I had the mac daddy and the disco fries both were really good. the beef patty is kinda fatty and juicy. They do have veggie options as well as turkey/tuna/chicken.

my complaints are that they didn't have a wine list. it was only a house red or house white. i think they need a few by the bottle options. also we went early and the place smelled weird at first. maybe it was cabbage but it was not appealing.

you can't oppose development because of no parking. JC needs to get away from requiring parking decks in buildings. The sewers? really? i agree we need to upgrade but we can't stop development because of it, nor will we.it would be nice to see something built on the lot.

I live in dixon mills and am excited to try it out. I spoke with the owner a few months ago and they were supposed to have renovated the exterior, does anyone know why they have not done so yet? I think the reno will improve business as now it looks dark and in desperate need of renewal. I wonder if it was something with the permits.

Actually it sounds like that the tower on Grand will be 20 stories, and the 45 story tower will be immediately behind this, closer to Gulls Cove. Maybe this sounds tall, but keep in mind that Grove Point is 29 stories already and 70 and 90 Columbus have been approved at 48 stories. 255 Grand Street, which would be the property directly east of the proposed buildings is 16 or 17 stories.

The height and size of buildings is never alone the problem; its the confluence of size, both big and small, along with poor quality architecture and planning that creates problematic urban landscapes.


regardless of the size of the buildings around grove st path LHN area should not go above 20 stories tops in my opinion. it will look out of place and cast shadows everywhere. we should keep that area low to mid rise. there is still plenty of land for towers closer to the waterfront/PAD/grove st that is more appropriate for towers. 45 stories even behind that near gulls cove is too tall.

also facts need to be checked for Dixon Mills.....

'For Dixon Mills was from what friends who lived me told me all the heating and air conditioning was electric so the bill could get high, it might be gas now, but probably not. '


Not true. The hot water for the heat and the cooling for the AC are not part of each unit's PSEG bill but the monthly maintenance fee. The unit owner pays the electric for the fan, and for their personal hot water heater for the hot water in the unit.

Although, Dixon Mills IS usually criminal on criminal violence, so you got that going for ya. Don't get caught with hollowpoints-that adds 5 years. Cheers.


there are no rats in dixon mills. just becuase your dad worked there years ago doesn't mean you're a knowledge center on it.

this is crap. the area is safe as long as you use common sense. just walk down c columbus at night. i have lived here for ten years without a problem and bought in dixon mills over a year ago and love it. for the price, the space can't be beat. the gym is set to open in paril as well which will be a nice addition.

You silly fools.

Whoever spoke to the parks department must have used a cup and string. It's pretty plain to see that the trees right in front of Dixon are not being cut down, in fact the contractors are working hard (it seems) to work around the existing trees.

I spoke with Steven Fulop, emailed him this string and he has responded somewhat. I believe he has contacted the parks department.


JcNDlovingIT are you calling yourself a silly fool?... because your post is foolish.


Uhm..I live in Dixon Mills and they cut four trees down right in front of my eyes- along the parking lot fence on C Columbus between Brunswick and Monmouth so get your facts right. The city responded and the project manager left me a vmail explaining the situation. I have yet to respond because I have been out of the country but the city has been great in following up. Perhaps after my call they decided to save some of the trees I still have to follow up with them....

They are putting new curb cuts and sidewalk in starting with the western end of Christopher Columbus. They are also cutting EVERY tree down in their path. I live in Dixon Mills and my outdoor space overlooks C Columbus. The medium size trees provided some street/noise cover. Is there somewhere I can complain to? I wonder if they are planning to cut every tree down on C Columbus in their way. The area already looks atrocious enough!

There will not be a tax abatement.

I moved into the 'D' Building a year ago. No mice or bugs. I have a top floor duplex. I love it. And Dahill is right they are improving things everyday. I heard the hallways will start being redone soon.

A 2 bedroom could be low to mid 400s but if you want outdoor space and 2 bathrooms high 400s and some into the 500s for the best ones.

Good points ianmac47 & hero69

Cafe seating is great, but why take land to give to other property owners for outside seating in a new city-made alleyway? Sure it is great for those two building owners -- but hell, the city has already changed zoning for that block or two and allows for bars right next to bars, so obviously those two owners will rent their buildings out to bars to max their rent rolls.

But if you want to try to "Redevelop Newark Avenue," if you want it nicer to walk down, further than a block or two, then you place all Cafe seating out onto Newark Avenue and not in some alleyway! Just look at Grove Street -- would that cafe seating be better off in some alley?

[/quote]

The 'paseo' (note not 'some alley')seating can offer shade and be away from the hustle and bustle, and people walking their dogs and the car noise. they have this type of seating in montclair and it is quite nice.

I agree that the alley project sounds lame, and would require a big sales pitch to get people on board, but do you really live in a world where people only travel in one direction? By your logic, the alley is just as likely to steer Grove Street traffic towards the rest of Newark Ave and downtown as it is to steer it away from Newark Ave. That last stretch of Newark is a very long block, and providing more access points and options could just as likely help get people onto Newark Avenue.


From where are these mystery pedestrians coming from? Anyone on Grove Street can get to Newark Avenue at Grove Street. Anyone on Barrow Street can get to Newark Avenue from Barrow Street. Is there some mysterious tunnel where pedestrians emerge in the middle of Columbus Blvd that would make a passageway in the middle of the block useful? Is there some sort of Harry Potter magic that makes Columbus blvd between Grove Street and Barrow Street infinitely long?

The passageway concept is a false hope. Its the sort of pet project some elected official latches onto because he thinks that soliciting votes is the same thing as being qualified to make urban planning decisions. The idea reeks of 1980's urban renewal.


I think the point of the paseo is less of getting from one side to the other...and more to have some seating areas for restaurants that is quiet. It will be much better than dining on c columbus or directly on newark.

I drove by today and the pilings are done and they are starting to put some of the metal bars in for pouring the concrete. There were only about 4-5 workers. At least something is being done.

I live in Dixon Mills, so of course I think it is a good buy, but Crescent Court will probably have lower maintenance fees when it opens which might make it a viable alternative.

They haven't done anything on the site in about 2 months. All of the piles seem to have been driven, thats about it. It will be good for the area once it is completed. The prices aren't bad but who is going to buy something when there is nothing above ground level...expecially in this market?

I looked at some of the pricier units in the building that are still for sale (the smaller one and two bedrooms sold out). The problem is they were loft set-ups- really huge spaces but not really good for more than one or two people (unless they add walls) and the view was over the back of Shoprite. The asking price for some of these was around $2m. For that neighborhood in the current condition, no thanks.
