Re: End of AirBnB in Jersey City?
#1
Home away from home
Home away from home


If the city wants to do something positive... they need to regulate the mailing/distribution of campaign literature. I am throwing stuff away daily, not even reading it.

Also today, coming home from work, I was greeted at my front door by a nice young lady looking for me. At first I thought she might be an Amazon Driver. She is working on the the Air BNB question and wanted to know who I was voting for... I told her undecided which she entered into her little handheld device.

As we said goodbye she handed me more literature. I could not tell you what side she worked on... it went straight in the garbage. Now I am worried my answer has invited a more intense response... I am open to gift cards. :)

Happened to see an NJ.com comment referring to VIA in NYC Yelp. Interesting read... this should be fun to watch. Curious how the NJ Transit Unions feel about this outsourcing of public transportation for $2M.

It is a bad location. You would think that with all the weekend PATH traffic being directed to that ferry stop and the number of public invited "social events" being held weekly in that huge rotunda space that they would have developed some sort of following. It's a tough business.

As expected Grand Street is a parking lot going westbound with plenty of horns and music playing.

Just saw an ambulance coming from Paulus Hook Washington Street travelling in eastbound lane of Grand Street all the way to JCMC.

Like the Mayor says.... people will just have to get used to these things. I hope the person in the ambulance understand.

I think this was was the race that screwed up traffic all day long in DTJC last Fall. Not sure what the improvement is in the race course but crossing Marin multiple times, Grove, Grand, Montgomery will make vehicle traffic impossible.

And don't forget new bike lanes have reduced streets like Montgomery down to one lane. This will be an event watching the cyclists take out runners who venture into the sacred green space.

The ferry is relatively stress free and more reliable.... and I think the bus that shuttles ferry passengers is free.

Why not take Path to WTC all the northbound MTA connections are there?

Re: New Jersey to require schools to teach LGBT history

Have to agree... the whole identity politics thing is quite boring. Everyone has a chip on their shoulder these days. The most minor incidents of poor service in a restaurant are called out as racism / homophobia whatever .... when most likely the service sucks for everyone. It's Burger King!

And when will the SJMedia Yahoo stop posting stories about a servers being called racist names and stiffed on a tips? After posting a receipt on FB, the next thing the "victim" does is set up a Go-Fund-Me account.

Seems like all of this can be dealt with by developing a learning curriculum to teach kids about respecting themselves and others.... start it at kindergarten and keep expanding to the high school years where teens can get credit for volunteering time to the community. For some "adults" today it maybe to late, but you have to start somewhere.

The traffic was insane on Grand Street all day long. Watching KD horse racing, I got up a couple times with horn blowing to see what the problem was.... I forgot about this race. Can only imagine Grove/Newark Ave area congestion.

Not sure if this was a new race, but they typically run these things on Sunday morning right up Grand Street. Kind of nice sitting on the stoop with coffee watching the runners.

I heard they DQ'd the first place winner?

Better remove that Alabama flag too, it's got bars (although no stars) just like Mississippi. Same with Florida, we can't have that, so offensive. While we're at it, take down Hawaii, it's got the flag of Great Britain in the upper left corner, that's an insult to our independence as a nation. That Washington, DC flag, with three red stars and two red stripes, looks kind of communist, don't know if we should have that either. Oh, and the flag of Iowa, with a blue, white and red vertical stripe would make me think it's the flag of France were it not for the eagle in the middle. People might have issues with that too.

So glad our governor has his priorities straight.



This one act probably took him and his staff (the ones not raping women) months figure out.... which completely took them away from their business of running the state.

So I guess there is a positive benefit to this foolishness...

Nothing whiny or smug about it, you asked a question that made it clear your concept of JC ended at the Tpk, that you'd never gone beyond, like "there be dragons". Don't take it out on me.

It's like the classic New Yorker cover, except the Tpk is a stand-in for the Hudson.

I hate to have to break it to you, but there's more to both JC and Grand St than Downtown. That section is up by Arlington Park. The plan as described sounds very much like the changes to Observer Highway in Hoboken east of Marin. Wasn't the end of the world, but I think there's more traffic on Grand.

If there is any justice... I would like to see the obstructionist Federal Court in San Francisco slap an injunction on the DHS preventing the illegals from coming into sanctuary city San Francisco or the surrounding counties.

No reason why the border states should bear the burden of this illegal activity. There is plenty of open space in Lincoln Park. It would only be temporary

What a mess at Exchange Place / Harborside today.... easily a couple hundred plus people waiting to board ferry at noontime.

Saw this chaos from roundabout entry to Hyatt... looked over to Paulus Hook, empty. Walked over and paid full fare $12 RT but at that point they were running PH to WFC directly.

Chaos over at WFC at 6:00pm return. People had no idea what slip was what and they were moving ferries off one slip to another... Very surprised PATH people were not at the docks for crowd control on either side. Did see a PATH Cop standing on the Harborside steps looking at the crowd.

Amazed this has been running like this for a few weeks and they still have not figured it out. It's the typical PATH... just on water.

I have not been digging into the details of the poor young woman murdered in SC... but I am wondering if this was a planned setup for robbery/murder.... or just a crime of opportunity for the killer.

I have had strangers at night walk up to my SUV and knock on the window to ask if I was their ride and they would have got in if I said yes. It was actually quite startling... I am sure it has happened to other drivers.

Is this the same historic commision that was supposed to "preserve" the Power House?

The buildings are not located in a prominent area of Paulus Hook where saving them would add something to the character of the neighborhood.

They are on a narrow one way street that creates the the far most district border. Most PH neighbors don't even know they exist .... however we are all aware of the Van Vorst Residential Tower that the city permitted and looms over the neighborhood. Seems like there is something else at play here...

That was pretty funny... with just the right amount of reality to make you wonder?? I remember years ago two April Fools jokes in Boston media... one was about the State Police adding fighter jets to it air wing, supposedly to do high level surveillance of people speeding across the state on the turnpike.

The other was a local tv station broadcasting video of Mount St Helens erupting and saying it was happening at a public outdoor hiking park just west of Boston called the Blue Hills. Created a major panic as people went crazy... the fighter story lingered for a couple years during state budget time while the volcano story got the reporter and producer fired.

Loud construction noise disrupts learning at Jersey City schools

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 6:32PM

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- School officials in Jersey City say nearby construction noise is so bad it is a struggle to get through class -- and they want something to be done.

The sounds of progress in the neighborhood have become too much for residents who live near the construction site at Bright and Varick streets.

Neighbors say the corner has sat vacant for years and the construction is for a planned residential commercial development.


One resident says the construction makes his house shake. Another resident said it's so loud the ground shakes and his windows rattle.

So just imagine trying to teach at Frank Conwell middle and elementary schools right across the street.

"We have about 700 kids from 8:30 to 3:00, how can they learn anything with this pounding?" said Jersey City School Board President Sudhan Thomas. "This is ridiculous, this is unfair to the students, it's unfair to the teachers, it's unfair to the neighborhood."

Thomas has complained to the city, saying at the very least, the pounding should be done outside of school hours.

But the construction crew has been clocking out just about the same time schools let out.


Eyewitness News reached out to both the city and construction companies for comment, but did not receive replies.
