Re: Danforth Ave Wonder Bagel on ABC’s What Would You Do

Home away from home


I know why they picked Jersey City. Because Wonder Bagel was available. Honestly, that show has gotten ridiculous. I saw that episode too and a guy doing that in Jersey City makes no sense. Any take out restaurant in Jersey City needs all the customers they can get, and most owners know this, racist or not. The entire New York City area, for that matter, largely feels the same way.

Looks like an upscale, over-priced youth hostel to me. That's the best I could make of it. Or, or a more expensive version of the Hotel Vigilant, one of the last SRO buildings in New York, hopefully without the bedbugs and theoretically nicer.

Co-working spaces are a great concept in today's world, and I've used some myself. Co-living spaces? HELL NO.

Re: Laws firms: Jersey City school board VP owes them more than $25K

"Weiner Law Group, formerly Weiner Lesniak, alleges in its lawsuit, filed on June 28 in Morris County Superior Court, that Thomas owes it $18,122. Jersey City law firm Ehrlich Gaynor, which filed its case here in Hudson County on May 26, says Thomas hasn't paid it $7,066."

"Appel said Thomas has paid $25,000 to a new attorney to fight the suits."

Total amount owed to the law firms - $ 25,188.

Total amount paid to another law firm to defend himself against the two lawsuits - $ 25,000.

Uh, okay. This guy needs a cheaper attorney, as well as a basic education in personal finance, unless I'm missing something here.

All in the name of protecting their free parking and restricting development to prop up their own home values.



Agreed 100%. I don't really care one way or the other about Prato Bakery but having lived in two different neighborhoods of Jersey City, I didn't feel that either NA represented my or even the majority of the neighborhood's interest. They were largely led by loudmouths who couldn't get elected on the city council to save their lives. Instead, they would become leaders of these NAs to get the attention they so desperately craved, showing up at every council meeting and grilling the council members with question after stupid question, making the meetings go four hours or longer when those of us who only want to hear about a few things or ask one question have to go to work tomorrow. They never spoke for me, or the neighborhood, just for themselves and what they thought was good for the neighborhood by virtue of having living in it so long.

In fairness, the NA in one neighborhood did organize social events from time to time and they did a good job of that. That's what NAs should do to help improve the area, but instead they just take up time at city council meetings and think they represent everyone in their neighborhood, when they don't - not legally or in any other way.

Re: Can I withdraw after seller accepts my offer

Did you actually sign anything yet? That is largely what establishes whether and when you can withdraw. Furthermore, people usually make offers contingent on whether or not they qualify for the financing... if they don't the offer is dead.

I strongly suggest you get a real estate lawyer before you go much further. It is well worth it. This is not the place you want to be getting your legal advice with regard to buying real estate.

It almost - almost - feels like a petulant response to being forced to have to put in an elevator....


It probably is a petulant response. It's amazing that an elevator got put in at all, despite there being a lawsuit forcing the PA to do so, because if they didn't comply with the terms of the verdict, what is the court going to do? Jail the entire PA governing board? Cut off state funding? There was no real way to enforce this verdict.

The PA claimed that the "new" entrance on Marin and Columbus was not really new but had been designed years before, before any ADA laws existed and was just an old entrance being reopened. How they could not find a way to accommodate handicapped people when the new entrance was built just shows how rotten they are, but I guess they figured they had a good chance of getting away with it, and they almost did.

I suspect you are NOT wrong. It was only a matter of time before a company with deep pockets decided to face down the city council and make it clear to them that their actions were completely nuts. I totally get wanting to support "mom and pop" shops and "shopping local" but forcing that by artificially manipulating the market is not the way to go about it. If the city is so serious about supporting local mom and pop, they can find ways to enact incentives that can help level the playing field.


Not to mention that 70 Hudson Street, or just about any waterfront retail location, is a place the mom and pop stores could afford anyway, nor is it a place where you go to shop at mom and pop stores.

