Re: Two Beautiful Trees Gone on Erie Street!
#1
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Jasco management building requested the removal. According to the department of forestry Jasco submitted an application to have the trees remove pending sidewalk repair. When I spoke to a Mr. Lunch at 201.547.4449 (dont quote me word for word) with the side walk repair the roots may be damaged and kill the trees. Now, I am not an engineer but why not leave the trees and deal with replacement later if needed. Part of the application permit was Jasco has to replace the trees.. But these were full grown beautiful tress that added to the beauty of HP. The tenants of this building are just as upset as our HP neighbors. My opinion in the Department of Forestry jumped the gun on allowing the trees to be removed and should be held to some accountability. (again, i dont know what the details of the repair are.. but I have seen many sidewalk repairs without tress being cut down). You can always call the department of forestry and jasco management in Jersey City to voice your option. Thanks for noticing...

And regarding the number 9 bus. l used to take it every day when I got my first job in NYC. There was a woman who was a dwarf who took the bus at the same time every morning. The mean busdrivers would never lower the bus for her, so one day I offered to help her. She was so little that I had to eventually pick her up and carry her up the stairs. I ended up doing that every morning for a year...........lol. I'm sure nobody cares, but it's killling me.


Think I remember her... worked with her at the Jersey Journal selling newspaper subscriptions at night.. her name was Sandy, hard time walking and her hair was all over the place. Maybe its the same person.

LOU's dinner on Ocean. There was another small dinner on Ocean, between Cator and Danforth Avenue. The fish market on Danforth avenue and Meat City (?) on Ocean Avenue that sold bad meat. Clean-o-Rama, TONYS tailors with the albino guy that worked there back in the 70s. ARROW soda (?) was by HALLS on OCean avenue. You would go and buy a case of bottled soda (mixed Flavor) and return the empty bottles for a new batch. OMG, Barones Pizza (spelled wrong I'm sure) on Garfield by ACME.

Just noticed them today for the first time. Made eye contact and she said "hey baby - how are you". Guess if they are not hurting anyone they should be left alone. Then again, if they were getting drunk in my neck of the woods, I'd be concerned. Then again, Newak avenue is still a mess anyway.

This hits all my hot buttons about Jersey City.

First, we need to start a "DONT TRASH JERSEY CITY" campaign. Many parts of this town are an absolute disgrace, looking like a 3rd world country. I am from the west where littering is not socially acceptable. We need a program in JC in schools, churches, and community centers to let people know its not cool, and disrespects all of us.

THe City needs to enforce the program with tickets and fines, and of course, it would help to see alot more foot and bike patrols by the JCPD.

Permanent signs and banners should be put up around town, in multiple languages, and should also mention that violaters will be fined.

Street cleaning staff positions could be reassigned to street patrols, as it doesnt do much good to clean the streets when the sidewalks are filthy.

One way too encourage neighborhood efforts would be to allow an area to opt out of 4 day a week street sweeping once they met a cleanliness criteria in their area, which is being trialed in NYC.

Cleaning up JC should not be an impossible task...


We need hefty fines for people who litter, period!!!
In Thailand (I think ) you get public lashing for littering, and forget graffiti..

Charge $500 for the season, keep the trash out! Not trying to be rude or anything... but if the Golf Course costs $$$$$, why can't they make a private or more costly pool club and keep it really nice.

I believe there should be something for everyone, and there seems to options for those that may not be able to afford a seasonal membership. I want a cabana boy to bring me towels and mist me with cold water, cocktails and lunch pool side.. thats what Im talking about... LOL (not really)

Hey, what pool was supposed to open? That would be great if a nice pool club opened. Way way, okay.. WAY back in the day.. there was a pool called the cabaƱa club at the foot of LSP.... then I guess it became public, and eventually close down. This is exactly what JC needs.

Oh Zick! LOL, you trying to play dirty? Really, if you wanted a recommendation for a good cleaners, you should have just asked me directly.. But, my suggestion is you just smile next time you go in and I am sure they will be just as nice. Its just my humble opinion that perhaps you are the issue... Still would love to know what happened to cause you to be so vocal.

Just got back from Hamilton Park and the park is spectacular except for the litter. I am not into complaining about it anonymously on the internet so if anyone wants to come to the park with me and confront the people who are littering email me with your telephone number to dan AT jclist.com

I am into in person confrontation; if we can get a group of 4-10 people to confront the obvious offenders on a regular basis; I am open to all solutions.

I am thinking that we can do one or more of these ideas:
1. stand on the basketball court and demand that all trash be picked up before we allow play to resume
2. kick the trash onto the court and put the basketballs in the garbage
3. Call the police and back them up when they enforce the law.
4. Throw all the trash in the garbage including the half full and full drink containers.

This needs to be done from day one, the people playing basketball seem decent enough to get the message if we are united and do not back down. Too many of us are walking past the court and ignoring the obvious, this sends the wrong message.

I am available for litter patrol tommorow afternoon.


I am 100% with you. They have to be held accountable. If I bring my lunch into the park, I am bringing the trash home with me or dumping it into a garbage can. I have no problem standing in the middle of the court and disrupting the game to get a point across.

Keeping the court was not only a great idea, it was essential. Clearly a ton of people agree in light of the amount of people using it.

A host of ways to inspire? Please share! I am very curious how to we inspire these basketball players to keep the court clean. Oh, I have an idea. Shut the court down and post signs if the court is not kept clean, it can not be used. Im not being rude, but I really think the majority of these kinds just don't care. So, please prove me wrong!

I go to Dr Jorden Alter (sorry, he is actually in Bayonne),, but i know a few JC residents that go to him. Late hours, think until 8pm on some night. Sundays as well. Great staff, friendly and personable. Works great with his hands and always checks on you to ensure you are okay.

Just in case anyone missed all the fun with this group in Jersey City or Hoboken yesterday, or wants to do some more counter-protesting they'll be in Chatham early on Saturday morning.

You can find out where and when on their website if interested.

I wonder where these people stay when they go on these trips - I mean, what hotel would want these people staying there given the potential for more drama? They must keep a really low profile wherever they stay and eat, or go camping instead.



I was wondering as well, where they stayed. There was a black SUV with PA plates that dropped them off and picked them up. While in Hoboken, they just strolled up first street, crossed Washington Street, behind the barricades, took out the signs and started to picket. It was like they were going to the corner store. UGHHH. I may even be up for a drive to Chatam tomm morning if anyone wants to go.
