A cross-country move for $1550?????????

You have got to be a rare breed of gullible to believe that's a legitimate quote for moving 2 people cross country.

Anybody have a good recommendation for a local carpenter/woodshop who could build me some custom studio furniture units? Helps if this person has done this kind of stuff before but probably not required.

Cheers.

Around October of last year, when I first moved into 150 Bay, I went to the Warehouse for the first time and there was a very heated 140 tenant's meeting going on. Talked to one of the tenants for a while and they mentioned this stuff about the penthouses leaking and how it was #OOPS#ing over everybody else in the building because everybody had to pony up to pay for it. Needless to say nobody was happy. Count the months since last October to today and I would doubt you're looking at this getting a resolved quickly.

If you're expecting cheese on a pulled pork sandwich, you need to work out some kinks of your own.

I think they ran 2 WTC trains back to back - because when I came down the stairs I heard someone say "The WTC train just came through a minute ago," and then another WTC train came pretty quick after that. Not sure if they were just trying to get alleviate delays or coincedence or what, it happens sometimes.


There is a certain time somewhere in the hour and probably only in the mornings where 2 WTC trains come back to back. Seen it countless times. Nothing out of the ordinary about it.

Once assigned there, we get all kinds of ridiculous excuses from people aimlessly wandering through this deserted area like I was helping my friend look for his cat....or I was on my way to visit my friend in Greenville....or I was picking up garbage in the nude when I fell on this Zucchinni. Its not a glamorous assignment but its easier than being assigned to Hudson St. where yuppie idiots ask ridiculous questions all day instead of minding their own business. Your picture was obviously taken in the morning or afternoon which means the officer is on the day tour. This means the officer has at a minimum 14 years in patrol. At the time you wandered through private property for whatever reason, this officer was not assigned a call of which he will respond to 12 in an average day. Most calls are generated by people with limited problem solving abilities and even less common sense. Riding around only increases your chances of encountering a moron. Mind your own business and get a life.


Jeez people...obvious troll. Get with the program.

Exactly. In fact, he was obviously embarrassed that I had caught him sitting there, doing nada. (And no, he was not busy \"writing up reports.\") Not surprisingly, his instinct was to try to intimidate me. Pathetic.

So he tried to turn it around by implying that *I* was the one who was doing something wrong. But then he quickly realized that this wouldn\'t fly, because I had every right to be there. He actually said \"I don\'t have a problem with you being here.\"

Again, he was desperately trying to divert attention from himself and the fact that he was caught slacking under the Turnpike. He does this routinely.

So then he decided to complain that I had parked in a \"private\" area (there were no signs indicating that this was the case). I offered to move the car. He didn\'t force the issue.

Dumb slacker cop was grasping at straws . If he really had a problem with my being there or parking --or anything on my part, then he should have approached me when I entered the area and tried to stop me. But he didn\'t do or say anything until after I had parked, left the car, and walked toward him.

Bad enough that he\'s being paid (by me) to do nothing. Even worse that tries to turn it around and use his uniform to intimidate me when caught slacking.

Tax dollars at work.


Try taking your indignant tone with him to his face and see what happens. You want answers don't you? Ask. You want action? Take some. Would love to see you express outrage about an officer's personal performance to his face.

Raising some petty complaint about somebody you don't know, who's business is not yours, on a messageboard with zero facts is a non-starter. Troll-bait at best.

Over 4 cents? Seriously? Holy crap you are ridiculous! The lengths to which people will go to express righteous indignation never ceases to amaze me. You even scanned your receipt AND rounded up your complaint by a cent. WOW. If this is all you can find to complain about in your life, I would suggest finding some perspective. I went to Teppan the other night and had the full song and dance hibachi experience. It was enjoyable and tasty. When I go back, I'll just stick with to the regular dinner without the show.

The 2 break ins that happened on Bay Street a couple weeks back occurred in broad daylight. Dumb ass is visible clear as day in the surveillance footage however.

Day or night, doesn't make a difference. Hide your GPS's and hide the mounting brackets. Mounting brackets are enough to get them into your car.

Jersey City puts street vendor of Indian food out of business; brothers mull court challenge

Monday, March 01, 2010
By KEN THORBOURNE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

A food truck vendor whose license was temporarily yanked last month after Jersey City officials traced its fixings to a three-story, mouse-infested firetrap has been permanently put out of business.

At a hearing on Jan. 29, Robert J. Vogt, the city's health officer at the time (he has since retired), permanently revoked the itinerant food vendor license issued to Shaik Manzoor, operator of the popular Banana Leaf truck that sold Indian food at Exchange Place and other Downtown locations.

The truck's food was prepared at 318 St. Paul's Ave., a residential building owned by Manzoor and his brother, Maheen Manzoor, city officials said.

When members of the Mayor's Quality of Life Task Force inspected the building on Jan. 12, they found three illegal stoves, grease-laden vents, rat droppings in rice and seasonings, and rotting eggs, among other violations.

On Feb. 18, Shaik Manzoor pleaded guilty to two health code violations in Jersey City Municipal Court and was fined $2,500 for those violations, the city's chief health inspector, H. James Boor, said.

The brothers also pleaded guilty to housing and fire code violations and were hit with another $600 fine.

They also agreed to pay an administrative penalty of $2,500 for operating a commercial business in a residential zone, Boor said.

"I don't think we got a fair shake," the Manzoors' Jersey City-based attorney, Jack Miller, said last week about the Jan. 29 hearing.

"We have immigrants, an entire family, trying to make a living, they are standing on their own two feet," Miller said. "Were mistakes made? Certainly. But to revoke it (the license) permanently? I don't think that's just."

Miller said his clients are considering a court challenge to the revocation, which they have until March 15 to file.


Mystery solved!

It's nice that they let consumers request locations, but seriously 50 requests from a local blog isn't going to make even the "feel good" grocer division of a much bigger company throw ALL their store modeling away to make it easier for people who are already going out of their way to shop them.

Put simply:
1. Trader Joes will not build a store here because they have poor corporate algorithms for determining locations.


Which is why you attempt to supplement any poor data they may have with data that actually might be useful to them i.e. by requesting their store in your neighborhood. Do you think they'd have that form if they solely relied on demographic and real estate analysis data for the area? TJ's is a big small company but I doubt their practices are as rigid as a WalMart, BestBuy, McD's, even Budweiser when it comes to sourcing retail locations.

TJs doesn't even need that. The original location in Pasadena, CA wasn't any bigger than 2000 sq feet. They've since made it a little bigger now but the lot still only has space for about 20 cars. It's off a main drag coming off a very busy freeway but it's still pretty manageable. Many, many TJ's in the LA area are probably 5000 sq feet or less and they do just fine. TJ's could do very well at a smaller location here.

That empty lot right off the Grove PATH at Chris Columbus and Marin would be pretty perfect actually. I'm from L.A. and am pretty fond of TJ's. I go to the Edgewater one all the time. A closer one would be pretty awesome.

There's no question everybody would be just as up-in-arms and blame law enforcement for a major failure if something DID happen. Except that idiots don't realize the types of things they are trying to prevent are nearly impossible to prevent.

Law enforcement's mere presence is more of a deterrent than the searches.
