Re: Man Fatally Struck by Light Rail in JC

Home away from home


Huge second on Dolomiti's comments below.

The one great irony in this whole discussion is that HBLR was ASSURED by the City of JC that the south end of Jersey Avenue would never be opened to vehicular traffic into the park. Now it seems firmly in the plans, and not only will it be traffic crossing the Morris Canal Basin to Jersey Ave., it will be a ton of commuter traffic, all jumping to the exit/entrance just north of the main toll plaza, thinking it will be faster than going to the next exit by Montgomery. The signs there are currently minimal and the biggest issue has been joggers and bicyclists thinking they can "beat the train" and ducking around/under the barrier. Seen a bunch of close calls...

First of all, this is a tough crowd, and if you can't handle the heat you should stay away.

The marketing release was beyond awful. Drag in every cliche and buzzword you've ever heard, and hope it sells? And for a place that plans to open in roughly 2 weeks to not even have their menu up so people who see the pre-opening announcement can get an idea of what to expect is just a plain failure at marketing 101. Do I plan to rush down there for a $9 beer and a "backyard experience"? Nope, I can do that in my own back yard with friends. And I can take in the view almost anywhere I want, and anytime I want, for free-

Why the 5:00 a.m. urgency is still a mystery. That's typically basic maintenance, not an emergency-

I get up at 5:00 anyway on weekdays, but that sure was loud. It was on Montgomery, between Jersey and Varick, and Montgomery westbound (only) was closed. One of those huge vacuum trucks that they generally use for pumping out the drains at the street corners. I think they pulled two manhole covers mid-block so that's why it went off twice.

My job will be to expose the secret deals everyone has been making with the City and their cronies. One day at a time.

I work for the City and I am sick and tired of the BS that passes along one administration to the next


You're such a loser. As has been mentioned, major rehabs are automatically eligible for a 5 year abatement. It has nothing to do with Dixon or city council.

BTW, if anyone from Dixon is reading this, please buy up some of the abandoned properties in my neighborhood in the Heights to convert into 2,3, or 4-family homes. I'm tried of the blight, and it sounds like you guys know hoe to get the job done. Great jobs guys.



Um, might want to re-think that request. Dixon owns about 6-7 houses on my block alone in DTJC. Two of them they purchased 2 years ago and they've been sitting empty ever since. Don't know if they plan to refurb them or sell them as-is, but probably the former. Dixon is usually the last to shovel during the winter and when they are doing refurb work they pay zero attention to the noise they make, starting early (like 7:00) and sometimes all weekend. As neighbors go, pretty obnoxious...

Tile is the absolute most useless, and over hyped, piece of technology to come around in quite some time. It has tapped into a market of misinformation and lots of people are buying them thinking it can do something that is simply not able to do.

Well, I dealt with them on high-value stuff, not just homeowners which you asked about. Standard protocol when notified of a claim is to deny coverage. Then it gets litigated, sometimes for years, before a legitimate coverage payment is made. I spent 20 years in that industry and I saw it firsthand. Insurance requires a certain amount of trust between both parties. They expect you to pay the premium and you expect them to pay for covered loss or damage. I won't do business with a company that I don't trust-

Mostly agree but it's a matter of timing and perspective. Those of us who bought and moved here 30 years ago were in a rough town and we welcomed other newcomers and we worked together to help improve the neighborhood and the schools and responsible government. Some of us stayed, some left for the suburbs or beyond.

So how long you been in JC, Harry? I'd bet less than 10 years. For a Newbie on this Forum, I thought your comment was obnoxious.

My ancestors arrived on The Mayflower in 1620, so I'm 12th-generation here . The Native American Indians might be the only ones who could legitimately say that we "came and ruined it".

It's not that hard but it can take awhile if you have to trim a bunch of that very hard wood to fit into the head. I've done it with both a very sharp sheath knife and with a mini grinder. Look it up as a DIY project and take it on as a challenge.

also your subject says "woman filed as HE undressed"... but the person filmed was a female human who identified as a woman so it seems you misunderstand basic use of pronouns too.





Don't forget that she also transmogrified this into a point about priests (including gay priests) molesting children. Crazy-

A Jersey City police officer has been suspended without pay following his arrest on a drug charge in Bayonne last week.

