I stopped by yesterday to watch the tennis match and had a few beers, the drafts were unavailable but the vibe was still very M.A.E. with out the quirky furnishings

It was nice to see allot of the old familiar faces. I did not eat so I can't comment on the food.

I am glad to see this place open and such a nice lively crowd on a Sunday afternoon with their kids and families.

Good Luck!

I finally got there last night, awesome vibe, a little young but not obnoxious.

I think they will be fine. It was a full house. They were not showing movies last night, but there was a fashion brand event which featured stores from West Side, DTJC, and Newark.


The food is the real deal, love the salsa and ceviche. The staff was very warm and friendly.
It definitely did not have a Jersey City feel, it felt more like Brooklyn.

Re: Sunnyside Academy in Port Liberte video captures worker abusing 2 tots: cops
#16
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal
A second employee of Sunnyside Academy child care center in Jersey City's Port Liberte has been charged with abusing a child entrusted to the care of the establishment, officials said.

Young Cha, 29, of Belleville, was arrested today by officers of the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office's Special Victims Unit and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and child abuse, an official said.

On April 29, Sunnyside employee Ann Bactawar, 26, of Jersey City, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of child abuse, officials said.

SVU detectives working on the Bactawar case are in possession of a large amount of digitally recorded video from security cameras in the daycare. Continued viewing of the video led to the charges against Cha, who is accused of slapping a 17-month-old boy, according to the criminal complaint.

On the 29th, a Jersey City couple was shocked when they picked up their 19-month-old son from the daycare and found his face bruised and lip swollen.

The next day the boy's father went to the academy and with an administrator, watched video of Bactawar allegedly upending the boy from a box he was standing on, sending the child crashing to the floor where he smashed his face. The video also shows Bactawar allegedly physically abusing a 16-month old boy.

Bactawar's bail was set at $100,000 and she quickly posted. Cha apparently posted bail as well because an official at the Hudson County jail in Kearny said she was not being housed there this evening. Cha was arrested at her home, an official said.

The Jersey Journal was informed this evening of Cha's arrest by the parent of a child at the daycare.

A phone message left at Sunnyside seeking comment this evening was not immediately

I'm having a hard time believing that. and 49k for a house in JC? Come one now we're not Detroit. I would have understood 90k at least. 500k for a house in the worst part of the Bronx? I highly doubt that they are in the worst part. I've been to "the worst parts" of the Bronx. If somebody pays that much for a house in those sections, God help them.


If you say so, my neighbor just purchased an investment property on MLK for 54k while the same building in The Bronx Hunters Point would have gone for 340k

Effort includes opportunity to get homebuyer education; qualify for $15,000 in Jersey City/Newark and $30,000 in the Bronx/Brooklyn for down payment assistance to purchase affordable home

JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 07, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- --Effort launches at June 7 & 8 event to be held at Pier 94 in Manhattan; homebuyers can apply for down payment assistance grants and participate in homebuyer support programs

--NeighborWorks America non-profit affiliates La Casa de Don Pedro of Newark and Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City will provide homebuyer education and help qualified prospective homeowners reserve down payment assistance grants. Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City will determine income eligibility

--Similar events in 17 housing markets have helped create more than 2,850 new homeowners through Wells Fargo LIFT program Down Payment Assistance

Wells Fargo, the nation's largest home mortgage lender, today announced that the company's New York-New Jersey CityLIFT(SM) program will be available in Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx and Brooklyn on June 7 & 8. The CityLIFT(SM) program is a collaboration between Wells Fargo Bank N.A., Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx, and Brooklyn officials, and NeighborWorks America, a national non-profit organization which creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes and improve their lives. The program is designed to provide down payment assistance and homebuyer education programs in areas most impacted by the financial crisis. The CityLIFT(SM) program includes a $9.5 million investment for down payment assistance grants and homebuyer support programs to help consumers achieve successful, sustainable homeownership and is for qualified potential homebuyers interested in living in a home in Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx and Brooklyn.

The New York-New Jersey CityLIFT(SM) program will include a free homebuyer workshop on Friday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at Pier 94 in Manhattan.

