Re: Ob/Gyn and a place to deliver a baby

I'm currently expecting and due in August '09.

I live in Jersey City and work in Bergen County. After a lot of research, we decided I will deliver at Hackensack University Medical Center.

My female OB-GYNs, who have an office in Hackensack and are affiliated with the hospital are: Dr. Irani, Dr. Chait, and Dr. Del Rosario. (They also have offices in Rutherford & Ramsey.)

My experiece with Hackensack and my three Dr's have been excellent so far. Hackensack is ranked in the top 50 in the United States where as the JC hospitals are ranked at the bottom of the list for hospital rankings just within NJ.

Good Luck!

I agree, Tailor's Touch on the corner of 7th and Brunswick is fantastic!

Nicole (owner) is a sweetheart. She's always smiling and nice to talk to.

I have been very pleased by numerous alterations we've had done there. Everything from hems, to suit alterations, they do an excellent job.

When you buy new cans, make sure they have some sort of plastic handle. Buy a bike lock and attach it to whatever is nailed down...a railing by the stairs, a gate, whatever. We had ours stolen last summer and resorted to this. It's a pain, but we still have our trash cans.

New Owners...New Menu!

Hi All,

I live in the neighborhood. Yes, the reason for the rare hours before was because it's new owners!

The 2 guys are fantastic, and very nice! (In fact, one evening late night, they witnessed be stuggling with heavy packages and came out of the store into the freezing cold to help me unload my car.)

They're now open MUCH later during the week days and open both Saturday and Sunday.

They are changing the menu.....going to feature many fresh chicken dishes have fish specials. I can't wait! This area is in dire need of something healthy, quick and convenient...other than bar food and the typical Chinese and Pizza.

Good Luck Guys, and Welcome to the Neighborhood! :)

Hi Stani,

Good Advice...

Here's the crazy part...we don't EVER put our trash cans on the street.

Mostly because the garbage removal personnel tend to toss the containters once they dump the contents into the truck. Also, in wind/rain storms, the receptacles blow all over the street.

What's frustrating is that the individuals who took them, opened the door and came INTO our iron gate! They had to walk at least 6-10 feet and then walk out with them. (I can't imagine that they could lift them over. They are large, heavy containers, plus they were filled with trash bags for Thursday night pick up.)

It's a shame, but this time around we will buy only one large receptacle with an attached lid. We will have to secure it to our gate with a chain and lock.

I also asked the businesses close by, who are open all day, and unfortunately, no one saw anything. This probably happened late Wednesday night or early in the AM Thursday.

Stolen Trashcans/ Hamilton Park/ Thurs, 12.06.07

Hello,

As we went to place our two large trash cans out on the curb last night, Thursday, 12/06/07....our trash cans were no where to be found. Stolen...with trash in them!

We have an iron gate around our property line. To take them took serious effort.

What is wrong with people? Now we have to chain our trash cans to the gate...how pathetic!

We called the police to file a report. The operator thought we were joking.

Very, very, frustrating...

Re: Historic paint for my stoop

JadedJC,

Do you by chance know the exact historic boundaries are within Hamilton Park? One neighbor tells me were within, my other neighbor says were not. I made the mistake by calling City Hall a few years back...nobody knew...I got frustrated and hung up. I ended up using historic guidelines anyway to ensure we didn't have problems.

I'd just like to know for sure for future projects.

Thanks

LOL. That is too funny! They are the conversation piece for that block.

Your siding is brownish, right? Go for a Cream/Pearl color..I like Benjamin Moore's historic colors...I bet you'll find one there.

Re: Brunswick & Eighth: Homes threatened with collapse -- caused by demolition of adjoining buildings

You're right...my standards are way to high! I mean, gosh...there's nothing wrong with a home, literally leaning on the others to stay standing, as well as an 8 foot slope from front to back! This has nothing to do with cosmetics...we're not talking about just a paint job here! We're talking serious, serious homeowner neglect. That is THEIR FAULT and THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE.

PS. Also heard from a neighbor that after all this drama, these owners decided to go to Puerto Rico. So let me get this straight...you're house is condemned and your think it's a good idea to handle the potential law suit against the construction crew from Puerto Rico? Something just doesn't sound quite right.....

I wish the one couple residing among the 4 units would have taken the offer for 250K and gotten out. That was a more than generous offer. They would be in a much better situation right now. Yes, the constrution company did a terrible hack job, no question about it.

I'm sure the couple will be able to sue for damages...However...what's important to remember is that these places were so terribly unstable, it's amazing they weren't condemned by the city before any construction took place! They looked as if they were going to topple over by themselves at any given moment!

What I don't have sympathy for is why any homeowner would let their home slip into such deplorable condition. A homeowners responsibility is to MAINTAIN their property. If they cannot, for whatever reason, then they should be renting and letting a landlord shoulder the maintenance responsibility.

My senior neighbor, a resident of 7th Street whom has lived here for 40 years, informed me that the same situation occured years ago on Monmouth Street. There were 4 attached row homes in poor condition. A developer attempted to take down 2, and the other 2 collapsed. The remaining 2 had to come down.

I live across the street from this disaster....and I'm hearing all kinds of different stories from other neighbors. One story is the developer didn't have permits...

Also hearing that that the couple who lived in the only inhabitated home was offered $250K for the property, and they refused. This owner was the only one who didn't accept the offer.

All I do know is the JC police aren't allowing residents to park on Brunswick Street between 7th and 8th. Understandably, they don't want vehicles or people becoming injured in case these homes topple over.

Re: Please CUT DOWN the ugly Sycamore trees
#17

I live in the outskirts of Hamilton Park. I WANT the forestry division to cut down the ugly sycamore trees.

They look 1/2 dead, and are badly mulitalted due to many of the branches being removed by PSE&G. I called the Forestry Division, because one tree in particular 1) just looks terrible and 2) is hanging dangerously over my roof. I requested that this tree be removed, and in it's place I would pay for new one through the JC fall tree planting program. They sent out an "inspector" and the feedback was "It's fine. Healthy. Nope, we won't remove it." I find this frustrating considering I want to buy a replacement tree that is going to be less hazardous and look much better. And no, I'm not paying a few thousand dollars out of my own pocket to hire a private "tree guy" to take down this tree when it's the city's responsibility.

Ok, so let me get this straight. This happened to them in 2001, and yet they still think it's a good idea to stash $8,000 in their home?

What's that saying? "First time, shame on them, 2nd time, shame on you!"

Can someone please tell these dear old folks that there's this great new concept called banking.....specically, a savings account!
