Re: School room location needed for short film project

you would need to fill out a Building Use Form--not sure what department to go through, but call a local school and they can direct you. There may be a cost to open the school--to pay for custodian overtime or security if they require it.

Dan, how are you linking this decision to the corruption scandal?

I would hate to see County Prep leave JC, but I would be excited to be a student attending a brand new campus. The HCST already has significant interest from potential buyers of the 2 buildings, so that will help offset some of the new construction cost.

so we are having work done to the siding of our house and need to get in this guy's backyard to do the work. we sent him a note a few weeks before the work started--tried knocking on his door multiple times, but he never answered. when the construction guys were in his yard he started giving lewd gestures, then started screaming that they have no right to be in his yard without his authority. does anyone have any experience with working with unreasonable neighbors? If so, does the city/police help settle it?

people are still parked on jersey @ 2nd in the red zone. Should I call the police non-emergency to ask to enforce?

the corner of jersey & 2nd has been painted red on the east side of jersey. hopefully will keep cars from blocking the view of people crossing jersey--have seen tons of accidents there because of obstructed views.

Re: Trained Dog Attacking on 1st and Erie

Saw this guy on Newark & Erie while I was walking my dog last night around 8pm. Dog was off leash but very well behaved. Said hello to the guy because I used to see him at Hamilton Park a lot, especially when the dog was a puppy. He just looked at me, but not surprised because he was never interested in talking with me--only women. Very surprised about the incident, though. Just to be sure--he is NOT the dog walker that walks all the huskies around Hamilton.

Re: Council moves to defer $14.8 million in pension payments

Yvonne is either being really unclear or spreading half-truths. The benefit for PILOTS is that they city gets more tax money. Once the residents move in, they pay their property taxes to the city as do all other property owners. I bought a condo that has a 5 year abatement. I wish I didn't have to pay the $7000 a year, but I do.

I'm also glad that Fulop voted against the deferral.

I lived in this building for nearly 3 years. Unreliable heat and a shady absentee landlord who wasn't interested in fixing anything--he actually screamed at me on the phone for reporting the lack of heat (after 3 days of freezing temperatures) to the city. Hope it works out better for this couple!

Re: Where are all the BJ shopping carts coming from?

I see this guy in a white van on my block today (2nd & Jersey) who looked like he was picking up stray carts. Had a few in his van and was pushing a BJ cart toward it. When I came back 1/2 hour later, the red plastic part of the cart was on the sidewalk and he appartently just took the metal part to scrap...

the London trip was just plain wrong.

the naming the building after himself--he doesn't do that--blame the Board members for that--they just named another new school after a current board member (was former superintendent)--but is still alive. but I guess he could have objected to it...

I look at it as Jersey City getting a bargain compared to neighboring towns who pay their supers comparably for much smaller districts. He gets a 3% payraise in year 2--most executives would be offended by such a small increase. Like him or not--test results have increased with him at the helm and if you spend any time in any JC Public school you will see some great things going on--they are not all as scary as the journal would make you think.

What are you talking about? I'm usually in the run 2-3 times a day and have yet to smell urine at all--I've asked others too. I've seen some people not clean up poop, but haven't smelled the urine.

don't be so quick to paint all jersey city teachers with the same brush. some of us bust our butts day in day out and work in pretty bad conditions (no heat, a/c or fans in 100 degree weather short supplies, lack of professional considerations). i teach at a very good public school in a magnet program (so most of the parents are pretty involved)--and I work with a lot of veteran teachers (some have 30+ years experience) and get there before me and leave after me--and grade papers at night and on the weekends. sure there is a lot of dead weight all over the district, but there's also a lot of teachers doing a lot with a little. if you've never taught you don't know what its like--sure we get summers off as well as other breaks, but i consider them well deserved for a tough job--just my 2 cents.

Jersey Journal 8/16/06:

"Just because we get 50 yuppies that send e-mails about saving the trees doesn't mean that we shouldn't consider it," [Councilman]Gaughan said. "Most people who want carports don't even have e-mail."


Is this guy for real?

Do they somehow believe that those with less skills and education only deserve to live in dangerous, run-down slums?


yeah, classism is the better term. and i agree with your point here. maybe i'll feel different when one of the thugs living there muggs me. love when people complain about this crap, but don't take any steps to help fix it.
