There are dozens of ghost cities in China. It has nothing to do with appliances. It has to do with the collapse of the Chinese economy in more rural areas of China, and the fact that capacity far exceeds demand. It's very very significant.

I'd read that too, but then I read that that's something of an illusion. When the Chinese build an apartment building the interiors are not finished. The apartments are empty shells without finishes or any appliances. So it takes awhile for them to get finished by the owners of individual units. It may be a year or a year and a half before a new building begins to get occupied. Until then it appears like a ghost building.

Yvonne, I did not call you a right wing extremist. I made that comment in a general sense referring to the efforts made every day by right wing extremists like Michelle Bachmann, Paul Ryan and others to impose their religious beliefs on me, when I don't live in a religiously governed country. You know where religious law is the law of the land? Saudi Arabia. Iran. Lots of other places where women are subjugated and killed by stoning for being raped. But I digress. I reread what I wrote and in no way do I direct that remark at you. If I were going to call you something, I would specifically address you that way, but I don't do that. You don't seem like a right wing extremist to me. You seem naive and unclear about the kind of country this is and the constitutional limitations in place to separate religious practice from law. Nobody is twisting your words that I see here. We are reading your words and responding to them.

YOU are still confused about Roman numerals. Since I took EIGHT YEARS OF LATIN, allow me to assure you that "1" is a numeral meaning "one" that is derived from the Arabic or Hindu-Arabic numbering system. "I" is the capital Arabic letter "i" which we use to designate the Roman numeral "one". TWO in Roman numerals, as in POPE JOHN PAUL THE SECOND, would be "II". The link YOU posted supports what I have just said. If you need help translating anything for church, just let me know.

Yvonne, you're 100% wrong. In Roman Numerals, by the way, one hundred is C, so if you prefer, although you're mistakenly continuing to use Arabic numerals for Roman numerals, I'll say C% wrong. Nobody is trying to force you personally or your church as an entity to do anything. What we are trying to do is separate what your church teaches within its walls or within the global community it inhabits from violating the laws of the land. Discrimination is illegal. If you as a professional baker don't want to bake a cake for someone for no other reason than because the couple getting married is same-sex, and you are in violation of a law, you are going to get sued. If a place of public accommodation discriminates, whether it is owned by a tax-exempt nonprofit or religious entity or what have you, it is going to face lawsuits. Your physical church does not have to allow anything it doesn't want to have happen within its walls, and you are C% welcome to worship and believe WHATEVER you want--that is what religious freedom is. You can believe whatever you want. But we don't live in a religiously governed country. We live in a secular country, right-wing extremist activists notwithstanding, who make laws according to the majority of the will of the people. You don't have to like it. I understand if you are morally opposed to it, and I don't have a problem with you working to stop any legislation you find morally objectionable--that is the wonderful thing about living here. We all have the right to promote our views. The difference is that your views are YOUR VIEWS. They are not MY VIEWS. As a Jew or an atheist or a Wiccan, your views are going to be in conflict with mine, and that is why we have a separation--to ensure everyone can be treated equally under the law. It isn't as dire as you seem to think. You can worship any god you want, any way you like. If you want to worship a god that considers hatred and intolerance a better standard than love and equality, more power to you.

I feel you. Hamilton Park is one of the prettiest places in the entire area, though, so you have that to sustain you. Have fun with your pals, and have them walk over on Erie, which has a lot to recommend it. LOL, imagine being smug when you live in Sunset Park.

Yes. Those of us who moved here 15 years ago didn't buy new construction. We replaced outgoing residents. We didn't contribute to the surge in population, congestion, FILTH, crime, etc. Yes, there are wonderful new shops, restaurants, cultural options that didn't exist and I appreciate those, but the fact remains that the people who came here initially and paved the way for all the other more recent growth didn't want density. We wanted what JC had at that time which was convenience without the assault on our personal space that living here has become. One of the attractions of living here was the fact that you didn't have to kill someone to get on or off a train, listen to horns honking on the streets, get knocked over on the effing sidewalk when a bike came charging at you, etcetera. Living here was pleasant and quiet, and it isn't any longer. Yes, the changes have come with associated benefits too, but the lifestyle that a lot of people moved here for is gone.

Everybody has their own way of determining what is worth what. This conversation has played out before on here, and in my opinion, the quality of produce at Corrado's is on a whole other level than Shop Rite. Corrado's sources a lot of produce locally from smaller NY/NJ/PA farms. Shop Rite gets some local produce, but they get it from NJ-based corporate farms. You can taste the difference. The short drive to North Arlington is negligible in terms of cost, and the benefit of supporting a local NJ family owned independent business that makes a lot of its own food and sells other local products such as Newark and Paterson-based baked goods is important to me.

