Re: Car Dealers on 440
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


i've had three experience with the dealers at 440, walsh dodge (which is no longer there, its next to the metro honda), difeo ford and metro honda...

the walsh dodge sales experience was alright.. very friendly (who wouldn't be?) and they know their crap. The service end of it was sub-par at best. I bought a mercury from there and because it was a car they didn't sepcialize at the timem it was like pulling teeth to get something fixed. for instance, i had a oil leak, took it to get serviced. it took 2 days for me to get my vehicle back (they prvided a crappy deawoo in the meantime) and when i took it home, the whole oil tank popped. they had to tow it back to their shop and it took another week to get everything fixed.

the difeo ford sales/service team both get a horrible rating from me. they took my father for a fool and sold him a DEMO car at ticket price. yes granted it was not their fault but a when did salesman integrity go out the window? the difeo service is spotty as well. they've done things to the car without consent and then demand it be paid. be careful at difeo.

finally, i bought a vehicle this past year at metro honda. on the day of purchase everything seemed smooth. i needed my father to co-sign and so they financial manager told us where to sign to get the deal as such. it just so happened the only way i would get the car would be if he was a CO-BUYER, which the financial manager did. they bold-face lied and when the issue was brought up to the salesman, he washed his hands of it. everyone at that place washed their hands of it (suprisingly, a week after i got the car, the finance guy was let-go). the only thing good about this place is the service. i've been in and out for a tire pressure guage check and oil change.

i wouldn't recommend any of these places to shop for a new car. also, do your research until you know what you want and don't ever sign unless you read what your signing. yes it sounds obvious but it's crazy how these dealers get you. also make sure you have someone else present and DO NOT EVER MAKE AN EDUCATED GUESS to what the financce guy/salesman is saying. if at any point you don't understand, ASK. and keep asking until you're 100% sure of the deal. not 98, 99, but 100% sure. good luck!

i believe it MAY be open only friday-sunday, if at all...

there are two places in the heights on palisade (one being an italian/ecuadorian restaurant) that should still be standing that serve ecuadorian food... other then that i would suggest venturing off to union city...

there's one place in particular that serves a really good encebollado (hang-over special) close to jersey city... it's across the street from the dunking donuts on kennedy right on the jersey city/union city border....

i'm a 2004 Dickinson High School Alum....

I maybe came into contact with harvey about twice throughout my 4 years at the school... and to be quite honest, i don't remember them being pleasant...

i'd always see him around the halls wondering what the hell he really did at the school... he seemed to just be there to have an extra body around and i know he held more clout than other staff members, just didn't know his exact position in the school...

never saw him do much, and it actually seemed like he was never interested in being there

bottom line: I'M NOT SURPRISED

Allege 3 teens among group that attacked 4

Jersey Journal
Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Three teenage boys, two of them 15 and one 16, were arrested on charges of attacking and robbing four Ferris High School students in Jersey City on Friday, reports said.

The four students, ages 15 and 16, were walking west on Montgomery Street at around 3:18 p.m. when a group of roughly 14 boys and two girls pounced on them, reports said.

Two victims each had iPods stolen valued at $200 each, reports said. Two other victims escaped without being robbed, but they were punched and kicked, as was one of the boys who lost his iPod, reports said.

Three teens were arrested Monday on charges of robbery, reports said. A 15-year-old was additionally charged with resisting arrest, reports said.


TRY THEM AS ADULTS!!! SHOW THEM SOMEING ABOUT "being pounced on"

Re: JC regulations on Recycling and Garbage-Anyone know?

Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


i live in an apartment building and i'm almost positive that not everyone recycles... you just honestly have to do your best to get the garbage seperated... they have different bins and designated areas of where to leave what...

SIDE NOTE:

Does anyone know about any type of regulations of when the garbage/recycling is picked up? i don't see them in the morning (7-8 AM) anymore and i think it may have to do with the traffic it holds up at such a rush hour... but recently they have been coming around at like 3-4AM!!! and these trucks and people aren't the quietest either... this past sunday it was 3:53AM and the f'n truck wouldn't start... never mind the flashing lights, the garbage cans being dragged on the floor, the garbage men grunting and cursing, and garbage being crushed together... now i have a truck that wont start and the key being turned giving it that loud revving (didn't spell check) noise... it was ridiculous...

oh sht! wassup rajah, it's diego..

um the parking authority isn't too crazy around the area except for street cleaning... to be on the safe side i'd follow the 9 to 9... but meter maids are hardly around anyway... from experience... its usually "no meter no quarter"

as for those parking lots... i'm trying to think of where it's on... the only space that i can think of is on fairmount... is that it?

on a side note: when's the new spot opening?

great point ^^

however i feel there are much dire streets in jersey city that need repaving... ok newark is ok... but one street that DEF needs to be paved is christopher columbus drive (or is it ave or st?) anyway... its a hell to drive up columbus to get to montgomery...

btw, i'm not sure if that was you're quesiton about the rumor or not...

i would LOVE to think that they have some type of respect and not go after a mother and her child but then again i wouldn't be surprised with the scum that the jersey city projects and such produce

Saying she meets "weird people" at clubs in New York City, a 34-year-old Jersey City woman showed up at the Jersey City Medical Center on Sunday afternoon with multiple stab wounds, reports said.

