Think it would create more pedestrian traffic for people to meander from place to place without intrusion of cars- crossing street from say Roman Nose to the bar going into Hudson Camera for example. Or LITM then going to a movie across the street. http://roomfordebate.blogs.nytimes.co ... -back-to-the-future/?_r=0

I'm not sure how closing Newark Ave. to vehicles will draw all those sorts of businesses. The Angelika is on Houston Street, one of the least pedestrian-friendly streets in Manhattan, and they seem to do just fine. Most streets-turned-pedestrian that I've seen became magnets for layabouts, miscreants and skateboarders.

Yes, Friday Night until Saturday Night. It would cause to much turmoil for the entire week.

Well, really my preference would be bossa nova jazz. I'm in my 40s and would prefer something that catered to a 35+ crowd, but even when I was younger I liked lounge music/bossa nova. Feel like that aspect of JC is missing or I haven't found it yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32_tkje6NjU

I was in complete agreement with you, VanVorster, until you said Quote:

They really should eventually close down Newark Avenue from Erie Street to Grove to vehicular traffic and create a pedestrian hub there for nightlife, shopping, eating, services, etc. Just in that mere span, I could see a boutique hotel (it's so close to path); an indie movie theater like the Quad, Landmark Sunshine, Angelika -- not everyone wants to go to New York for such films or drive out to Montclair, Chatham or Bowtie in Hoboken (those large clothing stores that extend from Newark to Columbus, they are very deep cavernous spaces, would be such an ideal spot); and a lounge that serves just dessert, drinks or tapas and offers jazz or chill house music (Hotel Costes, David Sabat, Dmitri, Little Louie Vega, Bill McCamie).

Shadman should take the next step and use silverware and dishes. The place is clean and looks like it was recently redesigned. Will eat there again!


Their "combo" is the best takeout deal in DTJC, IMHo.

That has been up for a while. Maybe BBB is run by the owner of the building and would move out it they could command enough rent?

Newark is getting better, there's at least 4 places under construction at the moment. I know we have the ice cream/yogurt place, the bookstore and another bar coming in. I don't know what they're doing in the newer building next to Sawdee.

I noticed another vacancy - the Party Supply Store on the north side of Newark near Saigon Cafe. The sign said they have moved to Westside Avenue.

Any truth to the rumor I'm starting that a joint venture between John Lobb and Thomas Pink will be opening?

What would be so bad about not having a main street full of vacancies and dollar stores? What is so generic about Washington St? Certainly few if any NJ main streets have as many late night conveniences.

DTJC and Hoboken are lumped together because they are similar...but one glaring inadequacy on our side is that Newark Ave aside from bars and restaurants has little to offer its residents, while Washington Street actually has stores, some 24-7 or late night.

Also, LOL at the idea that ethnic communities have been run out of DTJC...shall we go on listing all the old school establishments around for generations? BTW...Hoboken has a bunch as well, especially Italian ones.

I always find it funny how some people have such generalizations about DTJC (generic) and Hoboken (fratty) but lest someone raise the public crime rate in the rest of the city they are clueless...I'd take generic and fratty and not having to the HBLR/NJT to get around any day over dealing with much less unfortunate reality in Greenville and Bergen Lafayette.

and you must be 12 years old if this is why you think people hate Hoboken. I hate it because its whitewashed, boring, a long ass strip mall which dtjc is headed. Just for the record I have no problem getting ass outside of NJ which I prefer. smdh I really thought this was a grown folks message board.

There are great restaurants in DTJC. Who says there wasn't?

The problem is that whereas in Hoboken you can leave the restaurant and walk down a street to get a drink, not walk past the dark 99 cents store and metal gates.

That is the difference. I love all the whining about Hoboken. It's so fratty and too many bars. Do you forget it has a 24-7 CVS? Do you forget it has restaurants open until 3AM? What's so "fratty" about about people getting home at 9 and 10 being able to patronize establishments?

It's pretty clear that some JC people want to keep crud around to 1) make sure the rent stays low and 2) some kind of false progressivism. That is the fear of where Hoboken comes from. That and some older people who see someone under 30 and crap their pants- that is, professional people under 30, not spillover from Greenville and elsewhere at some of these places.


Hoboken sucks! the spillover from Greenville keeps downtown thriving because most dtjc residents do not support anything in JC. They spend their money in NYC. Most of the stores like Made with Love, Its Greek to me are closed because none of you supported it.


The spillover from Bergen Lafayette and Greenville keeps the downtown JCPD occupied - user has a point.

that waterfront is incredible. (I lived in Hoboken when that shore was just a long stretch of abandoned chunks of concrete, and the plan was on to run the light rail alongside it.)

JC missed a great opportunity to build a world-class destination along our riverside.

Actually there are plenty of Italian, Polish, and Spanish shops all over downtown JC. In fact, I'd argue that there is greater diversity in old school ethnic eateries in DTJC than in any other area of JC. Not sure where you are going with that one, user111.

The point of the Hoboken comparison is to point out what we DON'T want DTJC to become. If any of you guys on here like Hoboken so much, why the hell do you live in DTJC? By all means, move back. We won't be mad at you. In fact, you might find volunteers to help you move :)

But don't try to change the more affordable DTJC to fit your ideal lifestyle. Get a promotion and head back to No-Jokin.

HA!!! I use to like dtjc back in the mid 90's it is now boring and not very interesting. I miss all the Italian, Polish, Spanish shops. I wish you all get what you want but for the most part dtjc has lost most of it appeal. Its trying to too hard to be something its not.
