Re: Flooding in Jersey City
Home away from home
Home away from home


Can anybody chime in about flooding on 5th between Jersey and Coles? A co-worker moved into a basement unit and is a little concerned after the fact. I've read the threads here but have not seen anything too specific about that area. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone comment on 5th Street between Brunswick and Monmouth? I have some friends who looked at a rental there. Area seems to be a mix of old-timers and families. I have been here awhile but that area is not my stomping grounds. Any info would be welcomed. Thanks!

Re: With Number Of Carjackings Soaring, Hudson County And JC Expand Task Force To Target Perpetrators

JerseyCityNj wrote: Most carjackings in Hudson County, Jersey City involve threats with weapons that can't be ignored Published: Tuesday, March 27, 2012, 3:00 AM By Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal Several schemes are employed in carjackings, and being alert is the best defense, officials say. In one scheme, the attacker bumps the victim?s vehicle and when the victim gets out to assess damage and exchange information, their vehicle is taken. In another scenario, an accident is staged that can include a simulated injury. When the victim stops to assist, their vehicle is taken, officials say. Sometimes the driver of the vehicle behind the victim gets the victim?s attention and indicates there is a problem with the victim?s car. The victim pulls over and their vehicle is taken. Finally, sometimes carjackers follow the victim and when the victim pulls into a driveway, the carjackers pull up, trap the vehicle and take it. In the Jersey City area, most carjackings simply involve a carjacker approaching a vehicle and threatening to use a weapon if the driver does not comply.
All that information about how other folks carjack really is beside the point if the MO in JC is simply to walk up and wave a gun. But then I guess that would be a really short article.
You can never be too sure!!

I have heard that the guys who are redoing the brownstone on Pavonia near Coles Street have purchased the church and are planning to put up 12-14 units.

I heard from a neighbor that the old Baptist church on Pavonia Avenue between Coles Street and Monmouth Street is going to be converted into 12-14 condo units. Anyone know anything?

Thank You all for the information. Does anybody know what the construction is like? Is there good insulation between the units? Street noise is unavoidable but I hate hearing neighbors thru the walls. Thank you again.

I was wondering if anyone on this forum lives on that block and can offer any insight about the homes there. I was interested in the quality of the construction and neighbors. I believe they were built in the 1990's. I was also wondering if anyone knows the plans for the old train embankment. Thank You in advance.

3) Anyone who thinks that "a Honda, it can't be that loud" has never: heard a four cylinder with straight pipes at full rip, been to a motorcycle race, or know that much about bikes.
4) A friend of mine had a loud pipe on his bike and had the sense to troll along at low revs when he was in town, especially late at night/early in the morning.
5) While people like you believe that you are champions of freedom, you only destroy freedom with your irresponsible behavior. This is what really bugs me as a rider - the political response to douchebags who disturb the peace come down on everyone who rides and not just themselves.

The person who [according to pooper] wrote on the sidewalk in front of his house in multi-colored chalks, "YOUR BIKE IS REALLY LAME" is a frickin' genius.

CORRELATION??? who gives a sh__ about correlation, it's clear to see that you, just like the others are more concerned about other people's business and not your own. If it is in fact a Honda, it can't be that loud(u probably can't tell the difference anyway, none rider), which means that if anybody turns on any type of vehicle the nosey people in that area have to know what is going on, how sorry is that...
And to you mr. correlation, I will drive up and down any street I please at whatever time I want, as many times as I want, and I want to see somebody try and do something about it... You should be so lucky you don't have me for a neighbor, you would pack up and go back where you came from in a hurry!!!(read my username WUZ HERE FIRST). IF YOU DON'T WANNA HEAR LOUD PIPES, LEAVE THE CITY AND GO BACK TO YOUR "BURBS..."


First off- It's "Mr. Benedict" to you, spelling champ!

Secondly, yes, based on the fact that you have multiple posts on one thread, you obviously DO care what people think.

