Re: Progressive Catholic Church in Jersey City?

I second (third?) OLC. However, if you're looking for a progressive, vibrant, welcoming Catholic community, The Church of St. Francis Xavier is wonderful. It's on 16th and 6th, a fairly quick PATH ride on Saturday night or Sunday morning. Music is great, ministry to the marginalized is great, plus, it's a beautiful space. It's a Jesuit apostolate.

Re: Reduction in Car Insurance Rates due to Zip Code

Interesting! I have used progressive for the past five years. After using that plug-in sort of thing for six months, I've saved significantly. I, too, live in 07302. I wonder if I should give them a shout to see about the renewal. ...

the associated liability of my zip code has improved (07302).

I am interested to know if anyone else has seen a similar? We all know the 'dynamics' of JC have changed (esp downtown)... and this seems to be quantitative proof.

I've found that submitting the online form for Time to Wash the day before the pick-up is needed works best. Also, be sure to use the www.timetowashlaundry.com form. Their old form is still up, but the one listed here is preferred.

I wholeheartedly agree with the beauty of finally giving in and doing a wash and fold service! I gave in two years ago. I just wanted to throw in another recommendation: Time to Wash Laundry.
http://www.yelp.com/biz/time-to-wash-jersey-city

Easy online scheduling. Same day service (except for dry cleaning). Always on time! And when I'm running late, Daryl is super great about working with my schedule. Paypal billing. Love everything about it. Long live the wash and fold!

Small propane tank?

Just can't stay away


I bought a small grill that used a little propane tank. I decided to return the grill but I don't know what to do with the tank? It was used for about 10 minutes, otherwise it's full. I can't seem to figure out how to properly get rid of it (does anyone want it?).

Thank you, SteveWilson29. That's going to be plan D. I cannot get the mattress down five flights of stairs out to the street which is why I'm looking for someone to come pick it up. Thanks, though.

Mattress Removal?
#8
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I've ordered a new mattress from Tuft & Needle which means no nice man from a furniture store is going to come over to remove my current mattress.

I realize that nearly no one will accept mattresses (plus, it's five years old), but does anyone have suggestions for a mattress pick up and disposal that won't cost a fortune?

(I'm on the fifth floor of a walk up, so dragging it down the stairs on my own will not be happening.)

Re: Bakery by Brownstone??

My experience there was hideous. We purchased a half dozen whoopie pies. They were hard as rocks. The icing in the middle was crumbling. 100% inedible. But we were already at a friend's house for dinner, so we were out dessert and weren't interested in any replacement.

Turns out, they'd held some sort of Whoopie Pie celebration earlier in the week - like four or five days before we bought ours. They were likely leftovers.

Thankfully there are a couple of bakeries very near by (on Jersey and on Grand) who make fresh items.

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
#12
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.

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.

Re: Cleaning Service

Just can't stay away


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??
