Make Greenville its own entity. It is a black eye and needs to be focused on.

I was going to try this place out today, but I could not read the website menu - it was too smal and blurred. If anyone does stop in there ask them to fix the web - it will help business. I want to try it, but rarely order anything I don't get delivered.

Is there anyone in town that compares Dani's Pizza in Kew Gardens? Just had their pizza again and it was amazing... I want that experience in JC.

Trash is trash no matter what color or ethnicity. If you are defending a group simply by the color of their skin, that is racism too.

The situation is loud, obnoxious people gather and create problems in the neighborhood - does it matter what color they are??? No, it doesn't. They should be taken care of by the authorities.

Racism goes both ways.

JCH: Food improvements
#4

Based on the news of a Mission Burrito in JCH I ordered. Quick delivery and amazing food.

Any other recommendations? I can recommend Rasoi over on Newark - great Indian food (try the Chicken Vindaloo - ask for spicy if you want it).

Any recommendations would be appreciated. I tend to only order from the same 4 or five places, but would like more.

Re: Wave of gentrification that leapfrogged the Hudson has reached new heights - Jersey City Heights

I live over near Pershing Field - do you know what that phone number is? I call and sometimes the police show up. Sometimes they don't. Maybe I am calling the wrong number.

I am not the type to complain. we even accepted it for a while until every guest we had over told me how they could not believe the noise. Other than two houses, my neighborhood is very quiet. If they handed out noise pollution fines I think the noise would stop immediately.

Let's keep improving JCH. Let's start by being respectful of other people and we are off to a great start.

Bring in the yuppies.
Bring in anyone that respects others' property.
Bring in anyone that does not crank terrible music until 2am every weekend, even after the cops have stopped by several times that summer.
Bring in anyone that will invest money into their home and neighborhood.
Bring in anyone that wants a better place to live and is willing to try to make that happen.
Bring in anyone that does not think the streets are meant for tossing trash and hocking snot.
Bring in anyone that is willing to fight for change.

I HATE Starbucks, but if bringing in people that want to see the area flourish (for whatever reason) leads to more corporate businesses/restaurants rather than the bodegas and poor quality restaurants then bring it on. In time it will lead to higher end unique restaurants.

I live here in the Heights. I like it. I don't like the inconsiderate neighbors that think they are in their homeland (where ever that may be), the scary figures that I often see around at night, the roach filled restaurants (cafe at the corner of Manhattan and Central - first week in town had breakfast there - terrible service and two roaches ran across the counter and onto my plate - I have not been back).

I want to see it flourish. I want my children to be safe. I don't want to have to call the cops on EVERY summer night so my family can go to sleep before 2am (the music starts at noon, ends at 2am - the screaming over the music goes on throughout - luckily there is cold weather or they would be outside cranking music all year). The Heights has the potential, but without some money moving in you will have to deal with all the things that must be overlooked.

I just spoke with the owner and was told they will be open THIS Friday. June 19th is the start of something good in JC. I can't wait. Call before to confirm, but it SHOULD be open.

That is of great help - I will be using this number for sure. The longer the eyesore sits there, the more rewarding it is for the vandal.

Thanks to all those that provided me with info to contact local groups/politicians - I already made a few calls.

I wouldlove to hear more, your success stories/failures while attempting to make change in the community.

I am not downtown, I am in the Heights. Any recommendations for groups up here? I have been in touch with local politicians and community leaders - discussed the problems at length, but I want to go beyond that. I would love to be part of a community watch group.

I am fairly new to the area (two years) and last year my wife was expecting, this year was focused on raising my daughter. Now that she is a little older and parenting is not as new and scary I am figuring out how to use my time to make the community better (among other things). So this is my real entry to the world of community work.

JC is a big place and Heights, downtown, Journal Square pr whatever area you live in, we are all neighbors and each of out individual issues will have some effect on the others.

I have called the cops a half dozen times on noisy neighbors (3-4am LOUD parties) and someone trespassing - I cannot see that ever leading to "getting busted" for a nuiance calls. If it does and I get scolded for trying to keep the neighborhood more peaceful and safe, then there are bigger issues here.

I like the responses so far.

what about a solution to the graffiti - I understand we need to get the youth off the streets but there will always be the strays that tag the area - can we develop a cleaning organization and or hotlines to report taggers? A new sign goes up and days later a new tag is written, scratched or painted on it.

