My condolences to you all. She sounds like she was a great lady, the kind of person who makes your day better and this city brighter.

Yes, she like many others are truly what makes HP a wonderful place to live. She was loved by so many. Can you imagine 11 kids? ( g-d bless her).

Mrs. Maria Skupien................

We?ve learned of some very sad news.... Mrs. Maria Skupien was killed while crossing Newark ave.

News report from the Jersey Journal

For those who knew her, will share our shock and sadness for those who did not, she was one of those very special ladies that made Hamilton Park a very unique place to live. She was the woman who lived on the corner of West Hamilton Place and Pavonia who had that amazing garden; she had become a single mom with 11 children and raised them with love and an iron fist. Every day for 12 years like clock work, I?d walk my dog and she would be outside tending to her property. She greeted me for 12 years with a cheerful good morning and for 12 years I would say ?good morning Mrs. Skupien? Never calling her by her first name (it was a respect thing) she was such a cheerful lady and it was always wonderful to start the day being greeted by such a kind soul . She was from Poland (just like my Grandma who passed away years ago) and her perogies were just like my Grandma?s and always gave us care packages. Sundays at the Skupiens looked liked a scene from a movie all the kids, and grandkids eating dinner at mom?s house. That corner had so much life and love pouring out of that house.

She embraced all of us young silly newbie?s and welcomed us with open arms, She comforted all of us when P.O. Infantes was taken off life support, she comforted all of us during those dark days of Sep 11th. When my dad passed suddenly she came to my home and kissed me on the forehead and held me like I was one of her own children, it was a comfort during one of my saddest moments in my life, for many of us who moved to HP came from outside Hudson County and she was our surrogate, mom, grandma, and one of the reasons why Hamilton Park was not just where I lived but my home.

I will miss her terribly and my prayers are with her family.

Who did rpinkowitz get her city job from? Mayor Healy of course.

lol, that's a first.

Kudos to Healy my ass!

You mean to tell me he only "weighed" all the facts now out of the kindness of his heart??? Or is it the threat of more and more legislative action against the disgrace of eminent domain (including withholding federal funds among others being considered)?

Healy or the Prep, whoever took the decision to kill it, you could have done this months ago. Your reputations (the Prep's especially) have been forever tarnished. I for one won't forget...

I hope Terry sues the instant a ball falls on his roof. Damn, this makes me angry... hehe...
