I know it's illegal to do this in Jersey City without a zoning variance or a grandfathered curb cut. Who can I call to complain about it?


You sound like a great neighbor.


You sound like an ass. In a row of houses with a front yard you can't just shitty pave over it and put your car or whatever other shit you have on it. You sound like a shit neighbor.

But, again, this measure is overly aggressive in trying to solve this problem. If I want to spend the Summer away and rent out my unit to a friend, or even a stranger, for the month or two I will be away, I would not be allowed to do so legally, even if I had the consent of my landlord, as I live in a building with 5+ units. Where's the harm in that scenario?



When I sign a lease I'm making a commitment. I just want the landlord to do the same and keep rando's out of the building. If you want to run a hotel, run a hotel. This isn't about the one off renting your apartment for the summer, which in my opinion shouldn't be allowed either. This is about a cash grab, pure and simple.

How is that a good idea? Because so many people get off the Path and take the ferry now? Because it's so easy to get to Exchange Place on the bus and then you want to get off and get on a gondola? Given the number of people that can get on gondola, how would that even be remotely cost effective or efficient?
I think rentable jet packs would be awesome. You would dock them like Citibike on each side of the river. At least getting to work would be fun. So what if you lose a few people in the river? There's more where they came from.

As usual the whole "forum" concept eludes a lot of people. I don't care about anyone's actual opinion, I just think they should be able to express it without (too much) abuse.
I mean the occasional "you're a nut" or "what's wrong with you" might be ok, but beyond that is just ignorant (in my opinion, lol).

And there is no shortage of misinformation in these forums, so that's not an excuse for abuse either.

There must be a JC mommy board on FB where the more reasonable posters can post their opinions as fact. Also neighborhood.com is a perfect place for people who love to narc on their neighbors!
Jclist should go on vacation for a few months.

PATH introducing cellphone service to underground stations

Updated 6:45 PM; Posted 6:45 PM

By Patrick Villanova
The Jersey Journal

Underground PATH stations are officially joining the 21st century.

The Port Authority announced Tuesday that cellphone service is being added to nine underground PATH stations, with connectivity from major carriers phased in over the course of the rest of the year and into early 2019.

As of Tuesday, AT&T and T-Mobile cellular service is available at underground PATH stations in New York, while cell service from both providers will expand to New Jersey's PATH stations in the next three weeks. Verizon Wireless and Sprint customers will see system-wide cellular service in both New York and New Jersey's underground PATH stations early next year.

Cellular connectivity will be available on platforms and throughout underground stations.

"We want to upgrade service to the traveling public at all our facilities," Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said in a statement. "Access to cell coverage is an important expectation of PATH customers."

PATH follows in the footsteps of New York City's Metropolitan Transit Authority, which finished adding cellphone service to all of its subway stations in January 2017.

The PATH stations in New York with the new cellular coverage are: 33rd, 23rd, 14th, Ninth, and Christopher streets. The World Trade Center PATH station has had cellular coverage since it opened in 2016.

https://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... d.html#incart_river_index


this is awesome news! I was wondering why I started getting a signal at the 14th street station last week. now I know.


I am not at all excited by the prospect of cell service availability within trains or stations. People are rude enough as it is, so imagine the additional annoyance of people loudly speaking into their phones, as they flaunt the many other rules about music, food, etc. Even NJ Transit and Metro North were forced to add "quiet cars" to their trains because of this issue. Alas, that's a non-starter for the PATH considering the current overcrowding issues.


The environment on the platform is not all that conducive to a conversation. As a Path rider it would be nice to be able to text my boss when I'm going to be late which is pretty frequent, dial into an early conference call when there's a delay, or for people who have to pick up kids, get a ride...etc. Stop whining it's 2018 for christsakes.

