Re: Star-Ledger: Developers plan to bolster Jersey City waterfront

good points Skadave. your post was a voice of reason. Newport could be lots better, but so could all of JC neighborhoods.

now i hope these new bldgs dont block my view of manhattan. jk. LOL

Could it have been done better to reflect more of a community atmosphere? Yes. But it could also still be a dilapidated rail yard if it were up to local community groups to decide what to do with the land. You would have the one little league guy with too much power who would want all of the land to become baseball fields, you would have the dog run people, the anti dog run people, the park people, the wallmart people, the don't block my view people, and the historical preservation society people who would try to get the rail yards classified as a historic site.

Re: The New York Times: LeFraks Envision Even Bigger Skyline Across Hudson

rest assured, super_furry, no offense taken.

i laughed at the excerpt you got from the other board. they could just have omitted the word "downtown", you know, as in "prefer to walk into downtown Jersey City"...lets not read too much into it

Bryhove, have you ever been to Newport??? It doesn't sound like it.

Mopotofu -- most of us are not bashing the residents of Newport, but actions (or inactions) of the developer, and the NWA.
If you enjoy living in Newport, great, and all the best. Something that does annoy us is when Newport residents (not you) forget they live in JC! This is from NWA board re: South City Grill:

The music they play is annoying - All the time. My wife and I prefer to walk into Jersey city for brunch because of it, which is a shame. I'm sure most reasonable people just tolerate it because the location is so nice.

I agree with ICricket. I like living in Newport, warts and all. Let everyone else bash it, doesn't matter.
