Sorry for the misunderstanding, but the 8th and HP happened in the evening (if you're referring to the one I referred to in the thread I created). Although the way things are going, you might be referring to something else...


It was your post, I assumed it was daytime. Now I see that no time was mentioned. Ass (not u) me. Sorry.

It's not right for anyone to have to live in fear, high rents or low rents!

Maybe you can check some area pawn shops for the jewelry?

What a nightmare!

I saw Dr.Dmitry Khasak more than a year ago. A very pleasant young fellow. His office is in Newport (above Kim's Video), not exactly in downtown JC. Office# (201) 626-4040, 100 Pavonia Ave. Suite 409. Good luck!


I'll second Dr. Khasak!
However... be warned. It's one of those offices that sets appointments but is actually first come, first serve.

I think sarcasm does not translate well in message boards. I was being sarcastic about the au pair. Also, the jet ski. I'll refrain from sarcasm in future posts.

I think the apartment complex sounds great. It's a good "new face of public housing." I hope more are built.

I checked and I'm eligible for a low or moderate income range apartment at Dixon Mills! And I have a masters degree. Please don't call me lazy. I will not mug you, CANKICKER, I promise... not sarcasm. I'm sad to read that you didn't have heat when you grew up. Terrible! It strengthened you, I understand, but how can you wish that situation upon someone else?

Don't forget they have to pay for dental visits for the kid and supplemental health insurance (because medicare sucks-- if you can get it), and possibly a car to get to work in the 'burbs. Don't forget costs for baby clothes, baby formula, cell phone bills, food costs etc. Also, you get withholdings on payroll taxes. I doubt they can hire an au pair. Also, you need to be able to put at least 10 percent of your income into savings in case you lose your job.

Sorry about the math, I didn't look up the NJ minimum wage. Yup, they are earning so much more than $5.15 and hour that they can hire an au pair and she/he can live in the second bedroom with the child.

Has anyone read Life and Death of Great American Cities?
I love Jane Jacobs. This apartment complex seems to be born of her ideas for mixed use/mixed income neighborhoods.

Actually, assuming the $300 a month rent cited in the article, it costs about 28.14% of gross salary (NJ's minimum wage is currently $6.15/hr) and as of October 1, 2006 (when the rate rises to $7.15/hr) it will cost about 24.2%. Of course that's ONE person with a minimum wage job and for the TWO bedroom.

CANKICKER

I'm speaking specifically about the apartment complex in the article... and it's not Free for Entitled people. It costs over 30% of a minimum wage monthly income.

So you are assuming that the people who get the 'low-income' apartments are not part of the poor working class?

I'm assuming that they are working and not earning enough for a decent apartment anywhere else. So, they got a great opportunity for an apartment at this new complex of mixed income tenants. Good for them. I'm jealous. I could buy a jet-ski with all that saved income.

You are absolute right that it is NOT fair for a hardworking person to fund someone else's lazy lifestyle. How could anyone argue with that, except for a teenager?

I wish I could make a little quote box.

You don't offend me Bdlaw. I oppose the handout mentality too as described on this thread, wherein the recipients are lazy, mugging thugs. I just wanted to point out that a lot of poor people work really hard and barely get by. Compassion, you know? Maybe I'm naive.

Ha ha ha. Maybe those people are working their asses off earning minimum wage and they can finally live somewhere safe for their own children.

A minimum wage job yields less than a thousand dollars, untaxed, a month. A $300 apartment takes up a good portion of that money... It's not a luxury, people need subsidized apartments!

The "Hope VI" grant appears to be a US Dept. of Housing grant, not local.

Private investors paid for the other apartments.

Cool... but have you checked out the copyright issues regarding the I "heart" NJ, JC, etc.?
This is an article from Business week, 7/18/05 (I'll send the link if you want.):

"BRAND BATTLES
New York Loves Its Trademark

New York officials show no mercy in their bid to protect the "I ♥ New York" logo. The trademark, supplied free of charge by graphic designer Milton Glaser in 1976, helps beckon 140 million tourists to the Empire State each year. As others tried to tap the design over the years, state legal eagles have filed close to 3,000 trademark objections.

Apparel company 4 KAMM International is incensed at New York's pending effort to halt the use of "I ♥" SF, Las Vegas, and Paris on everything from bumper stickers to calendars. Last year, New York shut down "I ♥ Yoga" T-shirts produced by a Florida Bikram yoga outfit. And in October, the U.S. Trademark & Patent Office is expected to hear a case filed by Michael Stewart, a clothing designer in Raleigh, N.C., challenging New York's opposition to "I ♥ NC."

Lawyers say Stewart's case is stronger than most because of coloring differences and a change in the heart's look. New York says this is about protecting a logo, not upping licensing fees, which totaled $900,000 in the past five years. "We aren't in the business of taking apologies," says Jonathan Faber, a lawyer at Collins, McDonald & Gann, which represents the state.
