When I commuted from Harsimus Cove to the WTC, in the mornings I would walk past Grove St to Exchange Place.

It is only about a 1/2 mile from Grove St to Exchange Place taking about 7 to 8 minutes

There are two train lines from Exchange Place to the WTC
During peak morning. Nwk to WTC scheduled frequency is 4 minutes. Hob to WTC is scheduled every 6 minutes
Train to WTC arrived at Exchange Place usually every 90 seconds to 3 minutes
A lot of people get off at Exchange Place making room to get on the train.
Don't have a delay on a train waiting to get to the Exchange Place platform

I always carried a ferry ticket with me in case something happened to PATH and no trains were going to the WTC.
Didn't have to wait on the ticket line before boarding a ferry.

Overall walking to Exchange Place didn't add more than a couple of minutes to my commute, and it was a more enjoyable commute. I liked the walk and don't mind the cold.


Shhhh.... please don't talk about it or the platform at Exchange Place will end up as bad as Grove.

Nobody is justifying a crime here. I didn't cite illegal immigration out of thin air. It's a fact that it exists because the market exists. You want to bury your head in the sand, do it at your own thread. Let me know what is really wrong with chain immigration and why the work of one criminal suddenly invalidates decades of accepted practices where millions of productive lives have been brought into this country. Keep talking about your tribal nonsense as if that has any bearing to the facts.


Exactly. The fact that Stillinjc has excited heights tells you all you need to know about their argument. These issues are incredibly complex and are going to require a lot more thought than it takes to jam a massive tax break through congress in days just so you can appease your donors and have a "win". They won't be solved by one "team" "winning" in this endless political super bowl we seem to be engaged in.

I'll even agree with part of Monroe's point - there do need to be limits on immigration. However, unless we are willing to start paying triple for our groceries, it is unrealistic to think you can just shut off well-established labor flows. Jargon and selective imagery is great for political rallies. Governing is much more difficult and requires thoughtful consideration.

We know that in everything we do here in America, just like with legal immigration, there will be some bad apples. That doesn't mean Law Enforcement with a few dirty cops is suddenly destroying America. Or maybe it is, and you are just picking and choosing what suits your politics. I like to think that America is much stronger than the weak dumpster-fire that you and Trump like to portray.

Just for shits, why don't you tell me when the USA didn't have chain immigration and tell us just how lovely and so much greater it is to now? Because that's what you want right? Eliminate chain immigration?


Even pointing out that the other 22 of 23 "chain" immigrants aren't criminals misses the point. Think in terms of the millions upon millions who have entered the country through this process - millions of productive people who helped build and grow the country. The miniscule number of people who are used as examples to support all sorts of draconian policies are statistically insignificant relative to the total population of "chain" immigrants.

Don't get dragged into selective and half-witted "whataboutism" arguments. It's just a deflection one uses when they have nothing of substance to support their misguided position.

Re: Hypocrite Solomon’s dirty push Poll

I didn't read the article - I was responding to what the poster quoted, which usually is the point of emphasis. Granted, it's poorly written so maybe I misunderstood.

As for what is obvious - I would think being able to recognize that a vacationing lawyer enjoys economic advantage and privilege not available to the average person would be pretty simple.

To another point the article makes - the money Solomon has raised or contributed: wtf cares? The issue with political contributions isn't that they are made or necessarily how big they are, it's when they come from sources that would likely have expectations for something in return. Is it an advantage for Solomon that he has college roommates and aunts and uncles, et al who have done well and are willing to contribute to his campaign? Sure it is. Or that he comes from a family that seemingly has wealth (I don't know this to be the case firsthand) and he can fund a decent amount of his campaign himself? Of course. It would be great if money could be removed from politics - today, that isn't the world we live in. And if money has to be involved, I'd rather it come from someone in financial services in Chicago or a lawyer in Miami than a business or organization in Jersey City whose commercial interests are materially affected by the votes of a city council member they helped get elected.

I'll be curious to see the next ELEC reports for Symes - she's played the money card very well so far. She cried poverty, but knew that late money was coming. How much more will be an interesting tidbit to find out.

