Re: Heads Up - JCPD Driving Enforcement - Corner of 9th/Manila

Well, they definitely weren't there yesterday. I moved to the corner of 9th and Manila. Yesterday, I was about to start walking across Manila on my way home from the mall and a car with NY plates came whizzing down and didn't even pause at the stop sign. I'm always wary of this intersection, especially at night. The need more enforcement there. Also, there's a lot of people that get out of the Holland Tunnel or off the Turnpike and use Manila/Grove as a highway to downtown. They need signs reminding drivers that they are entering a residential neighborhood, speed bumps, and sensors that show the drivers' speed.

I would stick with one person since it's going on the MLS anyway. You can always switch if it's not a good fit. Some agents won't even take your listing if you're working with other agents because they can work for hours on end and never get paid.

Yvonne, do you actually take the light rail? I ride it almost every day and not just to commute. I visit my friends in Greenville, go shopping, get to my gym, go to my doctor's office, attend my classes in Hoboken etc. I also split my time between my place in JC and my boyfriend's place in Bayonne and use the light rail to go back and forth between them as I prefer to not put more cars on the road. It's my main form of transportation.

Check Craigslist under the Parking section. I'm seeing a range of $100-$150 for spots near Journal Square. The cheaper ones are about 5 minutes away from the PATH and price increases with distance.

Yvonne, not sure if your reply was in response to mine. I was just saying I don't think a playground is necessary. I think recess is absolutely necessary for children, and I feel like it's getting shorter and shorter. :(

I moved next to Cordero School. I'm not sure how long their recess it, but it seems to just be a bunch of kids running around on the sidewalk. They have a couple of balls to play with, but no playground or anything. Honestly, I don't think they're necessary. My elementary school didn't get a playground until I was 10 and our creative minds took over. As long they can run around and play, socialize, get their energy out it works. It's not gym class. I wish kids got more time to play now a days. That's how they learn how the world works. It makes it easier to focus on their lessons when they are in class.

Some buildings do not allow you to bring your bikes in your apartment. All must be left in the bike room.

Only in Jersey City can we start a thread about refugees and bring up parking.

On a side note, I just returned from Canada. They looked at my passport and boarding pass. They did not ask if I had a job. They just waved me through. You don't need a visa to visit Canada. Of course you won't be able to work but nobody's stopping anyone from enjoying a nice vacation up north.

I start my tomatoes as seeds inside. As the days get warmer, I bring them outside during the day to get more sun, but bring them inside until there's no more chance of frost. We can have really hot days and still get a crop ruining frost.

We have to remember that we still live in a city. People do tend to have a false sense of security downtown. We had a break-in where the thief not only stole electronics, they also made out with the spare car key and came back the next day to steal the car. :/

I've lived in 5 apartments within the last five years, and my landlords have never changed any lightbulbs (even high ceiling ones). My boyfriend is a landlord and he doesn't change those either. He will, however, come in every few months and change any necessary filters for the heating system and fridge. Those are considered preventive maintenance while lightbulbs are consumables.

I'm a big fan of Alex's for dinner (not a run in pizza slice). My bf and I go regularly and I'm a big fan of starting with some pasta fagioli soup and then pollo all giambatta. Everytime we pass, we can't stop laughing because the owner will exclaim every single time, "Very fresh, very delicious"! Plus, it's byob and I'm on a budget so not complaining.

Used the passageway to catch the 4 uptown on Saturday. Since this transit hub is now a touristy place, it was ridiculous navigating the crowds of shoppers, gawker etc. The worst was the people just sitting on the stairs, oblivious to the fact that it's a passageway to the subway.

I've had enough of contacts and want to get Lasik done. I went for a consultation in Manhattan, but I'd prefer somewhere closer since someone will need to come with me to take me back home. Can anyone recommend any good Lasik doctors in Hudson County, preferably in JC? Thanks!

I think we may be talking about 2 separate developments. I'm speaking of the one on Marin between 8th and 9th (across from Hudson Tech). I walk past them daily and it definitely looks like a pile driver that they're using. It's a closed construction space, isn't taking up any parking, and isn't particularly messy. It's just loud. I believe I know which one you're talking about, though.

I moved right next to that school. You know what's distracting those kids? The pile driving for the new development a block away. It is ridiculously loud every morning and the sound reverberates. I have no idea how they concentrate. I hope people don't blame the teachers for the poor standardized test scores.
