Re: Moving to Jersey City next fall -- building suggestions?

if you like government corruption, trash, sub par restaurants, the shit show that is the PATH, and a list that could continue on forever.... COME ON DOWN.

Stay in New York.

Moving here from the City was the biggest mistake I've ever made... but the nightmare ends on monday when the moving truck comes.

Its nice to have all these things - yes. But it could have been executed better.

For example - On newark ave between Monmouth and 4th st there are now 12 garbage cans.

Monmouth residents between 3rd and 4th have been asking for a second can to put infront of Franks pizza, where 90% of the streets trash originates, but no luck.

I tried to move one but there are bolted down - at least they did something right.

Re: Downtown: Fire destroys car in Pep Boys' garage at 2 a.m.

So the store manager just got back to me about 10 minutes ago (8:55pm) to tell me to go ahead and have my car detailed and they would reimburse me at the store. Someone had recommended that I have both air filters replaced, and I suggested this to the manager and he rudely refused - "the detailing is all we're willing to do"

I'm not a gear head or anything, but to me it makes sense to replace the air filters both under the hood and inside the car. Anyone know?

Also - any recommendations on detailing places?

I called the store and was pretty much laughed at.

Called corporate pep boys and filed a claim. They said they would call back within 48 hours. We will see.

my car was there at that time - when I picked it up it had this weird smell of burned rubber. I didn't notice any damage to the building at all and they didn't say anything to me.

1. #OOPS# you for talking about snow.

2. Last winter - parking rules were not enforced from Christmas to the end of March. You would think they would use the alternate side time to plow out the ice rink on each side of the street but they don't.


Get rid of your car or put it in a garage.

Re: New Construction on Newark Ave & 3rd Street Between Monmouth & Bright

Last month was the first time we held our meeting at a location other than PS #5, and judging from the overwhelming positive feedback we received, its safe to say that our March meeting will again be held at the Lamp Post. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.

A hot topic during last month?s meeting was a new 48 unit development proposed for the corner of Newark Avenue and Third Street. 292-294 Newark Avenue to be exact.

Resized Image

This month, Chuck Harrington from Connell Foley LLP, the law firm representing Applied Development will be on hand to discuss all of the project details. As everyone knows, this section of Newark Avenue is already extremely congested, and parking is currently very difficult. So it is important to note that the proposed 48 unit development will depend largely on street parking, as it is only required to provide 10 parking spaces per Jersey City zoning laws.

I encourage everyone in the area to stop by and hear first-hand from the project representative, and let your opinions be heard.

We will also be discussing Newark Avenue Redevelopment Phase III which has just recently gotten underway, as well as The Village Weekend which is slated for the middle of May.

Similar to last month?s meeting, the first round of drinks is on the VNA for association members, and Michele and the Lamp Post will be providing some snacks for the table. Thanks again Michele!






-------------------------------------------------







This will definitely help gentrify that area - but is going to create a parking nightmare, when it is already bad enough. This never should have been approved without at least 35-40 spaces.

A month later, you sent your landlord a certified letter saying that you intended to vacate.


Actually this one wasn't for me.

As for what the camels back breaking straw was - after the storm there was an old oil talk floating around in the water in the basement, leaking oil everywhere and banging up against the electric breakers. It was a total fire hazard - which reinvigorated the need to look into the fire escape thing further.

The city's landlord tenant office is a joke.

The director there has no concept of the laws and procedures.

If we didn't have heat - I'm sure they could help. But for anything other than the most basic interaction - they have no idea what they are talking about, and have contradicted the law, and themselves numerous times.

The advice on this issues was:

"I?ve seen the lease and the rent increase notice. You may fight the rent increase by refusing to pay it on Nov. 1, after when the landlord may take you to court for refusing to pay the increase, and a judge will decide. Be sure to address all your issues and defenses at the trial."

In my opinion, a city department to handle landlord tenant relations would provide information and advice more in line with ljnjlaw.com. I know they aren't attorneys, but I expected more.

apartment is not under rent control, and yes I'm willing to fight it.

This rent increase comes 2 days after we notified the landlord that we spoke to the city about an illegal unit in the building that we just recently found out about.

What would you consider an unconscionable rent increase?

Dollar amount, not legal jargon - already have the NJ tenant laws at my disposal.

go here http://tax1.co.monmouth.nj.us/cgi-bin ... &out_type=0&district=0906 type in the address of the building and get the owners name. Then reverse 411.com them and see if you get a phone number.

You should have a bunch of friends over, set up shop outside and all silently stare blankly in his direction. There should be at least 10 of you.

Maybe you could post a picture of the crime scene here without the guy in it so we can all see exactly what you're talking about.

Yeah this is nicky.

He was selling drugs out of abbeys for a while until they banned him for doing so.

I see him almost every day hanging around in front of the Barge Inn. The cops have come and searched him a few times, but to no avail.

He tries to bum cigarettes off me a couple times a week.

"Rent is 1950 plus utilities, 1 bedroom, 1 bath, new stainless steel appliances, dishwasher - but you can't flush your toilet paper."


Get the scott's brand paper that is meant for septic systems - it disintegrates as soon as the water in the bowl starts spinning.

Call landlord tenant relations - this has to be some sort of violation. Even if the landlord says its the city's problem - maybe you can get an inspector to at least confirm that to you.

after reading all of this and seeing some photos - i finally took a ride over there today. Drove through the entire park because I didn't know exactly where it was. After seeing it - all I have to say is REALLY? Ruin the views from the park? REALLY? This takes up a tiny sliver of the park. I might not be a huge fan of the design - but who cares? There is a lot more park and a lot of other spots with a great view.

REALLY?
