Re: Hard Grove Cafe
#1
Newbie

I don't think comparing the new Hard Grove to PJ Ryans or Brightside is all that accurate. Both those bars were existing establishments when the current owners moved in. Some may even consider the bars they replaced as nuicance bars. ( PJs former occupant was known for a special menu that was sold in grams, and Brightsides's former occupant was a veiled experiment in nihilism (but kinda fun) called Booney's). Hard Grove is going into an area that hasn't had a bar in 40 years. So it's understandable that the neighbors are leary.
Hard Grove istself changed from a family friendly diner with great Cuban food, cheap, drinks, and dancing at night under the original owner; to a disco that served "not as good" food during the day, under its current owner. So thats another reason to be leary.
I prefer Rolon's above other DTjC bars, which coincidentally started on Monthomery, maybe the same spot of new HG, before moving to Keyhole in early 70's.
BTW Brightside is not an Irish bar.

sleep cheap
national discount store
99 cent dream
super discount

That meets the strict criteria of having those words in the name. Although most would also agree that ch martin and rainbow aren't necessarily targeting the rich and famous...

You mean standards of the majority of americans? Cheap is walmart, 99 cent is desperate. [/quote]

I guess you haven't walked around Newark Ave lately, as two or three of those stores are now closed.
I'd rather have the 99 cent store than some posh store that caters to the chronically boring.
If you want stores that cater to the rich and famous go to Soho, rich and bland, go to Short Hills.

Until 1967 one of the oldest structures in JC, the Van Vorst House, stood on the corner of 4th Street and Marin. Technically not where the "Bayonne Houses" are, but across the street in the project. Its a shame that JC didn't have the sense to save this awesome piece of history.
Recently as similar tragedy took place when they tore down the oldest structure in North Bergen for the Tonnele Ave Light Rail parking lot.

Van Vorst House

Probably 1 Journal Square Plaza. That's where you have to go for police reports.

lolz. cuz, ya know, all those darker people who liked guava pies don't live here anymore.


I reread my response numerous times and still can't find where I said "darker people." Maybe you can help me find that? I'm sure since you're such a fan of guava pies, you can find them at any number of other places in other AREAS of downtown.


heee heee heee Some people get riled up over the silliest things. What is it about guava pies that sets you off? Did you get bit by one when you were a kid?

Anyway, that C-Town was several incarnations ago.

I may not be one of the "darker people". I also miss the Irish Bakery on Newark Ave, and the little old Polish lady who sold sandwiches on the southwest corner of First and Newark (guess I'll have tomove to Clifton for that.)

Re: New bagel shop on Newark Ave.

Went there this morning. Free coffee was pretty good. The bagel was on par with what the place on Grand St was selling. It seemed a bit stale. Prices were good. People were friendly, I told the cashier they needed to put out a tip jar, and she looked at me like I had three heads.
I peaked into the back and didn't see a bagel boiler machine, but they could be like H&H and deliver from the main bakery.
I don't like the name.
Wonder Bagel doesn't need to worry.

I never had a problem charging less than $10 at C-Town, didn't know they had a policy against it.
I like the changes Key Foods is putting in. But I prefer the old C-Town, where you could go in hungover on a Sunday and they'd be blaring that really fast Hispanic music, and you could pick up 2 guava pies for $3.
I just hope they do something about their dumpsters. We got a lot of trash blowing around from the dumpster set-up now.

File that Stolen Vehichle report NOW! You already contacted the main authorities. Your car is probably abandoned somewhere near, so you need to get the info out now. Sorry you have to go through this.

I understand what you mean kinda late to be riding. I wonder if she was wearing a helmet. Maybe she was distraught or on drugs. When I first read the article I thought avid cyclist with helmet following a strict sustainable living regimen. But it was just some has been riding aimlessly there isn't much sympathy I can convey. I always feel bad when I hear a cyclist has been hit on a bike.

Are you serious? You must be the biggest a-hole on the planet. If she was an exercise nut riding at 3:30 am you feel sorry for her, but if she's just a random person or "has been" its her fault. How can she be a "has been", they didn't even give her age. Maybe she was riding home from work and didn't want to take a cab because the same prick who left her for dead, might have even more sinister motives when he has a single woman in his cab.
I hope you get a heart attack from your "sustainable living".

My family went here the other day. I was quite surprised by the prices, very affordable. The food was great. The service was very accomadating. The only drawback was that its such a boring, unimaginative name. Couldn't they think of something else?

I went there the other day with my kid, and there must've been 20 dogs running free. I find dog owners obnoxious. If you want to let your dog run free, go walk 'em under the turnpike, and give us back our parks.

I have to agree with most of you. The portions do not fit the prices. We went there on Easter for brunch. The service was great. The burger was pretty good, but we ordered perogies which was 8 or 12 bucks, and we got 3 small perogies. For that price I can get a half dozen huge ones in Manhattan.

Re: 50 arrested in raids throughout Greenville and Lafayette sections of Jersey City

Hi, if these raids were conducted in Greenville and Lafayette....

And the "New Jersey State Police helicopter roared over Jersey City this weekend where a crackdown on violence and drugs led to 50 arrests by city police working with a large task force of federal, state and county law enforcement."

Why was the helicopter on Sunday doing all sorts of looping downtown over Harsimus Cove and Hamilton Park?

Were they looking for something suspicious? Are they doing set up for a future crackdown downtown?

Seems odd that all the police activity and arrests took place in other areas of Jersey City, but that the noisy helicopter gets to disturb all of Jersey City residents?

Is this an intimidation thing? Like spend about two hours and do loops around the neighborhood and scare the dealers sort of thing (and annoy the taxpaying regular citizens) sort of thing?

Just curious as to the complaints about the helicopter this Sunday were downtown.

Thanks

FG


I don't mind the occasional police helicopter, although it can be annoying. The Helicopters that really annoy me are the news copters that hover over the Holland Tunnel some mornings, sometimes at 5 am. Do we really need to see that there's traffic in the Holland Tunnel on TV?

Yeah, let's blame the basketball players... or maybe they were going to the St Francis ER, only to find it was gone. I personnally think they were shopping for Vespas and decided to case the neighborhood. That 2 grand could make a nice down payment on a scooter.
It couldn't be that Hamilton Park is easy access from the Turnpike and Holland Tunnel, is known to be somewhat afluent, and has $60,000 cars parked on the street.
Not that they deserved to get robbed, but it used to be that if you could afford that type of car, you parked it in a garage. You parked your Pinto on the street.
Good job by the Police...this time.

That sounds great. If you were at the Brownstone, you could have walked to the LSC and saved the $7 parking, and the walk is quick, just down Jersey, across the dilapidated Morris Canal bridge and you're practically there.
