Re: I am getting the heck out of Newport

The New York subway system can suffer from union strikes, water main breaks, tunnel fires, break downs, etc.

Where are you going to go? How will you know ahead of time that the next place will be better? What will you do different before you sign the lease?

I think you need to look at real estate in other areas of NJ and the country in general, prices are up everywhere. I was vacationing on Cape Cod this past summer and wa shocked that every TINY home in Provincetown was $1 million or more, 2 br condos were selling at $750,000 and up. Real estate is up everywhere, you can attribute it to multple factors, real estate bubble/speculation, low interest rates, poor performance in the stock market/mutual funds, growth in population. According to the census bureau the population of NYC since 9/11 has grown about 900.000 people. I don't know what the population growth in the surounding areas such as JC is.
Real estate has always been one of the best investments you can make.

The people that can afford these 400K-500K condos could be wise people who invested in real estate a few years back and sold their property, made a $150K profit and socled it as a down payment in a $400K place, so their payments are reasonable. They could be a married couple that makes two incomes that total 150-200K. There are many scenarios. People are buying In JC that usually wouldn't because they are priced out of Manhattan and want more space so they will sacrifice.

Who are the people on this board? Do they rent or own. Any homeowner in JC should be happy that prices are high. IT IS RAISING THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME. The more gentrified this city becomes, it will help you out!

Who are the people who Couldn't afford a 400K apartment? What do you do for a living that has made you satisfied being able to afford less?

Do you actually know what supply and demand is, or an economic bubble is, or do you think that because you watch CNN, you are some expert in economics?


I have always wondered who are the people who acutally can afford to buy these properties.. Even with the 'low interest rates' hype, you still need to pay condo fees, real estate taxes, PMI with less than 10% down, insurance etc....
Only a small percentage of people in Jersey City & in the NYC metro area work on wall street which really is the only industry that pays salaries which enables one to buy a home in this area...

Sorry, but Jersey City is not a place that justifies a $3,000 - $4,000 a month PITI payment on a $400,000 - $500,000 condo...

Jersey City is about 10 years away from being anything close to resembling any of those neighborhoods in Brooklyn.


Maybe, but all of the real estate speculation that is taking place will ensure that rents in Jersey City will be comparable to (if not the same as) rents in Brooklyn Heights/Park Slope, except without the "trendy" factor that those neighborhoods have.

There is no place in Jersey City (especially Newport) that justifies the ridiculous rents & prices that are being charged.

$1,900 for a one bedroom in Newport???

$400,000 for a one bedroom condo in the downtown 'historic district' where there is much more crime than anywhere in the NYC 5 boros (unless you can pay $800,000 to live on the waterfront)???? Laughable.....

We are definately in a housing bubble where people are paying the most ridiculous prices for utter crap & treat these used car dealer real estate agents like gifts from god...

Newport is shit. Somehow I think it's better than LeFrek City in Queens though... (which is part of NYC) but don't bundle the rest of Jersey in with that crap-hole.

I made the big mistake of moving from Manhattan to Newport, thinking hey, it's a souless ditch, but at least I get a "luxury" apartment that faces the Hudson and Manhattan on a high floor (29th), and it's only one stop on the PATH.

F**k. Sure, the view is nice, but the "luxury" buildings here are actually made from ricepaper glued together, so you can hear everything within a 10 apartment radius. They are so badly insulated, people expect to pay between $300-500 a month in heating bills over the winter.

The apartment buildings, even though they are new, are roach infested. They are all owned by one guy (Richard LeFrak) who is a slumlord and a complete piece of s**t. He only allows his telephone company in the apartments, and the only cable TV you can get is a sh***ty 80's style RCN service, because of a deal made by him and them which scored him lots of extra $$$. If you want "broadband" (remember, these are "luxury" apartments full of about 70,000 "professionals") - think again, you can only have LeFrak's "shared T1" line, which he markets as a T1 connection but in fact is thousands of people piggybacked on a T3 line. So it's worse than dial-up most of the time. Management here is s**t, they won't do anything for you.

The maintenance staff & mgmt has got to be the most incompetant, rudest, indifferent bunch of dolts I have ever encountered. I certainly will not pay over $2,000 a month in rent to be treated like crap.

