I’m throw Bayonne into the mix. When you come off of the Turnpike onto 53rd street the entire right lane is still filled with snow and ice all the way to Broadway. So the normally backed up 53rd street is even more backed up now because it is one lane. Way to go Bayonne DPW.

Jersey City had a crew of staff shoveling the sidewalks and parking lot of the school where Fulop is having his 'State of the City' campaign speech tomorrow night-nice Sunday doubletime gig to help him out! Did the same crew go to any other locations this weekend?

Walked back on Eighth St, between Manila and Marin, not shoveled along the city owned police dept parking lot.

However, Marin and Manila were cleared between Sixth and Eighth Sts.

What gives?

Can't you walk on the other side of the street ?

The only good thing is those fools do get fined by having their cars damaged. Driving around this morning I saw 4 cars sticking out into street that had frontend damage. Oh well.


I'm currently doing exactly this. Sorry.

As citizens don't we have the right to swear ourselves in at the violations bureau in the city court house ? Just like motor vehicle tickets we should exercise our rights and fight these infractions if our elected officials will not.

It's not just storefronts. The Stretch of Newark avenue sidewalk after the cemetery is a disgrace. This is used by students, parents, anyone trying to get downtown. Newark Ave is a race track and too dangerous to walk in. Signs mean NOTHING here. Please do NOT suggest crossing Newark at 8 Am unless there is a Police officer directing traffic.

Where's the sanitation inspectors? Isn't this their turf? Gerry McCann can give me a bullshit ticket because he says my tenants aren't putting out recycling, but where is he when people's lives are at stake?

I was walking past Dickinson today over unshoveled walks, and 2 cops are standing there, and one says "careful" as I nearly go down. WTF?? How about enforcement instead of spectating the carnage?

That douchebag that "owns" the Enbankment never shovels it. I really hope the city levies massive fines against him every snowstorm.

If you own or have access to a shovel, you can be the hero this city deserves.

Oasis of Salvation Church on Wayne St continues to never remove snow unless it snows on Sunday. I have submitted complaints over the last two years, and nothing ever happens.

Last year my wife was pregnant and had to struggle to walk to the PATH. This year we have to pick up and carry the stroller over the church's uncleared sidewalks. That church is the worst neighbor on my block.

Is there any evidence that the city actually enforces this ordinance? Two days later, at least eight lots on my block haven't shoveled. Pedestrians are struggling. It's dangerous.

§ 296-1.1. - Duties of owners or occupants of residential property; time for removal.
Every owner, occupant or person having charge of a residential building or vacant lot shall, in case of a snowfall, clear such snow from the sidewalks and gutters thereof to the extent of one foot outside the curb in front of the building or lot, as well as on the side thereof where the building or lot faces on more than one street, within eight hours after the snow has fallen. If the snow has fallen during the night, removal shall be finished within eight hours after sunrise.

This is as good a place as any I guess...

drivers, when you're trying to get out of an icy spot, it's all about torque. This is not a speed issue. Low gear, most minimal pressure on accelerator possible, rock gently. Spinning the tires is only making it worse.

Tip …..to get under the ice on a sidewalk I use a construction type square edge shovel with handle. You can get a good chop in or get down low right under the ice with it. It is better than a tall ice chopper.

PS – I saw no ponies in my travels around Jersey City this morning. Sad.

I was driving around Journal Square area to Greenville. The a-holes shoveling out their cars and just throwing the boulders of ice into the street is amazing. I’m talking about major roadways like JFK Blvd, Broadway, and West Side. Bad news.

I agree a lot of sidewalks are solid ice in front of stores and houses, crosswalks are also bad.

Side walk along Lincoln Park on West Side is solid ice people are walking in the street.

The streets were slick this morning but now seem to be back to black top.

Report unshoveled sidewalks here:

https://en.seeclickfix.com/jersey-city


During a Snow Emergency:

Under City Ordinance, Chapter 296 - 1-6, residents are required to shovel snow and ice from the sidewalks surrounding their property within 8 hours of snowfall or by sunrise, whichever comes first

Under City Ordinance, Chapter 296 - 1-6, business owners are required to remove snow and ice from the sidewalks surrounding their property within 4 hours of snowfall or by sunrise, whichever comes first

If a property has not been cleared of snow or ice in a timely fashion, or if an individual is shoveling snow into the street, residents can contact OEM at 201-547-5566 or 201-547-5681

When shoveling snow, residents and business owners are asked to create a path wide enough for a stroller or wheelchair to get through. Anyone who does not shovel their sidewalk could receive a summons from the JCIA

If snow or ice has not been cleared within one to two days after the storm, please contact the Resident Response Center at 201-547- 4900.

A very icy walk this am. Be careful everyone

Having just walked to Journal Sq and back, PS 31 has done a horrible job cleaning the sidewalk on Kennedy. Its passable for just one person. Over at the Square, the meter parking/taxi stand next to Zip ave hasn't been touched. The sidewalk on Kennedy and Route 139 after the 7/11 has not been touched as well.

Fair point.


It's totally fair to distrust either governments or less-responsible owners, especially since neither really does a great job of it in any city. But then what do you do?

That's why I think some combination of one backing up the other might be best.

Is your ass public property?
my ass is a national treasure. It's on the list of Registered National Historic Landmarks.


On another note, frequently City Hall isn't even shovelled for a week, I don't trust the city government to come shovel my sidewalk for me.

The simple, sober approach, without all the theatrics, is simply to petition the City to hand out more fines towards people who are not complying with the law.


I am absolutely relating it to favoritism toward driving, which it absolutely both partially stems from and concretely perpetuates.

But whatever, you're right, it is a legitimate issue on its own.

I agree with more fines, but that's probably not enough. Big, absentee owners—including some you might not expect, like churches—just absorb fines. What is, it, $110? That barely registers with some developer holding a vacant lot for future development.

That's why I think there needs to be some government backup, with billing to recoup the cost of the work.

This stuff needs to get done. It's a safety issue, not some pie-in-the-sky gummint program.

I suppose there's some merit to what you say, but what about the fact that a car slipping out of control on an unplowed, icy street is much more a potential death machine than an individual slipping on a sidewalk. Both are safety issues, but cars slipping around on an un-cleared road pose a much greater threat to the general public. Hence the need for the government function. It would be nice if the government did both, but I suppose funds are limited.


A fair point, but here's a counterpoint: After a big snow, some of the damage those death machines most easily and most grievously cause is ... running down pedestrians who are walking in the road—because they have nowhere else to walk. Pedestrians are regularly found dead under piles of melting snow, often in places they wouldn't, and shouldn't, normally walk.
