Club Barks Jersey City closing
#1
Newbie
Newbie


On Wednesday we received an email that the Club Barks in Jersey City will be going out of business and closing Friday, December 6 (2 days notice). Does anyone know what happened? Pretty crazy giving people who have been customers for 5+ years 2 days notice to make arrangements for your pet while at work. They just renovated that entire facility in order to isolate the vet office that is attached.

I was there yesterday as well. Emergencies services units were at the end of hudson and essex streets in paulus hook (at the kayak ramp near colgate clock). It was all caution taped off. Cop told me "someone died" but couldn't say anything else because it was an "open police investigation." Odd I haven't seen a peep about it anywhere online or in the news. Anyone stumble across a link?

No, all that traffic congestion was caused by the off-leash dogs in morris canal park

Anyone have any idea when this project will resume? It looks like the boys and girls club has moved on over to 18park…any word on the demo timeframe of the old boys and girls club building?

You probably won't see much of the hotel. On that site, there will also be two 40-story residential buildings (by Fisher - the developer of Crystal Point.) In fact, construction of those towers will likely begin in the spring, well before the hotel gets started.


do you have any other info/renderings of those 2 buildings?

That happens all over the place, not sure what to do about it. What I find even more disturbing is when young children fund raise for whatever group they belong to, in the middle of the exit ramp off the turnpike extension heading into the Holland Tunnel, or other street locations. No fund raising activity is important enough to ask kids to stand out in the middle of traffic.



Yes I agree. Perhaps if enough people call the number Heights posted, something will be done. And contrary to the thoughts of "blanquiita" (who doesn't know me from Adam), I do care...but not to the point where I would want to put up with what happened Friday. It's amazing how you can judge me based on one post. Little do u know that I am a middle school science teacher who teaches under-privileged children in Perth Amboy...and I am actively involved with parents and the community. May I point out, not once have I seen canning for money in Perth Amboy - which has more problems than most places in Jersey City. I thank my neighbors who took the time to articulately answer my post and give meaningful feedback (VA2015, dtjcview, heights and mscottc), as opposed to the ones who have nothing else to offer besides sarcasm and wasting everyone elses time (blanquiita and langdonalger).

and VA2015, very nice of you...maybe I will do the same with regards to how I donate to charity

I always thought the London Big Issue was a great template for helping the homeless. I believe it has been successfully implemented in countries outside the UK (like Australia and South Africa). Why not Jersey City?



http://www.bigissue.com/about-us

"The Big Issue was launched in 1991 by Gordon Roddick and John Bird in response to the growing number of rough sleepers on the streets of London. The two set out to address the problem of homelessness by offering homeless people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income; to ‘help them to help themselves’.

Twenty years on the organisation has helped thousands of vulnerable people to take control of their lives, and currently works with around 2000 homeless and vulnerably housed people across the UK.

In order to become a Big Issue vendor an individual must prove that they are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and must undergo an induction process and sign up to the code of conduct. Once they have done so they are allocated a fixed pitch and issued with a number of free copies of the magazine. Once they have sold these magazines they can purchase further copies, which they buy for £1.25 and sell for £2.50, thereby making £1.25 per copy.

Last year alone we put more than £5million in the pockets of our vendors, releasing them from a dependence on hand-outs and providing an alternative to begging.

And we don’t stop there. We recognise that earning an income is first step on the journey away from homelessness. The Big Issue Foundation, a registered charity, exists to link vendors with the vital support and services. The organisation offers advice and referrals in four keys areas; housing, health, financial independence and aspirations, and relies almost entirely on voluntary donations.

Over the past two decades the magazine has become synonymous with challenging, independent journalism, and renowned for securing exclusive interviews with the most elusive of superstars. It currently circulates over 105,000 copies every week.

Created as a business solution to a social problem The Big Issue has gone on to become one of the most instantly recognisable brands in the UK and a powerful blueprint for social change which has inspired hundreds of imitations; from Johannesburg to Tokyo, Sydney to Addis Ababa, Perth to Sao Paolo, Seoul to Nairobi, The Big Issue is leading a global self-help revolution. "




I agree...why not us? Thanks for responding and taking the time to research and post your input. It really does boil down to what can our leaders do to help these low income people get back off their feet so they don't have to do this.

Can you possibly find it in your heart to explain to your family, that there are people worse off than you and yours? If you can't, maybe you're unclear on how life works. Low income housing by a highway exit? I know, sounds incredible. How could you possibly justify this uncomfortable fact of life? Posts like yours make me want to move.


So what you are saying is that it is okay for drivers to be harassed at their car by people looking for money? Interesting. I would like to see how you would react when one of these people start walking down the exit pounding on the hood of your car, like what happened friday morning. People were ready to get out of their car and tackle this guy, it was a pretty big problem that created quite a backup of traffic. Not only that, but it became extremely unsafe for the man that was canning, as well as the drivers that exited their car to restrain him. But this is okay because there is a low income housing complex nearby isn't it? If this post offends you so much why don't you move? Better yet, move into the low incoming housing complex and become neighbors with these people. "Heights" thank you for the info, you are correct that this should not be occuring on a public highway. At least somebody around here has the guts to admit it without feeling insensitive. Sorry if my standards are too high for you all...but I pay to live here, and I want to feel safe. I moved here b/c it was nice and up-and-coming, not because it was Camden.

