Re: Park at Brunswick & C. Columbus Dr

I saw them mowing the grounds there again this weekend so maybe they now have a routine in keeping it cut. Also I assume if they made the pedestal so large that someday they plan on placing a larger statue there.

I always get a laugh at how small the statue is with the pedestal being so large along with the weeds so high most of the time.

I will agree with brewster on the Secaucus facility. In 40 years of inspections I've never had a problem there ot JC (now closed). Last year for the first time while getting repairs I did have an inspection done at A One Autoworks at 184 Bay St. Their # is 201-533-0300. I was satisfied but would normally use the free option in Secaucus.

Great job, there are several cars that won't be broken into tonight because of you. I just happened to have my police radio on at the time and heard the call & grab. Doesn't happen like that often.

Hope you cleaned your feet good.

During our last state inspection for a 3 family house, we were failed until we installed a knob lock that is always locked on the outside along with a required self closure.

If your going to change the lock keep this in mind. Of course some lock themself out.

I've talked with this shop owner about this incident, and he described it as the men started to rough him up, and at one point pushed him to the ground. If I can recall correctly, i think punches were thrown. When the two men had him on the ground he reached for his gun and fired shots into the air.

Now, I wasn't there, but if his story is true, and guys were kicking his a$$; his gun is licensed, and he has a carry permit, legally he has the right to defend himself, by all means necessary.


If I remember correctly, the video showed that there was room for him to back up further and pull out of the parking space but he instead decided to confront the people in the double parked car. The many people who met him when he first opened the store got the impression that he was not a stable person that should be handling firearms. Then to say “had the legal right to blow their heads off” after leaving court just shows the attitude he has.

Disclaimer: The following could be wrong. I'm going by what I think I saw someone post here awhile back.

You should call 911 in an emergency, but, if you're using a cell phone, the 911 routing system (?) is not very good, and it's hard for the 911 people to get your call to the right people.

So, if you have a cell phone, you should program the non-911 number for the local police into your speed dial system and call that in an emergency (if you're in the city you live in when you see a crime).

Question for those who know more about this: If what I've written is true, and you have two people calling about a serious crime in progress, would it make sense to have one person call 911 and the other speed dial the local police number, then ask the authorities which call to drop? Or would that just confuse everyone?


Good question, In JC the cell 911 calls go to the Hudson County Center. They in turn switch you over to the JCPD.

I would go with calling 911 as I've had several times called the 5477 number and received a message that all operators are busy and to hold on. That delay could cost you or someone harm. Hudson County does switch you over to JCPD pretty fast.

Also the main Home Laundry building around Merseles, 2nd to 3rd St. is also slated to become phase two of that condo. I hear anywhere from 1 to 3 years away. It's hard to believe so much change is going on around the area in such a short time.

On that note, does anyone know what's going on across the street with the other 12-story building at 361 Newark? The site was so active up til about winter, but ever since then, it's been dead quiet (they pretty much stopped working there around the time the Planning Board approved the increase in height from 6 to 12 stories). I suspect that they're just waiting for permits, but I could be wrong.


I was told a few weeks ago by a city official that the owner got his clearance for 4 then 6 and then 12 stories after the one across the street got theirs. Then he said he never built anything over 4 stories and has now decided to try and sell the property instead of building himself. Oh boy.

The 1st phase will be around the area of 2nd and Merseles, The property is what is now owned by The Home Laundry consisting of the buildings on both 1st & 2nd st (south side). I saw the drawings and they looked good.

Later the laundry buildings on 2nd st. (north side) & 3rd st. should be a phase 2 later on.

The plans also include the place across the street the old art deco police station that was just all redone (maybe this is for parking reasons -- I want to see the plans)


GrovePath, are you saying that after all the $$$ they just put into that old police station they are now going to tear it down?

Re: Smoldering Fire?

Tonight there is a large fire in the rear area north of Caven Point Ave. and Pacific Ave. It's described as a large pile of mulch chips burning 400' wide X 30' wide and 20' high. It's causing embers to land on all the local buildings and is a 2 nd alarm as of 11:30pm.

My guess is it's a location the the recycle plant is storing the wood chips you have been talking about in the past. I guess I could be wrong but... where there is smoke there's fire.

It's great that the woman took the action she did. But it takes more than just the woman calling, the police need to respond fast and this is what appears to have happened in this case.

I've called JCPD for people breaking into cars only to see the police arrive 30-60 minutes later. That does not work and I understand that some things are more important to respond to first, but hers is the exception.

Lets hope this happens more often.

OK, in the 4-5 times that I've used the PATH in the last five years I have observed a lot of what your saying and I feel for all of you.

My suggestion is next time you get on the train yell, `I'm mad as hell and I won't take it anymore' When you hear someone else yell, join them and we'll see how many JC Listers are on the same train and start a revolt.

They would have to build roads to get a cop up there since they don't get out of their car much. You know this is the truth for most.

I'd like to see the light rail with a park but now you have the danger of people getting hurt. Also, if making open space, how high would you have to make the fences along the entire route so kids don't fall off? There is no easy solution.

I've said for 20 years that he was the best cop Jersey City ever had. It's a big loss to everyone in JC. He was always the first one on the scene even after he moved up in the ranks and did not need to.
