PJ Ryans in JSQ is busy at happy hour and weeknights, but pretty dead for lunch and weekend brunch.

I heard their next location to open will be in Newark by the Prudential Center.

I heard that the downtown PJ Ryan's is closing but the JSQ one is staying and potentially a new one opening somewhere else on the west side of city.


That would be a shame, and a surprise. I haven't been there in a while, but the last time I stopped in, they were busy. I have always liked that place. Good bar food, and (usually) really good draft beer selection. I haven't visited the JSQ location (way too far for me) but I have heard it is actually really good.

Updated 7:51 PM; Posted 6:46 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — The Kushner family's development firm has filed a nine-count lawsuit against Jersey City, saying the city is delaying its $900 million One Journal Square project because of "political animus towards President Trump."

i agree 150% that a museum in journal square is not the brightest idea. i think along the waterfront or near liberty science center makes more sense as it might be able to leverage off the foot traffic downtown/tourist, the mall or liberty science centerQuote:

Jersey City council OKs $10M deal for new museum

Updated 4:51 PM; Posted 4:17 PM (1/23/2018)

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- A plan to turn a county building into a city-run museum and community center advanced last night when the City Council approved a deal to borrow $10 million to buy the building and hire a consultant to help create it.

The council voted 7-2 to approve the measure, a subsidy agreement between the city and the autonomous Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, which is overseeing the museum project. The deal puts the city on the hook for the $10 million the JCRA is bonding for the museum.

Court victory paves way for new Journal Square high-rise
Updated 2:02 PM; Posted 2:02 PM

JERSEY CITY -- The owners of a property just outside Journal Square are demanding the city comply with a judicial order to vacate a portion of West Street, an action that would allow for construction of a high-rise on the site.

Eh, i get it. Have you ever actually tried to eat in JSQ? Besides a few good Indian joints on Newark, there really isnt much thats good OR interesting. It has nothing to do with ethnic. Its honestly just nothing you would want to venture out for with a date, or friends.

But to answer the previous question, yes I do think some good options will start to trickle in soon




Golden Crust - Jamaican food (ain't so Irie but jerk not bad)

Morgan Seafood - Egyptian Food (sit down possible but rustic for
Ohio BKLYN transplants who know fuk all)

Tonelle Ave - 2x Comidas Equador

3 Guys from Italy - Old School Slices

Noodle fan - cheaper Thai food

Yes tons of Masla Dosa and Sweet Lasi

Giant clock planned for new Journal Square tower

Updated 5:01 PM; Posted Today 5:01 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

Jersey City may get its own version of Big Ben.

The developers behind the three-tower Journal Squared project won approval from the city Planning Board recently to add a giant digital clock to the next tower slated for construction.

Unlike London's iconic Big Ben, which sits atop a 315-foot tower, the Journal Squared timepiece will be much closer to the ground. A rendering of the building shows the clock near the ground floor of the 759-foot building. It will face south, toward the plaza that leads into the Journal Square PATH hub.

Crews broke ground on the second Journal Squared tower earlier this year. The 72-story high-rise is expected to be completed in 2020. It is the tallest of the nine high-rises planned for Journal Square.

Kushners resurrect plans for Journal Square towers

Updated on September 25, 2017 at 5:28 PM Posted on September 25, 2017 at 2:28 PM

By Terrence T. McDonald
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- One Journal Square, the controversial residential and office towers proposed by the family of presidential son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, is being resurrected, with revised plans for the beleaguered project scheduled to go before the Planning Board tomorrow.

The future of the two-tower project appeared in jeopardy earlier this year when Mayor Steve Fulop announced the developers -- Kushner Cos. and KABR Group -- would not receive a package of city subsidies they requested. A major investor and planned tenant also pulled out of the deal, and a critical state tax break fell through.

My mother did not drive either but the doctor was walking distance, that is not the case anymore. I have kept the same doctor and dentist for a long time, yet both moved. The doctor moved when St. Francis was changed into housing and the dentist moved when his business was burgalzied. Both are not walking distance.

There will be a time in most people's lives when owning a car is the practical answer. It basically starts when you have kids. It is difficult to put an infant on the back of a bike to take your newborn to the doctor's office.

I wonder if underground parking is prohibitively expensive, or if developers just want the cheapest option.

Again, parking in a crowded city is a luxury, not a right. If you want the convenience of a parking spot in a city, you'll need to pay for it.

This is nothing more than paying for a service.

1. Fine, build garages to absorb the extra parking from the new developments, but PLEASE hide the eyesore garages underground or in the middle of the block on large scale projects so we dont have to see the streetscape ruined with these structures.



Can't be realistically done as undergound garages are prohibitively expensive $$$. There are also water table and flooding issues. Hiding the garages middle block can only be done on very big sites.

Quote:

2. On the other hand, more parking offered will encourage more drivers. Even if parking is not an issue bc its self contained in the building, you are going to have a big increase in traffic on these narrow streets through the city. Encouraging people with a NYC mentality to move in and ditch their cars will make for a better standard of living for existing drivers and peds who dont want to navigate a city over capacity with cars.


The sooner they add a dedicated streetcar line in a private right-of-way to bypass all the stalled cars on JFK, the better. Traffic is getting worse than Manhattan on JC streets,

Quote:

I dont think proposing a building this small near mass transit without parking is such a bad thing. But apparently we're years away from that being a popular idea.


It's exactly the type of building we should be building in Journal Square. If I were term, I'd open up a contact with one of the nearby lots and say parking will be provided to residents at the going rate of the lot. There you have it, parking for any new resident that wants it. With zone parking, there would be no issuance of a permit for the new residents since parking would be available.
