Re: Good things we have done or encouraged in JC
Home away from home
Home away from home


Once my cousin and I were playing with our older uncle, joshing around like when we were kids, and some guy jumps in and starts berating us. I told him to MYOB, and I think he learned a lesson that day.

Another time, I felt so bad for the people in the laundromat, they seem to not have much, so I rigged the machine to give 5 quarters for every dollar.

Oh, one time I saw a family of ducks about to walk thru a puddle of gasoline. I tried to speed up my BMW to cut them off - I didn't want them to get sick - but someone cut me off.

Lastly, I asked someone for directions, but then I remembered I had a GPS. He looked so disappointed I pretended I couldn't figure the GPS out.

That's all I can think of for now.

What a bunch of smart alecs But at least you are funny! I wasn't trying to separate things out as much as reminding myself (and others) that it could be a heck of a lot worse and would be if we didn't DO SOMETHING. Hugs.

A pizzeria on Central used to deliver until 2am on weekends. It closed a few years ago but I wish had a list of places too that delivered late.

Now this is interesting.

The Le Grand Blue wiki page now only has the photo - all that data was removed. Apparently today. The ship headed up the East River this morning. And I don't see it on the harbor website either.....

Conspiracy? Russian mafia? Probably not but really strange.

Just Today I was unpacking groceries when a guy pulled up looking for directions to Hoboken. He was an older guy either Arab or Israeli. He then remembered his new GPS and thanked me anyway. Ten minutes later he was still sitting there looking befuddled with the GPS so I jumped in my car and told him to follow me. I took him right to the address he was looking for and we parted ways with a big wave of Thank You.

so basically we're now separating the good part of tommynyc's post (preventing a DUI and helping the community) and leaving it there, and bringing the potential circle jerk aspect to this thread. i'm down

well last weekend i was driving towards newport coming up from hoboken. when i reached about where target is, i noticed the cars had the green light but no one was moving. as i got closer i saw a family of ducks/geese(?) were crossing the road.. kinda like that picture on jclist a few weeks back. anyway, the ducks were going kinda slow, and the mom/dad seemed to be limping so after every kid was done crossing he was still hobbling slowly behind them.

well of course mister BMW behind me cant understand why we're all waiting, so he tried to pass me on the left and potentially run over papa duck. in the heat of the moment, i sped up and cut off his access from the left. he seemed pretty annoyed but i know in my heart i did the right thing.

Edit - dont forget to congratulate the person who posts above you otherwise you ruin the point of the thread. good job tommy, although a bum probably stole the last quarter and used it on drugs.

Who delivers this late? I bet a lot of people would like to keep a list of places that deliver after midnight, since there aren't a lot of food choices around here late.

Okay JerseyCityFrankie - where do you get a good spyglass - and how do you know it's a good one? I just have Nikon binoculars - a spyglass would be fun.

Ex-con Devon Carter charged in Jersey City murder
by Michaelangelo Conte / The Jersey Journal
Monday June 29, 2009, 2:04 PM

An ex-con is back in jail today after being charged with murdering a Jersey City man who was shot in the face at point blank range after being brutally beaten on a Greenville street early yesterday morning, officials said today.

Devon Carter, 25, of Reed Street, was arrested yesterday at the headquarters of the Hudson County Prosecutor's Offices Homicide Unit on Duncan Avenue, officials said

He is charged with murder and weapons offenses in the homicide of Kevin Miller, 28, of Bergen Avenue, who was shot at Bramhall Avenue and Sackett Street at around 2:20 a.m., Hudson County First Assistant Prosecutor Guy Gregory said this morning.

Carter is charged with firing a bullet into Miller's forehead above his left eyebrow that exited his head behind his right ear, Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said. Miller also sustained "relatively minor" marks on his body from the beating, DeFazio said.

Judge Michael L. Ravin set Carter's bail at $750,000 cash only yesterday and Carter will make his first appearance on the murder charges in Central Judicial Processing Court tomorrow, officials said.

Miller was attacked shortly after having an argument with a woman that apparently escalated into a physical confrontation, Gregory said.

Investigators say Carter and at least one other man assaulted Miller, and during the attack Carter allegedly pistol whipped Miller before shooting him in the face, Gregory said.

Prosecutors are reviewing the file to see if anyone else with be charged, Gregory said.

Miller grew up in Jersey City and he attended Lincoln High School, a relative said.

Carter was last in prison Oct. 27, 2006 to March 25, 2008 on convictions for resisting arrest and drug possession, according to state corrections records.

He also has two prior convictions for drug possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, Gregory said, adding that all of Carter's crimes were committed in Hudson County.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office's Homicide Squad at (201) 915-1345.

