The City is confident that the park will open in May.
The HPNA Parkfest will take place on Saturday June 5, (rain date June 6).

The job has to be 100% completed which includes the grass being fully grown in before the park can open. From what I understand this is required under state bidding regulations/contract.

Does anyone have an update on when the park will be opening based on last night's meeting?


I didn't go last night, but I went to the one before. They said:
"99 percent sure it'll be open for the annual June Flea Market."

I second if anyone was there to post if there was an update (or not).

8:00 ? 8:20 Crime and Police Response in Hamilton Park

A disturbing incident took place on Pavonia Avenue between Coles and Monmouth where a witness observed a neighbor's car in the process of being stolen. She called the police and was refused help because it wasn't her car. She also alerted a uniformed officer stationed a block away who also refused help with the same excuse. The HPNA made a request for an investigation into the lack of response with the East District and after initial discussion, but we have not received a follow-up report. We have invited representatives from the East District to discuss this matter with the neighborhood but so far have not received a response regarding attendance. We will discuss appropriate next steps.


I can not believe something like this could happen. What a DISGRACE!!! These 2 officers should be fired for this. Keep the pressure on them HPNA, their excuse for not stopping a crime in progress is unacceptable and shocking to say the least! Expose them and have them terminated. Ban together HP residents and do all of Jersey City a favor and get these 2 officers removed from service. UNBELIEVEABLE

In May of 2007 the HPNA membership unanimously voted to oppose the NJTPA transit proposal to create an elevated exit ramp from the turnpike behind the Hamilton Park neighborhood. This "flyover" would curve behind the neighborhood (near Enos Jones/Brunswick park) and continue down 11th Street to connect in near the Newport Mall waterfront access road. We have learned that public state funding is being pursued for this project and we'd like a discussion of ideas for moving forward.

Michael is the author of "CLEAN: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing." Come hear ways of saving money and saving the planet by making your own homemade eco-friendly cleansers, or pose an ecoquestion to Michael. Have his book already? Bring your copy for a free book signing.

Michael is currently writing a companion series of "CLEAN" books dealing with such topics as the body, first aid, organization, and food, as well as posting a weekly blog on www.thedailygreen.com. "CLEAN: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing" can be purchased at Barnes & Noble stores across the country or online at www.amazon.com. Visit www.zencleansing.com for news about his books or check out his Mr. Green column at the Green Is Universal website: http://www.greenisuniversal.com/ask_mr_green.php

Michael De Jong lives in the Harsimus Cove neighborhood of Jersey City with his partner (Richard,) dog (Jack,) and three goldfish (Phil, Jill and Gill) all of which benefit from his natural cleaning techniques. De Jong, who cleaned apartments in New York City while working as a fine artist, began researching and inventing many of the recipes in "CLEAN" and is continually experimenting with safe, effective and eco-friendly alternatives. Raised in the mid-West by an immigrant family that valued the environment and re-cycled before it was fashionable, his quest for non-toxic solutions comes naturally to him.

Every Wednesday, 4pm to 8pm: Farmer's Market in Hamilton Park!

The Farmers Market returned to Hamilton Park this year ? bigger and better than ever! Welcomed back are our resident soap-maker Marco of Juvia Soaps and Hoboken Farms (www.hobokenfarms.com), bringing us fresh mozzarella, homemade bread, stuffed chicken, crabcakes, tilapia, and steak.

We have two new farmers this year ? Farmer Len from Upper Meadows Farm (www.uppermeadowsfarm.com) brings organic produce, flowers, honey, and fully organic pasture-raised meat. We also welcome Farmer Dale from Stony Hill Gardens and Farm (http://www.stonyhillgardens.com/SHFM.htm), who used to work the farmers market near the Pavonia PATH. Farmer Dale brings strawberries, greens, breads, veggies, and homemade pies.

Other new additions this year include Gulden Gourmet (http://guldengourmet.com/) with olives, pickles, and Turkish coffees, as well as Made With Love Organic Bakery (www.madewithloveorganics.com) with organic cookies, tea breads, and scones. We anticipate having occasional special addition vendors, so stop by each week and see what's available. If you or a vendor you know would like to join the market, email us at hpnajc@gmail.com.

Can't make it tonight, but could someone bring up the fact that we take our lives in hand everytime we cross Marin BLvd. by 9th -10th Street. Even if you are in the crosswalk, cars are zooming by at 60 mph.

I think we should put extra high speed bumps there!


I submitted a traffic sign request (for the 2nd time) to put a stop sign on Marin Blvd. and 9th St.
Speed bumps or a traffic light would also be good choices.

If more people submit similar requests, it might convince the government to finally do something about this intersection:
http://mycusthelp.com/JERSEYCITYNJ/_cs/RequestSelect.aspx





Any stop sign and/or traffic light must meet D.O.T. requirements before this can happen, this requires lengthy statistical data from both JCPD, the traffic /engineering dept. and an ordinance approved by council if we met the guidelines, it can take over a year for this process.

The D.O.T has very stick guidelines, (sometimes absurd i.e.: the Cole and Pavonia stop sign).

A good short-term solution is speaking with the east district commander and asks them to do radar enforcement. The speed limit is 25mph.

Have you called Councilman Fulop?


Thanks for the idea. I have just sent an e-mail to info@stevenfulop.com. I hope that e-mail reaches Steven Fulop.


I received this e-mail response to my traffic sign request:

"In reply to your request. A work order has been issued to conduct a traffic engineering survey at Marin Blvd. & 9th St. This survey consists of a 25 hour vehicle count, accident analysis, collision diagram and condition diagram. If the data collected at this intersection falls within the parameters mandated by the Department of Transportation for the installation of a traffic signal or an addition traffic control device the it will then be forwarded to them for their review and recommendation.

The Department of Transportation does not permit speed bumps on a public right away. However, an Investigator from this Division will inspect the intersection to insure that all traffic, parking and pavement signs are in place."


I received this update today:

"The traffic engineering survey has been completed for Marin Blvd & 9th St. The traffic engineering data collected indicates a traffic signal may be warranted. Therefore, the data has been forwarded to the Department of Transportation along with an "Authorization to Design". I will advise you of the DOT's recommendation".

I have to chime in and say that the Park Renovation has been YEARS in the making, and so long overdue, that the idea of putting off construction even one more day could jeopardize the whole project. Being inconvenienced for a few months is a very small price to pay. The renovation must be done in good weather, and the winter is not an option. We all must deal with the few months of inconvenience and not postpone at all for fear of a project stalled by ice and snow. We've all waited WAY too long for Hamilton Park to get its makover, and as long as the money is in place, don't allow the project to become stalled and the money disappear.....!

JCBiscuit, thanks for the nice words.

Trust me I'm totally with you on the timing issue. It still isn't out to bid yet so my thinking is let's get to that stage first, find out who will be doing the construction (it won't be the city, that's all we know) and then have a general community meeting where we can all discuss the construction timeline, concerns, etc. I can't promise that whoever wins the bid will engage all of us, but up to this point we've had great back-and-forth between the contractors/city/community so I don't see any reason that will cease.

Jen, thank you so much for all of your hard work bringing the park renovation into fruition.

One question: does construction / park closing have to happen over the summer? peak park season?

If the work is slated to be completed by end of December, why not push everything back a couple months and have it complete at the end of February / beginning of March, so that the neighborhood can have use of the old park for the summer?

Just a query. Thanks again for all of your time.
