JERSEY CITY - A second teenager has died after being hit by a car in the Heights Wednesday afternoon and now police need help finding the driver, who has previously been identified as one of the city's "most violent" gang members.

Rashaun Bell, 20, is wanted for the deaths of Elionel Jimenez, 15, and a 16-year-old boy who was identified by school officials Alexander Rosas-Flores, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced.

Both boys were riding on the same bicycle at about 2:30 p.m. near Terrace Avenue and Leonard Street when they were struck by a gold Nissan Maxima allegedly driven by Bell. The 20-year-old and his three passengers left the car a few blocks away and fled on foot, Suarez said.

A 15-year-old boy is dead and another teenager has life-threatening injuries after they were struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run in Jersey City this afternoon, authorities said.

The crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. in the area where Leonard Street and Terrace Avenue converge with the Route 1&9 North ramp to Secaucus road. Police have stopped a vehicle on Secaucus Road in connection with the crash, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

The juvenile who survived was thrown over an 8-foot fence and down 30 feet to the northbound lanes of Route 1&9, a source with knowledge of the investigation said.

JERSEY CITY -- County officials are warning residents, especially seniors, about telephone scams involving a person posing as a law enforcement officer saying they face arrest if they do not pay immediately.

Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari said his office has received complaints from people saying they were contacted by someone claiming to be a police deputy who says they face arrest for failing to report for jury duty or outstanding warrants unless they pay over the phone.

I don't think this is said enough: thank you for always being thoughtful and respectful with your posts and by helping spread the word about things like this.


Awww - thank you! I've received these calls and these scammers can be very intimidating. I remember this older man in the Heights got cleaned out by a door-to-door team some years back. It just broke my heart.

Heat Ordinance for Jersey City Renters

Home away from home


As the weather turns colder, thought I'd remind tenants (and landlords) of the Jersey City regulations for providing heat - which began on October 1st;

JC Heat Ordinance

Don't have heat? Complain! Don't let your landlord keep you in the cold.

24 hour emergency heat & hot water hotline: (201) 547-4825 OR (201) 547-4821

Just as others have mentioned, this board is full of of anti-rent control property owner's in downtown that resent the laws that have made turning a profit more difficult.

Don't let people on here scare you, you have received the proper advice. Huddle up with your neighbors and hire one lawyer to handle the tenant case for you. Prepare for a lot of discomfort. These new owners will do the following:
Try to get you removed for non-payment. Put the money in a separate account, if you receive a court notice cancel those previous rent checks and be ready the day of court to pay the entire amount of unpaid rent and bring keep copies of everything! Any communication, any documentation, cancelled checks, they want you to make any mistake. A single mistake can lead to eviction.

They will try to make your living situation hell. Non-repairs, some will actually try to make your living situation dangerous. With winter approaching be prepared for them to shut off heat to the building, maybe even conveniently you will lose power or hot water. You and all other tenants need to aggressively report these situation to the housing department. Contact your ward councilperson and get them let them what is happening. http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/citycouncil.aspx

Report the issues to everyone with ears and even reach out to local news media with documentation.

Despite popular belief on here, you are just leveraging existing law to enjoy a sustainable lifestyle. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.



I was thinking of the heating issue also - since colder weather is approaching. Print this out and provide it to your neighbors - and CALL/KEEP RECORDS OF COMPLAINTS - don't let this go.

Also, this is a really good primer for your rights as a renter.

In my experience, the local court system is really responsive to, and sensitive of, tenants that are getting screwed by landlords. The key is really good record keeping and non-emotional presentations to the court. Keep it to the facts, have your records and evidence, and be organized - you will prevail.

Re: Eliu Rivera Passed Away Today

The Jersey Journal

Eliu Rivera, a former Hudson County Freeholder and leader in the local Puerto Rican community, died over the weekend.

Rivera, who once headed the Jersey City-based nonprofit Puertorriquenos Asociados for Community Organization (PACO), was 74. People close to him said he died in a hospital in Puerto Rico, where he was living with the long-term effects of a chemical he unintentionally inhaled in 2011.

"This is a devastating loss for PACO and the many people he served in Jersey City and all throughout Hudson County," PACO executive director Julio Garcia said in a statement.

...While he did not have specific details of Rivera's death, (John) Carpena said there was "no question" the wide devastation Puerto Rico sustained from Hurricane Maria played a role in Rivera's death.

Eliu Rivera Passed Away Today
#11
Home away from home
Home away from home


Nothing in the news yet - there was word on Councilman Rivera's Facebook tonight. RIP Eliu.