At the event, potential homebuyers can find out if they qualify for the down payment assistance program and reserve funds - $15,000 in Jersey City/Newark or $30,000 in the Bronx/Brooklyn - for 60 days for home purchases even if they have yet to find a property. In addition, prospective homebuyers may stop by the Wells Fargo Affordable Home Tour(SM) viewing center to preview featured homes available for sale in local neighborhoods.

Prospective homebuyers can register at www.wellsfargo.com/citylift and learn more about the New York-New Jersey CityLIFT(SM) program by calling 1-866-802-0456. Pre-registration is encouraged, although walk-ins are welcome.

Wells Fargo will collaborate with Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx, and Brooklyn officials, NeighborWorks America, and local NeighborWorks affiliates La Casa de Don Pedro of Newark and Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) of New York City to implement the CityLIFT(SM) program.

The programs in Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx and Brooklyn are part of 20 housing markets that will benefit from a total of $170 million Wells Fargo has committed through its LIFT(SM)programs (including NeighborhoodLIFT(SM) and CityLIFT(SM)) to support sustainable housing in cities affected by the economic downturn.

"Today, while there are many homes available at attractive purchase prices and mortgages are available at historically low interest rates, many families are still unable to purchase a home because they struggle with making the down payment," said Lucia Gibbons, Wells Fargo's Northern New Jersey regional president. "The CityLIFT(SM)program will help address this issue for homebuyers by providing down payment assistance that can help make a mortgage payment more affordable."

"NeighborWorks America and Wells Fargo's innovative partnership helps thousands of homebuyers achieve sustainable homeownership," said Eileen Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of NeighborWorks America. "The LIFT program is designed to help potential homebuyers achieve their dream of homeownership, and shows them that pre-purchase homebuyer education and counseling is a critical component to successful and sustainable homeownership."

"As is the case in many cities across America, there are people who would like to purchase a home but for some reason or another they do not have down payment funds," said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz. "I am excited that CityLIFT(SM)is coming to the Bronx to assist people so they can own a home."

"My administration has a long-standing commitment to providing our residents with quality, affordable housing," said Newark Mayor Cory A. Booker. "Down payment assistance programs are essential as we work to strengthen our housing market and provide Newark residents with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed as homeowners."

"New homeowners are coming to Brooklyn in droves because our neighborhoods are bustling with activity and excitement," said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. "CityLIFT(SM) will help those who want to live here with the resources to get started - and with education on the home purchasing process. This is a win-win for everyone."

"Owning a home is the American dream and CityLIFT(SM)provides those who need down payment assistance with financial resources to make that dream a reality," said Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy. "We also welcome the opportunity to have more people living in our great city and becoming part of a community that is one of the most diverse in America."

Down payment assistance of $15,000 is available to those who qualify to purchase a home in Jersey City or Newark - and $30,000 for those seeking to live in the Bronx or Brooklyn. To qualify for down payment assistance, applicants must meet certain criteria including annual income not exceeding 120 percent of the median income for the area (income maximums vary depending on family size); an eight-hour homebuyer education session with a HUD-approved counselor such as NeighborWorks America affiliates; and a commitment to stay in the home for five years and qualification for a first mortgage on the property. Participating homebuyers can obtain mortgage financing from any qualified lender.

"Jersey City, Newark, the Bronx and Brooklyn were significantly affected by the housing crisis," said Michelle Lee, Wells Fargo's Northeast regional president. "The CityLIFT(SM) program will help families achieve successful homeownership which is not just about having enough money on hand and qualifying for a mortgage. It's also about knowing how to navigate the home buying process, what to expect once you become a homeowner, and having a trusted advisor to turn to when questions come up."

The CityLIFT(SM) program is designed to provide down payment assistance and homebuyer education programs in areas most impacted by the financial crisis. The program was developed in connection with the 2012 settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, and is a collaboration between Wells Fargo Bank N.A. and NeighborWorks America.

The next stop is Saturday, 05/04 at The Bethune Center 140 MLK Drive (Parking lot.)


