Re: PATH is down again today!

Home away from home


How many NJ residents use the PATH versus NY residents?

And Cuomo didn't appoint Samson and Wildstein to the board, nor make up a position for the latter and then claim to not know him and then claim he was criticized by a high school social studies teacher.

Cuomo didn't direct PA funds allocated for NY to road projects.

If Christie doesn't want to be blamed for the PA missteps, maybe he shouldn't have redirected its funds and appointed his cronies to its management.

You can blame both for the fare hikes- yet another Christie "small government tax increase" for the middle class.

Re: Proposed development on Van Vorst between Sussex & Morris

15 stories is not high.

Do people realize we live in the 2nd, soon to be first, biggest city in NJ, directly across from the biggest city in America?

The "anti-development" crowd wants all the amenities of Jersey City and the character of Mendham.

No one walking down the street is even going to notice. This is not terribly far from the towers around Exchange and Grove.

I'm sure though Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and lord know who else is just chomping at the bit to develop in a place where most current residents have an attitude against any kind of addition of residents.

Oh, and in before someone mentions a stressed park or an overcrowded PATH train.

Don't like it, we have this magical place here in New Jersey called the suburbs. Towns of 3 people with town councils where someone tries to build a shed and 50 neighbors show up and cry crocodile tears. So many of our JC residents would feel at home. What are you waiting for?

I applaud her for speaking the truth. There are times when I wanted to make such statements to people loitering, littering, and generally behaving like pieces of crap. We see too much of it in Jersey City and enough is enough.

People are hating on her because she is an "interloper", yes god forbid someone highlight the problems plaguing one of the poorest neighborhoods in NJ instead of working some patronage mill position while Rome burns.

Re: Speed bump between 8th and 9th on Erie.

The on Erie before the school makes no sense.

This is continued pressure from the neighborhood to basically turn Erie into a parking lot.

Right now you have:

- Ridiculous bump
- Stop sign at Pavonia- with a one way going out and minimal pedestrian traffic
- Parents constantly doubled parked outside the school.

The whole people causing the problem get no tickets and people driving normally are shocked with stupidity.

The neighborhood associations are deferred to on everything just because they whine the loudest, while they just want no development, no cars, and some kind of granola utopia. No thanks.

Re: Area between Tunnel and Hoboken

I did end buying in that area...though closer to Hoboken, not by the projects.

The litigation against the developer at Zephyr is concluded.

700's garage should be done in the fall. Not sure if there are any assessments over there.

Marin is that area has not flooded in some time. Hoboken installed pumps.

I am very happy. Best of JC and Hoboken over there, IMO.

LOL I'm aware of the clientele at Wal Mart, but this couple is obviously not worried about that. I meant they can walk there for errands, which is convenient, much like many of us in DTJC walk to Target. For the record, I much prefer Target and I think the audience there is way different.

Re: OPEN JERSEY AVENUE TO LIBERTY STATE PARK!!

Actually, this is a pedestrian friendly move. Now there will be lights and traffic making walking from Grove to the LSP area a less risky proposition.

I don't understand how this move is bad for pedestrians at all. I think anything that makes driving less miserable is somehow anti pedestrian, because some people think drivers must be miserable for JC to have any progress.

If you want more mass transit options, how does this bridge hurt? Is the city working against mass transit in anyway?

If you want to help people walking, the city could start fining bikers who ride on the sidewalk...if everyone was fined we could probably build a new PATH station in a few years.

Even in DTJC and Hoboken there are plenty of "old timers". Even in affluent parts of Manhattan there are projects, including one directly across from Lincoln Center. It's a total exaggeration meant to draw sympathy to a fake problem. And even if we pretend it's real, yes let me shed a tear for people taking several hundred thousand dollars to the burbs, what will become of them? Perhaps a McMansion on a cul-de-sac? Won't someone stand up for those locked behind their white picket fences?

Re: JC in NY Times article on "Life After Brooklyn"
#73
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have little reason to venture outside of DT. Most my friends live in DTJC, Hoboken, NYC, or the Jersey burbs. I knew someone that lived in Society Hill and used to visit from time to time but I'm sure that is considered fake JC.

