Can Saint Anthony's and some of the Prep property be far behind?

I fear that the Church is going into the real estate business big time ala Two Guys/Vornado years ago. and Sears today.

In the suburbs these real estate deals can be easily absorbed, but in the urban areas like JC it'll only add to increased density, congestion and other issues.


So you mean Junkies milling around stroller Mom's is not a good thing?

I have a friend who bought a craftsman style house about 15 years ago. he put down laminate and now they look cheap. he keeps talking about painting in order to make the place look nicer. I told him that no amount of painting is going to overcome the problem of his floors. I told him to look into porcelain that looks like wood, or even engineered wood floors.

any recommendations for something that will look good after 50 years? he says the wood floors are in such poor shape that they can't be sanded. I doubt this since I got my hardwood floors to great even after being covered in vinyl



I found the laminate floors end up look cheap as well but maybe with the newer more durable types that is not case, the attached image shows the different materials in the layering system and the variety of colors is very good.

Ceramic plank tiles with wood grain are very nice my issue is chipping and cracking and you'll pay 5x to 7x as much to lay that
then laminate.

Hardwood floors are what I am going over, they are great but have a lifespan after being refinished a few times although they are original to this apartment that is close to 100 years old and that is not too shabby of a return on investment.

Where you can't go under existing molding, how are you trapping the edges?

Just running clamshell molding over it ?

Looks nice but very pricey, the 5mm planks from Lumber Liquidators I'm currently installing are half that. I'd buy it if I was replacing 8mm laminate, so the molding undercuts matched.



I revisited some of the laminate today and the newer stuff is made much better, the hard top coating seems very durable
with a rubber or cork type base - looks quite good actually.

What are you cutting the panels with when needing to made edges or openings say for radiator legs?

The stuff I looked at advertised a 20 year lifespan and the hard top surface has me wondering how to get clean cuts.

If you're addressing me, the products I'm using all float. That way you can pull it up and replace a plank if it comes to that. The subfloor can be quite bad and it will still be fine. For what you linked or what's commonly called 'linoleum tile' AKA vinyl composition tile or VCT, that needs a perfect subfloor to glue down to. I'd NEVER do the peel and stick, been there done that. Comes up.



The tongue and groove floating systems I find can buckle and not particularly overly durable unless adhesive is used underneath them.

What is the most durable type flooring that can placed in an apartment.

Not ceramic tiles that crack, hardwood flooring is ok but scratches and needs resurfacing.

Laminate flooring ends up wearing and peeling after time.

So apart from laying down sheets of diamond plate what works best?

While the thread is about floods, I still remember being on Route 440 opposite Home Depot, seeing cars under water from a heavy rain. Mayor Fulop wants to build a new community, Bayfront, which is in the same location. He is putting more people in danger of floods and we, the public, will be responsible since this will be a public partnership. That does not make sense.


“He is putting more people in danger of floods and we, the public, will be responsible since this will be a public partnership”

LOL…the the flooding on the portion of rt 440/Kellogg in front of the La Mexicana (former Colonette) restaurant is never high enough to cover a car maybe it would go to the door jam if that. Yes that sewer has been getting over whelmed for years during heavy rain storms. Yes it may block one lane of rt 440/Kellogg while it slowly drains and some drivers do foolishly plow through it and stall but I have never seen a car under water from it. Nice stretch in trying to knock anything Mayor Fulop does. (as usual)

laughed. out. loud.

but okay seriously, for we shiksas who believe that french toast should only be made with challah, where can we find it downtown? I'm using the brioche from the Korean on Bay Street, which is a fine substitute, but not perfect.



Best challah around is found at
B&H Dairy on Second Ave off 8th Street.
They sell full freshly baked loaves that will knock
your argyle socks off.
Have a bowl of borscht when there as well.
Not sure where in JC you can find the good stuff
but maybe the Penguins moving in to MLK will open a
bakery soon.....

Can you provide a link to the organization or Rabbi that certifies them as kosher?


Why don't you actually contact them and ask about their hechsher if that's a concern of yours???


I did, and one should be more careful about spouting out terms they minimally know about. You do understand there are standards, and different people may observe these standards differently, but to spout a general statement, making yourself a self proclaimed expert is irresponsible.

And a happy new year to you!

Big pay raises on the way for Jersey City council aides
