But if your 7th grader aspires to McNair, start PSAT prep NOW!!!


Any recommendations regarding PSAT tutors / prep classes?

Re: Safe to live in the Heights (Concord & St. Paul's)?

I would agree that the particular little neighborhood you're considering is rough around the edges, but as far as living goes you need to get a feel for the Heights block-by-block. St. Paul's has a number of large apartment buildings -- that can affect the character of a block a lot if they're not well managed. Walk/drive/bike by your prospective house at multiple times of day, throughout the week if possible. I personally like that little corner between 139 and Palisade a lot -- houses are cute, public transportation is great (123 to Port Authority right at Christ Hospital, jitneys going to JSQ, downtown, PA during rush hour, 87 on Central to Hoboken). Don't know what parking is like, considering proximity to hospital. Closest grocery store is probably Supremo on Palisade, but you're actually equally close to 5 corners and Newark Ave -- Moloney's Meat Market, Philippine Bread House, Monteleone's Bakery.
Take a cab or uber at night if you're concerned; for the most part I would agree that the walk to and from JSQ is a safe one using the right routes.

That happened on our corner in the Heights a few weeks ago too. They held an open house and took offers even though they'd signed papers the day before.

I also have no idea where in the Heights your home exists, which makes your comparisons rather odd.

Your home in the Heights might be a faster walk to JSQ, but is every home in the Heights? No.



You made a blanket statement about the Heights, so I gave a specific real world example that debunked it. Nothing odd about it. There are numerous 2BR condos in my neighborhood in that range. I'm not the Heights cheerleader and have no interest in pumping it up (been here 10 years, love it, have no plans on leaving for at least another 10). I'm just mystified by the constant refrain that the Heights has no transportation. It's simply not true.

I don't see the Heights as a step up, particularly given its lack of public transportation within a reasonable range for the same cost.


Actual facts per Google maps: 260 Harrison to JSQ -- 32 minute walk. My house in Heights to JSQ -- 20 minute walk. 260 Harrison to West Side Light Rail -- 13 minute walk. My house in Heights to 2nd Street Light rail -- 10 minute walk (uphill on the way home). The Heights also has multiple buses and jitneys to JSQ, downtown, and NYC.
It's fine if you don't like the Heights (REALLY FINE, actually) but stop making stuff up.

Anyway, there was a hipster at my bus stop the other morning. They figured out to use the 87. It's really not that hard.

My roof is only accessible by big ladder as well. I would suggest shelling out more $$ and having an actual roofer come and inspect. If it's that difficult to access, it may not have been thoroughly maintained, and you want to make sure someone qualified takes a good hard look at it.

Re: Dog attack kills North Jersey teen, injures two others
#16
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


My mother was attacked by a "friendly family dog" when she was 7. It was tied up outside of the neighborhood grocery store and she made the huge mistake of being too comfortable with dogs and got too close. It ripped her face to shreds and she's been covered in scars for 63 years.
Any dog, regardless of breed, is potentially dangerous, especially around strangers. My mother went on to own dogs her entire life without break and thinks the breed discussion is ridiculous. Sometimes it's the owners, sometimes it's the dog, and it's never something you can legislate. That said, the off-leash activity is as ridiculous as the ever-present poop, and the city should be ticketing heavily.

The Heights will change, just like every neighborhood will change. Squabbling about whether the change is faster or better than in Greenville or anywhere else is impossibly silly.
The transportation complaints and lack of a train have been a non-issue for both myself and my husband over the last 9 years. I commute to NYC every day and get to my desk in 45 minutes door to door, and there are multiple ways to do it. Unlike all of downtown, I get to continue taking the Path through Hoboken. If and when all of this Journal Square development happens, everyone in downtown will be wishing for buses because there won't be a square inch left for them to get onto the trains.

Re: Please clean up your dog poop...

No. It's really not a fetish site but you can do with it what you will. I'm just trying to keep my sense of humor.
You are more than welcome to put up pictures of offenders. Other people can put up pictures & locations. There's a map. Maybe we can create some collective shame on the part of the city, maybe not. Personally I think the only way to get it to change is for some ticketing to start, whether it's offenders (hard to catch) or the condo associations, businesses & homeowners who let the poop sit on their sidewalks for days on end. There is a condo building in particular that lets trash and poop collect for weeks, and they're right at a bus stop. I'm planning on sending them all the pictures from their address. Either they start cleaning up or I'll lodge a complaint. It may not be their tenants leaving the poop, but it's still their responsibility to deal with it.

I actually started a flickr group just for this reason.
Group is here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/jcpoop/pool/
To add pictures, you can join group and upload. Otherwise email to also05work@photos.flickr.com.
I've been including date and intersection on the photos. If you email the pics, you can just include info in the subject line and it will attach to the picture.

Re: Yarn in JC?

Not too shy to talk


Is it meant to be felted after you knit it? I've definitely seen both fiber and yarn that are minimally processed & still hold a lot of lanolin, but it's always been at fiber festivals or farmer's markets. There aren't a lot of processors that will leave lanolin in there, from what I understand.
There are lots of real simple diaper cover patterns out there if you're not totally settled on this one.

What do you mean by untreated? You can by organic yarn at Patricia's in Hoboken, and she may have some other undyed options.
As for roving -- are you looking for wool for spinning? It is very hard to come by locally unless you order it or happen upon it at a farmers or craft market. Woolbearers in Mount Holly has wool for spinning, and I've seen teeny amounts of Corriedale at Brooklyn General Store and possibly at Purl Soho.
If you know exactly what you want, I can definitely help you find it.

I want to make sure I understand -- have you convinced yourself that making a full stop at a stop sign is not something you have to do 100% of the time?
Because it is. Full stop. Every time. There is no excuse for putting other people's lives in danger.

We used DeCarlo Landscaping in Palisades Park about 4 years ago; they did a great job. They put in a brick patio and we have very few weeds. They also pulled out tons (and tons) of old river rock that the yard was buried in, along with weeds, bottle caps and glass and replaced it with sod.
