Jersey City, Amazon team up to stop holiday package thefts

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey --

The explosion in online shopping has led to porch pirates and stoop surfers swiping holiday packages from unsuspecting residents. The cops in one New Jersey city are trying to catch the thieves with some trickery of their own.

Police in Jersey City, across the Hudson River from New York, are teaming up with Amazon to install doorbell cameras and plant dummy boxes with GPS tracking devices at homes around the city.

They didn't have to wait long Tuesday for someone to take the bait.

"We had a box out on the street for three minutes before it was taken," said police Capt. James Crecco, who is overseeing the mission. "We thought it was a mistake at first."

The suspect was caught, Crecco added.

I wonder why the prices are soo high this year. They are usually about 24.99 & even 29.99


A few news stations had pieces on how artificial trees are taking over real trees for Christmas. Xmas tree farmers are feeling the pain. Maybe they are charging the dealers more to make up for some of their loss.

LOS ANGELES — Philip Bosco, the Tony Award-winning actor and Jersey City native known for his roles in films “Working Girl” and “The Savages,” has died. He was 88.

The United States Postal Service is suspending mail delivery and the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will close trading Wednesday as George H.W. Bush embarks on his final tour of Washington, the capital city that is remembering the 41st president’s lifetime of public service that began in the Navy during World War II, included one term as president and was characterized throughout by what admirers say was his innate decency, generosity and kindness.

The Jersey Journal ran the tax lien for 2018. It was 33 pages. It is the first advertisement. However, over 6,700 people more than one in ten cannot afford their taxes or water. When the city talks about affordable housing, they ignore that group and worry about future residents who will come here from the feds list for low income housing.



Talk about fake news. Do you really think the 6,700 properties listed on the tax lien list will be included in the annual tax sale? I have been on that list a few years and I know many others who were also. In my case I seem to always forget to pay my last quarter tax bills and one year I think I somehow owed 50 dollars on a water bill.

As soon as I get tax sale letter from the city after November 11th I rush to the bank and get a certified check and head down to room 101 in City Hall to pay up. Along with many others on the long line going out the door. Unfortunately, if you don’t pay by the time “the list” is published in the JJ you are on it for the next few printings. No matter how much begging you do to the lovely tax women. (lol)

Oh the shame when your neighbors come up to you and ask if you are having hard times. (yes there are actually people who read those 6,700 tiny printed names in the JJ) Although I must admit I do it also when those unclaimed money lists are published…you never know. Also look at the amounts in the list the majority are around 2000 bucks and under probably the last quarter amount and many of the big amounts are LLC’s, realtors, and condo associations. I guess we will be seeing an unvetted “Letters to the Editor” in the JJ in the next couple of days..right?

(from the JC tax website)

TAX SALE

All municipalities in the State of New Jersey are required to hold a tax sale for unpaid municipal charges that remain unpaid at the end of the yearly billing and payment cycle, November 11th. Any municipal charge that remains unpaid and is delinquent as of November 11 in Jersey City will be subject to Tax Sale before the close of the calendar year. The 2017 Tax Sale is scheduled for December 13, 2018. Click HERE for the schedule. Your property is not sold at tax sale; your outstanding municipal debt is paid by a Lienholder in exchange for an amount interest, penalties and statutory fees that they will earn on the amount they paid to the municipality, not to exceed 18%. The Lienholder is able to pay any charges that become delinquent on the account once they hold the lien and add those charges to the lien balance. If the lien is not redeemed within two years from the date of the Tax Sale the Lienholder has the right to begin a foreclosure action. Please contact our office sooner, rather than later if you are having difficulty paying your property taxes, water or sewer bills.

Legal settlement: millions for Jersey City, new home for PATH substation

The Jersey Journal

Jersey City would collect millions in tax payments from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey under a proposed settlement of the city's four-year-old lawsuit against the bi-state agency.

The Port Authority would also pay the city $17.8 million for a Downtown Jersey City property that is expected to be the new home of a PATH substation, if the settlement wins council approval next month.

How George R.R. Martin's family history in Bayonne inspired this 'Game of Thrones' character

Updated Nov 21, 1:46 PM; Posted Nov 21, 12:46 PM

By Corey W. McDonald cmcdonald@jjournal.com The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY – George R. R. Martin comes from a great dynasty that once "held lands" in the southern peninsula of Hudson County.

And just like the heroine of his novels, Daenerys Targaryen, it was all swept away before his time.

During a appearance at the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater on Monday night to promote his new book "Fire and Blood," the Bayonne native offered a fascinating glimpse into how his own family history may have influenced the creation of the popular "Game of Thrones" character – the last remaining member of a once-powerful family in the fictional world of Westeros.

This is from northjersey.com you can also just google Macys Balloon Fest 2018 for others.

https://www.northjersey.com/media/cine ... /macys-balloon-fest-2018/

It was supposed to be from 9 am to 1 pm. It started early 8:30 am and ended early because of the wind. They were going to do 6 but only did 3 balloons. Don’t know if you knew but it was tied into a Macy Rewards event. If you registered for the Nov 3rd event I think back in October you got a free shirt. I didn't register they let people who didn't stand outside barriers.

The P Lot was odd no parking you had to park along the road or in the Race Track lot and walk. A lot of people came. It used to be in the big parking lots like by the Flea Market. I have been going to those balloon fests since they were held in Hoboken they got so big it was moved to Giants Stadium. Then on and off to NY. Also it was cool pre 9/11 to go to the warehouse the night before the parade and see the floats lined up in the streets. You could actually sit on them and take pictures. After 9/11 got strict of course had bomb sniffing dogs and you couldn't sit on the floats.
