One thing you missed RCResident, I never said to use public funds or public lands. I said the city could have done a fundraiser for them. There are so many negative things associated with inner youth in JC, St. Anthony was a positive thing. In the video on Showtime, you could see how much the youth loved their school. I am sorry it is not available for the next generation. Our youth needs direction and St. Anthony HS gave them that.

It's called separation of church and state Yvonne. We, the taxpayers, aren't supposed to be worrying about whether a Catholic school survives or not. It's a private matter, and it's their business.

And as for a city sponsored fundraiser, those things don't just happen magically. It takes time and effort to put them on. That would be tax payer dollars to pay city workers to organize and run it for a religious institution.


Neither should we worry about a private entity called the Liberty Science Center. Taxpayers should not be on the hook to give them land. As it is, the Science Center does not pay anything to the city because it is tax exempt, too. So why should the city be giving a private organization land?


Well going with your argument, two wrongs don't make a right. But this is something you value, so it's different rules I guess.

And how do you propose the city government go about saving a private religious institution? I see your posts. Many seem to be of the right of center, market rules variety. Now you want the government involved?

It's about priorities. Mandating that all city buildings have gender neutral bathrooms is grandstanding, a complete waste of money, and accomplishes absolutely nothing.

That money would be much better spent trying to save this school, and to help the underprivileged youth make something of themselves and stay off the streets. And as I said, the least the guy could do is try and gin up support for fundraising.

It's the difference between caring about looking good vs. actually doing good.


More like the difference between making a logical argument vs. slamming your political opponent.

I don't like Fulop either but your post is nonsensical.

This is not a tax payer funded institution. As a matter of fact, it's tax exempt. And you, who drones on and on about tax fairness, shouldn't be expecting the city government to spend a dime organizing for something that is not paying its fair share.

Even if I thought they should, which I don't, I would still say the exact same thing to you, given your stance on tax dollars.

Let's show some consistency here.

Dude, it's a private institution. This is not a public school. The market forces have spoken. Enrollment is dropping, thus it can no longer support itself.

If it's that damn important to you, then get a bunch of people together and raise funds for it. Or ask the Catholic Church to support it. The larger Church has plenty of money. But government should not be involved in a private, religious institution.

Live by your rules, die by them. Don't flip flop because it's suddenly something you value.

Yeah, we just assumed they liked tall students...


St. Anthony HS started out as a high school for Polish immigrant children, not tall children. It was part of the now closed grammar school and the church which still exists. The church did well to extend the school to other ethnic groups.

Sad day for Jersey City. Sad day for fans of HS basketball. Sad day for lots of underprivileged HS kids in Jersey City.

Bob Hurley is a Jersey City treasure.

developers will be salivating to get that land between 6 and 8 Street / Marin to Manila ! I've lived next to St A for 13 years, this sucks. Coach H always stopped to chat.

JERSEY CITY — The home of the most storied high school boys basketball program in New Jersey history is closing its doors.

St. Anthony High School will suspend operations at the end of the 2016-17 school year in June due to a lack of funding and dwindling enrollment, a source familiar with the decision told NJ Advance Media. Bob Hurley Sr., the school's principal and basketball team's Hall of Fame coach, was meeting with his staff to announce the news on Wednesday.
