I heard on the news this morning that the Holland tunnel was open, operating inbound to the city only, and for Buses only.

Where these buses are coming from, picking up, and going to is a MYSTERY. The lack of information from PANYNJ or any other transit organization is astonishing. I guess its too much to ask for in NJ the land of the car owner.

FYI, I inquired about bike station in NJ, specifically Jersey City. This is their response (basically it ain't gonna happen unless the JC government is involved and I doubt that will ever happen until hell freezes.


Thank you for your interest in our bike share suggestion map. The site is a project of the NYC Department of Transportation. We can only contract Alta Bicycle Share to operate in the five boroughs, so leaving New Jersey suggestions on the map would misleading. However, we do plan to pass along all of the New Jersey suggestions to local governments in Hoboken and Jersey City, which have expressed interest in introducing bike share as well.

Re: Ibby's - DO NOT GO!

A neighborhood bar owner approached several businesses along Grove St near Wayne, one of which was Ibby's, to ask them if they'd be interested in participating in a local block party in which all the businesses could participate. Ibby's only reaction was to call the bar owner (yelling at him) a f**king fa**ot and to get the hell out of his place and he had no interest in associating with the bar owner or his bar. I think that speaks volumes of homophobia and hate.

The sad part is I love middle eastern food. My family is partly from that region and I've eaten this kind of food my all my life and it is still my favorite. I've been to Gypsy grill a few times and have ordered from them using Seamless. Each experience in person has been friendly, has been delicious, and no problems.

Without doubt this is the best pizza and more. My personal favorite is the Chicken Milanese. But order the half portion. The dinner size portion is enough for two people.

Hey 4merLIgirl you should seriously consider posting your experience on Yelp and other food oriented sites. I've never gone to Ibbys because I heard Ibby and his boys were extremely homophobic which is so not cool and I don't give a f**k what your religion is. People are people are cilents. Treat everyone respectfully and give good service and your business will thrive. Do the opposite and it will fail. Good riddance to Ibby and his thieves.

Where to voice your concern/complaint to get safer streets for pedestrians
#10
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


To everyone who cares on this thread and wants a STOP sign or traffic light installed or improved, direct your ideas, complaints, concerns to where it counts, to the people who can take action... I did and I got the 3-way stop sign and alternating red light at the intersection of 10th & Erie. Sometimes raising your voice works. Try it, you've got nothing to lose. Complaining on this board is not effective.

I contacted these people and got it done.

Contact the Mayor?s Action Bureau by going to http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/administration.aspx?id=1204 or calling 201-547-4900 and asking that signs and pedestrian caution measures be taken immediately to make this intersection safer.

Also email Director D'Souza at joao@jcnj.org and his supervisor Chuck Lee (director of engineering) at clee@jcnj.org

Steven M. Fulop - Jersey City Councilman, Ward "E"

Only in Jersey City STOP signs are for decoration

Walking home this evening up Erie St as I crossed 4th street, a car approached. I was already in the crosswalk. This b***h in her car literally started to swerve to go around me to go through the intersection. She didn't even attempt to stop as she is supposed to. I pointed to the STOP sign. And then she starts to yell at me from inside her car. As if she even has an argument. WTF does it take to get a drivers license in NJ? DO they dispense them from gum-ball machines for a quarter?! Are STOP signs in JC literally just for decoration?!!!

JC's (safe) walkability factor (major failure)
#12
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Over the past few years there's been a noticeable push by JC government and some local real estate developers to make JC one of those high ranking safe for pedestrian shopping "walkable neighborhoods". Frankly as much as I want to see this be a reality, I laugh at it. Since I moved to JC about 4 years ago, I've seen and read about more car accidents on the local streets of downtown JC than I care to count. I've witnessed the most lawless and reckless driving on our local streets in my lifetime than anywhere else I've lived. I've been witness to a pedestrian crossing guard near a school get hit by a car on Marin Blvd and 9th Street. I witness on a daily basis people running across major streets like chickens because of a lack of traffic lights to accommodate a large proportion of pedestrians who need access to local public transit centers (PATH/LightRail). I've been nearly hit by a car rushing up Erie St. I see everyday drivers crossing main streets only looking one way and not even giving a care about a pedestrian crossing from the other side of their view. Just last night a JC police car sped right past me turning up onto Jersey Ave (in a non-emergency) as I was crossing and already in the cross-walk missing me by 2 feet. Not comforting.

So I have to ask the mayor, the JC council members, and local real estate developers (with enticing walkable marketing campaigns)... what the hell are you doing to make Jersey City a safe and walkable environment for pedestrians and drivers alike?

I've never seen this old map. But I am interested in the line that extends straight into the north section of downtwon JC past the Mall. Do these tracks still exist? How great would it be if they opened a new station west of the Mall. It would make everyone who lives west of that craphole very very happy. Wow imagine not having to walk through the Mall or walk all the way down to Grove. It'd be a dream.

Re: Hamilton Square

I've spoken with Eric Silverman, the developer and he says there will be a new construction built on top of the yard on the south side, which sits between the current Hamilton Square building and the old school. I'm not sure when and if the old school will be converted but I think that is part of the plan. I was curious how high the new construction will be built in fear of it blocking the amazing view from the south facing units. But Mr.Silverman replied he is pretty sure the building would not exceed 6 or 7 stories. Granted thats not set in stone and I worry for those who have that view will eventually lose it.

