Re: ISO: Fresh eucalyptus

Previous winter I was on a similar mission to no avail. I did find this product in one of the indian cash & carry stores on Newark Ave.

I believe eucalyptus may be an ingredient, I'm not sure. It was helpful, though!

I believe this garbage's ultimate dumping destination is upstate NY. It is not being dumped here, this is a transfer station.

I don't think you guys get it - the deal is with IESI, a private vendor who already has a Contract with the City of NY. If you don't want the facility expanded so it can use NYC's new fleet of closed containers they will simply relocate to another port that will accommodate them. It doesn't mean NYC will truck it's garbage upstate or elsewhere. It just means IESI will barge it somewhere else.

Yvonne, have you inquired into what flood protection the facility will have? Among other things, It's common to have perimeter flood walls a certain measure above 100 year storm levels (which were recently re-eavluated post Sandy).

This is actually related to NYC's shift from an open to closed container system. The deal with Covantas mentioned down below is tied to the construction of 4 new transfer stations within NYC (these were actually one of Bloomberg's "legacy" projects). NYC was trucking all of it's garbage. By using a closed container system the garbage can be barged away or in this case, transferred onto rails. It's a better system in pretty much every conceivable way. FYI one of the new transfer stations is located on the upper east side where it was protested heavily by the well-to-do residents. Guess what? It's still being built. All of the facilities contain flood protection measures that were beefed-up post Sandy.

I noticed it was exceptionally awful at a time when their usually isn't any traffic. This was the other week when the pulaski shut-down first started so I thought it was due to that.

Thanks, I appreciate the insight from both of you. Worth looking into. While it's a little further out then I'd like to live the prices and low taxes are hard to overlook.

No doubt. Some people are surprised when I tell them that the neighborhood east of Garfield and south of Danforth is one of the more peaceful areas in Jersey City.


I love that area, I was interested in a house there on Princeton but decided to walk away due to no parking. Its like the country over there.

However, That area is also a part of GV but I hear it might be in for a name change as well with all the new development behind the Richard street station. My area is slowly loosing its GV name due to the park.

Soon GV we will be a 4 block radius with all the name changing. sigh.. Too bad, I actually like the name.


I've been enticed by a couple real estate listings in this area (by the Danforth ave. light rail). Do either of you have the inside scoop? Is it genuinely quiet? No spillover from Greenville proper? Any insight is appreciated.

That's true but your head would be equally in the sand to think a neighborhood like Greenville or BL is remotely comparable to DTJC.


Aside from populations of prescription drug abusers I made no comparisons. Obviously they are vastly different neighborhoods.

This was exactly my point. I would venture that the number of white collar prescription drug opiate abusers in DTJC is just as high as the heroin abusers outside downtown. The original article was about abuse and nothing else. Let's not make this about crime or any other quality of life issues.

As other parts of the nation push towards legalization here we are wasting time, effort and money on an upstart entrepreneur. A total waste.

Biggest problem will be going to the supermarket, there's no decent one within reasonable walking distance, especially with a bunch of groceries.

Right, because only Korean people eat Korean food. I can tell you this white guy would love a place to get some sundubu.

Unrelated, but I hope anyone who went to the old West Side spot tried the new Honduran place that took over. Or do you have to be Honduran to eat there?

This company is partially subsidized by the chinese govt. Kind of gives them an unfair advantage for many of the competitively bid infrastructure projects they typically work on.

Their programming is part of what makes the Loews special. Playing contemporary films will only turn it into "just another movie theater". Why you'd be in favor of tax incentives for "just another movie theater" is beyond me.

I agree with the poster below me - this place really has the potential to be the impetus of change for the entire area. Don't be stupid and let it go to waste.

Got a sandwich over the weekend that really hit the spot.

Spoon is in a very unassuming location so hoping a little word of mouth will send more people over there.

Good luck guys