And third- While my bike may be a 1942 Elgin cruiser, I do have multiple friends who do ride motorcycles as well, and they are all relatively considerate when doing so. They get on their bike, and they go ride. They don't do laps around the block with their pipes screaming "look at me, look at me!! I have a motorcycle!!"

And lastly, I have been running around these streets since the mid 80's. While not born and bread like you apparently, don't take me some yuppie from Paulus Hook. (no offence to the yuppies in Paulus Hook. I'm sure you are all charming people)

Re: Greenville: Driver in fatal crash, killing a 7-year-old Jersey City boy is also a confessed burglar
Home away from home

If this guy had been obeying the speed limit he would have stayed in the right place at the right time. 50 plus mph on our residential streets is ridiculous. It is time for the Police to assign a Task Force to end the cycle of speeding, hit and run and DWI related deaths that seem to occur every other day in JC. Spot checks on vehicles and drivers uncovers alot of other violations and outstanding warrants. The cops in NYC took alot of scum-bags off the streets just by enforcing the "quality of life" laws. It may seem minor or trivial to some to go after these people but that is why they should not be "policing" our streets. Timothy McVeigh and David Berkowitz were both captured for violating "minor" laws that were just the tip of the iceberg.

My "working" for The City of Jersey City has absolutely nothing to do with why I pay very close attention to all types of situations concerning off- duty details. In the last 10 years, I've grown to be a bit more educated about "off duty details" and how departments through out the state handle these types of situations and civilian complaints. If you think for one moment I will post to protect any law enforcement officer behaving badly, you're deeply mistaken.

I suggest if anyone wants any further details you call Councilman Fulop and get the information from him.


Not for Nothing, you are asking us to call a Politician. How do we know he isn't try to protect the city's interests? I searched the Jersey Journal's database and found no reference to any story from this incident. I tried the Merit Review and found no reference there. All I am asking is if anyone has some concrete evidence or a reliable Press reference to get to the bottom of this story. I am not accusing anyone of anything but it is difficult to just take someone's word on an internet blog. I am not anti-cop but these guys should know better, they are not teenagers.

I have googled every possible variant of this incident and have not found anything. It seems that the Merit Review Board only handles cases in which the punishment is challenged by a NJ State employee. If anyone has some evidence that these guys were punished I (and I am sure everyone else) would love to see it. I am sorry but I can't take the word of another city employee unless some proof is brought forward.

Re: Cops and Crime and Mayor Dumb ass

I'm not positive but I believe the cops at Construction sites are not tecnically on duty as they are paid by the Construction companies. They can enforce the law of course but usually only to the benefit of the Construction company. Thats why they are often in their personal vehicles and not squad cars. Film companies are required to do the same when shooting in JC, while in NYC only if they need to close streets or re-direct traffic. It is a form of "graft".

Cops and Crime and Mayor Dumb ass
Home away from home
Home away from home


I haven't read or posted on this site in a long time but just by reading a few posts it seems nothing has changed but instead got worse in JC. About a month ago a guy ran a STOP sign just as I stepped off the curb and missed me by a few feet. I noticed he had a Police Shield in his window and when I yelled after him he flipped me the bird. Lets face it, It's Healy Time!! The Police Dept. has become another form of "Work-fare" for the lucky few who have connections in the force. Mayor McDrunky's cousin or brother-in-law or whatever he was is the best example. Thrown off the Middletown NJ force he gets a job here in JC through our esteemed Mayor and proceeds to drive drunk on 1-9 and kill a toddler. The cops in my area make NO effort to enforce traffic laws. They hassle innocent residents for walking dogs off leash while just steps away drivers casual blow through STOP signs and speed in areas where children are crossing the street. If you are the victim of a crime they are expert at making you feel that it is your fault. How dare you walk home from the PATH train at 9:00pm!!!! I always supported the Police but these guys have erroded my respect. Love him or hate him Guiliani understood that by going after fare-jumpers etc. cops often netted people with outstanding criminal warrants. How about pulling over that speeder or the guy who just blew through a STOP sign? Maybe not, it could be Mayor DWI.