Well, for whatever it's worth, you could make a police report, and mention whatever details you know from 6 years ago. If enough people are being hit and enough details are known, the police may do something. Yes, it was just a $3 pot but I am a strong believer in the "broken windows" theory (look it up on Wikipedia if you are unfamiliar).

I didn't think you were allowed to bring cakes or pies on flights anymore, as you can supposedly hide a bomb in them. I sympathize with this family to some degree, but couldn't he have just ordered a cake from a bakery in Las Vegas and picked it up there? The larger casinos in Las Vegas have EVERYTHING in them, and I'm sure they'd be happy to make one exactly the way you want and even have it delivered to your room. It can be pricey sometimes, but I'm sure its cheaper than what he had to spend on a last-minute tickets to United.

Depends on what you're looking to buy. If the area where CVS was looking to locate was already saturated with drugstores, I guess it doesn't matter. Still, I don't like local government or anyone else deciding what kind of shopping is best for me. The capitalist system is far from perfect, but this is one area where government intervention is unnecessary and oversteps what consumers prefer. If you hate the chain stores so much, keep supporting the local stores as much as possible and don't go to the chains. But don't deny me where I want to shop.

Thanks.

Ah, that would explain why Two Boots got so riled up about this space restriction, as they have 12 locations and are considered a "chain", yet had no problem forcing the "local" food trucks away from Grove Street. Love their hypocrisy but that's another story. I haven't been in there since all that nonsense started. Their pizza was mediocre at best anyway.

Honestly, I couldn't care less about CVS being blocked from Jersey City, their stores were always a joke in my experience, having lived in the Washington, DC area before, but given the fact that Walgreens has bought up every chain that CVS didn't (including Duane Reade), the area needs the competition. Furthermore, I don't care for the local government intervening in the free market system, thinking it knows what's best for us.

Re: Yet another pit bull attack. Time for regulation of fighting dogs?

Home away from home
Home away from home


Yet again, we hear a dog attack story in Jersey City where the dog wasn't licensed. Aside from the attack being a horrible incident, the lack of a dog license seems to be a common occurrence in Jersey City as well. A friend of mine was bitten in a less-brutal attack in Jersey City some years ago (not a pitbull) and THAT dog wasn't licensed either. What's the deal? Are all these dog owners ignorant? Is it too much of a hassle to get a license? When people get a new dog, is getting a license just an afterthought?

I suppose the silver lining to this cloud is that the lack of a dog license here is one more thing they can nail the guy on. He clearly knew about the dog license requirement having failed to appear in court about it before. I hope he owns the home he lives in, the title should be given the victims' family.

According to www.rome2rio.com, a useful website for this sort of thing, there is no direct bus all the way. The best bet would be to take a NJ Transit bus to the Port Authority, then transfer to the NYC Airporter, which goes to LaGuardia from the Port Authority (it also stops at Grand Central station as well). That's the only way you can get from Jersey City to LaGuardia with a minimum of transfers, unless you're prepared to fork it over for a cab, car service or Uber.

Because it's Craigslist, that's why. Total haven for fraudsters. Where have you been? Not to say I haven't had a good experience on Craigslist - once used to find some movers as well as to hitch a ride, and it was fine. But if you fall for one of those advertisements where somebody asks you to wire the money as a deposit on the place in advance, you've got no one to blame but yourself.

It's a 3rd party energy re-seller, and yes it's a total scam. Your electric and gas might be cheaper for a month or two after signing up, then your bill will skyrocket but you're locked into a long-term contract. There's a million of these re-sellers out there, most of them are pretty shady and if Liberty Energy or any other re-seller comes to your door again, I suggest you politely slam it in their faces, and call the police if necessary.

This is the grown up version of the kids who sold magazines door-to-door, often at double the normal subscription price, under the guise of fundraising and often hopped up on drugs. It made no sense and I slammed my door in these peoples' face too.
