Seagull's comments are the first positive comments I've ever heard about Rochester.

Count me into the group that's confused by why TJ's doesn't come here. I think they would do so well if placed in a walkable area.

I am actually going to Rochester next week on business. Never been there before, but looking forward to it. Since this thread is going nowhere anyway, I thought I'd ask an off-topic question - any recommendations regarding restaurants there? Steak or seafood.

I hope they can throw the entire book of charges at these scumbags. The 10% carjackers are at least guilty of armed robbery and probably guilty of homicide in some cases. Everyone in this car-theft ring should get charged with murder if there was one victim that was killed imo.

Kodak is gone, but I'll tell you something. Rochester, and the people of that city have survived and continue to thrive. Like I mentioned before, the quality of life there is much higher than it is in JC.

-Restaurants and food markets that would make any JC resident jealous
-Secondary schools that are well-placed in the various national rankings
-Vibrant cultural scene, particularly music with their annual jazz fest every year (I know, Groove on Grove is great and all lol)
-Dozens of colleges and universities in the area
-Great weather in the summer and a real winter which the municipalities are well-prepared to handle
-Very short commuting times and very inexpensive cost of living (15% below the national average)

I commend you for sticking up for JC, but like I said before, it doesn't even touch Rochester, NY and that's a fact.

Oh, and before you pull the whole race card and blame racism for all of life's problems, I just want to point out that according to the 2010 Census, the city's population was 43.7% White, 41.7% Black in Rochester. That's a 2% difference compared to Jersey City's 6.82% difference with a 32.67% (80,885) White, 25.85% (64,002) Black population. I guess that theory doesn't pan out now does it?

Man, was I wrong.
the garden store by the exit from the Holland Tunnel has these containers that are completely overflowing with live ladybugs. It's kinda gross actually, since there are so many ladybugs in there, they start crawling over the dead corpses of their lady brethren. But if you want a quick infusion of live ladybugs to kill off your aphids, that's a good place to go! No shipping time, no breeding time, no nothing!

Focus their store map at the DC- Baltimore area, and tell me what it says to you. Look at any area elsewhere that you're familiar with the demographics. http://www.traderjoes.com/stores/index.asp In our area there's a 20 mile diameter hole in the map from Bayonne to Paterson that there's apparently no plan to fill. Minorities may love TJ's but it doesn't look like the feeling is mutual.

If I were a retailer of non-luxury grocery goods I'd look for the highest density areas I could find, the more customers within a short drive the higher the sales. Then why put a store out in Florham Park instead of in JC, the 2nd densest city in the US? That's in Morris County, with 4/5 the population of Hudson and 8 times the size. What MBA would make this decision?

DOJ Alleges New Jersey Tech Consulting Firm Fired Receptionist Who Complained About Excluding U.S. Job Applicants

FORBES - 5/23/2012

If you visit the “About Us” page of Whiz International LLC of Jersey City, NJ, this is what you learn:

Sounds pretty impressive. An American consulting firm based in Jersey City, NJ, servicing the technology needs of international clients. Just the kind of business that should be employing U.S. citizens and helping to bring us out of the recession. Even better, Jersey City is just across the river from Ground Zero — what better place to plant the seeds of our economic recovery?

But, you know, these days, “impressive” only gets you so far. There’s form and then there’s substance.

And then there’s a page on the United States Department of Justice’s website that informs us that on May 22, 2012, DOJ file a lawsuit against Whiz International LLC, alleging that the company violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act when it terminated an employee in retaliation for expressing opposition to Whiz’s alleged preference for foreign nationals with temporary work visas. The Complaint seeks civil damages, a court order prohibiting future discrimination, and monetary damages to the employee. According to the litigation press release:


The complaint alleges that the company directed an employee that served as a receptionist and a recruiter, to prefer certain noncitizens in its recruitment efforts and then terminated the employee when she expressed discomfort with excluding U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents from consideration. The anti-discrimination provision prohibits employers from retaliating against workers who oppose a practice that is illegal under the statute or who attempt to assert rights under the statute.

NOTE: A Complaint merely contains allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Sometimes letting nature just take it's course works. The predators will discover the feast of aphids you have and the problem will go away. I once noticed my peach trees heavily infested with aphids, soon enough they were gone. I rarely spray anything. I did put out slug bait after they ate several of my cuke starts down to stubs.

Years ago I released ladybugs, and I often order mantis egg cases, because they're simply the coolest creatures around. They're dubiously beneficial because they'll eat everything good or bad, bees, whatever, they don't care. It's real fun for the kids to catch one and feed it flies till it dies in the fall, as they all do.

