Also wondering why these news reports/articles seemingly go out of their way to avoid mentioning the establishments in the vicinity of which these incidents happen. 135 Newark Ave is Porta, so why not mention that?

Article says it happened Friday late night or Saturday morning at Porto (135 Newark Ave) and Two Boots is right next door. If anyone is going by either and wants to ask one of them that could be interesting.

Since they moved to Secaucus, there seemed to be less reporting of crime in Jersey City, especially on the weekends. Does any of the reporters live in Jersey City?

Wouldn't be surprised if they don't cover this. I have noticed over the years they seem to be selective with covering crimes Downtown. Sometimes when they do cover them they don't mention exact locations in the article.

For example they never reported on a man being shot in the Van Vorst Park area a couple months ago.

Jersey City Police are investigating a physical assault on an Uber driver that was reported overnight in the city.

Upon officer's arrival, they found the driver who reported driving for Uber and was attacked by a male shortly before officer's arrival.

The suspect is a heavyset Hispanic male with a bald head and wore a red jersey with a black vest over it.

The driver did not suffer serious injuries.

Regarding the gluten, I overheard the owner say to a customer that they have gluten free.

Went in Saturday morning. It's small. They had 6 people working in that small space. One girl arrived just before me. She ordered two blini. I ordered two blini to stay. There is no air circulation. The place begins to smell and fog up the windows. A gentlemen who just finished his blini left. The table was messy, but no one from the back went to wipe the table down. Client eats, departs, employee must immediately clean and wipe table down. Especially since this gentlemen spilled all kinds of sauces.

The blini took too long for blini. The blini itself was cold, not hot like blini should be. I wouldn't take it to go otherwise it would be cold. Not the food, but the blini itself. I may try the savory sometime, but not the czar something and the salmon one either. Service was friendly enough, but I think they will have a rough go at it.

MrRogers is a paid political operative who lives far from Jersey City. He does not visit JCList to provide or seek neighborly advice or weigh in on the latest pizza shop, as a perusal of his posting history demonstrates. His participation in this thread is by far the most cynical aspect of this entire conversation.

Separately - how do the expressions "Not for Sale James Solomon" and and "Unbought Unbossed James Solomon" necessarily demean Rebecca? It is possible to say those things and merely be pointing out positive attributes about yourself rather than it being an attack on someone else.

The space is pretty tiny. I believe they have just two griddles. It wouldn't make sense to decrease their operating capacity by 50% to handle the off chance they need to serve the single digit percentage which suffers from celiac.

Why? To stay in business... I’m no proponent of the GF fad but I do think it’s a missed opportunity to cater to the DT crowd of such persuasion (plus the marginal group of customers with actual celiac disease).

If you give yourself enough time, here's another relatively seamless method, if you're not concerned about the traffic.

Take the PATH to 33rd, then walk toward Penn Station, and stop at Sbarro's. The NYC Airporter has regularly scheduled buses to JFK from there (make sure you get on the JFK and not the LGA bus). You can buy your ticket ahead of time online, print it out and show the driver, or just pay cash to the driver.

Check out their website for the schedule:

https://www.nycairporter.com/schedule/pennstationtojfkairport/

I've generally been happy with their service, as long as time allowed for it and you can buy a roundtrip ticket to take the service when you come back.


NYC airporter is trash though. And I honestly believe LIRR is faster to JFK once in Manhattan.

Well I have been bullied and called stupid online by Solomon
supporters and I saw someone else in my neighborhood be
bullied by one of them on the Nextdoor app last weekend.
Also I directly commented on a residential issue I have a concern
about and I got ignored by Solomon himself.

Also I saw the following signs posted on a resident fence this morning
"Not for Sale James Solomon" and and "Unbought Unbossed James Solomon"
so that proves to me he is either behind, or supports, the
vicious and untrue campaign attacks on his opponent. Or at
the least it has inspired at least some of his supporters to spread lies
and bully people which he is not getting up and out to stay stop to.

That does not impress me, and that does not represent me, and
I will not be voting for him. I expect candidates to present their
qualifications not tear each other down and I want someone who
will respond to me and listen to me when I have an issue, concern,
etc I want to discuss.

That is my opinion, go talk to the candidates and make your own
personal choice.

Why accommodate another useless fad? Only 1% of the US population is estimated to have celiac disease, while some studies estimate that ~6% of the US population may suffer NCGS. Not sure why anyone would think a restaurant should alter their offerings to satisfy a tiny minority, but hey... GF living for life!

