Unfortunately gorgeous females generally do not work at mall kiosks.

Also the men and women at that skin care kiosk right before them that also that chirp " Excuse me can I ask you a question?" - every day, day in and day out. When my partner and I walk past them he always says don't look into their eyes! - even that does not work. !


I hate those skin care people. One day I finally lost it and yelled at the woman. Now they recognize me and turn away every time I walk by. Hilarious.

Wibbit,

The Metropolis Towers is a really bad example - it was built way back in the 1960's -- it has always been among the cheapest rentals Downtown. Posters always point out that the decks lean way down, that there are roaches & mice -- and a bunch of units just went up for sale at an IRS auction really cheap.

I think the studios in there have only ever rented for $1250, but I do agree that there has been a loss of jobs on the waterfront!


FWIW, I looked at a 1BR apartment in Metropolis back in 2003-2004 and it was $1350.

Just came across this article earlier today. Comcast offers, by far, the least amount of HD channels compared to other TV service providers. At this point the two satellite companies are the clear cut winners for offering HD content.

The letter said I've been getting "Blast" and haven't been charged extra for it and not I will start being charged. Sounds fishy to me. And even if this is a real service, I don't think I need "Blast"


I assume you are talking about internet service? I have the 'Performance' service and have tested speeds of close to 12 Mbps down which is certainly more than enough for me.

Directv has offered all of those in HD (and more) for over a year now. Switch if you have the option.

Ever since moving to JC I lowered the deductible on the Comprehensive portion of my auto insurance to $100 so that it would be very affordable if my car was damaged in situations such as this. I have been lucky so far with no incidents.

They have been saying "6 months" for the past 2 years.

Yup, I did it for 3 years and then finally decided to get a garage spot. Basically you need to move your car every day except Wed. As a general rule it is best if you move your car in the evening so that it is 'safe' for the next day. If you try in the morning you'll have a much harder time finding a spot.

I live in a brownstone and I have Directv. In fact, there are at least 10 dishes up on the roof for all the apartments on my side of the street. Anyway, when they installed it they dropped the wires down the back of the building. My apartment has a front and back exposure so it really wasn't a problem. I'm pretty sure the installer said they are not allowed to drop wires on the front of the building.

Anyone else have problems on the Path this morning? We got to 14th St. around 8am and they made everyone exit the train. I could barely hear the announcement as to why we had to get off but everyone had to exit at 14th. That's the first time I have seen anything like that happen in 4 years of riding the Path.

How do you find out where your polling place is? I got my voter registration/ID card in the mail a couple weeks ago but it has no mention of where I should go to vote. It says I'm in Ward 5, District 16.

I wonder where you came up with that 4 minutes figure. By my calculations, thats how long the train stays in the station at Hoboken. While i don't think the delay is tremendous, it is certainly NOT 4 minutes.



I agree it takes longer than 4 minutes. I think it is more like an additional 8-10 minutes to go from Newport to Christopher on weekends than during a weekday commute. And that is on top of the more limited weekend schedule (ie. 10, 15, or 30 minute wait for the train). I pretty much avoid going into the city at all on weekends.

Re: What the hell just happened on Erie Street?!

The same type of parties/events take place almost every Saturday night at the charter school on 9th St. I have the pleasure of living in the neighborhood and often hear thumping bass and loud crowds into the wee hours of the morning. I have called the cops on many occasions because of the noise and disorderly conduct of the people attending events there. One one occasion it took 3 patrol cars to get the crowd under control. My friend parked in the school's lot over the weekend and had his car vandalized overnight. Luckily it was nothing serious but could have been a lot worse. It is because of these types of things that my wife and I won't even consider buying property in JC.

Like I said, it will not affect the *average* user. The cap is to protect the majority of customers. A few high end users in a given area can really bog down the network for everyone else.

NEW YORK - Comcast Corp., the nation's second-largest Internet service provider, Thursday said it would set an official limit on the amount of data subscribers can download and upload each month.
ADVERTISEMENT

On Oct. 1, the cable company will update its user agreement to say that users will be allowed 250 gigabytes of traffic per month, the company announced on its Web site.


250 GB is a tremendous amount of data and will not affect the average user. Unless you are someone that downloads or streams HD video all day long it will not be an issue.
