Well, at least we've got a hundred marijuana stores opening soon with a projected billion in taxes generating. That should help the financing of government somewhat.


I truly hope that last line was an attempt at sarcasm. New Jersey will not be seeing a windfall of billions due to legalized weed any time soon, or ever. The way things are playing out, it seems like NYS will beat NJ to legalization.


How do I know? I read it in the daily news (to quote an old tune):

DeNiro really went the white trash route with his comment at the Tony's.
Really pretty sad. While Trump is sitting down with Kim, did he need that kind of outburst?
Jeez.

Interesting comment within the first article:

"Critics of the current funding system say Jersey City residents can afford to pay more than they do via the tax levy, which will be $124 million for 2018-19 (the district receives a total of $410 million in state aid)."

That's a frightening assumption, but I guess they're looking at all of the real estate millionaires who've been created since the reval.

Hoo HaH!!

This is similar to what's being done to Amazon in Seattle although for a different reason.
Will Bezos fall for being subjected to this by bringing the Amazon operation to NJ?--I think not.
Plus Murphy is already taxing New Jersey business to grab some of the tax break from Trump's tax policies.
Perfect together ?-- no more in Jersey.

Just wondering as I'm reading these posts: is there a pedestrian plaza being planned anywhere uptown?

Society Hill was built more on landfill than a toxic refuse site, although I do recall the green, blue and purple guys in the dye joints across the way on 440.The chemical industry became really dangerous after WW2, and I think Roosevelt Stadium was built earlier. The shoreline still brings up glass bottles from the thirties and forties. We ate a lotta crabs from the river back in the fifties and I'm still around in good health in my late sixties.
The development will be a smart move for those who get in early. Waterfront property in the Metropolitan Area only gets pricier as time goes by.

Parkman, I'm with you. I have an 82 year old friend who, with his wife, bought a home in 1968, raised their kids & became a beloved neighbor to many. The house never had a major updating, it was their home with no thought to it becoming a goldmine. He doesn't want to sell ... it's his home, his neighborhood. A home is an emotional thing, sentimental, not always a money-maker as some see it. I realize that this doesn't mesh with today's reality but I just wanted to throw in my two cents.


Way to go Sara. That sounds like Jersey City heart you're speaking with; something that seems to be in short supply amongst the money changers on this forum. It's about home not bucks all the time.

As I follow this story I have to wonder: won't Bezos do his homework on New Jersey with its penchant for politicians and their sycophants having their hands out?
Does anyone wonder what happened to that hundred million Zuckerberg gave to Newark a few years back? It was like a bag of potato chips to the hordes waiting in line for their piece of the pie.
My prediction is that Bezos will bypass New Jersey entirely. Murphy has already grabbed from the companies who got a reduction in the corporate rate.

Murphy has already amped up taxes on companies playing off the reductions granted by Trump's administration.
As to Newark, all of New Jersey kicks in for that problem child since Gibson was Mayor. Judging by the Seattle backlash I wonder if Bezos will step into
the nanny state that is Jersey and in addition become a helicopter parent for its many wayward ward cities.

The reality is that the church has a lot of real estate to unload and whatever works works.
There wasn't much notice when my old parish, St Bridget's, sold the church and converted the convent to condos. It's just a sign of the times. I think the condos at St. Al's look great, and they'll get snapped up. Proximity to Lincoln Park is a big factor, and the light rail not far away is also a plus. Could be a new beginning for the area.
Wonder what the tax load will be like?

"This is the part where I point out that the bike/walk/mass transit-friendly streets of Amsterdam, where car traffic is limited and calmed by engineering, law, and culture, are far safer, crash-wise, than those of basically every other large city. (Their national average is around 3.4 deaths per 100kā€”about a third of ours.)

This despite having pot and hashish sold on every other corner, drunk tourists roaming around every night, and a self-reported 2/3 of young people regularly biking while drunk.

The most effective remedy for the dangers of intoxicated driving, it turns out, is not reducing intoxication, it's reducing ... well, you know.

K bai!"

Thank you Elsquid for another informative post that doesn't stoop to inane name calling and one upmanship.

I always thought that it was a little too much--too graphic, but maybe there should be a vote on it.
A sculpture celebrating Jersey City's diversity would be more fitting in that location.

I don't know if this is indicative of anything related to Amazon's search, but there are four of their fulfillment centers right off of exit 12 on the turnpike. That's a nice little cluster.
