Those darned seniors!

Last week I almost got run down by an old lady riding her 'Hover-round'.

I wish I could have gotten her 'plate number'!

Keep in mind that the taxpayers are shelling out over $17,000 per student/per year for this.

The city also intends to demote several Captains and Lieutenants after promoting four Inspectors to the rank of Deputy Chief. A move that the city argues will save the department money but has devastated morale across the police department.


My income has dropped more than 40% during the past two years due to this recession while my taxes have gone up 40%.

So please spare us the "devasted morale" crap.

Construction site and building inspectors need cars to get around the city quickly from one inspection to another. As much as I detest him, the mayor should get a car (but not his press secretary). Aside from police officers, I don't see why any other city employee needs a car, especially city council members, who work part time. If they must drive to different parts of our city, they can pick up a car at city hall from a motor pool.


This. And the city motor pool should be a fleet of small electrics with a range of no more than 30 miles before they need to be recharged. And the recharge stations can be set up to only charge from a city specific plug-in. That keeps the car from wandering down to Bradley Beach.

Why is this so simple for those of us not working at City Hall?

Unfortunately the party walls between the historic rowhouses do not qualify as firewalls for insurance purposes...nor do they meet today's building code requirements. True firewalls between dwellings must extend beyond the construction of the roof... by 3 feet.

This is all true, but in the old buildings, this is what you've got.

Up to current code or not, it is the existing, "grandfathered" condition. The trigger for upgrading is usually dependent on a renovation and how intensive it is.

For insurance on an old historic rowhouse, the insurance company is aksing me where the firewalls are (i.e. How many units between firewalls).

How would I determine this? Does the JC zoning department have this information?

Robin.


For a rowhouse, the firewalls are typically the masonry "party walls" that separate the individual rowhouses. For a single family, that is the only answer.

For a multi-unit building, in addition to the party walls serving as the firewalls, the walls that separate the dwelling units from the common corridors and stairways are also required to be firewalls.

A "firewall" is a wall assembly that is constructed so as to resist the passage of smoke and fire for a given time period. Typically, the walls noted above are required to have a fire-rating of 2 hours (masonry party walls) and 1 hour (dwelling unit/corridor walls) in a non-sprinklered building. There are variations also depending on number of units, height, area and # of floors, etc.

The ratings of various wall, floor, roof and building element assemblies are compiled by various testing agencies, the biggest in the US being Underwrites Laboratories (UL).

As for the suburbs... they aren't much better. I have one customer that pays over $30k on a home (Maplewood) that is about 3,200 sqft. Its a big house, but by no means a mansion.


But they get good schools, little crime, litter, vandalism, etc. They get cops who actually show up the same day you call them and elected officials who can finish their terms without having to go off to prison.

Bottom line is that everyone should pay their fair share, but no one should have to pay their fair share and feel they are getting raped at the same time.

I'm paying 13K in taxes and 8K on private school. Guess what: that's a whopping 21K for the privilege of living in Healy's circus. The only saving grace is a (hopefully) decent profit once the kid is out of school and I'm out of this hellhole of a city.

I really wanted this place to be all I know it could be, but it's been over 20 years and it just ain't happening.

2. The owner has left notes for people who have parked there earlier (oh.. let's be specific.. rude notes) which means people do this all the time - yet you didn't care

3. After parking there, you "forgot" about it and left it there till the morning.. potentially inconveniencing the owners significantly - yet you didn't care

Hmmm - and you are the only wronged person here. Interesting.

Not for nothing, but do you have any real proof to suspect the person who's garage you blocked?

Seems like a conclusion you are making a huge jump to unless you've had run-ins with that person before.

Not necessarily promoting corporate retail, but there is some truth that the Newport Mall has had a hand in delaying the development of Newark Ave. Compare Newark with Montague st. in Brooklyn Heights and you'll see what I mean.

The mall however is not the only problem on Newark. One of the main issues I think is the overly large spaces on the south side of the street. Many are just too big for the kinds of places that should fill the void the mall does not. I think you just need to look at how much has transformed on Grove from Grand all the way up to first st. to see that the smaller places are renting and being reasonably successful.

To be clear, the group didn't want to get onto The Embankment, rather only to clean-up litter and cut back the overgrowth in the area next to The Embankment where a sidewalk would otherwise be.


That's where this gets interesting.... for those lots, is there technically a portion that would normally be a public right-of-way (sidewalk), and thus open to the public?

I have a sidewalk in front of my house. And while it is my responsibility to clean and maintain it, and while I am liable for any slip & fall lawsuits that could arise, I cannot, for example, erect a 6 foot high fence out to the curb line in front of my house, effectively closing my portion of the sidewalk to the public.

So the question becomes, that while Hyman is correct in saying he would be liable for any injuries, I don't see where he can specifically stop people from picking up litter and pulling weeds on that public right-of-way.
