Project Greenville's Winter Wonderland gearing up, wants wonder-filled art

Updated 9:48 AM; Posted 9:47 AM
By The Jersey Journal

With the temperature finally dropping in what many would consider an otherwise frosty year, most people would probably say some warmth from the holidays would be nice. Project Greenville is preparing for its own attempt to add holiday cheer via Jersey City's southern side with its annual Winter Wonderland Show, on what will be the year's last JC Friday, Dec. 1, and on Saturday, Dec. 2.

For the show, Project Greenville coordinator Elizabeth Deegan is taking submissions of holiday- and winter-themed art of all kinds until Nov. 28. Those interested in submitting can contact projectgreenville@gmail.com or call 646-361-1858.

2 accused of running $30M mortgage fraud scam in N.J., feds say

Updated 10:10 AM; Posted 7:07 AM
By Noah Cohen NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

An Essex County-based attorney and another man were arrested Thursday and accused of running a mortgage fraud scam that involved dozens of properties around New Jersey and bilked financial institutions out of more than $30 million, federal prosecutors said.

Christopher Goodson, 44, an attorney from Newark, and Anthony Garvin, 47, of Jersey City, were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud in the short sale mortgage fraud conspiracy that lasted from January 2011 through August, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for New Jersey.

Conspirators in the scam setup simultaneous fraudulent transactions using the same target property, according to a federal criminal complaint. The scam allegedly involved properties in Jersey City, Clifton, Union and other communities.

Jersey City mourns 'up and coming' firefighter killed in car crash

Updated 4:01 PM; Posted 3:58 PM
By Caitlin Mota The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY - The 29-year-old off-duty firefighter killed in an early morning crash died two days before he was set to take his promotional test to become a captain with the Jersey City Fire Department.

Matthew Nierstedt, a decorated veteran with the U.S. Navy, was the backseat passenger in a vehicle involved in a two-car crash on Paterson Plank Road near Congress Street. He left his home at some point Wednesday evening to drop off donations for the fire department's holiday to drive.

JERSEY CITY - The firefighter killed in a violent early morning car collision today was a U.S. Navy veteran who joined the fire department last year.

Matthew Nierstedt was a passenger in a vehicle involved in the head-on collision near Congress Street and Paterson Plank Road at about 2 a.m. Sources say at least one of the drivers was seriously injured.

Nierstedt was sworn in as a firefighter on Nov. 16, 2016. He was among a unique class of 19 firefighters who all served in the military and were trained as emergency medical technicians.

These markets are the crème de la crème of New Jersey real estate right now.

With housing prices rising while inventory is at a 20-year low, the housing market in the Garden State is ripe for a housing boom. And towns from Hudson to Monmouth are vying for a spot at the top.

Looks like a runoff for Jersey City's Ward B council race

Updated 6:01 PM; Posted 6:01 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Mira Prinz-Arey, who finished in first place in the Ward B council race Tuesday, is still shy of the number of votes she would need to avoid a runoff next month.

There was a chance provisional votes would have given Prinz-Arey, 45, enough of a share of the vote to unseat incumbent Councilman Chris Gadsden. But those votes were counted today and Prinz-Arey remains at 49 percent of the vote, a county elections clerk told The Jersey Journal.

Results now up in the air for two Jersey City races

By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Two days after polls closed in Jersey City's municipal and school board contests, the results of two races remain up in the air and may not be decided until Monday.

In the Ward B City Council race, Mira Prinz-Arey is within one percentage point of reaching the threshold that would allow her to claim victory without a runoff on Dec. 5 (she would need more than 50 percent of the vote). Prinz-Arey, an ally of Mayor Steve Fulop, challenged incumbent Councilman Chris Gadsden. Unofficial results show Gadsden, first elected to the council last year, is about 500 votes behind Prinz-Arey.

Five Jersey City council members returning to council

By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Voters are returning at least five Jersey City council members back to the council in January, but Mayor Steve Fulop won't know if he retains control of the nine-member body until the December runoffs.

All three incumbent at-large council people -- Rolando Lavarro, Daniel Rivera and Joyce Watterman -- won re-election tonight by wide margins, roughly three-to-one over their closest competitors. Lavarro, 47, who first won election to the council in 2011, looks like he may be the top vote-getter with more than 17,600 votes.

Fulop wins lopsided victory in Jersey City mayor's race
Updated 10:08 PM; Posted 9:31 PM

By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Mayor Steve Fulop claimed victory in his re-election effort tonight over his sole challenger, attorney Bill Matsikoudis.

