Re: Notice: JC Proposes to Dispose of .98 Acres of Two Parks

I often see that park being used to play volleyball by a large group of people.

They bring their own volleyball net, music and beers and have a good time.

I never realised there use to be a public pool at 531 Communipaw Avenue.

Can still be seen on a satellite image:

Any old timers remember this "Harmon Street Pool"?

How does flooding happen in the Heights?

Re: McNair Academic Ranked #1 in NJ!

Well said Brewster, I add my voice to yours as someone who has interacted with her personally and been impressed. I haven't met a parent who doesn't like her, I am sure they exist, but among my network of 20-30 parents, all like her.

I'd like to hear from these students who the teacher's union claim feel Ms. McCabe was disrespectful to them, my daughter and her friends like Ms. McCabe. What does "disrespect" (a horribly over and misused word) mean in this context? She is a principal in charge of a school, so has policies, rules and discipline to enforce, I am sure some students will end up at odds with her over some of these things, but "disrespect" implies some flagrant form of inappropriate behavior that I find difficult to imagine coming from the Ms. McCabe I interacted with.

If Ms. McCabe was to be laid off / position not extended, why on earth would this be handled by her being "escorted out of the building by security"? this how Jersey City handles its severances? This is not how a professional organization should handle it severances.

The Board of Education must explain its actions.

Must be difficult for a public school principal, or police chief, to run their organisation as they don''t control raises and promotions.

Seems it is true, the trimphant message from Ron Greco was extremely bad form.

We really can't allow the teachers' union to weild this disproportionate power over the board, budget and policies.

We have to get parents to vote.

Are the rumours that Kate Mckade, principal of Mcnair, has been fired/pushed out correct?

I saw a copy of a message, purportedly from Ron Greco, head of the teachers' union, reveling in the 'fact'.

Is that genuine? I haven't seen anything about it online.

Anyone know anything about White Cap Construction Supply on Tonnelle? Do you have to be a contractor with an account setup to go in there? Do they only sell in bulk?

Whenever I drive past I wonder whether there are bargains to be had there versus Home Depot and Lowes, but have chickened out of pulling in.

Today I finally got round to looking them up on the web, it's still unclear to me whether they service walk in customers.

Great that you are holding stoop sales, but they are not part of the Hamilton Park Festival.

The Hamilton Park festival is held in Hamilton Park, where there will be dozens of neighborhood and commercial vendors, food vendors, petting zoo, kids entertainment, live music.

Come on out to the park tomorrow!

The one contested race on my ballot was for county freeholder where an anti-corruption candidate was running against the embodiment of Hudson County Democratic Organization machine politics in Tom Degise.

For democratic committee-man in my Hamilton Park area, the only choice was board of ed (ex)member Mat Schapiro, who is known to be moving to California.

Democracy in action!

Quote:
Blocking an intersection so you can be inches from the car in front will not save you ANY TIME


Drivers follow through like that during gridlock, because if they don't then cars turning from the other direction will come in front of them further backing up the jam and they will never get across.

In heavy traffic situations, if you politely wait for the other side of the intersection to be clear before crossing, you would never get across.

Unless there is a cop there to direct traffic into taking turns (ignoring the lights), it is a no-win situation.

Why do they close downtown for a 5K when one could be run perfectly well in Liberty State Park or Lincoln Park? Or even along the waterfront.

Parks are great for jogging, that's part of what they are designed for.

Fight it, it will be dismissed if you can show there is something wrong on the ticket. I had one dismissed in NYC because the traffic warden had written "Volk" (Volkswagen) instead of Volvo on the ticket, everything else on the ticket was correct.

I didn't even have to appear in person, nyc has a system for appealing tickets by mail!

I received a call-back form one of the organisers, the parade is going ahead on Sunday 10th March 2019, rain or shine.

Starts at 12:30 pm by the Lincoln Statue on John Kennedy Boulevard and Belmont Street.

Can anyone provide any information on the 2019 Jersey City Saint Patrick's Day? Will it go ahead in the rain?

I am supposed to be attending but impossible to verify it is going ahead with lots of rain forecast for the morning.

I have found a couple of websites, but neither has any up to date information:

Who paid for that billboard? Hardly a groundswell of disgruntled [would be] workers in Queens:


The Job Creators Network (JCN) is a conservative and advocacy group founded by Home Depot co-founder and former CEO Bernie Marcus.[1] It is funded mainly by corporate executives and conservative foundations including the Mercer Family Foundation, and has been extensively promoted by far-right website Breitbart.[2][3]

Re: Do you recommend particular Roofer?
#26
Home away from home

Calling Brewster, MDM, and any other Jclist home improvement experts! Any tips for locating leaks on an asphalt roof?

I have a small leak coming through the ceiling of the unit two floors below the roof, i.e. there is no visible leak or dampness in the ceiling or walls of the apartment directly under the roof, instead the leak is coming through the ceiling of the apartment second from the top floor.

It only leaks when it rains hard, and usually with a 12+ hour delay, so if it rains hard tonight, tomorrow evening it will leak for a while through the roof of the ground floor unit. The leak isn't a huge amount, just enough to make the ceiling damp in that area.

I have opened up the ceiling where the leak is visible, and can see it dripping between floorboards from above. I can only think it is coming down inside the wall from roof and then running along floorboards and dripping down.

Initially I suspected a leak in the siding or from around the windows in the floor above, but I have checked those thoroughly, and sealed any gaps where water could possibly get in around windows.

The roof looks ok overall, so I am at a loss to know what to do. There is a chimney on that side of the roof, so going to double check the roof tar around that.

Cheers,
Robin.

Are you on the top floor? If you don't get water to come out when you bleed the radiator, then the pressure is probably too low on your boiler.

Assumming your client was riding on the sidewalk to be hit by a vehicle turning off of 440, which is a divided highway.

This is why bicycle riding on the siedwalk can be *more* dangerous than riding on the street, drivers don't expect fast moving bicycles to be moving across the crosswalk from the sidewalk, and so they get hit.

Terrible that the Teacher's Union gets to dictate how the school system is run, but me and most of the other parents in Jersey City weren't there tonight, and 150 teachers were, until enough of us make it a priority to oppose them, they get to run the show.
