Re: Daniel Wrieden aka 'Queer Eye For The Historic House Guy'

Home away from home


Dan Wrieden's personal life is not the issue. He is a city employee not the "soup nazi". He has no statutory power to issue violations. He should not be doing this job period.
The overwhelming case against him is that he does not show respect toward the publc. The nonsense of him not returning calls, making up the rules as he goes etc. should be reported to his boss in Planning as well as the Mayor's office. Of course when you consider the insidious corruption within this administration its unlikely anything will get done. The hope is that good people will call Wrieden out publicly on his behavior time and again. In the meantime the city's commitment to preservation is nada. Bad economic times are preservation's best friend. Think about it.

This may sound simple but with all the hype etc. from months ago about wanting to be first in the 2010 count would it not have been prudent for Healy to meet with census people with a list of all the new buildings to insure a proper count? Particularly since 2000 was short by a lot. A whole decade in between and everyone is watching the accident but no one is calling EMS. Que??

A/K/A the "Gorton's Fisherman". He scratched my car recently and have seen him by other cars banging away. Last week around midnite was by the steps of the "Parkview" York & Barrow banging the steps with a bag. In the past he would walk up to the phone booth on the park (gone now), pick up the receiver and bang the hell out of it. You can't confront someone like him and the damage he does may be negligible to some but cumulatively its a lot of bucks. It might be prudent to alert the P.D. since they know of him and they could advise him to knock it off.

It has to dry up before any corrective work is done. Once settled and dry the bricks come up, new gravel/sand/stone dust put down and compacted properly. Then a french drain should be installed and the bricks re-laid. Should be good to go.

So it turns out the sleeping man is none other than the $110,000 dollar a year deputy mayor Kabili Tayari. He absolutely personifies the tenor of the Healy incompetents.
I saw him asleep at the first meeting several weeks ago and did'nt know who he was. He can also be seen asleep at the council caucus meeting under the "NAACP Head Kabili Tayari letter" post. It's wonderful and right out of central casting. His image asleep is poster material. Next meeting when he's zonked I suggest everyone call out "Phone call for Mr. Tayari." You can't make this up.

Where do you get your population growth projections from?

Does that include under-counting from the last Census?

I looked at 1990 to 2000 data once. We constructed something like 9000 units in the '90s which led to a growth of 18000 overall. I would assume we'd grow more than that (if we constructed about the same number of units), and I have no idea what the GS building and the financial co. bring in terms of residents. 35,000 would be a big game-changing number for us.

Ianmac: I agree with your assessment of Newark; although, I have no idea what foreclosure does to the population of any town. Do people move out. Intuitively, I feel that if you can't make it in Newark, you tend to end up renting there because it tends to be the most affordable place to pick yourself up.


My projection is based on under and uncounted from 2000 plus all that is new since. A windshield survey around the city substantiates such an increase. What could keep it down is that much of what is built is unoccupied.

The fact is much of the waterfront, Paulus Hook to Newport, was'nt built in 2000. A good portion of what was there was'nt counted. Then take into account the remainder of the city, the Beacon etc. and the numbers will swell. Healy was on JC1 recently with a 2010 census organizer, Raul Vicente, and they told the history of the 2000 census. If properly done I estimate a leap in JC's population of 35,000. Keep in mind a significant increase will mean the city must provide services to meet that level for state and national standards e.g. police, fire, medical, schools. The state has sent out overtures that no more financial help is coming from them so it could be the taxpayers will once again be called into service as the city's ATM. But with the fiscal crisis at hand and the looming taxpayer rebellion be prepared for a bumpy ride.

The Mt. Rushmore analogy is on target. They're right out of central casting. Deadpan "we can wait you out stares" from Brennan and Gaughan. Floods definitely out of it. Did we see her walk in or was she carried on? Not an ounce of remorse for their dastardly deeds not that it was expected.
The city's lawyer Matsikoudis pacing about and snickering at the table chewing a wad of gum. No respect there. The positive is that the momentum is with us & we will prevail. On to the barricades.

Vega says he uses his SUV to get around the city and that he's not above sacrifice. He received his vehicle in 9/09 after he was arrested and suspended by the county thereby losing his county SUV. The city's business administrator stated weeks ago that they've clocked Vega's monthly mileage at 1,000 plus. Vega is using the city SUV as he did the countys to travel to his Catskill ski chalet in Fleischmanns NY on weekends so there you go. We're subsidizing this cretin to play in the snow. The next mass protest should be up in the Catskills where he's Mr. goody two-shoes. That will shake him up you betcha!!

There are capacity limits on rooms. How many people can fit in that room? What will happen if the limit is reached, ie can they stand in the hall (or is there a law?) etc.


It is best to be ready for anything with this crew. The acting president Brennan and his chief cohort Gaughan are not used to being challenged. A few weeks ago with a firewater blush on their cheeks, chomping on gum, they reacted by threatening to clear the space due to overcrowding. They know whats coming tomorrow and they don't like it.

It is only necessary to know one thing about the building department. It is insidiously corrupt throughout. The feds and other law enforcement officials are aware of this and as yet have allowed it to operate. The hope is that finally when Healy is brought down this slime- ridden office will be cleansed out.

