Based on Two Boots rationale: the farmers market shouldn't exist at all. The farm stands at the farmer's market are direct competition with the fruit veggie markets on Newark like Tendershoot farm and P&K. And I'm not talking empanadas vs pizza, true competition, apples to apples. Why are their restaurants so special that they want an ordinance to block the food vendors but don't seem to care about their neighboring business owners who sell fruits and veggies?
Also, I don't understand why the market has to be for JC vendors only. I frequently buy from Paolo's b/c their food is homemade and good, and they offer me something I can't get at Two Boots or other JC restaurants. Paolo's are also a brick and mortar business (just not in JC) so they pay all the expenses the 17 business owners are complaining the vendors don't. They were just business savvy enough to expand their business to farmers markets all over NJ. That just sounds like good business sense to me.

I'm assuming the lovely smell permeating downtown has something to do with the water main break, but what is it?

Does anyone have a number that the JC Post office actually answers? I call the number online (201-915-7038) and it says to call the 800 number. I call the 800 number and it tells me to call 201-915-7041. I call that number and it just rings and then says your call will be disconnected. I found on here to call 201-915-7040, but that is also just a recording to call the 800 number.
Thanks

There are a few yahoo groups that seem to always have people posting about available nannies. One is the JerseyCityFamilyInitiative and I think the other is JerseyCityMoms. Good luck!

I was pulling for it to be called The Embalment, but I guess that wouldn't have the same marketing power as The Mansion.

Well, sounds like local traffic was a mess. What about the Turnpike extension or 280?

Did anyone drive out west and back to JC this weekend? Curious what the traffic was like on the alternative routes when the Pulaski was closed.

I'm looking for drop off classes, only in Downtown, to send my two and a half year old a few days a week. I know 3 little birds has a program, anyone have any reviews of that?
Are there any other similiar type programs downtown?

Thank you!

Re: Restaurants charging more on Seamless
#11

I understand that they are charged a fee, but if restaurants don't want to pay it or don't have the budget it for it, then don't be a part of Seamless. I would think that the visibility Seamless provides would bring in more new customers to justify the fees. And, according to Seamless, they are contractually required to charge the same as their printed menu.

From Seamless.com
What is the fee for using Seamless?

There is absolutely no fee for using Seamless.


How is the menu pricing determined?

The restaurants are contractually required to offer the same prices as they provide on their printed delivery menus. In fact, many restaurants actually offer you 20% off your first order from them on Seamless, meaning ordering through Seamless is often less expensive than ordering over the phone. If for any reason you believe the prices you see on Seamless are not consistent, please notify us at care@seamless.com and we?ll reach out to the restaurant to make it right.

Lesson learned. The convenience of Seamless does not justify paying $16 for a pizza when I can call and get it for $11. I might pay an extra dollar, but $5 is egregious.

Restaurants charging more on Seamless
#13

Not too shy to talk


Has anyone come across any JC restaurants increasing their menu prices on Seamless vs. their printed menus? I feel like an idiot that I'm just noticing that Delenio's increases it's prices on Seamless by sometimes up to 47%. I've been a loyal customer since they opened and feel stupid that I didn't notice the uptick in prices starting in 2013. I get that Seamless charges restaurants a fee, but from the below article, I was under the impression that they weren't supposed to pass that on to the customers. At the very least, it would have been a better business practice to disclose it to their customers.

I guess my love affair with Seamless has come to an end.

What I miss most pre Grove Pointe was the view of Manhattan walking down Newark towards the Path. Granted, that view changed even before it went up, but still.

I don't expect NJ Transit to pick up the Port Authority's slack because this has nothing to do with NJ Transit. I don't expect them to change routes for a problem that is not theirs, nor do I think anyone is asking for "special service" from NJ Transit. But in the past when PATH lines have been down there have been shuttles provided by the Port Authority. My inquiry pertains to shuttles/buses from the PA, nothing to do with NJ Transit.

End of story.


+1

My dad was just telling me "back in the day" when the PATH was down they had a very efficient shuttle service. I saw on Twitter today "PANYNJ/PATH neither owns nor operates buses. As such, we do not have the ability to provide bus service."
Then on NJ.com, the federal government is sending about 200 buses to help pick up the slack.

Who knows what's really going on, but agree, it just makes sense to have some sort of shuttle downtown. I'm sure the commuters in JSQ don't want ALL the people downtown who normally take the PATH to crowd their buses.

PathH8Tr, what you mention about the menus is interesting. My building tends to get bombarded with those things. I'm going to pay closer attention to who I see dropping those off.



Sounds just like this burglary last June.

You can bring injured birds to the Raptor Trust. It's about a half hour away, not sure if there is anything closer.

And please don't throw your bags of poop in private garbage cans on the curb from the prior nights garbage pick up. I personally bring my can back into my basement and don't need a fresh bag of sh*t in my house.
