It would be interesting to know if the promoter was able to scam investors (t.v and sponsors) when he wasn't financial from the gecko and didn't make instalment payments?



You don't know that Leo Hindery, creator of the YES network, financial advisor to President Obama, and noted private equity investor is the driving force behind the NJGP?

And since no public funds are being used for the event how could money be better spent on transport infrastructure?

I'm not sure why Lauda (known as 'the Rat') would mention NJ being tossed off the calendar to expedite his country getting its own GP-especially when the 2014 GP of India HAS officially been canceled. But Bernie's recent indictment on bribery charges has muddied the waters for all.

Re: Jersey City prints?

When attending antique shows I generally spend a minute looking through vintage postcards (usually grouped by town/theme) for gifts for friends from specific towns or with special interests. Here is a book with images of 230 vintage postcards with Jersey City images. Perhaps, using the book as a guide, you could search for some-then maybe buy some of your favorites, and have a good frame store mount them artfully in a large frame?

As much as I like Andrea Salumeria on Central Ave in the Heights (it's my go-to spot for their home made soppressatta, which they'll slice for you) their Italian heros are edged out by Benanti's in Bayonne. Both are great sandwiches, but you get more bread choices (from the bins which you pick yourself) and they slice the meats and cheeses super thin at Benanti's. Love both places, actually, but if you've never been to Benanti's you should give it a try.

Today at the Pechter's bakery in Harrison, easy drive from most of JC-a 3lb loaf of their seeded rye which they sliced and put into two bags, a what must be 2lb loaf of lemon poppyseed pound cake, two poppyseed Kaiser rolls and two onion rolls-$11.05.

NY Police boat at Surf City dock today
Home away from home
Home away from home


Writing tickets to five people on three jet skis! The NYPD boat followed them across the Hudson, lit up the lights, then made them dock just east of Surf City/Marin Blvd. I don't know the infraction, but the cops didn't look happy. The boaters did have life jackets and the jet skis were licensed. I didn't see any Breathalysers in use either.

Moving here again after being away for 6 years has thrown me a little. All the places I used to go in Manhattan and BRooklyn are not convenient any more, and to be honest, I can't remember most of where I used to go here in JC. I would like to avoid schleps to Western Beef and Fairway if I can help it.

Are there places people feel have good, inexpensive produce? Brooklyn has a number of 24/7/52 fruit and vegetable warehouses open to the public that I am missing already.

What about tahini? I use a lot of it, and I can't be spending $9 a jar.

Thanks.


I bought corn at 10 ears for $1.99 at Corrado's yesterday, and they were quite good. USA blueberries, a pint for $.99. Good peaches $.79/lb. And for Jessica, the Corrado's in North Arlington is quite small compared to the original in Clifton, but their produce section is quite large. Prices are the same at all Corrado's locations but the selection is, of course, somewhat limited outside the flagship.

I honestly can't fathom why people would drive to Edgewater or Millburn instead of taking the Path to 23rd Street. The TJ's is a 60 second walk from the 23rd Street stop. It is faster than driving anywhere, cheaper than driving anywhere, and much less of a pain in the ass. I guess if you're feeding a family of 6, or buying groceries for a 2-month period, transporting things in a car is easier...but how many people are in that boat? You can fit a lot of stuff in 2-3 of those sturdy paper bags TJ's gives you.


Milburn is a 20min to 1/2 hour drive. If you're shopping on the weekend (which a lot of us do) then it is probably faster to drive to Milburn. Also easier to pick up a bunch of stuff and get it to your place, especially if you're not particularly close to the path.


Not to mention you can stop at the Millburn Deli and get the best version of the North Jersey centric style Sloppy Joe sandwich. Ask for it 'old school', which means - butter the bread, go easy on the coleslaw and Russian dressing, and avoid the pickle in the wrap.

Bodhi, did it ever occur to you that not everyone has a car? I use to have one(never let family borrow it...my poor poor car).


For people who dont have cars, the easiest option is hitting up TJ's or WF in the city, which earlier in this thread I advocated. What I find silly is to drive out to Edgewater, when driving to Millburn is so much easier and faster. And, that was my only point.


And if you're in the Whole Foods/Target area you're minutes away from Church's Kitchen on Springfield Avenue in Vauxhall-east of WF/Target. Best fried chicken anywhere. Closed Sun/Mon. Be prepared to wait 20 minutes. Judy Church and her husband cook everything to order, with love.

Re: Henry's Wok, Westside Avenue

We managed to find parking right there. No beer on tap!! $4.25 for a bottle of Heineken, the same for a bottle of Brooklyn Lager-no glasses, of course. God awful (tough and thick skin) won tons in spicy garlic sauce. Decent shrimp rolls. House vodka was Zemkoff, never heard of it-but the smart guy next to me knocked back 3 Absolut and cranberries in about ten minutes-the bartender gave him pretty nice pours it seemed. Worth a return visit? Not for me.

I'm sure people from Staten Island can find a supermarket without having to pay the Bayonne Bridge toll to go shopping. And Bayonne has an excellent newish Shop Rite downtown. I can't see people from Newark fighting the two bridge traffic then the 440 traffic to go supermarket shopping either.

Sadly, the idea of 'keep to your right' is lost on most people, whether it's walking on a sidewalk, using paths through Liberty State Park, or on four lane roadways. If everyone just kept to their right a lot of the issues people here are mentioning would go away.

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.

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.
