I must have missed all the variety of newer establishments in Newark, from Michael Kors to Barcade to the Beer Garden to Pole Position.

I must have missed how Newark has a miles long riverfront promendade that can be used to walk to neighboring cities.

Should I go on? Should I cite the crime? Because if you try to throw in Greenville it won't be pretty for Newark.

Comparing Jersey City and Newark is like comparing Chicago and Detroit. Both have their issues, but one has a hugely vibrant and prosperous core and the other does not.

The "Newark isn't that bad" types are just concerned with the ascendance of Jersey City as the state's biggest and most important city. Newark has an airport, pastel de nata, and now Whole Foods, and then a wasteland. Doesn't even come close to what we have.


Clearly, Whole Foods owes you a supermarket. How dare they miss all that stuff.

You guys, this means only a few more trend pieces until Jersey City is truly, unquestionably relevant. Nice work.

I am sorry to hear about your delicate sensibilities. Have you ever set food in Key Foods? What there is expired exactly?

also, I wish your property values nothing but the best. When are you planning on selling?


After Sandy, Key Foods had to toss a bunch of meat that was probably no longer legally saleable because of the power outage. Got myself like 12 packages of hot dogs from the dumpster. I should have gone for more. You look at 12 packages of hot dogs in your freezer and it seems like you'll never get through them all. But throw a couple hot dog parties and where does that leave you?

I miss those trash dogs.

Good plan. Lets tear down the one building with character on Newark and replace it with pavers, when Grove Plaza is literally 2 blocks away. Thank God not everyone is allowed to be an urban planner.


I think it's an excess of character on Newark Ave that has ruffled everyone's fedoras.

Todd Abramson did an interview about Maxwell's on WFMU's Aerial View last night. He suggested JC fits the criteria for his next venture but he didn't confirm his plans.

New York Magazine published a great oral history of the venue this week.

Such good news. It's not quite transporting Maxwell's brick by brick to Newark Ave but it's the next best thing.

If the new mayor is serious about rebranding Jersey City as a cultural destination he would do well to make sure this project doesn't get suspended in build-out and inspections for the length of his term.

I know what you mean. I emailed the real estate group about five times in the last year to see if I could call dibs on it from whoever bought the building. Never heard back, which I'm not that surprised by.

Synergy is closed for good as of this morning. The gate is down, the lights are off and there's a note inside the window citing Hurricane Sandy damages as the reason. Club Metro on Washington is honoring all current memberships.

Re: Razza - in old Bar Majestic space

Just can't stay away


Walked by last night out of curiosity and ended up staying for dinner. We got a standard margherita and a farm pizza, which had fennel and onion. The pizza was really good. Brick oven style with good balance of cheeses and thin dough. The crust made the whole pie. It's slightly burnt and crispy, similar to Franny's in Prospect Heights or Porta Pizza in Asbury. The other pizzas on the menu looked good and ranged from about $12.50 to $16 for an 11" pie. They also had a bread order on the menu (?) which I assume was pretty special but I wasn't about to pay for it. There were a few beers and wine as well.
It's not a cheap slice, but definitely one of the best pizzas I've had in town. Also the interior looks nice. It's essentially the same layout as Bar Majestic but with a big oven in the back and the booths have been replaced by small tables. That space more inviting now that they opened it up. Service was excellent and the owner came up to thank us for trying it on opening night. We'll be back.

I regret to inform everyone that effective immediately I will no longer be serving lunch in Jersey City. Unfortunately, a variety of factors including moving to a new location, low demand (as a result) and expiring permits have led me to this decision. I want to thank everyone in Jersey City who has supported me and the Home By The Range brand since 2011!


It seems the city's punitive food truck ordinance continues to have its desired effect. You know it's bad when NYC's permits seem workable as an alternative.

The City Council already has a terrible record when it comes to supporting the arts community and the principles of its "Arts" district. How they vote on this agreement does not change that. No one should take much solace in the idea that council might not yield any further concessions in this already tragic episode. That even some council members have "reluctantly" voiced support for the agreement is disappointing.

I was under the impression that the weekend schedule is due to the WTC construction. I overheard a train operator say the PA won't be able to operate all four lines on weekends, or fully upgrade the apparently dying signal system, until the tower is done. And even then, it's not a priority.

I walked by it the other night and the little girl was making a break for it. One of the owners ran and grabbed her before she got too far down the street, but it seems like it probably happens pretty frequently.

I haven't been tempted to go back after my first visit. The family tableau was kind of novel as performance art at first but the baby screaming and crying was awful. Also it took about half an hour to get four dumplings, in large part because no one bothered to notice the completed order behind the counter for 15 minutes.

You don't have to look real hard in this city to find developers and property managers with no common sense. How else could Newport have happened?
