I will have to try this during the Spring. Is it big enough for a long-john cargo bike?

Jumba72, that's the 2nd time you've mentioned your "friend" finding their stolen bike at GSB. I don't know if you're intending it, but you are making it sound like GSB would sell stolen bikes. I know Rodney and they would never do that. They only sell new bikes. They accept used bikes and donate them to charity (can't remember the name).
Maybe someone bought the stolen bike on the street from some thief and then brought it into GSB to have it fixed or tuned-up and your friend saw it when it was there for work?

We really need clarification from your friend about what happened.

Just having steel lugs makes it a keeper. Just curious how was it locked up and what was it locked up to ?


Well, that's why I say it was "taken" instead of "stolen" because it was leaning against the fence in front of my apt. and I was inside. And when I went back out, it was gone.

Anyway, thought I would relay a bit of good news in case it gives anyone else hope. I recovered my bike last week. I was driving with a friend down Pacific Ave. and took a double take when I saw my bike leaning against the wall of a bodega. I stopped the car and went next to the bike and waited for the "owner" to come out of the store.
We talked for a bit and I prefer to believe his story that he bought it from some friends for $20. Why else would he be riding a stolen bike just two blocks away from the location it was stolen from? So I actually gave him $20 to show I believed his story and didn't want to rip him off. I was also so happy to see my bike again I really didn't care about a few bucks. Someone sprayed some yellow paint on it so I'll repaint the frame soon.

We have the same problems with a bar here in BeLa on the corner of Communipaw and Halladay. Every night that they are open the crowd is out on the street and sidewalk drinking, yelling, peeing and fighting. Cars park illegally along the whole block (there is no parking allowed on that side of the block because the fire engines need that space to turn)

How many times do cops have to be called to scenes like this before the bar owners can be forced to shut down??

Actually, this is complete BS. Past history has shown Dan has worked with administrations before Healy. Dan worked with Fulop on Pay to Play, and Dan worked with Healy on bicycle lanes.

I suspect Dan will still be here working to make downtown JC better long after Fulop has moved on to other political ambitions too. And this is coming from someone who is voting for Fulop.

I thought OneOBalls comments about getting someone elected is only the first step and you have to keep working for reform showed a lot of wisdom. Which part of his thoughts were "silly" Althea? Or do you actually believe that anyone who suggests S. Fulop doesn't walk on water "hasn't been paying attention."

I also don't remember Dan leading any voter recall movement against Healy. That was a signature drive lead by Raiz Wahid among others. Levin did demand Healy and another Councilman step down voluntarily. But I believe he thought the whole voter recall movement would not get enough signatures and people's time could be better utilized towards more productive reform work.

Dan Levin is and always has been an independent. What about you OneSkirt? Are you able to think independently and choose your candidates on their record, or does Fulop say vote for X and you ask "how many times sir?"

Voting for Dan ≠ Voting for Healy.

I think many of us envision getting both reformers into office, Levin and Fulop.

Claim: Led the effort to have Jersey City adopt thenPay to Play ordinances, the toughest ethics reforms in NJ.

Reality: was part of a group of many people who tried valiantly but ultimately it was Fulop who got it done.


Reality is that CivicJC did all of the REAL work in seeing the need for the reform, setting up meetings with other groups to learn how to write the reform so it would stand up in courts, and then finding a Council person to introduce it. Then Fulop worked with CivicJC on the last mile to get it introduced. Nothing Fulop did got the other Council members to vote on it. It passed because of the fallout from the Dwek sting, and because if the Council didn't address it, CivicJC would next work to make it a ballot issue that the voters of JC would vote on in the coming election.

Fulop could have really promoted the unglamorous work that the volunteers of CivicJC did to write the reform, as a way to encourage other citizens of JC to also become more politically active because here was a shining example that all of your work can actually cause change, but instead he used CivicJC's reform effort solely to promote himself and get some publicity.

I'm glad the reform did pass, but it was an opportunity lost on Fulops part to encourage people to participate in reforming their government.