Which local downtown JC hospital is better for Emergencies?
#17
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I'm a long time NYC resident and only lived in JC for the past 4 years. Jersey City Medical Center and Christ Hospital are the two closest hospitals in Downtown JC. I've never had to use either them in an emergency. I did visit Christ once for an ear problem and I was not impressed to say the least. Who has had experience using JC Medical Center for an emergency visit? And for an emergency, which would anyone recommend based on actual experience with each hospitals emergency intake? Thanks much for anyone's insight.

P.S. I'm looking for real responses based on actual experiences. Please, I'm not looking for smart ass remarks or jokes which I see quite often on this board.

Thanks everyone for all the info. Great memory Xerxes. Thank you.

It is a pity. Me being from Manhattan (a native), I think it would've been great. The area is exactly the kind of place I prefer my nightclubs. As for HPNA, I think they over reacted. Increased traffic? Pahleeze. Did they not notice the Holland Tunnel right next door with traffic constantly running up Monmouth, Jersey, and Erie Streets???

Looking for info on failed The Colosseum gay night club in JC
#19
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Hi all,
I'm looking for some dated information on a failed night club opening sometimes around year 2000. Perhaps some of you long time Jersey City residents would know. I was told that a gay night-club called The Colosseum was built or opened around 10 years ago (2000). I think it was somewhere along Coles Street and 12th Street, under the route 78 offramp. I'm just guessing, because there's only one operational building at that location now. I've walked along here at it seems like the perfect place for a night club although there isn't much parking available. From the story I've heard so far, apparently the then Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association fought against the club opening and it never opened, or didn't last long. So whats the real deal? I'm very interested to know. I love these urban legends. If anyone knows the details or the story on this, please share, even if just general info. Thanks

I'm wondering if in Jersey City has switched to using Constellation Energy, an alternative electricity supplier. They claim to offer 10-12% savings on energy costs over PSE&G.

Can anyone shed some insight on the Newport Mall lockout of Hamilton Park?
#25
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I'm relatively new to downtown JC within the past 5 years. I live in the Hamilton Park neighborhood. Since moving here I've become sickeningly aware at how the entire Newport Mall has systematically isolated Hamilton Park from the waterfront and all things in that area specifically including services and transportation like the Path and Light Rail. If you look on a map, you can clearly see how the Mall runs the length from 6th to 11th Streets. Everything west of Marin Blvd is effectively "cut-off". Residents of Hamilton Park who live west of Marin between 6th & 11th Streets are FORCED to walk through a goddam parking lot and then through the Mall just to get to the trains. Or walk completely out of your way to walk around the Mall which is a very unpleasant walk. This just smacks of stupidity. And obviously greed on the part of the Mall. MAKE them walk through it and they will shop. This is bad enough, but walking through a parking lot is just gross and ugly and unsafe at night. Then add insult to injury that the Mall locks their northern exits later at night, forcing anyone who has to walk through the Mall to use the southern exits, effectively taking you out of your way and adding several minutes to a commute.

Its my understanding that years ago Hamilton Park was a very run down neighborhood and contained an "undesirable" element. Even if true, it's really f**ked for the city to allow the Mall to have cut off an entire neighborhood from access to services. But then again this is Jersey City so I can certainly see how this could happen.

Recently a friend of mine told me all this is going to change. I hope so. But in what way? Obviously Hamilton Park has changed a lot. The Park has been renovated and the neighborhood is beautiful. So what can be done to make getting to the Path past the Mall a more pleasant experience? Unless an asteroid comes out of the sky and destroys the Mall, I don't see any reconstruction happening anytime soon. An outdoor walking mall with trees and plants cutting through say 8th Street from Marin to Washington would be a beautiful thing, but I won't hold my breath.

So I'm curious, does anyone have any news or insight into this situation or have you heard of any plans that there will be changes to bring Hamilton Park closer (so to speak) and more convenient to the waterfront and Path services?

The reason why this intersection was changed to an All Way Stop is because residents, like me, who live at this intersection. This is a dangerous intersection for pedestrians. Believe it or not people actually live on this street and have to cross it to get to the other side.
But then again I don't expect drivers to care about pedestrians since they don't slow down or stop, or have nearly run me and my neighbors down a few times. When you try to cross the street and cars come at you at crazy speeds and miss you by a few inches because they're so desperate to get to the Tunnel, then maybe you'll understand why this is now an all stop intersection.
If you're a driver and you don't like stop signs or signals, then don't drive on local streets. If you have to drive up local residential streets with lots of pedestrians, then you should expect there to be traffic signals.

Crosswalk countdown timers installed @ 12th St & Grove St
#27
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


On my way to Home Depot recently I noticed the city has installed countdown timers at the pedestrian crosswalk for the intersection of 12th Street & Grove St. This is amazing! I personally find crossing 12th and 14th Streets really dangerous, so these countdown timers are a real help in knowing how much time I have to cross. If you didn't notice the crossing light starts to blink red only 5 seconds after the white cross signal lights. Its always pissed me off and made me nervous the light would change red half way across this really wide street (more like a highway).

I really hope the city installs these countdown timers on 12th and 14th Street between Jersey Ave and Marin where they're needed. There's a lot of shopping on the other side of 14th Street and people who live in Hamilton Park and below have no choice but to cross 12th and 14th Streets. I'm glad the city is finally recognizing this. At least I hope so.
