Go under ?

Like the failure LSC is, even with their $31.75 admission fees lining the pockets of this Williamsburg DOUCHEBAG who took the liberty to write himself a $400k year salary:


Once this property gets into the hands of a contributor, ugh mean developer buddy of Fulops' - kiss that land goodbye.

Wonder how much hotels room there are gonna rent for ?


This is a total fking Land Grab.

What entity comes to own the land under the city plan?

Land that will run a 'for profit' hotel and some residential housing
as proposed.

Smart thing to do would create a land lease to the developers or
quasi corporation and Jersey City retains ownership.

The meeting tonight should be interesting.

The city told me it would be a traditional public school.

Hi,

Does anyone know a place to rent a car? It's for my folks, their car is out of commission at the last minute and they have to get down to Ocean County.

I called Enterprise but they all closed their offices at 1. Any ideas?

Uber and Lyft would cost way too much. And Zip car is out of the question since it would cost just a bit less than UBER and LYFT.

Any ideas appreciated it.

Some very succinct points here and the process seems like a total land grab for some political cronies.

I have so many concerns about this transaction. Many concerns that every property taxpayer and voter in JC should have FULL answers to before this transfer is approved.

Why wouldn't the council have the real estate appraised before the closing? Who ever heard of closing on real estate before having it appraised. As a homeowner didn't you have the property you were purchasing appraised before you purchased it?

Why is the Council President Lavarro voting on this transfer when he is also the Chair of JCRA. There must be a conflict of interest here. It may not be unlawful, but is certainly is unethical. As NJRA chair he has information about this transaction that no one else on the council has, yet he is allowed to vote on this transaction. Lavarro should abstain from voting, that is the ethical thing to do.
Also Daniel Rivera who also sits on the JCRA board. This the only ethical thing to do.

Why is the council and mayor promoting this 50/50 and 80/20 revenue share? They forgot to tell the public THERE WILL BE NO REVENUE SHARE. You ask why, this is why. Because the full agreement reads, that revenue will be shared when it exceeds expenses. Also, the revenue share will NOT include any revenue received from donations from individuals or corporate donations. What this means is that SciTech could have $100,000 in expenses, $100,000 in revenue NOT including the revenue of $100,000 in donations and JC will never see a penny of shared revenue. But SciTech will be seating on $100,000 in revenue obtained from donations. Keep in mind a hugh part of income in this type of non-profit could come from donations.
The contract wording MUST BE CHANGED to read: JC will have first right to % compensation before ALL OTHER expenses.

Did the council tell you there is a an article in the contract that allows SciTech to apply for ABATEMENTS? Now, why would a NON-PROFIT need to apply for an abatement? Why, because the plan is to lease hugh amounts of space to developers and they will want ABATEMENTS!

Who will be donating the $78 million needed as seed money? Who are these people/corporations and what relationship do they have with JC? Who are their board members and what is their relationship with JC? Have any of them made donations to the Fulop SUPERPAC?

The council is giving 16-17 acres of land to JCRA which will ultimately be sold to SciTech LLC for $10. If you are selling to SciTech for $10 than please explain the arrangement to pay the city a portion of revenue until value of land is repaid. Although, I have already explained JC will probably never receive all payment for the full value of this land.
It has been projected that this land could be worth somewhere BETWEEN $100-150 million. Is that why the council, mayor and JCRA wants to wait UNTIL CLOSING to appraise this land value. At which point nothing can be done to secure a compensation for this true value.

ALSO, there should be A PUBLIC MEETING to discuss and answer questions about this transaction. AT this time WE ARE LEAVING THE DECISION OF FIVE (5) people who have a pattern of voting in favor of WHATEVER THE MAYOR WANTS to decide the fate of OUR LAND.

THIS land value could provide an offset to the property tax impact after the REVAL. HOMEOWNER ALL OVER THIS CITY SHOUDL BE OUT QUESTIONING THIS TRANSACTION.

