You could always take this route:

Mind your business and keep to yourself unless someone is directly bothering you.

I was down having a catch at the Colgate clock park over the weekend. There were dogs everywhere. One was even nice enough to return an errant throw that went over my head back to me. Thanks pup! How kind of you.

It's a large, self contained open space. It's a park. Let a dog be a dog and run around a little bit.

That's some very nice, "we are the world" writing there Duh. But, as I discussed in the original thread regarding dogs off leash, the irresponsible dog owners caused this, not individuals like me.

I've explained ad nauseum what happens when people approach offending dog owners (whether it's dog off leash, or not cleaning poop), and the absolute nasty responses received. There are many responsible dog owners out there (many of whom agree with our stance on this), but it's the few ruining it for the many.

And unlike our friendly neighborhood Batman believes (Vigilante), those behaviors will change, or people will face the consequences via increased enforcement (as the OP has experienced). The difference between the past and now, is that you've got my voracity behind it (and before the usual taunts of "loser" and "got nothing better to do" save your breath, I can multi task my life, this doesn't take much effort at all). The laws are not written to be selectively enforced. If you see cops willfully ignoring stuff like this, get the badge number and call it in.

Maybe this way, Batman over here will have less and less friends giving him the free pass he's enjoyed for so long. At least now we know to focus more on HP.

Either way, it's being addressed at the neighborhood level and you will eventually see an increase in enforcement over time. That's the unfortunate side effect of progress.

I love how people are posting here mad at the mayor for enforcing laws and making the cops get off their asses to do their jobs. You can argue the point all day whether or not it's right to enforce this law or that law, but you're still in the wrong. I've gotten a ticket once for rolling slowly through a stop sign in Montclair at 1 AM after playing ice hockey. No one was around. It added points to my license. It sucked big time. But I'm in the wrong. I don't go crying to the Montclair message board that the cops were mean and I'm mad. I paid my fine and moved on.

I don't think it's cheering our neighbors' misfortunes as much as it is tired of hearing them whine like children when they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Let's grow up guys and actually live like responsible adults. Probably get a lot less tickets that way.

I hear ya Piert1025. I actually find people cheering on their neighbors being fined and summoned, to be a compromise of the quality of life. Perhaps a little understanding, even if accompanied by criticism, would temper the complete self-satisfying douchebaggery typically displayed here. The issue is not the ordinances themselves, it is that they need not always be applied. The spirit of the law is to keep people, dogs - whatever - safe, clean, well maintained...civil. But the letter of the law can be used to punish someone drinking a beer on their steps (?work it out in court!?), or letting their dog run off the leash in an uninhabited place which does not pose a threat to dog or person. It is incredible that most of the people on this site, are able to ascertain such critical perspective, given the immeasurable height of the horse from which they view the situation. Forget about the horrid crumbling school system, shootings, murders, entrenched trans-generational poverty - it?s not drinking a beer on the street and leashing your dog that will save us all. I will cut this shorter than I'd like, as I know most of you have to get to planning your Friday night of washing the shart stains out of your underpants and listening to your neighbors with a decibel meter.

A man matching the description in the OP was over on Erie today walking north from Newark and I unfortunately wound up right behind him. I crossed the street and sat down by Torico's until he left, but he was yelling as he walked along Erie and then he stood at First and Erie for a good three or four minutes screaming angrily at imaginary companions about irrational things. This is the first person I can ever recall over here who was remotely violent, which he definitely seemed to have the potential to be. I am a little concerned because I live right there and walk my dogs all alone multiple times a day.


that's Johnny HardHat.

He's schizophrenic, but harmless. He enjoys wearing hardhats, playing his vuvuzela, and carrying an umbrella at all times.

He wears nicer clothes than most crazies, new outfit everyday. This leads me to believe he has a place to stay each night (family member, or otherwise) but is set free and wanders around during the day. He likes to stand on the corner of Jersey & Columbus and shout at passing cars. He looks lcean, well groomed, always has interesting accessories and props. He certainly has schizophrenia though.

Just cross the street or walk down another block if you want to avoid him. He's not assaulting anyone, so just ignore him. He's not at all violent.

So what's the deal with the 'Speakeasy' there? Is it like PDT in the city, or just some basement bar in the restaurant?

I've grabbed pizza from their little stand a few times. Pretty good slice for a dollar and a quarter.

Replace throat with collar and that's what I originally meant. I apologize for the strong image. I'm not going to slam dogs on the ground, but with bigger dogs in particular, yes, I will take control of the dog until its owner does so appropriately.

Again, I apologize for the strong language.

The distance between the prospective building and the grove street path is much less than the distance between the old maxwell's location and the hoboken path.

Re: Increase in homeless and/or drug addicts in DTJC

You're going to have homeless people in a city, nothing is going to change that.

As long as they aren't harassing the populace and making a scene on a regular basis they don't bother me much.

Also, there are places (shelters) for the homeless to go to. I have seen Taco (shopping cart lady) in a full on business suit being driven around by who I presume is her sister in an attempt to find her a job. The old polish man who traverses up and down Columbus drinks a lot and leaves bottles around, but in reality, he's not harming anyone but himself.

I am not digging through the slop in this thread but here are my thoughts:

If you're on the street/sidewalks keep your dog on a leash.

If you're in a park and your dog is well trained, let it run around and be a dog for a bit. go jump in the canal by the colgate clock. play catch at lincoln park. have at it.

Clean up your dog's shit, and throw it in a trashcan.

that is all.

It's entertaining because a police officer took a vehicle while he was off duty, got hammered, and then started firing his gun.

I use a Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit U-lock around the frame and through the rear wheel, and a KryptoFlex? 525 Looped Cable 2.5' through the U-lock, around the frame, and through the front wheel.

Keep what belongs to you safe. I also store my bike inside and never lock it up outside over night.

POLSKA.

Sure, the exterior looks straight up communist, but in fact from what I understand it is quite nice inside. It's not a 'flop house.'

The building is owned by a polish man, and it's a rental property on a 'need to know a guy' basis. A friend of mine looked at an apartment on the top floor and said it was very nice. Modern, new appliances, etc.

I am a big F1 fan and cannot wait for this event. I am quite upset they're not holding the race at LSP, but the weehawkin track is much more appealing with the elevation changes taken into account.

Does anyone on JCList ever start a thread in support of something, or purely for naysaying?

I am very excited for this race!
