For NYC and JC, this storm is a huge bust. PATH is running. You still have time to get to work before your boss gets mad.

West Side Avenue Dairy Queen, if I'm staying in town to find the tree. Got a really nice Douglas fir there a few years ago. 7', $45 IIRC.

Usually go out to tree farms in western NJ and saw one down ourselves.

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.

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.

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.

When this "round" is done, will there be closures between Grove-Newport-Hoboken to install PTC along that segment? I think during the WTC and current 33rd closures, service has continued to run on this segment. Will they have to shut it down at some point?

The fungal disease overwinters in and on seeds, soil and garden debris. Cool wet weather promotes its development, and the optimum temperature for continued growth of the spores is between 75-85 degrees F. Moisture is required for development and germination of the fungus as well as for infection of the plant.

Our average high temperatures are in that 75-85 degree window for three (almost four) months of the year. If, over time, that becomes four or five months, looks like this fungus would have more time to do its work.

Definitely a loss. I wonder if they were affected by the out-of-the-way location as well as the constant chaos of the construction zones all around it. Thanks for the heads up.


The email I received from Big Drum mentioned that they cannot renew their lease. From that, I would guess that either the rent got jacked up too high or the landlord wants them out in order to do something else with the space.

The email also mentioned a clearance sale on all framed art and stock frames. FYI.

Re: Port Authority To Jersey City - Drop Dead

The issue isn't PA ineptitude (surprise), it's national transport policy. In parts of Asia, transit companies are also developers and landlords and capture profits from the developments and businesses that benefit from the transit service. That is why the Hong Kong transit company is profitable.

In the US we don't do that, at least not for the past 70 years. We separate transit operation from the development and land use. If we were in Hong Kong, PATH would be developing the condos in JC, and/or receiving money from KHovnanian and from Gotham West and from LeFrak. The developers would pay money to the transit operator for providing the transit service that makes their own developments valuable.

Instead, transit in the US is a public utility that relies on traditional public sector revenue streams to operate.

I'm not sure why everyone's giving the PA a hard time on this.

In many parts of the country, if a developer wants to build housing or offices or something else he's going to make tens of millions of dollars on, the developer has to contribute to improvements to the roads, installing traffic signals, or other improvements to ensure that the traffic generated by his development doesn't paralyze the transportation system. Why can we not do the same here for our transit system? Developers getting filthy rich by adding hundreds of new commuter colonies should contribute to a fund that finances transit improvements. A $5000 per unit fee times 10,000 units would yield $50 million, which could do something (maybe just a small something) to help with the capacity problem. I doubt the city has engaged the PA in any of the city planning that has allowed these thousands of new units and just assumed the PATH would absorb it all. You can't expect the PA, which loses money on every train it runs to just throw away more money just to be a good pal and support the development feeding frenzy. It would be in the city's best interest to capture some of the value of this development and direct it to securing transit capacity if for no other reason than to protect the value of future development.

What I don't understand is why the ferry service is so expensive..

Interesting page History of Hudson Ferries



I know NY Waterway was getting hammered a while back when fuel prices went to the moon. I suspect the cost of diesel is probably in the top 3 expenses for running a ferry.



Even assuming electric cost for trains is 1/3 fuel, similar to analysis of plugin cars, there's still a whole of of infrastructure in tracks and tunnels that trains have that ferries don't. Trucks can outcompete trains for short haul freight, seems like a similar comparison, no? And what are ferries but buses on water, and buses are considered economical compared to rail. Failure of ferries to compete just seems counterintuitive.


No. The fuel economies are completely different. If you translate it to passenger trips per gallon ratios, they'd be completely different. The labor costs are completely different. The insurance costs are completely different. A ferry is nothing like a bus on water.
