Re: Heads Up - Bike Thefts on the Increase at JSQ PATH

I've never heard of the brand "Roadmaster" and looked it up, probably one of the cheapest "new" bikes you can buy. My guess would be that the thief was desperate and would have stolen ANYTHING – not knowing that particular bike isn't even worth the risk.

Interesting. My guess would be that this info would match up nicely to statistics on general vehicle-to-vehicle crashes. More cars = more crashes.

I'm glad that they are referring to collisions as "crashes" instead of "accidents" though.

Well, if you can explain how to fix Terhune Avenue for safe bike riding up or down that lane, I'll defer to your wisdom.
Compromise to bring safety is not backward thinking.


A bike lane is not a traffic-calming device, that is not the reason they are being placed throughout the city. They are not stop signs, they are not traffic lights and they are not speed humps.

Bike lanes are visual cues to motorists that other human beings have the legal right to use the roadways; that roads are meant to be SHARED.

When roads are not shared, when aggressive driving becomes a problem, THEN it becomes a matter of police enforcement and/or civil engineering.

Terhune Avenue is not an exception to any other one-way street in JC with a bike lane.

On Wednesday night my wife and I visited my sister-in-law up on Terhune Avenue. Terhune is a park on both sides venue. There is a bike lane on the left side of the road, and I just shake my head in disbelief that it's there. If a careless passenger exits their car without looking and a bike rider collides with the door and the passenger while a car is coming up the road tragedy is inevitable.
As a bike rider myself, that opened car door is something I fear more than traffic.
I feel that a compromise may be reached within Jersey City wherein bikes should be off limits on some dangerous streets in order to focus more on the wider avenues where citizens will realize that bikes are to be expected and there is room to avoid tragedy.
The lack of thought that the city administration displayed in putting bike lanes on streets that are dangerous for bike riders was an unnecessary and probably expensive waste of public funds and of no use to the bicycle rider.


This is exactly the backwards thinking that we are fighting against. We don't cater to dangerous streets – we fix the issues that make them dangerous.

BTW, on one-way streets, bike lanes SHOULD be placed on the left side of the road (along the passenger side of vehicles). The chance of a door collision is reduced significantly, since every car must have a driver but not always a passenger.

Nearly every of my packages that are FedEx —> USPS or UPS —> USPS have issues. It's like the postoffice gets their jollies from not delivering other carriers packages. However, when it JUST a USPS package, totally fine.

I also have the issues with them never leaving slips/notifications and failing to make redelivery attempts.

Time to pump the brakes a bit, you sound like a stuck-up broad.

You've done your part and complained to the manager that you find the store to be unwelcoming to guests, and your next step should be to contact their corporate office. Turn to social media if you must, FB and Twitter have proven very effective and getting issues resolved.

Boycott the store in the meantime by checking out some of the other local coffeeshops that others here have suggested. Many of them offer a great atmosphere for relaxing and enjoying a cup of "good" coffee.

Guests ?? Is there a private party being conducted there where it's invitation only ? I think you mean (paying) customers


Sorry that the term "guest" tripped you up.

noun

1. a person who spends some time at another person's home in some social activity, as a visit, dinner, or party.

2. a person who receives the hospitality of a club, a city, or the like.

3. a person who patronizes a hotel, restaurant, etc., for the lodging, food, or entertainment it provides.

4. an often well-known person invited to participate or perform in a regular program, series, etc., as a substitute for a regular member or as a special attraction.

5. Zoology. an inquiline.

Re: Can you recommend a bike rack?
#14
Home away from home
Home away from home


I'll 2nd the hitch mount rack, they are the easiest to use, and remove when you aren't planning to use them.

A few things to consider:
• You do need to install a hitch (CURT brand comes to mind)
• gaining access to your hatch with the rack installed can sometimes be funky, depending on if the rack has a tilt/swing arm. Not really an issue if you can fold down the rear seat.

Anything that is going to mount to your car's body panels could damage the paint over time, if that is a concern.

