I've got to go with Bamboozle on this. I do not know why, but the majority of the 20 years I have been voting in this city I have not received a sample ballot. A few times it has shown up, though it is sporadic. My wife always seems to get one, though I have not had such luck. No sample ballot for me this time around.

Some of my friends have kids in this school. The teachers are nice, the kids are friendly and get along with each other, and they learn. Seems like a fairly reasonable formula. And from the sounds of it, they are doing absolutely nothing wrong. So I'm not quite sure what the issue is?

JCMan8, until you are ready to remove the hood and robes, please refrain from calling anyone racist. I understand that you are blind to your own rapacious bigotry, but all the more reason to shut up and quit embarrassing yourself. It is a good thing this site tends to be anonymous, because anyone whom does not frequent Stormfront would call you out immediately. And you would likely cry, as you have not a leg to stand on. (Because you're racist...)

IGreg. While there are a lot of changes happening and places opening that I would consider to detract from the character of JC, most of the brunch spots listed here are owned independently by people who both live and work in the neighborhood, not investment groups. I would not call them fake. Sure yuppies go there. But that's a lot of who lives here.

Re: Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza -- Reopening?

Not too shy to talk


I agree with Bamb00zle. I like the plaza, and think it is a good idea. I do not think that is incompatible with following the proper procedure. I could be wrong about this, but I have also been told the Harsimus Cove Association felt slighted as they were initially told by city hall there would be a period of time before the opening of the plaza, to address a number of unresolved concerns. If it is true that never materialized, and the closure obviously occurred before a vote by city council on the ordinance, I think it is only appropriate to feel as though it was mishandled. I voted for Fulop, but that does not mean I want him to forgo the necessary procedure. There seems to be a lot of outlook which says, ?it just one block, everybody loves it, whats the big deal?? But if that is the case (and I?m sure there are plenty of varying opinions, as there always are), then the reverse is also true - ?it?s just one block, most people want it, lets work out the kinks, get a solid plan together (including an artistic rendition of what to expect - it currently is just straight up ugly), and do it the right way by first passing an ordinance.?

Timing is everything. I have a friend who lives above the plaza. He doesn?t mind the noise and festivities (though I could imagine it being awful if you do not want to live above a party some of the time). I have spend a few nights hanging out there and I?ve noticed that during peak hours, when you have families, bar patrons etc hanging around, it can be an awesome and lively vibe. But leaving late at night, past the midnight hour, it has a sketchier and less welcoming feel. I love the concept, but am wary of the execution. I do not like that the ordinance has not passed, and the plaza been hastily executed. I know it is not permanent, but it sends the wrong message to us as citizens. Essentially, it says, ?we can hurry this through, seemingly without much planning (are there plans? I?m asking genuinely - urban planner or architect renderings?), and worry about silly little details like ordinances and doing it the right way with a clear vision later.? Also, I?m not into the whole Times Square thing. Times Square could not be farther from what Newark Ave is - a major thoroughfare in the heart of NYC vs. a small two lane street that most people seem to agree has little effect on traffic patterns when closed. Let?s be honest, for what Times Square is, NYC has done a pretty good job of making it work. But there is nothing objectively beautiful about it, and I would hope that we aspire to something far more appealing than what had to be settled for given the nature of Times Square.

The pedestrian plaza. It's ugly. Not much to it. Park tables without the park. Why so easily impressed? Shouldn't we be disappointed it seems ill conceived and is not beautiful? I know, I know...the potential. JC is famous for unactualized potential. To badly paraphrase a tacky Fulop tagline....The Plaza...Make It Happen.

Does Fulop have massive hemorrhoids? Oh wait, that's just Terrance McDonald's feet - way to climb right up there buddy! You're supposed to be objective, but anything you write about our mayor seems like an op-ed. "...before city officials broke them up..." From cops on the street I know, the reason the practice was discontinued, was because it was more of a hinderance than a help. It's okay to have opinions. Just don't dress them up as objectivity.

Eh, I wouldn?t think too much of any of this Piert. Lets face it, these people are painfully uptight, they have themselves to live with, and that?s hilarious. While we?re smoking loosies and drinking beer they?ll be stressing about dog poop and double parking. The cops will ticket for a while, and then resent Fulop for making them security guards rather than police (it?s like going through the trouble of becoming a doctor to end up a school nurse). The whole thing is a joke. Cops who became cops to do something worthwhile resent it, and those of us whom are not watching to see where a dog shits, while we have the police on speed dial, laugh at it. In the meantime, I?ll be sparking one up and cracking a beer and wandering the streets. If I get a fine, hopefully it?ll go towards supporting schools, but most likely, some stupid political position (like High Commander of the Anti-Dog Poop Initiative). Oh well, who cares. At least I?m not one of you uptight jclist a-holes that wastes my time worrying about infractions. Yawn. If only I had enough time to address each and everyone of you uptight freaks and your exiguous concerns - oh right, I have a life. Now, please, let me hear all of your stupid wasted responses that are totally inconsequential. Haha.

