drifter,

On current form, this should be good for a week off school!

The overreaction to these snowfalls gets more absurd each time.

Last time, not content with closing for one day, Jersey City schools closed the second day, despite no snow falling, because "there was a risk of ice".

Astonishingly ugly! I appreciate that can be said about most of these modern towers, but your average Lefrak tower, though bad, looks nicer than this carbuncle.

Soviet style brutalist architecture, out of scale and with no redeeming qualities.

On the rear side, which you can't see in the photos, is a huge windowless wall with channels of cinder-block covered with some green siding material. I can only pray that they intend to construct some other structure to cover that part, as the way it looks now is dire.

Anyone who is "hit by cars at least 6 times over a 2 month period." is clearly doing something wrong, and should stay safely inside at home.

Karl Mueller is off of Kennedy Boulevard near Saint Peter's.

Karl is patient and excellent at working with kids, he manages to handle my truculent eight year old son and get him playing well.

How is the land value portion calculated? Is there a formula based on lot size and location?

Examples I have looked at seem inconsistent, even for properties in the same neighbourhood.

I heard a rumor that the Lotus (no longer Blue Lotus) Indian restaurant in Vladimir's space on Erie at Eighth Street is up for sale again, though I can't find it mentioned anywhere.

The food in the latest incarnation was/is decent, didn't seem to change much when switching from Blue Lotus to Lotus.

So attorney Mark Steier is going to sue the city, that will clearly help keep taxes down for everyone.

Newport Mall is a good deal, around $100 per month, if you are a resident of Hamilton Park area you receive a discount.

Re: NJ Rates Your Public Schools - What's Your PS Score?

If you have a connection with another country, may be worth considering that option for college.

My loosely-formed plan is to send my daughter to University back home in England. Unfortunately, despite her and me having British passports, we will have to pay foreign student rate in England as I have been in USA so long and am now tax domiciled here.

However, even the foreign student rates at UK Universities are considerably lower than those for USA colleges.

I know a few other ex-pat families planning similar.

Both Ezpass and toll booths have already been made redundant by number plate recognition technology.

Just drive on the road and the toll is charged to your account, is done on roads in England.

Re: N.J. to turn 240 acres of Liberty State Park into wildlife oasis

Agreed Brewster, there is a huge need for sports fields in Jersey City, Liberty State Park could fit a dozen, and still have plenty of quiet nature space left.

Another thing they should put in Liberty State Park is the mother of all dog runs, some massive 20 acre thing, I don't have a dog, just want dog-people to have somewhere to go.

On all of them you will be presented with many dealers posing as private sellers, but there are genuine sellers in there too, you can generally tell after perusing the ads awhile. Even if you can't tell, you're no worse off than going straight to a dealer, at least this way you have a concrete price you are working with.

The noitceboards around Hamilton park sometimes have cars too.

Buy from an individual instead of a used car dealer.
Plenty of cars advertised locally.

My understanding is that the beautiful ceiling you describe collapsed, which caused the emergency closure of the bank, Cosi and the Dunkin' Donuts.

The building was declared unsafe and closed while major renovation and construction work was undertaken to turn it into the hotel.

When they say Tuesday and Friday, they actually mean Monday night and Thursday night. As garbage collection happens in the early morning hours, they confusingly refer to it as the day after what everyone else thinks of it as.

Recycling is collected on Thursday night in all of downtown.

If you are serious about ridding yourself of mice, you must find the holes where they are getting in and block them up. This might mean serious work, opening walls, pulling out sheetrock, it is a big job especially in older houses.

Exterminators will charge you every month forever, and will never rid you of mice. There are unlimited mice in this world, they will keep returning while there are gaps through which they can do so.
