Tried the parking sign bit, promptly ripped down in less than a month. What is wrong with people?

I honestly don't care how they spell it. I got interested in Korean culture through watching Korean Dramas. I have picked up a few words(my Korean friends say my pronunciation is extremely good) and even have cooked Ddukbokki/Tteokbokki. Heck, I am addicted to Gochujang!

Just make the food delicious and rightly priced and no one is going to care about the spelling.

I can't wait for you guys to open. An-nyeong Hi-ga-se-yo.

Re: HBLR (Light Rail) Fare Enforcement at Newport

Sometimes because of the varied nature of my work it saves me money not to purchase the monthly pass and just buy the regular tickets.


People need to pay for their rides. There is a reason they have cut services and wait times have increased. Late at night sometimes you have to wait 35 minutes for a train.

I plan on writing a letter to NJTransit and Jersey City Officials to see if anything can be done to increase fair inspection.

A week and a half ago. My co worker gave me a ride to Port Imperial light rail station. I usually take the 158 bus to the light rail station(light rail transfer ticket 3.05, which pays for the bus and light rail). I boarded the train and then realized that I didn't have my usual ticket cause i didn't take the bus. This was late around 11 at night. Had i gotten off at the next stop i would have waited 30 minutes for the next West Side train, then i usually transfer at Newport to the 8th street train.

I took a chance and rode all the way to Newport, praying that the non-existent fair inspectors wouldn't suddenly materialize from thin air. When I got to Newport where i had to transfer, i proceeded to purchase my ticket.

Stupid me forgot that usually letting the conductor know about an honest mistake and not having a ticket can help in case the fare inspectors show up and of course you have to obviously buy the ticket. I did this once and the conductor and the fare inspectors treated me very well and with understanding. Mind you this was years ago.

I use the monthly pass mostly, but if I don't have a ticket I wait for the next train. I once jumped and forgot to stamp my ticket but jumped off the next stop so I can stamp it.

Re: New bike path from Lincoln Park to Newark

El Squid - I've been looking at the Google map and ECG website. Just double-checking this: When you leave Lincoln Park (headed west to Newark) and approach the Hackensack bridge, do you ride on the sidewalk?

ECG says that at Hackensack Ave. in Kearney, cross at the crosswalk and ride on the sidewalk on the south side of the Lincoln Highway. You do that? Or ride in the road?

And then on the Newark side of the Passaic bridge, are you still on the sidewalk until you get to Raymond?

Thanks!

Is there a way to file a complaint against a law enforcement officer in JC, similar to CCRB in NYC?

We need to start taking pictures and filing official complaints if we see cops in those spots.

The problem is, it's one more thing to do in an already busy life. It should not have to be our job to make sure city employees abide by the law.

Has anyone complained to Candace Osborne or the Mayor about this?

EPIC Auto Care - had tires delivered from TireRack for my minivan (run-flats) and from Discount Tire Direct for my car last month. Top notch expert service, good, honest mechanics. It's on the other side of town where I reside but I'll drive there to get service.

What would you like to see in JC?


More Pride! Where I grew up, even though folks from Manhattan were always making fun of us, Brooklyn people are full of pride from Brownsville to Williamsburg we loved BK and most New Yorkers love New York and proud to be from there.

I have noticed here most people that grew up here and lived here most of their lives hate Jersey City and is looking for a way out.

The new comers especially down in Newport say they are from Newport not Jersey City. I met a tourist in Manhattan a few months ago who was seeking directions back to his hotel in Newport City. I was confused for about a minute then after dissecting his German accent I realized he was trying to get back to Newport in Jersey City.

My point is we are even deceiving tourist into thinking they are not even lodging in Jersey City.

I never seen such hate coming from residents. I think that's why our streets are dirty, and our city is divided.
Jersey City has a stigma about it, its considered dirty, unsafe, with shady politics. I think the best promotion we can do at this time is clean up govt, so the residents can fall in love with the city. Jersey City IMO will continue to be a transient city for newbies who will live here before getting married and then returning back to the Midwest or India.

When is the Jersey City Pride Parade?


I agree that more pride is key to future success. I'm not sure about the Newport area, but I think Jersey City pride is on the rise elsewhere. Here's a good example of some recent JC pride: http://www.chicpeajc.com/.

EVERY person riding the light rail KNOWS that they must pay to ride it. There is a recording, that plays as trains approach the stations, and every time the doors close, reminding people that you must have a validated ticket to ride the train. People that choose to ride without a validated ticket do so at their own risk.

