We have bought dough from Porta in the past. I can't say for sure, but I think it was about $5.

Nice to see that they got a legit talent booker - the same guy who books Webster Hall. I look forward to seeing what kind of acts they can bring to JC over the next year or so.

This article makes me hopeful that White Eagle Hall will bring some nationally and regionally touring acts to Jersey City. Monty Hall has done a nice job booking some surprisingly well known and well regarded bands, but a bigger venue (like White Eagle Hall) could do a lot for the live music scene here.

Quote FTA: "White Eagle Hall’s performance schedule is literally top secret at the moment – non-disclosure agreements have been signed and details cannot be released until a certain time -
which is extremely exciting. They promise a packed fall schedule that will slowly reveal itself this summer."

Oasis of Salvation Church on Wayne St continues to never remove snow unless it snows on Sunday. I have submitted complaints over the last two years, and nothing ever happens.

Last year my wife was pregnant and had to struggle to walk to the PATH. This year we have to pick up and carry the stroller over the church's uncleared sidewalks. That church is the worst neighbor on my block.

Re: Trump Our New President

Not too shy to talk


Saving 1,000 jobs is great, but it is a PR stunt more than anything. Carrier is still laying off a substantial number of employees in Indiana, and state tax incentives (care of Gov Pence) had to be offered to keep just some of the jobs in the US. I don't think Trump traveling the country and offering tax breaks to every company that wants to offshore is a sustainable plan.

I am glad that Trump/Pence managed to save a few jobs, but to act like previous presidents or the current president haven't protected American jobs is simply ridiculous. I'll just leave these links here as examples of what can happen when the government successfully intervenes to prop up and save an industry. Note that the job gains are in the 100s of thousands.

Your link is not helping you prove your point 135jc. Go ahead and re-read it. When new jobless claims are close to a 43 year low, a slight week-over-week increase is not proof of a poor job market or high job losses.

Click the 10Y or MAX button on this chart and you'll get a pretty good idea of where new unemployment claims are in 2016 compared to historical averages (hint: current numbers are very good).

Have you seen the latest job reports? Don't forget an unprecedented near zero interest rates for many yrs.
Here is the BLS table for monthly change in total nonfarm employees. There hasn't been a single month of job loss since September 2010. From 10/2010 through 09/2016, 14.375 million jobs have been added, an average of 200k jobs per month.

If you don't like this kind of bar, don't be a patron of it. If enough people do the same, the bar will close, and maybe something that is more in line with your vision of positive change will replace it.

The way I see it, these people are investing in Jersey City in the way that they see fit. You are free to invest in Jersey City in your own ways. The market will decide who wins.

The sex abuse was wrong and I am delighted the priests was caught. However, everyone talked about the church but no one talked about the gay priests sexually assaulting boys. That is the elephant in the room that was not discussed by the media. I am so happy those priests are in jail and not in the priesthood.
The priests were pedophiles and predators, not homosexuals. There is a difference. The fact that you want to call out "gay priests" as the main issue in that story only further exposes your bigotry (as if it weren't already clear as day).

The church was the focus of those stories because some of those in power within one of the most influential organizations in the entire world were covering up rampant and widespread sexual abuse against children. There is no elephant in the room, and anyone with half a damn brain realizes that the media focused on the church because the church was largely at fault.

Yvonne, I am sure you realize that young boys are molested as well. Should men be banned from men's restrooms, so that they won't rape young boys? Seems like the easiest fix here, if we want to prevent all rapes, is to only allow men to use bathrooms in their own homes.

I just don't follow the logic of your argument, Yvonne. Rape and sexual molestation are both illegal in all places, including public restrooms. Changing the sign on the bathroom door is not going to allow or prevent crimes.

Thank you for so eloquently describing the paternalism embodied behind most "progressive" policies.

Who cares if you own a business? I know how to run it better than you. This is for your own good.
This is a ridiculous response, but that is not surprising by a partisan hack such as yourself. The article isn't about government telling business owners how to run their business. It is about a local government making decisions for local roads/sidewalks/etc, which is fully within their domain. Try to stay on topic.

