I believe it's about light and ventilation to make a room habitable. The walls of the "bedroom" don't go up to the ceiling, allowing ventilation and light into the space. Apparently it doesn't have to be a "window".

Re: Plan to lower parking minimums in Jersey City spurs anger

Parking eligibility interpretation has a learning curve - I appreciate the details.

Upon asking a senior parking official, "If 'they' provide a letter from ownership/management Co. stating there are no spaces available they are eligible for an on-street permit. They have to proof annually because availability is subject to change."




Quote:

Key word is AVAILABLE. Once the off-street parking is full, shut out residents are eligible for street permits.

https://www.municode.com/library/nj/je ... 3-10510-23-2013ORNO13-114

G. To assure that both prospective residential tenants and purchasers of property, including condominiums, are aware of the residential parking permit conditions imposed hereunder, every landlord and every seller shall, on or before the date a lease is executed or a deed is conveyed, provide the prospective tenant or buyer with a copy of Section 332-58.


But if a resident in a building of FIVE or more units, that has off-street parking, is not able to get a space in that lot because is full and therefore UNAVAILBLE to them for lease or for free, they can get a street permit.

And the threshold of 5 of more units might pertain to why Prodigal son got a spot, depending on how many units that home had. Under 5 unit in building/home - get as many dang permits as you want. This happens in my hood. There's a homeowner in our parking zone with a 4 unit house, that has converted the back yard into a parking lot with about 5 spaces. He rents all those out for cash, and gets street permits for him and his family. They do not park their own cars there. Its infuriating.

JC also has no limit on number of vehicle permits per address. This is a big problem in terms of discouraging less car ownership. At least in Hoboken they increase the yearly cost of permits on a tiered price increase after the first permit.

Buildings that come with off-street parking - even if it's not 1:1. Are NOT eligible for zone permit parking.

https://www.municode.com/library/nj/je ... 3-10510-23-2013ORNO13-114

E. Parking permits shall be issued to motor vehicles only upon application by the following persons:
(1)
A legal resident of the residential permit parking zone who (a) has a motor vehicle registered in his/her name or available for his/her exclusive use and under his/her control; and (b) resides in a property in which no off-street parking is available to residents, whether the off-street parking is provided free of charge or is only offered for a separate fee or rent.
(2)
A person who owns or leases commercial property and actively engages in business activity within a residential permit parking area or employee thereof (pay stubs shall be submitted for proof of employment). However, no more than one (1) parking permit may be issued for each employee for a motor vehicle registered to or under the control of such a person.
(3)
A person who is a current student of an educational institution (proof of current registration required) located in the residential parking permit zone.

Just the acknowledgment that you all live a block away and hear the club shows that it is louder than it should be. Those of us that live in the building up 8 floors and across street up 7 floors can hear the music transition to the next song while deep inside our apartments. No sound-proofing of the DJ/Bar space was done. All glass walls, no sound absorption on the walls and concrete floors makes for a bad situation to control the noise, especially the bass. If they closed at midnight I wouldn't care, but they're open until 3am - full blast. The owner is attempting to fix it, but he didn't think ahead and do it before he opened up.

They were shutdown Friday for fire code violations, noise above legal limits measured by city officials and several ABC law violations.

Yep, about a block away myself and any noise is barely noticeable outside on the balcony and completely nonexistent inside the apartment. Maybe if you're in the building on the second or third floor you'd be able to hear it some, but across the street it's barely a thing.

Police officers and undercover cops swooped into the neighborhood last night around 130a. Swarmed around the club entrance and shut the place down last night. Not sure what the cause was, but a nice quiet end to a Friday night.

Not exactly happy with this new edition to our neighborhood. This is a residential, not a commercial neighborhood. Who thought a nightclub would be good a idea when there are so many residents willing to call the police for any commotion - in addition to the constant drone of bass of the DJ music (ointz, ointz, ointz) - so annoying and it travels into all the apartments above and across the street. It would be better suited to move the nightclub into the commercial buildings near the waterfront away from people trying to sleep.

Re: Condo Flood Insurance

your mortgage company will have a $ amount the insurance should be - and that should match your condo's flood insurance. If not, your building might be under-insured. If all the correct, you shouldn't have to get extra insurance. Just make sure each year the certificate of insurance is updated and sent to the mortgage company. They don't necessary have the ability to find it themselves so you have to keep track of its expiration date and send the new one in.

