Re: JC MTBrs, where do you ride?

Looking for technical challenge or scenery?

I can't speak to the first, but up the waterfront to 9W and into Rockland County is delightful.

There are 3 non-asphalt trails (Raymond G. Esposito Memorial Trail, Old Erie Path and Joseph B. Clark Trail) up there. You will encounter joggers and dog-walkers, but the folks I've run into have been pretty friendly.

They're only a couple miles long but with great views of the Tappan Zee Bridge. The catch is, you have to ride 30 miles to Sparkill to get there, so not really "somewhat" close. But certainly bikeable.

And the really fun downhill on the way there is a really really tough uphill on the way back, even on a road bike. On an MTB, it's granny gear all the way. Still, I try to do it at least a couple times a season.

Go on a Sunday, when the Bergen County blue laws keep the stores closed and traffic on River Road is less murderous.

Re: Bike routes in JC other than waterfront?

T-Bird below mentioned Palisades Interstate Park, which is a very cool ride - when you cross under the GWB you can look across the river and see the Little Red Lighthouse of children's book fame.

If you keep going up River Road past the park entrance and past the GWB, you'll get to Route 9W which will ultimately take you over the NJ/NY border into Nyack and beyond. Cool view of the Tappan Zee. I believe it's part of the route used for the century portion of the annual triathalon although they do come through the park as well. Fairly low traffic, lots of bikers, hilly but not daunting.

Take some time to reflect on the ghost bike in Alpine: http://ghostbikes.org/bergen-county/camille-savoy

Re: Liberty run a hoax!!

The City received a number of refund requests emailed to the webadmin account. These were forwarded to the Liberty Run organizers. Their last communication appears below:

I apologize for the delay, but with the volume of emails we had coming in, your email went to the spam file. I have been slow getting through them and I apologize for that.

Our plan is to get everyone who wants a refund to them as soon as we can.

Initially we were going to try and refund through the registration site, but Active doesn't get involved with refunds as stated in their no refund policy, so the most practical way is to send us the place we can mail you the refund to this office@lrmg.org Just include your registration number so we can verify registration for our records. (yes believe it or not, we have come across quite a few less than honest people in this process) and we will get your refund out to you in the order that we received it.

Again, I apologize for having to put our runners through this process, understanding that there is a lot of effort and sacrifice involved but we are refunding and we will get it to you. If you’re trying to call us, please understand that we don't have a large phone answering service, it isn't possible to return all of the calls, it would take us to forever to get back to everyone and for that I also apologize.

Thanks
Dave

Re: City Foreclosure Site?
#12

If you're referring to property tax liens and foreclosures, the City currently does not advertise those on the official website.

The City Tax lien sale usually takes place in June, just prior to the end of the fiscal year (Jul 1 - Jun 30). There may also be a water lien sale during the year. Lien sales are required to be advertised twice in the local paper of record, and property owners are required to be noticed twice. Note, these are for municipalities on the state fiscal year. Calendar year municipalities can advertise 4 weeks prior to the sale, but since the fiscal year process can't start until the 11th day of the 11th month of the fiscal year, it's called an "accelerated sale".

If an outside buyer (investor) purchases a tax lien, they may foreclose after 2 years, providing they have also paid the subsequent taxes. It's the subs and the time that make this a tough game for the individual investor, although there are several small investors who do quite well and who are familiar attendees at Jersey City's, Newark's, and other sales.

In my experience, tax collectors make it clear prior to the start of the sale that "if you're here to buy your neighbor's house and evict them, you have a misconception about the process". At this point, several people get up and leave.

At any time (and often even after - called a vacated judgment) up to the time of foreclosure, the property owner can redeem the tax sale certificate and pay the back taxes, fees, and interest.

If the lien is held by the City (those properties for which liens are not purchased during the lien sale), foreclosure proceedings can begin after 6 months. Again, the property owner always has the right of redemption.

Foreclosures are also required to be advertised, but currently not on the website. That is the perogative of the Tax Collector and the Administration.

Again, if you're looking to obtain a property for unpaid taxes, you have to purchase the lien, pay the subs (otherwise some else can purchase the following year's lien), and see it through to the end.

Now, if you're referring to missed mortgage payments, the City would have no info on that.

N.J.S.A. 54 covers taxation in more detail than you'd ever want to know, and the legislature's website is not terribly user friendly.

Re: 264-286 9th Street Condo Building
#14

Newbie


We lived there when we first moved to JC. It was 25 years ago, so keep that in mind. We were in unit 3M as I recall, in one of the units closer to Jersey Ave.

Our only complaint, which eventually drove us to hire a lawyer and break our lease, was the noise from above and below. We had incredibly loud and inconsiderate neighbors, one of whom ran a beauty salon out of her apartment, and both of whom thought it was their right to blast music at all hours of the night and day. We never heard a peep from neighbors on either side, probably due to double courses of brick.

The other idiosyncracy was that (and I'm assuming this had to do with the historic restoration) the air conditioners were mounted on built in bookcases so that they were actually fully inside the apartment. You had to open the windows in order to exhaust the hot air and there was no weatherstripping around them. Very weird.

The floors were somewhat sloped as you would expect in buildings of that age.

Again, 25 years ago.

Yes, he used to be Presiding Judge of the Jersey City Municipal Court (not New Jersey Municipal Court), and yes, my comments about your website still apply (especially since you haven't made simple corrections).

ok.

Wrong official website (.com not .org)

Wrong presiding judge (but you spelled the wrong judge's name wrong anyway) s/b Judge Wanda Molina

Generally bad writing - especially that "big city crime" crap.

And what's the point of the website anyway? Who are you drumming up business for?

Verdict? Guilty. Of Lameness.

The bottom line is this: the Erie school is probably a good option for fairly low-key kids.


Speaking from unfortunate experience, I can echo the above.

Children who are compliant and quiet fit right in. Otherwise, you may have a problem.

Also, check the adult/child ratio. When we were there it was 1/15 with an age range of 3-7 which made for chaos. When the adult spent time with the younger kids, the older kids were bored. When the adult focused on the older kids, the younger kids went wild. Among other things, we made an issue of that and were "asked" to leave.

Not recommended.

As far as city government providing free internet access, this would be very costly with WiFi because each antenna can only reach a 500' radius... However there is a new technology emerging called WiMAX IEEE 802.16. A WiMAX antenna can reach 30 miles and WiMAX is much faster than DSL or Road Runner.


"mesh" networks are surprisingly cheap ($100,000/sq mi)
