I am waiting to hear some other suggestions on what can be done to alleviate this issue, as well as other issues affecting this city.

Lastly, to those of you coming to the defense of these teens, I'd be curious to hear how much time do you ACTUALLY spend/interact with these teens that you waste keystokes defending?


I came to their defense. I've worked with so-called "troubled" teens for most of my life and I'm not a young person. If you did the same you might just feel differently. Teens are like everybody else. There are good ones, there are bad ones. As long as they are young enough to turn things around, I'll line up on their side.

I did hang out with friends well after 10:00 at least on weekends. We were not looking to score pot or drink, we were looking to be away from our parents and to be with each other. Not every group of kids out late at night are the demons many of you fear.

Look....you chose to live in a city, a poverty stricken city that has more problems than you can ever imagine unless you leave downtown once in a while. There were kids on corners a long time ago, there will be kisd on corners a long time from now. Some of them will be doing bad things, some will be doing the same thing teenagers have always done - hanging out. Those of you so bothered by this that you want them all rounded up need to find another place to live because cops will never ride around picking kids up at 10:00. Despite what others have said, they truly do have much more important things to do.

The curfew ordinance was never intended to be enforced to the letter. If a group of kids are congregated and are causing no harm to anyone else, the police won't bother them even if it's after 10. However, if suspicious activity is observed it can be used strategically. Normally the group is given a warning to disperse. If they fail to do that after the police appear a second time, individuals may be driven home and placed under parents' guidance. If something more serious is suspected, they will be taken in under the ordinance.

Imagine if this ordinance was enforced city-wide each night. You would have hundreds of kids in police stations, many of whom did no wrong.

Re: Stop Signs on Erie Street - Steven FUlop

This is number one on my quality of life issues. Everyone on list has their justifiable fights, but this is the one that will end in serious injury or loss of life. Since drivers often disregard stop signs and just about always ignore marked pedestrian crosswalks, the issue exists at every intersection, but the one at Monmouth and Pavonia is out of control. NY bound drivers bail out on the Grand St. exit and head for the tunnel via the streets of downtown and Monmouth is the easiest route.

I personally think we have a good councilman downtown and he has been responsive to anything I've discussed with him, but this issue is ignored year after year. When the Jersey Journal headlines are about the person who never saw it coming from a car doing 50 on Monmouth, then we'll hear from out reps. Until then, it might be time for "Shame on You" again.

Bringing your resume to Central Office, 346 Claremont Ave., HR is on the 3rd floor, is probably the best way to go although there won't be any guidance positions available if any. High school openings possible, elementary no way.

What bothers me most is that Danny's Towing is right here in the neighborhood. Day in, day out he tows his victims through the streets of downtown to his garage. I know there are those who will say he's just making an honest living, but if your money comes from screwing your neighbors, you're a sad soul.
The towing sign by BJ's is too small and old to be noticed as it should. That is part of the game. And there is no doubt that they are all in bed together playing that good old fashioned game of "kick-back."

I contacted Steve Fulop about this but realistically there's nothing he can do. I wrote to the State Attorney General's office and received no reply. And so it goes.

That fact that a councilman behaves moronically is nothing new to Jersey City. Many have done far worse (some discovered, some not) and risen to be mayor. Over the years either the citizens have been forgiving or immune to it all. However, this guy runs a school! I don't care if he remains a councilman, they're impact is minimal. Just get him out of the way of kids and education.

All praise to Frank Gallagher. He has worked hard and long to keep the park natural. Despite being a government employee, he has stuck his neck out time and time again to maintain the park as natural as possible. He gets little praise, few accolades, and a lot of heat from his bosses.

The Friends of Liberty State Park has passed him over each year for an award he richly deserves. Somehow politicians (Manzo) are seen as more valuable to the park the Frank Gallagher. Ah, the games that are played.

There's a Morris Pesin Drive, and an Audrey Zapp Drive, both individuals who got the ball rolling at Liberty State Park. But it's Frank Gallagher who deserves most of the credit. It's just that you may never realize it. He does it quietly and effectively.

