He was even called ?your homeboy? on this website just the other day, but again, I just can?t figure it out.


No, your verbal slurping of the Christie administration is the evidence of that. Second worst job growth in the country, but you praise him at every turn, not to mention how he destroyed the state's credit rating.

He didn't even nominate any Oral Roberts grads to the State Supreme Court, and your compatriots in South Carolina will not take kindly to a governor that doesn't think Jesus himself wrote the Constitution.

LOL LOL

Yeah Obama never worked with Republicans.

Just nominated LaHood and Chuck Hagel to cabinet level positions...

Passed a healthcare law developed by the Heritage Foundation...

But he didn't kiss the butt of a "leader" whose stated goal was to make him a one term President.

The idea that Obama owes anything to Republicans is ridiculous. They made their bed- they ran the country for 8 years, ran it into the ground and then cried (literally, cried Boehner) when he didn't clean up their dirty diaper fast enough.

And unsurprisingly, Republicans, given their support comes mostly from religious wingnuts, gun clingers, and people who didn't graduate high school, still can't understand the one rule changed by Reid about select JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS not general laws..

And why did he change it? Could it because Republicans REFUSED to consider any nominations and court cases were languishing for years, in the typical spirit of Republican idiocy?

Maybe Obama should have spotted some Republican cooperation when they shut down the government and cost the country billions so a Canadian could talk about something on the Presidential trail other than how banning gay marriage speaks to personal freedom.

Yes. cities have so few malls.

Not like there is say, a Manhattan Mall, smack dab in the middle of the busiest part of Manhattan, am I right?

I lived a 2 minute walk from the mall for over 2.5 years, and it was fantastic (now it's a 10 minute walk). Being shielded from cold/heat/rain, the convenience of actual stores one needs instead of a plethora of 99 cents stores or kale emporiums...

People in HP and Newport LIKE THE MALL that's why many people move there.

I'm for refurbishing the garage side on Marin for storefronts, but the mall should stay and not be disturbed by hipster dystopic visions for making life miserable for everyone else. If you don't like the mall, the beautiful streetscapes of Newark Ave are close by....

Obama was "rejected"

Except he won twice- by much bigger margins than Bush.

Except voters in 3 red states voted to raise the minimum wage.


Obama was elected "because of his race"

Yes, that's why he won New Hampshire and Iowa. Because he's black.

The "majority of voters" spoke

Or the lowest turnout since 1942 mostly in red states.

Or when the electorate was 25% over 60- hint hint- that's not the voting population, no matter how many minorities or young people you want to disenfranchise.

Also I love how people with extremely far right views are always "independent" and those views heckle Obama for doing things Reagan did repeatedly.

The Republican Party of 2014 is transparent racist, corporate welfare, homophobic, xenophobic garbage. It is the party of people who want to shove religion down your throat and allow corporations to steal from you.

And it wins in red, poor America filled with racists who think that corporations will protect them by people who fear the other. And it wins because those people are flabbergasted that a black man is ordering white people around.

It doesn't win nationally- and it won't win in 2016.

It will be nice until you guys are spinning the latest Congressional shutdown costing billions led by the Canadian destined for the Presidency, or why it's personal freedom to nullify DC's marijuana law, or why we should let Comcast and Verizon overcharge for the internet in the name of freedom.

Oh, and white Southern men are dying, and are being replaced by Hispanics, who unsurprisingly don't support people who think the color of their skin is grounds for their detention.

Say buh bye! You could always move to another country that shares Republican values, like Iran, if they were to accept in so many people with barely a high school education.

PATH is run by the PA. There is better chance of Netanyahu making out Abbas on live TV than the PA coming out with a plan to expand the PATH or otherwise make it better in a way that doesn't provide a concrete benefit for them (like the airport expansion right to their facilities).

JC would be moronic to connect development to PATH improvement. The MTA nor no subway service in any gentrifying space anywhere in the world makes such a connection.

Re: Christie wants GOP control over ‘voting mechanisms’

Multiple judges have said voter fraud is made up.

