Post Office-Parking
#1

Can we start to discuss the problem regarding the way the postal workers personal vehicles and delivery trucks illegally park (and drive) in the blocks surrounding the post office at Montgomery and Warren Street?
Was almost run over by employee (driving in reverse on the sidewalk) this morning who got out to curse at me to get out of her way. While I was walking on the SIDEWALK...

Related(or not?) issue...(let me know if this has been addressed elsewhere on JClist?)

Has anyone wondered why Grundy Park (the boardwalk) next to Exchange Place has absolutely no lights functioning at night? Plenty of light poles but none working?

Sorry if it has been mentioned before but why are post office employees parking on the sidewalk on the Montgomery side of the post office? Yesterday there were five cars.


Additionally....
The trucks are also USUALLY parked right to the corners blocking the crosswalks (Great for the students at St. Peter's Prep during the schoolyear trying to cross in crosswalks when you cannot see around these behemoth trucks)
I recently spoke with 2 uniformed police officers who were within 20 feet of at least 2 trucks blocking pedestrian crosswalks. They smiled, laughed and said "If we ticket them, who ends up paying for the tickets? Taxpayers." I said fine, but is there anything that can be done, anyone to speak with, any suggestions at all...they shrugged their shoulders smirking. So, what I took from that brief convo was that the police don't care about public safety even when there is an infraction glaring at them right in the face. They were in front of the Downtown Diner so I am guessing they were more concerned with their stomach's than their jobs.
I have literally dozens of photos of these trucks completely blocking crosswalks surrounding the Post Office...can I send these to any official? Mayor? Councilperson? Or do we need to wait until someone gets hit?

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

So I have lived here six years and take the PATH train into Manhattan every day. I have been wanting to ask anyone who may know...... I often notice that when the train leaves Christopher, the conductor/or person who opens the doors, leaves the door control area, walks thru a usually crowded train and enters the engineer/driver's room. Often, If I am at the front, I can hear them talking about their weekends, laughing..etc. Then just before the train arrives at Newport, this person is rushing to get to the controls to open the doors. Now here is my question, does this make anyone riding the train uncomfortable? Is this ok under PATH protocol? Am I being paranoid? Anything could happen and the person most likely to address whatever happens is behind a locked door. Please chime in. I was thinking I could record it, but wasn't sure I should. Thank you. Be nice...

If you needed a place to really discuss how about the importance of the rundown shoprite/BJ's/Pepboys across the street? Do we need this hideous grocery store and pothole filled parking lot or can we replace with somethin?


What is your basis for this statement? All three of these establishments are constantly busy with shoppers. Agreed that they need to spruce up, but they provide vital services to many people.

I think it's about art being produced at a third grade quality.

The so-called artists in this city churn out the most crap I have ever seen.


Sooo... gibbons70, You must be one of the foremost art critics in the world to make a statement like this. What exactly are your credentials again?

Re: towing at shoprite

Question for Gary Matarazzo......
Being a responsible business owner trying to make a living, do you feel a responsibility to train your drivers in regard to the driving their trucks safely? I guess you cannot control what your drivers do when they are out on the roads but you should probably know...
I live between Columbus and 2nd and you've got a driver who needs to SLOW DOWN when he is chasing down an illegal parker. There are a lot of people living in those few blocks and I am sure they can all agree that this driver speeds recklessly and speeds in the lot behind BJ's (which is a one way... the opposite way your driver goes) He does not stop...or even slow down when approaching intersections. Are you familiar with NJC Idling laws? There is on truck idling across from where I live constantly.

About a month ago one of your drivers was attempting to tow a vehicle from BJ/BBB/SR lot when the owner realized she was about to be towed and ran back to her car. The driver lowered his pitchfork and backed up toward the car as the woman stood there screaming her head off in fear he'd run her over...he was relentless until enough passersby started to come to her aid, when he sped off (in a parking lot.. people, pets, kids, strollers.. get the picture?)

We understand you need to run a business but in order to garner any respect your people need to respect the community. Your company gets a bad rap because they disregard the laws and act like hungry animals in pursuit of their prey. Just my observation..

Re: Drivers Must Come to Full Stop at NJ Crosswalks

Driving a car is a priviledge and can have serious/deadly consequences if not respected regarding laws AND common sense. When you are behind the wheel of something carrying that much weight and force you are responsible to control that with all your attention. We live in a populated world where drivers have to share space alongside others. I don't understand the reasoning by those drivers that think when they are in a highly populated area (for example downtown JC) that pedestrians should get out of their way so they can get to wherever they are faster. (.. I have been nearly run over many times (crossing WITH the right of way signal) by those turning from Columbus on to Marin heading north when they get stopped by the light 2 blocks up...as I walk by them from the sidewalk they always pretend they don't see me passing them on foot...on the sidewalk).
Pedestrians also need to understand that there are drivers who have no regard for the laws, are distracted on cell phones or are in a hurry. There are those pedestrians who also think crosswallks are for decoration and cross where ever they feel. That is the chance they take and need to accept the consequences if there is an accident.

How do we encourage BOTH drivers AND pedestrians to respect the rights and priviledges of the other? We have laws that are intended to protect us all from harm that should be enforced by those the taxpayer funds. The extent of the punishment by law should be in relation to the extent that each has the responsibility for the activity they are involved in. It is obvious that a moving vehicle can cause a great deal more damage hitting something than a person on foot can cause.

I love driving and I love taking a walk through town. There should not be a "drivers" vs "pedestrians" attitude. Instead of complaing about the other, how do we coexist in a crowded city where everybody wants to arrive safely?

Got ours (Powerhouse Arts District) filled it out, mailed it back next day, got SEVERAL reminders, SEVERAL flyers letting the public know they are hiring and then yesterday got another census form. Sweet! So if we fill it out again does J.C. get bonus points?
