They're here. Jersey @ Bright.

It seems to be in limbo for the moment as the city government and jcmua look for political cover from all the city corruption. This gift to preferred union patrons will certainly come back to haunt us when enough time has passed. Steve Fulop - I will only vote for you again if you force the jcmua and office of construction code to drop this for good.

I have to conclude that they had an oppressive lease, signed at the height of the real estate boom.
I liked the food at OX and didn't think it was extraordinarily expensive in comparison to NYC restaurants. But for the average JC resident, it was on the high end, so it wasn't going to be a once-a-week affair. OX probably needed to be filled every night to make their monthly nut.
Hopefully, they will open a new joint soon, with a more reasonable lease that allows for JC oriented pricing.

Brainwashed simpleton. What is this high standard of living of which you speak?

Absurd taxes?
Ridiculous city government?
Must mean all the brand spanking new projects.

It has been suggested to me that instead of complying with this ridiculous backflow preventor scheme, the 1700 buildings that are being targeted by the city for annual testing fees instead each pony up $1000 to a lawyer who then sues the city. It would be a heck of a lot cheaper than putting in some over-engineered back-check.

This is a code that hasn't been enforced since it went on the books.
It is a code that is not enforced in any other major NJ city.
If it is so important, how is that new condos and conversions received Certificates of Occupancy without the special backflow preventor?
Perhaps the JCMUA and Office of Construction Code should be sued for failure to fulfill it's governmental responsibilities?

While I appreciate Fulop getting involved with this (I don't think any of the other councilmen would) all he's basically doing is giving us more time to comply, when what he should be doing is to have the Office drop the entire thing. No one needs to be paying $60,000 for something so unimportant at this time.

Received same letter. Had a plumber in who advised us that we had a check on the sprinkler line. Need to bring Office of Construction Code in to tell us whether this is acceptable.
Unfortunately, our plumber told us he was not licensed to work with sprinkler systems. Who might you be using?

Tear it down. Just do it in a way that's accounts for any toxins.

The embankment is an eyesore and creates dangerous zones for pedestrians.

Re: NJCU union protests Corzine's budget cut -"He wants to balance budget on the backs of state work

Since the state started going democrat 30 years ago, it has been trying to catch up to New York with services that only serve the special interests while hard working taxpayers get screwed. It's time to get rid of the unions and other special interests. If you produce no wealth, you should not be getting paid better than those that do. If you work for the gov't and want to retire at 50, the taxpayer should not have to pay for it. If you want "free" healthcare and other freebies that liberals always exclaim to be their "right", maybe you have to start paying for it yourself instead of freeloading off of others, because baby, it's never free.

Every heavily democratic state in this country is in hock up to it's eyeballs because of an approach that says their constituents should get everything for free and that later generations can pay for it. We either end it now or get used to rationing and mediocrity.

I'll be his BFF if he gets rid of the backflow preventor requirement that isn't being enforced anywhere else in the state but just happens to suddenly get enforced here to the benefit of some hand-picked plumbers.

"Oh, but it will protect the children."

Gee, that didn't seem to be enough reason to do this for the last 20 years, and guess what, no children got sick.

They intentionally shot for just over the necessary number of signatures. Getting over a certain number (I forget what, 10,000 or something) would have triggered a special ballot which would have cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars. It was really quite thoughtful and considerate.

Why can't the city just lower it's budget growth from 4 1/2% to 2%, which is the amount of increase the city is still getting from the state?

I love how people, who are in essence using other people's money, cry that they are being treated shabbily when the increase does not meet their expectation.

It's time to cut costs, across the board, and get the financial house in order.

Cased the joint the other weekend.
Very nice and new.
Lovely eastern european Gabriela gave me the tour.
Everything looks top notch and the steam and sauna had me weak kneed.
$74 per month plus initiation fee.
They will knock down the initiation to $50 if you're in the last month of your contract at another gym.

However, all that being said, Gold Coast is $600 for 14 month or about $45 per month to lift heavy objects and run in place. Although the amenities are nowhere near as good as Brickhaus, value made the decision easy.
I'm sure new residents to new Grove Street condos will find Brickhaus and the Super H gym or whatever it is called most appealing. Enjoy.

Hmmm, panicked guy says the grenades on his table don't work. He's sweaty and nervous. Obviously, something serious is on his mind.
Says it's defused. What does a defused grenade look like? I don't know. I'm a freakin' EMT.
But he's not Muslim. So, at least I don't have to worry about getting sued by the ACLU or their lackeys for doing the safe thing and calling the cops.

How can they give you a ticket if you move your car within 2 hours? Does the sign say "2 hour parking" or "2 hour parking within zone?" It's insane if it's within zone. No one can visit you without putting their car in a lot.

Re: Jersey Avenue entrance to Liberty State Park

I live on Jersey Avenue, one block from Grand. If you don't think people are getting off at the LSP exit and trying to negotiate to downtown JC or NYC, you obviously haven't gone running into LSP between 7am and 9am. It's backed up through the park (which people are also commuting to in order to take a ferry.) And Jersey at Grand is a parking lot, with both the hospital (and it's constant emergency vehicles) and the new 4000-student school creating lots of traffic. There are also multiple bus stops.
The city needs to look at developing a traffic plan (a tunnel that goes underneath downtown and comes up at the Holland would be utopian) whereby these cars and trucks would have the smoothest egress to downtown and the big apple.
Making Jersey, south of Grand, a four lane "Expressway" will only invite more traffic and make the area more dangerous for pedestrians, including the many kids crossing to the school and the gigantic boys club down the street on Grand. What's more, you're about to have thousands more people move into the townhouses on Grand, many of whom will probably want to drive somewhere, further increasing traffic.
I also constantly see people who don't know the lay of the land trying to make the connection, which isn't there, between Jersey and LSP, then meander about searching for the road through LSP to Bayonne or wherever they are going. Better signage is in order.
I'm not against opening the road on Jersey Avenue and creating a nice foot-bridge that won't flood everytime it rains, but it needs to be done with consideration for the people already in the vacinity and certainly shouldn't be termed an expressway, parkway, highway or anything else that will give people the idea that it's a high speed shortcut through JC.
OK, back to work.
