Re: Hello Again Vintage Store @ JC Heights

I have to disagree. The majority of my furniture and decorative pieces are from the late 20's early 30's and I didn't even have to have them refurbished. Clothes, hats, purses, and furs have survived, they do need to be treated well, but are generally VERY interesting and elegant when they are. Jewelry, even not made of gold and silver, are around and just need to be cleaned and any stones, etc. replaced. Back in the days when I had a slimmer figure I often wore dresses from the 30's and 40's.

Sorry but I think 7/11 is so NOT classy. They had to get a permit from someone in the our government. Couldn't our fearless leaders have waited, or tried to attract an alternative?

Now that guy is going to jail. If the statement he gave about not having anything to live for remains, he may be in crisis there. The majority of suicides in jail are in the first 48 hours and are well above national averages. Also in the first year after release from prison. We need to focus our resources on developing different kinds of facilities so there is more hope.

Good thing he didn't seem to intend to hurt anyone else.

Generally tipping is one weeks service i.e maid you pay 80 per clening give her 80 extra and same with hair dressers etc. BUT if you can't afford that just give them something extra--trust me they will know if you really can't afford it or you are being cheap.

Re: Jersey City, Hoboken doctors and pharmacists charged in drug ring

NOT that I know anything other than what's in the papers BUT all they said about Dr. Howell is that he didn't keep good records. Since he wrote prescriptions for painkillers they are looking into if the lack of record keeping was to cover up something. He was also my primary care physician and in my experience was always above board.

I am not commenting on if he's guilty or innocent but I DO KNOW that when the state pays for a sting operation the cost has to be justified by charging somebody with something.

Cue Mary Barr--I like that--being known as someone who loves and appreciates my home AND yes, even the surrounding area. I mean it's 15 minutes to walk downtown folks and I am an over 50 lady with hip replacements. And if I don't want to walk I can jump on the shuttle to Grove Street. And if I get tired of that four blocks away are other nice restaurants, salons, and VVP is a good excersize walk away in the other direction :). I like Jersey City and I love The Beacon. What?!

Re: New Jersey drug dealers get a civil rights victory

Home away from home


Dealing drugs a block away from a school could get a non-violent offender up to seven MORE years behind bars where they could be subjected to rape, violence, and REAL criminals teaching them how to to pick locks, open safes, jack cars, etc. Not to mention the inhumane conditions in US prisons. As a recovering addict, and a drug abuse counselor, I met a whole lot of drug dealers, not one of them dealt to minors or hung around outside school yards. I understand that the majority of folk who have never had dealings in this lifestyle assume a lot of stuff, I did before I knew better, but read some books. Jeffery Archer, a bestselling novelist, wrote some prison diaries I think are good, though the British system is really a lot more respectful than ours. My short stories on the subject have been published internationally and are more realistic. Anyone who would like me to attach a few (free) to an e-mail can e-mail me at mary@marybarr.com.

More good news about The Beacon--The Northern New Jersey District Council of the Urban Land Institute picked The Beacon, a 2 million-square-foot complex of historic Art Deco buildings in Jersey City, for its Project of the Year award. It credited Metrovest Equities, its developer, as creating ?a new neighborhood with market-rate housing and access to mass transit, while restoring the beauty of the original construction.?

That is a short sale---the person owed that much in mortgage and is just trying to recoup that. And don't forget how much the units in downtown are costing---we went over that already but compared to The Beacon the places now going for 370,000, like Crescent Court, aren't nearly up to our standard of amenities or construction.

Thanks for getting back to me Brewster. I really don't care if others like The Beacon or not, I just get steamed when they exaggerate or berate it because of WHATEVER reasons.

I love Philly because, while they do euthanize pit bulls that were fought, they give the others a chance to find forever homes. And statistically chihuahua bites are the most suffered dog bites. Lets kill 'em all.

Brewster you obviously have no appreciation for the art deco era these buildings were established in. The names of all the buildings are after famous art deco theaters. Look 'em up. Rialto, Capitol, Mercury and more to come.

Bill463 you obviously haven't checked out the prices for other condos in JC that don't have the ambience or amenities of ours--some one bedrooms that are BORING going for $370,000. These lofts have 3,600 to 6,000 squre feet, private elevators, and can be customized.

Xerxes you can't find these ANYWHERE. Not in NYC, which can be as little as 15 minutes away by car and less than that by path, not with these amenities, this style, and this size. If I had the bucks I'd definitely go for one.

AND I'm a bit sick of the JC dwellers that sound as if they are ashamed of JC. All NYC has is overcrowding, ridiculously inflated real estate prices, and everything good about it I can get by jumping on the path. I save a hell of a lot of money and I get views of the NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty. NYC mostly has views of other buildings or dirty streets. Oh and absolutely NO CLOSET SPACE. That's why I moved to Jersey from Midtown.

It needs to go somewhere and it doesn't sound like you want it in your neighborhood, and I really wouldn't mind it in mine. Possibly because we are set back from the street and wouldn't have the noise. But wouldn't it be closing early? I don't want to minimize your concerns but I would rather have the kids occupied doing positive things in my neighborhood than the alternatives.

Yes and don't forget Hepatitis C is an epidemic as well. Please use protection if you and your partner have not been tested. While Hep C is harder to get by sexual transmission it is still possible so why play Russian roulette? And other sexually transmitted diseases are still around.

Because Verizon used our hallway as an ad for thier service with the two boys who walk down the long hall :) They picked it for being the prettiest and shiniest hallway. The Beacon is the bomb! Don't go there about our building just because of an unofficial website.

My name is Mary and I clean at The Beacon--I have references am thorough and reliable. My number is 201-417-1748. I also do specialty dog sitting--I am not a dog walker, but will walk your dogs and keep them at my home part time while you are gone for a period of time. Much cheaper and better than a kennel.

It isn't that hard to become a 'felon'. I was walking with with a guy and girl in FL when a cop recognized the guy, pulled us over, searched him, and found drug paraphernalia on him. That is a felony in FL. What got me was that he charged all three of us with possession of one pipe! YEAH and me and the other girl actually got found guilty--thanks to public defenders with no clout. I am now a convicted felon. Like you said: We can all thank our wonderfull legislators for putting in place the system that allows for this.

First of all what does a felon look like? Do you think someone formerly convicted of a felony can't change? I can tell you they do. Or that they all were actually guilty when arrested? I can tell you a whole lot were not guilty. And there are a lot of folk arrested on misdemeanor charges behind bars because they can't afford a lawyer and/or bail. They make up the majority of revolving door statistics.

This is a great cause and I feel for the family. It is fitting that they describe the mom as a courageous corrections officer -- I just wish more folk would feel for the kids of those incarcerated in corrections facilities. Please visit angeltree.org and correctionalassociation.org to find out how you can help both prisoners and thier kids for the holidays.

It is a bit strange that you waited this long---is it because you just received the letter? I agree cops generally are too aggressive and it does sound like they could have been a bit more diplomatic, but I would pick my fights carefully, and I would also have just said whatever the trouble is it will be fixed officer.
