Donation drives, dinner for 44 victims of Jersey City 4-alarm blaze

Today 10:16 AM (10/18/2019)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

The community is stepping up for more than three dozen people who were burned out of their homes in a four-alarm fire Last Friday.

Community Treasures, a non-profit founded by Jersey City resident Tina Nalls, will offer free clothing to the 44 victims of the Wade Street blaze, and anyone else who is in need, from noon to 6 p.m. at 450 Martin Luther King Dr., Nalls said.

The organization provides free clothing at that location every Saturday.

Tax-abated apartment building complex was being operated as hotel, Jersey City officials say

Updated Oct 17, 2019; Posted Oct 17, 2019
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

Jersey City officials say an 83-unit rental building complex has been operating as a hotel, violating the tax abatement agreement the developer signed six years ago.

On Thursday, the city’s Division of Taxation put Chosen Condominiums Urban Renewal, developer of the “Caprice” and “Monte Carlo” buildings in Journal Square on notice, saying they must stop illegally renting apartments via the Airbnb platform.

Airbnb discussion to air on Jersey City comcast channel

The Airbnb vote Live TV special with Airbnb spokesperson Liz DeBold Fusco, hosted by the “Jersey City Show’s” Pat O’Melia, will air on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at noon live on Jersey City Comcast cable Ch. 190, Livestream.com, YouTube, and Facebook. The special will discuss the pro’s and cons of the Nov. 5 Airbnb referendum vote. Questions from Jersey City residents will be answered live during the show via Facebook.

Airbnb is a marketplace that offers short-term lodging for tourists as an alternative to often expensive rentals at hotels. On Nov. 5, voters will decide the future of the business in Jersey City. This past June, an ordinance was adopted that prohibits short-term rentals for more than 60 days in properties where the owner does not live onsite and entirely in buildings with more than four units. Voters can either support or reject the new restrictions.

Murphy jumps into Jersey City’s Airbnb fight. Whose side is he on?

Updated 1:44 PM; Today 1:19 PM (10/15/2019)
By Patrick Villanova | The Jersey Journal

The campaign hoping to affirm new regulations on Jersey City’s short-term rental industry scored a key endorsement Tuesday when Gov. Phil Murphy joined the fray.

“I support Jersey City’s Local Ordinance 19-077. Short-term rentals should be regulated,” the New Jersey governor tweeted Tuesday morning, urging Jersey City voters to vote yes on Municipal Question 1 on Nov. 5.

The ordinance, which the City Council passed in June, established new regulations on home-sharing services like Airbnb and VRBO. However, after a successful petition drive backed by Airbnb, the future of the ordinance will be decided by voters in the Nov. 5 referendum.

Readers weigh in on Jersey City referendum on short-term rentals | Opinion

Today 4:00 PM (10/11/2019)

By Letters To The Editor | The Jersey Journal

Editor’s note: When Jersey City voters go to the polls Nov. 5, they’ll be asked a referendum question on whether the city should put into effect (VOTE YES) or overturn (VOTE NO) a new city law that puts restrictions on short-term rentals of properties such as Airbnb. The law, approved in June, allows homeowners who are on-site to share their home 365 days a year and calls for an annual 60-day cap for short-term rentals if the property owner is not on-site. It prohibits short-term rentals in buildings with more than four units and phases out existing short-term rental contracts in those buildings by Jan. 1, 2021. It also prohibits renters from serving as short-term rental hosts.

See the stunning new N.J. art exhibit that thousands stopped to visit

By Aristide Economopoulos | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Thousands of visitors traveled to Jersey City (JOURNAL SQUARE) this past Sunday to attend The Mana Contemporary Fall 2019 Open House.

Over 100 studios were open, with the artists meeting members of the public and talking about their work. According to Mana Contemporary's Artistic Director and co-founder Eugene Lemay, having the open house twice a year allows the artists the time to develop new work that they can share with the public. A free event, it is one of two open houses Mana puts on each year, with one also taking place in the spring.

The sign sits in front of 350 Montgomery St., a silent reminder of an institution that thrived for more than 100 years, then ran into financial troubles and died a slow death.

“Jersey City Museum” says the sign in white letters, just below an official Jersey City logo. The sign belongs to the city. The museum, which closed in 2010 and reopened briefly in 2012, did not.
