8th & W Hamilton Undercover Arrest
#1
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Anyone know what was just going on at 8th & W Hamilton around 11PM tonight?

Heard some yelling, then saw a guy jump out of an SUV in plain clothes, pulling a gun out and yelling at someone to get on the ground.

Within 2 or 3 minutes there were several police cars. Cops walking up and down 8th St looking for something (someone?) else.

Tried to listen to the scanner and heard something about shots fired.

Hopefully they'll serve breakfast. For some reason a lot of the NJ mall Chick-fil-A's I've been to don't. I need my chicken biscuit fix.

I've been talking with Candus about this exact same intersection since October of last year. How hard is it to get a stop sign up at an intersection of two roads at a park?!?
I've been copied on several of the emails Candus has sent to the Department of Public Works and
Division of Traffic & Transportation and I can safely say it is not Candus' fault. The department is just not responding and doesn't seem to care at all. It's ridiculous.

There currently is no stop sign at the intersection of West Hamilton Place and Pavonia. I find this dangerous and absurd. I opened a request with the RRC on May 3rd. It is currently under assessment and I was told it can take up to 6 months for an assessment, but mine request was given "priority" since it was next to a park. Four months later I am still baffled what the problem could be as to why that intersection doesn't deserve a stop sign or two immediately. Am I wrong to think that there should at least be one stop sign at that intersection, probably two? The fact that there is not stop sign at all is asking for an accident. Please be careful when crossing those streets.

Does anyone have any updates on this place?

We tried to make an appointment to order our daughter's birthday cake, but got a generic answering machine message and an auto-response email saying they were no longer taking orders. Busy or permanently closed?

Trash/recycling pickup getting worse?

I can't be the only one noticing how much worse the garbage/recycling pickup has gotten in the past couple of weeks, can I?
We've been bagging our trash/recyclables the same way for the last 8 years with no pickup problems, and the past 2 or 3 weeks every pickup they decide to leave a different bag.
It's not just us either, all down the street the next morning I notice random bags left or bins left full.

Well as they stand, they're nothing more than a bad paving job. And since that is consistent with the rest of the city, no one notices.
They'll have to paint stripes or something to bring attention to them.

Ok I take it back. It is definitely a hump. I see cars bouncing over then as they fly by. Maybe they'll still get painted with yellow stripes or something to make them obvious to the drivers?

Interesting, I'm actually talking about the south side. So you're telling me the new asphalt (which I now see is maybe a half inch higher than the old asphalt) is the actual speed hump? If you are correct... completely stupid. People are flying over it like its nothing. Possibly because it is nothing?

Can someone explain to me what's going on with the speed hump installation in HP?

They put up No Parking signs for this week, on Monday they scraped out large rectangular sections of the asphalt where the speed humps were to be installed, on Wednesday they filled the rectangular sections back in, put up Speed Hump signs, and took down the No Parking signs.

So, as it stands the asphalt is just back where it was and we have speed hump signs. Are they actually installing the humps? I'm confused.

Anyone complaining about the stop at 8th and McWilliams hasn't been paying attention.
If you read Candice's Traffic Calming presentation it is mentioned that all around HP they want to put all-way stops, speed humps and raised pedestrian crossings to slow down traffic.
It doesn't matter that the intersection has clear sight lines, it's to control the speed that people fly around the park.
I'm very glad that they have added that stop sign. Do I think it's easily viewable as it stands right now? Absolute not. You can barely see it. The speed humps and painted STOP on the road will need to go into place before anyone really notices it.

What's kind of interesting is that not only are some people still flying right through the stop signs, but when someone actually does stop, there's often someone right behind them honking.

Obviously the speed humps, painted lines, and (hopefully) painted "STOP" on the road will help people learn about the new traffic patterns.

PS - Thank you Candice so much for getting this done.

Speed humps are next!
In HP there are emergency no parking signs for next week to install them.
Still not sure why the forever missing stop sign at Pavonia and W Hamilton can't get installed, but progress is progress.

Re: Unpaved sidewalk
#18
Just can't stay away

There's nothing wrong with wanting a sidewalk paved if you've given the neighbor ample time. There was one down the street from me that was left unpaved for a little over a year. It was frustrating in the rain, since it was impossible to walk through, and no one could easily clear it during the snow.