What fantasy world do people live in where the government would do a better job shoveling sidewalks than the people who live with the sidewalk in front of their home? The main walkways would be shoveled long before any residential streets. Looking into the Ottawa situation, it appears that a lot of home owners still shovel their own walkways due to this timing.

I'm not going to wait around for the shovel crew to come past my building so that I can walk down the stairs and to the store. Give me a break.

I'd more likely be in favor of increased fines for people and businesses that don't shovel. Maybe that could help finance an auxiliary city team of shovelers that could take care of the sidewalks that owners neglected.

Oasis of Salvation Church did a terrible job clearing their sidewalks last year, and it seems to be continuing this year.

On Sunday, they shoveled to the point that there was still a couple inches of hard packed snow remaining. I really hope that it melts today, because it will be a slippery mess once it starts raining.

I will be submitting requests to the JC online help center each time there is snow this year. It is bad enough that this place doesn't pay taxes, but they can at least try to be as considerate as all the other neighbors on Wayne St who cleared their sidewalks on Sunday.

How would you like Fulop to address the situation? As far as I know, Jersey City has been expanding its police force, which seems like a pretty rational response to increased violent crime. I highly doubt the people involved in the shootings would be affected by a mayoral press conference, but I guess it is possible.

This does nothing to change the fact that it is scientifically proven that unhealthy diets lead to shorter life spans on average. You can also point to plenty of people who drank alcohol and smoked cigarettes until the day they died, but it doesn't change the evidence that putting garbage into the human body damages the body and can lead to disease/obesity/death.

Laughing at someone calling Chick Fil A unhealthy makes you sound foolish and uninformed. The Chick Fil A founder living a long life doesn't discount the fact that plenty of people who regularly consumed deep fried fast food died from heart disease, diabetes, and various other ailments brought on by that kind of diet. I'd bet there are a lot more of those people than the kind whose genetics overcame their poor habits.

Kitchen Step sounds good to me. Although it is an expensive night out, I have always enjoyed Battello, and I'm sure the location adds a lot to the price. Since they are saying that the Kitchen Step menu will be more affordable, I look forward to trying it out. Sounds like it will be a good addition to the neighborhood, and it is definitely better than another pizza place.

Re: Carrino Provisions

Not too shy to talk


Sounds like a good move to me. I bought a coffee from Carrino once (meh) and I think my wife ate at the Osteria twice. I don't think we are outside the DTJC norm, so it doesn't seem unreasonable that Carrino Provisions didn't do well here. It was a good idea, but probably wasn't right for the area, even regardless of the execution.

While Bell + Gray doesn't sound like it is breaking new ground for our area, it does seem more likely to be a success, and it could still be a good addition to the neighborhood. While JCListers might prefer more bars without televisions and fewer restaurants serving burgers and slightly elevated American bar food, the fact is that those kinds of places are successful in JC and elsewhere. All it takes is one walk around downtown to find a dinner table on a Friday night to realize there is still demand for more of this kind of restaurant. If the food at B+G is up to Dale Talde's standards and it has a cool/fun environment, I'm sure it will do well.

I'll add one more comment about the inconsistency. I love Prato's focaccia sandwiches, but I went there yesterday for a late lunch, and the bread on the sandwiches looked at least twice as thick as it had been on my previous visits. I decided to still order the Siena, but I was disappointed. When the meat/cheese/tomato are sliced so thin, the bread needs to be thin as well.

This was the first time I had any sort of "issue", but if I go back and see the sandwiches looking like they did yesterday, I certainly won't be ordering just to be disappointed again.

Yes, 100%. I am a big time concert goer and spend thousands of dollars on tickets each year. I'd love for some of my ticket purchases to be for shows in Jersey City.

You may not be the target market, but there is a HUGE market for live music, and the costs are increasing because there is such big demand. Look at larger concert venues across the northeast, and you will see mostly sell outs and mostly tickets that are $50-$250.
