Re: Wood floor sanding and varnishing

Home away from home


i mean install prefinished hardwood floors engineered or regular.

your points are valid, it's up to the individual, just giving my experience.

Our upstairs floors were badly damaged so we decided to replace them with engineered wood floor ~700 sqf, and the whole thing was done in 2 days after delivery with very little odor or issues.

So just comparing to the downstairs refinish, we definitely just going to replace going forward, unless like what the previous poster said you got some 1850 special wood floors etc..

It IS definitely a fantasy until breaking ground. please..those plots of land around there has been sitting vacant for decades even during the mega real estate booms in 07 and now.

Even with the golf course next door, port liberte (another disaster), and lsc very close, noone wants to touch those lands because of the location and access to....well nothing.

it's a gift someone is willing to develop it and even build school and public space on it. Just giving it away for free to build high density "cookie cutter" condo/rentals there is much better than what it is now...

Looking for a contractor to do wooden floor (sanding and refinishing), painting and a little bit of electrical work (add wiring for and ceiling fan to a room). Need someone who has experience working in condo buildings in downtown JC and has the required contractor insurance.


unless you have some very special wood, dont do it. I just had it done and the chemical is so bad 10x worse than paint, my neighbor called the fire dept. I had the whole place vented afterwards with homedepot blow fans to create a vacuum for over 4 weeks now and the smell is still there. And from my understanding those are very harmful to you inhaled.

It's absolutely NOT worth it to resand and refinish, instead just get new floor installed. The cost is really not that much higher and you dont have to deal with the chemicals. I hired a very experienced contractor but this is the process no way around it.

They have the new water based whatever refinish coating now but my contractor said those dont last and end up looking bad - he has no reason to lie to me as i am paying for all material.

if i had to do it over again i definitely would just have new floors installed, cost may $1500 more for builder grade bruce brand level engineered or hardwood for a 700 sqf.

all you whiners forget this is swamp land sitting in the ghetto of jersey city.

you are in fantasy land if you think some developer will come buy this land even to build "cookie cutter" condos or rentals. There are so much vacant lots in the ghettos of jersey city outside of downtown and journal square area, the city couldnt give them away if wanted to for development.

this will transform a blight pocket of land into a nice thing while providing benefits such as the school back to the city.

all you people do is whine and whine whenever there is ANY development going on anywhere in jersey city, be it downtown, jsq, or in the ghettos. I am glad none of you are running jersey city, otherwise the entire city will still be an abandoned warehouse/factory dump

Re: Amazon US Post office delivery issues
#36
Home away from home
Home away from home


USPS is the worst

1) Their tracking is never updated real time, sometime it shows up days after they pick up the package, sometime nothing until it is actually delivered.

2) They lose and delay packages all the time, i had packages with no tracking info for 2 weeks, then after i refunded the customer, it shows up on tracking as accepted in PA (i dropped off in jersey city). Had packages going in a loop between different NJ hubs for weeks until it is finally sent to destination, etc..

3) They dont care - the 2 lady in the montgomery post office act like they are doing you the biggest favor by taking your package. There are lines going all the way to the door and they would talk and chat with each other and few people they know and do everything in sloth pace like in zootopia. You can also see there are bunch people in the back laughing talking and doing nothing, but none would come try to open another window to assist.

They would also randomly pick on people, more than once they tell me my box is too big and i need to open everything up and repackage it in a different box and i had to educate them on what girth measurement actually means, had to get the manager more than once to override those idiots and confirm my boxes are within size limit.

I see them pick on other people all the time, mostly young people and asians, forcing them to repackage boxes that they didnt need to.

It's no wonder they are losing billions, those people dont care one bit, they know they cant lose their jobs. UPS/Fedex also messes up but at least their customer service care enough to try to fix the issue right away and are competent and somewhat efficient.

help - what is ALTERNA TAX CERTIFICATE for property tax payment
#37
Home away from home
Home away from home


Hi guys need some help deciphering the jersey city tax collector website.

Every quarter i goto the JC tax collector website to pay my property tax online via check, and once paid the "Paid By" column says E-CHECK.

Now for my most recent 11/2/2016 payment, from my checking account it said the money was paid, yet on jersey city tax collector website for my property the "Paid By" column has "ALTERNA TAX CERTIFICATE" instead of E-CHECK.

I googled alterna tax, it seems to be some kind of lien company that specializes on delinquent payments.

Can someone help or know what this means? i want to get some ideas before calling the jersey city tax collector office, as you guys know they are very impatient and won't explain anything so want to go in with some understanding what's going on.

