Re: Palisade between Griffith & Bowers ?

It's a great neighborhood, with a great neighborhood association - Riverview - if there is a problem with noise, crime, dog poo in the park, ie.: the regular stuff of most neighborhoods.

Ogden Avenue to the east is one of the best streets in the city, you have a great park with a skyline view, an elevator down the cliffs to Hoboken and lightrail a few blocks away - cool ethnic restaurants, not fancy but reliable on Central Avenue to the west which also has most basics (and great dollar stores). Transportation rocks, both to NYC and local - the jitneys run downtown every 3 minutes.

There are slumlords here, like everywhere - but you can get bigger spaces for less money, more light and it's even cooler in the summer - we're 10 stories up and get a great river breeze.

Yay! Cool - also Chapter 202 Junkyards - a good case can be made that these trucks are used as "premises" ... Thanks, really good link for information in general.

I was hoping someone knew what ordinances had been passed, laws used that had been used effectively or an area of city gov. that might be responsive.

Heck, we have restrictions against boomboxes - there has to be something on these unlicensed, and often illegal, scrappers!

For your edification, the use of [sic!] relates to the following:

Those scrappers are just trying to make a living - for the most part they are good because they help things get recycled.

On the other hand, I would hate to live across from those houses (pictured behind the truck) with their front yards turned into a parking areas! Now that is UGLY, and it's FOREVER!


Aw! Nothing is forever! Perhaps someday people with your level of sophistication, intelligence and vision will buy those houses and restore the parking lots to green and flowery front yards worthy of being in the same city as.... you!

As for the scrappers - as others have pointed out - some of that junk isn't scrap. Some of it is liberated, and some - as I've seen - picked up with the notes still on them "Still works! Please help yourself" ( a washing machine) and "Free Bike - needs chain." These are things well meaning folk put out to "recycle" as useful items. I grew up in Manhattan and have lived here long enough to have found really cool, and useful, things on many a trash night. No more! These guys get there first and often leave a mess behind. This is good?

So may the scenic [sic!] junkyards find their way to your block, and home! Cheers!

This lists a good number of local Heights groups, along with other info. I don't know how up to date the site is, tho.

Save the Palisades

Senic Junkyards on Wheels!

How delightful! Junkyards that come to you!

If this stuff was in front of my house, I'd get slapped with fines so fast my head wouldn't have time to spin - yet this guy gets to park on the street, cruise around the city in his other vehicle, and unload the stuff into this Junkmobile! Usually in front of residential properties.

The police can't do anything unless he sells items, or is in the process of unloading onto the street. NID can't do anything, unless it smells, or so I am told.

Resized Image

They are all over the Heights, and proliferating in other areas. Has anyone had any luck with this? I don't begrudge the guy the right to make a living in Jersey City, as I do, but I have an overhead and taxes to pay. So I pay taxes to overlook this!? Yikes!

Welcome to Jersey City! Paris on the Hudson!*

I had the displeasure of getting out of a lease with Vision Group after they bought the condo on Ogden I was renting.

Their new lease had riders which took all away most of the basic tenants rights in New Jersey [see: http://www.lsnjlaw.org/ ]

I'd be cautious in dealings with them, buying or renting.
