Its really interesting how close the margin is on the public question is and also how few votes/low turnout there was on this. I would argue that this is not nearly enough of a public mandate (due to low participation) to merit a switch.


I would argue that people can't complain if they didn't vote.

What a shame for Thirty Acres, I wonder why they don't change back to their original format. This was really the first interesting restaurant in JC.


The restaurant has been full every time I've eaten there since the tasting menu change. When you're serving a 2 hour long menu, you are going to have significant numbers of empty tables early in the night no matter what. No idea why people think that they are struggling.


and they're closing...


LOL! JcDevil's famous last words.

So the majority on this thread was right. Talk about some moron restaurant owners. They figure out a way to take a successful, packed business, and shoot it in the foot.

Who thought converting to an overpriced tasting menu was a good idea?

I totally agree with cars blocking bike lanes is a problem, that's assuming that a cyclist is even using the bike lane.

Bicyclists ignoring traffic laws are a bigger problem.
Double parking should take a second seat to people on bikes running through stop signs and riding on sidewalks, I cannot count on two hands how many times i've almost been in an accident with a cyclist doing both of these things vs. a car parked in the bike lane.

Nobel Prize winning Economist and Yale Economics Professor Robert Shiller:

The Housing Market Still Isn?t Rational

The bottom line is that there is no reason to assume that the real estate market is even close to efficient. You may want to buy a house if you love it and can afford it. But remember that you cannot safely rely on ?comparable sales? to judge that the price is fair. The market isn?t efficient enough for that.

So the consensus is that this place is much better than the Bistro next door?

Yeah, V has no idea what he's talking about with relative appreciations. Gentrification's like when you start a sport or game, you can increase your score tremendously at first, but then you hit a long tail where gain comes much slower. A partially gentrified area has more growth potential than a fully gentrified, in part exactly because it also has risk of loss or poor growth potential. Lafayette and lovely nearby areas like Astor and Monticello and has been breaking investors for decades now with stubborn refusal to get over the hump. I'm sure it's day will come, but that's why the gentrifying game is speculation.

Is the Height's "over the hump" yet? I'm hoping, but my 2004 purchase has not yet definitely risen past purchase price. But "buy and hold" rental investing actually works without appreciation. I calculate over a 9% return on cash for a property that flows no cash with 25% down on a 15 year note. And that's not accounting for depreciation and interest deductions, and rising rents over that time.


Brewster, I'm curious. Do your calculations factor in all costs such as NJ's enormous property taxes and maintenance?

I received a PATH Alert text that new train schedules will be in effect on Sunday going forward. But it does not mention what they are.

Has anyone heard about this? Are they increasing the frequency of trains?

I don't know. It is such a rarity that someone says something dumb at the age of 25. We should certainly hold this against him 20 years later and he should be fired.


Why? What if he takes back the comments now?


Has he?
