Jersey City to repeal law restricting chain stores Downtown

BY TERRENCE T. MCDONALD

The Jersey Journal

Jersey City's law restricting chain stores is headed for the chopping block, with the City Council scheduled for an initial vote next week to repeal the two-year old ordinance.

The move comes three weeks after the city said it would block a CVS from opening at 70 Hudson St., a Waterfront office building where the pharmacy giant had signed a lease for a 20,000-square-foot location.

The city enacted the ban in May 2015, when Mayor Steve Fulop was still eyeing a run for governor and looking for support in towns like Montclair where liberal voters say they favor mom-and-pop shops over chain stores.

At the time Fulop pushed the council to adopt the law, he said it was an effort to help Downtown retain some of its character. In a Huffington Post column from June 2015, Fulop wrote that "the commitment small business owners bring to a city helps make their communities more livable."

But the ban "may not hold up under strict scrutiny of federal laws," according to the ordinance set for approval next week that would start the repeal process.

John Holub, president of the New Jersey Retail Merchant Association, said the city's reversal is good news for businesses. The group opposes chain store restrictions, saying government officials should not try to control market forces in this way.

"It's encouraging to see that someone has clearly come to their senses," Holub said. "It was a misguided policy from the get-go."

Jersey City's law restricts chain stores from taking up more than 30 percent of ground-floor commercial space in any one lot in several noncontiguous areas Downtown.

Administration critics chuckled when it argued that the new Columbus Drive Krispy Kreme, the doughnut chain that opened this year inside the zone where chains are restricted, isn't really a chain store because it is a unique "factory" location that provides doughnuts to other retail stores.

The city has declined to say how many certificates of occupancy it has threatened to deny over the chain store ban.

Teen was shot multiple times in daytime murder, authorities

By Caitlin Mota | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- A 19-year-old man who was killed in a daytime shooting on Tuesday afternoon was shot multiple times in the chest, authorities said.

Residents on Woodlawn Avenue reported hearing shots fired at about 3:30 p.m. Police arrived at the scene near 95 Woodlawn Ave. and found Rasheed Rayson with multiple gunshot wounds, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement.

Rayson was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:50 p.m., marking the city's fourth homicide and second fatal shooting in under two weeks.

No one has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting and the cause and manner of Rayson's death are still pending, Suarez said in the statement.

A tense scene played out on the block between Corcoran and Van Cleef streets Tuesday afternoon as dozens of friends and family members gathered to watch as authorities investigated the murder.

"They took our brother," one woman cried as Rayson's body was being taken from the scene.

Rayson's death is the 11th murder in Jersey City and 13th in Hudson County this year.

Anyone with information about Rayson's death is asked to contact the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office at by calling 201-915-1345 or leaving an anonymous tip online.

A 26-year-old Jersey City man needed stitches after being stabbed twice while walking with his girlfriend on Montgomery Street early Tuesday morning, cops said.

At about 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, police went to Jersey City Medical Center where the victim's girlfriend said they were walking near Brunswick Street when someone wearing a black hat and black sweatshirt stabbed the man, according to a police report.

The report does not indicate what, if anything, precipitated the attack.

At the hospital, the victim was "extremely uncooperative and belligerent" toward the responding officers, stating that "he hates the cops" and wanted them to "leave him alone," the report states.

Hospital staff told police the man suffered two lacerations to his left arm that were not life-threatening, but would require stitches, the report indicates.

The victim's girlfriend said she could not identify the attacker, cops said

My money is on he was wandering around Downtown looking to cop coke after a night out of drinking. That's the reason so much time probably passed between him leaving his friends.

Citing chain store ban, Jersey City aims to block new CVS

JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City is poised to block CVS's plans to open a new location in a Waterfront office building, with the city expected to cite its chain store restrictions to kill the deal.

The pharmacy giant recently signed a long-term lease for nearly 20,000 square feet of space on the ground floor of the 12-story building at 70 Hudson St. The location is one of numerous in the Downtown where the city has restricted chain stores from opening.

City spokeswoman Jennifer Morill told the Hudson Reporter this week that the CVS would be in violation of the restrictions on chain stores and that its certificate of occupancy would be denied. She was less specific when The Jersey Journal asked her to comment yesterday.

"This business will be subject to all Jersey City applicable ordinances just like every other business throughout the city that must comply with ordinances in place," Morrill said.

Requests for comment from CVS and from the building's owners, Spear Street Capital, were not returned.

Morrill said the C.O. has not been denied yet.

