No, I'm very serious here. Just observe some of the posts on this forum, all that is missing are the pitchforks. I mean, what are they going to do, try and get the crossing guard lady fired? I mean, I don't care, yeah, it's annoying but seriously pointing her out that way? It sucks! I mean, do these people understand the real life ramifications that their petty grievances can have on real people's lives and jobs? Leave people alone. Get a life. Stop complaining and yeah, stop trying to make our goddamn city a suburb. PLEASE!

You folks are a little Stepford Wives, a little Children of the Corn, a little Night of the Living Dead. So, creepy to think you are all constantly peering out your windows and criticizing anything and everything you can find when your meds wear off and you start twitching at the sound of a crossing guard whistle. You know, it's not about gentrification necessarily or is it? I don't know what it is. The cool people are moving out because they have no choice. The haters are moving in, that's just the way it goes. I think it really sucks too that you are criticizing blue collar workers and teachers? Only an ignorant ass says something like this? Do you have children? (probably not, I imagine you are probably unmarried, childless and balding.) Are you planning to home school them? I think it says a lot about the people who post on this forum, they just don't have the guts to say these things in the streets, out loud. Now I clearly see that these voices are becoming the majority in our town. Last but not least, the audacity and hypocrisy of you saying that the crossing guard is having a power trip????? You must be kidding. GET A LIFE.

Whistle chirps? WTF? You must be kidding? I can't believe it, the stereotype is completely true. What do you folks do all day, creep by your windows, take anti-anxiety medication, and twitch at the sound of the whistle chirps? So sad. . lol!!!!!!!

"It is the ironic take on a beard.\" I wish you would take your ironic beard back to Alpine."

You are officially #OOPS#ing awesome. That's the best thing I ever heard anyone say on this forum. Things have changed a lot, it's true, some for the better but not all for the better.
I also think guys who rock beards, who are not Russian professors from the 19th Century are lame. be well.

If you think DK meant that it was "those Puerto Ricans" causing trouble again, you're dead wrong. Anyone with half a brain is afraid to walk past that park at night, regardless of what race/culture the people hanging out there are. I think you need to read up on your sociology, young son.
Maybe it was an angry jerk like yourself who did it. First of all YOU are the moron. This isn't about race. Blog City Blog never mentioned Puerto Ricans, YOU did. You're the one with racial spite, veiled under some other guise. There is a LOT of that on this forum, a lot of really angry people who all seem to think that the world owes them something. Wake up folks! Noone, ANYWHERE should walk through a park late at night. It's just common sense. Clearly, the shooting on Wayne St. is related to drug dealing. Try resolving that issue first. And "Downtown Steve", you are a jack ass.

I haven't had my bike stolen but I did have my front tire slashed just yesterday. The slash had to be at least 2 feet long. It happened on Steuben St right near the Path station, however my observation has been that on Newark ave right by Jersey Ave for at least 10 months someone has been selling used bikes for really cheap.
I've noticed that at times it's 1 bike sometimes 3 or 4 on 2 different corners locked with a makeshift sign with a price and phone number.
What I find odd is that I'm always seeing different bikes and some have been covered or disguised with reflective tape. I can't help but wonder if these bikes are stolen. I see too many differentt ones all the time except for lately. I'm guessing that it's due to all of the sidewalk construction and police presence in that area.


So, what does one do about notifying the authorities about the shifty business happening on Steuben and Jersey Avenues anyway? It isn't any wonder it's that blatant, hell, it certainly isn't very hard to trace how car's get stolen around here either. They stole my shitty 95 Saturn three times. I also don't think they travel very far to turn them over. It pretty much happens before our eyes, goes on and on.. .
but if someone were to steal my bike. .
i would lose it. there would be hell to pay. . . giving up my car was the best thing i ever did. Jersey City can't get my money anymore, well at least not on my car!!

it is also scary as hell to ride your bike around town. . it takes it up a notch . that intersection feels always like a death trap. . I saw a little boy get hit by a car around Christmas last year, he was not seriously hurt from what it seemed . i wonder if there is any news about that anywhere. It's horrible and the aggression needs to stop otherwise, i think we should starting thinking about how the hell to reduce automobile traffic in the downtown Jersey City area.

