I go 5 mph on that street and flip a bird at those who honk at me.

I don't want to lose a wheel.

This is just another example that idiots are running this state (and this country, for that matter)

They have ugly wooden poles everywhere in NJ and tiny solar panel attached to them.

I mean this whole scheme would be funny if it was not for $500 million wasted.

The inmates are in charge of the asylum, for sure.

A mess indeed.

And to think that our so-called "elected officials" shoved this monstrosity down our throats, with absolutely no public consultations.

Friends of LSP protested, sued, and lost.

Just another rape commited by our New Jersey overlords.

Turnpike cutting down trees at Exit 14B

Turnpike has been cutting down beautiful, healthy, mature trees just before Exit 14B on the eastbound side.

Does anyone know what the heck is up with that?

Is this in preparation for making exit 14B the main exit for Bayonne-bound trucks?

Believe it or not, one of the first things that attracted me to Jersey City was the sound of the trains, and it wasn't the whistles, it was the sound of the wheels squealing around those old curved freight tracks under the Turnpike Extension.

I visited a friend about 16 years ago when she lived on Eighth Street near the back of HamPk (a couple of blocks from those tracks), and it was summer, so she had all her windows open. The "squealing" sometimes sounds more melodic and drawn-out, like whale song, and it did that night.

A couple of years later, I moved into the same apartment building where she had lived before.

I still like to hear the trains singing.

I can even hear the PATH's gentle lowing once and a while, from about eight blocks away, but it's usually on a very quiet night, and usually it's on a cold night.


Very cool, elsquid. I hear the squealing of the train cars too. Even cooler are the horns of the ships in the fog at night. They blow them like crazy when the visibility is 100 feet...

Yeah nobody liked good old JC. I on the other hand was always a proponent of JC even in her darkest days. (JC love it or leave it! Sadly most of my close friends did..leave it) But I will confess this sin to you all. Living in JC in the late 70?s early 80?s was not cool to some especially the chicks. Do you know what it was like to finally get a nibble in the summertime down at the Guido infested Jersey Shore only to lose the precious catch? When I opened my mouth and said I was from Jersey City in my best JC accent I lost the catch hook, line, and sinker. Devastating! (you burb girls err I mean your mother?s were cruel back then)

When I changed my address to Chatham or Basking Ridge I was fine. (thank God it wasn?t my looks after all!!) Although do you know how hard it is to try and cover up a JC guy saying beer? I almost got busted a few times. ? I?ll have two beeeeeeer?s please?. I never asked for a second date for a Saturday it always had to be on a Sunday I was too afraid my Satday would slip out. ?Hey how about we go out again on Satday night? ..ahhhhhh.


Haha, neverleft, I always enjoyed saying "I live in Jersey City" to New Yorkers and observing their facial expressions. In the early 80s their expressions were like - "You must be effin nuts". In the nineties they were "OK, whatever". In the 2000's they were - "Oh, interesting". In the 2010s when they ask me where I live I say "None of your Effin Business" (just kidding). Yeah, saying "I live in Jersey City" to a chick is a tough go. Heck, saying "I live in New Jersey" to a chick is tough. I did it in California once and the chick burst out laughing in my face. Can't say I blame her...

Great insights from Ian in this thread.

I would say that while JC waterfront is far from ideal, it is not entirely terrible.

The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway helps.

I can bike from Port Liberte to darn near Edgewater and not be too far from the Hudson River at any time.

And the ride in LSP is nice. The Rape Bridge is a low point, of course, but the ride gets nicer by Goldman Sachs and the Hyatt, all the way to the pedestrian bridge to Hoboken.

Not terrible at all.

The cabbies are probably figuring that black people will ask to be driven to the hood (aka "the rough part of town", as the media euphemistically call it, or a "ghetto" if you want to be more direct), where a cabbie is more likely to be held up.

Some serial killers are obsessed with "purity".

They think prostitutes are "impure", so they kill them to "purify" the twisted world they inhabit.

I hope the cops have a beat on this guy and he will be caught soon, now that the bodies have been found and his mocking cell phone calls to the families of the victims have been examined.

Very sad.

Chlorine gas rail cars also go to Bayonne chemical plants that use chlorine, right through Jersey City.

Bayonne has been been dubbed "the most dangerous mile in America" due to chlorine gas use.

What an awful story. Likely, Settle is not locked up anymore. He was convicted and sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. I found this excerpt:

March 5, 1995
A man was convicted Friday of throwing a bowling ball off an overpass and through a windshield, killing an 8-month-old girl. Calvin Settle, 19, was found guilty of manslaughter and could get up to 10 years in prison at his sentencing April 7. Settle contends the ball fell out of his hands, but two younger boys who were with Settle at the time of the accident say they saw him heave the ball off onto the roadway deliberately.


They put steel netting after this incident over the covered roadway. Plenty of garbage is now resting on it.

Sounds like our illustrious State of New Jersey has some conflicting laws.

How can a person of age of consent be also considered a child?

A child cannot give consent, right?

My guess is that the opportunistic lowlife will walk, and he will successfully sue JCPD for lost wages and damages.

I wish New Jersey had death penalty. This dude would be a perfect candidate, if convicted. But instead, he will rule in prison, get favors from other inmates, and get to live his depraved life.

Meanwhile, his victims are dead and their loved ones have been devastated forever.

Doesn't seem fair, does it?

Whatever that means... ::shrug::


They were the low-cost bidder because they chose the land route - putting their profits ahead of your safety. It really is that simple.


Bingo.

And if the Feds (FERC) allow it, they will put their consulting opportunities with the gas industry ahead of our safety, too.

And then we will see if the courts in this country are really impartial...

When it comes to litigation I will donate to NoGasPipeline and I urge others to do likewise.

Hate to admit it, but they are right if you think about.

In NYC folks with money take cabs (they would not be caught dead in the subway with the unwashed masses).

And Goldman's JC employees have been PO-d about having to take PATH for the longest time.

So Goldman made a good move - a luxurious private ferry to placate the grumbling employees.

mercyme - all the mocking here should make you realize that perhaps you made a wrong choice renting (thank God not buying!!!) in Jersey City.

If you thought that Paulus Hook is like a gated or a suburban community where crime is rare or non-existent - it isn't.

People!

The Feds are in the pocket of Spectra because they want to get jobs with Spectra after they "retire" from their Fed jobs with generous pensions (see Wisconsin)

You (NJ and federal taxpayers) are being played, big time.

Our only chance is with the courts, and I am not so sure anymore that they are independent, either.

Expect to get screwed, and anything better than that is an unexpected gravy.

I have no use for cable TV and their extortionist pricing.

I get free OTA HD channels with an indoor antenna, and if I really need to see a particular show (which is infrequent) I will download it.

I get $29.99/mo Verizon DSL internet and am quite happy.

YMMV.
