Re: New York Times: Is New York’s Best Pizza in New Jersey?

I like Razza pizza but it's comparing apples to oranges. Razza is not really NY traditional style pizza at all. Both styles are great in different ways.

Closest thing that I have found to good NY traditional style pizza here is Boun Appetito.

Expect a $42 ticket or whatever they are now to be on your car when you return. They don't give anyone breaks unless you have a disability or personally know the ticket person.

Just cancel student debt, really? That's the plan? Also feeding into 911 conspiracies. Brilliant. Before anyone wastes their vote, they should probably research the candidate - simply voting for someone for the sake of not voting for Clinton or Trump is not a wise move.

Re: WAZE App showed me the rest of JC

Not every renter in JC needs to invest their time and effort into being concerned about the entire city.

I would say the majority of downtown renters only care about their immediate surroundings and their ability to get to the city. Unless they are investing in other parts of JC, who cares if they are living and comfortable in their downtown bubble.

While it sucks that most of Greenville is stricken by crime and undeveloped areas, that really is not of my concern as I have no desire to frequent or invest in those areas. If you want to help out the people of those areas and get involved, all the power to you - but don't expect those that are happy living and spending their time downtown to have the same passion as you.

I can't see a trendy tapas place succeeding there. A sports bar would have done well.

With as long as it's taken them to get this place open, I'm sure the cost has been high, the demand for a tapas place will not pay the bills. They'll never hit the black.

The lanes on Grove are still doing great as they are consistently at least 50 - 60% blocked by vehicles that are double parked.

so how is jersey city doing with implementing bike lanes?

there are some nice green textured ones on a few blocks of lower Montgomery and part of Columbus.

there are some more stripped/painted ones, throughout the city. But, none (or few) are connected. there are none that go more than a few blocks east/west and none from uptown to downtown (up/down the hill.)

now with Citi Bike expansion, there should be a need for a connected bike lane system. and perhaps a trial protected bike lane.

Re: Problems with Comcast?
#11

Home away from home


I believe a lot get sucked into advertising. Both Fios and Comcast are fiber. They are both extremely fast. As a comcast subscriber, and an IT professional that runs his own company and has virtual machines accessible through the network... comcast is good.

Maybe 10 years ago, with cable internet you would notice your bandwidth being affected by other users.. but that is far from the case these days. I get consistent 180Mbps download - it's possible if everyone in the neighborhood is downloading movies at the same time it can get throttled to 160Mbps -- which is still amazing and more than anybody needs.

It is the equipment within the buildings that are peoples problems - not the service coming to the building.

People get so sucked into marketing campaigns to think that one service is faster than the other... when in reality they are both faster than anyone needs.

Customer service and pricing however is a completely different story. I can only speak to Comcast on that and they suck at it - but have gotten slightly better over the past few years.

Agreed with the above posters -- pay Comcast to send the signal to your modem and don't use their equipment. Do some research, get a decent modem and a good router and your speeds should be fast. I have Blast and consistently have download speeds of 180MBps on all my devices.

For the past probably month or so I've been having terribly unreliable service with my internet. I'm in Downtown. My connection drops pretty much nightly right around 9.

I called tech support and they said they can have someone come out. I told them it's not me, it's you. Then to my amazement they told me there's literally nothing that I, as a customer, can do to resolve this, or to check back on to see that someone was working on the issue.
They have no service advisories on record. There's no department she could point me to that deals with anything related to quality assurance.

Anybody else having this issue? What the hell do you do? Switch to Fios? Does Fios suck?


Before blaming Comcast - maybe think a little more and that the problem could possibly be on your end. I hate Comcast as as a company, their customer service is pathetic, but I've had them here downtown for 13 years and they have been extremely reliable.

My guess is you have issues with your equipment.. maybe modem, router, or your devices.

Why such a crank about it?


Better a crank than a fumduck who doesn't realise that during summer months there are frequently events and festivals that shutdown parts of JC.

(Quite happy to trade insults with entitled d bags if that's where you want to take the thread).


Events and Festivals - no problem. Events, festivals + closing off Grand & Monmouth for paving on a Saturday afternoon = Terrible Planning.

Perhaps not everybody is exactly the same as you and some people need to drive places on their day off. I was stuck in that clusterfk for about 40 minutes just trying to get from the Pathmark plaza to York & Grove.