Not endorsing Dan Levin for Ward E is another lost opportunity for Fulop. It clearly shows Fulop's emotions and ego cripple his thinking. Look at it this way. If Fulop was a manager at a private sector company and he chose someone for a position just because they were the only one that asked him nicely for it, he would have been fired immediately.
The position should have been filled by the person with the best track record of accomplishment, and most experience. If that person is not afraid to tell you they disagree with you at times then all the better.

I hope Fulop can learn from this.

I would follow On_The_3rd's route. I tried it on bike and from the fence opening to the end of path at the cul-de-sac road, takes only 2 minutes. I've been using various routes through the area daily since the bridge got swept away and, while you should definitely be in "aware" mode, it seems safe enough.
There's no place to hide for an attacker so if you stay alert you can turn around and go back if you see someone who doesn't look friendly to you.
All I've ever seen are other joggers/bikers and friendly skate boarders hard at work honing their skills.

Turn right onto that dirt road right after crossing the light rail tracks. Go to the end and fork to the left and go through an opening in the fence and head towards the turnpike extension. Turn left before the turnpike and follow dirt road. To cross the huge puddle, go to the left, onto the concrete foundation left from some bldg. follow path along fence to Johnston Rd. Turn left onto Johnston and head to LSP!

I live near LSC and I need that bridge to get to and from downtown JC every day on my bicycle. Please don't pretend its only there so downtown JC people can get to LSP easily. Its not.

And BTW, the shortcut is still useable even with part of the area fenced off for the pipeline project. I use it most days after work, but there is a part of it where I have to carry the bike and walk, but you can definitely get through.

Great Candidate for Councilman-At-Large: Sean Connelly

JCI articles mentioning Sean, including one on Council Candidate Debate:
http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/tag/sean-connelly/

Statement from Sean:

Dear Friends,
Not long ago the people of Jersey City were losing their homes to staggering taxes. Businesses fled and development ground to a halt. City Hall failed to address the bleeding and the city faced a financial, societal and political crisis. When Bret Schundler offered new ideas and leadership, I devoted my time, effort and finances to his successful campaign. We won and for the next eight years, while serving as the City?s Corporation Counsel, taxes were cut in half (including a six month tax free holiday). Businesses returned, development and redevelopment boomed and the city witnessed historic prosperity, stability and urban rebirth.
I left City Hall in 2001, but never left our city nor my passion for improving our lives here. Today however, we face tax bills which have skyrocketed by 83% over the last eight years. The city budget has more than doubled over the last eight years despite an inflation rate of only one or two percent and once again there is the prospect of our people losing their homes. Despite a gleaming waterfront, the much neglected inner city seems all but forgotten.
Whereas big corporate developers and their tenants are offered tax abatements, the local ?Mom and Pop? corner stores (along with the rest of us) are only offered higher tax bills. This leaves us all little to spend at our local stores which simply cannot compete with the big corporate tax abated businesses. As a result our local small businesses cannot hire our citizens, downsize or are forced to close. Who speaks for them?
Our once proud children?s and youth programs have all but vanished, at a time when they are in such desperate need. Then who speaks for them?
Jersey City residents remain among the unemployed despite the heralded thousands of jobs on the waterfront, who speaks for them?
Sadly, what was once a city of promise has become a city of mismanagement, fear and hopelessness with a city government disconnected from the people it has sworn to serve.
I am running for Council at Large in Jersey City because I cannot and will not sit idly by as our City regresses to a situation that I hoped was in the past. I demand that government lives within its means, control spending, lower taxes, and encourage business and job growth while maintaining vital services. Many say it cannot be done, yet we know better. We did it before and will do it again. It can and must be done and I am eager, excited and ready to do the job.
Please vote for me as Councilman at Large so that I may serve you and lead all of us to a better place.
As your Councilman at Large, I will be your voice and advocate in fighting to make government serve all of you and improve our lives here in the city we call home.

Sincerely

Sean M. Connelly

What about the bicycle lanes which Dan and Bike JC just recently accomplished?
What about his work with the Harsimus Cove Association?
How about One Jersey City?

And he did all of this volunteer community activism while struggling to raise two kids and run a framing shop in Hoboken for which he was sole-proprietor.
