Home away from home


This marks the first location for the market outside of New York and L.A.

By Rachel Chang
May 12, 2021

Smorgasburg, the country's biggest weekly open-air food market, started in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood in 2011, and now, it's celebrating its 10th anniversary in a big way — by heading across the Hudson River to Jersey City.

The popular foodie destination will make its New Jersey debut on Saturday, May 29, at 195 Hudson Street in a space that's currently a 40,000-square-foot parking lot owned by Mack-Cali, just a block from the waterfront with sprawling views of downtown Manhattan. The market will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday through at least October.

Jersey City reimbursed two city council members for thousands of dollars in tuition for higher education courses, drawing criticism from a local good government group who say the expenses were an improper use of public money to further elected officials’ private careers.

Jersey City Council President Joyce Watterman and Ward B Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey together received a total of $8,924 in publicly funded reimbursement for classes they attended, according to documents obtained by local government accountability group Civic JC through an open public records request.

Jersey City to Invest $21M with Major Energy Infrastructure Improvements, Solidifying Jersey City’s Position as a Regional Sustainability & Resiliency Leader    

Jersey City to Invest $21M with Major Energy Infrastructure Improvements, Solidifying Jersey City’s Position as a Regional Sustainability & Resiliency Leader

 

Plans to Improve Community’s Overall Health; Construction of 1st Microgrid to Ensure Continuity of Critical Operations During any Emergencies

 

JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven M. Fulop announced today a new partnership with Schneider Electric to implement Jersey City’s first Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP) to reduce operational costs, improve energy resiliency, and leverage energy savings to minimize cost on urgent capital infrastructure projects. The resolutions will go before the City Council on March 23rd to move forward on this revolutionary program which will achieve ambitious sustainability goals by maximizing funding from outside sources, such as utility rebates and incentives.  The plan saves taxpayers $21 million in energy and operational costs over 20 years while funding over $19 million in urgent capital needs.

Under the ESIP, Jersey City will also become the first in the country to create a self-sustainable municipal microgrid utilizing the 1.23 MW solar panel array installed at DPW last year to ensure continuity of vital service operations utilizing the municipal electric vehicle (EV) fleet operations, specifically EV garbage trucks. As the first on the entire East Coast to have EV garbage trucks in our municipal fleet, the microgrid takes the City’s efforts a significant step further by proactively preparing to provide power so that operations can continue through any type of power outages and emergencies with a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Plans revealed for 13-acre tech and medicine hub with 1,500+ apartments in Jersey City

Posted On Tue, April 20, 2021 By

In recent years, the downtown Jersey City skyline has expanded in ways no one could have imagined 20 years ago. And a new mega-development is planned for an area previously untouched, just west of Liberty State Park and the Liberty Landing Marina. Known as The Cove JC, the 13-acre, mixed-use project is envisioned as a global hub for life science, tech, and medicine. It will be comprised of 1.4 million square feet of lab/tech office space and 1.6 million square feet of residences, along with a waterfront park.

Jersey City Makes Top 5 Most Expensive Places to Rent in the US
#15
Home away from home
Home away from home


The general rule to remember when renting is that you pay for location. If a place is highly populated due to its atmosphere and nearby attractions, demand for it is going to be high. When something is in high demand, the price to live there increases, and Jersey City is no exception. Which is why Howmuch.net has recently named Jersey City among the top five most expensive places to rent an apartment in the country.

Ask anyone what they love about Jersey City and they’ll rattle off a list that seems never-ending. Bars, restaurants, and the stunning views will definitely be included. It is home to some of New Jersey’s most notable places and busiest attractions that add to its exciting ambiance. With every turn, Jersey City’s bright lights lead you to a new adventure. What isn’t so fun is how much it costs to live there. Let’s talk about what led Jersey City to rank as the fifth most expensive city in the country to rent.

Jersey City’s mayor has had enough of being verified on Twitter

The mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, has made the unusual request to have his Twitter verification removed. In a tweet posted this morning, Fulop said he wanted his account to return to its unverified status. “I kind of took pride in that,” he said, “it reinforced I shouldn’t take myself too seriously and just work hard in my job.”

