Re: ?? Senior Housing ??

been helping a parent as well. here's what i've found so far:

1) city resources: https://www.cityofjerseycity.com/community/seniorresources
and https://www.cityofjerseycity.com/CityHall/affordable_housing

county resources:
http://www.hudsoncountynj.org/about-office-on-aging/

Call them and make them help you

2) ask her primary care dr for referrals/suggestions; also ask them for transportation options. the hospitals have transit vans for dr appointments.

3) try aplaceformom.com which refers to private pay senior centers but some take medicare/medicaid. medicare part b should pay for up to 100 days at most nursing homes such as Alaris on Hamilton Park.

Re: Jersey City Charter Schools Claim They’re Being Shortchanged by State
#2

The funding differences exists prior to the formula being applied. That is, there is a huge difference in BASE per pupil funding, which is before weights for at-risk, ELL, and special ed. So the differences can't be explained away by demographic differences among the schools. In addition, Jersey City charter schools get substantially less base per pupil than Newark charter school students. Adjustment aid is not just "a factor" in Jersey City--it is 1/6 of the total school budget ($115 million of $665 million) and more than 25 percent of the total state aid to the school budget.

Also: JCPS itself has demographic differences among its schools. Take, for example, PS 16 and PS 17. PS 16 has approximately one-third of its students on free lunch, like TECCS, while PS 17 has approximately 3/4 of its students receiving free lunch. Would someone argue that PS 16 should get less BASE per pupil funding than PS 17?

The outdoor public pool in Lafayette is gorgeous and completely open in the mornings. It tends to open at the end of June through Labor Day.

Re: should Jersey City create and implement on-street bicycle lanes?
#4

"(easing restrictions on riding on sidewalks??? Please vote no on that, city council!)"
The easing means that cyclists can ride at the rate of pedestrians in low-traffic areas; in business districts with many pedestrians, there are/will be signs restricting bicycles. Far from contradicting the effort to make streets safer, this aspect strengthens safety for riders of all ages. Sidewalk-riding in low-density areas--much of Jersey City--is a good option for children and parents with children on those streets without bike lanes. While most adult cyclists will happily take the road, for kids trying to get to school, squeezing in beside a delivery truck can be pretty intimidating. I hope this, along with the rest of the ordinance, gets a yes vote on Dec. 19. Many of the comments in this thread are perceptive and helpful. But while adult male cyclists may be the most vocal cyclists, they do not necessarily represent the breadth and diversity of our cycling community.

Lincoln Park, at Belmont and JFK, is slightly less than 1 mile from the PATH, a 15 minute walk along JFK. You can also bike to/from PATH. All cities have people who hang out in public places.

Re: Bike JC's Third Annual Jersey City Ward Tour, Sun. June 3, 2012

The tour was a great day! I hear 700+ rode, making it the biggest ever--which may be why the marshals--who numbered the most ever seemed relatively less numerous. The stops to group up are dictated by the police, who need to make sure they can cover each intersection.

No one hurt, everyone happy (except two posters here)--a great ride with abilities from race-shape to 10 year olds on small bikes. Thanks to the JCPD for making it happen!

Welcome! Are you going to be putting more information on your website, such as founders and principal information, as well as more details about the curriculum?

Re: harrison Ave/west end

We've lived here for 10 years. It is a great neighborhood, with the park and beautiful old housing stock and lots of families and people with dogs (because of the park). But as with all things, your interest should depend on your needs. What's your commute? Do you require good local publics? (There are plenty of schools in the area, which range from charters to catholics to decent publics in the lower grades.) Food is not a $4 cappuccino: instead great Filipino, Indian, burgers, etc. People are very friendly: you can just strike up a conversation with someone in the park. It's economically diverse--no yoga studios but, in addition to the park, there's a nearby Gold's gym as well as a little independent place on Montgomery on the way to the PATH. What else?

I am still sad they are gone. My son loved class with him and I hope he can come back to start an independent playspace with perhaps better business management. I'm not sure harassing a children's playgroup leader is necessarily worth people's time.

Re: Bike Share System
#11
Newbie

It does seem to be putting the cart before the horse. The main argument in favor of supporting bike share along with safe streets is that more bikes on the streets means safer streets. EasyRiders does do a great job of renting bikes in LSP and downtown, so there is already an existing option for those who don't own.

It is also true that measures such as lane striping and redesign of streets to be pedestrian/cyclist friendly (as did not happen on Columbus) seem like first steps. If you care about this, please visit BikeJC.org, a volunteer group which has been around 2 years but needs more active participation from those also frustrated with dangerous local streets in order to get more done.

And yes, sidewalk riding is currently prohibited. But that doesn't mean the law couldn't be changed to have reasonable sidewalk riding, where the cyclist obeys low-speed limits and defers to pedestrians, as other municipalities have done. It just takes those who are interested to get involved in active organizing.

Does anyone have a link to the plan online? The idea that someone's home could be demolished for an essential use such as a bowling alley (who comes up with this?) is terrifying.

The best bike in Jersey City?
#14
Newbie
Newbie


Do you have the most radically streamlined or the most fabulously beat-up or the most perfectly functional bike on the Jersey City streets? Come parade it around at Bike JC's first annual Bike Show, October 23, 4-7 pm, at the Golden Cicada, on Grand and Marin. Just email beforehand the make and story of your bike (preferably with a pic) to chris@bikejc.org. Applause-based prizes include a Bike JC tshirt and a drink on us. Find out more at http://bikejc.org.

Everyone, with or without bike, is invited to join us for drinks and conversation at the Golden Cicada as well. A portion of the bar tab goes to Bike JC, a cycling and safe streets advocacy group in Jersey City (see http://bikejc.org). There is also a pre-ride, leaving at 3 pm, from the corner of Grand and Jersey Ave.

Re: Running on the Jersey City streets
#15

there's lots of good running through jc streets to and from the parks--that's one reason we moved here from brooklyn almost a decade ago. chris_nj is right on with his post--lincoln park is great. i have also run down communipaw to liberty state to make for a longer run and then out past the new golf course to port liberte. i am a woman runner and am comfortable in cities running alone--have done it for 20+ years with no incident. of course, no ipod (or at least turn down the volume so you can hear everything) and never at dusk/dark alone.

before we moved here we also got tips from many old-school marathoners who had run from hoboken through jc on the streets--now you can do that all on the new waterfront path and then wind your way to liberty state park. as far as running cities go, jc is pretty good.

the main problem for runners, cyclists, and pedestrians is the region's driving culture--which basically means no regard for the law, safety, or basic civility. i wish the police would step up efforts to aggressively ticket all the right-hand turners who don't stop at lights, as well as those who take left turns when the light first turns. simply ticketing those who run lights would be a good start. i saw a man deliberately hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk n the other day--as if crossing the street in a marked intersection were an offense to him. i think most drivers here do not know what a crosswalk is and that pedestrians have right of way.

we are trying to figure out schools for the fall for our 3 year old. Parents who have sent their kids to hamilton park montessori--did you and your kids like the experience and why (or why not)? I don't need advice about application process, just want to get parents' perspectives.