But it's not just Newport, I get the feeling the whole of New Jersey is inflicted by some disease which makes everything crap, everyone incompetant and makes every politician and official as corrupt as it's possible to get. And riding the PATH train home (I like to say that without the "T"), I just get the feeling of inferior people. Sorry, that's how it looks. The f**king PATH train. Slow (trains stop in tunnels about 10 times between Jersey and Manhattan), bad design (no trash cans anywhere on the platforms, very few seats, few elevators for disabled people and the one at 33rd st, one of only 2 in Manhattan, is out of service until early 2005!! How incompetant can you get?), and what's more, you can't get an unlimited use card. How s***ty is that?

I think Jersey also has worse pollution than New York, strangely enough. It's stinky and ever since I moved here I've been ill regularly, have lots of headaches and I feel dizzy as soon as I get off the PATH train.

Yep, if you ever feel like you're taking New York forgranted, move to Jersey for a while - you'll be so #OOPS#ing thankful when you move back.

You must be new to Jersey City. If you're not new, then you're totally friggin' oblivious. Point to ONE commissioner who will be open to grievances and complaints. People have tried that, and it is to no avail.

I have been reading the nonsense on this site for sometime. It is interesting to me that there are so many anonymous complaints, comments, rumours or just plain lies about Dan and the Historic Preservation Commission.
Both are on display and available, once each month at the public commission hearing. I went to the meeting this past week to see how many "anonymous" people would show up and speak in public during the "public comment" part of the meeting, about all the "concerns" in the community.
When the Chairman called for comments during the public portion of the meeting..NOT ONE PERSON IN THE COMMUNITY SPOKE UP, AS A MATTER OF FACT THERE WERE NO MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY WHO EVEN BOTHERED TO SHOW UP AT THE MEETING. The only people present were there as part of their legitimate applications.
My Father once said "actions speak louder than words."
IF ANYONE TRULY WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE OR HAS A COMPLAINT..YOU CAN SHOW UP AT THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION HEARING, ONCE A MONTH, AND TELL EVERYONE 'ON THE RECORD" in front of a newpaper reporter what your problems are. I AM SURE THAT EACH AND EVERYONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS WILL LISTEN TO YOUR COMPLAINT AND/OR CONCERN. SIMPLY WRITING ANONYMOUS COMMENTS ON THIS WEB SITE DON'T HELP.

Your comments are absurd and unfounded. The vast majority of complaints are well grounded and from individual home owners. Pointing out Warren Curtin is your thinly veiled attempt to distract attention from the problems in both the adminstration and the pathetic Historic Perservation committe which is made up of a bunch of unqualified facists.

There are many new homeowners in the neighborhood who are young and wealthy and who I anticipate start usurping authority from the current regime.

We need a changes that make the neighborhood friendly and enjoyable.

He has let the original issues and problems become totally lost in a sea of Gay Bashing, which he weakly denies, but has continued to condone an encourage.

It is a witch hunt by a self appointed group of Nazi Storm Troopers... no different than if he was calling for the extermination of Jews or Blacks or Gypsies...

No matter what Dan may have done... Warren and the others in this thread deserve to have their asses hauled into court and sued for defamation.

"No matter what Dan may have done" is going to get the city sued it they don't knock this shit off.


You don't even know wat he has done, as many are afraid to give the details. They would identify them. I am sure the city could be sued.

Yeah OK, ElVee. Don't be a hero or we might see, "Anonymous vs. ElVee, the famous, well known internet poster person from jclist.com". Get real.

When this thread was posted, I was the first to complain about the gay baiting- It's unhelpful. I don't see that as sticking up for Dan. I do however have a problem with cheap shots, which going after the guy because of who he sleeps with is.

There clearly is an issue here. Forget about JC list. I have spoken to folks I know personally who have had run ins with this guy. You hear something once, take it with a grain of salt. Twice, start listening. 3 times, houston, we have a problem.

Don't forget your lawsuit threatening paisan is anonymous as well, so their utter ignorance of law, on display for the entire world to see, doesn't land at their front door either. I do hope that they have figured out that watching Boston Legal is not the way to learn to file your lawsuits.
