Re: Yoga - Downtown JC

Hello there! I admittedly haven't taken yoga in about a year but here are some places downtown you can look into:

Sun Moon on Monmouth
Jivamukti on Newark
Surya Yoga on Grove Street
Maximum Motion Fitness & Yoga on Grove Street

Like most classes, it's all about your connection to the teacher.

Good luck!

Cooperating with buyer's agents is a great idea, since many already have buyers they are working with.

Regarding open houses, the best one is the first one because the listing is fresh. After that tends to be lookie-loo's and curious people within your building. Agents like to do multiple open houses because it's a great way to meet buyer clients. And perhaps make sure the people that are interested are pre-approved with a lender that has experience in your building.

It's a beauty contest out there. Most interested people are probably looking at multiple properties in an outing, so make sure yours shows great and stands out in the crowd. Good luck!

Dec 19, 2016 3:10 PM EST The Maine elector who voted for Bernie Sanders has his vote ruled "improper." He has switched the vote to Clinton.

How about that for a plot twist? Ha!

Sadly, the stock tanked more after his statement. Not a smart move when you have shareholders! Market cap loss of $350M in two days.

Did you see what the Grubhub CEO did? He sent a memo to all employees basically telling Trump voters to resign. Their stock price has plunged over 10% since he made these comments, because they outraged many people who swore never to use their service again.


I sure did. #Boycottgrubhub is trending hard on twitter and now rumblings of lawsuits. I don't care either way what personal views people have. I just find it an interesting topic when it comes to businesses.

That's what the debate becomes. If that's the case, are the bars that continue to serve the beer associated with hate now? I dunno. Becomes messy when money is involved.

The CEO of GrubHub sure made a mess for himself and now the stock is 10% down (last I saw). All because he expressed his personal political views in an email to the employees. Messy!

I think what's starting to become very interesting is how some JC businesses are responding to the election. I'm not sure how I feel about businesses taking on a public political stance. Just in from Pint:

"Dear Pint Fans:

We love our diverse clientele. That diversity is what makes our city such a great place. We also love Yuengling - in fact we sell 230 barrels of Yuengling a year. But, Yuengling does not love us. The owners of Yuengling supporteded the racist, anti-gay, anti-women candidacy of Donald Trump. And we can't support that.

Beginning next week, Pint will no longer sell Yuengling or products from D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. The $15,000 a year we paid for their products will go to companies that do support diversity. We are also closing our account with Peerless Beverage Company, the distributor of Yuengling, until they drop Yuengling products from their lineup.

While we have a few kegs of Yuengling we already paid for and we'll pour those til they're gone, we're not worried about letting them go. We have lots of amazing craft brewers who will fill the Yuengling taps with delicious beer.

We don't expect that dropping Yuengling will change the world. But it will tell our neighbors, our friends, and you, that when you come to Pint you're welcome here - regardless of who you love, what you look like, or whether you sit or stand to pee.

Thanks for being our customers -

Wolf Sterling, Owner
Tommy DeMaio, General Manager"

It seems the Village hasn't gotten its groove yet. Multiple empty spaces on Newark across from UR and surrounding blocks. Golden Grille has shuttered too.

He killed an innocent man who was on his way home to Gull's Cove. I hope he gets the maximum sentence as well.

But remember living in Newport has its faults. Living on the higher floors means longer travel time to leave the house, if you forget something oh well there's another 15 minutes wasted. Being amongst different walks of life, smelling weird foods, and people. Hoping that bug infestation will not prevail in your neck of the woods. Not knowing who you're neighbors are, absentee landlords who rent out the little apartment next-door to you. Fellow tenants who only live there a few months at a pop then a new one arrives. Sounds like a vacation to me. Hotel Newport where everyday seems like a getaway.


I'm kind of new here so someone help me.. is this person serious?

The beauty of the location is that you're minutes away from either Van Vorst/Grove Street and Paulus Hook walking along the Light Rail.

Plus the Beer Garden is opening up soon :) Once the Hilton breaks ground (last reported to be the end of this year) I'm sure the retail spaces at the foot of the buildings will begin to fill for all the new tourists.

The building has very few investors compared to other luxury hi-rises, there's a ton of people living there.

Too true. As I approached work today, the sidewalk construction was accompanied by a massive sign which read "Your Tax Dollars Hard at Work - Mayor Healy"

Whatever it takes!

I noticed this as well with the trees and if you need help watering, I'm all over it.

On a side note, as I type this, I'm watching sidewalk corners on Brunswick being broken up and leveled out nicely, looking very good.

Let's keep this up!

I apologize if I'm late with this (I haven't noticed it posted elsewhere) but here's a look at the proposed plan that was unveiled last week (from the JC Waterfront Parks Conservancy website, http://www.jcwpc.org/ ):






I think it looks great, although there is a lot of stone

Thoughts?

I'm floored that any developer would take on that location if they had any clue as to how difficult sales will be given the cast of characters on that block. Nothing like a broker marching potential buyers thru the drug deals, drunks, etc as they're going to check out their dreamhome.



It has to start somewhere, right? You could have said the same thing of all of downtown at some point or another. It's one thing to have to deal with an entire town of seedy characters but one block on Wayne? Much easier to deal with.

Just remember what the Grove St path area looked like before Grove Pointe, Duane Reade and Starbucks came in. It's definitely changed and will continue to do so.

Oops, I'm being positive :) Sorry guys!

Excellent Sammy. Do you happen to have any links?

I thought the condos were behind the tall tower, in the 9-story homes (2nd picture of the rendering).

Magic Johnson's new restaurant in XChange Place opens

Food that’s ‘Magic!’
Magic Johnson Marketplace restaurant opens in Exchange Place
by Gene Ritchings
Reporter correspondent


NBA basketball legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson paid a visit to the new Magic Johnson Marketplace restaurant at 95 Greene St. in the busy Exchange Place area of town Wednesday.

Johnson chatted with customers and fans, toured the restaurant – the first Magic Johnson Marketplace in the nation – spent time meeting with the staff at the location, and sampled some of his favorite menu items.

The eatery is open for breakfast and lunch. It offers fresh salads, grilled entrees, made-to-order deli sandwiches, coffee, and “grab and go” options.

On Wednesday, the line of fast food customers and basketball fans began forming around the block at 8:30 a.m. in front of the restaurant. Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the former star of the Los Angeles Lakers spent about three hours signing autographs for the first 200 guests in line.

Customers are surrounded by imagery and artwork that tells the Magic Johnson story.

The restaurant opened for business in January, and according to Tara Baten of SodexoMAGIC, the cafe’s management company, business has been “terrific.”

Very nice.

Sawa is definitely coming to Gull's Cove. It's my understanding that they've decided to take less space and is creating a second level of seating, similar to Harbor Casino and The Merchant.

Other businesses are in the process of negotiating their leases and once finalized, they'll be announced in a big way. One of them, if they can work it out, will be a tremendous addition to the neighborhood.