Eliu Rivera was born in Aibonito, Puerto Rico in the 1940s and migrated to Jersey City, New Jersey with his family during his early teenage years. After graduating from high school, he spent time working for the Post Office and in the ports around New York Harbor. During the Longshoremen's strike, Mr. Rivera was introduced to a number of community activists in Jersey City, where they discussed the need for an organization devoted to serving the needs of the Latino community. After conducting a survey of Jersey City residents to identify the greatest areas of need, the organization P.A.C.O. (Puertorriqueños Asociados for Community Organization, Inc.) was founded, with its initial areas of concern being the need for affordable housing and bilingual services for the community. Since its founding in 1970, P.A.C.O. has branched out into many other community services. Mr. Rivera has served the community through P.A.C.O. since 1970 and is currently its Executive Director. He has also served the community politically as Deputy Mayor of Jersey City and Chairman of the Hudson County, New Jersey Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Three left lanes on Route 139 westbound, just past Jersey Avenue, will be closed for emergency bridge repairs following a fire under the structure last night, New Jersey Department of Transportation officials said.

Route 139 westbound was shut down last night at approximately 7:45 p.m. because of a fire under the bridge near Cole Street that forced officials to redirect traffic away from the westbound Holland Tunnel.

Structural engineers evaluated the bridge overnight and determined two right lanes could be reopened, but the department is doing additional evaluations today to determine the extent of damage.

The three left lanes will be closed until further notice, officials said.

Route 139 eastbound toward downtown Jersey City and the Holland Tunnel will not be affected, officials added. The Holland Tunnel into New Jersey remains open, but delays are expected.

Drivers will still be able to access the ramp to the New Jersey Turnpike Extension to I-78, officials said.

I'll report back if we go that route. Hopefully they will just make payments without dragging it out, but I doubt it considering what's been going on.

If I remember correctly, the Hudson County Sheriff renders garnishments? Not sure - read on:

Re: Hurricane Jose: Rain And Storm Surge Could affect us next Tues &Wed

Home away from home



NOAA Update on Jose:

KEY MESSAGES:

1. While the center of Jose is currently forecast to remain offshore
of the U.S. coast, the large cyclone could cause some direct impacts
from Delaware northward to New England, and any deviation to the
left of the NHC forecast track would increase the likelihood and
magnitude of those impacts. A Tropical Storm Watch is now in
effect from the Delaware coast to southeastern Massachusetts.
Interests elsewhere along the U.S. east coast from North
Carolina to New England should monitor the progress of Jose
through the next several days.

2. Minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible from Delaware
to southern New England during the next several days. Please see
products issued by local National Weather Service forecast offices.

3. Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas,
and much of the U.S. east coast. These swells are likely to cause
dangerous surf and rip current conditions for the next several days
in these areas.

4. Jose will produce heavy rain as it passes near southern New
England and the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday and Wednesday. Total
accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected over eastern Long
Island, southeast Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeast
Massachusetts, including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Based on
the current forecast, the risk of flooding will be limited in scope.
Any deviation to the left of the forecast track, however, could
bring heavier and more widespread rainfall to southern New England,
Long Island, New York City, and New Jersey. If this deviation were
to occur, the risk of urban flash flooding and some river flooding
would increase.

NHC Notes: While the center of Jose is currently forecast to remain offshore
of the U.S. coast, the large cyclone could cause some direct impacts from Virginia northward to New England, and any deviation to the left of the NHC forecast track would increase the likelihood and magnitude of those impacts. Interests along the U.S. east coast from Virginia to New England should monitor the progress of Jose through the next several days. Tropical storm watches could be required for a portion of this area later today.

Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas,
and much of the U.S. east coast. These swells are likely to cause
dangerous surf and rip current conditions for the next several days in these areas.

Amazon - search "gas can." But remember to store/vent carefully! And don't run generators indoors!

He did great in Jc when it was the only show in town. But I guess just couldn't keep up with all the other great paces opening up there. like cellar 335 that are being run by experienced hospitality people.


Pretty shitty of you to come on to a public board as a newbie and air someone's alleged substance issue (if it even exists). Have some compassion and discretion.

Massive Equifax Hack Announced Today
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


Hackers may have the names and social security numbers of 143 million Americans after a massive breach of credit-reporting agency Equifax, the company said Thursday.

That’s more than half of the nation’s adult population, according to census figures.

Hackers also trawled through birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers, as well as 209,000 credit card numbers, during a massive breach between mid-May and July 29, the company reported.

“I deeply regret this incident and I apologize every affected consumer and all of our partners,” CEO Richard Smith said.

The hackers “exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access,” a company statement said.

Upon discovering the massive breach, Equifax hired a “leading, independent cybersecurity firm” to review the attack and recommend ways to prevent future attacks, the company said.

Equifax is offering every U.S. consumer in the country free identity-theft protection and credit-file monitoring through the website www.equifaxsecurity2017.com — regardless whether their information was compromised, Smith said.
