And ignore those parking tickets (it just takes two) and after a few notices your driving license gets suspended . . . so pay up, everyone.

Do you mean New Park Tavern?

A bar that doubles as a Chinese restaurant? Anyone been? It looks like it may be worth a visit for grins and giggles.

Twice I've seen a mail carrier on Garfield Ave in Greenville pushing a mail cart dressed very casually, so I'm going to assume JC mailmen don't have a strict dress code.

We can only hope for 'stop and frisk' but I don't see Fulop putting public safety ahead of the lunatic left ranting about it. Of course the people of, say, Greenville, will continue to be murdered.

My take on this is that that Section D, 1, would indicate that permit parking overnight is ok. But double check!

(d)

The certain parts of the park and ride described in this subsection are hereby designated and established as “permit parking only” zones where parking is prohibited at all times unless a valid vehicle permit is displayed:


(1)

Permit parking only:



(A) Within the designated parking areas as indicated on the site plan, during all hours.

You might want to check before buying a pass for the park & ride lot at Liberty State Park. I called and asked about overnight parking a while back, and I was told they do not allow it.


My comment was based upon seeing cars parked overnight, but your suggestion is prudent.

Dogs off leash, no matter how well trained their owners may claim they are, are much more prone to being run over by cars. It's really just roulette, in a way.

The Paterson Plank Road is definitely a great way to make it out to Edgewater quicker than any other route. But, as I have already mentioned before, why drive to Edgewater (and, deal with River Road and the crazy delays that can crop up) when you can jump on the turnpike and drive over to Millburn??? From downtown JC, you can jump on the turnpike extension, which then becomes 78, and you can make it to Millburn in 20 minutes, or less. Once in Millburn, you can hit up a WF and a large-sized TJ's, both of which are within a mile of each other. And, honestly, that WF is SUPER nice. Some of the nicest supermarket employees I have met around this region (other than Wegman's, of course, which is also 20 - 25 minutes away on the turnpike, Exit 11, in Woodbridge.)


You may not know that the Millburn TJ's is built into the former Lord and Taylor department store building, designed by noted industrial designer Raymond Loewy and his firm. (Loewy is perhaps best known for his redesign of the Coke bottle, Avanti automobile, and the Exxon logo). At one time Millburn Avenue was anchored by Lord and Taylor at the east end, and the first Saks outside Manhattan on the west end). If you're going to the area, a visit to the recently redone Greenwood Gardens, an Arts and Crafts era masterpiece.

Wait a couple of years til they tear it down and put up condos on that lot. It'll be real interesting to see where we should do our grocery shopping then


Then the free market will support another supermarket to fill any void. Of course, Fresh Direct and similar online based supermarkets are gaining clients daily.

There's 3 TJ's within 2 miles of my relative's house in Presidio Heights, San Francisco. It's about the density of non-waterfront JC but pretty affluent. I agree they're morons to ignore this market of Hoboken & Downtown with over 80,000 affluent residents. They've opened stores in much smaller and poorer towns. Far as I can tell it's anti-urban bias.


Totally silly, given their presence in Manhattan, no?

I can bike to Edgewater in less than 40 minutes. And Manhattan, with it's vertical density, isn't a good comparison. In any case, the true test would be if TJ's thinks JC is a good fit for their corporate goals. So far it's not made the grade.

Re: Whole Foods in JC?

The TJ's in Edgewater is less than 10 miles away-the TJ model usually doesn't put them so close together, unless they straddle very affluent areas-ie the Westfield, Millburn, and Florham Park stores are somewhat close but they are supported by very high income shoppers. (It was no mistake that the first TJ's on the east coast was in, wait for it, Scarsdale).

He signed legislation to create the country's first state-supported stem-cell research facility, enacted domestic partnerships in NJ before it was hip, reformed child welfare laws, instituted needle-exchange program to combat AIDS. Experience-wise — was governor. Was mayor of Woodbridge. Was in the State Senate and Assembly. I mean geez, you may not like the guy but the you can't say he lacks experience, especially on issues that were considered controversial at the time. Why is this bad for JC again?



Stem cell research funding? How has that worked for NJ taxpayers? Even gays aren't happy with the NJ domestic partnership laws. Needle exchange is so minor as to be laughable. What did he do for public safety, schools, taxes, education reform?

McGreevey is a pariah among both parties in NJ, it's not like he's got juice and influence to bring some $ and support to JC. His sexual peccadilloes and the way he injected it into OUR government was an epic disgrace. Could Fulop have not found someone without 10 porter baggage to take this job?

Gallery papered over on Communipaw?

The space that artist Hulbert Waldroup had on the ground floor of the Communipaw Cove building on Communipaw and Monitor has its windows papered over-anyone know if there is finally retail going in? When M.A.E. closed it seemed the area hit a hiccup, could something interesting be going in the space?

My advice to Fulop, manage him well because his incredibly large ego might be more than you can handle.


'could do worse' is setting the bar waaaay too low for a mayor who wants to be a reformer. As far as 'great credentials', McGreevey has no accomplishments as Governor that I can recall.

Every NJ resident I know remembers McSlimey as another corrupt politician, who in his private life endangered his wife (wives) by risky, anonymous highway rest stop sex. And then spent time covering up his public and private behavior rather than admitting it (until forced to under duress).

Bad choice, with no upside for Fulop. McSlimey never came clean over his Israeli lover and the way he was installed in a position that he was unqualified for. I'm surprised at the choice. It makes you wonder why Fulop chose him.

I went the Manhattan route, both ways, no traffic at 2AM either way-just some detours on the Van Wyck and around JFK itself. Roundtrip came to 48 miles, and it was about 35 minutes each way.
