The heights

Notified About

  • Congress St & Palisade Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights
    There's an enormous depression in the middle of the intersection with some kind of metal pipe sticking up in the middle of the southbound Palisade lane. It must be damaging cars and it endangers other cars and pedestrians as drivers must swerve to avoid it. I no longer drive that way. It's hard to miss (pun intended).

    Sattva Yoga is planning on having their Yoga classes in a small area of Riverview park that is the ONLY open field space for the community to use during construction in the main park. I do not feel that a for-profit business should be limiting usage of this space. There are always people there, and there is really no other place for kids to run around. This business should NOT be permitted to take space away from the neighborhood that currently has such limited open space due to construction of the main park. They should find a private space. Or maybe they should make a deal with the nearby community garden to have it there?

    From their facebook page:

    A Jersey City street cleaner ran over a steel fence on Palisade Ave, flattening it in the process. Can we get the City to please send a contractor to fix it? I can share video of the incident if necessary. I cannot make out the last two letters of his license plate but it begins with 33243. This happened on 5/22 at 5:23am.

    Something like 30-50 / hr buses try to squeeze through the block of Congress between Paterson Plank and Palisade—plus hundreds of vehicles and pedestrians. The onstreet parking of 20 cars should be banned during the morning rush. It makes difficult for buses to turn and reduces visibility of pedestrians at crosswalks. This would be a minor inconvenience for 20 people easing travel for thousands.
  • 18 Congress St Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights
    The bikes that are located at this location are not used as much now as in the past. These bikes were relocated after the residents signed a petition a few years back. The bikes were on Ogden Avenue consuming precious parking spots. The request to relocate them at that time was granted... however they were relocated appproximatley 20 feet from that original location! A call was made to the mayors office questioning that relocation of 20 feet and the response was do another petition. That is clearly not the answer. The location of them currently in on Congress Street at the corner of Ogden Avenue. This is dangerous for both us bike travelers as well as a major traffic thoroughfare of buses trucks and cars! These bikes must be relocated before there is a serious incident. The area originally requested was a half block west on Congress Street directly on the side of the Fire house

    If there is a plastics ban in Jersey City why is Mi Bandera supermarket (51832nd st, Union City) still allowed to drop off their fliers on front steps in plastic bags? They just blown away and make trash and clog storm drains. Please make this stop.

    There are thousands of these little gnats all over Riverview Fisk park. I just walked my dog and when I got home I have them all over me. Is there anything we can do to get rid of them.

  • Palisade Ave Jersey City, New Jersey - The Heights
    As a Jersey City resident for over 4 years, I have concerns regarding the diesel exhaust fumes emitted by the Bergenline transportation buses. These Buses (or jitney buses) transport passengers from up and down Palisade ave all hours of the day. The fumes they emit keeps me and other residents from walking on Palisade ave. Exposure to diesel exhaust is a serious health hazard; and contains pollutants that contribute to climate change. These vans should be phased out immediately.
