Wow - -you must be right about the crime increase in the case as you've given us your source of 2 liberal friends who live in Manhattan.

The notion that crime has increased came came from two different liberal democrat friends of mine who live in Manhattan. They've reported anecdotally an increase number of muggings on the streets and on the subways. It's an apparent result of De Blasio releasing low level criminals from prison. One is a CFO of a small biotech start up and the other the CIO of a large law firm. The CIO has been living in Manhattan since 1978.

Rule #1: When you have failed at your task, blame others. If our current president somehow had a term length similar to FDR, he'd still be blaming Obama and past administrations and/or invisible enemies that he never saw coming for why America isn't yet great again in 2030. When you can yell loud, you can convince others. Blame Democrats, Obama, Clintons, the Bush family, the Chinese, bone spurs.. whatever comes to mind - all good.

I actually knew elderly people who have died from the complications of pneumonia because they were exposed to an influx of illegal immigrants in their neighborhood. These were new strains found in that population. So if this virus is contagious, they it is about time this government take a look at the illegal immigrants which who brings in health problems especially in crowded communities.

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.

To pin point teacher's salaries for the reason someone can't afford to pay their taxes on their house in a highly gentrified city is asinine.

Re: Parking ticket worth fighting?
#6
Home away from home
Home away from home


It depends on how much the ticket is and how much your time is worth.

If the tickets are $55 (or similar) each, determine 2-4 hours out of the average person's work day is worth the cost if the judge actually dismisses them.

In the past when I've disputed tickets, they usually always get dismissed if you have a good story, photos, and present yourself well and are prepared.

I've witnessed older residents present the case against being ticketed for being double parked give excuses like "I was just bringing in groceries.." and the judge would reduce or dismiss them.

It takes a long chunk out of your day for the chance to save $50 - $100 or so. Over the past few years I've been written 3-4 really questionable tickets that I know I could get dismissed if I fought them, but I just paid them because my time is worth more than the cost of the ticket.

No, its because she stated she would rather spend "the capital" elsewhere. There is no capital, Amazon is the capital, and the tax breaks were future breaks that hinge on their job creation numbers. BU cum laude degree in economics apparently isn't worth all that much.

Hopefully she was a better bartender - she should go back to working for tips.

You also happen to be wrong.

There definitely was capital involved. In fact, $1.8 billion is NOT tax breaks, it is actual outlays from NYC and NY to Amazon:

Amazon will receive $897 million from the city’s Relocation and Employment Assistance Program (REAP) and $386 million from the Industrial & Commercial Abatement Program (ICAP). It will receive an additional $505 million in a capital grant and $1.2 billion in “Excelsior” credits if its job creation goals are met. That brings the total amount of public funds granted to $2.988 billion—in other words, the city and state will pay Amazon $48,000 per job.
https://ny.curbed.com/2018/11/16/18098 ... ong-island-city-explained

And again, these grand plans have a way of not working out. Companies employ fewer people than promised, or the jobs aren't as good as promised, or they find ways to avoid paying taxes. Amazon even threatened to leave Seattle because it didn't want to pay a proposed tax.

Sounds like someone was paying attention....


Big part: "if its job creation goals are met" - thus future tax breaks hinged on their ability to generate the tax revenue

You’re not crazy. There are new ones they recently installed. I saw them putting in wires a week or so ago. Today, I noticed the LED screens were mounted, and operational. It was just a bunch of colors, but they were on.

Thank you Yvonne for wasting our elected officials collective time and our tax dollars to begin to review a second petition of what is likely to consist of fake names to oppose a statue from being moved one block of the waterfront to one block south due to your personal vendetta against our current mayor. I'm glad your speaking for NJ on behalf of everyone here.

Maybe when you attempt to lead the effort for the 3rd petition you should ask those that sign the petition to offer a donation to pay for that 3rd party to review the fake signatures (per your suggestion) as opposed to the tax payers.

Where Bright, Grove, and Grand almost meet each other, there were several feet of water on Bright. That is where the surge came from and it is very low set. During Sandy, there was no power for two weeks. If you look at some of the row houses on the east side of Grove on that block, a few are still devastated from Sandy - that area took a major hit.

I like Razza pizza but it's comparing apples to oranges. Razza is not really NY traditional style pizza at all. Both styles are great in different ways.

Just cancel student debt, really? That's the plan? Also feeding into 911 conspiracies. Brilliant. Before anyone wastes their vote, they should probably research the candidate - simply voting for someone for the sake of not voting for Clinton or Trump is not a wise move.

Re: WAZE App showed me the rest of JC

Not every renter in JC needs to invest their time and effort into being concerned about the entire city.

I would say the majority of downtown renters only care about their immediate surroundings and their ability to get to the city. Unless they are investing in other parts of JC, who cares if they are living and comfortable in their downtown bubble.

While it sucks that most of Greenville is stricken by crime and undeveloped areas, that really is not of my concern as I have no desire to frequent or invest in those areas. If you want to help out the people of those areas and get involved, all the power to you - but don't expect those that are happy living and spending their time downtown to have the same passion as you.

I can't see a trendy tapas place succeeding there. A sports bar would have done well.

With as long as it's taken them to get this place open, I'm sure the cost has been high, the demand for a tapas place will not pay the bills. They'll never hit the black.

The lanes on Grove are still doing great as they are consistently at least 50 - 60% blocked by vehicles that are double parked.

so how is jersey city doing with implementing bike lanes?

there are some nice green textured ones on a few blocks of lower Montgomery and part of Columbus.

there are some more stripped/painted ones, throughout the city. But, none (or few) are connected. there are none that go more than a few blocks east/west and none from uptown to downtown (up/down the hill.)

now with Citi Bike expansion, there should be a need for a connected bike lane system. and perhaps a trial protected bike lane.

Re: Problems with Comcast?
#30
Home away from home
Home away from home


I believe a lot get sucked into advertising. Both Fios and Comcast are fiber. They are both extremely fast. As a comcast subscriber, and an IT professional that runs his own company and has virtual machines accessible through the network... comcast is good.

Maybe 10 years ago, with cable internet you would notice your bandwidth being affected by other users.. but that is far from the case these days. I get consistent 180Mbps download - it's possible if everyone in the neighborhood is downloading movies at the same time it can get throttled to 160Mbps -- which is still amazing and more than anybody needs.

It is the equipment within the buildings that are peoples problems - not the service coming to the building.

People get so sucked into marketing campaigns to think that one service is faster than the other... when in reality they are both faster than anyone needs.

Customer service and pricing however is a completely different story. I can only speak to Comcast on that and they suck at it - but have gotten slightly better over the past few years.
