Just consider me a grateful neighbor, and enjoyer of the park and the work that you and your volunteers do.

Why are you so nasty Brewster? I never attacked anyone, I'm just unhappy with the building being planned that's next door to my property. I think it's bad for my family, bad for the 4 schools in this neighborhood, and a bad idea. We are reasonable people that are not expecting miracles to occur but think that there has not been enough daylight in the process. When we bought our condo in 2011 there was nothing on this in the records we researched only the lease for the school ground until 2017.

I don't expect my neighborhood to be dipped in amber and to stay the same, but I do expect better notification and better communication in my ward.

IT was a shady situation, and we're looking for a fair way out.

The thing that sticks in my head is that the Developer stated that they originally wanted to do this in NYC but Bloomberg had a huge RFP process and required extensive approval process and they found that in JC there was nothing like that and they could get a project done quickly. That says everything to me. They chose JC because it the city was asleep at the wheel and wasn't protecting the interests of it's citizens.

I have a huge problem with that. Perhaps I'll be wrong an this will be an awesome addition to the area, and I'll have egg on my face. I welcome being wrong. But we've talked to people that know more about city planning and development and we don't think changing the density in our area is a good idea for our neighborhood. I stand by that and there a lot of us in our neighborhood or that have children at PS 3 or MS 4 that do not want this development and we are well within our rights to fight it and will do so until we can find a fair middle ground.

Take it down a notch will ya? You are talking to people who put every dime they had to buy a home and now are worried about what is happening to it.

Come to our block at 8am, watch the madness that occurs here every morning with school drop off and the parking dance that goes on. It's BONKERS. Even if zero cars come with the new building adding 100 more humans into the AM mix will still create more chaos.

The Building in question is too big, and is totally inappropriate to put across the street from an elementary school. It's going to change the nature of this neighborhood that is family in nature, that's extremely quiet at night and on weekends. We enjoy a lot of privacy. This is going to change. We asked a lot of questions and were given push back and shrugs.

Safety is an issue, buildings that don't suit the neighborhood are an issue because it can damage the value of our investment, our homes. I'm not a wealthy person by any means and my family put our savings into our home and it's a VERY big deal how it affects the value of our home and the nature of the neighborhood where we're raising out children.

Adam Bernstein of Garden State Orthopedists in Hoboken was awesome. Very good bedside manner and is not a surgery pusher. I had a torn meniscus and between the surgery and my PT I was healed in record time. Cannot recommend him/them enough. They were really great with handling insurance, and setting up my PT etc.

One of my signs had one of its plastic hangy things cut. I'm thinking someone was trying to vandalize but someone came outside. Low lives.


My question. Does anyone find it incredibly ironic that Healy has either his HQ or a field office in Cake LUSH???

No. But I know someone passed the info along to their friends and so I'm just the start. This is a big small town. Then again it's not unheard of for more than one person to do the same dopey thing.

I feel terrible, I was just freaked out and wanted to warn friends and instead started an internet rumor. Completely horrifying despite being well intended. I'm so sorry that an officer was sent out.

So I'm thinking I might have started the dog rumor after conversations in the dog park. Please disregard the dog rumor I'm kind of mortified.

Just bought a condo in an older Victorian building. We have pocket doors that need repair as there is a safety concern and I'd like to clean them up a bit. Any recommendations?
