I think the lawsuit is a rumor. The part is in transit from Canada and may be stuck in customs for awhile.

Have I missed what is going on with the fountain and the spray area? I would love to know - I heard the spray area was one for one day and it was slippery. What's the plan though? And why isn't the fountain on?


Finally some updates :)

1. The fountain is awaiting final inspection. It should be operational soon.

2. The children's spray feature needs a new controller which is currently in transit. DPW and the Div of Architecture understand that it is needed ASAP. The surface has been worked on and is no longer an outstanding issue.


Steve, I heard a rumor today that I'd love for you to squash: that a lawsuit has been filed as a result of an injury in the spray area, so it will be closed indefinitely.

Please tell us this isn't true. If it is, and that litigious neighbor is reading this thread, then I gotta ask....really?!

The Pet Free Zone signs are now in place.

The two lawn section along 8th Street are designated as "pet friendly", and the two sections along West Hamilton are "pet free". All other lawn areas, and walkways are also pet friendly.

Both the results of park renovation survey conducted by Jennifer Greely and the HPNA clearly demonstrated community support for a pet free area. The survey
results specify that 30% of Hamilton Park be designated as “Pet Free”. The current configuration is very close to the 30% figure.

The 115 page report is available at:

From what I've heard from our neighborhood committee-man the sign problem is definitely being worked on. Fulop is working on it and they are approaching a solution but we should be patient. Calling the DPW or Parks Dept will not speed up the process. Give it a couple of weeks and we'll hopefully have satisfaction. It seems like a simple thing but alas this is Jersey City.


That is correct. The goal is to get this straightened out asap, maybe before the July 4th holiday.

Oh I'm deadly serious.
Whilst taking my morning constitutional I noticed at least one of the signs that had previously been left intact has now also been altered. The sign closest to the dog run in the center of the park now reads "Free Zone". This must have happened overnight.
I also saw a contractor checking all the signs while talking on his phone.
The money it will cost to repair these signs could have been better spent on garbage cans for the basketball court.


I was at the East District Captain's meeting last night and the noise in the basketball courts in Hamilton Park and other issues were discussed.

Vandalism in the park will not be tolerated. If you have witnessed the signs or other park features being vandalized file a police report at the Police Department - East District at 207 7th Street.

At least one of the signs seems to be installed in the wrong area from what I've been told. The signs should designate that 2 of the 4 lawns are pet free, not 3 of 4.

I noticed the signs for the Pet Free Areas have been installed. Although it is not 2 of 4 lawns it is 3 of 4 (All the open lawns). The only green area that pets are allowed is the small space in the Southeast corner and i suppose some of the bits of grass around the ball courts.

For starters there should be trash receptacles by basket ball court bleachers, and the blue recyclable container has gone missing - must be replaced. The city should be providing containers soon and if all else fails the HPNA may have to provide them. The trash problem should be reduced once there are trash bins in place.

At the last HPNA meeting we invited the organizer of the basketball league, and he has committed to cleaning up after the league games, and we'll hold them to it.

We're working with Downtown Jersey City Watch (downtownjcwatch@gmail.com) to patrol the courts after hours - this should also help. There's also been discussion of education, perhaps politely talking with the users of the courts. If all else fails there are caps that can be placed on the hoops but this is a measure of last resort. If you have ideas, please share them.

Keep in mind that the basketball courts aren't the only place where trash accumulates. For example, the children's play area is also a problem.

At the basketball courts there are after hours noise and trash problems, and they go hand in hand. So we're looking to address both.

Steve:

How can the HPNA help the situation with the littering by the basketball court? I already signed up as a volunteer to help clean the park, but cleaning up after other people on a daily basis is no way to combat the problem. By cleaning up for other people, we are only making the situation worse.

Random litter/trash is expected, and that is what the clean up should focus on taking care of. We should not be responsible for cleaning up the systematic trashing of the basketball court.

What can the HPNA do?

It is obvious that the cops are being put up to this by the HPNA. They believe that by lying to people about the law then they can scare them off the grass, "nip it in the bud" as they say. You cannot make an entire park "pet free". It's against the law. There are NO signs anywhere indicating a "pet free" area. The cop doesn't have a leg to stand on...


The signs for the pet free area (two of the four lawns) should be up by the end of the week. Until then, people are free to walk their leashed dogs on all lawn areas.

I saw police in the park yesterday. The only request for cops in the park from the HPNA that I know of was for patrols near the basketball courts after 10PM due to noise issues.

Is there a Hamilton Park board or alliance?

If so does it hold benefits/ fundraisers?

Also, I am curious about adding recycling bins, and possibly information pamphlets handed out to park users.

While I am not in favor of confrontational behavior, a little passive aggressive smiling and talking goes a long way.

I would volunteer to do it myself :)

The signs designating the pet free lawns - the two sections in the NW section of the park closest to the children's play area should be installed soon.

Also, the Public Works employee that handles the basketball league will be at this month's HPNA meeting (June 2 - Cordero School). Not all of the litter can be blamed on the league, but residents have pointed out that they are part of the problem. Ideas to discourage littering, and organized clean up efforts will be discussed.

The open discussion segment (park issues) is 8:45PM and the meeting begins at 7:45PM.

Boy, the park is really nice!

My only concern is about some of the people with dogs.

I saw multiple owners letting their furry buddies relieve themselves (both #1 and #2) in close proximity to children and families in what I believe is the no-pet part of the park.

Even if you pick it up, poop will still leave a residue on the grass which is definitely a health hazard to the little kids I saw running around on / rolling in / eating of / crawling upon / the grass.

Maybe someone from the dog community could help to organize an awareness campaign about the dangers of mixing pooches and kiddies, and make sure everybody keeps it safe and healthy.

I was just walking near the park. I didn't get too close to the courts, but from what I could see they weren't "completely trashed." There was maybe one plastic bag floating around.

The trash bin on the way out of the park on 9th concerns me. It was filled to the rim.


No offense but you must be blind. Take a look around the perimeter of the court. There are dozens and dozens of bottles thrown all over the place. The area under the bleachers is full of trash.

From Althea:
"Hamilton Park is 100% good to go. They will be holding their re-opening ceremony at Noon this Thursday (5/27/2010). I met with the PSE&G rep this morning and the final lights are being connected tomorrow. That is our final step, but even if that falls through, all safety issues have been met and the Park will be open to the public this weekend."

The City is confident that the park will open in May.
The HPNA Parkfest will take place on Saturday June 5, (rain date June 6).

The job has to be 100% completed which includes the grass being fully grown in before the park can open. From what I understand this is required under state bidding regulations/contract.

In addition to the City budget, as many of you know there is a proposed gas pipeline for New York that could potentially go through Jersey City. As this is in the initial stages, there are more questions than anything else however, Councilman Fulop has been looking in to this issue and will update us on his findings.