I hear ya Piert1025. I actually find people cheering on their neighbors being fined and summoned, to be a compromise of the quality of life. Perhaps a little understanding, even if accompanied by criticism, would temper the complete self-satisfying douchebaggery typically displayed here. The issue is not the ordinances themselves, it is that they need not always be applied. The spirit of the law is to keep people, dogs - whatever - safe, clean, well maintained...civil. But the letter of the law can be used to punish someone drinking a beer on their steps (?work it out in court!?), or letting their dog run off the leash in an uninhabited place which does not pose a threat to dog or person. It is incredible that most of the people on this site, are able to ascertain such critical perspective, given the immeasurable height of the horse from which they view the situation. Forget about the horrid crumbling school system, shootings, murders, entrenched trans-generational poverty - it?s not drinking a beer on the street and leashing your dog that will save us all. I will cut this shorter than I'd like, as I know most of you have to get to planning your Friday night of washing the shart stains out of your underpants and listening to your neighbors with a decibel meter.

"I agree that it is arbitrary and sporadic but I think that can be attributed to Healy and the police chief of his admin."

It's gone on long before Healy, and the police chief had nothing to do with parking enforcement, especially concerning matters such as proximity to crosswalks. If Fulop can fix it, more power to him.

"It's not the governments responsibility to provide a street parking space for all of the permits issued, have you ever tried parking in Hoboken or Astoria Queens? You don't know what "Hard to find a spot" means until you have."

Why would you not expect government to address such a gross oversight? If there is an issuance of permits to residents that exceeds the number of parking spaces available, why should that not be something which the government addresses, if not rectifies? Just because So-broken and Ass-tore-ya are doing it all wrong, does not mean we should also. As a resident of the city, if you pay to park your car on the street, and there is not legal parking available, and there is no other alternative (like a public lot for residents), you are in essence encouraged to park illegally (ie, if the traffic light never went red, you would be encouraged to jaywalk), thereby promoting unsafe parking practices, and then punishing someone whom likely would otherwise have done the right thing if the correct provisions were in place.


"I appreciate when the city enforces these laws because despite your position of it being "deliberate and unprovoked punishment" it helps reduce vehicular accidents and keep pedestrians safe. Your narrow self serving position on the law is not in fact what is in the best interest of the majority of the citizens of the city. If you need proof of this just look through some old posts of accidents on Erie street, all the T-bones around 3rd st. The fact that people park right up to the corner on the cross streets mean that people driving down Erie can't see the drivers on the cross street and the other way around."

We?re not talking about parking right up on the corner, so dont take this argument out of context - that straw man shit is just stupid. We?re talking about someone being seven feet behind the crosswalk, which is perfectly reasonable and realistic in a city.

"Your argument about defenders of the ticketing being pulled over for 1MPH over the limit is a real stretch. 1 point for dramatics."

Thanks for the drama point, but that was the intent of the statement, to be hyperbolic, and articulate that the inane ramblings of persons such as yourself, are tiresome and foolish (though I?m not surprised you missed the point). The notion is that pulling someone over for going 1 mph over the speed limit is analogous to ticketing someone parked within 25 feet of the crosswalk, but posing no danger. So, you?re simple, without the capacity for inference. No points.


"If you want your own parking spot you can pay for one in the many private lots around the city, including Newport Mall. "

I could care less. I dont even have a car. It's the principle. Have any of those? It?s evident you take arguments out of context, and repackage them as something else, because you are unable to make an argument on terms you do not dictate. If you are so enamored with the notion of legalism, I can only hope the enforcement you desire will take effect. Those whom tend to judge as harshly as do you, will surely pad the coiffers of this fine city with compensation from innumerable infractions (albeit, all dull and uninspired, much as you seem to be) - it seems to always be the minister preaching against ?gays and degradation? that ends up smoking meth and banging male strippers. I will await your next sermon.

Re: Downtown JC Ticket Frenzy

The original poster raises a good point. The parking enforcement is arbitrary and sporadic. While it is the law that one should be 25 feet from a crosswalk, that is a realistic impossibility given all of the parking permits issued by the parking authority. If the law is to be obeyed, we should be given ample off-street public parking, particularly given that we are expected to pay (granted a modest fee) to park on a public street, in a city in which we live. The (nearly) spontaneous ticketing that occurs is both terrible business and politics, and does nothing to encourage respect to the authority administering such deliberate and unprovoked punishment, following an unpredictable hiatus. It?s manipulative and disingenuous, and should not be part of how city government conducts itself. I dont think I could name one person that never violates the law (jay walking, tossing a cigarette butt, loitering), and if those laws were enforced as haphazardly as the parking enforcement, this would be a nearly unbearable police state. (I?d be tempted to wager that anyone on this site who defends the ticketing of the OP, is at any given moment in violation of some law, in some form, and would find it needlessly punitive to have that enforced (ie, pulled over for speeding when going 26mph in a 25mph zone, ticketed because your gum wrapper blew out of one the holes in the public garbage can)).

