I don't think willie flood should be blamed for what her kid did,nor do i think Healy should be blamed for his a$$hole cousin driving drunk.People should be held responsible for their own actions.

I do believe there is a lack of responsible leadership in this city.If the kids around Floods son all know he's dealing yet he was not arrested why should they obey the law.When the city employee sees their boss (Healy) and his cronies drunk and disorderly on a daily basis why should they follow the rules.

Leadership starts at the top plane and simple.

grovester, doesn't matter which you try first, but definitely try both and report back here.

If you work in Hackensack and haven't been already, you gotta try Lido's (on Main Street in the Fairmont section). It's a no-frills pitcher of beer and pizza kind of place with great thin-crust pizza and the best steak sandwiches anywhere. It's been there forever. I used to go there as a kid and haven't been a while, but I know it's still there. Yum.

Kvetching about condos

Opposition mounts against high-rise residential project at Manischewitz factory

Ricardo Kaulessar
Reporter staff writer


SITE OF CONCERN – The Manischewitz plant, located on Bay Street in Downtown Jersey City will officially close its operations in April. Development company Toll Brothers has plans to build a high-rise luxury tower on the site. Residents say they want more information.
Is it possible to for residents to fight a nationally known developer in order to make a condo building smaller?

Residents of the Powerhouse Arts District (PAD) in Downtown Jersey City are attempting to do so.

They are trying to stop nationally known building company Toll Brothers from constructing a two-tower apartment complex on the site of the soon-to-be former Manischewitz plant on Bay Street. That factory is slated to close in April.

The proposed condo project is being built as a joint effort with Hoboken-based developer Fields Development.

Talk to us, Toll Brothers!

The residents claim that Toll Brothers has put too much pressure on city planners and other city officials to allow them to build higher than what is normally allowed in the PAD.

But first, residents want to know what exactly the developers have in mind.

"All we want is to be included in the conversation," said Richard Tomko, a PAD resident and president of the Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association [PADNA].

The Powerhouse Arts District is a neighborhood that includes a historic former transit powerhouse that the city would like to see converted to a shopping area like the one at Baltimore's inner harbor. The Powerhouse Arts District redevelopment plan governs development projects in the area.

They want to know

The concerned residents say they are also worried that the Toll Brothers project, along with another developer's towers that are being planned for 110 and 111 First St., will ruin the character of the neighborhood.

Tomko, along with the 100-plus members of the PADNA, have been concerned based on what they have been able to find out from various city officials and other sources.

The project consists of the two towers to be built on the Manischewitz site and adjoining property. The project would also entail taking over Provost Street, a three-block marbled cobblestone road, to create a town square plaza since Toll Brothers also owns a parking lot where they plan to build another tower.

The towers and a proposed third, are supposed to be at heights, respectively, of 43, 38, and 36 stories.

The problem, said Tomko, is all residents' speculation, which could be clarified if they knew the developers' intentions.

Toll Brothers' response

A representative for the Philadelphia-based Toll Brothers said last week that they "don't comment on properties going through planning and zoning."

Jim Caufield and his brother Robert run Fields Development, a third-generation Hoboken development company that has several projects ongoing in the PAD.

When Caufield was interviewed in November, he said plans for that project could not be discussed by him.

"There have been at least two meetings scheduled with the developers but both were cancelled at the last minute," said Tomko.

Tomko does not blame Fields Construction, whom he said has been willing in the past to present their projects to PADNA.

"Every new project that came through [the PAD] has been presented before us," said Tomko. "Fields has come before us with a proposed project called 'the Hudson' to be built on the [nearby parking] lot."

Edelstein said Robert Caufield of Fields Development has reached out to PADNA and given the dimensions of the towers. But Tomko said PADNA has not been "given a formal presentation."

Edelstein also said the PADNA has a construction committee that includes her, Simon, and five other residents with backgrounds in architecture who understand how development works.

"We are not anti-development but we are about responsible development," said Edelstein.

Arts district is changing

In the PAD, warehouse buildings are morphing into residential housing and new stores are sprouting up. The area stretches east to west from Marin to Washington boulevards and from north to south from Second to Bay streets.

The taller buildings in the district may be a result of a legal settlement last year between the city and the private developer of 110 and 111 First St.

Last year, PADNA members came out against the settlement, which allowed the owners to build two towers on the properties that could reach higher than 40 and 60 stories.

The First Street buildings were once located in the PAD, but were then placed in a special "Powerhouse Arts Residence Zone" that allows for the larger building heights.

Last week Tomko said the 110 and 111 First St. settlement created a "domino effect," opening the door for other developers to consider doing projects that are less about preserving the existing historic warehouses and more about tearing down and creating anew.

