I'm kind of happy it's not coming to NYC. Detroit, Buffalo or Newark type cities (I'm sure there are a ton) which are desperate need of revitalization would be better suited for this.

Disney is still coming to Hudson Sq though.

We love The Brunswick School.

We have heard mixed reviews about Smart Start.

Look into the Jersey City Moms Group on FB. You might get better feedback.

Re: Zoning Question

Thank you all. We got responses from an architect that is helping us.

For the record, we are able to live in the property while all the paperwork is going thru.

Correctly stated, we are not changing zoning as our zone allows for multi and single family residences.

Correctly stated, we need to ensure there is only 1 kitchen.

Correctly stated, we would need CO detectors per R1 building code.

All in all, it would take about 2-3 months (worst worst worst case).

Thanks again!!!

Thanks All!

Any idea if we can occupy the property while doing all this paperwork? Also, any indication on how long it took? 2 months? 3 months?

Appreciate any and all help!

Zoning Question
#6
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Has anyone purchased a property and gone thru a zoning change ie from a commercial or multi family to a single family? Did you need to get a CCO (continued certificate of occupancy)? Did an architect need to sign and seal drawings?

I am considering a property which is a multi family and want to it to a 1 family.

Mostly looking to understand timelines and procedures. I called the the Building Department but they were not helpful.

Thanks.

Construction permits

Can anyone guide me on what permits are needed for kitchen renovation? We are not moving any plumbing or gas but are doing a fair bit of electrical work. What do permits typically cost and do we need a permit for plumbing, electrical and cabinets? Any leads would be helpful.

Thanks.

Block party was great, and yes to an extent retail is good, however, brick and mortar retail does not do as well as e commerce. Restaurants occupy retail locations and if they are successful don't have competition from e commerce.

Old sleep cheap store on Newark

Does anyone know what is going into the old sleep cheap store on Newark Ave? It's a massive space and I was curiously looking into the window today and saw a bunch of succulents and plants being stored. Is that store being converted?

While on the topic, anyone know anything about Hard Grove Cafe? Are they completely out of business or looking to open in a new spot?

Thanks.

I agree there should be a pedestrian overpass on Marin and Jersey if not Manila as well.

Hoboken is also building a new walking path along Observer, and they have plans for towers on that stretch.

I love living in the area- best of JC and Hoboken, easy walk to PATH and bus.
no surprise that njt approved a tower there...i doubt developers would have built so many towers if there wasn't sometype of understanding that a station would get built there


Is there any "official" info in cyberworld? As in, any plans, renderings etc? Would love to see what they have planned and approved.

Personally love GPs and Battello. Neither are within your budget or distance to the waterfront (hmm maybe Battello has a walking area), but the food is pretty decent at both. If you want a "nice" dinner spot, you could also go to Satis or Light Horse Tavern. I personally LOVE Satis but both are great spots close to the Paulus Hook waterfront.

This area has so much potential. Wide open space to build just about anything (other than hair salons, nail salons, condos or pizza places!).
Why not utilize this space to make a park or something else that services the community? Maybe open a community center?

I know JCMC has an "urgent care" type service at their ER. At one point, they charged only a regular copay (not the ER copay). Not sure if this is still true.

You can make appointments (online) to visit the ER instead of waiting the 4 hours.

I was trying to drive thru Hoboken to get to JC via observer highway; it was lock down by the cops. When we asked what te deal was, we were just told that it was closed (Observer Highway that is) and that we needed to drive thru North Bergen to get to Journal Square.

Does anyone know what happened? There were hazmat vehicles all over. Was this a scheduled closure?

Fat is a choice, unlike those other options. He's also a man with means. He can choose to exercise or he can choose to be lazy, get surgery and he still couldn't even truly stick to a diet that would help him lose weight. Some people wear their weight well. Christie does not. His actions and behavior accentuates his disgusting nature. Spite, anger, bitterness... He's just an ugly person.



Fat or not fat. Choice or not no one cares. What we need not lose focus on is the potential issue at hand. It's very slimey that this report was released during a major holiday week where people's focus was elsewhere. Nevertheless, we, the residents of JC, Hoboken and Newark need to rally together and ensure this ludicrous "solution" doesn't happen. Mismanagement of money and petty politics should not affect the average resident of these three cities.