Re: Political Patronage Alive and Well under Fulop Administration

Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


What I find most disheartening is the dismissive nature of responses to Fletch. I didn?t vote for Fletch, and I did vote for Fulop, but I appreciate the point he has raised. Forgive this generalization, but the tone on this site has been blindly anti-Healy and pro-Fulop with little critical thought or analysis (I always thought Healy cared deeply for the city, but was too entrenched with friends and politicians he felt indebted to, which could never have done anything to uplift this poor place). There were plenty of things wrong with the Healy administration, which is why we voted him out. But it?s crazy to me that if you even suggest we scrutinize the decisions Fulop is making, you?re accused of having ?sour grapes,? told that the people being chosen are more qualified than anyone under Healy was, will do a better job, etc (as a blanket response). I know a lot of people whom had ranted and raved about Healy appointing friends and cronies, who now, after having campaigned for Fulop, are the beneficiaries of the positions they were dismayed at others holding. Perhaps these people, and their self-interest, will produce better results, but I?m concerned it will be business as usual. I guess after having voted for Obama and feeling duped, I have my guard up. I worry that like Obama, Fulop may just be a more polished version of the same variety of bad politics.

Not too shy to talk


to nyrgravey9
I lay my head here and am fortunate to know plenty of good people that live around me, but I spend plenty of time elsewhere in the city. I?m lucky to maintain friends and relationships throughout this city?s neighborhoods, some more, or less, desirable than others. I lived downtown for years, in Paulus Hook and near Van Vorst, and I have an affection for many places throughout this city. I moved in part because my salary couldn?t keep up with the rents, but also because as the demographic changed I noticed around me a lot of concern over things which I felt didn?t quite warrant it. I felt as though people were creating major issues out of things that were at worst slight concerns. That attitude made life a drag, and made it difficult to maintain a sense of what truly needs attention and consideration. My own commentary has less to do with the fact that I live one place as opposed to another, and more to do with my frustration that mountains are made of molehills, when there are obvious and larger issues at hand (and sometimes I even get snotty about it). Honestly, I do think that people who dont pick up their dog poop or dont use leashes are assholes, I wouldnt defend them, but I wouldnt tell on them either. I might say something to them directly, because its not cool. But that?s it, they just suck, and then I move on and try to spend some time focusing on things that make more of an impact. Because in the scheme of things, there?s much work to be done, little time to do it, and energy shouldn?t be wasted. Well, I think I may have said all I can about this. Either way, nice disagreeing with you, and good luck. There?s nothing wrong with there being less dog poop, I just dont want to give as much time to the thought as I already have.

nyrgravey9, thank you. It?s true I do read a lot (not much Vonnegut or Chomsky, but thanks for noticing anyway), and though it is unfortunate that words found on the SAT make you uncomfortable, reading your posts has allowed me the luxury of laughing out loud, from the gut, for a good amount of time. I agree my comments are trollish, offering no constructive suggestion other than to grow up and get over it. No, I havn?t stood in the dog park in my free time and taken a survey on leashed and unleashed dogs, or how many times they pooped, or if it was picked up - I guess I was too busy doing something unconstructive (though it sounds like we should hang out). But, I suppose, thanks to the revolutionary fire that burns within your soul, we all will avoid wading through a foot and half of dog poop with packs of feral k9?s nipping holes in our dockers. You are on to something though - it?s long be understood that the amount of dog poop and leashless-ness in a city directly correlates to a failing school system, violent crime rate, child obesity, and inadequate health care. Since you asked, yes, I will gladly give you my address, but you have to keep your promise and pick up and transport pounds of dog poop on a daily basis over to me. Actually, the idea of you and fat-ass showing up at my apartment day after day with copious amounts of dog excrement in hand brings me tremendous delight. And, if each of you leave me your addresses, I will leave books with big words, and half a brain, on each of your doorsteps. Now, stop reading this, so you can back to watching dogs defecate and telling on people.

The revulsion I feel toward so many of the opinions on this thread, should be second only to how sick you make yourselves. I don't understand the slavish adherence to 'the law.' So many of you people are looking to shame, tattle, rat out, your own neighbors - to be fined and punished for something like a leash law. Yes, people should leash their dogs, and pick up the poop, or else the rest of us are inconvenienced. Fine, whatever. Barring some terrible event (like a dog attacking another dog or person, or getting loose and getting hit by a car), which happens fewer and father between that any other repercussion, you are talking about wanting people to watch each other, and tell on each other. Personally, I'd much rather step in, over, and around a pile of dog shit, than have a bunch of uptight, psych-issue laden, immature, first-world problem promulgators getting righteous over essentially nothing when there are some serious causes that could use your energy and attention.

And on the seventh day, god said, 'let there be Fulop.' Jeez people, get a grip. Look, I voted for the guy, and wish him the best, but seriously, what do think is going to happen? He already appointed Lefrak and Silverman to his Real Estate/Redevelopment Team...the next time someone says the Silvermans "care" about Jersey City, I will forgo throwing up in my mouth, and simply throw up in yours. They're business men. They do what's good for them. If that also happens to be what's good for the people of Jersey City, so be it. But if screwing the little guy is going to help the Silverman's or Lefrak, dont fool yourself into thinking otherwise. Only time will tell, but I'm not so optimistic.
