They look more just like dogs that have become wild. Too big to just be coyotes, too small to be a wolf. Plenty of space in LSP for them to hide out.

Its hard to see if anything would work in this city as the police and parking authority don't enforce anything on the books. This definitely has compounded traffic congestion.

Jersey City police are pretty non responsive in general. I've asked them about addressing misdemeanors to their faces and they give sympathy to the offenders. This allows the air of lawlessness to persist.

It is their job to enforce the laws on the books, not to interpret them.

I'll admit i was cheering on 9/11. I was not in Jersey City, I just turned 17 and passed my drivers test.

I will say I was not cheering for any attacks that happened though.

Thanks for posting a link to that flyer. If that flyer is indicative of what to expect at the new JC Acme, this will be a total WIN. That A&P was atrociously overpriced, and their seafood was very suspect looking. I never saw a fish fillet in there that I would feel safe bringing back home. Good riddance.

As for the Pathmark on Grand, I know I am in the minority in saying this, but I thought it was good enough. I did most of my shopping there for years and thought their stock had gotten better over the years and their prices were decent compared to other options in the area. The Shoprite on Marin Blvd definitely has the best prices, but... it is a complete shit show, especially during the first few days of the month.


The Pathmark was still over priced, the produce sometimes was over ripe, moldy or rotten. The meat was awful, seafood selection was also terrible. The closing of both of these supermarkets just shows they couldn't compete. Shoprite becomes the mess it is because of the pricing. They are cheaper, double coupons, free turkeys, etc.

If you go on google maps street view someone is double parked or parked in front of the fire hydrant on pacific ave in front of Uncle's Dollar.

I think that there has been a noticeable deterioration in the Lafayette neighborhood in the past two years. I 've heard some say more aggressive policing up the hill has brought drug dealers down into Lafayette. On Pacific Avenue, Uncle's Dollar and the barber shop between Communipau and Lafayette have turned what was a quiet residential and improving portion of the neighborhood inside out. Double parked cars booming music until midnight, motor cycles and dance club activity in the barbershop, plus the antics of the bar around the corner which generates shootings with regularity but has still not been shut down.


It seems it is mostly Uncle's Dollar. The barber shop antics seem to stay inside at least. People stop by Uncle's Dollar at all times, double park, and walk out with nothing. I wonder what so many people could be stopping by a "dollar store" for and never walk out with a purchase?

What are the police doing about this? There is almost no police presence in this area even if a station is nearby.

I know many may think that this is a stretch, but in B-L it seems every minor infraction is allowed. People double park, park in front of hydrants. There is a general feel that you can do what you want. The police definitely do not make it seem they are active in any way.

Two men driving and popping out of an SUV to mug and that murder someone are not driving with clean driving records i'm sure. Yet i'm sure they are never pulled over or ticketed for double parking, turning right on red when it says not to, etc. So they fall through the cracks or know that police are not doing much.

Actually, it was nixed at one single school in the district.



What if the children still show up in costume? I can see a situation where parents dress their kids up in a form of protest.

I doubt the 30 to 60 minutes of the day during elementary school is dragging down PARCC scores.

I don't but our office has a Halloween party every year and yes, there were some witch costumes. And no, this isn't some kooky internet startup or three-person business I work at. It is a large, publicly traded company. I doubt the shareholders take issue with something that takes about an hour and the cost of refreshments is maybe $100 if that. Regardless, there has been at least one witch costume every year.


I am sure our tax dollars are not flipping the bill for your festivities unless you are one of the scum banks we bailed out. Schools are being funded by public monies and I am against any sort of celebration that has nothing to do with education especially since I don't have kids in the public school system. I am all for Halloween, we have a great celebration in my area for it, but it does not belong in school no matter how butt hurt you are.


Are you against celebrating birthdays?


Nope I celebrate mines, friends and family every year, but not in schools. I am not against celebrating holidays. I am against parties and parades that have nothing to do with the school curriculum. FYI there are thousands of peeps who don't celebrate Halloween. One of my neighbors from the Ukraine has a sign on her door that reads "No candy here, we do not celebrate Halloween."


Learning about cultural holidays can be considered part of a curriculum.

Generally I have absolutely no problem not leaving a tip for takeout, or for other things like the beer store that someone mentioned earlier. In fact, if someone yelled at me for not tipping in a takeout setting (like others have mentioned), I'd laugh at them.

However, if it is a takeout place I frequent, I do give them a buck or two from time to time. They remember you and it seems like a nice thing to do. Otherwise I agree it's obnoxious to even offer the option.


I will say this. I still tip my delivery driver even when a delivery fee is charged.

Most times I will not eat dtjc if I can't find parking and that is usually half of the time. I will not pay for 2 hour parking. I would rather jump on the lightrail to the Path and eat in NYC.



This. If I can't find a spot on the street or a metered spot, I'll go somewhere else. I'll go to another town.

I sent you a message in your inbox and FYI most of my colleagues require that the parent be present during the lesson if it is in our personal studios or at the students home.

As playing music requires physical movement we need to be able to make corrective measures to our students and not be accused of indecent touching.

We are private educators not baby sitters.

Mine is a charcoal model.

I load in about 2/3 of a bag of Kingsford Competition, add in a few hunks of pecan, apple or cherry wood, and toos on about 20 lit briquettes. The IQ 120 (the yellow and red device) monitors the interior temperature and either blows in air, or shuts down the flow, to keep the temperature constant. If you pile up the colas properly, they burn very slowly, igniting a few at a time as the fire travels from one end of the pile to the other, so you get a long , even burn, with no need to watch for temperature spikes, or to add more fuel.

I did this batch hot and fast, at 300, wrapping the meat at 90 minutes (ribs) or at internal temperature of 150 (the brisket and shoulder), and continued to cook them until they were done.

The smoker was loaded at 9am, and everything was done, rested, sliced, pulled and served by 3PM. If I did it at 225, I would have had to start the night before.


Interesting. Mine maxes at 270, but the electric gives very even heat. It has a relatively small chamber for wood chips, requiring it to be fed at least every hour. I guess most people buy them, but I have peach and fig trees and plenty of wood from them. It's a pain to cut it up small enough. Bought some bags of chunks of hickory & mesquite being deeply discounted at the Depot, but hickory is REALLY hard to cut up!


Chunks really meant for bullet or UDS style cookers. They do sell wood chips, but a good non electric smoker would be a pellet cooker. You really don't get a smoke ring with an all electric cooker.(not sure why, its a sciencey thing)
