"Get over yourself, JC"? These are market forces. Also, renters may not care much about the reval but that will only increase prices. It may be happening right now.

And I'm sure a broker would be able to find you 30 more. That's 60 places for under $2,000 that took less than five minutes to locate.

The disconnect between the real Jersey City and the dystopian nightmare many JCListers live in is terrifying. And sad.


...and less than another five minutes to see that many of those in your trulia link require a month broker fee (which as you know, cause you're smart, could easily put a place out of someones price range) or are actually a single room for rent in someone else's ap, maybe two rooms in someone else's duplex. Plus the ones in paulus hook towers are low income.

It sucks. for many people.
It must be nice to live in your Utopian world where DTJC is being whitewashed. Dont worry, you'll have your own little "Plesantville" soon enough.

‘The Market Is Saturated’: Brooklyn’s Rental Boom May Turn Into a Glut.

I think JC will follow Brooklyn with all the construction of new housing all over JC.

Chicago has seen its murder toll skyrocket this year. The nation's third-largest city has recorded more homicides than New York and Los Angeles combined in 2016. Homicides were up nearly 50% for the first half of 2016 compared to the same period last year. Police have also already recovered 6,000 illegally possessed guns off the streets of Chicago this year.

Chicago Police say the vast majority of victims and assailants are on its Strategic Subject List, a predictive roster that the department generates by crunching arrest information, gang affiliation, shooting patterns and other data. The list includes about 1,400 individuals.

So you're saying that other cities with strict gun control laws imposed by liberal mayors also have problems? I, for one, am shocked! Shocked I say!


Maybe guns aren't the problem. Maybe the problem is with the certain demographic that always seems to be caught firing them at others. Nah, too simple, couldn't be. Ban all guns!


Why do you think that demographic is using guns illegally?

I feel that rental prices are pretty in line with where they should be; maybe a little inflated which is why there is so much construction.

Condo/home prices are completely inflated, due to low inventory and high demand. Prices should come down with increased inventory, and if there is a tax reval we should see asking prices reduced significantly.

Finding the listings is easy, sifting through to finding which of them are actual real live apartments you can rent is entirely another.

Tough to find the real deal that meets your list of requirements.

I was close a month ago, but they decided to renovate and pulled it off the market before I could sign. Dang.

I'm curious about this myself. Especially with the new J-Square high-rises going up, it will interesting to see how they compare to the ones downtown in terms of price and vacancy.

At least one group of new high rises seem to be doing well though. I delivered something to Cast Iron the other day and upon asking, the concierge told me since they opened in March they are already close to 80% capacity.

I imagine the 2 new ones going up now are expecting equal demand. Prices start in the upper 2k range and go beyond 5k pending the room. I overheard in the lobby they have a $50 per pet fee per month which surprised me...sort of.

I would think that the meters would help businesses - it cuts down on people parking there for the night and leaving their cars there right after work (or paying for the 1 hr from 5-6 pm and then leaving it till 8 am)

if you are suggesting that having to pay for metered parking (which is usually about $0.25/15 min so about $2 for a normal 2 hour dinner) would discourage people from going to a restaurant then I think that you don't give the restaurants much credit.... I can't imagine going someplace for dinner and seeing a meter and saying oh I guess I will just go to burger king instead since it has parking and I don't want to pay the $2 for a meter.

As a monthly parking spot renter, I can tell you it's slim pickings around here. Find one and hold onto it tight! Oh, and be prepared to pay $250+/mo.

I am in a decent apartment on Jersey Ave in DTJC and just recently started poking around for a new apartment.

Rental prices in DT are rivaling Brooklyn, it's out of control. $2000+ for a studio?!? Get over yourself, JC.

There seems to be tons of vacancy in these new "luxury" buildings too. Is the bottom going to drop out and the bubble burst, or is JC destined to have Brooklyn prices?

It would nice if we could reciprocate the community spirit by organizing a ' bbq party' to celebrate Muslims and ALL faiths into our community. If the Muslim community can reach out, then we should too with some funds from cityhall!

Restaurants don't own street parking, nor does any small or large business - The balancing act for city hall is to time restrict the area so ALL businesses benefit (including any visitor to a resident living above a business) a frequent change-over of motorists and not just the clients that might sit in a restaurant for a few hours at the cost of others.

If dumb-ass businesses aren't aware of parking restrictions to an area before starting a business, then they haven't prepared their business plan or done due diligence correctly and shouldn't whine about parking ... imagine if McD's or KFC relied on street parking?
If the Coach House is whining about parking then I'm betting they are struggling financially and looking for excuses and not at their own poor business practices !

That's nice. I think more outreach programs, especially things like barbecues or other events open to the public would be helpful for the Islamic community, not only to be more accepted by their neighbors, but also to integrate young men who may be at risk of radicalization. Reminds me of going to a seder that a Jewish student group was hosting, and over half of the attendees were Muslims that were genuinely interested in learning. It was very nice.

The idea behind parking meters I believe, was to teach motorists how to share - Some motorist struggle with the concept of sharing a parking bay, so timed restrictions had to be put in place to force sharing ... the money side of it, is revenue

Meters HELP businesses, not hurt them. It keeps residents from long term parking in those spots after at and allows for more space turnover for business customers to utilize.

Time will tell if it's enough - but can't claim they've done nothing since Sandy.


They're not doing my street. Someone at the MUA claimed it was fine in their survey, even though when the MUA ran a cam down it 18 years ago they reported a 18" diameter brick sewer filled with longitudinal and offset cracks.


Looks like they are digging up Grand St. between Grove and Marin this week. Does anyone know if this is sewer related? God knows, that block is one of the worst for flooding.