LeFrak cleaned up in Jersey City. As true as it is that those abandoned railroad yards were replaced by his towers, it's that true that he's profitted mightily. My question is did he give back? Anything to the school system? Nope, not a penny. To York St. Project, Boy/Girls Club, JC Recreation, anything to enrich the city that helped him see his profits.

Greatness should be judged not on how much a person takes but by what he/she gives back.

And so you see RJustin? There are times when it's just better to keep your ill-conceived opinions to yourself. It's not the conversations on this site I can't handle, it's the insensitivities of those such as you.

I was wrong though. The line that formed to offer opinions so soon after a man's death only had you on it. The long line was filled with those who thought you distasteful.

Re: towing at shoprite?

Quite a regular


Although never a victim of Danny's towing, I've seen far too many vehicles being towed out of the lot, most with out-of-state plates. The greatest wrong is in the size and condition of the signs warning those who park. It sickened me to the point of contacting Steve Fulop who responded with nothing can be done because the lot is private property. The more I thought about it the more I thought a deal was probably made between the city/tow company/BJ's. If BJ's wasn't getting kickbacks from Danny, why wouldn't they exercise the courtesy of renewing the signs?
I then wrote to the State Attorney General and received no response whatsoever.

The JC fire department has always been among the best there is. With all the attached housing and condensed population, they have to be. They're professional, take great pride in their role, and get the job done every time. I've lived here forever and there has never been a negative incident involving their work.

(Note: I'm not a fire fighter nor am I related to any.)

The mall serves the community it was built for. The teenage issue is a nationwide problem, not a JC problem. All of life is not clean and civilized and created for children/short people/professional people/people who like art house films.

Sigh.[/quote]

This about sums it up. You live in JC folks. The mall and its stores are in business to attract the greatest number of customers, not to cater to fanciers of Banana Republic and the like. Eddie Bauer, for example, went belly up fast. You can spend your money on this side of the river, but maybe not in JC. Try Short Hills.

Cities in the rest of the "civilized world" don't have "urban problems including a high crime rate" like us. They don't have the history that we do. They have racially homogeneous societies.

I have been in "inner cities" in Europe and never seen one that is as unsafe as the safest parts of Jersey City.[/quote]


London: 7 million - 29% immigrants

Paris: 2.2 million - 20% immigrants

Berlin: 3.4 million - 13.9% immigrants

Amsterdam: 1.4 million - 31% immigrants

Not so very homogeneous after all.

Nobody is advocating handing out guns like candy. Convicted felons, the mentally ill and the like are already prohibited from obtaining a firearms license. But what about the rest of us--the law-abiding, sane and rational folks? Most people are no more likely to shoot their neighbor than they are to brandish steak knives against one another. The fact that we are in an "inner city" seems, if anything, to make the case for more deterrents, not less. Of course, a responsive police force is a big part of the answer. (How about more cops walking beats instead of randomly roaming around in cruisers?) But we shouldn't discount self-defense as an active deterrent. After all, chances are better-than-average that the dealers and other criminal elements are packing illegal (read: unregistered) heat. So where does that leave the rest of us? Sitting ducks.[/quote]

About the steak knives: Not really. Most people will more easily trigger a gun than push a knife into another's body. It's about detachment from the crime. Otherwise, there would be more knife killings than gun killings.

And if we respond to criminals having guns by arming ourselves with them as well, then haven't we surrendered to them? It's not Dodge anymore. The day I feel so threatened that I have to have a gun in my home will be the day I move somewhere else. That day is not nearly on the horizon.

Gun control ensures that law abiding people don't have guns. Criminals will ALWAYS find weapons.

I can't believe that after reading this horrible story someone would actually take the position that this person doesn't have the right to defend herself.


Using your line of reasoning, we would have an entirely different problem than criminals breaking down doors. It would be the numbers of dead or wounded children victimized by gun-owning residents. How many of those to whom you would allow gun ownership do you think are drunks, addicts, or border line maniacs? In any inner city area the numbers are staggering. And how will you counter? By saying that they must be sure to lock up their firearms? How about making sure they're of sound mind before they reach for their weapon. Get real. Arming the citizens is surrendering. Fighting for safe neighborhoods is a lot saner.

Yes, the story is horrible. And so is your response.
