Re: 'Jersey Shore' Spin-Off in Jersey City

The article states:"Like all other films, there will be a requirement for hired police services paid for by the film company to reduce any impact on the public,” Morrill said.

The Jersey City Police Department is already undermanned and has trouble enforcing laws consistently. This filming will have an impact on the public by taking some cops away from their duties. This is going to be a bad distraction for the police.

Ive said this before and I'll say it again, the biggest obsticle to Jersey City residents being able to achieve the quality of life they deserve is the lack of enforcement and do as I say not as I do attitude that many Jersey City Police have. They don't lead by example and in many instances don't show show up when you call them. Jersey City will never reach it's true potential without officers who care about the community they serve and do the right thing.

Any ideas on what can be done about the lack of code enforcement? I think many people have lost faith in the JCPD's ability and desire to address quality of life issues. I'm sure many people have experienced calling them for a non emergency situation only to have them not show up at all. Honestly, if a bar or it's patrons are being loud and police are called I don't think the police would do much. They would probably just get irate at the person who called!

I think most people would be for this but the key to it being successful is in your statement...as long as noise ordinances are fairly and consistently enforced. Most people have come to realize that the JCPD are very inconsistent in enforcing anything. You can call them about quality of life issues and be lucky if they show up at all...they don't really consider it to be part of their job priorities.

I don't think that would be effective for two reasons:

1) They know about the trash - if they are doing anything, it's obviously not working
2) I have contacted them twice on two unrelated issues and never heard back from them

And why go to the middle man, why not just go directly to the source?

I am up for collecting trash and taking it to city hall :)

I don't blame you for moving. I love the location and I love my apartment but I'll move too before I'll clean up other people's filth every day. It's depressing seeing all this trash.


The only reason I say go to the associations is because it is easier for city hall/ elected officials to ignore small groups than it is for them to ignore large organized ones. I commend you for wanting to fight for a cleaner Jersey City and look forward to hearing how your Trash to City Hall venture turns out. Best of luck.

I don't think it's all the residents fault though. I have lived in a lot of cities - never seen trash on the street like this. I remember reading some studies long ago about how if an area is kept clean, then the residents are more likely to keep it clean. When it's dirty, they care less and are more likely to litter.

OK, so let's think about it. Obviously there a are a lot of JC residents that are disturbed by the amount of trash on the streets. It looks like we have several causes that need to be addressed:

1) "Trashy" residents
2) Ineffective city policies
3) Lack of enforcement
4) Lack of decent sanitation department or management of sanitation dept. (includes lack of trash cans)

What can we do that would actually be effective?

Agreed but who is supposed to be enforcing this? JCPD? Should this really be the responsibility of the JCPD when all they have to do is put in some trash cans and empty them regularly? Obviously someone needs to pay that pizza guy a visit but what about all the other trash? This city is overrun with garbage, someone is not doing their job. The sanitation dept? Who is responsible for keeping the roads clean?

I, like a lot of other posters here, think trash cans would go a long way towards solving this problem - who is in charge of that?


The Jersey City Incinerator Authority handles trash and fines. These issues have been brought to their attention for many years now with no change. My recommendation is to try to rally the various neighborhood associations around the cause...there is power in numbers. The only way to invoke meaningful change is to have the associations pressure the politicians who can then lean on the JCIA to clean things up, fine people and take pride in their jobs! Coordinate a strong message with the Neighborhood Associations and you'll at least have a fighting chance.

In defense of the city, it is the responsibility of the store and home owners to clean up there sidewalls.

I lived in Brooklyn for many years and trash is an issue there as well, even in the nice neighborhoods like park slope.

It is not until the residents and shop owners care enough to go outside and pick up the trash that things will start to look nicer.

After living here three yeas I have already seen a difference in the amount of trash.



Sorry but the problem is a LOT BIGGER than that. And I certainly don't expect my landlord to clean up trash thrown on the side walk by people walking down Palisade.

How about the PILES of trash on Observer Highway under the overpass? Have you seen that mess? It's disgusting. Have you ever walked down Patterson Plank and taken a look at the cliffs? Trash everywhere. Who is responsible for that?

Why is it that other cities can manage to get the trash off the streets but this one can't?


Jersey City needs politicians that care and ENFORCEMENT that wants to make a difference in quality of life issues

OK, so how about a class action lawsuit against the city? It's not sanitary, my sinuses have been clogged since I moved to this city. How many other people are suffering from health issues because of all the garbage we have to wade though just to get home?

