Her mom must be pretty smart too, homeschooling through high school!

My daughter's 9th grade maths and physics has me flummoxed.

I don't think you can clip a high-end hardened steel D-lock like the Kryptonite in Brewster's picture with bolt-cutters, not with 3' ones, perhaps with 6' cutters you could (6' bolt-cutters will snip most chains too!)

On You-Tube there are videos of cropping low-end Kryptonite locks, and even then, watch the struggle they usually have.

I think Brewster's photo has been cut with an angle-grinder or hacksaw, look how smooth the cut is, when something is cropped it will have the depression indents where the jaws bit, and be more uneven.

If someone can find evidence of a hardened D-lock being cropped I'll stand corrected, but I have not seen or heard anything first hand.

Henderson Lumber no good?

Not that I expect them to stay open much longer, they are surely in for a much greater windfall then Pallisades when they sell up to build some disproportionate condo-monstrosity.

I checked and it is Rebecca Symes herself, general counsel for Dixon Properties, who is also president of the Harsimus Cove Neighborhood Association.

I am with you Wishful, this is a recent phenomena over past 5-6 years.

Yes, news media have always hyped storms, but this idea of preemptively and often unnecessarily closing things down has taken off only recently.

Why shutdown things before you know it is necessary? Why not wait and see what conditions actually turn out like?

Activist Crossing Guards.
#12
Home away from home
Home away from home


Does anyone know the bounds of responsibilities and duties of the crossing guards?

All over downtown I encounter "activist" crossing guards, who go beyond helping people across the road and take on the task of directing all traffic through 'their' junction, often doing a poor job of it and causing more confusion and danger than they resolve.

Are they authorised to do this? Or are they supposed to stick to stopping traffic to let people cross, and then getting out of the way again afterwards?

Chris at CKP construction, 201-332-6699.

He fabricated a replacement cornice for me from scratch to match historic photos at 249 Second Street, go-past and have a look, it's lovely. CKP seem to be the masters of this kind of work in Jersey City.

He is known and trusted by the historical preservation officer/department, which makes getting historical approval far smoother if you are in one of the historic districts.

Negative parts are: 1. difficult getting in his schedule, things can drag on waiting for him to actually begin work, 2. It's not cheap!

Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval
#21
Home away from home
Home away from home


I understand taxes are going to go up a lot on many downtown properties, but there is a big difference between 1.7% and 2% (or 2.2% as I believe Bodipooh speculated in some of his earlier missives).

The fact is we just don't know what the rate we will be, the only thing we can say is that if the appraisals are done correctly a $1 million house downtown should end up paying 4 times as much as a $250,000 place in the heights. Now if the heights house is actually valued at $500,000 (extended over the whole heights), it 'reduces' the downtown home's tax to only twice what the heights house is paying.

If you have been watching the market in the past two years it is not just downtown prices that are on the boil.

Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval

The way house prices have appreciated over the past couple of years will naturally lead to a fall in the tax rate, otherwise they are going to be collecting double the taxes they were previously.

Bodipooh bandies this 2% figure about, but it is based on nothing more than his own speculation.

1 or 2 family houses in the heights are now worth $400,000+, every one or two family in Journal Square is now worth $600,000+, if they all pay 2% the city would end up with too much money!

A very tall person could probably hit their head, you are right.

The way they have pruned it is horrible though, destroyed the whole spread of the tree, will take many years to return to its former beauty.

Re: tree slaughter on Erie Street

The city [I assume it was they] severely pruned the large cherry tree in front of my house in Hamilton Park today. The work if not slaughter, is at least butchery, none of the other trees on my block seem to have been touched, odd.

Being a cherry tree, it wasn't tall enough to interfere with any power lines; it wasn't obstructing the sidewalk, or otherwise problematic.

Any ideas why this would be done?
