Re: Hamilton Park dogs
Home away from home
Home away from home


I'm a dog owner, and I think it's fine to single out dog owners who let their dogs on the Pet-Free lawns. There are other areas of the park where the dogs can go---the dog runs and the areas that aren't pet-free. So why do some people insist on letting their dogs on the couple of areas where humans should be assured that there's no pee?

Re: ABBONDANZA TRATTORA at Liberty Harbor

Had dinner here the other week (first week they were open). They were pretty busy (which was interesting since they haven't yet widely advertised).

The food was very good. The menu is classic red-sauce Italian, and all the dishes we tried were very strong renditions of those classics. Not sure if the pasta was fresh or dried, but either way it was cooked very well, and the meat dishes we tried were also very good.

Service was great when we first arrived but slowed down a bit as the place filled up. Considering they had only been open a few days things were pretty smooth though.

Prices are very reasonable and portions are big. The value is actually pretty impressive, as many of the dishes are enough for two full meals and most of the entrees are $15 or less.

The outdoor sign mentions brick oven pizza but when we there there there was no pizza on the menu. Maybe it's for takeout only, or maybe it's coming soon.

Either way it's a nice addition to the neighborhood and we'll definitely be back.

Only 4 shots by the cop ? Damn, if I was the cop and he pointed a gun at me, he'd be shot more then 4 times and I'd even let the dog bite his sorry ass for good measure.

Usually, USUALLY I would be siding with you, but I have read many different accounts of this story. Two known facts the cop that arrived on the scene was dispatched out to a call of shots fired in the area, secondly they came upon this man who they were chasing from the scene, he had this gun around his neck on a shoelace, it was photographed and printed in the paper. Several blocks from where he was shot and where the inital call came in was the shell casings of.... ta-da! HIS GUN... so its not hard to believe he was aiming it anywhere he please, agreed it was a tragedy, a tragedy that he did something so STUPID that his life was taken away from him, no one deserves to die and as much as I not really care for the JCPD force, they would not have deserved to die either because they didn't want to hurt someone who was pointing a gun at them. Though, I do think if a cop is going to shoot his weapon it should be to disable or disarm them just my opinion but I believe he was justified anyways.

Bergen Lafayette: Mother charged with child endangerment -- allows gun-toting boyfriend in

Jersey City woman charged with child endangerment after she allows gun-toting boyfriend to enter house, police say

Monday, September 05, 2011, 9:02 PM
By Charles Hack/The Jersey Journal

A 24-year-old Jersey City woman was charged with child endangerment after she let her gun-toting boyfriend enter the home where her young kids were, police say.

A 24-year-old Jersey City woman was arrested and charged with child endangerment yesterday morning after she allowed her boyfriend, who had just fired a gun, to enter her apartment where her three young children were present, reports said.

The woman was charged with obstruction of a governmental function, hindering apprehension, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, reports said.

Her boyfriend Sergio A. Rodriguez, 32, of Grattan Street in Brooklyn, was charged with possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon, reports said.

Police were called to the apartment building on Lexington Avenue near Bergen Avenue shortly before 5 a.m. on the report of shots being fired by a man who was holding a gun and a bottle of liquor, reports said.

Police officers found the man sitting on steps at the entrance of the building, but when they ordered him to the ground, he ran inside the building and the entrance door locked behind him, reports said.

Emergency Service Unit officers were called to the scene as well as Port Authority officers for backup, reports said.

A police negotiator used a public address system to talk to people inside the building, and at 6:07 a.m., the 24-year-old woman walked outside, followed shortly by her two older children, reports said, noting her 2-year-old child remained in the apartment.

The woman initially denied Rodriguez had gone into her apartment carrying a gun, but later confessed she had lied to the officers and admitted he ran into her apartment and dropped the gun -- a High Point handgun Model C9 -- in a box, reports said.

After receiving a consent order, police searched the apartment at around 7:30 a.m. and found the 2-year-old, along with the gun and ammo, reports said.

In the meantime, police found Rodriguez hiding in the basement of the building, reports said.

The ages of the woman's two older children were not listed in police reports. The woman's identity is being withheld to protect the identities of the children.

The state Division of Youth and Family Services were notified, reports said.
It is not clear at what or at whom Rodriguez was shooting, police said.

Jersey City man is shot in arm while chatting with neighbor, reports say

Monday, September 05, 2011, 6:51 PM
By Charles Hack/The Jersey Journal

A man was shot Saturday near Wayne and Grove streets in Jersey City as he sat on his porch talking with a neighbor, reports said.

A Jersey City man was shot through the left arm Saturday night while sitting on his porch in Downtown Jersey City, police reports said.

Police were called to a house on Wayne Street near Grove Street at 9 p.m. where they met the 30-year-old man who said he was sitting on his porch chatting with his neighbor when two men approached the house, reports said.

One of the men raised a black semi-automatic handgun and fired three shots without saying a word, reports said, adding the suspects then continued walking toward Marin Boulevard.

While the neighbor called 911, the victim bandaged his arm and waited for an ambulance, reports said.

The victim was treated at Jersey City Medical Center for a non-life threatening gunshot wound in his left biceps, with an exit wound in the back of his arm, reports said.

The victim said the suspects were dressed in black and in their late 20s or early 30s.

Police recovered two bullets inside the victim's house -- one in the hallway behind a hole in the front door and another under the victim's bed just below another bullet hole in the wall, reports said.

A .45-mm shell casing was also found outside the neighbor's property, reports said.

