Frank repaired my flat roof a few weeks back. He was extremely professional, reasonably priced compared to JC roofing quotes, very neat, explained the work in detail & provided before and after pictures. Highly recommend!

1. Park in the mall parking (LITERALLY at the base of the Embankment) for really a nominal fee .. 3 hours for $3.50.
2. Take the PATH & walk. (eek! Exercise!!)
3. Take the Lightrail & take a short walk (again exercise!)
4. Don't go

Please, I beg you to show me an example of an urban historic city with unlimited free parking.

On the whole I've enjoyed most dishes at previous Carrino's and the newest incarnation B&G. I just wish they had some lighter fare dishes. The 2 salad options are lackluster and the rest of the menu items are loaded with cheese, deep fried or laden with heavy sauces.

Montessori School on 17 Erie Street is AMAZING!!
#11
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


This defamation made on the Montessori School of Jersey City by JCNJ07302 is appalling and unfounded.

As a parent of a recently graduated student who attended this school for 4 years, I cannot be more pleased with my child's education.
The experience was wonderful and has really made a positive impact on my child's introduction to school and shown how exciting & fulfilling learning can be. They absolutely follow Maria Montessori practices in their teaching methods and use Montessori approved tools for learning. The Director is completely open and fully explains how her school fits into the Montessori methodology.

At 6 years old, my child left the school with what I would call advanced math skills (multiplication up to 12x, long division, understanding x&y variables and plotting on charts, basic geometry calculations), advanced grammar skills (identify sentences by all parts of speech, compound sentence writing for declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences, paragraph writing with sequential event structure etc.. ). She learned basic Spanish and French, took weekly 1:1 piano lessons and also participated in song & dance instruction, as well as weekly yoga classes. They used the outdoor garden for science class instruction and the children could at will explain, draw (& spell) the photosynthesis cycle. At 5 & 6 years old, was already performing research in books on various topics such as different animals species, Presidents of the US and would document facts and write paragraphs on each topic.

Is this ALL true "Montessori" learning, I do not know. Is this school absolutely AMAZING? --> YES!!!

If anyone is considering this school and wants to private message me, I can SHOW YOU the unbelievable work completed by my child over the years at Montessori School of Jersey City. My child was academically challenged, nurtured and loved by all of the teachers, especially the director.

My family and I had a really nice dinner here in June, I believe during the first week of dinner service. Service was pretty inattentive but the salad, pasta and chicken dish was plentiful and delicious. A week later, we ordered the identical meal for takeout. The portions were literally half of the dining-in experience from the week before. We haven't been back since but wondered if others had the same experience or was it a one off?

Re: Cleaning Service

Over the years we have used various local cleaning services on a bi-weekly basis. They all start out fantastic but after a few months or so.... they all seem to become lazy and careless. We've had some doozies resulting in a shattered toilet, cracked laptop screen and a hole in the wall!

Can anyone recommend a reliable and consistent cleaning service that you've used for a long time? A service that is bonded/insured is a must. Looking forward to responses or PMs.
Thanks!

No time to quote your hysterics about brownstones becoming an auto body shop, abandoned cars and whatnot... Your original argument was focused abound zoning and asking how a business could possibly open up on a residential block and I was simply "reminding" you it was a business BEFORE.

jcgurl: You must be fairly new to the neighborhood... Although this storefront was vacant for some time, it was previously a bodega. Hence, it was commercially zoned BEFORE. It was not someone's living room turned Italian bakery. Maybe get your facts straight before ranting.

I'm trying hard not to get too drawn into this but it seems like some of the commenters don't understand the concept of zoning. Areas that are zoned as "residential" prohibit businesses from opening up there. This helps protect the character of a neighborhood and protects property values. Without zoning, a car repair shop could open next to my brownstone and leave broken down cars all over the place.

I'm planning a low key birthday party at an area park, probably Newport Green. Please contact me via private message so we can coordinate a time to discuss additional details and meet in person.

