Even Hoboken, which has higher property values, provides street parking for its residents. Not everyone who lives downtown takes to PATH to work.

And those people who leave or die off (mostly older people who hold onto their cars) will be replaced by new residents (especially by Wayne) who value a location by the path. Property values are not going down that close to Grove, don't be silly. Especially over parking, ha.

Another devoted follower I see. Actually the intro is so good Steve Fulop is now using it. And of course the shirt is in tune with the festive air in the hot real estate zone and yeah there are people who care about where the taxis are or are not.

This is literally my first time seeing a speak NJ video... And I am moved! My thoughts:

Where did you get the intro sound clip? I need it as the ring tone for people I don't like.

Your husband's shirt - amazing! At first I wasn't sure if he was in JC or at Carnival cocktail hour on the Lido deck. Do people ever ask him if he's Hawaiian?

Who gives a flying f*ck about the placement of the taxi stand? We are in one of the biggest cities in NJ - things changes. Walk a block.

Well parking is not exactly free in the downtown since we have to buy a permit from the Parking Authority and there are meters. It gets competitive though and drivers hang on corners overnite & get tickets in the hotness zone.

Why would people leave? Dowtown JC real estate and rental markets are as hot as ever even as parking has decreased.

And you're comparing parking to oxygen? I shouldn't even be responding to this but guess what - land is scarce and oxygen isn't.

Why do residents deserve free public parking?

This is one thing I never understood about Jersey City and its lame taxi stands. Why not just let them roam the city and peeps can just hail them like in all the other five boroughs

Yes, they are ticketed. The drivers at this point are ignoring the city and are complaining about the hardship it will place on them, they fear losing customers as well as city's fines.

Are they ticketed if they stand on Grove by Columbus and/or if they stand on Columbus? I agree that putting the taxi line on Wayne would be really stupid - and the drivers would have legal justification for partial reimbursement of their medallion.

Mostly likely rescuelife has a city hall job and wants no accountability from local government. The reason for the phony name.

holy crap! you DID make one of your patented videos! THANK YOU! I think your next issue should be about the bike lanes. You must oppose them! Jesus would not allow bike lanes, that's for sure.

Did they do this to make more room on CC because of the increase traffic from the Pulaski construction?

Blinky, I spoke to the tax drivers, they are being ticketed for not moving.

Is it actually moved? I assumed that it just shifted the head of the line from Columbus around the Corner to Grove and Columbus. The spaces on Wayne are just for the tail of the line which will pull up to the front as cabs leave.

I take the Grove Street taxis when I come home very late at night, so that I won't have to walk around at that hour.
Why move the taxi stand? A silly and unsafe move.

To be fair, I called IZOD the Brendan Byrne for a little too long.

Also, I'm just now starting to call it Citi Field, instead of Shea.

Yep I follow this naming convention myself. Sometimes people get confused when I tell them I'll be grabbing sushi at Ox Restaurant. This is also why I love visiting New Amsterdam, and I'm proud to live in the Town of Bergen, as citizen of New Netherlands. Hup Holland Hup!



It's a tradition in Rhode Island, where things change somewhat slowly and residents have a long memory, to refer to things by what they used to be. E.g.:

"Take a left where the bank used to be, then a right at the Old South Park that's condos now, and then the place you're looking for is in the old mill building where they used to make rubber nipples."

agree .. i understand Grove is congested but you need to have the taxi stand by the entrances/exits to the station, not a block away

also agree re: uber

Yvonne never fails to be hilarious (I'm going to call the PATH the H&M Tubes from now on), but she's spot-on this time. People come out of the PATH looking for a cab and they have to walk a block and then turn left? Who'd know that without even a sign with directions?

I don't think anyone, in the push for historic preservation, has ever suggested using old street names that few people know about. Just imagine the confusion that would ensue if people started telling taxi drivers to take them to Henderson St. or addressing their mail there. Based on your reasoning, this thread should be called "Taxi Stand on Railroad Ave." Anyway, yes, relocating the stand was a stupid idea. Time to bombard the Resident Response Center with calls and emails.
