Re: New bagel shop on Newark Ave.

Went there this morning. Free coffee was pretty good. The bagel was on par with what the place on Grand St was selling. It seemed a bit stale. Prices were good. People were friendly, I told the cashier they needed to put out a tip jar, and she looked at me like I had three heads.
I peaked into the back and didn't see a bagel boiler machine, but they could be like H&H and deliver from the main bakery.
I don't like the name.
Wonder Bagel doesn't need to worry.


I agree. While the prices are decent, the quality of the bagels leaves much to be desired. Extremely dry and stale tasting. Did I mention dry?

I like the changes Key Foods is putting in. But I prefer the old C-Town, where you could go in hungover on a Sunday and they'd be blaring that really fast Hispanic music, and you could pick up 2 guava pies for $3.
I just hope they do something about their dumpsters. We got a lot of trash blowing around from the dumpster set-up now.


You MISS C-Town???? Because you can't go in there hungover and get guava pies? I suggest you reevaluate your priorities or move to a different area of Jersey City.

You can believe whatever you want, in your home, in your church, or with others of similar beliefs. But my point is that if a grown adult speaks to me about "god" or religion, I will treat them the same way I would as if a grown adult were speaking to me about flying superheroes, talking mice, or coyote & roadrunner antics being based in reality. I see no difference honestly.

If a grown adult came to me and started talking about their belief that reindeer fly, a fat white bearded man squeezed down chimneys to deliver toys, or that mickey mouse was real, or that there was a person that could fly and wore a cape and his name was Superman, I would consider them completely crazy and walk away. So no, I don't have to be extra tolerant to religious people that believe in god. I consider them just as crazy as any other delusional people.

Well there you go. A lot of non-believers see religious people the exact same way. Believing in something with zero evidence to back it up is a little "crazy" in my eyes. The point being made is that a "flying spaghetti monster" is no more valid or believable than any "god."

What gets me is that if someone told you they believed a "flying spaghetti monster" was real, and worshipped and prayed to it, most people would indeed call that person crazy. But when someone says the exact same thing, only substitutes "god" then you are insulting them and not being understanding and tolerant. The sad truth is that there is no more proof that a "god" exists than a "flying spaghetti monster."

Quite honestly, I do find it insulting when religious people try to push their beliefs on me. I'm completely open to any debate as long as there are facts to back it up. An atheist can make their argument based on facts (thus far) and support that argument with facts and science that there is no god. A person of faith can only back up their beliefs with just that... faith. There is no more proof that god exists, than that of the Loch Ness Monster. It MAY be out there, but thus far, there is zero evidence of it, and until there is evidence, stop trying to convince me it is fact.

In typical Jersey Journal fashion, reporting 30% of the story. They should just publish headlines. "Major disaster hits Jersey City." Then have a paragraph of copy under it talking about a school's football team. Sadly, that's the value of this paper these days.

Man, am I pissed. I made it what I thought clear to the nice lady behind the glass food partitions at Shah Taj that what I was doing was ordering for two.

Previously in the evening, beginning at six, I had tried to order delivery from Medina (mimimum order $20 last month, today it's $25). The nice lady on the phone was so flustered, and kept having me call back, that it grew dark. That's when I branched into the former place.

Ah. Finally. Shadman's, where they are willing to give you 1/2 pint portions for $2 each, if you ask. Wish they'd deliver.


Huh? So you ate at the previous place that is no longer there, and at the current place all in one evening?

WHY? This is what I don't understand. While I would love to see a highline, park, or whatever, I just don't get how the city can sue someone that bought this legally. Does the city get first chance to buy everything? If so, that really isn't fair. This is the equivalent of me telling my neighbors how to decorate their house, even though I don't own their house. I just feel I should be able to.

Get over YOURselves.


It matters because we assume you are an educated adult. It is a reflection of you, like it or not. Sure, we all make typos now and then, but to defend it is ridiculous. Would you send in a resume or cover letter with "your" instead of "you're?" Just because it's a "blog" or "forum" isn't an excuse for ignorance.

Actually, longtime "netiquette" calls for NOT calling people out on grammar & spelling unless the context opens them up to it, ex: a misspelled post about their superior education. Or it's so extreme as to be unreadable, like a 500 word paragraph.
The metaphor is a conversation, not a dissertation.


