Re: Hudson County Register's son arrested for marijuana possession, Jersey City police say

I'm not going to debate with you, but since you believe crimes are only acts that violate other people's rights, then I'm very happy you agree with me.

It's the beginning of what? Sensibility? The only idiots here are the ones like you that believe it's better to lock people up for minor drug offenses like marijuana possession instead of decriminalizing it and fining people. Maybe if the cops didn't spend their manpower and our tax dollars to arrest people for minor possession, they could focus on the much bigger issues at hand like the ever-growing heroin problem we have in this state. You said you "do not want to see JC SINK to that level", but I hate to break it to you since you must be living under a rock.......JERSEY CITY HAS A HEROIN PROBLEM.....a big one. WAKE UP or move 'cause we're already below that level.

So he was arrested with a little over an ounce? Why is this news worthy? Someone should tell him to move to NY, where you can possess up to an ounce of weed and receive a civil citation ($100 fine).

I checked out their website, and apparently they use Counter Culture beans, which will make them probably the best coffee in the area. I hope they grind and brew to order!

Does anyone have any information about this space? Does anyone know if a company has leased the space already? Is it multiple retail spaces or one large space? Construction has definitely picked up in the past month.

Hey, if the area is getting too nice for your taste, there's always Newark. I hear it's really up and coming these days.

It was also opening night, plus their change machine was out of order, so they had to handle the change requests on top of the beer orders. I actually waited much longer for my quarters due to the nonstop beer orders, which showed that at least they had their priorities straight.

The area is relatively safe, minus the occasional smash and grab with the cars.

@psyop yeah they have a full bar. I thought their beer selection was awesome. It's really nice to have a bar that offers micro-brews. Definitely worth checking out.

Re: New York Times /THE HUNT: Arizona Transplants Survive Sticker Shock & Rent Downtown JC

Hey spider, I guess I should clarify my post. I don't think the store itself is a POS. In fact, the times I was in there I thought their products were fine. I like Shoprite as a chain. In fact, if management fired all the POS people that work at the Marin Ave Shoprite, I think it would actually be a really nice place. And I agree with you Gibbons....such trials and tribulations.....why don't we give these jobs to people who actually want to work and save their homes?

Re: unauthorized parking

Home away from home


How long have they been there? Depending on how nice you're feeling, you could wait a little bit and then tow them, but I would definitely tow them if they aren't gone soon. It's YOUR parking space, and your space that you've paid to use. You have all the right to tow them. It sucks getting towed, but after all, they should have known better.

Re: 150 Bay St Construction

I don't think you have to be an artist to rent here, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm under the impression that they would like their building to be full of working artists, but I think it's open to anyone. Definitely worth looking into. I read online a few reviews of the place. Generally people seem to like it with a few exceptions complaining about the management of the building. 14' ceilings sound awesome!

Does anyone know what's going on with this space? Every time I'm getting a cup of coffee at the cafe there's ongoing construction across the street. Any info would be appreciated.

Re: Downtown: Williamsburg's Barcade (Bar Arcade) Coming to Newark Avenue
Home away from home
Home away from home


I like pinball as much as the next person, but ultimately it's up to the owners discretion. I think it's better to just accept the fact that Barcade has made it clear that pinball isn't gonna happen :( (although, I'm definitely on your side with this one).

Also, to add to Heights' comment...for real diehard pinball players, if you ever find yourself up in the real sticks of northern NJ, checkout a hole-in-the-wall video rental store called Castle Video in Branchville. They house about 20 pinball machines, but this place is obscurely hidden in the middle of nowhere.

