Try Legal Grounds on Grand St - http://www.yelp.com/biz/legal-grounds-coffee-company-jersey-city

Most whole beans are around $10/lb - some more, some less.

Re: Pilates Specific recommendations

I've taken classes at both Pilates Haus (currently) and Project Pilates.

I stopped going to Project Pilates when they moved to the Hamilton Park area and joined up with the gym. It's not public transit accessible and parking in the area is hard to find. I feel like joining up with the gym lost some of the true Pilates-ness of Project Pilates.

Pilates Haus is within walking distance from both home and the PATH. The instructors are fabulous! Yes, I agree, there could be more classes or a different variety of them. But the instructors are among the best!

Thanks PathH8Tr! I looked at Experience Day Spa's website because it's walking distance to me but didn't know much about it. I might have to give Maria a shot!

Microdermabrasion recommendation?
#4
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I've gone to two places in the area for microdermabrasion treatments.

One was in Hoboken. I used a Groupon for it and hated it/the owner. She recommended wrinkle treatments to me, which would have been fine if I wasn't 25 at the time.

The other one was in Jersey City. I loved it and they always had website specials. There seemed to be a bit of staff turnover which was annoying because I rarely got the same esthetician. Unforunately they've since closed.

I'm hesitant to use a random Groupon since this is my face we're talking about... And sometimes you get what you pay for...

Can anyone recommend a good spa/salon that does microdermabrasion in the Jersey City/Hoboken area?

Here is pricing for the Jersey City location:

Here's pricing for the Crossfit Hoboken location:

Relatively similar pricing. Biggest difference is that Jersey City location will be right near public transportation whereas the Hoboken location isn't.

My husband and I were walking our dog (a pug - hardly ferocious) and passed by a family of them just before the Newport Path one day. The adult geese started hissing at and charging us. Meanwhile, my dog hadn't even noticed them and was looking everywhere but at the geese.

They are NOT friendly at all!

Has anyone else noticed a significant increase in the geese population in the waterfront areas of Jersey City (Newport, Paulus Hook)? I've seen a lot of adult geese with babies all over the place. This morning they were down near The Pier apartments by Exchange Place. There's poop ALL over!

Ugh, I LOATHE Waste Management and it's employees. My issue isn't so much with how much they do or don't pick up (although they don't exactly do a stellar job) but the amount of noise they make! It's as though they hate working overnight and will make as much noise as humanly possible when they pick up garbage. Unfortunately, I live on the 2nd floor of my building and pickup is done right outside my bedroom window. I do my best to deal with it the two mornings a week but when I'm woken up by their noise ACROSS the street, that's where I draw the line. Whoever thought overnight pickup would be a great idea is a moron.

Re: Dentist Recommendation

Found Dr. Zazzaro at Newport Dental Arts (http://www.newportdentalarts.com/ ) after needing an emergency dental appointment. I can't say enough good things about him! He has evening and weekend hours, answered all million of my questions, and is located right next to the Newport PATH station.

For what it's worth, I tried making an appointment with Dr. Lustiger. Despite it being an emergency, they told me they couldn't take me at all that day (I called first thing in the morning). AND the receptionist decided to take it upon herself to diagnose me, telling me I'd need my tooth extracted. WTF?! Hardly necessary. I still have all my teeth. She had NO clue what she was talking about.

Are the rabies shots free and the above costs are for Jersey City Dog Licenses? Can you get a rabies shot and NOT a license?

Really, you actually called inquiring about 3 cents? People who are worried about < nickle should not allowed to go out to dinner and enjoy themselves.

That's my 2 cents...


I only called after reading the comments here about the Rounding Fee. Honestly, normally, I doubt I'd even notice it on the bill. I was just curious if they knew about it or if it was intentional. Would it keep me away? Probably not but I might adjust my tip accordingly. If they take 3 cents from EVERY bill, imagine how much free, unearned money they're stealing from customers??

Hearsay is admissible in grand jury proceedings, so anything she said to reporters or anyone else would be allowed. Like K-Lo said, it becomes an issue during trial proceedings. To obtain an indictment though, anything goes.

Quote:

I will tell you how, and hope DeFazio goes this route, because it's easy. She ways about 100lbs. The dogs weigh about 400lbs. My understanding is that a dog can pull more than 4 times its weight. We in the neighborhood have all seen her brought down by these dogs. She's been dragged on her stomach and back by them. She clearly could not control them.


Agreed. My 20 lb. dog growing up pulled my grown mother down on ice twice and broke her wrist each time. Those dogs were far too large for her [or the husband] to control.

I'm curious why he hasn't been at any of the court proceedings?...

I didn't take it to mean anything about renters, I too rent. Most people who rent tend not to have much in assets to their name. Based on what we know of/about them, I doubt they have any sort of renter's insurance either.

Repossessing a car isn't the easiest, but garnishing wages isn't as difficult as you'd think [that use to be my job]. Once you have an unsatisfied judgment, you can move the court to have their employer attach a portion of their wages. I just don't want Jonathan or Gina to give up on the system.

I had heard Ohio as well.

Just because they rent doesn't necessarily make them judgment proof... There are lots of ways to collect on a judgment if someone doesn't own property - take/sell their car [if they have one], attach their wages [I know the husband works]. Don't give up on that Gina! And please, keep us posted on how Jonathan is doing.

Didn't say where he was bit but I'm guessing it was in a lower area of his body? Ouch!

When they attacked the woman and her baby she says she unleashed them "at the park at Greene and Essex streets". There is no park. It is a small private lot and she trespasses there (not that anyone would stop her with those dogs). She uses it like her own playpen. And they have gotten out other times, including attacking someone I know.


This lot that she uses as her own play pen is located next to a private parking lot with a remote-access only gate. I parked there one night and as I walked away and the gate was shutting, I heard a commotion. Those "sweet and kind" animals that she has no control over, broke free from her and ran into the parking lot. Her and her son followed and then found themselves locked in the lot. Luckily I heard this and turned around and went back to open the gate and essentially let them out [since it's remote access only] otherwise who knows what they would've done. Another example of the lack of control they have over these dogs.

I think it's wicked shady to talk about these people outside the actual incident itself. To speculate on their living situation and other specific things is tacky. Bitch about their dogs all you want but to talk about the son, the address, and other personal information is uncool.

Let's concentrate on bashing each other instead!


I wasn't bitching about anything person. The comment was an inference into the living environment those dogs were in.

Having these dogs on a leash would not have prevented the attack. These dogs have attacked other dogs while on leashes. The owners cannot control them, leash or no leash. A simple summons to the owner is not enough!
