Re: New York waste transfer deal to bring $10 million to Jersey City

Tweet from NJTV news anchor, David Cruz, this morning:

@CruzNJTV: In Jersey City, @StevenFulop flips on transfer station: "Part of leadership is recognizing when you are wrong and this is such an instance."

I can't find any more info on this change of heart, anyone else hear anything?

Actually, I took the express train there after work the other day from NY Penn Station and it was exactly 45 min. Awesome town, had a great time.

45 minutes from what? Edison? Don't get me wrong, I like Princeton a lot and would live there in a heartbeat but even at 6am on a Sunday morning (which I have done quite a few times) it's almost an exactly hour drive. And that's from JC - not the city. When you do it on a weekday during commuting hours, Rte. 1 is awful.

Razza for fancy pizza, Vinnies 3/ Grove Bistro (I know this place sucks, but the pizza is clutch) for NY style slice. Also a big fan of the Classic Italian from Romano's.

I rate razza's on grove street as the best in town. Great service, ambience, top notch ingredients, live music, good beer. A cut above.

John's on Sussex b/w Washington and Greene is good and you generally won't go wrong. A safe bet but no longer the only game.

Roman nose on Newark and grove makes a good pie as well, among other things.

Re: Would 'bus rapid transit' help spur development in JC outside of DT?
#37
Home away from home
Home away from home


I know User1111 isn't always loved on here, but he makes a totally valid point. The best way to bring about positive change in our neighborhoods is to get involved at a community level. Go to neighborhood association meetings, go to PTA meetings, go to council meetings, etc. You're sure to find many other like-minded people and there's definitely strength in numbers. Also, great places to meet your committee people, assemblyman, councilman, etc. People who can more directly cause change via legislation and influence, something you or I may not be able to do.

What's the difference between spurring development and enabling/encouraging gentrification?

A very good question - I think the answer depends on whether you consider gentrifcation a good thing (spurring development leads to a rising quality of life that attracts new residents and raises property values) or a bad thing (locals are pushed out as developers build expensive condos, and chain stores take the place of unique local businesses).

I raised the question, as a reaction to my personal experience living in the Heights for 6 years. Now, many people on this board are long-time residents of the Heights, and I don't want to belittle their home, so I'll say as a 'citizen of the greater NYC area' the Heights is falling way short of it's potential, and better mass transit access to Hoboken, NYC, and DTJC is the major reason.


No disrespect, but what are you doing to bring The Heights to where you want it? Are you meeting with your neighborhood association to bring about the change you desire? Thanks!

You are an a-hole and I'm ignoring that question - and you, from now on. But I do have a real question for everyone - is there anyone in ANY position of authority at NJTransit or in JC government to lodge a complaint with about how unacceptable bus service to the Heights is? Tonight we waited 30 minutes in Hoboken with no 87, line stretching back to the taxi stand. At least 5 or 6 126 buses left, the last with 1 person on it!!! I took I pix with my phone I can send them.

Visited Thriftique earlier this summer at the behest of my interior designer friend for my condo makeover, and MAN such great finds (and awesomely inexpensive)! Everyone's entitled to stay in their bubbles if they like, but it's easy to miss out on gems not even 20 min away.

I agree with Lima. It's not that we're "scared" to go to a gallery on Danforth. It's just that there's already similar caliber galleries in DTJC. And if one is going to travel to a gallery, it's just as easy to get to Chelsea, Williamsburg, or Bushwick.

The argument that people don't go to the Heights or JSQ or BL because we're xenophobic yuppies is absurd. I know that's what a few posters who have some vendetta against downtown residents want everyone to believe but it's just not the case. If I'm leaving my immediate neighborhood to go hang out it'll be Manhattan or Brooklyn because they offer a lot more to do than going 15 minutes deeper into JC.

Lets just say you and Lima bean wont do it, I was at Thritique a few weeks ago here in GV and half of the shoppers were from dtjc and Hoboken. Its the individual, I really want to believe not everyone down there is cut from the same cloth. .

Is someone going to carry that 40lb sack of charcoal home?


