Good luck finding any school or daycare to take your kid.

As I imagined, this is a very sensitive topic. I will leave you all with this. It should be up to the parents. We should have be forced to vaccinate. Every child is different, and more testing/research needs to be done to study the long term effects as well as the combining of vaccines during a given doctor's visit.

1) Please don't go comparing ingesting to injecting. When ingesting aluminum and/or chlorine, your gut has an opportunity to fed off the toxins. When injecting, your body has no chance of fighting the toxins.

2) Glyphosate- You are what you eat AND you are what you eat eats. In order other words, one of the ingredients in some vaccines is cow tissue. If the cows are eating the very grains that are being fertilized by Monsanto's Round Up, then guess what. It's in the cow tissue, and thus in the vaccine.

3) Thimerosal is still in vaccines as "trace amounts". That's a fact. You may not see them listed because the percentage is below a certain level but it's there. And again, any amount of toxins going straight into the bloodstream is troubling. Why not demand big Pharma spend a little money investigating ingestable vaccines?

Listen, doctors used to say a cigarette a day is good for the body. It's helps you relax. Blah, blah, blah. It took decades for the truth to come out about the negative consequences of smoking because the Tobacco industry used its money to influence Government. Vaccines is another big money business. A lot is at stake for these Pharma companies. I don't expect them to roll over. But I am willing to do the digging to make the best decisions for my family.

Hey your kids are vaccinated. Good for you. You guys have nothing to fear. Load your kids up with these vaccines. They will be protected. No need to worry by my kid and my parenting skills.

Listen, kids are sicker than ever. Cancer in kids is at all time high levels. Learning disorders are on the rise. Autism is spiking, especially among boys. The data doesn't lie. Something is going on. I have a hutch why. And it's shame that greed is getting in the middle.

I was sitting in a taxi on Hudson St. about 50 ft away when the explosion happened. It was insane. The driver got out thinking he had hit something because the car felt like it lifted off the ground. Crazy

The Kitchen at Grove Station

Decided to give this place a try last Saturday. At first I was a bit thrown off by the location. Entrance is on the Marin side of the large office building on the corner of Marin and Columbus. Place was packed. We took the only available table right by the entrance, which kind of sucked because every time the door opened (which was a lot), a huge gust of wind came in. I have to assume they'll put some sort of wind barrier there. Keep this in mind if sitting in the 2-3 tables near the entrance.

This place is BYO, and the food and staff were excellent. We shared two apps: the scallop crudo, which was decent, and the celery root veloute, which was excellent. A little too much paprika on the crudo overpowered the dish but it was overall good. I had the short rib for my main dish and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Wife had the duck confit gnocchi which was also excellent. Will definitely be back.

Went on Saturday. The Cannoli were mehhh. The shell tasted like the outside of mexican fried ice cream, and the filling tasted like it was flavored with lime. Was expecting traditional cannoli, being that, you know, it's an Italian place. The meat and dessert displays were half empty and didn't look appetizing. Only thing on display was some stale looking Pannetone bread pudding and some other dessert. The restaurant looked great. I hope the market area improves though. It was underwhelming.

This place is a joke. They have stupid $10 cc minimum. My wife and kids wents there the other day. When she tried to pay, the guy at the register told her about the minimum. So she grabs a few more things, and the total comes out to something like $9.64. The guy gives her blank stare and says she's short. She walked out and went elsewhere. Bad way to do business.

I ate here recently and was really impressed. Tried the mussel app and it was delicious. Had black cod as main and it was cooked perfectly. Service was good, but slow, but we weren't in a rush, and it was only their 3rd day open. Drinks were very good, and the dishes the rest of our table got were equally delicious. A very welcome addition.

I've rented there for 3 yrs and love it. Was there through Sandy and only lobby and 1-2 apts on the first floor had some water. Building is very well run. Great staff. Well built place, so noise from other units is minimal to non-existent. Overall a great place to live.

You can call it whatever you want. The point folks here are making is that the market decides whether it is overpriced or not.
I think there are a lot of restaurants that are overpriced in the city but I cant call them that bc they are busy?
See above.
Is kevin pemoulie your brother or is there some other reason why you are taking personal offense to these comments?
You seem to be the only one taking this personally. People are just making a point - which you obviously disagree with.

I live across the street at 25 Hudson and I know the first floor units, esp. those facing Greene St., got flooded pretty badly. That whole part of of Greene St. was under water in Sandy. Not sure what sort of damage they suffered, repairs, etc., but it looked bad.

Yes, because the dollar stores and other shitholes really add some much "character" to the DTJC. >facepalm<

Exactly. This is what I dont get. People are moving here from hoboken and NYC and want to change DTJC so it's more like hoboken or NYC. Why not just go back to where you came from if it's so great. What you people are asking for is exactly what Washington St is. Just go there. Please.

Whatever. I'm sure the same conversation will be taking place ten years from now except it will be about all the "cheap" stores on Central ave.


In ten years, these asshats will be complaining about how generic downtown has become, and THEN they'll move to the heights and proceed to bitch about Central Ave.

Down with the dollar and shady electronics stores. There's plenty of those on Central ave and JFK Blvd. Clean it up, put some quality businesses, and you'll see an immediate improvement.

What? Inflation? what does this have to do with declining enrollment in Catholic schools?

I sent my two older children to Catholic schools (Holy Rosary, OLC) because of tradition. They were wholly unprepared when they were accepted to McNair.

When you substitute religious nonsense for real learning, it's a disservice to our youth. No more parochial schools for our family.

That's the thing...the baking was not very good. Maybe the lack of good bakeries in downtown has somehow lowered people's standards, but I always thought MWL was not good. Price aside, I wouldn't pay 1/2 of what they charged for the stuff she had there.

Reading all the comments several things come though, she was very good at baking and knew what should go into her products not sure if she had a business plan. I think if she did she would have known that JC was not the demographic for her products. She might have done well on the upper east side of Manhattan or Princeton NJ. If she had a business plan she would have known at what price points for her products in JC would be acceptable and figured this into her cost of goods.
This seems to be the story of many of the small retailers in JC that open and close good intentions and no business sense.
