Re: Storefronts on Newark Ave
#1

I like all the shops in Newark Ave. They have the old/new vibe.

I would rather have Trader Joe's then crappy Whole Foods.
FYI.. You know the food you eat at WF, which are actually made from recently "Expired" veggies / fruits /cans.. According to Former CEO of TJ. Cough.. there's a WF sucker born everyday. Also, FYI you know that organic meat you're eating, does it bother you that.. to keep it "organic" the cow/chicken/pig/duck can have abscesses all over their body etc. but they keep it alive till they cut it all up for the sake of being "Organic"

Back to the main topic, I like the change in DTJC but hope it expands out to Journal Square etc or further down Grand across the 78. There is always room to grow, change. I love that there is an Asian Supermarket in Hudson Mall now, That area will def. Change!

For Fruits and Veggies go to Fruit & Farm 2823 JFK Blvd. Their should be a pretty huge Asian Market coming to Hudson Mall.

Newark Ave. and Little India has everything "Apanza Bazar" , C-Town is fine. There is couple mom & Pop Fruit/Veggie Stores on Montgomery & Bergan Ave. etc. JSQ is still developing, not as fast as Downtown but developing non the less.

LOL.. what part of Manila. ave is dangerous and unsafe? I would rather worry about the crazy out of town drivers buzzing through to get to Holland Tunnel.

Living by 1st street, I would walk right through the development to get to Shoprite, every other day, even late at night (Shoprite closes at 12am) best short cut ever!! Always safe like most part of Downtown J.C. just be smart and aware at all times. Like any other city.

Re: Need feedback today PATH train

1. Have one of those electrical train schedule outside or front of station informing the user time: when the next train arrives, instead of actually going in to find out you have to wait 50 minutes for the next train, In that time i can walk to Newport or Exchange Place.

2. Wifi access in the stations.

3. direct trains instead of that stupid 1 stop to Hoboken. have three lines WTC:Nwk, JSQ:33rd, Hoboken:33rd.

ignorant much....

Hmmm.. Lets see new economy needs tons of skilled, professional foreign born workers. Have some of the users who post such bigoted comments walked down Newport (Chase) or Exchange Place? Secondly, those professionals are making this city better. Also, new economy means tons of new skilled workers coming to JC. I from California, and you know what! We new residents contribute to the economy of JC. thank you very much.

most ideal place would not be in Downtown but Newport area.. since tons of Korean internationals live there attending NYU etc. Also, a real authentic Dim Sum place would rock in Newport as well.

Honestly... as someone from California, North, Southhaving tasted awesome Mexican fares from San Diego, TJ, LA, OC, Fresno, Sac to San Francisco and San Jose.. TQ downtown is avg at best. .. Sorry to say this but.. If you thing TQ Downtown is actually ranked in taco taste, you folks have not tasted rich, succulent, flavorful, tacos topped with mounds of juicy, spicy meats.

Re: JC Post Office - Be Very Afraid

I don't trust JC Post Office. My family member sent a package from the West Coast never arrived. Later found out they put some cash in an envelope hidden away in the package.. But!! somehow it never arrives.. No one can see it unless you have one of those x-ray things. which usually is in Post offices.

I don't trust the Post Office. Never had that kind of problem with UPS or Fedx.

Honestly, forget soup dumplings.. What you all should be asking for is full on real dim sum place. Dim sum carts with har gao, su mai, egg tarts.. perfect for real foodies. I'm tired of this Soup dumpling .. yadda yadda yadda.. you want the real stuff go to Richmond BC. For NY i have to travel all the way to Flushing or Brooklyn Chinatown to get a decent Cantonese style Dim Sum. :(

Re: Save the Food Trucks of Jersey City

The big question is what's wrong with the food trucks? If ppl in Jersey City have not noticed Food Trucks that are staples for commuters and foodies alike become actual brick and mortar restaurants. Ex: Kraverie, and recent addition of the Taco truck that is now a restaurant by Hamilton Park. So honestly whats wrong with them food trucks?