Re: Parking Issues Around Hamilton Park

Home away from home


As unsightly as it would be for residential streets, I bet putting hash lines to designate spots would help. I see so much wasted space between cars, enough room to park 4-5 motorcycles but barely enough for a subcompact. So often I see people park smack in the middle of a 30ft gap, not allowing enough room for anyone to park in front of, or behind them.

Re: Parking Issues Around Hamilton Park

I don't have a car in JC, but I definitely have noticed that the parking situation in the HP area has gotten worse over the last year or two. My guess is that some of this us attributed to the new condos going up. I keep my car at a relatives house outside of JC, and I'll only use it when I need to travel for long hours/distances or days at a time. I don't know if I'll ever bother having a car here, as I've managed to get by just fine with biking/Uber/Zipcar.

Just out of curiosity, but what are you doing during school hours that require the use of a parking spot? School is from, what 8–3pm when most non-students are at work, or are working from home. Are there that many stay-at-home moms who need to run errands during the day? Not being critical, but as a non-driver, I'm trying to figure out the competition that the students are bringing to the table for parking during these hours.

And neither does ignoring it, especially if that fire was set for no good reason.

While I appreciate the freedom we all have to say what we feel, I would like to think that lashing out against bigotry is still by far the normal response.


Hey man, if you have a successful track record of convincing people to break from their beliefs OVER THE INTERNET, Id love to hear how that works. Otherwise maybe Google what an "internet troll" is to see what kind of battle you'll be fighting.

I'll take a dose of my own medicine now.

Who's the guy that always walks up/down the Plaza asking for you to buy him food? He REFUSES to take money, insisting that he's not a "beggar." He'll start by chewing your ear off with some casual conversation that always leads to food. I offered him a dollar and he wouldn't have any of it, stating "You can't buy nothing for a dollar!" When I told him that if he collected 4-5 dollars, he could buy something, he got so pissed off and walked away – it was awesome. I'm convinced he's just looking for a dinner date to front the bill.

Take the time to educate yourself, do your research and go to a dealer and inspect the car in person. The internet sites are great for finding a car, but seriously, buying a car over the internet is just lazy and dumb. Would you buy a house over the internet? Or a child? Do yourself a favor, put up with the small amount of frustration of visiting different dealerships and talking to real people, you'll be more likely to get better information first hand and might be able to get better pricing/discounts/incentives.

Never had an issue with GSB. They've always been accommodating, even going out of there way to help. The staff can be a bit disorganized at times, but the owner (Rodney) has always stepped up to the plate to make things right. Hopefully you'll give them another shot in the future.

My landlord paid a day laborer (possibly a neighborhood kid) to paint our fire escape. I swear, you could have gotten a gorilla to do a better job. Paint dripping down the entire side of the building, all over potted plants, all over window screens, all over the ground, super sloppy. Pay someone who takes pride in their work, they'll be more careful with your property and most likely with their own safety.

Re: The Disaster that is Jersey City Recreation

I honestly had no idea the city even had a recreation department, but then again I don't have kids, so that might be part of it. I just grab my bike, running shoes, ball, frisbee, camera, fishing pole or a bag lunch and had outdoors to the nearest open space and do my thing. As long as the city has available open space, isn't that all you need? Sorry, not trying to be critical, maybe this has more to do with organized youth sports or access to specific facilities? I always find myself with plenty of things to do around town, it's just my responsibility to provide my own tools.

Major annoyance. If a sidewalk must be blocked, then a walkway should be made where the cars park. There's no signage, no walkway and pedestrians have to squeeze between cars and walk in the street to get around that monstrosity. Given how long that church has been half done, I'd say that blue box is going to be there for years. It's horrible having to walk out onto Jersey Ave like that. People get hit on that street all the time.

Please contact Candice about it. http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/citycouncil.aspx?id=1224


They've put signs up now, not sure when this happened.

Ya man, this whole operation makes no sense. First the area was blocked off with tape for 2-3 weeks, then they put this thing up. What are they even doing? I'll definitely be writing Candice, it's super dangerous how people are walking in the street, and I gotta believe it's a matter of time until cars start to get damaged from parking there (people squeezing through). The things you can get away with in the name of God…
