Re: Transformers - Hazardous?

Transformers to not emit microwaves. They are coils of copper wire wrapped around an iron core. They do give off an electromagnetic field, and nobody currently knows whether that's bad for you or not. Some studies say yes, some say no. (Thanks, studies)

Look up transformer emissions, transformer radiation, transformer emf. Exposure drops very quickly the further you get from the transformer, but it also matters how much current the transformer is carrying. How many feet would you estimate the transformers are from your living area?


I'd say they're within 10-15 feet of our living area. Using an iphone app, there is a noticeable increase in electromagnetic frequency as we get closer the transformer, which obviously makes sense, but is nonetheless concerning.

Transformers - Hazardous?
#32
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I've noticed transformers (cylinder like items) clustered on electric poles throughout Jersey City every 2-4 blocks. They are usually clustered in 2s or 3s. We have a cluster of 3 very close to the windows in our bedroom and family room. I never thought much of it until a visitor from out of town was shocked that these things were hanging so close to our building.

Should we be concerned about whatever these things are emitting (microwaves), especially since they're so close to our apartment?

I never thought much of them other than being an eyesore, but this visitor now has me concerned.

If anyone has any knowledge on these things, I'd be happy to hear it.

I have pictures, but I can't figure out how to post a pic in a message.

Not even score09 below who makes predictions with enviable certainty. Think about it this way, if he were really that good at the real estate price predictions, after all the volatility of the last decade, he'd be a multi-millionair right now.



What volatility? Jersey City real estate values are more than sixty percent higher than they were a decade ago. I know this because my property,purchased in '04, is currently on the market. Even accounting for the financial crisis of '08 and '09, there isn't much support for the notion that the Jersey City real estate market has been "volatile." Moreover, when you consider the incredible amount of capital investment infused in just the last few years alone, you'd be foolish not to be bullish on Jersey City real estate. Granted, you are correct in so much as no one knows with one hundred percent certainty as to what may befall the economy. But, the OP was worried and in the interest of allaying unwarranted fear, a bullish call was made.

One step further, I predict a doubling of market value over the next five to seven years for downtown Jersey City. It is essentially part of Manhattan now. Please tell me you live downtown because if you don't, you haven't a clue.


I agree. The writing is on the wall...or in your field of vision. Look to the right, left...there is a massive amount of development in DTJC and a general growth of interest that has only gained positive momentum. Barring another economic hiccup, the forecast for DTJC appears to be very good in the next 5-10 years.

Trump is a dump!!! I looked at a place in that building a few years back. Wasn't Trump formerly a rental? Have they even sold all the units? I remember 1-2 years ago seeing a sign on the building or somewhere (can't remember exactly) along the lines of 75% sold or something like that and i was thinking to myself why the hell has it taken them so long to sell all the units.

In my opinion, 77 Hudson is quite nice and all around a much better product than Trump, although I personally wouldn't spend the money they're asking.

I wish these bakeries baked things other than sweets, pastries, cakes, etc., like bread. I would patronize them on an almost daily basis if they made various types of bread. From a business perspective, i think it would be a no-brainer.

I would get a roofer. In my experience, a home inspector should not be the "end all" of a potential home buyer's diligence. The roof is extremely important, as you seem to understand. I would be as thorough as you can with the roof and even discuss options that go beyond the cursory visual review of the roof by the roofer. In other words, tell the roofer you're happy to pay more for more services in order to ensure that the roof is in the shape you need it to be in.

Don't be fooled by what you read this is still a dollar store crowd.




::raises hand::

There are still some of us who grew up here or around here, who don't want it to lose its diversity and character. I am all for certain kinds of change (safer streets, more interesting places to eat) but not others (rents so high only one demographic can afford to live here, Portlandia-type stuff like a juice bar on every corner).


What's the diversity that you're seeking to protect? I think it's important to define what you mean by diversity. From what I can tell, the newcomers to JC are exceptionally diverse...probably even moreso than those who've been here the last 20-30+ years. Not one of my dozen plus closest neighbors are the same in terms ethnic/cultural/religious background yet they're all a part of the gentrification wave.

In terms of "character" that's subjective and everyone is entitled to their opinion on what "character" they prefer.

I used it to go to Newark Airport last Sat and it cost me $28 one way via 1/9 from the Hamilton Park area. It will be more if they take the turnpike due to tolls. Not bad.


If u have a car and your trip is short look into Wally park or one of their competitors. Super cheap if u find a groupon and very efficient. Used it a month ago when I needed to be in Boston for 2 days.

All of what you just stated is 100% inaccurate. You're clearly an idiot. Ever watch New Girl? Probably not since it offends some aspect of your finely crafted sense of what's wrong and what's right about the world....BUT, there's a character named Schmidt on the show and every time he makes a douchebag statement he has to contribute money to a jar. There should be something like that for you on this board.

AND, BTW, i do not condone the St. Patty's day parade ban on homosexuals. I also have no plans of attending the parade.

About the lousiest analogy one can come up with. For that $50, one person is servicing me by removing my hair, which I've had done just fine for quite a bit less than that. I'm not going to get a better haircut no matter how much I spend.

On the other hand for $100, dinner for two, we're getting the services of waiter, busboy, host, bartender and others, and quality products that cost real money. Lets agree that physical space is equal in both situations, though quite frankly I'd argue that restaurants have a whole lot higher overhead costs. Oh and BTW, no hangover. I don't quite get the obsession with drinking. What I do get out of it, hopefully a great meal often trying things I've never eaten before. I really don't count the next day's toilet activity as part of my dinner out.

You are right, everyone has their own priorities. For me, admittedly mostly bald, I don't get spending more than $20 on a haircut, and I'm quite happy with my $12 haircut from someone who's been doing it probably close to 50 years. So happy that I probably do it twice a year whether I need it or not.


The first sentence of your closing argument is the only statement in your entire response worth sharing.


I would have to agree with that. One of the worst rebuttals I've read on this message board. Even though you didn't intend to do it, you basically fully reinforced the point the original poster conveyed. You're mostly bald - No sh*t that you don't want to spend more than $12 on a haircut!!!

one of the great advantages of bitcoin is that it is faster, easier, "less friction", less costly, etc. than currency for all parties involved. That's part of the attraction. Basically the complete opposite of what you're saying.

I hope the same. Anytime I go to Hoboken and walk around I'm amazed at how boring and uninteresting the place is despite the number of businesses and restaurants.
