Re: Liquor Store on Jersey Ave and 8th Street

Kind of a bummer, but I feel like they never had more than the equivalent of two cases of beer on hand anyway. Not to mention, I feel like cats took the place over the last few times i'd been there.

I can't say I disagree. I certainly haven't posted here a ton, but have lurked/read for years. It's become almost exclusively Yvonne/anti-Yvonne, right wing shills and those that defend them, and reposting of NJ.com stories. I don't love nextdoor either, but there's more actual information there, as well as JCupfront and Jersey City Eats - without the mean spiritid-ness and name-calling. Don't get me wrong, I love snark, but it hasn't even been fun snark lately. I'm not leaving, but this certainly isn't anywhere near as informative and community oriented as it used to be.

Some really nice thinly-veiled racism on display here. Congrats JCList - you never disappoint! I too am nervous about the crowd he'll attract: an overabundance of Hoboken bros in their 30s (think 'Old School,' which made fun of white people liking Snoop 15 years ago).

I don't understand this logic at all. What's stopping anyone from going into any bathroom of their choosing right now? A law? Who's going to monitor every bathroom? Yvonne can't be everywhere at once. And assuming every transgender person is a pervert, which is neither provable nor true, why would a lawless pervert decide not to go into a bathroom just because there's a law against it? I can see where the mental illness might be coming from, and it's not transgender people.

This Saturday is Small Business Saturday, but you don't have to wait until then to go to a local coffee shop if you're that upset with Starbucks.

Bar Nine is a few blocks away on Erie, and Dames a few blocks from there. If you're that hell bent on Satrbucks, there's one in the Newport Center and another at Target, or you can just buy some coffee and burn it at home for that signature Starbucks taste.

Lamp Post closing

The Lamp Post will be closing permanently on January 11th. They'll be having a closing party on Saturday 1/10. From the event's Facebook page:

Quote:
Lamp Post will be closing it's doors January 11th. We have loved getting to know all of you, and watching our neighborhood grow with so many fantastic people. We appreciate all of the love and support that everyone has given us over the years, and we couldn't ask for a better group of people.

January 10th will be our last Saturday, and we want to go out with a bang! We have entertainment starting at 4:30 until last call. There will be LOTS of drink specials, and we invite all of you to come celebrate with us!

We love you, and thank you.


It's a shame that there's one less venue to play in Jersey City now, even if it was the only place where a band could be interrupted by people getting food from the kitchen. While White Eagle will eventually open, it's hard to imagine that they'll be as supportive of local talent as Lamp Post was.

Re: Investing in JSQ
#17
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I'd agree with the last three posters about it being a place to invest. However, as someone that bought my property in McGinley Square are about five years ago, I've seen my property value plummet pretty significantly. I hope it's at the bottom now, and starts to increase soon.

That being said, it does seem like a good time to buy, with property being as cheap as it is (which i wish i knew five yrs ago). It's not going to increase significantly for a while, though. I think that once Journal Square gets some development, Montgomery Gardens goes away, and more people get priced out of/disenfranchised by an increasingly Hobokenized downtown, that more will seek out the JSQ area.

That happened to me a few years ago (was on Washington for 10 minutes, came back and there was a boot and ticket on my car). I was pretty outraged, as it was my first offense too.

I sent an email to my then-councilman, a guy named Steve Fulop, and he emailed the parking commissioner and had the boot fee removed. Not saying it'll happen to you, but that's one of the ways he won my vote.

I live in a building that faces that alley. The only people I ever see walking through it are residents that live on the block parking their cars and people walking their dogs. I wouldn't necessarily think of it as a place to avoid, especially at 3:30 in the afternoon.

Re: Apartments at 61 Duncan Ave?
#21
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I own a property on Duncan between JFK and Bergen, and lived there for a year. My block was quiet, tree-lined, and with well-maintained properties. In the time I lived there, I didn't experience any problems. I'm a male, but had no problems walking back from the PATH train, even late at night. Having lived in cities the majority of my life, if you have street smarts, you'll have no problems.

While the Reed street shootout was a bit disconcerting, that could have happened nearly anywhere, and I wouldn't look at it as a reason not to move to the area. The only problem, as other posters have brought up, is that there really aren't any cool bars/restaurants in the area withing walking distance. It's not going to have the amenities downtown has anytime soon, but I can imagine that in time, gentrification might start to impact the McGinley Square area.

Oh, but to just dance on steel, the Sky Pulaski way.

So hats off to the industry's casualties

Pull you under New Amsterdam.
Chinese boxes hold their secrets well.
How many are there one can never tell.

Art class for the bourgeoisies, lab rats for the cat.
Real estate moguls, Chump Towers,
When the wind blows you can hear the windows go rat a tat rat a tat tat tat.

Jimmy Hoffa in the Meadowlands, weighing down that union man.
Grab his ankles, stevedores,
Oh how those Jets do roar.

Your rights aren't being taken away. You buy a ticket, they have the right to search you. Plus, you don't get searched unless you refuse the scanner. It's a lot more convenient than losing your luggage, your seat and your life from a plane blowing up.

you don't want it? Congratulations for being one of the 19% of people that objects to a full body scanner. Enjoy NJ transit and Amtrak. I hear it's lovely this time of year. objects

There has been an epidemic of tire slashings on this block over the past month or so. I got a flat several weeks ago, and while it was apparently not due to being slashed, several people stopped me to tell me their tires has been slashed recently.

Re: What do you think about Duncan ave. off of JFK Blvd. in Journal SQ?
#27
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I bought a place on Duncan between JFK and Bergen a few years ago. I planned on living there for a while, but after a pay cut, went back to downtown and living with a roommate, and am still subletting the place. Having lived there for nearly a year, I had almost no problems. That block is quiet and tree-lined, and close to a supermarket and several produce markets on Bergen (if you're healthy) and a Dunkin Donuts (if you're not).

As far as sketchiness, you're fine during the day, and you'll want to keep an eye out at night. Having lived in Brooklyn, it sounds like you've got a good attitude and aren't expecting a suburb or anything. It's a 15 minute walk to the PATH, and the only time I had any sort of problem was walking home one night around 3 when I noticed I was being followed (i'm a guy). I ran to a cab and scared him off. If you'll be driving a lot, then you shouldn't have any problems, but keep in mind that street parking doesn't come easy around there and you might have to pay to park in a lot.

For the most part, i'd say that if you can get in at that price, go for it. that's a great deal, and worth it for the lack of bars/restaurants/shops if you just want a nice apt. to come home to. PM me if you want more details or have any questions.

Yes, it's true. I saw the owner last night and he confirmed it. While they had high hopes for the Jersey City store, there was so much bureaucracy to get the store open, that by the time it was open, he was already looking to get out. Nice job, Jersey City. At least he's leaving it in the hands of another franchise and it won't join the 99 cent stores along newark.
