A Guide to Loving Jersey City


From Claire Schneider

Ever wondered what?s on the OTHER side of the Hudson River? Don?t let visions of an episode of ?Jersey Shore? scare you. There really is more to this state than tanning oil, muscles and beer, especially when it comes to downtown Jersey City. It won?t take you as long as you might think to get there: Downtown Jersey City?s plethora of restaurants are just a 10 minute ride from Lower

Jersey City, NJ 07305
(201) 200-1000
www.lsc.org

The Liberty Science Center is an expansive science museum with the largest IMAX dome theater in the United States. It also offers a cafe with surprisingly tasty food. Make a day of it by exploring the varied and extensive exhibits ? including the largest exhibition of skyscrapers in the world with artifacts from the World Trade Center, an I-Beam walk two stories above the exhibition floor and an earthquake shake room ? before beating the summer heat in the air-conditioned theater?s comfy seats before a documentary shot entirely in 3D. Adult ticket $15.75; children?s $11.50. The IMAX theater is $9 for adults and $7 for children.

Teeming with history and offering spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, Liberty State Park is located only 2,000 feet from the Statue of Liberty and offers boat tours to see Lady Liberty herself. Most of the 1,122 acre park is designated as open space with 300 acres developed for public recreation. Ornithology enthusiasts should pack their binoculars as numerous species of birds live here. Bike enthusiasts will love the labyrinth bike paths. At the north end of the park is the restored railway station which houses festivals, concerts and other cultural happenings. Immigrants once processed at Ellis Island purchased tickets at this railroad station, boarding trains en route to their new lives.

www.jerseycitymuseum.org

The Jersey City Art Museum exhibits American art dating from the colonial period through the present, placing emphasis on supporting the work of contemporary artists. Works include painting, sculpture, decorative arts, photography, furniture, metals, textiles, maps, industrial objects and ephemera. A walk through this storied building indicates its genesis as part of the Jersey City Free Public Library. The museum offers workshops for adults including life drawing, painting technique and photo art classes.
Hamilton Park

Bordered by 8th and 9th Streets on the north and south, and by Coles and Erie on the east and west

A quiet park surrounded by 19th century brownstone homes, Hamilton Park has recently undergone a renovation that is making it the hub of downtown Jersey City. The 4.5 acre park has two brand-new tennis courts, basketball courts, a modern playground, a dog-run and frequent farmers? markets. The park was named after Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington. Hamilton was shot and killed in a duel with political rival Aaron Burr in nearby

Light Horse Tavern

199 Washington Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302-4527
(201) 946-2028
www.lighthorsetavern.com

The restaurant?s title hearkens back to American Gen. Henry ?Light Horse Harry? Lee, who led his men on raids against the British in the Revolutionary War, triumphing in a surprise attack on 400 British soldiers near the location of today?s Light Horse Tavern. The restaurant is more than deserving of the storied title ?atmosphere and food are grade A and service is welcoming and efficient, unlike the majority of other upscale restaurants in the neighborhood. Simple wooden tables nestled next to large bay windows give the restaurant an air of comfort and class. Menu items such as butter poached lobster gnocchi and BBQ skirt steak are both familiar and delicious. Average entry plate is $25.

Mario and Pepe

289 Grove Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 860-9688
www.marcoandpepe.com

This chic yet low-key ?New American? restaurant in downtown Jersey City offers a foodie-friendly menu with a well-edited wine list. Try a meat and cheese platter loaded with Serrano ham, chorizo and gourmet cheese or a specialty dish such as the grilled lobster scallop burger. Service is slower than is necessary, but the atmosphere is fun and the food is good, when it comes. Entrees range from $14-$25.

Madame Claude Caf?

364 4th Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 876-8800
www.madameclaudecafe.com

Authentic French restaurant with quaint, homey atmosphere, great service and good food. Some things are done better than others here. For example, the roast duck with port wine reduction sauce is outstanding for dinner, as is the flourless chocolate cake for dessert ? but the brunch menu lacks substance and originality. On the brunch/lunch side, about the only items to recommend are the crepes and the spicy lamb sandwich. The outdoor tables, excellent cappuccinos, friendly service and French memorabilia adorning the walls make it worth a visit.

