Re: HUGE GAS PIPELINE COMING - through Jersey City
Home away from home
Home away from home


since jersey city lost, i have purchased the berkey filter to protect my family and myself.

From my research this suppose to operate at a professional level and used by people in undeveloped areas across the global to filter dirty/polluted river water to drinking water.

I also have the filtered water sent to a epa certified lab to be tested to confirm the filter is working correctly.

http://www.amazon.com/Berkey-Water-Fi ... s-Fluoride/dp/B003W5VBL2/

Cant be too careful, a few cups of contaminated water wont do much but long term exposure over many years is a different story, especially if you have young children. It is a fact those extremely high pressure gas pipes will leech out toxins into the ground and eventually the water supply over time as they deteriorate, no matter what the gas companies like you to believe.

what big plans? i thought they were just going to use those warehouses as specialized storage units for artworks, rented out to people.

Re: Goldman Sachs: Shadier than JC govt.

this has been going on for a while, i dont know why all of it sudden it became news.

why just trade the metal futures when you can also control the underlying physical commodity and move the market by force. It's like playing blackjack while teamed up with the dealer. Not to mention goldman is also a key member of the committee that makes up the rules for those commodities.

All angles covered, retail has no chance. Sick and brilliant. Heard they were planning to move into copper soon with the same plan but all this exposure will probably put that on hold for a while.

I dont blame goldman, if you put a shark next to a bloodied piece of meat, it's going to bite it. I blame the government for putting the meat there, all of this is made possible because the sec approved some policy that made this legal in the usa after lobbying by the banks. The sec lady(?) approved it right before she retired, what a bitch.

Fulop has said during the debates he plans to give abatements to other parts of the city. There will be a backlash if reval happens and taxes are raised substantially then new construction is protected with abatements. This is the reason I believe the reval has been cancelled.


i dont understand why abatement hits such a nerve with people here. The abatement in jersey city is completely different than what's in NY(which is real abatement where you dont pay taxes or pay pennies on dollar).

In JC, for example my 1br condo has abatement, but i am still paying $6500 a year in taxes so is everyone else in my building, and all the other condo buildings. I also own another unit in a similar type "luxury" highrise where there is no abatement, and the regular property tax is about $5000 which is even lower. Even crystal point which caused so much drama for having granted a lower abatement rate, their resident is still paying $5500+ a year for 1br in taxes.

The only thing abatement does is funnel the money to jersey city instead of the state as i understand it, which is beneficial to the city. It's not like anyone is getting a free ride with abatement.

So why is there so much anger towards it?

Garbage everywhere, crimes unstoppable, grand developments left abandoned with no enforcement from the city and an unmanageable budget.

Out of all the issues jersey city has, the new mayor decides to waste his time and effort to stop the freeloaders from paying their fair share of tax.

This is very disappointing.

Look at st johns across the street instead ( 3 condos buildings at 10 huron ave, 201 & 225 st pauls ), much better choice and nicer/quiet area away from the highway, also closer to jsq path.

Re: Nha Trang - Vietnamese place on Newark Avenue

There are plenty of overpriced fancy restaurants that takes forever to order and serve in JC. NT was a special place that had easy parking, good food, cheap price and a relaxed but quick service.

After a long day of work, this is a great place just to get some good food fast then be on your way home.

The new location's parking is a problem, more expensive and slower. I wish they at least picked a place on the other side of the mall.

Does anyone know if the plan to transform the warehouse confirmed and done deal or just a pipe dream at this point?

I have been looking at this building directly outside of my window for 3+ years, the progress has been snail paced. They would do a bit work for a few weeks, then the whole thing would stop for 6+ months, followed by another few weeks of work etc..

The lot west of Powerhouse is 111 First Street. Google it and you find out the history of this lot and that fact that the promised building by notorious architect Rem Koolhaas has failed to materialize since the announcement in 2007 (crap deal made by our current mayor.) The piles of stacked bricks are promised to be used in the new building - should it ever be built.
You MUST have notice that steel poles disappearing from 111 First lot and being carried over and then driven into the ground across the street at 110 First Street (google it). They just had the ceremony last week - with the mayor in attendance.
The Butler Brothers building is still stagnant because the owner seems to fail to do anything reasonable to get it occupied. Very sad.
The triangular lot north of Powerhouse is where Port Authority will eventually move it's power equipment - upgraded to the 21st century.

if you read through the following blog:
http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3795&page=256
you should find the answers to a lot of your questions.


ah thanks yes that's exactly the area i was referring to 110 first street. So even though there are a lot of activities, they are not actually building anything there yet?

this lot is such an eyesore, at this point in my personal opinion anything there is better than what it looks like now, heck even just a concrete parking lot would be a big improvement.

how can the city let something in this condition sit in a in-demand valuable area for years without any plan is beyond my understanding of politics. If it was sold to a developer force them to build it per the original agreement or take it back, if the city owns it then auction it off to someone to build there and collect taxes from it.

hi does anyone know

1) what work is being done on the powerhouse? i see there are finally activities again - building temporary stair cases to the roof and trucks with materials piling it on the side. What are they doing exactly?

2) the weed filled lot directly west of the powerhouse where there were stashes of brick and metal bars is now also full of activities, they had bulldozers there making some sort of circle. Same question does anyone what they are building there?

i wish there is an easy way to get informed of what's going on around the area, as I see both sites out of my window but noone seem to know what they are doing.

thanks

Re: McGinley Square Revitalization - Will anything ever happen?
Home away from home

The article is actually quite well written and reflect the reality of the area, a simple tax record search confirms the numbers. Beacon's price drop was one of the largest in jc for the simple reason it was selling at the same price as the downtown highrise condos during the height of the bubble but not located in such area. But it is not the only building, canco loft also experienced a large price drop (not as bad as the beacon though).

I was surprised to learn Filopoulos was under such financial stress, knew the complex wasnt doing well at the time, when they flipped condos to mercury loft after much fanfare then flipped to rentals again.

But there is hope for the current owners underwater, with the rental market already red hot and condos starting to come back. If you are a resident not an investor then time is on your side.

This is a lesson on location, many will not soon forget.

Re: Australians investors buying up Jersey City housing
Home away from home
Home away from home


Been a lurker here for a while, figured i register and post my thoughts since this is a topic of interest to me.

As a long time JC resident, i think the fund is beneficial to JC, looking at their portfolio of properties, most of them are originally rundown in the less popular areas that they fixed up and brought tenants in, instead of leaving it vacant to deteriorate. That alone is good for the neighborhood.

But as a small time investor who knows the local market pretty well, i am very surprised at the cost they paid for those properties, it looks high given the less than ideal locations and conditions of those properties, maybe it included the cost of rennovation as well not just the sale price, i guess the online tax record can confirm.

Right now it's a landlord's wet dream but if the market/economy cycles, those properties' cashflow and value are the first ones to be at risk given the bad location and quality of tenants, just have to look at 08. It's interesting the fund decide not to go after better located units by the jsq path, or downtown jc where there is always demand. Given its resources, they could also get on the board in some of the cheaper but well located apt buildings, like the coops on montogomery st or st johns condos by jsq path/little india, all of which can weather a downturn much better. Instead they are just buying houses like individual investors, but in subpar locations and tenants without any particular price advantage.
