It is much easier to get around NYC without a car than it is in JC and amenities in general are more accessable. Notwithstanding, most people I know with kids in NYC still have a car. NYC also has plenty of parking garages around the City, so long as you are wiling to pay.

If we want JC to be a city of single or childless people, then certainly go car free. But families will continue to move out because it is family unfriendly. Families make good neighbors - they raise property values, keep their properties looking nice, provide long term stability, take pride in their neighborhood and volunteer, support local business to a greater degree, and work to make the City a better place to live because they have such a vested interest in doing so. We do need to balance the needs of all people that live in JC.

FYI: Families don't rent micro units, which is what this thread is about. The people that rent micro units are single, young people that, according to every single study performed, are abandoning their car in increasing fashion.

The reality is that there should be a lower dependence on the automobile. This isn't to say that families can't have a car, but if they do, they can pay for it just like other people that live in urban environments.

Building more ugly parking garages that will go half empty is not the way to move this city forward. Pretending that the automobile is how everyone will transport themselves in the future is also backwards thinking.

I am not sure how widely it is available yet, but there is a lasik alternative. In lieu of shaving the cornea, a permanent contact lens is implanted.


The advantage is the lens can be removed if there is a problem or changed out at a later date should the prescription need to be adjusted.

http://benefits.visianinfo.com/visian ... L-98e_E2sICFURo7AodXUIA3Q

I can't get lasik, but have been looking into alternatives every now and then. I am basically blind without my glasses on. However, I can see small print up close with no problems.

Parking has always been available in JC until developers who also receive abatements build mega buildings without adequate parking. The burden should not be placed on long term residents, it belongs on developers to provide for parking. St. Johns in Journal Square did not impose on their neighbors, they provided parking and even the Gregory now called Metro also provided for parking. It is just greed by developers who realize less parking means more revenue. Don't give me that garbage to go to the suburbs. Let the developers follow the same path as St. Johns and the Gregory. If you want a city without parking move to Manhattan, I was here first.

That is funny. The idea that you should be entitled to anything at all simply because you were born before me is about as absurd a thought as humanly possible.

Cities change. Cities evolve. Residents change. Just because you were in a location for a period of time does not mean you are entitled to remain there with all the same luxuries that you had before. You need to take a seriously hard look in the mirror that the only thing you are entitled to is somewhere between jack and squat and squat left town.

I am very, very surprised that this section of JC is not on people's radar. As User1111 points out, it is a 15 minute walk to DTJC, and about 5-10 minutes by light rail to Grove or Paulus Hook (depending on how much you have to walk to/from the light rail stations) and 15 to 20 for the Newport and Harsimus Cove stops. Not instant, or super quick, but decent times. I have never seen any smashed windows on cars around the neighborhood, and have only heard of two stolen cars over the past five years. Other than the unfortunate homicide at the light rail station a few years ago (mentally unstable man went off his meds, the state couldn't or wouldn't commit him despite his parents' pleas, and one morning he walked out and stabbed a man to death at the station) you don't really hear or see any violent crime in the immediate area of the LSP light rail station. Further West, there have been some more serious incidents (the Whiton street "execution", and some other shootings) but the area is definitely up and coming and more and more young professionals can be seen in the neighborhood. There is a very active Nextdoor.com community (thanks Nemobeatz!) and I have always felt safe there.


I'll add a third vote for this area. The place is bolstered by the quality of the individuals that are moving in. Should Whitlock Cordage every complete, I can see a larger influx that pushes this section even higher.

Additionally, the OP mentioned running. It would be a straight shot down into Liberty State Park, which could then have them shoot over the walking bridge and into downtown.


You are right! I should have added that running in this area is about the BEST in all of JC. From the area immediately adjacent to the LSP light rail station, it is a quick jog into the park. Once in the park, there are several routes that will satisfy anyone's needs. The longest route that keeps you within the park boundaries is 5.5 miles (I tend to call this the outer loop route) and there are many other ways you can add or subtract distance to meet your distance goals. The park is safe and has seen increased use over the years. There would be times I felt like I had the park to myself in years past when running at certain times. Nowadays, I haven't had a run at ANY time that didn't include seeing at least two or thee other people, even in colder weather. Super happy to see the park reaching its potential.

FYI I just did a quick search for rentals in the Heights, JSQ and LSP area and the LSP area is pricier than the other two areas. LSP came in with an average rental costing 1,400 a month for a two bedroom and the Heights average for 2 bedroom was 900.00 and the Square is 1250.00. So if $$$ is your concern the Heights looks like a better fit, but if you add in all the buses and jitneys its almost priced the same as the square.

Mine was $4K in 2009. If I was smart and planned ahead, I could have had it taken out of my paycheck pre-tax and put into an HSA, and saved quite a bit. But, once I had gotten up the nerve, I decided to just go ahead and do it.

I also have the guarantee that they will do "touch up" surgery should I need it, but 5 1/2 years later, I haven't had the occasion to take them up on the offer.

There are places that advertise incredible deals ($500 per eye!), but I did not research what they offer for the price.

I do remember researching which machine each place used, and making my decision based on the machine, and also how comfortable I felt with the place.

I also had to decide between an initial flap cut via laser or mechanical blade, and I opted for mechanical, because it would heal faster and better.

It's been a few years, so the technology may have changed for the better, even.

Diane Coleman to head Jersey City committee studying exclusion of minorities from commerce

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on December 22, 2014 at 12:31 PM

City Councilwoman Diane Coleman will chair a committee to determine the best ways to implement the recommendations of a study that found a paucity of minority-owned businesses winning contracts with the city.

Coleman will join fellow council members Joyce Watterman and Daniel Rivera on the 13-member committee, formed to examine a disparity report, also known as a Croson study, that analyzed city procurement trends and practices from 2002 through 2008.

