This is a hilarious string.

I tried to join the board last year (at the time you didn't have to be a resident) because I was thinking of moving there. It was about the time that rental listings were dropped from the board.

I sent a slightly amusing email and suggested that JCLIST could fill that service, and asking for membership. I got back a scorching email from James that he did not like JCLIST or some of it's members (who he named in the email) and denied me membership.

He sounded like a nazi webmaster from hell. But no great loss.

Don't argue with cops. You were wrong but you argued that a bunch of non-terrorist looking people (?) should be treated with kid gloves with open containers of beer in a state park. You broke the law. You pissed off the cop. Get over yourself and pay the damn ticket.

Agree with most of these posts. From another perspective -

Gov Corzine -

This is going to be a tough election for you. The economy and the changes for New Jersey will be blamed on you, even though they resulted from years of republican lack of oversight in the financial markets.

What is going to make it tougher is that all of these indicted public officials are democrats. If they - particularly the crowd in Jersey City, but others as well - have not resigned by the end of the summer, you are going to be out of office soon. Please step up and use your position and connections to help get the right thing done. These democrats are going to be pinned to you like the tail on a donkey. A statement isn't enough. They need to resign.

This is so far down the list of things that need attention in Jersey City..... It's too small to ruin the skyline, it was picked (for better or worse) by victims families, and construction has already started. It certainly is not the 'vagina monument' in Bayonne. Waste of money to challenge legally at this point. To add Corzine into the mix is just reaching.........

Give it up and pay attention to the really important issues going on around you.

My neighbors dragged me there last night - after reading some of the comments here - well........

It's not the Sandbar II. I loved the bar - it was a grown up place - a diverse crowd. Drinks ok. The building is stunning - not fully complete but still stunning. We sat and ordered most of the appetizer menu to share.

The good: Crabcake - spicy and still could taste the sweet crab. Excellent. Calamari with a spicy sweet sour sauce - excellent. Linguini with clams - perfect - not oily, but clammy, perfectly spiced, garlicky, served hot. Everything was pretty much at serving temperature. The owner working the room - always nice.

The not so good. Razor clams - skip it. Rubber band-like. Yech. Bread - desperately needs work. Guys - hook up with Pecoraro's please. Or TomKat. And get it on the table before taking orders.

So - we will go back. This is what a soft opening is. The service, while not perfect (one dish got lost in the kitchen) was pretty good. Enough servers, some obviously still learning, but working hard and eager to please. Water refills without asking, plates removed, new plates and tableware arriving when they should.

Not perfect - yet - but a welcome addition to the neighborhood. They are changing the menu and training the staff. I wonder if some of the really nasty comments were fired ex-employees? Anyway, if you hate it, you hate it. Me, I'd rather eat dinner there than in a hotel restaurant any time.

Good luck guys.

Re: Just announced-JC Council Pres, Fire Chief and Hoboken Mayoer arrested with 11 other local Pols

Dozens of arrests are taking place across New Jersey this morning and many public officials -- including the mayors of Hoboken and Secaucus, the deputy mayor of Jersey City -- are among those being taken into custody.

FBI and IRS agents are making the roundups all across the state in what is being described as one of the biggest investigations of its kind in Jersey's scandal-plagued history.

It appears to be a corruption related investigation but justice department and FBI spokesmen would not commenting on the details this morning.

Arrests and searches are underway across Jersey City, Secaucus and numerous Hudson and Bergen county locations.

In past years, New jersey has seen more than 100 corruption-related arrests of public officials. No word on the specific charges against those being rounded up today. A press conference is expected later today.

Among those arrested this morning were Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano and Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, authorities said. Several area rabbis and other community leaders including Jersey City Council President Mariano Vega were brought into custody in connection with this case, officials said.

If any of you Listers know anyone at the JCPOBA, they should have a link on their website to allow donations to be charged to debit or credit cards - the news stations include them in their stories and technically it can't be that hard to do - even the tiniest charities have them. If you're a website techie, maybe you could do it for them.

This fund is a worthwhile effort and deserves to be as successful as possible.

Now this is interesting.

The Le Grand Blue wiki page now only has the photo - all that data was removed. Apparently today. The ship headed up the East River this morning. And I don't see it on the harbor website either.....

Conspiracy? Russian mafia? Probably not but really strange.

There is a good sized ship (not pleasure boat) just off of the harbor at LSC that has been there for at least a week. Blue with white superstructure, I think. Anyone know what it is? Just curious.