DD found a perfect spot for the 10am and 3pm coffee rush from the many office workers near by. Newport has been expanding and expanding, but overall there are still many spaces available since many stores relocated within the mall.

You can model any HS in Jersey City to McNair, but if you do not get the top ranked, motivated, dedicated high achievers, PLUS, parents who are committed to the program and are willing to get involved in their child's education and the institution, it's not going to work. It's a partnership between the teachers, the administration, the student and their parents.

I think in this particular incident, those kids parents are to blame. They should be the ones held accountable. How? I don't know.

but I still think some kind of non-lethal, physical beating should be an option

Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School on

So to answer your question, why don't the mayor use this H.S as a model to set the standards for the rest of Jersey City H.S?

as a newly transplant for San Francisco, the board and SF mayor's used a similar standard model of having underachieving H.S. follow Lowell (nationally ranked H.S.)as an example. Currently, San Francisco now has over 3 H.S ranked in the top 500 US schools.

McNair is not a normal high school as an entrance exam is required to attend. They also accept students from outside the city.

Yes, the other High Schools should be more like McNair, I agree with you 100%.

Why should all JC high schools not try and get "the top ranked, motivated, dedicated high achievers, PLUS, parents who are committed to the program and are willing to get involved in their child's education and the institution"

JC would be infinitely better if those children and those parents lived here.



It seems the more and more of "Those" parents are moving into Hamilton Park, Newport, Van Vrost etc... but i disagree with you.. if you may recall.. H.S. has a big impact on teenagers.. if the High School culture embraces education, high achievement, and integration to a higher standard of living (imagination, dedication, drive, goals, careers) then why not?

If you disagree then you underestimate the influence of H.S. culture it can make you better or it can make you worse. Back to the issue at hand growing up.. i saw a dramatic change in certain school systems in California where the "being white" for getting A's was accepted, education and athletics can be combined, H.S developing imagination working with firms around the area "Genentech" teaching new ideas and learning environment not familiar to the usual Math, Reading, History etc.. but actual hand on training and learning which accepted majority "minority" students.. they learned and embraced the culture of creativity, education and success.

This discussion is very interesting. First off, no one should be harassed and no, it doesn't come with living in the city. City living does not equate to being harassed. "City" is generally an urban settlement with a large population and with that comes more pollution, more cars, more restaurants, more people, etc as compared to the suburbs or rural areas. Harassment is not associated with "city". That is like saying terrorism is associated with Muslim which is also blatantly biased and completely subjective.

As far as project housing, I think it is safe to say that although the idea might be noble, the implementation and "checks and balances" has been a colossal failure.

But to get right to the point, our schools in JC are failing our children (any viable measure of this proves my point - test scores, graduation rates, reading level, math level, etc.) so when these children grow up to be delinquent teens and delinquent young adults, are you really surprised?

Forget about your tax dollars funding public housing, how about your tax dollars funding these failing public schools - Dickinson, Snyder, Lincoln, Ferris? By any reasonable measure, they should all be closed down ASAP.

And yes, I'm aware that there are bright kids at these schools and hard working teachers but when overall, you have a failing institution, one or two kids or teachers does not justify failing the majority of kids. It's like a company with 1 or 2 hard workers and 99% failures. Would that company ever last more than a day? Can you imagine having your tax dollars pay for that company to stay open and produce a piss poor product? Unfortunately, the piss poor product that our JC public schools produce are the delinquents you see in the streets.

So far, no one running - Healy or Fulop - has really addressed what they will do to make our children more competitive.

Re: Jersey City officials want NJ to make state schools affordable for illegal immigrants

Honestly, what most people have forgotten is not about legal/illegal etc.. The biggest problem that most should focus in Jersey City but more so for NJ is "Classism." We are at a point where our higher education system is becoming more and more unafforable. We should seriously look into that more than argue over something that neither legal or illegal "citizens" will soon be unable to afford.
