  • John F Kennedy Blvd & Journal Sq Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square

    As a result of the construction start on the Kushner towers on the east side of Bergen Ave. & JFK Boulevard at Journal Square, pedestrians have been pushed off the sidewalk into a narrow 5-ft. path. Complaints to Hudson County resulted in widening the path between the north crosswalk and the PATH station and setting back the construction fence at the two crosswalks.

    This is being posted on both the Hudson County and Jersey City SeeClickFix websites because both have jurisdiction over the pedestrian walkway. Jersey City is responsible for the south crosswalk and Bergen Ave. Hudson County is responsible for the north crosswalk and JFK Boulevard.

    The flimsy 6-ft. plastic barriers installed along the east side of the intersection will never stop an errant car traveling at 40MPH. There are (20) 6-ft. barriers spanning from south of the south crosswalk to north of the north crosswalk. This is where pedestrians are most vulnerable to errant cars turning left to proceed northbound on JFK Boulevard and where they have the least protection.

    NONE of the plastic barriers are completely filled with water. 10 are maybe 2/3 full and the other 10 are empty. These barriers are supposed to be interlocked and pinned together through the holes in the ends. I counted a total of 6 pins.

    Most of the empty 6-ft. barriers can be moved out of place by shoving them sideways. This will not protect pedestrians from an errant vehicle. ALL of these flimsy barriers should be replaced by NJ concrete barriers.

    On the east side of the intersection, the north and south crosswalks are 12’ wide. The distance between them is 80’. At the north side of the north crosswalk, the south 6-ft. plastic barrier blocks 3’6” of the crosswalk. At the south side of the south crosswalk, the north 6-ft. plastic barrier blocks 9” of the crosswalk.

    The Kushner contractor only used 20-ft. NJ concrete barriers. 10-ft. and 12-ft NJ barriers are readily available. The contractor must be compelled to install NJ concrete barriers along the entire length of the pedestrian walkway without restricting the width of the crosswalks.

  • 64 Glenwood Ave Jersey City, NJ 07306, USA - McGinley Square
    What's the point of this website? I live in an apartment building at 64 Glenwood Avenue in Jersey City and reported an issue about a vehicle parking daily and blocking the fire exit. The first time I reported the issue, it was referred to the parking authority who stated they could not assist me, I posted that fact on the website and nothing was done. Then I proceeded to report the issue again and was advised to call the police when the car parked there, I reported that I had already attempted this approach but the cars rarely come and when they come they fail to issue a ticket. I assumed the city would contact the police department and since then I have called the cops on 12 different days and not a single ticket has been issued. Why have a site to acknowledge a problem, not fix it, and just waste people's time? Acknowledgement is not a solution. I do not know how to proceed, I am extremely frustrated.
  • 281 St Pauls Ave Jersey City 07306, United States - Journal Square
    Flower pot in middle of street / intersections of skillman and Liberty? Did anyone review how much traffic this will cause considering 1&9, Pulaski, circle, 139, etc?
  • 827-839 Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square

    This business - 831 Newark - uses the sidewalk as an extension of their grocery store. The sidewalk is blocked daily / all day with pallets for unloading and boxes of open food for sale.

    On many days there is virtually no sidewalk left for walking.

    Thank you

  • Pavonia Ave & Tonnele Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square
    I would like to request a stop sign and crossing guard at the intersection of Pavonia Ave. and Tonnelle in Journal Square. This crosswalk is utilized every day by parents, children and commuters and there is currently no stop sign. There is a school and daycare on the next block over. I cross the street with my child every day and no one ever stops. Sometimes I'll be in the middle of the intersection and the car will speed up to make sure they get across the intersection before I can block their way. This is extremely dangerous and several other parents and commuters have the same concern. I demand a stop sign and also a crossing guard M-F. Simply having pedestrian cross signage is not enough. This is a busy intersection and drivers will not stop for you. Even JC Police cars won't stop for me.
  • 137 Cottage St Jersey City, NJ 07306, USA - Journal Square
    illegal fence was put up at the end of cottage st. owner thinks because he purchased both houses on both sides of the street he can claim the street as his too. by doing this he blocked the fire hydrant from having access which is extremely dangerous in an emergency. please have the fence removed. streets and fire hydrant are city property not homeowners. he has no right to do this. I live on this block and I now, no longer feel safe if an emergency was to happen.
  • 921 Bergen Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square
    See additional pics. The owners of the Capital One building have a major tripping hazard which their scaffolding has exasperated: they fail to maintain the tree wells on their property and the dirt is approximately 2 inches lower than sidewalk level which is a tripping hazard.
  • 96 Tuers Ave Jersey City NJ 07306, United States - Journal Square
    On a regular basis at the construction site at 96 Tuers Avenue, they regularly block the street with deliveries early in the morning when residence and children are trying to get to school. This happens anywhere from 3 to 5 times a week. It's a constant battle and disruption for the community.
