I am with comcast and last Friday I noticed a slowdown as well on my company laptop - was not doing too much multitasking on my personal laptop at the time. Maybe everybody is looking at disinfectant youtube videos?

Yup, and when people factor the 47% increase in their school taxes they may go see the light elsewhere - I believe that between this and the impact of covid on property value, we will hit the 2+% tax rate that people have been using as a "fairness" benchmark. I expect to appeal next year...

Would love too.., though I am afraid it will take a little longer at least until we get a vaccine. I am optimist though, looking at the virus make-up and evolution, as well as the current approaches that whatever is found will provide at least partial immunity for the time being, once rolled out.

I am not optimist for Brewster winning the debate on the origin of this virus though. It is a cognitive reality that many people will prefer the predictibility of the herd to uncertainty, in addition to getting synaptic reinforcement for their beliefs each time the conspiracy is recalled. After a friend of mine repeatedly asked me to watch the series Homeland to confirm her beliefs, I decided not to debate science or even basic math with her and non scientists. You are right though Brewster, one can go back for ex to April of last year to find publications warning of what was yet to come based on coronavirus make up in species.

Going back to the title and the impact of this crisis on our local market I tend to agree with Sutherland. It goes back to predictability again, and once people start seing the impact of the fiscal crisis on their taxes, the disappearance of local businesses, and the lingering health risks, they may decide that they can practice safer distancing in the suburbs. We shall see whether we are wrong on that.

This is a reason to run solo as much as possible..., and preferably in the street. I run early in the morning and actually have a route where I don't run into anybody - yes there are options.

A true story of an immigrant bringing his life and dedication to We The People, I felt an immense sadness upon learning of his passing.

As per Solomon FB:
"In loving memory, place a candle in your window this Friday at 7:30 PM"

As per Michael Yun FB page, please be aware of scammers:
" During this difficult time The Yun Family has expressed their concerns that scammers are claiming to be relatives of Councilman Michael Yun. Creating fraudulent “Go Fund Me” pages and creating clone/ghost accounts under his daughter’s name Jaclyn Yun.

It is disrespectful, disgusting and against the law. Ghosting a form of identity theft attempting to collect funds through “GoFundMe” PLEASE do not get solicited by these people.

Do not accept their friend’s requests! If you have been friend requested report these activities.

Go to the city tax link below and enter your name or address. You should see the past, current and future payments. You can see whether your mortgage lender has paid the bill for august. They should have set an automated ACH payment out of your escrow account at closing to do that. And they should be receiving the tax bill. If not, contact your mortgage lender to correct this. Hope it helps.

Here are the street closed. The biggies other than Washington are montgomery and jersey avenue. Anyone should plan to stay roughly west of jersey avenue before they reopen for traffic around 10:30-11. Thankfully the rain will have stopped before the race starts.

Thanks for sharing regarding expected traffic..., cars and runners! This is a fantastic course though it can be muggy some years. The entrance in LSP and time spent there is just glorious. Highly recommend, I am really sad I had to bail this year due to a foot injury.

Not sure what's their process but may be worth testing... Years ago I got the chance to try in Toronto an ice cream made by pouring fresh cream into a metal bowl filled with liquid nitrogen, it was super yummy. I have been thinking of fruit variations ever since - the process is actually very simple.

Fully concur. There is nothing wrong with calling the city to check whether someone's action was legal. It is not snitching, just awareness on both sides. A friend of mine has been very effective using this approach. #TruthAnd(hopefully) (re)conciliation.

It is possible Brewster. If people are unaware of the rules then they can do uneducated things like that. I would like to know if these workers/washing company are new and if McCali communicated the information on the falcons to them too. There seems to have been a breach of communication somewhere... I hope they find the other falcon youngster, hopefully he could glide as well and took refuge somewhere where his/her parent can reach him/her. Sad story!

Re: End of AirBnB in Jersey City?

The proposed regulation differentiate between smaller owner-occupied buildings and larger non-owner unoccupied ones. I wonder what criteria they used to restrict to 3-family or below. Certainly it seems to be unfair to owner occupied 4 family buildings that already face state inspection schedules and regulations. One the topic of the licensing fee, are the proposed $500 and $300 renewal fees going to replace the ~6% tax that prevailed before? Imho it would be much simpler to have a fixed day city fee added to the rent. I have seen this working in Italy and I thought it was an appropriate way to remind folks that there are folks taking care of the city - and they should behave appropriately.

Re: ‘Massive’ $120M budget shortfall is subject of special Jersey City BOE meeting
#22
Home away from home
Home away from home


I get it for the incremental levy for schools with the caveat that if property values drop, e.g. in a recession, we may end up in the 2-3% NJ range sooner than later with a lot of people appealing their assessment/taxes and the city/school/county counteracting accordingly every year.
As for this year, the city is proposing a 2% property tax hike to balance its budget while the BOE is proposing a 10% tax for the school portion. If the county proceeds in between, am I misguided in projecting that the average homeowner should expect a 3-4% hike?

Re: Sweeney proposes slapping payroll tax on Jersey City businesses to fund schools
#24
Home away from home
Home away from home


Payroll tax upheld. The judge also upheld the non-resident clause though he could only link it to general use of city resources, not to the schools - and that tax is specifically going to the schools, not to the city general budget. I read part of the ruling and this is the only debatable argument I could find, the rest seems on firm legal footing based on what the state has carved.

Re: Notice of violation & Order to correct - JCFD
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


Ordinance 14.117 below.

- Section (5) (a) explicitly excludes the JCFD from enforcing Uniform Fire Code on one and 2-units owner occupied buildings.
- Section 3-88-2 and 3-88-4 details the Uniform Fire Code registration and fees. It is not clear whether these fees applies to all buildings. The beginning of 3-88-2 seems to have a disclaimer for buildings pursuant to the Uniform Fire Code - which could exclude one and 2-units owner occupied buildings.

At this point, it is my understanding that section (5)(a) supersedes section 3-88-2 and -4 and therefore that the letter received by legal_alien does not applies to his/her building.
Or mine for that matter.

Does ordinance 14.117 call for city inspection of buildings with 3 units? With 2 units? of single family homes? Is there a mandate to inspect every x number of years? And, most importantly, is the inspection mandatory or only when there is probable cause? This is honestly the first time I hear about this and I have been in HP more than 10 years.

I have seen quite a few people taking the 7:25 over the years, including a friend of mine I have not heard talk negatively about it - at least that bus. It seems rather nice to get the first seats. I envy it in some ways, the "reverse" commute conditions have changed quite a bit since the buildup in Noho West.
