I hate this idea, it's the people who have to walk numerous blocks home after a long day of work with multiple bags of groceries that suffer the most from this. Hopefully they remember the same politicians that screwed them over with this idiotic ban the next election.


You act like the sky is falling. It's not very difficult to buy a reusable bag and keep it with you. Here, I found a small, affordable one for you already --> baggu.com/collections/reusable-bags

Re: Is Downtown JC next? Out-Of-Town Drivers Banned From Using Leonia As Shortcut

Piggy backing off this post, people racing to the Holland Tunnel are putting pedestrian at risk, especially on the North-South running streets in the downtown area, like Erie (as mentioned) and Jersey Ave. Stand outside of Key Foods or Dames Coffee shop on the weekend and you'll witness MANY close calls--specifically at the intersection of Jersey and 3rd--as drivers race down the street to shave a few minutes off their drive. I'm surprised there is not an effort to get a stop sign at that specific intersection.

businesses over houses?! that's blasphemy to my suburban-cul-de-sac-upbringing ears!

the last few years I've left a bowl out on my stoop on the 31st. While there are some kids that walk the neighborhood, it seams like the majority of kids I see trick or treating on Halloween seem to hit the businesses on Newark more than the houses. maybe it's a JC thing?

Trick R Treating in Hamilton Park area?

What's the scoop with Trick R Treaters in the Hamilton Park area? I'd love to sit out on my stoop with candy, but do most families go out this weekend--presumably Saturday evening--or do they wait to go out until Tuesday the 31st?

seems likely the sirens we're all hearing are due/responding to this outage?

I always thought "sick passenger" was code for "police presence", so as not to make people panic

No Parking on Jersey Ave between 3rd and 6th
#7
Newbie
Newbie


A ton of No Parking signs went up yesterday on both sides of Jersey Ave between 3rd and 6th. Anyone know what this is about? Seems like an excessive amount of lot of no parking--3 blocks on both sides--for just a simple construction pick up. Is there planned road work?

I can't believe that this thread is still going, and how far it's devolved. "Pleasing everybody is not what public art is supposed to do" is pretty much all that needs to be said imo.

while I think this mural is really wonderful, I have to say that it's become quite an impediment every single morning when I ride my bike on Newark to the PATH and it's blocked off. I'm forced to ride on the sidewalk, or walk my bike in the plaza. Often it's still blocked off when I come home at night. I realize these are small complaints, but given that we just had a post about people being upset that cyclists are biking on the sidewalk; well, this is one of the reasons.

I agree with another user on here; when are they going to stop repainting it? It seems like it's literally every morning these past two or three weeks that it's been blocked off.

Donating clothes in VVP/Hamilton Park
#10
Newbie
Newbie


Spring cleaning means getting rid of lots of clothes and other good you don't wear or need anymore. I'm wondering if there is a church or a program in the VVP/Hamilton Park area that accepts donated clothes? I'd rather donate to a local church that puts the goods directly in the hands of those in need, instead of Goodwill/SA.

JC Impound lot
#11
Newbie

My car got tower this morning and I've been trying speak to someone at the impound lot at 100 Phillips Street to make sure it's actually there before I trek all the way over. I've been calling the number they have listed (201) 547-5415 but have met with a busy signal every time for the last 3 hours.

Has anyone ever gotten someone on the phone or are they just leaving their phone off the hook so nobody can call? I also tried the MOTOR VEHICLE RECOVERY line at (201) 333-6336 to no avail.

Re: Has the morning street sweeper schedule changed?
#12
Newbie

I think it goes without saying that yes, the street sweeper could come at any point within the posted times. However, OP was saying for years it had been at a consistent time, and I'd be willing to bet they are not the only one in the nearby neighborhoods to have become accustomed to a schedule, only to be confused as to why it's been wonky these past few weeks.

yup having the same issue on 5th, likely right near you. Been pretty consistent at coming on Jersey right around 9:30am, but yes the past week has been very off. Glad I'm not the only one feeling a bit frustrated by this, but what can you do.

I will say the one day I didn't have time to move my car was the day they never showed up at all, so I was pretty happy to come home and not find a ticket on my car :)

Are the roads ever going to be repaved or are we just stuck with PSEG's shotty work? I used to have a wonderful bike route down Jersey Ave towards LSP, but the ride back has been completely ruined and given me more than a few flat tires because of their repair work, especially around VVP.

Re: Using your car alarm to find your car at 5:40am?

yeah I heard this this morning and was quite annoyed as well.. but what can you do except confront the person directly? Wonder if it's the same person who last week decided to park their car on 5th and Erie at 5am and honked their horn for 10 minutes repeatedly in a considered and jolly fashion.

Re: Unable to contact JCParking Authority

I would but their open hours conflict with my work schedule.

I did *finally* get someone on the phone, and they were helpful, albeit a bit terse. I guess they don't like people trying to take care of these things a week in advance, and would prefer I just do it at the last possible minute. Who would have thought ¯\_(?)_/¯

Unable to contact JCParking Authority
#17
Newbie
Newbie


I've been trying to obtain no-parking signs for moving from the JCparking Authority since last week. Nobody has returned my emails or phone calls, and as of yesterday afternoon, I'm getting a 'call cannot be completed as dialed' and 'not in service' prompts, even though I am calling the exact number listed on their website, which was working up until yesterday.

Anybody else having issues contacting them? Or advice to get through? Really nervous about getting my request in, as PSEG is still doing a ton of work in the neighborhood and I fear the spots in front of the buildings I'm moving to and from will be taken. (I'm moving next Friday)

Re: Dixon Leasing bought my building, raised rent; what rights do I have?
#18
Newbie
Newbie


I'm not even sure they want to rent out the apartment if I were to leave, since the two below me have been empty since they bought the building in April. I'm guessing they just want me out to renovate it and increase the rent even higher than 2k--as has happened to several other brownstones on my block--or even just sell the building itself.

I also should have mentioned in my original post that I received this letter of an increase yesterday, and they are stating they need a decision by June 30. Not sure if that makes a difference, the fact that they are only giving me 2 weeks.

Dixon Leasing bought my building, raised rent; what rights do I have?
#19

Dixon Leasing bought the brownstone I've been renting near VVP, and my lease has now expired. They've offered me a new lease but with a 50% increase on my current rent. The building has 3 apartments but I am the only renter. There have been no changes or improvements made to the building that would warrant such an increase. I'm wondering what are my rights in this situation? I was ready to pay a 10-15% increase, but 50% (around 700$) is just too much.

Been reading here, http://archive.lsnjlaw.org/english/pl ... nantsrights/chapterseven/ .. but not sure if I would fall under "Unconscionable rent increases" or if Dixon is basing this off of similar 1 bedrooms in the area.

Any insight would be helpful.

new in town--which neighborhood safe for single female?
#20
Newbie
Newbie


hello! i'm just got a job in jersey city off the journal sq. stop, and i'm beginning to look at apartments in jersey city. i'm a single female in her late 20's, and i'm looking for a neighborhood that is above all safe (my definition would be feeling safe if i'm walking to my car that is parked a few blocks away, or taking a few minutes to lock my bike up after a late night at work) and also walkable to bars/restaurants.

the research i've been doing leads me to think east of 78, but because ideally i'm looking for a one bedroom for less than 1800$, west of the waterfront. seems to me like there are lots of little pockets even in this defined area, which is why i wanted to pose the question on JClist. i'm open to areas closer to the journal sq. stop, or lincoln park area, but don't really know anything about those places.

also wondering what are the best places to find apartments in the city? i'm currently perusing craigslist, zillow, and trulia.

any recommendations are appreciated! thanks everyone.
