First of all I currently see no, or at least very few, trees on Newark Ave. between Jersey Ave and Grove Street.

Secondly, that strip of Newark Ave between Jersey and Grove really SHOULD be pedestrian-only. Is there really a need for vehicular traffic there? For what, to go and make a right on Grove Street?? Those very few drivers that would do that can just turn right on Jersey and left on Columbus.


There's some pathetic tiny potted trees.

As for traffic, I've been told that the merchants freak out at the idea of even making it one way, never mind traffic free, they think people just driving by and in buses are their best customers. They apparently also depend on people illegally parking on the south side sidewalk.

That section is an ongoing clusterf$#k to drive or bike with no one even trying to fix it. My opinion is there's not quite enough pedestrians to warrant a mall, but it should definitely be one way eastbound with loading zones among the meters so that trucks can deliver without double parking.


And making that block of Newark one way would make alot of sense for merchants. Parking most likely would be the diagonal head-in type and offer ALOT more spot that currently there. Being against even the one way makes no sense!

Fantastic news for JC! ...and for Hyman too. He could double his investment is he takes the deal with the city. Even if the land is "worth" 30 million. I'd hedge my bets, take the money and run.

4:30 this morning an OLD power pole snapped in a half between 5th and 6th streets on Monmouth. It smushed a red pickup pretty good and created a 20 foot fireball from the transformers hitting the street. This is very same pole that we, neighbors on the block have complained about for years to PS. Electric is still on amazingly!

I really do hope that someday there is an overhall of the JCBD. It is, BY FAR, the WORST city agency that I have ever had to deal with in my life. And I have been to some really bad DMV's!!

Good news on the course! LP range was fine for practice...windy with old balls not withstanding. They had just replaced all the mats a few years back too.

So whats the over/under on the completion date holding up? lol While it doesn't take much time to move dirt around etc. Seeding and getting a good thick quality turf takes time. I say it will be years before we see an opening day.

I here you cyclotronic on prices, but you have to consider that there are labor, salvage rights etc involved. That's pretty bizzare about OGT! lol

I'll second Build It Green, but definitely hit or miss on good quality stuff.

Two different hawks if you ask me. The second one downtown here has less white feathers and no red tail. Mom and dad hawk perhaps?

SKIP all of those places!! The mark-up is crazy around here. Instead go to:

http://recyclingthepast.com/

and

http://recyclingthepast.com/Doors_Inventory.asp?subcatId=1

They are in Barnegat just off the GSPW @ exit 63. They have an excellent selection of interior and exterior doors as well as all kinds of old plumbing stuff. (claw foot tubs etc.). I got a 4 panel door from the Stanford White mansion for $200 last year.

Thanks for the updated post T-Bird. Thats awesome that a "phase III" is in the works. That part of Newark ave (Coles up through the turnpike) does really need help especially the pavement.

oy @ comment #3 under story on curbed.com:

"It does have a kind of haunting beauty.

I don't think this would work as a park, b/c of the safety concerns people have in Jersey City. Jersey City today is like Manhattan in the 70s. I've never seen a cop on the street there, and tourists ogling the plants and views would be open targets for neighborhood muggers."

Article is not saying JC is one of the best places to raise kids, instead it is comparing only large cities. So we shouldn't compare JC to towns, like Princeton, Montclair, etc..

Fact that JC is 13 and Newark 46 may say more about how bad most large cities are when it comes to providing a great environment for raising kids compared to JC, instead of how great JC is compared to all other places, including the plethora of towns in NJ and the country.

I don't think anyone is arguing that all of JC is great to raise kids, but to echo Brewster, the city actually has alot to offer, most of it within walking distance, especially for downtown residents. If the JC public schools were in great shape, JC would be much closer to the top of that list.


+1 agreed.
