Re: Taste of India at Newport Centre Mall

Home away from home


Don't want to ruin anyone's opinion of the place, I personally have gone there dozens of time and only loved the food and service, but just wondering if anyone else has had this experience.

Two people I know have gone there and both have gotten sick to the point of having to leave work the next day. 2 days ago, I guess.

Again, don't want to ruin anyone's opinion of them, I will certainly go there again, but if anyone else has gotten sick lately, it might be from there.

I'm very happy with them. I've never been to an absolutely perfect place. Love the charm and the food is heavenly in my opinion. Carmine's is also very good but I personally prefer 2nd Street and wish them well. Find me in the line because for me they are worth the wait.

Re: Sandwiches from an Heirloom - Second Street Bakery

Just can't stay away


Been going to Second Street for over ten years --- for regular walk-in orders as well as for call-ahead takeout platters.

To be honest, I think they’ve been slipping the past couple of years. The sandwiches used to be loaded with a lot more meat than they are now. Also, the rolls used for sandwiches have been way too hard ---- and it’s not like I’m showing up at the end of the day and therefore getting the last and oldest of the batch.

To be sure, the matriarch of the family still works the counter like a champ, but it would be delightful to have a “roll line.” Some folks just want to pop in for a few off-the-rack stuffed rolls sitting right within reach --- all of a 30-second transaction --- and yet have to wait fifteen minutes behind a line of sandwich orders. That in and of itself wouldn’t be a big deal, but she sometimes doesn’t move on to taking the next order until she’s cleared the deck of pending sandwich orders being made. The net result is that you often have half of the crowded area waiting for orders they’ve placed and the other half still standing waiting to place an order (which could be an ultra-quickie for stuffed rolls).

Basically, at traditionally crowded times, they should get a second person behind the counter. It would help them in the long run because people often leave when they see the line too long (as I have done).

Re: Is Jersey City Ready For A Food Coop?

The decision to research the viability of a food coop in Jersey City was made after a few neighborhood meetings - primarily in the Ward F community. While our group of <20 persons is committed to seeing this idea through to completion, we thought it would be great to reach out to all Jersey City residents, check for interest and hopefully increase member numbers -- for there is much work to do....

We have spoken with successful food coops in the area (Park Slope & George Street) and they are very willing to assist us....
As referenced by "itgirl" earlier, the Food Coop 500 is committed to increasing the number of food coops in the US from approx 350 to 500 by 2015. They too are willing to help provide guidance to our group and when avail, seed money for the project.

We have a lot of information to share with those who are truly interested in working to see this through…But ultimately it will require a serious commitment and LOTS of patience. It takes approx 2 years to complete all the work necessary to finally open the doors of the coop.

We believe that if we put our heads together and combine our talents the Jersey City Food Coop will become a reality.


If interested or intrigued at all, please visit our FACEBOOK group page –Jersey City Food Coop Initiative - for info on meeting schedule.
Just to prepare you – our FB page leaves a lot to be desired…so we’re accepting all suggestions that will better communicate our idea. And we definitely welcome members with strong technical skills!

Jersey City- Traffic/Highway
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hey Everyone,

New to downtown JC and had a question regarding traffic into/out of downtown Jersey City.
What is the best way to drive to Fort Lee or Northwest Jersey?
Google Map has me heading through:
*County Rd 617/Summit Ave
*Tonnelle Ave/US-1 N/US-9 N

I want the fastest way possible and avoid local roads in Jersey City. I would appreciate everyone's insight into the traffic pattern of the area.

Much Thanks,

Dan

Bryant Park in New York is a free hotspot. As far as I know public masterbating and gang flash mob thefts haven't gone up.

This would be a great thing for our city, despite your irrational, fear-based theories of the sixties gone amuck on the city hall steps.

All I'm saying is, I know that I wouldn't feel safe having my wife pushing my kid's stroller down grove street with all the riff raff that the googlenet will attract. I agree that we need to move our city forward, but I think we have too many inhabitants that arent mature enough for that yet.

I'm friendly with some of the immediate family of one of our councilman, and I will certainly do what I can to influence that vote against this

Re: City Budget Suggestion Box - Cost Cutting and Revenue Generating Ideas
Home away from home
Home away from home


we need our state reps to wake up and get on it!

from OneJC site -

http://onejerseycity.org/?p=804


Your Taxes – Fire and Police Contracts

Reform Arbitration Process for Public Safety Employee Contracts

Inevitably, when dealing with our municipal budget, our city officials throw up their hands and say that public safety makes up around 45% of our operating budget and there is nothing that can be done about it. Under the current process, city administration and unions negotiate labor contracts. After two rounds of counteroffers, unions can push the negotiations to binding arbitration. The arbitrator must be agreed upon by both parties.