Skinner?s Loft

146 Newark Avenue
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 915-0600
www.skinnersloft.com

A casual place to get a bite to eat with three well-laid out floors, each with its own eclectic architectural elements harkening back to its roots as a historic brownstone home. The food could be described as upscale comfort food: Menu items include fresh berry and mixed green salad, organic French cut chicken breast, barbequed baby back ribs and flat iron steak with garlic-chive fries. Perhaps the most clever facet of this cozy establishment is the upstairs outdoor roof patio, glorious on a warm summer night with a pitcher of beer and a group of friends.
Caf? Basic

231 8th st
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 656-5900

A quintessential Hamilton Park favorite, Basic offers great sandwiches (the chicken sundried tomato pesto is our favorite), coffee and pastries. Large, fresh cookies can be purchased for under a dollar, and they really hit the spot on a cold, rainy day in the neighborhood. The owners have done a good job with the d?cor, mixing in details from the historic brownstone the storefront derives from with more modern touches.

Toricos is a true gem of Jersey City, a mom and pop store with a friendly, down home atmosphere offering fresh, homemade ice cream at reasonable prices. In addition to the standards, Toricos offers more exotic options such as avocado, ginger, mamey (similar to an almond, cherry mix) as well as milkshakes, sundaes and ice cream pints to-go.

Zeppelin Hall Restaurant and Biergarten

88 Grand Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 721-8888
www.zeppelinhall.com

When the massive outdoor patio is open during the summer, we like to think of Zeppelin Hall as Disneyland for adults. Maybe it?s the fact that the space holds up to 500 people at a time, most of them young and attractive and all seated at picnic tables. Apparently all is not perfect in this utopia of the young and single, however, as public disputes over beer, women or both are not uncommon.
Iron Monkey

99 Greene Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 435-5756
www.ironmonkey.com

The Iron Monkey has a nice rooftop bar and an extensive beer list, but it can be difficult to get service on the rooftop during the busy summer months. The food is generally sub par for bar food, but you?ll do OK with the mac and cheese and burgers ? i.e. the basics. The Iron Monkey is just one block from the Exchange Place Path train, making it a very quick visit from Manhattan.
White Star

230 Brunswick Street
Jersey City, NJ 07302
(201) 653-9234
www.whitestarbar.com

Tucked away on a quiet corner next to Jones Park, the White Star Bar serves lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The food isn?t bad for bar food, although not all menu items are rated the same. Locals know the buffalo wings are the signature item, and the mac and cheese makes a pleasing side dish. The breakfast quesadilla tends to be a bit heavy and greasy, but it?s a lot of food for the price. There are several HD TVs, making it a good spot to catch a game.

LITM

www.litm.com

A trendy, high-priced but chic hangout, LITM (short for ?Love Is The Message? ? don?t ask us) offers bar food ranging from a house beet salad to sliders to fried artichokes. While the menu goes beyond the traditional, the food is over salted and lacking in complexity. LITM does showcase some good local art, and is conveniently located two blocks from the Grove Street Path train. $3 Happy Hour mini martinis.

What really got my goat the other day was a woman who totally took advantage and put other people and dogs at risk. This woman came from somewhere on Dudley street, sat on a bench in front of Portside and let her aggressive, unfixed schnauzer run into the park alone, completely out of her sight. The dog took a crap and ran up to all the toddlers who were playing in the front circle part of the park. It also ran up to my dog, still on leash, and tried to hump him. The dog ran loose for at least 5 minutes until a friend recognized the dog and went to find the owner, thinking that the dog had escaped from home. It drove me nuts that this woman thought she could treat the street and the park like her own suburban backyard without regard for the other people who use it. If I see her again, I will ask her to keep a better eye on her dog.


so let me get this straight: you let your dog off its leash, then complain about the lax rules and use another person's unleashed dog as an example?

you, sir or madam, are part of the problem.



Took the words out of my mouth, maybe because that dog was leashed at the time or they have "control" over their dog. The only place for an unleashed dog is your home, a dog park, or your own fenced in backyard.. Do us all a favor what about people who have dog aggressive dogs who want to walk their dogs in the park on Washington? THEY DON'T and avoid it because of people like you.. not fair at all

You're prob right. Every weekend there are odd stoop sales on Jersey Ave between Wayne and CC Blvd. Vhs tapes, kids toys and clothes that dont seem like any of the people selling they would have owned them.



