They were required a green space and made one. They have their own dog run too.

They closed for a week or two around Easter to do renovations with a sign that said 'closed for the holiday.' At first I heard it was supposed to still remain Presto's or keep most of the menu, but I guess that changed. Opened up with little fanfare. Sad to see Presto's go!

Curious what your primary use for zipcar is and usual length of time. It seems to me if it's around three hours, you might as well do a regular rental at Enterprise since I usually pay <$30/day at the 2nd St location.

For people using the car to haul stuff from one place to another, maybe GoShare moving app?

That's bullshit.

Anybody who has lived on that street can you tell you what a nightmare it was. Anybody claiming racism is doing so because they don't have any valid arguments. I'm happy for my old block.


I lived on the block for five years and outside of cop cars on a handful of occasions, it wasn't particularly worse than any other bar. Lucky 7's , two blocks away, is just as loud and has more people standing outside of it and it doesn't get the flack that Latin Lounge got.

There are two retail spaces under the building. The Morgan Street side will be CVS. There is nothing set for the Greene Street side, but I would bet on a restaurant.

The CVS in Harborside closed so this is needed in that part of the neighborhood.

Charles & Co doesn't have W/D inside the apartment, but they do have central air and gas furnaces which is the bigger money saver vs the electric heat in most of the new buildings. Also bigger closets.

There will eventually be a restaurant as well. They just haven't chosen which one yet.

It's a big range. How much square footage, how many kitchens, how many baths are we talking? What level of trim? What level of appliances?

$60k can be spent on an entire house or an entire kitchen.

+1 on the classic Italian from Romano's - my personal favorite in JC. Vinnie's 3 was my first ever slice of pizza at the age of 2. Rustique also deserves a mention.

If there was a trend of motorists driving against traffic or driving on sidewalks, it would absolutely be worth a post. No one is posting about bikers ignoring traffic signs and lights.

Are we counting JSQ as downtown?

Cause everyone knows after downtown, the next successful neighborhood will be JSQ - just because of it's connection and proximity to NYC.

And since JSQ is at least 5 years from being developed and attracting businesses that will up the rents to where downtown rents are currently positioned, any other neighborhood is at least +5 years away...





I see JSQ in a similar way I see Long Island City - a neighborhood that will have buildings go up because of an easy commute and relatively low rent where no one hangs out or actually enjoys. You'll rest your head there at night but hang out and spend your money in NYC. It just doesn't have a neighborhood feel to it.

The parks are key for the neighborhood. It's a big neighborhood amenity people look for when they're moving. If Lafayette gets just a couple more key businesses, it'll be a true alternative to downtown. I believe in Lafayette more than the Heights personally.

How did they leave the neighborhood high and dry?


Saying they left the neighborhood high and dry pushing it. There were conflicts between the owners and between the owners and the landlord. They go into gory details in this article: http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/ ... t-after-partners-dispute/

I loved MAE and will check out UR.

I'll be interested to see how crowded this place remains after the newness factor wears off. So far everyone I know who tried it agreed it was just missing a little something. The seasoning, or the aging of the beef, or the toasting of the bun.

Their problems are SO easily fixable and I'd be a regular with just a few very simple corrections. I hope they succeed and I hope someone over there checks JC List.

I'll be back in another month or so in hopes they've figured that they need to season their food.
