For a while it had a spray painted sign saying opening in May 2017. "Nope," I thought.

It's all clear of snow.

You'll need to go around the Hoboken train station, since the path right through the middle has been blocked since the train accident, but it's only a few more steps.

Hero69, I like about this place, too. I don't get all the posts whining about prices and low-cost ham. ShopRite is a few blocks away. Go there for basics. Sprout is aiming to provide a boutique food experience with brands you don't find everywhere. It's not perfect, but it's a good store, it's good for the neighborhood, and I think it will get better over time.

They aren't closing because they were ready to retire. They're closing because the rent went up too high.

I absolutely never read her posts. I see that big gold box and I keep scrolling. Is she a nut? Is she delusional? Does she just want attention? Don't care. There aren't enough hours in the day.

Re: How streaming TV, movies is now possible with a Jersey City Library card

Home away from home


I tried it this weekend. It's easy and simple. The selection is limited, of course, but it's not bad. The Hoopla app offers lots of movies, TV shows, audiobooks, e-books, comics, and albums, while the Zinio app offers a decent amount of current magazines. Getting set up and checking out materials takes minutes. I like that you can download videos for offline viewing. Netflix doesn't offer that.

The reading experience is better on a tablet, but both work on phones, as well.

The article says 200 people showed up for the demonstrations. I think that is the most people I have ever seen in the park outside of major holidays, such as the 4th of July. Even on weekends, you would be hard pressed a group of 200 people, outside of tourists making their way to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.


You should go more often. On weekends when the weather is nice, there are far more people than that in the park. Check the playground and the picnic areas. Check the kite-flying fields and the 9/11 memorial. You'll count more than 200 in no time.

The most beautiful houses in town are in Greenville. Once you no longer risk being killed for walking down the street in broad daylight, it's going to be a pretty nice place.

That's $25,000 for new sod and $25,000 so they don't complain about having to buy $25,000 in new sod.

Re: Jersey City Mayor Seeks to Limit Chain Stores Downtown
#16
Home away from home
Home away from home


I can't believe what I'm reading here. Do that many people really want chain stores?

When I moved to NYC in the early 90s, it was full of independent shops. Now, every block has a bank and a massive drug store.

As JC gentrifies, Fulop wants it to keep its own special feel. Fulop's proposal is good for downtown and pro-small business.

Jersey City used to compare itself to Hoboken. Now, it compares itself to Brooklyn. You're right, OP, the moniker "sixth borough" is awful for all the reasons you gave.

It's not as bad as "Chilltown," but it's bad.

I can't tell you how much this logic annoys me. Using your iPhone on the street in JC at 12:35AM isn't analogous to an attempted rape. It's analogous to leaving your door wide open when you leave your house.

Take sensible precautions to protect your property. In JC, that means not using a phone outside after dark. Doing so attracts thieves and makes the user less perceptive to what's going on around him or her.

Re: Running in Snowy JC: Waterfront or LSP?
#22

Home away from home


Having run both areas lately, I have to differ. LSP has not been plowed well, so limited trails are open. The only time this winter the pedestrian bridge was shoveled was before the Super Bowl kick-off concert. Worse, there are huge puddles everywhere. Practically ponds. LSP has terrible drainage, and the trails aren't banked correctly so they puddle-up easily. Your shoes will be soaked.

The waterfront is the only part of town I've seen that's shoveled well. Running there right now is clear and easy.

just checked this place out a bit, they have a nice selection in a pretty limited space and extra credit for grouping a whole shelf of my beloved NYRB imprint together.

but in case there was any doubt, books are all list price here, so essentially 2 for the price of 3 or 3 for the price of 4 compared to Amazon. I don't understand how that business model can possibly work in this current climate, but good luck to them.


Take this with a grain of salt. Estrecs rarely leaves the house and his "girlfriend" is a long pillow with a picture of a Japanese schoolgirl on it.

hopefully I can ask this without being jumped on, but why exactly? why are bookstores necessary in a world where Amazon can get whatever you want to you within a day or two at a presumably cheaper price than you'd pay at Word or any other bookstore?

this is a genuine question from a fairly big reader, I really don't get it.


You can buy groceries online, often for cheaper. Do you understand why it's good for neighborhoods to have grocery stores? You can watch live concerts online, often for free. Do you understand why it's good for neighborhoods to have music venues?

When I moved to downtown JC, it didn't have all the basic shops a neighborhood should have. Now it has that and more -- like a burgeoning restaurant scene. The next step in the transformation of downtown is cultural institutions. Word is a fantastic step in that direction. It's a well-curated shop where neighbors can get together and browse or have a cup of coffee. Soon, it will begin holding readings, signings, and other events. It's a place for art and ideas, and I love that. Do you want another bank or nail salon?

I didn't say it was the cheapest place in the world to buy books, I said it's important to our neighborhood. I will probably never convince the very hip Erstrecs, who will continue to save a few dollars by buying online, but I hope the rest of use will see what a good business this is for our neighborhood and will support it.

I was there, too, and made a little purchase to support them. Impressed by the selection and by the number of people who came out. Let's give Word regular business, because it's a fantastic addition to the neighborhood.