Bango! They sell them, and further more it is illegal to take from the clothing bins which is why they try to bombard you before you put it in. They can get arrested for that because its technically stealing... I donate mine to the shelters there is a womens/children shelter on Bergen Ave and they have the shelter downtown for men as well. I always heard that story that the clothing in those bins never makes it to the needy... I dont know, I never trusted them or I use Freecycle.

Homeless Man has Dog Taken Away
#96
Home away from home
Home away from home


THIS IS PRETTY HEARTBREAKING, ON NJ.COM IT HAS PICS OF THE GUY CRYING FOR HIS DOG, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO THINK.... RIGHT OR WRONG..



Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey JournalWilliam C. Leonard Jr., a homeless man who lives under a bridge in Jersey City, says he's heartbroken since his dog, Franklin, was taken away by the city animal control officer.

A homeless man whose dog was taken away by Jersey City's animal control officer is demanding its return -- but the pet has already been adopted, according to officials.

William C. Leonard Jr., who lives underneath the Shawn Carson and Robert Nguyen Memorial Bridge, claims that Franklin, a beagle/basset hound mix, was given to him and another homeless friend early last month by a man who would sometimes fish under the bridge.

Leonard, 49, a former county and city worker, said the man also gave them a bag of dog food and the dog's veterinary records.

"I fell in love with him," Leonard said, describing Franklin as his "friend" and "baby."
The dog was taken away on Aug. 6 after concerned neighbors noticed the dog tied to a pole for some time in front of 183 Mallory Place, one door down from the EZ-Market Liquor Store, said Joseph Frank, the city's animal control officer.

"He (the dog) looked pretty clean. He had to have been recently given to them or found," he said. Frank says he offered Leonard's friend, who claimed the dog was his, a finder's fee of $25, which the man accepted and then turned over the dog.

But Leonard and his friend, who declined to give his name, turned up at the Liberty Humane Society animal shelter the following day demanding the dog be returned. Leonard said he provided the dog's veterinary records as proof of ownership, but was not given the dog because he is homeless.

"I've got all my faculties about me. I'm not an idiot. I'm just homeless," said Leonard, who believes he is capable of taking care of the pet. "I want my dog back."

Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey JournalWilliam Leonard, a Jersey City homeless man whose dog has been taken away, breaks down and cries as he talks about how much he misses his dog Franklin.

Interim Executive Director Nikki Dawson confirmed that shelter management at the time did not want to release the dog to Leonard because he is homeless and said the dog was adopted on Aug. 18.

"He shouldn't be punished because he happens to be homeless," said Freeholder Bill O'Dea, who tried to help Leonard. "Obviously he was able to care for the dog for a substantial amount of time before (Animal Control) got involved."

Dawson, who was appointed to her post on Aug. 23 for a 60-day period, said that the shelter has since changed its policy.

"I would have returned the dog and from now on, if someone has proof of ownership, the animal will be returned to them," Dawson said.

And it's possible, she said, Leonard and Franklin could be reunited.

"There's always the possibility that the current owner might give up the pet, but that's very difficult." she said.

Okay sooooo

At the time of the inspection the state counted 66 dogs and 162 cats, down from 93 dogs and 289 cats during the Aug. 4 visit.

Jeffrey said most of the animals have been adopted or given to rescue groups. She said 24 dogs were put down.


ACCORDING TO MY CALCULATIONS

93-24= 69

THAT MEANS 3 DOGS HAVE BEEN SENT TO SHELTERS OR RESCUES... HOW IS THAT MOST??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Pet shelter cited for poor conditions has to make plan for improvements
Saturday, August 28, 2010
By MELISSA HAYES
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER
Liberty Humane Society has failed another state inspection, but the Jersey City animal shelter won't be forced to close.

The state Department of Health and Senior Services is giving the shelter two weeks to develop a plan to address concerns detailed in a seven-page report.

The state sent a letter to the board earlier this month giving it a week to address inhumane conditions observed during an Aug. 4 inspection.

Interim board member Diana Jeffrey said all of the dogs have been removed from inadequate pop-up cages and dividers were removed from cages to give animals more room. But the state says the cages are still inadequate.

