Prestos Italian in Paulus Hook is now La Côte French/Italian
#1

Newbie


Saw the rebrand on the street, painted the whole interior white and it was Prestos for the last month. Just the other day must have switched over. Yelp says prestos is closed and La Côte is at same address with one review.

This sounds like your 5-year state inspection for multiple dwellings (click on inspections). The same kind of inspection occurred recently in my condo. Someone from the condo association, maintenance and an inspector entered my unit, made sure items were up to code and we had proper detectors. They were in and out of my 2-bedroom unit in less than 10 minutes.

And for what it's worth, I felt like my dad was inspecting my bedroom to make sure it was clean when I was a kid. Intrusive? Yup. Necessary? Considering the way some people live in our building, oh yeah.


Thanks for the link. Sounds like they can vary quite a bit in terms of strictness. I am currently doing renovations in a bathroom, needed to replace old cracked tile and some outlets that were neglected.

Required in unit building inspection notices around 07302, what gives?
#3

On my building in Paulus Hook (small 7 unit brownstone) and a larger building (150 Bay Street), I noticed State of NJ inspection notices that require entry to each unit. Anyone seen these before?

Seems intrusive, is it for fire safety? Anything I should be worried about?

Re: Healthiest Restaurants in JC?

Schwarma, Cafe batata, or Hamilton Pork healthy? I hope those were sarcastic.

John's kitchen cafe has some decent cooked vegetable dishes, but their salads came on standard diner ice berg lettuce.

There is room for some actual salad lunch/takeaway places downtown, that are not "organic" markets. Subia's or Hudson Greene Market focus mostly on importing retail products on shelves, not much fresh to go.

There are plans for a Sunac's Natural Market opening (which has custom salad and fresh healthy togo options currently only in NYC) http://jerseydigs.com/columbus-towers ... and-sunac-natural-market/

Short Grain has some options for salad and their avocado toast is a real treat.

Koro Koro rice balls, although not salad, are tasty and are not fried/minimal oil, especially the vegetarian ones.

Newport mall food court has an actual salad place, but navigating a mall food court to eat salad regularly is time consuming.

I think there is a definite lack of fast fresh options. Sure you can order salad on a restaurant menu somewhere (usually loaded with cheese and oily dressings), but the wealth of options in Hoboken/Manhattan even in terms of non-franchises is pretty polarizing.

450K for a liquor license, and 2 year lease with "extended lease possibilities." and room for about 20 people max. I speculate pulling out of a sinking ship.

Home/Apartment Inspector Recommendation

Newbie

Recently entered the apartment purchase process. I had a recommendation from our buying agent, but found some less than convincing reviews for that inspector. Anyone know a good inspector for DTJC? Most I see with good reviews (yelp) only service NYC area, and are NY State certified.

Re: Howling Noise VVP

It is the new building being constructed at Gulls Cove. Its just diagonal across the light rail tracks from Zeppelin Hall. The wind is howling through it and making odd noises with the protective scaffolding/orange mesh wrapping around. I can hear it every day around VVP. It has been getting louder in the past few weeks as the building is erected.

"A Jersey City Planning Board document from June, however, indicates that the project has been reduced to 76 stories and 743 units"

So it won't be NJ's tallest building anymore. Not sure if that would be a draw anyway.

Soft opening happened Saturday, had a cocktail. No food yet, hence the soft launch. Really nice interior, obviously from the look of the website it has a "hunting lodge" feel with high booth backs. The best part, NO TVs.

with zoning its very hard to go backwards, so better to come up with a plan before moving forward.

everyone should be concerned, because most everyone is impacted.


So many Chicken Little types in here... How is passing an AirBnB tax going to bring about any of those dangers and pitfalls into reality?? At the end of the day, how's having an AirBnB guest any different than having a relative or friend visiting and staying with you? Or, opening your home to house sitter while you are out of town?? Yes, someone is paying you to stay there, but what's the big deal? Do people here really believe that because the city is approving a new use tax for AirBnB rentals that will somehow convince hordes of people to start renting their apartments or rooms on AirBnB?? I don't get it.


