Reasonably Priced Short Term Parking Lot/Garage Downtown?
#2
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I'll be going away for a few weeks in the near future and need to park my car in a lot or garage since I obviously can't leave it on the street while I'm away due to street cleaning, etc. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced lot/garage downtown where I could park my car while I'm away? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Re: Pulaski Skyway Update For Commuters

Not too shy to talk


the pulaski closing next year is going to force many of us to take 78 and thereby pay much more in tolls. i am a reverse commuter, i got from JC-Hamilton in the morning and from Hamilton-JC in the evening. i usually enter/exit the turnpike at 13A and take the 1&9/pulaski to avoid the outrageous tolls you pay if you exit at 14C. JC residents should be able to pay a reduced toll rate while the pulaski is closed. don't staten islanders pay a reduced rate currently due to a bridge closure?

Can anyone tell me how much a cab from newark penn station to newark airport should cost? I live in downtown JC and I'm trying to figure out if taking the PATH to newark and then taking a cab to the airport is worth it to save a few bucks. Thanks.

Welcome to the neighborhood.


Barrowbrownstone,

Do you know specifically which property (street number) and yard it is coming from? I'm all about reporting these people but I haven't had a chance to investigate which property the noise is coming from specifically. I'm also not opposed to paying them a visit myself next time I hear them. Thanks.

maybe it's the second building in then technically? the first one definitely doesn't extend mid block. that stretch of montgomery (between barrow and grove) is pretty long. there are a few garages just in from barrow, then the property that i think has the yard where the parties are held. maybe 247 montgomery?

about a month ago, when i first noticed them, i did call the cops/file a noise complaint. it was like 2am and they were extremely loud. it quited down shortly after i called but i'm not sure the cops ever came. i think they may have just coincidentally ended their party.

Very Loud New Neighbors on Montgomery (just in from Barrow)
#10

Not too shy to talk


I live on Barrow St, right on VV Park, between Montgomery and York. I have some new neighbors on Montgomery (just in from Barrow). Their yard backs up to mine and over the past few months since they moved in they have had some very loud and very late parties in their backyard. I'm all for having some fun in the backyard on a nice day but this group is too loud and too late for our neighborhood. Our section of downtown is pretty quiet and family oriented so something will have to give with our new loud neighbors. Anyone else hear this group lately? They were at it last night until pretty late.

I wonder if the "victim" is new to an urban environment and hadn't ridden a crowded train before? Yeah, you are going to come into contact with people. Welcome to city life. And there's a good chance that they will be a different age, gender, and/or race/ethnicity than you. If that makes you uncomfortable, then don't live in one of the most diverse places on the planet.

She acknowledges that it was crowded. So she was surrounded by people who could have helped her as she was supposedly attacked. And she didn't seek any help? I'm calling bullsh!t on this.





many of you should be ashamed of your comments here. KELCEY especially. a woman knows the difference between inadvertant contact on a train and when a man is "grinding" her or touching her inappropriately.

Re: Pulsaki Skyway Closure=Higher Tolls for JC Residents

easy, just like it does in staten island. if your ez-pass is registered to a qualifying address, i.e. in JC, etc. you pay a lower toll.

I like that idea -- higher tolls should not be for reverse commuters on the turnpike! I also think they should limit all autos allowed to turn into or out of the Holland Tunnel from surface streets like Marin to JC register only.



How would that work?

If you have a reverse commute -- out in the morning, in at night -- traffic volume is too low to cause a problem. In fact it might make the return commute easier because fewer cars are pouring into the covered roadway.

If for some reason you commute out at night, this doesn't change anything because two lanes will remain open, outbound.


Relatively to outbound evening rush, there are very few inbound cars. Also, if you take route 7 to the covered roadway but don't have any traffic coming off the Pulaski, then the 6 lanes that pour into the covered roadway or reduced to 4.

Re: Need reliable painter

not taking outlet plates off etc is unacceptable. no offense, but nick and his helper seem like total amateurs. i would never hire someone, even for a rental, that did not pay attention to detail. and saying he would come back to fix his mistakes and then never hearing from him again? forget it!

I can tell where Nick did the painting and his helper did the painting. Nick was more careful and didn't paint over the outlets. There was a day where Nick didn't come to my apt and his helper did the painting. Those are the rooms that have the poor painting job.

Nick said he'd come back and fix the issues. Never heard from him again.

I used Nick. Very nice and reliable. His helper is a young guy with an attitude who doesn't care. Be aware that you have to tell them NOT to paint over your outlets. And you have to tell them things like you want your baseboards painted. He said he'd come back to paint them but never did. I'm also still trying to get paint off my hardwood floors.

He was affordable but the job was a little too slapdash.

Re: Petition to reconsider Pulaski Skyway closure

i am a reverse commuter. i live downtown and travel to central jersey for work everyday. i enter/exit the NJTP at 13A and take the pulaski every morning/evening in order to avoid the ridiculous toll at 14C. (13A toll isn't much better). when the pulaski closes i'll be pretty much forced to take 14C/78 and pay the riducuous toll that is intended for NYC commuters/tourists. anyone in the same position? can we start a petition to implement reduced toll rates for jc residents similar to what staten island has for its residents relative to the bridge tolls out there?

that parking lot is a nightmare to begin with, now this!? every time i park my car there i am fairly certain it is going to be damaged when i come out. i shop there regularly because of the low price but that might be the worst grocery store on the east coast.

Why is pizza so bad in downtown JC?
#29

Not too shy to talk


Full disclosure, I am a pizza snob. I am from the Trenton, NJ area where pizza, or as we call it, "tomato pie," is a religion. I grew up spoiled on really high quality pizza/tomato pie (see DeLorenzo's). So I wonder why just about every pizza shop in downtown JC makes essentially lousy pizza in my opinion. I do think that John's makes a good pie, but I have found their delivery to take forever and the pie is cold once it gets to my door. Why do all these low-end places keep opening and serving the same crappy pizza only to close in a year? It is not that difficult to make a good think crust pie. I have started making my own instead of ordering in JC. I hear La Rustique is good but haven't tried it yet.