The study found few businesses owned by minority women won city contracts and that developers awarded tax breaks were not hiring minority- or women-owned businesses. The disparity had a "negative effect on the earnings of African-American, Hispanic and other minority firms," the study found.

chokehold, strangleholds or SUBMISSION HOLDS - Submission holds are taught at the police academy

Wrestling holds include a number of moves used by competitors to immobilize their opponents or lead to a submission. Also known as stretches (or submission holds), these techniques are employed to weaken an opponent or to force him or her to submit, either vocally or by tapping out: slapping the mat, floor, or opponent with a free hand three times. Moves are listed under general categories whenever possible.

They should not be attempted without proper training and supervision, as there is significant risk of serious injury.


I wrestled at school and was quite good at it, however I never wrestled an obese opponent with any heart or health issues.

Once again, this dude was not willing to be arrested and comply with a lawful command. What's the point of having a police force if everyone was simply allowed to say, 'you're not arresting me today, so get lost I'm doing what I want'!


How about "You are resisting arrest, please comply immediately or I will have to use force"

instead of let's reply to this verbal resistance of arrest with a chokehold.

If that is the response to a verbal resistance of arrest than every person should be arrested this way if they are verbally saying that want to be left alone. You and I know, that is not the case.

I think JS would be a better location mainly because of the transportation options. There is not much now in the way of nice restaurants and interesting stores but in a few years there will be. No matter where you move to as a renter you will eventually be priced out of that neighborhood.

For anyone that has undergone LASIK surgery, can you elaborate on pricing/costs? I have considered doing it for a while now, but never felt the urge. The one thing I have heard and read from so many people is that their only regret is not having it done EARLIER. I believe total cost is anywhere from 2K to 5K (of course, I understand every person is different!) but I am curious as to what some locals have paid, as I am actually leaning towards getting it done this year.

If you are holding up Newark as a poster child to be emulated, you have gone off the deep end. If anything, I would argue we want to do the exact opposite of ANYTHING they do in Newark. Their track record (crime, growth, etc) is miserable.

As for the article, it seems like bike lanes were placed where NO ONE was using them so it might make sense to remove them. But, bike lanes and other traffic calming measures can and do improve conditions FOR EVERYONE. We should be implementing some more of those measures here in JC. Traffic is simply a mess, with careless and aggressive drivers and clueless pedestrians that exarcerbate the situation.

Jersey City among worst cities in America for singles, study says
#46
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Janelle Griffith | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

If you find yourself standing solo under the mistletoe this holiday season, you might not be to blame, especially if you live in Jersey City.

A new study has found New Jersey's second largest city is among the worst for singles in the United States.

WalletHub.com, a personal finance website, ranked the 150 most populated cities in the U.S. for those seeking "the right partner."

The website considered such metrics as the percentage of singles, restaurant meal costs and the number of attractions per capita in each location.

"The city one calls home dictates such important factors as the number of prospective partners, diversity of dating activities and costs of going out," the report states.

According to WalletHub.com, Jersey City and New York rank Nos. 144 and 145 respectively. (If you're willing to move, Boise, Idaho, Madison, Wisconsin, and Denver, Colorado are the top three cities for singles).

I think that a lot of people are unaware that the Congress St. elevator puts one in Hoboken immediately.
In fact, when the doors open, you are literally on the lite rail platform.

I think that the best thing to do is to investigate all transportation options available in the Heights.

I've worked in NYC downtown and uptown and never had the problems with time that I hear people
refer to. I am beginning to think that people just don't know what the options are and are giving
advice based on that lack of knowledge.

Re: Journal Square Vs. JC Heights

I have a few questions for you first:
- are you renting or considering buying?
- are you looking for an artsier, urban "scene" when you go out?
- are you comfortable with a 20 to 30 minute walk to the PATH train every day?

I live in the Heights, work by City Hall in Manhattan, and my social life is in Manhattan. The lack of easy access to PATH is a real drawback, which I urge you to consider. Getting to work is 1 hour minimum, most of the wasted time because of bus delays to the PATH and/or the bus sitting in traffic. Saturday I was meeting a friend in Chelsea and it took me 1 hour and 15 minutes, because the 87 bus was 1/2 hour late (they run every 30 minutes to Hoboken on weekends).

Hoboken, in my experience, has a much more suburban vibe than DTJC, and I'll go into Manhattan instead any day. There is only 1 bus to DTJC, the 86 which runs along Palisade Avenue to Newport Mall via Grove Street. It's usually on time, but stops running at 9:20pm, so getting to DTJC from the Heights is really limited. Some people take the jitneys, I can't stand them.

Finally, while rents are decent in the Heights, the area is over-saturated with undeveloped condominiums, and many condos are rented out - I bought my 'mini loft' in 2008, and it has never recovered it's value.

Personally, I would love to see new faces - especially people from DTJC who expect to see some real city amenities in the Heights - new restaurants, etc., but IMO the lack of mass transit options really, really kills the Heights.

I guess that everyone's experience is very unique and you'll find a lot of opinions either way.

I lived in both areas - and I really liked (it even surprised me) Journal Square. Little India and the attached Philippine shopping district are great for fresh produce; I could walk to Journal Square for anything else I needed; and the PATH train was a seven minute walk from my home.

While I had several bad experiences in the Heights in terms of safety (there were gangs, drugs, break-ins, prostitution, car damage - and a murder one block from my home), I had zero in Journal Square. I just felt safer there. When I moved in to the Heights in 2000, my realtor gushed it was "up and coming." It never happened when I was there.

Journal Square is finally being developed so I would think it would be a good time to invest there. Just make sure you buy something with parking included!
