Re: Jersey City: From a Skate Park to the World

Awesome. Does this mean the skaters will give us our hockey rink (Brunswick & Pavonia) back? It's pretty much been completely taken over by them, and has been destroyed pretty badly.

Re: Swimming

Hey guys. I've been reading this website for years, but never felt compelled to register and comment until now.

I went swimming at the new Lafayette pool for the first time on Tuesday and had a really great time. It was a perfectly fine, (seemingly) safe experience. I've lived downtown since 2006 (and in JSQ prior to that), so I've never really experienced much of the JC "ghetto." I rode my bike there, and realized that the ghetto isn't really that bad if you're there early in the morning.(I showed up at the pool around 8am.) The streets are quiet, presumably because all the crackheads are sleeping

Really though, there was only 2 other people there swimming. The lap pool is apparently empty every morning according to the lifeguards. Speaking of which, the lifeguards are all kids in their late teens or early 20's, who were all perfectly professional and friendly to me.

So, with that said, if you're thinking about heading over for lap swimming, don't be afraid. Statistically speaking, crime usually only happens in the ghetto at night...rude misbehavior may happen during the day at the pool, so I can't speak to the atmosphere during the afternoon. But yeah...I also was the only white person at the pool. No big deal though to me.
