Re: What do you think about the partying at night by the Exchange Place PATH?

Ian, If you don't have anything constructive to add to the conversation, don't bother with bad attempts at humor.

Re: IanMac47: Who really cares? Are you the alcohol police? The fun police? Why does it bother you that a bunch of people were having a good time? Was it because you weren't invited? Is it because someone took away your teddy bear when you were two years old and you have trust issues? Why is it necessary to make this your business? Were these people threatening you with too much fun? Where they assaulting you and shoving a funnel down your throat forcing you to consume binge drink with them?

@ianmac47 this is the third city I've lived in since 2000; it's all i know.

@corybraiterman Along the waterfront at night are families out on an evening stroll and lots of commuters walking home. Hardly non-residential.

What do you think about the partying at night by the Exchange Place PATH?

After walking home from the PATH at Exchange Place tonight at 11pm, and seeing the amount of people partying, I'm starting to think it is getting out of hand.

Just now I walked past no less than three groups of people with open containers. Bottles of boozes, beers, plastic cups.

I find it quite shocking that this has become the norm, and there is no police presence at all.

In fact, wasn't a person shot and thrown into the river there not too long ago?

What are your thoughts on this?

Hey now that I have my boat in storage at Liberty Harbor Marina, if anyone wants to paddle together we should try to meet up! I can be reached at briandifeo[at]yahoo[dot]com.

Update: I am not going to use Liberty Storage on the south side of LSP because they close weeknights at 7pm and Sundays at 5pm - not very conducive to my paddling schedule.

Good News: I called Liberty Harbor Marina a few times over the weeks with no leads, so I stopped by there today. I met with the right person and he is happy to accommodate me and my kayak. Finally! I am waiting to hear back from him on the monthly cost but I am sure it will be less than the storage facility.

The spot will work out nice, it is their dry-dock area. They actually have an abandoned container/trailer that I can lock it up inside. I will be able to drive right up to my kayak any day until 9pm - perfect.

Also, the person there is very interested in accommodating a group of us if we wanted to band together and get a container or an actual structure very close to the water. Once I know what the price is for my kayak and begin keeping it there, I will start a new thread in hope of finding other Jersey City kayak enthusiasts that would be interested in organizing some sort of kayaking club.

dtjcview and brewster,

Thanks for the great idea and support! I like getting things like this done. I plan on visiting downtown boathouse and the brooklyn bridge kayak program this weekend and learn what I can about storage.

Cheers,

Brian

Thanks for all of the information everyone. The folks at Liberty Storage on the south side of LSP don't have any more storage that would fit a kayak, and the folks with Friends of LSP were helpful but still no spot for storage at the marinas. Any other ideas?

I will check out that program on the Hackensack for sure, thanks. Paulushooker - again I'd like to see that folbot in action some day!

The problem with the other boathouses are distance / convenience. That probably seems silly since they are quite close, but northern Hoboken, Brooklyn Bridge, and mid-town west are not all super convenient. Also from what I gather, they are sit-on-tops.

Anyway it seems from some of the people in this thread, a JC based storage facility and maybe someday our very own kayak club / boathouse might work. I'll keep harassing the marinas. If anyone has a kayak they would spend $50 a month to store/access let me know and I'll contact you if I have any leads at the marinas.

Thanks for all the ideas, everyone! Brian

elsquid and brewster, I have read that the inflatable kayaks are not ideal when the current and wind pick up. I agree it is intimidating, hopefully we can get a few people and form a paddle group!

paulushooker - I have been looking at the folbot boats, and I would really like to see yours in action! Let me know if you want to demo it for me.

elsquid,

I live in Paulus Hook and I am noticing more and more touring kayaks out and about. There are definitely some good destinations to go to, and I think the Jersey side would be quite safe - I bike the coast every weekend and the boat traffic is low.

A quick update on my quest - I've spoken to a few people who are insisting that the city is going to continue the waterfront walkway this summer. It will stretch around the Clock, and is supposed to include some sort of kayaking component. This could be just what I am looking for. Anyone know who I can contact to learn more?

Thanks for the info Mike. I have no place to keep the kayak that is currently at a friend's home in the burbs, so I'm searching for storage on or close to the water.

I have a touring kayak that should be fine in moderate currents. You have any tall tales of being out there in your boat?

Did you say there is kyacking in LSP on Sundays?
Can you post details as to where you can launch and if it is an organized thing that you need to pay for? And must you bring your own boat?


Hi, you can learn about the 2011 kayak schedule at this site: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/liberty.html

- enjoy!

Thanks for the info Brewster. Yes I need to keep it somewhere, preferably near the water, but I'll reach out to you if I want to learn more about keeping it in your storage area.

I also am wondering if there are other paddlers with a similar problem. If anyone knows the right people at Liberty Harbor, I agree with you that a storage rack could be lucrative. If a few of us approach them maybe they'll listen.

Finally, if anyone knows about an effort to bring something like the Hoboken boathouse to JC, a good area would be the cove directly north of the Hyatt. There is an abandoned floating dock already there and it is a lovely, underutilized space.

I know LSP has kayaking on Sundays, and NYC has a few places that offer it, but does anyone know of a JC effort to bring kayaking to the Hudson? Or.... do you know where I can store a kayak? The marinas don't seem interested in accommodating me.

Thanks,

Brian

Re: coworking space/shared workspace in JC, are you interested?

Hi Folks,

Well the effort to bring affordable, collaborative workspace to downtown Jersey City has been revived again! Join us July 7 to have a preliminary Meetup http://www.meetup.com/jerseycityworks/. If you are curious about coworking spaces and want to meet other independent professionals, now's your chance.

Thanks,

Brian
