Horgan said the ordinance was aimed directly at robbing his client’s property and “You are willing to do this because you’ve been told it’s a cheap way to confiscate my client’s property so that a few people in the most affluent ward of the city can have another park.

This is a pretty stupid argument, when you look at a map for where most of the city's park space is located.

Class-action suit waiting to happen.

I know someone whose car was totaled. I could imagine successfully arguing that the unmarked, oversize speed bumps were a hazardous situation create by the city.

You mean the damage to their car went undetected/undiagnosed, and they continued to operate it until the idiotwarning lights came on?  Good luck to them.

Yeah, who doesn't check their dipstick every mile or so?

I think CD rides around with his hand on his.

With so many stop signs put up, it is having an unintended consequence: everyone now things that everyone else has to stop, so folks are pulling in front of cars that don't have stop signs. :getoffmylawn:

Six years later, the development finally has a website: http://www.bonifacelofts.com


:rofl: Where did they steal this map from?

Why the 'quote marks' around the 'neighbors' description?

I think the subtext is that those folks don't even live in the area, they just hang out there.

Is this place any good for watching the American football matches? What's the crowd like?

Dunno. Maybe some aggrieved :soshin: can fill us in?

Bayonne man shot in buttocks in Jersey City: cops

By The Jersey Journal
on September 15, 2014 at 8:55 AM, updated September 15, 2014 at 8:56 AM

A 26-year-old Bayonne man was shot in the buttocks early yesterday morning at Wegman Parkway and Martin Luther King Drive in Jersey City, according to a police report.

The incident occurred around 1:50 a.m.

The man told officers he was walking west on Wegman Parkway and when he got to the Drive, he heard three shots fired behind him and felt a bullet enter his left buttock, the report says.

At Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health, doctors determined a bullet entered the man's left buttock but lodged in his right buttock, the police report says.

The man, who did not see who fired the shots, is in stable condition with a non-life threatening wound, the report says.

This is a pretty cool map from 1873 showing all the properties in JC, including owners' names.

See what happens when you go from single-family to micro-units? That block has never been the same!

Cordish has their headquarters in Baltimore's Pratt Street Power Plant.

So, expect the same sort of thing.

I will miss the old bridge, but damn it got pretty hairy on there sometimes, with trucks and cars crossing the midline.

Yep.

“The proposal for a megacasino at the Jersey City site” and a slot parlor in the Meadowlands, Mr. Lesniak said, “could produce in excess of a billion dollars over 10 years to be reinvested in Atlantic City.”[/color]

Atlantic City, the city that was supposed to be "saved" by the arrival of casino gambling, needs a bailout from the rest of the state. Casinos are closing up shop and leaving the city behind, and someone else gets to pay to keep the city on life support.

You wash your mouth out with soap, right now!  >:(

OK, but what about GMO Salmon? And them "mingling" with non-GMO salmon.

And this at the very least has to be labeled. It's one thing not to label the plants, (though I think that's bullshit, the more we know what's in our food the better.) but to not label animals... that just seems completely wrong and just straight up lobbying over consumer's right to information.

Are you saying you are against salmon miscegenation ?

Okay, Mr. Pedant. :P If I said that the salmon were guilty of racism, would you chime in that salmon don't have different races?

And then there is this.



I always stand. It is a six-minute trip for me, so not much of a problem. But those who are sitting should always glance around and simply just get up if they see someone who might need it more than they do, whatever the reason, no questions asked.

Always make sure you observe the PATH courtesy code.

Wow, that path looks like such a hell hole. I can't imagine wanting to cycle on it even if it were free of weeds and garbage.

At times, today’s orientation felt more like a church revival. McGreevey, who attempted to become an Episcopal priest after he resigned as governor in 2004, read a few Bible passages and asked the ex-offenders if they had sinned that morning.

And as the participants began to sign the contract that stipulates what is expected of them, the former governor said, “This is baptism time.”



That link looks familiar. . . .  ;D

Faith-based programs have an uncanny competitive edge in curing people of substance addiction. To me, that tells me something. Not so sure how welcoming it will be to non-Christians, though. Can you still get employment, housing, and addiction counseling without reference to Jesus?

Councilwoman at large Joyce Watterman (minister) and McGreevey (priest) are big on the Jesus guy:

Tom Kean and Nancy Pelosi are gonna be there.

Pretty sure if someone wanted to be a real pain in the ass, they could go all separation of church and state on their asses.
