Guitar Lessons for kids
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


My 8 year old is interested in taking guitar lessons. I'm close to the heights/journal square area and looking either in Jersey City or nearby towns. Excluding Hoboken because there's no parking and it's not worth a boot lol

Thanks!

Indoor running tracks?

I was wondering if there were any indoor running tracks in the area. I have severe allergies and it causes asthma/breathing problems, so running outdoors this time of year is really hard on me.

I go to the PR parade with my little girl and have never had any problems or have seen any kind of rowdiness. Not like the disgusting drunkenness that starts a 9am for St. Patrick's day. That's when I choose choose to stay away! Your comments make ashamed to share the same city/state.

JC kiddie soccer

I know the jersey city soccer association closed out early for munchkin soccer. I'm looking for places that offer for 4-5 year olds, my little girl is dying to play soccer. Does anyone know any others in the nearby area (I'm not trying to drive 30+ mins)

I wasn't sure exactly where to post this, so I figured the general discussion would be fine.

Makes sense...they used to smoke outside the emergency room. I'm asthmatic so if I'm going to the emergency room, I don't want to have to worry about an asthma attack from smoke inhalation too

I see these people outside my house. If I don't say anything to them, they'll just let their dog crap and pee in from of my stairs. I almost saw a lady who was ready to walk away, i told her she better pick it up....you just learn to walk with your head down.

My friend lived near there all her life and there was never a problem. Central Avenue is close enough to walk to, so there are places to eat nearby. Again, as you know, there is no perfect place to live where crime never happens, but from my experience it this isn't a bad area.

I live near there. It's a nice area, I have some really nice neighbors. Like someone else said it's residential, so there are more families and less nightlife, but the heights isn't isolated lol, so going to other places for nightlife like hoboken or downtown isn't really a problem. It's also pretty convenient if you travel to Manhattan. I've lived in the heights since I was 12 and by the slopes since I was 16, so from my experience I would say they area is nice.

I totally agree, parent involvement makes a big difference. I grew up in private school, and it was the parents that volunteered who really made a big difference and were a big help.

All I eat from there are the pizza slices or chicken rolls....their chicken rolls are yummy

I went to visit some school. The one I liked the best was the Resurrection school in downtown, not only academically but socially and spiritually.

I pass west side ave frequently. Your more likely to see less expensive places to eat like Cluck U Chicken or some pizzerias. Unless they were coming out of Puccini's, but why would you pay cash at Puccini's anyway.

I'd be leaning toward the landlord. It wouldn't be the first time something like that happened.

Well the way I see it walkin around on West Side at that time of night and with that amount of cash...you can't be up to any good. Not that anyone deserves to be robbed though.

As far as being near Hispanics...well, I'm Hispanic so being near a particular ethnic group is not bad. If your speaking more along the lines of diversity, then I would agree, there are more diverse areas. Like Hoboken, I wouldn't exactly call it "diverse". Generally, the closer you get to union city, the less diverse it becomes, it's mostly Hispanic there. But I agree with the gang part. New York Ave is not the safest area. There were people from some Union City gang...I think they're called DDP next door to my in-laws. Their gang in Union city was actually featured on TV! Of course we said hi, but kept our distance....we don't want to be on their sh*t list.

So i have an appointment to go visit St. Anne's and the Resurrection School. I know people who came from st. Mary's elementary (now the Resurrection School), and I actually went to St. Mary's HS with one of the teachers there. So we'll see. I like OLC but from what i hear they're a little out of my price range, and let's not forget the waiting list, which really does me no good since this is for September. She's 4 btw, so t his is for Pre-K 4. Hoboken catholic is another choice, my only peeve is going down to hoboken from the heights is traffic city lol.

I'm looking into catholic schools for my child (not too far). Does anyone have any experiences/recommendations? THe two that I'm looking at in particular are St. Annes in the heights and The Resurrection schools in downtown.

The Heights is not overrun with gangs, but just like any area, even downtown and Hoboken, there are not-so-great areas. I moved from Hoboken to the Heights, we're near the slopes near Manhattan. I have to admit it's not so bad, in my area. Lots of Families and kids. The kids play outside, I see them playing manhunt (hide and seek) when it get a little darker out. I would stay away from areas like New York Ave. I know people who live there near Griffith, and they wouldn't want to walk outside once it gets darker. I honestly think the Heights is no different than any other division of a city, there are good parts and not so good parts. But ultimately the choice is yours. Good Luck!