You or your family can get visitor passes to hang on your rear view mirror - just scratch off the date when you use it. Always have a few on hand to use in case of family emergencies or family parties. It's cheaper than a parking lot or a boot!

Since the Parking Authority merged into Public Safety Department they have been reviewing oversights. They are checking all renewals. If you live in the smaller buildings you "should" be able to get the Steuben Street permit. But Steuben residents have never had zone 4 permit privileges. Sorry you good deal has come to an end.

Raise this issue to Ward E Councilwoman Osborne - she's on a parking tear - is hoping to remove all Reserved Parking areas, including Steuben Street.

Re: Steuben St parking

The only residents on Steuben Street that fall into the "grandfathered" program are those who live in the single family homes are eligible for the $1 permits (per month) because those homes existed before all of the development in the area. The newer buildings all provide on-site parking, maybe not enough for every unit like in so many other locations, but they have on-site parking so they don't qualify for residential permits. (known policy as of 2011)

Steuben Street has never been in the Zone 4 Permit Parking area - it is occupied by "Reserved Parking" 7a-7p. These spots go for $125 a month - available to anyone, even those who don't live in Jersey City.

Provost Square is the series of towers built by Toll Brothers that starts at Morgan St and Marin Blvd. Then phase two will rise at Morgan between Provost and Warren Street. Last tower, phase three will go up on Bay Street between Provost and Marin Blvd. The rest of the hood is PAD.

Or if not enough board members show up to have a full count vote, they postpone the presentation until next month; this could delay a decision for months and residents opposed eventually give up coming just for it to be postponed again. This especially happens when the application an egregious ask and there's a chance there will be nay votes. Each applicant is entitled to a full quorum. Sometimes they start with a full quorum and then a board member leaves early - then another possible postponement.

CAFE ? A retail sales establishment engaged in selling of light meals and drinks where commercial kitchen appliances or ventilation systems are not permitted. Outdoor seating areas in the front and rear yard are permitted. Sidewalk cafes are permitted pursuant to Chapter 296, Article XII.


Does one still need to apply for separate Sidewalk Cafe License to have front seating? But does it read that rear yard outdoor seating is included with the Cafe License? There is no limit set to how many seats allowed in and outside the retail space . What kind of retail space - bodega, liquor store (?), bakery, newsstand/lottery ticket store fronts, and/or smoke shop? Technically these all sell light meals and drinks.

Shuster is building another 12-13 story building behind Oakman on Second Street that will connect to the empty lot on Marin jet to the north of O'Hara's. It's quite dense. I thought he had already tried but failed to entice the condos on the corner - but I guess they're trying again. All three buildings will share 115 parking garage on the ground level.

Shuster can't build higher than six stories on Marin between First and Second. according to the PAD RDP. If he can get the corner lot (your home) your building will become a 10 foot set back at 4 stories and another setback at six stories to his 135 ft tall building.

Definitely went off from this side of the Hudson - not Red Hook or Governors Island. If you stand in the middle of Warren Street looking south there is a pretty clear view of the Statue of Liberty, aka Liberty Island and Ellis Island is in the same sight line looking towards south. The fireworks barge was off to the east of Ellis Island.

Good question. I thought last night's fireworks were launched from Governor's Island or possibly Red Hook, but it was a bit hard to tell from the angle at my window. I was a surprised at the late hour - the only other time I can remember fireworks going off at midnight is New Year's. Anyway, as a night owl, it didn't awaken me, but I remember thinking people with small kids or who have to work in the morning are just gonna love this.



"Notify-NYC: Notification issued 5/23/15 at 12:00 PM. There will be a fireworks display off Ellis Island tomorrow, Sunday, May 24, at 10:30 PM."

I was wondering why they started an hour and an half late. We normally can't see the fireworks from the PAD but last night they were in full view. The definitely were not launching from the normal place.




Interesting. From my location in the PAD, I couldn't make them out, but then again I was in bed and too tired to get up and look for them. But, I could hear them clearly. I swear I could even feel some vibration from the booming and echo. Were the fireworks launching from further up on the Hudson and not right off Ellis Island? Or, was it just one of those random wind situations that carried the noise further inland by the PAD?


If you stood in the middle of Warren Street - looking towards Statue of Liberty - would have been the best view from PAD, albeit from the ground.