And when does this mayor leave? We need a new mayor, trash everywhere, buses don't run on time or pass you by when they do finally come. This city is VERY POORLY run. The mayor should be ashamed of this mess.


Get involved with your local neighborhood association and voice your concerns. No matter what course of action you choose to take just realize in the end no matter what you do you can't make people/ d-bags care. Good luck

OK, so the city is broke - I remember seeing something about budget problems - and there is trash EVERYWHERE. Well why not start ticketing people a $100 a pop per littering incident? Make some money and clean up the streets. Problem solved.

Unbelievable!!! A 52 year old man with a 23 year old woman driving piss drunk with two young kids in the back...stabs her in the face with a key, she dives out of the van and he crashes twice. Now what is society supposed to do with a-holes like this? Makes me think we need to institute corporal punishment for extreme cases of disregard for child safety.

The problem is that if things did get rough out there, the cops MIGHT show up and chase them away without arresting anyone. Then the incidents would happen again and again and again.

Um...no. I think people get concerned due to the history of Jersey City's lack of enforcement. Parties like these start out innocently enough but in time can grow to large public disturbances/fights not to mention large quanties of trash being left all over the area. These situations can escalate and continue to occur repeatedly do to the fact that when police are called they fail to show up or if they do show they arrest no one. Drinking/open containers in public is illegal

What Blockwatcher said is the straight up truth. He and his brother loiter on Monmouth between Newark and Fourth St and sell drugs, fight, get drunk, loud and obnoxious and cause a lot of problems for the residents who live there. Now I guess you can add burglary to the list. The police/ judge needs to ban him and his gang of hoodlums from the area, residents should not have to endure these punks lowering the quality of life.

I'm not defending him or excusing his behavior at all. All I'm doing is explaining how the court system works.

He will be given a shorter jail term plus fines, and parole or probation. Plus the jails are overcrowded.

Either way he is not getting off the hook, if that makes you feel any better.


One of the requirements of his probation should be he needs to stay away from Monmouth St between Newark Ave and Fifth St. area or face immediate arrest. That is the area this crime was committed not to mention the majority of other crimes he commits daily. The residents need Efrain, his brother Frankie and their crew out of the neighborhood!

Efrain,s brother's name is Frankie and it is true, they BOTH have been a menace on Monmouth St between Newark and Fourth St for years. Frankie was arrested about a year ago on Monmouth for dealing drugs but was spotted again recently hanging out in his old place of business. These two are responsible for late night fights, drug dealing, public drinking, disturbing the peace and basically acting like they own the block. The JCPD needs to keep a close eye on Frankie now that his thieving ass brother got popped.

The cans overflow because dirtbag residents illegally dump their household trash in the public cans rather than just put it out on their blocks assigned trash day AND the JCIA skipping days they are regularly assigned to pick up the public cans. If the cans are not picked up everyday they will overflow. It's a Partnership for a Dirtier/Stinkier Jersey City...shameful!

Selective enforcement, turning a blind eye to blantent law breaking and not leading by example are three of the main problems with Jersey City police. I don't understand why they don't care more about the city.

It's a big quality of life issue. The problem has grown because nobody is doing anything about it.


Unfortunately the police are not very concerned about quality of life issues. This lack of concern is the main reason why Jersey City will never reach it's full potential. I often would be taken aback by the amount of graffitti Newark Ave attracted. Up and down Newark, practically on every other building you would see the same tags...year after year. It was as if the taggers had no fear of being caught . I even saw a tag spray painted right across the street from the police station! Newark Ave is the main artery of downtown JC, why don't the police feel they look stupid by not protecting it? Why don't they understand it makes them look bad when riff raff and taggers piss all over it?

Having done some driving downtown lately (I'm 99.9% a pedestrian), the parking close to corners (let alone crosswalks) thing is totally out of control. There is no way to check for oncoming traffic at many intersections without at least partially pulling into the intersection.

It is absolutely ridiculous that Jersey City allows this situation to persist, and a lack of parking spots on the street is in no way a valid excuse for looking the other way on this issue.

Step 1: repaint the red curbs.

Step 2: recommunicate to the public exactly what the red curbs mean

Step 3: aggressive enforcement


Step 2a: recommunicate to the police exactly what the red curbs mean and enact a no tolerance policy. LEAD by example!

Just curious -- if you call the non-emergency police line about this, will they write a ticket to the owner of the building? Or do they give a warning and if it's not taken care of they then write the ticket? Or is the law just never enforced?


Actually, if you call they won't show up. Try the JCIA.
