Re: Jersey City mulls changes to pedestrian plaza to address rowdy bar-goers

I am glad I moved from Grove Pointe to Paulus Hook when they added the bars downstairs. I knew the QOL would drop with that addition. The bar crawl is great for single folks/childless couples in the neighborhood. Not so much for everyone else.

Re: Dealing with noisy rental tenants in a condo

I had the same problem in a condo in Paulus Hook. The place looked nice, but excessive noise from tenants above (and a major bug problem!).Luckily I was renting and able to break the lease. However, the people who moved in after me paid almost 600K! They moved less than a year later. After that experience, I made a vow to never buy a condo/coop unless I live on top floor.

Exactly. THAT and turning on pedestrians in crosswalk who have the light. AND driving through STOP signs...

I am usually out of town for Memorial Day but decided to do a stay-cation this year. Are there any Memorial Day fireworks this year? I can't find any info anywhere.

Just got in! My daughter begged me to go back after the sun came out. So glad we did. Even with the long walk to/from the light rail, it was worth it for the great double show. The crowds were well behaved and spread out enough that it didn't feel overwhelming. The police and park rangers were great too! Great Job Major Fulop! Thanks!

Later should be better. There's a concert this evening and the rain is supposed to stop before 9pm. We're going to try to catch the fireworks at the Warren Street marina if it is not too crowded.

Not really...There are about 8 rides total. A bunch of vendor food trucks. A character on stilts and Minnie Mouse. And the playground. My five year old had more fun at the playground until it started raining. If it was sunny/not raining - sure. But the weather is a real bummer.

We went earlier today from 12 til 2 just have a look-see before the crowds later. The rides are not free. 1.25 per ticket or 22 tickets for $20. Each kiddie ride is 3-4 tickets per person.

Re: "Walk" Signal not working on Marin Blvd (Shoprite side of street)

"Walk" Signal not working on Marin Blvd (Shoprite side of street)
#12
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I have been reporting this issue to PSEG for weeks (3 phone calls).

The 'Walk' signal on the Shoprite side of Marin Blvd is not working. You press the button to cross the street and the "Walk" signal never comes on. When you attempt to cross the street, once cars stop on the left, the drivers leaving the shopping plaza turn on you from the right when you're 1/2 way across Marin Blvd. It is VERY dangerous crossing Marin Blvd after grocery shopping (note - the 'Walk' light works when going to Shoprite by the projects on the opposite side of Marin). PSEG is not fixing the problem. One PSEG 'customer service rep' even told me that 400 Marin Blvd doesn't exist! Who else do I contact? It is a shame watching people nearly hit/running for their lives everyday (me included).

Reporting from 12th floor of Grove Pointe (Grove St and Christopher Columbus Drive downtown). All of Christopher Columbus Drive is flooded. Flood waters from Hudson/Exchange Place has covered the streets and sidewalks of Christopher Columbus Drive. It looks like a river down there (I can't see sidewalk or street - just flowing water!). They just turned off the elevators in our building.

Wayne between Barrow and Jersey Ave is the block to avoid. There is gang activity on that block and shots were fired earlier this year at 3pm in the afternoon. Apparantly a beef btn rivals. I never walk down that block, day or night.

Re: Grove Pointe ridiculous rent increase

Thanks everyone for weighing-in. Yeah...it looks like I have to stay and pay. I checked out other comparable residences in the area and they are either inconvenient (no elevators, not nice area, distance from train/market etc), bad reviews (thin walls, bugs etc), and/or more expensive. GP must've done their research too...I am looking at a place today on Erie (2 br for 2500, but no elevators - will probably pass and sign the GP lease).

JC_GeeGee - yup, 1 bedroom.

Crazy_Chester - regardless, it is still a very steep increase. I guess an incentive to stay doesn't exist...

I agree with you foshizigity00. There's an apartment on Erie for 2500/mnth. The broker wants 1 month fee. For what?! I walk by the place every day and going to inquire directly. Highway robbery.

Re: Grove Pointe ridiculous rent increase

The reduced rent was $1800 for 2 years. Without the incentives, $2050. According to their reasoning, they're increasing the rent by $50 to $2100 for a renewal to bring the rent to "market rate". But for me, it is really a 300 increase from $1800 to $2100. They are not offering a 2 year lease or any incentives for lease renewals...

I find it odd that no one is complaining about this on Kannekt and they're not on ApartmentRatings (must've paid them off or something). I just want people to know the real deal about Grove Pointe.

Grove Pointe ridiculous rent increase
#24
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I have lived at Grove Pointe for 2 years. They want to increase my rent by $300/mnth . Their reasoning is that the increase is based on the true market rate (2050) not the reduced amount/incentive for the 2 year lease (1800). I spoke with some other tenants and the same is happening to them. I can afford to pay extra, but it just seems greedy and unfair to good tenants . Esp. since anyone can walk in off the streets (constant concierge changes), the fixtures/floors are cheap and the window units are noisy . I just got my lease and had to vent (and prob look for another apt with thick walls, laundry and convenience (the main plusses of living there). Also, WHY isn't Grove Pointe on ApartmentRatings.com?