1) JC List is supposed to be a forum where people can express their opinions.
2) Name calling in no way supports your opinion, makes your argument more substantial or helps in any way to get your point across, and actually makes you look stupid and childish.
3) If you have a problem with someone you have the power to close your eyes, click on another window...etc.
4) Very few new people bother with JC List anymore. I've been on it for about 10 years and now I just check it mostly because it's like a train wreck and I can't seem to look away for long.
5) I don't know any of you and have no vested interest in anyone "winning" an argument. Truthfully I'm over all of you. I'm just expressing an opinon.
6) And again a forum doesn't necessarily need to devolve into an argument.

More people means there is more competition for housing. Rents were extremely cheap, around $150 a month.


OK so why is there a housing shortage and not a food shortage or an automobile shortage or clothing shortage?


Hmmm because all of those other things are easier to produce?
Because all of those other things can be imported?

I hate to be a basher too, but the past month has been horrific. Or more horrific than usual, as the case may be. It's hard not to call the powers at the Port Authority incompetent morons who don't give a shit about the riders. I'm assuming they have no accountability thus they can do whatever they want with zero repercussions. It's beyond disgraceful and nobody cares.

The cops came in 5 minutes and I was thinking that was pretty great. So thanks for a job well done. No reason to get snippy.

In the morning the train from Grove to Newark moves like a rocket, there's nobody on it.
I don't do it to get a seat, I couldn't care less about standing, it's having to wait for multiple trains to go by before you get in one.
Not as many people get out at Exchange Place as want to get in. As far as I'm concerned they have it the worst at Exchange Place.
Again, consider trying it.
And name calling without the facts is rude, and there is more than enough rudeness on jclist.

For WTC commuters shut out at Grove:
Take the Newark train back to Harrison not JSQ. JSQ is frequently as bad as Grove now and Harrison is only 3 minutes away and frequently much more civilized. It's pretty annoying to take the train backward to JSQ and still get shut out of one or two trains. Particularly between 8 and 9am.

Re: PATH - proposed Newark Airport extension

Apparently we are living in parallel universes.
Today:
8:29- WTC train pulls in, I am at the at the front end of the train where there is generally more space, and there was except there were alot of people in front of me so I couldn't get in. OK.
8:31 33rd St train pulls in
8:33 a second 33rd St train pulls in
8:37 WTC train pulls in but it's packed because there hasn't been a train in several minutes, one or two people manage to get in at Grove. Pushers would have been useful.
8:39 another WTC train comes and I am in the front of the platform and I get in, and it is packed.
Train pulls into Exchange Place where generally several people get out but not today. Sucks for you Exchange Place riders.
Total wait time only 10 minutes. Total experience: Sucked but typical.

I would love to be able to get to the airport via the Path but additional riders in the morning commute, and on the WTC line would be a disaster.

Do you really understand the Rush Hour crunch? The morning rush "hour" is 6:30 am to 9:30am. From 7:30am to 8:30 am the WTC train is so packed you frequently have to let one or two trains pass to get in one at Grove St. I frequently take the train back one stop to Journal Square if it's really bad. The second Journal Square tower isn't up yet. Combine that with all the other buildings going up and the PATH is basically obsolete. The 33rd St train is slightly better but that won't last given the increase in population. Our neighbors at Exchange Place are in a much worse position with almost zero capacity from 7:30 to 8:30am. It would be awesome if they could increase service at off times and on weekends as well but frankly, I'm more worried about getting to work than being late for brunch. The ferries are pretty much worthless given the cost and the fact they are only accessible to a small portion of the city. Extending the PATH will just make a miserable rush hour even more miserable. But since you understand it so well.....

Total nonsense. Even for Newport riders.

It can get a little crowded, but it is extremely rare that the train is so jammed you can't get on. When that does happen, there's usually a half-empty train right behind it.

You want crowded? Try the 4/5/6 during rush hour.


You are probably confusing the alternate universe you are traveling in with reality. Or else you are one of those people who just push into the train as long as they can get two toes in the door. Or just a troll on JC List with no actual experience. Lots of those lately.
