Went 2 weeks ago. The place is great fun. Walking path leads to various stations where dinos are located (motion and sound really enhances the experience).
We spent the better part of 4 hours (watching the shows and exploring the paths.

I have to agree, been going here since at least the mid 90's…Definitely great classic diner food. If I remember correctly one of the diner’s claims to fame is the old Cherry Coke commercial (I believe this is where it was filmed).

I have to agree...This was a great ride (I was in the 1st group of 50+ riders).

This is the only event (I'm aware of) where we can ride throughout JC and not be overly concerned about car traffic.

There were 3 stops in total:
1 Culver & Westside - we probably could have done without this stop as I think it was unplanned and meant to wait for the entire group
2 Lincoln Park
3 North & Palisades - seemed to be more of a traffic jam rather than a planned stop

Minus the 45 mins or so in stops, I thought it was pretty well organized

Ralph’s is an institution!
They’re good at what they do, quick and cheap.
Usually they have the jacks right on the street waiting so when you pull up they’re ready to take whichever tire off and work on it. Never had a problem with them.

Update
Decided to go with Capitol. I think it was Feb, by the time both our schedules were clear.

Long story short, GREAT JOB!
- took about 1/2 day to complete
- laid down a new roof
- been through quite a few rain storms since the new roof and no leaks...Yay

Nothing but great things to say about Capitol

I'm currently getting bids for my flat roof:
1. Capitol - arrived when scheduled, provided an estimate that seems reasonable (although I did have to chase them for a few days to get the estimate)

2. Simpson - Called an hour after the scheduled appointment and requested for a later time, then never showed up for the later appointment. based on this, they're out

3. Bayonne roofing - to be determined (appointment is tomorrow)

4. "side job" roofer - this guys works for a roofing company and provided an estimate (as a side job). Seems very knowledgeable, although I'm concerned about the warranty since it'll be a side job and not through the company he works for.

I'll keep you all posted as the progress of this project continues.

Re: Drivers Must Come to Full Stop at NJ Crosswalks

The new law is for motorist and pedestrians alike...

"Motorists who violate the law face a $200 fine, plus court costs, and 2 points on their license. They can also be subject to 15 days of community service and insurance surcharges.

Pedestrians may also be cited under state law for failing to use due care when crossing. The law requires them to obey pedestrian signals and use crosswalks at signalized intersections as well as yield the right of way to traffic if they are not crossing within a crosswalk or at an intersection. Failure to comply with the law carries a $54 fine, plus court costs."

Here's a quote rigth from the website:

The Authority also provides for a drop-off center, where residents can dispose of tires and other debris as deemed necessary by the Authority.

Such must be disposed of Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM at our Route 440 facility. Proof of residence is required.

Good luck.

Re: Society Hill Condos - Feedback request
#27

Although I don't live in Society Hill, I am a lifetime resident of Jersey City, I have family and friends that live in each of the divisions and am looking for a property in SH.

Simplegal - Society Hill is a great subdivision. You're pretty safe considering the only things bordering you are the Newark Bay, Route 440 and a strip mall (Nearly no traffic in your community unless they live there or are visiting someone who lives there). It's comprised of 3 major sections;
> Society Hill 1 - condo's varying from 1 bedrooms to 3 bedrooms, some duplex some single floor gardens
> Society Hill 2 - townhouses varying from 2 to 3 bedrooms all with garages
> Droyer's Point - Newest phase (less than 5 years old). Townhouses varying from 2 to 3 bedrooms all with garages.

JadedJC is correct in mentioning the entire site is built ontop of an old chromium site, but that being said so is most of Jersey City (and Bayonne for that matter!). As it relates to Society Hill, here's a quick tid bit that mentions it http://www.njcu.edu/Programs/jchistor ... /S_Pages/Society_Hill.htm
Also, I would imagine the EPA would have stopped the project back in the 80's if it wasn't safe.

I'm not positive about the details of the bus stop. I do know that the shuttle definitely services Droyer's Point, not positive about SH1 or 2.

Hope this helps.

Here's 2 other option.

Jason L. - (201) 927-5641
- He's an auto technician for a European car company during the day, and does side work at nights and weekends from his garage.
- He's just recently completed two major services on my vehicles (30K on a European SUV and a 60K on a Japanese car)


Ding's Auto Repair Center
1780 Kennedy Blvd
Jersey City, NJ 07305
(201) 333-1211
- I use this auto service when Jason isn't available. Honest, reliable and inexpensive.


Good luck

Based on your vicinity (between the Heights and Journal Square):
Meals - Fiesta Grill (http://fiestagrill.net/newark.htm)
Dessert - Philippine Bread House (http://www.yelp.com/biz/philippine-bread-house-jersey-city)

Enjoy...If all goes well, you'll be hooked and will go to these places even without your friend.

Computer recycling?

So I'm searching around for a place to discard 2 old computers...
- JCIA says they won’t be able to take them until April '09 (when they have their next event)
- Staples offers a drop of service, but they charge you (I think) $10 per computer

Does anyone know where I can dispose of these in a responsible manner?
