Re: Jersey City Residents Decry Offensive Murals Commissioned by the City

Is the artist complaining of Native American descent? That could bring some sort of real arguement. Or is she just taking offense and answering for all Native Americans.
Seems like someone is sour and did not get pick to create a mural.

You don't really need a broker but suggest to take a visit if you are able to and look around town. JC is pretty big and the 1k rent you are seeing seems kind of low placing you at the outskirts of the city which you will definitely need a car to commute from back and forth. If not the waterfront/ downtown area you'll need to look for places closest to the light rail or path stations to be able to get around without a car.

That sounds like it might be a crack in the cast iron tub not the porcelain! In that case, it's not repairable. Good luck, from what I've heard and seen on TV, even just the finish is neither easy nor cheap to do right.


Luckily it is only the porcelain that cracked, don't want any more damage or the iron getting rusted. I found a guy in NY via craigslist but the pick up and delivery will cost more than the actual fix.

THIS. Currently, Newark is reporting winds of 12 knots from 310, gusting to 21 knots. Peak wind have registered at 26 knots.

With winds that strong, all smaller jets will get routed to 11/29. Even larger jets may get that runway assigned.

I was coming and going on the turnpike around 4:30 and 7:00pm, both times (around the airport) the planes passed right above us before touching down. They were so low maybe 50'-75' feet, felt like they could easely clip the boundary gate with their wheels.

Unfortunately it was underwhelming at best and I like the work of the artist. I always thought that would be a great place to display something that would be an iconic symbol of the city, now (to me) it only looks like an unfinished piece at best. Maybe I'm missing something.

With so many rentals coming up offering a lower rent price might just be a strategy to get people in faster, they can always raise the rent after the yearly lease is up. But like some others have posted there are various types of incentives that are offered when you go talk to and ask the right questions.

B.H. is state designated but what I've heard from the old timers in the neighborhood is that there was a movement to make it a historic area like the others in JC, the neighborhood fought against it and won. There is a retired JJ reporter which touched on the subject a while back in one of the neighborhood meetings. Forgot his name but he lives on Astor and seemed to be pretty knowledgeable on the subject.

You're thinking of Earl Morgan. I don't recall his stance on the issue. However, yes, there was a movement against the designation. This was borne of fear based on the same ignorance exhibited by Yvonne.

What an historic designation does is prevent the ugly cheap development of buildings that do not fit the local look and feel. This preserves the character and value of the homes.

It would only benefit the area to revisit the status and try to get it adopted. The sooner regulations are in place, the more likely that new development will be of the type that is positive for the neighborhood...


Yes, Mr. Morgan. I don't think he is a fan of having a historic designation but I can not speak for him just know from comments he's made. I'll ask he's thoughts on the subject next time I see him.
Overall it is a good article for Bergen Hill.

Really hate when civil servants abuse the system because of some sense of power or authority, I'm not saying all but some and those few give a bad rep to the rest. I've seen police working security in the Newport bestbuy parking in the handicap spots like it's their own private parking. When I was in the military having respect and proper manners with civilians was a big push.

Not sure how it could've sold since closing takes a couple of weeks. I do know there was an offer being placed for 560k right after the open house. It could've fell through but even if it did go for 475 is almost double what the owner paid for.

Well, I guess he will be renting a garage on Mountain Road, there are many private garages there. I do not think the mayor will circle the block like the rest of JC folks waiting for a parking space to appear.

Can I ask how the Mayor is taking away parking from JC folks?
Parking is always a problem in a city (unfortunately) that's one of the reasons people move to the burbs. If he is using a parking lot it only means that the problem exists, has existed and that's why the parking lots exist Serving its purpose. I am one of those people that have to circle the block and it would be great if there was resident parking permits.

Saying she inspired someone is giving her unearned credit. My opinion is that the article inspired her to commit this small act of vandalism probably to get some notoriety or more press, in that case it did. Best thing to do is not to even bother commenting, I tried but failed. Is there nothing better to write but the thoughts of a 22 yr old girl that apparently hasn't even left home. There is so much more going on in this city that deserves the press. Haters gotta hate.

Consider the source, but there are some pretty passionate comments about the state of Ocean Ave. and surrounding areas at NJ.com today.



Just read the comments, and it very concerning, especially the comment about so many complaints being filed and no one does anything about it.

We are excited about potentially moving to the area because we think JC has just as much to offer as BK or Queens, and more affordable. Our real estate agent told us to stay away from Ocean Ave. Any other sections of Greenville to avoid?
Thanks all for the links!


It all depends on your tolerance level but the formula is fairly easy the further out you go from DT the more questionable it gets. There are many different sections outside of downtown with pockets of great neighborhoods. Find yourself a good realtor that knows the area, search the many threads here from past prospectors (myself included), walk the areas both day and night time, and you just have to have a gut feeling about the place. You can find the many different neighborhoods in NextDoor. Good luck with your search!!!

No prob bodhipooh, but my description was for 92 Astor which is a 2 level + garden and a completely different realtor/investor from the other properties. 13 Astor(renovated), 71 Astor (renovated) and 75 Astor (currently being renovated) have all been done by the same investors and all are 3 levels + garden level. The contractor did a very nice job with the details on 13 and they even repointed the brick unlike 92 which was just painted over. They also did a nice job on 71 and am looking forward to seeing 75 complete.

The original owner bought it a couple of years ago to flip, weren't able to finish the Reno and finally decided to sell it. They got a realtor/investor who bought it and is finishing up the flip, apparently sold it already since it never went to market.
I personally have not seen the inside but know they made it into a four bedroom kitchen/living room lower level, 2bdr stoop level, 2bdr top level. Not sure how many bathrooms.

Seems like a common practice for some realtors around these areas is to get the listing by charging the sellers lower a commission. They'll either have a buyer lined up or wait till they get one so they get the buyers side of the commission by working with both parties. Really shady stuff, sometimes they will not even place the property on the Hudson county MLS or answer other realtors when they call about the property. It hurts the value of the home by not giving it a fair competitive edge on the market, but sellers are lured in by the pitch that they are saving money on commission fees. In reality they are losing much more money by not being visible and eliminating access to many more buyers.
