I haven't used them yet but I called and got an estimate from Aussie Mobile Pet Grooming.

I see a van in my neighborhood regularly. I believe that one of my neighbors must use them.

Re: General pedestrian safety near Danforth & JFK in Greenville

I live a few blocks up from there. There's a park around the corner on Old Bergen that can be slightly sketchy but definitely not scary or anything that should be cause for concern. There's usually parking right within a few storefronts of that building. Most of what you read in the newspaper isn't in this section of Greenville.

I'm actually signing up for that deal myself. I went in a few months back to speak to the instructor and he is a really nice guy. I just didn't feel like paying the money at the time so I was pretty excited to see this deal.

Are you taking mass transit or driving?

Touch base if you do end up going

Seymond is the owner operator and did a fantastic job on my roof. He spent extra time repairing the rotted wood on the front pediment which was not part of the job quoted and no extra charge. Excellent service and a great job.


I wanted to second this. I had some leaking after Irene and Mr. Thompson came out and gave me a very fair estimate. He showed up on time to perform the work and did a great job.

I haven't noticed any more issues with the recent rain.

Lexington has/had a problem with a crew called Lex Mob.

I think it depends on what part of Harrison to be honest. It might help to give the cross-street.

Some parts of Jewett are nice and some parts are dicey so I think again it depends on the cross-street there as well. Same with Fairview.

I'm not really familiar with the other streets.

And, there is at least one building near the park on Stegman that has a problem with drug dealing.

It actually is pretty feasible. I worked in the vicinity of rock center for several years and witnessed my share of purse snatchings during the day with a fairly heavy police presence.

Plenty of robberies happen during broad daylight. You may have more witnesses but it's also easier to blend into a crowd.

Thanks for all the feedback!

There seems to be a lot of surprise reactions from the wide-eyed new residents of Jersey City.


I'd be pretty sad for humanity if the day comes when people are NOT surprised at someone getting gunned down in broad daylight.

A friend of mine has a rental property in Jersey City. She was recently contacted by someone on section 8 who is interested in renting the property.

Where can she get more information on the requirements for landlords that rent to section 8 tenants? For example, is a separate inspection by the JC Housing Division required, etc.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Unleashed Mastiffs Attack JC Man Downtown this Morning

I am in no way suggesting that dogs should take over the universe. But the fact of the matter is that 90% of dog owners follow the current regulations. Do you thinkt he 10% that don\'t are actually going to take a test, get insurance, etc.

They obviously choose not to follow rules to begin with so how will adding more rules help. I just don\'t see the point.
The problem you have with my argument is basically the same one that I have with yours. There are currently laws on the books that are not followed or enforced. So you think that by adding more laws you\'re going to get those people to comply. does not compute.

Can we look at this from the perspective of a non dog owner for just one second?

So that dog owners can have the amusement of a dog, (I exclude the case of seeing eye dogs or working dogs that serve an actual purpose) I have to deal with (1) shit and piss on sidewalks, which ultimately ends up in our rivers and streams, (2) much of the already scarce park space being reserved for or taken over by dogs, and (3) the risk, albeit small, of being attacked by someone\'s dog. Is that fair to me, the non dog owner? I mean seriously, there are two tiny parks for tens of thousands of people in all of downtown JC, and we dedicate a quarter of one of them to dogs?

I don\'t dislike dogs, I am just resisting their take over of the universe. Someone has to represent non dog owners because dog owners do a superb job of representing their interests. (for example, calling anyone who describes dog attacks for what theyare is being hysterical. It must be a rather hysterical experience to be attacked by two massive dogs outside your home, don\'t ya think?)

This idea that people need to act right, I mean, that is a wonderful thought, but that is your solution to dog bites? People need to act right? You are going to tell the victim of dog bites, well...we are encouraging people to act right?

I guess you could say \"Despite thousands of years of evidence to the contrary, eventually people will stop being irresponsible, reckless, or careless and our new policy of telling people to act right is going to work!\"

Um ok Crazy. You clearly have a problem with dogs. Which is fine. It takes all kinds... No one in this thread suggested that people should get bitten or mauled. In fact, everyone basically said if you keep your dogs under control things like this wouldn't occur.

Dogs are regulated heavily... there is legislation, licensing and health requirements that owners are SUPPOSED to adhere to. I'd estimate that 90% of people do. There are 10% that don't and more rules aren't going to change their behavior or physically restrain their dogs.

If people would take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and if the existing laws would be ENFORCED this wouldn't be a problem.

Moral of the story... people just need to act right.

I don't believe any Person nor any dog is evil. Dogs do what dogs do. Unfortunately dogs, from time to time, attack people and we can't change that.