Jersey City mayor, City Council members clashing over police director appointment
Home away from home

Jersey City mayor, City Council members clashing over police director appointment

May 23, 2012, 5:58 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy and members of the City Council remain at an impasse today over the legality of Healy’s recent appointment of an interim police director, with council members saying they must approve the action and the mayor’s legal team insisting Healy has the final say-so.

Councilman at large Rolando Lavarro is leading the charge for his allies on the nine-member body, saying city code prevents the mayor from appointing another interim replacement for former police director Sam Jefferson without council approval.

The city wants “free reign,” Lavarro said today.

Police Chief Tom Comey had acted as police director on an interim basis since Jefferson’s February retirement. When Healy moved to make Comey the police director until Healy’s term expires next year, the council balked, rejecting Comey’s appointment by a 5-4 vote.

Healy appointed Deputy Police Chief Peter Nalbach as interim police director last week, then withdrew the appointment due to concerns about Nalbach acting as Comey's subordinate and director. This week, Healy made a third interim appointment, Assistant Business Administrator Robert J. Kakoleski.

Now Lavarro and his allies on the council say Healy can’t appoint Kakoleski without the council's consent.

“That’s why we have these checks and balances in place,” Lavarro said, adding that Healy’s picks haven’t met the “certain criteria” he’s looking for, such as increasing foot patrols and increasing the number of African American supervisors.

City code permits the mayor to appoint interim city directors for 90 days “unless the council shall, by resolution, authorize one or more extensions thereof.” Corporation Counsel Bill Matsikoudis, in a written opinion sent to the council today, said he interprets that passage to mean the mayor can appoint different interim directors every 90 days if he so wishes.

“Where the council declines to approve a permanent appointment, or an extension of an acting appointment for an additional period time, (city code) compels, not prohibits, the mayor to appoint someone new in an active capacity,” he writes.

Allowing the position to remain vacant, Matsikoudis writes, would “undermine the operation of the police department.”

Regarding Lavarro's comments on the criteria he wants the new police director to meet, Healy said in a statement that assigning officers to foot patrols is a prerogative of the police chief, not director.

"As for African Americans and other minorities, we have actively recruited minorities from across our city preceeding my tenure as mayor and as I sat on the City Council, and we continue to do so," Healy said. "Regarding superior officers, we are subject to the various rules and regulations of the civil-service system of the state of New Jersey."

Walking into a gate is clearly a stupid move. Whomever it was wasn't paying attention. Texting, drunk, born stupid, whatever.

There was a sidewalk heave on York where the streetlight would cast a shadow over the heave at night. About 6" wide, perfectly over the lifted sidewalk. It claimed my gf three times before she learned to lift her feet.

Everyone looks out for the errant dog pile or bit of debris when walking. A gate is no different. Your chipped tooth friend learned a valuable lesson.

On another car related point. The police could easily reduce crime and raise revenue if they just stopped and towed every car with overly tinted windows. You're not allowed to have the front windows tinted and yet tons of cars have them. Its already illegal to have the windows who knows what else they do.

While most get stripped, a lot more then you may think are never even recovered at all. In 2010 a little over 27% of carjacked cars were never recovered, in 2009 a little over 36% were never recovered. So in those 2 years 413 cars simply vanished, no recovered stripped frame or anything.

Ring that stole cars worth $6 million and shipped them to Africa is busted in Newark
Home away from home
Home away from home


Published: Wednesday, May 23, 2012, 5:00 PM Updated: Wednesday, May 23, 2012, 6:18 PM

By Jason Grant/The Star-Ledger


NEWARK — At a joint news conference held today in Newark, federal, state and local authorities announced the bust up of a major international car-theft ring that focused on stealing scores of cars from the greater New Jersey and New York area before then smuggling the vehicles into West Africa, where the cars were often sold to buyers for considerably less than their retail values. Resized Image

Touting the dismantling of a sophisticated, multi-layered theft-and-smuggling operation, J. Gilmore Childers, the first assistant U.S. attorney for New Jersey, joined representatives of more than 10 law enforcement agencies in announcing that federal charges had been brought against 19 people. At the same time, he and other law enforcement speakers noted that their coordinated 1 ½-year investigation had led to the recovery of more than 200 vehicles estimated to be worth more than $6 million.

“This was a lucrative operation that is now closed for business,” Childers said while other law enforcement officials flanked him, including the director of federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement and a lieutenant colonel from the State Police, two of the law-enforcement organizations said to also be major players in the takedown.

“The ripple effect of the exportation of stolen vehicles is extensive,” Childers added. “Naturally, those most affected by the theft are the legitimate owners of the vehicle, who are deprived of their vehicles. Society as a whole is affected because of the impact these automobile thefts have on the price of insurance for all of us.

