People should take a little time and study up on the life of Alexander Hamilton (and as well his benefactor George Washington). They were not the historical figures portrayed in modern history.
This book is a great revelation concerning the character of these two:

My grandparent's home was across from the Montgomery Gardens (Projects). After WWII Urban renewal plans were allotted to level all of those blocks right down to the turnpike. Families had no choice and had to get out after a decided upon fee was paid. Neighborhoods disappeared in a short time around Fremont, Wayne, Montgomery etc. It was quite a wrenching experience for families. In actuality, there was nothing wrong with the homes, businesses, schools etc. which were demolished, it was a political decision. I don't recall the slums or mud huts that are being alluded to here. Were any of the posters there when it happened? I was. Generations of families were moved from in many cases the homes that they were born into. Today those homes would be assessed at ridiculous amounts and taxed commensurately.

So many factors contributed to the changes in Jersey City from the sixties onward. All of them contributed to white flight to the suburbs and a replacing of the cultures and practices mentioned in the article.
Looking now at what's become of some of the wonderful neighborhoods that existed in my youth I just shake my head in bewilderment. But then, everything changes, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

I remember back in the fifties walking into an Italian deli on Brunswick street with my Grandfather. He would use a big metal scoop to take the cavatelli out of a burlap gunny sack that was in a keg.
I can't describe what Italian pastry tasted like back then. A cannoli and the pasta chote had taste that still linger in my memory. There was a baker--I think on First street--called Umbep. He was a beautiful man--always gave you a little something when you went into the shop.
There's still some old timers in my father's neighborhood on Colgate who remember. If you're lucky they're out in front of their houses when the sunny weather rolls in come springtime.

Even though murders tend to be everyday occurrences in our times, there is something especially heinous about this poor woman's death. She was all alone in the United States. Maybe she was just responding in a kind way to her murderer. And as well, I don't recall the lake ever being part of so horrible a crime. People will always think of what happened there in connection with this horrid act.
I know that not all of the people who come here as illegals are vile creatures as was this cretin, but Mayor Fulop still should be careful about disregarding the laws of the land. He made this guy feel welcome, offered sanctuary to him and he brought danger to Jersey City with that welcome.

For shame....

A large question remains to be answered: there were other cities and states offering quite a bit more in incentives. For instance, Newark had about six billion dollars in the pot. So why did Amazon choose the NY area? They had to know that Unions were going to scramble to get into their buildings (they're presently trying to organize a hundred million dollar Staten Island distribution center). When this thing is looked at under closer scrutiny I've a feeling that more reasoning of a personal nature (read Bezos) will come to light. There's more than meets the eye and good investigative journalism will uncover it.

I wonder how many noticed that Cuomo went to see Trump with hat in hand yesterday to get some help with that 2.3 billion shortfall in his budget a main topic of the meeting.
Think he and other NY politicos are somewhat miffed at the turn of events?

Hoboken did something like that in the early 2000s (but it wasn't low cost). It was an automated parking garage that would stow your car using a lift system. The original plan was to not have attendants. It was to be 100% automated.

The system when it was first implemented kept making headlines of having destroyed people cars. One example I remember is some poor guy's trunk opened up and the lifting system caught it and launched his car off the lift, dropping it down multiple stories.

https://hoboken411.com/archives/87561


That's not at all what I was talking about. Have you ever parked in the JSQ lot?

Even so, Hoboken has a couple of municipal lots that allow people to get off the streets and curbs . Some of the large apartment buildings down by the water have great parking complexes attached to the living areas at very reasonable fees. These efforts help to make the "miracle mile" habitable. Jersey City needs to do the same before the situation becomes intolerable. Even North Bergen has some great arrangements which keep cars off the streets. Why is Jersey City dragging its feet on such a serious situation?

I can't understand why--with the tax revenue that surely should be pouring in--the city can't build a number of centrally located low cost or no cost parking desks for residents.
Population increase looks to be a situation which will continue as long as NYC rates stay high and developers continue their building spree. A facility that can hold as many cars as the JSQ lot behind the Loew's would give so much relief to an area. Just imagine what five of them might do to help with parking difficulties.

My point exactly Monroe.
The city is doing a favor to special interests--everybody gets greased--and the people wind up pointing at one another as the problem. Not too long ago there was ample parking on the street, but obviously that had to go when thousands of new living units came into being.
That's major irresponsibility on the part of planning boards and overall administration. Free municipal parking decks for residents should be provided by developers.

But for heaven's sake, don't blame your neighbor and try to assign extra costs to their budgets.

Along with the annual fifteen dollar fee for resident zone parking stickers how about we apply a digital process that reads plates and adds a surcharge for a proximity parking tax. The closer you park to your house the more you pay for the privilege ? It is similar to resident parking permits but on a temporary basis.


Here we go again.
The municipality allows wealthy corporate interests to disrupt the lives of ordinary people and other people step up to offer solutions that will infringe on rights that they had (free, available parking) prior to these disruptions.

Why should people offer costly solutions to problems that the administration creates?--doesn't make sense.

I think that it's somewhat tragic to see people arguing among themselves --even to the point of endorsing taxes and fees for driving certain vehicles--when the fault lays with the administration allowing haphazard development of the city. The attack on infrastructure simply does not allow quality of life under the stressful building program Jersey City is permitting.

It will surely worsen, judging by recent new acquisitions below the Square area (Puccini's) and developments up in the West Side and elsewhere. Jersey City is the belly for the ravenous appetite of New York City. A gigantic bellyache and worse is on the horizon.