Some tips for going to these clinics:

Bring water for your pet.

Do not bring food for your dog. Please feed him or her before coming to the clinic.

All cats must be in a carrier that has ventilation.

If you have more than one pet, bring along another person. For example, if you have to license your dog and your cat needs shots, if you are by yourself you will have to wait to get the dog licensed before moving on to the wellness shots.

Understand that some pets need extra attention by the vet, which may increase your waiting time. Be patient.

If you are licensing for the first time, do not bring every vet record?only the last rabies shot information and proof of spay or neuter if applicable. It will make the process go much faster.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to email me at pinkowitzr@jcnj.org or call 201-547-5507.


I attended this last weekend, and got there about 11:30 in the morning and it was a line two blocks long. I left and came back around 2 PM and breezed right through.

This was a very organized event and encourage all pet owners to attend. If the next one is anything like the one at MLK be patient lots of people show up, and bring an umbrella this weekend.

Re: Mugging Warren Street

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


By Ron Zeitlinger/The Jersey Journal

Two Pennsylvania men robbed a woman's purse on a Downtown Jersey City street Monday night, but they were arrested 20 minutes later when police tracked them by using a GPS in the woman's stolen cell phone, authorities said.
The Jersey City woman, 30, was walking on Warren Street at 11:30 p.m. when she was approached by two men, later identified as Jayson Irizarry-Ingles, 24, and Pedro A. Gonzales, 31, both of Allentown, Pa., police said.

The men started tugging on the woman's purse, and one said "Hurry up and give me the f---ing bag," according to police reports. The Dudley Street woman fell to the ground and the men fled.

After reporting the robbery, the woman helped police track the GPS signal from her phone to the Hudson Motor Lodge in Bayonne. Police later pulled over a station wagon on Route 1&9 in Jersey City they believed the robbers were inside and found a cell phone in the back seat, police said.

From the police station, the woman called her cell phone and the phone found in the car rang, police said.

All four people in the vehicle, Irizarry-Ingles, Gonzales and two women -- driver Maryalice Bonilla, 23, and Maria Narvaez-Olmo, 35, also of Allentown, Pa., -- were charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and receiving stolen property, police said.

Police recovered the woman's $87 and her cell phone, but her purse, credit cards and IDs were not found, the woman said this afternoon.

"The police reacted very quickly and did an awesome job," the victim said in a phone interview. "We were lucky that the men didn't turn off the cell phone."

The victim, who moved to Jersey City from Georgia eight years ago, has a different view after the robbery.

"I'm never going to walk on the streets alone at night again," she said, noting that until last night she has always felt safe in the Downtown area.

Why is it believed that Downtown voters will decide the fate of this race? Where can I find the stats on how many registered voters in each ward voted in 2009?


Historically blacks have always decided the race here in Jersey City, but this year downtown has the opportunity to decide this race because the black vote is split in three ways this election season with Walker, Fulop and Healy.

If everyone that is registered to vote downtown actually went out and voted Fulop would win in a landslide.

However the reality is most downtown people are not invested and many are renters so its unlikely they will show up. I wont be surprised if Healy wins again or they may be a run off. I want Fulop to win,but I don't think he can if all the register downtown voters don't show up. Here in ward A people own and they show up in huge numbers to the polls.

Tyler, are you saying that you or someone else is keeping tabs on the color of voters skin and that Ward A actually decides the vote because a greater number of voters in that ward, who happen to be owner occpants, come out and vote, more so than in other wards?

Yes, that is exactly what I am saying, Ward A which is 39% Black, 25% white and 15% Asian has more of a history of voting because they own. Ward F as well which is 89% black.

If you are not paying property taxes why the F would you care about JC politics. I know when I lived downtown and rented I never even paid JC politics any attention as most renters who do not participate on jclist do.

West Side ? Lot on Claremont Ave & West Side Ave $2.30/DAY or $46/MONTH ? Open 24hr/7day ? No Staff Present - Vending Machines Only. Weekends are now free for all Park & Ride Lots in Hudson County
