GEORGE: Maybe you said something that offended her.

JERRY: The only thing I can think of is I told her we should have those moving walkways all over the city.

GEORGE: Like at the airport? (getting excited)

JERRY: Yeah.

GEORGE: That's a great idea!!!

JERRY: Tell me about it!

GEORGE: We could be zipping all over the place.

JERRY: They could at least try it.

GEORGE: They never try anything.

JERRY: What's the harm?

It isn't purely demographics. They are moving into a large building with a huge parking lot across the street. There is a major transit hub and a world class arena and performing arts center right nearby. There are a lot more workers that spend the day right around that building than there are in downtown JC. There are thousands of college students living on campuses within a few blocks of the store. Prudential is already in town and Panasonic is moving in over 1,000 workers as we speak. Not to mention the municipal workers and law firms. It is simply a better location than Jersey City. They know what they are doing. And I suspect that Newark is a lot easier to deal with than Jersey City as far as getting a business up and running.

It is an 8 mile drive or 15-minute PATH ride and a 10-minute walk from the Grove Street station, so there's that.

Yes. You should live where you enjoy living. I have had long 90-120 minute commutes as well as very short walks to work. None of that matters if you don't like where you are when you get home and where you spend your weekends and free time. With a 15-minute walk to work, I just sleep later in the mornings and take care of household stuff when I get home earlier. It never feels like I have all this extra time on my hands. With longer commutes I read a lot more books and it becomes a habit that I just don't dwell on or ponder too much. So, unless you just absolutely cannot physically and emotionally stand commuting more than an hour or so and sleep is of paramount importance in your life, you should not let commuting time dictate your residence.

Some people put up with commutes so as not to have to raise their kids here. It's only an hour or so to Monmouth County and the taxes are not much different than a downtown two-bedroom condo. No condo fees, either. And the schools? Come on. Can't say that I blame them.

But check out how you can live there if you have a paltry $50k/yr engineering job. This would be your house (which would be just run of mill/ordinary for the area):

Your commute would be 35 minutes in what would be laughable traffic by NJ/NYC standards, you could get most anything in stores easily (I've actually found it hard to get things here that I have just walked into walmart at 2am and gotten off the shelf), and you NEVER pay for parking anywhere including downtown.

Downside, no big city living closeby like the JC/NYC area. But Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, and Memphis are just a few hours away. I've spent more time in the train going from Hoboken to Mount Arlington than I have driving to Nashville--and no paying for parking there either.

But JC/NYC has it's advantages too. My wife can't make half the money in Alabama that she can here.

It just amazes me how much people in Manhattan will pay just to be there. They could afford this house for some of those 5-figure rents:

Re: New Jersey's Insane Ban on Self-Service Gasoline

Gas will not be cheaper if we go to self-serve. You will wind up paying the same price for self-serve as you do now and more for full serve. And the wait time for an attendant is rarely more than a minute or two. You guys are exaggerating. You don't have anywhere that important to go that another minute or two would matter, anyway. No, you don't.

In an era where we are left to fend for ourselves for just about every damn thing, the full-serve gas station is one of the last luxuries. How is it not a good thing to have someone do something for you without paying extra?

Re: Cory Booker: the inexorable rise of Newark's neoliberal egomaniac
#52

The condition of Newark is not really relevant in this election. A vote for Senator is a vote for your value system. Steve Lonegan wouldn't have been any better a mayor for Newark than Booker. I hardly think the tiny little village of Bogota, NJ is a shining example for anything, either. There is a clear distinction between Booker and Lonegan. Senators make laws, vote for Supreme Court Justices, shape foreign policy, etc. Big picture things. Not property taxes, school budgets, traffic fixes, and off-leash dog laws. I cannot imagine anyone being undecided at this point regarding the NJ Senatorial election. Myself, I think Booker is the more intelligent, worldly, thoughtful, and mature candidate. I think he would be more likely to vote in a manner I would wish than would Lonegan. I think Lonegan is a hateful, simple-minded little runt. But we can all agree to disagree. Booker is not my ideal candidate, but I've got to pick one of them.

I used to be a hot-headed, hard-core Republican, complete with National Review and American Spectator subscriptions. Twenty years ago I would have voted for Lonegan in a heartbeat. It's funny how someone can change when they start observing things with an open mind and try to figure things out using their own brain instead of some talk show host's.

A crosswalk does not have to have any paint or signs for it to be a crosswalk. So an unmarked, unpainted crosswalk is still a crosswalk and the driver must yield. From NJDOT:

http://www.state.nj.us/transportation ... pedsafety/crosswalks.shtm

Now the only thing left to debate is what a crosswalk is.


I think this picture shows 4 unmarked crosswalks:

Yes, it does. The law as written on the official website delineates the difference. I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just quoting the site.

- Marked crosswalk = intersection with a painted crosswalk and sign (driver MUST stop)
- Unmarked crosswalk = intersection with a painted crosswalk and no sign (driver must yield)
- Unmarked, unpainted crosswalk = plain old intersection. Pedestrian must yield.

It's pretty clearly written on the website, so....

I am not sure it is as clear as you say. If it is an intersection, marked or not, the pedestrian has the right of way provided that they allow the driver enough time.

"Pedestrians:
Always cross at corners, within marked crosswalks where available.

If crossing in other locations, yield the right of way to vehicles. Failure to obey the law carries a $54 fine (court costs additional; C.39:4-32, 33) "

The "other locations" means anywhere other than an intersection with corners.
