Re: Paulus Hook to midtown NYC via PATH

You'd be relying on the WTC/Hoboken line and the JSQ/33rd line which seems would double your chances of delays on any given day. It can be done but you'll prob hate life. Just do Path to WTC and then subway uptown unless you're really pinching pennies.

Re: New Jersey to require schools to teach LGBT history

Y'all homophobes are a trip man.
"teach LGBT history" - what do you think this is going to consist of? It's going to be one page in a 400 page text book and a ten minute discussion about civil rights for all and the Stonewall Riots. Maybe one question on a test or quiz. None of your kids will "turn" gay if they weren't already.

Thanks for the best laugh my family has had in a while! I was wondering what your site was about and browsing I found this gem of a post shilling a tutorial service:

[quote]Is grammar important in the paper writing

Yes, The grammar is vital in light of the fact that it enhances the nature of your writing. Continuously utilize the suitable tense and make sure to utilize punctuation. Punctuation is an awesome method to make your writing clear and fluent. Continuously edit your writing twice. The first run through, look for general errors and the second time look for botches with the specific grammar point your are studying right now. Here you can check my best essay writing service to having a wonderful support for your composing works.

LOL amazing!


I'm guessing that English isn't their first language. To those poking fun, how's your Hindi or Russian grammar?

What do you mean there has been "no proactive information to alert people to this happening."

The City has used all of their social media platforms to show road closures and parking restrictions (Twitter, Facebook, and their official website).

And the road closure signs and parking restriction signs are plentiful and have been up for nearly a week already.

I'm not a JC gov't apologist here, but as a resident of Paulus Hook, I can assure you that we're well informed.


Newsflash: most people are NOT in social media AND following all the JC channels/platforms. I have seen one electronic sign, and I suspect I only noticed that it said because I am doing the race.

Let's see if we end up with the crazy traffic jams and chaos that materialize every time there are road closures in DTJC for an event.


I for one, am looking forward to the lulz. Especially wanna hear from the poster that wanted to stop one of last years races periodically so that traffic could pass.

Metropolitan Diary of last Friday afternoon....

While browsing early afternoon in Word, I heard this exchange between a customer (he did make a purchase) and the manager (? perhaps, older guy):

Customer: It would be good if you had more titles -- not just liberal and left -- more of a range.

Manager: This is what we have. Gotta a problem ; tough! (he went from zero to 60 pretty quick)

Customer: I'm just saying. There are a lot of people in this town. The selection is pretty slim.

Manager: Well you can shop elsewhere you creep!

That's verbatim....and it continued a little bit. The customer just paid for his hard cover (I think the place is often too $) and left.

We should all think about the echo chambers we occupy -- well, I do -- and this bothered me alot. Being the only bookstore in town gives Word a certain confidence I guess but I'll think more about just using NYC I think.

IMO it's better than anything downtown. Also better than Burger Joint and Corner Bistro. And at the risk of being run out of town, it's a different burger, but on par with Park Tavern.

that's not how any of that works.
Should they pause the NYC marathon at every intersection as well?

Owners are very nice.
Bought some items which were delicious .

You mean rookies, not rank and file. This is part of the smoke and mirrors of cop contracts, they can point to their poor underpaid rookies that they threw under the bus in the last contract since they weren't there to vote.


Or how a few years after they actually get that step, they get frozen again?


Okay, i'll bite, how long are they at this next "frozen" step and how much is that pay? Since you seem close to the conversation, I'm interested in seeing the pay scale cause I see many youngish looking cops driving BMWs, Benzs and late model SUVs. Many officers I know from my home town own boats and jetskis and many other toys. How is that possible if the pay is so bad?

Make no mistake, I am not anti cop and I appreciate that it can be a tough job at times...a lot of family and friends are police but the "woe is me" gets old when EVERYONE sees a detail on a job site getting paid time and a half sitting in their civilian cars or standing on a corner texting.

I don’t particularly need to know the name of the DTJC business a crime occurred outside of, but I DO need to know the general vicinity. An address doesn't immediately help me with that - I have to Google it to find the location. Turns out 135 Newark Ave is in the middle of the pedestrian plaza in DTJC’s restaurant row.

I need that information for my own personal safety, so I know where to be careful and where to avoid completely. I need to know: “The stabbing victim was found outside a restaurant located on the downtown Newark Ave pedestrian plaza”, so I can decide if, and when, I go to that vicinity.

Stabbings in the middle of supposedly safe, busy areas of DTJC concern me, as does the absence of news coverage about these crimes. What else doesn’t get reported, and why not…?


