Human checking in! You can actually look at tax abatement data and information here - it's a couple years old, but will give you a good look at what's out there: https://civicparent.org/2021/07/26/jersey-city-2021-budget-160-abatements-on-citys-books-visualizations-on-abatement-type-value-pilots-and-taxes-if-billed-in-full/


So if your building claims that they are raising because taxes went up - double check here to make sure that's true!

Some claim it, others have it. A lot of the newer buildings don’t have tax abatements partly because Fulop and others worked to stop the practice in some parts of the city.

All I know is Equity Residential has been caught lying about Portside Towers and they continue to be antagonistic to anyone that questions them in their buildings.

Yes, there will be a record of it.

You may have some challenges if your intent is to apply for citizenship, but if your timeline is 3-5 years then it will likely not be an issue as long as you don't run into other issues.

I'm not a lawyer, so please take anything I say with a healthy amount of skepticism. You should consult with an immigration lawyer for more of the intricacies of the system. Here is a discussion about this very issue that happened in 2018: https://www.justanswer.com/criminal-law/bp3ke-ticket-nj-path-train-station-saying-fare.html

1 mistake is not going to define your life, this is a misdemeanor offense and it will not disrupt your life terribly. Reading between the lines, it sounds like you're nervous about someone else finding out about it - if that's the situation, it's best to have that conversation with people early and let them know what happened.

The ticket will likely take a few days to "go into the system," and then give a call to the PATH police: 201-216-6078; they should be able to give you more information.

You're going to be alright.

You could have canceled the event, you didn’t, and then you allowed scripted videos to be filmed on your rooftop. You aren’t genuinely sorry. You know exactly who you are working with.

Take a look at the most recent posts. They allowed filming on their roof for videos featuring kids and people with scripts. 902 Brewing isn’t innocent - they know exactly what they did.

Take a look at the latest from 902 Brewery - their “public event” turned into a filmed event featuring scripted videos. Sounds like a great propaganda event from our “friends” at 902! https://www.reddit.com/r/jerseycity/comments/12048a2/event_related_to_liberty_state_park_development/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=ioscss&utm_content=2&utm_term=1

This absolutely proves this is more than just a public forum, but is an official organized use of the space by Paul Fireman and his team. It’s clear their claims of innocence are bullshit.


el_tigrox OP t1_jdd66vm wrote

I don’t see anything misleading about a purposefully generic headline “902 Brewing to host Paul Fireman backed event” - that’s just a straight up fact based headline. That’s what’s happening here.

Look, you got other shit to worry about, I’m done the tit for tat thing too and I know you are as well - it’s clear. You have beer to brew, there will be plenty of people coming in the door, you may not even feel a pinch on your pocket, but next go around, think about the groups you invite indoors.

Internet bullying = people letting you know legit grievances against this group. But you don’t really care, you just want to throw a shield up, or to plug your ears and carry on.

Going back through your comments (54 days ago), you’ve in the past called for boycotts of other bars that serve mass chain beer - showing you want consumers to vote with dollars on their choice for beer and even hurt other bars. So you’ve made my choice for me - I will now boycott you.

Your call for boycott tactics: https://www.reddit.com/r/njbeer/comments/10m2a3r/the_njabc_has_relaxed_the_10day_notification_for/j64na68/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=ioscss&utm_content=1&utm_term=1&context=3

Ah bummer, that’s the confirmation that you’re willing to host this event. I can’t support you anymore. This is one of the largest issues locally and you’ve decided you’re cool with Paul Fireman and his group.

His people by the way have had other public events canceled around this - this isn’t about public debate or questions.


el_tigrox OP t1_jdcsmke wrote

In the 15 years I’ve lived here, he’s attempted this multiple times - first it was called “Liberty State Park For All,” and now it’s the rebranded “People’s Park Foundation” - they’ve all been directly funded by Fireman as he’s attempted to pull in a coalition of interests. There’s a number of articles that address his direct connection. The money funnels from Fireman’s charity right into these groups - and they try to maintain an illusion of local people running them, but they’re not.


el_tigrox OP t1_jdcgv6q wrote

I go there pretty often, have enjoyed music on the roof, and make sure to pick up their beer in cans in the local stores, because it is inherently a good thing to support local businesses, but this is a big local issue, and depending upon where they really fall on it - that will absolutely change my habits. There’s more local beer to buy than beer that supports this cause.


el_tigrox OP t1_jdcdjfv wrote

Totally hear you about maybe being duped by an organization that sounds good on paper, but has deep ties to wanting to forever change the park by adding stadiums, race tracks and commercial elements in the name of “people.” And it’s good that people can use your business as a community space. But now that you have a bit more information about this event - will you cancel it?

We stopped going there because the hours just were too late in the morning. Opening up at 10 is great for brunchers, but my old ass is up at 7, and I want to eat by 8. There's just not many places around here for breakfast, period. And ones that open for earlier-than-brunch hours, are even less.