Hmm a judge, or the Christie staffer who trolls this board? Who to believe?

But by the way- a gun ID is OK. And in North Carolina and Florida, they actually banned high schools from registering 18 year olds, and multiple states cancelled Sunday voting and same day registration.

Because you know, if you register the same day with a birth certificate, or vote on Sunday instead of Tuesday, it's some how more likely you're black or young.

Oh did I say black or young? I meant to say Mexican. Whoops no I meant to say fraudy. That's right fraudy.

Plus without voter ID, all the ISIS members crossing the border with Ebola will have extra time to vomit into the mouths of the poll workers, thus spreading Ebola, all part of Obama's socialist plan.

Reagan raised taxes, gave illegals amnesty, raised the debt ceiling, negotiated with terrorists...

But he wasn't black- therein lies the difference.

Oh wow Republicans elected a black Mormon. They just hate the 95% of black people that doesn't vote how the Koch Brothers pay them to.

This election had the lowest turnout since 2016- you really think people won't vote in 2016 to get Hillary in or to keep the Canadian or the Civil Rights Act opponent out (Christie, Perry, and Walker will be under indictment or in jail by that time)...and good luck electing another Bush...

Obama killed Bin Laden, unemployment is down, gas prices down, stock prices through the roof...Republicans only won because 1 in 4 voters on Tuesday were over 60 and most of them are deathly afraid of black people, gays and think that Mexicans are bringing ISIS and Ebola over the border because they just watch Fox News all day...

Hey remember in 2010 when the "Republican Wave" spelled doom for Obama, or when Christie being elected was doom for Obama, or the Virginia governor now heading to jail was doom for Obama, or when Scott Brown being elected was doom for Obama? What happened in 2012- oh right- Republicans were crushed twice. Those voters will be back.

To quote Megan Kelly, do you guys really believe what you say, or is it just because you're a Republican?

In the interim, I look forward to Joni Ernst looking to nullify federal laws and Ted Cruz trying to pass a gay marriage amendment and shut down the government so the world can see for the upteenth time what the party of corporate welfare and religious extremeism is all about; racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, stealing from the middle class to reward corporations...

Obama is already a better President than any rightie since Eisenhower. Maybe next time tell your President not to fund terrorist organizations or declare 87 billion dollar wars on credit cards.

The PA shouldn't have funds for jack crap. They are a corrupt organization and they should be shuttered.

The ARC should have been built because it would make life easier for everyone in NJ who commutes to NYC or could get a (better) job there. But it wasn't because one man's braggadoccio and needing an "achievement" to add to a bare resume.

If he didn't want the ARC he should have supported the MTA expanding the 7 over here- and NY would have bought on because that would have opened NJ jobs to people in Queens, and vice versa...

NJ needs infrastructure but it shouldn't be in the hands of a political mafia.

20 minutes from 100 steps to Hoboken PATH? Maybe if you are running. The Heights doesn't have the 24/7 transportation that JSQ or DTJC have.

Also I agree DTJC isn't fully gentrified, there are plenty of sad looking blocks especially west of Jersey, the whole area by Pathmark still waits, there's new buildings by the tunnel and Powerhouse but still plenty of vacancies as well.

You can see from the images posted also that the Hoboken border cuts on a diagonal, so the view from the JC side will face the new buildings, and then a portion of JC which JC will likely develop down the line.

The image shown in the Hoboken 411 link shows that the tracks would be obscured.

It's also a 15 minute walk to the PATH from Zephyr/700 and that is to the Hoboken PATH so it's the first stop in but it's not from Newport either.

Holland Gardens is supposed to be demolished.

There are approvals for two buildings on Hoboken Ave...even further west from Cast Iron, still in JC, for one condo and one apartment building, the Van Leer Lofts.

If you think the area compares to Greenville or BL you need your head examined.

Mount Laurel hasn't been gutted at all.

The last decision still stands and Christie's attempts to rip apart COAH have failed, obviously, much to chagrin to his campaign bot who posts here.

