It's because some ppl on here are not fair. Some hate the ZH attire policy; they think it is racist, so they will badmouth ZH by calling it obnoxious, which is total BS.

They can call it racist (I won't disagree, and I don't have the facts to argue otherwise), but obnoxious it is not. It is very quaint and patron-friendly, as beer gardens go, actually.

Assuming, of course, that one gets through security.


You've probably never been there on a Friday or Saturday night. It's more "Club Beer Garden" than an actual beer garden. The Pilsner Haus in Hoboken is everything I expected Zeppelin to be, but alas you have to go to Hoboken to have a more authentic beer garden. Go figure.

I am sure he was still there the next day. Didnt bother to notify PD because they would not have shown up anyway. Not sure we really have a PD in JC.

Based on those photos, those trees looked completely dead. If they'd fallen and landed on a house, car or a person, then you'd complain that they did nothing about the dead trees. Now you complain that they cut trees down. If you have proof that people live there illegally, then go file formal complaints at the appropriate outlets.

You live in a town that is notorious for car theft and theft in general. No matter how many times you tell people not to leave valuables in their cars, they still do. Then they act surprised and angry when the theft occurs. It's like going on an african safari with steaks dangling off you. Then when you get attacked, you can't understand why. A little common sense goes a long way in this world.

Really?
What bugs me most is this:
The camera at Jersey and Columbus only photographs infractions on Jersey Ave as drivers cross Columbus.
All those drivers going to and from Goldman Sachs or taking the shortcut to the tunnel can run red lights at 40mph with impunity. And the busses, along with everyone else, can make the right-on-red with no stop to go north on Jersey, completely clogging the block before Newark and preventing northbound traffic on Jersey from entering the intersection.
God forbid local traffic trying to cross CCD on a too-short light should interfere.


Absolutely false. I saw a woman heading west on Columbus run the light, flash went off and then a cop happened to be there and pulled her over further down Columbus.

Yes I do realize that. However "louisiana inspired pizza" sounds about as as good "Jamaican whitefish salad"

I agree entirely. I bet half the restaurants in this town wouldn't pass an inspection. But it's easier to write tickets for this stuff than to actually do anything worthy. You know... like stop open drug dealing on the streets. I guess that would mean the cops would have to stop the car, get out, and put themselves in potential harm.

Yeah ok that makes sense. Hoboken has no loud bars eh? The outdoor space of zeppelin faces the light rail tracks and then open space behind that. Stop trying to make it sound like it's on the corner of Erie and 5th street. I'm sure the developer could have put it in Greenville, but from a business standpoint we all know how smart that would've been.

They are rentals. When it first opened, it was almost understandable. If you blindly move in above a place of that size without scoping it out first, talking to people and generally doing just a tiny bit of research, then you deserve what you get.

Oh yes, Ibby's is not halal, and yes I agree, Grand Sichuan is better than most chinese around here. The Krave truck is gone. No more walks to the pier to eat. You could always try something else. Although, I'll have to take your side here, there really aren't a lot of restaurants or trucks down there in the evenings. Exchange Place really is a 9-5 area now. Once again, this town seems to take one step forward and then seven steps backward. Somehow it works in Brooklyn, Hoboken, but not here. Nope. Can't have anything that would enhance the quality of life. Have to drag that out for 10+ years.

Last I had heard, you could buy beer/wine in grocery stores in New Jersey. The only catch was that each store can only have 2 licenses, or something like that. There's an A&P in north jersey somewhere that sells beer/wine. Essentially Shop Rite sells it in the store. Beer, wine AND liquor. You just don't pay for it at the main register.

And yes, the pumping your own gas law has got to be one of the stupidest things an individual state can do. Because you know... the states are smarter... like health insurance... "In 1951, though, the Supreme Court of New Jersey decided it was too dangerous to allow just anyone to pump gas, suggesting that the process of refueling is best left to the professionals."

Oh god. It's a food truck. Are there any other halal food trucks around? Not that I know of. Ibby's had a monopoly on this stuff. Then Gypsy Grill came. So now a food truck that serves halal is all of a sudden over saturation? What we don't need is another asian "style" place. More, Wild Fusion, Sawadee, Box, Grand Sichuan, and all the other sushi places.. all within about a 2 block radius.

Mr_Johnson you have a valid point. But what exactly is a city? A shareholder has a stake in a corporate. Similarly a propert-tax paying citizen has a stake in the city. A city is made up of its citizens and it's nothing wrong if they don't like someone spoiling a part of it. But people should use their judgement while confronting such people as it might be dangerous. Although I would have pointed it out to the person not picking up his dog's poop at that time only and not run after him later on.


