Also during Sandy when the light rail was out I drove to Bayonne sometimes to catch the bus to Wall street which took 40 min and sometimes less. Other times I caught the ferry at Port Liberte. There are plenty of reasons to dislike Bayonne but its distance from Manhattan is not one of them.

Tons of price drops = a possible motived seller.

Not all that far from 8th street light station although need to cross 440, perhaps there is an overpass walkway.

Bayonne Crossing has tons of shopping and it's near by.

Great starter home with what looks like little needed in the way of renovations (big plus considering the cost and time for dealing with contractors) - 3 car PARKING which is huge after dealing with the struggles in JC if you have more than one car.

I'd come in low @ $205k cash offer (you can always go up so start low) with no contingencies (there is a noted lead paint disclosure) after a really thorough balls to the wall home inspection with a specula and also seeing clear title ready to transfer.

It's brick and seems to have been built in the late 50's when there was still a level of craftsmanship you simply don't see today with the all the prefab crap used.

Sure it's Bayonne, considered the armpit of NJ - but it is actually a safe community with a lot of pride in homeownership there.

You should have seen Hamilton Park 25 years ago, it was rank nasty nasty.

Just food for thought.

I'm sure there are much much better deals for those who want to do the leg work and hit the ground running or pay premiums to stay in the hip area of JC.





Anyone have old pics of Hamilton Park? I tried a quick google search.


I have plenty of old pics and videos too. I have been here longer than most. HP was never that bad. Yes, we had crime and I even saw a guy seconds after he was shot in the head during a coat robbery. He lay on the sidewalk on 8th St by St. Francis Hospital (That's the Hamilton Place Condos for you newbies) as blood streamed out of his head and pooled up all around him. He was dead in seconds. My buddies and I played football in HP almost every weekend from 88' through to the early 90's. The first brownstone I lived in next to Salon X (formerly Freddy's Deli) sold for $80,000. The PATH Trains were much less crowded and the walk through the new construction around Newport could be scary late at night as there were few people around. Anyone else remember that temporary bridge thing everyone had to pass through on the way to the PATH? It was where the office buildings are just past the light-rail station. Luckily, I never had any incidents on the PATH. We used to walk to Maxwell's and the Elysian in Hoboken. That walk was pretty desolate back then. Nowadays, although it's great for home values, most of the longtime residents I know hate all the crowding that is happening and will continue to happen. The new restaurants are okay but Newark Ave. now resembles Hoboken Frat douchiness on a summer weekend night. Jersey City has lost any chance of having a "cool" factor. It's just another Flushing, Queens. In 20 years it will all be underwater and home owners will be f**ked.

I have seen this many times over the years. It can be anywhere from "Oh cool" to sinus opening "WTF?!" The big jets sometimes look like they're just hanging in middair. I always know what it is but it's always thrilling. The scary thing around DTJC is the helicopter traffic. I saw a guy the other day who banked hard right over Hamilton Park to avoid an oncoming chopper. Most of the time those guys are flying using only their own vision to detect other traffic. They fly low and the other choppers can be easily lost in the background of buildings and the ground.

Re: Dog Runs + Distracted Owners = Dog Poop
#34

One of the issues around Hamilton Park seems to be people using their nannies as dog-walkers. Also, It is usually a very well dressed, well to do person who I have to admonish. Often they are foreign and I say this only because, perhaps it's a cultural thing? A "I have people for that" attitude? It's also often younger, first time owner types. BTW, the playground in HP takes a beating too as far as littering. Need I mention the basketball court again?

Dog Runs + Distracted Owners = Dog Poop
#35
Home away from home
Home away from home


I am a longtime dog owner and I have noticed quite often that other dog owners are standing or sitting in the Hamilton Park dog runs completely oblivious to what their dogs are doing. Quite often they have their noses buried in their phones or are chatting away while their dogs poop away unnoticed. We also seem to have a new crop of residents who can't seem to make the effort to clean up after their dogs throughout the park. I don't know if it's kids or lazy hipsters or untrained foreigners but it's time for dog owners to start cracking down on the new crop (crap?) of scofflaws.

Definitely some concerns with the growing vehicular traffic in the area (full disc. I'm a driver adding to the traffic myself but I try to walk/take public transit as much as I can).

One other item of note that I have seen time and time again (and as a driver it concerns me) is that on various streets (especially Jersey Avenue) cars are allowed to park right up to the corner. And I have yet to see a car ticketed.

This is bad due to the fact that it partially cuts off the view of the beginning of the crosswalk and even for a driver going the speed limit, it is easy to miss someone who isn't bothering to look for oncoming cars and just launches into the crosswalk.

Pedestrians of course always have the right of way, but at least prevent cars from obstructing part of the crosswalk so drivers can safely anticipate when someone is about to cross. Driving slowly and safely is obviously the main answer...but anything we can do to help drivers and pedestrians help each other be safe is a good thing!

Question is, who is best to write to about it? The cops? City Hall?


I've said this before and will say it again, if I were ever injured by a car because the driver's view was blocked I would insist that any car parked illegally be noted by the cops and their owners included in any civil suit.

Yesterday Monmouth Street was closed at Pavonia and the cops were diverting all the usual Northbound traffic towards Hamilton Park. The rate of speeders and people jumping the Stop Signs was incredible. The fact that our streets are allowed to be used as racetracks without consequence is ridiculous. I witnessed pedestrians being ignored and several near misses at various intersections. Time for the cops to step up enforcement.

The businesses at these condos are show-pieces or "staging" if you like. S&C is run by one of the sales-people (and his partner) at Hamilton Place. The Pet food/Baby store is also run by a Silverman employee. I would guess they are paying none or very little rent. They are there to present an attraction to new residents, potential buyers. G.P.'s is mediocre and the other place on the corner has been struggling to keep businesses in there. The pharmacy is, like most pharmacies, a money machine. I have nothing against these places but you should understand that they are not necessarily "quality" as much as they are an attraction.

A driver is responsible for everything that happens in front of them. If it were raining or snowing they could use the excuse of limited visibility. The driver will face major liability claims even if he escapes major criminal charges.

I arrived home just before this occurred. Some people were outside hanging out and all seemed fine. But I was in the house for about 30 minutes when I heard some loud commotion followed by some screaming. The police were there pretty quick.

The people were on Crescent. I'm guessing the argument moved down the street to where their car was likely parked.

I remember lots of rumors that emerged in the days after 9-11-01. The one about Jewish people not going to work that day. I also heard one about Muslim men celebrating on a rooftop in Jersey City where they had set up lawn chairs waiting for the events to unfold. In the years since we now have everything from full-on military-industrial war profiteering in the billions to conspiracy theories spawning dozens of books and countless babbling youtube videos. The "information age" has reached such a din that people are willing to proliferate and/or believe anything that suits their narrative. Now we have people who swear that the next attack will be on a cornfield in Iowa...

The Mezuzah would be in their doorframe. I don’t care about you blessing your condo.

Considering the Catholic Church chooses to depict a nearly naked man with spikes through his hands, thorns around his head and slashes and cuts dripping blood throughout his body, I find it rather comical that a bunch of healthy people in a photograph would be alarming, disturbing or embarrassing…

A lot of that litter seems to be stuff that was blown around from the overflowing garbage cans. We have the same problem in Hamilton Park. Are there cultures which are more prone to littering? I think it's more about the economic class status and alcohol use than anything else. Then again have you ever been to a Giants game and seen the complete dump that the parking lots become afterwards?
