Home away from home


Jersey City Police are investigating two pedestrian strikes that occurred at separate locations in the city on Saturday afternoon.

According to police, the first incident happened at approximately 2:45 p.m. in the area of Congress Street and Sherman Avenue.

Officials say emergency responders found a male -around the age of 24- suffering injuries after a beige Nissan Pathfinder struck him then sped away from the scene.

The victim's injuries were not immediately reported as life-threatening.

Officials say, in the other incident, police and EMS were called to the vicinity of Woodlawn Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive to investigate reports of an injured person before 3 p.m.

When emergency responders arrived, they found an unidentified person suffering a serious head injury after a car struck them at that location. There was no word if the driver stayed at the scene.

Both incidents remain under investigation.

For any new mom, this is really key and cannot be repeated enough. You would like to think that having a baby locally and strolling home would be super nice, but you have to plan for you and your baby being in a center of excellence that can offer life-saving care if needed. I'm here today (and so is my son) because I chose Hackensack. We weren't anticipating any problems and I was enjoying a pretty uneventful second pregnancy. But when things suddenly went down hill really fast, I was glad that I was in a hospital with a stellar NICU.

Here’s a warning for people still using those old blue postal mailboxes

By Adrienne Romero | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — United States Postal Service mailboxes in Hudson County and five other counties in New Jersey are being targeted by inventive thieves who “fish” out mail, a postal inspector said.

Postal Inspector Greg Kliemisch said a number of collection mailboxes — the large, blue metal boxes — located throughout Jersey City have been victimized, but he declined to say how many or where, citing the ongoing investigation.

Hey Cuomo today just signed a bill designed to give scum like this a drivers license. With a drivers license undocumented people can vote in NY. Further the bill limits the dentention time allowed to hold criminal illegals. I'm sure that dope Murphy will be on board soon.


This simply isn't true, undocumented persons will not be able to vote as the requirements to register are:

- Be a United States citizen;
- Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file this form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);
- Resident of this state and the county, city or village for at least 30 days before the election;
- Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction (unless parolee pardoned or restored rights of citizenship);
- Not be adjudged mentally incompetent by a court;
- Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

And the bill has no provisions regarding detention, incarceration or any other form of detainment.

The point is the animal that killed Ms. Carolina was a bad dude and his citizenship status has nothing to do with that.


1. if they are already here illegally what's to stop them from checking the box claiming they are a US citizen and registering to vote? --- NOTHING
2. he was here illegally after being deported twice, his status has everything to do with her being dead at his hands.



What? Checking a box is not how we prove our citizenship in this country. We have these things called Social Security Cards and Birth Certificates. Citizenship status not on your drivers license and at voting polls you're typically required to bring two forms of ID one of which is those documents that "undocumented" people wouldn't have.

2. he was here illegally after being deported twice, his status has everything to do with her being dead at his hands.

Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez... Please explain what their citizenship status had to do with the murders they committed or is it you just prefer you killers who kill in the united states to be born here?


1. You are not required, by law (in NJ and NY), to show any form of ID at a polling station.

2. If you don't understand how easy it is to get a fake SS number (or rent a "real" one), then you don't really comprehend how easy it is for undocumented individuals to circumvent U.S laws. It is how many, many work, bank and live here. And it's simpler than you may think (and a heck of a lot more prevalent).

New York's motor-voter laws are based on the honor system. There are no checks to verify if someone is a legitimate voter. So while guidelines are in place, there is no method established for voter verification - just a simple opt-in to register when a license is obtained.

“Theoretically, they could have the ability to vote...”
Legislative sponsor Luis Sepúlveda (D-Bronx) admitted the provision could be abused.

Loophole in law granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses could lead to voter fraud

By Olivia Rizzo | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

The New Jersey Independent Victim Compensation Program will begin accepting claims related to the sexual abuse of minors by diocesan priests and deacons for all five of New Jersey’s Catholic dioceses, starting this weekend.

The program, known as IVCP, will be led by Kenneth R. Feinberg and Camille S. Biros, who have designed and administered similar programs for the Catholic dioceses in New York and Pennsylvania. They’ve also administered compensation programs for the victims of the Penn State sexual abuse claims, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Boston Marathon bombing.

Victims of clergy sexual abuse of minors can begin the claims process by going to www.NJdiocesesIVCP.com and reviewing the program protocol.

Hudson County voters will go to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in several primary elections.

There is a relatively light slate for voters across Hudson County, and there is expected to be little drama in the heavily Democratic county. There are a few county and state elected positions, such as county executive and sheriff, that all Hudson County voters will cast a ballot for.

The outsized sense of entitlement of the OP is breathtaking. I am not sure what it is that people are expecting but Starbucks is, at the end of the day, a business. First they were pressured into making bathrooms free to use by any and all, and then they were chastised for asking people to purchase something if they are going to sit and occupy space all day. Honestly, I think they have been VERY accommodating (weak?) by giving into all these demands. In NYC, some locations have removed the electrical outlets to prevent people from squatting all day.

Yes, a coffee shop is at its best when it is welcoming to patronize, and acts as a social hub, but some people truly abuse the largesse of some of these companies.


Bravo. Thank you!

The same Gestapo state that implemented no chain store rules (except for trendy donut shop chains) in downtown that were eventually rescinded. I'm not sure how the city could enforce this in a private home. Would it stand a legal challenge?

"I have been hosting Airbnb in Jersey City since 2012. My maintenance and upkeep of my property is impeccable. My relationship with my neighbors and guests are excellent. Airbnb offers a niche market that no one else will fill. I’ve hosted divorcees that desperately needed a place to stay; a family put out due to foreclosure; young people with good jobs but poor credit, people relocating, college students, etc. But mostly tourist worldwide and business travelers, these people would have never stepped foot in Jersey City if it wasn’t for Airbnb. They shop and eat locally, it’s a boom to the economy. There are no hotels in my neighborhood. But the hotel lobby has stuck their fat nose into my private property rights and personal business. My little Airbnb business bothers no one, and we are not the cause for high rents. Check your facts (see Bloomberg study). I was at the city council meeting tonight and there was overwhelming support for Airbnb. Only the hotel workers union, wearing their matching t-shirts and waving their signs was for this draconian ordinance. It is so obvious and corrupt. If jersey city residents don’t stand up now, no kind private property will be safe from over regulation and taxation. "

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — The Sip Avenue site that is home to the VIP Diner, the Journal Square eatery in business for over 45 years, has been sold.

Real estate firm Holliday Fenoglio Fowler announced the sale of 175 Sip Ave. on Thursday, making public a deal that has been rumored for months. The property is a roughly half-acre lot at Sip Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, making it prized land for a real estate developer. The Journal Square PATH station and transit hub is a short walk away.

Not just that: they provide plate number, the car's brand, model, and color, and a stock picture of the vehicle! And, they also provide a picture of the driver, and their name.

No amount of legislating will effectively counterbalance people's willingness to suspend common sense and total dereliction of self-preservation.


THANK YOU! I was waiting for a while at the Hoboken PATH the other night watching the amazing amount of Ubers/Lyfts picking people up. Folks were definitely looking at their phones trying to find their ride, but few checked the license plate. The one exception was a big burly dad with his kids in tow who walked to the front of the car and made sure he was getting into the right ride.