I have heard the same in the past and have actually seen people get cuffed and hauled away. In fact, the guy that looked rather stricken this morning may have been an example of this. They were leading him away and he really looked like he was on the verge of tears.

I hope they step up (and keep up) with the fare enforcement. I'm sure fares would be lower if everyone was paying as they should and maybe, just maybe, we wouldn't have to endure all the fare raises.

Wow. Really surprised if that turns out to be the case. Ripping up a sidewalk, and laying down a new one, would seem like it should warrant a police presence. I really hope it works out that way for you. From what others have said in these forums, the police details are pricey.

LOL!!!! My most memorable moment on the LR was when this old lady from Bayonne who was dressed nicely was hauled off the train in handcuffs because she believe she did not do anything wrong.

When she refused to show ID they hauled her ass off quick in cuffs.

HBLR (Light Rail) Fare Enforcement at Newport
#42
Home away from home
Home away from home


A bit surprised no one has mentioned it here as of yet. This morning, around 8:45 AM, there was fare enforcement at the Newport station. It was truly an LOL moment watching all these "white collar" workers getting busted for not having light rail tickets. One guy looked like a deer caught in headlights... damn near close to crying. Some other putz tried to play dumb by displaying a monthly pass, from June. The police and fare enforcement officers were being super strict and no-nonsense. In just one train (one that was sparsely occupied) there were at least 5 people that got busted. Pretty shameful, and sad. Pay the damn fare!

Also, what transpired today runs counter to the usual narrative/assumption that the only people not paying are the kids, the poor or the ghetto lowlifes. I really do wonder what percentage of people actually pay on a regular basis.

I love ralohs too.

I did buy tires from tire buyer and had them shipped to home (next day from totowa to JC heights) and had them installed at LA familia on grand and fairmount. $50 for mount balance install aand disposal of my old leaky tires. They also saved the two best ones and put them on my extra junky rims which came in handy when my car was hit while parked and I needed to have the whole back axle replaced. They held me up well.

Even if you made the fines upwards of $1,000.00, nothing will change. In the end, the worst abusers are cops, or their friends/relatives/spouses. As such, they are "untouchable" and the Parking Authority will not ticket them. I am always surprised/disappointed by all the cars you see parked illegally on the corners of 2nd and Newark, and Bay and Newark. Over on Bay, you have the Keyhole Bar, next to the JCFD fire station. Always cop cars, or cars with the police badges affixed to the windshield, parked illegally on the "no parking" white lines/zones.

Re: Fulop to solicit proposals from for-profit companies to replace FOL in running the Loew’s theater

As I've posted earlier, the hard work was done ten to fifteen years ago by a dedicated and hard-working group of volunteers who believed in the theatre. One by one, they all left and were disgusted with the "management" in charge.

If it weren't for film shoots, many other things (carpeting, cove lighting, marquee underside, etc) would never have gotten done.

Colin's method of lighting was bare bulbs hanging on pig tails. When the public events began, that didn't pass code so cheap fixtures were bought at Kohl's or Home Depot.

If people knew the truth, their current lies and spin wouldn't get the management a hot dog at Boulevard Drinks!

I'd like to thank everyone for your input - it's always good to see JCList actually adding value.

As a follow-up for anyone else in our same situation, I confirmed with the Department of Public Works that the majority of the City's sidewalks in residential areas are, in fact, the responsibility of the property owners.

All work needs to be permitted through the DPW, Traffic Division. The fee is generally $10 - $15 (via check), and I have been told that it's a check the box type of permit process.


The permit fee may be only $10 - $15, but don't forget to factor in the costs you WILL incur in getting the requisite off-duty police detail.

Yes. While cleaning up the yard in a house we renovated several years ago in Bergen Lafayette, I uncovered a very large, double-basin, enameled cast iron sink. It weighed a couple of hundred lbs and would probably have looked like an oil tank in a sweep.

Keep your fingers crossed.

I'd like to definitely see them pack up and leave too. I'm not directly on Ocean, but close enough to feel the impact. I have kids, who will be growing up here in JC, and whatever the city has to do to clean up the crime/ drug activity is fine with me. If the announcement works, and hopefully for the long term, that's great. Let's just hope it goes silent for a while then back to the normal operations.

Where will you be located? Are you doing a kickstarter which gives patrons/benefactors a perk? My freshman year roommate was Korean and fell in love with the cuisine instantaneously.
