  • 340 Second Street Jersey City, New Jersey - Downtown
    Last night this very same vehicle drove right over the delinator's, a middle age female with shoulder length dark hair walked out of J.C Eco Laundry and laughed uproariously at the driver, clapping and saying "Haha, good one!!"
    THIS is NO LONGER a simple "parking violation", this is a full blown business complaint. Thank you.
  • 172 1st St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to file a complaint or if this is the correct type of complaint to file, but O'haras Downtown Sport Bar & Grill is, by far, the worst thing to happen to this neighborhood in Jersey City.

    Every weekend on both Friday and Saturday night starting at around 2:00am, and sometimes earlier, up until around 4:00am, and sometimes later, the bar O'haras kicks everyone out. During that time, complete chaos ensues. Everyone starts screaming, arguing, smashing liquor bottles, driving drunk, and destroying property. Almost every weekend there are multiple fights and sometimes, but very rarely, the cops show up. However, the cops just move everyone along so they can clearly/obviously drive away drunk. Most of this happens on 1st Street between Marin Blvd and Provost street, right outside of the Oakmont and The Art House buildings.

    Every Sunday and Monday, there is smashed glass from liquor bottles all over the streets and sidewalks. My dog has sadly walked through the smashed glass multiple times, so I am now more cautious and spend my Sunday's and Monday's cleaning the streets and sidewalks. O'haras is 100% responsible for all of this and something needs to be done about it.

    One day, something very bad is going to happen outside of O'haras after it closes - if that hasn't happened already. I constantly fear for my fiance (who is a woman) when she has to walk past that bar late at night on weekend. The crowd is aggressive, angry, drunk, belligerent, and destructive. Also, I am extremely confident that cars, car windows, and/or other property will be destroyed on one of the more hectic nights. Something needs to be done about the noise, violence, damage to property, and all of the other terrible things that O'harras brings to this neighborhood before something really terrible happens.

    If there is a better way to report this type of issue, please let me know. Thank you.

  • 195-225 Grand Street Jersey City, New Jersey - Downtown

    Hello - I wanted to raise some ongoing concerns my family and I have regarding traffic issues at the intersection of Grand St. and Marin Blvd.

    Contstant accidents due to left turns when turning north onto Marin, and run ins with pedestrians when cars make a right turn on Red when turning west onto Grand, make this is easily one of the worst intersections in the downtown area.

    With additional residential buildings going up, the pedestrian traffic is only going to get worse very quickly. Can more specific traffic lights be put up for turning? Or No turn on red signs?

    Please feel free to contact me.
    Thank you.

  • 579 Jersey Avenue Jersey City, New Jersey - Downtown
    In front of the side driveway of 579 Jersey Avenue (located on 3rd Street @ Jersey Avenue), the owner has hand painted "no parking" on the public street.
  • 298 4th St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
    Sidewalk in desperate need of repair on the coles street side of 298 4th street. There is just loose dirt and rocks in two huge spots over 100 sq feet. There is even a massive and dangerous sink home with orange cones in it. Also digging work was recently completed and not properly repaired. Major safety hazard for walking, jogging, strollers and children. Please don't let this linger before repairing or forcing the owner of 298 4th street to repair.

  • 217 Newark Ave - Downtown
    Not sure how to describe this but in the photo you will see a ridiculous puddle of water in front of the Saffron building at 217 Newark Ave. This puddle simply has no where to drain and had remained there DAYS after the rain storm on September 3 and 4 had passed. It's gone now, however, the last time I saw it was Friday evening September 8. A neighbor in my building also said some of the other freshly repaved street corners are similar.
  • 193 Grand St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
  • 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.

  • 20 Erie St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
    Daylighting delineator dismounted. Needs replacing.
  • 485 Marin Boulevard - Downtown

    This part of marin boulevard was initially 2 lanes. The construction of 485 marin has ended up with 2 landscaped islands which appear out of nowhere.

    Meanwhile the road going north had a left turn lane which is now a part of the only single lane going south.

    At night this is an accident waiting to happen. Dod the construction company usurp public road with a landscaped island. You can see the original lane markings of the 2 original lanes.

  • 3 2nd St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - The Waterfront
    Another miserable weekend of Mack-Cali's Lutze Biergarten ignoring both the city's ordinances regarding appropriate sound levels and common decency. They are streaming another horrible ...and mean high school garage bad quality horrible band into my living and bedroom. Drums, bass, pounding into my HOME. My windows and doors are shut mind you. There is nothing else I can do to stem the sound. How in the world does this business get away with this weekend after weekend month after month? Where are my elected officials who are responsible for representing me and my neighbors and our rights? Where is the mayor? Where are the police who I have called multiple times? MR. MAYOR WHY AREN'T YOU AND THE CITY COUNCIL DOING YOUR JOBS?