PAD resident Marc Simon said he moved to the district because there is a community feeling. But he doesn't rule out moving away if he sees too many of these towers becoming a reality.

"It was difficult enough moving from Manhattan to Jersey City, but I don't want to live amongst all these tall buildings," said Simon.

City Councilman Steven Fulop, who represents the PAD, said he will continue to work with PADNA to help them with their development concerns. Fulop also had lashed out at the approval of the 110 and 111 First St. settlement and its possible domino effect.

Re: 111 First Street - the teardown
Home away from home
Home away from home


My qualifications to speak on this issue are limited, since I have only arrived in JC last March. I do, however, actually live in this neighborhood- does that qualify me to have an opinion?

I do not understand (actually, I do) why all the name calling and labelling is warrented. What's wrong with being in favor of responsible and reasonable development? And by responsible and reasonable I do not mean seeking technicalities to subvert the democractic process (though any responsible advocate would do the same for their client).

Having been on all sides of the coins involved (winning/losing on technicalities, winning/losing on the merits of the case, settling from a position of strength vs. settling from a position of weakness), I have to say the worst feeling is losing a case that has underlying merit, over technicalities.

Now, if you have the tin-foil ready- there are as I understand it two main ways to lay the under-pinning for a building- drilling and pile-driving.

Pile-driving by definition shakes the ground around the area. It is my understanding that the two row houses on Steuben Street which were recently demolished (and, conveniently, were not included in the zoning for PAD, even though the rest of the block on both sides were), were condemned as structurally unsound as a result of the pile driving of under-pinning for Columbus Plaza (which is across the street).

This site is now being developed into a 7 story condo box by Fields Development.

So my question is, who's responsibility is it to ensure that development in action does not lead to more condemned buildings? On the face of it, your average conspiracy theorist would look at that and say that's a pretty good way of getting your hands on otherwise unobtainable properties- shake the foundation, get it condemned, and buy it on the cheap since the existing structure is no longer viable or safe.

In any event, conspiracy or no, it is completely irresponsible to damage existing structures during construction, I think we could all agree on that, no?

I do seem to recall a fire at 111 First over the Summer that allegedly was started by squatters. Can't help but notice there was never a follow-up story on that event.

On an un-related note but of interest- how many think that 100 years from now the "Newport Historic Association" will be up in arms over plans to tear down the towers in Newport, because they're "historic"?

Mana-a-Manna: White Mana of Jersey City & Hackensack's White Manna

White Manna from heaven

The Record
Sunday, February 18, 2007
JIM BECKERMAN

For a restaurant that measures 15 feet by 30 feet, Hackensack's White Manna sure has a big rep.

Call it history, art, pop culture or just a cheeseburger to make Jimmy Buffett weep. Few are the works of men that have been treasured by so many people for so many reasons.

It has appeared in coffee-table books. It has made any number of "10 Best Burger" lists. It has boasted celebrity customers ranging from Jerry Seinfeld to stars of "The Sopranos." It has attracted historians, nostalgia buffs and all fans of the curious, the quirky and the quintessentially Jersey. Tales of its supposed "rivalry" with its onetime sister restaurant, White Mana of Jersey City, are part of the lore of both cities. A White Manna movie may be in the offing.

To hamburger hoi polloi, a White Manna burger might not seem so different from a White Castle, a White Tower, a White Rose or any of their other sisters in white that sprung up in the 1930s and 1940s (the "white" was a signifier of cleanliness; greasy spoons back in the day were notoriously dirty).
PHOTO GALLERY
DAVE ADORNATO / THE RECORD

Photo gallery: White Manna from heaven

But those in the know say that White Manna is the nonpareil, the hamburger supreme, 95 cents' worth of pure joy with ketchup on top.

"I've never been to another place like White Manna; it's special," says Nick Santora, the writer and co-executive producer of the Fox TV hit "Prison Break" who was introduced to the place by his wife, a Maywood native.

Fans of the mini-burgers, all snug in their little potato rolls, are legion. The White Manna cult knows no age, sex or condition.

"I came here once a week when I was pregnant," says Donna Hatton of Glen Rock, sitting at the counter on a recent Friday afternoon. "I've been coming here since I was 7 years old."

Tales of fanatical consumer loyalty are part of the folklore of the place, run since 1986 by Israeli brothers Ronnie and Ofer Cohen.

No condemned man has ever ordered White Manna as his last meal, so far as anyone knows. But the Cohens have seen just about everything else.

