Re: Rent Late Fee?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I had understood the 5-day extension law as pertaining only to those of Social Security age (not sure if SS disability counts.)

Reading the excerpted sections of the act it seems that is also what they are attempting to say. I must say, the law is VERY clumsily worded.

1. Who would say ALL people are protected, and then add
2. Only seniors are protected.

I think my former understanding remains correct...only seniors.

In this month therefore, "regular" people must pay by September 4th (the first business day) and seniors get to wait until September 11th.

Baroness Thatcher was never PM (the 'cash for honours' scandal never got to be so bad that incumbents were giving titles out to themselves ).

I think louche may be referring to Her Grace, Margaret, the Dutchess of Thatcher... or perhaps the OTHER Princess Margaret, the one with the REAL power.

New York City has proven the Rent Control works. It has also been the rule of law in Jersey City for more than the last 30 years but unscrupulous landlords aided by corrupt city officials tend to look the other way when rent are raised sjy high during vacancies...in JC, this is strictly illegal. Rents can be raised each year only 4% or the CPI, whichever is less.
The waterfront development has been "exempted" from rent control.

Re: New Condo Complex in Jersey City Sets Record for Penthouse Sales

Gotta LOVE "Real-Estate-Speak."

You see, if they announced BOTH the price and the buyer, one could check up and see if it true.

I'm surprised they didn't say $20 Million for a STUDIO while they were at it..

Yep, same Hovnanian who made overpriced junk...only now it seems they are WAY overpriced.

These developers will do ANYTHING to keep potential buyers from realizing the market has gone belly-up.

Probably evey realtor and developer all over the country is saying: "Yes the market is in a disastrous downturn EVERYWHERE BUT HERE...after all some unnamed movie star just paid a '$$JILLION$$'" bucks for an apartment at DROOPY TOWERS.
ANYTHING to get the name of their complex into print.

Yes indeed,

It's FAR cheaper to put up bikeway signs than to actually construct a bikeway.
Jersey City has done it again the Jersey City Way...hand over taxpayer money to some generous friend who is not required actually to DO anything.

Hmmm,
It's $3 a month less than Newport Fitnesss which has a large pool.
Seems priced too high for no pool.

Do they have a decent PEC DECK (Newport doesn't and won't get one. )

The SMALLNESS of those Shore Condos seems to be a universal compaint...seems residents have to fill their terraces with overflowing junk in order to fit in.

It looks anything BUT luxury living.

I think the Newport gym is just fine...clean and pretty well equipped, although there's no pec deck...

A bit overpriced prehaps, but better than any other gym I've ever belonged to (about 5 of them.)

Gosh,

Without felons, where would Jersey City find people to run for office and manage campaigns...paging Gerry McCann. Sheesh, what's a little sex conviction, fraud, or mob involvement when you're talking about politics in a city with mayors that are jailed or mayors that play in the streets drunk and nude...par for the course.

Welcome to Jersey City!

Re: ideas for more parks in newport
Home away from home
Home away from home


So basically, the question is: "Given the accepted plan, the top map, where could one put parkland."
Answer: There is no room for parkland..

Another way to phrase the issue is:
1. Lefrak will not build any parks.
2. Therefore, there will NOT BE any parks.

The technique is to keep moving "the (prospective) park" further and further into the future...and to the North. Eventually, there will be a postage sized lot left suited only for building THE LAST HURRAH, aka, the CHENEY!
The Lefrak can turn round and say to the Planning Commission, "but YOU approved every square inch" as indeed they will have.

I guess they can put a ping pong table in the middle of the top of the Duane Reade garage surrounded by 100 parked cars and count half the building as a park. Probably those "kiddie rides" in the Mall Food Court makes 1/2 the Mall count as open parkland.

Jersey City has the best zoning regulations that money can buy.

I'm sure that those who paid MIGHTILY for views in the SHORE "CLUB" will just LOVE a 45 story rental tower in their faces.
Lefrak's technique is to start building in the back and progressively block the views...those in the James Monroe learned that lesson the hard way when Towers of America and the PACIFIC cut them off from their river views.

Putting the tallest building on the river is just plain stupid.

Re: Dollar Buses
Home away from home
Home away from home


Some of these vans are a menace. There are ALWAYS several that lay in wait along 6th Street between the Mall and Shoprite/BJ's in spite of NO STANDING signs galore. Since there are no lights where people must cross it is imperative to see oncoming traffic.
These semi-parked vans obscure the view so a pedestrian cannot see oncoming traffic and must just pray and step into traffic and sooner or later there will be a car veering around the bus just in time to kill someone.

They DON'T obey traffic laws and are generally a menace when several of them play leapfrog around a Port Authority bus to steal its fares. This game of tag with multi-ton vehicles makes Bergenline Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard even more dangerous than they need to be.

IF the vans are allowed, the penalties should be trebled those for a regular car and they MUST be made to have adequate insurance or face being impounded by police and perhaps given to social organizations, senior citizens buildings, or the like.
