Between Ibby's and Rumi Turkish Grill, I think Ibby's falafel is better but Rumi's hummus is the winner in that matchup.

(Two Aprons is pretty good too but I stopped going there after one-too-many times of not being able to buy a chicken because he was saving them for more regular customers.)

My favorite hummus and falafel though come from Crisp in the city. I hit that place up for lunch a couple times a week.


I think ppl pre-order those chickens.

Re: Attending the J.C. Public Schools

I've heard that if you are a student in a charter school, if you move away to another town, you can still attend that school.

Also I have to ask...why would anyone want to put their kid in a JC school if they live somewhere else? It's not like the schools here are top notch. Unless we are talking about McNair. From what I remember from the news a while back there were employees of the BOe who had their kids enrolled there who were not residents. They were not paying anything and I think they changed the policy that restitution had tobe paid in instances like this. I could be wrong.

And I have to disagree with jersey mom. If this is a nonresident child in the prek program you should report it. The prek program is free to our residents bc of Abbott funding. This person would be getting free daycare when they don't deserve it. It's just wrong.

Are you really arguing this can't happen by accident? Really?


Fine. Tell me how you can park in a red zone by accident? Please do, because we all learn when we get our licenses that a curb painted red means you cannot park there, EVER. Every zone I've seen painted red or yellow has a No Parking sign.

The only thing I can see how you may accidentally park in a yellow zone is when the sign says no parking on school days. Other than that, most yellow zones are the areas that are painted on the end of a street, with No Parking signs on them.

Just wanted to chime in here. We order from here often and we love it! Today I ordered a salad for the first time and it was great. I've been pretty disappointed with the salad options in JC and was happy to get a tasty and filling salad for a very reasonable price.

Re: Jersey City cops shoot and kill four dogs

Perhaps the dogs were snarling and barking at the officers aggressively, which led them to feel like they were going to be bitten. The guy was asked to leash the dogs and he didn't. How is this any different than a man who has a gun and is waving it around? He'd get shot too if the officers asked him to put his gun down and he wouldn't.

I am a dog lover, own 1 dog, he's 14.

With that said, do you know Gary. I have met him before. Have you seen his dogs. I have. Are they dangerous, damn right. These dogs are just in the wrong hands. When there are pit bulls, unchained, on the loose and in a residential area, cops are trained to shoot first, ask questions later. Because if the owner is not cooperating and a human is bit or worst, it would be the cops who did not protect the human from an animal. It is an animal. Are there bad cops, yes. But with firsthand knowledge, I trust it was not the cops fault in this case. Those dogs are trained to be aggressive. Are all pitbulls TRAINED to be aggressive, no, is Gary's, YES. Anyway, who owns 6 pitbulls??? Take a guess Mathias!


You can't reason with him. Don't even try. Ridiculous.

Personally, I think that anyone who has 6 unleashed pitbulls in Jersey City is up to no good. I have my doubts that the owner is a fine upstanding citizen who we should all look up to.

So the guy has 6 dogs who are acting aggressive and the police are supposed to call animal control and wait for them to show up and do something? So what would have happened if someone walked down the street to go to work and got mauled? Then everyone would have blamed the police for sitting on their asses and being lazy and not taking care of the situation. You can never win with the people on JCList I guess.

I am fine with the police doing what they did. Whether they were pit bulls or just large mean aggressive dogs, they obviously were running around, unleashed and were behaving in such a way that the police felt they had to intervene. I assume someone called it in because they felt it was a dangerous situation. Even if it didn't go down that way, no one should have 6 large aggressive dogs running around unleashed in this city.

At what point did animal rights become more important than public safety?

No one said you shouldn't be angry and no one said you shouldn't try to get your refund back. My post was in response to the person who posted his address, telling everyone that she intended to harass the guy at his home and encouraging the others to do the same. Sorry, but I think that is completely f*cked up. What, you think having angry mobs of people beating down this guy's door is a solution?

The business hasn't even been closed for a week yet. There are other ways to try to get your money back. Personally, I'd try to be as calm as possible to try to get answers before getting angry and screaming and yelling. No one is going to help you if you act like an @sshole and pound on his door to tell him off. On the contrary, you'll probably just get arrested yourself and get a restraining order. Wow, that's a solution, don't you think?

ant731, you are the only one still missing the point.

The point is, you have gone beyond your anger and frustration by previously posting someone's home address and proudly posting that you will be going there this weekend to give your piece of mind and in return, encouraging others to do the same.

