Wouldn't be surprised if they don't cover this. I have noticed over the years they seem to be selective with covering crimes Downtown. Sometimes when they do cover them they don't mention exact locations in the article.

For example they never reported on a man being shot in the Van Vorst Park area a couple months ago.

Man dies 2 weeks after being stabbed; charges upgraded to murder (Academy and Summit)

A man who was stabbed in the face and chest last month has died and his accused attacker is now facing murder charges, authorities said.

Carl Salisbury was taken to RWJBarnabas Health's Jersey City Medical Center in critical condition with stab wounds to his back, chest and face on Oct. 20.

Lateefah Rabb, 34, was initially charged with aggravated assault, but those counts were upgraded to murder after Salisbury died on Nov. 4, a criminal complaint on the new charge said.

According to the initial criminal complaint, police said that security video captures Rabb entering the building with the victim at 6:18 p.m. and at 7:16 p.m. she was seen running from the building with the victim close behind her.

The victim had blood stains on his shirt, according to the complaint, which noted that the weapon used in the attack was recovered. The criminal complaint did not describe the relationship between Rabb and Salisbury.

Rabb was charged in early September with attacking another woman with a scooter, causing a head injury that required staples to close. In 2012 Rabb was charged stabbing a woman five times. She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to 280 days time served and two years probation.

Salisbury's death is the 24th homicide in Hudson County and 19th in Jersey City this year. Services for Salisbury will be Saturday at 9 a.m. at Emmanuel Pentecoastal Church in Jersey City.

Re: Trick R Treating in Hamilton Park area?

Any idea if the trick or treating is any better in that area than Bloomfield and Garden on the Northside of Hoboken? I been taking my daughter there the last few years but I'm willing to change it up if it is about the same or better. Would be cool to do it in Downtown since the Dentist office on Newark ave is planning to give money for unwanted candy to the kids. Would be a win win for her, she can keep the candy she likes and get a little cash too for candy she wouldn't have eaten anyway. Any other good spots Downtown?

I noticed door to door trick or treating hasn't been the same after 9-11. Majority of kids stick to Malls and main avenues now. I like door to door better since that is what I did when I was young.

Did anybody on this forum hear the shots on Friday and know what time this occured? From comments I read in the past on here I know a decent amount of people live within a few blocks of this shooting. I'm assuming since teens were involved and it happened in the afternoon it's possible it occurred during lunch for Ferris students or as school let out. Anybody know anything more then what's in the article?

Another daytime shooting happened by Lincoln High also a couple days before this one that also lacked details in the article like if students were involved and the exact time it happened.

An 18-year-old wanted in last week's daylight shooting that left one teenager injured in Jersey City has been arrested, authorities announced.

Jahil Jackson of Wallis Avenue was apprehended Monday after police spotted him in the area of the Booker T. Washington housing complex, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

Jackson had been identified as a suspect in the Friday shooting at Bates and Colden streets, which sent a 17-year-old to a hospital with a non life-threatening wound to his leg, Morrill said.

When police saw Jackson Monday at 1:30 p.m., he fled on foot but was caught on Montgomery Street, Morrill added.

He was charged with two counts of criminal attempt, two counts of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, and various weapons offenses.

Morrill said last week that the afternoon shooting was the result of a fistfight among teenagers.

JERSEY CITY -- Two teen boys were arrested carrying loaded guns after police responded to a shots fired call in Greenville.

The boys, both 14 years old, face multiple weapons offenses for the incident on Winfield Avenue Friday night, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

At about 9 p.m., police were called to the area near Winfield and Ocean avenues on reports of shots fired. Officers saw the two boys fleeing the area on their bikes and stopped to question the teens, Morrill said.

One teen tried to discard a loaded, sawed off rifle. The second teen was caught carrying a handgun loaded with one round and a spent shell casing, she said.

The handgun was reported stolen out of North Carolina, Morrill said.

Both are being held at the Union County Juvenile Detention Center.

JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City police arrested two men spotted in a stolen car near the Grove Street PATH Station and also found stolen gun inside the vehicle, authorities said.

On Tuesday, police set up surveillance after confirming the 2013 Infinity parked at the corner of Grove Street and Newark Avenue had been reported stolen in Texas, according to a criminal complaint.

Authorities then watched as Jersey City residents Jerome Mack entered the passenger side vehicle and Anthony Smith got into the driver's side. Additional units were called to the scene and the vehicle was stopped after it began driving away, the complaint alleges.