"I'm thankful and I'm ecstatic," Fulop told The Jersey Journal.

Fulop, 40, a Democrat, campaigned largely on continuing what he has deemed his administration's successes -- expanding real-estate development to areas outside the upscale Downtown, boosting the ranks of the police force -- and argued that electing his opponent would represent a return to the policies of the mayor Fulop defeated in 2013, Jerramiah Healy.

Bill Matsikoudis is a washed up political hack running for Mayor of Jersey City, New Jersey. Knowing he most likely does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning the election he walks the streets at night hoping for a sign something that will give him an advantage in the election. He laid all of his hopes on the release of a tape made way back in 2014 that would prove that the current administration was corrupt. He could not have been part of the only corrupt administration in Jersey City’s history he thought to himself . There has to be others that were just as corrupt as the Healy administration and the tape would prove it. Sadly after sitting on the tape for almost four years its release proved to be a big NOTHING. It didn’t even make it to the Jersey Journals front page it was on page 7. But he still had hopes of winning that coveted JJ endorsement. After all ace reporter Terrence ALWAYS sought him out for a negative quote on any piece about Mayor Fulop and they did give him that free two page spread about his trip to Greece. (and a sleeper it was)

Oddly enough as he was walking the streets he was almost knocked out of his two boots and almost dropped his slices of pizza by a silver colored vehicle that was swerving down the street with eerie music coming out of it. It stopped a few yards away in front of the Astor Bar a favorite hangout for old politicians. The wing door opened with a blast of smoke as a figure emerged singing of all things Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues.''. Matsikoudis could not believe his eyes or ears it was none other than Jersey City’s Singing Mayor Healy. He had not seen him since their big election loss in May 2013. Healy called him over and asked him if he wanted to go inside for a drink that he had a proposition for him to consider. Matsikoudis and Healy disappeared into the Bar. While in the bar Matsikoudis looked around making sure there were no hidden cameras or mic’s in the pepper shakers.

After an hour of catching up Healy revealed his offer. He would guarantee a Matsikoudis win if he could in turn become Jersey City Corporation Council. Matsikoudis thought it over and asked Healy for more information. Healy then proceeded to lay out the plan. Feeling a little dejected after his loss in 2013 to “that young Wall Street interloper” he got into the used car business for some side money. (even though he knew his buddy Degise would come through with a sweet County job soon) His singing gigs seemed to have dried up after his loss… the seniors in the old folks homes would not have him not even at Christmas time for his famous rendition of White Christmas. One day a strange looking man with wild white hair rang his bell, looking out of the window he was relieved it was not the FBI. Healy opened the door and asked the gent what he wanted. “I have a car for you, I need some cash” he said. Healy listened to the odd guy’s story about needing money for projects and purchased the car. After some time he realized it was THE Back to the Future car but gee it didn’t seem like a prop it was a functioning car with all kinds of bells and whistles. Could he go back in time?

Matsikoudis juices started to flow if Healy had a car that could time travel they could go back in time to 2004 and start their 9 year run all over again. But this time instead of doing NOTHING for Jersey City they would do all of the things that then Councilman Fulop wanted to do which they voted down the things Mayor Fulop did accomplish once he became Mayor. That’s it that is the advantage he was waiting for. He would do everything that should have been done 13 years ago. The people of JC would than gladly vote Matsikoudis in as Mayor in 2017 because of his record under Healy.

The pair walked outside to the car and set the time dial to November 12, 2004 all the while Healy was singing a ridiculous tune ….

“So take me away, I don't mind. But you better promise me, I'll be back in time.
Gotta get back in time. Back back to the Healy/ Matsikoudis future.
Gotta get back in time. Gotta get back in time. Get me back in time.


They both laughed and rubbed their hands together like Scrooge seeing gold coins. Matsikoudis printed off Mayor Fulop’s 2017 campaign literature so they would know what to accomplish when they hit 2004. Healy was about to punch the big red button but stopped and asked Matsikoudis if they could make two quick stops. Matsikoudis agreed. The first one was to a porch in the Heights section of JC and then Bradly Beach. Bill understood and didn’t say a word. (but he did hum that classic Rolling Stones song…"Got some puer…. Oooh oooh oooh oooh") They returned from those past dates and a smiling Healy pushed the button to go back to 2004 to right after he became Mayor.

Healy: Hey Bill let’s start with the easy stuff that the interlopers would love murals and bike lanes.

