Re: The Beacon

This thread is getting ridiculous. I don't own in the Beacon, but moved from downtown to buy an apartment not far from it in the McGinley Square area. Sure, it doesn't have all the amenities of downtown, but I bought at the price I could afford. I like the neighborhood and feel that it has the potential to improve. It's not going to happen overnight, and I think all of the Beacon residents know that.

Yes, I could see why an original owner might be a little annoyed that someone is getting a place cheaper than what they paid a few years ago, but they'll also be getting neighbors that will help build the sense of community there.

It seems like the naysayers on the board want Beacon to admit massive failure, shut down, and keep Montgomery Gardens up so they can have some superiority how much better their section of town is than our area. Seriously people, calm down. This is giving some people that wouldn't necessarily have been able to own property at the original price point a chance to own property in a unique complex. I honestly don't see anything wrong with that.

It seems like they just used force to break open the door. the basement door is at the end of a hallway. doesn't seem like they got anything from the storage units fortunately.

I live on Brunswick near 2nd, and someone broke into our building last Sunday with the same M.O. I'm supposed to store my bike in the basement, but had it in my apartment that night. Guess it was a mini crime wave. I hope their cut gets infected with swine flu.

definitely not accurate. 300k for a small one bedroom on Communipaw? I live ten blocks closer to the waterfront than Cpaw and paid less than 200k for my very nicely sized 1br. It's a buyers market now. Depending on what your criteria is (close to PATH/buses/parking situation/etc.), you can almost definitely find something that fits your budget and needs.

I can't speak for Hamilton Park Montessori, but I'm the product of a Montessori school. The school I went to was K-6, and while it lacked the structure of a normal school, I remember it being fun. When it was time to go to a different school, I tested smart enough to skip 7th grade. PM me if you have any questions about Montessori in general.

Re: Dixon Mills Area Safety

I disagree completely with what Shadow said. I lived in Dixon Mills for three years or so and never had any problems. During the day it's fine, and walking back from the Grove Street PATH and the bars/restaurants on Newark and Grove at night were no problems either. Keep in mind that it is a city though, and it's not like you're moving to a completely crime-free area. The security guards at Dixon are a good deterrent, but there are still occasional instances that take place in the area that you'll probably read about here. The East Village definitely has more pedestrian traffic than the area, especially late at night, but you can always take a cab if you're that concerned. And you've lived in Manhattan - it's not like you're moving from a suburb. Just keep your wits about you and use common sense (no headphones/ipod while you're walking, careful using your phone, etc), and you'll be fine.

Re: Journal Square: Stricter cab rules in motion

I moved to the Journal Square area a few months ago and don't understand the cab situation at all. I'm a 15 minute walk from JSQ, but have only taken a cab when I've really needed to. The first time I tried to get in a cab, the driver and another driver got in an argument, so I just walked off. The other several times, I've had to share and have gotten charged full fare. That can't be legal.

the monthly fee will go up $5 as of July 1. They've been doing some upkeep/trimming since they've announced they're taking over, and say they plan on paving the lot, installing a gate and passkey system and giving assigned parking spots. they're definitely talking a good game, and if they follow through and keep their word, it will be pretty impressive.

get a bike! it's a straight shot down the hill. You can pick up a cheap beater bike for under $100. Other than that, your best bet is to walk up to the Journal Square PATH station and catch a train. I wouldn't recommend walking there, especially late at night. gets a little sketchy down by the beacon/projects next to them.

Saint Peters College area - parking?
#44

I'm moving to Duncan Avenue later this week, and have noticed that parking is next to impossible. I have a five year-old Honda, and I know they're cars that are generally on the most-stolen list. Does anyone know of any safe and secure places to park around the St. Peters area?

So what are you saying? That everyone that's said that the St. Peters area is safe, from college students to a 75 year old man, are wrong? Weigh in, or at least define what 'off the mark a bit' means, please...