“But the ripple effects don’t stop there,” he went on. “Those who buy, sell and export stolen vehicles are helping to finance gang activity,” he said, explaining that generally the criminals who originally stole the cars from the streets and elsewhere were gang members or associates.

Childers also noted that the stolen cars themselves often included “high-end” vehicles such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus, Audi, and Land Rover. And, he said, while some of those cars may have retailed for $50,000 or $60,000, often the end-buyer in West Africa would get such a car for perhaps $25,000 or $35,000. In addition to the more high-end cars, Toyotas and Hondas were also part of the theft-operation, he said.


Officials said that 11 of the 19 defendants charged today in Newark federal court were arrested this morning in a sweep that spread throughout New Jersey and New York. A twelfth defendant is already in state prison on unrelated charges, they added, while the others remain at large.

According to a press release put out today by the office of U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, the joint law enforcement investigation found that numerous people had worked to illegally export, or attempt to export, stolen cars through the seaports in Newark and Elizabeth, to various countries overseas, including to Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Gambia, all in West Africa.

Citing the criminal complaints, Fishman noted that “the overseas market for stolen and carjacked vehicles is growing,” and he said that “to fill this growing demand, the defendants have joined a criminal organization that involves the theft, carjacking, sale, receipt, transportation, interstate trafficking and illegal exportation of stolen and altered motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts.”

He also said that the organization — which officials at the press conference noted had various factions and was not finite in its numbers or participants — was extensive and generally operated in multiple layers.

The layers, Fishman’s office said, included people, usually gang members or associates, who steal motor vehicles — and officials at the news conference noted that out of the 200 or so cars recovered in the investigation, some 10 percent of them had been carjacked.

The second layer of the criminal operation, Fishman said, included “fences,” groups of criminals who would buy the stolen vehicles for just a few thousand dollars, even if it was a brand new luxury vehicle worth tens of thousands of dollars.

A fence, he added, typically employs “runners” who drive the stolen and carjacked vehicles from one location to another to avoid detection and who collect payments from the sales of the vehicles.

A third layer in the complex operation, Fishman added, included criminals who would “retag” the vehicles after they were stolen or carjacked. That process, he said, still citing the complaints, involved altering the Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs), the unique serial number used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicles.

And part of that retagging would typically take place in parking lots, in garages and even on the streets, he added.

In addition to altering the VIN on stolen or carjacked vehicles, the members of the criminal outfit would also obtain a counterfeit Certificate of Title for stolen vehicles to match the new or fictitious VIN.

Next, for layer four of the enterprise, the cars would be sold to customers who would either purchase the vehicle for his or her use in the United States or overseas — or the cars would be sold to people who ship stolen and carjacked vehicles to other countries, Fishman said.


Finally, for layer five, Fishman said, criminals would coordinate the exportation of stolen vehicles, shipping them abroad through a non-vessel operating common carrier while using falsified shipping documents.

At the center of the smuggling and shipping end of the operation, Fishman said, was an outfit run by 42-year-old defendant Hope Kantete — a.k.. “the Lady” — from Brooklyn. She ran a large-scale fence with an extensive customer base overseas, he added. And Kantete bought stolen and carjacked vehicles not only from street gang members, but also from other fences, then had the vehicles retagged and shipped overseas or sold them to people who would make their own shipping arrangements.

Eleven of the 19 defendants appeared this afternoon in Newark before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Falk. Many of them, most of whom live in New Jersey —including many in Jersey City — are facing charges of conspiracy to transport stolen vehicles and charges of transportation of stolen vehicles and aiding and abetting in the transportation of stolen vehicles, federal authorities said. The conspiracy charge carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison, while the other charges each carry a maximum of 10 years in prison, authorities said.

Hi MDM,

Congratulations on your rooftop garden! My dear old dad taught me some wonderful organic gardening tips back when I was a kid. They are easy and relatively inexpensive.

For vegetables, try some companion gardening techniques -
marigolds planted alongside of tomato plants work wonders!

Learn about companion planting here.

Also, you can order your own set of ladybugs which will naturally demolish your aphids in a matter of days. It is really cool to release them and watch them in action.

Order your ladybugs here.

Good luck!

A parking issue? With some of the best mass transit access in the state and huge, empty parking garages all over the downtown, there is no dearth of parking in Jersey City.

Food trucks and bike lanes a Portland Or. we ain't. Although I wish we were. Can the food trucks be trusted though ?

SHUT UP and GET REAL!!! Don't you suppose all the criminal activity makes JC look like a bad investment to upscale retailers??

I am so sad to hear that it is only a rumor. I so want a TJs to come here. Whole Foods is just way to expensive....and a Costco would be cool because....BJs has really gone down hill. Whatever happened to to those yummy kosher hot dogs??? So awesome!


Forget population density.....we have yuppie overload in JC and still no TJs. :(
