anyone else noticing the JC Zipcar fleet shrinking? and the cars they do have are mostly premium / expensive?

I used to be able to get a last-minute car on a weekday. no more.


The fleet is shrinking and there are mostly premium cars "living" in downtown JC. No cars at all in Journal Square anymore. I've been using zipcar far less recently than I had in the past, because I don't need a BMW for a trip to Trader Joe's. I tweeted zipcar about this before and their response is along the lines of "oh sry lol"

Not far from the light rail.

http://www.traderjoes.com/announcement/hoboken-nj-opening-2017


It's 1.7 miles from the Hoboken stop and 1.5 miles from the Second Street stop - a good 30 minute walk.


or you could get off at the 9th St stop and hoof it from there, I just saved you half the walk


Ohhh! That's great - I didn't check that stop - silly me!


Pro Tip! Save another 1/10 mile by going to Lincoln Harbor instead.

Under contract, and need to get an inspection and oil tank sweep. Anyone have recommendations for a good, thorough, professional inspector and/or oil tank scanning company? Or, alternatively, any you'd recommend avoiding?

I'm the same. I stopped by Sunday evening around 7:00 and the place was busy but not crowded. At checkout there were two people in front of me on line.

Will definitely go back to try the ramen bar and scoop up some sweets. This place may save me a few trips to Mitsuwa.

Also, it should be noted that current JSQ / 33rd St trains run with 7 cars, not 8. So, if the station platform lengthening to 10-cars ever happens, it would represent a 40% capacity increase.

Regardless, I don't see that project ever getting off the ground...

You, uh, do know it's already in progress, right?

Part of the Harrison Station rebuild is to increase capacity to 10 cars.

It will take years, but it's already happening.


It's happening on the NWK-WTC line. Bodhipooh is saying it won't happen on he 33rd line for ages, and I agree.

Track condition on PATH, I guess.

And then also PATH cross-honoring NJT passengers because of the NJT derailment yesterday.

My understanding is Federal regs preclude PATH trains running more frequently until the signal system has been updated. So it seems a fine point to say the signal upgrade is not mandated. But mandate or no, more reliable and frequent PATH service is badly needed.


Not to get too in the weeds, but the mention of "mandates" reminded me. There are two systems being installed here. One is required whether PATH wants to increase capacity or not, the other is needed to get the capacity to run more trains:

1. Positive Train Control (PTC) is required by federal law. All passenger and freight railroads in the U.S. must have PTC installed and operational by 2018. PTC addresses safety issues, but does not significantly impact capacity.

2. Communications-based train control (CBTC) will allow trains to run closer together, thereby increasing the effective capacity of the lines.

The signal work PATH has been doing for the past two years or so has been to install the systems for both. Here's a cute video the PA posted on youtube last year about the signal upgrades:

Incidents like this that I've witnessed usually happen when the attacked individual (allegedly) messed with someone else's man/woman. Often baseball bats and/or bottles are used.

Same at the Conti School. Two districts vote here and there's one machine for each district. Over an hour wait right now.

Never had to wait more than 4-5 minutes in the past, even in the record breaking 2008 election. This is a surprise.

One by one they will. It's been happening downtown. Five old vinyl-clad houses on my downtown block have been refaced (or just had the vinyl removed to show the brick beneath) in the past 3-4 years. Just that made a huge difference on the appearance of the block overall. I'd rather wait and see each old home spruced up than see he neighborhood wiped clean and these ugly temporary boxes pop up everywhere.

Wrong. They had always been there. They were just brought back after the Sandy damage.

Deal with it. No state gets to tell another state what flag to use. A state flag has meaning and significance to its citizens. In time, they [the people of Mississippi] may choose to alter their flag. That day has not yet arrived.

Quote:

This National Park after all is in Jersey City - which is one of the most diverse cities on earth - so we don't need this redneck flag.


WRONG. Liberty State Park is NOT a NATIONAL park. It is a STATE park.


Quoting because this is the correct answer.

Also, just to be painfully technical, Mississippi's flag is essentially a combination of the first and second confederate national flags. Georgia's current state flag is based on the first confederate national flag. Alabama's is based on confederate battle flags. So this is an issue that spreads beyond just Mississippi.

I recently had to take a detour and was using the WAZE app. I've lived Downtown for the last six years and rarely go to other parts of JC. This navigation app took me away from the turnpike and up Ocean Ave to 440. I've got to tell you, the state of our city is not well. I seriously wonder if most people who live downtown are like me and just never think about the rest of the city.

I was pretty sketched out and wanted to run red lights to get the hell out of there. WAZE does not consider the safety of the neighborhood, it just gets you from A to B the fastest way.

I was saddened by how divided our city is and thinking about what needs to be done to help the areas of JC that are in need of serious help. I think if more people, like myself, actually got out to see the poverty in this town we'd come together to make all of JC a place to be proud of. It clearly appears all of the energy from our government is going into Downtown and JSQ

It's pathetic that a traffic APP on my IPhone was the one thing that got me into another area of the city I would otherwise never think of going.

This post is only meant to get downtowners off their butts and check out what is going on just minutes away. I'm totally guilty of living in my little bubble as well. We need to find a way unify the city. It's shocking what poverty and sadness is out there.

I'm looking to volunteer or do whatever I can, to help those of all of Jersey City. I'm proud to be a resident of Jersey City and that includes all disctricts, not just downtown.



U for real?

Cause u can't be for real.
