Re: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


We went on Monday morning. Hot Donut sign was on. Glazed donuts churning through the machine in the window. So I ordered a dozen glazed. We waited about 15 minutes to get the donuts at the other end (there were only about four other people in line). And we got a box of cold, hard, glazed donuts. I considered just leaving them there.

Sprout(s) at 70 Columbus

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Does anyone know anything about the new market opening up in 70 Columbus? I'd read somewhere a while back that the space had been leased to Sunac Natural Market, but the signage up definitely says Sprout (or Sprouts) Sprouts Markets (the ones you tend to see on the east coast) have totally different signage, so I am not sure it's the same company.

I imagine it will be fairly small, but it would be great to have a place to stop on the way home from the PATH (when the Farmer's Market isn't happening ... and you know, before WF.)

Re: No heat in apartment

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Thanks for the information and suggestions (Jerseymom that video was great!)

Strangely, parts of my floor are warm, just not the baseboard heaters. So I might be looking at a conversion that did not include 100% circulation of the hot water, only where the old units used to be.

Two years ago they were not giving off ANY head and the super bled them. I had heat after that, but I've never really had good heat.

The good news is that it has warmed up in the apartment.

Thanks all for the help!

I know I'm going to sound like an asshat for asking this question, but:

My apartment has baseboard "heat" - but rarely gets all that warm. I'm on the top floor of a poorly insulated walk up with the entire west wall made of exposed brick (that I seriously think is the actual brick you see on the outside).

Anway, all yesterday my hot water heater was struggling and making gurgling noises (low pressure from the work that Suez is doing - I'm in Paulus Hook). Anyway, the temp in the apartment dropped quite a bit overnight.

Here's the stupid question: If there is no water, is that affecting my heating? Is that a constant flow? Or is the water in the pipes just hanging out there getting heated and creating warmth.

I'll take my punishment here before calling my super. Thanks.

Omani Grocery Items?
#6
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Does anyone have any suggestions for where I might find Omani grocery items (black limes, in particular)? I know I can order them on Amazon, but if there's a store I can support in JC, I'd rather do that. If they've got sumac, saffron, etc., all the better.

Re: Parking Issues Around Hamilton Park
#7
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I live in Paulus Hook (and drive a tiny car). The only enforcement in our zone is to ticket during street cleaning and to ticket if people park where there is a temporary no-parking sign.

No one is enforcing the permit parking. At all.

St. Peter's Prep students take up spots all the time and don't have resident permits. Construction workers park daily all along Van Vorst and Morris without permits. Seemingly 30% of available street parking is marked with temporary No Parking signs because of construction or street work. I often have to park my car in a lot for $35 per day because it's less expensive than getting a $50 street cleaning ticket.

I have no idea why the parking authority is not enforcing the resident permit issue.

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. ...

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?

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?
#17
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??

Just can't stay away


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.

Car/Pedestrian accident on Washington and Morris
#21
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.

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

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.

Re: Reasonably Priced Short Term Parking Lot/Garage Downtown?

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.
