I know you asked specifically for JC, but if you can travel, I have taken old mantel clocks to the clock shop on Rt. 71 in Avon.

And the Psychedelic Furs are not going on until late, people! Jump on the PATH at Grove and jump off at JSQ. Support old things where you live.

Come to the JCLC Awards and see what's happening with our past!

Did we mention there's a bar?

And for traffic supposedly backed up on Newark all the way to Monteleone's, we have Monteleone's coming to us. Those cream puffs go fast.

Re: suede dry cleaning?

Quick update: I took the skirt to Leather Spa on John Street and the person at the counter looked at it, grimaced, and said he'd try something. He took it in the back and came out a few minutes later with the ink much lighter but not gone. The area was lighter but he said it'd darken and he'd put conditioner on it, and that there's very little to be done with ink and suede. I asked the charge, and he said there wasn't any. I consider myself pretty lucky.

Thanks for the suggestions and recommendations.

Hi, I got ink on the front of a suede skirt. I go to Golden Cleaners for everything but they couldn't do this.

Suggestions for a place to go? I could also try Hoboken or Tribeca or the Financial District as on the way to work.

Thank you

John has not led the tour for the last three years, though we imagine he will take a more active part again shortly. He has been and remains essential to JCLC.

We've been lucky to have Patrick Shahloub from NJCU join us. He's a fantastic resource.

Lafayette History Tour

Lafayette History Tour
Sunday, May 15th at 11am

The history of Lafayette is largely untold. While Washington Irving’s legendary visit to the Van Horne’s “House of the Four Chimneys” is immortalized in such classics as “A History of New York” and “Wolfert’s Roost,” Lafayette remains largely forgotten in the annals of Jersey City history. How can a nearly 400-year-old neighborhood remain so overlooked by scholars?

As we walk through the streets of Lafayette under the shadows of landmarks past and present, its fascinating origins emerge, revealing themselves in bricks and cornerstones, steeples and smokestacks, underground waterways. The voices of centuries-old inhabitants emerge, reminding us about transatlantic voyages, Indian villages, ancient trails, Dutch settlements, British Colonials, African-American burial grounds, railroads, ferries, industries, local legends.

Continuing onward, observing more, on our tour we become the historian, capturing what had come before, writing what has never been written, sharing our knowledge.

Join Jennifer Furlong, Kevin Berland, and Rebecca Shapiro on a fascinating tour and discussion of Lafayette’s rich history.

Please share with others!

Earl Morgan | For The Jersey Journal

Tensions are mounting between long-time residents and newcomers moving into predominantly black Jersey City neighborhoods, where small power struggles are being waged.

At the same time, there seems to be an aggressive campaign by members of the Hasidic Jewish community to buy property.

On the first front, several neighborhood associations say they are fending off efforts by newbies in their neighborhoods attempting, or even "conspiring," to grab the reigns of leadership of their organizations or to form their own associations.

All this makes you want to utter Rodney King's plea, "Can't we all just get along?"

And this from the end of the article:

"I asked the rabbi if he'd noticed that very few Jewish people are seen on MLK Drive."

I love how Earl Morgan knows what Jews "look" like.

OMG, they're going to sell everything in Borough Park, making a killing, and move en mass to Greenville! Finally, we'll have a real kosher deli!


I hope they don't try to do what was done in upstate NY a few years ago. A group of Hasidic Jews bought homes in a small town and to declared their homes houses of worship taking their properties off the tax rolls. This increased the tax burden on the other residents of the town.
i wonder if society should be subsidizing religion; i can see where religious organizations that provide some benefit to society (education, charity care) deserve a subsidy, but a congregation of 5 or 10?


Wow. I hope a bunch of people who've "heard" somebody say something to someone else don't get all anti-Semitic because a couple of families who are less than 6% of the New Jersey population are moving in. Soon, we'll be hearing stories about "the Jews" again, just like we used to hear stories about "the blacks." Nice.

Re: Thinking about renting on Monitor Street Bergen / Lafayette

I don't have a lot more to add to what the others have said (and I recognize some as my neighbors). We've been here six years and have been very happy. The neighbors are nice, people are friendly, and helpful. I work in the city and have felt fine walking home from the light rail to Pacific after 10 pm, though if I feel indulgent I'll take a cab from Grove ($7). One thing that I like is that I know more people here than I ever did when I lived downtown, even though I'd run into people I recognized. There's a sense of community here and less transience. It is true that we lack the sorts of amenities that other neighborhoods have, but I like the people and the vibe and it's easy enough to get elsewhere in the city or have something delivered if you're not a driver.

It seems to me it depends on the character of the bar, and the clientele they are hoping to attract.

An upscale/stylish lounge, with good food and perhaps outdoor café seating in nice weather would probably be an asset to the neighborhood. A quality establishment would bring life to the streetscape, and give both newcomers as well as more established residents who genuinely care about the neighborhood a place to meet, as well as a visible sign of an urban neighborhood being on the rise - a social amenity. If it had really good music, say, or a distinctive menu, it could bring people from outside of the neighborhood, helping improve the areas image.

It seems the community is opposed to this as they are expecting the worst. I don't live there, so I don't know. I do know in the Heights there were a lot more low-class establishments when I moved in 7 years ago; 2 have closed and been replaced with places that draw in a bigger section of new arrivals in the neighborhood, and enhance the quality of Palisade Avenue. Others are under new management, and get good reviews for their food, music, etc. So if there is change in the air in the neighborhood to capitalize on, bars can work.


I was at the Planning Board meeting when the community was there and when this came up prior to the city council vote. The people from Greenville were not objecting to liquor being served per se *at all* and nor were they against progress, like some people here are insinuating; rather, they were objecting to language they had repeatedly questioned in the Redevelopment Plan, which allowed "bars" and "nightclubs." They had no problem with restaurants that serve liquor, BYOB restaurants, or cafes.

The planners, in particular one of them, however, were adamant that they believed such establishments as "bars" and "nightclubs" would eventually bring desirable commerce to the neighborhood--over and over, despite repeated objections. They eventually agreed to suggest different language--and this only with the prodding of Boggiano. Boggiano stated more than once that the Plan could be amended later to include these types of places but if the community wanted the exclude them, they had the right to revisit the issue later.

I've gone to Daniel's based on other people's recommendations and St John's (not downtown but you someone might want to know the owner is a bit grabby and makes icky comments), and Golden Cleaners.

Golden Cleaners is a bit pricey but in the decade I've gone there they've been wonderful and nothing has ever been altered poorly.
