I think if you can get photos of Snookie and Jwoww, instead of giving them to the Jersey Journal for free you should probably try selling them or at least posting them someplace for personal publicity.

Filming of 'Jersey Shore' spinoff starring Snooki and JWoww postponed, Jersey City police say

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... _jersey_shore_spinof.html

The start of filming for the "Jersey Shore'' spinoff starring Nicole "Snooki'' Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww'' Farley has been postponed until the end of the week, Jersey City Police Capt. Joseph Connors has told media gathered outside the old firehouse on Mercer Street that's to be at the heart of the show.

Filming was scheduled to begin today, according to notices neighbors received from the production company.

A representative of the company, 495 Productions, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Several reporters and a TV crew have stationed themselves on Mercer Street in anticipation of the filming.

Police have told them to stay clear of the building's entrance and city representatives are discussing where the media should congregate for the duration of the six-week filming, according to Jersey Journal photographer Reena Rose Sibayan, who's at the scene.

The show, which has been described as a Snooki and JWoww version of "Laverne & Shirley,'' has spurred controversy in Hudson County as the Hoboken administration rejected a filming permit and the Jersey City administration granted one.

In Jersey City, neighbors have expressed concern over things like parking but have been split on whether the filming will be good or bad for the area. Jersey Journal reporter Terrence McDonald wrote last week that many in Seaside Heights have seen the "Jersey Shore'' reality show as a boon for business.

Scratch the bakery theory, I guess it won't help when they're not open especially when it's dark out. But compared to other parts of J.C that are questionable the Village seems quiet and safe. What I am trying to say is not being from the Village I am not as alarmed as I would be else where in J.C. It's safe however don't let your guard down.

Yes Healy will run, but we need a mayor for all of JC not just downtown. Fulop will not get the rest of the JC votes West Bergen, Greenville etc are not fond of Fulop or Healy.


OK, I can understand why those wards wouldn't like Healy but why not Fulop? As far as I can tell, he is actually the only ward councilman that takes even a remote interest in the other districts. And if he is elected, he will not focus just on downtown. In order for JC to viable long term, other areas of JC need desperate attention. Fulop knows this and he is not dumb enough to run for mayor and then focus all his time on Downtown. He will find and support a candidate that can carry his torch for Ward E and focus on the other districts as appropriate.

From Grove the walk up Newark is okay, but I still have a whistle and pepper spray in my purse.
You can also go through the Mall from the Newport stop, it's quieter along 8th street past Hamilton Park.

Thank you very much!

Their website clearly mentions that they are insured.

I called them but they are not available until the 29th. Requested them to give an estimate so that I can decide.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE QUICK RESPONSE! Much appreciated. :)

Mods - I created a new thread because my query was on movers with certificate of insurance, not just all movers. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Car Dealers on 440

The further you can go, the better selection, prices, and service you'll get. The places on 440 We've shopped have been way overpriced and the salesmen have been unprofessional and not very knowledgeable.

We had a good experience at Mahwah Ford buying a used car. The dealership looked like it was from the 1950s but the staff was trustworthy and enthusiastic about the cars. We got a great price from them after doing our research on autotrader for comps.

Do your research. Scour the area. Befriend a Car and Driver subscriber. Be prepared to walk away from a car if you can't get the price to where you need it. Let the salesman try to figure you out. A good salesman will appreciate the cat and mouse approach.

They have my favorite pizza in JC. It's thin and crispy with just the right crust/cheese/sauce ratio. They get pretty busy at lunch but they are always friendly and working hard to get orders filled. And a slice of plain is still $2!

When I've ordered delivery, the pizza comes hot and fresh but it always seems to take 45min at night.

I live on 5th between Monmouth and Brunswick, and pretty much agree with all of the above. Never had an issue walking home late at night or anything of that nature.

Movers with Certificate of Insurance - recommendations?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi,

We are moving from a one-bed in Newport to an apartment in "The A Building" this weekend. Less than 0.5 mile commute.

