I'm surprised no one mentioned Eataly since they're now conveniently located in the WTC. I've only been there once (the Flatiron store) and they didn't pass my banana test, a very scientific barometer of prices, haha. They had the highest prices I've encountered anywhere for bananas $1.29/lb or about 79 cents for a medium banana. I'm going to be at WTC today and will check out their fish.


dude, would you buy truffles from a bodega? Why are you looking at bananas at Eataly?

I've had this email notification a couple times. Haven't yet figured out why. Once the package was "lost" and the other time it ended up getting dropped off at an access point a few days later. No slip either time.

Melania has said her platform will be fighting cyber bullying, unless that has changed already.

The statistics don't cover people returning wallets. So they have no bearing on, if a wallet is stolen, what groups of people overwhelmingly are likely to be the culprits.

The implication in the OP was that the person stole the wallet. I'm happy this turned out not to be the case.

And I'm not the one who originally asked, but that poster was right. When you make a post about someone who took a wallet, you should give as many descriptive details as possible, including race.


I don't know why I keep coming back here and letting your shit get me worked up.

Never had an issue with GSB. They've always been accommodating, even going out of there way to help. The staff can be a bit disorganized at times, but the owner (Rodney) has always stepped up to the plate to make things right. Hopefully you'll give them another shot in the future.


Second this. GSB has always been helpful for me and even gone out of their way to try fix something that was basically unfixable.

If this actually happens, I'm 100% positive someone has a lot of dirt on him and it's BAD. Could be related to his own version of Bridgegate, when he stopped traffic at the Holland Tunnel, or something more nefarious. There is some irrefutable proof, probably in writing, of whatever the dirt is.

He didn't make a deal for Senate or some other position because his moves over the past several years have been specifically aimed at the Governor position.

Whatever it is we may find out soon. Can't wait to see what it is.

Was thinking the same thing. I don't know what or if there are mandatory sentences but seems like those are reserved for drug crimes so the prison industry can keep their stock piles full.

Doubtful victims family will get justice...My bet is community service and 5 years probation for the perp.

A brief look on Trulia finds 36 apartments in 07302 for under $1,900 a month, many of which are one bedrooms, and some of which are more than 800 sqft.

And I'm sure a broker would be able to find you 30 more. That's 60 places for under $2,000 that took less than five minutes to locate.

The disconnect between the real Jersey City and the dystopian nightmare many JCListers live in is terrifying. And sad.


...and less than another five minutes to see that many of those in your trulia link require a month broker fee (which as you know, cause you're smart, could easily put a place out of someones price range) or are actually a single room for rent in someone else's ap, maybe two rooms in someone else's duplex. Plus the ones in paulus hook towers are low income.

It sucks. for many people.
It must be nice to live in your Utopian world where DTJC is being whitewashed. Dont worry, you'll have your own little "Plesantville" soon enough.

there was what some might call a mall before 9/11 at the wtc, but i would call it just a collection of stores. in any event, imo, the bathrooms before 9/11 were more PATH-centric and regualrly policed by PA cops, frequented by hobos and cleaned by PA hired staff. the new bathrooms are more mall-centric - no place for the homeless to wash up.


In the '80s through early '90s, I recall there was a pretty depressing collection of dumpy stores just one level below street level. By the late '90s, though, they had gone noticeably upscale with more suburban shopping mall-type stores. I remember there was a Crabtree & Evelyn, Borders, Nine West and maybe Banana Republic. The PATH restrooms were located on the level between the train platform and the shops, adjacent to the saddest looking bar in the world with the saddest looking patrons. I used the restrooms on numerous occasions pre-9/11 and they were pretty clean. The odd thing was I never once saw a homeless person in there. The bar - I think it was called Commuter Bar (or something with an equal lack of imagination) - never seemed to have more than two or three patrons in there. Those who needed a stiff drink to face that PATH ride home, I suppose.


It was called the Commuter Cafe and it was a great "old man" bar. Perfect if you wanted a drink and didn't feel like leaving the bldg and walking ten mins to O'Hara's.
You could also get a drink at Akbars on that same level. Both were just before the turnstiles if I recall.

Why does anyone think downtown JC is a hipster haven when it's literally just filled with corny white people or people who have lived here for years? People cry hipster when they just want to rant about anyone remotely young because they feel out of touch and old.

The science (kind of), backs up the triathalon numbers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_performance

On firm, flat ground, a 70 kg (150 lb) person requires about 60 watts [5] to walk at 5 km/h (3.1 mph). That same person on a bicycle, on the same ground, with the same power output, can travel at 15 km/h (9.3 mph) using an ordinary bicycle,[6] so in these conditions the energy expenditure of cycling is one-third of walking.

Cycling versus walking = 3:1 in terms of energy expended. Triathlon puts it at around 4:1. Right ballpark to me.


And, this is precisely what I was trying to convey in my original reply. In terms of actual effort (or, energy spent) running a marathon has a similar calorie burn as riding a century. The rule of thumb for calories / mile for running is about 130, and about 35 for riding. Those numbers are for an average male at an above-average effort (meaning, the person is pushing a bit and running or pedaling at a fairly good clip). If you do the math, 35 calories / mile times 100 miles equals 3,500 calories, while running 26.2 miles * 130 calories / mile equals ~3,400 calories. In other words, their energy expenditure is very similar.

Yes, different sports, and the physical tolls are different, but the energy spent is similar and the training and effort are definitely similar.


this is a bullshit argument.
By your logic, that same 150 lb person will burn the same amount of cals sleeping for 50 hours. Does that mean sleeping for a week is the same as running a marathon?

Meh.

Consider this: an Ironman (or other iron-distance races) consists of 2.4 miles swimming, 112 mile bike ride and a full marathon (26.2 miles). The three segments are meant to be comparable in terms of challenge/effort.


So you're saying, in your personal experience, your marathon(s) was as easy or easier than your century(ies)?


That's not why a 2.4 mile swim is a leg of an iron man, nor is it the reason 112mi is the bike portion.

From the wiki page:
"The idea for the original Ironman Triathlon arose during the awards ceremony for the 1977 Oahu Perimeter Relay...

...debating which athletes were more fit, runners or swimmers...

...the debate should be settled through a race combining the three existing long-distance competitions already on the island: the Waikiki Roughwater Swim (2.4 mi./3.86 km), the Around-Oahu Bike Race (115 mi./185.07 km; originally a two-day event) and the Honolulu Marathon (26.219 mi./42.195 km)."


It's almost universally agreed that 26.2 takes a bigger toll on the body than 100 miles in the saddle.
