For sale, 42-story high-rise development project in Journal Square, almost shovel ready

Updated: Mar. 14, 2024, 6:59 p.m.|Published: Mar. 14, 2024, 5:20 p.m.
By Mark Koosau | The Jersey Journal

Want the chance to own the site of a proposed 42-story high rise in Jersey City with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline? It could all be yours in a bidding contest after its previous owner filed for bankruptcy on the project.

It’s the latest twist in the saga of the proposed project at 500 Summit Ave. in the Journal Square neighborhood, where after 14 years and two settlements later, a shovel has yet to be put on the ground.

Robert Byrne, longtime Jersey City city clerk, dies at age of 63

Updated: May. 20, 2023, 7:36 p.m.|Published: May. 19, 2023, 5:21 p.m.

Robert Byrne, who presided over Jersey City City Hall meetings as city clerk for parts of five different decades, died Friday at the age of 63.

“Anyone who dealt with Jersey City over the last 30 years would have encountered Robert Byrne, and every single one of them would have left with a positive and memorable experience,” Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop said. “For me, I have countless examples as he embraced me when I was an outside councilman first elected and taught me about government. He swore me in at midnight when I was first elected mayor of Jersey City.

Urban farm will nurture nature, kids and a community | Faith Matters

Published: Apr. 09, 2023, 8:00 a.m.
By Rev. Alexander Santora/For the Jersey Journal

Drive through the townships of Wall and Howell in Monmouth County and you see why New Jersey is dubbed the Garden State. You might not consider Jersey City, but it does have some small urban farms. And driving down Rose Avenue in Greenville, you’ll see the newest one.

The quarter-acre plot of land was a lot of overgrown weeds two years ago. But Monica Shaw saw an opportunity to teach city kids and residents that growing vegetables can be done right in their backyards. Or on a common farm.

JC Mayor Unveils Comprehensive #BlazeUpJC Campaign, Mailing samples to all 120,000 Households Citywide

The success of his #JCMakeItYours and #MaskUpJC campaigns inspires the creation of a new #BlazeUpJC campaign.

