Re: Park & Sixth Comfort Food on Grove Street

Went in the other day for a sandwich....which was, as usual, great. Service, however, was terrible. I had to stand there a good 5 minutes before one of the two girls working there asked me if I wanted to order something. They both were very unfriendly.

So his car breaks down but then he drove away? Sounds like BS to me.

All women...young/old, able/disabled. Call me old fashioned, call me crazy. As a 20-something guy in decent shape, I would feel uncomfortable sitting down while any woman is standing up.

As far as the other point of view bringing in the whole women's liberation stuff....equal rights and opportunities are one thing. This, to me, is something entirely different.

Re: 2 reported killed in car crash in Downtown Jersey City

Having really wide streets with multiple lanes is a recipe for disaster. Reminds me of Hylan Blvd in Staten Island. Accident after accident....death after death. Millions and millions of dollars spent trying to resolve the issues...meanwhile the only true resolution is keeping speeds down.

Same problem with Grand as well as Columbus. Speed is the problem. Poorly designed traffic patterns and poorly placed signs can be managed easily if people drove slower.

As for this accident, anyone who was involved with the planning, design and construction of these roads in their current state as well as anyone who could have made Grand St. a more safely designed street should be prosecuted for manslaughter.

Was recently on the train from WTC to grove. I saw an obviously pregnant woman (we are talking belly out to HERE) that was left to stand during the ride. Not one person offered her a seat. Saw plenty of 20somethings sitting in their seats playing video games on their cell phones though, as well as business men and women sitting around completely oblivious. I would have offered a seat but I was standing too.

I feel like we have lost a lot of common decency and manners in this City area. People complain that city dwellers are rude and inconsiderate and sometimes we sure do live up to our reputation.


My wife is roughly 8 months pregnant. Luckily she is still very mobile and taking the path and standing is not a problem. However, she tells me that it is very rare for someone to offer their seat and if anyone does, it is always another woman. She doesn't mind and is very comfortable standing the whole way.....but....if there is ever a time when we commute together and not one man gives up his seat....I am going to lose my mind.

People are rude and inconsiderate, that is a fact. But a bigger problem is that most men out there have a hard time acting the part. Maybe they are all eunuchs? I have no idea. Honestly, act like a man and stand up. No man under the age of 70 should have a seat until every single woman no matter what age is already sitting. It's really pathetic.

The only thing that I would like to add to this conversation would be that Spectra should spend the extra money and put the pipeline under the Hudson. Regardless of any argument for or against natural gas, the safety of people who live near where the pipeline would go should not be sacrificed for the sake of saving some money.

Wow, just wow. People are now sympathetic to Ms. Kolb. Take a look at the photo of the baby that was hurt by the dogs: http://photos.nj.com/jersey-journal/2011/07/susan_kolb_85.html There was another photo of another victim's, Jonathan Rodriguez, arms and legs, that were torn pretty bad by the dogs. I know, I saw the picture. I wish I could post that picture but it is in the www.nj.com archives. That would certainly be all the proof you need to show that these dogs are vicious and should have been put down. It is also undisputed that all of the victims went to the hospital. Furthermore, even if these attacks were exxagerated, this woman was ordered to send the dogs out of state before. She violated the court order and didn't send the dogs away! She didn't pay the fines either. She thumbed her nose at the court, and still got away with it, with almost no punishment. How can the court possibly justify giving the dogs back to her, when she didn't do what she was ordered to do before? Where is justice? If those ridiculous Occupy Wall Street people want to make themselves useful, they should be protesting this. My hearts go out to all of the victims and their families. I wonder how they are feeling right now. If I was one of them I probably would have been arrested for storming the court house right now.


No sympathy whatsoever...like I wrote, obviously she should not own these dogs. However, none of the pictures are indicative of a "mauling." That is my only point. I don't see any evidence of an attack. Had either of those dogs attacked that baby, then the results would have been far more horrific. A few scratches does not equal a mauling. A 10 pound cat can do just as much damage as what is shown in those pictures.

After perusing this thread back to the beginning I am really starting to doubt that these dogs crimes were as horrible as originally claimed. Some posters materialized and then were quickly gone after making outrageous claims. I just question whether they were just angling for a lawsuit or if these "attacks" were as bad as claimed. These dogs are huge and this woman is obviously over-matched but I really believe that if these dogs wanted you dead you'd be dead. If these dogs were really as vicious as claimed would the legal system really kick this problem down the road for another municipality to deal with? The more I read the accounts the more I see people just being knocked over and injured by their falls etc. Not that those things should be acceptable but the whole case seems less and less sinister. I have been jumped on and slightly injured by boisterous dogs but I would hardly consider it an attack. Honestly, I hope I am not wrong since these dogs are back and living amongst us.


