I wonder why the owner is selling? Must be a personal reason - that place is packed every night.

Re: Lots of Police/Detectives in front of Fussy Friends Tonight

Each spring brings a new batch of crazy 'homeless' people to Newark & Grove. They lurk outside small businesses all day and all night. A few weeks ago I watched three of them engage in a heated debate for about 10 minutes ( huge screaming match) which was quite colorful. The woman that sits in the supermarket cart that is wheeled around town and is often beat up with black eyes is making her return appearance for a second season. I often wonder if our government or 'community leaders' are aware of these folks?

Yellow tape in front of the door with several police officers & detectives in front of Fussy Friends a half hour ago. Many police cars and unmarked cars parked on Newark Avenue. I hope no one was hurt.

Two Beautiful Trees Gone on Erie Street!
#67

Home away from home


Why? Why were the two beautiful trees on Erie Street between 9th and 10th street cut down? I just walked by last night and they were blooming again in the lovely spring! We rented in The Academy for 8 years before buying around the corner 6 years ago and lived in Unit 105 facing the street. One of the trees looked great just outside our huge window. I loved that tree. Why? Why?? They were pruned frequently. They didn't seem to cause any trouble! Why?? That block of Erie looks awful now! Why????

Ooooo this is gonna be an entertaining and fun one to keep reading! I cannot resist - I should, but I just cannot! So Prof. Malone works here in JC but goes home to Maplewood. So? Okay. I know a few developers that have done a lot of good for JC and also go home at night to towns in Essex county and beyond. So what does any of this mean really? Does it even mean anything?

I've lived here in JC for 13 years and this is the first time I've seen this parade. I loved it! So many people dancing with such colorful costumes and I enjoyed the music. Well done! I hope to catch it next year too - I suppose it is always around the same time of year? This was really an unexpected treat!

This is such a piss poor topic. BTW I was rushing through the park yesterday at around 10am and there were a bunch (perhaps 10?) young children picking the flowers right near the water fountain as their caretakers sat on the benches laughing. A few of the kids were proudly marching over to the adults with their huge bouquets. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! One adult (parent?) stood up and moved toward a child in an effort to stop him - I gently said 'you know I don't think the flowers are really for picking' as I rushed by.

That was for an election in the DR?? I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry. I must be missing something from this story - why on Earth would this occur here? I watched it on Grove Street Sunday. The noise level of the music was amazing. Young men were holding these huge boom boxes out on the roof of many of the cars - and they were zipping along pretty fast and came to very quick stops at the red lights. I thought that a few of them would go flying off and out onto the pavement since they were basically 'sitting' and hanging out of the windows. It was really really nuts - you had to see it to believe it! I was confused because I was not familiar with the name either - there was a photo of a man and woman running for office. I did notice a few police officers wave to them from the sidewalk so I guess it was okay(?)

We just recently discovered Park & Sixth. I've had dinner there and we also pick up lunch at work at least once a week. All I can say is fantastic. The food is very very good. We are hooked on the meatball and chicken parm sandwich - which is a bit of a problem for us that watch our cholesterol. Honestly, the best I've ever tasted. I do not know who the 'other' woman is that the last person spoke of, but I must say that we are very impressed with the 'young' women that serve there. They are consistently knowledgeable and very courteous!

?I did not move to New York City to live in Hoboken or Jersey City,? Mr. Rosati declared."

C'mon guys, we were all young & immature at one point. He's 25, probably grew up in some mid-western boring hell hole where a night out on the town consisted of a stop at the Walmart and now he's in fabulous N.Y.C.! Does he sound very silly & pretentious? Of course he does! Does he ruffle this native NYC/NJ boy's feathers? Nah. If he and his buddies can pay $5400 per month good for them. He's living his 'dream' right now, working hard, out on Saturday nights wearing his tight designer jeans and his best Banana Republican untucked dress shirt picking up the ladies. Give the youngin' a break! He has arrived - he be livin' in da big city. Let him have his excitement and try not to be too harsh. He has no idea how good it is here in the JC.

The Cape May Lobster House here in Jersey City! Now ain't that a wonderful thought!! It would be fantastic. I would agree with the many here that have suggested a 24 hour quality well priced diner near Grove St. The small plates and good drink restaurants here are just fine ( I love Park & Sixth - such quality ingredients and great tasting things there!) but some nights you just don't wish to spend too much for a quick dinner.

