good luck. If it were free and I only had to pay the taxes, I wouldn't move out there.

I would say a century ride (100 miles) is about equivalent to a marathon in terms of effort, and training.


not really...a relatively fit weekend warrior cyclist can go out and do a century without any special training.

The only way a century is comparable to the marathon is in the ceremonial sense.

A century seems more like a half marathon. Of course the amount of climbing would have to be taken into consideration.

Slowly but surely, the interlopers are getting their wish of all the dollar/discount stores in the neighborhood closing.

For a mere fraction of the price these fun fantastic scooters will at the very minimum will half your travel time vs walking! From personal experience let me tell you that these extremely light weight/portable scooters are undoubtedly the best way to get around town. Get to and from the PATH station in no time and then easily fold up the scooter for the train ride to/from work. Great for kids over 8 too these stylish scooters have a solid low weight aluminum frame (10 lbs) telescoping handle bars, an easy folding mechanism, fast over sized 210 mm high speed wheels and an over sized foot break. If interested 'd be happy to give you a test ride so you can see for yourself how simple & fun they are to ride so feel free to contact me via post in the classified ad section below the forum posts for additional information!

Admittedly this is trivial but...

Since P&K is now gonna have lines like a Manhattan Trader Joes, people should know that there is one line for both registers and it runs along the wall. The sons are too nice to tell people standing at the second register that they're in the wrong spot, so that person ultimately cuts the line.

Scam/con artist in the Shoprite parking lot this afternoon
Home away from home
Home away from home


Gypsy woman. Well dressed with big sunglasses and her two kids, son about 8 years old walking with her and daughter about 3 or 4 in the shopping cart.

Walked up to me with what looked like a credit card with a receipt wrapped around it inner hand as I was walking to my car and used the typical, "I'm so sorry, could you help me? My kids and I..." I didn't even let her finish. Just told her no, not today and walked away. Looked back after walking a few feet and she had already moved on to her next mark. I thought of yelling out to the dude she was working but he was already pulling out his wallet, so I said fuck it and packed my car. Before I was done loading she was already working two other guys.

So including me, she hit up 4 people in less than five minutes.

Here was the response:

I know Erie stinks (though it is better than it was I'd argue based on feedback I've gotten) the real solution there is to divert cut through traffic away from downtown (which is a project the state promised in mid 1980s). 30% of cars are using our streets as short cut to Holland tunnel.




which will only get worse once the pedestrian bridge is expanded to include vehicular traffic from LSP.

My bike is definitely "no tears", probably why no one even bothers to look and see that it's a cylinder. My son's bike would have been like $800 new, and he'd be very sad to see it go.


Once you decide on a lock, make sure your son knows how to use it.

I've seen so many bikes with expensive locks incorrectly secured.

Like, not even close. There is someone at my office that has a Evo mini-9 and uses it to fasten the rack to the front tire and one side of the fork...AND the bike has quick release tires. One day I'm going to find just the tire locked to the rack.

serious question

at what point does an unlocked bike at a bike rack become abandoned? I've seen a bike in a rack for a week now that has two flats, no seat and isn't locked. Aside from that, it's in okay condition and with a little love could be a pretty good beater bike.

What I don't understand is why the ferry service is so expensive. A ferry can be bought for the cost of one or 2 subway cars ($1.28 million each, cost of ferries) , and you don't need track, electric supply or signaling, just 2 docks. Ferry used to be the ONLY way to cross the Hudson, and I doubt it cost the equivalent of buying lunch a century ago. I can't find any data on historic ferry fares. But it is worth noting how NYC provides free ferry service to Staten I in order to promote it's economy. But the PA and the NJ governors could care less about the economy of Hudson County.

Interesting page History of Hudson Ferries


this is a great point.
why not fix up and open the newport ferry terminal and increase service?

Thanks Grove. I read through that thread. Nothing in there relative to this incident.

BustJC, I'll have to go back and check the street. Supposedly there isn't any driveway or red paint and it was mid block, so corner wasn't the issue.

non resident parking on weekends - rule change?
Home away from home
Home away from home


Did I miss something? Was there a rule change about parking on weekends? A friend's car was towed on Sunday which was otherwise parked legally. This was not a metered spot.
No explanation on ticket other than "unlawfully parked"

If there was no rule change, what are the chances of fighting this? $54 ticket plus $115 for the pound.

Just a warning that I received a street sweeping ticket this morning on Warren st (at Columbus). It used to be no parking from 8am-10am. It was randomly changed to 6am-8am. It must have been changed in the last week or so. It is frustrating as I don't look at a street sign every time I park as I assume the time wouldn't change at random and with no warning/letter from JCParking or the city. Not sure what other streets have been changed, but I would check your signs next time you leave your car parked overnight on the street.


Not at all surprised. The city needs to be find new forms of revenue to be able to meet the new $15 minimum hourly wage without raising taxes.


It must be true if you keep saying it.
