I am with you Wishful, this is a recent phenomena over past 5-6 years.

Yes, news media have always hyped storms, but this idea of preemptively and often unnecessarily closing things down has taken off only recently.

Why shutdown things before you know it is necessary? Why not wait and see what conditions actually turn out like?

Activist Crossing Guards.
#4
Home away from home
Home away from home


Does anyone know the bounds of responsibilities and duties of the crossing guards?

All over downtown I encounter "activist" crossing guards, who go beyond helping people across the road and take on the task of directing all traffic through 'their' junction, often doing a poor job of it and causing more confusion and danger than they resolve.

Are they authorised to do this? Or are they supposed to stick to stopping traffic to let people cross, and then getting out of the way again afterwards?

Re: Cornice Repair Contractor Recommendation

Chris at CKP construction, 201-332-6699.

He fabricated a replacement cornice for me from scratch to match historic photos at 249 Second Street, go-past and have a look, it's lovely. CKP seem to be the masters of this kind of work in Jersey City.

He is known and trusted by the historical preservation officer/department, which makes getting historical approval far smoother if you are in one of the historic districts.

Negative parts are: 1. difficult getting in his schedule, things can drag on waiting for him to actually begin work, 2. It's not cheap!

I know you don't mean to Jerseymom, unfortunately you are playing into the hands of racists with their apocryphal stories of white kids from South Africa being 'unfairly' denied places at college.

Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval
#13
Home away from home
Home away from home


I understand taxes are going to go up a lot on many downtown properties, but there is a big difference between 1.7% and 2% (or 2.2% as I believe Bodipooh speculated in some of his earlier missives).

The fact is we just don't know what the rate we will be, the only thing we can say is that if the appraisals are done correctly a $1 million house downtown should end up paying 4 times as much as a $250,000 place in the heights. Now if the heights house is actually valued at $500,000 (extended over the whole heights), it 'reduces' the downtown home's tax to only twice what the heights house is paying.

If you have been watching the market in the past two years it is not just downtown prices that are on the boil.

The way house prices have appreciated over the past couple of years will naturally lead to a fall in the tax rate, otherwise they are going to be collecting double the taxes they were previously.

Bodipooh bandies this 2% figure about, but it is based on nothing more than his own speculation.

1 or 2 family houses in the heights are now worth $400,000+, every one or two family in Journal Square is now worth $600,000+, if they all pay 2% the city would end up with too much money!

A very tall person could probably hit their head, you are right.

The way they have pruned it is horrible though, destroyed the whole spread of the tree, will take many years to return to its former beauty.

Re: tree slaughter on Erie Street

Home away from home


The city [I assume it was they] severely pruned the large cherry tree in front of my house in Hamilton Park today. The work if not slaughter, is at least butchery, none of the other trees on my block seem to have been touched, odd.

Being a cherry tree, it wasn't tall enough to interfere with any power lines; it wasn't obstructing the sidewalk, or otherwise problematic.

Any ideas why this would be done?

Get rid of your stuff, you almost certainly don't need it.

The cost of storing your junk at one of these places for a year is likely more than the stuff costs.

Re: Parking Issues Around Hamilton Park
#26

In my experience, marked parking spots lead to worse use of available space, as the spots are marked out huge. The spots on central avenue in the heights being a case in point, you could fit 50% more cars in without those official metered spots.

Often when you see someone parked badly it is because cars have moved around since they first parked. I think most people get it, and park tight.

Suzy,

There is enforcement of parking permits in Paulus Hook, I see wheelclamped cars almost daily. You honestly have't seen any?

If you had complained about zone enforcement in Hamilton Park or Harsimus Cove, I'd agree enforcement is light (but does still happen). Paulus Hook however is the one district where they are on top of this.

I challenge anyone without a permit to park in Paulus Hook for three days without getting clamped.

One explanation in our different experiences could be due to specific streets? Perhaps the blocks you focus on the peripherary of Paulus Hook and not patrolled?

Robin.
