The situation at this intersection has not gotten much better... twice in the past week I've yelled at cars who just ZOOM through, some without even slowing down... it's mostly the cars coming from the south, as they're trying to make the light at Montgomery. The placement of this stop sign like the poster above said, is asinine. It is literally to the side and behind a telephone pole. I was so grateful for the stop signs at this intersection as it is kind of dangerous most of the time... hopefully it will get better?! I just wish they would move the stop sign so it isn't blocked!

We haven't had any flooding on this block - I'm basically right across the street from the school on Bright Street. Not sure how different it might be over at Fourth and Newark. During Irene it was all clear as far as flooding in the streets, except for the basement.

Just saw on NY4 that Jersey City is calling for voluntary evacuations for those along the Hudson River and in Downtown Jersey City... of course, still no update on the City's official website. Fulop is doing status updates via Facebook, so I guess those who are concerned could maybe get in touch with him to get his take... but he isn't the one to make final calls and is saying so.

Looks like they just changed it on the website, to call it the "un-turkey salad sandwich". I'm confused though - they claim to be a vegan restaurant yet the vegan platters portion of the menu shows they have meatballs, pepper steak, chicken nuggets, buffalo strips, burgers and so on. I never knew of the place before but might venture over there for my own amusement.


All of those things you mention are vegan versions of those items.

Cat Man Mark Blanchard has posted in this thread -- his handle is CatmanJC.

We just had him care for our four cats while away for a week. He is absolutely amazing. He really knows how to handle cats and when he came to interview the cats it was obvious that he really cares about them. He sent us email updates as well as left us a really detailed note card upon our return. It was so amazing to come home to a clean house, he did such an amazing job! Usually we always come home to a litter box mess or other sort of nonsense. I simply cannot say enough good things about this man's services and would recommend him ten times over again!

His number is (201)657-8510.

I'm in agreement re: delicious healthy (maybe vegan?) restaurant. There is an amazing restaurant chain in California called Cafe Gratitude that specialises in delicious raw food. The places are always packed, and veg/vegans/omnivores alike all enjoy the food there. Considering the traffic that our farmers markets see, I'd like to think that JC folks are interested in eating healthfully and deliciously.

And if this doesn't work, may I humbly request that you have a delicious vegan meal that has nothing to do with hummus. Please.

Hope that clears things up. I am one of the many people unhappy they're living a block away from me, but now knowing it's only for 3 weeks, I can live with it. Just as long as they're not filming in the bar downstairs from me and turning it into Seaside's Karma. Not in the mood to hear shitty house at 3am on a Wednesday.

Was walking home along that block of Mercer today and saw that all the buildings had notices on the front... I peeked up to see what they said (from the production company) and basically it gave them the schedule for the whole deal. From what I gathered, filming will be taking place from Feb 21 - March 9. I just tried to check it out quickly, but thats pretty much what I got from it.

Residents Evacuated After Gas Leak Discovered in Jersey City
A crack was discovered on a high-pressure gas main

Crews are on the site of gas leak in Jersey City after a crack was discovered on a gas main Sunday afternoon.

About 60 people were evacuated from a residential neighborhood in the city after a leak was discovered in the 20-inch high-pressure gas main, according to Jersey City Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Stewart.

Nearly all of the homes near the site of the leak had explosive mixtures within the building.

A number of senior citizens in senior housing also had to be moved to another side of a building, and a shelter was put in place, said Stewart.

Public Service Gas was on the scene.

"They've identified the valves they need to close to isolate the leak, and they're attempting to do so right now," said Stewart.

"We've very lucky," said Stewart. "If you look, we've had recent experiences here and in New York with buildings blowing up under these conditions, so we're very lucky."

Port Authority public hearing pins new jobs against fare hikes
Published: Tuesday, August 16, 2011, 11:51 AM Updated: Tuesday, August 16, 2011, 11:54 AM


The question of how far the Port Authority should go to create jobs was the subject of an open meeting to discuss proposed fare hikes for the PATH trains and tolls between New York and New Jersey.

The proposed fare hikes would increase PATH fare from $1.75 to $2.75. But on the other side, the Port Authority estimated the increased revenue would open 169,000 jobs.

At the Port Authority Technical Center in Jersey City Tuesday morning, more than 50 union workers showed up in bright orange t-shirts, promoting the fare hikes. The funds will in part go to new infrastructure for the Port Authority, which will open up job opportunities in the construction fields.

The unions present represented construction, plumbing and electrical workers ? many of whom have been unemployed for more than six months.

Randy Bostick, of Irvington N.J., stood in front of the crowd and took a deep breath before continuing.

"You can do it, Randy," called members of the audience.

Bostick began to cry. "I am hurting," he said. "I need this to pass because I have no employment. I work one day a week by the grace of God. I am at the mercy of this program. "

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey proposed a two-phase toll and fare increase to fully fund a new $33 billion 10-year capital plan, which will generate 167,000 jobs.

The revenue from the fare hikes will be used to improve infrastructure on the Bayonne Bridge, the Lincoln Tunnel and the George Washington Bridge, according to the Port Authority.

The proposed fare increases move the PATH train fare from $1.75 to $2.75.

The toll increase will be from $8 to $15 during peak hours.

Christine Bamburger, a Jersey City resident, said the increases are too steep and do not consider the effects on everyday citizens.

