it's a shame that the WF can't go into the sears location (or part of it). that would be a very strong location imo.

Do you mean individual refunds and rebates (abatements?) or those tied to a project?
i meant that individual tax credits/refunds/rebates should perhaps in someway be tied to school attendance/performance for those who have kids. maybe welfare/food stamps/wic too? not trying to be mean, but maybe a different approach is needed

Well, I dealt with them on high-value stuff, not just homeowners which you asked about. Standard protocol when notified of a claim is to deny coverage. Then it gets litigated, sometimes for years, before a legitimate coverage payment is made. I spent 20 years in that industry and I saw it firsthand. Insurance requires a certain amount of trust between both parties. They expect you to pay the premium and you expect them to pay for covered loss or damage. I won't do business with a company that I don't trust-

I feel like the public school board is a blackhole. Any amount of money thrown in it will vanish from this universe, never to be seen again.

I wish the state would reform school aid formula to force reforms.
public school funding is going to be a waste until society somehow convinces certain types of parents that their children go to school to learn and not to play basketball, etc. perhaps tax refunds/rebates should be tied to school attendance, performance.

Jersey City will share tax abatement revenue with schools

JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City public schools will get a portion of the revenue the city receives from long-term tax abatements under an executive order issued by Mayor Steve Fulop yesterday.

Ten percent of the annual service charges collected from long-term tax breaks -- otherwise known as payments in lieu of taxes -- will be directed to the public-school district. The executive order applies to all future market-rate residential, hotel, commercial and industrial tax abatements.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... h.html#incart_2box_hudson

a good first step imo, but more can and should be done to address abbot/school funding issue.

Really? Is that so. How much revenue is the city collecting presently on the 16 acres? Here, I'll answer that for you: zero, nada, nothing.


City officials have argued that the deal isn't a giveaway, citing a revenue-sharing portion of its agreement with SciTech Scity. Once the complex earns a surplus beyond $78 million, the city would share in the revenue, initially getting 50 percent and, once the value of the city's land is paid off, 20 percent. If the project doesn't get off the ground, they say, the land reverts back to JCRA control.

My experience with appraisals is that they're bullshit from top to bottom. I was trying to refi and had banks do 2 different appraisals. I held the tape measure for 1 guy. His gross sq footage came out 20% under. The other guys was 15% under. I could see the bogus measurements in the drawings. A rowhouse with a 1 floor extension is easy, it's 2 boxes. The banks said tough shit, that's what it's worth.

What they apparently do is decide what the number should be and then fudge using the measurements and subjective numbers like GRM to make it come out. One appraisal even had the 3 methods, comp, replacement and rent, all come out within a couple of thousand of each other. What do suppose the odds were?

Now take that process, and for the reval make it even faster and shittier. Should be fun.
omg, don't get me started on appraisals. i once had an appraisal done for a refi that was so bad that the bank rejected the appraisal because it was so badly done despite the fact that the property appraised at the value i needed. why use comprabales for a house 5-15 miles away when similar houses have sold right done the street in the recent past?

Kyle Markman and Steve Lax, NJ Sierra Club Transportation Co-chairs, will talk about autonomous cars, then look at funding public transportation. Their presentation will focus on the economics of transportation and will include a history of the jitneys and why they are both good and bad for Hudson County.

Steve is retired Director of Bus Service Planning for NJ Transit, and at times had responsibility for all NJT bus routes in Hudson County. He says he’s happy to field whatever NJT questions and comments you bring in, as time allows.

This event is open to the public.

The meeting will be at 2 pm on Sunday, March 19, in the Hudson County Community College Library, 71 Sip Avenue, Jersey City, across from the Journal Square Transportation Center.

this project seems questionable to me. if the city gifts the land to the developer and the project doesn't succeed, can the deveper then sell it to a 3rd party or must he/she give it back to the city?

of course, if the project is not viabile with the gift, why even build it? there is already east river science center and roosevelt island?