Jeffrey said the shelter's new board, which includes three interim members appointed when the old board quit in late July over a disagreement with management, is trying to fix problems caused by the previous shelter management.

The Aug. 24 report also cites the shelter for failing a recent fire inspection; having leaky pipes and other maintenance issues; improper storage of pet food; insect issues; need for improved sanitation; and a need to improve isolation areas for sick animals.

The dog cages, which met state requirements when they were purchased in 2000, are all too small.

"There's nothing we can do about that except for build a new building or take out all the cages and put in new cages," she said.

At the time of the inspection the state counted 66 dogs and 162 cats, down from 93 dogs and 289 cats during the Aug. 4 visit.

Jeffrey said most of the animals have been adopted or given to rescue groups. She said 24 dogs were put down.

Shelter volunteers and rescue groups have lashed out at the board for euthanizing dogs. A volunteer released a video of Fuller, a pitbull who was put down this week, saying the dog passed an ASPCA behavioral test.

But Jeffrey said the dog failed several evaluations and was too dangerous.

She attributes the spike in euthanasia to the previous management hoarding dogs in an effort to become no-kill. She said normally three or four dogs would have been killed a month.

Matt DeAngelis of New York-based no-kill shelter Pets Alive has criticized Liberty Humane on its Facebook page and in his blog on http://petsalive.com threatening legal action if the shelter doesn't become no-kill.

But Jeffrey said that won't happen overnight.

"There would have to be a five-year plan to go no-kill and I think that would be a great goal," she said. "If people would stop attacking us and start helping us we could reach that goal much faster."

I agree with missmags that closer to JFK is definitely better than closer to Bergen. The difference between the 2 roads is very noticeable. With that said, owning a 2Br/2Ba at 145k in a decent area is better than renting a smaller place downtown. How far down do people really think prices will go? The area isn't THAT bad. If you're going to be living here for 5-10 years, then it's a good investment.

Yes there's crime in Jersey City, more so in this area than downtown. I bought a 1/1 on JFK by Lincoln Park earlier this year and I do not regret it at all. During the day I doubt you'll ever have a problem. My gf is 24, white, and tiny and she walks the dog by herself around the neighborhood during the day and never has problems. It's a city so at night is a different story, just use common sense. I wouldn't walk on Bergen Ave by myself at night. If you come home after sunset then take a cab. It's $5 from JSQ to this area.

There is nothing in the area to do. Zero bars, zero shopping, zero restaurants (2 good things in area are Lincoln Park and the new Gold's gym). If you know that coming into the neighborhood, then it's not a problem. Be prepared to drive downtown or get what you need on the way home from work in NYC.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to message me.



"My gf is 24, white, and tiny"

really?? So if your big, black and old you have nothing to worry about? JESUS!

Although I do not agree with all of his philosophy, a few of my thoughts were first outlined by Nathan Winograd, Director of the No Kill Advocacy Center.

It would be hard to design a more frustrating environment for a dog than a kennel. Most shelters are filled with strange smells, dogs are placed alone in a barren kennel, there are lots of strangers, and the dog?s daily routine is completely changed. Since they can?t talk and tell you, ?Leave me alone, I am scared and don?t understand what is happening to me,? they communicate in the only way that biology allows ? by backing up, barking, growling, and when all else fails, snapping.

One can only imagine what messages a dog senses from the smells in a shelter. Humans will detect the foul odor of urine while a k-9 classifies the odors as stress, sickness, fear, aggression, intact males, and females in heat.

Dogs evaluated outside of the shelter facility may perform sufficiently well enough for staff and volunteers help train and cope with losing a familiar environment and perhaps develop habits that may get them into new homes.

I suppose if the evaluation methodology is made public, all concerned may have their fears hopefully assuaged and not justified. Three years ago at the HCSPCA, a ?professional behaviorist and licensed veterinarian? would stick a foreign object into the kennel and if the dog acted aggressively, it was euthanized. Later, an outside professional assessed the dogs and essentially agreed that all of the HCSPCA?s dogs should be put down.

