I like the way the architecture echoes aspects of the 101 Hudson tower next to it, clever by the architect. Impresseive that they have tried to do something different and interesting, unlike the majority of these new towers that slap up the cheapest brick and glass thing possible.

Re: Heights to get a new police station?

There is a public relations and marketing benefit to having a police station presence with associated cops and activity in the middle of a shopping and commercial area.

People like to see police around the place.

Re: Tires stolen from 2 luxury cars in Downtown Jersey City, cops say

Tire = rubber exterior covering of a wheel.

Wheel = the entire assembly of wheel-rim and tire.

They stole the wheels, not the just the tires.

Caterpillars in Trees.
#8
Home away from home
Home away from home


Can anyone shed light on the plague of caterpillars that are currently covering trees downtown? Seems to be trees of all varieties impacted, my cherry tree has them, as do the plane trees, pear trees, seems indiscriminate.

The tree branches are covered in unsightly clumps of silk, with hundreds of caterpillars inside. The caterpillars that emerge from the clumps are small, white and hairy.

Anyone know what species this is, are they a new kind of moth that has infested this area? Or is this nornal, and I just haven't noticed it before?

Is it a threat to our trees? Should I cut the clumps off and kill the caterpillars? The birds don't seem to be eating them.

I have not noticed this in previous years.

Re: Recommendations- Dumpster Rental

I always used the Jersey City Incinerator Authority (JCIA), you have to go in person over to 440, the place to get the permit is next door, so you can do it all. Once you have the dumpster permit, you also need to go to the Parking Authority on Central Avenue to get no parking signs, they won't give you the signs until you have the permit in hand.

I had an idea that a government place would be cheaper than a commercial vendor, but I never actually rented from a commercial place to compare, so I may be wrong.

JCIA is now merged into Department of Public Works, hard to find information on the Jersey City website, but seems the number for dumpster rental is 201-547-2600.

The old JCIA website used to have more information including prices, the Jersey City website is dreadful, they spent money trying to make it look nicer, yet the content is extremely poor.

I remember it being something like $600 for the biggest container (30 yard), with two tons free, then you pay per ton. If you fill a 30 yard container with heavy stuff like dirt/rubble/plaster/rocks you will be way over two tons.

This building is ugly beyond belief.

Even in comparison to other cheap towers going up around town by Lefrak and the like, this building looks horrible even against that low bar.

Really the architect should be ashamed.

Edit: Architect is Hollwich Kushner (HWKN)

Re: 1800's Grammar School to be torn down in Paulus Hook

Home away from home


The Paulus Hook Neighborhood Association is even officially called "Historic Paulus Hook Association", so originally at least, historic preservation was important to them.

If they don't go to bat for this, then I can't see they have any shred of that historic mission left.

If the Historic districts mean anythng at all, surely they won't be allowed to demolish this building.

Why can't it continue to be used as a school, the purpose for which it was built?

Re: Mayor Fulop orders gender-neutral restrooms in city buildings

The funny thing about these new bathroom rules is that it was city/state law that mandated (and I suspect still mandates) separate male and female bathrooms to begin with.

Restaraunts, bars, stores and establishments in general, would in most cases be only too happy to spend less space and effort maintaining one bathroom instead of two.

The overreaction to these snowfalls gets more absurd each time.

Last time, not content with closing for one day, Jersey City schools closed the second day, despite no snow falling, because "there was a risk of ice".

Astonishingly ugly! I appreciate that can be said about most of these modern towers, but your average Lefrak tower, though bad, looks nicer than this carbuncle.

Soviet style brutalist architecture, out of scale and with no redeeming qualities.

On the rear side, which you can't see in the photos, is a huge windowless wall with channels of cinder-block covered with some green siding material. I can only pray that they intend to construct some other structure to cover that part, as the way it looks now is dire.

How is the land value portion calculated? Is there a formula based on lot size and location?

I heard a rumor that the Lotus (no longer Blue Lotus) Indian restaurant in Vladimir's space on Erie at Eighth Street is up for sale again, though I can't find it mentioned anywhere.

The food in the latest incarnation was/is decent, didn't seem to change much when switching from Blue Lotus to Lotus.

Newport Mall is a good deal, around $100 per month, if you are a resident of Hamilton Park area you receive a discount.
