You are absolutely correct, most of Journal Square was rental until the city make radical changes to the rent control laws. Classic example is St. John Apartments.

I was at a meeting where a city employee stated they were getting calls from residents about Airbnb guests. They accuse the guests of getting high from pot and acting loud. But isn't that what Fulop wants for JC? Fulop is pushing recreational marijuana. I see both sides but the real issue is - Fulop pushed this Airbnb and now the homeowners who made these investments are being hurt.

The Mana does not have historic JC artifacts. In 1960, I was a child, reading about JC having a 300th birthday. I lived in Hoboken, both the Jersey Journal and the Hudson Dispatch ran stories on JC history. There was a building that had artifacts on Jersey City near the old Dutch cemetery. Those artifacts are nowhere to be found. The only thing that is left is the 16th century Dutch Bible. A lot of times are missing.

I do not know why potty training is a big deal. Wait until your child can go the whole night without accidents Make sure they do not have liquid before bed time. It is easier to do this during the summer when they have less clothes. I trained one child in four days during the summer and another in two weeks during the winter. Don't stress over this and your child will not stress over the training.

I was not going to edit the Ward C meeting since I did Ward B, but since there has been so much discussion, I believe the community should see it. It is edited for 28 minutes.

A number of people are confused by the flyers on the Airbnb. The wording on the ballot is confusing. A no vote is what the signatures were about, it is a removal of the city council ordinance. A yes vote, is to keep the city council ordinance. It is a shame the wording is confusing to voters. I am not an Airbnb renter and have no dog in the fight but I do not like the confusion for voters.

I have been to C and D meetings on this subject and bikers pack the meetings. They say they need the road diet to keep safe, but it is a rare site to see any biker use a helmet. Their safety is pushed on others instead of being responsible for themselves. My friend, Bob Miller passed away recently. He had health problems for a long time. During the summer months he sent me copies of emails that he sent the mayor. Apparently, Bob Miller had to wait twice for ambulances. One time was 20 minutes and the other time was 30 minutes. Bob was a frequent visitor to city hall. His recent death had nothing to do with a delay ambulance call but still, there is an impact when traffic does not move.

The medical center is downtown and doctors have their offices there. Besides there are places downtown like Holy Rosary and St. Anthony that have decent parking. I like to go to those churches.

For two years, Van Vorst Park and others had meetings with the city over Grand St and it is still going on. The people on Bergen Avenue complained this is pushed on them and they found out a couple of days before the work started. Council-President Lavarro also attended the meeting at Hudson Catholic and said the people there (Bergen Avenue) was disrespected by the mayor, he would not pull this downtown.

I did not write the story in Jersey Digs, nicky, but facts do not bother you, because you are full of misplaced rage. Neither did I write the Jersey Journal story on the subject. Or tell the 100 plus residents to show up to complain about bike lanes and the road diet at Hudson Catholic. There are people out there who can help you with your problem. Seek them out.

Not surprisingly, the cities at the top of the list are drive-thru obsessed sprawlburbs. Fortunately JC is not that kind of a city. We have good public transit (though of course it has its problems) and we’re a very walkable city. I can live here comfortably without a car, but that wouldn’t be possible in places like Raleigh NC a"nd most of the top half of that list.


"We have good public transit..." I guess you did not attend the meeting yesterday in Ward C held in Hudson Catholic High school. People complained that it took 40 minutes to drive a short distance due to the road diet and St. Aedan's Church could not get the hearse near the church due to the city's new configuration of Bergen Avenue. Parents cannot pick up their children from school and senior citizens came screaming about being vulnerable crossing the street since the change of the road. Finally merchants complained no one is shopping due to the road congestion brought on by the road diet.

With the construction and the road diet for bikes, you cannot move.

I got an email from a friend last month who had to use the ambulance service twice, he blamed the delay on all of this new construction on the streets. He recently passed away. I don't think the ambulance was part of the reason for his passing but how do an ambulance arrive in a timely manner if the streets are block?

When I see parents take their babies/children from the back seat of the car and they are exiting onto the bike lane, I see future problems. Several months ago, my husband pulled me from a potential accident when a biker made an illegal turn and nearly knocked me over. Most likely I would have hit the sidewalk, I was lucky that day. The same thing could happened with parents and children. It was safer when the parents exit on the sidewalk with their children instead of a bike lane.

Just wait until the third year when the business tax max out at $80 million and the rest will be pass on to local property owners, minus tax abated and rent control buildings. This is a seven year phase-in period. The schools are actually short $200 million.

When Cotter spoke in 2015 it was Fulop speaking. Nothing has changed. Traditional zoning has been tossed for a new way of getting it done. Nothing need be codified if its stamped with the city seal. Unless challenged in a court it stands ala the Kushner case where Fulop reneged on an abatement because his very good friend Jared is Trumps son-in-law. It was a totally manufactured event for the public eye. "Would'nt look good to my constituents if I was nice to Trumps family" Of course he said just a few years ago, lost on everybody, that the "Trump brand is a good thing for any American city."

BL: The new era of development standards was announced to the world at the CTBUH conference ,2015, in NYC. Planning Director Cotter proclaimed " taller buildings, no height limit"; the traditional zoning code from the 1920's has been left behind." JC was a platinum sponsor of the event, gave tours to dozens of developers. Fulop was there in NYC to speak...later denied knowing anything about it...Zoning & Planning Boards uninvited etc., etc. & so forth... So I know from where I speak !

BL: Like Duuu-uuuhh!! Talking Light Rail don't pull no gravy. Nonsense...Every piece of property in JC or Bayonne or any city
nearby has escalated in value several times over. The Board of Ed building at Claremont & West Side is in the midst of SOHO, Bayfront, NJCU with H-U-G-E parking lots with the potential of "by right" ability to create 100 story towers. There's no zoning left in Jersey City only redevelopment plans that are tailored to the individual developer. The gravy train is roaring through!
