Re: new POWERHOUSE ARTS DISTRICT thread
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Wow. Couple points here...

Drop the word Arts in the proposals. I apllied for those apts at 150 Bay. I had to have an income of between $20k-$55k/yr (or about) to have a shot at the lottery to buy a condo for $350k (app). I'm married, so a combined income knocked us out of the running. If I was single, I couldn't afford to buy it. Hence the catch 22. And we're not talking about 20 condos, I believe it was under 10 (but I'm sure someone here can correct me on the #).

My point - Why even have the subsidized housing? This is just being used as a catchword during election time.

As far as the Powerhouse, I'm from Baltimore. It's a tourist joint that noone from Baltimore ever visits. They say culture - I say Newport. If you call Mexican food Ole, Italian food Bertuccis, & Indian food Cafe Spice - then I gotta feeling the PowerHouse will be up your alley. Whatever.

Until storefront rents drop, liquor licenses expand, & noise restrictions ease - this will not be a cultural mecca of any kind.

High - hell yeah. Cuz that's what you got to be to eat there.

But then again, people put their babies in yoga classes, so what the hell do I know.

Re: NYC crackdown on noise -- Jersey City's new ordinance goes into effect July 17

NOISE ORDINANCE -7 decibels??!!??

I can't take a crap under 7 decibels.

FULOP - I know you pushed hard for this one. Way to go. Nice progressive approach to our growing community. I walk around Park Slope; brownstone neighborhood; lots of live music, decent pizza places, and it's boomin at 1am. It's great. Our chances of having anything like that here are shot because of this stupid ordinance. I don't even go out around here anymore because(with exception to Iron Monkey) there is no music in Jersey City.
Pro Arts or Pro Sleep?

Maybe I should open a barbershop.

There was another glaring no-show : the Guardian Angels.

Maybe we should take "potshots" at them too.

I have submitted the plans for the new Van Vorst Shooting Range.

It will be on the south side of the park shooting north. Please note that only handguns will be permitted in the western section, while all larger elephant guns and such must be kept within the eastern airlocks.

Happy shooting!

One simple, local solution would be to pay the guy who owns the department store by C.H. Martin to turn his store over to someone else. That's a store that seems to be suitable for the market and could be really useful, but the owner just glares at people like me and scares us away.
If, say, the Subia's people would take it over and give it a cool, friendly vibe, maybe it could be an engine of change all by itself.


Funny - I have the total opposite vibe. I just left CH Martins - bought some thermals! Good cheap rugs too.
Subia's on the other hand, has turned me away when I was a quater short on a $1.50 cup of coffee. Refuse to go back - even if they do have those good overpriced Israeli products.

I'm not saying we need the slew of cheap stores - I'm just saying these little boutiques will come & go. I dig a good joint as much as the next - but Subia's, Tia's, the vintage shop, etc can't make enough to not charge too much.

If Newark Ave really wants to turn around - it's gotta be nightlife. Bars & restauraunts are the answer. Not a goddam Gap store.

Downtown Jersey City is a wonderful place where nothing costs more than 99 cents.

All I'm saying is that there is nothing that resembles a neighborhood bar. The more these jerkoffs build into the sky - the less space there is to have any type of mom & pop establishments. Not saying that what the residents want; but it feels like a closed community that keeps extending its boundaries.

If owners of the buildings want to put up cameras - so be it.
I don't like the notion of requiring owners to install them. It's essentialy forcing the community to spy on itself in the name of crime.
Now I'm all for lower crime- but not at the expense of another civil liberty.

I'm sorry - if this ain't grandstanding; I don't know what is.
It's more than obvious the councilman has greater ambitions. I see this as nothing more than using a bad situation to gain personal acclaim.