Short Hills still has to zone to provide affordable housing...womp womp...yes the teachers making 40k that Christie blames for every problem in this state have to live somewhere. Why can't they be more like police union that Christie has no qualms with, and make 100k without a degree to stop 18 year olds in Short Hills from drinking beer, the real bane of Essex County?

But alas, we shouldn't be surprised that Christie fans don't know the law...their own dear leader doesn't know or doesn't care.

Appears to be part of a huge project for a number of buildings (per them, "a new neighborhood"): http://sohowestnj.com/

Based on what I have seen of this developer in Hoboken, they appear to consistently buy up large areas of borderline areas and then build a bunch of loft style high end housing. But if you look around Cast Iron Lofts a bunch of adjacent tracts are now fenced off, presumably because they're bought up by these guys and will be part of that effort.


Looks like they will be offering a $15 shuttle late at night on the weekends as well for residents.

And they are planning buildings basically between 15th and 18th between Jersey and Coles.

I also previously read that there is some retail planned for Lackawanna, don't know who was behind it and have seen no activity.

Re: Area between Tunnel and Hoboken

My original post was about a condo I looked at on Grove between 14th and 15th, so it could be possible that that is where Honeycat lives. There are a few buildings there, and then what appear to be townhomes across from St. Lucy's. There are also a few buildings on 16th Street with apartments.

Honeycat- where was it confirmed that it will be a hotel by Burke's?

Frankly what scared me off from a nice, large condo at a good price on that block was Burke's and the homeless shelter. You're shielded from that more by 700.

IMO, that area has so much potential...walk to Newport, Hoboken, HP...so much shopping. If they got rid of Holland Gardens (and they are supposed to) it would make a real dent.

Re: Whole Foods in JC?

Wegmans could fit in the area north of the tunnel and would get plenty of people from Hoboken that way too.

TJ could fit downtown- it's a much smaller footprint, maybe in the mall when Sears and JC Penny inevitably go under.

I could do without Whole Foods.

The A&P is nice, no crowds, and you can get decent prices if you get sale items. The Shop Rite is god awful and I only deal with it if it's a big sale. The entire place is a madhouse. I've never been so aggravated to go food shopping.

The Pathmark is in desperate need of an overhaul. Imagine what that whole plaza could be with even TJ as an anchor.

Re: What's going there?

Let me clarify my point about the dollar stores.

My point is that there are stores- plural. One dollar store isn't a problem. But there are multiple discount places- in addition to the dollar store in the mall.

While I seem to somewhat fit as a "bro" based on this board's definition- I have shopped at the dollar store before- but again the one in the mall- for red solos and beer pong balls- take that hipsters!

JC has more diversity than Hoboken- but it's also 4-5x the size population wise. DTJC's main diversity these days comes in the form of the Fiilippino and Indian communities- which some people (and I would not agree with them) would say doesn't constitute their PC version of diversity.

It's all about property values. We need more affluent retail and restaurants. There is plenty of clientele for multiple discount stores, but isn't downtown.

Re: Proposed development on Van Vorst between Sussex & Morris

Great, now dog poo. Lord knows how that will impact the sewers, overstressed parks, the PATH, people having to look at 15 story buildings, and historic parking lots and abandoned buildings.

If this lot isn't turned into an organic kale and stroller and used record store that doesn't accept credit card, it is only time before Jersey City turns into some mangled brew of Asia, Hoboken, and Union City.

Bros will eating from nightmarkets, consuming major brand beer, while their large dogs poop everywhere. Abandoned parking lots will become naked sushi restaurants, covered by 15 story buildings. At this point, Van Vorst is turned into a Chipotle and Hamilton Park is a parking garage.

Governor Fulop will allow this. The PATH will be packed, as more people come to Jersey City as every organic store has turned into a bar open until 6AM. And now, 15 story buildings have 7 stories of bars and the 8th floor has a Republican and the 9th has someone who wants to open a Fridays.

