Re: N.J. woman claims cabbie tried to abduct her, Taxi and Limousine Commission will investigate
#91

Obviously, I don't really know what was happening here, but a lot of it sounds fishy. Looks like the driver was heading to 78 to take that into JC...and if you're a NYC cab driver who's only been to the airport, that probably makes sense to you. This woman uses a LOT of buzzwords that make it sound like she might be seeing something that wasn't really happening.

I do love that her "usual" drink intake is 8-9 cocktails, and she says that like "oh yeah, isn't that true for everybody?"

Just as curiously, they feature a picture of 150-year-old brownstones instead of their own dreary building.

It's just their name for their outlet stores. They have them up in Woodbury NY and other outlet-center places. Prices are just okay, and they carry a lot of overstock/previous-season stuff. Not bad deals, but probably not a place for a serious sneaker-head.

A messenger? Why do they need a messenger? I guess they haven't gotten up to speed on telephones/email/texting/skyping/faxing/snapchatting. Because, ya know, sending a messenger makes so much more sense.

The market wasn't making any sense to me anyway - way too big a space for way too little stuff. It's a really nice spot, so they (or somebody) will turn it around.

Re: Hudson River waterfront needs vast improvement

Here's a contrarian view: The walkway is kind of nice, as-is. There is no shortage of places to eat and get drunk in Jersey City, and the walkway is peaceful, relaxing and mercifully free of someone trying to sell me stuff. Maybe I'd feel differently if I had little kids, but I enjoy a stroll or bike ride there lots of evenings.

Go ahead, haters, hate on me.

+1 on the bus. It's not fancy, and I use employer-paid Uber when traveling on company business (because I AM fancy), but the PATH/62 is a pretty efficient way to get to the airport on the cheap.

Re: Jersey City Puerto Rican Day Festival and Parade set for this weekend

Not sure where I've proven myself to be a racist, and I sleep with a brown person every night, so apparently I don't mind being around them. And Chicpea (a lovely person, btw) is right - the food, music and crafts at the PR festival are great. Most people (okay, not ALL posters) are not complaining about that. This festival IS different than the others, and attracts a larger number of criminals and thugs. If you're choosing to pretend that's not true, that's fine.

The Puerto Rican festival DOES have a disproportionate amount of thuggish behavior, trash and air of impending violence. It has nothing to do with a culture's "ways" - for some reason, it attracts a large number of beasts who think they can get away with anything because they have a flag on their t-shirt.

YOU, madam, are the racist for implying that we should allow sub-human behavior because Puerto Ricans are just like a bunch of teenagers set loose in dad's liquor cabinet. If I were Puerto Rican, it's you I'd be offended by.

That's the thing with these "progressives." They treat certain minorities as their pets. As if they are just animals who don't know any better. So they will scold you if you try to call them out on their misbehavior.

Hoboken's treatment of the St. Paddy's Day Parade has been right on the mark and is inspirational for us civilized people. In addition to providing tight police control, they dramatically increased the fines for offenses such as disorderly conduct to $2,000, for one day only. This has had the effect of lowering misbehavior, as well as providing a financial source of recoupment for the security and cleanup costs associated with the event.

Try doing that to the PR parade and the "progressives" would probably have a fit for trying to hold their pets accountable to the same standards we hold the St. Paddy's Day attendees to. But I believe these "progressives" are on the wrong side of history. More and more people are seeing through their BS tactics of throwing the race card at every turn to give a free pass to unacceptable behavior. More people want to do the right thing, and the fair thing, and demand civilized behavior from all.

So you may not see the crackdown immediately, but I think it is coming.


You said it better than I. Nobody - and I mean NOBODY - defends the right of post-graduate frat boys to puke on the stoops of Hoboken, yet folks come out of the woodwork to bleat over protecting the poor, misunderstood simpletons who are minorities and just don't know any better.

And yeah, we get it, HippieGirl. You're down with the REAL people. Relax.

All people are asking for is accountability on the part of all festival organizers and the city to ensure festivals safe and happy events for all the attendees. They are quick to label people but they never acknowledge that there are issues with celebrations that go on for 2 days and end on Sunday night 8:00pm with police cars, sirens blaring in response to 911 calls. Exchange Place is the perfect location for these festivals, my favorite is the South American festival? we just want the guests to be considerate of the neighbors and the waterfront environment.


Well said.


Exactly, well said. Plenty of people (like me) enjoy a lot of the festivals, and the life they bring to the dead zone that is Exchange Place on weekends. And the poster who referred to the "soft racism" implied by the lowered expectations of the Puerto Rican festival is right - it's not racist to expect any group to have fun, make a little noise, clean up after themselves, and go home. That's just being civilized.

I think that when the entire concourse is open, that funneling of people will be spread out over a larger area. No one could possible have designed the current situation as a permanent thing. Then again, these are the people who installed pure white staircases that are already filthy after 2 months of use.

OR...do what we do: wait until 2 pm or so to leave for the beach. You'll sail down the parkway, and you still have 4-5 hours of a beautiful day on the beach (at less skin-cancerish hours).

Maybe not the best way to go with kids, though.

I was thinking the same thing. If I owned this place I'd value the coal chute as a great artifact.

That memorial (and the way it's maintained) is shameful and depressing, but it always makes me think of the folly of establishing "permanent" monuments. Over time, people forget their significance and they become pigeon roosts. This being Jersey City, or course, that happened within a couple of years.

Re: Jersey City bicyclist in serious condition in hit and run: cops
Home away from home
Home away from home


Don't get me wrong, I love bikes and ride mine all over the city. But I ride in the STREET, use common sense/courtesy, and cars don't scare me. I think part of the problem is that people move to a city and imagine this car-free lifestyle and then are afraid to ride in traffic. Browse through the craigslist used bike ads, they're full of listings saying I THOUGHT I'D LIKE RIDING IN THE CITY BUT I HATE IT.

Um no. I was enrolled in a useful major at a good college (or maybe I was in grad school already - can't recall her exact age), had a job, managed my own budget, and didn't expect to live in the best part of town when I couldn't afford it.


You have no idea what her expectations are, or whether she manages her own budget. You're just making stuff up because you've formed an opinion of her. I agree that she isn't making any sense on this subject (I won't even call it an "issue", cuz it's not), but stick to the facts.

Re: Bike stolen outside Newport Path Station

I have two strong feelings about this:
- I'd never leave my bike for more than 5 minutes without my elaborate system of locks/chains/cables that would foil almost any crook.
- If the city and PA cared about this at all, they'd provide safe, secure bike parking where I wouldn't need my elaborate system.

Outside Union Station in DC there's a Eurpean-style bike parking garage where your can safely store your bike for a modest fee. I get that they have higher volumes of riders than we do, but there has to be a way to do that on a smaller scale.

Yes, ain't it awful? People who don't smoke or drink and practice evangelism and traditional values are moving into Jersey City. Truly frightening, and a bad sign for the future of overpriced bars in our town.

I'm not a Mormon, not even close, but I know a bunch of them. It's hard to imagine a less harmful group of people. Yeah, there are abuses in their leadership, but name me a church that doesn't have that.