What we can change is where we let dogs go, when we let them go there, and who we let own dogs. No person in a modern city should be exposed to the risk of, of all things, being brutally attacked by a dog. This means some responsible dog owners will be inconvenienced or perhaps, in some cases, not permitted to own a dog in highly crowded urban areas.

Sorry, it doesn't seem extreme to me that I don't think human beings should EVER be bitten or mauled by an animal so that someone else can have a dog for their personal amusement. Call me crazy.

Pits were actually bred to be extremely friendly and docile around humans. Obviously that's not the case with all of them but keep in mind that aggressive pits are the exception and not the rule.

With that being said, hopefully this will result in better enforcement of leash laws in this city.

I thought this was a sweet and positive article about the breed. And one that has a happy ending.

Pit Bull Takes Bullets for Family
(Dec. 11) - An Oklahoma City family is
calling a beloved pit bull a hero after the
dog took three bullets while fending off an
intruder, KWTV reports.
Roberta Trawick said she was sitting in
her living room when a man came
through the front door, holding a gun. The
family?s pit bull, D-Boy, raced in from
another room, ready to attack. The
intruder then began shooting, hitting the
dog three times before fleeing the home.
D-Boy is back with his family, having
recovered from his bullet wounds.
?I?m sorry my dog got shot, but I still got
my family and we still got our dog,? family
member Angelic Shoemaker told KWTV.
Police have not caught the intruder.
Get the full story at KWTV.

You do know you have to get a parking permit right? It is $10/year for residents, but I think you will have to change your plates to NJ (not 100% sure). I do know, however, that your insurance must reflect your current address, you will have to show a lease or something else to prove you are living here, and your registration must be in your name. The Parking Authority is located on Central Ave in JC. You should get this taken care of ASAP or you will continue getting tickets and they will probably just tow/boot your car at a certain point.
Also...FYI-there is no street cleaning on Wednesdays.

http://www.getnj.com/jerseycity/parkingpermit.shtml


Not all streets/neighborhoods require parking permits. If you live close to Bayonne then odds are that you don't need one.

If you can, go to court to fight the tickets. I'd also take photos of the area where you received the 2nd ticket to show that there wasn't proper signage.

Obama Supporter Bus Trips to Doylestown, PA every Saturday until the election!
#29
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Please pass along this info to any of your friends (especially NYers without cars) who might be interested in spending some time over the next few weekends volunteering for the Obama campaign in Bucks County, PA.

http://uesobama.eventbrite.com/

Obama Supporter Bus Trips from NYC to Doylestown, PA every Saturday until the election!

Weekly Event - Every Saturday: 07:15 AM to 07:30 PM (ET)

New York, NY

Join your friends for the last two Saturdays (October 25 and November 1) of the election for a canvassing trip to Doylestown, PA. Doylestown is a crucial area that is depending on your help. A bus will be taking volunteers down for a day of canvassing and getting out the vote. It's easy and fun. The campaign needs your help. The bus leaves from East 79th Street at 7:15 AM and will have you back around 7 PM the same day.


And if you're taking PA for granted:

1) In the past week alone, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Sarah Palin all campaigned in Pennsylvania - it doesn't look like the campaigns are taking PA for granted... 2) Politico.com ran a poll showing Barack with a slight lead in Buck's County (where Doylestown is) and referred to Bucks as one of the 4 decisive counties nationwide. 3) Senator Obama himself has warned us this week never to doubt Democrats' ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. 4) Something like 80% of volunteers at the campaign office this weekend were from out of state. What more do you need to know? THEY STILL NEED US!!! And we're helping an incredible amount.

If you're uncomfortable paying online or have any questions, please email me at uesobama@yahoo.com, but online payment is greatly preferred.

Barack needs your help, we're in the home stretch so it's no time for complacency, or to take things for granted.

If the problems occur after 10pm then enforcing the curfew would help assuming the persons were under age. However, these shots were fired duing the day.

The police do not enforce the curfew because they have to stay with the children until a guardian comes to get them. We know the guardians are not really guarding their children are they would not be out shooting up the neighborhood. So the guardians are likely no where to be found at 11pm or 12am or 1am and therefore the cops have to stay at the station house until they do come. Instead, they should be out in the community where they are needed.

It's a mess.

I also believe the police and municipal government are very cautious about how far they push things because of the fear of lawsuits.

I agree with you but that's only half true. They don't take juvenille's back to the station. There's a facility where they take them so it's not a matter of the police having to babysit and being taken away from other duties. However you are right in that there parents generally don't pick them up which is why the curfew isn't enforced.
