Re: Shutting Down Downtown on a Saturday

The turnpike was also down to one lane after exit 14c due to construction so many people were exiting the turnpike and going through jc to get to the tunnel yesterday. I saw all of the equipment there again today on my way to work so I'm guessing that will cause more traffic through downtown today too.

I think you missed my point. When you go to Brian there are no appointments at all and you just have to go and wait in line, depending what time you go there can be like 10 people in front of you. It's different then going to an office where you are scheduled and may have to wait briefly.

I want to restart this thread. I'm having a lot of neck issues and need a chiropractor. I've been to Brian before and he is great but I want to be able to go to someone that I can make an appointment with and not have to wait. Does anyone have a different chiropractor recommendation near downtown area??

Anyone have any experience with the car inspection station in secaucus?

Just bought a used car in ny state and I have to get my car inspected. Just wondering if the wait times are crazy or if it's not too bad during the day. I'm trying to go Friday day, possibly morning.

just bought a used car today and it desperately needs to be detailed in the interior only immediately. the dealership was supposed to clean it but they did a terrible job. there's still a french fry under my driver's seat. any recommendations for a place that is in the area, is good, is open tomorrow, and might be able to take someone on short notice?? i'm super grossed out and don't want to have to wait to get this done.

We moved here from Astoria a couple of years ago and used Olga movers from the city. We were pretty happy with them. My fiancé used them before for a move from Brooklyn to Astoria also, and we have a friend that has used them more than once. Haven't had any issues with them.

Activities for kids??

Have family coming to visit in a couple of weeks on a Tuesday and Wednesday, and they have small children (6, 4, and 2). I'm wondering if there are any activities in the areas of downtown and near the water that would be fun for kids that small? We were planning on taking the ferry one day to the city for lunch. Any other suggestions?

Anyone ever order an ice cream cake from torico's? Just wondering how it compares to like a carvel cake? I'm sure better in quality but I'm wondering if close in taste? I bought a carvel cake as a birthday cake for a non-dessert eating person last year and I know he was super happy with it but it's hard to get to a carvel and torico's is closer and I would be super happy to give them business instead. I'm just wondering if he'll be happy with it.

I know you hate this place -- but is it really because you live over it? I remember you going after their outside seating too... see link...

http://jclist.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=380155





Nope! Both times I ate there were well before the outside seating showed up. I was super excited for them to open. I mean, i don't even have to leave the building to go there, so in winter months how convenient is that. But it's still not worth it! The food is just okay to me, and the service is awful. I would rather brave the cold and snow than eat there, which is still very unfortunate. I wish it was better. Also, in my day to day living in the building I have no interaction with that business so it's not just because I live in the building. My complaint about the outside seating was because people could not get around at that corner. I had to stop to let people pass as a single person. I thought about all the people that have to get through there with strollers or wheelchairs and I was very upset about that. But I've also complained at the school across the street for people parking in the crosswalks to pick up their kids. It's a dangerous corner all around and I am always worried that people are going to get hurt at it. If two people tried to walk through the way the seating was one person would get pushed into the street and I didn't want to see that happen.

I know, right. When I want brunch, I go to this underground warehouse in Bayonne. Ask for Little Tony, and when he shows up, sock him in the gut as hard as you can to prove that you're real enough for his not-at-all-phony Eggs Benedict. If you want a Mimosa with your egg white frittata, you're going to have to arm-wrestle Ivan for the privilege - you probably won't win, but as long as you give a good effort, he'll be glad to mix up some of his street Champagne and orange juice for you authentically.

In all seriousness, though, I just had a really good brunch at Union Republic. Other than being slightly out-of-the-way, not sure why the place isn't more crowded.



As for Union republic, I live in this building and we were super excited for them to go in but the two times I've gone it was nothing but problems. One of the times was brunch on a Sunday morning at 11 am. They ran out of orange juice and French toast (one of the only vegetarian options they have). The other time was at night and they were super rude about serving drinks. It just has never been worth the trouble and I live there! I think there are much better places to go for brunch. Unfortunately.

I've been hearing it too and I'm on 3rd & Newark but I face 4th. Super loud and late at night. I recently saw a post somewhere about how fireworks can effect people with PTSD including veterans.

