Re: Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza Expansion

P&K had about a year left on their 20-year lease. The new lease offer was over $20k/month and they'd told me they couldn't swing that months before the pedestrian plaza expansion. But multiple store owners have said that the pedestrian plaza has reduced their business. I've been here over 30 years and know enough of the longtime owners. They told me directly-


Odd, I just talked to the P&K people and they said they are definitely not planning on closing or moving, and actually they are looking to expand into an additional location. The pedestrian plaza and lack of parking is definitely hurting their business but they say they are not going anywhere. And I have also lived here for 30 years as of this fall. :)

Didn't notice, sorry. Honestly I tried to stay away from the fumes/construction, so I walked around the block in the other direction when running errands.

Once the number of trains in maxed out, then they're going to go from 8-car to 10-car trains. That's another 25 percent increase in capacity in addition to the 29 percent increase from the signaling upgrades.


But the current 8 car trains stretch the entire length of every station I'm aware of, how would a longer train pick up and drop off people?

I have been here a bunch of times to get their margherita pizza squares. They were really good the first handful of times, but the last two times have been sodden and inedible, so laden with oil that I had to throw them away.

I think it's in part because of the way they display them on an angle, so all of the oil runs downhill and collects in the bottom few pieces, but I don't plan on going back any time soon, which is too bad.

I would say that this is a perfect time to leverage our proximity to Manhattan. IT's clearly why most of us live in Jersey City, anyway. Having lived here for ten years, I too love JC. BUT having lived in the city for ten years prior, I can also acknowledge when there are short-comings. Good rye bread and good bagels are two of them! Orwasher's bakery on E. 78th St near First Ave has some of the best rye bread I've ever tasted. Not to slam any more local vendors........but if you were compelled enough to post a request on JCList regarding where to find good rye bread, then I say invest the time and energy in heading up to the UES and try ORwashers.......just one man's humble opinion.....


Also Murray's on Bleecker carries a bunch of Orwasher's breads, if you're like me and you try to avoid visiting the UES if at all possible.

Re: Beware! Amazon's new delivery service leaves packages

Also beware of the USPS's sunday deliveries. I have two packages lost from amazon in the last 1.5 months (one from mid april, and one at end of May). Both were marked "delivered" in tracking, both were supposed to be "delivered" on sunday. But of course, no trace of them found when I get home. Something is very wrong when one of the tracking status has details that says "package left with receptionist or front desk person." Well, I live in small brownstone building, and we have no front desk or receptionist.

I went to the USPS office on wednesday, and the very nice manager told me that on sundays, they have a rotating staff of delivery men from other locations (such as bergen, etc) to help out (so the local folks can take a day off), and they have had a lot of issues recently (I'm shocked that they noticed!). However, the only thing they could do was report to the Post master - I guess that means the USPS black hole (just like the PATH black hole).

Recipients beware!!!


for the Sunday deliveries, they often just lie on the USPS tracking system. they have promised Amazon two-day delivery, but they're often not capable of doing that for whatever reason, so they mark in the system that they attempted delivery on Sunday (even though they haven't) and then they actually deliver it on Monday.

I've had this experience at least half a dozen times, it's annoying and confusing, but the packages aren't lost, at least in my experience.

It's a little annoying that they won't let you call ahead for takeout pizza, but it's more than made up for by the superb pizza.

we had a Sizzle (with sausage) and a Margherita today, and both were great. better than Razza, decidedly better than Roman Nose (which I like), probably even better than Grimaldi's/Hoboken, which has slipped in recent years. I will be back, although it's not cheap (for pizza).

well, I've been going to Raffetto for decades and it's pretty easy for me to continue to do so. if this place was comparable in terms of quality and price, I'd love to switch over, but it doesn't sound like that's close to the case, at least currently. too bad.

I don't personally find the idea appealing in any way, NYC or Jersey City, as I'd prefer to just have an actual meal somewhere, but I was asking about those four places specifically, which are all in fairly easy walking distance of each other and none involves an extended wait at most times.

just checked this place out a bit, they have a nice selection in a pretty limited space and extra credit for grouping a whole shelf of my beloved NYRB imprint together.

but in case there was any doubt, books are all list price here, so essentially 2 for the price of 3 or 3 for the price of 4 compared to Amazon. I don't understand how that business model can possibly work in this current climate, but good luck to them.

there are plenty of good cafes in the area these days (I'd recommend people support Bien Cuit and Cocoa for starters), but if the pitch is that it's a cafe with events that happens to sell books also, I guess I get that. it's not really for me, but I get it.
