for the past 2 years cheapie tix have been $75. So they doubled the price this year for Neil Patrick and a couple Alicia Keys tunes.

I dunno...

It is fun, but they only sell their own booze at 100 a bottle so that plus new ticket price equals a pricey outing.

people fly thru that light daily. What drives me crazy as a pedestrian is that the crosswalk signals are not synchronized with the traffic lights so if you are walking north on Varick where it switches to Coles you have NO way of knowing if you can cross unless you got there before the light change and pushed the crosswalk button. It is disgraceful that JC can't synchronize crosswalks like every other first world city does...

Re: Dixon Leasing Cheating JC out of Taxes with the help of Rebecca Sysmes

How is anyone surprised by this? It's the story of America, the bigger you get the more influence you buy.

Ultimately anyone will be able to look up Dixon properties and see if they are paying their fair share post-reval. They should be on the higher end anywhere since they do above average renovations.

They may be able to kick the can on taxes, but I really don't see how they can dodge the Reval... If they do dodge it, then show up at City Hall with pitchforks...

the view in any direction from Maxwell Alley leaves a lot to be desired. They've been gutting the building for awhile now, it's gonna be pretty big 2500sf or so.

Parking is tough around there so I guess they figure people will walk over from the Path.

I'm wondering if the JC bar/restaurant boom is getting ahead of itself. Lotta places in the works. Time will tell...

If the small time thieves start getting nervous about homeowners using security cams and such a lot of this QOL stuff will be lowered. Since there are no beat cops walking around, this falls on residents....

Yeah I've got some old gear in need on handles. Gotta work thru some green black locust rounds before they petrify. Everything I've read says new steel tools are disposable at best. May try and DIY if there isn't an artist close by for this sort of thing.

Not sure if there are many preppers living in JC, but does anyone know where I can get a new handle installed on axe/sledgehammer?

I've called hardware stores and they all can sell the handles but no one can install. Guess it is kind of a dying art...

having spent a lot of time at LSC with kids I wouldn't bet on a big spillover impact into DTJC restaurants. LSC is an auto based destination. People drive in from the burbs and run their kids around for 3 hours and then pack it up and head home in their minivan or SUV. I think the odds of the average user making the extra drive to DTJC to eat are slim.

Re: Buying to live in Bergen-Lafayette a good idea?

Go drive around after 11PM and get a feel. Better to do on warmer days as that's when the hooligans are out. See how comfortable you feel.

I'd also go walk the neighborhood and ask people what their living experience has been. See if there are any neighborhood groups. Better yet, ask a police officer what his take is on the area.

I had to do grand jury duty a few years back and we heard 10-20 cases a day. It didn't take long to get a sense of where most of the crime was taking place. You heard the same street names over and over.

Re: Recess at schools

Home away from home


they don't get enough recess. Teachers/Administrators view it as a hassle (accidents, falls, etc) and as such do the bare minimum to get the kids out.

Our experience was that kids couldn't go out until after every kid had finished their lunch. This drove me crazy as it penalized kids who ate quickly so they could get outside and run around.

Every study under the sun shows that longer recess correlates to better classroom focus/test scores/etc...

Couple points - all along Newark Ave/Grove Street there are apartments. Furthermore amplified music travels and that is a source of QOL frustration for those on residential blocks close to the overlay zones.

Yes Newark is commercial. But there is a big difference between retail stores and Restaurants in Name Only (which are really bars) that stay open til 2AM.

No question the original sin is the Restaurant Overlay. It wasn't well thought out and no one put much thought into the unintended consequences. Couple that with JC's inability to enforce laws on the book (think noise ordinances) and it is no surprise QOL is an issue around these establishments.

It's gonna get worse as the restaurants are going further from Pedestrian Plaza into areas that most would consider residential.

Every applicant claims to be a "quaint neighbor friendly" restaurant. Please. It's much easier to make fast money selling booze to the broboken drunks than serving gourmet fare to the foodies.

It's really sad to think that huge Hoboken style bars are the best JC could come up with to replace all the 99 cent stores. Blown opportunity in my book...

The Broboken type bars have not raised property values. The NYC/Brooklyn spillover has raised property values. The marginal property OWNER in DTJC is not doing shots at 2AM at Porta
