They are located at 720 Monroe St. in Hoboken. 5th floor enter on the 8th St. side elevator to their door.
At least you can try the mattress out so it is not sight unseen.

Just adding to my reply: I stopped in there today for the first time in the new Heights location, a bit snug but tolerable. Had my daily espresso fix, not bad and the price was adequate compared to neighboring places but if I linked that with a pastry and including tax it would have cost me $6 bucks...ouch ! When I'm in the mood and can't resist their excellent almond croissants I'll probably indulge myself.

Obviously, you are not their primary target customer.

If the city ordinance required those spaces to be free for its residents, they would not be half empty.


What on earth are you talking about, if they're half empty, that means the units they're attached to and the rents that include them simply mean people aren't bringing them.

As long as the Yvonne and the corrupt neighborhood associations have so much influence on policy, such a thing would never see the light of day, even in an area where it would make sense like Downtown.

They are empty because either they are not deeded or too high of a rental fee. Also as far as the neighborhood associations are concerned I would hope they have a huge influence in what goes on within "their" neighborhood / community.

If they ere hidden in your vehicle perhaps your auto insurance company can compensate you for the monetary loss. Also check your home owner's / rental's insurance policy for coberage as well.

First you should find out if it is a mixed residence such as rentals and owned. It could affect a mortgage approval.

I'd love to see more emphasis on quality of life issues Downtown. I'm tired of stepping around crumbling, weed strewn sidewalks and walking past the same dilapidated buildings and abandoned lots every day. I want the city to start aggressively fining these deadbeat property owners. Hopefully most will just sell to more responsible citizens when their taxes double or triple as a result of the reval.

I'm also tired of the treeless streets and trees being cut down by the city without being replaced. They even leave the stumps in place, so property owners can't replace them on their own dime without having to pay for an expensive removal. If Downtown is going to contribute the lion's share of taxes, Fulop should start outlining policies to address some of these things.

It's quite telling that Healy #2 doesn't have any real policy specifics on his website, just vague one or two sentence platitudes. "I'm not Fulop" might work on people like Yvonne and her neighborhood association NIMBYs, but most people won't be fooled.

Good points, thank you doctor. Now put them to work when the debates are scheduled. These are the questions that should be asked. I want to know what the city is going to do about the potholes ? They are either not filled or are poorly addressed. Makes it hard and dangerous trying to navigate the roads on a bicycle which will result in injury or damages to the bike. I want to know what their action plan is. Hopefully Yvonne will put this on her list when she holds are share of debates. And by the way Nick your plight is dwarfed compared to the Heights equally important but we're dealing with the same ten-fold.

Cops do move the cars out of the way, but for whatever reason, the entitlement attitude prevails here. The rules just don't apply to those drivers, of course! Didn't you know?

I wonder if there is some way to include the stores in this effort. It's not hard to see that the illegal parkers are patrons of just a few of the stores.

In the meantime, a few a-holes continue to impact the rest of us.

Well include Vinnie's Pizza on Kennedy in the Heights. The delivery driver parks on Kennedy in the bus stop off the corner making it hard for cars and bike to turn onto Kennedy from Lincoln. It forces us to turn onto the left lane and conflict with on coming traffic from Kennedy and Lincoln.

It is true - cops do move cars - but I really do think there needs to be a real crackdown on bikes on the sidewalk - someone is going to get killed one of these days.

I would be fine with all of Newark Ave being made into a "One Way" street in a westward direction (at least to Brunswick) -
and maybe add an extra wide bike lane & diagonal parking spaces for cars.


really? Killed?
How fast are these rogue cyclists going on the sidewalk?

Actually pretty quick, enough to knock someone down to the ground, especially a senior citizen exiting a store stepping onto the sidewalk. Look both ways before you cross the threshold.

Yes, of course, because the cars that ignore the "no parking or standing" will totally respect a bike lane.

Revenue for the city, plus if something occurs due to the car being parked in the bike lane I'm sure once it becomes litigious and a financial detriment to the driver it will cure the parking problem.

This is just ridiculous, Newark here is reduced to one lane for 2 way traffic. It's bad enough for cars, but life threatening if you're trying to bike here with the cars swerving into oncoming traffic both ways. The should just give in and make it one way here with parking both sides.

I would go one step better, one-way with parking on only one side and use the other side for a bicycle lane.

Crowded at a few "choke points" but it went off amazingly well. Particularly impressive that this was done as a last minute contingency plan.

Surprised that it could be done or that J.C. actually pulled it off ? I bet this was practiced many times over the years just in case of a sudden change such as that lack of a signature. I'm more surprised that J.C. could pull this off but cannot manage to fill a pothole properly or not fill it at all.

Just looking at the road laden with potholes some with clusters of them make it difficult to walk or bike on them. And when they do fix them they are not tamped down enough to walk or roll over them. This to me is a reason not to give them a second chance.

Re: Jersey City Reservoir Visit

It's a wonderful place to hike, fish, kayak, and explore the ecology of various plant life. There is nothing else like it in J.C. and it is right in our own back yard here in the Heights. The panoramic view on the walking path is equal to the Highline of Manhattan. The hiking paths are secluded enough that you will feel you're in a remote part of Jersey. You could either hike down to the water on the east side of the park or walk in on the ground level at the south entrance on the Jefferson St. side where the fishing area is. The entrance to the hiking area is open on Saturdays from 8 am till 4pm. The fishing entrance is open daily except Sundays.