DID YOU KNOW that the Council has NO CONTROL over JCRA. Once this land is TRANSFERRED TO JCRA, we the citizens of JC will be POWERLESS in securing our rights to the land or its TRUE VALUE.


There are so many holes in the current contract, which will leave us the residents of JC with NOTHING.

Please call the City Clerks office and add your name to the speakers list 201-547-2233.
The 2nd and FINAL READING IS CURRENTLY SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 @ 6PM.
PLEASE COME OUT you OWE IT TO YOURSELF AND YOUR NEIGHBORS.

If we let this happen we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Thank you.

It was much better before they closed it off, seems like almost a 3rd of the storefronts are empty on that street now.

The area was mixed use for ages with ppl living above the storefronts.

Anyone else remember when it was a servicable road that actually allowed traffic to pass down past the PATH entrance.

Who considers Newark Ave residential? Even before the Pedestrian Plaza days, it was still commercial.


I was thinking the same thing... I can't imagine anyone claiming Newark Avenue is a residential area with a straight face. As long as I have lived in JC (granted, only 11 years) I have always thought of Newark Ave as a commercial street with some residential sprinkled on it, with some more in its periphery.

Besides, the argument about what has led to a rise in property values is not a binary matter: it is not one thing or the other. I think the growth in quality restaurants and bars is a definite booster of property values, just as the gentrification of the area has been such a booster. Trying to shut down Restaurant Row is not the answer (that whole thing about throwing the baby out with the bath water) but concerned citizens should work with the city to try and come up with a workable solution. Surely there is a compromise that can be reached.[/quote]

Sure hope they step their game coz the food look barfaliciois.


But considering the location they will probably thrive as have a small wine and beer section happening and that will prolly float the lease.

Thank you.



Is the exterior of the building outside your windows brick ?

Then a sound investment would be soundproof windows which are expensive but worth the investment if it is your own place.

Not worthwhile if you're in a framed wood house as the sound always make its way inside.

Separately but related - The PATH has been a disaster on weekend mornings lately, especially going to 33rd. Has anyone else noticed this? Last w/e, I eventually took the train to WTC and subway up to midtown since it didn't appear that any trains were going to 33rd at all after waiting close to 30 minutes.



It is worse than a disaster taking PATH to NYC these days.

What a pathetic joke of a service while totally monolpolizing transport to NYC - the trains don't run and crawl when they do.


There should be large affordable ferry services along the waterfront like the Hong Kong Star Ferry or even the Staten Island Ferry - no reason apart from greed this does not exist.

We have continued to lead the state in construction starts, with nearly 10,000 units currently


under construction, and another 17,000 units approved. For the first time we can say that development is not exclusive to one neighborhood. Whether you live on the West Side or in the Heights - you have seen the outcome of the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of investment that we have brought in to our city.


Above all, it is important to us that this progress is inclusive, and we have worked hard to ensure that there are opportunities for all residents, in all wards. We have built more affordable housing during the past three years than any prior administration in the city's history.


This year, we will continue to build on this progress, with an upcoming Ocean Avenue project in partnership with the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency that will add 20 veteran-priority units, with units reserved specifically for homeless veterans.

Fulop's 2017 state of the city speech (Ward F)

By The Jersey Journal

This is Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop's first state of the city address of 2017, as prepared for delivery.

Good evening, and welcome to our fourth State of the City together.

I want to thank the public officials from the state and the county who have joined us tonight; members of the clergy; members of the court; the Jersey City Council who have been partners in everything we do; fellow members of my administration; and, most importantly, the residents of this great city.

In July of 2013, I stood in front of City Hall and took the oath of office as the 49th mayor of Jersey City. It was one of the proudest moments of my life, and something I remain thankful for each and every day. As your new mayor, I promised I would work to make you proud, and that is what we have tried to do as an administration for the past three and a half years.
