Does anyone have a recommendation for a good HVAC service company in the area? Looks like my air conditioning unit needs some maintenance...

Thanks!

I hate to say it, but I totally agree. Tear what's left of it down and make a park. I've been hearing these preservation promises for over ten years now. Enough is enough.

Disappointed with the "new' ACME. Very minor changes and updates from A&P. Meat still expires in one or two days. Produce still below average. Overall, no significant changes at all. Layout remained exactly the same. I'm hoping that the management will be better, but that remains to be seen.

If by "chlorine" you mean "human feces", then yes, I have also noticed the same thing with my water.

Nope. It's the former Kitchen Cafe. The place doesn't really jump out at you from the street. You can easily walk by and not even know it's there. Corner of Greene and Sussex.

I've been there twice now and the food has been excellent both times. BYO is always nice too. Hope this place does well.

Why is that every other city I've been to has relatively odor-free storm sewers on the streets. The ones in JC smell like raw sewage. What's the deal with that?

My condo building had every bike on our bike rack stolen. The bike rack is in the basement/parking garage area. We're not sure how they got in, but they probably stole over 20 bikes. The building is near Exchange Place in Paulus Hook.

Quick math here.... 8 million divided by 82 equals approx $100k per position correct? Does that seem a little on the high side to anyone? I've been reading too many articles lately about cops, firemen, and teachers making over 100k in NJ. I wish I knew that before I pissed away all of that money on undergrad and grad school!

I put down a $250 fully refundable deposit on a car at the Nissan dealer. Decided not to buy it and they refused to refund my money. Eventually I had to call my credit card company and declare the charge as fraudulent. Total scumbags there (at least the people I dealt with).

HDTV over the air reception

Does anyone here use an antennas for their HDTV signals? If so, how is the quality? From what I've seen, some people don't get a really strong signal and that causes the picture to freeze up frequently. Is that the case here in JC, or is it strong enough where it's as reliable as the signal from Comcast (no pixelating, no freezing, etc)?

Re: Liberty State Park Incident
#23

I was sitting on a bench with my girlfriend in that park by the Colgate Clock one summer night around 10:15pm. Apparently the "park" closes at 10pm. I had no clue. These two officers came up behind us, shined two flashlights in our eyes, and began questioning us in an extremely aggressive manner. They were acting as if we were doing something suspicious like pacing back and forth with a large package inside a subway stop or something. I had to show the officer my license and explain why I accidentally “broke the law”. They then escorted us out of the park (literally). As we left I saw them spot another couple enjoying a walk in the park and they went off to reprimand them as well. A simple, “Hey guys, the park is closed”, would have sufficed. Total d-bags.

Actually, if you think the park police are bad, good luck dealing with the JCPD. They're the most arrogant cops I've ever encountered. They really need to take a step back and realize who's paying their salary. I have more respect for rent-a-cops at the mall. It’s so refreshing when you deal with a state trooper. They’re very stern, but at least fair and professional. Let’s face it though, local cops aren’t qualified to be Troopers, that’s why they’re local cops. You just have to tolerate their nonsense, or if they really cross the line, contact internal affairs.

Re: thoughts on 61 grad street - grand view
#24
Quite a regular

The Grandview doesn't really have any significant amenities (small cardio room in the basement and a fairly small backyard for parties and grilling), but that's why the condo fee is only $225 per month. It all depends what you're looking for. The other condo buildings all have more amenities, but you're paying through the nose for them whether you use them or not. Most condo fees in the "luxury" buildings have fees of $600 and up from what I've seen. The really decked out buildings like Trump, Beacon, 77 Hudson, etc. will be closer to $850 per month in fees for a 1BR. Since it's not principal, and it can't be deducted from your income, this is just money burned if you're not constantly using the amenities. Also, during times like this when the buildings are not fully occupied, the condo fees are always at risk of being raised significantly since fewer owners are now carrying the financial burden. Just something to think about.

There are people in Manhattan who refuse to go above 100 st or to an outter boro or worst of all to "Jersey"! I am gathering from this thread that this type of thing happens in Jersey City too with some people from the waterfront.


Wow, that was a very touching entry. Almost made me shed a tear!

The fact that some residents of Manhattan look down on the borough and JC is due to ignorance. They truly don't realize that there are nice areas outside of the city. Areas that they themselves would like, if they actually ventured out to see them in person. Not quite the same as what you're alluding to. I don't think of the Beacon's area as a dump simply because it's not near the waterfront. I've been to that area. In fact, I drive by the Beacon twice a day. It's NOT a nice neighborhood. It' not. Period. This thread is so ridiculous. A bunch of Beacon residents arguing with the rest of JC about how nice that part of JC is.

If we just agree with you, maybe you'll finally stop campaigning for the neighborhood. You're right, the area is gorgeous. Montgomery Gardens is a beautiful complex. Oh, and that run-down strip mall across Montgomery is wonderful. I'm always tempted to stop in and do some shopping at the dollar store there! The south side of the Beacon is another hidden gem of JC. A bunch of chop shops and deserted lots. Sort of reminds me of the area near Shea Stadium. Truly magnificent!!!

Do you ever make a post that isn't an attempt to "sell" the Beacon?

FYI, the buildings are not comparable, and they're both grossly overpriced for different reasons.

Have you ever heard of "comps"? Go get an appraisal in a few months after the dust has settled from this auction. The recent comps that the appraiser will pull will be these auctioned off units. So yes, absolutely these auctions will affect the value of YOUR property. Not in a good way either.

As far as the dog park goes... you're telling me that the residents requested a temporary dog park that looks like a chicken coop be built and placed front and center for all to see instead of around the back or side of the complex? Wow, you guys are in trouble.

I can guarantee you that the Beacon is not 75% "owner occupied". That's different than "occupied". Every condo that is either unsold, or being occupied by a renter counts against the total. I'd say that the average luxury condo building in JC is about 50-65% owner occupied right now due to the economy. Makes it VERY difficult to get financing at competitive rates.
