It is true - cops do move cars - but I really do think there needs to be a real crackdown on bikes on the sidewalk - someone is going to get killed one of these days.

I would be fine with all of Newark Ave being made into a "One Way" street in a westward direction (at least to Brunswick) -
and maybe add an extra wide bike lane & diagonal parking spaces for cars.


really? Killed?
How fast are these rogue cyclists going on the sidewalk?

Actually pretty quick, enough to knock someone down to the ground, especially a senior citizen exiting a store stepping onto the sidewalk. Look both ways before you cross the threshold.


I have seen people knocked to the ground coming out of stores on Newark Avenue. There have recently been deaths in NYC, Washington DC, San Francisco, London and many other cities. See for yourself - click links to read articles.

Sure, people can get killed by a bike, but these are all in the street or roadway. The bike in central park was likely going closer to 35+ (yes, still faster than the posted speed limit) in the road.


So how many cyclists do you see going faster than 5 mph on sidewalks here? Don't get me wrong, I think adults riding on busy sidewalks here look asinine but that's besides my point.

What I love about the "appropriation wars" is there's simply no way for gringos to win. Honesty doesn't get points here, and had they called it Caballeros Taqueria they'd be in deep shit.


Yeah, I see your point.

Don't get me wrong, I don't see any problem with anyone from any other culture, loving and trying to recreate another's food, or even traditions. I just think it should try to be done tastefully.

No one is complaining about Rick Bayless.
And then there's this. These ladies closing is a shame.

"Gringos" is just a little too cheeky and they're trying WAY too hard in the interior / decor.
Fun concept, bad location, horrible name.
That being said, I'm sure they'll do great with the interlopers.

Just because people are willing to pay 2500/mo plus broker fee for a 1br, doesn't mean your ride is safe. Still see lots of street diamonds downtown.

That report is unproven, and in any case it also was reported there was a gap of a few weeks before her paperwork was cleared. All of this was noted before the election, and no-once cared, and still don't.


And if it were European models and not Mexicans picking your fruit, bussing your tables and washing your dishes, you wouldn't care about the current situation either.

In some cases, yes - and the collection efforts are aggressive.

Christie did sign a law last year covering some student debts.

When my little brother passed away in 2002, I remember Gateway wanted me (his executrix and caregiver) to ship back his computer that he had financed. They were very aggressive in their tactics. I told them to basically f off. The computer sits in my closet to this very day.

I don't think it's "deception" if they honestly believe the alternate "reality" that is being fed them.

Today Curbed featured a bland profile of (mostly downtown) JC's best-kept secrets offered up by a Barcade employee who has lived in town for three years.

It's much the same as several other puff pieces in recent years selling the merits of DTJC to the Curbed readership on the other side of the river - certainly nothing offensive in her observations.

Nonetheless, scroll on down to the comment section and take a read of the screed written by "RealJCNative1". Reads like the shrill ranting of the "JC Take it Back" girl that started this thread a few years back. And of course, she's still furious about the "colonizers" taking over her town.

Yawn.



Ugh. "gingerbread delights"
And this is the problem with DT. It attracts the kind of person that would use this turn of phrase.

Holy Christ man. I know you'be been busy trying to figure out the optimal tip-to-tip efficiency for Trump and Putin, but you sound like you're already living in a dictatorship. You speak up against our dear leader, or do something to anger him? Time for your punishment.


You are the one who brought up Macy's and implied that Trump let them down because they are now a failing business.

I explained that they took a controversial political stance and were punished by hardworking Americans (who stopped shopping there) as a result. So things are going just fine.


Wasn't me that brought up Macy's. You're a smart person, I presume, soni know you can't believe everything Trump says. I mean this is a guy who has publicly stated he has never been sick a day in his life, and that he has the greatest immune system. I'm curious what percentage you believe. 50%? 75%?


There is a saying that Trump supporters take him seriously but not literally, while haters take him literally but not seriously.

You illustrated this nicely with the example you just used. I see that quote and his obvious point is that he rarely gets sick/is in good health. I believe this to be true.

Liberals will get one of their partisan "fact checking" websites, such as Politifact (operated by reporters from the Tampa Bay Times, which strongly endorsed Hillary), which will find one time he was sick, and then conclude:LIE!! FOUR PINOCCHIOS!!!!! Without really discussing his main point (he's never really sick).

Then people like you will read and it will confirm your belief of what a liar Trump is and how stupid his supporters must be to believe him. And people like me will read and say this is just another example of our dishonest media misleading their readers.



This is a great explanation, and might be your best, most helpful post ever. Strong.
