Re: Apt to rent near Journal Square Path Station

We have a 1000 sqft 2 bedroom at 55 Skillman with a parking space for under 2K. Great building, great location, lots of families. No central air but there is a gym, roof deck, laundry room, live-in super, etc. It's about 3 blocks to Newark Ave where you can catch the 80 bus downtown, or about 8 blocks to JSQ PATH.

Petition to rejuvenate Pershing Field Playground
#2

Please consider signing & sharing this petition. Pershing Field is sorely in need of some maintenance & TLC. It has amazing potential & is located in part of the city where green space is sparse.

Thanks for your consideration!

As a general trend, I find the idea of 20K a year to be troubling and not great for the prospects of attracting and keeping young families in the area.


this is so, so true. we definitely cannot afford to continue living like this and will probably wind up moving to a more affordable 'burb in the near future, to be honest. i can't even imagine trying to have more than one kid!

it is an incredible expense! it's more than half my net take-home pay. we currently attend an absolutely fantastic daycare for $410/week in Brooklyn. that was the least expensive option we found in our neighborhood. every other daycare was $500/week or more.

that being said... if you think of it in terms of hours- $410 a week for 9 hours per day, it's only about $9/hr which is a lot more affordable than a nanny which usually starts around $15/hr.

yes, having to drive is a deal breaker for us unfortunately, as I work in Manhattan and I need to be able to get to the daycare by 5:30pm via PATH.

something i am noticing as I search is that in JC there seem to be a lot more "preschools" as a opposed to daycares. the difference being that they are on a school schedule and are closed for 3 weeks of vacation per year, and have summer camps instead of year round care.

Thank you for your responses so far.

River School is a bit out of our price range.

Garden Preschool looks nice- I will keep it in mind for the future!

Keep em coming, please!

daycare feedback & recommendations

Hi all,

We are planning to move to JC April 1st with our 18 month old. I am in the process of touring daycares and I would love to get some feedback, or recommendations on any place I should check out. We are looking for full time care, M-F 9-5:30 or 6 pm. Budget is about $400/week.

I have been to the following:

Growing Trees II
Viaquenti
Learning Ladders

Is there a wonderful place that I haven't found yet? Would you mind sharing your experiences?

Thank you!
