OK. Then perhaps it's not just me. If they did in fact go up Wednesday, that's not enough time.

Anyone know who to contact in order to fight this?

Car Towed, Coles betw. 5th and 6th

Car was towed by the city this morning from Coles betw. 5th and 6th to make way for road crew paving the street. When I parked on Tuesday night in a spot that was good until Friday at 10 AM, I didn't see any signs indicating that there would be paving this week.

I haven't been back to the street yet to see the placement of the warning signs, but the police officer told me over the phone that the foreman of the road crew said the "signs have been there all week".

I'm not so sure about that. I've been making way for these signs for weeks now during all of the road work, have been hyper aware of them, and I just don't believe there was a sign there Tuesday.

Anyone else encounter this issue?

you'd be surprised at how much damage a car doing just 20 MPH can inflict on a stationary object -- especially a crown victoria

i was parked across the street and was present when the owner of the audi arrived at the scene; by then the cruiser, ambulance, and fire truck were gone. had no idea it was a cop. i had actually assumed it was a hit-and-run by an intoxicated driver at the time.

i hope there is a reasonable explanation for this crash -- perhaps he swerved to avoid hitting one of the cats that lives in the grassy lot near the scene? -- the cruiser must've been doing at least 20 mph when it hit that car.

just FYI ...

Bob Lehrer put 350 Warren Street (Butler Brothers Warehouse) on the market with CBRE in December; bids are expected to reach $65M. the offering docs are floating around the web.

Hoboken Brownstones is selling the grassy lot across from Wavestone's under construction 84-unit building at 833 Jersey Ave, where Hoboken Ave and Coles St meet near the Hoboken-Jersey City border. asking is $24M, and construction should begin immediately following a sale. HFF is brokering. Buyer can put up 482 units in two buildings on the property.

Re: Embankment- Update Thread

corybraiterman and stillinjc:

no one here thinks jersey city is capable of creating a $75 mm park whose maintenance runs in the multiple millions of dollars a year. what most of us here want is a value-add project with the potential to put our city on the map. right now, our "map" consists of lsp, lefrak, crooked politicians, a strong rental market, and, soon, a jersey shore spinoff.

the park will take 5-7 years to plan and then another 5-7 years to build. but with some (uncharacteristic) creativity, it's possible to accomplish something beneficial to the city and its residents. no one is denying the obstacles; to deny the potential, as you both seem intent on doing, however, is offensively stupid. you guys must really love condos.

and as for the $7 mm: jersey city's budget is nearly a 1/2 billion dollars. do you think that a one-time expense of $7 million for land that's clearly worth many more times that, whether it be parkland or condos, is a bad investment for the city? the city paid nearly that much (federal, not city money) to put a chain-link fence underneath the turnpike.

i really admire the ambition of you both, lusting after firefighters, libraries and a quiet, bedroom-oriented jersey city where tax dollars aren't wasted. perhaps by the time city hall figures out how to accomplish all that aww-shucks super bowl-commercial just-folks bullshit, maybe the embankment will be a park in some fashion.

Re: Taqueria

did a jersey city resident just make this review up (copied below) out of spite, or has the culture finally begun rearing it's ugly (but infinitely amusing) head in the lower east side?

i actually had a similar but distinctly more ridiculous experience to the third anecdote:

i walked in with a friend about 15 minutes before closing to put in a takeout order. t a k e o u t . my friend and i tell the employee who approaches us to take our order that we need a moment to decide what we want. after, literally, about a moment, we decide what we want. during this moment -- maybe 30 seconds -- the employee has walked away. also in that span of time, my friend leaves me to take a phone call outside, entrusting me with the daunting task of placing our takeout order. when i regain the attention of the employee accepting takeout orders, i am informed that i am not allowed to order until everyone in my party is present. mind you (over-stressing this here) i was placing a takeout order. and i was even on the proper side of the counter, where takeout orders are placed. i would've accepted culpability if, god help me, i was trying to place my order from the wrong side of the counter. but i wasn't.

so here i am, a little perplexed. i go outside and gather up my friend. when we come back inside (there was no one else waiting to order, and not 30 more seconds had elapsed) i was informed by the employee, who hadn't moved from where i left him, that they were now closed and not accepting orders.

it was super douchey.

(1-star yelp review for Tacqueria LES:)

12/14/2011 The taco was decent, but nothing better than you can get at an "authentic" taco cart.

The service here was a joke. A woman came up after I ordered and started babbling to me, the customer, about how her co-worker left Nyquil on the front counter or something.
Then the co-worker comes back and shoves money back in my hand, as he tells me he is giving me the money back I paid to put guacamole on my taco because, since it is "against [their] policy" to do so, he wasn't going to do it anymore.

Then a girl comes in with her dog, which is wearing a vest, and politely states that it is a service dog and asked where the best place would be to seat her - the confused and rude staff didn't know what to do. They went to the back. Some stoner manager guy came over and told her they can't serve her, WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW.

This place is just so lame, none of the people are from anywhere around here, and the customer service is terrible. The tacos are decent but even my friend who originally reccomended I tried it out was just griping to me about how they wouldn't seat her and her friend in the not-that-busy restaurant until their 3rd friend got there, even though he wasn't going to eat.

Re: Walk the Bergen Arches?

any references or stories pointing to incidents of violent crime or the fence being erected?

i've been through there a few times. on the first there was a homeless camp not 100 feet west of Palisades Ave., where we nervously (we were 7 or 8 people) walked past three men cooking canned food over a barrel fire.

another time (i was with one other person -- my brother), i saw a man hiding behind a trestle nearer the end of the cut, under one of the shorter tunnels. not sure if he had malicious intent or was just concealing himself from us, but we kept a close eye on him for a good distance. after that experience, i haven't been back. you're definitely taking some risk traipsing around there.

2 pitas are the truth. pricy but the quality matches the cost.

haaaaa, i've also had this experience at ibby's re: halfway home thinking, wait, pretty sure i was overcharged. perhaps i wasn't cooking the math wrong. and they are grossly overpriced to begin with.

it's always been service with a sneer at ibby's. their food is slightly better than gypsy grill's, but the service and prices at gypsy are right. the owner there is super friendly.