He might have unintentionally taken your and others money by trying to keep a failing business. But the consensus seem to be he provided a nice place that a lot of parents will miss. You in return, fail to see in your frustration over loosing your money went beyond and was vindictive.

I am just glad the webmaster removed your previous post with his address.


Ita. And IMO, if you have 400 in cash to spend on "gymnastics classes" for your two year old son, you can't really be hurting for money. Yes, 400 is a lot of money but your life is not going to suck bc you lost it. Id be very upset if it went down the way she said it did, but not enough for me to post joes address and go over to his home to harass him and his family.

Also remember that this guy lost his livelihood! He has children in the community and I am sure he feels awful and embarrassed. Try calling little gym headquarters before you march over to this guys house to yell at him.

Next time, pay by credit card. You would hav avoided this whole mess if you just did that in the first place.

I can understand being upset but honestly, why would you ever pay cash for something like this? Always use your credit card, you have no protection if you pay in cash.

By the way, if you harass this guy at his home, he has every right to call the police on you. Is that a better behavior to do in front of your 2 year old son?

I don't care if they drink to passing out, party till the wee hours of the night, sleep with a million people, portray the beating of women (all of which they have done on the show).

It's just as a resident, I am concerned about

1) property value
2) neighborhood image which attracts future business, development, and families.

Bringing the jersey shore to jc will negatively affect both.

Again, just ask yourself - Think of a pristine beach in NJ with respectful people and where you would want to take your kids or future kids to. I can guarantee you that if we run this poll among jersey residents, seaside heights would be dead last. Thanks in part to the Jersey Shore.


Did you grow up in NJ? Because again, Seaside Heights ALWAYS had a bad reputation. The only people that went there were the "Jersey Shore" type. It was like this in the 80s, when I was a kid. We always called it Sleazeside in high school and the kids always went there to party and hook up.

Did the various Real World shows ruin the reputation of those cities? I just don't think it's going to be as horrible as you people think. It seems like a lot of you are clutching your pearls over the horror, the horror...

There is a reason the Hoboken mayor denied them permits. It's because she knew the short term gain - boost in income in whatever restaurants they visit - will not outweigh the long term negative aspect of this...

Just think to yourself - When you think of a clean family beach to go to, how many beaches pop into your mind before Seaside Heights? Yeah..I thought so. Use your brains for a second...



Sleazeside Heights never had a good reputation. It always was kind of gross and guido, way before Jersey Shore happened.

I don't watch the show. Personally, I think it's awful and I hate the "Jersey" connection. However, I don't really think it's that horrible they are filming here. JC is a pretty big city and downtown is pretty big too so I'm sure the city can make room for filming.

I can see why Hoboken said no, they are a tiny town with barely any parking and very residential. They already have a ton of people at the bars etc, this would make things even more crazy. JC just doesn't have the nightlife that Hoboken has, so I can't imagine it would be any where as bad as it would be if they filmed in in Hoboken.

Everyone outside of the JC/Hoboken area thinks that JC is a crime riddled ghetto. So maybe the new show will show that you wont get shot by a gang member if you hang out in downtown.

Both are against the lawwwwwww, bro.


Honestly, I've only gotten tickets for expired metered parking probably no more than 3 times in my lifetime. And I pay them as soon as I get them without complaining because I know that I screwed up. And all three times were accidental, I thought I was back within the time period allotted and I was mistaken. Nobody mistakenly parks in a red zone. You do that on purpose.

This is a NEW statute. It is not yet printed on the ticket form itself. The amount of the fine has not been made public. Soooo, they are sending me a court appearance document within 2 weeks and hopefully when I go to court the beauracracy will have ended.

I guess you are assuming that I violate the law and I like to pay fines???? Remember your comments when in future you are overtime at a meter or make some other parking/traffic mistake. Your comments are juvenile.



Getting a ticket bc your meter expires is a completely different issue than KNOWINGLY parking in a red or yellow zone. I think people who blatantly ignore parking rules and park where they are hindering the sight vision of other cars and pedestrians are pretty juvenile and selfish imo. If you can't find a legal parking spot near your home or wherever you are heading, keep looking until you do.

And btw, parking in a red zone IS violating the law. That's why you got the ticket.

There probably have been too many tickets and complaints and also repeat offenders so perhaps this is their way of teaching you guys a lesson. Who knows? Hopefully you will get your answer when you go to court.
