Re: 2017 Reval ~ Property Inspections

Not too shy to talk


I've heard arguments for both sides of the coin (letting in the inspectors vs. not letting them in) but neither being very convincing.
Does anyone have any strong opinions one way or the other, or experienced this in the past, here or elsewhere?

Speaking with a friend involved with the project there, my understanding was that they are planning a slew of private events to start off with in order to hone their game so to speak (work out all the kinks of running a place like that) prior to going public.

Re: Rental Prices out of control - DTJC

I'm curious about this myself. Especially with the new J-Square high-rises going up, it will interesting to see how they compare to the ones downtown in terms of price and vacancy.

At least one group of new high rises seem to be doing well though. I delivered something to Cast Iron the other day and upon asking, the concierge told me since they opened in March they are already close to 80% capacity.

I imagine the 2 new ones going up now are expecting equal demand. Prices start in the upper 2k range and go beyond 5k pending the room. I overheard in the lobby they have a $50 per pet fee per month which surprised me...sort of.

Re: Drivers and Crosswalks
#8

Not too shy to talk


I've had cars pass mine while I've stopped at a crosswalk for crossing pedestrians (one example - that down hill cross walk under the turnpike at 7th street and Newark). Very scary, thankfully the person crossing was being alert.

Here's a link to the NJ Pedestrian Law.

http://www.nj.gov/oag/hts/pedestrian.html

Summary - Be mindful that it's drivers choice to stop if the pedestrian is only waiting and watching on a corner to cross.

Cars it seems are only mandated by law to stop when a person is in the act of crossing the street in a cross walk.

Re: In New Jersey, a Battle Over a Fluoridation Bill - fluoride will be added to Jersey City water

I grew up in a town that included fluoride in the water and have obvious fluorosis stains. My teeth are in good shape outside the stains, but at this point I have so much fluoride in my teeth my dentist recommended that I avoid mouthwash that delivers extra fluoride.

I'd be curious to hear what some of the other local dentists in our area have have to say about this. Does anyone have an appointment coming up or recently talked to their dentist about this?

was there last night again for dinner. I saw that they had hooked up this crazy auto-piano playing machine for the baby grand in the dining room area. According to the staff, they apparently got approved for live performances now despite the robot piano player and will be hosting cabaret nights of a sort on Saturdays around 10pm. They also plan karaoke

Re: Field Station Dinosaur - Secaucus
#14
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


a colleague and I went one day after work on a special educators day on opening week. At that point, parking was still free and lot's of the potential activities and stations were still in development.

It's a fantastic place for younger children, (6-10 years old and we observed that it can be a little scary for some of the wee ones) but not interesting (not yet) for an older student who is not going with free will.

The robots themselves are impressively huge and well placed. The robotics are simple yet effective and the whole park affords a nice walk which one could finish lazily in about 35-45 minutes if you stop and read all the good information about each creature. Although according to the park they plan on expanding more and more.

Some of the stations: coloring, digging for pre-buried fossils in a sand pit, an educational outdoor theater with different games and performances (puppet show) as well as a person in a dinosaur suit. There is a green screen for taking action pictures with the dino's. When we went there was also a green house under construction along with a large pavilion on the top of the hill which could be anything now.

It's definitely worth checking out if you're into dinosaurs, but from some of the latest developments, Secaucus (not the field station) is now charging $10 for parking.

(http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index ... harging_environmenta.html)

That on top of the $15-20 per person fee to get into the park can make for an expensive family outing. But if you ever wanted a picture of both a tyrannosaurus rex and empire state building in the same shot, this is the place to go.

Re: New Stop Signs at 16th & Coles
#15
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


It must have been a trial of some sort. I drive/bike down that road at least twice a week and I recall seeing a cop stationed in the parking lot on the west side of the road more often than not watching the new stop signs.

I wondered myself if it was a safety implement or just a cash sign (would they really do that?).

The roads are wide enough that I've never felt in danger on the bike, but maybe it was to help with the lack of a sidewalk for the pedestrians? Although there usually aren't that many....

That sounds pretty promising, and definitely a great addition. Hopefully word can be spread and more trees can grace our streets. Were there any stipulations if the tree doesn't acclimate?

City Tree Planting Applications
#17
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Has anyone applied for a tree installation on their property?

My brother just bought a row house in Philly and found out that the city will install (break up the concrete) and plant a tree in front of your house on the curb line for free if your property qualifies (no hydrant, power lines etc.)

I found an application from last year on the Jersey City public site, that offers something similar, yet costs $200.

http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/uploa ... lanting%20Application.pdf

Anyone know if this is offered every year? Wondering if anyone has done/tried this for their homes.

I agree, definitely always a joy at the Box. The staff is very kind and warm and very courteous. The happy hour is lovely with $4 martinis and $2 beers. It's also a lot closer to me than MORE and the sushi is nearly as good. I've seen it somewhat full, but not often.

Re: Holiday Parking Schedule

Not too shy to talk


Surprisingly I just had a pleasant JCPA experience.

I recently bought a car out of state with that states temp tags.
When I called JCPA and asked what to do they told me I had to reapply and pay all over again. PAIN.

I went in the next day to see if I could get a second opinion in person, because surely they'd have me on record and can just print out a new sticker? Clearly not. "You have to start over."

I went back the next day with all my forms, the application & money, and this time there was an uniformed PA officer behind the desk. She told me not to be ridiculous, my current permit is good till August - I'll just print you out a 30 day temp tag and when your plates and reg come in the mail just bring 'em over, pay 1$ for the transfer and that's that.

still a hassle full of mixed messages, but at least I came away feeling victorious.

I was wondering, is it bad form to go to a tailor just to get your measurements and not get a suit from them?

Is that common practice/expected (free), or is it a service that a tailor will charge for?

They are quite a few who live up by Henry Street/Chestnut Avenue. I've seen them eating out of the cat bowls folks leave out on the sidewalk. These lot seem fearless/oblivious. I sneaked by on the sidewalk as one was feasting to see what would happen...the striped kitty just glanced up and continued to dine.

Re: JC Post Office - Be Very Afraid
#29
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Between jobs and with the help of a girlfriend I worked at the main JC post office a few years back.

What an experience.

As much as I will always stick up for all my great, hardworking, dedicated, coworkers (which were many) there were definitely some major untreatable messes going on there that not even they could help with.

A lot of it had to do with poor communication between the admin/coordinators who are always running around solving the problem from 40 minutes ago and being unable to explain new routes that they'd shove the substitutes into because everything is on a time budget due to too much overtime and the general bankruptcy bent of the USPS.
Many TE's go out a touch unprepared, and the rule was....if you don't know what to do with certain mail, just hold onto it and bring it back to the PO for tomorrow to deal with. You get the idea if that TE gets stuck on the same route a few days in a row.


Last bit there is true, they told us we weren't obliged to except outgoing mail from home boxes or people on the street- but many do out of kindness.

This guy has been on fire this summer! He drives through my neighborhood a lot, and the jeep definitely has some sort of karaoke device set up inside.

I kinda remember him driving around a few years ago around election time singing out political support, but it wasn't until this summer that I saw/heard him again.