So sorry. Didn't read the updated internet rules. So as long as we're talking about gentrification on Newark Ave, consistent bad grammar is acceptable? So I can say that 4+4=17 as long as the post isn't related to math or me saying how great I am at math? Well I learned something new today.

Once again, no description whatsoever. Why even bother reporting it? What good does it even serve to report this? If a store gets robbed, there are signs all over with a description of the thief, or a police sketch or something. Why is it that the "paper" won't report this? Wait, don't answer. I know why.

How did it blow up in the peoples faces that supported them being here??? Who said anyone wanted Jersey City portrayed as a party town (or anything for that matter)? YOU only assumed that was the case. Because YOU seem to know everything. The "supporters" simply said, "this will not affect your life in any way. Nor will it portray Beverly Hills...

On Feb. 8, there was a crime rally at City Hall in Jersey City. Of course, City Council members were present and nearly 100 residents. The big question is where was Mayor Healy? As I walked into City Hall, I saw Fox 5 News outside. I went over to talk to the TV news crew to ask them were they ready for the rally and they told me they were there for the "Jersey Shore" story. I couldn't believe what they said.

Celebrity stories are more important than the safety of Jersey City residents. It made no sense to me. But what was more interesting was I found out Mayor Healy did an interview addressing the "Jersey Shore" story. He said he would love to see them come to Jersey City. If he can interview about a story like that but not show up to a City Council meeting to address the public about the ongoing crime issue, he needs to step down.

Also if the show does come to Jersey City, it means more police will be focused on them, which will take more eyes away from the rest of the city. If the mayor can't control crime now, what makes you think he can control it with a popular TV show.
Mayor Healy, do you have any common sense?

Says the Guy debating the value of Jersey Shore on a small online web forum in the middle of a week day...


Jersey Shore is nothing but a modern day minstrel show of Italian American stereotypes.


My responses are a few sentences. Not a 40 paragraph diatribe on how "reality" tv is somehow pertuating a stereotype of a group of people. You know why stereotypes exist? Because there is a grain of truth to them. You may not like them, or agree with them, but that's a fact. A bunch of people didn't just say, "hey, you know what we should do. We should start saying that Italians are in the mafia, and live in north jersey in gaudy houses, while their wives stay home and gossip about the neighborhood." Is that true of all Italians? No. Are there other people of different backgrounds that do the same thing? Yes. People need to stop being so sensitive to every little issue. I am of 100% italian descent and I could care less about the Jersey stereotype. I don't fit in it, and it doesn't bother me one bit. Lighten up a bit. The entire universe is not out to get you believe it or not. You place far too much importance on yourself.

"He said because Newark’s emergency personnel would likely be called to mitigate any incidents involving Snooki and JWoww, the risk to Newark residents was just too great."I hope you can appreciate that my first priority is the safety and well-being of citizens and visitors," the mayor wrote."

Newark is practically Camden. And if Manhattan wasn't as close as it is, Newark WOULD BE Camden. Who's he kidding? Yeah there might be incidents involving these two. But never mind the daily shootings, muggings, car thefts, blatant open drug use on the streets. It really does sound like he's more embarrassed for Newark rather than "protecting" it. Putz

Nobody trying to get anyone. Just do the best you can. But sadly, this is one of those, "I believe what I believe" and "therefore you all should believe the same thing." This will be hilarious to see their "damage control." Let me guess... coupons for big discounts? Rethink your retaliations; and at very least grow up!

You my friend will never get my business again. If you don't let people in based on what they are portrayed on in a tv show, then you should perform background checks on every patron that comes in. There is a park around the corner where drug deals go on 24/7, and I've seen those people go in that store and come out with liquor. You really need a reality check pal. A real reality check, not an MTV one.


Oh no! I'm sure he's quaking in his boots.


He should be. Word of mouth is the best publicity. Be it good or bad. I know at least a dozen people that were very regular customers that will never go there again. If he thinks his little antics will gain him more customers than he will lose, he is in for a big surprise. But hey, he still owns Liberty Harbor and the Beer Garden. Good thing that has a very upscale clientele.
