Re: van vorst park and hamilton park flood question

I know Montgomery flooded as far up as Barrow (at least) during Sandy. The water was up to the car windows. I don't know how it was past Barrow or on Barrow. We live in a garden-level apartment on Varick and we didn't see any flooding at all during Sandy or Irene.

Re: New/Mom's group downtown

I know this thread is long dead, but here it goes...

I'm pregnant with my first child and would love to have access to a group of people going through similar experiences (especially for the opportunity to perhaps buy their used baby stuff). The activity requirement and the dues seem reasonable. What I don't like though is that this seems to be a mommy group rather than a parent group. Are there fathers involved/allowed?

oh GOD, people ... you need to learn to read (and think, but hey, you cannot have it all).

JC has municipal rent control - Chapter 260 of our beloved city's great municipal code. That code states the following .... drumroll please ....

"260-3. - Allowable increases. [Amended 3-13-1986 by Ord. No. C-183]

A.
At the expiration of a lease or at the termination of a lease of a periodic tenant, no landlord may request or receive a percentage increase in rent which is greater than 4% or the percentage difference between the consumer price index three months prior to the expiration or termination of the lease and three months prior to the commencement of the lease term, whichever is less. For a periodic tenant or for a tenant whose lease term shall be less than one year, said tenant shall not suffer or be caused to pay more than one rent increase in any twelve-month period, commencing 15 months prior to and ending three months prior to, the effective date of the proposed increase, whichever is less."

From that you guys should be able to figure out how wrong you are ... (get off the booze man or whateve' you are on ...)


Sheesh, why so nasty? As an editor, I'm pretty confident my reading skills are sky high. And to your argument: sure, annual increases are limited to some extent for existing tenants but when tenants change, rent can increase as much as the owner wants, which usually brings the rent for that property inline with market value, which is based on the area's property taxes (among other factors).

DANG IT.

Congrats Jersey City. YOU let the city take away that $40 bucks OBAMA wanted YOU to have.

RENTERS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE ON SPENDING ISSUES. THEY DON'T PAY PROPERTY TAXES. I'm sick of annual tax increases voted on by folks who don't pay into the system.

NOT FAIR. I say introduce special fees for renter residents who send their kids to the public schools. This way they have a vested interest in keeping costs down too. TAXES SUCK.

Public Question - Jersey City
78/96 81.25%
Vote Count Percent
- Yes 2,086 62.29%
- No 1,263 37.71%
Total 3,349 100.00%


how do you figure renters don't pay property taxes?? Don't you think rents and rent hikes are in direct correlation with property taxes and property tax hikes? By your reasoning, Jersey City rents should be much much lower.

My family has been eating there for decades! It's a wonderful, homey, uncomplicated dinner where we always know our waiter by name and they always ask how my grandparents are doing. I couldn't recommend it more.

We had a bad experience with this place. We thought we would give them a try. Ordered a pizza. Delivery was slow and when the pie was delivered the delivery guy had tipped the box allowing the cheese to run off the pizza. We called to complain and were hung up on. We brought the pie to the store to complain and after getting our money back were told to get the hell out.

I understand that anyone can have one bad experience with a pizza but the nasty attitude of the staff insured we would never return.


Not a chance! The staff there are the friendliest bunch. I'm not a huge fan of the food (but I am very particular about pizza), we frequented there simply because they're so welcoming. They learned my and my fiance's names after two visits. And always greeted us by name after that.

Re: Taqueria

I've been meaning to check out Taqueria for well over a year now but based on this thread, my motivation has been diminished. I have no opinion of the restaurant, having never been there but it has been recommended to me based on the food and the food alone. If that's all you want from a restaurant--good food--that's fine. If you want friendly service with your food, that's fine too.

My feeling is that, ultimately, being friendly isn't that hard and being unfriendly can cost you customers. The proprietors have a choice and, if what is written here is true, they've made one.

Re: Van Vorst v. Hamilton Park?

thanks for the responses. we've decided to make the move to vv. i will very much miss our current neighborhood but I can't do another winter with my current 15-minute walk to the PATH everyday (and that's if I'm moving fast). we're moving forward on a nice homey (read: not recently renovated) place with w/d and small backyard on a quiet side street for 1800. From what I've read here, that doesn't seem too unreasonable.

Van Vorst v. Hamilton Park?
#10
Newbie
Newbie


Considering a move from the Hamilton Park area to the Van Vorst Park area. I'm partial to the former just because it's where we've lived and I feel a loyalty. Also, Hamilton Park this past sunny weekend was a delight. Wondering what people's thoughts on here are about the two different neighborhoods. Pros? Cons? Van Vorst prices seem to be higher.

Another question: what is a reasonable price for a not-renovated 1-bdrm with small backyrd. Oh, and there's a w/d in apartment which would be a first for me!!

Thanks!

Re: Paulus Hook Crime Last Night

The Lenape. Ha! Maybe not that far back. My point was that anyone living in Paulus Hook shouldn't be surprised by crime since it was pretty rampant not much more than a decade ago. That's where we went to do naughty stuff in high school since it was a bit of a no man's land.

You do realize it was their neighborhood before it was yours.

Re: JC to Bayonne???
#13

Newbie


I grew up in bayonne and spent many a summer as a camper at camp kadima at the JCC. that was in the 80s so I can't speak of it now but it was a good program then. As for Bayonne's reputation, it's just that...a reputation. No different then jersey's reputation t/o the country. it's been 14 years since i lived there full time but i would definitely move back if the commute to nyc was easier. the commute is easy (light rail to PATH) but it is not swift by any means. it's a 1/2 hour from bayonne to hoboken via the light rail. i'd be happy to answer more specific questions about bayonne.