That's my point. I'm not saying if you witness a blatant crime, such as a rape in progress on a city street, you should just walk by and say it's not my business. Sure he has a right to be upset and angry about the guy not picking up after his dog. It's the way he went about it. I've seen kids throw trash on the street just a few feet away from the trash can. I brought it to their attention that a trash can was right there, and they picked it up and disposed of it. Could they have been aholes and beat me up? Sure. But I really didn't give them a good reason to. Had I picked up the trash and shoved it at them and put it back in their face, then maybe they might not have been so accommodating.

I'll actually side with him on this. You have every right to own a harley, ride it, park it, etc. You have every right to be angry if someone damages it, makes stereotypes about you owning one, and even angry to see dog poop around it. But when your hobby is reading on your porch, and you see something that annoys you, that is not happening on your property, and then feel the need to play tough guy/cop with people, that's when it's not your right. I see crackheads all over the place. I see parents yelling and smacking their kids too. Is it something I like to see and witness? No. If those people came into my house and started smoking/dealing crack, or hitting their kids in my house (on my owned property), then I would react accordingly. Can you sort of see where this is going?

The fact that you could derive pleasure from a right and just individual being "clocked" by a wrong-doer tells me all I need to know about you. My guess is you are: young and disrespectful, NOT a homeowner, do NOT pay taxes, do NOT clean your own house (oh yeah, it's NOT yours), are NOT friendly with your neighbors or even care to know who they are, and most of all, one of these A-Holes who don't pick up after their dog. If you stand for all that is illegal and unjust, here's an idea: don't advertise it. Instead, take a shower, pull your pants up and put a belt on, find a clean shirt and comb your hair. Act and dress respectable and you may just get some in return.


First of all you don't know me in the slightest bit. I would also like the sidewalks to be gum free, the branches trimmed, the subway platform heated and air conditioned. But you know what. THEY AREN'T MY HOME! YOU sound like one of these people that believes the world should revolve around them. If they don't dress, act and look the way you do, then they aren't worthy. But I have no idea because I don't profess to know you. As I said earlier, it really sounds like you need a hobby, or a vacation.

There is no doubt that these drivers are avoiding Holland Tunnel traffic. I know this becuase if the holland tunnel is backed up the exit increases in exiters.

Has any authority considered having a toll there?
If the driver exits off 14C and then reaches the Holland Tunnel toll within a specific amount of time they are charged.

Proceeds would then go to Jersey city since we see increased traffic.

Just a thought. at the very least it would decrease traffic.
lets face it their not stopping at wonder bagel for breakfast.

Should I pay 10K in taxes to allow someone who doesn't to SHIT on my home? I guess I should've sat there and done nothing. Nobody enforces this law, obviously; sometimes it's up to the citizens to correct the actions of lawbreakers, especially when it directly affects my quality of life!! Just think, if everyone did what I did these wrong-doers may think twice before doing it again. I didn't tar and feather him, I handed him the feces of HIS animal in front of his own home. BTW his final resonse was, as I walked away: "YOU'RE RIGHT, YOU'RE RIGHT!" If it's only feces, then perhaps he could have chosen to let the dog shit in front of his own house and HE could spend the next week looking at it, stepping in it and smelling it. Actually, why leave the house, why not let the dog crap IN his house? I have to say, I really disagree with you on this. This country was founded on the average citizen taking up arms and protecting their property and rights, or did you not pay attention in history class and don't know much about the American Revolution? Do you know how ordinary farmers armed themselves with rakes and anything they could find to fight off the biggest and strongest army of the day; all for what they believed in? Or are you one these disgusting human beings with no regard for anyone else on this planet but yourself? I believe in the right to a FECES-FREE home sir, and I will communicate that to anyone who tries to change it.


So you live in the ALLEY? YOU said the dog took a crap in the ALLEY BEHIND MY HOME. You did NOT say the dog walked in your house and crapped on your floor. You did NOT say the dog walked on your porch/stoop and took a crap. You DID say the ALLEY. Now I don't know you, and maybe the alley behind your house is the only one I haven't seen in Jersey City, but every other alley I've seen, is just that. AN ALLEY. Should it be litter, dog feces free? YES. Should you go run out to the alley, pick up dog crap, run down the street, find the guy and hand it to him? Be my guest. I would however get a good chuckle when/if you do do it to the wrong person and they turn around and clock you. All over a turd in an alley. Maybe you should get a stress-relieving hobby.

It is NOT! For some reason, I let it go and didn't say anything. Ten minutes later, unable to concentrate on my book, unable to accept the audacity of this A-hole, I got up, scooped it up (with a plastic bag) and walked down Monmouth Street looking for him. I caught him walking into his home next to The Barge Inn. I politely walked over to the elderly man, handed him the bag of shit, and said, "You forgot THIS!" If you own a dog, please be respectful. I am not the only one around here tired of this disrespectful behavior. Please be kind, or beware. Next time I might feel the need to throw it at the culprit.


While you are correct in being angry about this, if you continue to to use this as your method of "correcting" people's actions, you will soon do this to the wrong person. Your evening on the porch relaxing with a book might not be so relaxing.
