But I can get a beer and a sandwich at Barcade for $10.

Sports bar would have been a much better bet than tapas IMO.

Does anybody ever actually want a tapas place? I've always thought of them as something I suffer through when friends want to go out for an "occasion". Oh cool, tapas. An annoying $500 split check where nobody gets a full meal, and nobody(staff included) ever remembers what you ordered. Sweet.

Hope the sangria is good at least.

Damn, per the article, this is the same owner as 345 Grove.

Hopefully this doesn't end up another absolute prime real estate hole in the ground. I really like that block and useful parts of it keep burning down!

I was born here in the 1950s, so I guess I qualify to answer your question...yes, they were appalled. Just like I'm sure the Victorians were appalled when my parents moved here in the 40s. Just like I'm sure the Lenni Lenape were appalled by the Dutch settlers.

Times change. The city changes. Reminiscing about the past is fun, but it's more fun to embrace what's coming next. And if it's something you don't like, no worries; stick around a while and it will change again.


Perfect post.

Can we take a moment to appreciate our public servants?

I was out getting coffee this morning and watched this whole thing unfold around the corner from me.
Police and firefighters were on the scene lickity split, and had the necessary streets blocked off with officers stationed at intersections directing traffic to both keep commuters moving and to let EMS vehicles through.
The firefighters were up on the roof with demo saws and hoses taking care of business in no time. It was great to watch people that knew what they were doing do it with speed and confidence. It takes some guts(read: balls) to stand on a roof right next to a flame as tall as you are and still manage to get the job done.

So yeah, that's all. Thanks to everybody that was out there taking care of business this morning. It looked like the fire was controlled very quickly so hopefully there's minimal property damage and personal loss.

All the best to everybody affected in the building. Been a rough couple years for that section of Grove St. there.

I'm pretty sure this conversation has happened in every single growing city in every single era of history.

Nobody's really wrong. Nobody's really right.

I will say this though... Downtown is still the best for bar hopping on a Monday!

Minor Monty's update. So a couple of small changes that I noticed this morning en route to the PATH since it was one of the VERY rare days when there was work ongoing.

They have installed some nice looking faux gas lamps out front above the entrance, but the inside looks like it has barely progressed in the past year. The wooden bar frame is in place, but no frontage or bartop. Was pretty dim inside, so couldn't see much else, but the place looked gloomy - didn't look like the light fixtures have been installed.

There is now a sign on the outside of the wooden barrier facing the street that reads "ATLAS". A new name perhaps? It struck me that AT LAST might be more appropriate...


I don't know what bar you were looking at, but it looked pretty darn done to me.

They're closer than you think.

I don't understand why they're trying to rebrand as Atlas. You know damn well everybody around here is calling it Monty's. It's Monty's.

Has anybody gotten mugged on Newark Ave in the last decade?

I got no problem with you, I just think it's funny that you say the same stuff my parents do. "The Lower East Side!? Are you crazy? That place is a hole!"

It's important to keep your mental roadmaps updated to fit with current situations. Downtown Jersey City, much like Alphabet City, Bushwick, and Hoboken, are not dicey neighborhoods anymore and really haven't been in a long time.

I've always thought Jersey City was a great football watching town.

Lucky's is awesome. There's a crew of regulars that makes every game interesting.
PJ Ryan's and O'Hara's both have great food, good beer selections, and every game on.
Hopscotch the same. If you want a quieter vibe, head to Barcade. They'll put your game on if you ask.
Big spots like Porta, South House, and Zepplin Hall also have games on.

Honestly, it's harder for me to find a spot to get away from football usually.

I think I was very clear in addressing that.

To me it felt like we had a pretty good handle on steering this thing somewhere that both old and new residents were into it. This feels like somebody else's interests are being served for a weekend shitshow that is going to serve suburban kids that come here to get wild on Saturday. That leaves us residents with basically a blank spot on our main street.

Whatever. It's all good.

Indoor mini golf would kill!

I'd go broke.

1Republik won't be the end of the world, but like others said, it'll just be a pretty loud and blaring admission that we're doing this thing and there's no going back.
Talk all you want about gentrification and make it sound like, "well you knew this was going to happen!"
Well, kind of, but there's a lot of ways you can go about changing the landscape of a neighborhood. Surely there's a middle ground between cars on cinder blocks and dudes in salmon shorts puking in the middle of the street at 10pm.
A bar like Archer or a restaurant like Roman Nose or a retail store like Kannibal or Word is a great representation of where I thought we were headed and where I had hoped we were going to continue to head.

If given the choice, I would absolutely pick hanging out in a park full of junkies over walking down Washington St. on a weekend. Maybe I'm weird. I don't know, man.

Re: SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILIES IN JERSEY CITY HIGHLIGHT GROWING MIGRANT CRISIS

I had just started typing that aspect of it out but was worried I was starting to ramble.

The kids thing is right on. The parents who brought the kids here will be happy to have their feet on stable ground once again. It's the kids who will have to absorb most of the slings and arrows of being the foreign kid at school and in the neighborhood. Those are the ones who end up getting "radicalized".

Nice pr piece but people are concerned especially what is happening in Europe, especially France. The Catholic Church embraced the refugees in France and gave them land.

Jacques was killed while celebrating Mass.


Since we are comparing CONTINENTS 'Europe', I'd bet / surmise that Americas as a continent, is far a bigger threat or problem to the world ... noting you have to include Central and South America which includes but not limited to all the gangs, drug cartels, people trafficking and black market weapon sales

Population of Continents: Europe 742.5 million
Americas 953.7 million

Europe on paper is one of the safest continents to live in with the Americas and Africa being the worst

Resized Image




I think the troubling part about "terror" attacks, especially the recent spat of Islam related ones, is that unlike drug crimes which occur in much greater frequency, these attacks are entirely random.
If you want to avoid getting shot during a drug deal, you can significantly reduce your odds by not dealing drugs, not approaching drug dealers during a drug deal, and not standing around known locations for drug dealing.
In France if you want to avoid having a truck driven into you or getting your throat slit in church, or being shot at a concert, your choice is like, stay inside all the time I guess?

I think it's really important to keep the eyes on the prize and constantly remind people that terror attacks in general are no higher now than they were in the 60s or 70s, and that crime and murder are WAY down across the entire globe from just 20 years ago.
Still, the randomness of the recent attacks is what I think really freaks people out and even as a staunch progressive who believes everybody deserves to be treated on an individual basis, I'd be lying if I wasn't a little bit un-stoked on bringing in refugees from the Middle East.

I guess no news is good news on the first few families that arrived here though.

So much of Trump would be less mystifying if you've ever spent any amount of time with someone from Queens.

Nope. Just from Queens.

P&K is as large as Tender Shoot and has a better selection.

It's also almost a literal stone's throw away. I mean, it'd be a pretty good heave, but there's probably somebody that could get it there.

We had these installed at 1st and Erie a couple months back.

All gone within a week.

They just installed new ones a couple weeks back. New improved design. Half are gone and littering the street.

So stupid.

So much money wasted.

Identify the problem spots, intelligently select where they should be no parking, then bump out the curbs. It's the only way to deal with the issue.
Also, make sure your stop signs are actually visible.
