They are actually able to keep their prices lower by NOT accepting any credit cards. Its expensive to accept credit

I believe the topic of dog owners ignoring the pet free zones was raised during the final design phase of the park when the size of the dog runs were raised as an issue. Mostly the concern was that not making the dog runs large enough -- particularly because the dog run spaces were divided awkwardly making the run for large breeds equal in size to the small breed run -- would not result in an abatement of off leash dogs in the other areas of the park as intended.

It seems based on the above quarrels here, those concerns are being fully realized as dog owners continue to ignore the undersized dog runs.


The dog runs have nothing to do with it. There are certain dogs that can never go into a dog run no matter how large they are built.

We went Saturday for Brunch and our meals were very good to excellent. I love the atmosphere and design of this place and would strongly recommend the brunch and cannot wait to try their dinner.
We sat upstairs and slowly watched the resturant fill with the diverse crowd that Jersaey City is so well known for.
Our appetizers were out of control AWSOME. Wild boar prosciutto, Pate's and diffrent cheeses to compliment each other ( and our wine) perfectly. Our waiter was fantastic with his recommendations for both wine and food.

Braised beef short ribs, boursin scrambeled eggs, pouched eggs, basil hollandaise, crispy pancetta, foccasia crestini and a few other items all were a part of our meals that we shared beacuse we could not decide on just one menu item. My favorite was the braised short ribs. OMG. The owner could not have been nicer and more open to hear suggestions or recommendations for his place. He brought over so many diffrent items for us to try includeing a creme brulee to die for.
My plans for next Saturday are to go to Satis for Brunch I cant wait!

Just want to add. They do have a wine menu. You pick and they run to the store down the block and get. SEAMLESS.

It sucks when your dog gets hurt and I do think the other owner needs to train their dog better.

But Yorkies are as fragile as eggshells and need to be treated as such, which means keeping them away from anything larger than a Chihuahua. I?m amazed they can even walk with those pencil-thin legs. If you?re going to keep a teeny tiny dog as a pet you should be aware that large dogs are going to treat it like a chewtoy, that kids might play too rough with it, and that a bird of prey might pick it up if it?s left alone.


Ridiculous statement. I have a very small chihuahua who prefers to play with VERY large dogs. It just depends on the dog. Large dogs DO NOT treat small dogs as chew toys. Once again it depends on the dog. Come on.......

Dog sales should be banned in the City.


And yes, tern and I seem to be the only two people in the city who know what "curb your dog" means. It does not mean shit and piss on sidewalks. And I have NEVER seen a properly curbed dog (and that's out of the 10,000 of them at Newport.)


FYI I have never been called a careless, thoughtless slob. If you knew me you would eat your words and choke on them. I also stood for a good 20 minutes on a Jersey City side walk with one of my dogs yesterday talking to a JCPO. She ( my dog not the cop) pooed and peed while we were talking, I bent over and picked up the poo. If you want the pee wiped up then you are behond any human help! He DID NOT GIVE ME A TICKET beacuse it is not against the law. So.... what I am trying to get at is...... You should eat your words again and stop being a bigot. All dog owners are not eqaul just like all Bigots are not eqaul.

Hope your psychiatrist returns soon. You need help with your dangerous thoughts!

As far as recommending people pee on the doors of dog owners, are you HONESTLY going to tell me that any of this sanctimonious group of polluters, ANY at all, is picking up his dog's PISS?

So yes, I can generalize that dog owers are careless, thoughtless slobs unless they use only their OWN property for dog wastes, and in Jersey City the sidewalk slobs are the huge majority.

If the wastes are so innocuous why not keep the dogs in apartments 24/7 and clean up your own carpet with a paper bag and scrub brush.

I had 2 cats and there was never a bit of cat waste even one inch outside my bathroom...I didn't share with neighbors. What makes Fido and his lazy owners special?

I have a feeling that your psychiatrist may be on a very long vacation and you come on here to vent and vent. Maybe you should consider living in a community where there are no dogs? Every city in the United States has the same exact problem that we have here in Jersey City. There are jerks that don?t care and don?t pick up their dogs waste. Deeming and Grouping all dog owners as being the same is just wrong. I am not going to sit here and explain to you why that is wrong unless you pay me what you are not paying your psychiatrist while he/she is on vacation! Go have a drink or some good sex you may feel a little better! Of course this is just MPO

By the way do you get mad at squirel pee and bird poop? What about rat pee?

After all, the fecal content is probably similar although the size might differ a tad.

Dogowners are generally inconsiderate and none of them knows or cares what CURB YOUR DOG means.
A corollary is that NO DOGS IN THE GARDEN looks like Sanskrit to them. They think landscaping is for canine urine.


I think the parallel thing to do might be for non-dog owners to start peeing on the doors of dog owners. Hopefully they have an inward sloping lintel.


I think it is ridiculous that you pool all dog owners as one. It shows lack of education and lack of consciousness; it is no different than pooling all parents as one, all people as one, etc.
Curb your dog has a couple of meanings yes. In the long run what it means is control your dog (and yes control your dog?s poop.)
Stop insinuating that all dog owners are the same, they are not. I pick up after my dogs poop and I know many dog owners that do. Instead of attacking us as a group maybe you should go at it on an individual basis. Wouldn?t that be the smarter thing to do?

I do realize that police put their lives on the line and are important and all, but since when did being a police officer replace being in "waste management?"

