It was the developer that sued the City and took the project to court.

The developer went to court to enforce his legally granted rights. Clearly the community had issue with the process, but that is not the developer's problem. The fact that he was willing to make concessions at all was commendable; it certainly wasn't required. The argument that this development was out of character for the neighborhood really was a stretch when you consider directly across Varick is a building with a slightly larger number of apartments.


Also the fact the city decided to appeal a case that's sure to lose at the behest of the VVPA. And there were many arguments the VVPA made up to oppose this, but parking was the one that got the most publicity. VVPA also floated a classist and borderline discriminatory argument that the type of development would bring in young 20-somethings and they the neighborhood didn't need "those people". So thanks to the collective wisdom of the VVPA, tax money is being wasted on pointless lawsuits and the area is still a blighted damn parking lot - one that could have been paying taxes and at least.


Like I said before (although you edited my quote)

Wrong on all counts....you are misinformed...

So stop lying. No point in arguing with a Troll.


That guy has done nothing but troll since he signed up. Developers probably handing out $100 bills on the street to people to troll this board and come to meetings speaking out for the slumlords.

Totally agree, F the kids! They can live in the dark. While we're at it, we should let these developers and slumlords take over city parks too.

Good. Maybe the NIMBYs should trot out better arguments than "Waahhhhh, we'll lose our free parking" and "Think of the children!" when they decide to oppose something. Unfortunately, they got their way with the R5 zoning.

But you can get behind slumlords who don't live in the neighborhood and are trying to maximize profit at the expense of the people who do live here. Got it.

Not really the point I was going for, but sure I guess it does. The developer/lawyer's main points were that the building is practically in the Newark Ave. zone and should be zoned accordingly, the adjacent building heights are in line with what they're trying to build, adding a garage for parking would kill 2 permanent street parking spots and only net gain a couple spots.

The neighbors' main arguments were that they're not enough parking and that the building would cast too many shadows. It wasn't that they had bad arguments, but they were so rude and disrespectful that the VNA leaders eventually had to ask them to leave.

So yeah - are the fears valid? I guess, but they're just not people I could get behind.

375 5th Street is the one seeking a variance not the old Texaco Gas Station which is on Newark Ave owned by BGT Enterprises. 375 5th Street is owned by the Gupta's who also own a lot of other sites in other parts of the City.
Oak Condominiums, yellow building with weird balconies was supporting the Gas Station development since I believe the developer left a sizable cut out for those balconies facing Newark Ave. The Village Neighborhood Association was also supporting the Gas Station BGT project. I am not sure if the Gupta's are accommodating those balconies. Is the Village supporting Gupta's project? Since this thread was started by the Oak Condominiums (yellow building with weird balconies), can you please share if the Gupta's are building next to 369 5th balconies or leaving any cut out for those balconies?


The VNA is not supporting this project. The Gupta's bypassed the board and tried to get this through the zoning board without working with them or any neighbors. They are proposing tearing down the existing building and requesting extending the footprint back toward their property line closer to Newark Ave. They are proposing a 3 foot setback from the existing balconies in the yellow building, and I believe that their proposal would have windows which could enable folks to view inside those units with the balconies (not positive).

The biggest problem I have is that the Gupta's have had this place since the mid-80's and have let the building deteriorate significantly. It's nothing but a cash cow for the owners who dont live in JC. Only recently have they cleaned up the junkyard that was behind their building. Not only have they done nothing positive for the neighborhood, but their existing proposal would be nothing but another cash grab with no benefit to the neighborhood. Sorry, but variances should NOT be granted if the sole purpose is to line the developers pockets.

Folks around the Enos Jones area have to walk 20-30 mins to get to a station, and there are ~200 new units going up there.

Candice said she would discuss it with the PA, and the PA did get back to me saying they would take a look at this as a long-term project.