Though this suggestion may require you to compromise a little and venture out of Hudson County, I think that Newark is in fact a good place to explore. I used to have a 2700 square foot loft downtown, isolated from everything and we would put on shows every once in a while without any disturbances. There is 24 hour public transportation downtown and it's gotten safer, though it's not great, but that's pretty much the story of where historically, we have always gone to check out rock or hardcore music shows, especially when we were underage, whether here or in Brooklyn. It was always in remote and nearly abandoned neighborhoods. PM me if you would like some assistance exploring other possibilities outside of JC.

NO, most people don't want another construction site up in their neighborhood, most people aren't money hungry, shady developers, most people like the idea of working together to make a beautiful park with an awesome view of the city, which will create green space and add something truly unique to their city. Most people are tired of ugly, utterly boring developments that contribute nothing, absolutely nothing unique to our community.

Hey NewHeights, I'm laughing so hard. Your mom should definitely slap you a couple of more times cause I really don't think she would appreciate your language, fakeness, bad grammar, lack of manners and lack of culture. It would behoove you to understand that you're the one with hate, not me. BTW: if you want to arrange a date I will happily put my armpits in your face.

Let me start out by saying that I am the farthest thing from a yuppie. I will admit it can be a little much in hoboken......

I think the hate being portrayed on this board is more about the haves vs the have nots. worry about yourselves. Stop whining. I have liberal and conservative friends living in Hoboken. Some are musicians, artists and others are in corporate.its not all one type.

Do me a favor grab a beer on a sunny friday outside texas arizona and tell me how the women look that get off the path train. maybe thats just it ! Cant score the hot chicks? or maybe your one of those angry chicks that doesnt shave her arm pits?



Okay, my sincere apology to the person who started this thread because I'm going totally off-topic but this is my last post, promise. NewHeights, I think your parents should have smacked you just a little bit more when you were a whining, screaming, ugly baby annoying patrons at restaurants. I would have been the well-behaved girl next to you laughing at your obvious shortcomings. But really, is this what you do with your spare time, lecherously check-out women who get off the Hoboken PATH from a PIZZA place? Oh man. It's too easy. Your comeback was lame and worse your grammar sucks!! Besides that, you just convinced me that on top of all your shortcomings (boring, ignorant, lecherous) you are also sexist. When I see some fat ugly guy sitting at Texas Arizona, lecherously checking out the babes that get off the PATH, I'll be sure to call the cops-lamo. (BTW: I know some beautiful lesbians and hairy ones too that would happily kick your ass, just let me know and I'll arrange it).
Now, this thread was about taxes in Hoboken. You should all get back to it and sorry for going off thread. As for platitudes about getting along, I'm all for it, but you know what I've noticed lately, racism is like okay on the JC List. It seems it's not okay to say "frat boy" but it is okay to use words like "primitive" to refer to people that live on MLK and Montgomery. What's up with that? Heights, I think most people know you are ignorant and the selection of your primary source couldn't be more indicative of this. Please stop making stupid comments about things you haven't the slightest clue about. I mean really, I chuckled the other day: "Spaniards are Caucasians". You are a moron. Try and check out a history book every once in a while instead of Metro and check out what happened in Spain, um, let's see from 800-1492. You are a moron and so is anyone else that condones such blatant racism on this site. Peace

I agree with you 100%. . . about the artsy posse, of which I'm not affiliated with (this or any posse). As for your MLK/Montgomery Gardens comment, well I think that speaks for itself as what it blatantly is. Do YOU live on MLK blvd, my guess is probably not. Why don't you try and help those communities instead of condemning them.

That's actually a good idea you have about the JC sucks shirts, we can start turf wars and battle off, West Side story like. . . I'm with the Sharks. Aside from that I think you should get out more and enjoy the sunny day.

My father was just telling me today how he used to play in a band in Hoboken in the 70s when it was just a working class town with working class problems. He was saying how crazy it was when the transition in Soho began and then subsequently Hoboken began 20 + years of a gentrification process. He says there was a big controversy when one of the rent controlled buildings which was being fought over by developers went up in flames one night. Three or four people died. He's going to help me find the article. As for whether I would wear the shirt, of course I would wear the shirt! Frankly, I'm not scared of drunk fraternity boys. It's not personal, it's just that Hoboken kind of does suck. I used to work there when I was a kid in highschool and I had friends that lived there, really cool people. But now, what is it but a bunch of sports bars with people who mostly all act alike. It's totally congested. I don't want to live in a town like that. Whatever happened to the Monroe Arts Center, if it's still there, kudos for them. . .

it's funny to me that no one has responded to my posting about the hate crime. I'm NOT kidding, someone wrote "jew" in big, red, drippy letters all over my neighbors brownstone! I know someone must have seen this as it was around 4:30pm, between Jersey and Varick. As I said before, they quickly took it down and painted over it. I felt so bad for the poor mom who lives there having to wash that out and paint over her house. What an atrocious act.
I'm just super pissed that I didn't catch these little louses or WHOEVER myself because I assure you they would have received a total ass whoopin from me in front of everyone had I seen them. I didn't see it this morning so it had to have been done in the afternoon!!!
I agree, I do need to get the hell out of here.

