Re: New rules to address noise complaints for restaurants and nightclubs

Home away from home
Home away from home


whatever became of this? this is a really important issue b/c i think its EXTREMELY unrealistic to limit clubs to these ridiculous standards.

everyone's spewing "art, art, art" well, music is art as well. And it seems like anyone that tries to bring original music to this town is facing an uphill battle if this is passed.

I was at automata chino this weekend and this was brought up. Apparently a bunch of business owners are trying to fight this. I was shocked to hear fullop is for it.

I'd really like to see the pros and cons for this. And i don't want to hear, neighbors deserve peace and quiet. This is a city, there will be bars/ clubs, they should have some rights as well.

It's taken so long to get places that local bands can play, and when you get something good going it seems like its only a matter of time before they get shut down.

i left the bar around 2 and there were no stabbings/fights, just a bunch of people having a good time.

impressions are not fact, just stating mine.

i hope the guy sticks around, this city could use more like him.

ps. i'm in the heights, and i'm hoping we have our own fulop in the works- will know more after the next debate.

i was very impressed w/ him at the debate in the heights last week, but someone saying, "if everyone in downtown votes for him" kind of highlighted my one thing about him...there's more to JC than downtown, and i felt that he will do well there, but not so much in the other areas.

I think he has some great ideas and i truly did trust what he said, which is pretty impressive when i'm talking about a candidate. i just hope he's in it for the long haul, b/c i honestly don't think he'll be able to take down the machine this time, but maybe next time....

it seemed to me that those in attendance went heavily to levin/manzo, or perhaps it was only the manzanites that were willing to brave the rath of the moderator w/ the out of turn clapping.

levin impressed me, but i think he got the short end of the stick sitting in front of manzo. anything he said, manzo said w/ a bit more flare. it was obvious who the career politicians were, not necessarily a good thing. although if webb doesn't win, he has a career in voice over work.

Re: Stuck in Denial "War Zone"
#95
Home away from home
Home away from home


i was at the debates as well last night, and my main problem w/ healy was his flat out refusal to admit there is a problem. that right there went a long way in my mind on how i think of him: stubborn.

this city will always have problems, and like many i do not blame the mayor for these. i blame the parents, economy, society, and lazy ass sh*theads who are causing the problems.

However denying the problem is not the way to fix anything. The job of the mayor is to be a leader and acknowledge shortfalls and have plans put in place to stop them. I found it interesting that all 4 candidates preached cops on foot, not healy. A lot of interesting things came to light last night.

don't waste your time listening to anyone on this board about "their" candidate. Go check out the candidates in the debates for yourself.

Last night in the heights was pretty eye opening for me. I went in pretty clueless to the other candidates and came out w/ a clear view of my front runner. Since i'm not sure what matters to you, i won't bother "shilling" for my pick, you should make your own choice.

there are plenty of oppportunities out there to hear the candidates in their own words, i urge EVERYONE on this board to do so, b/c it is clear many people on this board have their own agenda, and it does not include helping you pick the best candidate for you.

Also, don't forget your council people in this election. Its not just the mayor who can get things done or not, there is some new blood out there. Heights residents go to the next council debate on April 16th. I think some of this new blood might even be sick enough of this broken system to actually do something about. They deserve your ear and hopefully your vote.

Rascals (1st and marin) sits unoccupied (i think) and could be such a great venue for shows. Close to the path, nice back room w/ a stage. Such a waste it just sits there. Or is it still a comedy club w/ the random drug bust/shooting?

Of course if that ever did happen and we got a decent rock club it would last for about 6 months until people complained and it got demolished for a parking lot for luxury condos.

NJ state taxes when you work in NY
Home away from home
Home away from home


I know we talked about this last year, but i can't find it when i search for taxes.

Does anyone know the form you're supposed to do when you work in NY/ live in NJ? i did it last year b/c my company pays nyc taxes and while turbo tax loves to tell me i owe a crap load, i end up doing a form that takes the nyc taxes and credits them to nj.

next time i'll leave myself a note so i don't have to freak out every year figuring this out over and over again!

thanks for any help..

