93 Grand St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - The WaterfrontSince the new bike lanes went in on Grand serious back ups have been accruing in the morning on school days as busses block the east bound lane as they wait to take kids to preschool. In the past there was enough space for east and west bound to negotiate the blocked lane, but with the addition of the bike lanes the space needed to safely go around the busses has disappeared. This has not only caused great frustration, and excessive horn honking, but more importantly it has caused unsafe conditions for our children. When East bound cars see a rare opportunity to go around the busses by incurring into the west bound lane they tend to do so half-hazardly and with too much speed. Could someone please look into this for the safety of our children. By simply extending the spaces allotted to fit 5 school busses, instead of the current 2, between the hours of 7:30-8:30 this problem can be solved. Or at least send a traffic officer on these mornings. Please do what you can, I'd hate to see an child injured due to inaction.
99 Hudson St Jersey City, NJ, 07311, USA - The WaterfrontAccording this this NY.C. resident, there's a "Light Beaming" from this property in Jersey City that enters his apartment at 10 Westside Plaza, in N.Y.C., NY. he claims that this very bright beaming light is on the top of one of the towers built at the corner of Hudson & York St.
He said, the light was supposedly placed on the top of the building approximately 1 month ago. I believe this bright light is for aviation. It on top of a very tall, towering building.

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 festival/street fair is way too loud and it has lasted for over 9 hours, which is ridiculous.
Most of the buildings around this event is residential and I live on 20th floor of the building next to the event. I have been having constant headache today, despite having closed all my windows and curtains.
Based on the Noise Control Act, the established sound level standards of 50 decibels during nighttime (10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.) and 65 decibels during daytime. Currently it is 9:15pm, the noise is well over 65 decibels - see image attached for a decibel meter, and it has been like this for HOURS!
236 Grove Street Jersey City, NJ - Downtown
Ever since moving here, when I was 5 months pregnant, I have been petrified of the crosswalk at the intersection of Grand Street and Grove Street. Since having my son, my fears of crossing Grand street to get to the shops/restaurants along Grove has grown. On multiple occasions, I have almost been struck by vehicles making a right at the Green Light (while the crosswalk is simultaneously lit). Once, when my baby was a few weeks old, and a few other times over the last 9 months.
I have also seen other pedestrians JUMP out of the way of oncoming cars. I believe this is due not solely to the carelessness of drivers but because if is extremely difficult to see the crosswalk as it is set off to the side, in the blind spot of oncoming cars.
I am worried this will only be addressed AFTER a mother/stroller is involved in an accident and would love to help prevent this from happening.
How can we get a new sign implemented at the light so the crosswalk is made more visible to traffic?
259 4th St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - DowntownThe scaffolding on Jersey ave and 4th street is very unsafe and has garbage all around. Furthermore the sidewalk is unsafe to navigate around the poles and broken sidewalk. Can't something better be done??? Can you forward this to mayor and city council members??
384 2nd St Jersey City, New Jersey - DowntownWe have daily groups of teenagers from Ferris H.S. spending their lunch hour on our stoop — private property. They do not have our permission to be there. They litter, make noise and are rather mean if we ask them to move and/or clean up after themselves. Calls to the school have gone nowhere — all they do is tell us to call the police. Can the city help in some other way, or offer concrete suggestions? We don’t want to ruin these kids’ lives; we just want them to stop using private property as their cafeteria and trash dump — and to stop throwing nasty words and glares our way when we assert our rights as property owners. We also want the school to address this domehow, as they’re letting the students out for lunch as a privilege. Thanks for your help.