I heart marybarr ;)

Is this a "pat me on the back" thread? :)

Years ago I put a dollar into a change machine at a JC laundromat, and 5 quarters came out instead of 4. I only took 4 and left the 5th.

Now somebody better pat me on the back!!!

we picked up some eggs and meat from Central Valley Farms along with some other goodies. The eggs were very nice and we are having some ground beef for dinner.
There won't be here next Saturday but they stated that if they get enough support form the community they will continue to sell their goods thru this season.

This is an offshoot of the thread dealing with I Made the Street of JC a Little Bit Safer. I thought we could all respond in a positive manner and this is my last post on that thread and my small example:

Okay, what I got out of the post wasn't that there was a needed pat on the back (but come on, I'll confess if you will that it feels good) but to encourage us to DO SOMETHING. Every thread on every blog I have ever read bitches and moans and few of them come up with a solution or even just a positive thought. Here is my small example: One day I was riding in a friends convertible and saw a big man snatch away an elderly guys cane and go to hit him with it. I jumped over the car door and ran to help. The big guy lowered the cane and the two of them said they were just pals joking around. The big guy asked me what I thought I was going to do anyway. I replied -- whatever I could. Follow your conscience guy and nobody can bother you about THAT. Please give an example even if you fed a stray cat :)

Believe me I have a lot more but I hardly think of myself as Lochinvar, just at one point in my life I placed myself in a position to see worse things than I ever thought possible. Can we just celebrate good stuff and positive action? In fact i am starting a thread right now---GOOD STUFF I HAVE DONE OR ENCOURAGED. Please add your contributions to society, especially in JC :)

Our first instinct is always our finest, born from purity, like giving cash to a panhandler, if we think about it less likely to give. Your action was for the common good and perhaps safety of all of us. Never doubt your instincts.

If its illegal to boot a car, why is the JCPA still booting cars who over stays the 2hr parking?

Re: Lafayette Park Communipaw Neighborhood

I have lived in this area for six months now. I walk home from the light rail alone and feel totally safe there, but I guess it depends on your personal comfort level, it is no Hamilton Park!

The good thing about this area is you can get double the amount of space for less than what you pay in downtown, and its only a mile away!

If everyone had an open mind about places like this, then they would probably revitalize themselves much faster. I would rather live in a diverse up and coming neighborhood then be cramped into a place downtown, but thats just me.

You bring up a good conversation, so as precursor and disclaimer, I'm not trying to nit pick - at least not too much. I agree with most of what you write. I'm also mistaken, giving more thought, what you write is not illogical.

However, the driver as much as he intended to, did not drive the car, so there is no DUI. From the link I provided, public intoxication is not a crime. What then is the JCPD suppose to charge the individual with?

If you use the "guy tripping on his shoe laces" example, then let me take liberty and say perhaps the intended driver was going to commit suicide. That's a felony and then a citizen's arrest is warranted/justified.

Alternatively, if he just let him willingly get in the car and he ended up killing someone or doing property damage $$$, the would-be-good-deeder could be charged as an accessory to a crime. If one thinks that is crazy, it's been done to bartenders. I think I'm done freely speculating.

Anyway, most importantly, I fully agree with: "I'm glad it worked out, glad Tommy did what he did, and hope it doesn't cause him problems."

As I have said twice in this thread, my sole intention was to make people aware that they CAN make a difference and make the streets safer. My story is a first hand example that we can all make a difference in our neighborhood. This particular example was right outside my house, so I took action, because I'm invested in my neighborhood, and I'm interested in making it safer. THAT was the point of my post. If you look at my original post, I even posted the JCPD number in hopes that anybody who DOESN'T have it saved in their cell phones will take the 12 seconds out of their day to save the number.

In retrospect, looking back on my post, I can see why it seems that I'm looking for a pat on my back. That is not why I posted it, honestly. Although like I said - the pats on the back that I HAVE received definitely feel good....I am, after all, human.

Maybe he posted it to alert others to the possibilities and that sometimes people actually do make a difference after reading/watching what others have done. There's a concept for ya eh?

You did the right thing..and you deserve to come on JC list and be recognized for it, don't listen to these goons. Alternatively, getting him out of the car, locking his keys in the car, then getting his reaction on the new iphone and uploading it to youtube would have been priceless, maybe next time huh?

I don't like the answer that "It's too hard for us to pay it back" either, and that isn't what I'm condoning. I'd rather them wholesale say we f'd up we have changed the booting policy, and will now boot correctly.

You do raise an interesting point. While I don't necessarily want the Govt giving money from it's coffers, if a 3rd party did indeed profit from these illegal boots well that is something I can get behind.