The city's move to block the CVS has at least one supporter: Ariel Zaurov, co-owner of Downtown Pharmacy, which has two locations, one of them just two blocks south of 70 Hudson. Zaurov told The Jersey Journal he has met with city officials as recently as last week about the CVS deal.

Zaurov called the city's plan to block the store from opening "good news."

CVS is "a monopoly," said Zaurov, who opened his pharmacy in 2005. "Their aim is not to co-exist but to take over."

Chain stores aren't entirely banned, but they cannot take up more than 30 percent of ground-floor commercial space in any one lot in the zone, which includes a number of noncontiguous areas Downtown. Mayor Steve Fulop, who led the effort to put the restrictions into place in May 2015, said they would protect the character of Downtown neighborhoods.

If CVS had picked a location two blocks north, it would not have a problem -- Waterfront properties from the Hoboken border down to Exchange Place are exempt from the chain store restrictions. This illustrates how "absurd" the policy is, according to John Holub, president of the New Jersey Retail Merchant Association.

Holub told The Jersey Journal the ban allows city officials to "pick and choose winners and losers" instead of allowing market forces to work.

"You have an administration that hands out tax abatements like candy but wants to dictate what stores open," he said.

The Jersey Journal asked Morrill why chain stores are allowed in Exchange Place but restricted two blocks south. She did not respond.

In February Krispy Kreme opened a location inside the zone where chain stores are restricted. The city argued the doughnut chain's Jersey City shop is unique because it is a "factory" store, not a normal retail location.

Man punched, robbed in Jersey City after night of drinking, cops say (Downtown)

A 22-year-old Hoboken man was robbed of approximately $90 early Friday morning in Downtown Jersey City, a police report states.

The Court Street man told police he went out for drinks at Taphaus on Second Street with coworkers and left the bar between 1 and 1:30 a.m. The group went to a pizzeria, but because he was "extremely intoxicated" the victim could not tell police which pizzeria they went to, the report indicates.

The man then set out on foot for home, but as he was walking, a group of four males approached him from behind and punched him in the face, the report states.

One of the attackers demanded that he give up money, according to the report, which also states the victim told police one of the robbers pressed something up against his back that felt like a gun.

When the 22-year-old turned around and pulled out his wallet he saw something silver in one of the robbers' hands and gave them between $80 and $100, the report indicates.

The victim told police that he could not remember where the robbery took place because he was "very intoxicated," according to the report.

The man could not give police a clear time of when the incident occurred because it took him several hours to walk back to Hoboken, police said.

The police report also indicates that the man had minor bruising to the left side of his face, but that he refused medical attention.

Man, woman dead in Jersey City murder-suicide


By Caitlin Mota | The Jersey Journal
on May 04, 2017 at 6:57 AM, updated May 04, 2017 at 7:13 AM

JERSEY CITY - Two people were fatally shot in an apparent murder-suicide early Thursday morning, officials said.

Authorities said a man and woman were found dead on Bright Street behind Hudson County Prep High School and across the street from the Booker T. Washington housing complex, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said.

Sources say a gun was found near the two bodies.

By 6 a.m., police had already left the scene leaving behind a few strands of crime scene tape. As residents awoke and employees arrived at the nearby high school, many were searching for answers about what happened.

One man who works at the school, who asked not to be identified, couldn't believe what happened just feet away from County Prep. Yesterday afternoon, he said, a man and woman were arguing nearby, though it may have just been a coincidence.

"Even during the day it's usually pretty quiet," he said.

Gene Rubino, Chief of Investigations with the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, did not comment if the murder-suicide was a domestic incident. The murder is the third in Jersey City this week.

Early Saturday morning, Amir Pleasant, 20, was shot in the chest on Dwight Street. He attempted to drive himself to Jersey City Medical Center, crashed his car outside the hospital, and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Later that morning, Albanelis Vidal De Larosa, 51, was found dead wrapped in blankets on Reservoir Avenue. Her ex-boyfriend, Miguel Angel Cabrera Romero, has been charged with her death.

Additional information was not immediately available.

In this case it is safe to say he is most likely involved with gangs and will retaliate. The only thing I would like to point out is not every person that doesn't cooperate is involved with crime. I'm sure no one will disagree that most of these shootings are criminal on criminal or gang on gang but if you assume that to be the case every time the word "uncooperative" is written in an article you are throwing true victims in the mix as well.

