Re: Small fire pit in backyard, 07302, is it legal?

You'll want to keep it very very small. The smoke will likely upset many of your neighbors. I had one about 15 years ago downtown on Wayne Street and a fire truck showed up within minutes - learned my lesson.

i'm not talking about the tv monitors. it's a singular monitor that seems to be awaiting some type of signal input or something.


You’re not crazy. There are new ones they recently installed. I saw them putting in wires a week or so ago. Today, I noticed the LED screens were mounted, and operational. It was just a bunch of colors, but they were on.


You guys are right.. my bad. I saw the new fancy ones today.

Same. Those LEDs that usually would tell you when the next train is coming have been there for at least 3-5 years.

Thank you Yvonne for wasting our elected officials collective time and our tax dollars to begin to review a second petition of what is likely to consist of fake names to oppose a statue from being moved one block of the waterfront to one block south due to your personal vendetta against our current mayor. I'm glad your speaking for NJ on behalf of everyone here.

Maybe when you attempt to lead the effort for the 3rd petition you should ask those that sign the petition to offer a donation to pay for that 3rd party to review the fake signatures (per your suggestion) as opposed to the tax payers.

This is really one of the dumbest battles I've ever heard of. Surprised how much time is collectively wasted on this effort which will ultimately fail.

It's not like they are demolishing the hideous statue - 1 frigged over.

Hilarious.

I agree with other posts, just ignore Yvonne. This person is obviously senile. The only motivation is to oppose Fulop, regardless of the issue. Ignore and maybe she goes away.

I've been able to dispose of old tv's, air conditioners, appliances by just leaving it on sidewalk with a free sign... usually gone within minutes.

I don't believe anything is even broadcasted in 1080p yet (maybe some netflix). It'll be many years before there is any capability of broadcasting in 4k and by then manufacturers will be pushing something different.

Re: Bright Street -- Prone to Flooding?

Where Bright, Grove, and Grand almost meet each other, there were several feet of water on Bright. That is where the surge came from and it is very low set. During Sandy, there was no power for two weeks. If you look at some of the row houses on the east side of Grove on that block, a few are still devastated from Sandy - that area took a major hit.

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.

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
#19
Home away from home
Home away from home


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.

Re: BIKE LANES in Jersey City

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?
#22

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.

Posting this on July 1st.

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.

Besides - there really weren't any good answers. If you had to get out, all Waze and the website would have told you is that you are screwed. And none of which addresses the ambulance....

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.
