Re: Ahris Kitchen: Korean food in downtown Jersey City

They resteraunt has not posted anything about opening. They want to open as much as you want to eat there. They will hopefully open next week. I'd suggest calling before you go. Opening a resteraunt is hard in JC, cut them some slack.

BTW their food is very good and totally worth the wait.

i'm gonna go with you really aren't all that smart.

So you saw the website that says "COMING SOON", helpfully circled for you, in case you missed the big red letters, the phone number to call and didn't, read this thread which says "for kickstarter supporters" ... and were like "yea, this is clearly open, let's go!"

Saw the website, menu and store hours. So decided to take my family there one more time, and lo behold it's still closed...3 months later.

I am so done with this place, if you are not going to open stop posting like it has.

I am looking at a gas station and an old temple in Kingston, NY that i want to convert to a weekend spot. I wish JC had more of these type of places but they are very few near transportation.

I was on the Turnpike Nwk Bay Extension this morning around 8:45 - took over 30 mins. going west to get over the bridge due to construction. Great coordination by the State since the Skyway is closed over the weekend. NJ & You - perfect together!

What does it take to pull off a conversion like that? Does one has to be a contractor?

Sounds interesting, but also very daunting at the same time.

There will be a rude awakening when SOME of these newly built (in the last 15 - 20 years) residential towers require more financial input from their owners when it comes to maintenance - I'm already hearing stories of soaring maintenance costs that are a direct result of poor initial construction materials being used and even poor standards of workmanship.

I'm aware of one building that has its owners re-sealing and re-tiling all their balconies because of major water damage / leakage - at their own cost. We are taking about over 100 balconies!

I've said it before, but the best investment are your post and pre war walk-up apartments (less then 5 stories) that were built to last and not to a price. It makes sense when you hear overseas consortiums target such properties!

Turnpike Extension near Exit 14A seeing heavy westbound traffic

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal
on April 25, 2015 at 3:12 PM, updated April 25, 2015 at 3:21 PM

BAYONNE -- The New Jersey Turnpike Extension near Exit 14A is seeing heavy westbound traffic due to construction in the area, according to a Journal staff member driving near the roadway.

At around 11:10 a.m. today, the westbound Extension bridge had been backed up for at least two hours, staff reported.

According to 511nj.org, "necessary deck work" is taking place on "Westbound NJ Turnpike Hudson County Extension Interchanges 14A-14 (Bayonne-Newark)" through the weekend until 5 a.m. on Monday.

@bodhipooh: sorry for the late response. You're right - traditionally, "lucky" money is for unmarried people only. However, it can get very complicated very quickly:

- how about unmarried people who are over a certain age?
- how about people living together, but not officially married?
- how about single mothers / fathers (not married, but have kids out of wedlock)
- and on and on...

These can be sensitive discussion points in a chinese household during chinese new years

Jersey City is at a standstill. Rt 440 from Bayonne going towards Journal Square is bumper to bumper cars are not moving. Forget about trying to get in the Hudson Mall area the roundabout is blocked by gridlock.

Westside Avenue is at a standstill from Country Village going towards Journal Square same bumper to bumper mess. A solid line of cars from CV to JSq amazing and a solid line of traffic going down Communipaw from the Blvd to rt 440.

They are doing work on the TP Extension Bridge going West, it is one lane and also bumper to bumper. I guess people are cutting through JC to avoid the TP Extension.

Stay home or walk.

PS – NOT ONE COP IN SIGHT directing traffic.

hello - wondering if anyone could help point me towards any rules/ legislation about putting a pergola/arbor type thing in my back yard. We would like for it to be a nice wooden or metal structure that will block out the sun (and the view of our yard from the upstairs neighbors)

155 Morgan Street sold for a mere 2.2 million. And this address is just up the block from 88 Morgan. Only, this property was a building owned by Queen Latifah, the pop/movie - star/celebrity.

Seems that the sale price on this one was way too low. Like TWICE the sale price might have been too low.

I read it to mean that one penthouse represents 0.01% of the DTJC real estate, not the pool of potential buyers.

DTJC is in high demand, and there isn't much supply. Apparently, buyers are putting in bids on multiple properties, hoping that something will stick.

It's unlikely this is a bubble. I doubt that we're looking at any artificial conditions that only apply to DTJC. More likely is that prices will plateau at some point, and people who are priced out will look elsewhere.

It's possible the DT market is getting overheated just a little. According to what's probably Zillow's most accurate stat, large area markets, 07302 is 120% of 2 years ago. But the Heights or JS is more like 110%.

As for the penthouse, the prices of those kind of properties have no relation to reality. They can move 100% up or 50% down very easily depending on what foreign oligarchs are in the market for.

Re: Paterson, Jersey City and Newark plan to equip cops with body cameras

3 largest New Jersey cities pushing ahead with plans to outfit police with body cameras

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey — New Jersey's three largest cities are moving ahead with plans to outfit their police officers with body cameras, possibly as early as this fall.

The mayors of Newark, Jersey City and Paterson announced Friday that they have issued requests for proposals from vendors that are due back by May 14.

Last summer Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Paterson Mayor Jose Torres said they would collaborate on numerous public safety issues, including the purchasing of equipment in order to save money. The state Department of Community Affairs approved the joint purchasing plan in December which allows the cities to buy the cameras.

Jersey City Police Director James Shea said the city is in the process of formulating guidelines, in conjunction with the state attorney general's office, regarding when and how the cameras can be used and what footage can be saved. Shea said a primary issue is the cost of storing footage shot by the cameras.

"The bottom line is we know it's a good policy, we know citizens feel good about them and that it makes them feel good when police officers are using them," he said. "It's pretty much a win-win, the only question is how we're going to pay for it."

Since the announcement of the three cities' partnership last July, they have already embarked on public safety strategies such as police intelligence sharing.

@jmiz: I think you're missing my point: I don't think that 88 Morgan, the Trump building, is built for the 0.01% (and definitely the 0.1% won't be looking at the trump building). And Jersey City itself, is not for the 0.01% either. Hence, even for a penthouse, is $3.5mil outrages?

I also understand the law of demand and supply, and asking price vs purchase price. But the fact that someone *dared* to even list with such a price, what does that say of the people's mentality right now?

If you go take a look at trulia and zillow, there are some outrages prices listed in the market right now. Yes, the 88 Morgan penthouse is on the extreme side, however:
- I noted in my original post that there are several 3 bed units in 65 2nd street is in the $1.2+ million range. That's an old building to say the least (it was originally the rental tower, part of Avalon cove. My sister used to rent there 10+ yrs ago);

- there was a 1bed + den apartment in paulus hook that I checked out back in 2010 that was sold for $340K. It just came back on the market for $589K;

- there are several 1 bed units in Liberty harbor for sale that were asking / sold around $350k in 2010 are now back on the market for close to $500K (asking price);

and that's just a handful of examples. Look at the trulia listings: so many are now asking 30%, 40+% more than just 4-5 years ago.

Hence, is JC market currently a bubble?
