I notice that lots of the newbies think they live in Mayberry. Cars left running, dogs left unattended outside businesses and Amazon packages on every stoop. DTJC is becoming like Christmas morning for thieves and dog-fighting gangs. Yes dopey, if you leave your dog all alone and the wrong person or teenager comes along, your dog will be either used as a bait dog for fighting, sold or held for ransom. Yes, that happens still.

Fulop rethinking support of North Jersey casino expansion

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

Mayor Steve Fulop is expressing some new hesitance to support an expansion of casino gaming into northern New Jersey, after spending more than a year touting the idea as a way to boost the economy and create new jobs.

Fulop visited Atlantic City today to talk to city officials and residents about the impact of casinos on the city and has come away much more pessimistic about the positive benefits of a casino in Jersey City, he said.

"I'm not so sure today that this is in the best interest of our city," he told The Jersey Journal in a phone interview today.

Maybe he was propositioned by a skanky hooker? Offered a ride in a rusty pedi-cab? Offered cheap ass saltwater taffy or fudge? Maybe he watched seniors blowing their social security on slot machines? Maybe it was the tobacco laden air? Maybe he saw James Bond in a high-stakes game of poker? (Oh wait, that's pure fiction) FUCK the stupid casinos.

Leave the embankments as they are. The wild, unkempt and somewhat mysterious natural thing is so much more interesting.
The city needs to open Enos Jones Park up to the public once the lead issue is resolved. Right now it belongs to a select few who control who can use the fields and when. As far as roads are concerned, they will be in a perpetual state of disarray as more water-mains deteriorate and new, crappy and overstuffed buildings are erected. The harder it is for traffic to pass through downtown the better it is for the residents safety. Right now the DTJC area is in a transformation wherein, like Hoboken, it's becoming more and more evident that pedestrian traffic must take precedent over somebody's commute. The battle between pedestrians and the number of drivers breaking the law is truly frightening to watch. Slowly though I see more and more cars yielding at crosswalks but there are still many maniacs who will ignore, speed and try to scoot around the yielding cars. JCPD has to step up and start cracking some heads.

New Jersey law (N.J

that the receipt of retirement benefits is expressly
conditioned upon the rendering of honorable service
by the member (i.e. a public officer or public employ-
ee). A member may be subject to a reduction or for-
feiture of earned service credit,* salary, and/or ben-
efits if suspension, dismissal, or termination of
employment is due to misconduct; or if convicted of
a crime that is in any way related to his or her
employment or involves a crime of moral turpitude.

This mentality is so very wrong. I own a car and live in Jersey City. I sometimes have to commute to my office in W.Jersey. Just because I work somewhere that is not easily accessible by public transit means I should move closer to my job and leave Jersey City?


If your living preference has enough of a negative impact on those around you, then yes.


Will you move into NYC when the PATH Trains are no longer sustainable? I mean, really, your response is just silly.

How is parking even allowed in the architecture on a building on a block like this. Its going to look like shit I imagine.

So dumb.


People aren't required to own cars but some people need them. If you don't want to use a spot then rent it and you have another car off the street. The pipe dream of everyone walking or biking everywhere is just that. Believe it or not there are some people in Jersey City who work in west Jersey. If they had figured out a way to move everyone's job closer to their home then we would have very little traffic anywhere. That too is a pipe dream.

I agree. What's wrong with having some green space that is wild and inaccessible? Actually it was accessible for some and adds an element that most "cities" don't have anymore. Those old stone walls are amazing and a reminder of our past. The whole "new, new, new" philosophy is why the beautiful old Penn Station is now a jetty on the Jersey shore.

I agree with slowing down drivers with speeds bumps or the police actually ticketing motorists blowing through stop signs, but we pay some of the highest taxes in the country and should have roads that don't look 3rd world.


A lot of the road destruction is caused by the constant repairs and updates needed to the sewer and gas lines. If people want high-rises then they have to consider that all that new, additional poop has to go somewhere so sewer lines must be expanded. Also the gas lines need to be extended to reach the new buildings like the ones going up on the 10th Street embankment. (I still can't believe they allowed development on those beautiful old embankments.) The next big Sandy-like storm should bring DTJC a flood of raw sewage what with all the new residents.

Similar question.

Does it seem a little unscrupulous to enforce alternate side parking when 25%+ of Hamilton park streets are closed?

Does the city have a policy on this?

(I got ticketed twice the past two weeks, super frustrating)


I agree. I have said this for years. Most of the parking around H.P. was taken "just in case" for the construction of the giant crane at Hamilton Place. They should "green zone" certain streets. When they hang the no parking signs the same people should post green zone signs to indicate that only permit parking will be enforced on the nearby streets but not street sweeping. It's really quite simple. Also, who the F**K coordinates the street closures in Jersey City? A retarded caveman? It's decidedly uncoordinated and random and the cops assigned to it are basically useless at directing traffic. I think they just don't want to bother directing traffic so they just close the street.

