Are you seriously arguing a low intro rate as comparison? Or are you complaining Costco doesn't have an similar intro rate?

Bohdipooh said it very well about the difference. I recall there's one more thing about Costco, they have a cashback Mastercard that adds 2 years to most warrantys of anything purchased with it anywhere.


Minor correction: Costco partners with Visa, not Mastercard. Their Visa card partnership includes additional cash back bonus (bonus ranges from 1% to 4%, depending on transaction type) and it is very much worth it. I get close to $200 every year on just the credit card cash back feature.

As of this writing, Costco only accepts cash, checks, debit cards, or Visa credit cards. In the past, their partnership for credit cards was AMEX. Prior to that (15+ years ago?) it was a Discover partnership.

How do I find out if the boiler is hot or not???



The boiler should have a temperature gauge and a pressure If the boiler has been running and the temperature is up in the 180 degree range, adding cold water could crack the heating block. You'd need a whole new boiler.

There is plenty of parking downtown - you just don't always get it free.


Downtown is a small portion of JC, and the other areas mostly have much poorer quality and quantity of public transit options. We can, and must, do better.

No. My lease isn't that aggressive. I have over time had to put in additional caveats:

No turkey fryers allowed.

Tenant will not demand that "humane" or "organic" pest control methods be used to treat the apartment and / or common areas.


LOL, it would be funny to see a long list of such specific clauses that landlords have had to come up with!

Because it's far less politically risky doing nothing than something you can be targeted for. Lets say the city makes a deal with a developer to build a parking structure on city land with the developer fronting the money and taking a large share of profits. I can see all sorts of "defenders of the people" making political hay with that. Why risk it?

Hoboken did something like that in the early 2000s (but it wasn't low cost). It was an automated parking garage that would stow your car using a lift system. The original plan was to not have attendants. It was to be 100% automated.

The system when it was first implemented kept making headlines of having destroyed people cars. One example I remember is some poor guy's trunk opened up and the lifting system caught it and launched his car off the lift, dropping it down multiple stories.

The only reason BJ memberships can be had for so low is because their product selection is crap, and none of their stock can compare to that of Costco in quality or value.

Comparing BJs to Costco is like comparing C-Town to Whole Foods... they are only similar in that they are both part of the same broad category.

I am not trying to argue or defend the ownership of SUVs (people can own whatever they choose!) but your stance just comes across as petty and misguided when your justifications are based on misconceptions.

You can keep spouting your crank, but it is nothing more than shaking your fist at the sky: you will accomplish nothing because your argument and logic are not based on facts, just feelings and misconceptions.


You are quite the character... when the error in your logic is pointed out, you turn to personal attacks.

I am not advocating for a parking free-for-all, nor am I arguing against higher fees! In fact, I think JC parking permits are ridiculously low ($15/year!!) but any change in regulations has to be rooted on good, sound policy and/or reason. Spouting obviously wrong logic or erroneous facts is not a way to get people to agree to your point.

Re: Have you evicted a non-paying tenant in Jersey City/Hudson County?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I did an eviction about 8 years ago. I took them to court multiple times, but couldn't evict because they would come up with the money on the court date, including court and my attorney costs. I have it in my lease that I can collect these costs "As Additional Rent". If you don't have the quoted statement in your lease, you can't demand that these costs be reimbursed in landlord / tenant court.

The final court visit, they did a no-show and I was given a default judgement to have them evicted. The eviction process takes a while. The Sheriffs office will "take possession" of the apartment by changing the locks. The tenant will then have to arrange to pick up their personal items. After a certain time (don't recall the length) the Sheriffs office can move the personal items out of the apartment to the curb. Once the tenant's possessions are gone, the apartment is returned to the landlord.

The tenants in my case did a midnight move-out, which made the Sheriff intervention unnecessary.

Years before that, I took another tenant to court over a dispute over repairs and rent. My attorney informed me that unless the tenant put the rent into an escrow account, the court will not look kindly on the tenant's claims. In this case, never made it in front of the judge. The tenant, after consulting an attorney, paid up.

Sometimes it takes a few tries to get all the air out. Air may be trapped in lower radiators, ans as you bleed and water cycles in, the air from lower units/rooms will work it's way up. Then you can bleed again.

Yes, this is great news, was definitely weirdly excited when I realized there was traffic coming towards me from the opposite side.
Although, I'm disappointed that they didn't restore that service road that peeled off onto Baldwin that let one skip the lines at the light.

Maybe its a part of the extended 8 year closure plan!?
