This honks.

I have used them the entire time I've been in business. Really don't even know where else to go around here except for Dykes, but you gotta go all the way down into Weehawken for them. So many extra lights. So much extra time.

Damn, man.

I wish them well and hope they make a truckload of money, but selfishly this is kind of a problem.

That's the thing though. If you bring your kid to any doctor's office, it's full of unvaccinated kids. They're not fully vaccinated until they're years old.
If you go to a pediatrician's office, all the kids in the waiting room are at difference phases of the process. Several of them take place over 2 to 3 rounds of shots, and you're not fully immune until the end.

This whole thing depends on everybody buying in and everybody doing it. Just one unvaccinated kid can mess up the whole thing up.

New parent, and I gotta admit that it's pretty terrifying watching somebody stick a needle in your perfectly healthy kid every couple months. You take a healthy baby and expose them to a risk of harm, they scream, the wound from the needle bleeds, and a box gets checked off on a list that is dozens long. It triggers your fight or flight response. You want to punch your doctor, grab your kid, and get the hell out of there.

You know why you don't though?

Because my Grandmother told me what it was like to watch a sibling die of whooping cough. Imagine choking, gasping for life, for 3 months.

Herd immunity only works if we all buy in. The argument that it's an individual choice is not correct. The NJ vaccination schedule takes place over several years, and isn't complete until well after children are allowed to enter daycare and pre-schools.
When you choose not to vaccinate your child, you're also choosing to expose MY child to risk, as your non-vaccinated child can be a carrier and can infect my child who hasn't yet received their vaccines.

OP, I feel you. I really do. It's an incredibly tough choice and it is an absolute fact that one in a million children do have their lives 100% ruined by vaccine allergies. A perfectly healthy child can become a vegetable. It's scary. Hopefully in the future there will be better ways of testing for these reactions.
For now though, you have to admit that one in a million is pretty good odds, especially when you look at the percentages of kids that had polio, measles, whooping cough, etc when our fathers and their fathers were younger.

I'd urge you to revisit the facts and really think about what you're doing, not with your child, but with mine. You're exposing my kid to fatal diseases in an urban environment.

$.02

Good luck with your decision. I understand how tough it can be.

It's unbelievable that anyone ever thought it would be a good idea to allow people to cash out days from 30 years ago at current salary rates. It's a giant retroactive raise.

Another observation to add to my a-holes who throw snow/ice chucks into the plowed street post are the fools who park their cars on an angle sticking out into the street almost blocking the traffic flow. The only good thing is those fools do get fined by having their cars damaged. Driving around this morning I saw 4 cars sticking out into street that had frontend damage. Oh well.


I'm currently doing exactly this. Sorry.

This is as good a place as any I guess...

drivers, when you're trying to get out of an icy spot, it's all about torque. This is not a speed issue. Low gear, most minimal pressure on accelerator possible, rock gently. Spinning the tires is only making it worse.

Re: Jersey City mulls changes to pedestrian plaza to address rowdy bar-goers

Guys, I think you're going a little nuts about this.

The problem: Every Thursday-Saturday there's a couple dozen kids that drink too much, then loiter after the bars close where they then yell a bit, then sometimes break bottles that they sneak out of the bars on their way out.

The solution: Have a cop pass by at last call and shuffle them down the block. That's it. That's the whole problem, solved.

There's kids that stand outside on Erie from last call til about 4, drinking their last call drinks that they snuck out in their coats, then they leave/break the bottles on the street.
Just have a cop come through every 30 minutes from 2:30 until 4 and move them along. Don't do the stupid siren woop woop, because that wakes me up more than the kids talking. Just say, "Hey guys, time to go."
Done. Now you have a pedestrian plaza that thousands enjoy daily, and a flourishing restaurant/bar scene that are enjoyed by thousands nightly.

Shit, I should run for mayor of this dump.

Greg is right.

We're talking about an incredibly small percentage of time that Downtown is a problem, and it's really only a problem for one single block.

The Porta in Asbury has cops posted outside their door, and metal detectors to get in. That's the crowd they draw on weekends.

I mean the problem is right there. We don't need a committee to figure this out. Go to the source of the problem.

I hate to pull the stupid, "I've been living here for blah blah blah" card, but I'll do it anyway...

I've been living here for blah blah blah years and....

the problems on the summer weekends are clear as day. It's a handful of bars that cater to younger out of town kids that get sloppy drunk and make a mess of the place because they don't know any better.

Talde and Porta are the problem on Friday and Saturday. Talde has been so bad with their Thursday-Saturdays that Keyhole has been closing early to avoid the spillover when Talde kicks them out at 1:45, an hour earlier than everybody else, which then makes all these drunks everybody else's problem. This kids scream in the street. They sneak glasses outside and smash them on the curb. They loudly take group pictures around and on top of parked cars. They fight, they puke, they get in petty arguments. Then when it's all over, they get in their cars and drive home drunk. Look at Erie St on a Sunday morning. 100% devoid of cars. They all leave at 3 or 4am after they've littered the area.

One cop walking up and down the plaza would solve most of this. I mean, what else are the cops here for if not to deal with quality of life issues like this for residents? It's always astonishing to me to see a squad car pull up to the plaza with its lights on. Why wasn't it just parked there the whole time?

As for the private security or over-time off-duty cop paid for by the restaurants... what? Why the hell should LITM have to pay extra for Porta's problem?

If he was in a mixed use building, he would have general keys that would get him in anywhere in the building that wasn't his specific studio. $5,000 still seems high, unless they were all Medico keys or whatever. Those things are stupid expensive.

Fuck this woman. Hope she gets what's coming to her.

I live next door to Talde. It happened. They had cops posted up every 20 feet or so.

None of you heard about it because none of you pathetic peons are worth even a fraction of what they were looking to get in donations. You'd be taking up space that could be potentially occupied by another Goldman higher up.

Somehow, my invitation was also lost in the mail.

Dudes I know were supposed to play a show at Citizen last week but got there to find the place was closed. Grapevine said something about issues with the liquor license? Nothing concrete, but they were still doing takeout food orders with the kitchen open as of a week ago.
Weird. Hope it works out for them.

Re: Parking Issues Around Hamilton Park

It's definitely been getting tighter lately.

Used to be that as long as you were home before dinner time you were good to go, even on a Friday or Saturday.

Last night I couldn't find a spot for the life of me and actually gave up and went back out. hah

The permit parking should probably be amended to some degree to get people to use the lots and garages for their weekend adventures. You can park legally without a permit from 5pm on Friday until 10am on Monday. That's not terribly helpful to a resident with a job, who wants to be parked exactly during those hours.

$800k.


I still maintain I could build that bridge myself, annually, for the next 80 years, and still come in at under that budget, but that's probably a separate conversation.
Point is, putting bridges back up, fences along the entirety of the edge of the structure, as well as whatever ADA crap you'd have to do(I'm picturing a ramp with 100 switchbacks, emergency lights, and raised bump warning mats near the edges) would push this project into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Personally, I think that if Jersey City maintains its trajectory, it would be worth it and would serve as a fantastic way to visually and socially connect downtown with other neighborhoods if done in accordance with Bergen Arches, etc.

If you're arguing that it wouldn't cost that much though, you're going to lose that argument. Some how, some way, I promise you it would end up costing almost half a billion, if not more.