I don't really like Indian food much so I don't see a reason to go to JSQ.

I used to get my car serviced on 440 and really liked Jollibee. I also have been to the Marshall's, Old Navy and Applebees on 440.

I have walked around the Heights a little. I didn't really find anything too appealing to me.

I wouldn't really venture into BL or Greenville outside of my car. Ocean Ave or MLK are not safe places. They just aren't.

It is way easier than getting on the PATH to walk to the myriad of things in DTJC and Hoboken that I find useful.

This board is littered with posts of people who think anything that appeals to people under 35 with money is terrible and should be stopped at all costs. There is a fear of "Hobokenization" or "Brooklynization" which is a total crock as both have areas filled with old timers paying rents too low to be logical, eating at old timey places, etc.

Are people in live in Manhattan snobs or elitists or judgmental if they don't hang out on Staten Island or in the Bronx? Or are they just realistic about what is close and convenient?

I agree with 07310. I root for the rest of the city. It will help my property value and taxes.

To be fair to the lady, I read it as JSQ isn't as exciting as Hoboken, not all of JC (unless you're REALLY into Indian food, it's probably a fair thing to say). But you could read it as a diss to JC.

One thing I will say, after looking up where the building is, it's walking distance to the shopping center where Wal-Mart is. So if you're looking for convenience and suburbia, it's not a bad deal for this couple, versus non-DTJC. JSQ has the train, but you need to haul on PT or drive to get to anything besides Indian and Filippino and fast food or bodegas.

It's not car centric to point out that biking on the sidewalk is frequent, dangerous, and totally unaddressed.

Re: Trulia Crime Map

It looks they don't categorize the crimes. For example, the area around Grove St and Hoboken PATH are practically as red as Greenville- but probably for public drunkenness and arguments, not the violent crime you might see in other areas.

For example, I see in DTJC a lot "merchant/customer dispute" near Newark, Grove, the mall, and Target. Well big shocker. But it's not accurate to color that "high crime" IMO.

Something tells me that most people here have probably never seen a car drive down the length of a block on a sidewalk.

I have probably seen a bike do that 20 times in half a year.

Somewhat different.

And I also have also had a bell ringed at me for walking down the sidewalk, "in the way" of a bike.

Anyone here ever a horn honked at them as they walked down the sidewalk for getting in the way of a car?

The false equivalency is priceless.

The PA is an extremely corrupt agency. But I am for the adding of more stations in underdeveloped areas. It will just bring more yuppies and ratables which is a good thing.

Skipping stations though is stupid.

Re: EWR, it will save JC residents the NJT ticket and hassle. Wouldn't be my first priority either, but you'll probably see more tourists spending time in JC as a result.

When people were defending the rights of homeless people to menace the populace and get in their face, I said the area around the tunnel was bad for this. They beg on the approach from the extension and 1/9. They beg in parking lots at Burger King, Buy Rite and the gas stations.

If there a place that ordinance would have real teeth, it's the tunnel. People's first intro to JC should be a change filled cup.

Every excuse for you is "someone else did it". Perhaps you can represent Mr. Campbell and use the Terell Pryor defense "everybody murders". The fact is Christie was caught and whether anyone else signed off or abused the PA for funds in the past, it's illegal, and Christie did it more than once and to a much more serious extent than anyone else.

If you were actually a Jersey City resident, you'd have experienced it first hand. I can walk to the tunnel. There was never a jam. There was a PATH fare increase, signed off by the governor after he pretended not to know about and rerouted all the funds.

And the Sandy funding was completely and totally illegal. Please.

No- your taxes are high because as you admit, you pay your public employees high salaries.

Towns in NJ that don't have lower taxes. See Ocean County.

And you get what you pay for- but of course, when it comes to Republicans' own backyards (or unwarranted wars) it's always worth it to spend a lot of money. It's just other people that don't deserve anything.

Misdirecting Sandy funds is not an abuse of power?

Using the Rock's likeness without his permission is not an abuse of power?

Using the ARC funds to repair the Pulaski against federal law was not an abuse of power?

Assigning your baseball team's statician to a made up position at the PA was not an abuse of power?

Scheduling an election not for election day, costing the state 24M is not an abuse of power?