Canning for money off 78 exit ramp
#12
Newbie

I'm curious as to what most people think about this. I feel like lately there have been a lot more men doing this, as traffic comes off the Columbus Drive exit ramp (and even the other side of that barricade waiting at the light to cross Montgomery). Is this legal? I never see any police presence enforcing this if it's not. It has gotten a little out of control lately, Friday the guy walking up and down between the cars was cursing obscenities at people in their cars who would not give him change. There are at least 3 or 4 different males who are constantly canning/begging for money throughout the day. At the risk of sounding insensitive, it is the first impression you get when driving into jersey city. I just had my whole family visit me this past weekend and it really doesn't make jersey city look that good when you have homeless people begging for money the moment you enter our city. Can't anything be done about this? I know there's other concerns that are most likely more important (insert off-leash dog joke here), however it is an issue that I would like to hear other's thoughts on in this forum. Again, I can't imagine how hard things are on the low income/homeless - but it really doesn't give our home a good image. Maybe there is something the Fulop administration could do to get rid of this and benefit these struggling citizens at the same time. I've tried searching online about this topic but came up empty. Hence, here I am...thoughts?... Thanks in advance

Great site for future real estate developments. I posted a new thread asking what building will be put in place of the old boys and girls club...found my answers all on this site. Has things about 18 park, 235 grand (old boys and girls club site), morris canal park/colgate park, columbus towers and a few other future developments.

Re: An open letter to the Dog Owners of DTJC (brace yourselves)

I see this thread has become award winning since last i visited....my thoughts (from one ranger fan to another):

Regarding leash laws:

Hamilton Park - 100% 24/7 all dogs must be on leash. Way too much going on over there for them not to be.

Van Vorst Park - 100% 24/7 all dogs must be on leash. I know all the hard work and effort that went into refurbishing that park, and the beautiful landscaping and flowers that encompass the inside. An amazing job was done by all there, and in no way should dogs be allowed to traipse through and ruin it all.

Morris Canal Park - I think we need to have some leniency there with regard to off leashing dogs. As Colleen stated, if my dog is offleash all the way out by the point, is it REALLY bothering u that much out there? In fact, I actually was there this week with my dog (on leash) and saw a cop there w/ his canine (off leash) playing out by the point. I asked the cop about leash laws and he said as long as it's not bothering anyone out here, it shouldn't be a problem, just make sure u pick up after ur dog - we want to keep the park clean for everyone to use. What that cop said is probably the most reasonable statement I have heard or read regarding this matter. And also, I've read some people posting about getting an active dog in an urban environment. Well, I'm sorry that wasn't going through my mind when my future to-be-adopted dog was on the "kill list", when i rescued him.

As far as I'm concerned we should only become anal retentive over-actors about dogs being off leash (in an area that affects barely anyone) if we see a refurbishment like this:

Resized Image

As far as not picking up dog crap: That sh*t needs stop everywhere. People like that should not have dogs. In retrospect, I do agree with many points in this thread. However, I do feel it should not be all one-sided as some are trying to make it out to be. The point out in Morris Canal Park needs to be some sort of concession by nyrgravey and the other prosecutors about off leashing dogs EVERYWHERE. I do retract my stance if and when they decided to refurbish the park.

Boys and Girls Club/Gulls Cove 2
#17

It finally looks like construction workers have begun disassembling parts of the roof and side of the boys and girls club on Grand Street. I've noticed workers taking apart huge metal beams behind the bball court and transporting them out today. 18 Park is coming along very quickly (the future home of the boys and girls club)...does anyone know the anticipated start date to the building of Gulls Cove 2 (if that's still even the name?)? Last I heard it was going to be 2 buildings - 1 about 10 stories and the other 45 stories (not sure about the height in feet but would love to know if anyone has an idea). Is this information still accurate? I have an old link that someone posted a long time ago with renderings, not sure if it's still the actual plan:

If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated. I live right next to this. Thank in advance

Someone put a hole in the concrete of the pool somehow back in early/mid June. I remember the day it happened - i was there til 5:30 and everything was fine. I came back around 8 (to use the gym next to the pool) to the maintenance guy scoping out a giant hole in the shallow end. No one has an idea as to how it happened but thank goodness it's fixed!

Are we really complaining about people unleashing their dogs out by the water...all the way at the end of Morris Canal Park? I get being pissed off about the dog crap...that's very annoying and irresponsible, as stated - and needs to be fixed. It's amazing, either stupid people have to ruin it for everyone or people always have to complain about something. Sounds like both situations are occurring here. Is it really that big of a deal that I go out and throw a frisbee to my dog out at the point of Morris Canal Park? I'm really trying to understand why we are focusing so much on this aspect. I'd like to take my dog out to an open park and play a simple game of catch w/ a ball or frisbee, yet b/c of crappy dog owners, now we have a vendetta ongoing against it. And yes, it's a vendetta when we have complainers, winers and bitchy people hiding behind computer screens threatening to choke and kick dogs. How about people pick up after their dogs? Also, how about if your dog is well trained (which isn't a hard thing to do if you are competent person) you can unleash him/her out to the point to run around and play catch, or go for a swim (insert dirty river joke here)? I mean c'mon...aren't we being a little over the top here?
