Sorry, I_heart_JC, I remember those days since I worked in NYC, I had to pass Times Square almost on a daily basis in the during the 1960s. It did have burlesque and other sexual attractions. The movie, "Midnight Cowboy," captured the seediness of Times Square well. Mayor Guiliani cleaned up Times Square by closing down the sex attractions. He totally transformed the area.


again, if you're equating Times Square of 50 years ago with the burlesque scene of today, you are completely out of touch.

such an awful idea. study after study shows that more roads = more cars on the road. this bridge will ease traffic for a short time, before commuters go, "oh hey, a new way to drive!" and get back into their cars. downtown will be a clusterf*ck, and there's no putting that genie back into the bottle.

My gang has had consistently great care with Dr. Buchholtz at JC Animal Hospital on Westside.

Even though I live a block away from Downtown Vet, I had one too many unpleasant experiences with Dr. Tudor to even consider going back. It's worth the time and the expense (of a Lyft or Zipcar) to haul my crew all the way over to Westside.

I've got no dog in this fight, as I'm a renter. but I do feel for my long-time neighbors who planned on retiring here, and will now probably have to sell. good for them for getting squillions on a home they bought for very little, decades ago. but it's a big bummer to have to uproot yourself in your golden years, just because you are now sitting on a hot property.

likewise, if my landlord has to double my rent, he'll lose a known tenant who's been trouble-free for years. instead he'll have to deal with someone new, who might make extra demands in line with market-rate rent, yet he'll have no extra $$ in the bank in exchange for that headache.

yes, of course he can sell. but he too was planning on retiring here, so please refer to paragraph one of my post.


A couple of thoughts:
- the hypothetical owner of your post would have many more options than just “will have to sell”. Among them: reverse mortgage, HE loan, HE LOC, etc.

- no renter would see his rent double because his landlord's taxes have doubled. That’s sheer misunderstanding of the numbers involved. Take the extreme example of a homeowner going from 20K to 40K. If that landlord had a single tenant, and he wanted to pass on the entirety of the tax increase onto the tenant, that means charging an additional $1,666/month. That’s only a doubling if the tenant is only paying 1,666/mo today, which seems unlikely for that kind of property. That would be an easy one to fight in housing court.


$1666/month would not double my rent, it's true. but can you name anyone in your social circle who could handle that kind of increase, even if it's only 50%?

we just dropped off four(!) old printers for recycling at Best Buy, and got four coupons for 15% off a new printer.

If so, I like it.
Only thing I don't like is TPK would get that $ rather than JC.


No moving of tolls, just new "express lane" type readers past the Columbus exit that catch the tags as they pass so they know when the cars get to the HT who used the 12th st ramp and not LSP or Columbus.


drivers can simply remove their EZ pass after going through the 14C toll, and replace it before going through the Holland.

This is a troll post. It's like 15 minutes to Harrison. 15 minutes back to Journal Square, and it's not an easy transfer -- you might even have to exit the system to get back in.


yeah I read that and thought the "3" was surely a typo, as it's closer to 30 minutes roundtrip.

City Diner, really? The food is bland (if not gross) and some of the staff are an olive short of a pizza.

Then again, not a fan of several of the JC establishments listed here. Orale was overpriced, and I cannot abide places that make it so loud you cannot hear who you are dining with (Porta, South House - though I must say I enjoyed the food at SH)

Personally, I'm a fan of Amelia's, White Star, Satis, Light Horse Tavern. Mantra for Indian, Taste of North China for Chinese.

Yet to find a Mexican joint that I like. Three Coffee Beans has come closest (delivery), but that's hit and miss.


Agreed on City Diner. (Why can't Jersey City have an actual diner-diner?) South House is actually pretty good on like a Tuesday. You can hear your companions, the staff is friendly, and their drinks are surprisingly well-crafted. Taqueria will always be our go-to Mexican. The little outpost on Grove/Bay is always crowded, with good reason. But if you can belly up to the 5-seat bar, you'll be glad you did. And we've had a couple of great breakfasts at that Mexican place on the corner of Barrow and Bright.

Can anyone explain the logic behind the elevator at Grove Street? I'm actually surprised this hasn't come up before.

To call the elevator, one must push - AND THEN HOLD - the button, until the elevator arrives.

Once on the damn thing, the passenger must push and hold the button until the elevator reaches its destination. Let go, and you're stuck between floors. And it's not just pushing the button, you really have to lean into it, hard.

It is an awkward maneuver for the able-bodied. I cannot imagine how an elderly person with a walker or a wheelchair-bound passenger could comfortably accomplish this.

I used the elevator because I had my hands full of heavy luggage. Oh hey, there's a button I need to press and hold my full body weight into. Handy.

In typical Port Authority manner, they've taken something simple, and made it complicated.

And how is this even ADA-compliant?

There is a brand-new building at 222 First Street that was advertised as Luxury Rentals. One year after opening, nobody has moved in, and all of the units are listed online as short-term vacation rentals.

DeeDee's Lofts at Grove



It's the capitalist society we live in and the free market. Deal with it. Obviously the owner thought it was more lucrative to rent the units out as an AirBnB......
As long as they pay all the necessary taxes and follows the zoning rules, I see no problems with this.


it's even more lucrative to run a bar. maybe I can turn my place into a speakeasy?

this developer got a permit - and tax rate - for an apartment building, and he opened a hotel. his neighbors expected new neighbors, and instead got an endless parade of transients.

JC needs to crack down on this like NYC has, and hold Airbnb to its original intent: facilitating rental of one's spare room or temporarily vacant home.

I received a letter from PSE&G stating that there is a problem in our building that requires them to shut off one of their meters, and since all of their attempts to gain access have failed, they plan to cut power and gas to the entire building.

I imagine this is due to my neighbor not paying her bill, and then not answering the door. she's a bit....intense, so I want no part of this, and resent PSE&G putting the onus on my household to give them access to her meter.

I'm letting the management company handle this. but how is it legal for a utility company to threaten to turn off the power and gas of customers who pay their bills on time??

if you don't receive enough packages to warrant the expense, they'll accept them for about $3-$5, depending on size.