Retired JCPD Detective Been Wilson of the JC Gang Unit actually breaks down in this interview some of the things I have been saying on here and NJ.com for years in regards to gangs and snitching.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDB9q6WvVQI&app=desktop

The reason I have been posting these shootings is to draw attention to the gang problem that has been getting worst. The article I posted here is the 46th victim so far for 2017. 44 of those shot were between the months of January and April. Over the last few years 22/23 gun shot victims had been the average for the first third of the year. We have seen double that and are now entering the part of the year we generally see an uptick in the number of shooting incidents. Shootings have been up in the two previous years over all so if this continues we are looking at a third year straight.

JERSEY CITY - A 27-year-old man was shot Tuesday night at the same intersection where he was the victim of a shooting less than two years ago, officials said.

The victim, a Bergen Avenue resident, was shot in the buttocks and leg near Wegman Parkway and Ocean Avenue at about 8 p.m., city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center in a private vehicle, where he was treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, she said.

It's the second time the 27-year-old has been shot in the same neighborhood. In November 2015, he was shot in the shoulder and then brought to the hospital in a private vehicle. The victim was described as being "uncooperative" with police in both shootings, Morrill said.

Tuesday's shooting comes less than 24 hours after a man was shot on Wade Street. At least three other people have been shot near Wegman Parkway and Ocean Avenue this year.

Authorities ID shooting victim who died while driving himself to Jersey City hospital

A 20-year-old Jersey City resident has been identified as the man who attempted to drive himself to the hospital after being shot early Saturday morning, authorities said.

Amir Pleasant was shot on Dwight Street near Garfield Avenue just before 5 a.m. Residents in the area reported hearing shots fired and watched a car flee the scene, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced.

About a half hour later, police found the car that was seen leaving the shooting scene had crashed on Grand Street near Jersey Avenue, right in front of Jersey City Medical Center. The 20-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, Suarez said.

Pleasant, who drove about three miles before crashing, was shot in the chest and his death has been ruled a homicide, authorities said.

No one has been arrested in connection with his death.

The fatal shooting was the first of two murders in Jersey City this weekend.

Albanelis Vidal De Larosa, 51, was found dead wrapped in a blanket on Reservoir Avenue Saturday morning. Her ex-boyfriend, Miguel Angel Cabrera Romero has been charged with murder.

There have been 11 homicides in Hudson County this year, nine of those have been in Jersey City.

The man was shot in the head and the chest at roughly 5 a.m., said the source, who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to speak about the investigation.

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office confirmed that a man was found with gunshot wounds in a car at Grand Street and Jersey Avenue and he was pronounced dead at the Jersey City Medical Center.

The location where the man crashed was few a hundred yards from the JCMC.

The fatal shooting comes on the same morning a body was found wrapped in a bag on Reservoir Avenue in the Heights. If both fatalities are determined to be homicides, they would be the seventh and eighth in Jersey City this year and ninth and 10th in Hudson County in 2017.

JERSEY CITY -- A body was found wrapped in a bag on a Jersey City street this morning, a witness to the initial investigation said.

The body was found on Reservoir Avenue, near Lienau Place, some time around 8:45 a.m., said Joe Shine, a freelance photographer for The Jersey Journal who is at the scene.

Later this morning the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office confirmed the fatality.
Residents in the area speaking to The Jersey Journal said the victim was a woman. It is unclear how old she was.

"(The body) was in a brown -- almost like a blanket," said Allan Dauber, a resident of Prospect Avenue who noticed police on the scene at 8:30 a.m. "It was all tied up and right on the curb. Like somebody put it out for garbage."

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office and Jersey City police are there investigating. Details on the person's death were not immediately available.

Residents said they could only hear thunder and lighting last night, and heard nothing else out of the ordinary.

"Who dumps a body on a busy residential street? It's very peculiar," said Alessandra Rafferty, a resident of Reservoir Avenue. "It's quiet around here on weekend mornings, but someone is up... people work night jobs."

Hours earlier, a man was shot fatally shot on Ocean Avenue, a source said. The HCPO confirmed that the man was found with gunshot wounds after a crash at Jersey Avenue and Grand Street.

If determined to be homicides, the two fatalities would be the seventh and eighth in Jersey City this year and ninth and 10th in the county in 2017.

JERSEY CITY -- A bank robber donning a gas mask and wielding a long metal rod was arrested Tuesday after one brave customer apprehended the man and held him down while police responded to the scene, federal authorities announced today.

