Nothing like a doctor that sells out and loses all credibility:

Re: LOTS of new Stop Signs Downtown

*True* traffic engineers take into account both -- getting cars through as fast as possible, while ensuring safety of pedestrians without stop signs every 50 feet --- which can have a negative impact on pedestrians in the wrong situations (see: 1st and Jersey, when people blow through it and pedestrians think they will stop -- only a matter of time now)

I agree with earlier postings that JC needs to hire *real* traffic engineers for a study of the whole DT area and implement timed traffic lights on Marin (it's a joke now) and put stop signs only where needed (which may be more or less than now -- no idea).

That's why cities hire companies like this: http://www.rkk.com/our-expertise/tran ... traffic/traffic-portfolio

I saw about 60% of the cars driving right by at full speed past the one at 1st & Erie this morning.

Re: What location was your bike stolen from (time, type of lock, etc)?

This was a brazen theft. The bike was unlocked ... BUUUuuut ... it was in my garage (off-street by 30-40 feet). PSE&G workers were all working on installing a new A/C unit 2 feet away from the garage -- literally 2 feet. The second that all THREE workers when into my crawlspace to check out the air handler for my A/C unit (ie, someone wasn't standing 2 feet from the bike), two guys ran in, grabbed the bike and took off. The PSE&G works than chased two two men (one on the bike -- no chance of catching on foot) for about two blocks before the contractors (middle-aged) ran out of steam to catch them. The described both thieves(one was apparently the lookout) as about 6" tall, slender, and African American. Cops responded immedaitely and circles all of downtown but I'm sure they had somewhere to hide-away the bike once the heat was down. Incredibly ballsy to steal a bike by walking 30-40 feet onto private property and knowing that 3 large (though middle-aged) men are less than 10 feet away. They had less than a 2-minute window when they were all at the crawlspace, at all other times, at least 1 or more of the workers was directly next to the bike.

Probably well advised to get someone else to help (right vs. write).

Though I don't know anyone in the area -- stick with someone local and see them in person (don't do some internet form that says that it'll do the trick).

Re: Critical Sewer issue- downtown- 4th/5th/Jersey/Coles
#9

I'm just a little unclear on what the issue is on the first instance. You're saying there's a sewer leak? I all see is a generic statement of a sewage leak somewhere, going towards Coles and 4ths ... and you (and presumably your neighbor) live somewhere on 4th ... I think we need more details here. Or maybe you don't know, and that's the point -- just know there's a leak ... somewhere, going to one place, and don't want to pay for it and want it to stop.

Pictures would be a huge help understand what you're talking about here. I re-read your post 3 times to figure out what you're trying to say, and I'm still not really clear.

What are both of the entities stating, specifically?

What is (or do you believe) is happening in your specific circumstance that you believe may be happening (and are warning others of) elsewhere?

Where do you believe this problem is limited to? just 4 & 5th b/w Coles and Jersey? Or possibly even this one specific location (which would I suppose bolster the entities arguments it's your problem, not theirs). ... and that's why you're reaching out to see if others are having issues so the entities will foot the bill to fix --- which is complete reasonable if it's a problem with their pipe.

Re: Flooding in Jersey City

First post here. I've lived in the Paulus hook area for 2.5 years or so, and I am relocating to downtown area (3rd & Coles). I consider myself fortunate that, really by luck on my part (never crossed my mind before Sandy) that I'm a whopping 3-4 feet higher than surrounding areas that were flooded.

I was outside during the height of the Sandy flooding at this exact location: (yes you can call me stupid)

Google Maps Link

Point B was underwater (as were all points south along the waterfront --- super creepy to see the boats at the marina floating ~8 feet higher than normal), and Google Earth says the elevation there is ~6-7 feet above sea level.. Point A, where I was standing, was high and dry, and Google Earth says the elevation there is ~9-10 feet above sea level.

Where I'm moving, or planning to, at least, at 3rd & Coles, Google earth says is 8 feet above sea level. People in the area tell me they were high and dry. Well, maybe not high, but just on the edge of having flooding, but were not flooded at that precise location.

That would make this NYT flooding map (which I understand is a best guestimate) inaccurate, if only by a block or so:
http://www.nytimes.com/newsgraphics/2 ... -after-the-hurricane.html

See also this cropped pic of that map:

So ... after all that rambling, my question is this: how accurate is this map? Was 3rd and Coles not-so-high, but still dry?

It would be cool if we could crowd source this and mark the true edges of the flooding. Too many little factors/draining, etc. factor into this.

Maybe I'm deluding myself, but I think Sandy is as bad as it's ever going to get in the next 30-years or so, flooding-wise, so I'm happy to move to someplace I know was dry during Sandy, even if it was on the edge.

I guess another way to restate my question more broadly -- is what is the above-sea-level cut-off in JC that survived and did not survive? Based purely on my observation, I think that number is somewhere between 7-9 feet above sea-level. Any consensus on that? Cross-referencing Google earth and the NYT map, they seem to think the cut-off is 10 feet.