And as for the comment about them standing around on the corner, i assume waiting for the kids is part of their job. Alot of people are confused in thinking their job descriptions include stoping the traffic and crossing adults. It does not. They are just being nice when they stop the traffic for adults to cross.
Their job is to protect children from the crazy maniac drivers that are in Jersey City.


Not quite accurate. Crossing guards do work overtime on weekends when there's a parade, running event etc. year round.

When Felton was arrested last month Superior Court Judge and former HC Prosecutor Theemling set his bail at $500,000 CASH. Who posted Felton's bail? What was the source of that bail money? Is it now forfeited due to this arrest? This entire affair is an absolute travesty of justice and the public has a right to answers. The Ringside Lounge murder was committed by a man arrested and released on bail only days before the murder on big charges. The system is a sewer and we are not being protected. The bulk of those arrested in this major drug sweep are most likely out on the streets again doing business as usual. Law enforcement is totally outnumbered in manpower and weapons.

When Vega was arrested he was suspended from his county job and had to give up his county SUV. In order to kiss his boo-boo Healy gave him a city SUV. It pays to be a crook. Oh and the 1,000 miles a month is the trips to and fro his chalet in the Catskills. Nice work if you can get it.

Mid January Felton gets shot in the head, said to be blinded and in critical condition. Charges up the wazoo and bail set at $500,000 cash. A HALF MILLION BUCKS! & he's out in mid February caught in a major drug bust. So who posted his bail? Mommy-poo? Remember the guy that killed someone at the Ringside Bar? He too was out on bail in a few days from major charges. Don't even bother locking them up. It's too much for civilized people to swallow.

Once the 2010 census is done and the numbers put Jersey City as the states most populated how are services, which are being cut, increase to accomodate the state mandated requirement for population needs. The waterfront zone is abated. The added burden will fall upon the already over-taxed citizen who are now facing a 25% increase if the present budget is adopted as I fear it will. The corrupt swine who run this city have to go as the Journal says. Whatever the answer is to restore this city to some level of decency does not lie with those presently in office.

And boy, wouldn't it help if keeping the pressure on weren't such an uphill struggle. If this were any other city in America, we wouldn't have to rely on the media from a much larger city to cover our news. Think about it - Jersey City is roughly the same size as Buffalo and Birmingham, Alabama. If high ranking officials in those cities - cities with national prominence - were being indicted, there'd be a steady drumbeat on the local network affiliates day and night. TV vans would be permanently parked in front of city hall. The mayor wouldn't be able to move without a camera in his face. Instead, we get the NY stations to come out and cover the highlights with a one or two minute clip buried between a hit-and-run accident on Long Island and .... guess what??? It's Raining Again!!!!

I believe the biggest reason corruption has festered on as long as it has is that the shadows are very, very comfortable here. There is usually little danger of angering the public - no offense to the Jersey Journal, but they have a hard time competing with the NY papers. This time though - the story is big enough that it hits the national radar. At least for a little while.


Looking back at the posts Birmingham popped up and it hit me that in December '08 its Mayor Larry Langford was arrested on federal charges of money laundering, conspiracy & bribery. 60 counts total in what may lead to the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history. It does'nt end there. It spans the nation. There is nothing unique about these stories but here it had more flavor because of the characters and international impact. The press will come if hundreds march on City Hall and the residences of these swine not once but again and again.

Whether Healy is or is'nt guilty of criminal activity will be told as the clock winds down on all the trials and testimony.
However it comes out for Healy he must be held accountable for his incompetence in the governance of this city. If not for his neglect the bulk of the people caught up in this scandal would not have been in their jobs. The budget nightmare would not exist, crime would truly be going down and not as his mindless press conference on the subject would have us believe, and there would be at least, a modicum, of quality of life. Healy and his cohorts are our Katrina like it or not.

This is beyond one or two mis-delivered letters. It is widespread throughout the entire downtown area. The name for this is "theft of service". We pay almost 50 cents to have a letter delivered and it winds up in the wrong place. Consistently. This should be a matter for the hierarchy of the Postal and Federal Police. Multiply what we know in our neighborhoods times the city and state. There are thousands of dollars lost/stolen by the Postal Service on a daily basis. It is a crisis and must be exposed.

Tom Fricchione and Jack Shaw

With Tom Fricchione's death there will be the inevitable questions about the circumstances and what, if any, connection there might be to the death of Jack Shaw. Both men were tied to the massive wave of arrests last July. It is interesting that these men were not mere politicos but behind the scenes operatives who knew how to get things done to their benefit. For sure Fricchione had not been charged in this matter but he was the treasurer of Phil Kenny's campaign and it was Fricchione who acknowledged the bribe money and stated it was "red flagged and donated to charity". Now there are two men who died alone and still no answer to what killed the first.

All the best to this new group. May they prosper. There will be no dent in the job that needs to be done unless and until the new police officers come to know the neighborhoods they patrol by walking and not riding with the windows rolled up. In urban America the concept of community policing goes back to the days of the town crier who walked the streets and shouted out the condition of the hour. There are very few p.o.'s who now walk the streets and overall the number is dramatically down from the last decade. All the hype about Jersey City surpassing Newark's pop count is worthless without the resources to address the demand. These young police officers will soon exit this city for another place to call home and raise a family as time has shown.

Incredible. Read my sig line. . . .

It will cost over $4,500 to move each of these signs that you can't possibly read unless your nose touches it. It is a total outrage but absolutely typical of this corrupt group running this city.
