Agreed - it's a steal.

Duplex, yard, w&d, relatively modern, owner occupied (which some see as a neg... but I have always seen as a positive). Think about the fact that two people could easily live in this space and split the rent at 1500 pp... that's cheap.

Re: $93 million tax break for Journal Square

Have you ever worked a real estate deal? Because you are clearly an expert on how they are structured and should be structured for all situations ever.

Yvonne "real estate and abatement expert" - can you please outline the economics of the deal - what are the 10/20/30 year job and tax revenue projections at both the municipal and state level? What economic benchmarks for KRE developments exist and in what other markets have they been successful? What are the derived economic benefits from current developments and the increased municipal revenue?

Yvonne - your posts are like trying piece together the mumblings of a schizophrenic cocaine addict.

The entity WeWork - it's kinda cool they would put something in JS. Their model is to provide a trendy and affordable shared office space for many little companies and entrepreneurs. The office spaces have a history of incubating new ideas and business (a driver for future tax revenue). I'd argue this tax break makes sense.

I cant get over the ridiculousness of thinking that because the sign on a building changed over night the internal workings of a currently function store would as well.

Call me shocked that ACME hasnt had the opportunity to overhaul/update/influence the way these store operate yet... while it might be nice to change management, update supply chain, rearrange floor plan like a sign on the exterior of a building... it rarely happens as fast

Give the transition another 3-4 months or just keep complaining that the new sign out front hast provided the produce you want.

I've had the same problem where they call me right after accepting my ride... I usually decline the call and immediately text them that if they dont want to take my ride to cancel it... because I will not.

I usually get the cancellation right after that.

This has happened 3 of my last 5 rides.

Do NOT do this. Make THEM cancel the pick up! I have had this conversation with many friends in the past. If you cancel, you show up in the Uber passenger stats (and ratings) as someone who is prone to do that.

Drivers are ASKING (not forcing) you to cancel because that way they don't get penalized. Many drivers will try to game the system by not cancelling a request they accepted (I believe the penalty is $10, but maybe it is less) so they will accept every request they see, then call the passenger to see where they are going, and if they don't want the fare, they ask/tell the person to cancel the request and submit it again. You should always reply with "I am sorry, but you have accepted the pick up, so go ahead and cancel it if you don't want to pick me up" and then hang up. Those little shits doing that are essentially causing a backlog in the system by forcing additional requests, and possibly taking business away from other drivers.

1. Free bread that is quite delicious
2. A truly eclectic menu
3. Large portions
4. Different types of cheesecake

Sad and predictable... basically a full booze operation.

I know there are varying opinions, but are there any other really good 'sports' bars downtown? While I am not a fan, they may have filled a gap - anyone see how may TVs it will be?

BTW - they need to change the name to something like CP's, Studabakers, or you name a cheesy sports bar.

I think Abbondanza is the closest to the crown for "coming soon" They were 2+ years in the making. As far as I know, Monty's has been 2 years in the making, not 3. Regardless, what is different here is that we can't lay the blame for this long delayed opening on the Buildings Department.

As much as I hate to say this, I think there should be a rule or law that limits how long a business can stay "under construction". It may sound ridiculous, but you could argue that a business that through negligence (or, lack of a coherent plan) is unable to open its door to the public, and remains a construction zone, is a blight on the area and the public. Newark Avenue has been coming along very nicely for the past two years, with new restaurants and other businesses opening it up. Monty's is taking up a prime spot and slowing down the revitalization of the area with a boarded up storefront that is an eyesore.


Does anyone know why the opening is delayed, though? How do we know who to blame?


Yvonne said it was Fulop administration... but I think she might be biased


Yvonne actually did a very thorough investigative low budget YouTube video explaining how Mayor Fulop is responsible for global warming, poverty, me stubbing my toe yesterday, any past and future power outage, the price of milk, the turmoil in Syria, and every single dog off-leash where they shouldn't be.


Bahaha - thank you for the LOL

You know... if the city doesnt ultimately acquire the Embankment, the grants are meaningless...

Let's play this out a little: forget the grants to ultimately take the space for the city or keep the grants for green space we never get... or keep up the legal battle finding alternative options that include keeping the grants; I like option 1.

Also - grants are tax payer money (in some form or another) - so yeah, there's that.

When the city council renamed the embankment as a rail line under the urging of Mayor Fulop, this action has cost taxpayers money. Taxpayers must replace grants that the previous city council secured for green space. The ordinance is 15.125. We have spent $2 million in legal fees and now this.

That outlook is on the sunset. If the past 10 years (and really the past 5) are any indication of where downtown JC is going on value for money... there will be very little left.

Want value for money and cheap restaurants... head on up to the heights, JSQ, or Greenville. JC still offers plenty of what you are looking for... downtown is different and changing - so what?

Dale's food is good and I'm happy it came to JC. CP - I always felt they under funded the concept...

This is very typical here in JC, these over priced places pop up to cater to all these people living in "luxury" apts but most of those people don't even shop in JC, they are shopping and eating in restaurants across the river.

I wish them well.


Perhaps, User, but I also got the sense that a lot of their customers were from the higher the hair the closer to Jesus suburbs (HHCJS). As a Covey, living on Erie Street, I'd be quite happy to see both Carrino and Talde replaced by less hip and or yup establishments. How about a great Cantonese place or a real Italian market like the one that used to be at Monmouth and Newark? Or a real butcher - Maloney's East.

Re: Hudson River waterfront needs vast improvement

I agree with you.

I see the JC waterfront as just being different. Lets not forget that JC offers significantly more park space than any other municipality in the area and LSP is easily accessed...

As someone who has been using the waterfront for years of running, walking, and relaxing I appreciate what we have.

Someone brought up Newport earlier in the thread - I think its important to note, that it was designed to keep JC out and essentially be stand alone (which I believe was accomplished). When Newport went up... JC wasnt the thriving picture of gentrification that it is now. Newport developers didnt want the rest of JC there.

Such conjecture...

Who the hell knows how their personal assets are structured... you realize there are plenty of ways to protect personal wealth? A trust for example - done correctly - are completely independent of personal liability. There is a good chance that they have almost nothing of any real value in their name...