Matsikoudis: Wait a minute Jerry the first thing is to strike that word from your vocabulary use the term newcomers or urban explorers.

Healy: Got it. OK then its murals and bike lanes than we will get The Jewel of Jersey City Journal Square developed pronto. I guess our little trick of announcing the rebirth every few months before an election and doing NOTHING after the election finally caught up with us. Let’s do it right this time. Just think how far JSquare would be by now if we only did it right back then…err I mean now oh well.

Matsikoudis: Yeah I always wondered how we got away with having a big empty lot Up The Square for all those years… wow voters of JC were real suckers both times. (both laughed again)

Healy: Then we will tackle affordable housing, Veterans issues, bike sharing, hiring more cops, attracting small businesses to JC. Hey I have a great idea how about we start a JC promotional campaign called “Jersey City Make It Yours”. (both laughed so hard this time they almost pissed themselves)

More to come…………………….I have a dinner date with Jerry Jersey….

Little does the unsuspecting Matsikoudis know that he is possibly being played by the ever sneaky Healy…hmm what election loss in 2013????

.




** ******** part II *************

It was clear sailing for Healy and Matsikoudis they had everything covered. When a “situation” arose they would think to themselves WWSD (What Would Steve Do) but after thinking about it they laughed and changed it to WDSD (What Did Steve Do). They had everyone fooled. As the May 2005 election date fast approached they were not worried in the least bit. How could they possible lose if they already won in the future? They did make it a little easier to win when Healy went back in time before their trip. No he didn’t erase the party he went to THAT night, or skip the shower, but he did invest in a few plastic garbage cans. Those kids tried their hardest to get Healy out on that porch but plastic cans make no noise.

Years went by 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. Councilman Fulop actually got along quite well with Mayor Healy and Corporation Council Matsikoudis. Gone were the days of constant battling with Bill and the rest of the Healy controlled Council. Steve loved and voted yes on every ordinance that was introduced. He did shake his head a few times thinking to himself gee I was thinking about introducing that very same bill. Odd.

In early 2009 when their re-election campaign was getting in gear Bill came to Healy with some news. He told him not to forget what was coming down the pike not to forget about the little guy in the black suit. Oh yeah Healy replied first things first let’s get Deputy Mayor Leona off of our Team as treasurer. Then he thought….WDSD. Oh yeah let’s call a meeting and have everyone know that we feel like something fishy is going on. That we are stopping all new developer meetings for a while. If there are any new bids out cancel them. Also let’s eat lunch in for a few months until this mess is over. I think the Medical Center Diner delivers he said. Bill chuckled hey ask them if they can throw in a pepper shaker.

They of course won the May 2009 election without a hassle. The little Brady Beach incident never happened. Great idea having that guy send flowers to his girlfriend the day that their argument was going to happen. What argument he thought? Thank God for 1-800-FLOWERS. It was nice knowing no surprises as in FBI knocks on doors were coming in July. Whew.

They were stealing Councilman Fulop’s idea’s right and left. They didn’t even have to have Council President Brennan create the anti-Fulop ordinance of 2010. The one that stopped Fulop from re-introducing ordinances for 6 months at a time. They didn’t need that 6 month lead time to come up with something to top Councilman Fulop they had his idea already.

Even though Jersey City seemed to be doing fine Councilman Fulop still decided to run for Mayor in 2012 against Healy. Why know he thought. Healy and Matsikoudis just laughed…ah not this time buddy boy. No dirt was circulating on Healy so it looked like he would be re-elected yet again. And so he was. It was a lopsided landslide in Healy’s favor. The evening online nj.com headlines blasted the news. “HEALY WINS”. Matsikoudis was already thinking 2017…hmmm but now so was Healy. Sorry Bill. When Councilman Fulop called Mayor Healy to concede that night Matsikoudis could be heard in the back ground snickering like a little school girl. Odd thing is so was Coucilman Fulop he for some reason cracked a laugh as he was talking to Healy.

Well as the morning light appeared over beautiful Jersey City the Jersey Journal Carriers were throwing their morning print editions of the JJ on subscriber’s porches. Newly re-elected Mayor Healy opened his front door to retrieve his paper anxious to see that winning headline. Thinking to himself take that Wall Street boy and F that loud mouth Sound Machine and neverleft. As Healy opened his copy he nearly dropped to his knees..the headline read “Jersey City voters elect Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop mayor”. Why how could that be? The call from Matsikoudis didn’t clear anything up for them. Hmmm.