You do realize the station would be on Columbus right? Columbus & Bruswick is only 2500' from Grove. And that's still 2200 ft from Pavonia & Brunswick. From P & B to Grove via Newark is 4000 ft, and if that takes you 20 minutes you've got to stop dragging your feet. Googlemaps clocks it at 16 min, seems about right. The same radius from the station in Hoboken would only be at 6th & Willow, not considered far there at all. Oh, and the stations only 1.5 miles apart, not 2.

I'd say Candace & the PA is humoring you. That's what they do.


You're correct, I always thought it ran under Newark Ave. Wouldn't make much sense then, too bad.

So I'm supposed to pay my $8000 property taxes, then send my 3 year old to a private PreK for $10,000 near where I live? Thats absurd. Believe it or not, there are many more middle class families downtown than wealthy ones. These folks including myself should have an option near where we reside, not be forced to put a 3 year old on a bus. If our taxes were minimal I'd have no problem going private, but public education options should be a no brainer given the outrageous taxes we're forced to pay here.

I want them to start slashing the taxes but to give a perspective of what he is proposing....2.1% of $12,000 is only $252. We need 10-20% cut. What's even more funny about this is that the beginning of the year I got a notice that my taxes went $210 a month. It's such a joke.
I pay all this and send my kids to private school on top of this.
Then again I don't ever plan on leaving.


I agree completely. I'm paying a fortune in taxes downtown and Fulop is basically telling me to pay 10k per year for my kids preschool or have him bussed to the westside, all because he refuses to give the 9th st Annex to the school board. What am I paying for again?

Re: Part-time programs for 2-3 year olds Downtown?

We have been sending our 2.5 year old to Little Brick since mid-July and we can't say enough good things about it. If you are a member of JC Moms, I believe that the first "semester" is $40 per 3 hour session (semesters are 4 weeks, they ask for a minimum of two days a week commitment), then it goes up to $45 per session. The owners, Rene and Joe, experienced parents to three children, are very kind and patient with the kids, and there will never be more than 5 kids in any session. We send our son in the mornings but they have sessions that run concurrently all day. I believe that they are filling spaces very quickly now, since Jersey Beans, another toddler drop off program, just closed this past month.

Buglaries and Thefts notice from East District Police

Please read and distribute the below and attached to all community members, neighbors, family and friends.

The East District monitors all crimes closely and an increase in manpower is assigned to areas where crime(s) are at an increase. Additionally, we have assigned plain clothes units and detectives to monitor the areas and incidents.

It is imperative that if anyone witnesses anything suspicious to call it in immediately. Unfortunately, we do not have witnesses coming forward at this time. If there are witnesses, please advise them to respond to the East Districts to speak with a Detective(s).

Please secure all homes, apartments, and units prior to exiting. Make sure windows and doors are secured. Activate all alarm systems. Make sure the front door is always locked. Always have someone home when work is being conducted inside the home. Make sure you have a sturdy, strong, and solid door and make sure you have a dead bolt that is properly installed into the frame.

JC doesn't need a music scene when one of the greatest music scenes in the world is 5 minutes away. As are the museums. The fact that they're not located here doesn't really mean anything. Easy access to NYC is one of the benefits of JC.

Super rich? Hyperbole is another big problem in these debates. I'd say 99% of the non-union workers in the middle class don't get a pension and have to pay SIGNIFICANTLY more for healthcare. I work in the healthcare industry and have to pay 8.5% of my paycheck for healthcare. I also have to contribute to a 401k because I have no pension. The problem I have is the labeling of "concessions" by unions that aren't really concessions. I used to have a pension years ago, but due to tough times it has been eliminated. I also used to get free heathcare being in the industry. Don't tell me concessions have been made. When there are no more pensions for unions and they're taking almost 10% of your paycheck for healthcare, come talk to me about concessions.

Got a peek inside today, doesn't look promising. The room you walk into is about the size of the average Manhattan apartment master bedroom. Unless there is a huge back room which will be the shopping area, this doesn't appear to be a walk-in food store.