I went through the following steps in the following order and the neighbor took care of it within about a month (because their inspection was complete).

1) Report it on the Resident Response Center.

If you don't hear anything after a couple of weeks...

2) Call one or all of the following (I got redirected a few times to the correct department, so I don't remember which one it ended up being):
Building Department - 201.547.5055
Building Code and Enforcement - 201.547.4825 (I think it was this one)
Engineering - 201.547.4470

If there is a building permit on their door or window, you can refer to the number on that, otherwise you'll need the exact address. They can tell you when the next inspection is scheduled and if everything is complete, can enforce sidewalk paving.

Just like I did when I got a red light ticket in the mail while taking my pregnant wife to the hospital (turned right on red without making a complete stop).

You go to court and show proof that you were in the hospital that day.

Its not as convenient as telling a cop, but I also didn't get delayed by a cop stopping me that night.

The officer made sure I was ok before turning back to the driver and reaming her out a little more and then letting her go.

I spoke with the officer afterwards, thanking him. And just mentioning how bad the intersection is. And he brought up several others that are just as bad. He even told me that on his commute to work in his civilian car he has people run stop signs all the time in front of him, but when he's in his patrol car, nothing.

I asked him if they could set up cars sitting at some of these intersections, and he told me he'd love to, but its Jersey City and there are so many more pressing things that they are doing.

Anyway, I thanked him for helping and left happy that the driver at least got yelled at by a cop. Maybe she'll think twice next time.

Just kicked the heck out of a car that blew through the stop sign at 8th and Jersey almost taking me out. A cop was standing at the intersection and actually ran after the car to get it to stop and yell at the driver. Let's hope this kind of JCPD action continues.

Either the upper management is now telling them to look busy (which is what I find amusing), or these workers have the time and ability to do this work and should have been doing it all along (in which case they were taking advantage of the system themselves).

Hey parkman,

What are your best tools for removing graffiti?

I've heard WD-40 works on metal, I don't have a pressure washer so not sure what would take it off of sidewalks, and I'm assuming only painting over will work on the gazebo, etc. Also heard the magic erasers might work?

The info was appreciated John, but the Mayor jabs weren't really needed. Not everything will be perfect from his first day in office, but in my opinion Fulop is definitely the right direction for the city. I'm just trying to bring attention to an issue that I'm noticing so that it can be fixed.

Can I go out and clean the graffiti off the park?
#26
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Graffiti is getting bad in Hamilton Park and I'm willing to just go out and scrub and paint to clean it up but can I get in trouble for doing that? I know the park's department is supposed to handle it.

I've tried to go through the motions to get them to clean it up (and I've detailed it below if you care to read), but so far I'm noticing one piece has lead to two, and as of tonight quite a few.

Anyway, I'd love to help clean it up. Just let me know if that's ok.

Here's the details to my request via the Resident Response Center:

August 22, requested graffiti clean up on a sign in Hamilton Park.
August 26, received this response: "The crew checked all the signs in the park."
I took a walk around the park that night and not only did they not remove the graffiti from the sign that I requested, but since I posted on the 22nd and the date that they checked on the 26th, there were several other signs in the park that had graffiti and a new "er" tag on the walkway.
I submitted all of the pictures that night.
August 29th, received this response: "Our graffiti crew is cleaning the graffiti in the park today."
I took a walk around the park that night and they removed it from the one initial sign (mostly) but ignored all of the other signs and the "er" tag on the walkway.
September 10th, besides the one initial sign being cleaned up, the other graffiti is still there and now "er" has tagged the entire park (gazebo, other sidewalk location, and entrance to park).

Oh also, if you're still reading this was my other experience with the Resident Response Center:

August 22, requested replacement stop sign at the corner of W Hamilton and Pavonia (been missing for a while). Upon completing the form, it said that they would be out to evaluate the location and if one was needed they would have it up within a certain amount of days (I think it was like 10, can't remember, but it wasn't weeks or longer).

The request hasn't been updated since I submitted it.

I thought this new center was all about accountability and "response" time to the citizen. Oh well.

That's amazing. You'll have to share your route with me. Where are you leaving from? You no longer cut through Hoboken? It takes me about 15 minutes just to get through Hoboken alone.


Just take Paterson Plank Rd north and cut back over after you pass most of Hoboken (around 14th St).
From Hamilton Park takes me about 25 minutes.
