It looks like Azucar shut down recently. The "space available" signs are up on the windows. Anyone know what happened?

I've used Epic more than once for tires bought thru tirerack.com. They were great. Zero hassles. Good guys, nice shop. Don't think twice about it!

From my younger days renting shore houses with friends, I know for a fact if the police were called to the house for a noise complaint, anyone who was not on the lease was required to immediately leave the premises. I do not know if that is NJ State law or a Long Beach Township (LBI) ordinance.

I grew up VERY close to that exact spot and I would not invest my hard earned money there now. Too much crime in the general vicinity. Robberies, break-ins, muggings, stolen and vandalized cars... we had it all. If you are used to living downtown (as I am now) you won't be happy there. I would never move back.

Now duck and cover while the Greenville lovers jump all over this!

Me too! I was out for a run around 5:30am and saw the first one at Warren & Morris; man, I jumped across the street in what seemed like one step. Then I smelled a second one on Washington and 1st. Insane!

White Star at The Harbor (old Captain Al's) on Warren and Essex is pretty chill and always accommodating with kids. Standard pub food and decent beer selection

One actually got into the stairwell of our building in Paulus Hook. It's a side door and the spring to close the door must have been too slow to close the door behind whomever exited and it scurried in! Man, it was NOT pleasant. Our super chased it out, but we had to get an exterminator to come spray some special deodorizer to help dissipate the smell.

We had my son's Christening party at Maritime Parc. It was awesome! Food, service, view, etc. was all fantastic. Also, plenty of easy parking for the suburbanites who freak at the thought of parallel parking.

Whatever public relations/advertising firm Fulop is hiring for his "marketing" campaign probably called a favor in to the NYT for the article.

I'm all for advertising JC, it can't hurt my property value... c'mon over NYers!

Some rules to live by:
1. Don't answer the phone if you don't know who is calling.
2. Don't announce your name on your voice mail system. The automated greetings work best.
3. Make sure your number is unlisted and on the FCC do not call list.

Same dude was in my lobby around 5pm last night; also in Paulus Hook. Despite his lack of a uniform I thought he was legitimately delivering the mail. Maybe I was wrong.

I had a disturbing experience with a homeless man walking down Newark Ave (Ward E) this afternoon. The person in question from what I can remember, is a 5ft 5" white male, around 60-ish years old with short cropped gray hair. I think his eyes may be blue or grey. He walked right up to my face and asked for spare change. I was deep in thought so didn't notice him until he was right in front of me. I said sorry and tried to walk by, but he wouldn't let me through. I tried dodging left and then right as he followed me at each direction I took, continuously asking for money, so I finally told him to get out of my way. He then turned belligerent and started cursing at me. I was finally able to walk past him as he continued to curse and then actually spat at me. Luckily I was a safe range away from his spit. I was afraid at first when he wouldn't let me walk past him. He was so close and aggressive that I thought he was going to grab me at any moment.

Not sure if anyone else has experienced something similar with this homeless person or others. There are usually homeless people hanging around Newark Ave and I have wondered before if they were ever aggressive. This proves to me that safety may indeed be an issue.


Clearly a scary experience. Never hesitate to call the police. I have the non-emergency # programmed in my phone 201-547-5477. Pretty east to remember as well. Use the camera on the smart phone whenever you can.

On an iPhone with iOS6, click "Settings", then "Notifications", scroll to the bottom where it says "Government Alerts" and toggle off the AMBER and Emergency Alerts.

I don't know how the others work.

clermont cove. PROS: Some units still have great, unobstructed views; units are spacious; nice pool; just ok gym; nice sky lounge; ok laundry facility; nice holiday decorations.

CONS: Recent board(s) have been horrible re: fiduciary responsibility/money management and selectively enforce rules (it is run more like a country club with VIPs versus a business); current management company (RCP) is non-responsive so far as to not even obey NJ state laws - the worst mgmt company to date in my opinion; only a select few owners can have food deliveries actually at their door versus in-lobby pickup; on about 4th super in last 2 years; i can't even count on 2 hands how many times i've seen the roof was being repaired over the years; sufficient heat/hot water for all units is sporadic; kids constantly screaming/running/riding scooters in hallways and lobby (i haven't seen anything near this kind of behavior in any of the other buildings i've visited over the years); walls are so thin can hear neighbors sneeze/yawn, talking on phone; some floors smell nasty; and of course taxes continue to go up. Maintenance went up 11% in 2008 and 10% in 2009.

Even some staff say they wouldn't want to live there, so there you go.


I do not live there, but RCP Management also manages the building I live in. I echo the sentiments... they are absolutely atrocious.

I agree and how do they screen potential under-handed residents ?


Not to mention that Fulop lives on this block... I am assuming the renovation of those buildings would only help his property value.

I guess they were OK with it because they were previously vacant for a REAL looooonnnnggggg time. These guys ripped the front off the two buildings and complete rebuilt the entire facade with new cinder block and then refaced with red brick. They are rebuilding the stoops this week.

Meanwhile, at the complete opposite end of the row (closer to Washington St), there is a row house for sale. I called the number on the sign and they already had offers for over a million, but it is uninhabitable according to the real estate agent (who is also the lawyer) for the seller. It is a legal 6 family, but it currently broken into 10 separate units now; it must have been a boarding house or something years ago. I know for a fact that it has sat empty for well over 10 years.

Agreed. A lot of people are also renting out rooms in their condos/apartments via https://www.airbnb.com/ and there is not much anyone (neighbors) can do about it.
