We had a wonderful meal last night at the restaurant--our favorite home style Italian place to eat.
Sadly, the place was practically empty. I hope that this was due to the horrific traffic on Grand Street due to construction or street work I guess. Hopefully, that's all it was because the restaurant is an old style gem.

Sell and move while you can. It's not going to get better regardless of how many trendy restaurants
pop up.

Re: Video:beach replenishment in Seaside Park this summer

In essence, abuse of the beachgoers and vacationers by uncaring workers circumventing safety concerns
while moving equipment for beach replenishment a few blocks down.

The police were called down, but didn't intervene. Until we called OSHA and the corporate people of the contracters we were daily at the mercy of what you see in the video and worse.

Initially all of this movement took place at night, but then the workers decided to short cut the process--public be damned.

Corporate people were there in record time with the threat of the newspapers and OSHA facing them and things turned around quickly.

It was a battle every day until we contacted OSHA and the company.

The thread on NextDoor about this subject is so demoralizing... simply put, a bunch of old timers lamenting the "good old days" of surface street lots, and being able to drive somewhere and park right in front. Our city will never progress or evolve into a world class city as long as we have so many people holding on to antiquated ideas.


Antiquated ideas or memories of better times?

A huge piece of equipment carrying a tank of combustible diesel fuel just went by us on a beach crowded with people.

What a warm, fuzzy feeling that gave everyone. And there are a few more tanks still to go.

I'm down in the Seaside Park area and equipment is accumulating for replenishment in areas that weren't supposed to be done until after the summer ended. They're in Seaside Heights right now.

If you have a rental scheduled for the coming weeks, better check into it.

Well, at least we've got a hundred marijuana stores opening soon with a projected billion in taxes generating. That should help the financing of government somewhat.


I truly hope that last line was an attempt at sarcasm. New Jersey will not be seeing a windfall of billions due to legalized weed any time soon, or ever. The way things are playing out, it seems like NYS will beat NJ to legalization.


How do I know? I read it in the daily news (to quote an old tune):

DeNiro really went the white trash route with his comment at the Tony's.
Really pretty sad. While Trump is sitting down with Kim, did he need that kind of outburst?

Interesting comment within the first article:

"Critics of the current funding system say Jersey City residents can afford to pay more than they do via the tax levy, which will be $124 million for 2018-19 (the district receives a total of $410 million in state aid)."

That's a frightening assumption, but I guess they're looking at all of the real estate millionaires who've been created since the reval.

Hoo HaH!!

This is similar to what's being done to Amazon in Seattle although for a different reason.
Will Bezos fall for being subjected to this by bringing the Amazon operation to NJ?--I think not.
Plus Murphy is already taxing New Jersey business to grab some of the tax break from Trump's tax policies.
Perfect together ?-- no more in Jersey.

Just wondering as I'm reading these posts: is there a pedestrian plaza being planned anywhere uptown?

Society Hill was built more on landfill than a toxic refuse site, although I do recall the green, blue and purple guys in the dye joints across the way on 440.The chemical industry became really dangerous after WW2, and I think Roosevelt Stadium was built earlier. The shoreline still brings up glass bottles from the thirties and forties. We ate a lotta crabs from the river back in the fifties and I'm still around in good health in my late sixties.
The development will be a smart move for those who get in early. Waterfront property in the Metropolitan Area only gets pricier as time goes by.

Parkman, I'm with you. I have an 82 year old friend who, with his wife, bought a home in 1968, raised their kids & became a beloved neighbor to many.

A home is an emotional thing, sentimental, not always a money-maker as some see it. I realize that this doesn't mesh with today's reality but I just wanted to throw in my two cents.


Way to go Sara. That sounds like Jersey City heart you're speaking with; something that seems to be in short supply amongst the money changers on this forum. It's about home not bucks all the time.

As I follow this story I have to wonder: won't Bezos do his homework on New Jersey with its penchant for politicians and their sycophants having their hands out?
Does anyone wonder what happened to that hundred million Zuckerberg gave to Newark a few years back? It was like a bag of potato chips to the hordes waiting in line for their piece of the pie.
My prediction is that Bezos will bypass New Jersey entirely. Murphy has already grabbed from the companies who got a reduction in the corporate rate.