Tell that to the three different people (including a baby) who the dogs mauled. Take a look at the pictures of their injuries they submitted to the court - you can find them at the various stories on www.nj.com. The peoples' arms and legs look just awful and badly chewed up. I wouldn't feel safe with those dogs around with their extremely irresponsible owner, and now that they are back in the hands of the owner, I don't feel safe unless there is absolute proof that they aren't in Jersey City and will never be back in Jersey City. Whoever this woman is, she has no business owning ANY dog. As far as lawsuits go, this woman, while somewhat comfortable didn't have deep pockets and a lot of assets to go after and the victims surely knew that. If I were in their shoes, I wouldn't be after money either - a satisfactory settlement would be that the dogs get put down AND the woman never allowed to own a dog again (granted the latter item would be difficult to enforce). I don't know who to be more outraged at - Ms. Kolb or the judge that allowed her to have the dogs back. She did have a very good, Harvard educated lawyer representing her, so I guess that's why she was able to get off relatively easy and have the dogs back.


The only pictures of injuries I see do not look anything like dog bites...only cuts and scrapes due to falling.

Obviously this woman does not have control over her dogs and she does not seem fit to own them, however, describing cuts and scrapes a "mauling" seems a little exaggerated.

The system won't let you purchase more than two items between 9/7 - 9/18, effectively eliminating the possibility of maxing out the card, unless you are already starting with 60 trips on it. Bunch of scumbags if you ask me.

Got me. I used to live a few doors from that place, and both old-timers and new transplants have complained about its various issues for years. A former neighbor once asked Dan Wrieden if that place would ever be torn down, and Dan got all outraged at the suggestion and pointed to the upstairs window and roofline, prattling some gibberish about "classic Victorian architecture." My neighbor had a hard time keeping a neutral expression during that pedantic diatribe.


When you look at the roof, it looks like whoever built it made a very poor attempt at achieving some kind of victorian style. I have no building or architecture experience whatsoever, yet I'm sure I could do a better job designing a "victorian style" home.

Either way, the place is a complete mess. And it shouldn't have taken an inspection by the city after a hurricane to determine that it is not fit for living. You can figure that out by using google streetview.

As a parent myself, I agree, no one should stoop to calling someone's kid by names. But I think the response by the owner, and his padding back his words, is more deplorable.

Please keep your words and do close the Jersey Store. Residents of Jersey, your lower class clientele, we have to be an absolute idiots to spend our money on an establishment where the owner is shows such a disregard for the town that enriched him. So I encourage people to spend their hard earned dollars elsewhere to support other eateries that are actually grateful and kind to their clienteles.

Shame on you Taqueria.


Why is everyone carrying on and on about what he wrote? Did he specifically call you lower class? Why would you be offended by someone calling JC lower class? Perhaps JC is. I know what kind of person I am and I am certainly not offended. If you are not low class then you shouldn't be offended either.

Usually the gates to the baseball fields are locked. The last couple mornings, they were not. Would letting my dog run around in there chasing a ball be acceptable? Say around 6 in the morning? The grass in the outfield is in pretty bad shape, my dog would not be doing any damage. I know lots of people walk their dogs around the park...I don't want to turn the baseball field into a dog run, just wondering if it would be OK to use it when no one else is around early in the morning or even late at night.

Not sure what the relationship is between cleaning up after your dog and having a license for your dog.

Bottom line...people are lazy, inconsiderate and don't care enough about keeping their neighborhood clean.

I don't see anything ever changing unless people are faced with some kind of punishment.

not justifying at all. i agree that all dogs should be leashed and not step foot/paw in the pet-free zone. i just dont understand why people get so upset over an occasional off leash dog while not caring about how filthy parts of the park get. that basketball court is disgusting, day in and day out, not just occasionally. i think that is a much bigger problem that needs to be addressed and it never is.

That's a dealbreaker for me.

They at least cleaned up the oil slick that occurred sometime during/after the rash of snowstorms we had in January.


agreed that the sidewalk in front of the place is absolutely nasty...it's unfortunate that they have no other place to put their dumpster and trash. however, the food there is pretty good. maybe just get it delivered and try not to think about it.

There are always going to be people who are going to bring their dogs into the pet-free zone, especially during off-peak hours. That's just the way it is. I have two dogs and I never go into the pet-free zone. There is a more than enough grassy area to keep my dogs satisfied.

But to be honest, I don't really care if people let their dogs into the pet-free zone. Maybe when the basketball court is bulldozed. I'm willing to donate lots of money to any politician who can get that done.
