The below is from… “The Jersey City: Past and Present website is a digital project of New Jersey City University (NJCU)”. Great site. Yvonne got some of it right the site gives much more detail. This is about the lots at Van Vorst and Grand Streets which is now Prep’s O'Keefe Commons. Gee sounds like the property is jinxed. Pilings not holding structure collapsed, a fire, damage from the Black Tom explosion, and a hurricane…interesting.

After 25 years, last day nears for Jersey City record store

Updated 1:22 PM; Posted 1:22 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — 1994 was a bad year for records.

With CD sales booming, vinyl sales accounted for less than 1 percent of all music purchases that year. Even cassettes made up nearly a quarter of sales.

Still, DJs and hip-hop artists and college students still bought old records, so there was a market when Stephen Gritzan opened Iris Records in a Brunswick Street storefront on March 1, 1994.

JERSEY CITY — Two high-rises slated for the same block near Journal Square were approved by the Jersey City Planning Board Tuesday night over the objections of a group of neighbors who say they fear increased traffic and parking problems.

The projects — 32 Oakland Ave. and 345 Baldwin Ave. — will include a total of 413 units and 202 parking spaces. They will sit on either end of a block that runs along Washburn Street, about a quarter-mile east of the Journal Square PATH transit hub.

Re: Reason #110 Why not take your car to Jersey City Ford

Wow 70+ mph on a narrow JC street that a lot of people use to walk to the Hudson Mall area. Someone could have walked from between two parked cars at any minute. True about Mayor Fulop should use it for his vision zero ads.

Years ago, the DiFeo family ran that Ford and all the other car dealerships in the area. I think they built their brand to become the biggest dealers on the East Coast. Came up with all kinds of sales first’s like their annual “Stadium Sale” in the old Roosevelt Stadium. They would pack it with hundreds of cars with some great deals. The DiFeo dealerships were great places to buy a car and have it serviced. They treated you like family. Well they eventually sold to I think a NY firm. When they took over you started to hear horror stories.


.

Here I will add to bodhipooh’s and others stories….

I purchased one or two cars when DiFeo had the dealerships no issues. Took one in for a repair after the new owners took over thinking I would get the same good service. I was wrong they held my car hostage for a week saying I needed all kinds of work done. I eventually told them just do what I came in for and give me the car back. Maybe a year later needed to replace the car. ( they probably f’ed it up) Saw an ad for a new car said it was 15K. Walked in and said I want this car for 15K. I was surprised the car was there is wasn’t a bait and switch. Guy said ok. Started to fill out the paper work to buy it. Sales person was interrupted by his “manager” saying he had to talk to him privately. Sales person comes back and says he must rip up the paper work they can’t let the car go for 15K. I said you are kidding right? He said no they can’t make any money off of the deal. The “manager” came out and talked to us and actually said he needs a good commission because he just purchased a new custom Harley. We just laughed in his face and left. Both the salesman and “manager” were begging us to come back. Went to a dealer in the burbs and purchased the same car for less than 15K. JC salesman called for 2 weeks after that asking why we left and he will make the deal sweeter. (lol) Also kept pressing us for the dealer’s name and deal we got in the burbs. Purchased I would say three cars over the years after that incident all outside of JC. Their loss the “manager” could have made nice commissions off those 3 cars for the up keep of his Harley.

Hudson County prosecutors say video footage shows a 19-year-old East Orange man shooting at a vehicle in Jersey City and wounding two men just days before he was shot in the Newport Centre mall food court.

Jalil Holmes, one of two men charged in the Jan. 9 daytime shooting on Grant Avenue, will remain behind bars while his case moves through the courts, a Hudson County Superior Court judge decided Thursday. Holmes is charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of aggravated assault and weapons offenses.

By Bill Gallo Jr. | Posted January 21, 2019 at 10:30 AM

All of those taxes we pay in New Jersey! Where does all that money go?
On the county level most of it goes to pay the salaries of county employees whether it be in public works or the prosecutor’s office.

Those county taxes you pay also go to pay elected county representatives, your freeholders.

Hudson County is governed by a nine-member freeholder board.

Freeholder chairman: $47,943

Freeholder vice chairman: $46,898

Other freeholders: $44,807

The 2018 salaries are an increase over what freeholders were paid in 2017: Chairman, $46,774; vice chairman, $45,754 and other freeholders, $43,714.

You cost me a box of a dozen Dunkin Donuts (hitting my wallet and waistline) and a few other items from stores surrounding the BK. I am just relaying what I was told by some employees. It seems a few weeks ago there was some police/fire department action. The roof was leaking into the store and it was shutdown. I looked in the windows but didn’t see anything this morning with all the heavy rain you would have thought there would be a mess. Maybe it was in the kitchen or it is now fixed. Yes, I saw the now hiring sign maybe they are getting ready for a comeback.

They really should update the interior. That movie star theme is dated although the car is still cool. Ok so maybe the Arnold Terminator picture is too. With the area picking up…a 68 unit apartment building now open ( https://www.16bennett.com/ )and 120 and 600 unit buildings planned across from rt 440. Hip it up a little.

PS- there is a yelp review from 2/2018 that talks about the bad roof leaks. But you would have thought it would have been fixed a year later.
