I don't have an answer to how landlords will deal with it, but property owners in general should expect a dip in their property values to "even-out" the difference. (Example a house worth $500,000 and $10,000 annual taxes might now be worth $480,000 if they're facing $25,000 taxes. Don't get bent out of shape over the numbers, I just pulled them out of the air.)

Market value will dictate the assessments. The Mayor's house was purchased for $800k the new tax rate is predicted to be around $16 per a grand. His house is now assessed at $100k multiplied by the current rate of $77 so he is paying around $8k but at the new rate the mayor could be looking at a $5k jump to near $13k in annual taxes.

My Samsung 46" that I paid $1k for is acting up too, but I fear a 7 year old TV is elderly these days, and not worth repairing.

I'll never buy a Samsung product again, my 10 year old Samsung fridge is on it's 3rd motherboard and is rusting out around the ice dispenser.

Avoid fridge problems buy a dial controlled appliance. The computer board's only purpose is for the digital display and controls. The condenser and compressor will still operate without the bells and whistles. A bad board is like a bad fuse it acts as a go between. My GE Profile had a bad board the new one was a modified version, so I protested about the change got a break on the repair, I also put a claim into loss prevention for the spoiled food got another break, and along with a partial warranty the cost went from $400 to $170.

Try this one - it's in a pretty convenient location -

https://newjersey.craigslist.org/apa/d ... apartment/6463569658.html

It includes electricity so it must be an illegal dwelling, I'd be cautious.

Good point Yvonne, many companies see the advantage that you noticed. Bindi the frozen Italian dessert import company relocated there from Totawa, they are on the Bellville Turnpike and open to the public.


They are open to the public? They had a retail shop when they were in Belleville, I didn't know the new location has a store. You've been there?

I think the Bellville is their warehouse distribution for local deliveries. They used to be in Totawa, N.J. I sent you a PM with details Monroe.

Obviously, neither one of you understands what is important in deciding where to build a corporate headquarter for a technology company.

With the many choices on the list it's doubtful others do either, so please enlighten us bod.

I mentioned this issue and the Captain is well aware of it and knows it happens frequently. Tickets are issued when it occurs and it is a big ticket 8 points and the violation is issued to both the driver and owner of the vehicle.

I think GP made a very significant point and is relevant. I am sure municipal governments, insurance companies, police departments, and health facilities look at these incidents and measure the statistics to see if there is a pattern and where the source of this dilemma is attributed.

I'm new to JC (and the USA as a whole, fresh off the boat a year ago or so). These older names are far superior to the replacements. Actually, one of my peeves is the renaming of everything and anything to historical figures. Maybe if it was just surnames, it'd sit right... but it seems kinda odd to see things like "Martin Luther King Drive", "Ronald Reagan Boulevard" or "Warren G. Harding Middle School".

Then again, I'm probably showing my ignorance and Jackson, Henderson, and Manila were probably named after people (but at least it was just the surname)

Like a property tax reval should we then re-name the streets every five to ten years ? Actually bad example 'cause we have revals nearly every thirty years ? But you get the idea.

I'm trying to do some research on my family. Both my mother and father, Jeanette and Albert (deceased), lived in Jersey City.

My mother's family owned a furniture store, their last name was Nyman. This probably would have been sometime between 1940 and 1960. The furniture store was sold and a grocery store built in its place.

My father's family owned a bakery, their last name was Somlo, same time period as above.

I don't know addresses or even names of the businesses. If anyone has any recollection, I would very much like to hear from you.

Paul

Try the New Jersey Room in the main library on Montgomery St. and Jersey Ave. They have old photos and books on our history. Also you might want to try the Jersey Journal archives in the periodical research area. What section of town was the bakery and furniture store located in ? There are some historians within Jersey City you could also contact.

maybe more and more jersey cities will consider consolidation in order to be run more efficiently. honestly, i don't understand why hudson and bergen counties don't consolidate into one hudson city which would still be smaller than manhattan.

maybe governor-elect murphy should establish a commission to force municipal consolidation.

That is a ridiculous plan, it's not as if we are The South where all the towns are small and they just go by counties. Plus J.C. cannot keep up with their services and police matters as it is. We have equipment suitable for the size of Bayonne, Hoboken, or Secaucus. Our roads are atrocious and the repairs are a joke. Traffic patterns and parking have become a daily battle of wits and aside from bicycle use transportation options are minimal. North Hudson county has consolidated their fire department and that has worked well only because it has to follow strict guidelines with the state and their job is not taxing till it come time to deal with a fire which is a job in itself.

Also, how could anyone whos taxes arent increasing / substantially dropping (greenville & west side) complain that downtown isnt paying enough ? Seems like everyone wants a free ride these days


Again with this? You obviously don't get it. This new (estimated) numbers show what most have been claiming for years now: that DTJC had been underpaying their taxes to the detriment of poorer residents in areas that have seen little or no appreciation.


Yes I realize that genius - and reductions in taxes for Greenville \ Westside are totally warranted, but how is 1.6% multiplier for downtown not enough tho ? Hence free rides


Like I said, you just don't get it. The ~1.6% rate is what EVERYONE will be paying once the reval is concluded. People have been complaining until now because the effective rate being paid my many/most of DTJC was often 1% or lower, while other areas, like Greenville, were paying closer to 5-6%, which is why they are seeing such a substantial drop in their average payment.

It all in the assessment the rate will be $16 per $1000 of assessed value.

Free and outside, all the way to the right of the bay doors. They will also fill your car with air themselves

There is a brand-new building at 222 First Street that was advertised as Luxury Rentals. One year after opening, nobody has moved in, and all of the units are listed online as short-term vacation rentals.

With the housing crunch DTJC is facing, what can be done to prevent more apartment buildings from turning into ad-hoc hotels?

AirBnB has absolutely nothing to do with any housing crunch in JC.

There are over 110,000 housing units in Jersey City. About 300 of them are listed on AirBnB. That's less than 0.3% of all housing units.

The real issue in JC is the same as the area as a whole, namely a lack of affordable housing. The only real option is to build a ton of affordable units. Needless to say, that's not the easiest thing to do in an area that is already developed, and where the locals are not exactly thrilled by the idea of adding more high-density buildings.

Plus the idea of renting out to tenants in an affordable housing environment can be daunting considering the cliental it would invite. Perhaps affordable housing to own as opposed to rent.
