But, if indeed this is a problem in your neck of the woods, here is some good news for you: residents of developments which have parking (even if the parking is not free) are not eligible for on-street parking. So, once the rules go into effect, all those residents of high rises with parking decks/lots will have to figure a place to park, or risk getting ticketed. At $100/ticket, paying for monthly parking will be a relative bargain.


I can't wait for them to zone "Soho West". Those buildings all have parking but few seem to use it, making the streets a parking lot, complete with cars stopping in middle of Coles and people walking in the middle of the street. I think what makes it worse than any normal parked up street is the lots without sidewalks, The city should make the owners build sidewalks now that there's a ton of pedestrians, before someone gets hurt. I"ve now seen a woman pushing her double stroller in the street several times, presumably to and from poor overused HP.


The Powerhouse District is just now getting sidewalks, once the developers built them. It's been next to impossible to get the city to plan ahead and get safe pathways established while asking new residents to live in a transitional area in "luxury" apartments. We might have one sidewalk per block but access to the elevated platform/sidewalks is sketchy.

I stand corrected, but isn't it Healy's term as mayor? Was it actually Fulop's nomination from Ward E??

Tax records show Shuster owns this property.

http://taxes.cityofjerseycity.com/ViewPay?accountNumber=10009

$1,150,000 each, according to proposed assessment - bought in Mar & June 2017 (before or after condemned?).

I walk by this every day and couldn't believe it hadn't been demolished. The cracks on the east side of the building were huge, the center of the building was buckling.

I don't think this is a part of the KRE development coming to Marin between Bay and First. A 38-story tower will go up at the corner of First/Marin.

I have a PILOT. The next time it goes up to 40% will be in 2020 (expires 2030). I was under the assumption that the new property assessment would be applied then, not when the abatement expires.

There are 19 charging outlets - only one super charger. They are not going away. Hopefully the city will work on getting more around the entire city.

I think you are definitely onto something.

The situation across from The Oakman and ArtHouse has definitely gotten worse since they painted spots on the road, despite the overall narrowing of the road.


So Reverse Angle parking - which has cars backing into a space, rather than pulling in head first - solves this problem. It gives those cars great visibility of oncoming cars and bikes/peds. We need more of this on streets that can support it.


Traffic & Engineering's initial 2014 renderings had reverse angle parking for all diagonal parking on north side of First St. Shuster chose to ignore and striped how they wanted it. Traffic & Engineering caved and didn't pursue or demand that they re-stripe.

PADNA is not against the EV charging stations. We only asked the city to allow half of the stations to be shared with public parking. Eight spaces are EXCLUSIVE charging only. And more will become exclusive as the demand increases.

There is one Supercharger station on First Street between Marin Blvd. and Provost Street. It's been there well over a year. In the middle of the block.

I would pay for the installation of a charging station in my area of Bergen Hill. Since there is power at the top every Utility Pole, the development of a location is pretty easy. I am in the process of talking to the City. Tesla is also announcing the location of a Supercharger (charges a Tesla to a full charge in under 30 min) by the end of this year.

Example of a high rise holding out spaces for commercial use for retail/businesses in building. Garage Parking is handed over to an outside company, i.e., LAZ.

110 First Street - 20 spaces for Car Rental company, 6+ spaces for building employees, 6+ spaces for WADLO child/school employees, EV charging station, 20+ reserved spaces, allows daily commuter parking, monthly parking for residents and non-residents.

Un-reserved parking spaces FULL from floor 1-6, 7th floor spotty and half of 8th floor has car rental and employee parking with a few un-reserved parking spaces occupied.

Parking on First Street and Warren Street is mostly people from 110 First and Modera, parking with no permits either because of lack of enforcement of Zone 4 permit parking during the day and they can park legally from M-F 4p-10a overnight and all weekend. So if they drive to work during the day - they can park for free at night and weekends.

No one from this building can claim there are no spaces available, but the parking garage is definitely not empty like everyone seems to say on JCList.

Re: Private Business Taking Public Spaces for Valet Parking

I would think it's strictly pick up and drop off. No one is "parking" for a substantial amount of time. Parking would happen in the parking garage, valet only? I wonder if guests can park their own car in the garage.

Before it was "No Parking Anytime" this entire block are the evil "reserved parking" parking spaces - non-residents (or residents) buy a monthly parking pass, enforced M-F. If you don't have a monthly placard - parking officers will print out a ticket quickly and possibly boot your car too. Public can park on this block at night and over the weekends.

PADNA's view of the First Street EV stations is positive, but the Electric Vehicle public has not arrived to use the spaces. Jersey City government has introduced these ordinances to clarify and enforce the exclusive EV spaces, as well as acknowledging that a majority of EV spaces remain empty 24/7 over the past three years. The EV spaces are not going away, but will share the EV spaces with zone permit and public parking until the need arrives. As EV charging demand increases, spaces will return to exclusive EV charging only. Until that time, the general public will use the unused spaces.

Many want to charge near their home. Wouldn't it make sense to create more public charging stations spread throughout the city, not all in one place? This way people won't have to travel far to charge. I would be interested in hearing who would like public EV charging stations on their street. Any volunteers?

Embarrassing question. I recently began taking the WTC PATH to the 4/5 train. I can't seem to find the underground passage from the downtown subway to the Oculus. I don't have an issue the other way, from the PATH to the 4/5 train. I never see any workers around to ask. Help!


On north end of downtown platform (back of the train) go down the stairs as if going to the uptown train, walk towards uptown platform, look around for the station turnstiles and you see sign for WTC/PATH - follow that and you should find the exit to the long corridor to Occulus.

Electric vehicle sharing - called "Maven" over on First Street between Marin and Provost. There are only a few cars available, but with demand they would expand.

Warren Street south of C Columbus is earlier (used to be reserved parking only, but now also Zone 4 permit weekdays). The times for street sweeping on the reserved parking streets have been 6a for a long time.

Warren Street north of C Columbus is 8a-10a.

I heard that Zip Electric cars on First Street are over - Not a reliable vendor for Shuster Development. They aren't saying who, but they're in negotiations to bring in a "better" electric car rental service.

The electric charging stations are still available for charging personal vehicles.

... no it isn't. Every single building in that little area is first floor commercial / industrial.


Of course there are businesses in 150 Bay - it's a mixed use building. BUT it does have 90 residential units on the top floors. It is a concrete structure. The sound that travels within the building from Club Transmission is terrible. The residents - all the way up to the top floor above the club - can hear when it opens, identify songs being played and will finally be able to sleep without sleep aids once it's closed for the night at 3a. It's not that it patrons can be noisy outside the club; no one complains on the street that the club music is too loud - BUT it was not properly soundproofed in the interior and the bass of the nightclub music travels throughout the interior structure.

If 150 Bay was an exclusively commercial building, there would be no tenants at night complaining of the sound/bass issues until 3a.

But Newmark, the landlord, has rented this space out to Club Transmission and had no idea that it was not sound-proofed properly. No respect for its residents. IF your downstairs neighbor threw dance club parties every weekend with the music blasting through the columns/walls and floors - you'd complain to the landlord, the people making the noise and eventually calling the police. This happens EVERY weekend. Newmark recently told the tenants that it would pay for half of the cost to soundproof it properly. They are aware of the problems now. BUT until the issue is fixed the residents in this building take sleep aids, turn on the white noise machines or finally get some peace and quiet when Transmission closes at 2a weekdays and 3a on the weekends.
