I'm a regular at the Light Horse and Edward's Steakhouse, but I'm pretty sure they didn't start up before 2004.

Be careful out there folks... There was an attempt on my street-parked car on Saturday night (downtown). I need a new door lock but there doesn't seem to be any further damage, and no, between alarm & immobilizer, they couldn't take the car.

Does anyone know where to find the actual figures of how much JCMUA pays the city each year in franchise fees?

The surplus that is now going to be paid to the city is on top of the fees that are already paid every year.

Yes, HP Ale House! I couldn't remember the name. I was thinking they just kept the same name under the new management after Maggie went to open Skinner's. Thanks for the clarification

This actually sounds like a fun game. I agree that there probably won't be a lot (at least not downtown . Maybe more in other parts of the city?) I'll go with downtown places.

Edward's Steakhouse
Madame Claude
The Taqueria (I think?)
Grand Banks
Komeghashi
Brownstone
Light Horse
La Conguita
Hamilton Inn

me, falsely accuse someone? no way, no how, the first and last definitions from wikipedia - a slush fund, colloquially, is an auxiliary monetary account or a reserve fund and the term slush fund is used in accounting to describe a general ledger account in which all manner of transactions can be posted to commingled funds and "loose" monies by debits and credits cancelling each other out.

sorry, not returning the overpayment to the rate payers is wrong.

anyway, so, most people have moved on, why not you?

So you are making the accusation that the City Council members plan to use this money in an illicit/fraudulent manner? Correct my if I am mistaken, but does a "slush fund" in the governmental/political context not imply an illegal use of funds?

Now I know you are sorely hurt after a number of failed campaigns for office, but what is your basis of making the claim that the Council members are going to use this money for illegal matters? Do you have any evidence to back up this claim?

Really sad bunch, you/Yvonne/Fletcher/et als.

For years, JC has been settling lawsuits with various people for "police brutality." I am not taking sides, but perhaps this will reduce some of the yearly lawsuits.

White Plains is probably going to be mostly or all snow. You should also consider that if the storm begins early enough that people living along the line stay home, the train will not be the usual Wednesday before Thanksgiving Crush. On the other hand, there is the potential that everyone is leaving earlier.

Either way, remember, you can buy beer on the platform of MetroNorth, drink on the train, and the all of Grand Central is the city's largest bar.

I don't think the weather will be too bad. Try to leave early or even get an earlier train.

I too am car less but its easy to get to Mitsuwa. Just take the light rail to Port Imperial....cross the street from the station and take the 158. It drops you right in front.


I am still wondering whether for dessert to have green tea ice cream, bubble tea(haven't tried it at Mitsuwa) or....stick to the vendor who sells traditional bean or cream filled pastries that look like a fish, monkey....or simple shapes. YUM!

You'll have to check in the morning due to the snow that's coming. Most likely the incinerator authority is preparing for the snow so be sure to not park in a tow away zone.

Paterson, Jersey City and Newark plan to equip cops with body cameras

November 25, 2014, 6:33 PM
By ABBOTT KOLOFF and HERB JACKSON
staff writers | The Record

Paterson and the state’s two largest cities plan to purchase body cameras for its police officers in order to have them in the field sometime next year, Mayor Joey Torres confirmed on Tuesday.

Torres said that the decision to use personal cameras was made in September when he met with the mayors of Jersey City and Newark about a proposed shared services plan that would include a joint task force to combat violent crime.

The announcement comes as the debate over the use of such cameras has heated up over unrest in Ferguson, Mo. where a grand jury on Monday declined to indict a police officer who fatally shot an unarmed African American teenager in August.

Many witness accounts of that incident diverge from the police officer’s recounting of events before a grand jury. The family of Michael Brown, the teenager who was killed in that encounter, has promoted the idea that police officers be equipped with the cameras to record incident where the facts are in dispute.

But Torres said the decision to buy the cameras has nothing to do with that case.

“I’m not looking at this as being reactionary to Ferguson,” he said. “We’ve been looking at shared services, and that is one of the items we’ve been talking about.”

He said that the cameras would be purchased in bulk by the three cities to reduce the cost, comparing it to other proposed shared services agreements that are part of a proposal announced by the cities. They also are planning to purchase rock salt in bulk, he said.

News of the proposed purchase first came from Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop who said on Tuesday that the three cities were planning to make one of the largest purchases of such cameras for law enforcement in the country.

Are Top Chefs Really Fleeing New York for Jersey City?
Restaurants owned by reputable chefs are popping up across the river from the culinary center of the world

The Daily Meal
November 21, 2014 | 05:53 PM
By Joanna Fantozzi, Editor

Move over, New York. Jersey City is fighting to become one of the culinary hotspots of the Northeast. But will they succeed? It’s tough to tell, but several chef alums from well-known restaurants in New York like Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Allen & Delancey, and Pork Slope, have made the move to Jersey City to open their own restaurants across the river.

In the past 18 months, 10 new restaurants have opened in the New Jersey city on the Hudson, including the rustic French Kitchen at Grove Station by chef David Viana (formerly at Eleven Madison Park and Batello); small plates and ramen café Union Republic by chef Gregory Torrech (alum of Resto, Allen & Delancey); Thirty Acres by chef Kevin Pemoulie (formerly of Craftbar and Momofuku Noodle Bar), and the Asian-American restaurant Talde, run by chef Dale Talde (a Top Chef contestant who trained with Masaharu Morimoto and Jean Georges).
