If you want to go with Cathedral Hall and the event is in the winter, make sure they've fixed their heating system. Earlier this year I attended an event in the spring and their furnace had broken so it was COLD inside.

I've made the trip before from Bay Ridge to JC a few years ago. Absolutely use the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. It's more expensive but by far the shortest route. It's worth the money to decrease the stress and time on the roads in traffic.

That's great to hear! I almost don't care what kind of restaurant it is, any new option on the Northern side of HP would be great!


Huh? This restaurant would be on the southeast corner of Erie and Pavonia. Across from the school. Not at all the "Northern side of HP".


Have you looked at Hamilton Park on a map? Maybe one with a compass on it. Do you consider 10th the south side of HP? What streets would you consider to be on the Northern half of HP?

Out of five weather models:

4 show a Cat 2 hurricane making landfall between N. Carolina and Virginia. It just becomes a rain event for us. Down south (Carolinas) though, some areas will get 20+ inches of rain.

The one outlier is the European model that even after the last update, still shows the hurricane banking to the east and going out to sea.

The pessimist in me thinks, "what if the actual course is something in the middle, bringing to storm right to us?" Models update again late this evening. Below is one model that represents pretty much what the majority shows (GFS has the storm making land farther south though). The second is the Euro.

Yeah, I have access to super-fresh quality tuna for $17/lb. Patagonian toothfish, aka chilean sea bass for $19/lb. These are premium species; cod is not. We shall see about his prices and quality. I hope he can be competitive.


Kudos to them for charging $17/lb for cod if that's accurate. That's a reasonable if not cheap price for fresh,responsibly sourced atlantic cod. The cod supply is f**ked in relation to historical levels. When you buy random supermarket cod for 8.99/lb, chances are you're supporting a part of the industry that would catch every last fish in the sea by any means necessary, current and future stocks and bycatch be damned. Atlantic cod is one of the most overfished species out there. Do yourselves and your children and their children a favor-eat sustainably sourced cod and other fish. Pay a little more. It costs more to bring fish to market when you target a specific species and consciously decide not to catch every last fish out there. Or learn what else is sustainable. There are plenty of reasonanly priced options. Eat previously frozen fish-pacific cod is sustainable and delicious. Or eat something else. I love fish , probably more than most(I'm no Troy McClure though), but I've sworn off delicious, delicious toro and many other species. The technology used to hunt these fish is just way too advanced, way beyond sporting, and it's got to slow down. Don't be an entitled, cheap, consumer. Do 2 minutes of research on what's sustainable and what it costs, open your mind to other species, consider frozen fish. I'm a fisherman by the way.


Here here!

Hopefully it's priced right where it's sustainable for the store and the ethical fishermen. That's all we can ask for.

How is his fish?

If super fresh then I will definitely be a customer (and a good one at that).



I've only bought fish from their stand at the market once but it was very good. I bought a really thick piece of cod loin did a high temp roast with a citrus, dill butter. Certainly wasn't cheap ($17/lb) but it was good.

I wonder how feasible it would be to build out the waterfront on pilings in a couple places, to create parkland/green open space. I would think that it is in fact feasible, but I'm sure it's too costly to make it a reality. But it would be nice to see some proposals that address this.


It took Hoboken 10 years to finally get their park open and even them shoddy construction shut it down almost right away.

Running like an idiot? Not sure what that means.

I run on the side walk, using crosswalks. The area where I live has a lot of blind corners and asshole drivers don't stop at STOP signs. How is that question of my competence you troll?

I used to do that run all the time without issue of personal safety.

The reason I stopped doing it was that people don't stop at stop signs so I was hit by cars at least 6 times over a 2 month period. That's what scared me and stops me from running DT early in the morning.

Start at Doughboy for a cocktail
Raval for another cocktail and a few tapas
Third and Vine for some wine, cheeses/meats
Talde for dinner (make sure you get the crab fried rice) and a night cap downstairs if you can get down there

Yeh, looks like 10th is going to be closed for the foreseeable future.

I find it interesting that there was absolutely no warning ahead of time that this would be happening. Usually they will have some sort of notification or signage on the street alerting drivers of the impending changes. I didn't see anything of the kind leading up to this closure. Did I miss something?

Nothing wrong with saying something positive. But, there is a difference between positivism and accuracy.

As bill points out, other established restaurants right here in JC see the same product for less, and another (Lighthouse) for slightly more, and I know that Lighthouse is a great place. It's nice, it's upscale and I would gladly pay more for the same product while sitting at their very nice bar while listening to some piano (if someone is playing) while taking in the scene.


Where is said Lighthouse....

But, you must admit that even 2 farm-related stands (out of what? 12 or 15 spots?) does not constitute a FARMERS market.


I agree 100%, I wish more actual farm were represented. It's certainly not for a lack of space. I wonder if farms just find it worth the time/movie to set up shop in Hamilton Park.

He's a dark skinned man with very short/bald cut, thin, about 5'8 wearing jeans a an olive shirt that has the word "Respect" on the back.

Don't leave any valuables within view in your car. We just reported it to the police along with another witness that works for Cordero.