Re: Downtown: Forced to open safe by brutal thugs; pal taken hostage

Yeah, you're right. I don't really know the whole story, and I definitely don't know if the guy coming home was a thug. Truth be told, I was just making a joke. So on a serious note, I agree with you that this guy could be an honest, hard working member of society. I do find the whole thing to be a little fishy though, and the robbers more than likely were acquainted with the guy they robbed. I agree that they probably did work for this guy or knew from someone who did have access to his home. Either way, the guy had a terrible day. The whole hostage thing was stupid of these two. Kidnapping? That carries an ordinary sentence of 15-30 years for a first time offense. If the guy that they kidnapped doesn't I.D. these two, I would suspect he's an accomplice.

It sounds like these two guys returning home flunked thuggery 101! Aren't you always supposed to "watch your back", "keep one eye open", all that thug advice? The two that actually did the robbing are just as stupid. Stealing a phone and a laptop in this day and age? Don't most phones and laptops have the ability to be located using GPS? Idiots.

Re: What location was your bike stolen from (time, type of lock, etc)?
Home away from home
Home away from home


Yeah, you definitely could hurt yourself if you fell on the chain, but it's a small risk I'm willing to take in order to protect my bike. Yes, I agree if someone really wants your bike they'll get it...I just hope they plan ahead and have a gas powered diamond cutter in their back pocket + three minutes to spare to cut through it. Also, I could recommend this for those that don't want to lug around the chain: The real secure combination would be to loop the chain through the frame and back tire, and use the New York U-Lock to secure the front tire. That's a lot of security, and I find the chain works well on it's own if you're just stopping into a place for a few minutes. However, these products won't cover any hospital bills and lawyer fees when you return to find your bike thief still in the process of trying to steal your property and give him the good ol' fashioned ass kicking that he's deserved.

This is the ONLY lock you should use if you really value your investment, especially in an area with a reputation for bike theft. I know it's heavy and a pain to lug around (wear it around your waist or across your chest), but this thing is a beast of a chain and will protect your bike frame. If you have a half decent bicycle and know you're stopping somewhere while you're out, always lock your bike when you stop somewhere no matter how long you'll be inside! Make sure you lock your bicycle to something that is immovable and tall enough that it can't be hoisted over with the chain still attached (i.e. a telephone pole). Basically, your frame is safe if you use this lock, but handlebars, seat, and wheels are still not as secure and still susceptible to theft.

Re: Jersey City Cabs won't stop for black people
Home away from home
Home away from home


So the guy who was saying that the cabs won't stop for black people finally got a cab? I guess my point is that I think he may have been a little quick to throw the race card in the hat so to speak. Afterall, if you were the only white person in the cab line at that time, I think he knows well enough that the cabs stop for black people, as well as all the other non whites in the line....otherwise that line wouldn't exist you know?

Re: From "OX" to "BOX"
Home away from home
Home away from home


The one time I went here, I didn't have a good experience. The food itself was actually quite tasty (despite that the portions were small). However, the service just ruined it for me. The waitress could barely speak English, which wasn't a deal breaker for me. It was the fact that she ignored me and my friend for most of our meal. No refills on hot water for my tea, and not even a, "how's your meal so far?" She just talked with another employee at the bar for the duration of our meal. I also had to wave our waitress over from the bar to get our check after waiting for nearly 15 minutes after our table was cleared. I forgot to mention that we were the only two customers there at the time. I'm always willing to give a place a few chances. Three times though, and that's it. I will say that I definitely had more satisfying meals and service at Sawadee and More.

Re: Downtown: Williamsburg's Barcade (Bar Arcade) Coming to Newark Avenue

I've been looking forward to this place for a long time. I'm hoping it brings more businesses to the area (like a specific supermarket chain that specializes in organic food and products that will remain nameless) once retailers realize people in Jersey City want better quality vs. mediocrity. I mean, let's be honest, raise your hand if you're happy this isn't another mediocre asian fusion restaurant! With all joking aside, this should help be the catalyst that drives business up around here. Thanks for investing in the neighborhood Barcade!

So since you were the only white person in line, did the cabbies end up bumping you to the front so you could get in their cab? Did you see any black person get into a cab in front of you?