I'm assuming you live on undeveloped land?


It's about the kind of development dopey. The building I'm in is over 100 years old and will be here 100 years from now. The new development around DTJC is shite. Get a clue.


The Jersey City of 2016 is infinitely better than the Jersey City of the 1980s. Development is the primary reason. Obviously there is a lot of shite development out there, and Jersey City must aim for better. Developers won't like it, but JC should introduce design standards in the zoning (a ban on vinyl sliding for new construction would be a start, in my view.)

Where you give away your NIMBYism is by citing density. We should be encouraging densities to ensure there is an adequate supply of market rate housing to keep things affordable and to cover the costs associated with any new design standards to require better materials and overall quality.

Our current zoning is the problem, and the sooner it's amended, the better.


Believe me, when I think about the new residents downtown "density" is the first word that comes to mind. In any case, market rate is one thing but no one in DTJC is going to allow low income housing if they can help it. This is about and has always been about property values. It's no accident that just about every realtor in DTJC owned multiple properties before the boon in development began. It is no accident that in Hamilton Park the Southwest and Northwest quadrants of the park do not contain anything but grass lawns. Those are the areas that faced the homes of the people who were the presidents and members of the H.P.N.A. who controlled what happened where.


You know, when the reval eventually happens, anyone downtown who advocates limiting the supply of new housing in hopes of increased property values is very short sighted because they're in for a nasty surprise when they get their tax bill. The only way forward is aggressive growth of the tax ratable base. That unabated 99 Hudson St tower will alone contribute to 2 percent of the ratabale base before reval, and more afterwords. We should have baked the developers a cake.

With the coming reval, downtown homeowners should be begging for new luxury developments that will help blunt the impact in a reval. Even if a new building receives an abatement, the land is still taxed and the PILOT payment results in greater revenue to the city than it would have received. This is done by legally robbing the county and school board of funds. The rest of Hudson County has to make up the shortfall for our abatements affecting the county while the whole state does the same for our schools. Horrible laws that's inequitable but Mayor Fulop is fully justified to exploit them if the state is unwilling to change.


Most people I know have a rental property and will use them to pay their taxes. The crappy condo pictured on 5th Street sold for just over $300,000 4 years ago and is now selling for over $700,000? Those people deserve to get hammered by taxes. In truth, I couldn't care less. I am out of here very soon. Jersey City has become the poster child of shotty urban planning. It will soon look like Flushing Queens. In 20 years it will all be under water anyway.

The alternative is to demand more from the developers than crappy mediocre buildings, particularly when they are seeking variances to put up these buildings and they dont even live in our community. We shouldnt sell ourselves out so cheap or else this town in going to look like crap in 20 years and everyone will say " what were they thinking?". This is why we should not be so gleeful to cave to any developer request for a variance in the name of "progress". Keep in mind that the developer doesn't give a darn about our neighborhood - they just want to jam in as much density as they can so they make more money - then go home to their mcmansion in the burbs.

I was walking by a building in downtown under construction today( a building that obtained a variance) and saw workers cutting huge "blocks" of white styrofoam. The next worker was then coating the styrofoam in concrete, so that the end product looked like large concrete slabs. They were "making" a lot of these. Any builders on here have any idea why they would be doing this? Sure seems like shoddy construction to me if these styrofoam "slabs" were going to be used in the construction....


Exactly this and when you see floor to ceiling windows you should run away. That monstrosity by Enos Jones looks like crap and will probably be leaking like a sieve soon. The "not our problem" attitude is all you'll get once you've actually bought some of these properties. The developers are cashing in and getting out with sweet deals. I have lived in DTJC for a long time and sure development is inevitable. In the Hamilton Park area I would not have hesitated to buy into the old St. Francis Hospital as the units were built on the bones of a solid old building. Everything else I see going up in "new construction" looks flimsy and rushed. Cramming people in is not progress except for the developers. I am guessing most of the push comes from single people who are looking to up their chances? Soon we will have a city of losers.

All white people who make this City great and continue to make it great, please report to the park on Wayne Street and reclaim our City." There are many black and brown people who make this City great, contribute in many ways and just because someone makes above a certain incomes doesn't mean he/she makes the City great. Likewise, just because someone makes below a certain income, doesn't mean they make the City bad. People should think more.
no one is forcibly forcing low income people to move out of prime areas, at some point, prime areas become unaffordable...supply and demand. although i agree that government efforts can help/hurt affordability
