If you are buying an older home that has not been touched in 50 or more years, you must assume everything must be updated especially the plumbing and electric. You must also consider that parts of JC are considered flood zones, so contact city hall for that information. Houses not in flood zones, have a longer life.

I proudly did because my students actually scored very high in the math portions of state exams. I actually wish NYS and the Archdiocese of NYC would release my students' scores.

Unfortunately, you did not go far enough with Reagan statement on immigration. What he signed was allowing anyone who came here before 1984, amnesty. He signed this in 1986. So that means anyone who arrived here illegally after 1984, is in violation of Reagan's immigration law. But actually, it you speak to people who know Reagan personally, he actually regretted signing this law. Google this, if you do not believe me.

People have to fix the problems in their own country, escaping solves nothing. We allowed Cubans to escape and Cuba is still a horrible country. When Poland was going through its political problems in the 1980s, President Reagan closed the US borders. They could not escape and the Polish people had no choice but to stand up to the former Soviet Union. I is now a free country. But the bottom line - Americans are living on the streets while much of the affordable housing are filled up with foreign nationals, I learned this when I did voter registration in the 1990s and found foreign nationals from various countries living in tax abated buildings. This is probably why the Dems fought to keep the question of citizenship off the census. They want to keep the public stupid.

You should be ashamed of making that comparison.


How do I know who is legit and who is just gaming the system? The bottom line, people go to council meetings all the time and complain they cannot find housing, basically, government is allowing citizens to compete for housing against immigrants. And government is placing liens on homes to pay for more services. 8,000 liens were listed by this municipal government in early December. Plus if you do not pay for IRS taxes, you go to prison. There is a cost to immigration. According to One America News, $265 billion is what this country has spend on illegal immigration, alone.

But in the meanwhile, seven Democrat governors of Kansas, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington have approved more refugee resettlement in their local communities. An additional three GOP governors, Doug Ducey of Arizona, Doug Burgum of North Dakota, and Gary Herbert of Utah have approved refugee resettlement in their states as well. So how is that different?

This has nothing to do with the Boomer generation. I read budgets. In the 1970s, when the boomers were young, the city council budget was $90 million and it took 300 years to get to that point, in the by the early 2000s, it jumped to $321 million. Now less than 20 years later, it is over $600 million. It has to do with bonding and spending. And that is just city government.

Tell that to the people who are in lien, the Jersey Journal has close to 40 pages with columns on two sides on each page. While Secaucus had 11 properties, which if similar to JC population would be 55 names. Blame the people for being poor because the cost of government is above their ability to pay, Pebble. The cost of government that is close to one billion when you add up the schools, county and municipals. That figure is in the budget, Peddle. Do some budget reading for a change.

If you want to make money, Pebble, then go into the private sector. Making money in the public sector, puts a large burden on taxpayers. Just buy yesterday Jersey Journal. There are pages after pages of people in lien who cannot afford government including paying the salaries of public school teachers. But you are right about the cost of college, it was cheaper in the past. It only went up when the federal government started subsidizing colleges. Young people are being ripped off but that is not the problem of struggling taxpayers who only want to live in their homes.

I saw Shea on tv who said there are phony groups collecting money for the victims, he said to contact the city if you want to donate. I also feel sorry for the students in Sacred Heart School who have bullets in their building and probably in the classrooms. Also mention was either a daycare or school next to the Kosher store. The city should reach out to those kids.

The last data I saw, the average income for families in JC was $55,000, perhaps it is slightly higher now. So, this is the reason why more people are in tax lien. The idea not to blame tax abated properties, is to ignore the truth, it is a sweetheart deal at the expense of everyone else especially those in tax lien. It is totally unfair to have abated properties to use the public schools including charter schools and not pay a cent.

My salary was private, it did not come from the public and did not affect anyone's taxes and it was not $99K. I just saw my former neighbor's house listed in today's paper under tax lien. Reval brought up his taxes and now he is in a hole for $30,000. $7,500 goes to the public school from his $30,000. But in the meanwhile, some people live in tax abated buildings and use the public schools and have no concern about losing their homes. The issue is the affordability of living in JC and paying taxes that steals people homes. The lien list has 37 pages of people in tax lien. Secaucus is 20 percent of JC population, had eleven names in lien which would be 55 people if the same size as JC. It is about the affordability of living in this city. So, nicky, spend $1.50 on the Jersey Journal and see the results of giving some teachers $99K plus. Public education is not free, it cost people money and homes.

So you have no problem with homeowners losing their homes in tax liens? At least those homeowners who do not have tax abatements and are paying school taxes for those in tax abatement buildings that use the schools but do not pay.

The original ordinance was Mayor Fulop's idea, not Councilman Boggiano. I remember the articles in papers outside JC where he said JC is ready for Airbnb. At the point, Airbnb was getting some push back from New York City's residents.

In the early 1990s, I was asked to do voter registration, so I targeted the new housing that was going up downtown. That is when I got my education, subsidized housing in Jersey City during that time period and probably now had non-American citizens. They were from different countries: Poland, Russia, and various Latin American countries. These housing units were build with tax dollars and received tax abatements. So when I hear there is not enough housing, yes, that is correct. American citizens must compete for housing against legal and now illegal immigrants.

Get over yourself, nicky, regardless of the outcome, you still approve of the city lying to get land. You still approve of the ordinance saying it will be a rail spur and not a park. During the ordinance, city officials admitted there will be no Green Acres funding because the state does not grant money to rail spurs.

I suggest people look at old maps of JC land where the railroad went. It was all over downtown. Newport and other areas was rail land, no one said anything on how that property was transferred. 6th Street became an issue when people realize affordable housing was going there. Typical hypocrisy.

So I guess you root for the thief and all the bad guys when you go the movies, nicky, it doesn't bother you when government is underhanded. But is the background of the Embankment, former mayor Schundler wanted that property to go to a developer to create affordable housing. I am not a fan of affordable housing because it does not pay full taxes, which is a separate issue of being against low income people. Hoboken does affordable well, by requiring many new building to have a portion affordable while the building pays full taxes. The neighborhood group got together to save the Embankment once they realize these plans. That tidbit of facts was lost.

Instead of taking someone's property, the city could have traded property. Fulop gave 16 acres in Liberty State Park and the city also owns acres in Bayfront. I personally finds it appalling that people do think this is OK. Communist countries do this, not a democratic country.

According to the city ordinance, the 6th Street Embankment was voted on as a rail spur, not a park. There is no "green acres" money or state funding for a rail spur. This also means the city lied to get someone's property so no property owner is actually safe; if you lie to grab someone property, the city can lie again to grab your property.

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.
