Anyone using the SJW pejorative tends to be a trog. Why don't you go harass women in gaming or something.



Wow... very cutting comment, Trog... did you think that up yourself? So which of the Fascist Frat boys are you in the SP video? It's funny none of SWJs commented on this brilliant satire. Its not to hard to understand that the title of Campus Asshole has shifted from the Jock/Musclehead Frats to the self entitled SJWs. It is not surprising that your narrow mind found only my comment to be pejorative.

It depends completely on what needs to be done. Are you rewiring? Tearing out the plumbing? Putting up all new sheet rock throughout? What are you putting in it? Higher end products or cheap stuff?

Way too few details to give you a good answer

When DeBlasio is in the joint with Skelos and Silver he'll be thrilled to have some Chik Fil A . . . of course, all the 'boycott' talk hasn't done a thing to the brand, while Target stock is in a nosedive, and their market cap is down a couple BILLION dollars over their 'progressive' bathroom policies.

Here we go again...

Thieves made off with all four tires from two cars in the Heights yesterday in what is least the third reported incident of tire theft this week.

Just before 9:30 a.m., a 39-year-old St. Pauls Avenue man reported to police that the tires on his 2014 Infiniti Q50 were stolen and his car was left propped up on bricks, a police report indicated.

The victim told police he parked his car near Seaman Avenue at about 5 p.m. on Tuesday and he learned of the theft from one of his neighbors. The tires and rims were valued at about $4,000, police said.

I'm biased because I'm a Trump supporter but I don't think so. The most an AG could do is place JC under a microscope and make sure the administration is following all the laws. I'd think most JC residents would welcome that.

Not only did Mayor Fulop's guy Prieto fail in his AC plan (he's trying to save face by saying he'll reschedule the vote for next Wednesday), but Prieto's Speakership position is said to be in danger as well. With another murder in BeLa early this morning it's not been a good Cinco de Mayo for Mayoro Fulop.

For whatever reason, there is this misconception that DTJC is a grocery store dessert, but that is way, way off. In addition to Shoprite and BJs, there is the Conga Supermarket (which is surprisingly vast in its stock, and available produce) plus the various small Korean grocers, and there is also that new organic place over Union Republic, Subia's, and not too far from DTJC there is Hudson Greene Market in PH and Morton Williams in Newport.

I don't know how big the old Pathmark was but they usually open large stores, think Asian Food with a restaurant.
Their stores in CA are huge they are also opening a store in Hackensack.

Actually there is more larceny in the East (Hamilton Park, Van Vorst Park, Harsimus Cove and Paulus Hook) than any other district in Jersey City - not surprising as you steal from where the money is naturally.

And get this, there were 8 forcible entry burglaries, and 11 total in March alone. That's a break in once every 3 days. Total serious crimes numbered 90 for March, so 3 per day on average.

So yeh, go ahead and leave you windows unlocked.

See the March 2016 crime report here:
http://www.njjcpd.org/sites/default/files/Mar2016.pdf


I don't live in Van Vorst, so let's keep my windows out of this discussion.
I’m not saying there is no crime in VVP or any of the downtown locations you mentioned. This is city. Even in the most expensive Manhattan neighborhoods you will find crime. But you're also cherry picking one category of crime, larceny. It is petty larceny to steal the change in my car. Thankfully, stolen change is the only crime I've experienced downtown. Guess what? It didn’t make me feel any less safe.
Judging by this crime map, I'm not wrong feeling much safer in VVP (or in HP/PH/HC) rather than in Arlington Park.

Not true, unless you are talking about distance as the crow flies. The distance from Grove Street PATH station to Old Colony is just shy of a mile, which is why people are not going to be walking all the way there to then back track. Google Maps walking directions.

Hopefully whatever finally gets built there will be an asset to the neighborhood.

I'm torn on the car locking issue.

Locking prevents the guy who walks around pulling on handles until he finds a winner from stealing my change.

Unlocking prevents the guy with the screwdriver who breaks my lock, then steals my change.

So far, unlocked has cost me less.

There is still nothing happening at the tilted kilt spot or the retail space under gulls cove that was to be Sawa

Before you shell out money for high rents, always challenge the illusion of safety in your area. The murder rate is heating up, so lock your windows folks.

Not too shy to talk


From what I've heard, the building that's part of Liberty Harbor North that's going up at Jersey and Grand (across the street from Brownstone Diner) is supposed to have 20k retail square footage and some sort of upscale grocery store was planned - there could be room for a Trader Joe's. Anybody hear any updates on what's ultimately planned for that building?

We've also got the Sunac Natural Market coming in at 70 Columbus and (hopefully) 99 Ranch is still planned to open up where the Pathmark was.

I really hope this summer brings an end to downtown being a grocery desert for those that don't own a car.

Its not about wanting a nicer neighborhood. My point is that you need to be aware of where you live, and there is a high crime element within a stones throw away. High rent does not equate to safety.

Completely agree about Metropolis Towers - a horrible eyesore. Unfortunately, the renderings appear to show the towers in the background, so I don't think they're going anywhere.

You're right, but it seems there is lots of help out here with everyone bashing Yvonne. I cannot believe how many on this thread are trying to stifle Yvonne's free thinking.


Really, you are surprised that people are criticizing a hateful bigot?

I think bigot is the wrong term being used or being used incorrectly. It does not apply here. Quit sensationalizing the truth and making a mockery of being ethical.


Just curious, do you agree with her or just not understand what a bigot is?

I know the meaning of the word bigot even prior to the definition posted in this thread. I really think this is a safety issue and of course an ethical one as well. So in answer to your question yes. I join those that are in agreement with Yvonne whether they know her or not. Perhaps a more forgiving solution would be to let those use restroom facilities that match their tools of nature they are currently equipped with.


Okay, so you agree with Yvonne. You are entitled to your opinion. How exactly do you intend to enforce this sort of policy? Do peoples' genitals need to be checked at the door of each public restroom before they can enter? Yvonne has not answered this question, maybe you can.

Whole Foods opening Jersey City location in 2020

Whole Foods is coming to Jersey City.

The upscale supermarket announced this afternoon that it will open a market near the Grove Street PATH station in 2020.

Plans are for a 45,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market on the site of Metropolis Towers, at Columbus Drive and Marin Boulevard. That's more than twice the size of the Whole Foods in Montclair, one of Whole Foods' 15 New Jersey locations.