It's disgusting. I couldn't believe it with my own eyes but sure enough someone spray-painted "jew" all over my neighbors house!!! yes, here in jersey city! i've lived here all my life and have never seen such a thing!! that's an incident-something that needs to be reported. i know someone must have seen it on there way home from work. I told my neighbors and they were all in shock when they saw it. The victims (who aren't Jewish by the way-fyi to the retards who did this) quickly cleaned up the vandalism. It's awful.
Amy-I really don't care about the fact that you just discovered that there are homeless people in the world. I'm going to Barcelona tomorrow. You can keep your tiny world.

I would go around talking pictures of all of you in your polo shirts and khaki pants, equally as offensive, if not criminally dull, but I don't think I'd have the time or memory to store it in my camera.

I have also noticed that the tone of the postings have gotten so annoyingly and self-consciously ironic that it can only indicate that it has been overrun by the same boring, lamo constituents that have taken over this town!!!

Can you all PLEASE go back to where you came from, Wichita, Wayne or what have you? And leave the Pimp alone. He's much more interesting to look at then the lot of you!!

Ok, this sounds exactly like this guy who we used to call the NA flasher when I was in high school cause he first was reported in North Arlington. He was a total freak who would stalk high school girls and younger girls around Hudson County. I think he actually got caught and did time for a while. He was originally from Union City and was Hispanic.

It would sound about right that he's out now. I swear the more I read these threads re: crime in the area, the more I am convinced to get some mace or pepper spray and just mace somebody right in the eyes if they try something like that.

The problem is these types of things sometimes escalate into more serious crimes. I know that the flasher dude actually tried to kidnap a girl once.

I noted in my posting that there is a discrepancy with these tickets and so need to speak to someone in person, preferably over the phone. There is no doubt in my mind that a city agency that run this way IS corrupt. At some point, those two terms are synonymous to me.

Jersey City Municipal Court sucks!!!
#29
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I have to admit that I am guilty of keeping up with alternate side of the street parking. I would like to say that due to my hectic schedule and late-night returns from Manhattan that it's understandable that I've made some mistakes--however, I make no excuses for myself, and as a dutiful citizen attempted to resolve the problem.

I think I had a total of (2) outstanding tickets in the last three months. I recently moved and was not receiving all my mail on time. Last week I received a letter postdated from Motor Vehicles to my new home advising me that my license was suspended as a result of said outstanding tickets. Now, the point of my story isn't that I'm forgetful, or that the city is rockin'-in some revenue as a result. . . it's regarding the utter incompetence of the Jersey City Municipal Court in responding to my attempt to pay for these tickets. As my license is suspended I don't want to drive to their shady Summit Ave. office just to stand on line for an hour, or be redirected a hundred times to a different person, all the while having to witness the spectacle of gangsters sending their friends to pay for their bails.

Therefore, I tried to call in order to get the appropriate ticket numbers as I don't have them anymore, but NOONE EVER PICKS-UP THE PHONE. EVER!! DURING THEIR REGULAR WORKING HOURS OF OPERATION BECAUSE THEY ARE SO COMPLETELY OUTRIGHT CORRUPT !!!

Because I failed once before with my parking problems I had the hellish experience of having to go there as my penitence once before. (Yes, Jersey City Municipal Court, having to go and experience your corrupt city bureaucracy is the truest form of hell for me!)

Their working hours are supposedly from 9am-5pm, you better believe that if you call at 3:45pm, NOONE will pick up the phone. What kind of system is this exactly? Is there no oversight? Is this really how our city funds are really being spent?? I have even GONE there in PERSON at 4pm, prior to that day's designated 5pm closing and have been told that the employees left early!!! You know, I don't think these are freelance jobs, where people can just come and go at their leisure. .

I intend to file a pretty major complaint after this rant. I encourage others who have had similar experiences do the same.
