ahh Portland Maine! definitely my favorite food town in the US! You aren't going to find a better food setup anywhere in the country! I think JC has a very diverse group of restaurants. But, definitely take advantage of your close proximity to NYC where you can find a wide array of restaurants!!!

I stopped by yesterday when i noticed it was open to take a look inside. the hostess was nice enough to give me a tour. It is a very nice setup and the prices are very decent. I am looking forward to trying it out!

what kind of drive is it? I would first try putting the external drive in the freezer overnight. Then, pull it out and immediately connect it and see if you can access that data.

I think that greg needs to be sure it was actually the owners and not some people waiting for food before accusing them.

After reading this thread, i first wanted to commend the church for their efforts in trying to make a positive difference in their neighborhood and with our youth. Very few people are willing to step up to the plate and actually do something to make a difference in their community. Obviously they have. That should be respected.

Now, as stated, there is a major problem with the large number of kids leaving the party which is impacting the safety of the kids at the party and the residents in the neighborhood. Seems like there are many constructive thoughts on the board, yet noone has showed up to their invites to discuss. I would bet that if enough people show up to discuss, you could all find a solution that benefits everyone.

I saw someone bring something up about race. Please do not go there.

However, they are from Jersey City and I am as well, so I wanted an "outsider's" opinion as I thought it would be less biased. I grew up in downtown and although I have always loved it, I cannot afford it for starters, but I wanted more space and this place had it and at a price within my budget. I knew it would be a tradeoff, but my safety is ultimately worth more. Thanks again.


You were the one that went there first in the headline of your post... If you don't see that then clearly you are not very observant and need to get that skill worked on before you consider buying a place. Fact is that it is a high crime area in Jersey City. I know that you feel that asking black people in the neighborhood makes you feel like your validated yourself but that just brings race into again by suggesting that the area is safe for black people but not for whites.

I'm quite sure that many of the black people that live there don't want to as evidenced by their comments to you. In any event, if you wanted an honest answer, you could have easily walked yourself over to the West District PD which is on Communipaw and they could give you the crime states for that neighborhood.

I would have liked them to investigate the ratio of single guys to girls in Hoboken and their average age. My guess is there are way more single guys. I would also be curious where each group goes to meet people of the opposite gender. My guess, most people say NYC.

I feel like any corner in New York will have a trash can on at least one point of the intersection, if not all four. Meanwhile, Jersey City is lucky to have a trash can every three blocks.



thats no excuse. Its funny i was just in Paris, and its amazing how hard it is to find a trash can on the street. yet the city is extremely clean. Especially the subways!!

i bet someone went after a GPS. if you have one, make sure you take it with you. And wipe away the circles that it makes on your windshield. These guys see that and thats all they need to make them smash your window.

I have only eaten there once and i was very unimpressed by the food. Azucar has much better cuban food! For some GREAT Dominican food check out D Hernandez which is a few blocks up off Columbus.

Re: Parking in Hoboken

Not too shy to talk


I lived in Hoboken and drive there all the time. Parking sucks. But parking can be had. Washington St is the easiest as people are coming and going constantly. Just keep cruising till you find parking. On the side streets. you need to be on the white sign side which allows 2 or 4 hours to non permit vehicles. Otherwise you will get a boot. In the summer its a little easier especially on the weekends due to people going to the shore.

This is not new news. Check the forums on DICE, an IT job board and you will see many threads like this. tough times out there!! Especially for the IT field. I know a few HR managers in the IT realm(and work in the field myself). And many of them say they are "looking for IT people that have great communication skills." Unfortunately, i think many indians are being generalized as not having good communication skills and this is hurting them in the IT field.

I know you passed, but my suggestion is to sit on the lawn. Thats where all the fun is! And I dont just mean the smokable kind, I mean the people are more lax and thats usually where fans can just rock out


i would agree. the lawn is great. i have never even had interest in any other type of seating when there.

The problem is that they will ignore the message about AIDS and instead will think that the life of a rapper is the best thing on earth.

Rap was good when it help young men empower themselves but now it helps young men destroy themselves. It has become garbage and should be thrown in the dump.


Judging by your comment, i can tell you are as ignorant about our inner city youth as you are about hip hop music. Rap is still "good". if you have a problem with the message, talk to the record labels that will only sign an artist or release an album that deal with that destructive subject matter. Many artists with positive lyrics are signed and then are told to change or dumb down their music if they want it released. Talk to the execs at the radio stations who will only play songs(with a few exceptions) that deal with that subject matter. I listen to tons of hip hop that does not deal with any types of destructive subject matter, that is very thought provoking and positive. However, you will never hear it on the radio. Just because you walk by these kids on the street doesn't mean you have a clue about what they are thinking or dealing with. Jim Jones is a great option for getting across a message that desperately needs to be given to these kids. I don't agree with everything Jim Jones says or raps about. But at the end of the day, this message about HIV needs to be delivered. And he is a great option to do it.


Tell me what is good about rap these days? Enlighten me please! Do you know there is a difference between rap and hip hop right? Did you know that Jim Jones promotes drug use by promoting the use of cough medicine as a recreational drug? What kind of message are the kids going to get after they go home and download Jim's song? Tell me who has the good lyrics that you talk about. What are the positive things hip hop has done over the past recent years compare to the negative. If you were wise you would realize that rap is just a gimmick for corporate America to get rich on the expense of young black youth.How many people are going to die in the streets until your ignorant ass realizes that rap is hurting us not helping us?


I would be glad to enlighten you! I have been listening to Rap much since 1987. So i know a little bit about the music and Hip Hop Culture. Yes i even know the difference between the two. If you frequent websites like Allhiphop.com and others, you might hear about some of the GOOD things rap aritsts do. However, the media likes to focus on the bad. I do agree with you that most commercialized rap music is a gimmick. But dont blame the artists for trying to make some money. Like i said before. Blame the labels and radio stations for forcing them to rap this way. THEY are the ones that are hurting US! Got a problem with it? Support these underground artists with positive lyrics so that the labels see that they can sell records too. Maybe then Rap music will return to the way it used to be in 1989! But anyway, you asked what artists have good lyrics?

You can begin your quest by checking out these artists and their respective catalogues: Enjoy!

Anyone else been to this place? My buddy tried it out and told me the food was outstanding. So, i tried it out and indeed it was. Probably the best spanish food i have had in Jersey City. Huge portions, cheap prices and the food is great. I had the roast pork. Just curious if anyone else has tried it out.
