This is not a 33% tax increase. Our tax rate has increased from 1.62 to 1.889 retroactive to the beginning of the year, which is a 16.67% increase. It's excessive for sure and I trust it will result in a change to the BOE come the next election.


why does jersey city have independent school boards?

Don't be so sure about Fulop becoming next governor. Murphy narrowly won and many people are sick and tired of failed liberal, progressive soft on crime policies.

democrats are showing that they are essentially useless when it comes to crime. the new district attorney in manhattan doesn't even want to put muggers in jail; he wants to treat as a misdemeanor. He wants a 20 year maximum jail term for murder. crazee.

great news. but I think jc leaders need to pay a visit to Williamsburg
and other parts of nyc to see how attractive buildings with character and oenhances neighborhoods. I'm getting tired of looking at all these non-descript boxes in jcQuote:

Hi,

The Journal Squared project at Journal Square from Pavonia Ave to Summit Avenue is about to begin.

I have mixed feelings: At one end, I enjoy some of the nice newer developments in the JC area. Because of them, I get to enjoy nearby restaurants, shops, parks, and just a nicer area than the current JSQ area, which is still clustered and dingy. At the other end, some nicer residential towers that are currently up and running demand rents that I, honestly, cannot afford.

This brings me to the residents about to be displaced. Where are middle income tenants like that suppose to go if they cannot afford to live in a nice building? They are being pushed out so others can enjoy the proximity to the trains leaving the current residents to find something (near transportation) with rent that is $2600+/a month or they would have to move out of JC.

Maybe it's just me but I feel there is no middle ground. It's either a place you can't afford in the luxury towers or a residence that is worse than where one currently is.

With that said, is there a place for middle income residents in JC that's decent?

This. 100%

Towers around the world in Asia, London and Dubai are really artful and pushing architecture forward.

And don't get me started how that JC waterfront could have been planned so much better with a world class promenade. What a wasted opportunity facing the incredible NYC skyline.
i agree. not much forward thinking in jersey city; i guess jersey city just leaves that for manhattan and brooklyn

Why not pack a little something to eat, bring a kite or a soccer ball and enjoy the breeze down by the water?
Development of one kind will surely bring development of another. The merchant class is relentless in pursuit of monies, and they'll slip into every little loophole.

Keep it green.
so true. i just wish there were more large trees so i could get some shade

no surprise that people are leavng nyc/jersey city area. in addition to high housing costs and taxes, i think people are getting fed up with politicians' failure to tackle crime. i frequently see drug users doing needles on the street; soft sentences being meted out to criminals attacking & mugging people, etc.

Interesting article. No doubt many more people may be working from home..but social distancing could mean that companies may not significantly reduce square footage since they may require more square foot/spacing between employees. It will be interesting

On today's briefings, Trump had a timeline showing important dates. On January 17, 2020, there was no reported US cases. By the time he closed on January 31, 2020, there was some cases but no deaths. Slow...how, especially when the WHO is saying it is not transmitted from human to human?

Since whe did the US follow the WHO. Doesn't the US spend billion$ for the best damn intelligence in the world. LOL


Then why pay WHO $450 million a year from the US? Of course the US should follow an international health organization. Perhaps there should be an investigation.
perhaps there should be an investigation? butmuch does the cdc costs? didn't they botch the covid test? let's put the kibosh on the cdc?
