Is there a phone alert that we can sign up for - which doesn't go off everytime there's a custody dispute or a false child abduction.

Just get all bikes & scotters off the sidewalks - they are very dangerous to pedestrians.

Kearny chemical fire update: Blaze still burning, Pulaski Skyway closed, residents told to stay inside

Updated 8:46 AM; Today 8:13 AM
By Len Melisurgo | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A large fire at a chlorine chemical plant in Hudson County continues to burn Saturday morning and although it is under control, authorities have kept the Pulaski Skyway closed in both directions and continue to urge local residents to remain indoors because of the potential danger from chemical fumes.

Chemical plant fire closes portion of Pulaski Skyway, residents asked to remain indoors

Updated 8:32 AM; Posted May 17, 11:23 PM


By Chris Sheldon | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A fire at a large chlorine plant in Kearny Friday night shut down a portion of the Pulaski Skyway in the area and prompted officials to warn residents to remain indoors because of the smoke and fumes the blaze created.

The plant, known as Alden Leads, is located on Jacobus Avenue, almost directly underneath the Pulaski Skyway.

Kearny residents were asked by local fire officials to stay indoors with their windows windows closed, because the smoke could cause “severe respiratory distress.”

Kearny chemical fire update: Blaze still burning, Pulaski Skyway closed, residents told to stay inside

Residents in nearby towns in northern New Jersey and as far as Staten Island, N.Y., were warned that they might see or smell smoke as a result of the fire. The Bayonne Office of Emergency Management and the city of Hoboken warned residents there to close their windows because of the smoke generated by the fire.

Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said in a Facebook post shortly after midnight that the fire “may be sending fumes into parts of Newark” and that people in the area should keep their windows and doors shut and stay inside.


The Pulaski Skyway was closed in both directions between South Kearny and Broadway as of 12 a.m., News 12 New Jersey reported. Video from the scene showed that cars were stranded on the highway as the smoke caused severe visibility problems on the bridge.


Emergency responders were helping the drivers stuck on the highway to safety, according to ABC.

The fire was still not under control as of 12:20 a.m. Saturday morning.

It was unclear if anybody was injured in the blaze or how it started.

UPDATE: As of 7:15 a.m. Saturday, the Pulaski Skyway remains closed in both directions, and firefighters are still at the chemical company. It was not immediately known if the fire has been extinguished

They need to increase DUI stings Friday & Saturday night downtown - with all the bars it is an obvious problem - perhaps a good place to start is Newark Ave as it heads up the hill.

I used to live on Monmouth on the other side of Old Colony Mall. I still take my kids to P.S. 3. I go shopping at Ranch 99 and have the occasional craving for Popeyes or a donut from Dunkin Donuts. A while back I used the auto body shop to fix a banged up car for a few hundred bucks that the insurance company insisted was totalled. Point being that I've been around there and still have occasion to go there.

Sure you could spruce up those few blocks and build some townhouses or apartments, but is the city really hurting because they haven't done so yet? If the current landowners are really squatting or speculating that's one thing, but if it's just a question of waiting a couple of years, or maybe building a little smaller, then why give a developer the power of eminent domain at the expense of current owners, residents, and business owners?


I agree with you - "why give a developer the power of eminent domain at the expense of current owners, residents, and business owners?" This is another land grab.

Staten Island or Coney Island: What’s the Better Beach Getaway?

Mary Jane Weedman

The Staten Island beaches — like South Beach, pictured here — have an undersung excellence.

Resized Image


Where’s better to enjoy a baseball-and-beach mini-vacation: Staten Island or Coney Island? Comparing two spontaneous, overlooked, and excellent weekend-getaway trips that you can do with a Zipcar rental and a camping tent.

Staten Island
The Beaches
Much of Staten Island’s eastern coast was, of course, slammed by Hurricane Sandy. But the island has since recovered and is even working to prep its beaches for a future disaster. Lynda Ricciardone, the Staten Island Parks borough commissioner, broke down the beaches’ personalities and features for us.

South Beach: If Staten has a beach-with-a-capital-B, it’s this one, probably the most crowded, and the one that many Staten Island kids grew up going to. (As did their parents and grandparents: In the ’50s, it was a bungalow-filled beach colony.) It’s the best beach for Instagrammable shots of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, and there’s a boardwalk with a bike path that overlooks the water — the promenade length from South to Midland Beach is 2.1 miles. You can rent a bike ($12 per hour) at Wheel Fun Rentals, which also offers umbrellas and chairs for $8 a day. “We get a lot of folks who don’t want to go to the crowded beaches in Brooklyn,” says Ricciardone, so there’s often lots of day-trippers sunbathing and mingling with locals. If you’re here on Wednesday, come by for fireworks and other entertainment starting at dusk.