Haven't been in there in a few weeks, but i would imagine the charcoal is for people who want to buy their meat and grill at home. I highly doubt they're expecting big $ from the fridge off to the side that sells random specialty items. I've probably spent more money at Union Republic since they opened than any restaurant in JC. I've bought meat several times and have eaten there a handful of times. I've also enjoyed their art exhibit a few months back. I hope they survive. One of the few unique and good restaurant establishments that has opened recently in JC.

Not to turn this into a 7th St Deli discussion but they were a frequent breakfast/lunch place for us - egg sammies and ramen were our faves. Anyone know if they are opening something elsewhere?

Not too large, they recommend 3 to be full or 2 and a side salad. 1 would be a great light snack if you're not too hungry.

Lafayette has historically been known at times as Communipaw, or Communipaw-Lafayette and is in fact one of the oldest settlements in North America (as previously stated). If you need further proof, here's an entire book on our neighborhood written by John Gomez; former resident and founding member of the JC Landmarks Conservancy. It's a good read.

You do know that you are technically one neighborhood right? It's not Bergen and Lafayette, it's Bergen-Lafayette.

To say that your one area has less crime than downtown is not a fair comparison. In fact, if you are indeed saying that then my condo building in downtown has way less crime than your personally designated area of you neighborhood. Give me a break.


I'll just copy and paste the first two sentences from the B-L Wiki:

"Bergen-Lafayette is a section of Jersey City, New Jersey.[1]
As its name implies, Bergen-Lafayette is made of different neighborhoods."

It's the same as talking about the VV neighborhood or The Village neighborhood, not sure why that's difficult for you to comprehend. In reference to the crime stats, NewLafayette very clearly noted that there was a major density difference between our neighborhood and all of downtown.

With the tone of some of these responses, you'd think that we're attacking other neighborhoods. That's not the case at all, we're just shining a light on our 'hood.

Def understand where you're coming from, but I just wanna reiterate that I'm talking about the Lafayette section of B-L in particular. I feel like it's in a unique position since it's right next to downtown, soon to be flanked by 2 major parks, and has a relatively low crime rate.

What does the future hold for Lafayette?
#52

I really enjoyed the ongoing discussion about The Heights so I thought it'd be fun to start one about my own neighborhood.

Lafayette's a pretty quiet community situated West of Liberty State Park and East of Bergen Hill. The Communipaw-Lafayette neighborhood is actually one of the oldest settlements in North America and we have some great old (though sadly often neglected) housing stock to show for it. It's historically a working class neighborhood, but over the past 10-15 years there's been an influx of slightly more affluent folks moving in.

Transit-wise we have the Liberty State Park light rail and various buses that run via the neighborhood's main arteries, Pacific Ave and Communipaw Ave. I personally would love to see the much talked about Pacific Ave light rail stop come to fruition as well, I think that'd be a huge boost to the area.

I'd also love to see a forward thinking restaurant like MAE come back to the neighborhood! That was such a gem, but it might have been a bit ahead of it's time (allegedly, there were some major disputes between them and the landlord).

With Berry Lane Park coming along nicely, a bunch of new housing developments in the pipeline, and an awesome group of very involved neighbors working with police to make things better, I definitely feel confident in my purchase here. What I'd love to see most is more small businesses opening in the area, but I'm sure that will come with time.

I'm curious about what other folks in the neighborhood think about it's progress.

This makes much more sense transit wise though, as it's right next to the MLK light rail station. I think it's a great move and will help develop an area that is in dire need of it. If you want a good laugh, check out the comments section on the article. You can't make this stuff up!

I'm a big fan of MP, much better food than LH. The menu is a lot more modern and nuanced, but be warned that the prices can get a bit steep. One leg up I'd give LH is that they have a more lively, party sort of atmosphere (especially during the summer in their outdoor area). It all depends on what you're in the mood for.

I've been going for a few weeks now, here's a short rundown. The place is very modern and boasts all new machines, clean environment, and it's well maintained. Just know though, for $15 a month this is a no-frills gym. They have personal trainers on staff, but no classes like other gyms. They also don't have towel service, so BYO! Thankfully, there are showers in case you need to head somewhere right after your workout. All in all, I'd say it's well worth the $15/mo.