JERSEY CITY - Mayor Fulop joins the Health and Human Services Department and Office of Innovation to unveil a multifaceted public campaign called #BlazeUpJC, to expand upon the city’s ongoing efforts of providing critical tools and resources to help Jersey City residents get acquainted with the numerous cannabis shops and their products opening shortly around the city. The #BlazeUpJC initiative centers on a citywide cannabis sampler distribution, wherein two throwback city-branded varieties of cannabis Hague’s Ghost and Skelzies, a few accessories, and recipe booklet are being sent via mail carrier to all 120,000 households throughout Jersey City.
.
Under the #BlazeUpJC campaign, the city is distributing 2,000 stickers to businesses that read, "BLAZE UP MUNCHIE UP". Business owners can put the stickers on their storefront windows to encourage customers to come in and tame their cravings. The mayor states the opening of dispensaries will not only benefit the owners of the dispensaries (and their landlords wink wink) but will also have a large positive economic impact on every food establishment in the city. Which are still suffering from the turndown in sales during the pandemic. It may also spur growth of new restaurants.
.
As mentioned on the Jersey Digs website a new yet to be named chain of grilled cheese sandwich shops will be opening around the city soon. The owners are long time JC residents and Deadheads James and Amanda Brookings. “We got our start selling grilled cheese sandwiches outside of the Grateful Dead concerts in the old JC Roosevelt Stadium and Journal Square Stanley Theater back in the 70’s. We had a successful run over the years following the band around the country setting up our stands outside of their venues. “says James. Brookings further states “Amanda’s mental health started to decline so our crazy tie-dyed life on the road had to stop. Amanda claims it is just old age setting in, but I think her job as a fresh faced 14-year-old in Journal Square’s Butterfly Head Shop (near the old Crazy Eddie like Sound Machine electronics store) contributed to her health decline. Let’s put it this way they were selling way more than just incense sticks out of the backroom and employees of course had to sample the goods for quality control. Enough said.”
.
“Because of our inability to get around and not wanting to be THAT couple in electric old people’s scooters selling grilled cheese sandwiches at concerts in comes the idea of opening brick and mortar shops in the town where it all started for us Jersey City. Props to the New Jersey and JC suits for passing the pot dispensary laws. Right On! “
.
Along with the sampler the #BlazeUpJC packages contain a letter from the Mayor and a "Blaze Up JC" poster from the winner of the JC Public Schools pot diversity poster contest. (hmm would love to meet the winners parents) In the Mayor's open letter, residents are also encouraged to sign up for the city's “Potline” alert system to receive important updates of where the freshest batches of weed were just delivered. Sort of like a cell phone version of Krispy Kreme's “HOT NOW” neon window signs.
.
Since January, the city has distributed over 500 samplers to senior citizen buildings. The mayor states “We wanted to get the kits out to our elders first. They suffered the most because of the archaic marijuana laws.” Interviewed for this piece Jessica Richard 75 years young dressed in her vintage faded “FREE LOVE” tee shirt and some ill-fitting hot pants. Let me say it here I don’t think Jessica was a fan of Nair’s 'Who Wears Short Shorts' advertisement or product. Good for her though as she lives by that old expression “baby let it all hang out” but this reporter is NOT wishing for a Sharon Stone moment from Jessica. She said back in the day they would have to hide in the hidden crevasses of JC always on the lookout for “The Man” just to get a few sweet tokes in.
.
She brags how her boyfriend Bobby a Marist High School student used to sneak out of the school building and toke under the Turnpike rt 78 extension bridge along with his Country Village boyz and occasionally Brother Andre (oops). Never busted. All of their initials and the obligatory weed symbol are still there on the steel beams just as she said.
.
Although she appreciates the mayors’ efforts she says “look at me I am in a suit of wrinkles I could be a stunt double for the old bathtub woman in room 237. (hmm more to come on that) What good would it be getting high now who is going to want to party with me? Everyone in this facility is either half dead or dying. No amount of little blue pills will make any of these old stiffs stiff. What a bummer” as she gives this reporter THAT look..yikes. **
.
"Our data shows that the major contributor to the disdain for JC dispensaries is misinformation. We hope to change that with our BlazeUpJC campaign. As the old saying goes Knowledge is Power and we hope to educate every JC resident about the coming cannabis retail stores. We don’t want any “Reefer Madness” NIMBY ers stopping our progress. You can’t blame any JC old-timers for the disdain because they were smoking pot way before any of us were born. They welcome weed!” said Stacey Flanagen, CCB Commissioner and Director of Health and Human Services.
.
The "Blaze Up JC" branding will be deployed throughout Jersey City's communication channels, including digital kiosks, billboards, and social media. The city's website also serves a unique role for non-English speaking residents, who can find the same information in their native language on the website. Just by looking up their country’s names for cannabis…Kenevir, Kạỵchā, Konopí, Maconha, Pango, Siddhi, etc. https://www.jerseycitynj.gov/
.
** full reporter disclosure – To avoid any unwarranted lawsuits or claims of sexual harassment I would like to give the full details of my encounter with Jessica Richard at the JC Hamilton Park Nursing Home. Upon entering her single occupancy room decorated in a 1970’s motif with black light posters, lava lamps, and tie-dyed scarfs covering the two dimly lit lamp shades I detected a faint unfamiliar odor of pot. As time went on my head was becoming cloudy as was my judgement. At one point during the long interview, I swear a beautiful 20 something year-old woman was standing buck naked right in front of me offering me a doobie and something extra. I resisted the temptation but did for one second place my hand on her exposed buttocks. Some may consider it copping a feel. I felt like The Shining’s Jack Torrance in the Overlook Hotel’s room 237 bathroom scene. Unlike Torrance’s encounter I am happy mine didn’t go any further than a quick touch. Jessica must have a stash of some way strong ganja from the 70’s to cause those kinds of hallucinations on her unintended love targets. Some JC cannabis dispensaries might just want to look her up and get some old seeds. It would be a killer marketing idea and killer strain. You could name it Jurassic Park. But please proceed with caution when in her presence!