The entire historic district will be demolished, and will be redeveloped by Mr. Burns and Donald Trump. Every building must be 25 stories and if you don't own a car you will be castrated.

It's only time guys. I would move to Brooklyn now!!! Hurry!!!

You do realize that there are plenty of people in JC like that already.

I'm 28, male, straight, single, a lawyer, my parents live in NJ, love football. Don't shop at any of those stores though and never did. Those are for HS kids anyway. No one wears Abercrombie anymore. And I really hate hipsters and everything they stand for. But they are not "offbeat" whatsoever, basically, they are everything they hate. The bros are true to themselves. They legit like most of things you mention. The hipsters like what the other hipsters tell them too. Skinny jeans are not comfortable nor are they flattering. PBR sucks. Brooklyn is so commercial and UES is now considered more "offbeat".

I basically respect every counter culture, foreign culture (been all over the world), LGBT culture, you name it except hispters...I wish all the hipsters DT would leave downtown and head to Newark already before they ruin that or whatever the next generation of "offbeat" is.

And it would be thrilling to have a "bro" place, maybe it starts to scare them off and it sure is hell better than a dollar store.

There are several benefits to development

- Increased tax ratables- more people sharing the burden

- More upper class professionals = more retail and restaurants downtown, not dollar stores and CH Martin

- More voters to effect and vote on ACTUAL problems like Port Authority shennanigans

This isn't about openness. This is about histrionics. Look at what happened with that building in Hamilton Park that was two stories taller than its neighbor. People were CRYING at the meeting.

Crying isn't open debate. This isn't about democratic process, it's about people who think they have the right to tell other people how to handle their property without that legal right.

Sunshine is not in your deed.

These arguments are so ridiculous. More cars? No one in that location needs a car.

This is a city. You know who else will need more sewers? Whole Foods. Trader Joe's. But the day the real thread comes announcing them, the NIMBY crowd won't be crying "But what of the sewers? Won't someone please think of the sewers?!?!!"

The idea that is part of some shadow conspiracy to bring in development is a joke. The city repeatedly hands over the keys to the neighborhood associations that are filled with NIMBY types that do everything to make everyone else not a granola type miserable.

Every great city has big buildings. It's a city. It's not a suburb. Please. That is the fundamental that NIMBYs don't get. Cities have tall buildings. Suburbs have 4 story buildings.

LOL OK.

So it happened for decades, so it's justified?

Except that's bullcrap.

The PATH fare has been more than doubled in a four year period previously?

The PATH has been shut down for days at a time previously- aside from Sandy and 9/11?

Your spin machine for Christie fails to realize he has presides over multiple mass transit debacles. The Super Bowl. The ARC tunnel. The PATH.

Infrastructure and education are the small government aspects of the Christie administration. Political patronage is rampant. If Christie was an agent of change, the PA would change. He doubled down- even if you don't think he had anything to with Bridgegate, he appointed the primary actor to a made up position. No one put a gun to his head to do that. That wasn't Cuomo.

People in the neighborhood should have input, but they shouldn't get to make the call with something like a stop sign or speed bump.

The main danger in that area is Eight and Erie, but we have to pretend like it's Pavonia because people in the neighborhood association have kids crossing there? That's not right.

Totally agree. I think the City needs to close that entire block during school hours.

At the very least, force all traffic right on Erie and Pavonia - those using Erie as a cut-through to the Holland Tunnel need to be inconvenienced as much as possible.


So I should be later for work leaving the city where I pay taxes for what reason again?

No one is crossing at Pavonia. They're crossing at 8th and 9th to go to the PATH. 8th is where the trouble is. Yet there is no bump heading up to that lethal intersection. Pavonia doesn't even have oncoming traffic. This is just a bunch of whining from the neighborhood association. If someone told them a 6 story building was going up or there was a kale sale they'd forget about it.

This will just ADD more cars on MORE streets.

The whole problem is that what Fulop has been doing is letting the neighborhoods determine traffic flow instead of engineers. I trust engineers on this stuff more than yoga instructors.