Billy Le, 25, of Jersey City, is charged with one count of bank robbery after allegedly robbing a Wells Fargo Bank with a red-tipped metal rod. He made his first appearance on the charge this afternoon in Newark federal court.

According to a complaint filed by the office of Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick, Le entered the bank wearing a black gas mask while holding a black duffel bag in one hand and the apparent weapon in the other hand. He approached a tell teller and yelled, "Give me your money. Give me all your money," prompting another employee to call the police, authorities said.

Still wielding the metal rod, Le climbed onto the teller's counter and threatened the teller with violence. But that's when a bank customer approached Le from behind, pulled him off the counter, and held him down until law enforcement officers arrived minutes later, Fitzpatrick's office said.

Law enforcement officers arrested Le at the scene and recovered the duffel bag and the metal rod, which appeared to be a pipe bomb. The officers evacuated the bank, after which Emergency Service Unit officers examined the device and determined that it was not an explosive, authorities said.

The duffel bag contained, among other things, a large knife, Fitzpatrick's office said.

The bank is located on Hudson Street, near the foot of Montgomery Street and Exchange Place.

The government was represented by assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua L. Haber, while Le was represented by K. Anthony Thomas, assistant federal public defender of Newark.

The bank robbery count carries a maximum potential penalty of up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense.

JERSEY CITY - A 27-year-old Jersey City felon is facing weapons charges related to a 12-gauge shotgun after he was arrested while running down a Jersey City street with the gun in a garbage bag, police said.

Jimmy DeLeon, of the 400 block of Baldwin Avenue, is charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and possession of a weapon by a felon, the criminal complaint says.

On Saturday at 1:20 p.m., police were conducting surveillance when DeLeon left his home at Baldwin and Hopkins avenues and spoke on his cell phone saying "You coming now, right now. OK, I will meet you on Beacon."

He ran back home, came out with the item in a garbage bag and began running down Beacon Avenue, the criminal complaint says.

When officers approached DeLeon around 35 Beacon St., he immediately said "I'll explain. This isn't even mine. I'm trying to get rid of it." Inside the bag police found a Winchester shotgun with a scope and DeLeon was taken into custody, the complaint says.

DeLeon made his first appearance on the charges Monday in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny. At the hearing, the state moved to detain him through his prosecution and a detention hearing before a Superior Court judge will be held Thursday.

Unfortunately, he can also be 15 going on 16 before the year is over.

Definitely is possible. I remember once a year someone would come around the school in the spring to see how many students wanted to sign up for summer jobs program and you needed to be 14 by June. They would go class to class from the 6th grade and up and I can remember at least two students in my 6th grade class were old enough.

This topic made me look back at one of my old middle school class photos to figure out how many kids were left back at time the photo was taken. Of the kids I knew for a fact had been left back before I counted 8 in the 6th grade but the number might of been as high as 10 because two I can't be sure of. My class size was only about 25 or so. This was in Downtown also but during the 90s.

Ironically I checked the TH website and they have another property open in Hoboken that I think is where the crappy Tilted Kilt was by 9th St. Light Rail.

I do look forward to checking out The Lutze Biergarten.

Maybe I went to wrong link I couldn't find anything about another location in Hoboken. What is it called? Although I could be wrong but I didnt know another place opened in the old Tilted Quilt location, I thought it was still empty.


Ok thanks, I passed by the Hoboken location today and their is a Tap Haus there. I also realize why I thought the place was still empty now. They seem to have installed darker windows and some have dark curtains. When it was Tilted Kilt it was easier to see inside as you pass by.

One thing that definitely was a dead give away as to how many people lived in such a small building was the amount of trash and recycling cans in front of the building. Compare the amount of cans they have to the larger apartment buildings across the street on Google Maps.

JERSEY CITY - Were two men set up for an armed robbery at a Jersey City motel on Tonnelle Avenue early Friday?

The victims told police they invited a woman to their room and after she stepped out to get ice, she returned with another woman and a man, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said today.

When the man with the two women flashed a gun, the victims ran out of the motel room, Morrill said, adding that they said they heard a gunshot as they fled.

Responding Jersey City police officers said they found a bullet hole in a wall in the room. The robbers got away with two cell phones, two debit cards and an identification card. There were no injuries, Morrill said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Jersey City police tip line at (201) 547 - JAIL.

It must be a few years now.... did the JCPD ever solve the murder of the poor JFK store owner near Journal Square?

If they did, what were the results of the trial?


It was a little more then a year ago but it is still an unsolved case so far with no arrests made.
