Do yourself a favor and head over to Coles Street between Pavonia and 9th St. They close the street to cars and almost all the houses are well decorated and are giving out candy. Mid to late afternoon and into the evening.

Re: Cordero Principal Strynar retiring!!!

I went inside that school a few months ago to register my kids for the pre-school lottery. I was very disappointed. The JC public schools are given an insane amount of money and yet the schools DON'T have central air conditioning???!! After all these decades???!!! That's crazy. The entire building looks like it's never been renovated at all after almost 100 years of existence. I checked out the Principles office. Nobody was in it. However I did notice that the office stunk like the bottom of an ashtray. What the hell is that? You mean to tell me this Principal is able to break the law by smoking in a public building (not to mention a building that's full of children) and keep his job for almost 50 years???!!! Sickening.

Regardless of where you sit in the political spectrum, you ought to be asking yourself why is the mainstream media so out of touch with the realities of the current political winds. All the way until yesterday, most outlets were predicting a loss for the Republicans that would show how support for Trump had eroded and which could be harbinger of more bad news and perhaps even the beginning of the end for his presidency. Despite a reported $23MM investment by the Democratic Party, their candidate still lost. If that kind of money can't secure an election victory, there should be some serious soul searching as to why that is, and how to fix that problem.

Now, today, much is being made about the fact that the margin of victory was slim (just a hair under 4%) and the meaning of that, but what is being ignored by most (but, surprisingly, it was highlighted by an NPR analyst) is the fact that Handel made a HUGE comeback after garnering under 20% of the general vote during the first round of voting that led to this runoff election.

Ultimately, why are CNN, NYT, and all these other news outlets, getting it so wrong in forecasting these elections? Why is the "Trump voter" so underestimated or improperly polled or missed? These are all questions that will gain more importance and urgency as the mid term elections approach.


Quick answer: Because it's the reporting by the MSM and the polls conducted by the pollsters in conjunction with the MSM are more a reflection of wishful thinking than they are a reflection of objective analysis.
And this results in the Democratic constituency shaking their heads at the ultimate resulsts and wondering "HOW CAN THIS BE???!!!" It's because they happily drink the Kool-aid they are given.

I love the anti-Trump chalking and I hope it continues. I laugh at it every time I see it. It shows to me and everyone else how petulantly childish the left can be. And I think many others feel that way when they see the chalk. It only helps republicans for 2018 and beyond in my opinion. Chalking on the sidewalk is something many children do after all. So I say chalk away losers/haters.

Re: Pediatricians

Tribeca Pediatrics is owned and founded by Dr. Michael Cohen. His approach to childcare permeates the Tribeca Pediatrics practice. He is from France so the approach to children's healthcare is a little bit more "laissez-faire" than your typical practice in the U.S. That being said I wouldn't characterize it as "crunchy"
He wrote a book called "The New Basics: A-to-Z Baby; Child Care for the Modern Parent”. If you read a few pages of it you'll probably get a feel for the approach Tribeca Pediatric takes. I've been taking my 2 children there since they were born and they've done OK by me. My kids have been fully immunized like clock-work.

This city can't even fund its own necessary city expenditures right now and it wants to impose a new tax to spend on the luxury of acquiring land unesssarily?? F that.
Just watch who they buy the properties from- developers and people that are cronies to the politicians. No thank you.

Re: Cost of Day Care in the Downtown JC area

I pay $1,616 per month for my 3 year old to attend full time at The Brunswick School. That's 5 days a week from 8:15am to 7:00pm each day. The school is year-round (no need to worry about summer break) and it has less holiday closures than is typical in most schools. The price also includes breakfast, lunch and snacks. No need to worry about packing a lunch everyday.

If it wasn't for fast food poor people would have no enjoyable places to eat out. Not everybody can afford the latest avant-garde Jersey City restaurants for their dining pleasure. Besides there's nothing wrong with fast food enjoyed in moderation (like everything else).

Jersey City is no different than any other city. Everyone is free to live - in their own separate sections.

But seriously, if the current dichotomy in Jersey City bothers you well you need look no further than the decades of increasingly progressive liberal government that has been overseeing the situation all along.

Is there an economic metric that grades a city's ability to fund its own expenditures? Because I'd believe we'd fail that horribly. Especially in light of how much wealth has been brought into JC.

Ha ha ha! Agreed, Adonis. I don't normally call on them for much, or anything. But, I have seen residents ask them to arrange for all kinds of things, including calling for a car/taxi pickup. On a couple of occasions in which I have left my keys inside, they have always graciously handled that for me And, totally agreed on more or less the same list of tasks: accept/handle packages, dry cleaning, newspaper deliveries, etc. They are also the doormen for the building and do so graciously about 99% of the time. On one occasion, they really came in really handy, when PSEG decided to do some unannounced ("emergency") repair work on the street and they had the police tow away cars from the area, and the concierge took the time to track me down, and call me, and I was able to get the car moved without it getting towed somewhere.



Agreed. I don't use our concierge for much of anything. But I do know that many times they are invaluable to other residents.

Re: Condo maintenance fee

My building is a 58-unit building in downtown that is almost 10 years old. The maintenance fee ranges from $4.74 per square foot per year to $5.32, depending upon what floor you are on. It's a 6 story building. The fee pays for a part-time concierge, a super and a porter for trash. The only real common amenity is a large roof deck with bbq grills, tables, chairs, landscaping, etc. Parking in the building is extra. We have a very healthy reserve fund which we have not had to tap into yet. One thing that has kept our finances pretty good is this: there is a policy written into the by-laws by the developer that requires a payment of 3-months common charges to be paid to our operating fund and a similar 3-months common charge payment to our reserve fund each time a unit is sold. The 2 separate payments are made by the new owner. These 2 payments are in addition the regular maintenance fees they are on the hook for once the sale closes. There are usually about 5 or 6 re-sales each year.
