As someone who worked at LCCS for 10 years until June 2016, I can not think of a time when that was true at all.

Pre K 3 info

Hello Everyone- I am looking for information about the various PreK-3 programs, especially those in the Heights. Perhaps there is already a thread about this topic- just point me in the right direction.

If not, is camping out for Concordia worth it? How about Parkside near Pershing Field?

My neighbors would be grateful for any insight you can offer. Thanks so much.

Have a great day.

June is your month!

Have you been thinking about adopting a dog or cat? Nothing beats the heat better than adding some cat or dog fur to your home. OK, maybe a giant AC and a frosty beverage would work a little better, but that air conditioner is USELESS during the winter.

During the month of June, all dogs over 40 pounds and all adult cats will have their adoption fees waived to qualified adopters. June is one of the busiest months at Liberty Humane Society, Jersey City's municipal shelter. If you adopt a pet, you are saving a life! If this is not a good time for you to adopt personally, spread the word!

Visit www.libertyhumane.org to learn a bit about some of the awesome animals looking for homes!

SOUP! SOUP! SOUP! SOUP!

Just a reminder that our annual Soup Swap will be taking place on Sunday Jan. 24th- just 2 weeks away. Start researching some new recipes you have been interested in, or start begging your grandmother for her secret ingredient for that chicken noodle soup sure to cure any sickness!

If you are planning on coming, please RSVP to jcsoupswap@gmail.com so I have an idea of how many people will be there.

Thanks- and spread the word!!! Invite two friends!

Re: Safe to live in the Heights (Concord & St. Paul's)?

I have lived 3.5 blocks west of that for 11 years and have never felt unsafe. (I'm a woman if that matters...) There is Supremo Supermarket a few blocks down Palisade Ave- they actually give free rides home in their delivery van if you ask! Another easy option is to hop on a dollar van to the Light Rail elevator down to Shoprite in Hoboken...or good old Amazon Fresh/Fresh Direct delivered right to your door!

Up on Central Avenue are a few restaurants worth checking out- favorites include Renato's (Italian) and I like 5 de Mayo for Mexican. Apparently there is a new rumor that Wonder Bagels will open up there too, but perhaps that is in line with the Hoboken/Trader Joe's thing...

All in all, I say do it! I enjoy calling this neighborhood home and you sure can't beat the prices!

Belmont and Kennedy- the "u" street. It is county property and no one ever has to worry about street cleaning there. You can drive up and hang out waiting for a spot, then uber home for $10.

Have you contacted Liberty Humane Society? Any animals brought in by Jersey City Animal Control are brought there. I would recommend emailing them a picture of MOnty with as many details as possible about time, location, markings etc...

Fingers are crossed for you and Monty. My mom lives on the block so I will forward her the picture!

I use them. Sometimes. The food is always fresh- and their customer service department has been great any time I had an issue. (a cracked container, smooshed loaf of bread...)

My problem is I get trigger happy- clicking and ordering a bunch of stuff. Then it comes and I'm like "What meal do I create with 2 avocados, some chicken salad, a tub of chocolate chip cookie dough and par-baked scones?"

Browse the website- there are some great deals and yummy finds. I always tip the guys- just cause I am a big tipper in general... Let me know what you think!

Liberty Humane Society will be open on Friday from 2-7 and the Saturday and Sunday from 11-4. Please consider adopting a local pet who needs a home.

Re: UBER - car service in Jersey City
#25

Rates have dropped by 20% two times in the last several months. As a customer, I find it awesome. However, that means the amount of money the drivers earn also drops. My boyfriend drives for uber and said the tips are really helpful. He said he doesn't expect them, but even on a local fare if someone gives him a dollar or two, he appreciates it. Last night I took an uber from Communipaw and West Side Ave to my home right off Rt 139 and then into Hoboken. The total fare, including wait time was under $15. Just the trip from my house to Hoboken is usually $12 in a cab. So tipping a few bucks does not negate the cost savings and the convenience factor of not dealing with obnoxious dispatchers and dirty cabs? Priceless, in my humble opinion.

As the weather outside gets more frightful, you know what would be quite delightful? A freezer filled with soup!

Please come to the Jersey City Soup Swap!
Sunday, January 25th.
2-3p.m. at Grace Van Vorst. 39 Erie Street...They have an awesome used book sale going on- so bring soup and some $ to pick up a few good reads!

Make 4-6 quarts of soup and freeze it. Any kind of soup is welcome. We will gather together, introduce ourselves, and then pull numbers out of a hat (or soup bowl) to decide draft order. We will choose soups to take home until all the soup is gone.

This event has been quite successful in the past years and I hope to see many of you there! Prizes will be awarded as well!

If you have any questions, feel free to email jcsoupswap@gmail.com