Mack and Smith were removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest. Smith was found to have a Ziploc bag that contained suspected cocaine and a straw, according to the complaint.

A .40 caliber handgun, also reported stolen in Texas, was then found in the vehicle's center console, the court document states.

Mack, 34, of Beacon Way, was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and receiving stolen property regarding the gun, the complaint says.

Smith, 49, of Morgan Street, was charged with receiving stolen property regarding the vehicle, receiving stolen property regarding the gun and possession of drug paraphernalia, the complaint says.

Both men made their first appearances on the charges Wednesday in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny.

At the hearing, the state moved to hold both men though the course of their prosecution and a detention hearing is set for Monday before Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale.

JERSEY CITY -- One person is dead and another injured after gunfire erupted Sunday afternoon, police sources say.

The shooting happened on Forrest Street between Bergen Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive at about 1:30 p.m.

The first victim, a man believed to be in his 20s, was shot multiple times and was immediately brought to Jersey City Medical Center where he died a short time later, multiple sources tell The Jersey Journal.

A second victim was found a short time later and was brought to the hospital with a non life threatening injury and is in stable condition, sources said.

Crowds of people gathered near the Martin Luther King Driver intersection watching as police began their investigation.

The Rev. Herbert Daughtry was finishing Sunday services at the House of The Lord Church when the congregation heard about a dozen shots fired in the neighborhood.

At least 12 evidence markers scattered along the street as police appear to have been focusing their investigation near 322 Forrest St.

"Tell me this isn't another shooting," one man yelled as he drove by the city's Emergency Service Unit. Public Safety Direct Jim Shea was also seen arriving to the investigation.

Sources say there was some kind of fight involved in the shooting, possibly over drugs.

This will be the 14th homicide in Jersey City this year and the 17th in Hudson County. The shooting is on the same block where Ahmin Colclough was gunned down in September.

Additional information was not immediately available.

JERSEY CITY -- A Jersey City woman who thought a man was holding a door open for her at a shopping mall was instead knocked out cold when the man sucker-punched her, Jersey City police said.

The 19-year-old woman, who lost consciousness "temporarily" and suffered a cut above her nose, was leaving JCPenney at the Newport Centre mall in Jersey City at 12:40 p.m. Sunday when the man punched her in the forehead and then fled, the police report said.

Dan Brown, 29, of Manhattan, was charged with aggravated assault, tampering with public records, hindering apprehension and trafficking in personal identification belonging to another person, the complaint said.

He was apprehended with the help of a witness and an of-duty corrections officer, police said. While bystanders helped the woman, a witness followed Brown while on the phone with police and then flagged down a corrections officer, who stopped Brown, the complaint says.

While being processed, Brown gave a false name. Police found he had several ID cards, two social security cards and three public assistance benefit cards on him, the complaint said.

The victim, who refused medical attention, told police that she did not know Brown.

Brown 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 the course of his prosecution.

"Asked about her new home on Ogden Avenue, Jackie, as she is called, said the place has been reduced to bare studs. It is being completely renovated because of its age and yes, she has a lot of say about the job. No doubt this means a big kitchen, hardwood floors, cool lighting and a choice of gun turret colors (kidding)? I kind of like her honesty -- is that the word?"

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal


JERSEY CITY -- The Hudson County tax board has rejected an attempt by a political opponent of Mayor Steve Fulop to increase the assessment -- and tax bill -- of Fulop's Ogden Avenue home.

A one-page memorandum of judgment issued by the five-member tax board on Tuesday indicates local activist April Kuzas, who filed the appeal of Fulop's assessment, did not overcome the "presumption of correctness," meaning she did not prove that the $104,000 assessment of Fulop's home is incorrect. In tax appeal cases, the burden of proof rests with the challenger.

Kuzas -- an ally of Bill Matsikoudis, the former corporation counsel challenging Fulop in November's mayoral race -- said she intends to file an appeal to the New Jersey Tax Court. New Jersey law allows third parties to file tax appeals.

"I am disappointed that the Hudson County tax board did not have the guts to determine the value of Steve Fulop's property," she said.

Asked to comment, Fulop said, "It's really pathetic and sad that Bill Matsikoudis and April are committed to running a negative campaign attacking my family. I'm going to take the high road and I'm glad that the courts decided what I said all along that my taxes are in line with every resident of Jersey City."

