Fire at 1st & Jackson

Dr. Zaklama Dead

Found out today that the infamous Dr. Esmat Zaklama had passed away today.

He was known for his questionable capabilities as a landlord in Hoboken and beyond. He was the one that owned the Nardine’s building at 1st & Jackson that burnt to the ground a year ago.

Wonder what will happen with all the problems he left behind?

Here’s a video of him protesting some religious nonsense a couple years ago:

Nardine’s burns to the ground in Hoboken, NJ

At around 8am this morning, a raging fire toasted the building at the corner of 1st & Jackson streets in Hoboken.

This building is the old Nardine’s that the controversial Dr. Zaklama was involved with.

He’s had a ‘For Rent’ sign on the burnt out shell for almost a year and now the tarps, or so-called “asbestos remediation”, covering the roof have begun to blow away. His property across the street has become a living art tribute to the garbage that washed in during Sandy.

I hear that. When is the city going to condemn this eyesore of a property? I live right near there and there has been no work done on that property since the fire. What is the city waiting for? When it finally collapses into a pile of rubble?

Lol! You do have a comprehension problem because you keep using what I wrote incorrectly. You seem to be comparing the case of a wrongfully executed man, due to outdated training and scientific study by fire inspectors, as support for cutting firefighters. If you did know how to read, you would realize that I am not a supporter of the mayor and would have understood what I had typed. Vodka on your Cherrios is not the best jump start to your day there sir.

I’m surprised this place did not burn down years ago…..dozens of health and fore code violations and the place was completely uninhabitable. No doubt an arson for easy insurance payout!

Ladtc01, I hope that you are commenting because you genuinely care and not because you have an interest in the “list that just came out”. The department has been understaffed for over a year now and the jobs should have been filled long before now. I am just as concerned that the damn Union does nothing to fight for more firefighters as I am with the blatant disregard for life and property on the part of the mayor. The union should have filed suit a long time ago. They are jeopardizing the membership by not fighting for adequate staffing levels. The Chief needs to stand up for his department as well. It is his job to see to it that his men and women are protected as well. One appearance at a City Council meeting hardly redeems the chief who has been jumping through hoops for the mayor since she got elected. Today was a wake up call for everyone who needs to rise up and let the mayor know that she has pushed this city to the brink of disaster.

Did the HPU boot any of the fire trucks today?
