Re: JCIA Garbage Men Tried to Shake Down "Pint" Owner for Booze

Jcuser611, It's not that we don't know this happens everywhere. it's that it's surprising that in this day and age, people still have the balls to do it not thinking they will get caught.

I guess it's because they count on people like you, complacent citizens, who, because "it happens everywhere", think we should let it continue to happen here

You can continue to belong to the Bend over and grip your ankles club, the rest of us won't settle for the status quo.

You get what you expect in life.

Jcdevil, do you not understand how easily noise travels across backyards? Do you understand that anyone can easily see each other when you're in your respective backyards? I enjoy seeing my neighbors when I come outside, i don't want to be looking at strangers while I'm gardening.

And no im not to entitled one, I'm not the one asking for laws to be changed at whim so I can get what I want.

I'm done arguing with you.

Let's say I get one and then somebody would start crying that we live in a city and they deserve access to that as well.

Because entitled millennials and their "shared economy" don't want to do an honest day's work, but rather "share" the fruits of my hard labor.

Where does it end? I have no objection to sidewalk cafes, but our backyards should be off limits to commercial use.

My backyard is my oasis from all "vibrant city life" that now surrounds us. I don't want to see douchebags sipping coffee and staring at a lap top when I come out to my yard.

If you want to lounge in a backyard, get your own. If you can't afford one, move to the burbs, I hear they don't come at a premium over there.

Hi all,

Yes it has happened recently (10/31- 8:45 PM) on 4th between Manila and Erie:


It happened to me. I was taking a break from moving my things from one rented room to another (only 5 houses away from each other) and received an important text. I bypassed returning to my old room and walked down 4th. I turned around (still texting) and was headed back toward Manila when my arm and hand were hit hard by an attacker who came from behind.


There were two teens, one stayed a few feet back while the other one bent down to get my phone, which had flown a couple of feet out of my hand. As he stood back up I grabbed him by his quilted navy-blue vest at the arm hole. I was already shouting at him to give me my phone back. He hit me in the arm to make me let go, broke loose, and followed his friend, who had already started running, down 4th toward Erie.

They ran down Erie toward 5th with me in pursuit---screaming at the top of my lungs for someone to stop them. They ran by the convenience store at the corner of 5th and Erie and headed east up 5th to the daycare center. I chased them until I got to the corner of 5th and Manila, where a few good samaritans had joined the chase, but these kids were fast and seemed to already have their route thought out?disappeared into the corridor that leads to the daycare center, took a right and probably went out on Marin.

And, if any of the wonderful people who tried to help me read this: THANK YOU!

I was shaken, mildly bruised and in shock. because i have lived on Manila and walked in the area for over a year. I usually don't text while walking and recognize this vulnerable behavior as just that. However, I no longer feel safe and am constantly looking over my shoulder and am easily startled when I hear footsteps approaching from behind.

Since that night, I have spoken to eight women who I've seen walking after sunset with their phones out, and told them what happened so they would be forewarned.

I spent over an hour with the JC police that night, who actually detained two kids off the Light Rail at Liberty State Park stop, but I could not positively ID them.

To all. Just be careful. do not walk with phones out at night, or find an escort or walking buddy or use Manila, which, at this point I think is safer than Erie, better lit and a bit less deserted, usually.


I'm sorry this happened to you. I'm glad people were there to help. The bodega people also came out the night I witnessed the other attack, must be a weekly occurrence for them.

No, it wasn't reported anywhere. I only know about it because I was walking about half a block in front on the lady when she was attacked. I've heard nothing about it so I figured I would post to warn people. Seems us ladies are walking around with a false sense of security given how often this happens and is never reported anywhere. Do not walk distracted, walk with purpose and with all your senses in alert.Quote:

There was a mugging on Erie and the embankment on Thursday the 21st at 8:30 pm. Two short black kids punched a woman on the face and knocked her down, ran off with her phone towards Manila on 5th. Cops were there within 5 minutes, have there been other recent instances?

Re: Top Ten Reasons to Vote for Jerramiah Healy

I happened to be at Hard Grove Cafe, sitting at the bar, during one of the many, many fundraisers the owners there have held for Healy (what's in it for them, I don't know, but Im sure there's something he's dangling in front of their noses).

I saw Healy tip the bartender FIVE DOLLARS after numerous hours and numerous drinks before he went to make an ass of himself at the debate held downtown.

I also saw the candidate for ward F, tell one of his ex employess who now works at Hard Grove that he had no idea how he ended up on Healy's ticket, when the guy asked him what the hell he was doing getting involved in politics in JC.

Nice team Jerry.

This place is awesome, excellent service, great food and great vibe. Between them and the place on Morris I've got all my Mexican needs covered.
I put up with Taqueria's rudeness because we had no other choices in downtown JC but now that we do Id rather spend my money where people actually know what Hospitality means.

Re: Catholic Church Recommendations in Downtown JC?

Sorry Felix, but if we were all interested in keeping with catholic tradition, no one would be having sex outside of marriage, no one would be getting divorced and no one would be eating red meat on Friday.

Find a church you like and stick with it, who cares if its not on your block, at least you're giving the catholic faith a chance.

This place Is the shit, their tacos may not be as great as taquerias but all their other plates are outstanding! Their steak chilaquiles are AMAZING, and the nachos are what nachos should taste and be like everywhere else.

Whatever happened to the sirens they tested a couple of summers ago, on Columbus and Marin? Had we known the water was coming, five minutes before it invaded our block on Wayne, we could have helped our downstairs neighbors move more things upstairs and turned the building electricity off before the water did it for us amidst explosions, sparks and threat of fire. THANKS HEALY FOR NOTHING, A BIG EFF YOU TO YOU