At a June 22 tax appeal hearing, Kuzas argued that Fulop's $104,000 assessment should be increased to $800,000. Fulop and his wife purchased the three-story, four-bedroom home in 2015 for $845,000 and their annual tax bill is $8,009. (A Jersey City homeowner with an average assessment of $100,000 pays $7,199.)

The assessments for some of Fulop's neighbors on Ogden Avenue and Palisade Avenue are similarly out of whack with their market value. Four homes in the area that have sold recently for between $825,000 and $907,000 have assessments that range from $79,000 to $160,000.

Fulop's home was last reassessed in 1991. In New Jersey, properties generally retain their assessments until a property revaluation or after renovations, which are supposed to trigger reassessments.

The mayor's critics, locally and statewide, say his tax bill illustrates the city's imbalanced tax burden, aggravated by Fulop's decision to stall the property revaluation for three years after he was elected mayor. Revals are intended to square every property's assessment on the city tax rolls with its true value.

State tax officials in April 2016 ordered the reval to proceed, saying the ratio of homes assessed at their true value was so low the city was violating state laws on fair taxation. Homeowners are expected to get their new assessments around Thanksgiving.

Matsikoudis, who has been assisting Kuzas with her tax appeal of the mayor's home, has hammered Fulop on the campaign trail for delaying the reval. In a statement emailed to The Jersey Journal about the county tax board's decision, Kuzas echoed Matsikoudis' criticism.

"Thousands of Jersey City home owners are over assessed and pay disproportionately high taxes while Fulop gets over on a (sic) artificially low tax bill, which is why a revaluation was ordered to fix the disparity," she wrote

Matsikoudis declined to comment.

Fulop's spokeswoman has previously called the tax appeal a "political circus."

JERSEY CITY -- Police are investigating a pair of shootings that left three men injured, officials said.

None of the men injured suffered life-threatening injuries, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

At about 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, a 32-year-old man was shot in the hip and wrist on Oxford Street near Bergen Avenue. He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment and was "uncooperative" with police, Morrill said.

Then on Wednesday night, two men were injured in a shooting on Lembeck Avenue near Old Bergen Road.

One of the victims brought himself to Jersey City Medical Center while the other victim was found at the Curries Woods housing complex after the shooting. Both were "uncooperative" with the investigation, Morrill said.

The shootings come on the heels of a violent weekend in Jersey City, where four men were injured in shootings and three cars were damaged.

JERSEY CITY -- Four men were injured and three cars were damaged in shootings between Thursday and Friday nights, authorities said.

The first shooting was reported at the Booker T. Washington housing complex at about 9 p.m. on Thursday. No one was injured in the shooting, but a car parked on Bright Street was damaged, police said.

Early Friday morning, a 24-year-old man was shot in the big toe near Monticello and Belmont avenues. He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center by a "passing motorist" at about 1:30 a.m., police said.

A few hours later, a 42-year-old Wegman Parkway resident was critically injured in a shooting near Bidwell and Ocean avenues at about 5:30 a.m. The suspect approached the victim and shot him in the back and leg. The 42-year-old remains hospitalized in stable condition, authorities said.

That night, shots were fired near Martin Luther King Drive and Oak Street just after 8:30 p.m. Officers patrolling the Salem Lafayette housing complex were flagged down by witnesses who said two men shot at a man who was standing near the intersection, police said. No one was injured in the shooting.

Later that night at about 11 p.m. two men, ages 25 and 28, were shot on New Hope Lane near the Curries Woods housing complex, authorities said.

The 25-year-old victim, a Merritt Street resident, suffered a nonlife-threatening injury to his arm. The 28-year-old was shot in the thigh and buttocks and was brought to Jersey City Medical Center in a private car, police said.

In the same shooting, two cars were damaged during the gunfire, police said.

No one has been arrested in connection with any of the shootings and the shootings remain under investigation.

A man was arrested this morning when police found him howling in pain inside the trash compactor of a Downtown Jersey City high-rise, a police source said.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, suffered compound fractures of both legs, the source said. At 11:30 a.m. the man was being treated in an ambulance at the scene and his screams could be heard nearby.

Just after 10 a.m. police responded to reports of a man armed with a knife attempting to break into cars along Newport Parkway in the Newport neighborhood of the city, the source said.

When the man was spotted, he fled into one of the high-rises along River Drive. The source said he had a knife when he was being chased by police officers, but when he was found, police could not locate the knife.

