I'm sick of tax abatements myself, but I wonder what you think Donald Trump would do about this? On the business side, Trump would be eating up abatements like candy. On the government side, Trump would be doling them out like candy. If you doubt me, just look at the Carrier deal. He gave millions of dollars to a company that's moving a bunch of jobs to Mexico. Trump is exactly the problem that you're complaining about.

At least this abatement includes a new public school, so we're getting something out of it.


hero69 is right. This is why people voted for Trump: they're a bunch of idiots that don't know how the world works.

There always seem to be a fine line between places of worship and community center. My solution you ask? Amend the zoning code so they're treated exactly the same. A small community center should be allowed anywhere a church is allowed and vice versa.

Don't shut it down. That's just salty.


Why is there a line at all? A nonprofit gathering place is just that, whether they worship Ganesh or basketball is immaterial.

These folks don't drive on the Sabbath, so they need a place in their neighborhood. Not accommodating that in some sensitive way will bring a shitstorm, there's storefront churches all over this town.


Not driving is a choice (dictated by their religion) just like it is also a choice where you reside. If having a place of worship close by is important, then it is incumbent upon each individual, or group of individuals, to make sure that where they are choosing to live can accommodate their needs, within the law. If the article is correct, the current zoning laws do not allow for a houses of worship on MLK. So, if the synagogue violates the law, why should it be allowed to continue operating as such? That's a slippery slope... what if someone opened a bar or club in a residential area? Should they be allowed to remain open because they already built it?


It's called applying for a variance, genius. Happens all the time.

Wow, is it possible that Trump is showing signs of dementia? His father had Alzheimer's. I wonder if that's why he has to have family members attending every meeting with him. This is not good.

Most of these incidents are fake, committed by ardent "progressives" seeking to further their anti-Trump agenda.

It's no coincidence that these incidents nearly all occur in heavily "progressive" urban cities, where the amount of Hillary voters heavily outnumbers Trump voters.

And when there is photo or video evidence of the perpetrators, they are black or otherwise obviously people who knew what they were doing. Here is a representative example:

Here I have to disagree. When the house is on fire you don't obsess about lead paint in the walls. Focusing on enforcement benefits ALL the parties using JC streets, not just cyclists. We need a Traffic Division at Public Safety the way NYC has. This would pay for itself and benefit EVERYONE on the streets rather than the protected bikeway which would cost a lot, and benefit the cyclists while hindering the motorists.


I think we should hinder the motorists. They have free reign on Grand Street. We gave them quite a chance and they blew it. Road diets are shown to work without creating insane traffic jams (after a period of adjustment, at least). If there is reduced throughput people making unnecessary trips or using Grand as a shortcut to the tunnel will choose a different way to go.

I lived on Grand Street for six years and it was a constant nightmare. I'm sure the current owner of my condo would appreciate the increased value of their property when their street is no longer a highway.

Just to reiterate, the guys doing the actual work at Joe's over the last few years would probably appreciate your continued business since they're not exactly in a such a great location anymore. They're at the end of West 5th in a small industrial lot. Here's a map if it helps:

False dichotomy. We can be safe and protect the human rights of undocumented people at the same time. The thought of rounding people up is very uncomfortable when we have white supremacists advising the President Elect.

Joe basically retired off the sale of the building. The guys who work there took over and moved to Bayonne by the old A&P, close to the 8th street light rail. I will continue using them!

Zactly right! Not just that, but the "we took their environment" argument falls flat when we're talking about dense urban development, which arguably does the best job of habitat preservation by concentrating people in cities and leaving real wild places alone. There's simply too many of them because, like deer, they love the environments we create: lots of food and no predators.


There are predators of geese, like coyotes, foxes, and some of the larger birds of prey. Geese used to be pretty rare around here until we insisted that every unpaved space in the country be covered in short cut grass. It is our fault that geese are everywhere, so please forgive some people for thinking they shouldn't die uncomfortable deaths as a result.