Thanks

Re: Trump Our New President

definitely a historical upset.

dems so massively miscalculated their base. If it was bernie instead vs trump, most likely bernie will win. Since they both represent the same base for those swing voters in the middle. But faced with a choice of hillary vs trump, and 8 years of obama fatigue. The middle has no choice but to capitulate to trump.

he will either be a great president that actually get things done, or one of the worst president in history. There is no middle ground for trump.

scammer walking up/down montgomery
#40
Home away from home
Home away from home


Hi, has anyone have experience with a scammer recently that walks up and down montgomery from the waterfront to grove path?

He has a fake story about just moving here from LA or some place, got lost and need money for ticket home.

He came up to me at least 5 or more times so far over the last 2-3 weeks repeating the same story, without realizing i am the same person (guess i am pretty forgettable). My wife also got harassed by him and said he was pretty forceful when asking for money.

The dude is late 20s/early 30s, african american, very muscular (like a body builder), average height ~5'11" and always wore a t-shirt when he came up to me.

Looks like he does this almost daily during lunch hour since i encountered him so many times.

Can police help here? or it's not considered a crime to lie to scam money.

Thanks

Is this a sign of a large infestation? Who do you report this to at the city?

The property manager wouldn't authorize the staff to take immediate action so we need to wait until tomorrow for pest control to come. Pretty gross especially for the price that we pay in rent.


but what do you really expect moving into a 100 year old abandoned warehouse? this is not new construction, there are probably all sorts of nasty insects and vermins there before they renovated, only logical some are left behind.

Just be a good neighbor and make peace with it, or move out.

Re: Anyone playing Pokemon Go?

pokemon go will bring world peace. Everyone will be too busy catching pokemons to get into wars and fights :)

I was at the waterfront by the paulus hook ferry which has become a hot spot for pokemon go fans since there are 3 pokestops next to each other and always loaded with lure module.

There were at least 2 dozen people hanging out there chatting and catching pokemons.

I also noticed i started walking at least 3-5 miles a day now, including my family members too trying to catch pokemon.

Game is revolutionary - a disruptor due to the clever way of incorporating real world aspects and scale into a virtual reality around a well known loved brand.

You can bet your little butts walmart, starbucks, every single restaurant and shops are all calling nintendo looking to pay them to have a pokestop or gym installed in their locations to drive foot traffic. That's where they will make the real profit, although i am sure the in app purchase are nothing to sneezy at. Nintendo stock is up 35% in 1 day.

They just need to fix the servers so it doesn't keep crashing.

Just started today, it's so addicting. I have hit almost all of the pokestops by the waterfront area. I see at least dozens of people walking around with the phone playing the same game lol.

For those playing, lets share the locations of the rare pokemons.

Oh yeah go blue team! :D

Anyone know where those geese go during the winter?

i always see a few flocks during spring/summer time like right now with a bunch of small babies walking around in newport. They are pretty cute. Then by fall/winter, they are all gone.

Although i can also see the argument from other side, as they do poop everywhere, especially the waterfront walkway. It was like playing frogger trying to avoid the poops - and let me tell you it's not fun stepping on fresh geese poop, it's very slippery.

I dont think gas and wasting them is the solution though, if we have no other choice but to kill them, why not give them to the local restaurants as food source?

Uh, yeah, I don't exactly see a "drop dead" in there. I see Degnan sniping at Fulop, who is already suing and bashing PA.

PA is obviously taking a lot of steps to expand both PATH service and Hudson crossings. These just aren't the kinds of things that can happen overnight -- especially when a now-absent governor killed a major tunnel project, and redirected those funds to projects that had nothing to do with PA.



Yes, postponing the tunnel will save NJ taxpayers billions of dollars, since the new project is equally shared between NY, NJ, and the Feds-with the added bonus that the money 'redirected' went to fix the Pulaski Skyway-which directly benefits Jersey City, which it traverses.

Please, spare us such utter bull.

Christie INCREASED the costs for EVERYONE when he killed the ARC. He didn't bother to talk to anyone about costs, he didn't try to negotiate, he just killed it because he wanted to build his conservative bona fides... for an election where he belly flopped.

And no, there is no excuse WHATSOEVER for redirecting funds to the Pulaski. No matter how badly it needed it, no matter how much I support fixing it, it was improperly funded and in a way that burned Christie with Congress for years.

You do realize that you're the last person in NJ who actually thinks Christie has done a tolerable job as gov, right?


well said, agree.

yeah this always confused me as well. I walk to work so dont have to deal with the weekday path (thank god). But on weekends - on multiple occasions we waited almost 30 minutes for a train to wtc. The platform was completely packed and as you can imagine the train was jam packed as well when it finally arrived.

A quick 10 min ride to the city turned into a clusterfk sweating 50 minute sardine experience.

I get on weekdays you just cannot run the train any more frequently given the limitation of the technology.

But on weekends why cant they run it every 15 minutes instead of every 30 minutes? There are clearly tons of people still using the path.

Wish the ****** who came up with the weekend schedule will be forced to take those damn trains for a few weekends.

Makes no sense.