Police did not immediately say what charges the man will face. It could not be determined if the man injured himself by jumping in a trash chute and falling to the compactor, or if the compactor went into operation and crushed his legs.

Just curious how many people were trained as kids to sleep through noise with out it disturbing their sleep and if you have kids do you do it with them also?

I did the same thing my mom did when we were kids and my daughter can sleep through any normal city sounds with out being disturbed.

I actually remember as a kid not being able to sleep a few nights when I stayed with a relative in the suburbs for a week who tried to make us sleep in complete silence. The thing that saved me after a few sleepless nights was a Mockingbird that would mimic a car alarm in a tree near the window lol.

The Jersey Journal


JERSEY CITY - Own a car and live near Exchange Place? It's about to get tougher to find a parking space over the next two days.

With the city forced to relocate its annual July 4 Freedom and Fireworks festival on the heels of the state government shutdown, multiple street closures around Exchange Place have been announced beginning Monday afternoon. The closures will remain in effect until at least early Wednesday morning.

The annual all-day event, which features a headlining performance from Kool & The Gang this year, is normally held at Liberty State Park. The park remains closed as part of the state government shutdown after a budget failed to pass by the July 1 deadline.

City officials say more closures are possible depending on the volume of people who attend the festival, which in the past has drawn more than 100,000 people.

Here's a current list of street closures and no parking zones:

Montgomery Street - no parking between Washington Street and Exchange Place beginning at 5 p.m. Monday.

Christopher Columbus Drive - no parking between Washington Street and Exchange Place beginning at 5 p.m. Monday

Greene Street - no parking between Montgomery Street and Second Street beginning at 5 p.m. Monday.

2nd Street - no parking between Hudson Street and the Waterfront. That restriction began Monday at noon and will remain in place until 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Hudson Street - no parking between First and Second streets. That restriction began Monday at noon and will remain in place until 5 p.m. Wednesday.

In addition to road closures, Citi Bike has taken its Exchange Place location offline until Wednesday morning.

Parking around Exchange Place is expected to be tight and mass transit may be the best way to reach the festival. Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said additional officers are being added to "address the anticipated increased PATH ridership for the holiday and for the festivities."

PATH is also encouraging users to purchase their fare in advance to avoid overcrowding.

The city has also had to consolidate its live entertainment from two stages to one because of limited space. The main stage is set up directly on Exchange Place.

A beer tent will be located directly outside the PATH station with food vendors lining the streets in the direct area of Montgomery Street. Carnival rides will be located in the parking lot located on the corner of Christopher Columbus Drive and Greene Street.

A finalized map of the festival has not yet been released.

Re: 12-Year-Old Among 4 Injured in 9pm Shooting - Wilkinson Ave.

One of the victims was a 10 year old. Besides these four shot another man was shot three blocks away on Grant and MLK two hours earlier. After the second shooting police found a shot up car on Myrtle and Garfield.

After I found out about the second shooting I listened to my scanner app for a while and it seemed like a real busy night for police. They got alot of shots fired calls around the city but most turned out to be fireworks. There was a woman stabbed and cut on MLK and Fulton. Man climbing a fire escape with a gun on Van Nostrand and another man with a gun call (originally came in as a shots fired) on Van Horne and he fled into Booker T Projects. Robbery and assault on Newark and Kennedy.

I still don't see how this is better for Jersey City residents than the AEG deal that was blocked a few years ago. That deal would have led to $30 million in renovations and large national headlining acts coming to Jersey City. They were also set to have 40 community events annually.

Until Loews is fully renovated, promoters and artists will not be interested in making Jersey City a stop on their tours. Unless FOL and the city have a new plan to make that happen, I'm uninterested in whatever is going on at Loews. It is a waste of a beautiful old theatre to have nothing but sparsely attended local events and old films on the event schedule. I appreciate FOL for saving the theatre from demolition and keeping it alive to this point, but if Loews is ever going to reach its full potential, professionals will need to be involved.


Having been to the Loew's Wonder Theater in Brooklyn, which did have a (almost $100 million restoration) if this was done in JSQ you'd be looking at ticket prices that only downtown people could afford.

From what I see the price of tickets are for the comedy shows in Loews Wonder Theater online the tickets aren't unreasonably expensive compared to what I pay to see the same type of show in Newark NJPAC. It's not like the crowd is mostly Downtown types over there either. People tend to be willing to pay more for events they feel are worth it even if they aren't making a ton of money.
