Re: Question about chromium?
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


WNYC did a whole series on industrial pollution in New Jersey: http://project.wnyc.org/toxic-nj/

As said, you will hardly find a block in JC without contamination, when I started paying more attention and researching, I read that there used to be a large chromium smelting facility close to liberty harbor and the furnace slag was widely used as cheap fill in construction across all of JC.
http://www.nj.gov/health/eoh/hhazweb/crsumm.pdf

just look at that map. True - environmental cleanup has been going on, but I would still not plant a vegetable garden in JC. And lets not forget that a waste number of residential water pipes (connections from water main to individual homes) are still lead in JC...

While it is true there can be side effects, like in any surgery, I think the key to minimize the risk is to choose the best possible surgeon with the most amount of experience, not look at the price or convenience alone.

I went to Dr. Hersh in Teaneck (about 20 min drive) and could not be happier, you need someone to pick you up only two times - for after the exam and after the surgery. No issues whatsoever, vision still perfect after 3 years.

Re: Help with homeowners building permit plans

I just would like to thank everyone for their input and give an update. It is correct that for a single family you can pull homeowner's building permit and do the plans and construction without a licensed professional, if you feel up to that job:)
I found out the plans are beyond my capabilities, and got a local architect from Thumbtack. Very satisfied so far, he came to see and measure and works on the plans now. Had some great suggestions for the steps down, that we would not have considered otherwise, no matter how many pinterest posts we saw. Because the job is so small, the overall price for the plans was acceptable too ~ $400. Thank you for the encouragement to look for an architect in the online quote sites.

Help with homeowners building permit plans
#4
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hello,

I am looking for someone to help me draft the building permit plans for putting in a patio door off my living room. I confirmed with the building department I need a permit, but I have no draftsman experience, and can not make the plans they ask for (the property situation to the neighbor properties, room layout with the electric, plumbing details, the door/wall structural details, elevation layout etc). The contractor will not do it. Does anyone know someone who will do this for me for a reasonable fee? Eg. architect student etc. I don't want to spend a ton of money on an architect or studio just for a door.

Thank you

Bucket & Bay in the "warehouse art district", on Bay just below Marin. They do child birthday parties, they block off nice corner space with flooor to ceiling windows, for adults there is booze flavored ice cream and newly opened craft brewery next door. And they are realy nice and accommodating.

Re: Purple smoke coming out from Newark incinerator plant yesterday

Thank you MDM, I also hope there are filters/scrubbers employed as the legislation surely demands. But it definitely were no clouds, it was plumes of bright crimson smoke, I even thought maybe they are honoring the breast cancer in this weird way.
Is it still possible, if all were as it should have been, that this color of smoke it emitted?

Did anyone else see this? Driving home on 1/9N to JC yesterday (~5:30 pm) I noticed a bright crimson/purple smoke coming out of the Newark incinerator plant.
Quick google seems to indicate this happens regularly? https://twitter.com/jgcoraci/status/302184467454390273

Whatever on earth are they burning there, can't be any good. Makes me want to re-think the intention to move to the West Side, it all blows right over the river.

Thank you! My son will be 1 year in September, I have found the Primary prep schol, it will work for pre-K3 and beyond, thank you for the recommendations.
St. Elizabeths looks good, I will check it out, thank you.
Does anybody have any recent personal experience with the Academy Child Care Development Center? The reviews are mixed. I am even willing to drive my son to Smart Start in the Heights, but the traffic on Central can be a pain.
Thank you for the great suggestions, please keep it coming!

Looking for great day care for 1 year old

We are deciding whether to put an offer on a place in Journal Square around St. Peters, moving from downtown JC. Our son is in great daycare (River school), is there anything similar in Journal Square? The Smart Start Academy in the Heights is too far, and what I am finding so far does not look too good.
Any recommendations?

How bad is street parking around St. Peter's University?

We are looking to buy in the blocks around the university, and need a car to get to work. How bad is street parking, or should I rather only look at houses with off street parking? Any other options? Eg. how much monthly would be a private lot?

Thank you! I went over today and could not find any other machines, than the ones by the platform. Browsing through the options there was no monthly parking only purchase option, but I guess that is because they all sold out for December already, right? Or are there any other vending machines for the parking passes. Thank you again.

Would anyone know if it is possible to purchase just the monthly parking pass, without the HBLR monthly pass at this station? When do those parking permits go on sale each month? I am getting conflicting informaton, on the 20th, on the 19th? What time do they go on sale?
Thank you.

Re: Home cooked indian food delivery?

Thank you, I like them as well, but what I had in mind is I think called "tiffin service". We are not Indian, but used to use this service in the Edison area - it is home made or catering kitchen made family food - packaged always for the whole week ahead. I found quite a few being offered in JC,
Eg.

http://www.pragathi.com/Tiffin-Servic ... rsey-city-New-Jersey/5140

but I am asking for recommendations or personal experience.
Thanks:)

Would anyone have a recommendation for a good home made Indian food delivery service? I am looking for the weeks worth of family meals - delivered once a week to downtown Jersey City (or I can pick it up eg. in JSQ). I started working a very busy job and would love this as a healthier alternative to take out meals. Our family used to use this service when we lived in central NJ (Edison) and it was fabulous.

Re: How to get JC parking permit, if I am not an owner of the car?

Not too shy to talk


Thank you, that is all great help - especially the warning of the outdated info on the website, much appreciated.

Does anyone know how hard it is to get the temporary non-resident permit? ($125 for 90-days). I am hoping they are goign to be more lenient on that one. I can not provide W2 or any other document that I employ her yet, she has just started with us last week. The private lots are at the moment cost prohibitive for her.

Thank you!

How to get JC parking permit, if I am not an owner of the car?
#20
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hello,

Our nanny just moved in with us, she is a young girl and the car she has belongs to her grandmother, who is lending it to her for few months, until she gets her own. Please don't start on the "you don't need a car in JC", for the family situation she is in, she does need it (unless you know of someone offering rideshare between Doyelstown and JC every weekend).
I understand for the parking permit she needs the registration to be in JC, which she can not get unless she is the owner, correct?
Does one have to be the owner to buy the 90 day temporary non-resident permit?

Re: Who does eyelash tinting downtown?

Thank you, I had no idea. In England and Europe in general this is normal cosmetic procedure, i have super fair complexion and it saves time and lets you go sans make- up in summer. There are plant based, organic dyes for those who don' like the chemicals.
Interesting, thank you again. when i searched for "illegal eyelash tint", I found a funny post from someone who was on the same quest.

Hello, does anyone know if any salon does eyelash tinting (dye, not extensions, not permanent make-up) in downtown JC? I tried several salons and they looked at me like I had two heads. I used to have this done abroad all the time, is it so unusual here?
