As it was, EVERYWHERE in Jersey City was within a school zone because of the density of school locations. Drug dealers could work in front of schools anyway, because the penalty would have been the same as if they were in the back alley behind the Duncan Avenue projects.

Goddamn, you people are stupid.

Old enough to be out, old enough to get home. If you were born and raised in that neighborhood, you probably wouldn't be so scared.

Were you home schooled or something? Did you miss out on being a teenager? Those cops did those kids a huge favor.. too bad that one idiot had to screw it all up.

does raw sewage = poo? i've wondered this for a while now and figured I'd finally ask someone.


Yes, that is a part of it. Raw sewage means everything that goes down drains, either from the sink, shower, toilet, washing machine, "safe" industrial waste, street water, etc. It's mostly just plain water with a shitload of lipids from the soap and the occasional floater. Sometimes, if you're in a sewer, it almost smells pleasantly floral from all the detergent.

Re: Bike signs all over town
#11
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


The city spent $150,000 on those bicycle signs with a vague promise of "looking into" doing a proper bicycle lane impact study at some point in the future "if cyclists responded" to the sign installations.

If they were serious, that meant that we cyclists were nothing more than guinea pigs to test out a dangerous semi-random "route" system, with unaware cyclists being under the impression that the bike routes had been thoroughly investigated for safety when that was far from the truth.

I'm even more cynical than that though, and think that the city thought they would look nice and give Jersey City a little bit of a cosmetic sheen of civility that it certainly lacks. Either that or some developer was crying about the lack of things to include in brochures besides a thousand different ways to say "vibrant community".

Now all the signs are starting to disappear, which might be a good thing.

Like apple pie!

This morning I woke up on my "don't remove the tag" mattress, walked through my building code compliant house, used the federally compliant toilet, dressed the kids and drove them to their "state certified" charter school where they'll eat a state approved lunch.

I got back in my state registered, emissions compliant, insured (by state requirement) car and drove the legal speed limit back to the house. I then walked through my Scottsdale code compliant yard (no weeds in our "desert" landscaping")into the house, drank pasteurized (USDA required) juice, and ate cereal processed in an inspected facility with milk from an USDA compliant dairy. I then took my FDA approved prescription pills (from a licensed pharmacy of course) and played with the state-licensed dogs.

I took a call on my federally taxed cell phone (instead of the federally taxed land line), stopped by our FDIC insured bank (which received TARP money that it didn't want and is not allowed to pay back), and drove along city streets (paid for by sales and property taxes) to the closest Costco (which has a business license of course and pays mandated worker's comp). I bought beef franks made from inspected beef in an inspected facility, buns made in an OSHA compliant factory, and a gallon of Frank's in an approved plastic bottle.

All of this before 10:15 am.

I don't think you're grasping the basic issue at stake here. Maybe if we change some words around in the article, you'll see what the problem is:

The complainant noticed a sign that offered "special parking up to 10 hours" for $5 at the Journal Square Ramp on Saturdays and Sundays for white people. The price for everyone else was $8.

The Civil Rights Act, New Jersey state law and the city code of Jersey City do not distinguish between different forms of diversity. As an atheist living in an overwhelmingly religious society, I'd think you would be a little more conversant in what our rights are.

Ah, now I know how some of you think! I regularly take my bike to the Grove St. PATH as well as ride the streets in lieu of using my car. Generally speaking, JC is not a bike friendly town. There are no bike paths and a zillion potholes. Plus, this town is full of aggressive drivers who think bicyclists have no rights whatsoever. Some drivers get their kicks out of seeing how close they can come to brushing me off the road despite obeying the traffic laws. I hear the same from other cyclists too.

Occasionally I will go the wrong way on a 1 way street for various reasons. One of these reasons, believe it or not, is that I sometimes feel safer ? a rationale is it?s better to see who?s gonna play games and play chicken rather than get blindsided.

To the wise poster DS, all I have to say is I hope you get run over by a Mack truck while jaywalking. Cheers.


Cool story bro, see you on the streets. I might switch from playing chicken to "playing bricks". Hope you have a helmet.

Another "I don't know what Google is" post.

Heat requirements
If your lease requires the landlord to provide heat, the landlord must give you the amount of heat required by the state codes and the local town or city ordinance. Under the state housing codes, from October 1 to May 1, the landlord must provide enough heat so that the temperature in the apartment is at least 68 degrees from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., the temperature in the apartment must be at least 65 degrees. Cite: N.J.A.C. 5:10-14 et seq. and N.J.A.C. 5:28-1.12(m). Local health codes cover parts of the year not covered by housing codes.

By the way: those noises and odors assumed to be coming from the rear of the park were actually coming from one of the 2nd Street residential balconies - there's a known group of partiers out there quite often.


Don't tell me what I saw. I was there; you weren't. People were in the park. "Certain people" (trying to stay on topic here) hang out in front of that park at all hours of the night as it is, and they will continue to do so regardless of whether or not the park is open at night.

Just walked by during my evening walk and not only is the gate open, but I heard low voices coming from the back of the park, along with the smell of a notoriously aromatic controlled substance.

Good luck with your park. You'll #OOPS#ing need it.

Sorry if this post is not a reflection of positivity or whatever.

Why did they write "near the beacon"? Because fear sells newspapers when it has no other merits to be sold on.

I don't live at or near the Beacon so this wording does not really affect me.. still just wanted to point that out.
