was the hole cut or punched with a small diameter object? I had a cargo van stolen from in front of my apartment by this method a few years back. the metal is so thin that they can use a punch to poke a hole and gain access to the locking mechanism. after getting the van back from newark where it was dropped and collecting parking tickets, I invested in some hockey puck locks that you will see on most contractor vans ... a huge round lock and hasp that makes it very hard to use the punch method - not practical for cars, but it worked for me.

Re: What Jersey City Restaurant Do You Miss the Most?

Walter's Luncheonette (which later became Kitchen Cafe)

In high school we made up a song to remember the daily special sandwiches at Walter's. Monday was sausage day and you had to get there before 12:30 or they would probably be sold out. I can still taste the hot pastrami sandwich there and have not had one as good since they left. They had a few booths and a long counter to sit at. The kitchen was in the same spot it is in now. I used the old wooden phone booth there to call in sick to school before hopping on the PATH into the city. Walter (really named George, I think Walter was his dad?) was a class act with a great sense humor. This was the late 80's and early 90's.

Re: Stop Signs on Erie Street - Steven FUlop

What is the difference between Bloomfield Ave in Hoboken and Erie Street? Same kind of problems and brownstones and residents who would complain about noise, yet they have rubber speed bumps. DOT talks about liabilty? Check out the rest of the roads in town with their own reverse speed bumps - potholes. Let me get it straight ... let the roads fall apart and it is not a liability issue, but actually attempt to exert some control over speeders and it is a liability issue? The rubber speed bumps in Hoboken have been there for years. It is a crock that JC refuses to entertain the idea. Rubber speed bumps causing noise? Are you kidding me? I lived in Paulus Hook while they were doing "dynamic compaction" to prepare a construction site. I watched as things fell off of shelves and plaster cracked in my rental building (brownstone). The city sent out someone to measure the vibration and determined that it was not sufficient to stop the project or cause serious damage. Dropping a 40 ton weight to pound the ground does not cause a problem but a 2 ton car going over a rubber speed bump will be problematic? I appreciate your efforts Mr. Fulop, but I don't think even you are buying the crap that DOT is selling.

putting in Stop signs will do little to deter people speeding on Erie. Rubber speed bumps (and I don't care what you say DPW they do it in Hoboken and it works fine) would be better and couple that with some g*d damn enforcement for a prolonged period and you might see a change. Bump out the curbs at the intersections and add speed bumps if you are serious about slowing the Erie Street madness.

I have a novel idea alb. If you are wondering about the portion sizes at Ox, why not give them a try. It seems like there has been lots of speculation and assumption on your part, without ever having set foot in the place. Did you examine the menu before claiming the prices were \"birthday\" level? The place may look swanky to you, or even just not your style, but let\'s not judge a book by its cover (unless Fabio is involved). I don\'t think many restaurants would ever say that they have enough customers. Check out the menu again and you might find that it is possible to eat there and not break the bank. It might not fit your needs for a weekly restaurant, but there\'s no need to criticize a new restaurant without even checking it out. I know someone (hint hint) who could even watch you child, if you wanted to grab a dinner/brunch with your hubby.

As someone who lives closer to Montclair than JC these days, let me say that the playdates were better in JC, and so far, so was the food!

Long live Ox!

alb - no one can find fault with you for having an opinion on something as subjective as a restaurant and the food they serve/prices they charge. the kind of place you want would be a welcome addition in JC, but who knows when something like that will happen.

as for the design and feel of the place, I think it is still very much a work in progress. give it some time. the lack of art on the walls seems like a temporary situation. do you remember what used to be in that space? and how it looked? Did anyone ever eat at La Primavera? I for one am very happy to see that place gone and all traces of it wiped clean.

Has anyone checked out the brunch menu? It seems like they are already on top of the whole $$$ thing. Prix Fixe brunch and other options starting at $6 and up.


Long live Ox.

Re: VERIZON FIOS

The FiOS install can take several hours or an entire day. They run the fiber optic cable from the street to your buidling and install a box on the outside or preferably the inside of the building. This box is about 12 inches square. There is a lead acid battery back up system which is also installed to give your phone power in case of an outtage. The battery is your responsibility to replace when it wears out in a few years. The battery back-up box needs to be plugged in to recharge the battery if it gets drained and I was also told that it contains the power supply for the main larger box. The smaller box is about 7 inches square. The larger box has the coaxial cables coming out of it to distribute the lines into the building and work just like cable ones. If you hook up the TV to it you can get the standard TV channels without a set top box. These lines also connect to the router for the internet service. If you are getting the FiOS phone service too, they may cut your copper landline, or at the least disconnect it from the central office.

ComcASSt had the worst customer service I have ever experienced and Verizon is slightly better. In the suburb I live in now, most people are switching to Verizon FiOS because it is the first alternative to the ComcASSt monopoly.

I dined there during the preview dinners and enjoyed everything I ate and drank. There was a limited menu, and I can't wait to try all of the other food that will be added to the menu as time goes on.

Bourbon Steamed Mussels - rich flavor that still managed to be light and a welcome change to the same old steamed mussels I have had elsewhere.

Steak - Cooked to perfection on top of some buttery good potatoes and watercress.

Nutella Tart - mmm ... like a warm brownie with espresso.

Service was excellent and attentive without being overbearing.

I have yet to try the Jersey City drink (their take on a Manhattan), but will have one the next time I visit which will be soon.

Sounds like the park behind the Light Rail stop at Essex Street where they used to have that rollerblade rink and a basketball court. Across the street from Claremont Cove and on the corner of Essex and Greene I believe. Used to be the spot for pre-dance partying for St. Peter's Prep boys.

This is a huge loss for the JCPD and citizens of Jersey City. Deputy Chief Sheyka performed his job with honor, integrity, and zeal. He was well respected on the job and on the streets as a fair and just cop. I am deeply saddened by this news and will keep his family and friends in my thoughts during this difficult time. He will be missed.
