9/18/2022 10:20 am AlertJC: Rt. 440 reopens

AlertJC: Today at 10:20 am Rt. 440 officially reopened in both directions as emergency construction to fix the century-old sewer lines was completed. A single southbound lane will remain closed for a few hours and the Society Hill southbound entrance will be closed and residents are urged to use Kellogg Street entrance. This urgent construction was necessary to fix a road collapse and loss of critical city services. Thank you again for your cooperation.

Kushners look behind Loew’s theater for next Journal Square skyscrapers

Updated: Aug. 29, 2022, 6:16 p.m.|Published: Aug. 29, 2022, 4:33 p.m.

By Teri West | The Jersey Journal

London? Vegas? Los Angeles? No thanks, the Kushners say. We prefer Journal Square.

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.

Le Dîner en Blanc, a pop-up dinner party defined by its secretive locations and attendees dressed in all white, is plotting its first-ever Jersey City affair.

The event, which began in 1988 in Paris as is now participating in about 90 cities in 30 countries — including Atlantic City, which saw its first Le Dîner en Blanc on the boardwalk last weekend — will be hosted in the Hudson County hotspot by local Jersey City organization Art House Productions in partnership with the City of Jersey City and The Office of Cultural Affairs.

The Jersey City Board of Education finalized its $974 million budget for the 2022-23 school year Thursday night, capping off months of debate about the balance between fiscal responsibility and the district’s responsibilities to its students.

In the immediate aftermath, board members seem more eager to put the experience behind them than to discuss their vote.

After more than 15 years of promises, lawsuits and false starts, work may finally begin soon on the $821 million 1 Journal Square project.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said on social media over the weekend that construction will begin at the site before the start of summer. Of course, Jersey City residents have heard this before.

The future vision of Journal Square is coming into focus and longtime residents may not recognize the Jersey City neighborhood when the developers are finished with it.

A 26-story tower being planned for 80 Journal Square, the site of the C. H. Martin store on Kennedy Boulevard, is the latest high-rise project to be proposed for the area, all coming together to one day create a new city skyline.

12-30-21 (JC) District Update Remote Learning Plan for School Closures

District Update Remote Learning Plan for School Closures

(from JCBoEd website)

Dear Parents and Guardians,


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.

Foreclosure Of Spears’ Home Connected To Man Charged With Running Mega Mortgage Fraud Scam

Jersey City mayoral candidate says he never met Anthony Garvin and can’t recall the name of his friend who brought him real estate deal

New Jersey Globe By David Wildstein, September 28 2021 1:54 am


A property purchased by a Jersey City mayoral candidate is connected to a local man indicted in a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud scheme, but Lewis Spears says he never met the seller and was unaware of the criminal charges filed against Anthony Garvin in 2019.


The U.S. Department of Justice alleges that Garvin plotted a series of short sale flips in Jersey City and other municipalities by using straw borrowers and submitting loan applications using fake pay stubs and tax information to obtain mortgages and multiple Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) loans.

I understand he took money from Fireman who wants the 22 acres in Liberty Park. So now I am stuck, I don't want him or Fulop. Fulop has no control over the spending or bonding. Healy last budget was $485 million. Fulop took over in 2013, the budget is now $620 million and as far as I am concerned, he is responsible for the problem with the school. All of those tax abatements robbed them of their budget and we are paying a high price with higher school taxes.


Jersey City mayor may no longer be unopposed in 2021 mayoral election

Published: May. 19, 2021, 5:20 p.m. jersey journal

“Spears is likely to face scrutiny over the the Kismet of Kings’ recent acceptance of a $150,000 grant from the Fireman Foundation, whose founder, Paul Fireman, has tried to acquire 22 acres of environmentally sensitive land in Liberty State Park for his Liberty National Golf Course.

Fireman has said he is no longer seeking the land, which would have been transformed into three new holes for the course. At the same time, the proposed Liberty State Park Protection Act that would protect the swath of land, has stalled in the Legislature, with some pointing to political donations Fireman has made as the major roadblock to passage.”

Built to withstand a bombing, massive MOTBY buildings to be imploded Sunday

A couple of the final remnants of the historic Military Ocean Terminal at Bayonne will be imploded Sunday morning to make way for a sprawling United Parcel Service facility.

The demolition of two World War II-era structures — each six stories and 1.5 million square feet — completes three years of site work preparation of the 153-acre site on what is now called the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. MOTBY or simple “the M.O.T.,” was in operation from 1942 to 1999, first as a Navy supply depot until 1967 and then as an Army base.

An obscure federal agency could decide the future of a Jersey City park

Updated 2:42 PM; Today 1:53 PM By Peter D’Auria | The Jersey Journal

For years, Jersey City has been embroiled in a battle over the Embankment, a line of six elevated blocks running through the city’s Historic Downtown.

City officials envision the former rail line becoming a linear walking park, the city’s answer to New York’s High Line. But railroad company Conrail, the onetime owner of the land, is trying to unload it to a private developer.

The outcome of that battle could be decided far from the overgrown rail line in the heart of Jersey City. Instead, the future of the city’s dream park could hinge on an upcoming ruling by the Surface Transportation Board — an obscure federal agency in Washington, D.C.
