Re: Mayor Healy and many Jersey City residents speak out against the design for the new 9/11 memorial

I hope this thing gets stopped. Has anybody realized that the design is flawed? It's suppose to focus out vision onto the empty hole left behind by the wtc. Great. It will do that...for about 2 or 3 years. Then when the Freedom Tower is built we will then be focusing on that. No more empty sky.

Maybe if they had open public meetings someone would have thought about that.

I used to have a friend that lived at Metropolis Towers, (gregory park). Lets all remember that our dear friend George "The Beacon" Filopolis bought this place about 5 years ago. He came through will all these promises to fix it up and make it luxury housing and build a 3rd tower and a tower for parking. Never happened. His work was a lick and a prayer. All the renovation was sub-par and quickly starting falling apart again. Its a real shame, cause the location really cant be beat.

OK. So I got 2 feet. I'm scrambling here to try and save the carpet....from the last flood, I re-carpeted with commercial carpet w/o padding. I should be able to find some one to come suck the water out and dry the carpet.
Any suggestions. Im searching all over the internet. HELP !
Who can I call? Thanks. [quote]

I have researched french drains and I think this is the only way to go. The theory, so Im told, is to manage the water flow not control it. Check valves will only do so much, but if you have water coming in through the floor or walls you have to go with the French Drain. 5k to 10k depending on where you go. (Word to the wise...stay away from Mid-Atlantic...very high slime factor.) It baffles me that we live in the modern age and Jersey City can not provide even the most basic of services for civilization...sewer control. Im on the bandwagon for whoever gets the ball rolling. Something HAS to be done. And by the way....everybody get ready:

Re: Why does JC have financial problems - Start here

Yes, I agree. But when I read that article, what really struck me was this: This type of behavior is so common, so accepted, so prevalent...that they dont even consider it inappropriate or unethical. Therefore, why wouldn't they talk about it openly in the local paper? It would never occur to them that there is anything wrong here. These bozo's just dont get it. And here we have, ladies and gentleman, the very definitive example of our great "Culture of Corruption". Welcome to Jersey.

Now, consider these things when we all show up Wednesday night. Do you really think that our little righteous voices will be heard? Or if heard, that they will made a difference? Jersey City has and always will be...up for sale. Billions talk. Remember George Philopolis? Look at Lloyd Goldman...he even tried to burn people alive, and they didnt even slow him down. (hmmm...wonder what ever happened to those 2 employees of his that were arrested...) scary isnt it?

Listen, Ive been there when groups have tried to sway the city council. They come with their signs and crowds. The 111 artist packed the place. And, sadly, where are they now? If you want to be heard the numbers have to be great and the noise has to be loud. Forget your 'appropriateness' at the door. Yell. Chant. Clap. Get Mad. Really really mad. They are stealing our city again. Our pot holes are canyons, our streets are becoming war zones again, the trash is building up and the stink is rising. Parts of our city are becoming drug supermarkets. The homeless are everywhere. And the city should be addressing these issues with they money from taxes of those that are developing the waterfront. My little taxes are not a drop in the bucket...but they sure love to stick it to me. Doesnt it get you mad that your paying and they arent?

Im telling you...get mad, get loud or get ready to pay.
