    This eye sore is two houses away from Apple Tree House. The place is a disgusting mess and most likely a health hazard. Can we get owner to clean it up or better yet have it razed? Thanks

    Hello, ok so I am an unemployed person looking for work So I was using the indeed app To find new jobs. I stumbled across a maintenance job paying 17 an hour so I applied. A day later I get a call saying I should come in for an interview with my social security and 100 dollar money order because they said I need an OSHA-10 certificate. I said ok and went, when i went there he said there is a maintenance position and that I need to take the osha 10 class, on top of the 100 dollars he said there is a remaining fee of 199 so all in all 300$. I went to the class which looked fishy and about 20 people were there and everyone started doubting the process. After the 10 hour course I was referred to a so called maintenance job and when I arrived they said there was no maintenance job and the agency is a scam giving out fake certificates and they didn’t even give anyone an osha card!!! I feel so bad that they stole 300$ from and just imagine how much they are stealing from people. They are definitely scamming people into taking this class for a made up job with high pay 17 and up. I urge you to take charge because they are stealing people’s money using fake promises and fake certificates. They aren’t located 291 academy st jersey city.

    The crossing guard stationed on Bergen ave and Academy Street has been making inappropriate comments and advances towards young women. We have noticed this early on since we moved into an apartment nearby Vroom Street near Journal Square April 1st, 2019.

    He is often Cat-calling or saying "Looking good girl," neither of which I feel appropriate coming from a public representative of our city, but his comment last week was much too far:

    My wife was out for a run and he made a comment along the lines of "looking good girl." When she again ran past him on her return he said, and I quote "Girl, you still exercising? You should come back to my place I'll show you what real exercise is."

    I've inserted his photo below - his badge number appears to be 53.

    This is 2019 - his comments are demeaning and highly chauvinistic. Time is up for this kind of behavior. I would like to request he be reprimanded, and if he remains on the city staff, relocated.

    Yield to pedestrian signage relocation request. This sign is not visible to speeding cars west bound on Academy St. and Tuers intersection. This single yield sign is blocked by a utility pole. See attached photo and look at red drawn circle on the right. The lights visible in said circle are part of the sign but the sign itself is hidden.

    I have also circled the illegally removed yield to pedestrian sign on the left hand side of the photo, on the sidewalk of the new construction at that same intersection.

    The only visible yield signage is much further near Bergen Ave, a little too late for speeding cars driving Summit to Tuers.

    Thank you for escalating this critical issue.

    The intersection of Bergen Avenue and Academy Street is a busy intersection with high levels of traffic, particularly pedestrians. Although the new dedicated left turn lanes have helped, as a motorist, it is difficult to make left turns from Bergen onto Academy, or right turns from Academy onto Bergen, due to the high volume of pedestrian crossings. However, as a pedestrian, it is an important crossing in a central area approaching a heavily utilized commercial corridor, and the safe crossing of pedestrians should be promoted and maintained.
