Are you serious!! Mind me asking who you spoke to at the parking authority?? I spent a ridiculous amount of time calling/going back and forth between the court and the PA to no avail... and my ticket was even thrown out! Holy crap I'm so annoyed!!! but happy you got your money back.

haha, umm, did you really just create an account to respond to this?

hell froze over, JCPA is refunding me but i still have to go fight the ticket portion later this month. councilwoman candice osbourne helped in directing my complaint to the right person at the parking authority but i had to provide pictures of all the construction permits, etc. it was a very reluctant refund because in their mind the rules are black and white, but the woman associated with JCPA said she had superstorm sandy damage at her home as well, so i think she had a rare soft spot for this one-off. generally JCPA will just tell you "it's a tow zone, so the boot is actually a favor for not towing your car." if i hadn't been able to provide proof, the first offence wouldn't have mattered to them. "it could have been a tow!" barf.

that is exactly the reason for the boot.. just hoping it's possible if they can throw me a bone with this because i'm not some parking scofflaw.

curious if anyone has successfully had a boot refunded for any other reason?

i moved my car from my paid space at my apartment to the street today in order for construction to unload supplies into the apartment beneath mine (ongoing reconstruction from superstorm sandy) and i got ye ol' boot. obviously i'm psyched because i wasn't trying to park for free on the street and was trying to be accomodating to the construction dudes. i can attend the court date and provide proof that this is what happened, but i feel like JCPA won't care.

snarky responses stay home.

I don't get it... no orange flags to alert drivers of the new signs?

I just noticed that Marin @ Grand has a new "No Turn On Red" sign but the placement is awful.

this is great to know! they got a really good rating on Charity Navigator: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index ... &orgid=11547#.UnvZHpQiGTs

there's another veteran's charity that does pickup - VVA (vietnam vets of America, I think?) but they've got a really lousy score, with the bulk of their cash going toward administrative overhead.



yeah, i think i posted the link to the "wrong" vets.

this looks like the AMVETS i was talking about; http://amvetspickup.org/

although i can't seem to find a NJ location. DERP.

i know nothing about operating a restaurant, but i'm a little surprised they say sandy was the cause for them closing. i understand that inventory is quite expensive, but were they really running their margins that close to make them close? did any other businesses downtown close permanently after the storm? even edward's which was entirely submerged finally got back on their feet during the summer. i'm interested in a more informed perspective.

I grew up in Maryland and I LOATHE not being able to pump my own gas! In MD we're taught how to pump gas with a learners permit at age 15. To hear that adults have trouble with this is sad. It's just faster and easier to do myself.

saturday at 5pm i opted to take the turnpike from central NJ back into JC instead of risking it with 1&9 truck - unfortunate that it's more expensive, but the turnpike was clear, no issues getting home.

cicada was open practically the next week after the storm while edward's just opened a week or two ago and tommy two scoops opened this past weekend. i think all cicada did was throw out the awesome 1980's creepy couch and the random macintosh computer and get some new tables and chairs.

Re: Maxwell's coming to JC?
#48

Just can't stay away


Maxwell's has a huge draw from all over New Jersey. A lot of bands will play Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Hoboken. It has definitely been a destination for people to see bands without heading into the city. The only other place in NJ on a similar level is Starland Ballroom which is far for North Jersey residents and usually hosts much bigger/more commercial bands.

A little confused with all the talk about parking, including from Abrahamson himself. Wouldn't the core target audience for such shows be coming from JC, Manhattan, Brooklyn? Who would be driving? I mean obviously some would, but is it significant enough to require off-street parking?

maybe it's just me, but being that both incarnations of the restaurant look like a cafeteria with staff, neither nha trang nor TH strike me as the kind of place i'd go to get my butt kissed with good service. it's always kind of light hearted and laughable, just like the crazy blonde waitress that used to be at la rustique. at nha trang my friends and i generally just ask for the dishes we want as appetizers without mentioning our "main course" until the first plates come out. no big whoop. had the same experience at TH, but we go for the solid food and that's it.

Re: Club H vs. Brick Haus (gym)
#53
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


brick haus is okay. i switched from a cheaper gym to brick haus because the cheaper gym was way too crowded, an issue that i have never had at brick haus and i always go at peak hours. i've always felt it was clean and the bootcamp and yoga instructors are awesome. i haven't felt that way about some of the other instructors, enough that i eventually quit going to those sessions (bummer). i would consider renewing there because i keep hearing that club H is worse, but i don't LOVE the place. i was pretty bent after i didn't renew IMMEDIATELY when my membership expired and the owner tried to get me to pay a hidden and somewhat large 'new member fee' with my renewal, even though all my information was still on file and he recognized me and asked where i'd been. lame. it gets the job done though.

Re: The PATH is racist?

Just can't stay away


my guess is that PATH isn't racist, the conductor was. and that possibly the JSQ-bound trains are more crowded because people are using the JSQ line to transfer to the NWK line from midtown.


re: trash cans: in europe i've seen metal hoops in subway stations that hold clear plastic trash bags. large items cannot fit into the hoops, and you can obviously see the contents through the clear bags. i'm sure that PATH could figure out a trash solution, but with the price of rides consistently increasing i'd rather it not be at my expense.

Downstairs renters not leaving dilapidated apartment post-Sandy
#59
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I live above an immigrant family of 6 whose apartment had 5 feet of water during the storm. After the storm, they dried out their things and went right back in. The landlord wants to gut the place, but the family refuses to move out, insisting it is fine but only because they have nowhere else to go. Meanwhile, my apartment upstairs smells like a dead body and the roaches and mice from their place are now overwhelming. The allergic reactions I've been having from their dirt and mildew getting into the air have made it inhabitable. My roommates and I have talked to the family, but the father is a stubborn man and now appearing somewhat delusional. The landlord is being extremely soft on them since they will be homeless and hasn't made a strong effort to get them out. We have withheld rent but I would much rather be able to live in my own apartment. Surely they can't just refuse forever, this has to be some sort of health violation? Any advice is appreciated.

that intersection of grand and marin turned into a dangerous rapid river during the storm. edwards had to have had at least 5 feet of water, and i'm pretty sure cicada had even more. i saw some people jumping ship from cicada around 7pm that night while the water was at their waists, and it only went up from there.
