Re: How did you come to live in Jersey City?

Got a job in NYC that required me to relocate. Didn't want to give up the comforts to which I've grown accustomed like a car, washer/dryer in my apartment, and living without roommates. Couldn't find what I was looking for in the city and someone suggested that I check out JC, especially since my commute is to the financial district. I was satisfied with what I saw when I came to visit and now here I am!

Thanks for the photos. I remember you taking those pictures =)

Also, this is going to sound more like a craigslist missed connections than a jclist.com post, but could the guy wearing a blue shirt and dark blue shorts (or maybe black shorts?) that rode near me for part of the ride (close to the front) and also parked his bike near mine on the waterfront pm me? I'm a girl with brown hair and was wearing a white shirt, black shorts, and a backpack.

To the folks who spent the time and energy organizing this - Great job and thanks!


I second that---huge thanks! And thanks to the JCPD for helping keep everyone safe.

I heard someone (who appeared to be friends with the organizers) say there were 600 people there. The original plan was to cap it at 400.

My bike has been sitting unused in my living room since I moved to JC 10 months ago; I'm excited to dust it off and pump up the tires!

I'll also add that my roommate who is from Kansas City said "It was ok, but certainly not like any BBQ I've ever had, back home in KC or elsewhere." Personally, I think that calling it KC Style BBQ is disingenuous, since it is anything but. KC style has lots of sauce on it and as I noted, this was very dry.


Huh. When I got the pulled pork, it had lots of sauce on it and was anything but dry.

I agree that it's nice to be able to bring what you want to drink, and for a fraction of the price.

I do wonder, however, if more licenses were available to local business, if local businesses might have a better chance at success? I've never been in the restaurant business, but isn't it the case that they often make a ton of money off alcohol sales? To the extent selling alcohol would help local restaurants with their bottom line---and hopefully help them stay in business---that seems to me to be another reason for the city (or state?) to stop being stupid about this.

This is my biggest pet peeve about restaurants in Jersey City: if the place isn't at least a bit fancy-schmancy, it's going to be BYOB, at best.


This place is basically just a grill (where I assume they roast the pigs---I presume the smoker is outside somewhere) and a counter. There are no tables to speak of. Right now it looks like it's set up for takeout only and, frankly, it doesn't look like there's enough room to ever do much more than that.

But I agree with your larger point that there needs to be more in the way of liquor license availability around these parts.

I went this evening. I'll definitely be going back.

I had the pulled pork platter and a side of mashed sweet potatoes. The pulled pork was very tender and not too fatty. The sauce was very good---definitely a Kansas City sauce as opposed to a North Carolina sauce, but not too sweet and also a little spicy. They serve the pork mixed with some sauce, which is okay with me because I'd have added sauce anyway, but I know some bbq purists will object to that. The sweet potatoes were also very good, but I only got them because they were out of baked beans.

My platter was $10 and I only ate half of it---it easily made two meals for me (an admittedly not-so-big girl). The other half will be tomorrow's lunch.

Next time I think I'll try the ribs (whole rack for $18 and half rack for $9) and the baked beans.

I went to Andreas this weekend and while I'll probably more often frequent 2nd Street because it's much closer to me, I must say that Andreas was awesome. Highly recommend.

Big Drum did good work for me, for a good price. A couple of weeks ago they were running a 20% off sale. Not sure if it's still going on.

Is Green actually going to connect to 2nd St. now? Because as it is, driving north from Paulus Hook, you have to turn off Green St. and connect back to Washington to get to 2nd St.

Exactly right. Most teachers are hardworking and put up with an unimaginable amount of crap from the kids and their parents (but mostly the parents).

Until people learn to clean up after their damn dogs, this whole city should be pet-free as far as I'm concerned.

Really? Is that because you say so or do you have a valid argument to that effect?

If what you say is true, then why don't we lock YOU up? Maybe it's not a huge leap from a callous attitude toward mentally-ill, homeless individuals to callous treatment of those who are sane and able-bodied. Under the wrong conditions, history shows that an otherwise timid citizen can be quite dangerous indeed.


Even if you don't believe that there's not such a huge step between lashing out at property and doing the same to people, he's still damaging property---which is plenty of reason to lock him up. Car scratches---especially if they are more than surface scratches---are very expensive to repair.

People on this thread have just told you they saw him scratching cars and other property. What more proof do you need?

Call the police and have this guy locked up. It's not a huge leap from damaging property to damaging people.

I don't know about LSP after dark (although I probably wouldn't do it). I see often see people running along the waterfront when I'm coming home from work after dark; up through at least 8pm there are enough people around such that it would probably be pretty safe to go from Paulus Hook up the waterfront into Newport.

Re: Gov Christie wants to cut unempluyment benefits $50 a week

Is he crazy? People on unemployment tend to need all the money they can get.


Sure. I also need all the money I can get. But, right now, this state is facing a fiscal crisis and state government either needs to (1) reduce expenditures or (2) increase revenue. Since Christie isn't going to raise taxes and increase revenue, he needs to reduce expenditures. One way to do this is to cut entitlements.

Think about it this way---would you be willing to let the state take more of your paycheck and transfer it directly to someone who isn't working? I sure wouldn't and, accordingly, am perfectly happy to see benefits cut.

Like most government offices, schools have 50% more administrative staff than they need. We can't lay off teachers (class sizes are already too large), but schools are a government bureaucracy like any other government bureaucracy and there is much fat that can be cut.
