Every four years, actually. The rotation is with Bethpage, Ridgewood, and Plainfield. It will return here in 2017.

I was there last time (it was actually 2009) and enjoyed it. It was not overcrowded at all and there were opportunities to get great views of the golfers, including Tiger and Phil. On one tee we could practically reach out and touch the golfers. We wandered the course, as opposed to staying at one hole or following a certain player. It was really hot and muggy, but we had splurged for a private "lounge" area next to one of the fairways that was air conditioned and had a bar and bathroom. That helped us survive. The overall reviews were on the negative side from the golfers, but some thought a major could be held there one day. There is a very short par 3 (150 yard 14th) that was fun to watch as they all seemed to put the ball within a couple of feet of the hole. This hole is right along the water with the statue off to the right. The course has a European links feel to it in some areas, and of course the views from some are spectacular, but nothing us locals aren't used to.

I think the golfers complaint was that it felt tight and cramped, which is probably true for the players. It was wet and muggy and the grounds were kind of heavy and thick from it. Tiger and Vijay Singh were not crazy about it, but they complain about every damn thing. Padraig Harrington loved it, but he's used to tight Euro courses. As far as walking around and watching the players, the course, and the views, it was a lot of fun. We are going this year again and the weather outlook is ok so far.

Last time, all of the big names showed up. There is a free shuttle from the Newport light rail. I remember the shuttle working pretty well, but we left early on Sunday before the finish. There was no delay getting into the grounds at all. We showed up right around the opening.

There might still be specials on Ticketmaster of social media.

I forgot to add that the units have those under-the-window heating/AC units which are electric and tend to be expensive to run. I don't recall the exact amounts of my bills, though. I know they weren't in the $400 range. I would only have them running as needed.

I lived here for over a year soon after it was built, in 2006. I rented from an owner. It was fine for a rental, but I would not have invested as an owner. I thought the quality of the units - flooring, doors, cabinets, etc - were what you would find in a typical rental building. Home Depot quality. Of course, some units may have upgrades that mine did not have. The flooring seemed like it did not adhere well and buckled slightly in some areas. If you looked at the bottom of the doors, either the floors were crooked or the door was because you could see a widening gap between the floor and door. Not many amenities. The courtyard is nice. Small gym. Quiet location. Not much to look at view-wise. I cannot speak to how well it held up during Sandy. I know the penthouse units have several skylights, which may or may not have held up. And I also cannot speak to any issues that may have arisen or been taken care of in the last five years.

I was happy living there. Perfectly adequate as a short-term rental, but I think you would have a hard time competing against some of the newer condos if you purchased and wanted to sell in a few years. You might attract a buyer looking for a cheaper, no-frills condo, though.

Hoboken is tremendous for singles in their 20's. When you move into your 30's and 40's, you need to start thinking about moving on. My guess is that people who hate on Hoboken weren't getting laid.

Re: Gov. Christie's shameless $2M self-promotion: Editorial

Your juvenile response is accurate with regards to Christie almost surely winning the election. I was just saying your immature previous comments regarding the newspapers were clueless. And Christie's only actions during the storm were to tell people to be careful and then bow and turn both palms up to the feds. He wasn't reaching across the aisle, he was reaching out for money. He is not a good leader. He is a good obfuscator. He will get his ass handed to him in a national election. Know this. He won't make it that far, though, since his own party won't put him out there.

We can expect to see more silly anti-Christie screeds as the election steamroller gets closer. Since hardly anyone reads the SL-indeed, will they even be around by election time-it's no biggie.

Slanted, biased journalism lesson-the NYTimes took a 930 million dollar haircut on their purchase and selloff of the Boston Globe this week!


Did McGreevey take money that was meant to help New Jerseyans in order to make those tourism commercials and run them during a re-election campaign?

And the sale for a loss of the Boston Globe has nothing to do with "slanted" journalism and everything to do with the delivery of news these days. The NY Times is the premier newspaper in the US and certainly the most well-written. It is a profitable newspaper which has a circulation more than triple that of the unprofitable, right-wing NY Post.

So what is the real lesson?

From the website:

(Tickets are valid for one continuous trip in one direction.)

This means that you are not supposed to use it for the return trip. You could probably get away with it since the checkers only glance to see the expiration time, but I have heard of people getting a fine because they used the same ticket on a return trip, even though it had not expired.

Another vote for Provident. Provident is the choice if you want to do anything in person. And if you meet the requirements, you will receive almost twice as much in interest as any other bank on your first $15k. If you do not think you can meet the requirements, then an online bank such as Ally may be the way to go. FYI - Ally is the rebranding of the old General Motors Acceptance Corp. Provident is headquartered in Jersey City, if this means anything to you.

It is more likely that she would be dead. And relaxed gun laws would have made it more likely that the intruder would be armed, in which case she would also likely be dead. Fortunately, no guns were in sight and she is alive and he will be caught.

The hands and "Colgate" sign were removed and they are now taking down the actual metal "crossbars" of the structure itself. It has been relocated before, so it could be again. Goldman Sachs is in charge of maintaining the clock, so maybe it will become the Goldman Sachs Clock.

They have a $1,899 home purchase deal if you go through their title company. Rates are very competitive and they close quickly if you have your stuff together and pro-actively stay in touch with them and your own lawyer. Currently 3.5% for 30-year fixed, no points. Lower than both Sovereign and Citi. Co-op rates might be higher, though.

Yes. Two times. We need a good, classic diner, with decent coffee and a 25 page menu.


There is a new diner style place in JC.... the old Pink Flamingo (Dirty Bird) is back... New name / owner but the food is great. open late hours.


Oh awesome, they kept it a diner(ish)? Word on these pages was it had plans to go fancy(esque).


The new City Diner is excellent, but not exactly your typical NJ diner. It is a bit higher end. I wouldn't call it fancy. Just modern.

I would recommend a Speed Queen model, but I don't think they make one small enough for you. The smallest is 27". They are made in the USA and built like tanks. They use knobs instead of digital control panels. To clean clothes you need water, detergent, and an agitator. Anything else is superfluous nonsense.

You people don't know what you're talking about. At last night's debate, even though the Ward F audience and the NAACP moderators were hostile to him, the Mayor was strong and forceful and did a great job. He called your Full-op-It out on his dirty lies.

Unlike Councilboy Stevie, MAYOR Healy has a record to run on. He's done a great job in difficult times. He's added police and kept the streets safe. He's held property taxes down. He's overseen great economic development not just downtown but everywhere. And when Sandy hit, who was it that was actually making the city work, protecting lives and property? Not Stevie boy, but MAYOR Healy. And unlike Stevie, He's got a wife and kids and grandkids WHO LIVE IN JERSEY CITY!

Here's how this election is going down. All you do-gooders and dreamers downtown don't know how to run a campaign. You talk youself to death about how terrible our MAYOR is, and still nobody downtown will bother to vote.

MAYOR Healy has built up a lifetime of credibility with the REAL voters of Jersey City. They've got lives and don't bother with all this crap, but they will show up to vote, and send Stevie boy and all you wannabees back home to whereever it is you came from.





Having several generations of one's family continue to live in Jersey City is not an accomplishment to be proud of. It is a failure.

A lot of people relate to Healy for just this reason. They identify with him more than the polished yuppie.
