This. 100%

Towers around the world in Asia, London and Dubai are really artful and pushing architecture forward.

And don't get me started how that JC waterfront could have been planned so much better with a world class promenade. What a wasted opportunity facing the incredible NYC skyline.
i agree. not much forward thinking in jersey city; i guess jersey city just leaves that for manhattan and brooklyn

Interesting article. No doubt many more people may be working from home..but social distancing could mean that companies may not significantly reduce square footage since they may require more square foot/spacing between employees. It will be interesting

Then why pay WHO $450 million a year from the US? Of course the US should follow an international health organization. Perhaps there should be an investigation.

It is obvious some folks on JClist do not go to public meetings in various neighborhoods, it is not Yvonne, it is hundreds of people complaining about loss parking, especially bikes lanes at the expense of cars. There were hundreds of people at Hudson Catholic School including St. Peter's University, making the same complaint. Not to mention, the businesses that are hurt because shoppers go else. Really, how selfish are some comments. In fact the city should do a survey on the people of people that shop in Bayonne or other towns due to the loss of parking.


Thanks for proving my point. Parking, parking, parking but no concern on how parking impacts housing affordability.


Or transit. You could put BRT on a set of N-S JC roads and have a virtual subway, except for...parking. And I actually agree with part of Yvonne's position, more short term parking for local commerce. But what we should have is more and better metered parking in commercial districts the way Hoboken has. But that's a non-starter, since it would take away resident street parking. Even Key foods should have a row of 15 minute meters out front, If I want to drop in for eggs or zucchini on my way driving home from somewhere, I can't, since the daylighting of the corners there's not even illegal spots to use.


But, why advocate for metered, surface parking? Why not *underground* parking? It?s truly astounding that we have not embraced underground parking more widely in the US. Most cities seem to have embraced surface lots, or the incredibly inefficient/wasteful practice of dedicating the first few floors of buildings to be parking decks. If Jersey City pushed for subterranean lots, we could free up a ton of street space for other purposes (wider sidewalks, bike lanes, more retail and commercial space in buildings, more housing units per building, etc) while ensuring that the need for parking is satisfied.

All over Europe, cities of all sizes (including tiny ones) have embraced underground lots and it really is a game changer for improving walkability as well as aesthetics. Why not borrow from that idea and push for our city to do the same?

Imagine an underground lot under city hall; that would satisfy the parking needs for all of the Grove street businesses and restaurants, and the city could then reclaim all the space taken by metered spots to make room for more lanes, or to widen sidewalks. Or, if you want to think more boldly, you could make all of the Grove area into a car-free, pedestrian zone. The underground lot would allow for people to be close to where they need to go, which is the usual complaint, while allowing for efficient use of city surfaces.
i love the way many european cities handle parking by building massive underground lots. oftentimes, i'm not even aware that i'm standing on a massive underground lot until i see cars exiting or a parking sign. i doubt that would go far in the states where people are mostly concerned with free or cheap....the walmart approach to living.

Done all the time


Ballast Bypass (most energy efficient method) re-wire the light that the new LED tube runs on line voltage.

Ballast compatible: Just pop it in.

Memorial Sloan has been doing the ballast bypass method. They have been getting their bulbs from Tri State LED, which based on their performance tests, proved to be the most reliable.

We all know that spay and neuter services are essential to stabilizing animal populations and preventing more homeless pets. But too often cost prevents pet owners and cat caretakers from taking this life-saving step.

We are thrilled to continue to bring low-cost spay/neuter to the communities we serve, in memory of Chloe Fulop, the beloved dog who inspired the creation of this program.

The event is November 14th from 7:30pm-9:30pm in Harborside JC Atrium.

The sign sits in front of 350 Montgomery St., a silent reminder of an institution that thrived for more than 100 years, then ran into financial troubles and died a slow death.

?Jersey City Museum? says the sign in white letters, just below an official Jersey City logo. The sign belongs to the city. The museum, which closed in 2010 and reopened briefly in 2012, did not.
