I was there last night and they've gotten the back cleaned up quite nicely. It was a great spot given the weather.

That's Grand Banks Cafe. There are Christening type parties there just about every weekend so it is a popular location for that kind of thing.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who's too scared to fly unless I get molested can take a bus. Or walk, for that matter.

Re: Which local downtown JC hospital is better for Emergencies?
#5
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I've had two experiences with JCMC both of them good - a friend went to her GP with abdominal pain. He diagnosed appendicitis and instructed her to have someone take her to an emergency room so I drove her over to JCMC. It was a Tues evening about 7pm and the waiting room was full but they triaged her immediately got her in front of the on call and processed her for surgery that night. She was operated on and discharged the following day and had an overall good experience.
I cut myself on a Sunday afternoon, walked in, saw a doctor immediately got stitches and was out within an hour.
So...so far so good, but I've got a one year old and would be hesitant to take him there for an emergency based on the responses so far. Other than Hackensack, are there ERs nearby recommended for pediatrics?

The playground in Van Vorst is the only one nearby right now. If you know someone at Towers at Portside, they have a nice indoor playground.
I don't know what the completion schedule is of the playground under renovation at the corner of Greene and Essex. Here's the latest on Paulus Hook Park (aka 4-Corners):

How many people are you talking to??
Jennymala's got a point - there's a lot of interest on the local forums but I say that translates into only a few dozen people at the most. And outside of these sites I wouldn't have known about this place either.

My opening night bet is that the outside tables are a third to half full.

Dear Taqueria,
You know what you all should do? You should take to go orders from JCList threads.
I would like 2 pork tostadas and 1 fish taco with a lime wedge inside. For pickup sometime Thursday night.
Thanks

But seriously, the pork tostada could be the best single food item in downtown JC.

Then I drove back to JC, and drove past Bar Majestic, and they had the tables set up outside, but NOBODY (not one person) was sitting out there. Why??

I actually walked by Bar Majestic yesterday - sign out front said it was closed for a private party. And there were certainly no seats to be had outside at Merchant, M&P or Beechwood.
Traffic coming down Columbus was brutal but it was obvious that cars are diverting thru JC to the tunnel because of contruction on 78 and 139, which sucks but at least is temporary.

Alastor,
You are a moern day hero to me. People who use use the PATH on a regular basis know that it's a courtesy to stand to the right and allow peolple to walk by on the left. This a**hole was obviousy well aware of that custom but went out of his way to be agressive and confrontational to a stranger. I'm glad it was you and not me that ran into him because I often give the 'excuse me' when I want to pass too and as much as I hate to think so, I don't think I would have met his behavior with your measured response.
So way to stand up to this sociopath (who may be a cop?!?)and follow through the way you did after he assaulted you. Although it was met with such pathetic apathy you still did the right thing.

Has anyone noticed bad service at the A&P meat department in downtown JC's Newport area?


Yes, and the quality is dismal too.
Note that the new Morton-Williams in Newport Center has an actual real butcher. He is very engaging and enthusastic about his work, is happy to do custom cuts and often has specialy meat (I've gotten goat & rabbit). Overall M-W is more expensive than A&P but meat pricing is about the same with much higher quality and service.

"why not just leave the car unlocked....there isn't anything in there anyhow?" anyone ever do that?


Kind of. 3 times my car was broken into, each time they busted the lock and dug around inside. Never messed with the ignition. The first two times I paid to get the lock fixed; the 3rd time I just left it busted and no break-ins since (over 2 years).
My thought is that a busted lock indicates there are no valuables inside and it gives them easy enough access if they want to look inside anyway without doing more damage

bigmark,
It's good to have you all in the neighborhood - there was a need for a casual dining place where you can sit down, have a meal and a couple rounds of beer for about half of what it would cost at the high-end places in the n'hood. I now forgive you for closing the upper west side John's.

Great explanation, JCLAW & Geoff.
Question: how does the city obtain approval from the state & county (assuming it needs to) for the PILOTs, especially considering that the state is funding our public schools?

From what I understand the HPS is not big on fines and will only resort to them if someone has shown a total unwillingness to comply with regulations. However, the liabilty for the violations would become yours if you purchased the property as is and you would have to deal with the violation or, i imagine, eventually face fines from the city.

I would meet with Dan in person so you can go over in detail what is in violation and what needs to be done to remedy it - if you decide to place an offer on the property that is.
Then you would have to have a contractor provide a proposal for the work that would be done, have the proposed plans approved by the HPS, then negotiate the responsibility for the cost with the seller.
