A Chinese firm wants to build 1,000 unit in Jersey City; that is nothing! Over in Hoboken we have NJT wanting to build over 2,500 - 3,500 units over the transit tracks. Best yet we have choices like developer shill Tim Occhipinti and NJT yes man Ruben Ramos as choices in contrast to our more reasonable Mayor Zimmer that wants to hold back on the residential scale.

Thank goodness for Mayor Zimmer.

Don't forget Christie - he loves NJT. The idiots there cost NJ tax payers a fortune because they didn't move those trains to higher ground when they knew Sandy was coming. But no higher-up got fired - it was some low level employee's fault. Yeah, right.