There's the Indian food truck that makes them for $5 a pop. He's around in newport a lot but at grove street on Friday nights. I can vouch for his chicken 65 kaathi rolls! Amazing.

There's a place on Newark ave in little India called Bombay Talkies that does good rolls as well. Check them out.

Kathi roll company in the city (midtown or village area) is ok. There's a few in on macdoogal right now that are far better. But then again, you need to try them and see if they are compatible with what flavours you like.

Every time I bring someone from out of state they laugh at how corny and ridiculous that nickname is. It makes people think less of the city. My friends and family who come always say the same thing after I tell them how its stupid: " Its just Jersey being Jersey".

Its not a name we should be proud of.


I love the denial. The primary reason JC is worth anything is proximity to NYC and de facto status as the 6th borough. JC should embrace this rather than fighting it like a rebellious teenager that doesn't want to be associated with their parents while still taking their cash.


Agreed! What really is in a name?!?! As the saying goes ... a rose by any other name ...

We should have our own identity, agreed, but just like Queens or Staten Island, JC would be insignificant if it wasn't almost attached to Manhattan. Let people call it whatever while we (re)establish our own identity.

They did look at Hoboken/Jersey City but could not find a good location yet (according to company spokesman Mr. Sinatra). A main factor affecting good location imo is accessibility. I wouldn't build a WF here unless I could plop it somewhere on Columbus.


I truly don't want to beat a dead horse (this debate has been going on for a very long time!) but shut down the POS Pathmark; plenty of existing parking, already set up for a grocery store and is accessible by car to people that drive (next to the high way), accessible to people by light rail (by the hospital). That area is in some dire need of rehab and an anchor such as WF will assist with just that.

The farmer's market should be on today (they usually cancel on rainy days). If they are on, your best bet is to go to one of the stalls (I think it might be Stony Hill Farm). They are at the Grove Plaza today.

There's Sugartown as well (near the Brownstone Diner) which I think is closed on Mondays.

For things other than pies, Carmen Rosa is hands down the best bakery in town. Extremely well priced and absolutely delish!

NYC mandates union labor. Dubai uses slave labor. That's how their building is only the fifth most expensive while ours is #1.


That is partially correct; PUBLIC projects are definitely union only. Private developers on private jobs are free to use open shop labor or union.

Burj Khalifa is a private project built by a private firm with private funding. Same with BoA. Even though it is in NYC, they can chose to use non union labor however most large companies do not as they do not want bad PR.

The soaring price tag has also been fueled by the demands of powerful politicians whose priorities outweighed worries about the bottom line, as well as the Port Authority’s questionable management and oversight of private contractors.


i'm shocked. aren't you shocked? we should both be absolutely astounded at the news of this


Actually, this doesn't surprise me at all. The Port Authority is notorious for mismanaging time and money. They are absolutely clueless on how to get anything done. Typical "DMV Behavior".

On that note, does anyone know what's going on with the former mxplyx (or however you spell it) store? It seems that and A1 deli have been closed for a few months.

It would be nice if there was a good vision for the mall. Unfortunately I think it's here to stay :( I started a thread on this, entitled "the future of newport mall", a few years ago if you want to search for it on this forum.


Bulldoze the parking lot. That's a real waste of space. Incorporate parking into the new structures that are going around the mall. The mall could potentially stay, it's not the worst even though it's not the best.

As for someone mentioning the Powerhouse, that's a gorgeous structure. They need to get their sh!t together and develop it into a usable community space. That way, there can be more retail, commercial, recreational spaces that can draw people into the area. A great idea would be to make the Powerhouse into a music venue (think NJPAC or BergenPAC). Or heck, even bring in a bowling alley and a climbing wall. Whatever they do with it, it will be a boost to the area.

This is good idea as long as it's done with good urban planning in mind. It will somewhat connect three standalone residential areas that will be connected via foot traffic (Hamilton Park, DT and Newport). Hopefully the retail that the developers are targeting are small time businesses; we already have enough chain stores at the mall. But then again, any retail will be a boost to the area.

As for the PATH perhaps there would be consideration of having 2 JSQ 33rd street trains to 1 HOB 33rd street train. It's a quick and easy fix. Well "easy" as long as someone at the PA can see that a larger population in JC warrants that.