The victim said, she parties too hard, drinks too hard and meets all kinds of weird people in the club," but declined to say what club she visited or share any other information with police, reports said.

This doesn't really have anything to do with the wolfpacks but it does relate to the annoying kids.

There was a time i was on the path train and there was this kid sitting opposite me. He can't have been over 16. He proceeds to unroll his skull cap over his face and it had the eyes and mouth cut out of it. He then takes out a gun which i only realize a couple of seconds later is actually fake. He appears to keep cocking it keeping it slightly hidden from view. Everyone else on the train was half asleep and didn't notice what was going on, but within those few seconds before i realized it was fake, i had considered doing some serious damage to him.

If anyone had reacted and say knocked that kid unconcious (or a cop shot him), i bet his mother would be on the 10'oclock news saying what a good kid he is, how he had never done anything wrong and this is some senseless adult who should be ashamed of themselves.


AMEN!

i understand how this knockout "game" works but i haven't heard that for some time now... these packs nowadays are for the most part kids looking to cause trouble and in that maybe get something out of it (they check the pockets of their victims once the deed is done)

yeah i KNOW this...

fairview runs from westside then becomes fairmount after monticello...

the nicer parts are closest to kennedy blvd, coming from bergen and westside... it starts getting a little shady from bergen on... it's like a 15 minute walk to jsq...

hope this helps...

oh yeah jewett is the same way... between bergen and kennedy, the top half closest to kennedy is the best... however i think jewett between westside and kennedy is all pretty well off...

Re: Bayonne man shot and killed in Greenville
#28

Tuesday, February 03, 2009
By MICHAELANGELO CONTE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER
Homicide detectives have arrested a 16-year-old Jersey City boy, charging him with gunning down a 21-year-old Bayonne man, the father of a 7-month-old boy, on the first anniversary of his marriage.

"I told my son his father isn't coming home," a tearful Tasheera Williams said yesterday. Nigel Gore, of West 55th, was fatally shot at Rutgers Avenue and Sheffield Street at 9:12 p.m. Friday.

Gathered at his home last night, Gore's family members took little solace from the fact the Oak Street boy turned himself in to authorities yesterday morning at the Duncan Avenue headquarters of the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office's Homicide Squad. Due to his age, officials have not revealed his identity.

On the night Gore died, Williams said she raced to the Jersey City Medical Center. She soon learned that Omari, her baby, no longer had a father.

"I screamed," Williams said last night, recalling the scene. "I fell on the floor. I started banging on the floor and I cried so loud. I screamed 'No, No, No.' That's when someone said 'Do you want to see him?'" Williams said.

"It was unreal," she continued. "His eyes weren't closed all the way. I kept wishing he would get up. I just kissed him on the forehead."

Born in Antigua, Gore came to the United States in July 2001. In 2006 he graduated from Lincoln High School in Jersey City where he played varsity soccer and junior varsity basketball. He moved to Bayonne in February last year and worked in construction for a Brooklyn company, his sister Jellene Gore said last night.

"Yesterday we picked out the casket and it was really the hardest part," said Jellene Gore. "I think it really sank in today."

The night Gore died, he had gone to a friend's home to play games, Williams said.

Investigators believe the 16-year-old and another male approached Gore and another man on the street and the juvenile fired a revolver multiple times, DeFazio said.

An autopsy determined Gore was shot in the hip and the bullet caused fatal internal damage, DeFazio said.

The man with Gore was treated and released from the Jersey City Medical Center, he said.

Police have not determined the motive for the shooting but say it was not a robbery and it was not random and continue to look for the man who was with the Oak Street boy, DeFazio said.

Anyone with information about the murder is asked to call homicide detectives at (201) 915-1345.

A viewing for Nigel Gore will be held Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Watson Mortuary Service, 26 Gifford Ave., with the burial on Saturday.



-- what a damn shame. a 16-year old? charge the parents too! they deserve the a decent chunk of blame for such a senseless crime.
