All the no turn on red signs recently put up has been terrible for air quality.

It's getting so bad here in Jersey city with all these panhandling people everywhere.
It started out with only 1 person many years ago which was Larry Adam's on 440 by Communipaw Ave & now everyday there's another 2 or 3 different people in and out of traffic. They are really causing traffic to backup cause people want to give them money & talk and at the same time not run them over.
Here, look at this link I came across yesterday...
Newark Ticketing Drivers Who Give Money To Panhandlers – CBS New York
https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/05/2 ... ive-money-to-panhandlers/



But Mayor Fulop said the liquor store was the problem.

That chart you referenced is what I figured the incomes to be. However I was about to rent an apartment to someone who backed out at the last min. She told me that making $125k per yr qualified her for moderate housing in a new tower opening in JSQ. She got a reduction making her rent $1700 for a 1 bed.

What do you mean there has been "no proactive information to alert people to this happening."

The City has used all of their social media platforms to show road closures and parking restrictions (Twitter, Facebook, and their official website).

And the road closure signs and parking restriction signs are plentiful and have been up for nearly a week already.

I'm not a JC gov't apologist here, but as a resident of Paulus Hook, I can assure you that we're well informed.


Newsflash: most people are NOT in social media AND following all the JC channels/platforms. I have seen one electronic sign, and I suspect I only noticed that it said because I am doing the race.

Let's see if we end up with the crazy traffic jams and chaos that materialize every time there are road closures in DTJC for an event.


I for one, am looking forward to the lulz. Especially wanna hear from the poster that wanted to stop one of last years races periodically so that traffic could pass.


Would you? I suppose you are talking about me. Last year I was stuck on Grand street where there were no signs posted. No detours set up either. This year I see streets are labeled. Just what I was asking for last year. Try reading what I wrote. Reading comprehension is important maybe not for you but for most.

Uhhh no. Euthanasia is still illegal in NJ.

The bill Murphy signed is pretty specific. You need 2 doctors to sign off that the patient has a terminal illness with a prognosis of 6 months or less left of life; the patient also must be of sound mind and self-administer the drug. Sounds pretty compassionate to me.

Yes, as the majority of NJers want legalized marijuana, and those legislators have valid concerns.

None of this, obviously, has anything to do with removing a state flag that includes a symbol of the Confederacy from a state park.


Are you actually trying to say Murphy has done a competent job as Govonor?

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.


Gezz... No problem, did not mean to make you answer my simple question about the photo location with such a whiny smug response.

And thanks for the geography lesson, it is nice to know there is life beyond the pale of the turnpike extension.


It's also clear you don't know what "beyond the pale" means.

This is a perfect example of what happens when people quote numbers and facts without understanding them or their context. Something of which you are quite an expert!

The Kearny jail has an unusually large percentage of non-citizens, but that is because the county has a contract with the federal government to house ICA detainees in that jail. A more informed opinion would be to understand how many of the Kearny jail prisoners are there because of crimes committed locally and are not there as part of the ICE contract. Of course, that would take time, effort, and intellectual honesty. Much easier to spout numbers without logic or reasoning.


What you seem to fail to understand is that those locked up are criminals. As is the person who killed the jogger!


LOL WUT!? Kindly point out where have I ever said such a thing? I am stridently against illegal immigration. That doesn't negate expecting intellectual honesty in a conversation in which facts and numbers are being thrown around.

The problem with Yvonne's post (and previous statements on this subject, and others) is that she likes to confuse things by throwing out numbers without context, to try and bolster her argument or opinion. Her post was clearly meant to convey two ideas: that most criminals are illegal immigrants (not true) and that the illegal immigrant population in JC (and this area) is much larger than most people think or assume.



What I was stating in my post was that while the method in which these prisoners are being held in the Kearny jail doesn't change the fact they are criminals and illegal.

He's basically advocating for higher tolls by the Port Aurthoity so it can be invested in PATH and other transHudson transit improvements.

Also, I didn't read that NYC residents would be exempt from the congestion pricing scheme, but assuming that is the case, why is that unacceptable but a payroll tax on Jersey City businesses that employ out of towners, with the revenue being used to fund our bloated and shitty school board, is somehow okay?

I'm a big transit/bike/pedestrian supporter but congestion pricing should be for exactly that -- reducing congestion-- not as a retaliatory tool to punish NY commuters into JC. The unintended consequences include businesses getting fed up with thr extra taxes and leaving, taking with them their precious income taxes they generate. Maybe if we make this city shitty enough, that will solve our congestion problems because everyone will have had enough bullshit and move away to Florida.


I think Murphy is taking care of your last point - the state is quickly becoming a sh!thole with never-ending high taxes and bowing to public unions - people ARE leaving the state in droves.

So basically the city wont even attempt to prohibit smoking in public places. I guess their contention that people of color who have been disproportionately arrested are not smoking peacefully at home after all.

A car should be waiting for pedestrians crossing. A no turn on red doesnt really help. What it does is allow a minimum number of cars through each light cycle. This causes cars to be backed up idling gas fumes into the air. Allowing cars to turn on red keeps thing moving.

What point exactly are you trying to make? You seem to be suggesting employers would only hire blacks when the wage was lower than that of whites.


He made his point in his post. Minimum wage laws were originally introduced to keep "undesirables" out the work place. Not just blacks, but other minorities and women.

Same principles at play today, even if not the intention of the policy.



Funny, it seems the very people you are referring to are pushing hard for the minimum wage increase. But I'm sure you guys know what's better for them.