"We had this woman who wanted to stop at White Manna and have a hamburger before she got married," Ronnie Cohen recalls. "So you have three limousines stopping in front of White Manna; everybody jumps in here and has hamburgers. Then the bride gets back in the limousine and gets married."

Naturally, the burgers at the other White Manna – er, White Mana – on Tonnele Avenue in Jersey City also have partisans. The owner, for one.

"They claim their hamburgers are better than mine," says Mario Costa Jr. "But I know my hamburgers are good. The reason I know is that on weekends, the kids come, and they eat the whole hamburger. The kids don't lie."

He can also match the Hackensack location, celebrity for celebrity. Celtics great Larry Bird ate there. Chuck Berry used to stop at the Jersey City Mana -- probably after driving on the New Jersey Turnpike in the wee, wee hours. "He just loved the cheeseburgers," Costa says.

The Jersey City White Mana does have one indisputable leg up on its Hackensack cousin. It was the first.

This very restaurant, with its futuristic round, "flying saucer" design, launched the White Manna franchise with a bang at the 1939 New York World's Fair.

"That's why it's round," says Costa, who has owned the place since 1979. "Everything at the fair was round."

That landmark event, it will be remembered, gave Depression-weary audiences a glimpse of a brighter tomorrow (i.e., 1960) at such attractions as the original "Futurama." No surprise that the humble hamburger got its own visionary makeover.

At White Manna, fairgoers could see how the burger of tomorrow would be cooked – right in front of them, on a grill right next to the counter, from pan to plate in five seconds. It was an early experiment in what would now be called ergonomics.

"It only took one step in either direction to go from the grill to the soda fountain to the customers," says Mark Moran of Weird New Jersey magazine.

The place was such a hit that it was dismantled and brought to Jersey City by Georgia entrepreneur Louis Bridges. To this day it remains, along with Coney Island's Parachute Jump, one of the last relics of what is generally rated the greatest world's fair of them all. "The fair was very influential, and this was a little piece of it," Costa says.

When White Manna reopened in Jersey City in 1946, it had company. That year, Bridges opened four new White Mannas in Springfield, Carteret, Rahway – and Hackensack.

Only Hackensack and Jersey City remain – and only Hackensack in its original pristine form.

By the time Costa started working there in 1972, the Jersey City restaurant had gained an additional seating area. It had also lost an "n" – thanks to some illiterate at the Coca-Cola Co.

"At some point the sign broke, and Coca-Cola gave them new panels for the sign, and when the panels came back, they spelled it wrong," Costa says. "But we never got rid of the sign."

These days, opinion is divided over which restaurant – White Manna or White Mana – has the greater mystique.

Fans of the Jersey City restaurant point to its futuristic shape and historic significance (it was declared a city landmark in 1996).

But Hackensack partisans point out that their restaurant is still in its original, unaltered form. And they also cite the restaurant's tiny size – smaller, even, than Jersey City's flying saucer -- as part of its appeal.

Customers sit virtually on top of one another – and on top of the chef at the center of the action, whose ballet of burger flippings and soda jerkings makes White Manna as much of a culinary sideshow as Benihana.

"It's like a bar in a way," Ronnie Cohen says. "People don't like to drink by themselves. At White Manna, you don't eat by yourself. You interact with the customers and the workers. It's like family."

Die-hard customers certainly think so.

"Everybody talks here because it's so small," says Kathy Callaghan of Wyckoff. "Nothing compares to this place for nostalgia."

And then there are those onions.

"When I go down there, I have to put on different clothes," Santora says. "You don't wear your good clothes to White Manna, because the smell of onions permeates your clothes. It's a great smell."

E-mail: beckerman@northjersey.com

* * *

A White Manna world

How do we love thee, White Manna? Let us count the ways.

# AS CUISINE. White Manna hamburgers regularly turn up on lists of the state's, and even the country's, best burgers. AOL City Guide put White Manna on its "best burger" list three years running. In June 2006, GQ Magazine's Alan Richman listed White Manna's cheeseburger as No. 13 on its list of "The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die."

# AS ART. It's an art-deco icon -- poetry in steel and neon and curvy glass blocks. No surprise that in Americana calendars, studies of retro decor and coffee-table books, White Manna figures prominently. And no surprise that White Manna sells commemorative T-shirts (S, M, L, XL, $10; 2 XL, $12).

# AS AN "IN" SPOT. Stars of "The Sopranos" have been spotted there. So has Jerry Seinfeld, twice. The TV-celebrity publishers of Weird New Jersey magazine, Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran, adore the place.

# AS A POP TOUCHSTONE. The power-punk group After 7 made a video there. AT&T used the restaurant in one of its commercials. So, believe it or not, did KFC (it was making a point about people preferring chicken to hamburgers).