I rarely drive and was stuck in that mess trying to get home from the auto shop.

It was poor planning to shut down Monmouth and Grand and cross sections during the same day as the JC Eats. They should have just paved that during a weekday, not on a day that there will be a ton of cars. If you were stuck west of Monmouth and tried to get downtown, it was ridiculous.

I've never witnessed about 20 cars driving on the rear side of the building of the old Pathmark just trying to figure out how the hell to get home before.

...AccuWeather meteorologist Bernie Rayno is also being cautious about snowfall projections this early, but he said if the current computer models hold up, states in the Northeast region could see as much as 6 to 12 inches of snow this weekend.

Let it Snow! More


Yeah, let's hope it snows so it pleases your sights regardless of the hardship suffered by the elderly, damage to roads and cars due to salt, and the economic loss by businesses. But whatever, none of that are important as long as you don't miss snow anymore. Yay for selfishness.





Right, because everybody knows that there are no businesses or economy that could possibly rely on winter weather conditions.

Let all the ski shops with full inventories suffer the losses of a mild winter.

Who cares about those that rely on winter months for snow plowing.

All the businesses in towns like Vernon, towns in the Catskills, and Vermont -- bed & breakfasts, ski resorts, restaurants that are heavily dependent on Winter... who the hell cares about their economies.

All the people that love skiing and snowboarding and have had no where to go this winter -- screw them.

Yup - selfishness indeed.


Not to mention that we do reside in an area of the country that is known to have 4 seasons that includes some snow and cold temperatures during the winter months. I suppose we should feel bad for the elderly that didn't realize that it snows this time of year here and have mistakenly settled in the wrong area of the country.


Last time I checked, Jersey City didn't have a huge ski resort..last time I checked, I was posting on a JC board and lived in JC, not Vermont.

Yes, JC goes through 4 seasons. A winter season and 12+ inches of snow which some of you want is very different. We got snow..on Sunday.

If you want to experience winter in all its glory, I suggest you put up snowflake decals in your living room and watch Frozen in 3D.

The majority of JC residents do not want a major snowstorm for obvious reasons. If you want to ski, go to Vermont or the Catskills.


I guess if being miserable during the winter is your thing, then all the power to you.

Personally, I guess I'm a selfish guy. I can't wait until we get the first 12+ inch storm. Even better, maybe 2 feet. I love the winter wonderland. Nope I don't need to watch anything on tv as I know I live in a place where it typically occurs every year.

It's great, my car gets burried in snow, then I don't even have to move it from one side of the street to the others for weeks.

I don't recall getting anywhere close to that for the non-storm --- regardless, the point being it was a very late winter last year with all it's punch packed into Feb & Mar. Nov - Jan was very mild with a lot of rain. That storm was 1/27 - close enough.

Not as brutal as the winter that many seem to remember.

Not true... We did get snow in Nov, Dec and Jan.


I suppose if you want to count a cumulative 1-2 inches of snow during that 3 month stretch, you win. Granted this is NYC, but close enough. I do however see plenty of rain during those months:

As an avid snowboarder, I can assure you if we got any snow prior to February, it was minimal to nothing.

Look at it this way: If every foot of parking space in the city was divided by the total number of taxpayers, each individual would l get X feet of parking space that "belonged" to them.

As a non car owner It would have been nice if I was exempt from paying some of my taxes to account for the fact that I was not utilizing the parking I was paying for, or if I was able to lease "my" parking space percentage to the car owners, but this has never been the case. But now non-car owners have a legitimate use for a very small percentage of the total parking spaces and you know what? I want MY space used for bikes, and so do a lot of other people. In fact there should be ten times as many citibike stations around town and I hope there will be in the future. This will still leave the vast majority of parking spaces to he car owners and is more democratic. Also lets remember that most of the citibike stations in Jersey City are not IN parking spots. Car owners do not like the loss of ANY spots and are putting up all sorts of irrational arguments against the use of citibike, which is hilarious but shows their overdeveloped sense of entitlement

The women that used to drive the car on my block knew my neighbor. She would sit outside the brownstone every single day and hit the horn and wait a good minute or two for my neighbor to come out and move the car.

So I guess the key is to just know the person giving out the tickets then your set.