On the face of it, Fulop’s request makes little sense. Twitter verification ostensibly just proves that he is who he says he is, and prevents other accounts from trying to imitate him. But that little blue tick (which, yes, is technically white if you want to get pedantic about it) signifies so much more than that. Whatever Twitter’s intentions, it implies you’re important, that you’re famous, or — most controversially — that Twitter has given you its tacit approval.

Lawsuit filed by ex-cop who once played a dominatrix has no merit, lawyers say

JERSEY CITY — A whistleblower lawsuit filed by a Hudson County sheriff’s officer fired last year because she played a dominatrix in adult films should be thrown out, lawyers for the county are telling a judge.

The ex-officer, Kristin Hyman, 32, claims the county’s investigation into her past was retaliation for her allegations that she had been sexually harassed by a sergeant, but she cannot prove that link, the county’s lawyers say in the May 10 legal filing.

Hundreds protest budget cuts, planned teacher layoffs at Jersey City schools

JERSEY CITY — More than 300 parents, teachers and students crowded inside School 26 on Monday night to demand Jersey City school board members find a way to avoid massive cuts to school staffing and educational programs.

The board was meeting to adopt its $638 million budget for 2019-20 at a time when the 30,000-student district faced a budget gap that exceeds $100 million and a cut in state school aid that totals roughly $30 million. The district in recent weeks sent out hundreds of layoff warnings to teachers and staff — during Teacher Appreciation Week — panicking district employees and parents.

Standing up against climate change

It was a standing room crowd at City Hall in Jersey City last week. More than 200 people packed the council chambers on Wednesday, April 17. They were concerned. They came to learn about and stand up against climate change. By the end of the evening, they were ready to take action.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla opened the event by commenting on some of the innovative programs being implemented in their cities. This was followed by a panel that included a climate scientist talking about efforts to mitigate sea level rise, an urban environmentalist discussing the disproportionate impact of pollution and climate change on poor and minority communities, a youth activist looking at the impact of climate change on her generation and a leading environmental activist challenging the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to live up to its obligations.

Councilman calls for reform of Jersey City’s ‘broken’ rent control system

JERSEY CITY — Residents in Jersey City’s Downtown are losing out on affordable housing because the city’s rent control system is broken, according to a new report from the area’s councilman.

Landlords disregard rent control limits, tenants don't know they live in rent-controlled apartments and a loophole in local law allows developers to build luxury units where affordable housing once stood, Councilman James Solomon's report says.

Developer chosen to build hotel near Liberty State Park on land it does not yet own

Will a neighborhood on the outskirts of Liberty State Park become home to Jersey City’s next hotel?

That could be the case after the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency gave final approval to Landmark Developers to build the Morris Hotel on land currently owned by NJ Transit near Liberty State Park.

Landmark President Frank Cretella said Monday that his company has had talks with NJ Transit and Gov. Phil Murphy’s office aimed at acquiring the land at the foot of Communipaw Avenue for the 120-room hotel.

Reports of Menendez, Fulop friendship hugely untrue

Local reporter also gets Pascrell primary story wrong

By David Wildstein, April 26 2019 5:37 pm

A Hudson Reporter story that U.S. Senator Bob Menendez and Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop have “buried the hatchet” is not true, four Hudson County Democratic insiders told the New Jersey Globe, which sought to independently verify the report.

Al Sullivan’s version, attributed to “knowledgeable sources,” says that “while the two men will not likely ever become close friends, sources say that Fulop’s popularity in Jersey City is just too great an obstacle to maintain a political feud.”

“This shows just how much being the mayor of the soon-to-be most populated city in the state can help,” Sullivan wrote.

Any chance of Menendez forgiving Fulop ended when the mayor sat on his hands during the 2018 U.S. Senate race.   Fulop might want peace, but Globe sources suggest that Menendez has no interest.

Jersey City school board member alleges shenanigans regarding new teacher contract

JERSEY CITY — The proposed new contract for Jersey City’s public school teachers has led to dramatic allegations from a school board member who said he was purposely left out of the negotiations over the new deal.

Matt Schapiro, who has a hostile relationship with local teachers union officials, is accusing the board of acting illegally and unethically by approving the terms of the new contract even though most board members have conflicts that Schapiro said should have barred them from reviewing the deal, which teachers ratified on Tuesday.
