Yes, our Mini Cooper got scratched by him a few years ago. Also on one of the really cold early mornings last winter, my wife found him sleeping in the entrance hall of our building. (She let him continue to sleep there as it was just too cold for anyone to be outside.) I remember talking to him on Barrow street in 2011 when we were surveying the condo unit, which we ended up in buying. He smashes liqueur bottles on the street to pieces--not sure how often he does this. Last year, I briefly saw him with a new jacket, and I thought he had moved to a different part of town.


Were the scratches XXX by any chance? I had this happen and have been thinking it was him ever since I asked him not to smash his wine jugs on the sidewalk.


The scratch on our Mini is about a 3 inch long straight line. We just put touch-up paint and moved on.


Ah, gee. How magnanimous of you.

The guy's pictured as comatose on a gurney and you are talking about your precious mini cooper.


Relax, we are making a side note and it is about the gentleman in question. Your comment is the only thing derailing this thread.

Thought maybe we could start a thread of sidewalks that store owners and buildings are responsible for that have not been taken care of. If you dont like the idea I will delete thread. The hope is that businesses will see this and feel ashamed.

Homeless man critical after Jersey City hit-and-run
#8
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I hope it is not who I think it is but the wine bottle leads me to think it is.


A homeless man was critically injured on Sunday when he was involved in a hit-and-run accident while pushing a shopping cart of his belongings across the street, officials said.

Derek Walker, 29, of Maryland, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident but could face additional charges, depending on the fate of the victim.

At about 3:45 a.m., the 65-year-old man was crossing the street on Columbus Drive when he was struck by Walker's purple Hyundai Sonata, according to a police report.

Witnesses at the scene told police the victim hit the driver's windshield and was carried on the front of the car "a few car lengths" before rolling off onto the street, the report states.

The witness told police the driver exited his vehicle in the middle of the intersection near Barrow Street, looked back for about 20 seconds and then left the scene, the report states.

At 4:06 a.m., police were informed that Walker had called police to report that he hit some type of object or person on Columbus Drive and was currently on the New Jersey Turnpike, according to the report.

After authorities told Walker to return to the scene, he arrived at 4:16 a.m. His car had a "spider webbing" crack on the windshield and a dent on the hood and passenger side door, police said.

The vehicle was impounded and Walker was arrested for numerous traffic offenses and open warrants, the report states.

At the scene, police recovered the victim's belonging -- a sleeping bag, blanket, shoes and bottle of wine -- and took measurements from the accident. The report states there was a pool of blood left on the street.

The victim's "life-threatening injures" included bilateral femur fractures, a head injury and collapsed lung, the report states.

Walker appeared in Central Judicial Procession court yesterday and was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injury.

During the hearing, it was stated that the victim not in the cross walk, was wearing dark clothing and it was raining at the time of the accident.

Court officials called the accident "sad" as Walker's family sat in the courtroom.

Walker has no prior arrests, but had two warrants out of Jersey City Municipal Court for motor vehicle violations. The first warrant was $500 and the second was $7,000 with a 10 percent cash option.

Judge Margaret Marley set bail for the accident at $5,000 with a 10 percent cash option, but was concerned the charge could possibly be upgraded to death by auto if the victim dies.

He was issued summonses for careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident with serious injuries, leaving the scene of an accident, and reckless driving.

The man remains in critical condition at Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health, a hospital spokesman said.

Please. You're playing semantics. It doesn't come out of the buyers pocket. The seller cuts the checks at closing! How is that a shell game? You think a buyer will pay $50k less for not using an agent? The fees are determined by whatever the seller agrees to in the listing agreement. They will pay x% whether or not the buyer uses an agent or not.

...


You are obviously in the game yourself and out to con people with the shell game you are playing.

If 6% of sale price goes to the brokers - who pays? THE MONEY COMES OUT OF THE BUYERS POCKET. PERIOD. Argue all you like about who's obligated to pay - it's no different to a sales tax.

Keep peddling your lies, then explain why you can get rebates of up to 60% in NJ? That's $12k back on $20k buyers agent fees. Realtors are going to be in the cross-hairs of the next round of consumer protection regulations. You guys are sharks raping the consumers - and your day of reckoning is due ;)

And who pays the seller? The buyers realtor and sellers realtor split the commission. If you have no broker the seller's broker typically keeps the lot. With your own broker - you have an opportunity to claw some of that commission back.


The seller pays both the buyers and sellers agent.

It is actually pretty standard. You can tell them you only want a 30 day agreement if you would like. This agreement is to protect the agent from showing you a dozen houses and then you go to your pal that is a part time agent for side cash and buy a house the first agent showed you through said pal. I honestly don't know an agent that doesn't have a customer sign it.

