I really think the types of people who are moving to DTJC would have favored the old Harbor Casino over the new one.

Really? You think the Paulus Hook crowd would prefer the old, rugged, hole-in-the-wall Harbor Casino over the new remodeled place? I'm not sure which Jersey City you live in, because that is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard.

Nah, depending on how it happened you can be going much slower and still be able to flip a car.

I don't know what he assumed. You're right, something certainly doesn't add up. It looks as though he was getting it ready to rent again. I'm only saying it was lived in because of the shampoo in the shower - maybe he was doing work here, and decided to take a shower in my shower or something. I don't know. What I do know is that someone spent at least a few days in my apartment (or at least a significant number of hours). I was never notified he would be in my apartment, and there are literally 100 things that are different from the way I left them. Things that would require 2 people to move have been moved across my patio.

Landlord rent dispute - come back and place has been lived in
#4
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Hi,
So I was away from my apartment for 2 1/2 months, and I just returned yesterday. While I was gone, I was having a dispute with my landlord about February's rent. I sent him a check for February, he says he never got it, I sent him a second check for February, and he claims he never got that one as well. He did receive my rent check for March and April though.

Once I got back yesterday, I was able to confirm that he has not deposited the first two checks I sent him. Not a problem, I will be more than happy to provide him another check. I have already sent him my rent for May. At worst, I was only 30 days behind with rent, since he received the checks for March and April, and I'm obviously not a deadbeat since I've never missed a month in more than a year and have continued to pay rent. Here is the problem:

My landlord didn't know exactly when I was returning. When I walked in my door, I could tell right away something was up. Things were rearranged, especially my outdoor furniture. The place was very clean, but things had definitely been gone through and moved around. Flowers had actually been planted outside. There was a new bottle of shampoo I don't use in my shower that I noticed this morning.

This HAS to be illegal. At most my rent was 30 days behind. What are the laws concerning this, and what kind of action should I take?

Haha. Wow. You sound like a really fun person. You also sound like you should be living somewhere besides Jersey City.

I would have to say that while I like Satis very much, it is not on the same level as Light Horse. I've been to Light Horse about 100 times, and had just about everything on the menu. Their food is consistently a good deal better than anything else in the area, and I've never come close to having a bad experience there. Calling Light Horse Tavern a "pub" is a fairly ridiculous exaggeration.

I've been to Satis 4 times now, and while the food is better than almost anything in the area, I wouldn't say it's better than Light Horse. It does come close though. Satis has a pretty nice interior, but if you're comparing it to Light Horse, it definitely isn't on the same level.

I am very glad Satis is here, and it will undoubtedly be taking some of my business from Light Horse. However, If I'm going to be taking someone to a serious business dinner, or even a date, Light Horse is going to be my first choice in the area.

I saw a sign on the front of Satis Bistro about their grand opening. It's supposedly happening on December 9th. You can make reservations on Open Table.

It looks fairly interesting, and it's nice to have a BYOB option in the area other than Presto's and their crappy wine glasses that taste like dish detergent.

Re: PRESERVATION OF POWERHOUSE TO BEGIN
#17
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Xerxes,
I have yet to talk to a person in the Paulus Hook area that isn't excited for the Powerhouse to be restored and turned into a mixed-use facility with stores, entertainment, and restaurants. Obviously it is going to take a number of years, but it will happen. Your claim that once it is strengthened and restored it's going to fall down is laughable, and frankly moronic.

I'm sorry you can't grasp the meaning of the word "historic" and the importance of buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. You're right, the Powerhouse was a very insignificant building. The Hudson and Manhattan railroads that were powered by it really had no impact on this area. I hear they were only used for rich people to go on "Murder Mystery" train rides once a week. I frequently work with architects on projects, and I've talked to a few of them about the Powerhouse. They agree that it is a very beautiful building architecturally, which is rare for a powerhouse, and is just one more reason for it to be restored.

Make no mistake about it, if it does fall or get knocked down, there is absolutely no chance it's going to be replaced by a park, and I guarantee the building that replaces it is not going to be anywhere near as nice as its current form.

It is NOT historic but purely functional in it's time with no function today. It was built to keep rain off huge generators to power the electric railroad under the Hudson.
It is not historic, merely OLD, the only relic of the devastated wasteland the railroads left when they went bell up. Clearing out detritus allowed for waterfront housing.

If you don't consider it historic, then you should go check a dictionary for the definition. It was a very important building in the past, which coincidentally, is the definition of historic. I guess its inclusion on the National Register of Historical Places is a typo, so you should contact them and let them know.

Again, if you're looking for buildings in Jersey City to be knocked down to build parks, you need to reevaluate your priorities and consider moving elsewhere.

100% untrue. NYC taxis must accept credit/debit cards for all fares. It doesn't matter if its flat fare, out of state or anything else. If they say they can't accept it, threaten to take their medallion number and call 311 - they will magically be able to accept credit cards. Cabbies like to say they can't since they get more money from the cash, but it's untrue.

Really? It's a fairly historic building, which I personally find very interesting architecturally. The restoration and development of it will be great for the area and Jersey City in general. Your comment is akin to if you moved out to Yellowstone and demanded they top kill Old Faithful and build the American Burj Dubai on top of it... If you want the Powerhouse turned into a park, you're living in the wrong place.

WOW woudn't a couple high rise housing projects be exciting and novel for the now desolate Jersey City Waterfront.


At least the Baltimore renovation made some SENSE.
The Jersey City job is just a masturbatory exercise to move money to developers aided and abetted by a couple of misplaced dilettantes.


So if the Powerhouse isn't restored and used as a shopping/performance center, what should it be used for? Do you want it knocked down or something? I bet half the people on this forum want the government to spend millions of dollars restoring it, and then build a bunch of high-end apartments and studios in it to rent to struggling artists for $200 a month... It's absurd to me to see so many people on this forum who are against any sort of project that will bring economic benefits to the area. Not to mention it brings new things for the people living around it to experience. These kinds of projects should be encouraged, not fought against.

As for the "misplaced dilettantes" - I'm sure you don't know 1/1000th of the steps and processes that are required to make a project such as this happen. You're calling these developer amateurs, which is very far from the truth. All of these people complaining about how slow it's going are just ignorant. I wish it could move faster as well, but there are many complicated problems that are very challenging and time consuming to solve. It doesn't happen overnight, but when it does, it's going to be a great thing for Jersey City.

Re: Friends of Liberty State Park oppose Formula One Grand Prix in Jersey City

Dammit Healy,
This would have been such a great opportunity for Jersey City in so many ways. The amount of roadway they would need to construct is insignificant in proportion to the rest of the park - not to mention how high quality of a roadway it is. F1 is big money - actually many, many orders of magnitude bigger than APW. They are the ones looking to do this, and they would have put a ridiculous amount of money into making sure it improved the park every year.

Im sick of these people who hate progress around here. The economic benefits Jersey City could have realize from this is absolutely immense. Idiots

I have ordered take-out from here 3-4 times. I live about 1/2 mile away, and my orders have only taken about 30 minutes to arrive. The burgers are very good and probably the best made sliders I've seen. I just had the burritos today and they were good as well, but I'll stick to the burgers since that's what I prefer anyway.
