Embarrassing question. I recently began taking the WTC PATH to the 4/5 train. I can't seem to find the underground passage from the downtown subway to the Oculus. I don't have an issue the other way, from the PATH to the 4/5 train. I never see any workers around to ask. Help!


I have yet to find the way out of that Escher drawing. have given up trying, and just go right to street level and find my way to the PATH overground.

another odd PATH/subway connection: the A/C.
signs in the occulus point commuters towards the Fulton Street stop, which takes forever to find and involves numerous staircases. on the other hand, following signs to the E train puts you a short easy underground walk from the Chambers Street A/C.

I've started actively hoping Talde burns to the ground. Early morning fire. No injuries. No damage to the rentals above. Just a kitchen fire that puts them out of business for 6 months to a year while they rehab. Is that wrong?

We hit peak shitty neighbor when their security guard fought a guy in MY STAIRWELL. Escorted the guy out of the club, alright solid move. Instead of diffusing the situation though, they brawled in my vestibule and fucked up my mailboxes.
While it is actually pretty funny to me, if I were not a guy that spends a lot of his time on WSHH, I might find it less funny.

Worst neighbors I've ever had, and that includes the neighbors that used to rob my roommates at gunpoint regularly. At least they were fucking quiet about it.


what does Talde put in their drinks that propels their clientele to SCREAM all the way up Erie Street at 2am? booze usually makes me a little sleepy.

Rolon's (the keyhole) has been across the street for fifty years, and you never hear boo from them. it is possible to have a bar in a residential neighborhood, when said bar isn't patronized by assholes.

so yes, please Gringos, take our late-night Talde douchebags. we'll give you all the stars on Yelp if you do.

Wow. A little broad don't you think? Lets try it with some substitutions and see how it sounds when referring to the behavior of a small segment of a different population.

Comfortable with that?


nice try, Godwin.

pointing out the well-documented behavior of a very specific community is not painting with a broad brush. it's this "ooh we mustn't be seen as anti-anything" mentality that doomed the Ramapo school system.

There's a new dog/awful owner in town, and that shit is HUGE.

In recent weeks, in a three block radius around Erie/Jersey/2nd, enormous piles of poop are left behind on the daily.

If you know someone who just got a great dane, and who's a jerk, please hip him/her to the poop scoop protocol.

Thanks!

He will eat the ones at Burger. Leftbank is ok by me but he is picky and this is driving me crazy. I never noticed that place and apparently it's been by Torico's for a year.


Fantastic.


Burger Eatery does have great food, but it's not the same as a sit/down restaurant and bar.

but maybe it will be, when they finish expanding into Ruthie's old hair salon?

I've been battling them for ages. it gets like Silence of the Lambs in here.

best luck I've had is twofold: Sealing clothes up in those big tupperware containers for the summer, with a metric shit-ton of moth balls. forget the non-toxic organic stuff. that's sending a boy to do a man's job.

and then on the first real cold snap of winter, I pack everything into those same bins, and leave them out on the deck for a few days (or use the freezer, if there's room).

and yes, vacuum the hell out of your closets and drawers, and lay those sticky traps around.

good luck!

Michael's on 6th and 22nd has various poster size frames and you could drop it in one of them and would save a ton on making a custom frame.

everything changed in this community: zoning laws, as extended families packed into one-family neighborhoods. tax base, as the hasids are disproportionately on public assistance (studying the torah for a living doesn't bring in the big bucks). and the school system has been utterly decimated.

I am admittedly biased against fundamentalist anything, and this particular group of fundies has a clear agenda and a rock-solid voting bloc.

if a well-organized group of orthodox muslims had done the same thing to a community, the entire nation would be up in arms.

Pachysandra is great for these spots. it is invasive, though, so best used in a fenced yard/garden, as opposed to a wide-open yard.

I think a lot of you guys are getting capitalism and free enterprise mixed up in the changing neighborhood argument.

Personally, I have no gripe with Rainbow. It's whatever. I also have no gripe with somebody wishing to open something else in that space.

I do have a gripe with people coming in from out of town, acting like buffoons, driving drunk, smashing bottles, and generally being shitheels, then heading home to other towns, leaving me with their broken glass and piss.
When Porta opened, the amount of people that fit that description increased somewhat. South House the same. Talde too to a degree.
This is absolutely part of a changing neighborhood scenario. With successful nightlife comes the crappy byproducts of successful nightlife. You know, jerks.

What I think a lot of you guys here are missing is that it's ok to both want change AND to have reservations about the opening of a bar from an ownership group that specifically courts an out of town client for weekend revelry.

I'm going to wait to see what the theme of the place will be before I get my knickers fully in a twist. If it's something like Porta or South House, cool. I dig the theme of good looking places with solid date night menus that turn into party spots on Friday.
If it's 2Republik, I'll be a little bummed about it. I really don't wanna see people flooding my street looking for pitchers of Coors to wash down their reheated frozen wings. We really truly don't need a place like that on the plaza. It won't add anything to the neighborhood to the people that live here.


This is it EXACTLY.

As I lie here in my home of ten years, listening to the celebratory screaming and Honking that erupted on Newark Ave at 2:30am, I wonder if anyone calling this "progress" lives within 2 blocks of the plaza.

I fear Waze is going to make mornings in DTJC more of a sh*tshow than they already are, as more and more drivers are guided off the turnpike and through downtown to avoid tunnel traffic.

And residents not being the target demo of these new businesses.


this is a well-reasoned and pleasantly-put-forth argument. so of course it's getting shouted down.


Right?? Thanks. Smh at some of these replies.

Not sure about the others, but I'm talking about Newark ave/dtjc of about 10-12 years ago, or even 6-7 years ago (heck I even liked it in the late 90's/early 2000's). Fun and diverse stuff was happening then - more art, more diversity of people, you got to really know your neighbors because we were the ones going out and making stuff happen and going to support the businesses, bars, restaurants. People were friendly to each other and greeted each other on the sidewalks all the time. You could go bar hopping and see friends and familiar faces pretty much everywhere. Hoboken bros stayed in Hoboken. What we had was special and its depressing that the growth trend didn't continue in the vein in which it was headed because that was great and had a lot of variety to offer and potential to get even better.

I spent 17 years living there from '96-2013. As a single woman that whole time there I never felt unsafe. So glad I got out when I did as I really can't stand what's happened to an area that I really use to adore living in and going out in as recently as just 4-5 years ago. Everything is being sold out now. I don't go down there anymore because last I tried a night out there a year ago, it was such a let down. :(


I don't doubt your bad experience but I usually go for a walk down Newark Ave Fri/Sat nights and the pedestrian plaza is nothing like downtown Hoboken. This past weekend it was flooded with kids playing, couples, families, and other people like me wandering around. There was absolutely no lack of diversity you cite (I too remember DTJC 15 years ago). Porta did not have a line of bros with popped collars, and I must have run into 10+ people I know just from living in the neighborhood. Anywhere you go there will be annoying drunk people but I question whether anyone complaining here actually spends time in the area on weekend nights. It's really not bad at all.


will this utopia survive when one of the largest storefronts DOES become bro-topia, I wonder?

The shitty part isn't having to pay the extra fare, but figuring out which subway lines are operating on weekends because the MTA also has a boatload of service disruptions.

I'm sitting on the shuttle from WTC, and we are crawwwwwwling up 6th ave at a snail's pace.

The first stop isn't until 4th street, so here's me missing that movie date.

It's gonna be a long 4 month stretch for PATH riders, but a lucrative one for the MTA, as I don't see many of us doing this more than once.
