  • 268 Varick Street Jersey City, New Jersey - Downtown

    I live a block away from the construction site in an old (pre-1900s) brownstone. The construction shakes the entire building and I can feel the vibrations last for seconds even after the work stops. I and some of the neighbors are worried that the old brownstones can’t take this level of construction vibrations and movements. The building I live in is “delicate” already without it. I think an evaluation of the effect on the surrounding buildings should be done before work continues.

    Not to mention the noise, which is extremely distracting during the day, not only to me, but I’m sure to the students in the school across the street from the construction site.

    The sidewalk is all broken up in pieces. I have seen people fall and trip many times. It has been this way for way to long.

    Bright St & Varick St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    I live a block away from the construction site at the corner of Bright and Varick. They started using what I assume is a pile driver this morning and I can feel powerful vibrations through the floor despite being a block away. I can only imagine what the houses that are in closer proximity are experiencing. Is there a way to monitor the vibrations to ensure that no buildings are damaged? When School #3 was being built, our walls sustained deep cracks that took a tremendous amount of time (and money) to repair. We don't want to go through that again.
  • 288–302 Grove St Jersey City 07302, United States - Downtown
    The sidewalk outside of 292 Grove Street has been an unsafe eyesore since October 2018. It is now February 2019, and nothing has changed. It becomes a muddy mess during the rain and snow. The sidewalk is uneven and unsafe. Not to mention this is at the footstep of my home and it is unsightly. Why has the sidewalk been allowed to stay in this state for at least 4 months now? And what is the large dirt pile for? I’d really appreciate some answers here. Thank you.

    Varick St & Bright St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    I am a block away from the construction on Bright and Varick Street and feel the vibrations intensely on the 4th floor. I am concerned about the integrity of the buildings in the area as well as the loud disruption to the children in school across the street. The level of noise and the vibrations are not conducive to the environment children need to learn.

    JCPA: Unacceptable behavior
  • 38 Wayne St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
    This portion of sidewalk constantly fills with water, ice and trash. It is been like this for years.
  • Address Unavailable - Downtown
    I almost had three heart attacks watching cars go through the stop signs here at full speed. deathly afraid. I don't know what do do or if there is anything you can, but it is crazy. Recording a video of it and it is unbelievable.
  • 362-374 Monmouth St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    The intersection at Christopher Colombus and Monmouth is VERY dangerous because at the light on Monmouth there are two car lanes one for going straight and one for right turns only. When the light turns green more often than not cars that are in the right turn only lane try to go straight causing a dangerous and unexpected merging situation. I see near collisions every morning.
  • 239 Barrow Street Jersey City, New Jersey - Downtown
    A stop sign was added on Barrow St at Bright not sure how long ago now at this point but many drivers have not realized it was added and still go through that intersection without stopping (I just watched 5 cars do it this morning in a 30 min period!) which has lead to several near accidents and driver arguments. There is only a single stop sign (on the left side of the street). Can we get one or more of the following added at this intersection to prevent an accident from occurring:
    - Additional Stop sign on right side of street (like many other intersections in JC)
    - Paint the word stop on the road of Barrow (similar to other intersections)
    - Flashing Stop sign at the intersection so drivers notices

    Varick St & Bright St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Pile driving at the construction site on the corner of Bright and Varick (right across from MS3 and MS4. The pile driving is creating thunderous noise and horrible vibration in the entire neighborhood. How are students supposed to learn with this noise?