Re: Bogus parking ticket- Has this happened to anyone?

Thanks Jerseymom, very helpful advice.

I agree, that area for parking seems questionable. If the ticketed offense indicated illegal parking in area or too close to bus stop, that would at least make sense and should be clearly marked with signs. However, those weren't the statutes marked on the ticket.

Bogus parking ticket- Has this happened to anyone?
#27
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


This past Saturday night, a friend of mind parked on Washington Blvd close to the area of Target, on the southbound side of Washington. He was parked next to the Target Parking lot. In this area, weekend parking is allowed without permit. On Sunday morning, he went to his car and found a ticket. He was issued a ticket for statute 332-69 and statute 4-97. He owes the Jersey City a total of $385.

332-69 is Restricted parking zones in front of or near residences of disabled driver. Again, this is a main road and not in front of or on the same side of the road as any of the Newport Towers.

4-97 is for careless driving. This car was parked on Saturday night and the ticket was issued Sunday morning. I guess careless parking falls under careless driving?

My friend called the court and he was told that the reason he received the ticket was because he was parked in front of a handicap driver's vehicle. Not IN or Blocking a Handicap spot but ** IN FRONT ** of a handicap persons car. There isn't even a handicap spot in that area. The disabled driver of the car with the handicap sticker called and complained to the Police. The Police Officer is apparently obligated to issue a ticket. Also, there is no proof that my friend's car was parked after the handicap car parked.

Has this ever happened to anyone on here? Doesn't this sound like a completely bogus ticket that should be fought?

Thanks for clarifying most of my questions, but I think you misunderstand (or perhaps purposefully obfuscate) the statement.

The fact that it's past December should have no relevance to a food truck operating somewhere in the vicinity. The taco cart, for example. was a phenomenal addition to the area and one I miss more than most, especially late nights. They were not part of any market, yet no longer seem to be in that area.

Clearly that is due to the sporadic nonsense about being 300 feet away from a restaurant or get hit with some enormous ticket.



Sad face... you JCListers are too cynical! I wasn't trying to obfuscate - I just misunderstood/read to fast. So it is two things driving the fact that you are seeing fewer food trucks: 1) markets were part of the reasons you saw food trucks (they were legal there under markets) and they end in December and 2) food trucks were illegally parked there during non-market hours and they are probably being enforced due to business owners calling in complaints.

That is why I say that the root of the problem here is that the legislation surrounding food trucks overall is no good and needs to be overhauled. Thriving brick and mortar is not mutually exclusive to food trucks. We should obviously be encouraging food innovation. Solutions for food trucks is something that is 100% being worked on.


Candice, I really appreciate the insight you have provided to this thread and I'm sure many others do too. And I'm heartened by your recognizance of the need for reform and your work on solutions.

Thanks for doing what you do!

You are 100% wrong on this one and simply using as another opportunity to slander Two Boots owner's name. This "300 feet" law has been on the books for some time, way longer than Two Boots' existence. It was under this law, that the Hamilton Pk Ale House (post Maggie- pre Hamilton Inn) forced food trucks around Hamilton Park to be fined and removed.

I think Candice addressed your issue at the end of her post talking about the 300 foot rule. That law was recently put on the books (within the past 2 years). It must be the basis for the huge tickets.

How did it get there? Well, I wouldn't know for sure, but given the Two Boots owner's "outspoken" stance on the issue, it seems pretty logical to me that he was instrumental in lobbying for the 300 foot ban. Also, since it seems the 300 foot rule has only recently been enforced (leading to the total absence of food trucks from the plaza), I would think that Two Boots and the other listed owners are behind this recent enforcement as well.

After all, the same arguments they use to justify the ban of "prepared food" from the Farmers Market are equally applicable to the times when the market is not in session. Finally, given Two Boots posts, it would stand to reason that he would oppose reform of the law that he likely helped implement.

If I'm wrong about any of this I'd love for him to correct me.
