They replaced a screen with flimsy glass that quickly cracked. When I went back to complain they said the would fix it but would need to charge me full price. Conveniently, their prices had just jumped up about 40 bucks too. Went to Apple (which I should have done in the first place) & they said who ever replaced the glass did not include all of the pieces. I think they said the couplers were gone. Anyway, Apple could not fix it due to the missing pieces and replaced my phone for a better price then what these guys were charging.


With a handle of photo2775 and the fact that it's your first post makes me think you're a competitor.

I've been doing IT support work for a long time and I outsource some hardware repairs. Tried a bunch of places but YuFixit always had the job right. Everything from glass or battery replacements to major jobs with 100 screws on an ultra-slim laptop keyboard replacement.


I had bad experiences with YuFixIt as well. Screws and plates from my phone were missing after replacing a screen there (according to the next place I took my phone too) and they completely messed up one of my laptop. I would not recommend.


So where WOULD you recommend? I just need a new droid battery (internal).

anyone have any experience with the nondescript "wireless" place next to Helen's pizza? I see the YuFixIt recommendations in this thread and may likely go there, but just trying to know my options.

Channel 1/96 is biased against families that don't have cable. Move everything online along with live streaming.


The mayor's action of removing caucus/council meetings is bias against citizens who pay for cable and want to see these programs. Who are you to judge what service someone should have?


The point is, cable costs money and providing a service only on cable may be a burden for those who cannot afford or choose not to subscribe. Online is free if you go to the library.

Your paying for cable, expecting a channel that you aren't getting, can be easily resolved. If you don't get the channel you want, stop paying for cable. Cable packages change ALL THE TIME.

Don't confuse what someone has the "right" to do and what you think is right. I'm sure once upon a time someone said that a government had no right to ban horse drawn carriages from the street, too, but society progressed to cars. Now, society has progressed to the internet.

If you actually believe that he has no right to change your programming, then you have the right to take legal action. Simple as that.

The Oculus is a death trap waiting to happen. If there is ever a situation that causes a panic there, it will be terrible. The stairs leading to the Path trains are terribly designed, the flooring and stairs are hard marble, and there are far too few open exits. The side exits are short escalator, stairs, and another set of escalators with lines to get on the escalators any time around rush hour. Commuters are always walking into one another's way. I compute there each workday and everyday I look to see if they have opened more exits (they have not). It was designed for an open concept and for shopping, but it a terrible commuting hub.


I have no doubt that in your opinion and from your perspective this is true. But I see it the exact opposite. Multiple shorter runs give people options when exiting, especially if there is an inoperable point of egress. I find the entire space to function beautifully in large crowds when people can navigate the large, unencumbered space and wide stairs. So, to each his own.

While everyone who works there is very pleasant, I was underwhelmed by the service. I think they do unnecessary stuff just to bill insurance, as it relates to the PT. With the acupuncturist, I was also underwhelmed but didn't get the "unnecessary billing" vibe so much.

Then again, I was also quite unhappy at TCM on Grove, so maybe I'm just overly critical on this matter.

While I have no ill-will against the Barge Inn, the one and only time I went there the place smelled so strongly of must and mildew that my sense of smell overpowered my tastebuds. Everything basically tasted like a basement. I hope they have resolved this issue.

I'm thinking more of site design than building design, which incurs little additional cost for vast improvement. From an urban design perspective, they generally qualify for the "what not to do" images in a college textbook. It's all permitted, however, because when Newport land was a rail yard and downtown was a ghetto, LeFrak bought the land and was willing to develop it only on their own terms. Those terms may have been acceptable at the time, but in hindsight they are problematic.

The window requirement is fire code. There are no ways to "get around" that requirement, as far as I know. As it relates to walking through one room to get to another, I do not believe there is a prohibition against that, but marketing would make it more or less un-viable in this day and age.

Their mentality is 1970s. While they are now starting to bring on some more tasteful architects, they should probably not be trusted with anything more aesthetic or inviting than...a big blank wall.

Bedrooms are required to have windows. Modera lofts could get themselves into hot water by calling those bedrooms. They are dens.

Is there somewhere local to get a vacuum repaired? And, does anyone know if the cost of doing so is reasonable (ie: less than buying a new one)? I have a damaged hose which doesn't appear to be removable from the canister and needs to be replaced - the motor is fine.

wow I had no idea, thanks for posting! Last year I got it in the mail, but I guess it was early enough in the year that they hadn't stopped the old process. Many if not most people just base their renewal on when they get that in the mail, so this could be a royal pain. Going forward they should collect email addresses (I cringe that I even suggest that...) for reminders.

Are there any rent controlled buildings in JC?

My understanding is that street has had problems for a long long time.

Has it been addressed at any of the neighborhood association meetings?


All rental buildings in JC with over 5 units and over 30 years old (I could have that age # wrong, maybe it's 40) are rent controlled.

Is it normal for a city to have as many water main breaks as JC? I've been here for 10 years and I feel like it is once or twice a year at this point.


For a city as old as JC, yes. Hoboken has a lot more, actually.


This isn't "normal." It is the result of neglect for downtown infrastructure. Too many tax abatements and not enough upkeep. Downtown was never equipped to handle the amount of residents it has now. Infrastructure was never required of the developers. If you look at other areas of Jersey City (Journal Square not often and Heights even less), you don't see this.


Even a broken clock is right twice a day...

You are right that this is not normal, and that it is the result of neglect. The rest is just opinion, and conjecture, and most of it wrong.

Abatements have nothing to do with a water main break. An abatement means that the Jersey City coffers are getting MORE money (the county is the one getting screwed out of money) so in theory the city has more money to dedicate to infrastructure upgrades and maintenance.

People love to grouse that JC is overpopulated, but the facts say otherwise: the population of Jersey City today is actually 15% lower than it was at its peak in the 1930s.

Over the past yeasr, the JSQ and Heights area have seen some water main breaks. The entirety of the city infrastructure is crumbling and needs some serious work, particularly the sewer system.


Not sure why you have the need to be insulting rather than just partake in the discussion, but I'm sure that there is a therapist out there who can help you with that.

The fact is that the Heights and Journal Square area have had FAR less water main breaks than downtown. I am well aware of PILOT programs and how they operate. My point is that part of any abatement should include some agreement that the developer be responsible for contributing to our infrastructure. Yes, the sewers are crumbling downtown; however, sewers were replaced in Lafayette section in recent years. While I'm sure that being from downtown and having to pay more taxes than anyone else and dealing with flooding and water main breaks is upsetting, it doesn't help to lash out at other people.

As for your population comment, there weren't 300,000 people living in Jersey City taking showers. We can all check the census on wikipaedia and find facts, but if you aren't astute enough to assumes variables (how many of those were children how many families had cars, etc), that data is apples and oranges.


1. Infrastructure in JSQ and the heights isn't even a fraction as old as downtown. So that's a terrible comparison.

2. Taking showers has nothing to do with the sewers being over capacity. If everyone took a shower at once and flushed at the same time, they'd be fine. The problem is with heavy rain. That's a fact that you're free to snub, but it is a fact.

3. As others have already competently responded, water pressure does not cause a main to break, and abatements are unrelated. Though in a way, abatements help because some of those projects do require an exchange for infrastructure improvements. So that argument is moot or even self-defeating.
