He's probably referring to New Park Tavern, a cop bar. I've been, it's better than ok. Nice place to smoke outside in the back if you're into that thing, good bar pies and such, cheap beers.


Bar pies? I haven't been in since summer, they're serving pizza??


No, they're not, I made a mistake. I meant burgers, but bar pies came out instead. Cheeeese.

1. That's a shame.
2. Maybe Christie ordered the hit as a message to Fulop to not run for governorship? He likes to fux with hudson traffic...jk
3. Conductors should not be a thing, autopilot in subways. Unless there's a conductors union or something, why is it still a thing? Like there's a guy (or gal) pushing and pulling an actual lever? And when he falls asleep, has a stroke/heart attack, is paid off by Christie/ISIS, or is updating his facebook status, he doesn't push/pull the thingie and people die? Forreals? What is it, like the elevator operator's union? Cheez.

Last one I had replaced cost I think about $8k (this was a long time ago). A big factor in the cost depends on what side your building is on vs. what side the water main is on.

Are you sure the main is the only source of lead? Water mains tends to not have standing water for long periods (to allow lead levels to build up) and JC's water isn't acidic (that is how that city in Michigan suddenly had a major lead contamination issue), which would cause a big uptick in lead (the new water source was acidic).

Leaded solder in pipes?
Really old plumbing fixtures?

Elemental lead, like other heavy metals isn't generally the problem (won't metabolize easily). It is when the metal is consumed in the form of a salt (i.e. lead acetate) that is what makes is dangerous. Kids tend to get it worse because they drink leaded water which is first used to make fruit juice (acetic acid + lead).

Geek trivia: It wasn't the lead pipes that gave the Romans lead poisoning. It was common practice to use lead acetate as a sweetener for low quality wine (wine was a important source of B vitamins), created by boiler wine in lead vats.



Great summary. You've distilled hours of research into easily palatable paragraphs.
Who's responsible for replacing the main? I'm assuming the homeowner...but maybe nah?

Comedy Club in Jersey City

I went to see Louis CK yesterday at MSG and was reminded of how much I love comedy. I frequently head over the river to the cellar to see good standup.

Is there a comedy club in Jersey City or Hoboken? What does it take to open one?

I've dismissed this restaurant for a long time in the past as it only served dishes catering to westerners. And, i did not like the idea of a blended thai, japanese, etc... menu. However, with the recent additional dimsum offerings, i skeptically decided to give it a try.

I loved it. It's not as innovative compared to the refined dimsum restaurants in Hong Kong or Vancouver, but rather, it is more old school "cha lou"-style/traditional shrimp and pork dumplings. I was more than well sated, however, as were my other finnicky friends.

Enjoyed it so much, that I've been going there 5 times within the past 2 weeks. Great quality and beats a schlep to chinatown. Plus, it's served all day, so no waiting for weekends. The owner informed me that the newly hired chef, from Hong Kong, is bringing more cantonese styled dishes (menu is being expanded and reprinted). Had the garlic chicken last night (not on menu but on the billboard outside) was reminiscent of Congee Bowery's signature garlic chicken dish. Quite yummy. I'm optimistic about this restaurant now :)


Yoo thanks for the info! I need dimsum in my life. JC needs dimsum in her life.

Agree with you on the interior 100000%. It's kinda like that pasta place on jersey ave that's byob. Please, restaurateurs, you may be artsy and creative, but either be friends with or hire an interior designer! *I'm not an interior designer.

No doubt I'm a dick, but I have yet to watch the wire, and I only know where Paramus is vaguely. I don't enjoy ghetto-porn, being from it, you voyeuristic, high-cholesterol having, unwelcome, herbivorous shit for brains.

This is all such an asinine argument. Dullboy is busy most weekdays and packed most weekends. Orale is also packed most days. The only reason the other restaurants on that block aren't crowded is because they're takeout/delivery places.


One is left to wonder if EasyGibson and GrovePath have ever been to Dullboy or Orale, or in the general vicinity, on any evening, as their posts lack any sort of basis on reality. As JcDevil points out, these two businesses are always well patronized. Heck, even the cigar shop seems to pull in a good amount of customers with a crew of regulars that can often be found there lounging outside enjoying a smoke and some friendly banter.

As for Alex, I hear the pizza is decent enough, but every single person I know that has dined there (and not ordered pizza) has told me it is awful. For pizza, I have become a fan of Abbondanza: great crust, good ingredients, and cheap if ordering for takeout/delivery.

I think there's always room for more pizzerias in JC, as supported by the very existence of them. They are a perfect visual representation of the supply/demand curve. I think someone who knows what they're doing for New York style pizza could just come in and become successful with minimal changes. The styling, signage, and name are corny AF.

