when the PATH announces a signal problem or whatever, they say the train is running with "15 minute delays."

What exactly does this mean? If the trains are scheduled to run in six-minute increments, if all trains are delayed 15 minutes are they still at six-minute increments?

Or does it mean that the increments become 15 minutes?

Or does it mean the trains are just mad slow

For all the talk about expanding capacity and adding new stops, it seems like the best solution is just to run trains more often. PATH is crowded at rush hour, yes, but my biggest gripes are not at rush hour but at random off-peak times when you wait 20 minutes for a train and there are 5 billion people trying to get on with you.

Or, for example, just not running the WTC train on weekends anymore.

I just don't think it's a capacity problem, I think it's a service problem.

I had a lengthy conversation with a real estate broker I know about this (living in a 4th-floor walkup myself) and he told me the same thing.

Basically, it might take you longer to find a buyer/renter because the market's restricted to younger people and usually not families.

Re: Super Bowl renting?

Does anyone have any opinions about the supposedly enormous prices expected to be paid for places to stay during Super Bowl weekend?

I've seen plenty of people listing their places for $1K-plus but have any of these places actually rented?

I have to think the whole thing is overblown, for the very simple reason that everyone knows about it. If there's anyone willing to pay $500 a night for a run-of-the-mill 1BR in Jersey City, there are going to be 5,000 listings.

Re: New PATH train schedules starting this Sunday

Sent the PATH a message asking how they could justify cutting back service amid record ridership. Amazingly, got a prompt reply:

Hi, Dan –

Thanks for reaching out.

We are very aware of the growing demand for PATH in the region, and have a number of modernization and capital projects in process to help expand capacity. Though we lost a few months of progress on these programs due to Superstorm Sandy, work is now being done again. You can read about some of these programs here: http://www.panynj.gov/path/path-modernization.html

In the near future, we are also planning on expanding the platform capacity for stations on the Newark – WTC line to allow for 10-car trains. We are currently only able to run 8-car trains on that line due to shorter platforms at Grove Street Station. With the purchase of additional cars, we will also be able to expand our schedule once the Automatic Train Control signal program has been completed.

In the meantime, targeted service reduction is necessary in order to allow for work on these capital programs to continue, and for post-Sandy repairs to be completed. Our Transportation Division takes a number of factors into account when suggested changes to the schedule, including travel demand forecasts, ridership patterns, passenger feedback, and connections to other services, to name a few. We appreciate your understanding and patience with the new schedule.

I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,
Chris

PATH Customer Service

Are we sure about this new schedule thing? Not putting a schedule currently in effect (as of yesterday, right?) and leaving the old one up on the website seems beneath even the PATH.

I just want to +1 all the complainers and haters and -1 the supporters of the PATH system.

And I also want to give a huge +1 to whoever asked why the real estate developers aren't lobbying for better PATH service. The region whose real estate would benefit from more consistent and frequent PATH service is worth literally billions of dollars in new development; nobody thought to have a sit-down with the two states about that?

I might reject this premise. JC still seems mostly designed for cars and in many places downright hostile to pedestrians.

Some of the most populated areas even in Downtown (thinking Grand and Columbus here) are basically highways and I struggle to think of a single example of anything the city's done to become more pedestrian-friendly.

5 blocks of bike lanes after like all of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Hoboken et alia are already painted over with bike lanes is a minor effort, in the scheme of things.
