Here is what I experienced on Cinco de mayo living around Newark Ave.

I walked up through the pedestrian plaza around 9:30PM going to to Newark and Coles to check in on a cat. I was cat sitting. Already at that time there were drunks all over the pedestrian plaza.

On my way back to Mercer and Marin, where I live, I walked down Columbus hoping to avoid the drama on Newark Ave around 10:30pm. On Columbus, I ran into a woman, bursting out of her clothes, vomiting all over the sidewalk. Her boyfriend, or guy she was with, ran away from her and into traffic on Columbus and almost caused an accident. Great guy.

I get back to my apartment to find two guys in sombreros pissing on the side of my building. They could have gone into Krispy Kreme and urinated there into a proper toilet.

The neighborhood has become like a college town. I get that it was cinco de mayo and whatnot that night. But please... The drunks on Newark ave are spilling over into the surrounding areas. Now with Uber, these people are coming into town from all over the place and have no respect for the neighbors.

Things seem to be feeling more and more like Hoboken. I'm not trying to sound like a crotchey old F^&%, but I see way too much puke on the sidewalk these days when going to work!


This is what the newbie youngsters wanted. Well, they're not gonna be newbies and youngsters very much longer and they'll see the light when this sh*t affects their QoL. Congrats J.C. you've hit the big time. Ordinariness.

1. Uber is fantastic. The amount of drunk drivers there are around here already is staggering. If you don't believe me, stay up until last call at 2:30. Sit on the street and watch the people leave at 3, then get into cars and weave their way up out of town. Pretty horrifying.

2. Eh, hey, so it goes.
WTH.. people who drink and drive should be arrested on the spot and have their licenses revoked.

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.

LAST EVENING ANY PROSPECT FOR ADDING AN ADDITIONAL 16 ACRES TO JC TAX RATE-ABLES WAS ELIMINATED BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS.

Councilwoman at Large Joyce Watterman
Councilman at Large Daniel Rivera
Ward A (Greenville) Councilman Frank Gajewski
Ward E (Downtown) Councilwoman Candice Osborne
Ward F (Bergen/Lafayette) Councilman Jermaine Robinson



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?