I may be proven wrong, I haven't seen the space or the new sign or anything, but a gay nightclub does not sound like it is in the cards. I'm not sure a nightclub of any kind is in the cards, especially considering that Transmission was shut down and is only doing private events now, from what I've heard.


About Transmission, you heard wrong. They are a weird restaurant/bar combination, and going by Beat Street.

So what are the pros using now?

I hate the way water based looks without stain, pale and cold. Getting a couple of prices now, they seemed to have no problems with the oil base. Should I ask for stain & water base instead? I'd be doing satin anyway, it's show wear less in a rental.

BTW, thanks for the heads up about the low VOC, I'm refinishing the kitchen table and got the high VOC spar finish by looking at the labels.



I just finished putting the second coat of poly using THIS PRODUCT.


I ended up ordering online because every store I checked, only carried low VOC in gallons instead of high VOC in quarts (you can still get it in quart cans). Worse, it seems all the stores carry Minwax or Varthane, neither of which IMO are much good.

This brand I got, Bona, went down perfectly using lamb wool. It self levels, spreads smooth, and dries evenly. The worse part about the low VOC Minwax I used last time: The surface dries, but underneath, it still wet / soft. Even with the room set at over 75 oF+, the stuff would dry in a 24 hour period.

Re: Unsecured Vacant Blighted Buildings

No one seems to be able to help on this. The building has been vacant for at least 7 years, and the new owners (an LLC) have left it in the condition you see in my previous post since they bought it (or transferred to LLC) in March 2017, and in the condition below since removing the siding last week (no other work). According to the muni code, this is a fire hazard:


§ 254-21. - Vacant or boarded structures.

[Added 9-8-1988 by Ord. No. C-807; amended 5-14-2014 by Ord. No. 14-045 ]

A. Any residential or commercial building or structure in the City of Jersey City remaining vacant or boarded for a period exceeding six (6) months shall be deemed a fire hazard and unsafe.

B. If any residential or commercial building or structure remains vacant or boarded for more than six (6) months, the Director of Housing Code Enforcement or his or her designee shall serve upon the owner, agent or person in control of the building or structure a written notice describing the building or structure and requiring the owner, agent or person in control of the building or the structure to abate this condition by taking one (1) of the following corrective measures within six (6) months of the date of written notification.

(1)Actual and legal occupancy of the building or structure, which occupancy shall be made only after obtaining a certificate of occupancy.

(2)Submission of a fully executed and binding contract of sale for the building, which contract shall contain a clause advising the prospective purchaser that occupancy must be achieved within six (6) months of the service of the written notice specified above.

(3)Demolition of the building or structure, upon obtaining the necessary demolition permit(s).

(4)Any other action required or necessary to render the building or structure safe and in a habitable condition.

PATH to 33rd, walk to Penn Station, LIRR to Jamaica, JFK AirTrain. :(


Hands down the best solution available. Seriously, don't even bother looking for alternatives. It is 75-90 minutes from DTJC to JFK. I have done it multiple times, without issues. During weekends it is cheaper, as you can take advantage of the LIRR CityTicket option, which means you pay ~4.00 for the LIRR, plus PATH, plus AirTrain. About $12 in total. I have done it before in 75 minutes, but it depends on connections and a bit of luck. Worst case scenario, barring any crazy, unexpected problems, it will take you 90 minutes.




Yes, best route during normal business hours, not that swell during off hours.

Well, if you don't have kids I guess this is something you can do. Kudos to them for living on so little money, except for the fact that they eat out of garbage cans. While I've been very frugal myself, I draw the line at stuff like that. Dumpster diving is just not my thing. I would enjoy the opportunity to occasionally stay at a $13 million loft though.

Jennifer Liepen and Sandy Patch own a $345,000 house in Jersey City that they’ve never lived in — which might not be so unusual, except for the fact that they don’t have any other home.

“We’re nomads,” Patch told The Post. “[We’re] moving to where resources are at any given time.”

Instead, the married couple moves into a different NYC apartment every week or so. As pet sitters, Liepin, 32, and Patch, 33, crash for free at various clients’ apartments and care for cats and dogs while their owners are out of town.

The pair allow themselves a combined weekly budget of just $100. Patch said they have saved “close to $50,000” apartment-hopping for the past two years.
