If its new downtown then it's overtaxed, I'm overtaxed!

Just to clarify, it has nothing to do with when you bought at all, just where and what. Sales DO NOT change the assessment, but condo-ing creates a "new property" that gets a new assessment. Pre-88 properties that have not been majorly renovated or condo converted have not had their assessments changed in 27 years. If it's Downtown, then it's probably under taxed, if it's in another ward, it's likely overtaxed.

So a new property or conversion with no abatement should be paying around 2.4% of value, $2m Downtown brownstones are often paying 1%, and older houses in Greenville can be paying 3-4%.

Still so pissed that Fulop stopped this. Complete BS! If People can't afford to pay the fair value tax on their homes then they need to figure out a different solution for their housing. I don't see how it's fair that people who moved to JC in the last 10 years or so that don't have abatements should have to pay full value while the rest piss and moan they can't afford it. Suck it up it's f#$%ing America and you pull your share no freebies at the expense of others!

Maybe the locals aren't as educated or qualified. If they were they would probably be sought after. It's capitalism and darwin. You want it? Earn it, there is not entitlement.
I doubt they didn't hire Americans as a rule, that would actually hinder their ability to be competitive.

The Pediatric dentist and the dog sitting place are well done. Also the work/share place indiegrove has a nicely designed aesthetic. It's too bad about that mirror letters of the salon that opened there. The gaudiness hurts my eyes, would be more appropriate in other parts of the city.
Nice to see that terrible looking barber shop close, "Cintron's Place" Hopefully the new store Cintron's plans to open will not look like a condemned hell hole.
It will be a happy day when we finally lose those generic discount shops and the dollar store.

I agree that you cannot be protected from everything but the wasted guy in the canoe is a bad example. He created the dangerous situation himself. Had the canoe rental company not properly maintained the canoe and that led to him being injured or killed than they should be liable.
I'm not sure why everyone is so shocked by this. By your thinking why do we even have seatbelts or airbags? Hell we should get rid of all law! It can be Ferguson, wouldn't that be fun?

In Hoboken's Frank Sinatra Park there's actually nothing stopping kids from walking right down to the water or falling off the edge of the amphitheater area. Why? It's reality. Life isn't a theme park. At some point you have to learn to not walk off the freakin edge of a dock.
Resized Image

The lawsuits by people who expect the world to protect them from themselves are mind blowing. A guy rented a canoe on the Delaware, got plastered, fell out and drowned. His family sued because they felt the canoe livery should have had lifeguards posted along the river. They won. Out west a guy was hiking in a national park with his kid on his shoulders and stumbled. He sued saying the TRAIL SHOULD HAVE BEEN PAVED!! This is what it's come to...

She rightfully deserves it. The property owner displayed gross negligence in not properly securing a dangerous hazard, in a public park no less. I would venture to guess that the hazard was there for quite a while too. Making it that much worse. We need to hold those accountable who fail to properly maintain public areas.
Let me tell you too, it can be a lot less than that and an insurance company with settle in order to not be taken to court.
Old lady had a bag of chips fall on her head in a grocery store, claims migraines and other aliments, worth at least a couple grand just so the insurance company isn't dragged into legal costs.
It is what it is.

There are a lot of hazards due to the lack of maintenance on the waterfront walkways all around DTJC in Paulus Hook and Newport. I always wonder when i see a huge hole who is responsible for the upkeep, city or private property owner? My guess is the city because private owners would be insane to open themselves to that type of liability, insurers would take issue as well.

I believe the original post asked for "any real insight on PS 16". I think that if you do not have any personal experience with the school you should keep your own (uninformed) thoughts to yourself. I do have a child at this school and we have been very happy with our experience there. I love the diverse, neighborhood feel of it. The principal and CPA are wonderful and super-involved. I think this school will just keep getting better as parents continue to become more and more involved in the community.


Do you live in PH? Or does your child come from another zone/district? I'm curious: what % of the kids would you say live in the PH area?


In the lower grades of PreK, K, first grade and maybe even second 100% of the kids are from Paulus hook/ps16 zone. The majority of PreK kids from paulus hook are bussed to another school as ps16 only has 30 spots for 4 year olds.

Good Luck with getting in Pre-k, it's a lottery system and I think they have 30 something seats for the whole neighborhood. They will bus they extra kids to the shit parts of town.

I think we are really splitting hairs between the old Rustique, the new Rustique and PHBOP. I think we can all agree they are great pizza's. It's brushing the height of pizza snobbery.
One thing all pizza snobs should be able to agree on is that John's tastes like absolute garbage. I refuse to order out of dine in there ever again. Pizza taste (which is horrible, think ketchup on naan with polly-o string cheese) aside, the delivery and dine in service was horrendous.

Rustique Pizza is just as good if not better they are slightly less expensive and they don't charge a delivery fee as Paulus Hook did. Best part of Rustique is that they deliver to Paulus Hook.
Even though I'm right around the block from PHBOP I still order from Rustique. Save about $5 on a pie delivery.

Not even taking into account that Fulop would have a much more informed and widespread polling/testing method and professional firm working on his analysis, this website is clearly shoestring budget and poorly done. It's kind of like when you get spam that has typos and misused words. You know it's not a serious attempt.
...and really who cares if Fulop does want to be Governor or Senator? I think he'd do a better than Christie or Booker. I don't blame him and I'd be proud to say that he was the Mayor of JC back in the day. I believe that he will be a political success and not go down in a blaze of drunken useless shame like the last Mayor.
I think that if he runs for another term as Mayor we should consider ourselves lucky to have such an effective and efficient action taker in office.

Someone spent money to buy a domain name and host the web site. Perhaps, someone paid for the web design. Why would anyone one do this unless they are part of the Fulop team? I still don't hear Fulop denying he is running for governor.

I think you are missing the point. This post and the link to it have absolutely no link to Fulop or any ambitions he may or may not have in the future. It's simply a random petition that someone started that 16 people signed (likewise probably hoodwinked by the original, sarcastic poster) and is now being used by his opponents to create false criticism against him for potentially desiring higher office.
Political bullshit basically

I bet all of the Sunday morning talk shows will be all about the AG pick and not the failure of the Dems to get elected because of Obama?s horrible presidential record.

They have done this type of deflection in the past. Rahm Emanuel was a genius at it.

What candidates are in support of more access to pre-k in your local school in underserved Downtown area? Whoever supports that gets my vote. I will not vote for anyone Fulop endorses due to his position of being an obstacle to increased pre-k downtown. Bussing 3 and 4 year olds is ridiculous.

He certainly doesn't shovel the snow off the sidewalks around "his" property. I have always wondered if he gets fined for that. The city did make a half hearted attempt to clear it once or twice last year after community complaints.

What a dumbass this Morrill is! She's really trying to blame speeders for damaging their cars? If you go the speed limit in certain vehicles you will absolutely bottom out on that hump! I would love to see what regulations she says that the city is following with the 8" height! I'm not anti speed hump or traffic control, I'm anti-moron. Hey moron Morrill, maybe if the city would paint some warning lines on the hump right after they make it that would help, do you think? Is not painting the warning stripes on the hump also in compliance with the mystery regulations?

Not to mention the shaved down hump now likes like S*%T! Guess we just can't have anything nice or anyone with common sense in JC Government.



"As for the height of the speed bumps, Morrill said "They are high within regulation in order to deter speeding and make sure pedestrians are safe. We are protecting people, not cars."