I'm a long time Uber/Lyft user and mostly satisfied... up until recently.

In the last several months, I've had an unusual number of drivers call shortly after they accept my ride to ask where I'm going. This is a BIG no no. It quickly became apparent that the only reason they were calling is that they wanted to go to Manhattan. Some were a little more devious and ask innocuous questions before asking "where to?" Others would just come out and say that they'll only go to Manhattan. Some would refuse to cancel and force me to cancel making it look like they did no wrong. Yes, there's been that many over the past few months.

I was tempted to tell them that I was going to midtown to get him to pick me up. But I don't really have time to waste if they refuse or worse, if they go Uber-ballistic on me.

I understand their dilemma, but they signed up for it.

I always report the drivers to Uber. I always get a credit and they always say they're doing their best to throw out these problem drivers. Since the problem seems to continue unabated, I wonder how much they're really doing. Anyone else have this problem?


Are you sure you are a long time user? Every time I use Uber I have to put in my pickup and drop off location on the app. I am not sure why anyone would have to call to ask since its already in the drivers app where their passenger is going.

Dreams is one of my fav DT.


"Big City Dreams" is what I am referring to. It's not that it is a bad piece I just feel like it is misplaced. It should be on a train car not in a neighborhood. I would love to see it replaced with something from Emilio Florentine. That's just my opinion as someone who has to look at it every day.

No, F that! I include the delivery fee in the rest of the tip on Seamless. Im going to need someone who ones a restaurant to explain this to me. Why would that fee go to anyone BUT the driver. Most places raise the price of each item and then they add a fee. It only take one or the other to pay for the Seamless fees. I also would like to point out that without Seamless, most of these shitty take out places would fold. A Delivery fee is not a Service fee.



You can be as outraged as you want at the concept of a delivery surcharge not going directly to the driver but that doesn't change the fact that it's still not a tip.



I just feel that is should not be a "delivery charge" if it is not going to the driver. I am ok with a "Service charge" I suppose but then I expect the prices to be the same on the individual food items.

Direct quotes from the EATER article:
But honestly, it wasn't really working out. It wasn't financially stable, or the type of thing where we could sustain our family life with our new daughter.

The day that everything started to go downhill was the day that we stopped being BYOB

That day was the beginning of the end for our restaurant. We never just really recovered. We lost customers because it was strictly BYOB.


Direct quotes from the GRUBSTREET article:
It was both a financial decision as much as a personal decision.

Ultimately, there was a point, perhaps, where Thirty Acres and Jersey City maybe weren’t seeing eye to eye.

It was great for me as a cook, but as an owner, and as someone who’s growing a family, it sucks.

Alex and I, it’s only us here — no investors, all the money, or lack thereof, is ours


I don't know about you, but that sounds like it was very, very much about the financials and the lack of money they were bringing in, but I guess you see it differently.

There's only been one moped in front of Sushi Tango for the past several months (not mine). The one that got the ticket was a block south of there, by Wayne Street.

And there are three reasons for not parking in the street:
1) They don't have any internal locks for the forks, so you basically have no choice but to chain it to "something".
2) At about 110 pounds, even the SLIGHTEST bump by a car would send it crashing. And they're small enough that an SUV driver wouldn't even see it through their rear window.
3) Parking Authority doesn't issue parking permits for mopeds, so technically we'd be at risk of a ticket if parked in the street for a period of longer than 2 hours.


All great points. Do you know if the ticket is from the police or parking authority? If its from the PA I would try to fight it. I don't think their job is to patrol the sidewalks. In a city over crowded with cars I would think they would be more supportive of alternate transportation. Especially 50cc and under. I am also interested in what exactly the ticket is for. They have to provide someplace for a registered vehicle to park if they will not give out a parking permit.

So I dont know what the law is but my neighbor parks a covered Vespa on the sidewalk and does not get bothered. If I am correct in thinking you are talking about the mopeds on Jersey in front of Sushi Tango (RIP) I can KIND OF see why he would get a ticket. We aren't talking one moped. We are talking about a collection of mopeds that are chained to bicycle racks and signs. Mopeds are motor vehicles, why not just park it on the side of the street like a real motorcycle. I am thinking this is a case of giving and inch and taking a mile.

Hi all,

I live in downtown and love the bars, restaurants, parks and everything else. I am constantly wondering what other great areas of JC are out there that I am missing. Are there different hoods in the heights? Maybe areas that are family oriented, areas that are more "hipster" like with cool bars and good eats? If a young couple was looking to move to the heights what section would you recommend?
