I don't think they actually make that much money off the parking. They have to charge something to discourage commuters and others from treating the mall lot as some sort of park-and-ride. If you look at the fee schedule for parking there, the cost to park there shoots up exponentially after 4 hours. If they didn't do that, I can picture a lot people driving there and then taking the PATH the rest of the way to work.


That's exactly why they did that. The lot would be max capacity on busy shopping days (like say... this month) from commuters using it as free parking for the path and ferries.

As a resident of that neighborhood, I can say that no, you will not find a spot. All you will do is create more traffic and make it more difficult for the people who actually live here to get around.

Just suck it up and deal with the fact that if you want to drive to the mall, you'll have to pay for parking.

If you don't want to pay for parking take public transportation. There are buses, a PATH train and a Light Rail that go directly to Newport Mall. Use them.

+1. Seriously, cough up a few bucks to park at the mall. Or take public transportation.

Aside from the mall in the 33rd. St. PATH station in Nyc I believe this is the only mall in the country without a parking lot. Newport Mall happens to be located near a commuter parking lot. It is not the mall's parking lot.

please don't encourage people to park on the 8th and 9th st. side streets... it's already hard enough for us residents to find parking... just pay the $$ or drive to a mall with free parking, k?

If I have learned anything from living in Jersey City, just follow the rules. The police, parking authority, etc. are just waiting for you to screw up so they can fine the heck out you. This means, when you ride the light rail, buy a round trip ticket and validate it or else there is a good chance you will get a $70 ticket. Park on the correct side of the street and if you don't have a permit, 2 hours means 2 hours. Park in the correct lots. It's not to difficult.

And most important rule, don't bitch about it on the JCList because most will have no sympathy for you.

The validation at the concierge desk works, however, only the parking garage on the west side of the mall is accepting validated tickets. The garage that is connected to Macy's and JC Penny is no longer participating. I found out this past weekend. Also, the North East Garage doesn't accept the validated tickets.

Welcome to Jersey City lol

I refuse to pay for mall parking, for such a crappy mall. I usually park on 2nd street, behind BJs.....which is legal (make sure you read the street signs) :) A bit of walk, but doesn't everyone need to walk more?

The towing sign by BJ's is too small and old to be noticed as it should. That is part of the game. And there is no doubt that they are all in bed together playing that good old fashioned game of "kick-back."

I contacted Steve Fulop about this but realistically there's nothing he can do. I wrote to the State Attorney General's office and received no reply. And so it goes.

You mean zone permit, resident permit parking is different. Zone parking has a 2 hour limit, where resident parking does not allow parking.

I am impressed that they can remember who goes with which car. If you go into Shoprite, spend 15 minutes in there, then come out, walk over to the mall, how can they possibly remember which car you came from? especially when it it busy!

OMG, InTheHeights, did you just move here recently? This topic has been done to death on JCList, and the Webmaster will merge your thread with the one begun ages ago on this same topic. The upshot: Yes, we all know NOT to park there and shop at the mall. And NO, you won't find any sympathy on this forum for getting towed if you did indeed park at BJ's/ShopRite to avoid paying a few bucks for mall parking.

Seen them with their talkies/two-ways eyeing folks at all hours any day of the week.

Word to the wise? they are towing like crazy when you park at PepBoys, BJs, Shoprite to go to Newport Mall right now- Merry Christmas! I got towed last night, along with many others. Just a warning! Pay the $ to park at the mall (even though it's ridiculous that a mall charges you to park!) Trust me, it's better than paying the scummy tow company $150 like I did last night. (Plus cab fare to get there).
On a side note, I wonder if the guys at Pep Boys get a cut for snitching? I mean, someone is tipping off the tow company and making them a lot of dough! The cabbies benefit too, for sure. What a sleazy business to be in. It's a horrible feeling to spend all of your $ on Christmas gifts in the mall, and come outside only to find that your car is missing and you have to spend another hour and $150 to get it back.

As I posted before, I will not drop my car off at Pep Boys for repairs anymore. It may be their responsibility if my car is towed, but I REALLY don't want to take the chance then have to deal with all the hassle.

The blinds at Home Depot were a sort of sickly brown color and around $75 for the size I needed. The blinds at JCPenney are/were on sale for 40% off and worked out to about $50 each. We also already had a couple sets of the JCP blinds and they work/look great. Okay back to topic! Towing sucks!

So Mark,

Off topic but, what made you pick JCPenny for blinds over Home Depot with free parking? Do they have better/ more choices?

They seem to offer a lot and the prices look good...

Go Blinds...

As for your car being towed at Pep Boys - I would think Pep Boys is responsibility once you give them the keys and fill out the forms.

show your ID at the information kiosk (by the elevators) and they'll knock $1 off your parking.


For me there's a boundary crossed between the $1 refund and the $2 parking. I've gone elsewhere many times to avoid the $2 parking, but I can't be bothered to go get my dollar back if I'm forced to park there. I usually just need the anchor stores and 20 minutes or less and walking to the center of the mall isn't worth my time. The stores should just validate. I needed to run in to JCPenney last week to buy $300 worth of window blinds and I hesitated at the parking garage when I remembered that I had to pay the $2.

The chunk of parking lot directly outside the Pep Boys front door bordered by the concrete curbs is a separate lot than the BJs/ShopRite/BBB parking lot. I've had my car towed when it was left at Pep Boys for repair. The repair was to take all day, so I left the lot (I went to work... not the mall).