Muller Toyota, Route 31, Clinton NJ. Worth the hour drive. Bought my first Corolla there in 1988 from a friend's recommendation. 300,000 carefree miles later I bought a 2002 Corolla from them which is still going strong. They let me charge $3000 on my credit card and drive away with my promise to send them a check for the balance in a few days. The whole transaction took about an hour - amazing. Call me nuts ( go ahead), but these guys are honest and professional beyond belief. I went in with the Consumer Reports invoice price for my make and model and they went $400 over for their profit. They continue to win awards for customer service year after year. I look forward to buying my 3rd car from them in a few years!

Oh Downright, the men won't get up for your wife and unborn baby? Does this really surprise you in this day and age? Let me say right off the bat that I would, but I'm certainly not surprised. I've seen things like this many times on my commute. Once a woman with crutches had to yell at the young self-absorbed I-pod wearing cell phone eyeballed glued idiot seated in the handicapped seat to move. In 2012 you are shocked and surprised? With a 50% divorce rate? And what about the women's liberation movement? They have been liberated - are they not all happy with the result?

Re: Bumper Bully
#82
Home away from home
Home away from home


My first car was a 1979 Chevy Monte Carlo. In those days cars had real bumpers. Then I bought my first Toyota in 1988. The car still had real bumpers on it. My next Toyota in 2002 had what every car has now - the painted bumper. I imagine car makers changed them because it is cheaper. Got many small dings and chips on it. In 2007 I moved and now have a spot in my parking garage. But the thing is - there is no getting around getting these dings if one parks on a street anyplace. I've seen cars on the streets with these bumper thingees hanging from the back - I suppose they do the job but boy do they look silly. I think it would be much better if cars had real bumpers again on them. New ways of doing things are not always better in our wonderful modern world. I wonder how much these new bumper guards cost too - just another expense.

Dtjc, we too were very surprised with this. We love our building and watched it as it was built. We walked the huge thick concrete floors that seperate our units many times. The problem lies in the sharing of the vent system. We are 4 units in a row and we somehow share the same vents ( they are all in a row to the roof). I'm not an engineer or anything so I didn't think to check on this when our beautiful new home was being built. The developer is well known here in JC for such a quality product and we couldn't be happier except with this now. Glad to hear that you are an ex-smoker. I've seen the devastating effects of smoking on many of my 'older' relatives ( Mom & Aunt currently suffer from emphysema - an Uncle who passed away after a 3 year long slow death after having a portion of his jaw removed, etc). I'm happy to hear that you took a more intelligent path and had the strength to get away from a life filled with disgusting filth swirling around you & your loved ones - good for you!

Sorry to read that you have to move. People that still smoke are insane to me with all of the medical evidence against it but what can you do. Most smokers I know take a very strong stance with it. You really cannot make them stop - it is 'their right'. I'm still amazed each day of the number of people I pass on the streets sucking on their cancer sticks. Young and old. Great looking and not so great looking. The folks above us have recently sublet their unit and as of July 1st we too have been treated with second hand smoke. We had our vent in our main bathroom shut off and closed but still some of the horrid stench seeps through. We air out the house as much as possible but are dreading the winter. I've already enjoyed one painful sinus infection. We met and spoke with the three chain smokers that live above us - they claimed that they are trying to quit and will smoke outside but they still smoke inside in spite of what they told us. What can you do. They seem like really nice folks except that they are addicted to the good ole' cancer stick. They choose to live in a smoke-filled world where everything they own is coated in carcinogens. It is shame that we must suffer a little too. And, no, another owner already tried with our board to make our building smoke-free. Unless it is a rule when the building is built you cannot enforce something like this after the fact.

Yes I was surprised to see this store open again last night. I was amazed at the selection of items available and that it will be open 24 hours! It really is a complete grocery store. I certainly hope that it does well - it looks like they put a lot of effort into the remodel ( I noticed that it is larger - they also absorbed the nail place that was on the side) so this market is larger than the first. I wish them the best of luck even though A&P and ShopRite are within walking distance.

Nope - it is actually very easy for me to say. And it's not junk - they are called groceries. Not gonna get into a long discussion with yer here regarding personal work ethic. Your comments have me questioning your real thoughts on the subject. You may now have 'the last word' if you wish on this.

Re: C-Town Being Sold

Exactly. TJ's does pay more and does more training - thus they get much more of my business. But I think if we begin to get into issues of work ethics and such here we risk going waaay off topic regarding service in relation to the C-Town! I'll will just say that all people should try to do well in whatever job they have. Just because Shop Rite's hourly rate is probably below TJ's rate ( and certainly below Wegmans!) that is not cause for an employee to be terrible at his/her job.
