Drove by the parking lot opposite city Hall and it was all dug up! Does anyone know what is being built there?

Thank God that disgusting place is gone! I ordered a few times in the beginning but things got bad fast! Maybe the flood waters cleaned the joint. A new Brazilian market is opening in its place. Te owner is spending a lot of $$ to fix it up. Many don't know but the space has a tremendous backyard

Re: Why is pizza so bad in downtown JC?

I live in Downtown JC for about seven years now. When I left Manhattan, I left Pizza behind. No one sees to get it right! I complained to a friend and she sent me to Larry & Joe's on Newark just north of the HS. Their Pie was very good.

However, in Downtown itself, you have La Rustique and Buon Appetito who do a decent job. After that its down hill fast. Stella's the sauce is disgusting. Helen's is run of the mill. Does anyone remember Esperanto's ----NEXT! Two Boots is good but its not your typical pizzeria. Delenio - they like to burn their pie. Carmine's is OK and best of the lot is Paulus Hook Brick Oven Pizza. Razza is good but pricey and the winner is Grande Pizza. The staff is friendly and the pie any pie sucks.

You'll know that the Pizzeria is a good one if you ask for a grandma slice. (a thin layer of dough is stretched into an oiled, square "Sicilian" pan, topped sparingly with shredded mozzarella, crushed uncooked canned tomatoes, chopped garlic and olive oil, and baked until the top bubbles and the bottom is crisp.) If you're handed a triangle slice, send it back!

Happy hunting!

Geohrig's Bakery on Central Ave is Italian owned they make a number of Italian-American goodies. Parking could be a problem!

Does anyone have any updated information on Carolina's Laundromat? The ladies were so helpful and welcomed you with a smile. I never thought it as shady and there is plenty of shady around anyway! The owner also runs the Dixon Mills Deli.

I was amazed last night as every single clothing drop off container was removed from the Metro Plaza Shopping Mall! Does anyone know if they were damaged in the storm? Also does anyone know of any additional containers in the area? Thanks for your help!

Re: Roman Nose on Newark Avenue

As for the \"typical Italo-American slop\", I am an Italo-American so I know too well, what the slop is. Americans thinks Italian food is Spaghetti and meatballs, sausage and Peppers and Baked Ziti topped off with cannolli. That is Italo-American cuisine and I happy that the Roman Nose stayed away from those dishes. I don\'t have to go to a restaurant when I can make this stuff at home. It\'s true that RN serves meatballs but they have become the \"In-food\" these days. It\'s like Polenta, it\'s fashionable to eat Polenta. I\'ve been eating it since I was a kid. Basically it was peasant food.

Our parents and grandparents had to feed a lot kids and that\'s how Italo-American cuisine was born. You won\'t find meatballs in Italy. Chopped meat is not a big item. The same goes for hamburgers & meatloaf. I lived there for a number of years. Good luck trying to make Macaroni & Cheese. Italians don\'t eat Cheddar Cheese!

Thanks for the welcome but I've been living in JC for over seven years. Newark Ave has improved but it's still dismal. I've been to LITM and Skinner's Loft and they are very good. I rarely shop on Newark. The $$ stores are not my scene.

Sunday afternoon my partner and I ventured to Newark Ave and the Roman Nose. We had the Frittata Brunch. RN is a very comfortable place. The staff and the owner were extremely pleasant. Even got to use some of my Italian. Some thought went into the creation of the menu. It stays away from the typical Italo-American slop! We will be back for Dinner! A bright spot on dismal Newark Ave!

Used Books in Jersey City

Does anyone know where I can donate books in Jersey City? I would like to avoid The Salvation Army. The books have been in storage for over five years. Basically novels (hardcover) authors such as Dean Koontz. I do not like to books in the garbage. I appreciate any suggestions.