My property taxes went up $588. I'm unemployed and it's getting increasingly difficult to make ends meet. I have to be honest, it pisses me off when I see a cop at a construction site sitting on his ass in a luxury vehicle.


It should not piss you off. Sometimes cops have spouses that make really good salaries and they choose to drive a luxury vehicle........ or..... sit in it and drink their coffee.
If I were sitting on my ass all day long I would want to do it in a mercedes too!
Dont just assume things and then go and get mad over it.

I call BS on this one. By that logic, every fire truck/engine in every firehouse should be running 24/7.


1 car/truck vs a fleet.

When they are on the road it is their law they must leave their cars running period.
They have tons of electrical gear set up on the cars
( computers, radio, siren, flashlight charges, modems, etc. that if they did not leave them running then batteries would run out)

They are working on the signs, they will be corrected. I asked early this am if dogs were banned from the walkways and the answer is absolutely NOT banned. They however must be on a leash which makes sense.

I have yet to see a dog owner abusing the park, we however are being verbally abused. You bet your ass I will respond. Education is power and the sooner they know we are allowed on the grass on the 8th street side the sooner they will stop yelling!

Tonight around 11:00pm I walked my dogs around the park got lazy and decided to cross thru the park. I walked on the walkway untill I got to the 8th street side, stoped and chatted with a few people and went on my way. I went into the grass where it is deemed a "pet friendly zone" and within seconds an older gentleman started yelling at me for being on the grass. I tried to explain to him that this side is pet friendly but he would not listen to a single word. This is the 4th time some one has verbally attacked me for being on the grass. WTF!!! I dont let my dogs dig, I pick up the crap, I do not go into the pet free zone, yet still ............these idiots that dont know any better yell.
What really got me was that right next to me there were a bunch of kids that were messing with the sprinklers trying to fill water balloons. They clearly knocked the sprinkler head off right in front of us. I yelled at them and shooed them off and bent down to fix the sprinkler. He STILL continued to lecture me, standing over me, bitching about the dogs and grass.

Needless to say I lost my temper and called him names as he walked off calling me crazy!!! UGH!!

The signs for the pet free area (two of the four lawns) should be up by the end of the week. Until then, people are free to walk their leashed dogs on all lawn areas.

I saw police in the park yesterday. The only request for cops in the park from the HPNA that I know of was for patrols near the basketball courts after 10PM due to noise issues.


Once again the entire park is by no means PET FREE. WTF!!!!!
thanks stevehpna will enjoy the green untill the signs go up.

The court will continue to be a depressing blight on the park. Meanwhile. twice now, people have lied to my wife by trying to tell her that dogs were not allowed on the grass anymore. They claim "dogs are only allowed in the dog-runs". This is a lie and a cheap attempt to control people who are doing nothing wrong. One guy actually pulled over in his car to yell at her. I wish I had been there as I would have gotten a plate number and had the guy charged with harassment.


People are crazy for pulling over and yelling.
But......... I was on the grass over the weekend with both my dogs chatting with a couple that was takeing in some sun and a police officer told me that I had to get off beacuse there are no dogs allowed on the grass. Did they change the rules again? He actually went thru the park and told all owners to get their dogs off the grass. I think it is very confusing beacuse the signs are not up yet.
I would like to know are we or are we not allowed on the grass?

I will not go on it if we are not allowed but it is very hard to enter the park and not have them sniff around the grass.

I was also told that the fine was being raised to some where in the hundreds after the signs go up. Is this true?
Where are the alleged signs?

Could it be that the parents had their dogs with them while their kids played?

I understand your frustration I really do but the fact that the BB courts are there is just not going to change. Your thought process if applied to diffrent scenarios in life would spell fail. Would it make you less frustrated to sit back and watch it be totally trashed and say TOLD YOU SO? They are being trashed by kids. We are adults. I dont live on that side of the park but I cant stand to see what is being done. The more we sit on our computers and bitch about it the more frustrated we become and the more trashed that area of the park becomes. I am not good at organization when it comes to things like this. I need to be told when,where, and what to do.

In actuality they ( the kids playing hoop) are the ones that are doing something illegal and unethical. Noise after 10:00pm! Littering.
I was just out there. Today is Wednesday, it is both a school and a work day tomm. They are loud, swearing and their game is not anywhere near being over! It's to cool for a/c and is a perfect night for open windows... Or not....
If I lived where I could hear them I may be crancky enough to call the cops on them and get them to shut up.

Since then, I pretty much determined these kids are up to no good.

My dog however, cleans up after itself, talks to me about Chaucer. Debates the merits of smooth vs electric jazz and never kicks me in the ankles. My dog is also cheaper then your kid. And my dog, does not take the car on the weekend so he can bang his girlfriend in the park. My dog also does not go to spring break in Cancun where he dives in the pool from the 10th floor and dies. In a sense, my dog is 100% more times reliable then your kid.

What does bother me is that I have called the police and will continue to do so, but I wish they would be a little more pro-active given the police station is two blocks away on 7th St. I think that if enough people call the police on a regular basis they would just patrol around the park on their own without being prompted. One way would be that instead of just driving by and using the megaphone, why not, for the first few months, stop by in the park, take down names and see who is playing. If it is the same people every night, issue a fine for disturbing the peace and if this still doesn't act as a deterrent, bring it up a notch each time it happens. While this would be an onerous way to deal with the noise issue, it would probably not be an issue after doing this on a regular basis over one summer.


When you call you have to tell them that is very loud and that you think there is a huge FIGHT. They respond with in seconds
