I was in the city when it happened (didn't see or actually hear a thing other then a few emergency sirens - the police must of got there very fast as there is a police post not 25 feet from that intersection under the station clocks) and it was said that this guy came from a dysfunctional family, had relationship issues, was unemployed, had a petty criminal history with police and involved with drugs for a good part of his life ... there is also a suggestion that he hung out at the gym and steroids could also be a factor (Basically this dude had little prospects in life) .... I'm sure the police will sort this out and my neighbors speculate its more to do with mental health issues then anything else and that this nutter simply wanted attention in all the wrong ways.

The guy was not making claim to any religious faction or yelled allahu akbar or crap like that.

The good news is that no-one was killed

From the NY Daily News:

Police said that they had arrested the 32-year-old driver of the car, who was known to police and had mental health as well as drug problems in the past.

No motive was given for the crash and Acting Commissioner Shane Patton, who added that the driver had recently been receiving mental health treatment, said that there is no reason to believe that terrorism was involved.

Merry Christmas to the JClisters - I'm experiencing my first full summer during christmas and learning all about the game of cricket. Its warm and so far the season and country change has been great. The 'locals' have been welcoming and the community in general have been hospitable. To a certain degree I'm a novelty, however many have visited NY on many occasions. The winter isn't cold, but rather wet and I'm working for a terrific construction co. with numerous projects on the go within the city limits of Melbourne. cheers to all.

Over 60 building in the UK are to be audited and tested that have the same cladding issues for community safety. City Officials and Inspectors are to test and sign off on them to confirm that they are safe.

Here in Melbourne they are doing the same ... JC should also do such an investigation in the interest of community safety ... Central Equity Limited is a global player in development and construction so I'd look at their buildings to start with ... Once independently tested, they can be given a 'green light' on materials used to keep residents and insurance co's happy.

4. What is also interesting is that I've stumbled across construction companies with various names that operated in JC/NJ and here, with slightly alternative names but appear to be the same company !



What are the names you've found?

What a disaster in the UK regarding the residential tower fire - They had a similar, but not as dramatic fire here in Melbourne and I'm betting the same 'conditions' apply in both locations.

1. Developers handing over fists of campaign money to local and State politicians to get 'favors', lacks 'inspections' and failures to respond to complaints.

2. The use of cheap-ass cladding that doesn't meet building standards.

3. Here in Melbourne, local governments are doing an audit on building materials used and multi-million dollar corrections in construction are being instituted and even property insurance companies are jumping on board

4. What is also interesting is that I've stumbled across construction companies with various names that operated in JC/NJ and here, with slightly alternative names but appear to be the same company !

5. I'm betting that the cladding supplier and/or construction company that is involved with the fire in the UK overnight did many works in NJ and NY.

6. Rumours are that insurance companies are refusing to cough up money if breaches have occurred and buildings burn down.

I hope that everyone including HOA 's, have performed due diligence on their highrise complex buildings before the developer's warranty period is over !!!!

Good for you. I heard it is not easy to secure an Australian visa thst way. By the way, when Trump mentions that US should have an Australian-like merit-based immigration system he gets skewered by liberals. So nicely played Mr Liberal, nicely played.

I was able to secure a permanent visa (work and reside) via the skills-select criteria.

The FAB has landed and settling just nicely in Canterbury, Victoria, Australia.
The neighbors have been welcoming and I'm starting on Monday with a major construction co. that operates here and in Asia. The local water tastes nicer and even the air seems cleaner. A BIG thanks to Trump and for the record, the grass is greener elsewhere !