Yes, shame on me, SOS. I can't prove anything, matt07302.
People like you two exist and I just deal with it. Thanks for being boat anchors, it helps those around you to become stronger.

Thanks for the helpful responses, others. I'd like to reiterate it has yet to affect me, but Wriedon's overreach may in the future affect me. I may have to keep my lead water main!

I hope it doesn't have to be me to bring the lawsuit. I'm not a 1 percenter and don't have unlimited time/money to fight the government.
No wonder 90% of people continue to do construction quietly without permits (or all permits, just getting a little bullshit one and then doing massive renos).

It hasn't yet, it might affect me soon. Just trying to think 3 steps ahead like Ariel Hsing.
As someone living in a historic neighborhood with lots of renovation on the block, I've heard many complaints of overreach: asking to see basements, stairwells, carriage houses, gardens, and the like.
This is nothing personal, btw. I'm not emotionally invested at all, since it has yet to affect me. I'm just looking for more data for my algorithm.

As someone living in a historic neighborhood with lots of renovation on the block I have never heard any complaints about Dan enforcing historic preservation on the interior of the home. In fact, neighbors doing renovations have told me only positive things about his visit. That said, when I went to get a permit to replace a water heater I was told by the building department to take it up to his office first because my home was historic. It was no big deal.

I had a lawyer friend of mine over from New York recently, and we did the usual, "I can't believe it, never heard of something like that" thing for a minute, and then he suggested I file a report for 'abuse of power' in Trenton, because likely the Jersey City government won't do anything because they've let it slide for about 12 years or so...?

Correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above; I hope to see some responses before the mod deletes. If it is within his purview, this is just an example of systematic overreach as opposed to individual overreach. Either way, I'd like to know.

I don't mind going to Trenton on the way to Philly on a weekday, and I doubt it would get any traction, but I'd at least like to have something down on paper.

Do you see what the "mod" allows to appear on this site from the right wing rascist Trump contingent? You think he cares about your incoherent ranting? You should go to Trenton. I double dare you!

"My understanding is that his responsibility is limited to the part of the facade that is visible from the street." - no that is not correct.

This is what you want to buy: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001 ... psc=1&smid=A2TKKVHTEM76PZ

Like I said earlier, it is heavy, even cumbersome, but no one is going to mess with your bike. Also, if your kid has a quick release wheel, have him remove it every time he locks the bike, and place it next to the frame and then run the chain through both wheels and the inside of the frame. In 5 years of locking my bike all over JC and NYC, never had any issues when doing it this way.


Buying based on your recommendation. Now recall that I had this for my 1st motorcycle almost a decade ago.

The neighbors are perfectly nice people but a little too nosy for my taste. A privacy fence may be the solution, and it works both ways because I won't have to see all the trash they leave in their backyard.

So I'd like to get started, but don't know how. Who does things like this, a landscape architect? Anyone have any experience with this?

I have to admit that I had underestimated Trump's political talent. He is perhaps as talented as Hitler was (not saying he is the new Hitler, but Hitler wasn't the Hitler until he became one, right?)

Everyone in American Mainstream should be scared of the fact that he "can" win in theory. He may even get more votes.

But anyone who predicts an outcome or the other without referencing the electoral map, doesn't know what they are talking about.

I often hear from my racist coworkers that Clinton is so crooked and that Trump will win decisively.

But when I ask them which states he is going to win where Romney lost 4 years ago, they usually give me a blank facial expression--as if they have never thought about it.

Let's remind ourselves of the basic facts:

There are 18 states (and DC) that D has won consistently since 1992 (6 cycles). They are the bluest of the blue states, and their total electoral votes are 242. That's only 28 votes away from winning 270. (Florida has 29 electoral votes.) So if Clinton hangs onto the states where D usually wins, all she has to win is FL. It doesn't matter where else Trump wins.

If you add 3 states that D won 5 out of 6 elections (IA, NM and NH), the total is 257, which is only 13 votes away from 270.

On the other hand, there are only 13 states that R has won consistently during the same period. The total of their electoral votes are only 102. Even if you add 5 states that R has won 5 out of 6 elections, it only reaches 158 (99 less than that of D).

So just because there are two candidates, it doesn't mean that their chance of winning is 50-50. D has a huge advantage because many blue states have larger number of electoral votes.

http://www.270towin.com/

http://thehill.com/opinion/juan-willi ... -map-looks-grim-for-trump

So those who predict Trump's victory in November, please show me what the electoral map would look like when he does indeed win.

When my racist coworkers are confronted by this fact, they usually don't believe it and start to express racial resentment.


I think Trump may swing Ohio if he recruits Kasich, the current governor there. That's 18 votes right there.