Agreed. Anyone commenting in this regard likely doesn't have much experience with the platform. Its a reputation based system so there is quite a bit of upkeep. A single negative review is much more detrimental than it would be on a service like Yelp! You need your space to be quite clean. You can certainly pass these cleaning costs off to the renter via the platform but that disincentivizes your rental compared to a cheaper listing or cuts into your bottom line.

Hosts are also tracked based on their response rate and response time to inquiries. This does quickly become unmanageable when you are fielding messages from Europeans attempting to low ball your rental rate with some bleeding heart story.

In my experience, most renters are looking to stay in JC over the weekend. This leaves a lot of holes in your monthly calendar and drops your overall income significantly. You'll be forced to slash prices during the week to make what the same as, or more than you would if you simply leased the apartment at market rate.


This is 100% correct.

How many random craigslist subletters are living just under your nose? When it's unseen, no one seems to care. When it's a new platform, that does all this subletting and vacation renting better, with the added benefits of verification, host statistics/reviews it alleviates the anonymity for people trying to fill short stays, sublets and extra rooms.

Aside from all the negatives, money grabs and renter/landlord issues, there is still an overwhelming positive of the tourism revenue in JC. Many businesses will profit.

Also, the amount of verification and insurance that Airbnb imparts to protect landlords and guests is actually quite substantial. Actual Driver's Licenses are verified, credit cards must match. I won't go into the fine print, but its not a bunch of scumbags who want to wipe shit on the walls. People resistant to change and technology don't understand it, and old school landlords/renters should either adapt and potentially profit from it, or stop complaining. The competition around staging your place, and having verified Airbnb photos so your house looks better than one down the block just makes a better neighborhood for everybody.

They have $1M damages insurance attached to any stay. The amount of personal interaction with people who are staying with you, or in your place also makes it safer than random craigslist sublets.

I saw her, Devin Manibo, being filmed this morning around 10AM with her back to the Silverman building. Probably some reaction about the graffiti. Didn't hear anything she was saying.

Classic dramatization. There is no dress code, just don't dress like a scumbag. If you call up and ask about a dress code, I'm sure any employee that feels proud of their job in a nice new restaurant would say something like "Well, dress nice I guess". Meaning don't walk in there wearing an Under Armor singlet and yellowed Court Classics. Dress and act like an adult, and you'll have no problem. I've been there, know 3 people who work there and the bouncers are the from the same company/rotation as Barcade/Lucky 7's.

It's also week one of public opening. Expect a good amount of people making it an event to go to a restaurant opening weekend. Expect people hanging out there getting used to the menu, making reservations, trying out drinks and meeting bartenders etc.

I know Duane Reade has a few by Grove St., but I would like to peruse more than just the defacto Times, People and celebrity rags. Where can I buy a New Yorker? A Lucky Peach? A Cooks Illustrated?

Re: Jersey City seeking to commission dozens of murals citywide
#17
Newbie

I personally don't have an artistic opinion/critique for any of the mural initiatives I've seen downtown or otherwise in JC. What I can tell you, as a resident with a backyard facing an alley with many murals and cleanups organized, it is for the better.

Anything, and I mean anything, composed to look at, is better than racial slurs and 3AM "throwies" comprised of single line unintelligible wisps of spray paint.

I participated in the cleanup of my alley (firelane), which was organized by the city, primer paint donated and building owners asked for permission. We cleared out truckloads of garbage, glass, debris, furniture, needles etc. In a year there are many murals up, which are nice to look at. People walk their dogs and stop to take pictures. 3AM "throwies" and the always clever "poop f***" tags do not occur on the murals, they occur on the buildings of people who objected to the murals. Keep it up please.