NJ Teacher Shot Dead; Husband Arrested in PA After Their Daughter Calls 911

The Hudson County prosecutor's office is investigating -- and the woman's 14-year-old daughter was supposedly the one to call 911

By Brian Thompson • Published 1 hour ago • Updated 32 mins ag

A third-grade teacher in New Jersey was shot to death at her Jersey City home early Tuesday, allegedly a victim of domestic violence at the hands of her husband, who was arrested out of state hours later, a high-level police source and other law enforcement sources confirmed.

Sources identified the victim as Temara King, who celebrated her 35th birthday just two weeks ago and taught at Public School Number 5 on Merseles Street. She was killed at her apartment on Bergen Avenue shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sources said her 14-year-old daughter was the one who called 911 and told the dispatcher her dad shot her.

The father, identified by sources as 39-year-old Lucus Cooper, was apprehended by Pennsylvania State Police later Tuesday, the high-ranking police sources said. Charges against him weren't immediately clear, nor did Hudson County prosecutors, who were leading the investigation, immediately confirm the details of the case publicly.

Family members described King as a loving mother. She also was a loving teacher, Jersey City Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Norma Fernandez indicated.

"Our hearts are broken at the sudden violent loss of Temara King," Fernandez said in a statement. "She was an outstanding educator and dedicated faculty member. She will be missed and our prayers go to her family as they cope with the tragedy."

Investigators were seen loading up evidence throughout the morning.

King earned a master's degree with a specialty in special education and recently was promoted.

..for Mayor again. (hmm is there a Mayor WheelMan in our future?)



Dear Jersey City resident,

I hope this email finds you well and your 2023 is off to a great start.

I wanted to share with you a decision I made over the new year. I’ve decided with certainty that this will be my last term as mayor and despite no term limits in Jersey City, I know that I won’t be standing for re-election as Jersey City's mayor in 2025. You can learn more here.

I am forever grateful that you elected me for three terms as your mayor - something that hasn’t been done in more than 50 years, and you did it with record pluralities. In turn, I put everything I could into serving as mayor knowing that I strived every single day to make you proud and move the city forward.

We have done so much together to move Jersey City forward. Our city has become a national model on so many fronts and truly one of the best renaissance stories in the country. I know that three terms is a substantial amount of time to leave a city better than the way it was when we started and I believe we did that.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve this amazing city

I love Jersey City as it is a very special place with the best communities working together towards a better future

Thank you Jersey City.

Sincerely,

Steven M. Fulop

The New Jersey real-estate mogul family is continuing to lay out transformative plans to reshape the Jersey City neighborhood with skyscrapers.

This time, and for the first time ever, the skyscraping is headed to the western side of Kennedy Boulevard, behind the historic Loew’s Jersey Theatre. There, the KRE Group, the masterminds behind Journal Squared — the two towers (and a third under construction) that have made the neighborhood identifiable from miles away — plan to build two new towers, one 55 stories tall and the other at 49.

We regularly monitor the COVID-19 cases in the area, and we have a surge in the number of individuals testing positive due to the highly contagious Omicron variant.

As a precautionary measure, we return to virtual instruction for a week effective Monday, January 3, 2022. We anticipate returning to in-person learning on Monday, January 10, 2022. We will continue to update you as circumstances change. The District's decision to temporarily switch to virtual learning is difficult. Still, the administration and the Board are mindful of the health and well-being of our students, staff, and community.


As part of our plan to maintain the continuity of teaching and learning, we will be implementing our District's Virtual Instruction Plan. Our parents' guide on the website will provide specific information about daily instruction, student attendance, and support for parents and students. The parents' guide translates into many languages. Monday students will work independently on the assignments posted by their teachers. All staff members will report to their job on Monday and Tuesday, and their immediate supervisors will provide more details.


We will provide lunch and breakfast starting Tuesday at 20 different schools throughout the City between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. The locations are listed in the parents' guide.


Additional information will be forthcoming about testing to stay and vaccination opportunities. We will reevaluate the COVID-19 positivity rates within our school community and determine the following steps to return to in-person instruction.
