Re: UBER - car service in Jersey City
#61
Home away from home
Home away from home


I liked Uber until I found out why it's cheap. Basically the Uber X drivers are underinsured and don't have a TLC license. If an Uber driver gets into an at fault accident carrying a passenger they basically out of luck because Uber only covers if you're not at fault and their personal insurance won't cover it because they were using it for a commercial activity. The PA is issuing drivers tickets because they don't have a TLC license and the fines total to more than $5k so that's why the Uner drivers are scared.

I don't mind stop and frisk since it means criminals have to think twice before going to the streets with weapons or drugs. You can see the difference now that they have stopped the program in NYC the crime rate has started to rise since criminals are no longer in fear. As for this senseless murder, I hope the rats responsible for this are found quickly and thrown in confinement, I wish they never took away the death penalty as these rats should be put down as they have no use for society.

Re: Rent is spiraling out of control
#65

Home away from home


Come on now, the reason why rents are going through the roof is because of the NYC real estate market, not immigrants. People want to live close to Manhattan and that's why rents jumped in DTJC and in turn all the new people moving into DTJC has meant jobs for the rest of city helping jack up the rents for everybody else. Also the never ending tax hikes, utilities hikes, insurances hikes, have also contributed to this.

Greenville,
How clueless are you?

Do you mean more bang for your dollar per square foot than any other place in the city? Where you can purchase a house with a garage and yard and actually how room to move around?
Do you mean where you can buy a brownstone that would be over a million dollars in Brooklyn, Hoboken and downtown JC for half the price in a nice neighborhood?

Is this what you mean?

Don't be jealous as to what's going on up here. The Heights has always been one of the nicest and most underrated parts of the city and it's finally getting it's due.

If you had any sense at all, you should've bought up here.
You didn't, so stay in Greenville and be bitter.

Unbelievable,... get a clue, please.

Just a quick look in the market and it seems to me some real estate agents are out of their mind with asking prices for the Heights. Knowing how things in the Heights are you have to be a complete fool to pay even 75% of what they're asking for.

If your using Uber to go from Jersey City to NYC make sure have someone ride in the front passenger seat of the car since the Port Authority is pulling over drivers and giving tickets.

I think street parking should cost closer to garage price. Enough to make the difference less substantial and more people will then opt for garages. Maybe $500/yr ----but i see the sh*** hitting the fan if that was proposed.


We need automated parking garages like in Japan (yes I know about what happen to the one in Hoboken) for residents to free up the space for those who need to do business in city and since space is becoming scarce in the street.. Overnight parking is a nightmare in my section of the city also and having parking garages like they do in Japan would help the city greatly. I would support charging those types of fees so we could fund these garages. Downtown needs these garages with the amount of new construction going on so please rally people so we can make this happen. Here's an example of a garage in Japan.

I foresee many of Downtown's renters who want to buy condos been priced out of their respective neighborhoods and probably ending up in Journal Square or those who do not embrace cultural diversity will be Bayonne residents! Rents are through the roof and that is jacking up prices in the whole city. Many of you Downtowners who rent are not going to live there for much longer. And it's not like before where people are taking loans jacking up prices, these people are paying cash or are multi-million dollar corporations.

Fire chief came by a few weeks later and explained to us that for steel and concrete structures, each apt is a fire-proof box, as required by code.

So long as the fire isn't on your floor or the ones above or below you, you could in fact stay put and await further instructions. This way not everyone is stampeding to escape the building.

The low rise rental communities are among the worst as they're pretty much all wood.

Are the Avalon Cove Apartments built the same way? The Edgewater buildings burned before and instead of learning from the previous fire they decided to build it the same way. This is why I do not like newly constructed buildings, since they had higher standards back in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s except for the asbestos and lead paint. Just imagine if this had been at night, we would certainly be looking at many casualties.

Most likely perpetrated by someone who works or used to work there. Tying someone up is usually done in Hollywood movies now a days, someone needed it to seem legit. And I hope the JCPD pts video of the incident out soon, not a month from now once they exhaust all other leads.

Of course, the more JC gentrifies, the fewer police will actually be able to live here. Which goes to bill's point will it be wrong to enforce residency requirements, when the cops will only be able to afford to live in GV?


And why would this be a bad thing?

Greenville - the JJ is reporting that the three shooting victims from the Virginia Ave incident are all alive. Do you know differently?

A tragedy all around.


Per the police chatter this morning, one had been shot in the head and had brain matter coming out in the Virginia ave incident and would either pass away or be on machine assisted living for the rest of their life.

The only time I used the damn Path is on the late hours of night on the weekends. Time to start calling the mayor and members of city council. If this really happens, the traffic at the Holland tunnel and downtown would be unbearable on the weekends. It would reduce property values, and it would affect our hotels. Downtowners better get their pitch forks ready, because if this happens we all get f*cked.

Re: NJ amongst worst run States - Time to dump Christie!

Christie is not the problem. Most of the problems stem from unsustainable pension promises and salaries for the public sector. We also have a huge corruption problem at the local level too, and they aren't too many Republicans around here so there is only one party to blame. Too bad people in this nation think that their political parties are like sports teams in which they have to support everything the party does to win. If you think voting Republican is gonna alleviate the problem you're sadly mistaken. Republicans around the nation are the biggest dependents of government money. Most red states depend heavily on defense spending, and defense spending is littered with corruption. I am for defending the nation as I once wore the uniform, but I'm not doing for robbing the nation blind like many republicans have done by letting corporations charge taxpayers ten times what something is worth like they do now.

The North Jersey chapter of the National Action Network held a rally to protest the grand jury?s decision not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Less than 10 people participated in the rally, but they made sure that the hundreds of people lined up for free Thanksgiving meals across the street heard their message.

?All the turkeys are giving out turkeys,?

Nice thing to say about people who are volunteering their time to help the needy, just happened to be police officers and who had NOTHING to do with the events in Ferguson. Would she rather that people don't eat on Thanksgiving?


I wonder if she had a protest for the senseless killing of that cop this past summer.


What an idiotic thing to say.