Same goes for litter - only animals live intheir own filth. Is there any place we can call to report a chronic litterer? I have seen people unwrap a candy bar and then purposely walk to the curb to throw out their trash as if it was a trash bin. I heard that homeowners were once responsible for litter on their property, if they did not clean it the would be fined. Is legislation like that being discussed at this time. a) it would make money for the city, b) would hold the citizens responsible to for being part of the solution, c) may lead to less street litter - less streetsweepers. Maybe it is a dream, but I never had a littering problem in any comunity I lived in until now. The JCPD could also walk the main roads and hand out fines to litterers, even if it is only a couple times a month - once peple find out JC is cracking down on litter there will be more thought before tossing a wrapper ont he ground. Is there any solution you can come up with? I want to write to the politicians running for office for this election, but would like to do so with the most refined solutions I can come up with.

"thanks for playing"??? I had you pegged on your first post, now it is confirmed. Biscuit, you are the lazy guest at the BBQ that does not bring anything to the party, drinks all the free beer he can, eats all the free food he can and then complains later that the party was a bust.

Stick around, just offer something.

If you do not like what I have to say then point out the flaws, but coming back every day and saying this is a waste of time is a COMPLETE waste of everyone's time.

If anyone has any ideas please post and I and others (maybe even jcbiscuit) will try to be constructive and hopefully make JC a better place.

What would you do without me? Exactly what you have been doing... nothing. People love to sit by and watch while things get worse and worse. Instead of posting a blanket replay to my comment, try adding to it or adding some details as to what you would like to do.

I posted because I wanted to open a forum to help fix the issues, but I guess discussing anything is even too much work. Post snide comments and then head back to Twitter.

I did not say lie to the cops, simply do not wait some thug with a gun to shoot before you make a call - prevent, don't react.

The police are here to serve and protect, not take reports after an incident. If people are seeing drug deals as they continue to post over and over - CALL THE POLICE, take pictures, send them to the newspaper, write down license plate numbers - act, don't complain.

What is your solution? The plice are the first line of defense. What did you expect me to suggest, vigilante type actions.

Start with calling the police, not complaining on a board that you don't like others' suggestions while you sit on your hands.

Fight Back JC - Let's clean this place up, it is not impossible

I have lived in JCH for about 2 years now. I love it. What I do not love are scumbags and trash that do any or all of the following. IF SOMEONE IS A PROBLEM CALL THE COPS:
1) throw their trash on the ground - I do not care what country you come from, in this country that is not tolerated (or should not be). Hold your trash, put it in trash can.

2) tagging or graffiti - these lowlifes should have their hands glued shut. Spray painting buildings and homes is bad enough, but spraying a landmark with a tag is just play classless and disrespectful.

3) intimidating or harassing regular citizens. No mother, senior citizen or anyone else for that matter should have to hear curse words and trash talk when just walking in the park.

4) loud and obnoxious music - I can sit in my backyard with ten friends - eating, drinking and having fun - no one else is affected. Sadly, some people have to constantly scream every conversation and play very loud music late into the night (4am).

5) drug dealing and gangs - any actions like these should end in prison. "Yes we can!" Not if we have trash focused more on ruining this city than bettering themselves. Black, white, latino, asian, middle eastern - in a gang then you are trash and should turn yourself in for your prison sentence, it is coming eventually.

I am sure there are more things, but this says enough.

My recommendation is call the cops before there is an incident. If you must, stretch the truth to get the cops there to put people in order. If the scum of the earth feel that they are being watched at all times they will move elsewhere to conducting their shady dealings.

Let's take out the trash.

Another step in the right direction - a brand new pizzeria, now a new bar - awesome. Now we need a cafe... a REAL cafe - clean, GOOD coffee, english spoken fluently - nice enough to sit in a sip on a cup of espresso - oh yeah, NOT Starbucks, but right now I would take one just to build neighborhood improvement momentum.

Has anyone been to New Moon yet?
What beers do they have on tap?
How is the atmosphere?
What is the clientele like?

Please let me know I need a hang out in my new hometown.

Parking Court Changes - Help me out please!

I know the times have changed for parking court, but I was wondering if anyone knows if the judges changed along with them.

There used to be two judges, the nice sympathetic one (has mustache, thinning hair) and the not so nice one that wouldn't even let a husband represent his wife.

Does anyone know what the name of the nice judge is? Is he still working parking court? And most importantly WHAT DAYS AND TIMES?

Thanks for all your help. Like many people I work int he city and I am willing to take the time off to fight a ticket, but I cannot waste time if the judge is just going to keep the fine.

Thanks

I made my first trip to Tania's in hopes of finding some good Polish food and much to my dismay the place was closed even though I arrived within business hours. Also, the phone number is disconnected. Is the only Polish restaurant in JC (that I know of) gone for good?

Can someone do some sluething and find out?

Are there ANY other good Polish - Czech restaurants in JC?
