For WTC commuters shut out at Grove:
Take the Newark train back to Harrison not JSQ. JSQ is frequently as bad as Grove now and Harrison is only 3 minutes away and frequently much more civilized. It's pretty annoying to take the train backward to JSQ and still get shut out of one or two trains. Particularly between 8 and 9am.


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.

I used to do that on hot summer late evenings from 9th Street - why wait for the same train to come back down 15 minutes later packed full of people? Ride in comfort.


Yeah this is my late-night go-to maneuver, as well.

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.

true. that was me jumping to conclusions. regardless of the source of their frustration, for a major utility company to take it out (or at least threaten to) on customers who've always been in good standing is, to me, just outrageous.

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 establish a good relationship with a neighborhood shop, you can always ask to have packages delivered there instead. it's been much more convenient to pick up a package a block away versus having to drive to Secaucus as I did in the past.


or get a box at Post Net on Grove Street. that has saved me a whole lot of hassle.

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

Also, sometimes they collect as early as 11pm. so if you get home late and don't see anything left in front of your neighbors' houses, you've probably missed it.

I've often tried to figure out this puzzle with no success.

PATH to 33rd, walk to Penn Station, LIRR to Jamaica, JFK AirTrain. :(


Hands down the best solution available. Seriously, don't even bother looking for alternatives. It is 75-90 minutes from DTJC to JFK. I have done it multiple times, without issues. During weekends it is cheaper, as you can take advantage of the LIRR CityTicket option, which means you pay ~4.00 for the LIRR, plus PATH, plus AirTrain. About $12 in total. I have done it before in 75 minutes, but it depends on connections and a bit of luck. Worst case scenario, barring any crazy, unexpected problems, it will take you 90 minutes.


I've made better time doing PATH > WTC > A train > AirTran.

but that's the route the original poster is trying to avoid.

Re: Traffic Lights in JC Are All Out of Sync

there's a SUPER dangerous situation going on at the corner near Five Guys (Columbus and Warren Streets).

when you're crossing Columbus on the east side of the intersection, walking south, away from Five Guys, the walk signal coincides with the left turn signal, putting pedestrians right into the path of southbound cars turning left onto Columbus from Warren.

the signal, with its green left-turn arrow and white walking man, is literally telling people to cross while it's telling drivers to drive through that same crosswalk.

it's a tragedy waiting to happen.

I've reported it on see click fix, with no results. also posted photos on assorted facebook community groups. nada.

who do I reach out to?

Heights, Just wondering if you have any insights into why that's the policy? Seems retarded to me. You're either blocking a legal curb cut for access to/from private property or you aren't...


It's a terrible policy as a whole, but they said that parking is still available to you so just use that parking. Once I found out about the policy, I always needed to leave when my driveway was blocked, regardless if it was 100% the truth. Which was maybe 3 times in the past 4 years. Cars have been towed twice.


it's a case of urgency. not being able to exit your driveway for work/school, etc is an actual time-sensitive emergency. getting home and not being able to park in your driveway is an inconvenience, and the city wisely doesn't want to divert resources to that.
