Re: Journal Square: Stricter cab rules in motion

Just can't stay away


I've only taken a cab once from JSQ and I thought it was strange that I had to share with someone.

Also, the first go who got dropped off was charged the full fare on the meter, then, when I got dropped off I had to pay the full fair as well. The cab driver did not stop the meter after the first drop so essentially he got paid double for the ride. Totally shady and probably illegal.

Lynne, why would it be a rough go? Downtown JC used to be known as tough area., now look at it for God sakes. You got people getting all bent outta shape over turds in a park and how tough life is without a whole foods. Im not saying that area of the Bronx is gonna get all fancy anytime soon (hopefully never) but look at all the people moving into rough areas of Brooklyn. I think that whole fear of NYC attitude is being shed pretty quickly by most. And that is contributing to NYC's rapid gentrification (ugggh)


I agree with this, but that area of the Bronx is pretty tough. We looked over there before we bought in JC so I'm just sayin, this guy looks like he might have a tough time there. Not that it isn't a wise investment.

He doesn't look like an American to me. Perhaps a campaign like this by the PATH would yield some results. (They should leave out all those Japanese curse words though). I remember they put signs at WTC escalators years ago telling people to ride on the right. That was successful in changing behavior. Many people are not intentionally inconsiderate. They are just too self-involved to know better.


I don't know, if I bang into someone or hit into someone or rub against someone I am aware of it. Some of the backpackers never even flinch when they hit you with their backpack. They don't give a sh*t obviously.

I disagree. The article is news worthy because there obviously are people out there who do not know this is illegal. Maybe it will save someone from having this happen to them.

Regarding Ian's comment about Ipods and street crossing. I have seen MANY people in NYC almost get hit by cars because they are wearing ipods and not paying attention. I would be pretty pissed off/upset/freaked out if I was driving and I hit someone who was completely unaware of their own surroundings.

On another note, I must admit that I cannot stand dealing with people wearing ipods and not being aware of someone saying pardon me, excuse me, etc etc.

My friends really liked this place and have been back twice since their first time, so we decided to try it on Sunday afternoon. The mojito was really good and so was the guacamole w/plantain chips. I got a quesadilla with shrimp which was really greasy, like they fried it in butter or something. My husband got mofungo (sp?) with pork which in my opinion did not look appetizing, but he likes that kind of stuff. Anyway, I would say this place is just OK, and the service was a bit slow, but we didn't experience anything rude from the waitstaff at all. I'll probably skip going back here unless our friends really want to go.

That link is great and all, but it doesn't answer the question. This link gives demographics of the area, but how up to date are they?? Also, they do not give the demographic of the people who are moving into the area, only the ones who have lived there for some time.

The question was who is "Moving into" the area, not who lives there.

I couldn't find a thread on this place, though I'm pretty sure I saw one somewhere ?? Anyway, I have read pretty bad reviews on this place and my friends are planning on having lunch there tomorrow. Has it gotten better? Is it worth a trip?

I feel like your guess is correct-- The cars I see parked on the streets of my neighborhood when I get home around 7 PM night are still there when I leave for work around 9 AM. I know a bunch of my neighbors take the PATH into Newark or the city and just use their cars to haul groceries and for weekend trips.


I agree. As easy as it may be to get around/to work from downtown, it's no easy task gowing grocery shopping etc without your own wheels.

It seems like so many on this site are always saying this, so why is it that parking/traffic is such a problem in DT? Obiously this train of thought isn't as popular as some may hope??

It is true though that most all fashion trends originate from the street, not necessarily drug dealers and criminals but young kids who are into music, indy culture, etc. I don't know how you can argue that kids are NOT emulating criminals (drug dealers, gang members). Come on, that's obvious. To say all trends start that way, no, but some?? Absolutely.

I think "safe" refers to not getting mugged, raped, jumped, shot., etc. Nothing to do with race.

Wow, that's what I thought I had read, that it was really nice, but I guess the area we saw with all the DO NOT ENTER signs that was all over grown is not the entrance? Where can you gain access to the reservoir? Is there any place that I can get info, like a website?

Can anyone fill me in on Pershing Field? What's the access to the reservoir like? It seemes like it is all fenced in and overgrown. I thought I had read something about being able to fish/kayak, etc in there. Any info would be great!

So anyway.....to be helpful, there is a Stop and Shop on Central avenue, albeit not the best assortment/people/staff. Personally, I use the ShopRite in Hoboken.

I feel for you. I used to live in Nutley NJ, very close to Secaucus. I would take the train from Penn to Secaucus and have to wait 40 minutes sometimes for the train to Nutley, which would take about 8 minutes to get to my stop. NJ transit is good, but def leaves many things to be desired. There is a bar in Secaucus if you ever get really bored

I lived in this town my whole life and remember when it was burning down in the 1970s. It's a shame that permits are being issued to built these cookie-cutter monstrosities.

If you live in one now, I mean no disrespect. The architects, investors, and the city are to blame.


Just curious, what would you approve of/like better? Some of the houses in Greenville/Heights etc that are going up are by far a vast improvement from what was there. Everyone can't build/live in historic brownstones.
