Give him a break, he was only illustrating to the people around him what he thinks of the people of Jersey City and his own style of governing them.

When ex-offenders don't know their rights or are prevented from exercising their rights, particularly the right to vote, our entire community suffers."

I only hope I'm not around when the disenfranchised ex-offender exercises his/her right to commit crime again.

You may want to check out this beach in town, although the website hasn't been updated since pre-9/11, I'm sure its still there.
If link doesn't work google Pat's Beach, Jersey City.

If you want this problem solved, you have to get aggressive. Go to and become active in your neighborhood association, talk with your neighbors, there is strength in numbers. Get organized. Complain to the Jersey City Alcohol Beverage Control Commission as well as the state board. Call the Jersey Journal. Video tape the situation, video tape the police inaction, go to council meetings be relentless or you won't get anything done. The people who own that place have been around here along time, they know people, you have your work cut out for you. Good luck

And you obviously didn't grow up anywhere in JC either. Little India is no dirtier than many other parts of JC. Ever stroll around Christopher Columbus, Palisades Ave or Bergen? The fact that this city is dirty has more to do with poor city infrastructure i.e. not enough trash receptacles and a failure of this city to ticket offending businesses/persons responsible than your limited assessment of a particular area. If you want to keep up your rant about how dirty little India is, I think you might have better luck at your next klan meeting and not on a thread that is [unsuccessfully] supposed to be about the American Can building.



Wake up, there is definitely room for improvement in Little India and stating the obvious does not make one a racist.

The ad/letter contains no acknowledgement of zoning and other violations.

Hopefully, this is a good sign.




The letter was signed, Tony Soprano CEO.

Steve,

Pride, accountablity, thinking about the future of the city instead of the quck fix? If he's adds all of these variables to the equation, I think we know what the mayor will do. He's taking the money.

I for one really appreciate Steve's work on our behalf. Steve has kept open the lines of communication that usually close the day after elections. He could have easily buddied up with the machine and spend his time slamming beers at any one of a number wateringholes from here to Jounal Square. He could easily pass the buck and tell you why his office is not responsible for the problem your having and give you the telephone number of someone who supposedly is.
He's a young guy who could be doing a milion other things besides working hard against a group of people who are schooled in the art of bulls**t and graft. For anyone who's been around this place for more than a few years, we know that's something different.

Food For Thought

This is a newpaper report from June 2001.

What happened?




Jersey City
On Friday, June 1, 2001, the Associated Press reported that in the year 2000 Jersey City had the largest drop in serious crime among New Jersey's largest cities - more than Newark, Paterson and Elizabeth.

According to the AP, not only is Jersey City ranked exceptionally well statewide, it is also bucking national trends. While the drops in rates have stagnated nationally, Jersey City's continued to fall at an impressive rate.

The Jersey City Police Department released statistics today for the 1st quarter of 2001, which show that Jersey City's drop in crime will continue to outperform state and national trends. According to the 2001 first quarter crime statistics, Jersey City experienced an 8% decline during the 1st quarter of the year. Assaults and burglary have both dropped 17%, larceny dropped 9% and auto-theft dropped 5%.

This guy has to go... do we have to wait until all his cronys are in place so he can keep abusing the office even when he's gone.

When the chief and his buddy use the guys wife to start
security company, that is what seriously underminds the public's confidence in the JCPD. When the crime rates increase and response to the average citizens problems decrease, that is what seriously underminds public confidence in the JCPD.

When a councilman elected by the people calls attention to the problems and demands accountability it is not called grandstanding it is called doing his job. Get it straight!

No Steve,

Thank you for trying to do the job you were elected to do. It's refreshing to know your not just collecting a paycheck. Keep up the good work... We are all behind you!

In the end this is not about yuppies or non-yuppies it is about accountablility, and since he has been in office Mr. Fulop has tried to make a difference, you may not agree with what he is doing but at least he stands up for his opinions and does not hide behind the doors of City Hall. Did you ever try to get anything done before Fulop was in, nothing but the runaround.
Pure Baloney!

Neither form is acceptable, that being said the end result of this greed will fall squarely on the homeowners who have settled in this area to build a life and not turn a profit.

This isn't about The Golden Cicada winning, is about the developers who want the land winning, and in Jersey City the developers always win. In all my years in Jersey City (since 1987) I can count on one hand the amount of times I've seen that restaurant open until recently, which just happens to coincide with the land issue. So this is not a win for the ?little man? against the machine, this is about the machine pulling a fast one on us all.
Enjoy the tax-abated luxury skyrise across the grammar school, I?m sure the children won?t mind the jackhammers pounding everyday for the next two years.
