When in heat mode, that fireplace will run you about $0.22 per hour (assuming it is 1,500 Watts)


If you want cheap heat.. you can go old school

You can get 40 lbs bags of washed anthracite shipped to you...

They should just put a "spa" room in the new courthouse that is being built on the site.

There was another one that operated for years right across from the courthouse. It was in one the buildings that was recently demolished. They had a neon sign in the window advertising services at one point.

How many units is your building? Curious if they will come after me next.

I know someone who was given 10 days to put a fire escape on his building. It is registered with the DCA and has been inspected every 5 years without an issue.

DCA at least gave me 6 months to address my fire-escape issue (they ruled in 1999 I didn't need one, then changed their minds years later).

I didn't even know Sabrin was running again.... Didn't he run as a republican in the last primary he participated in?

I have gotten in the habit of not paying attention to the statewide elections, since whomever wins the Dem primary wins the general election.

The newer models are made out of plastic vs. the iron pumps. It is these new ones that have been failing.

What brand is it?


Flo Tec (from Home Depot). I have had problems with the float switch jamming and repeated motor failures. The motors get ground faults, tripping the GFI.

I just ordered a different brand off of Amazon.

Hopefully it holds up better.

Got emailed a press release from Fulop's office about a new North District station to be built. It stated that the new station will have parking. It doesn't state where in the Heights it will be located.

Eminent domain being used? Or is an existing city owned property going to be used for the new station?

Latest model run showing what is left of Florence passing directly over us next week. Most of the rain though is North of us. Note: Gif ends before showing the storm reaching NYC metro area.

So right now Florence looks for us just some rainy, crappy weather. For South Carolina to Virginia, this storm looks to be epic.

The models and the Weatherbell people show the storm coming in at a cat 4 and then stalling. Over the following 3 to 4 days, the region could see up to 4 feet of rain!

For us, what we get will depend how far inland Florence goes before it heads North. The GFS at one point put the center of the storm dead over top of us, with rain totals near 15 inches.

The Euro model puts the storm farther inland, sparing us the worst of the rain.

The 5 models I checked all show a major hurricane headed for the Carolinas.

Edit: The GFS now shows Florence stalling off North Carolina for about three days, then it appears to head out to sea.

GFS updated this afternoon and no longer has Florence turning out to see. It biases though farther North than the Euro model, putting a weak Cat 2 landfall just North of the Chesapeake. This would direct storm surge into the Delaware bay.

If this scenario happened, we would be spared devastating winds and storm surge. The rain totals, would be impressive though.

The rest of the models update overnight.

The models have been schizophrenic over the past two days. They can't figure out if the storm is going out to sea or heading for the East coast.

The Euro and the GFS had the storm as of yesterday going out to sea. Only the Canadian had it coming to the East coast. This morning, everything is back hitting or coming very near the East coast.

All three models put the storm at a Cat 2 when it gets near land Thursday - Friday.

The Canadian is slow moving storm which will make a rough surf, surge, and some rain storm for us.

The GFS is like the Canadian, but puts the storm a little farther South.

The Euro has the storm actually coming a shore, which later will bring a hell of a lot of rain, after the storm tracks North.

Multiple weather models are showing hurricane Florence showing up off the North American Eastern seaboard mid month. Unfortunately for us, there is a big blob of above normal temperature water off the coast, which can feed the hurricane energy.

The Weatherbell people think that the storm has a good chance of making it to the East coast due to the interactions with a high pressure system forming North of us.

Later this week, the Weatherbell crew thinks they will have a better handle on what is happening with the storm track. Hopefully, it will curve out to see before getting near us.

I wonder what the land price point for that is. Clearly DT reached it some time ago, there hasn't been a BB built here in a long time. There's some price that the BB developers say "nope", even though they probably could still outbid a nicer project because their construction is so damn cheap.

This is the DT infill: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/323 ... -NJ-07302/162085086_zpid/

Haven't seen too many details on the new trade agreement, except for:

Mexico will raise the minimum wage for car manufacturers to something close to $16 per hour. The new Mexican government minimum wage increase are part of its platform. I think auto assembly workers wage is currently about $3 per hour.

Countries like China can't ship product through Mexico to avoid tariffs. This was a major issue with the US trade negotiators. Something has to be made in Mexico to be tariff free.


A Chinese aluminum company stockpiled more than $2 billion worth of aluminum in Mexico with intentions of shipping it to the U.S. to avoid tariffs on Chinese exports, according to a Wall Street Journal report on the scheme. Records linked China Zhongwang Holdings (chzhf, -4.26%) with the stockpile, much of which has since been moved to Vietnam following a U.S. trade group’s petition to the Commerce Department, the WSJ said.

That actually did kill my dad, very slowly. He contracted a rare Hepatitis (E or some such) in Ukraine when he didn't want to offend his hosts even though he saw them filling the bottle from the tap. He eventually died of cirrhosis and the liver cancer it caused. (No, he was not a drinker at all)



Yikes!

I thought what my wife got on her business trip to India was bad (eventually leads to fatal cancer). Her issue was curable with very expensive and physically brutal dose of antibiotics.

Re: I've seen pre-construction sales but this is ridiculous! 323 7th St
#28

What is propping it up are the very low interest rates due to Federal Reserve intervention, lots of foreign money coming into the USA, and Boomer generation investment capital.

The Fed is now trying to unwind its balance sheet and the Boomers are retiring (though many are staying in the work force beyond age 67). When the Boomers retire, a lot of investment money is going to dry up as it is converted into safe stuff like T-bills. A lot of real estate will hit the market as Boomers need to cash out and move to smaller (cheaper) homes / condos. Gen X is too small and Gen Y has waaay too much debt to absorb it all.

As for the foreign money... some of what is coming in doesn't care about positive returns. It is "money getting out of Dodge". If the investors only loses half of it, it is better than losing all of it back in his/her home country. Real estate is where a good chunk of that money is going.
