Sewing Machine Repair

The last time I tuned up my machine was, I believe, 2002 and I took it somewhere in Union City but I cannot remember where. Does anyone have a recommendation that is relatively near to Jersey City?

Thanks very much in advance.

Happy for this bump. And, I would like to know the outcome too, if anyone can share. I appreciate Grove's bike lane so much I plan my route around it. More, please.

Thank you, but that site looks too downtowny and too advertisey. I liked the cleaner look and sort of lack of focus on downtown and Newport.


Agreed. I'm missing Kannekt. Yelp helps but the user demographic seems young, and recently moved in. I liked that (I think) I've been on Hoboken/JC Kannekt since late 90s/early 2000s...I hope they will archive their data.

The thing about BK and NYC is that its very walkable. I walked from Williamsburg to Cypress Hill a few weeks ago and it was a nice interesting walk. When I walk from GV to DTJC is not very enjoyable nor is it interesting.


This is a great point, and one that I hope is paid attention to as the new administration feeds redevelopment of neighborhoods outside of Downtown.

Re: Whole Foods in JC?
#5
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Lots of exaggeration about Shoprite Marin Plaza so, I'll defend:
Produce, I've had no out of the ordinary problems in 14 years of shopping here
Fish/Deli, folks doing their job, very helpful, sometimes juggling breaks amongst each other so the wait/service is confusing
Prices, there is actually a scanner down by the frozen aisle, but I'm good with labeling and when I have a quarrel on a price, cashiers or I go over to confirm (standard customer service)
Clientele, I won't say more than: Get. Over. Yourself. JCLIST Snobs.
Shopping carts, same as anywhere, busy times = you may have to walk to pick up a cart by someone's car at the fences

Funny thing is, I wonder if you transfer these complaints into a Whole Foods: produce issues, lack of immediate customer service, price confusion, screaming yuppie kids and/or parents, missing shopping carts; would the complainers still get at Whole Foods for all of the above?

Nothing until they put someone in the hospital. The ACLU has seen to that.


If you understood mental health you might understand how the ACLU served to protect all people who might be misdiagnosed and forced into treatment. It is so much easier than you might suspect to diagnose someone with a mental illness given the iterations the DSM goes through yearly. Hey, you may even see our narcissistic/passive aggressive online behaviours listed as a symptom. :)

To the OP: Listen, if people with mental illness are living on the streets, they need our help! Are you part of the community you live in? Do these people get in your way of sipping Starbucks, playing video games at Barcade, and hula hooping at a farmer's market? Well, then I want to add your behaviour as symptomatic of a mental illness.

Engage with your community. What can you do for them? What resources are available? Don't have enough time in the day to figure all this out? Subtract the time it takes to scour JCLIST and add that to your community building leisure. You, me, JCLIST, Jersey City...we will thank you in the end.

Re: Parties on 7th between Coles and Jersey

Happy to see I finally missed one of their parties this weekend. They are a nuisance. I've called the non-emergency number for many of their parties. It does nothing that I can perceive (loud convos, music, bad singing, etc, continues). I have spoken to one tenant, and was brushed off. Really not much else I (we) can do. I just close my windows, put on a fan and hope I'm super tired and fall asleep fast.

These places should be reported to the authorities. Yes, some women chose to be prostitutes, however, there is a real human trafficking problem where women and children are forced to be sex workers. Also, please be aware that this problem will grow in the next year in our area due to NJ hosting the Super Bowl in 2014.

Re: Is it safe for two single women to live in this neighborhood? Please help!

As a woman, I can tell you, we are on full alert 24 hours/7 days.

As far as Jersey City goes...I'm a "vanilla" in Hamilton Park, (as one guy posted), that has lived here for 15 years in the Heights, Downtown and Greenville. I apply the full alert rules regardless of the neighborhood I am in and pay special attention to womanly instinct, time of day and volume of people around.

However, as someone who was mugged many years ago, I've learned the bottom line is, it really doesn't matter what neighborhood you are in and at what time and with what amount of people around...if a person want to commit a crime, they will.

So, live your life with a healthy dose of caution but don't overreact and view anything outside of Downtown as unsafe. Be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are.