Block Island in September is fabulous. Rent a bike or a scooter, stay in a turn of the century hotel. Eat lobster and more lobster. Take ferry from New London ct or Point Judith RI (Galilee). RI runs more often and it's a shorter trip. Stop in Mystic Seaport on the way back and climb around on a whaling ship. Then stop at Frank Pepe's in New Haven for a white clam and bacon pizza - the world's best. Have fun

This place is worth finding - they close by 3. Be prepared to wait in line a few minutes. Today I got:

A quart of chicken meatball soup - with bread (better than mom's)

A small (huge) roast port sandwich with cheese, sweet onions and spicy sauce (enough for 2 people)

A small loaf of cinnamon bread (or a really big roll) loaded with cinnamon but not too sweet

2 bottles of coke

total - just under $15.

Breakfast egg sandwiches with pepperoni or spicy sausage are gigantic and delicious.

Has anybody tried their hot dishes?

Owner of Downtown Jersey City dogs accused in attacks due back in court today
by Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal
Friday March 06, 2009, 12:35 PM

A date could be set in municipal court this afternoon for the trial to decide if two pet dogs tied to several Downtown Jersey City attacks will be euthanized under the state Vicious Dog Law.

The South African boerboels' owner, Susan Kolb, has asked for a trial to defend the animals and keep them from being killed.

At a hearing last Friday she told Municipal Court Judge Nesle Rodriguez that she would be represented by a new lawyer today.

The proceedings have been delayed several times as Kolb's previous attorney waited to get documents he needed in the discovery process.

Today's pre-trial hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Jersey City Justice Complex, 365 Summit Ave., off Journal Square.

The allegations and Kolb's explanations of them in an interview with The Jersey Journal are as follows:

Jonathan L. Rodriguez, 24, of Brunswick Street, was injured Jan. 19 at Washington Street and Christopher Columbus Drive. He said Kolb unleashed the dogs and they ran across the street and tore into his arm. Kolb said the dogs got away from her.

James Joyce, 24, said he needed six stitches after being attacked Jan. 9 by the dogs at Warren and Morris streets. Kolb said Joyce was not injured.

On Sept. 21, at the park at Greene and Essex streets, police said the two dogs knocked down a woman and the 6-month-old child she was carrying. Kolb said it was an enclosed park and she let the dogs loose because she thought it was empty.

After The Jersey Journal published a story about the dogs in January, law enforcement received a number of calls from residents telling of other incidents that may have involved the dogs.

The male dog weighs about 160 pounds, the female about 100 pounds.

They were impounded after the last incident and have been at held at the Liberty Humane Society near Liberty State Park.

Kolb has complained that officials at the Humane Society have barred her from visiting the dogs and the judge has requested that a representative of the organization explain why.

Someone told me Ox was the best place to eat in JC. So I went with some friends last Friday night and guess what? Ox is really really excellent. Food was great - especially loved the Oxtail appetizer, mussels, scallops, chicken - everything.

It's such a small front on Newark Ave - I've gone right by it many times without noticing.

Some people are so stupid it's a wonder they are still alive.

New York Presbyterian is one of the best hospitals in the country. I see Sandra Hall-Ross, and I really like her.

Though no one wants to hear this, you should pick and visit a doctor when you are well, not when you have an emergency. When they know you and your history they have a better shot at giving you great care. Dr Hall-Ross even saw me once when I got my calendar screwed up and went on the wrong day.

Anyway it's a schlep up there - 68th and York, but we live in a place where a short train ride will get us to some of the best medical care in the country.

Perceptive, Atsushi. Didn't you start another thread on the trouble you have making friends? Atsushi, the problem may not be the place you live. I know you had issues making friends in suburbia - something tells me it isn't going to get much better here.

I ordered delivery for lunch. It arrived warm, so I threw it in a 450 oven for 3 minutes - then it was hot. Tho I would rather have a warm tasty pizza - burn marks rock - than a hot gunky one. And most of the pizza in JC is gunky (gooey nasty and yecky with a definite wet component). Sorry.

Anyway, good ingredients, nice balance, crust gooood.

Finally somebody that can cook a thin crust pizza.....

Welcome to the neighborhood John's Pizza.

Although the church is beautiful, unique, etc. etc., what should be done with it? Just to restore it to it's former glory and use it as some kind of museum is not often feasible. This is often an issue in cities where these beautiful old buildings are common.

It needs a use to fund it's continued existence, or it's just a drain on some ngo's funding. So is it a problem remodeling it into something else? Does it have to be a church - an empty church?

I used to work for a Fortune 500 company and I was included in a group that decided what nonprofit requests got funding. This kind of restoration without reuse means a forever commitment of funding from somebody.

So what could it be used for? And is remodeling into something else so bad?
