JERSEY CITY -- Two people were taken away by ambulance after a shooting was reported around 2 p.m. today in the city's Journal Square neighborhood.

The victims of the shooting flagged down police at Newark Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, according to police radio transmissions. A witness working at a nearby meat market in the Little India section of Newark Avenue said the two men "were sitting in the car screaming and crying in pain."

"They took two people out of the car and put them on stretchers and they were bleeding, but not a lot," said the meat market employee who identified himself only as Steve. "They could hardly walk."

The work on the next pier up is not the same as the work that will take place on the marina pier (once the permits are issued)

THAT pier has an electic cable connecting NJ to NYC - it has something called dielectic fluid around the electrically bits and that was leaking. The actual leak was found a few weeks ago...


Is that a brand new leak? They had a big leak last year.

Battello's Closing 9/15 Until 2018 - Events Canceled
#4
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Caitlin Mota
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY - One of the state's most sought-after wedding venues is abruptly closing its doors until at least next spring.

Battello, located on the Newport waterfront, will serve its last customers on Sept. 15 for what is being described as "standard repairs" needed to be done on the pier where the restaurant is located.

On May 25, the restaurant that opened in 2014 was notified by its landlord -- Newport Marine Holdings LLC -- that certain parts of the pier were "not deemed secure" and the patio area and parking lot needed to be shut down, Batello's owner Cory Checket wrote in a letter to customers.

Checket wrote at that time that the restaurant did not have access to reports from Newport Marine Holding's engineers and said Battello would work with its customers to "accommodate and mitigate any inconvenience that this unfortunate situation has caused."

But on Thursday Battello said it was "verbally" notified by the Newport Marine Holdings that the restaurant should plan to cease operations as early as mid-September for "construction," according to a letter sent to customers from Batello's lawyer Michael Orozco.

A search for Newport Marine Holdings LLC generates no hits, including on the state's business records website. The Newport neighborhood was built and mostly owned by LeFrak.

Choc O Pain - Now Open in the Heights! Yum!

By Kristen Keller
The Jersey Journal

French bakery Choc O Pain recently opened a new location in Jersey City.

Owner Clemence Danko moved to Hoboken from France with her husband in 2009 and was disappointed with the bakery options, which sparked an interest for her to start her own bakery.

Danko attended culinary school in New York City before opening her first location in Hoboken in 2012 to bring a taste of France to the West side of the Hudson. Following the opening of that location, she brought that same taste to Jersey City on Jersey Avenue in 2013.

After almost four years, Danko has now decided to open a bakery in the Jersey City Heights at 330-332 Palisade Ave. Scroll through the gallery above for a look at the bakery's ribbon-cutting.

The Hyatt has their own valet parking area. I think the hotels by the mall have similar set ups with a proper entry/exit. A hotel that doesn't plan ahead for that when they construct a building shouldn't be located downtown. Taking away several key parking spaces from the city (and generating revenue directly on a city street) is not demonstrating good planning or good community sharing. Just my opinion.

Approved by City Council early spring 2017.


That's very useful - thank you! So if it's "no parking anytime" does that mean their valet business is illegal? It's using a tax-payer funded road, not a private piece of property, to run a revenue generating profit center. It shouldn't be allowed IMHO.

Private Business Taking Public Spaces for Valet Parking
#15
Home away from home
Home away from home


I'm just curious as this has become an issue where I live (and where parking is impossible to find). I've noticed some businesses (like the hotel across from Krispy Kreme) reserving public parking spaces with free standing signs for their valet parking. A business where I live has taken two spots on our street and is doing the same (they have a nearby garage and a loading zone so they're really taking advantage IMHO).

Are there any laws prohibiting a private enterprise from using a public street to generate revenue and use spaces exclusively for their business?

This is an excerpt from an email from Sam Pesin this morning:

Dear Liberty State Park supporters,

Many of you have already heard about the shameful abomination that LSP (and all of state government) is closed until Governor and legislature ends budget deadlock. June 30th at midnight was their fiscal year deadline, If there's no solution before July 4, Jersey City's Freedom and Fireworks Festival with food vendors, carnival and bands including Kool and the Gang will happen at Exchange Place (near PATH and light rail stops). The ferry service to Lady Liberty and Ellis Island won't operate. Liberty House Restaurant and Maritime Parc restaurants will be open.

Please go to the top of the Friend's home page to click to follow us on social media.

We'll post an update on the Friends facebook page when we find out about the park re-opening.

Does anyone use a water leak alarm to notify them of potential leaks under sinks, near washers and water heaters? There seems to be really cheap ones on the market and more expensive models connected to your phone. Do they work? Thanks in advance for any advice.

As for the dragging, I'm not sure if they were afraid the car was going to further explode or what their motivations were. Not defending anyone, I just don't know if the cops were acting over the top or just following SOP when they thought the injured guy was their suspect?