I took pictures of it yesterday. The point is not about how it compares to other outdoor seating. The point is that this is a very busy area and they have certainly taken it upon themselves to leave the most minimal walking space possible for people to walk through. There is a school across the street and people walk with their children and strollers through there constantly. It's not a safe corner to begin with but this adds to that.

Outside seating regulations?
#19
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Does anyone know what the outside seating regulations are? Like how much of the sidewalk is allowed to be taken up? And who to complain to if a restaurant is not in compliance with the regulation?

Specifically I am talking about Union Republic. Their new outside seating leaves only room for one person to pass at a time and their plants hang into that space as well, making it even harder to pass through. I'm all for outside seating but at the same time the sidewalk still needs to be functional. We all have to be able to coexist.

I agree bike_lane! And we're now also dealing with that at Union republic. You can now only fit one person walking on that sidewalk. It's ridiculous! Talk about bad neighbors! I appreciate being able to eat outside but at the same time we all have to share these sidewalks and now if someone with a stroller / walker / wheelchair / etc, is trying to get through I'm afraid for them.

we have the stacked one in our apartment. we love it. weekly when we do laundry we say how much we love it. we moved from astoria and had to schlep laundry to a laundromat two blocks away so this was a huge change for us. if you're going from no washer/dryer to having one, having any size will be great, and i am still able to do sets of sheets in it or large blankets without a problem of it fitting. also, we've been here for two years and we've had no problems with it. no maintenance issues or water issues.

We've been using them weekly for about 2 years now. Love the ease of it, especially for living in an apartment and having to walk to the grocery store. I can buy stuff from them that I would never be able to carry home, like cases of water and paper towels. They were amazing when I first started using them and then they went through a little rough patch (not enough to stop using them) but they seem to be much better again. I rarely have issues with produce being bad or not what I wanted. I did recently have an issue with packaged cheese (Applegate slices) that were very obviously moldy but they corrected it. They are very good with any issues that do come up. They will give you a credit or try to get the item to you if they can. They are also good about delivering in the nasty weather that we have had too. If you have something scheduled for delivery they will still try to get it to you. I recommend them for sure.

The only reason Yvonne is even posting this is because Abbey is trying to make this out to be a Fulop thing, when it is really just another small piece of the long Abbey's story. Ask him about his servers lighting up hookahs in the back room with their mouths and then sending the hookah out to customers without any regard to sterilization or sanitation. Ask him about his sidewalk cafe and why it violates the city ordinance by taking up far more than half the sidewalk.



So right! Those sidewalk tables take up so much space only one person can fit around them on the sidewalk. It's nuts. As a neighbor I also don't appreciate all of the liter and stuff that accumulates there. Their garbage cans are always blowing stuff out of them and broken bottles are always in the street right there. No one ever cleans it up. So in the video when he is talking about this is where he lives I'm thinking then take care of it better!

We loved this pizza but had to stop ordering from here last year because of the issues with delivery. We order pizza usually once a week and our average wait times from them were 2 hours. I have a lot of stomach issues and can not risk waiting that long to eat. The delivery guys were usually apologetic but when we would call there seemed to be indifference about having to wait two hours for food. It was very eye-opening for us.

I did look into those but I'm really not having a traditional wedding so those places didn't really work. I'm more into the idea of an empty space and having caterers come in. I'm also not trying to spend a lot of money on this event and those places are pricey. They are beautiful though :)

Does anyone know of a hall/rental space/event space near downtown to rent for a sort of wedding, more like a large party?

Re: Isn't enough space' on street, so park in garages

I also want to make the point that not everyone with a car here is using it as a luxury. I'm from nj, have a master's degree, and a license in this state to practice my profession. My boyfriend, when I met him, was living in Astoria and working in manhattan. I tried commuting to nj from Astoria for work for four months and had to give it up because it was too many hours commuting per day. My professional license prevents me from working in nyc. So I am working here and he is working there. Jersey city is our compromise. I work in Bergen county which is not easily accessible through public transportation so I have a car. It's not an item I only using on weekends or keep because I'm fancy. I use it daily and this is the only way our life together works.

I think I probably would be denied if there were enough spaces for each apartment (4 floors, with 12 apartments per floor and we only have 5 spots total is weird) and I made the decision to not pay for it, but I'm not positive on that. I did have to bring my lease down to the parking authority to prove that I do not have a spot available to me. As a car owner I would love to have a spot (street parking is not really ideal with accidents and break-ins) but I also agree that it has to be something that is affordable to people too.