The current process has a strong bias in favor of the fire and police unions and does not give adequate consideration to general economic conditions or the supply and demand for such public safety jobs. Nor is benchmarking permitted with comparable communities across state lines. Arbitrators should be free to compare labor contract terms with those in places like New York City to gather data on regional compensation.

Now there is something that YOU can do to improve the binding arbitration process so that YOUR city can negotiate fair and appropriate public safety contracts.

Three bills pending in the state legislature will help reform the current flawed process of negotiating and awarding public safety contracts:

A2971 requires Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) arbitrators to make certain financial disclosures public. By insuring transparency of arbitrators’ financial holdings, their impartiality will be reinforced.

A2972 requires arbitrators to be randomly selected by PERC rather than by the bargaining parties. This will avoid the “blacklisting” of arbitrators by either party in the arbitration.

A1829 requires the arbitrator to consider eight criteria, including total compensation, economic conditions, and impact to the taxpayer. The bargaining parties are given the opportunity to present testimony on the ability of the county or municipality to afford the financial terms of an arbitrated contract.

what a f*cking moron! I understand that we have all made some drunken mistakes (particularly around college age and below) but by 7:00 in the morning this dude should have been sober enough to realize that having sex with any girl who will let him put it in the back door after just meeting him is not the kind of girl you want to go back bareback with- she is either a total whore (pardon the word) or a tranny.

Just go home and take care of yourself at that point, thanking god you didn't make a terrible mistake.

Great to see JC getting some print time out in California though.

Thanks! Since I posted, found a link to the Division of Parks and Forestry and requested that they trim the tree on the sidewalk.

I'll call the J.C. Housing Code Authority tomorrow. I'm trying to avoid having to pay for it since I already had to pay for my brand new roof to be repaired and it is not my responsibility.

I have to disagree with the OP and some of the supporters on this thread. Jersey City is NOT the ideal candidate for this Google Internet Service. Unfortunately, I fear that there are a disproportionate number of people in our area who would abuse the service, and take advantage of the opportunity for technological advancement and growth. It's sort of the same reason that we don't want a White Castle on Grove Street. Imagine your children, walking past city hall, only to be subjected to junkies pleasuring themselves to mobile porn, or Latin King members using the googlenet to perform coordinated attacks against bodegas. It might take a while before it gets to that point, but I genuinely believe it's a possibility, and should not be taken as an exaggeration

If the tree is on the sidewalk call the J.C. (DPW) Div. Parks & Forestry (201) 547-4449. If it is on your neighbor's property then either call the J.C. Housing Code Authority (201) 547-4825 or you can trim it yourself if the branches are hanging over your property line.

TREEESSSSS!!

Happy Tuesday!!


I don't know where to post this, so I thought here would suffice...

My neighborS' seriously both sides AND another house 2 doors down) backyard trees are extremely overgrown and touching my house. I have also had to have my roof/skylights fixed because twigs and leaves from these trees are falling on my roof -- has anyone dealt with this and have any suggestions on how to address this?

My neighbors are older and been living there a long time so I don't know if they have the $$ to trim/cut their trees if I asked them. I don't mind contributing toward the cost (but really don't want to because these are NOT my trees), so I would love to avoid having to shell out the money.

Does JC have a department that I could call to assist?

Also, the tree in front of my house (on the sidewalk) is also overgrown..anyone know if this a JC or ForF(i.e. my)problem....

Thanks!

Re: Is Jersey City Ready For A Food Coop?

Just can't stay away


I've actually been thinking seriously about one for some months now, as I think a retail co-op would be good for the city, and for my neighborhood especially. I have recently joined the E.4th Street Food Co-op to get some practical experience in working a retail co-op. I think Purple Dragon is a great idea but appeals to the usual demographic--those who are already minded to actively seek such a place. A retail presence, I think, will have broader appeal. Also, I may be mistaken in how Purple Dragon works, but I think you have limited control over what you receive and when. A retail outlet is, of course, more convenient. I'm sure other shares/coops have great offerings, but a retail co-op can provide more than fresh produce/groceries. It can also be a source for nutritional supplements and information, organic health and beauty aids, education, community events, etc.

The Farmers markets are great and should be supported, but they are not available every day or throughout the year (again, convenience), and only offer discounts to those who are on assistance. A coop can work year round with a greater variety of local farmers.

I'd be interested in joining a local meetup to discuss startup plans. The Food Co-op 500 site is also a great resource for planning a retail co-op and can help with seed money, etc. if we have practical plans in place.