Re: New Basement Door in Brownstone: Where To Buy (Odd Size)?
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


You can special order them from the millwork desk at HD or Lowes. (or any other lumber yard). Will take 2-3 weeks to get. (and 2-3 times the cost of the off the shelf ones at times)
Alternatively you can get a standard size one, ideally a solid core wood one and cut it to size. An experienced carpenter should be able to do this. If you go this route the best type is a "Slab Style" wood door. Harder to cut the steel clad ones.

New Basement Door in Brownstone: Where To Buy (Odd Size)?
Home away from home
Home away from home


We need to replace our basement door (single family brownstone) and it's not the normal entry size door. It's about 30 X 72 (the one that usually sits behind the iron gates/doors under the front stoop/stairs). I wondered if anyone else who owns here has replaced theirs and where you get one; Lowes/Home Depot seem to only sell normal sized doors.

yeah ok, you can speculate all you want. that's cool. I'll tell you this much, nobody with a mac-11 in their possession is going to get "bullied" into anything. Do you see the clip in that gun? That magazine holds enough rounds to take out a whole precinct. Stop making excuses for this man's behavior. He's responsible for his own actions, and actions have consequences. Unfortunately for him, his actions put innocent lives in danger and the officers on the scene reacted accordingly.

I do agree with you on one point, and that's your point that our justice system is flawed. I think there should be a full investigation as well, and I'm sure there will be. That's usually protocol.

Other than that, stop calling this grown man a "kid."

Well I agree those areas shouldn't have to reduce their workforce. However, that doesn't mean those areas don't have fat to trim. Change from defined benefit to defined contribution for new employees (police and teachers), extend the number of years one has to work to retire and receive pensions, and require greater pay into medical are three things that could be done to get cost savings without reducing the size of the force. Those negotiations have happened elsewhere in this country. The relative power of the union is too strong in NJ and then rather than agreeing to reduction in benefits or reduction in pay increases, it becomes a cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-the-taxpayers-face situation. To protect the majority of their members, the union will throw a few employees under the bus. They are acting rationally given their mission, but you can't say it is the best outcome for the state or the taxpayers. Why not let the unions take equal (if not more) blame than Christie?

Sub-compact machine guns like this one are capable of 1200 rounds a minute and easily mowing down a crowd of people let alone one cop. People own this kind of weapon with the intention of killing many people in a hurry, and it's a preferred weapon for drive-by shootings due to it's incredibly fast rate of fire and it's compact nature...

Seagull - you've prejudged everything. A cop killed a kid allegedly carrying a gun. His parents are in mourning and are looking for answers. Everyone including you have already declared the kid guilty. Without any investigation nor trial.

When I used the term "slaves", it was a reference to the poor, underpriviledged, and anyone you care to throw under the bus. The USA has a bit of a checkered history on this.

I don't need the press to justify to me why a kid was executed. I don't need some sychophants on JCLIst to parrot the reasons from the JJ as to why the kid was executed. I'd like to see a real independent investigation as to what happened, and a real clearing of JCPD on the incident. And I genuinely believe JCPD did nothing wrong. But I believe JUSTICE needs to be seen to be done.

Seagull - stop rattling like an empty can.

Grace Van Vorst Cathedral Arts 2011 -- Attention Artists and Art Lovers
Home away from home
Home away from home


22nd Annual Cathedral Arts Festival – CALL FOR ART



“Something New for Something Old”



The Cathedral Arts Festival, the largest and longest-running celebration of artists and the arts in Hudson County, proudly embraces tradition in 2011. For over twenty years, the loyalty and creative gifts of our ever-growing pool of submitting artists, and the dedication and hard work of tireless and passionate art supporters, both behind the scenes and in the crowds, have helped to make Cathedral Arts Festival a treasured cultural institution in the county, and a crown jewel in the cultural fabric that is historic, downtown Jersey City. It all sounds so familiar, doesn’t it? But read on ...



Our gallery venue is, itself, a work of art. The beautiful, 158-year-old sanctuary of Jersey City’s beloved Grace Church Van Vorst is the permanent home for this annual exhibition and festival. Our traditional champagne gala will officially open the visual art gallery on Saturday, November 12th and the exhibition will remain open throughout the fall holiday season. The festival will end with the closing of the gallery on Friday, December 2nd. Tradition and celebration define community life at Grace Church; it reveals our spirit and informs our identity. That’s not going to change!



We now reach out to our local art community and beyond to find the artists and work that will be CAF 22, but this year we are looking for the unexpected! As always, artwork in all media and encompassing all subject matter will be considered, but in 2011 we are seeking surprise; something new from the familiar. As you consider your body of work, and what you’d like to contribute to the show, challenge your creative palette; excite and inspire us! The curatorial team asks that all submissions be new to CAF and our gallery space, not recently exhibited locally, physically available to CAF from drop-off weekend through the close of the festival, and reasonably priced so that visitors to the gallery might be encouraged and able to purchase original art of exceptional quality. All work is for sale with 60% of the sale going to the exhibiting artist and 40% to Grace Church.



Please submit up to six JPEGS (preferred) or prints of your work. JPEGs/prints should be of good quality, true to color, and named so as to be easily identifiable to the artist and for content. Please submit JPEGs that are 72 dpi.



For each submission please clearly note/provide the following:



· Artist name and contact information (address, phone(s) and email)

· Title of Work

· Medium of Artwork

· Dimensions (height x width x length)

· Price

· One-Page resume



We encourage all artists who can to submit work via email by forwarding all materials and info to: caf-art@gracevanvorst.org. You may, however, mail your submission or drop it off at the church. All submissions, however, must be received on or before September 17th to be considered. If you choose to submit by mail, send all information to Grace Church Van Vorst, Attention: CAF 22 Artwork Submissions. Decisions regarding accepted work are expected in mid October.
