Re: Yvonne Outdoes Herself - Transgender Bathroom Editorial

Have you been in a women's restroom? There is no digging around for junk happening outside each enclosed stall, except maybe for lipstick or a brush in a handbag. WTF do you think actually goes on in there that something so aberrant wouldn't immediately freak everyone out because it is totally different from what people normally do in a public women's restroom. Which is go into a stall alone, and eliminate waste, alone.

Bathroom accommodation will "open it up" to rapists and molesters? Funny. You think a rapist is worried about violating bathroom gender rules? That's like saying enforcing a 20 mph speed limit around banks will prevent robbers from getting away.

Yeah--don't assume food poisoning. I thought I had it when my partner and I got violently sick within an hour of each other after eating out. I even called the restaurant and complained. When my mother got the same thing two days later, and then her friend a day after that, we knew it wasn't food poisoning, but probably norovirus. A lot like food poisoning, but not.

And the two events are related how? If they left the scratch in place, not touched up the mini-cooper and not moved on, then Tony would not have had an accident?

Nice post, Susan_N. I agree with everything you said, the way you said it, and am coming from the same perspective as a female living in B-L for the past 6 years.

Does anyone know what a new iron driveway gate should cost (gate/installation)? I am not sure what reasonable ballpark numbers are for iron work generally--I am thinking about 5 feet high. Thanks in advance.

This is excellent news. I cannot stand the putrid smell of that place and it does stink up the area for miles around. One point of confusion, however, is that the article says Reliable must eliminate mulch sales, but then paragraphs down says reduce, with respect to mulch production, etc. I am hoping this means reduce immediately and eliminate completely within 18 months.

I agree with you, Griffin, on your points about the neighborhood changing, perceptions, and who lives here. I make a lot more than 75K and live here because I want to spend my money on other things.

When I lived in the Heights, I used to frequent this place. Loved it. The tacos were hands down best I have had in JC. And they put a lot of care, simple as it is, into the food, service, atmosphere.

I have had the opposite experience with the JCPD--consistently. There was an incident several years ago when I heard someone on the first floor, called 911, and there were at least 10 cops surrounding the house within 10 minutes (the perp heard me call and ran out). Other times they have responded promptly to alarms---whether intentionally or accidentally triggered. That is not to say anything about the crime rate, just that I have been fortunate to have very good experiences with the police.

I also really liked this place the first few times, but then became discouraged by the inconsistent service and hope that the owner and staff take the comments on this board seriously because I hope they make it. I love the brussells sprouts. And I really want to like the people that work there, but I find their behavior draining, as opposed to comforting and service-oriented. From top to bottom. They should make you feel like YOU are special when you go there to spend your money, not like they or the place itself is special.

Gate 51 in Port Authority has a fairly reliable jitney service that runs regularly. Last time I took it, there was a schedule posted, but I believe the last one leaves somewhere between 9-10pm.

I don't think $72,000 annual salary is a "lot" of money in the NYC area. Especially where there are likely insurance/expenses that must come off the top. That is not to presume anything about anyone's financial situation or other---but I just don't think that is a very big salary. That said, I don't disagree with bargaining for a lower price whenever it makes sense and the parties agree.

I never made it to Modern American Eatery before that place closed, so I intend to dine here soon. LRC's menu seems good--though simple--and the restaurant itself looks very nice. So hopefully it will be a sustainable business in a neighborhood that can use a nice place to eat and hang out.

Has anyone tried this place yet? It looks like a great addition to the B-L neighborhood. Some friends have been who said it is very good, and the website is inviting. Full bar, etc.

"because I wanted my housing dollars to go further" means that you cannot afford to live in Manhattan.


No one but the very richest of the rich could afford to live in Manhattan the way I live in Jersey City. If you don't understand that, then really there is no point in discussing further. Yes, I can afford a 2 bedroom something or other in Manhattan. I cannot afford a 5-bedroom, 14-room house, with driveway and garage, and workshop IN Manhattan. But that is what is important to me, and where I want my housing dollars to go. Not to being 5 blocks from the office or nice restaurants. Get it?

I am looking for recommendations for a more heavy-duty cleaning service than regular maintenance cleaning. I have recently done some construction, painting, etc., and need thorough washing, dusting, some minor debris removal. Not major construction or rubble, but definitely more extensive than just a routine cleaning. Thank you.

Agreed---spectacular. The fried chicken is crispy, tender and juicy inside. And mac n cheese is just the way I like it, somewhat firm with a lot of cheese. Corn bread was great. And portions are very generous. I was really surprised by how good it all is.

I recently picked up dinner here on a friend's recommendation, and have been back twice. Fried chicken, collard greens, mac n cheese, yams, corn bread---all delicious, fresh, homemade, and inexpensive. The place is on Ocean Ave, near Fulton, small. Not a great part of town, but Gale and staff are nice and inviting, and I thought the food was better than Soul Flavors.

For better or worse, food is about a lot more than nutrition and always has been. Without getting into any historical analysis, I think we can say that eating hamburgers and hotdogs is a lot more pleasurable a dining experience, especially to kids, than some of the other suggestions here. You get to put whatever it is--meat or not-- on a bun, assemble the vegetables and other condiments the way you like, and express your love or hatred of pickles, ketchup, mustard, relish, piccalilly---etc.

There is a ferry that goes between Warren St and LSP every half hour on its way to and from the World Financial Center. It costs a dollar each way, and it runs from about 6am to 8:30pm weekdays, abbreviated on weekends. I take it quite frequently---it is a good service, I think run by Statue Cruises.

Re: JC receives $175,000 state grant to study public-transportation options in Liberty State Pa

There are currently 2 ferries that serve the area, not sure another would make a difference, unless it were cheap to ride with free parking and/or easy pedestrian access.

Generally, that is one of the biggest problems I see concerning the park---the lack of safe, pleasant access to the park by foot. I live on the other side of Garfield and the industrial wasteland between the park and the residential areas feels like a moat of sorts. I sometimes ride a bike to the park, but there are no lanes, lots of broken glass, the gagging stench of moldering mulch piles from the recycling plant, cars flying around to and from the turnpike. Just not pleasant to get there unless one drives.