# AS HISTORY. Before "fast food" was even a term, White Manna paved the way with its groundbreaking design that put the kitchen up front with the customers – a novel idea in 1946, when the restaurant first set up shop in Hackensack. By eliminating the middleman – i.e., the waitress – White Manna sped up the time from the grill to the gullet.

# AS DRAMA. A sibling rivalry between White Manna and its onetime sister restaurant, Jersey City's White Mana (both originally part of a franchise, White Manna Systems), was reported by Weird New Jersey in a 1998 article, "A Tale of Two Mannas." The two places are separately owned; both sides claim their hamburgers speak for themselves.

# AS FILM. A movie about Hackensack's White Manna and its customers – tentative title, "White Manna" – is being pitched by Nick Santora, writer and co-executive producer of the Fox TV hit "Prison Break." According to Santora, there is major studio interest.

# AS A SNAPSHOT OF AMERICA. White Manna is right across the street from a McDonald's.

# AS A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. Manna, after all, was food God provided to the children of Israel. "Like wafers made with honey," says Exodus 16:31. Strangely enough, the Bible doesn't mention sauteed onions, a White Manna specialty.

Re: Million dollar settlement over 111 First Street to benefit arts - $330G goes to Museum

Ahhhh, Jersey City.
Sure it's a good thing for the JC Museum and the Loews Theatre to receive funds, and if it is true that Rem Koolhaas is the architect for the new 111 Building, I believe that the city will be getting something worthwhile.
However, for Mayor Healy and Councilman Vega to suggest that 1 million dollars is a good deal for The City and for it's art community is a joke. Not only is the destruction of the warehouse a huge loss for the artist's as studios in a romantic setting, it is also a symbol of the essential abandonment of the Powerhouse Arts District. It sets a new standard and not a good one. This tells developers that the old warehouses that are neighbors to the powerhouse and which are supposed to be protected for the art community, are up for sale to anyone who wants to make a stink. Our city government has made way for the gutting of what could have been an unique and exciting arts center.
The money that is going to The Arts in Jersey City is just a smoke screen for the Mayor and Councilman to hide behind. To speak of themselves as promoters and supporters of the arts is a farce.
Once again the public of Jersey City looses.

It might be a silly idea, but a lot of major private companies and businesses do require a police check and drug test. They can't risk their employee's doing something stupid that could cause any legal or compensation issues for themselves.

What brings you to this dismissive conclusion of historic preservation efforts in Jersey City? If you are truly serious, it certainly is discouraging and if this is a broad perception then it adds another obstacle to any preservation effort of historic resources in Jersey City.

All of the major historic preservation initiatives currently underway involve adaptive re-use of the historic resources, all are promoted by public constituencies and all meet the current accepted standards of historic recognition:

• Powerhouse (commercial and retail)
• Warehouse District (retail and residential)
• Whitlock Cordage (residential)
• Embankment (recreation, park and linkage to East Coast Greenway)
• Bergen Arches (same as Embankment)
• Reservoir #3 (passive park and natural preserve).

A major component of the preservation community’s efforts has been the adaptive reuse of our historic resources and its positive impact on quality of life rather than just for the sake of saving historic relics. Nowhere in Jersey City do I see a “garden of ruins” as the result of historic preservation efforts and Jersey City has lost much more than has been saved (and reused).

Again, why do you (and I have to assume others) not perceive that current historic preservation and conservation efforts as part of our city’s evolution (or the change referenced below).

I think the other problem too is that the preservation crowd in the city is taking a shotgun approach to historical preservation. Apparently, everything with the slightest hint of history needs to be preserved. I think people believe it trendy and cool to fight the good fight, I think people are afraid of change. We don't live in a museum, but a city, an organic machine.

A city is not a park, not a building, not a street. A city is ever changing, an environment in flux, a massive system in motion. Part of that system is preservation and conservation, the protection of the past, but part of that system is also change.....

That psychedelic / boheium look just doesn't do it for me at all.

FAB, I think Binky is on to something big here. This could be a whole new chapter in your life, like you've never dared dream of. This could be bigger than Warhol's Factory. It could be you on that couch fatboy.

Sure we need housing funds.

Just look at the cars we drive or their components, the clothes we wear (check your tags), the computer or t.v we use and just about everything else you touch or use. Its all made overseas by non-skilled or semi-skilled workers that Amercians used to do. Corporations and Governments that are driven by profits are missing the point of maintaining our work force that are given away to other nations in the pursuit of the dollar.

Every aspect of life and living should be subsidized for the individual, like they are for big business by the government.
