It is valid through the end of November. They should send you a renewal application at the beginning of November.

Re: Who here really, really hates Comcast?

Home away from home


I guess it depends on location. I have been using Comcast internet for 3 years and always get fast, reliable service. Service has only gone out maybe 2 or 3 times that I can remember and it was quickly restored each time. I tried DSL to save a bit of money and it was horrible. It was tremendously slow and most of the time I could barely get a connection.

You have a choice. Satellite TV. I switched to Directv over 2 years ago and never looked back. Cheaper service, more channels, more reliable equipment, and more HD than Comcast. I would never go back.

Worse case, for example a couple of years ago a woman was raped in an apartment block close to Hamilton Pk. The rapist climbed through an unsecured first floor window.

Yeah that was at The Lincoln building at 10th & Manila. Although I think there was some controversy surrounding that situation that the resident made up the crime. Not sure what ever came of it.

I thought you could bring electronics for recycling to the JCIA headquarters on Rte 440? It might be worth calling to find out. Have you considered donating the computer?

Re: Security in Rental

Another thing I just thought of. I know the people who live on the ground floor of my building have had a lot of problems with mice and some other bugs, while I have had no problems living on the top floor of the same building. They have also had some flooding issues as others have pointed out. Just some things to keep in mind. Personally I wouldn't rent a ground floor unit.

If it was me I would prefer not to have bars on the windows - those things will only trap you if there is a fire inside the building.

The old St. Francis hospital was 8 or 9 stories, why would height all of a sudden be an issue for the LOTP complex?

I live in the area of 9th and Manila and walk past the area in question very frequently. That lot seems pretty small, with the school to the west and the townhouses to the east. If there really is a problem with chromium there, wouldn't that also be affecting the school and townhouses? I don't see how they could have built the school and the townhouses without cleaning up that whole block.

I have seen a lot of towing lately in the parking lot by Modell's and Staples. Last time I walked through there I saw a tow truck just driving up and down the rows repeatedly waiting to strike.

I find it amazing that people leave stuff in sight in their cars

Cars still get broken into whether stuff is left out or not. I witnessed a guy breaking into an SUV last summer. It was the middle of the night and the car windows were tinted, so unless this guy was wearing night vision goggles he didn't break in because he saw something inside.

Last night at 12:40, the car parked in front of our house was broken into on the passenger side. My husband heard it, looked out and saw a tall black man in a gray coat on foot reaching in through the window. I called 911 (I thought b/c it was in progress) and they referred me to non-emergency number. So - the nonemergency number took the info and the police were in front within five minutes. While I don't think they caught the guy, the response was fast. I think we heard the owner's GPS was stolen.

What street?

If there have actually been 8-10 assaults and 10-12 car break-ins all summer (as suggested in Ian's list), that actually would seem not out of the ordinary for an urban area to me. I am sure there's more, though.


I was thinking the same thing. The stats don't really seem that bad. Considering the size of the city and it's close proximity to other large urban areas like NYC and Newark, and downtown's close proximity to public housing projects (Montgomery Gardens, Holland Gardens) I would say we are doing relatively well.

Re: Oceans rising: move to high ground?

The same thing happens every time - the government only acts after a crisis occurs - terrorism, Katrina, bridge collapse. My point is, don't expect the federal government or the city to do anything until after a major flooding event or sea rise occurs.

Re: So much for all of you folks who predicted a JC/NYC RE Crash
Home away from home
Home away from home


This is such a futile argument. People only believe what they want to hear. So if you currently own a home you are going to believe all the articles that the housing bubble is not nearly as bad as it seems and you are going to be rich. If you don't own a home you are going to believe everything about the market crashing and therefore your paying rent is more justifiable.

Condos/apartments in NYC are much more limited and thus prices will be driven up. Here in downtown JC there will be thousands of new apartments/condos opening in the next couple years...Grove Pointe, Trump, Shore Club just to name a few. With more options to choose from people are not going to be willing to buy on a whim. Didn't Trump back off on building a second tower due to lack of potential buyers?

That kind of thing happens everywhere though. I live right next to a school and the garbage truck comes by twice a week at about 4am to service the dumpsters. Wakes me up every time.

If you mean Rutgers alums, it's been like that for a few years at least. When I graduated in '02, JC, Brooklyn and Philly were pretty much the three places to go.


I still think a lot more graduates move to Hoboken over JC though.

Re: gas grill illegal on raised back deck?

From my back deck I can count at least 5 gas grills on my side of the block alone. Illegal or not, I would think this is something you could get away with fairly easily.
