Can anyone recommend a good local dermatologist (JC/Hoboken)?

Thank you!

Re: Dance Lessons or Dance Classes??

There are several different types of salsa, and if you interested in dancing in the clubs, you would probably learn a style called "on 2", but if you are looking to just dance at a wedding or something, you could learn "ballroom". Learning ballrom salsa will not do you much good if you want to go out dancing in the clubs of ny. If you call around, you can ask what style they teach, any school will know what you mean (and if they don't - hang up!)!

Assuming (a) you want to dance in clubs and thus dance "on 2", and (b) you don't want to go to Manhattan to learn to dance (which is actually what I would recommend, as I am a semi-pro dancer), there are a few in the local area.

1. Caribbean Soul. Lead dancers are Ismael Otero and Shanai Talmor who are relatively big names in the salsa community. website: http://www.ismaelotero.com/

2. Salsa Fever on2. Lead dancer is Mario B. It takes a certain personality to get on with the teacher, but if you do, he can show you the moves. website: http://salsafeveron2.com/Home.html

There are many many more if you are willing to go a bit further, but those are the two closest and most renown salsa schools who will teach ny "NY STYLE ON 2". Kennedy dancers does NOT teach this style (at least last time I checked) - but this does not mean they aren't a great academy! If you want to learn ballroom, sorry I can't be much help!!!!!!

Here is a fairly comprehensive list:

Good luck!

Seriously or a joke? Because that is pretty much a prime example of external preservation!

Aside from maybe those who live in Morris Canal, pretty much everyone (and everything - signs, maps) in today's era would agree, downtown starts/ends at the turnpike.

There is a good one in Hoboken across from the Police Station (i think that's Hudson st??). I believe it's called Maria's. It's an old-school place, hard to know how she keeps it organized, but she does good work. I had a friend who took her wedding gown there, and I took a bridesmaid's dress there, with no complaints. Good prices.

if you are actually looking for parking, try craigslist...people rent out their spots. I know several people who have gotten spaces that way.Quote:

There are definitely DT residents who over-use their cars, but I think a lot of DT traffic is from those who live in other parts of the city and/or those from another town altogehter (ie: going to holland tunnel). I could be wrong???Quote:

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??

Development on 1st & 2nd St.
Home away from home
Home away from home


The other day I was walking home and saw a woman hanging flyers on light poles opposing proposed development on 1st and 2nd Streets. I think it's tacky to do that (simply because most people don't take down the signs after the event has passed) but I didn't say anything. Well, yesterday this same woman and/or group put flyers on everyone's windshield in the area. This is over the line, I think. Everyone just tosses them into the street and it litters are neighborhood. If something is that important to get the word out, I think you should use the mail service or go personally door-to-door.

Nevertheless, even before this flyer-ing started, I was aware of the project and I think it's great! An old church is being preserved and turned into condos! Parking can't be included because the church already exists as-is, and on the other lot where a small (yes SMALL) townhouse is being built, the lot is too narrow for parking. Additionally no other brownstones, row houses, or town houses have garage doors and it would look awful to have one. THe point of living downtown is that you don't need a car!!!

Many thanks go out to the random guy who left the PATH around 8pm last night (July 15) and picked up other people's trash littering the Grove Street plaza, and put it in the garbage bin!!!

Oh I\'ve got 5 in a row!
Mack Cali building (has a new name, but not sure what it is) on Columbus Drive (across from Grove St. Path, with the beautiful jersey barriers around it)
moving east, the next four buildings between Montgomery and Columbus are all atrocities. All four are slab high rise apartment buildings surrounded by awful parking lots. The whole three-block stretch makes me cringe!

Grilling rules in Liberty State Park

Does anyone know what the rules/regs are for grilling in LSP? I'm guessing it's strictly limited to the picnicing area on the south end of the park, but if anyone knows differently please share.... I have a portable grill that I'd like to use.

Re: Greenville and West Side: Planning aims to save large Victorian homes - by increasing min. lot s

Actually, this is right. I have a map copied from 30 Montgomery, and one portion of this zone falls exactly in the boundaries you outline. Other blocks in the area (Kensington, Jewett, Fairview) are also part of the proposed zone, but the "mass" of the zone is where JJ says.

in greenville, the zone is bounded by Danforth and Lembeck between Garfield and Ocean.

Just to clarify what was incorrectly posted earlier, Fairview is WELL within the R1-A zone. Maps are public record so you can check it out for yourself. Your councilperson should have a copy. Or, you can go to Planning at 30 Montgomery and ask to see a map there. They can't tell you no.

Everyone should continue to call their council person and implore that they bring this item back onto the agenda for the next council meeting. Any claim that fears of so-called "spot zoning" are false - also public record is a legal opinion that says it is not spot zoning. These council people were elected to represent their areas and protect the city - they are not doing either. Right now the major roadblock is Sottolano because he opposes this NOT ONLY in his district, but citywide. He is attempting to influence everyone.

Please, continue to tell your councilpeople how you feel - this item is very important to the future of our city so no more ugly houses go up in what should be a beautiful neighborhood.
