I don't expect this will have a big impact on JC, though it is plausible that some people who will be priced out of LIC/Queens could move to affordable parts of JC.


Depending on where exactly in LIC they go, the WTC PATH has a direct connection to the E and R lines, which go right to the Queensboro Plaza area. I think the region as a whole will benefit, including Downtown JC, as not every one of those 25k employees is going to want to live in Queens.

Poor bigot Yvonne, it must suck to live in a society that's rapidly leaving people like her behind: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/07/us/ ... ion-winners-midterms.html

Stuck with two closeted children and without the grandchildren she so desperately wants in a society that's rapidly accepting of GLBT, the old hag has nothing better to do than lash out on forums and at city council meetings where she's laughed at behind her back.

I think if she held such vile views and had the same thought process as Yvonne, that it would have come out much earlier and sunk her candidacy. She's also an immigrant herself, I believe.

I believe another developer is proposing a smaller project on the site (still around 5 stories and 40 units).


What bs. Despite losing numerous times, the VVPA wins in the end anyway. There needs to be accountability for these illegitimate NAs.

I was told by the Jersey City Librarian that the 1938 photos are being stored somewhere by the tax office (post-Sandy) currently and nobody is sure of their whereabouts. Jersey City apparently received a grant to have those old photos digitized but someone in the mayor's office apparently didn't want to pay the balance to have it done, so they're in limbo.

It is not undocumented at all, in fact there is a dossier stared by former Pope Benedict on the homosexuality in the Church, when he received the report, he felt he was too old to correct the problem. The reason he resigned. Newspapers in Italy has been talking about this. Hopefully, this dossier will be published soon.


Yvonne is simply a self loathing human being who can't stand the fact she has to live in what's increasingly being called one of the most GLBT-friendly cities in the country and she's stuck with two closeted sons. Maybe if she had grandchildren she'd spend less time poisoning our politics.

If "financial watchdog" Yvonne is so concerned about debt, maybe she shouldn't have forced the city to appropriate 200k over moving a statue one single block. I think the bill for that election should be debited straight from Yvonne's checking account.

Yvonne the snowflake and her minions are upset simply because of the loss of her precious parking spaces. We should just repurpose all green space in the city into parking lots.

While on the topic of trees, how can I get more trees planted on my block? Seems like a few have died or been cut down and not replaced. I also see lots of empty sidewalk squares where a tree could go.


The lack of trees around Downtown is yet another Yvonne special. You can thank her for being actively hostile to having new trees planted and used her power when she ran the VVPA to prevent such.

I absolutely oppose this idea. We have a parking problem because of the significant increase in density. The City did not mandate developers to provide adequate parking. The increase in density necessitates more cleaning services. Reducing the amount of street cleaning will result in the City being filthy. Our taxes have just been increased. We should be getting at least the same amount of services, not less services. The City should come up with a better solution to the parking problem. I would propose that constituents with utility vehicles or larger SUVs should have to pay a larger annual fee for annual parking permits, Columbus Ave. should have residential permit parking for constituents instead of private entities and the City should reopen the pedestrian plaza between Erie and Barrow.


This post looks like it could have come from Yvonne, word for word. More irrational NIMBY garbage.

I don't even drive or own a car, but I support any change to make lives easier for ordinary residents. Plus, how much money will the city save from not having to deploy all these sweeping machines and employees? Those resources and be put toward better sanitation service, which would actually fix the problem of garbage in the streets.

you can do the same and start a pro-development organization by making a commitment and doing the work. my guess is that you have a vested interest in development (but I could be wrong, I could even know you.) and the general public would not buy in.

it should not be surprising that people who mostly like their neighborhood the way it is and only wish to see moderate development and growth would commit the time to participate and work together to that end.

I'm done with this thread after this reply. If you bothered to read the originally attached article, you can see the leader of the NA abused her power to smear and intimidate the very residents they claim to represent. This obviously goes both ways.

And no, I have no ties to developers or have any developer interests. I simply understand how economics and supply/demand works, which many people who run these groups and claim to be outraged by increasing costs of living do not. To say the general public would not buy in - our supposedly "pro-development" mayor won with almost 80% of the vote along with a strong city council majority. The general public made it clear which side the argument they support. You lost in a landslide, perhaps it is, in fact, possible *your* ideas are way out of step with the general public.

Once again, another smear perpetuated by these groups against people who dare disagree - anyone in favor of density must be a real estate shill. Let's not forget that by limiting the housing supply, property owners who run these groups benefit from the high property values resulting from it. And I'm not even going to get into parking.

You say that in regards to just about every issue Jersey City faces, be it parking, development, the Kaytn statue, street trees, bike lanes, millennials, new businesses, mass transit etc. etc. etc.

It also looks like my post struck a nerve, the VVPA website got updated for the first time in months today. Hey VVPA board members (they 100% read this forum), maybe start posting meeting minutes again and start being transparent with your community!

VVPA has a website with all the dates and speakers for each meeting, emails meeting notices to the community about the meetings, has events all over the place. Meeting are held and have been for over 30 years in the same place and on the same 3rd Tuesday of the month.

Tonight a movie in the park.

The truth is that there are a lot of tensions at the local NAs between old timers and recent arrivals. Most of the stuff plays out in the form of whispering and gossiping behind people's back and subtle, passive aggressive actions. A true shame, really.


The VVPA hasn't bothered to post meeting minutes in months and is keeping the community in the dark about it's actions. They've become even more militant and adept at squelching dissent to the point where even Donald Trump would be envious. I'll repeat, these are very flawed and undemocratic organizations in need of serious reform. They should not have the outsize influence on policy that they do.

"It’s unclear how relations between the four soured. The men told The Jersey Journal they initially sparred with Tinia Bland over the neighborhood association, saying she runs it without input from much of the community and elects herself president without holding elections. She denied this in an interview with The Jersey Journal. The men say the Blands are homophobic. Tinia Bland denied this too.

In 2012, both sides agree, Trickel asked for a plot in the neighborhood group’s community garden and Tinia Bland said no. In 2013, Trickel and Tinia Bland ran on opposing slates to be elected committee people for the local Democratic Party. He won, she lost. Someone close to Bland said the loss "absolutely" bugged her."

This is why these worthless groups need to be abolished. They are undemocratic organizations that disregard any input that conflicts with the agenda of its self appointed board members. They only serve to satisfy the ego of a few NIMBY homeowners and actively prevent neighborhoods from changing to meet the changing needs of their current residents, all the while having the chutzpah to claim they speak for every resident.

It makes total sense that these groups spawned from Yvonne.
