ugh - I hate lawsuits like that. Seriously, how can MSG be responsible. What if he smuggled in some liquor or had 6 beers before he even got to the game. Now they're gonna stop serving beer after the first timeout. Way to ruin it for the rest of us.

I'm selling several 1 bed condos at the moment for $300-$350 each.

I see no sign of any downturn in this price range. Lots of first time buyers willing to put 20% down. Getting 3-4 hits a day.

"In contract" deals were up by 28% in the last quarter of 2007.

Its a simple decision - get most of your money back at tax filing time - or continue paying stupid money in rent, with no deductible.

We're in a micro climate here, next to Manhattan - so waiting for prices in JC to drop is kinda futile. However, for those people interested in moving to the burbs - the prices will get a little lower.


Agreed. There is so much more this area has to offer than it did in the past. All of these new restaurants, bars, and retail stores are worth something no matter how sensationalistic you want to get. There's no denying that the economy sucks right now, but some areas are always going to do better than others. This area is one of those b/c it is improving every day. You can't walk around and not notice that. Like groovejet said, the rent vs. buy equation is still pretty close in that $300-$350 range.

I sold my condo at a little more than 10% profit after only holding it for 2 years last month. You are an idiot - the market here is a little slow, but people are still making money. I am living, breathing proof of that.

I really do wonder if thinking like Tankstelle's isn't behind both Bloomberg's NYC "congestion charge" idea and Corzine's wanting to increase the tolls. In our new gilded age it must piss off multi-millionaires like Bloomberg and Corzine when they have to sit in traffic like everyone else. Of course, Corzine also had a pretty bad experience crashing when his detail was irresponsibly speeding to get to that all important Imus meeting...


There's a lot of humor and truth in that statement. Corzine gets to appease car nazis like GP and not get stuck in traffic on the Parkway. That's a win-win.

Also, I'm curious if roads really are subsidized after you account for the gas tax. Anybody have any info on this?

Great, what a waste of new toll money -- I thought the point was to stop all this excessive driving in SUV's to and from McMansions -- not to build more roads for these long distance commuters.

This sounds like a really good argument to raise the state income tax -- talk about being fair -- spread the hurt evenly!

Again what Corzine really needs to make happen is some major consolidation of the 566 municipalities and their redundant services.


Why the he!! would you advocate them to raise our income tax when we have drug dealers getting $50k a year in government jobs? Once the govt. cleans its house, then it can come knocking on my door.

And as far as widening the turnpike, the traffic is on the weekends. This is not commuter traffic. It is people on vacation and people visiting friends and family that live South of here. You are advocating that we cripple our tourism industry and inhibit the ability of people to move to a different city (away from their families) for a good job. Both options are horrible for our economy. I think you really either want to raise the gas tax or enforce more stringent CAFE laws. There is no reason to blindly oppose any proposal that involves cars.

I've been a victim of the boot as well. I think it's complete crap. Isn't the $42 ticket enough to discourage commuters? The f-ing ticket is like $150 now with the boot.

I'd really like to see them widen the turnpike in exchange for this toll increase for exits 1-9. Don't know if that is in the plan. The weekend traffic during the summer makes me want to kill myself sometimes.

My initial reaction was pretty ticked b/c I know that there is so much waste in the government and Corzine is very tax happy. On the other hand, after seeing all of the comments about auxiliary roads getting more crowded I like the idea. Let all of the poor peoply get to work at 25mph, while all the BMW's and Audi's get to go 70-80 mph. That's fine with me and I'll pay extra for the privelege. It sucks if your poor though.

Although I support this law, it would cause a lot of pain for a lot of small business owners. I don't buy the enforcement argument though. In all of the liquor stores in JC, I see 15 year olds go inside all the time to buy candy or soda or whatever.

I checked it out on Saturday for the first time. I really like the vibe, the food was solid, and $5 for a Fullers is a pretty good deal. It p*sses me off to read all of the negative buzz on this place. I would have put up with a lot worse than I received to support a decent bar on Newark.

While I respect your opinion the point still is that I, like many residents, do have a car and I am not looking to get rid of it or relocate. I also understand some of the folks parking here are residents who do not have permits. This one shocks me because it is not difficult at all to acquire a permit. And, once you have it, you can renew it through the mail. So to me that excuse falls flat as well.


This is bullshi*t. I've lived here 3 1/2 years and pay a ton of taxes, but for some reason I'm not allowed to get a resident parking permit b/c I drive a company car and it's registered in Bergen County. Mothereffers, I hope you all rot in he!!.

Agreed, as an owner, judging by my building in downtown, the market is at the same level as last year at this time. That's actually good performance compared to the overall market, so let's hope when things turn around we will all be golden.

We discussed at the caucus this wouldn?t apply to small quantities of drugs like marijuana (this was discussed) nor first offenders on prostitution however, there are instances when it would work and I believe addressing the demand side of the equation and not only the supply side can have results to help quality of life crimes.

There are 85 posts on this thread so I guess answering each one is not possible but I thought in fairness I prob should write something on the the assumptions that seemed most common.

Steven Fulop


Steve, I respect what you are doing a ton. Thank god someone is calling out all of the crooks in our local government. I agree that the selling of hard drugs like heroin and crack are no good for the community. Unfortunately, the buyers are addicts that need help. When an addict is caught, you can either point them in the right direction and show them hope, or you can take even more from them and give them more hopelessness. In that context, which do you really think is most effective? These folks need a helping hand.

Another point - if marijuana is not a part of this plan. You need to make this abundantly clear and stress to the JJ reporters that the exclusion of m/j is an important part of your plan that voters need to aware of. Given your position, you are probably unaware of an affluent and educated portion of your voters that care a tremendous amount about this issue. Get aware.

More importantly, if you don't think marijuana is destructive enough to warrant inclusion into this bill, then why are the selling/distribution laws in this city so stringent?

As for prostitution, the shame method is proven effective. PROVEN. Why risk the chance that you will hurt innocent, unwilling members of their family?
