Right..SHI had a few small traces of contamination, SHII did have more and it was dug out and removed. SHIII (Droyers Point ) had the most and sections of that phase were clay capped and built on.

The SH development didn’t need a tax abatement because it was planned and built at the height of a real estate market boom in the late 80’s. It was going to be detached 2 family houses but the plan changed to condos. (to fit more units in $$) There were long buyer lines at every development being built all over NJ especially Hovnanian projects. People would camp out for days. (sort of like todays Apple and sneaker releases) As I posted before a lottery was held for SHI. Tens of thousands of people from all over the tri state area signed up for a chance to buy a condo with the models not even finished yet. They had the drawing down at the LSP RR building. It was a mad house.

When the market collapsed in the 90’s with SHI being 80% complete there was a fear that the three phases would not be built but they were and are still going strong.

PS – people from SH go to Bayonne Park for recreation. (and they don't glow)

Liberty State Park advocates see victory ahead on marina plan

Updated 3:21 PM; Posted 2:26 PM

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- A Hudson County Superior Court judge said today he will decide by early next week whether to halt a proposed deal between New Jersey and a Texas company that would lead to a new marina on the southern end of Liberty State Park.

The judge's decision not to rule today heartened park advocates, who believe that the plan is dead now that Chris Christie is no longer governor. Today's 11 a.m. hearing concluded just two minutes before Phil Murphy, who has said he opposes the marina plan, succeeded Christie.

"Now we're in a safe victory zone of Gov. Murphy being in charge," Sam Pesin, president of Friends of Liberty State Park, told The Jersey Journal after the hearing. "And he has stated that his priority is the preservation of Liberty park as a special treasure for current and future generations."

Bamboozled: Plumbing giant A.J. Perri hit with record fine for deceiving customers
Updated 11:25 AM; Posted 9:15 AM (1/15/2018)


By Karin Price Mueller bamboozled@njadvancemedia.com

NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Plumbing giant A.J. Perri has been hit with a $100,000 fine - the largest ever levied by New Jersey's plumbing board - and has agreed to reform its deceitful business practices under a consent order reached with the state Attorney General's Office.

The deal, finalized last week, follows a Bamboozled investigation that found the company routinely performed expensive work that wasn't needed, incentivized employees to upsell jobs and used scare tactics on customers, including bogus claims that their equipment could explode at any time.

Bamboozled spoke to dozens of customers, along with current and former A.J. Perri employees, who painted a portrait of predatory practices fueled by a commission-based sales structure and pressure to meet sales goals.

"If you can't fly, run. If you can't run, walk. If you can't walk, crawl -- but move."

Those were the words of Martin Luther King Jr. as he spoke to a crowd of 2,000 jammed inside the Metropolitan A.M.E. Zion church in Jersey City on March 27, 1968. The speech marked King's second appearance in Jersey City in three years, and his last. Eight days later, the civil rights leader was slain by an assassin's bullet.

JERSEY CITY - A 6-year-old girl battling an aggressive form of cancer was surprised with a tea party fit for a princess, thanks to the staff at her school and a few local police officers.

Ayushi Patel, a first-grade student at School 27, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015. Her family and teachers describe her as being polite, warm, and ladylike. The past few months have been tough, with the 6-year-old unable to attend school regularly because of her illness.

But that hasn't stopped the Heights school community from rallying in support of Ayushi and treating her like royalty on Wednesday afternoon.

JERSEY CITY -- A 240-acre section of Liberty State Park that has been closed to the public for decades because of contamination would be transformed into a "mosaic" of freshwater wetlands, salt marshes, forests and grasslands under a plan announced today by Gov. Chris Christie's administration.

The state Department of Environmental Protection, under fire by park advocates for its plan to add a 45-acre marina to the southern end of the 1,200-acre park, intends to spend tens of millions of dollars on the restoration, using money obtained from polluters, DEP commissioner Bob Martin said today in a statement.

(1/3/2018) Liberty State Park advocates crow after initial court win on marina plan

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Liberty State Park advocates are crowing today after a judge put a temporary halt to a state plan to add a marina to the park, an action the advocates believe indicates they have a good chance of stopping the controversial marina plan entirely.

Hudson County Superior Court Judge Barry P. Sarkisian hasn't ruled yet on Jersey City's lawsuit that aims to halt Gov. Chris Christie's administration from allowing Texas marina company Suntex to open a new marina in the 1,200-acre state park. But the date Sarkisian set yesterday afternoon for an initial hearing in the case has marina opponents optimistic: Jan. 16 at 11 a.m. Christie ends his two terms as governor one hour later.

Liberty Park marina battle has air of class warfare | Di Ionno

Columnist, The Star-Ledger

You'd expect a fishy smell coming out of the waters around Liberty State Park, but the state's apparent rush to approve a massive marina complex on the southern, undeveloped shore is more rank than anything nature can rot up.

Just five weeks ago, the existence of a plan for a 10-acre, half-mile long, 300-slip marina, with a contingency for a restaurant, wasn't even officially acknowledged by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

Updated 4:38 PM; Posted 4:38 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City filed a lawsuit today seeking to halt a controversial plan to add a marina to Liberty State Park, with the city alleging the state improperly entered into an agreement with a Texas company that seeks to run the marina and that the state failed to use a required competitive bid process.

The city, which also alleges the state did not consult with third parties to investigate the effects the new marina would have on the park, is seeking both a preliminary injunction to keep the state from proceeding with its agreement with the marina company, Suntex, and a declaratory judgment that would void the agreement entirely. The city filed the lawsuit today in Hudson County Superior Court.

Man fatally shot on Brunswick Street in Jersey City

A man in his 20s was fatally shot at a Brunswick Street residential complex in the early morning hours of New Year's Day in Jersey City, the county's prosecutor says.

It is not clear yet whether the shooting will be classified a homicide. The prosecutor's office said today its homicide unit is investigating the shooting.

Blood could still be seen on the courtyard pavement this morning. The complex is located just off Montgomery Street across the street from Ferris High School.

A 48-year-old man who was standing near the scene of the shooting said his mother, who lives nearby, heard what she believed was a gunshot -- "a big boom" -- at about 6:30 this morning.

JERSEY CITY -- A Texas marina company and the state Department of Environmental Protection have agreed on the terms of a new lease that would allow the company to expand its current marina in Liberty State Park and build a new one on the park's south end.

The tentative agreement between Suntex Marinas and the DEP puts the controversial marina expansion plan one step closer to reality. The proposal, criticized by park advocates as a commercial takeover of the 1,200-acre park, must be reviewed by the DEP and approved by the State House Commission.

The surprising Jersey roots of 'It's a Wonderful Life'

Updated 8:07 AM; Posted 8:07 AM
By Kelly Heyboer NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Was George Bailey really a Jersey guy?

Though you won't see many clues when "It's a Wonderful Life" gets its traditional airing on NBC this Christmas Eve, the beloved holiday movie has deep New Jersey roots.

The classic film got its unlikely start as a humble Christmas card sent by a Rutgers University graduate. And its fictional Bedford Falls setting was actually inspired by a small town in Hunterdon County with an iron bridge that became a focal point of the movie.

Philip Van Doren Stern, a history writer who grew up in Jersey City, woke up one morning near the end of the Great Depression with the idea for a story about a suicidal man who is stopped from jumping off a bridge by a guardian angel who shows him the true joy of living.

* * *
Stern was born in Wyalusing, Pa., but grew up mostly in New Jersey. He went to grammar school and high school in Jersey City, graduated from Rutgers and started his career working in Newark.