Restaurant (i use that term loosely)

if you find yourself near Congress and New York ave in the heights, stop at the taco stand in front of Lee's Liquors. He now has a full shed and will be there all winter. Honestly, the BEST tacos i've ever had. I don't get the love w/ Taqueria, but that may be b/c i hate corn tortillas and they seem to use a lot of that, but anyway, great friendly guy and AMAZING huge ass tacos for $3 a pop. One fills you up.

Re: NJT Busses - Nearly (a) Joke (on) Transit?
Home away from home
Home away from home


chocolate cake, not sure what time you're comuting, but anytime after 6 the 126 line is around the building! i know, b/c i take it every night. I've complained for more buses going down clinton/willow, and the woman was nice and said, we get a lot of calls for that, but they only increase buses quarterly. so who knows.
it really just depends on the time you commute. if you're lucky and can go in late, or leave early the 126 works, but if you're not east in the heights, yeah, you're screwed.
Perhaps i'll check out this meeting. in this 5 degree temp it would be nice to not have to walk so far in the cold!

Home away from home


the service is a joke. where in the heights do you live? i don't even bother w/ jc buses, instead i walk right past the light rail into hoboken (9th street elevator) i walk up to clinton & 9th and get that bus. its pretty reliable and fast since you sneak in the tunnel the back way.

depending on where you live, that could be an option. if i don't do that i just take the light rail to the hoboken path. it would be great to have a bus that goes down the 14th street aqueduct right into the tunnel. perhaps there is? well, i mean, it would be great to have a RELIABLE bus that goes down the 14th street aqueduct, i doubt there is.

that was a friend of mine. thats like the 3rd mugging there in a few months, all in the evening. clearly they're taking advantage of the walkers and dark corners, hello, more lights, more cops riding up this block would clearly help. how many more people in a month need to get mugged.

Re: NJ transit fare system is unfair (& how to get to newark EWR)

i looked at all the ways to get to newark, and ended up w/ a bus from the port authority. Took no time at all (middle of work day) and was $15 and drops you off at your terminal. You can buy a ticket on line or even easier, on the bus. Won't go any other way again from the city.

Re: Liberty Science Center begs Jersey City for $2.5M - Fulop: 'Bailout' by city would set bad precedent
Home away from home
Home away from home


i'm going to have to agree with those putting the blame on those running it. I haven't been, but i do have a date w/ our nephews in the near future (if its still open!). Just seems those in charge run things into the ground and then come to the tax payers to bail them out.

Of course i'm lumping these guys in w/ the rest of what seems to be all of corporate america (i'm exagerating i know, but damn its one after the next). Any loans given to companies (for profit or non profit) should not only have a deadline to pay it back, but also a plan in the works on how they will improve the business. Just refilling the piggy bank is not going to cure what ails them, and they'll be in the same boat in a few years.

Glad you asked. Obvioiusly, the answer depends on your point of view. That's why I didn't answer it for you. I assume and hope that Obama supporters would think that good things are coming. Why should it matter to you what the rest of us think? My predicitions about the future are no better than yours. Now it's time for your government and your policies. Go forward into the future with the confidence I hope you have.

And to Bright Moment, you have no grace in victory. I disagree with Obama, but I won't stoop to the name calling and vindictiveness of many of you. This certainly has not been a civil conversation.

this board exemplifies whats wrong with this country. can for one second you drop all your self righteous BS and just try and move forward REGARDLESS of who you voted for?

That being said, if you can honestly tell me that his being elected did not, on one level, move you, than you're someone i care not to know. Actually i already know who you are on this board, so please spare me from your doomsday responses, they're as old as (insert McCain joke).

Re: What's worse for JC, Luxury Condos or Hipsters?
Home away from home
Home away from home


this is an easy answer for all you complainers: the hipsters are better. What's worse, a kid in a scarf with tight jeans or watching 2 path trains leave completely packed?

well, I think by defination hipsters are slackers. They probably go into work later (if they work at all) than "the suits". The time they spend perfecting their ironic wardrobe makes them continuously late, therefore they're not participants in the morning rush hour.

However, the "evil yuppie suits" that will no doubt inhabit the high rise condos are fueled by chai soy lattes which make them function at warp speed, facilitating them getting to the path train smack dab in the middle of rush hour.

So ask yourself this, is a scarf and non prescription glasses worse than having your face in a dudes armpit from Grove Street to 14th?
