my only experience with this place is going in and asking if they take credit or debit, the girl says that they don't, which isnt the end of the world but then we say we'll take out money and be right back and she sarcastically says "yeah sure." had all intentions of coming back until that comment.

The main difference between JC and NYC is that NYC has a constant background noise of cabs, people, etc. JC is basically very quiet with the occasional bit of noise. As a result that noise seems much louder and more annoying here versus NYC.


that's not true at all. there's so many quiet neighborhoods in manhattan. even when i lived in midtown off 41st street in tudor city you wouldn't hear any street noise the entire day. granted it was a dead end street but to say there is always constant background noise in nyc is misleading.

but anyway, jersey city like most cities is filled with apartment buildings and row homes. if you got thousands of people stacked on top of each other working and going out different times of the day you're going to hear something.

you shouldn't move here expecting that everyone around you is on the same sleep schedule as you. the people complaining seem to not care about having a lively, upbeat, and friendly community. it makes me happy to see everyone hanging out at groove on grove enjoying the environment they live in. who cares if someone above needs to turn up their tv because of it.

this honestly seems like it was taken from an onion article. are people really this uptight and boring here?

?I live over in Newport Towers and I think it?s a little loud on the street, especially on the weekends,? said resident Saresh Choudhury. ?Many times I have to turn my TV up louder so I can watch a movie or something. It?s gotten louder since I moved here [seven years ago].?

sure i get the whole street art thing, property is theft the world is our canvas blah blah blah, but the grafiti artist in this case (like in most cases), is very unimaginative. wow, power receptacles ironically look like faces! amazing. the worst part is that he/she is putting them in confusing places like the base of the clock on newark ave. really? i dont want to look at your boring art to begin with, why ruin a perfectly good clock.

Re: The loud motorcycle tearing through Downtown this morning

Does anyone think the person on the motorcycle actually cares that they're waking people up? I doubt it. They have a different lifestyle. In a city you have more people. More people doing different things at different times of the day. Deal with it, or like everyone else already said, move to the suburbs... that candy-coated place where they collect trash at 1pm and not 1am. I wish I was able to go riding at 3am instead of getting my beauty rest for my wonderful office job. I think everyone needs to watch easy rider before they make anymore posts like this.

id rather see people opening up a nice clothing store or boutique themselves with similar styles on newark ave but yes an h&m would be better than strawberry or rainbow. but that's never going to happen cause people are obviously shopping at those stores keeping them in business. anyway, the masterminds behind jersey city would rather see a row of abandoned stores.

you mean fastest commute, not best. and brooklyn is a big place it would probably take you longer and cost more to commute from where you can afford to live compared to jersey city.

i lived in manhattan for a bit and was able to walk to work so yeah the commute was the great (and free) but then you must factor in that you pay much more for much smaller apartments and food and everything else around is much more expensive. even if you can afford it you're a sucker for paying that much.

my girlfriend lives in brooklyn, if i commute from her place it takes almost the same time (usually 10 min longer due to MTA delays) as when i leave from grove street but the people on my way there are so disgusting and obnoxious and rowdy. id rather be on a train with quiet commuters at that time of the morning.

well i wouldnt be attempting to skateboard on this street during rush hour. walking is dangerous enough during those times. it's not crazy on columbus in the evenings and at night or like a sunday afternoon. and i guess im more psyched about skating across columbus. instead of stopping cause the road is destroyed.

so based on not receiving february's rent... he assumed you were gone for good without coming back for your things, was able to immediately rent it to someone for the exact amount of time you were gone still without knowing when/if you were coming back, yet he cashed your checks for the following two months? why doesn't this story add up?

For the hell of it i calculated what I've spent during the 8 years I was a driver for car purchase, insurance, gas, repairs, maintenance, etc. Came up with an average of $7,500 per year. I spend $650 per year to ride the path and barely use the MTA or NJ transit. Incredible.

When I heard the first ten minute delay notification this morning I knew I should have jumped on that first or second WTC train that passed. By the time the line was suspended it was too late and the next few were much more packed. It's funny that when a line is suspended and we get reverted, the path doesn't lose any money, and the MTA makes extra $2.25 per person that they otherwise wouldn't have made that day.

if you wanna be technical, the area being discussed in this thread is what jersey city calls "waterfront district" there's signs for it.

I hate that there's no grass over there, and if there is, there's a sign saying not to come near it. they can easily add some kind of waterfront park.

Grove and Bay? There's a vintage clothing store, a wine shop, a few restaurants, and like you said that parking garage. Do you really think the area looks unsafe. It's two blocks away from the path station!

i spent about 600 bucks to build my bike exactly the way i want it about 4 years ago, and if i take it out for a ride it doesnt leave my sight. when i come back home it stays inside with me. i guess if i ever need to leave it somewhere outside for awhile or over night ill be buying a cheaper, expendable bike just for that purpose.

the shoprite in jersey city is a dream compared to any key foods, food dimensions, associated, etc in brooklyn. you have no idea how good we have it. my girlfriend was shocked that our shoprite even has a natural food aisle. you people need to be so pampered.