The following is a list of dogs that would have been killed had these ?professionals? had their way. Many JCListers will recognize some of these dogs:

Vinnie...................aka Iceberg ..............Alive and well in Jersey City
Dodger...................................................Alive and well in Bayonne
Gabe..................................................... Alive and well in Bayonne
Cassie..................aka Sasha.................Alive and well in Jersey City
Percy....................aka Rider...................Alive and well in Jersey City
Dixie Chick..............................................Alive and well in Jersey City
Tank .......................................................Alive and well in Rutherford
Nigel ....................aka Max..................... Alive and well in Jersey City
Antonio............... aka Bullet.................. Alive and well in Hoboken
Frasier....................................................Alive and well in NYC
Grant......................................................Alive and well in Brooklyn
George.................................................. Alive and well as an office dog in New York City
Sadie..................aka Sadie....................Alive and well in Staten Island
Ben.................. aka Blackie.................. Alive and well in New Orleans
Selma.....................................................Alive and well in Hoboken
Bruno.....................................................Alive and well in Oradell
Stella................. aka Misty.....................Lived 1 year with a loving mother ? died of natural causes
Scruffy....................................................Sanctuary
Mozo......................................................Sanctuary

In some temperament testing strategies, shelters have found a trouble-free alternative to implementing a robust adoption plan, awareness and public relations program, and a strategy to reduce the overpopulation of unwanted pets. There are good people at LHS and I have personally seen and participated in temperament testing at the facility. The start of this thread began with severe claims that I hope are not true.

LHS is having a tough six weeks. Please, adopt, foster, volunteer, or donate to ?our? community shelter. Let?s face it, if every dog passed its evaluation tomorrow, the place would still be overcrowded. Instead of fighting on JCList, how about if each poster paid for one spay/neuter of a shelter animal? It is under 100 dollars and is a tangible effort. Likewise, the next time a friend, neighbor, or acquaintance is looking a specific breed, have them contact a breed-specific rescue instead of supporting a puppy mill by purchasing their pet in a store. Better yet, visit LHS and find a wonderful companion.



Vinny aka Iceberg is the guy in my profile pic.... I love him to DEATH and he is the biggest mushiest dog ever, he sleeps in the bed with the kids and they ride him like a horse... he has NEVER EVER EVER showed one iota of aggression even when attacked by my other much smaller dog... he is a big baby and still to this day find it shocking that anyone marked him for death because of his aggression... so that just goes to show you these tests are really whacked out.

Re: Liberty Humane Society offering DOUBLE DUTY DISCOUNT ADOPTIONS this weekend

Home away from home


I think having the free adoption events is one of the best ideas at LHS. In Manhattan the adoption fees are, I believe 60 for a mixed breed and 100 for a pure bred or puppy under 1 year. I think 175 fee definitely does deter a lot of people from adopting from Liberty. If I was looking to add to my brood I would either go to Manhattan or wait for another event at LHS. I understand that it costs to run a shelter but John made an excellent point that it also costs to keep that dog. I always thought Liberty's adoption fees were steep considering the high percentages of bully dogs, I think by charging a lesser fee and having the adoption events it would greatly benefit the shelter. Of course I am no expert and everyone has their own opinion but if I was looking to adopt I would definately skip right over that 175 fee and head to Manhattan to save a dog who probablly has less time left

second, recieving a passing grade on an inspection and achieving the highest live release rates the shelter has ever had would hardly warrant as involved of an effort as the current state of affairs does.

your argument is flawed and quite obviously just a personal jab.

until any of the catty, negative people on this thread can actually document the bs they are saying or show some real numbers, please dont expect to be taken seriously. that would be the only "joke" on this thread.

Munchmobile does JC - 2nd Street bakery and New Park tavern reviews
Home away from home
Home away from home


http://www.nj.com/entertainment/dinin ... rban_eats.html#incart_hbx

Our heroes

Second Street Bakery in Jersey City is more deli than bakery, where you can pick up nice, hot sopressata and sharp provolone for your sandwich. All the bread is made here, in a brick oven. The owner is Tony Siniscalchi, whose uncle Felipe founded the bakery. There are also stuffed rolls and soup ? can you say pasta fagioli?

