Bursting at the seams last night--parties and a great time with wonderful food.
Not to mention the free parking lot. We had a family group of twelve and were treated and feted in a caring family style.

Mayor Fulop: Distribution convictions should be expunged if weed is legalized

JERSEY CITY -

A strong supporter of legalizing marijuana in the state is not satisfied with the current bill to do so in the state Legislature.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop is in full support of the legalization of marijuana, but only if the state will also eliminate prior distribution convictions.

http://newjersey.news12.com/story/396 ... nged-if-weed-is-legalized



I can't go with that for the most part as to it's holding up the legalization process. Expungement has many facets and it can be dealt with as a separate issue while the legalization process moves along.

In the Jersey City that I grew up in bookies were the order of the day if you wanted to play a number. When the lottery was initiated did all of the bookies who were arrested have the records cleaned up?--no.

Go back further to prohibition and people who broke that law and were arrested. Were their records cleaned up?

To me it makes no difference whether a record for possession is erased, but let's get it out of the way and move along.

How is it that the number of views on a forum topic can be so enormous while comments are so minute in number?

Can Saint Anthony's and some of the Prep property be far behind?

I fear that the Church is going into the real estate business big time ala Two Guys/Vornado years ago. and Sears today.

In the suburbs these real estate deals can be easily absorbed, but in the urban areas like JC it'll only add to increased density, congestion and other issues.

See if you can get your library to get this book for you:

https://www.amazon.com/Berenice-Abbott ... erenice+changing+new+york

It may be available for viewing online in some capacity as well.

Take a look at some of the neighborhoods that existed before Manhattan became the metropolis that it is now. Jersey City is well into that transformation now.

Consider why the people flooding into JC can't live in NYC--it's beyond their means.

It's a matter of time before the same situation occurs in your city.

Is your quality of live improving daily because of the new restaurants ?--really?

Greed has no limits and as will be seen recognizes no boundaries.

The Jersey Journal ran the tax lien for 2018. It was 33 pages. It is the first advertisement. However, over 6,700 people more than one in ten cannot afford their taxes or water. When the city talks about affordable housing, they ignore that group and worry about future residents who will come here from the feds list for low income housing.


In time banks will prevail, eminent domain and tax sales will result in the demolition of entire neighborhoods, and the unique character of what Jersey City once was will be replaced. High rises, cold and without character will be inhabited by a new generation who have no concept of neighborhoods, nor want them. Much of Manhattan looked like JC once, and look at it now. It'll happen in JC too in time.

There appears to be a pretty cavalier attitude about the people who've lived in their homes for many decades who are now in a terrible state because of the huge tax burden which some are now facing. Try to understand what it would mean to people who are in their seventies and eighties being told: " aww, just move out or take a reverse mortgage".

It's a very emotional and terrifying prospect to have to change your whole life abruptly. Try to exhibit a little empathy. It may happen to you, your parents or a relative. Some of you don't realize what's coming down the line in Jersey City; no mercy will be shown to anyone. It will get uglier.

What would bring more grace to the streets of JC than the sight of beautiful horses?
Think of the joy it would bring to children when they see them.
It's a step back in the right direction.

Many years ago I heard of the 'wheel of merchandising": new businesses come on at the bottom and as the old ones get over the top they fall off.

Wouldn't it be grand if those store locations were connected in a park area?

We need another Roosevelt Stadium type park in the area rather than enterprises that congest and pollute.

I can't say I disagree. I certainly haven't posted here a ton, but have lurked/read for years. It's become almost exclusively Yvonne/anti-Yvonne, right wing shills and those that defend them, and reposting of NJ.com stories. I don't love nextdoor either, but there's more actual information there, as well as JCupfront and Jersey City Eats - without the mean spiritid-ness and name-calling. Don't get me wrong, I love snark, but it hasn't even been fun snark lately. I'm not leaving, but this certainly isn't anywhere near as informative and community oriented as it used to be.


Very nicely said and probably expressive of what most readers and posters feel when visiting this site. You can express your concerns to the webmaster (as I have done in the past) and he will step up and speak to it, but the fault lies with the very few antagonistic know it alls who express themselves in sometimes small, mean posts.
They know who they are and so do the people who just want to engage in insightful discussion with others.

I would hazard a guess that outside the forum they're not nice people to begin with.

Does anyone remember that old saying: if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything?

Silence in response to a bigot or name caller is the most effective of tools to stop them in their tracks.

I do hope that the forum continues and grows, but without the hateful spew from the few.

Hope to see you all on a kinder more informed site. See ya.


Even with the vitriol, sniping and backbiting which appears from certain posters I still find postings of interest and displays of knowledge about goings on.

However, I must confess that I just can't figure out how people have the time to contribute their voices thousands and thousands of times. There's a poster here with over nine thousand contributions.

Do the math--it's incredible.

I think that the more JC becomes an extension of NYC, it's inevitable that foot patrols will be back just like in NYC.
I remember the old horse patrols as a kid--pretty cool. We used to go down to the stable over on Johnson Avenue near the SPCA and pet the horses when they were out of their stalls.

We had a wonderful meal last night at the restaurant--our favorite home style Italian place to eat.
Sadly, the place was practically empty. I hope that this was due to the horrific traffic on Grand Street due to construction or street work I guess. Hopefully, that's all it was because the restaurant is an old style gem.

Re: Video:beach replenishment in Seaside Park this summer

In essence, abuse of the beachgoers and vacationers by uncaring workers circumventing safety concerns
while moving equipment for beach replenishment a few blocks down.

The police were called down, but didn't intervene. Until we called OSHA and the corporate people of the contracters we were daily at the mercy of what you see in the video and worse.

Initially all of this movement took place at night, but then the workers decided to short cut the process--public be damned.

Corporate people were there in record time with the threat of the newspapers and OSHA facing them and things turned around quickly.

The thread on NextDoor about this subject is so demoralizing... simply put, a bunch of old timers lamenting the "good old days" of surface street lots, and being able to drive somewhere and park right in front. Our city will never progress or evolve into a world class city as long as we have so many people holding on to antiquated ideas.


Antiquated ideas or memories of better times?