Bamburger said she has relied on public transportation for 11 years to get around, and the increase unfairly puts the burden onto commuters rather than looking internally for cost cutting solutions.

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez said the Port Authority should conduct a full audit in order to answer why there is such a financial gap and to see where money can be rerouted to fund the projects.

Menendez said Governor Chris Christie should veto the proposal until a more reasonable option is presented.

"To put these increases in perspective, the GW Bridge is less than a mile long, and yet one would have to pay $15 cash to cross it ? if the Turnpike had the same toll per mile it would cost over $2000 to travel through New Jersey," he said. "This is simply an unacceptable increase."

Sean Connors, who is the democratic candidate to represent the 33rd district in the state assembly, wants the Port Authority to open its books to see if the money can come from the business, rather than on the shoulders of citizens.

"I am in support of the projects because they will revamp the economy, but it should not out of the pockets of the commuters," he told The Jersey Journal.

He doesn't feel that the commuters should be responsible for the costs associated with rebuilding the World Trade Center. He does support the construction and infrastructure improvements, but encourages an internal reorganization of assets.

Connors also questioned the time chosen for the meeting. He said having a meeting at 8 a.m. in August is unfair because community members might not have been able to get off work or may be on vacation, and were unable to attend the meeting.

Another meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. tonight at the Holland Tunnel Administration Building.

But Robert Graham, from Bayonne said a morning meeting is important to hear the concerns of the unemployed.

"Lots of people are coming home from work for the meeting later," he said. "People are here this morning because we don't have work."

I live near a dance studio that often has loud music that sometimes on the weekend can go to 11pm or so. Its annoying, sure... But I am completely grateful that the dance studio is there and is giving kids an opportunity to be involved with something worthwhile and enriching.

I feel like the Grove Pointe folks should choose to have a similar perspective.

I saw them last week, getting off the PATH on my morning commute (prob around 730am, they got off at 23rd) and I was very very concerned as her face was so incredibly bruised and blown up and swollen. She looked like she was having trouble walking, too. I couldn't get the image out of my mind all day and wished there was something I could do to help. It seems to be a dangerous and toxic relationship... makes me very sad.

They did "answer" the question about going thru the water... from a prior reply in this thread:

Quote:
i think the argument was based on the contention that the horizontal drilling approach that they were able to use elsewhere would not work under such a wide body of water because they would not have sufficient number of drilling spaces. yet, they also made the statement that in fact, they are disallowed from crossing the 2 path tubes and the holland tunnel tubes.


Whatever that means... ::shrug::

Well as the organization that did Homeland Security for the Bush W administration, would you expect anything less?

I missed the part where they said they apparently can't put the pipeline in the river -- can anyone recap that?

When is the next hearing? And do we get to talk this time? (I was at one of the meetings over the summer, but I was just learning about the issue then. I might be brave enough to speak next time.)

The biggest oopsie moment in my book was when the guy couldn't answer the question regarding where Spectra has the most densely populated area where they have pipeline. He couldn't give a number, just "in the Boston area"... like, really? Really?

I hope that anti-pipeline supporters keep even heads and use their facts. We don't have to get dirty, just speak smartly. I know I saved my choice words of frustration for the privacy of my own home :) (I witness an exchange of words between a green shirt and an anti-pipeline supporter when leaving city hall tonight, so I just wanna toss that out there!) :)

Dined here on Saturday night... and three words - YUM YUM YUM.

I might be a bit biased, being that I love Asian cuisine more than the average bear, but I was delighted by this restaurant. It was BYOB, but looks to be attaining their liquor license if the snazzy bar was any indication.

We ordered a few appetizers -- Fried Calamari, Edemame, Crab Rangoon and Veg tempura. The Crab Rangoon alone is enough to make me want to go back... they were small, decadent, little bites of yum. Really crispy and creamy, perfect flavor and texture.

For entrees, I got the tofu bento box (tofu in teriyaki, fresh spring roll - aka not the fried kind - and delicious steamed veggies with some sort of seasoning on it), my partner had the veg tempura udon noodle soup (the broth was amazing) and our other dining companions had pork belly & duck (of which I did not try since I don't eat meat, but they both finished their plates and I can say it smelled delish!).

All said and done, the total bill for the four of us was in the $60 neighborhood... Not bad at all! (We did BYOB a bottle of red & white, so I think that helps with the cost of things)

If I had to critique something, it would probably be that it was a little too dark inside. We sat under the "trees" so it wasn't as bad, but the bank of tables across the way looked really dark. I would also say that I would have preferred firm tofu instead of silken... but that point is really kinda moot considering that I enjoy tofu regardless of its form!

I know most would complain that we do not need more Asian restaurants, but for me, they are gladly welcomed! I am excited to return and try something else.

We ordered from D&D on Friday, fully expecting to wait for our delivery based on the reviews mentioned in this thread. Sure enough, an hour later our food arrived, and unfortunately was not very hot, but thats not anything a good zap in the micro can't take care of. Unfortunately, we were less than thrilled with the shrimp dumplings... they tasted almost of plastic and I had the unpleasant experience of crunching down into a shrimp tail. The lo mein was OK as well, didn't seem very flavorful, I ended up pouring the rest of my dumpling sauce on it to jazz it up. The veggie dumplings were terrific though. All that said, and even though we were left a little bit disappointed, I would still be willing to give it another shot, just for the price alone.

Though I have to say, my chinese food allegiance will always be with Chun Bo! Viva la crab rangoon!