I'm all for more road races in Hudson County but no street permits, course subject to change, but it's up on the website? No thanks. That marathon course looks brutal, a lot of out and back routes into Bayonne and then Weehawken from Jersey City, which you runners know is not ideal when running 26.2!

Anyway, I'd welcome another half, the Newport Half is all we got and that is a out and back (with an annoying switchback in LSP), I'd love to run a new route through Jersey City or Hudson County. A Bayonne to Weehawken river run could quite do it!

Re: Armed Robbery (shotgun) on block 100 Coles St.

I remember a month ago there was a post about gun fire in the middle of the night near Dixon Mills. It woke me up and I thought: gun shots. On JCLIST, folks closer attributed it to fireworks due to people setting them off previous nights. From an email sent from my neighborhood association a week ago, I see that a man was shot down at Montgomery Gardens that night, at the same time as the gun shots heard.

A lot of crime info is shared at the Captain and neighborhood association meetings that I never see in the press. I encourage everyone to attend those respective meetings or get on an email list. Stay safe everyone.

What makes the neighborhood look like crap, moreso than just about anywhere else downtown, is the amount of garbage on the sidewalk and streets, especially between Newark and 4th.

My bad, that's my recycled art show commissioned by Abby's and Frank's. The opening is next weekend. Feel anymore legit now?

I really don't want to bump this thread but as a former Newark resident I think you should study Mayor Booker a bit more...with the eye you would give to Mayor Healy as a JC resident. You may come up with a more balanced opinion. I'm not a Republican, I'm not a Democrat. I just have my life knowledge of Newark, that causes me not to clap for him (right now). I'm a JC homeowner, and (via discussions like this) I encourage others to get to know other municipalities. Are you a resident of New Jersey?

Yes, it would put Jersey City on the map again, for current pop culture. And for the short time this is part of pop culture, it would be great for Jersey City to benefit in terms of revenue from people coming to visit. I'm fan of the show, so I don't understand the hate from most posters.

I had neighbors in the building I first owned a condo that were so dirty their apartment stunk the hallway and on ripe nights, the foyer of mine. Long story short, I called the city, they visited and did nothing. I actually heard the neighbors in the hall plan how they would fix up the place (remove pets) so they could beat a city inspection...so, there you go. I finally put the place on the market because the tenants, the condo owner and the city could not change the situation. I'm eager to see if you can make the state change your situation...or if you sell.

It boggles the mind that JC is not working on this. This could be a major boost to downtown if we could connect Exchange Place to the Park. The park itself would get so many more visitors. It could become a major destination and really unite the waterfront.

I look at the views there and it just amazes me that this is not in the works. I realize the marina is there, but so what? Make the bridge high enough and elaborate enough that it becomes a tourist attraction in and of itself. There are plenty of examples of this all over the world. A cool bridge with amazing views of NYC that leads to a beautiful park... and just like that JC becomes a destination. Get off the PATH, walk across the bridge and suddenly it is truly accessible to millions. Put a major entertainment venue like the NJPAC somewhere along the marina or farther in the park near Ellis Island, and we are looking at a world class waterfront destination.

I've lived in JC for 10 years and it has just puzzled me how this gap is not filled in. Look at the Newport bridge to Hoboken. How incredible has that connection been for Newport and Hamilton Park? The waterfront there is alive. So much so that Newport's River Market just might have a chance to make it. The same needs to be done at Jersey City's most picturesque and most historic point.


Yes!!!

Favorite spot for general stuff is Casa Vasca at Elm & Prospect, though it's a few blocks off Ferry.


I lived in Newark for a long while, and your recommendations are very good. The Marisqueira and Casa Vasca are the best.

I only differ on Rodizio. Bio na Brasa is my #1, Brasilia a close second.

I would say however, that if you are walking over to Casa Vasca to keep an extra eye out.

There is definitely not more dog poop in Hamilton Park than with the "old owners". I think I am borderline one of them "old owners". I started letting my dog run in HP 11 year ago. At that time there were specific spots I would not want my dog or myself to go because they were border/fence spots where there was tons of dog poop. In particular, the SW corner of HP. Dog poop and tall grass. I don't know the last time I saw dog poop in the park.
