Just curious, what kinds of meetings does the VA have at the armory?

Not today. But had brown water on Saturday. I assumed it was related to the water main break in Hoboken that day.

Sure wish we had a mayor who focused on infrastructure for the residents that already live here, instead of encouraging more people to move here and make the brown water "theirs."

Surprised to read it only opened last Thursday?! Went for dinner on a whim, and didn't notice any of the usual Just Opened Problems, with service or food. (Normally try to avoid new places til they work out the kinks.)

Everyone I was with enjoyed their dinner (Salmon, bouillabaisse, eggplant, HUGE salad) and the desserts were insane.

Expensive, not a place I'll stop in weekly, BUT worth it.

It's such a weird, hidden spot. I hope they overcome the location and succeed.

FWIW: I've gotten eucalyptus at P&K on Newark Ave. I *think* it's fresh because it is sold in water, like fresh cut flowers. I'm not sure if it's dyed. I don't know that much about eucalyptus in the wild! :)

but I wouldn't call the charity "non-existent." They do accept donations for their weekend "soup kitchen," if anyone would like to donate directly to the program.

I've volunteered there in the past, and it drives me CRAZY when I see/hear this dude on the train lying about a legit charity. He lays it on *real thick* during the holidays too.

Not to derail wash/fold thread, but I have been considering getting a combo washer/dryer unit. So just wondering which model you have? Thanks!

Everyone in the building says the exact same thing. Clothes come out dirty (even with a tiny load) and take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to dry. Not good.

Nice idea. And if it's your site Abhinav? Just say so.

I've volunteered for years with CityHarvest and have often wished there was something similar on this side of the river. I would note that CityHarvest has extensive procedures in place to ensure food safety, and that the food is going where it's meant to.

Hope you build that in to your new venture as well.

Re: Woman jumps from moving PATH train, hospitalized in New York, authorities say
#13
Quite a regular

Yep, took me 2 hours to get home (Grove St) from 33rd Street that night. I was on what would've been the 11:57 train.

The train was held at 33rd for "police activity," then tracks switched, then held some more. (Presumably bc they were looking for her on tracks.)

Then allowed to leave. (Presumably bc they found her and cleared tracks?)

But, slams to sudden stop between 9th and Christopher because there she is, sitting on the tracks after all!

The conductor/police confusion and miscommunication was scary. And yeah, I know I'm only seeing a small slice of the situation but all this time after 9/11 and all the money for "homeland security," it was obvious we are not safe on those trains. The bag-checks and "security guards" are theater. How could it be that easy for a person to get on, and stay on, the tracks?

(And really, how do you jump off a moving train between stations? She pried the doors open, jumped out and didn't hit the wall / get squished between the wall and the train?)

Fellow riders remained pretty calm and nice to each other, so that was good to see!

Re: should Jersey City create and implement on-street bicycle lanes?
#14
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


@tern & @heights

I agree! More racks are needed! All over the city!

When I said the new Grove racks are a mess, I meant that as an everyday-biker _and_ pedestrian.

It seems no research/design went in to planning the placement of racks. They block the flow of pedestrians at the best of times -- never mind when the farmers' market / groove on grove is set up.

(side rant)
Do not get me started on the Downtown Special Improvement "No Parking" stickers that have been stuck to bikes. New sign on pole says no bike parking over 24 hours around the time new racks went in (presumably for the city to clip abandoned bikes to make more room; sounds good!) but then someone puts a sticker on my bike locked to same pole with a handwritten "No Parking"?!

And ugggghhh they are really sticky and a pain to remove, too.

I know it used to be an ordinance you couldn't lock to city poles "when bike racks are available" but I can't find a current link to it now ...

http://www.bikejc.org/road-rules

(/side rant over)

Lanes are needed. Racks are needed. Just with REAL planning/research/design.

I just hope that whoever designs any future bike lanes is *not* the same person/committee who decided where the new bike racks should go at Grove PATH. What a mess.

We have a protected pedestrian-right-of-way allowing us 24 hour passage through the mall and Newport office tower to the PATH station on Washington Blv. This route is handicap friendly and available to all.

Your Google Maps problem report has been reviewed, and you were right! We'll update the map soon and email you when you can see the change.

Thanks for helping us to improve Google Maps!

@croft : that really sucks! I'm sorry to hear it.

@fat-ass-bike : Thanks for the advice. Had no idea this was a possibility.

and, @81905 & @CaptainQuality & @coronalime: you're right?

It doesn't make any sense to lose a day's pay to fight a $42 ticket; and I suspect I'm not the only one this has happened to, AND that they are actually counting on people not being able to go to court, or not think it's worth it, and just paying it to be done with it. Which is really the part that makes me livid.

Who is the JCPA accountable to?

Parking Ticket mistake
#22
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I got a ticket last week for not having a parking permit. Except, I have one, and have had one for years. Clearly visible.

After a few phone calls to the JCPA, I've been told I'll have to fight it in court.

So, I'd have to take a day off from work and lose a day's pay (I don't get paid, if I don't go in) to fight a $42 ticket.

Is it really possible that in the year 2011 they can't just check a database where plate numbers are linked to permit numbers, and see I have one? Is going to court really the *only* way to resolve this?

anyone know why the bus stops on hamilton park (8th and 9th Streets) became long enough for 3-4 buses? seems excessive, and the neighborhood could definitely use the parking.

not sure who (city/nj transit) i could contact about it, either.

thanks ...

thx, jaypee! just out of curiosity, how did you find Energy Plus?

it's strange that the three companies posted on the NJ CleanPower Choice site, one does not supply for our area, and the other two are middlemen.

when i went to Green Mountain's site, i got this message: "The zip code you entered is not in a competitive electricity market served by Green Mountain Energy Company. However, you can still support renewable energy for your home by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from Green Mountain."

and when i contacted Sterling Planet, was told: "We are not an actual electricity supplier. We are a green energy marketer and we purchase renewable energy certificates from green power generators and resell them, ensuring that green power is generated and put back onto the electricity grid. Your purchase would also go toward maintaining green power projects and toward building new projects." ... so, the same as Community Energy.

In short, Community Energy = surcharge on top of your bill, no savings, questionable impact. An actual alternate supplier = modest savings, green power generated and sold directly to PSE&G for use on the grid.