It doesn't matter if it's residential, commercial, industrial or a zone for fairies. The city planners allowed for this co-existence that appears hasn't worked and intervention is needed. Cityhall has to take into consideration that they allowed and zoned a permanent residential base in the area and a transient 'drinking' crowd on week-ends has caused the problem. Once the owners of the restaurants focused more on the needs of their drinking patrons, the more they became accountable for the QOL issues thrust upon their neighbors !
maybe landlords on newark aveneue should put in some triple pane soundproof windows....maybe much stricter enforcement by bars/restaurants regarding noice and public drunkeness such as tickets for bad behavior, requiring bars to not serve inebriated people...

Police are present in those locations Fam.

DTJC is pretty serene except for some pissy drunks.



And the gauntlet of "professional fund raisers" during daylight hours... have not seen them lately but there was a group who said they were from Penn State asking for money for a number of weekends.

You walk east to west to run errands, some guy hits you up and then when you return, the same guy doesn't even remember you gave him a buck 10 minutes ago?
well, the professional fund raisers are everywhere on a well trafficked street...in manhattan, you see a pair on both sides of the street so one can't avoid walking past them...making potential eye contact

A Jersey City police officer has been suspended without pay following his arrest on a drug charge in Bayonne last week.

Anthony Newell, an 11-year veteran of the police force, was arrested on March 1 at East Fourth Street and Lord Avenue along with 30-year-old Eileen Conway, of Jersey City, according to Bayonne police.

But they're tremendously profitable. Trench poured foundation, off the shelf plan, and cheap materials. That's why they can pay so much for 50x100 teardown lots.

Fulop's mailing is so nauseating in it's self righteous "it wasn't us, they made us do it". I wish we had better, but the snakepit that is JC politics weeds out the all but the hopelessly idealistic and the players of games. People in a position to know told me well before he was mayor that Fulop was not the choirboy he seemed, but I didn't listen.
how much do those bayonne boxes costs.i would think that for just a bit more money, one could produce a much nicer building that would hold its value longer over time and get good rents.

I think I he big guy in this thread posted some of Trump's positions. He basically said that if liberals were told the Republican presidential propossed this this and this they would gladly accept it. Maybe he can weigh in?


I'm the one who posted that. It remains true.

Many liberals absolutely hate Trump for two reasons. First, it is a way to avoid admitting to themselves that they were totally 100% wrong about Trump having zero chance of winning. They said this over and over again for months. Because their brains can't process how wrong and stupid they were, as a defense mechanism, they have increased rage towards Trump. They also blame other Americans for making them look stupid (dishonestly claiming it's actually the others who are dumb).

Second, their hatred stems from pure emotion, not rationality. Trump does indeed support more liberal positions than any Republican president in modern history, but because they've already been calling him Hitler and a bigoted xenophobic rapist for months if not years, they're too far down the rabbit hole to turn back now.

They are a lost cause and they aren't worth even reaching out to. Instead, reach out to the moderates, who are more connected with reality.
dude, i'm a liberal and i never called trump a hitler. an a_shole or scumbag, yes. and many republicans were calling him that before he got elected amd many republicans thought/hoped that he would not get elected.

as for leadership, i'm shocked that it is ryan putting up a plan for healthcare eform with no input from the insurers, hospitals as per the head of one large hospital operator that appeared on bloomberg.

hillary clinton was not the most exciting candidate, but they turned her into a witch.


Please.... she is a witch, and that was clearly demonstrated when she did not even have the guts to comedown and thank her supporters on election night. Apparently she was preoccupied trashing her hotel suite.

http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=8889


You posted a great article that deserves further discussion here. There's also a great article right from NYU.

Apparently, the liberals at NYU swapped the genders of Trump and Hillary and reenacted one of the debates. The liberals were expecting it to show how Hillary got screwed over because she was a woman.

Instead, they were shocked to find the opposite. They realized they ONLY liked Hillary BECAUSE she was a woman. When her exact words and actions were played by a man, they saw what the rest of the country saw - she was a slimy used car salesman.

And they liked female Trump a LOT.

They made their own heads explode, lol.
interesting...i think i generally find trump moe likeable, i the sense that i'd rather have a beer or drink with him than hillary clinton, but i still wouldn't vote for the guy....and other than obama or brown in california, what politician isn't slimy...

it could also be that trump, like darth vader and friends, is better at tapping into fear and hatred than hillary clinton.