Obama was cleared of any involvement of directing the IRS to do anything MULTIPLE TIMES. And they also investigated liberal groups.

And LOL Zimmer's allegations are identical, they are well after the alleged actions took place and not substantiated by anyone else.

Keep grasping at straws. Christie will be indicted, Fulop will be governor.

Re: What Is the Total Property Tax Contribution of Liberty National?

Millburn's taxes are high because it pays its teachers and cops six figure salaries, and the value of property there is high.

It's interesting that Republicans are so interested in Abbott when it comes to Jersey City, but take no interest in red neck hellholes like Cumberland County or Phillipsburg which we here in JC subsidize.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that JC is 25% white and has a lot of gay people.

And funny how Republicans in the burbs never complain about every two bit town with 5 people having 10 cops making six figures, while our cops get paid pennies to get shot and attacked. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the police union and their support either.

And funny how Republicans in the burbs raised no concern when JC and Hoboken got less Sandy money than we should have, but suburban mayors who support the governor got it instead.

And funny how Republicans don't complain when Union City gets millions from the Port Authority despite bordering no water or state line.

It really is Jersey City and Newark that are the whole problem, I guess...LOL

"Pajama Boy"? That's a new one. Never heard that before. In any case, why would Fulop want to snarl traffic by the Holland Tunnel? Assuming his own constituents (i.e. Jersey City voters) are in the snarled traffic, wouldn't that just make them angry at Fulop? The Bridgegate scandal was pretty far fetched too, but at least it alleged a politician from a higher office trying to screw over a local politician he didn't like, which makes some sense in theory. Fulop would only be screwing himself over by snarling Holland Tunnel traffic.


He then did it to the truckers exiting a Port Authority leased facility . . . why not stop all trucks say, on 440, rather than leaving one specific location? Because it was directed at the Port Authority, that's why.

But again, no one has stated that Christie ordered the traffic jam.
The highest law enforcement officer in the city, the JC Police Chief has stated that Fulop ordered both the Port Authority traffic jams, and backed down on only one.


Right...so has David Wildstein changed his name to "no one"? Must have been all that embarrassment about the social studies teacher shaming.

And I'm sure the phone record showing a call from Christie to Cuomo when Pat Foye cried foul was just to talk football.

And please tell me Wildstein lacks credibility- because both he and Cowan were fired. The difference is that Wildstein was a Christie fanboy the entire time. Just like you, except he saw the light eventually.


I must have missed the part where Wildstein has stated that Christie had anything to do with the traffic jam, have I? Or produced an email, text, or note suggesting or approving such actions.

Unlike the JC Chief of freaking police who HAS stated that Fulop has ordered retaliatory Port Authority actions. Is there a difference? Of course there is.


Did you not read the 1M sham report we paid for?

?It will apparently be Wildstein?s contention ? as he alleged in early December 2013 to Drewniak ? that he mentioned the traffic issue to the governor on that occasion,? the report said, referring to the memorial ceremony, which was held at ground zero.

Yeah so I guess you believe a fired police chief over a fired BFF appointed to a fake position and 1M sham reported authored by your party's defense fund?


So Wildstein mentioned the traffic jam to the Governor-somehow you take this to mean the Governor knew that someone set it up as a political dirty trick in advance?

That's quite the looney left leap.

With over a quarter million emails, texts, phone messages being examined-and throw in the Governors personal email and phone, which he volunteered to hand over-not one single shred of evidence has emerged showing he had knowledge of the traffic jam until it took place. Nor has anyone said he did know about it, ordered it, or had anything to do with it.

It's a big contrast from an acting Chief of Police saying that Fulop ordered him to shut down the Holland Tunnel with phony 'safety' examinations, to punish the Port Authority.


You are delusional even for a Republican. So Christie knew about a shutdown, but did nothing to stop it despite knowing its illegalties is somehow superior to this baseless allegation?

Not to mention that Dawn Zimmer alleges Guadagno told her to push a development the gov wanted- but I guess a fired director is somehow more believable than her diary?

And I guess all the reports saying Fishman is going indict Kelly and Wildstein to get Christie is just politics? Perhaps it's MSNBC or Obama behind it?
