While everyone will feel simpathy for the deseased, this is terrible for the conductor. He likely never saw the victim and now maybe st live with the guilt. Just terrible!

I remember that march, it went from City Hall to the County Building. I lost neighbors in that revaluation. Either they had to sell sometimes at loss or they lost their homes through the tax hike. You had to pay in advance to appeal. Many could not afford to pay in advance. This the reason I am against all tax abatements, even affordable housing. You are pushing someone's tax burden on another group. As it is now one third of the city do not pay regular taxes due to abatements.


Yes. God forbid the city use this as an opportunity to cut costs.

you do realize Terrence works for a LOCAL publication covering LOCAL issues, right? maybe he'll get around to covering the issue AFTER it's had an impact on Hudson County and Jersey City businesses.


say what? 12 000+ taking our jobs in our city is not an existingproblem?

Nope.

They are not "TAKIN ER JERBS." They are legal visa holders who work, consume and most likely live in JC. They are our co-workers and neighbors.

Spare us the nativism, kthx.


Quote:
slums in our city created by overcrowding by h1b holders not a problem too?

Did you not read your own source? The average wage offer for those jobs is over $80k. Sure, rent in JC is expensive, but those visa holders are not living in "slums."

Meanwhile, what does the EO actually do? Not much. It is going to... generate reports on H1B visa holders. And suggest reforms!!!

It didn't demand an investigation of all H1B visas issued. They aren't going to drag every H1B visa holder to the nearest ICE office and grill them. They aren't revoking visas. It doesn't even reduce the number of H1B visas that will be made available; Congress sets the amount.

At worst, they will just add another layer of paperwork to the H1B program.

More noise, no substance....


Of course they are they are living 10 deep and sending the money home!

The MAIN reason that we don't have enough blue and white collar jobs throughout the US has nothing to do with H1B visa's . Trump is diverting the true problem with this crap - see attached about the cause and effect ... basically corporations have invested their manufacturing and infrastructure in China and other 'cheap' labor countries that don't have the same labor and environmental laws as we do here ...


We actually been getting a lot of manufacturing returning to the USA in large part because we have some of the cheapest energy in the world , places like China aren't that cheap anymore, and a need to reduce transit costs associated with the supply chain.

However, the assembly line, low to moderate skill jobs aren't coming back with the manufacturing. I'll link to a case in point:

Textile (yarn) manufacturer headed for China in the '90s for the cheap labor. In 2010, the US plant was re-opened. In its previous peak during the 1980s, it employed over 2,000 people. Today: about 140 workers due to automation.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/20/bus ... .html?pagewanted=all&_r=0


I often question the patriotism of US corporations and our politicians ... for me they have very little with politicians being complicit with their needs and wants ... campaign money always has a big voice on governance.



Are you speaking of US corporations and Australian politicians?

I pretty sure there was a plan to build alongside the wittpenn bridge. Instead they chose to rebuild. So after 10 yrs of additional traffic and road closings we will be left with only the same ways in and out of Jersey city. In the end traffic congestion will be as it was before.

There has been some chatter that the Whole Foods at Metropolis Towers is a dead deal. Apparently the shareholders of the Metropolis Towers thought they were getting a bad deal out of the project and voted it down. Whole Foods also just closed nine of their stores nationwide due to a poor fiscal outlook, so they may have just decided to not go forward with the construction in this particular location and are looking elsewhere in Jersey City (hence the rumors of a Journal Square location)..

If it's a dead deal it's nice to because of the shareholder vote. Those buildings are overwhelmingly owned by the coop itself to the tune of about 80%to 20%

Sad for you that you are stuck in the "yay Republicans!" school of political "thought". I'm more interested in solutions than rooting for a team.

Hi,
We have a mix breed dog that has made it difficult to obtain homeowner insurance at a reasonable cost. For the last few yrs we have been using Lloyd's of London through Chubb. The premiums have been ridiculous so I am looking for alternatives. If anyone has any suggestions It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Another entry for the JC Property Tax Hall of Shame:

243 2nd St -
Asking Price: 1.75 MM
Taxes (2015): 10.6 K (a whopping 0.6%)

If we end up at a 2% rate, the new taxes would be 35K. Even if we end up with a 1.8% rate, this property will pay 31.5K. I wonder if the seller, or their agent, will disclose that to potential buyers.

Tell me again how this reval is not overdue?

If they have to be told then they should continue to rent.


That's total BS, Heights. Full disclosure of critical matters related to a property sale should be legally required. Lots of buyers are gobbling up DTJC properties seemingly unaware of the impending reval. How's someone supposed to know about the reval process and the potential for a doubling or tripling of the advertised taxes.


The joke is that any property on a 25x100 lot should have to pay $35k in taxes. Let alone one in a city loaded with business and industry that should offset property taxes. Then again I guess Steve will need to cover the estimated $9.6 million lost in federal aid.

i think this goes beyond just booze though maybe there is more police patrolling the other places in the world that open their streets to the public after drinking hours.


How about not choosing to live on or near a street riddled with restaurants?


That's a silly argument as cityhall allowed this proximity to occur; planning zones of businesses with a 'night club' element next door to residents.
Cityhall must take ownership for this problem and either they should of had an 'entertainment precinct' void of residents or introduced conditions for late night liquor licences so at not to cause an anti-social element to residents - Blame lays with city planners. It should be noted that restuarants in general, don't cause issues, but when a so-called 'restaurant' operates like a bar and its sole purpose is to sell beer and it targets patrons from a younger demographic, then that's a different story !


Newark Ave has always had bars and restaurants on it. It has always been commercial. This is nothing new. As I stated before the restaurants and bars have increased property values. If you don't like the bustle sell to someone that does

You make a good point -- especially with bars that have endless issues.

Those bars and restaurants have raised property values. If you don't like them cash out and move