Midland Beach: Seaview Avenue, near Father Capodanno Boulevard, is the divider between Midland and South Beach, and that’s near where you’ll find the Ocean Breeze fishing pier (for fishing tips, check out our guide to urban angling). At both beaches, there are recreation areas — bocce, horseshoes, volleyball — but Midland distinguishes itself with more parking. Of course, there’s the Sea Turtle Fountain, a water feature popular with kids, and at the south end of Midland is a barbecuing area. (You need to get a permit for groups of 20 or more, though that doesn’t mean you have a reserved space — send someone early to stake your claim.) Back to the Beach — a festival with concerts, vendors, fireworks, and the like — is at Midland Beach and will be held July 22 and 23 this year.

Cedar Grove and Great Kills Park: Unlike at South Beach, as you move farther south, you’ll need to come prepared with food, beverages, bikes, and beach umbrellas, says Ricciardone. Cedar Grove (which was made public in 2011 and had been one of the last beach colonies in New York) is a local-frequented beach: Ricciardone notes that it’s not off a main thoroughfare and has only a small parking lot and a couple of lifeguard chairs. Still, she says, “it’s a beautiful beach — it’s bucolic, the sand is beautiful. It’s a really nice getaway. But whatever you’re doing, you’re bringing in for the day” — so come with your cooler packed and umbrellas ready. “We have a comfort-station trailer there,” she adds, “but you’re not going there and riding your bike. If you’re looking to go by yourself and grab a book and sit out on a beach,” it’s perfect.

Wolfe’s Pond: This relaxed park and beach area is on the South Shore — at Cornelia and Hylan Boulevard — so it’s less crowded with down-for-the-day beach fiends, but there are barbecue and playground areas, an adult exercise area, an outdoor hockey rink, a dog run, and plenty of parking. It’s a small beach, Ricciardone acknowledges (but one with a fascinating history). “People might go to barbecue, and the beach is part of that experience. It’s probably rare that people go just for the beach, but it has beautiful views,” she says. P.S.: A few miles south of here, Kayak Staten Island provides free kayaking trips on Sundays.

The mile-and-a-half stadium, which would include seating for over 10,000 people, would be located where a cluster of industrial properties sit east of the New Jersey Turnpike toll booth. The properties are surrounded by the park but are not owned by the state.

It kind of was in articles like those in the Philly Inquirer

“It gets portrayed as gang members shooting gang members. Drug dealers shooting drug dealers. Black-on-black crime. That’s how it’s going to be and it’s going to die down in two or three days,” he said. “This is our Parkland. This is our Columbine. [Black communities] don’t have mass shootings in schools. They have them at clubs and gatherings.”

As a teenager, Snoop frequently ran into trouble with the law. He was a member of the Rollin' 20 Crips gang in the Eastside area of Long Beach, although he stated in 1993 that he never joined a gang. Shortly after graduating from high school, he was arrested for possession of cocaine, and for the next three years was frequently in and out of prison (including Wayside Jail).

I see there was a fire up Newark Ave (629 - 631 Newark Avenue -- a pair of attached three-story buildings that house a meat market and a Domino's pizza) -- But the fire trucks are also on Newark between 3rd & 4th Street - what is going on there? That is many blocks away from the other area.

Re: SINATRA SWINGS AGAIN! 2018 SINATRA IDOL CONTEST, JUNE 14

http://www.cityofjerseycity.org/sinatra.shtml

Frank Sinatra might have been born in Hoboken, but as soon as he was old enough to know better, he moved to Jersey City!

Among the highlights of Sinatra's life in Jersey City are:
The singer and Nancy Barbato of Jersey City were married here in Our Lady of Sorrows Church.

The newlyweds resided in an apartment at 137 Bergen Avenue.

Resized Image


HERE THEY ARE ON NEWARK AVE.

Their first two children – Nancy and Frank Jr. – were born at Margaret Hague Hospital in Jersey City.

Sinatra's first stint as a radio singer was on the local station (WAAT) in Late 1936, a 15-minute show for which he earned 75 cents.

Sinatra reportedly decided on a career as a singer after seeing Bing Crosby in a movie at the Loew's Theater here. Not long after that he won a singing contest at the recently-demolished State Theater. It was from Jersey City that Sinatra commuted to the Rustic Cabin in Englewood. The rest is history.
