Sexual Assault

Didn’t catch the meat of this story, but apparently a female was sexually assaulted near 131 Willow Avenue tonight. Sounds like they caught the “actors” and are bringing them to police headquarters… good.

Group of baseball hat wearing thugs

Moments ago – “a group of six” pinheads were drinking at the 8th Street Tavern (mixed races – black, white, hispanic) – when a couple of them thought it was cool to steal a few shot glasses. The bartender (or owner) came out, and one of them smashed a shot glass, and proceeded to assault the bartender. They then fled north, then split up. Police are searching the area, including the Stevens campus (in case they were students).

Yes – alcohol is legal.

well it WAS called St Mary’s grocery & deli…and for the 10yrs i lived 2 blocks away it was, as described on various sites “Spanish American Grocery, Deli, Spanish prepared food, Cafe con leche…” but clearly that has changed in the last year…though i do not think new arab owners took over in 2005.
so i apologize to all those that shop in this fine establishment and enjoy their friendly cashier. all except young skywalker who if i had my way would make the evening news being cut in half under the wheels of the next 126 bus right in the middle of Washington street. hope springs eternal…

Well Strand you’ll be happy to know that after 9 years as a Blowboken resident, I moved out of the Mile Square City just last month. So while I won’t be around much anymore, I will still drop in from time to time to bust your chops! But you probably want to find yourself a new archenemy.

It’s a grocery store with a wide variety of products and it has been for years. To call it a “Hispanic Store” is inaccurate.

Not that Strand ever lets the facts get in the way of a good rant!

most, if not all, the products sold in that store are labeled in spanish, even if they are products manufactured in the US. most of the produce items are imported from Latin Amer countries, and the employees speak little english. the radio/television playing is in spanish as well. is that enough to call it a “hispanic store” for you?

Um, no. Actually, it sounds and looks like a grocery store. Groceries are sold at Grocery stores (like clothing is sold at clothing stores and cheese is sold at cheese stores, and so on and so forth).

I can find numerous products labeled in Spanish and Chinese and Italian at Shop-Rite or A&P. That doesn’t make either a “Hispanic store”, “Italian store” or “Chinese store”.

There are such things as specialty shops which sell, say, food products and other items from Mexico. Mexican stores, if you will. But I’ve seen them in Jersey City Heights– not here so much.

Why don’t we just chalk it up to an ignorant assumption and call it a day with a hug, strand tramp?

Actually, I think they are Arabs. It was sold to them a couple years ago.

Yeah I think the old proprietors (circa 2004-05 or so) were hispanic but the newer owners are of some middle eastern ethnicity, and they seem to speak English OK. Almost all the stuff they sell is typical convenience store stuff, which is labeled in English. Some of the produce might be from LatAm which would make maybe one sliver of Strand’s post accurate, but the rest is BS.

There’s a store on 2nd/Willow that sells Hispanics?

Fascinating.