Because then they couldn't charge 2200/mo for a shitty basement studio in a "desirable" area.

You are correct on two points...
Yes, she can endorse whoever she likes.
And yes, it is up to her audience or readership to determine if the endorsement is worthwhile. I am neither and I have determined that her endorsement isn't worth a wooden nickel to me. I know that puts me in the minority because there are plenty of people that view her content. Good for her.

I went to Ms. Symes webpage to see why people here at JCList have been bedwetting about her. It turns out she sounds kind of awesome:

Ward E City Councilperson

REBECCA SYMES

The moments outside of her professional career and public service are what define Rebecca Symes. The fifth child in a family whose mother was forced to delay her own dreams of higher education for family obligations instilled in Rebecca a yearning for knowledge and an understanding of personal sacrifice.

Watching her mother successfully run for school board and later the city council in her hometown of Plymouth, Massachusetts, Rebecca saw that positive things happen when regular people – motivated by the idea that government should improve people’s lives – actively participate in our democracy.

Rebecca’s stepfather also contributed to her commitment to public and government service. His career-long work in the public sector as a city planner inspired her to think about the ways government shapes communities. His commitment to his community was reflected in his kind, engaged manner when stopped by a concerned resident at the supermarket on a Saturday afternoon. He was always willing to talk through an issue, right there on the spot. Rebecca will bring that same generosity of spirit and concern for her constituents to her work as a full-time city councilwoman.

While in college, studying English and Politics, Rebecca made her way to Washington DC, to intern for United States Senator Ted Kennedy. After college, she enrolled in law school fully intending to get a policy job on Capitol Hill after graduation. During law school, Rebecca represented domestic violence survivors as a student attorney, a defining experience for her.

Rebecca shifted her focus from policy to direct advocacy, working with vulnerable communities that are often shut out of high-minded policy discussions and denied equal access to the justice system. After law school graduation, Rebecca got a job at a nonprofit providing free legal representation to low-income Hell’s Kitchen residents and fighting to save affordable housing.
After five years in the nonprofit legal world, Rebecca joined the office of United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as the Director of Constituent Affairs, thereby combining her love of direct advocacy with her interest in government and policy. While working in the senate she managed a statewide constituent services team tasked with helping municipalities, small businesses, families, and nonprofits access federal benefits and services.

Prior to leaving her position to be a full-time councilwoman, Rebecca worked as General Counsel for a private real estate company. As the first lawyer on staff, she built and led the legal department and gained valuable insight on how private sector companies can work hand-in-hand with local governments and communities.


This seems like a conflict of interest. I'm sorry, general counsel for a RE development company that has a vested interest and growing footprint, quits her job and decides she wants to better the community? Yeah, okay.

Smells just like an investment banker going to work for the federal govt to influence monetary policy.

And that bio reads like a college application essay. I actually wrote that I had "a yearning for knowledge" in mine too. Ha.

FOR CLARITY. The vacant building/lot at 198 Wayne St was PURCHASED....not given away by the city.

The activity related to the approved ordinance is a result of the new owner attempting to develop and gain an understanding of what can be built.

The location of 198 Wayne St is currently within what is called the Dixon Crucible Study Area Redevelopment Plan. Apparently back in the day Dixon had hopes to one day purchase the 4 or 5 buildings/lots within that area of 198 Wayne.

Since Dixon did not buy those lots/buildings, an ordinance change is being made to redefine the Blocks within the "Dixon District"
The lots closely surrounding 198 Wayne, will now be outside of the Dixon District, and be considered with the "Scattered Sites District".


Now that the "Scattered Sites District" has been defined the builder/owner and attorney's of 198 Wayne may have one roadblock out of the way in terms of guidance on how he/she is permitted to build.


Copy the below link into your browser to read the details. See pages 15-20
cityofjerseycity.com/uploadedFiles/Public_Notices/Agenda/City_Council_Agenda/2017/2017_Ordinances_2nd_reading/Agenda%20Document(16).pdf


Yvonne if you know what you are doing at those meetings an address is not needed. Maybe next time you should have a map with the block numbers if you intend to give your opinion.




Thank you.
Sounds like for most intents and purposes, nothing is happening to lots other than 198.

Yvonne, care to add anything? Or maybe you just want to scream "fire" in a crowded theater again?

Would you please just SIMPLY state WHAT the city is doing, and/or planning. As others have mentioned, the city does not own those properties or the buildings on those properties.

Is Dixon proposed to be the new owner or operator?
Will those sites be razed?
Will the current tenents be forced to move?
Etc...

This information will be very helpful to us as a community. Not all of us have the free time to attend council meetings.
