Police horse unit may return in Jersey City

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City is bringing back police horses for the first time in 46 years, unless the City Council says nay.

The nine-member body will hear a measure next week that would authorize the city to use 605 Monmouth St., located in an industrial area of the city near the approaches to the Holland Tunnel, as the site of stables for police horses.

Mana Contemporary's open house will be a modern art wonderland -- with biergarten

Updated 10:15 AM; Posted 10:15 AM
By David Menzies The Jersey Journal

The very name of Mana Contemporary evokes modern art – a varied world of strangeness, where some pieces have the meaning of a Rorschach test for some and a blotch of ink for others. But all art should make you think or feel something, and the Jersey City-based organization will open its large campus of galleries, studio space and more at 888 Newark Ave. Sunday to give you a chance to do just that.

From 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., arts-related events – including, arguably to some, the DJed biergarten provided by Barcade in the parking lot – will be held throughout Mana Contemporary's spaces as part of their fall open house.

With Halloween just around the corner, there's no place that will be more terrifying than Jersey City's Harsimus Cemetery, with a live screening of the cult phenomenon that is "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." The movie will be screened on Friday night, Oct 12, at 7:30 p.m.

Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters, from the nefarious Dr. Frank N. Furter to the titular Rocky.

A Jersey City family is seeking the public's help in finding their lost pet dog, Bumblebee, who was last seen in late September.

Johanna Wood said her family's 7-year-old female Pekingese went missing on the morning of Sept. 23 when she ran away from their dogsitter in Jersey City's West Side neighborhood. She was last seen at the eastern end of the city, near Liberty National Golf Club, Wood said.

Why the rain and flooding were so bad in Hudson County on Tuesday
Updated 4:55 PM; Posted 4:28 PM

By Patrick Villanova The Jersey Journal

It was a wet and wild Tuesday in Hudson County.

The state's most densely-populated county was soaked with heavy rains that left cars trapped on flooded roadways, basements under water, and commuters with a hellish ride home.

So how much rain fell on Tuesday? That depends on which part of the county you're looking at.

'Joker,' Joaquin Phoenix film about Batman nemesis, to film in N.J. locations

Updated 4:52 PM; Posted 4:09 PM

The Jersey Journal

"Joker," the Todd Phillips film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the homicidal Batman villain with an affinity for clown makeup, will film in Jersey City and Newark on six dates starting next weekend.

The upcoming film shoot, the largest production to film in Jersey City in recent memory, has that city's emergency management officials coordinating with City Hall's communications staff and the police department to make sure all runs smoothly.

In Jersey City the production will shut down Newark Avenue in front of the historic Brennan courthouse and the county administration building for an entire Sunday later this month and a portion of Kennedy Boulevard near the Journal Square PATH hub for a Friday afternoon in November, according to plans obtained by The Jersey Journal.

The plans call for NJ Transit to reroute buses during filming and for the city to prevent pedestrians and motorists from disrupting filming.

A flyer seeking extras says filming will take place in Newark between Oct. 13 and Oct. 16.

“He is putting more people in danger of floods and we, the public, will be responsible since this will be a public partnership”

LOL…the the flooding on the portion of rt 440/Kellogg in front of the La Mexicana (former Colonette) restaurant is never high enough to cover a car maybe it would go to the door jam if that. Yes that sewer has been getting over whelmed for years during heavy rain storms. Yes it may block one lane of rt 440/Kellogg while it slowly drains and some drivers do foolishly plow through it and stall but I have never seen a car under water from it. Nice stretch in trying to knock anything Mayor Fulop does. (as usual)

Eastbound traffic on the Newark Bay extension of the New Jersey Turnpike could get quite backed up this weekend as construction takes place on the bridge deck.

From Interchange 14 to 14B, traffic will be reduced to one lane from 9 tonight until 5 a.m. Monday for the "priority repairs,'' the Turnpike Authority announced.

A Jersey City landmark is up for grabs if you're in the restaurant business — or not.

The historic Summit House, at 510 Summit Ave. in Journal Square, is on the market for sale or lease, Chuck Lanyard of The Goldstein Group, who listed the property, confirmed.

The three-story building, on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places, was constructed in 1690 by the Newkirk family and is considered the oldest building in the city. It is also among the 20 oldest structures in the state.

The listing for the property, owned by St. Anthony High School and Seton Hall University legend Terry Dehere, does not include the asking or lease price.

The proposed project will include 110 hotel rooms, more than 200 residential units, 6,200 square feet of ground floor retail, a day care center, fitness center and 120 reserved and unreserved parking spaces.

The five-parcel lot, which sits on Newark Avenue and Cottage Avenue in Journal Square and had been previously transferred to the JCRA, will be purchased by Canbis LLC, for $8.7 million.

JERSEY CITY — Council President Rolando Lavarro wants the city to cut down to twice-a-week street cleaning citywide, an idea that is part of a package of proposals Lavarro calls "street sweep reform."

The package includes simple items like a ticket amnesty program — one that would give residents a complete break for tickets issued before Jan. 1, 2017 — and an idea that may be a tough lift, a plan to keep anyone from getting their driver's license suspended because of unpaid street sweeper tickets.

The municipal tax rate of $1.48 (per $100 of assessed value) was certified by the Hudson County Tax Board on July 27 and property owners are expected to receive their bills in the next three weeks.

Because of the delay, residents will have a 25-day grace period from the date they receive their bills, city officials said.