The building management wants the movers to have a COI.

Any recommendations on the movers?

Thanks!

The Village neighborhood is very safe. Everything East of the Turnpike is safe. Other safe areas: Lincoln Park, St Peters area, Heights, Droyers Point, JSQ, Hilltop...

Seemed like the village area (around 4th and monmouth) was a mixed bag of new renovations and older buildings, but seemed pretty safe to me. Excepting the normal precautions of being aware and the fact that crime can happen anywhere, is it a pretty safe area to walk back from the grove street path at night? How about around 2nd street and the Waldo lofts? Thanks for any input.

Anyone who is interested, please contact me directly at effy7@verizon.net

The offer we have is for year-round locked storage and a private launch. I will see about a water supply.

Most of you know space is at a premium on the downtown Jersey City waterfront. The kinds of amenities we are talking about may not come cheaply. The land-owner was interested to know if there was any interest at all, so I'm doing the research. If there are enough of us it may be doable.

Just wanted to chime in here. We order from here often and we love it! Today I ordered a salad for the first time and it was great. I've been pretty disappointed with the salad options in JC and was happy to get a tasty and filling salad for a very reasonable price.

Actually the police are in possession of video. I wouldn't be surprised that these geniuses are caught shortly. I know the owner of the store.

Snooki lookalikes compete in Jersey City bar close to set of Jersey Shore spin-off set

February 20, 2012, 11:31 AM
By Dan Rosenblum/For The Jersey Journal

As the “Jersey Shore” spin-off featuring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley heads to Downtown Jersey City, residents looking to see the stars on their infamous nights out didn’t have to travel too far.

One block away from the old firehouse where the crew is setting up a “Laverne and Shirley”-type apartment for the duo, local bar Pint hosted a “Night of 1,000 Snookis” Friday night that featured Snook-a-like and fist-pumping contests.

Before the event, Pint owner Wolf Sterling worked the room wearing a Snooki wig, but he admitted he ran into a roadblock.

“It’s hard to get a polyester wig that matches a gray beard,” he said.

Though some residents fear the show will lower the city’s image, Sterling wasn’t angry about its coming to town. “Those people suck,” Sterling, 42, said of the show’s critics.

Jersey City, he said, has no national image and the show would give the city a chance to show its vibrant neighborhoods. “What are they afraid of?” he said.

The event wasn’t affiliated with the production company filming the show, but he said it got him more media buzz than he’s had in the four years he’s owned the bar.

Alexandria Kavanagh, 25, of Jersey City, was the first Snooki at the bar. She said people already mistake her for the reality-TV star and she only had to buy a few accessories before entering the costume competition.

Kavanagh said her mom saw the event in a newspaper and told her about the competition. She was happy about the show being in Jersey City.

“It’s better they’re here than Hoboken, because we’d appreciate it more,” she said.

Ultimately, three Snookis showed up. Bar patrons packed around the impersonators, taking plenty of photographs.

Snook-a-like Liz Coschera, 29, of Jersey City, said she liked how the event both embraced and made fun of the show. To celebrate the contest and city pride, she shopped locally for her costume along Newark Avenue and at the Newport Centre mall.

During the contest, Sterling re-created what he called Snooki’s favorite pastime by having the Snookis sit on the bar. He asked them trivia questions, including their favorite food.

“Pickles,” the contestants yelled, showing their knowledge of the real Snooki’s tastes.

Ultimately, Kavanagh won the $200 prize.

“It feels good,” she said afterward. “My mom will be proud.”

In general, it is a nice building. There are two elevators. Most of the time, I use the stairs.

The condo fee has gone up over the years. Last year, it came down. We try to be frugal and save money wherever we can.

Now is a good time to buy. You will be paying 2003 prices. And mortgage rates are at historical lows. Make sure you will not be overpaying real estate taxes since the value came down.