The eggplant special sandwich got a lukewarm review from Wisniewski. ?No taste, bland,? she said. Subs here are called ?cold combos.? Charles Burke ?loved? the No. 4 (sliced turkey, boiled ham, imported Swiss, lettuce, tomatoes and mayo). Denis Gozlan admired the ?velvety? tuna in the Italian tuna sandwich, with onions and roasted peppers.

Best sandwich: the No. 6, with hot sopressata, hot capicola, sharp provolone, sun-dried tomatoes and Italian dressing on terrific bread.

You heard of the horse with no name? How about the bar with no name?

The New Park Tavern in Jersey City ? looks like a bar from the outside, but there?s no sign ? is dark and atmospheric, with its eerily lit green columns, earthquake-proof wooden tables and tiny grill. The owners are Anthony and Robert Courtney, whose daughter, Cara, doubled as bartender and short-order cook on our visit.

The burgers have always been the bar?s strong point, but the corned beef sandwich stole the show. ?The best corned beef I have ever had,? Wisniewski said. ?My teeth slid right through both the bread and the inch-high pile of paper-thin-sliced beef.??

The plain burger is not in the same league as Krug?s in Newark, but it?s darned good.




DAMN! Now I gotta try that corned beed

Thank you David once again for clearing up all the questions, I for one have. Rather then a half assed post that no one can understand, I think it is important right now to address any of the concerns that the animal community has I have asked over at DogJC but was told that they will not "discuss" it on that board and I was told I should find out more over on JCList. That kind of made me shocked because DogJC is I think a community group for dog owners of JC that was created for owners to talk about concerns regarding the dog community, their dogs and just general chit-chat. I have met some great people and dogs from DogJC but still was appalled that I was told I couldnt talk about that very important dog issue in that group. I have been meaning to post on here concerning this issue and i'm glad I have.

Re: Inner City Youth Volunteer Programs - Does anyone know of any?

The biggest liability of all is abandoning our city's youngsters, hiding in our comfortable little homes, and letting "someone else" do something.

If we don't step up and help, mentor, guide, inspire and keep the youth of our community on track, we'll be reading more and more stories like the five-year-old that was recently shot at Montgomery Gardens.

Programs like PAL currently take 150 kids off the streets every day, help them with their homework, involve them in sports, and give them something positive to do. Their workforce is all volunteer - interested adults from the community that realize they can and do indeed make a difference.

It's one part of the complex puzzle of helping the kids in our city - but it's a start - and I encourage anyone that is interested to get involved.



Was Heights serious? If so what a jack ass. So as much as everyone complains on here about the bad kids and shit they do when finally someone steps up and wants to help its called a liability? Disgusting, thanks JerseyMom for the good info, I am actually going to look into the PAL as well. And Miss Mags "mad props to you lol"

I have had both, I am now with Direct TV, and I feel that they go out a little more easily then Dish and stay out longer too. Both are good prices

I tried it again after a couple of years to see if it was a better experience, it wasn?t. I am not concerned about missing armrests and the aesthetics. My ojida comes from the plethora of hoodlums talking throughout the entire movie, answering their phones, etc.

A couple years ago I first swore off Newport theaters when people were talking on the cell phones, screaming educative comments like ?wha he be thinkin...he crazy?, and a guy near me was translating the entire movie from English to Arabic for the guy next to him.

I will continue going to Edgewater, Secaucus or Battery Park City for another couple of years.



I was LMAO rading your post, that's pretty funny.. I have gone to the late night showings during the week anytime between 9-11 and there is hardly anyone there, I NEVER attempt any movie theatre on the weekends, and if I do its an early or late showing on a Sunday.... that being said has anyone been to the new theatre in Secaucus? Do they have leather seats? any good/bad reviews I been dying to go there.

I agree with Wideman

I once live in the Bronx two blocks from Yankee stadium. I parked under the trains because obviously parking sucked there... it was a shitty area to park and my window was smashed overnight. I didn't even bother to call the cops, they wouldn't have done anything and it is all apart of living in an urban city. I fixed the window and moved on, not saying it is right that these things happen but they do, and no amount of gentrification is going to completely eradicate these things.

Oh, Leigh I totally understand you, I am pretty much the same person who hates blanket statements, check my previous posts, I am friends with people who some here would classify as thugs by their way of dress or music preference. If those people have helped you then that's very heart warming to say the least.