Everyone is different. If you like the convenience of Shop Rite, the savings and enjoy what you buy there, that's all that matters. Your recipe sounds interesting--I normally parboil the rabe, then saute it with olive oil and garlic and a little crushed red pepper flake. I would never have thought to use raisins--I love that idea.

CHEAP TAILOR to shorten all the pants

Yes, I am short. Even petite pants tend to be an inch or two past acceptable. When I was in NoHo, I would walk down to Chinatown where a number of places did this for $5 a pair. I would love to pay under $10 a pair somewhere in the JC vicinity...would go to Bayonne or Union City for a bargain. I have six draggy pairs, so saving money is important.

Re: T-Mobile

I have T-Mobile and live in Harsimus Cove. I have had no problems here specifically, but there are a number of places in the general area where I get no service, the most annoying of which seems to be the Brooklyn Bridge area. As far as calling from home here in JC, I have no complaints. Don't even get me started about upstate--my friends with Verizon are texting and calling all over the Catskills but I am forced to listen to birds and look at trees and eagles and rivers and stuff. It's a blessing and a curse to have T-Mobile for that reason.

Re: Parking in Hamilton Park...
#44
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


It's the same here in Harsimus Cove. I bought here in '99. I never had a problem finding a spot, ever. Now, no matter what day or time it is, it is virtually impossible. I think part of the specific reason over here is the construction at 223 First and 8 Erie, but even without those projects, I believe that any neighborhood within walking distance of a train is overrun with commuters who park and walk to the PATH. I walk my dogs a number of times a day and I have taken careful note of cars which seem to be owned by locals vs those which seem to be carpetbaggers. There are plenty of those.

I have been looking into this issue in order to make a case against issuing permits to non-residents. Right now, they are practically free, relatively speaking, and the convenience far outweighs the few hundred dollars it costs. If they were painfully priced, I think it would help. I also don't know where the parking fees go, but I don't see them benefiting my neighborhood. Quality of life over here is markedly worse than it was back in the early '00s, and in the six-7 years I have been gone, it has deteriorated to a shocking degree.

I love Jersey City, but as is often discussed on here, it has almost become a victim of its own success. The lack of long-term strategy for growth is impacting the residents on a daily basis now.

You may be thinking of UMDNJ which has been renamed. As to the original question, I really am guessing here, but I would call whichever agency in Newark performs building inspections and tell them what you're trying to do. If they can't help you, they may be able to help direct you.

Re: Looking for coconut oil in JC for cooking

There were two sizes of coconut oil at Pathmark over on Grand by the Bank of America ATM, in a little Indian foods section and priced reasonably. I also saw it at Apna Bazar last weekend. The best coconut oil I have gotten has been by mail, but when I was at Costco the other day they had the same brand I had ordered dirt cheap. I don't know if there is a Costco near JC but I will be at the one in Sunset Park again soon if you want me to pick some up for you. There has been a mistaken rumor going around that what Costco sells is not good quality. That is wrong. Here is the skinny: http://wholenewmom.com/reaching-out/i ... il-junk-or-the-real-deal/

Yeah, I'm with the pro-attendant cadre. I grew up here in NJ and love it. I have lived in MD and NY and while I didn't have strong feelings about pumping it myself one way or the other, I definitely prefer not having to pump it. I don't mind the extra minute when there are several people waiting. I think it's nice to have one small moment in time where someone is doing something for me with no expectation of a tip.

You guys are hilarious. Thanks for all the good wishes. I met my husband on an online site, and while he wasn't a very good husband, he is certainly a relatively nice normal person in general, so I have confidence in this method overall. I am unused to this kind of bad luck, though!

Tonight's guy has been thoroughly vetted, and is local--one of you probably knows him, so the only thing I have to worry about is the usual "will we be repulsed by one another in person" thing.

I hate dating. Mail order husbands are looking better and better.

Re: Jersey City woman to appear on 'Say Yes to the Dress'
#60
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


The majority of the women on this show are very cost-conscious and the average price of a dress being considered by most of them is under $2000. This is not a show about privileged women having hissy fits for the most part. Most of the time it is about young women with overbearing mothers trying to assert their independence without offending anyone. Many of the women on the show are extremely anxious about spending one dollar more than their budgeted amount. It may be a first-world problem, but for a lot of these women, it is the most important day in their lives, something they and their families have worked and saved for, and I don't have a problem watching thirty minutes of real people having their dreams fulfilled. I have a friend who works at Kleinfeld, and believe me, they have plenty of horrific brides they try their hardest to keep away from the filming days.
