We have. Nice atmosphere, traditional fare (we had falafel sandwiches), excellent mint tea, welcoming service and very reasonably priced. They have backgammon boards and of course, hookahs. Added bonus: Vintage Egyptian movies (subtitled). We will visit again.

Re: Census 2010 7th time

Just can't stay away


During the original mailing, we received three forms to complete: Apartment 1, 2 and 3. We are a single family home so I sent back two forms indicating our address was a single family home, emailed the Census folks and called them to state same. Within weeks we received three more forms for the 3 apartments. I completed one and sent back two indicating again that the address was a single family dwelling. To date, I have now taken two phone calls to answer census questions because they have no record of our compeleted forms (questions from two census takers were different). Since those phone calls, there are numerous voicemails for us regarding the urgent need for us to call so we can be counted in the Census. I certainly understand the importance of this effort but have no patience for inefficiency and don't feel compelled to again answer questions because they for some reason have been unable to retain all previous informaton provided to them.

Re: Is Jersey City Ready For A Food Coop?

The Purple Dragon coops are not seasonal. Produce is available throughout the year. Additionally, other food items are available outside of vegetables and fruits including meat, eggs, honey, etc. Each pod has limited membership but two have sprouted up since the first one, I believe, due to demand.

Purple Dragon is already here in Jersey City. I'm a member of the first pod. Granted, this is not a retail store but we are provided a glorious amount of local and organic produce every two weeks at a reasonable cost. No work by members required other than pick-up.

Re: TAX PROTEST Feb 24th City Hall - WE'RE GONNA RUN THIS TOWN!

It is surprising that between the online presence about the tax increase issue as well as print media, that so many remain uninformed. I do think many don't care because it is easier to ignore than to become proactive. Many times the information is being spread by word of mouth among neighbors and that will pick up momentum has time goes by. Everyone, speak up when you can and keep your neighbors informed. There was an overwhelming turnout Wednesday evening and there's no reason why attendance at council meetings won't keep increasing. This affects everyone who lives here in one way or another.

In fact, I was talking with a friend yesterday who did not even know about the pending tax increase, and for her the potential effects can be significant. The tax increases information has not been widely shared and those outside of the online communities may not have been made aware of the potentially devastating impact this unprecedented tax increase may have on the community.

Healy isn?t likely to partake in due diligence because of apathy on the part of the citizen involvement in local politics. Few and far between stand up to the mayor and city council and it?s only the same handful of citizens over and over again who question the practices of our city government.

Regarding Ms. Lopez?s reasoning during her trial, I knew when I relocated to New Jersey that I had to relinquish my Louisiana driver?s license in order to receive a New Jersey license and she did too. Using her membership at a local church to prove residency is also ignorant. I?m still on the roles at a church in New Orleans but I legally reside here in Jersey City. All of her answers regarding where she legally resides are a sham. If she is that ignorant regarding these simple issues of residency as well as just signing legal documents without reading them, she is not qualified to represent the people of Jersey City.

Re: Who here really, really hates Comcast?

My experiences with Comcast were so awful and frustrating, I refuse to ever pay them another cent. Outages were common with no reasons provided. They disconnected service at one point although it was not requested and had the audacity to charge a reconnect fee for their error. A month after that, I terminated service and for four months they continued to invoice and send threatening letters. It took hours on the phone with their uniformed representations and their inept accounting department to get the fiasco settled. I?m happy to wait for FIOS to come to our area.

I can highly recommend Oradell Animal Hospital. One of our cats needed emergency orthopaedic surgery this week. The facility is state of the art, the front desk is amazingly customer service oriented and the medical staff is absolutely qualified, communicative and compassionate.

My sympathies to all of you in coping with your dire neighborhood situation regarding noise, trash, gangs, street fights, disrepectful students, loitering and illegal activities. I am grateful I don?t have to contend with all of that. You might want to look further into what the mayor describes as a business curfew ordinance that City Council implemented over a year and half ago.

From the Mayor’s State of the City Address on February 19, 2008:

cityofjerseycity.com/uploadedFiles/Public_Notices/Press_Releases/State%20of%20the%20City%20Address.pdf

Tonight I report to you that we are well on our way to achieving that goal. For two years in a row, crime in Jersey City has dropped dramatically in all categories. We have hired scores of new police officers. We have expanded the use of crime surveillance cameras. We have implemented a business curfew ordinance to enhance the safety of our neighborhoods. We have instituted a gang task force and the crime fighting method called CompStat, which directs police attention to where crime occurs.

To be honest, I’ve not noticed any signs of a curfew in my neighborhood (Monticello Avenue area). Some businesses close around 6:00 and others between 10:00 and 11:00 in the evening. There are still people, mostly young, walking in the area after the closures. Does anyone know the details of this ordinance? It seems ineffective and/or ignored.

I am happy to see this area presented in a positive light for a change. There are many community groups and individuals working hard to make this part of town a great place to live. I imagine most of us love the challenge of maintaining and restoring our homes to their original splendor. The neighbors are wonderful on our particular street. As Greenville Chick mentioned, the 87 is right there on Monticello. During rush hour, you can get to Journal Square in minutes. It?s also walkable if you are so inclined. If you have a car, getting downtown, to the Holland Tunnel or Turnpike is a breeze.

Madam, have you ever left the ?safe haven? of downtown to explore the rest of the city? I live in an area you would like to see cut off from yours. My street is tree-lined with a newly paved road; all of the rowhouses are maintained beautifully and historically with flowers and plants in the front. There are no bars on the windows and doors nor is there graffiti or people loitering. Rarely is there loud music. The neighbors are wonderful. They earn their livings as doctors, lawyers, artists, small business owners, librarians, teachers and public servants.

I am an owner and taxpayer with no criminal record. I work in New York City for a well-known company. I am a registered voter and vote. I attend council meetings. I am involved in my neighborhood as well as the Jersey City community at large. I volunteer my time to the local TNR initiative. I have a daughter who attends private school in New York State who will one day become yet another asset to Jersey City residing the area you find so distasteful. I also spend a great deal of money downtown and would be happy to take my business to New York City should you not want me on your sacred ground.

Please get off your high horse as you really have no idea that the number of worthwhile caring citizens residing in ?that other part? of this city truly outnumber those you are having issues with.

According to Gnome General:
Quote:
.....If they could build a wall between downtown and everything beyond the turnpike it would be grand. When a neighborhood has garbage, graffiti, no trees, loud music, people loitering on every stoop and homes that have metal gates on their front windows - you cannot deny that aesthetically it translates that this hood is bad. Go call a waaambulance.
