I also heard good things about Costco fish and seafood quality. Do you guys concur? If so I'd be very happy.


As Brewster said, the thing about Costco is that pretty much everything they sell is top quality, particularly their fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish/seafood. Their lobster tails are huge and just perfect. Their supply of fresh, wild caught fish is rather limited most times, but whatever they have on hand is always good.

As an aside, I’m really surprised that people continue to patronize the Clifton location when Teterboro is just three minutes farther out but so much easier to get in and out of it, and much larger, making it more comfortable to shop.

For that matter, the Edison location is the best within a 30 minute drive, as it also sells alcohol, which is another huge perk of a Costco membership.


Why are people travel1ng out of JC and to big box stores for seafood?

Up on West Side Avenue a block or two past Max Heirs (check out their clothing and sneaker selection)on the left facing Bayonne is a great fish market with a variety of seafood that will knock your eyes out.

Park your car in the Park Tavern lot, go in and have a bloody or two and stroll on down to the fish market. Just ask someone on the street and they'll tell you where it is, or follow your nose.

Give the little guy a chance.

Re: (4/16/2018) Storm causes flooding across Hudson County

Looking way back in time:

In the fifties Montgomery Street and Mercer Street down from the Montgomery Street hill before the Turnpike would flood up to our waists. Needless to say this gave kids great joy and we waded right into it.

Deep snow melts would cause flooding of homes all over the Medical Center and Montgomery gardens vicinity. At that time the area was largely industrial with large bakeries, laundries, trucking companies and paper mills covering the area (just a further reflection).

It may make access somewhat more efficient but who would want to live along an highway extension?


Could this be "fake news", designed to create a buzz as it already has here on JC List?

First a newspaper article about nothing and then a Facebook illusion?

Akin to the Seinfeld "show about nothing", the reporter has written an article based pretty much on nothing:

"A request for comment from New Jersey Commuters Alliance was not returned. Its website includes no contract information and there are no responses to comments from residents made on the group's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The state Election Law Enforcement Commission says it has no records of a lobbyist registering under that name."

Verrrry interesting.

Pretty smart on your part Lora. Banks like to guestimate your coming escrow payment and they often estimate on the high side. I caught one years ago after reading about a proposed tax hike in one amount while the bank initiated an amount a few percentage points higher. I always paid my own taxes separately after that. Many folks--especially new mortgagees aren't aware that you can
pay your taxes separately.

I was only trying to make a point about quality of life issues when it comes to comparisons. Those who have a vested interest in JC as landlords or investors most probably could care less about traffic, filth, corruption etc. What about those who choose to raise families in JC? Are they getting a fair return on the taxes or rents they pay?

What amazes me is that in a number of these suburban towns homeowners are living pretty nice lives in individual homes and payimg taxes in the same amount in some cases as people in JC who are crammed into condos and living with some horrible quality of life situations. For what?-proximity to NYC? It's outrageous.
Doesn't make sense.

I think that the Google photo that is linked in this thread kind of answers your wonder as to what is going there next. In the background are a number of high rise structures. The building looks to be in a marginal neighborhood, so it's a safe guess as to what will follow.
A friend of mine down on seventh street is watching the demolition of his neighborhood (near Ziggy's auto body) to make way for multi residential buildings. The one being built next to him was initially limited to five stories, but a deal was worked out and an eight story building is now beginning construction. In addition there are more high rises going up behind him
This is the way of change and money. Jersey City is slowly being annexed by New York City and is slowly becoming its sixth borough.

Your brutish reply doesn't really deserve a response. I made my point.

But I do have to acknowledge two good features in the Newark Avenue area:

Vitta's Haberdashery -- there for fifty-seven years.

The GrapeVine Bar -- best dive joint in Jersey City.

Taxes are services, plain and simple. My former downtown neighbors did not spend millions on their homes. Some worked two jobs to buy their homes in the 1970s and 1980s. Their tax bills are similar to their purchase prices. Everyone generalize, some were used as one family homes, others could not rent due to damage from Irene and Sandy. When people read about these big rents, everyone generalize and that is wrong. My fear is these good people will lose their homes.


And that Yvonne, as I've said before plain and simple, is economic violence. These people bought homes, raised families and were good citizens. All they wanted was to live out their lives in their city. Shame on the administration.

When the 1988 reval happened, it also only affected downtown JC. Here are the results, Hispanic and senior homeowners were not able to sell, they lost their homes in liens. It is the reason Schundler created the bulk lien sale in the early 1990s because there were thousands of properties not able to pay. At least in those days, you had 3 years to pay before you went into lien. Now it is the same year. All taxes and water must be paid by the December due date which is on the tax bill.


Thank you Yvonne. Makes sense. I remember how messy downtown became after the sixties. It was a long climb out from the messiness.

Can someone explain ?--if there is an explanation: if all the city's properties were evaluated way back when, how did uptown properties come to suffer with higher evaluations and therefore higher taxes?
What parameters were employed that created this inconsistency?

Our infrastructure is definitely lacking, but guess what? This is the part that is conveniently ignored by so many: Jersey City is actually 15% smaller today than it was back in 1930, when it had its largest population. Heck, we are still smaller than we were back in the late 60s. We are not overpopulated. We are simply growing. Lack of historical perspective does not equal facts.


The only historical fact that should be recognized is that with the smaller population you are claiming the city is fast becoming a logistical nightmare. Is quality of life improving?

Don't worry about that. The real estate sharks are in the water already. They sense panic and feed on it. There are some beautiful areas in JC that NYC people with real money will gobble up.

I wonder what the likelihood is that some JC politicians are browsing this forum.
Have any newspaper articles appeared that anyone can point out that explore the disruption in the lives
of the aged? These people only seek to live out their lives in the buildings and neighborhoods to which they've become accustomed. They've been good citizens, obeyed the laws, raised their families to do the same, and are now faced with the hardships of ridiculously high tax rates which make no sense whatever. The politicians of New Jersey should be ashamed for abandoning these seniors in the waning years of their lives.
And for those of you who offer economic reasoning and proffer same solutions to the panic in the lives of these citizens, remember: "what goes around comes around".

After months and months of lambasting New Jersey citizens with campaign promises, our Governor is strangely silent as of late.
There has been the occasional move into the progressive liberal direction, but where are the pronouncements of strong initiative to right New Jersey's wayward pathways?