Anthony Newell, an 11-year veteran of the police force, was arrested on March 1 at East Fourth Street and Lord Avenue along with 30-year-old Eileen Conway, of Jersey City, according to Bayonne police.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... ed_after_drug_arrest.html

strange that he wasn't fired?


Wondered why as well. Innocent until proven guilty? Union rules? Dunno. But he makes over $100k a year so now he's contemplating his future at home while we pay him over $8k/month.

It's the industry standard in today's market. Like any sport or hobby you have junk, cheap, affordable, and high end. You wouldn't know it unless you were in the game.


Exactly. But my question is why would anyone in the game, who can presumably appreciate a high-end machine, leave it in an inadequately-locked bike room?


People leave 50K machines on the road routinely when they park their cars. At some point, you just hope and trust that humanity will not let you down. I dont know if the bike rooms in question were inadequately locked, but I am assuming each the rooms was locked and that the criminal simply broke / circumvented those locks. Either way, the victim is not at fault. Owning an expensive bike does not make you deserving of being the victim of theft or burglary.


Bod, I did NOT mean to imply in any way that the victim was "at fault". But let's face it, a bike can disappear into the back of a truck and be gone forever whereas a car (possibly with LoJack or at least alarmed) is a tougher steal and is either on the road or headed to a chop shop. I ride some nice bikes as well as old mopeds and I lock the heck out of them. The bicycles come inside when I'm home.

Jolly - what are the routes helicopters are supposed to use when going from Kearny to the NYC helipads? My understanding is they are supposed to go over 139 and 14th Street/Holland Tunnel which is why that Target and Acme get a ton of low flying overheads.

Yet down in the Van Vorst area we get double digits flights overhead daily. Some are higher than others. The number of flights has gotten steadily worse over the past decade.

Would be nice if the industry made a bigger push for quieter equipment...



I'm also in VVP area and I agree with the increase in traffic. Been here for decades. As a former fixed-wing pilot I know it's pretty difficult to gauge altitude from the air or the ground but my call would be circa 500' with the occasional lower ones. And they are loud...

Kearny probably isn't the source/destination of these flights. My bet is they're mostly from Linden Airport (farther South). I fly in/out of Linden a few times a year and there are a whole bunch of news and tourist copters based there. VVP is pretty much in a straight line from there to NYC. Watch them flying and you'll see they're mostly heading SW or NE.

The 1000 foot rule doesn't apply to helicopters. But, it is not the wild west. There are prescribed routes in and out of the NYC area. Unless over the Hudson below certain altitudes (varies by location), helicopters will be in touch with ATC (approach control or local towers), in radar contact with a discrete transponder code. If they are breaking rules it will be known. As far as the 2-3 feet above a building, if that is to mean actually above the building itself, not offset, that is crazy hard to do at speed. People ALWAYS greatly underestimate the height of helicopters. If you think you can judge the height from just looking you are wrong.

I have FiOS 50/50 service Downtown and it's consistently 59 Down and 65 Up. But that's in a 1-family house with a whole bunch of hard-wired computers connected (for my business). The other thing that comes to mind is whether your building uses an Ethernet Hub or a proper Switch -- makes a big difference...

From October 1 to May 1, the rental
premises shall be maintained at
a temperature of at least 68

The same can be said for you, "Why not give it a rest?" Aren't we talking about a child, not politics. I think a gay star who went through something similar has more to say on the subject than you or me. It is absolutely evil to place any child on hormones, something that must be done because in approximately five years, this "boy" will have a body of a woman.

Since you are intellectually challenged, I will try to explain the difference between our posts: you are posting more and more, trying to convince others about your viewpoint, while I have done none of that and simply pointed out to you that your posts are being ignored. I have no reason to "give it a rest" because I have done nothing to try and convince all others of my viewpoint, which I have neither shared, nor tried to impose it on others. For all you know, I could be in agreement with you.


The fact that she's posted something like 42 times out of 143 total posts on this thread alone says it all. Instead of "giving it a rest", I'm guessing most of just wish she'd go away. Incredibly tiresome....