She could decide tomorrow to work again - she is a corporate attorney who has decided to take time off to pursue another goal, whether for altruistic reasons or otherwise. "Working men and women" getting by on living wages don't have the option to flip a switch and take a $150k - $200k job. I would hope you see the difference.

Just stop this nonsense.

Kudos to the writer -- "Whatever your feelings are between these two candidates - one thing is clear to me. Rebecca has spent time making Jersey City residents voices heard, and involved them publicly as contributors. Why hasn’t Solomon assimilated to our community in the same way or why doesn’t he have contributors publicly giving him money?"


Don't be ridiculous. "Unemployed" was a choice for her, not as though the mine closed and she's just scraping by. I am not making any judgment on her service or desire to contribute to the better good of the community but be honest - certain people come from backgrounds where going without a job for a period of time is an option (think Fulop in the year leading up to his first mayoral election.)

Lumping her in with people labeled as "working men and women" and as part of a discussion of people working for "living wages" is insulting to folks who actually live under those conditions (and not by choice.)

Working men and women? Not sure what is meant by "working", but Symes is a corporate attorney earning far more than a living wage and access to a considerable network of funding. Please spare me the cry of poverty on her behalf.

Without Fulop and two other council candidates on the ballot in December it won't be very hard to get over 50%.


You'd better hope Hanussak can't figure out how to get the Nanwandi vote out - because I can't imagine there are any among Nanwandi's 876 votes that would swing to your dad.

Said another way - Fulop beat Matsikoudis AND the "didn't vote" by more than 2:1. That's a resounding win.

Well yeah, since he ended up with 20,981, I think he still has 14k+ votes. Matsikoudis is running a Washington Generals campaign - seems like Fulop (even with fatigue/disappointment) should be 2:1 at least. Some people will vote for Matsikoudis as a protest, but he doesn't seem to have any meaningful, passionate constituency. The real limiter on Fulop's ability to run up impressive numbers won't be Matsikoudis as much as it will be turnout, I'd think.

So here's the funny part, Ms. Congeniality - I never said one way or the other how I feel about the topic. You also don't know whether I've signed the petition or not. I'll go back to what I said earlier:

"Knowing how to motivate people instead of preaching to them from a position of assumed moral superiority is the key."

Name calling doesn't help, either.

Either way, did you sign the petition? if not, you should just STFU then.


And if you knew anything about how statistics are used, you never would have said that. Sample size applies to polling. You aren't taking a poll - you are collecting signatures. Is your poll that you asked 270,000 people if they would sign your self-serving petition and only 300 did?

I like your approach to building consensus though - very inclusive: Sign our petition or eff you! That might have at least something to do with why 269,700 people haven't signed...

As is often the case with Civic JC and the like - there's a lot of noise but not much effective action. Knowing how to motivate people instead of preaching to them from a position of assumed moral superiority is the key. How to motivate people around here is the million dollar question, though.... Apathy rules here.

Once you fall on your head on concrete, all bets are off. Yes, Mikey - people ride much faster than the pace of a walk. I honest to god had someone ride by me on a small motorcycle a few weeks ago. On a sidewalk. And not one of the motorized bicycles that you see everywhere now (I see those on the sidewalk on Grand, frequently). Here are three bike/pedestrian fatalities that happened on sidewalks and another very serious accident:

Me too. The car culture in JC is "anything goes" because they know there's simply no enforcement. Use a turn lane to skip all that traffic going straight? No problem. Right on red forcing the oncoming car to screech it's brakes? No problem. Ignoring stop signs? You know the answer.

And those are all the moving violations that you need actual expensive cops for. Parking flunkies are cheap by comparison, they "should" be able to shower the city with cash, but this being JC, somehow the JCPA struggles, with spotty enforcement that only reinforces the sense of lawlessness.

I could easily solve the whole illegal parking thing in JC. Give a parking flunky a smartphone and train them to photograph the car in a way leaving no doubt of the location and that they're stopped. Pic are instantly transmitted to an office worker who verifies the legitimacy of the infraction using geotagging and timestamp, and boom, out goes a ticket like the red light cams did. Too close to corner, in the lane at Newark, in a bike lane, double parked? Done.

Even better, how about an app for citizens to take the pics. Big brotherish? Sure. But we need relief from the inconsiderate pricks.
