Yeah, this place has no signage out front yet. It's just plain grey on the outside. It's directly next door to the firehouse on Palisade and Congress. About that old carpet place: it's huge and evidently very expensive---I know several people who were looking at it for possible food/retail but the owners were asking an astronomical price for it.

New cafe opening in the heights...
#3
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Does anyone have any more information about the new cafe opening in the heights? The space is right next to the firehouse at Palisade and Congress, and it used to be a bodega for a couple of years. It was closed for a while, and then I noticed that the gate was up and there was construction going on. I glanced in, and it looked beautiful-- gray walls and a counter with a tile backsplash. Someone is putting some energy and thought into making it a nice space.

I don't really know what the name of our part of the heights is (close to the 9th Street light rail and just below Union City), but we like it better all the time. We have Modcup over by Riverview Park, and some newcomer bar/restaurants (The Fox and Crow and the newly renovated Corkscrew) are nice additions. The streets are much livelier than they were when we moved here, and we are fortunate to have a backyard.

What happened to all the dollar vans?
#6
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I use the dollar vans a lot to get from the Heights to downtown and back again. It used to be quick and reliable, but recently I have noticed the following and wondered if anyone had any information on either:
1) Within the past six months there are fewer and fewer of them to the point that many of them don't have available seats by the time they get to Grove Street
2) Many of them only go as far as Journal Square. This started happening about a year ago?now I have to ask them before I get on, whereas before that all of them went down to Newport and then looped back again.

Tonight at the Fox and Crow on Palisade we saw the actor Jake Lacy who was in The Office and who played Hannah's boyfriend in the final episode of GIRLS. He was also in an indie movie that I liked called, "An Obvious Child".

I once made the mistake of going down to Hoboken on Fake St. Patrick's Day where I slipped on vomit, had a huge, bleary-eyed behemoth in a green vest grab my shoulder and push me hard, and saw a young woman passed out in a fetal position on the sidewalk at 1 in the afternoon.
I guess it's a fun time if you're pickled, but not so much when you're just trying to do some grocery shopping.

Olive and Orange?
#10
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I've walked by Olive and Orange Caterers on Central Avenue recently and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. I remember when they opened and they were serving dinner party style meals (very expensive), and the place looked beautiful. Now the windows are covered with frosted plastic and it looks kind of junky and uninhabited. Are they closed? Are they just operating as a catering kitchen now? Did they get tired of people looking in the windows?

I stopped by the Modcup one year anniversary party last night at A.J's on Palisade Bar( formerly Carribean Nights in the Heights) last night and was pleasantly shocked by the interior: whereas it used to look about as inviting as a refrigerator with blazingly bright lights, beer signs on the windows, and unadorned white walls, there were beautiful hanging lamps with low light, rustic-looking wooden walls, etc?very warm and stylish. On the door I think I saw that the name was changing from A J's to Fox & Crow?does anyone know anything about this?

Re: Considering a move from DT to JSQ or Heights - any tips here?

We love our part of the Heights...Webster Avenue. We have been here 12 years and have made lots of wonderful friends. I have really never felt unsafe here in all those years, even walking home fairly late alone from the light rail. Let's see...the sunday farmer's market, ModCup coffee, cheap Mexican food items, The Corkscrew Bar, the fact that I have both a front and back yard, my 20 minute commute to Manhattan, the fact that my block has neighbors from Poland, Mexico, France, India, Croatia, and Italy....all of this works for me. Good luck with your search!

I had something strange happen around last Halloween....one day a beautiful pumpkin appeared in the corner of my front yard. The fact that it was in such a strange, out of the way place made me realize that it wasn't a gift from anyone I knew. I assume someone stole it and then placed it there for some reason known only to the perp.

What's up with the new area of Washington Park in the heights?
#17
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Many people in the neighborhood were skeptical when it was decided that a football field would be built in Washington Park, right on Palisade. The group that did the building promised that, although they would be cutting down a stand of really old trees, they would do a lot of planting and put in a park with benches and paths. I was one of the skeptics who was pleasantly surprised to see that they kept their word: there really are beautiful plantings along Palisade and Paterson Plank, and they have installed benches and either fountains or planters and nice pavement. However, the park is still surrounded by chain link fence, even though it looks finished. Does anyone know what's holding up the opening of the park to the public?

Vigilante...I agree with you. For all the things that I like about living in JC , it's certainly not rainbows and unicorns around here. I don't know what the answer is for the kind of ingrained culture of lack of civility/noise/littering/crime that one sees around here, and, as you say, the lack of police presence. I can feel great and positive about where I live and then have my bubble pierced like it was yesterday, when I shared the light rail elevator with a guy who was walking back and forth screaming obscenities into his phone (and giving everyone else in the elevator the run down on his recent incarceration) as his poor three year old son stood by mutely. It's really sad.

Amen, Moobycow. I live in the Heights and, yes, some of my noisy neighbors drive me bonkers and sometimes there is garbage on the streets, but there are also these kinds of things:
Amazing neighbors who got out of bed (on their own volition!) to wire my old iron fence to its posts when it fell over the other night,
other neighbors who regularly shovel my walk during a snowstorm without being asked to,a wonderful farmer's market on Sundays where people hang out and listen to music, a fantastic neighborhood coffee shop, cheap avocados at the corner bodega,
fireflies in my backyard, and a supportive community of friends. .I lived in Hoboken for years and my husband had to drag me up here kicking and screaming. I was sure at the time that I would really, really miss Hoboken. The truth is, I hardly ever go there. I'm very content where I am. But, of course, those who aren't should find a place where they feel happier! Bon chance!

Korean deli for the Heights?
#22
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


In the Heights we have three different kinds of food stores (other than grocery stores): the ones on Central that sell only vegetables and fruit, the newsstands that sell junk food, and the corner stores that sell canned vienna sausages, soda, cleaning supplies, and onions. Around Grove Street there are at least three really well-stocked Korean delis--you know, the kind where you can buy crackers and chocolate chips and organic milk. Does anyone else think that one of those would do really well up in this neck of the woods. Here's the question: how to get the word out to the owners of these kinds of stores? Does anyone know if there's some kind of Korean business consortium that identifies neighborhoods where such a business would do well?

Nemobeatz.. I will drop into Tachair the next time I'm in that neighborhood. I want to keep small businesses going, and not just Word.

I think people don't give Tachair the love they should because they think that it's an Irish import store. I can't be the only person in town who was thrown off by the Gaelic name and font on their sign.
It is aesthetically pleasing but really misleading.

Unpaved sidewalk

I am curious if anyone knows where to report an unpaved sidewalk. The owners of the small apartment building down the street from me had their oil tank removed in the middle of the summer, and the sidewalk where it used to be was covered in gravel. It has remained that way ever since. Who is in charge of this sort of thing?
