Re: UBER - car service in Jersey City
#1
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Has anyone taken Uber to EWR at an off-peak time? I'll need a pick up at 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. I'm worried about the inability to pre-book a ride. The website says to just open the app 15-20 minutes earlier than you normally would for an early morning airport pick up. But I wonder about the availability early on a Saturday.

Also, thank you to "Joel" - I used your promo code.

And FYI, I just tried to online book my regular car service ride to EWR for $25. (With United Limo.). Because of the skyway closure, their $25 trip is now $35. I told the man on the phone that the ValuPak came in the mail yesterday with the $25 price. He didn't seem to care.

I actually overheard the Lighthorse manager talking to the detective, explaining that their cameras don't face that direction. Hopefully, something across the street captured it.

Car/Pedestrian accident on Washington and Morris
#3
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Does anyone know the outcome of the accident on Washington Street around 6:15 this evening?

Someone making a u-turn on Washington hit a woman and her child. When I arrived, the child was being transported to the hospital (with non-life threatening injuries according to the detective's radio). But the woman was under the minivan. There was not much of a rush to lift the mini-van to remove her.

After about 15 minutes, she was removed from under the minivan and put on a stretcher. There was not any immediate life-saving action taken and no movement from the woman. I cannot believe how long she was just lying under the minivan in the middle of the road. Someone near by said that the driver moved reversed to try to free her, but ended up driving forward again and she was not freed.

Absolutely heartbreaking. Has anyone heard anything? The block between Sussex and Morris is still taped off with police activity.

From the Jersey City homepage, a friendly reminder:

"The Jersey City Parking Authority will resume alternate side parking regulations and commence ticketing beginning Thursday, March 13, 2014."

I suppose we'll see how many different versions of this show up depending on the source.

There were indeed "no parking" signs. But it looked like there were at least a half dozen cars being towed when I drove by about 2 hours ago. The car on the first tow bed had Florida plates. Welcome!

Just about drove through a new one on the corner of Washington and Sussex. It's sort of hidden. Probably smart for there to be one on that corner because of the grammar school.

Maybe it would be useful for the city to have a map on the website that shows where all of the new stop signs are (and maybe have it in the Journal or what-have-you). If people are looking for them, they *might* actually stop.

Re: Packages being stolen downtown again & seeing Spotters

Just can't stay away


It's that time of year! On Wednesday a package from Williams Sonoma was left in the vestibule of our walk up on Sussex Street. UPS marked the package delivered. When I returned from work at 4:30, the package was gone. It's entirely possible that it was taken by someone in my building (10 units), but we usually will bring each other's deliveries in or to the door. I assume it was taken by someone looking for Christmas deliveries.

I usually have my deliveries sent to work because of this problem, but this was actually a gift someone was sending to me. Bah Humbug.

If you live in Paulus Hook, the Maddox was running a reduced rate for monthly parking for Paulus Hook residents. I used it for three months this summer while I was travelling. It was about $150 for the month. The reduced rate may have expired, but it's all valet and very safe/clean.

I'm in Paulus Hook and I've had a skunk near the apartment four or five times this summer, who apparently was running into something he wanted to deter. Nothing like the sweet smell of skunk on a summer evening!

Sam A.M., the new coffee/brunch/lunch place on Morris (between Warren and Washington) will be serving Stumptown as well!

I don't think they're actually open yet (sam-am.com) but tomorrow between 10 a.m. and noon they'll be giving out free Stumptown coffee. Whoopie!!

I've used the coupons that come in the Valpak to get home. Usually, if you're below 50th, you can get to JC for $25-28 plus the toll and tip. So, a lot less than $60 plus tip. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is NYNJ Limo.

I still stand by my Nespresso D290 for espresso and my trust Toddy for cold press. I'm happy to give up any number of things in order to fit the Toddy in my small kitchen. And thankfully I don't work too far from an Oren's.

I'm currently in Ireland for a few weeks, dying for actually coffee. I could make a coffee table book full of the photos of what constitutes a latte or iced coffee here. All include whipped cream. The latter includes a blender.

Our building on Sussex (between Washington and Warren) was broken into again this weekend. The basement door was pried open and a bike was stolen. So annoying (and really crappy for the guy who lost his bike).

I used Clean Popo once. They sent two cleaning staff and someone who I imagine was the manager? It was $120 for the cleaning. While I have to say that it was quick clean, it wasn't a thorough clean. Corners of the floors were still dusty, the outside of the refrigerator was still dirty (especially the handle and the side adjacent to the stove, etc.

I wouldn't use them again.

I'd really love to find an independent cleaner who people recommend. Why is it so difficult??

Re: PATH every 35 minutes on the weekends???
#25
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I wrote to the PA expressing my concerns about the weekend and late night schedule (specifically on the 33/JSQ line). Here is the response (nothing really of interest):

Thanks for reaching out.

I have passed along your feedback to the Transportation Department, which manages the service schedule. The recent schedule change is necessary in order to allow for work on our capital programs to stay on track, and for post-Sandy repairs to be completed. Our Transportation Division takes a number of factors into account when suggesting changes to the schedule, including travel demand forecasts, ridership patterns, passenger feedback, and connections to other services, to name a few.

As you may recall, the PATH system sustained extensive system-wide damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy. Restoration and recovery alone is estimated to cost $1.3 billion. Though trains are running, our system is still suffering from signal and power problems, and deteriorating track conditions, much of which came as a direct result of the system being submerged in salt water. In some sections, the water sat for days.

At the same time, we are very aware of the growing demand for PATH in the region, and have a number of modernization and capital projects in process to help expand capacity. Though we lost a few months of progress on these programs due to Superstorm Sandy, work is now being done again. You can read about some of these programs here: http://www.panynj.gov/path/path-modernization.html. In the near future, we are also planning on expanding the platform capacity for stations on the Newark – WTC line to allow for 10-car trains. We are currently only able to run 8-car trains on that line due to shorter platforms at Grove Street Station. With the purchase of additional cars, we will also be able to expand our schedule once the Automatic Train Control signal program has been completed.

We targeted our service reductions to inconvenience the least amount of passengers possible. We appreciate your understanding and patience with the new schedule, and thank you for sharing your feedback. The Port Authority of NY and NJ appreciates your patronage of the PATH system.

Sincerely,
Chris

PATH Customer Service

Just went this morning. The croissant was fantastic (and not overly huge).

I agree that the coffee is pretty weak (literally and figuratively). Sometimes I don't want an espresso. And when I'm having a rich piece of bread, I'd prefer a dark rich coffee.

One weird thing, they're still putting up decoration and working on things. There was a guy drilling right above where the microwave/prep area was. And they didn't put a cover over anything. Wall dust from the drilling settling all over the prep area.

However, I AM SO HAPPY IT'S HERE!

I'm not at the point where I need to have my hardwood floors sanded and refinished, but I would like to have my floors really cleaned.

Does anyone know anyone (or company) who does this? When I lived in the midwest, COIT cleaned hardwood, but it doesn't look like it's available here.

Brewster,

As a former member of the faculty at Prep, I can say honestly that there are, of course, sports minded students at St. Peter's. But for the atmosphere to be referred to as "marine-jock" by Neverleft is inaccurate. Students who are interested in the arts, in service, in extracurricular academic activities, etc. can all succeed at Prep.

While you're not Catholic, please know that students of all faith traditions are welcome at Prep. The theology coursework is rigorous and encompasses scripture, social justice and world religions, among others. The Jesuit identity is important and seeks, as we say, to form the whole person.

As you know, your son should be where he'll thrive. McNair and Prep are both excellent choices. Congratulations!
