Red paint on curbs
#1
Newbie
Newbie


Does anyone know what the red paint along portions of some of the curbs mean? I used to park in some spots that seemed legitimate, didn't overlap crosswalks or come too close to fire hydrants, and now those spots have red painted curbs and, well I just assume you shouldn't park there.

Is that really what it means? I don't think I've seen that color used anywhere else. Or maybe I'm stupid, in which case I have no doubt that you guys will let me know that I am.

There is one thing I can say for this city in relevance to the silliness that occurs when people drink.

There is one thing that makes a place like New York great, and it's all because of the people that are there. They are many, and they are diverse. Not all of that is positive, but not everything is always going to be either. The west village, for example, is a terrific place. However, if you're hanging out around there, let's say 7th ave around christopher and surrounding areas, it's loud, crowded, silly, and maybe a tad obnoxious. But we know that, and would still say it's a great place.

That being said, when more people start to gather and do things in Jersey City, why would we be surprised when people have a good time and get rowdy? You can't ban them.. really...

Someone earlier said that they are able to handle themselves well, at the same time as getting even shit-faced. I agree, I don't understand why everyone can't be like that. But, there are certainly worse things than getting a little over-the-top when you drink. If they're not hurting anyone, maybe it just means it's time for them to go home.

Maybe I'm wrong about all that though. Maybe the majority of people here are looking for Jersey city to be like a Ridgewood or a Red Bank (for those of you who are familiar with those locations) rather than a New York? That's not for me. What do you think?

My water is STILL not on. Since yesterday. It's amazing how many things you just can't do when there isn't running water.

24 Hours Anyone??
#6
Newbie

Does anyone know if there are any places around here, be it a food store, restaurant, anything really, that is open 24 hours? I find myself often at 1 AM remembering that I need to buy Milk, or am really hungry and don't have anything here, and I'm at a loss. I don't have a car around, so I was hoping something in the downtown area was open late.

2nd st deli/bakery is probably one of my most favorite things about living downtown. GREAT sandwiches. A large (yes, it's big) chicken parm sandwich is exactly $5.90. Beat that.

The only thing you want to do is not arrive at 12 PM. Because you'll wait in line.

All the police around here get their lunch there. I always thought that was neat.

If you haven't been there, just go. Really.

Is your primary concern that the dogs are peeing in the children's play area?

Let me get this straight. If you didn't know dogs were peeing there, you'd be more comfortable with your kids putting their hands on things outside, and then no big deal if their hands end up in their mouth, eyes, etc?

Are you going to do anything about birds that poo when they fly over? Or squirrels that inevitably do their business everywhere? Other animals? Please. So their dogs were out. I doubt they were there with the immediate attention of pissing on your kids. If they attack you or someone, then that's different.

Just relax, really. This area has come a long way, from heavy drug traffic and other criminal activities. Now the biggest concern is where people's dogs are running around?

I agree!! I know a lot of people who take a look around, pass judgement on the type of people they see, and decide that they think it's unsafe. Clearly they haven't gotten to live in a real city.

I once brought a friend to where I was living in Queens. I liked it there, it was fine, but it is nicer here in Jersey City. She was walking from the train with me, and decided she didn't like it. I asked her why and she said "There's too much diversity".

I wanted to cry.

I always heard that the shoes are a sign of where you find your dealer.

But, I see the shoes everywhere! OH well.

Anytime of the day is not safe. Police presence zero. The Downtown of Jersey City is in a way more perilous than Avenue C or D or E in Manhattan. The only lifeline you have is the Dixon Mills shuttle & then ask yourself why is there a shuttle for just a few blocks. More than a convenience, it's a lifesaver.


So.. where's Avenue E huh?

Yeah.. ok. I think that's a pretty ignorant statement.

Re: Teen shot in face this afternoon....

The location was specified, clearly - it occurred just outside a laundromat at the intersection of van horne and communipaw. It doesn't get more specific than that. The idea that it needs to be noted that this is not located in Downtown Jersey City is just silly. My point is that just because it happened in Bergen/Lafayette doesn't make it any more acceptable.

I know everyone likes to know where things happen, but a lot of people are convinced, as was mentioned above, that they aren't subject to awful things like that just because they're downtown, or anywhere for that matter. It doesn't really matter, this violence can happen anywhere. Don't be naive, the police here work for the same city as the police who work for the area at the intersection of van horne and communipaw.

Just because a hispanic dude stabs a black girl in harlem doesn't make it acceptable, and why would you sigh in relief just because you don't live there?

Gang violence is real. There isn't always a reason why bad things happen. Face it. Everyone keep your head about yourself.

I just moved in on Jersey Ave, between 2nd and 3rd st. I heard someone further up jersey ave has fios and also someone on 2nd st has fios. I was told it's not available to me. Am I being told wrong? Should I call up and hassle them?