Well unbeknownst to the Abbott and Costello of Jersey City politics FORWARD thinking Mayor Fulop did what he does best think FORWARD. As he was riding his bike to City Hall he always passed Ray’s Towing on Grand Street. He always saw something covered in the rear of the lot. Knowing that Healy and Matsikoudis were up to something Mayor Fulop asked Ray what was under the cover. Ray said it was a prop used in the Back to the Future II movie. Steve purchased it, drove it home and set the dial to November 11, 2004.The rest is history. He un-did all of the harm that Healy did playing with time travel. Thinking to himself it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.

That’s it.

“Bill Matsikoudous is the Steak” “WHAT AM I HUNGRY FOR?”

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw the above lines was seeing EX Mayor Healy (The Clone Source) feverishly pouring pepper onto his meal for 2 minutes at the MC Diner in the FBI Operation Bid Rig video. Funny I think it was steak and potatoes. You know the Diner where the FBI had hidden camera’s recording the payoffs, bribes, and deals between Healy city employees and Dwek. The administration that Bill “The Healy Clone” Matsikoudis was a key player in.

Colonel Healy and his side kick Sergeant Matsikoudis let corruption fester under their noses for who knows how long. It took the FBI to step in and STOP it. This quote from that famous Hogan Hero’s character Sgt. Hans Georg Schultz comes to mind….”I see NOTHING”, “I know NOTHING”, “I hear N-N-N-NOTHING!”

Healy = Matsikoudous Matsikoudous = Healy

Send a loud and clear message today that we don't want The Healy Clone sniffing around in 2021 either.

Don't forget to vote for the ballot questions on Tuesday

TRENTON -- Don't forget to check the bottom of the ballot when you vote today, New Jersey voters. You have two chances to decide how a limited amount of public money should be spent.

One ballot question asks whether New Jersey should borrow $125 million to help modernize and expand public libraries. The bonds would pay for half the cost of any project, while the municipality or county that operates the library would absorb the rest.

The second question asks voters whether the money paid by polluting companies should be used for any other purpose other than remediating tainted land or water.

Senator John F. Kennedy Journal Square speech Nov 6, 1960…

Did you know that Senator John F. Kennedy had campaign stops in JC? (if you read my post 4 years ago you probably did..lol) One at the Armory 9/15/1960 and one at Journal Square 11/6/1960 two days before he was elected President Kennedy on 11/8/1960. If you read the speeches you can see how important the vote was in Hudson County and Jersey City at one time. Back then everyone came out to vote. I remember my family getting dressed up to go vote, it was a big deal what a privilege.(I think my mom made me wear a new suit from Robert Hall) The turnout in HC and JC got Governors and even Presidents elected. Now we get around 20,000 people out of 140,000 registered JC voters to come out and vote. How sad it that? Please vote now.

“…10 years ago as a Congressman I came to this city at 1 o'clock in the morning for a Democratic rally and you were all here then. I don't know whether you have left this hall in the last 10 years, but only in this city could they get a turnout for a Democratic candidate at 8 o'clock in the morning, or at midnight. That is the kind of a Democratic city to have. [Applause.]” JFK 9/15/1960 ARMORY JERSEY CITY

Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy, Armory, Jersey City, NJ September 15, 1960

“This campaign is vitally important to the State of New Jersey, the State of New Jersey is vitally important to the country. This county may well determine what the State of New Jersey does, and the 14 electoral votes [response from the audience] - 16 electoral votes of New Jersey - this is the only audience that knows how many electoral votes they have. [Laughter and applause.] This must be a very politically active city. Is it? [Response from the audience.] There is a rumor to that effect. So it is 16 votes. That is even better. Those 16 votes may well determine who will be the next President of the United States. [Applause.]”JFK 11/6/1960 JOURNAL SQUARE JERSEY CITY.

Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy, Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ November 6, 1960

Giant clock planned for new Journal Square tower

Updated 5:01 PM; Posted Today 5:01 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

Jersey City may get its own version of Big Ben.

The developers behind the three-tower Journal Squared project won approval from the city Planning Board recently to add a giant digital clock to the next tower slated for construction.

Unlike London's iconic Big Ben, which sits atop a 315-foot tower, the Journal Squared timepiece will be much closer to the ground. A rendering of the building shows the clock near the ground floor of the 759-foot building. It will face south, toward the plaza that leads into the Journal Square PATH hub.

Crews broke ground on the second Journal Squared tower earlier this year. The 72-story high-rise is expected to be completed in 2020. It is the tallest of the nine high-rises planned for Journal Square.
