Please source your assertion. Not saying it's not true, but random person on the internet saying something does not count as fact.

As said earlier, if new construction you need a C/O, but otherwise the C/O continues to be valid. You may be confused because some towns require a CCO (cert. of continued occupancy) but last I heard JC doesn't do this.

Re: Solomon, please provide info on his planning experience. He has background in policy but not planning, best as I can tell, and in fact some of his platform is rather contrary to what would be considered traditionally "good planning." Open to the info you may have on his background.

Re: Paintless Dent Repair recommendations?

For anyone still following this, I wound up finding and using Tri-State Dent Removal out of Rutherford. They are a mobile service and came to me, completed the job on-street in just about 45 minutes, and the car looks great for significantly less than traditional body work. Very friendly service, too.

He did great in Jc when it was the only show in town. But I guess just couldn't keep up with all the other great paces opening up there. like cellar 335 that are being run by experienced hospitality people.


Who are you that you first accuse someone of suspected substance abuse and then advertise for Cellar 335? Come on now.

I have scuffs on my rear bumper - what I meant was that this was the first dent/ding I've gotten in the 15 years of parking downtown. And that wasn't even gotten while parked on the street, but rather in a parking lot!

Jersey City 5th-most expensive in country to rent 1-bedroom apartment: report

Jersey City has always been seen as an inexpensive alternative to living in New York City, but it certainly isn't cheap to live in New Jersey's second largest city.

In fact, Jersey City is the fifth most expensive city in the country to rent a one-bedroom apartment, according to a personal finance website.

The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment here is a cool $2,200 a month, gobankingrates.com said. Jersey City ranked behind only San Francisco ($3,395), San Jose, California ($2,505), New York ($2,395) and Washington, D.C. ($2,271

Re: Cell phone antennas in PAD
#13
Home away from home
Home away from home


In order to get an approval they almost always show a coverage map. Do you know that the same carrier has antennas on top of 150 Bay? Because one might be AT&T and the other might be Verizon.

Also, to address the two neighbors across the street from one another - wireless signals are more or less a line of sight. So it makes sense that this would happen. If there's an antenna on top of a building, the sightline runs diagonally from the building down to the other buildings, it is entirely possible that it will only hit one side of the street. Or, even more extreme, it may cover the units on the south side of 150 Bay but not the First St. side.

So if there is a space in PAD that isn't covered, there will be an antenna on that building or one very close by. Depending on the other buildings in the area, they do strategize the best location based on sightlines etc.


I'm not sure if there would be a gap in coverage. There are apparently cell phone antennas on the roof of 150 Bay Street.

Anyone know if the new Hard Grove has a website or menu online? Looking to see if they have vegetarian options. The only menu I can find online lists their address as on Grove St. so I assume it's completely outdated.

Was that their plan all along.

Out of spite, demolish of an historic building on Newark Ave, transfer their liquor license three times (3) ... Newark Ave, Montgomery St and finally the Porto... well they are lawyers so they don't have to pay anyone but them selves... so to speak.

Well good luck to them. Not that they would be so nice to anyone else.


Not for nothing, but they didn't demo the building. The building next door burnt down (which is a whole other conspiracy that I won't get into here), the demolition of which undermined the structure that Hard Grove was going in to. I can't imagine a scenario where Hard Grove would rather be at their current (new) location than in the heart of the pedestrian plaza. They lost a TON of money because they were so close to opening on Newark that the spot on Grove was closed and they were therefore out of business for years over this.

I have no reason to defend them but your post clearly has some ill will and is factually incorrect.

It is astounding how selfish you are.

Look, terrible things happen, but if a road was blocked in NYC there would have been alternative roads. That is not the case in JC. So yes, I did bring up the city's plans to narrow the lanes for bikes because it will only bring more congestion to this city. Even the turnpike and parkway allow for movement of traffic when there is an incident. The truth as they say will bring freedom. Do not be afraid of the truth.


Well I guess we know in advance that the fat slob Yvonne will probably fight against the Grand St. redesign with her lies. I wonder if she's ordered the VVPA to officially oppose it yet.

Agreed. Such things should be better advertised. This one is simply on the radar of the public more than other events due to the fact that it's actually really good. Word of mouth should not be the only source of info.


Also agree on the lack of publicity. This is about the only one worth spectating, IMO. And IIRC, last year year they went down Jersey then East on Columbus (not Newark) or maybe it was East on Newark to Barrow then south to Columbus. Not through the pedestrian plaza...

Re: Jersey City taps Downtown woman to be city planner

I agree with all of this EXCEPT the wide streets. Wider streets are proven to be less safe to cross, subconsciously encourage faster driving, etc. Certainly all new streets need to have bike lanes (in fact, protected bike lanes) and in almost all cases parking on both sides. But that should be done in the narrowest way possible.

Its a good time for a change. I hope she addresses some of the concerns that have been emerging as the city seems to be growing faster than the existing planners have seemed to keep up with. There are things that can help the city grow, but also seem more cohesive and aesthetically pleasing to people on the streets.

1. More of an effort to eliminate the Bayonne Boxes which have been an eyesore on so many outskirt neighborhoods of transit hubs over the years.

2. Smarter transitioning of neighborhoods to reduce the likelihood of a 50 story building to stand next to a 2 story house. Im all for development, but there should be more of an easing in to a high rise section of town from a low-rise house section as well.

3. Wider streets that provide parking and bike lanes on both sides in completely new sections of the city. It boggles my mind why developers are making super narrow streets and sidewalks when they have a blank slate to work with. there is plenty of room to still build tall buildings but allowing more space to move for cars and people will reduce traffic and look more pleasing than tight narrow streets.

Theres a ton of other things, but either way, I wish her the best for the future of the city.

Oh, whatever

I don't know what squeeg knows, but it sounds like it's the landlord who has chosen not to renew the lease. Prato has been doing a good business for quite some time now. Just last month, the owner of Prato was saying he liked being part of the neighborhood, and knowing their regular customers:
http://jerseycityeats.blogspot.com/20 ... et-vendor-prato.html#more

I see no indication that the neighborhood chased them out.


Perhaps that's not the case and if so, I'll stand corrected. The OP (squeeg) seems quite elated they're leaving and is lauding the HPNA, indicating they had something to do with this decision.

So they drove out a very popular bakery that closes in the early evenings that most of the neighborhood really enjoyed. Wonderful. I hope the NA is happy with the hair salon/real estate office/some sort of preschool they'll wind up getting in its place.

DMV has nothing to do with traffic court.

That said, not that I'm a regular at court but had my first experience there just this past spring and it was fast (maybe an hour of watching others plead their case), unexpectedly interesting, easily accessible by JSQ PATH, and the judge was top notch. I guess YMMV.

Depending on the judge you'd likely get mercy and the reduced $60 ticket. I wouldn't even bother asking for it to be entirely dismissed since you were at fault.
