Re: Alternatives for getting to JFK airport from Jersey City Thanks in advance.
#1

I avoid flying out of JFK like the plague too... however I will accept flying back to JFK sometimes if $$-wise better. The A-train connection has been the best in my experience, I have done ubering/lyftying when I hit brooklyn but it has not been a substantial improvement. EWR by all means is so much more convenient.

Re: Fair current value for a home with low taxes.

It is a not easy task. I assume you are talking about an old condo downtown right? Not something built recently - in which case the taxes would more closely reflect the current value? There have been debate about this previously and, as I recall (and Brewster may pitch in), it was agreed that there would be some impact but it would not be big, more in range of 10-15% debasing for the value. This is still a desirable area to live in.

JHurst, could you qualify your endorsement for Symes vs Solomon, and if you would put these on top of an instant runoff ticket? I can see you had good things to say about both. Feel free to PM if (like me) you are concerned of having some of your words used for rumors and innuendos.

People who believe Fulop endorsed Symes (or anyone for that matter) should have a walk in the Hamilton Park area with its conjoined Grillo and Fulop signs #GetReal

As for Candice, good for her. I need to watch the debate...

Re: Dixon Leasing Cheating JC out of Taxes with the help of Rebecca Sysmes

That's why it feels like it will be Grillo 40%; Symes, Hunut, Solomon 20% each. It is no surprise that the Fulop signs are now accompanied with Grillo's quite often. As an independent who will vote for Fulop (the balance vs Healy is positive) but who want to get him in check, not reelect the corrupted old guard, not elect a developer's hand and still want to vote for a person who will represent us all and pursue balanced growth opportunities what are my choices really? Solomon seems the most independent and listening (btw for a "rich" guy he could get new shirts) but could be too progressive on my taxes, Hunut seems a little young. I am edging Solomon but what if I am wrong?

Re: Matsikoudis want to expand rent control?

There is a bit of difference between 25% or 50% increase used as an argument and the low single digit proposed rate for regulated increase. I am one of the landlords talked about by neverleft. Small building, very good deal to my tenants, we are close to friends at this point. Yet if my taxes shoot way up, I will have to increase them and it may be 5% for a number of years. I also signed on BM signature paperwork for election. In insight, I wish I could have used it as toilet paper.

Try reliable tree service. They do all sorts of things. I used them to cut and remove a pole in my backyard and they were quite efficient, cleaned and removed everything for a reasonable price.

I would then suggest to the Admin to change the thread title to the above. I have nothing against Rebecca Sysmes, though I would prefer voting for someone not associated with the RE industry or the old guard. James Solomon is my favorite at this point as fresh eye, active listener, with planning experience though I will give her another look based on this information.

I would argue that the taste and calories per dollar you get there is one of the best deal though.. Clemence unique choc-o-pain aux amandes is definitely something to consider prior (or post) the Newport half for example. I am glad they found a better location in the Heights to bake and supply more of Hudson County!

Re: Can JC kick it's parking addiction?
#16
Home away from home
Home away from home


I suspect the reason for the free for all in the cast iron neighborhood is that well, the neighborhood was not one to start from. Now that key buildings and streets are being completed/resurfaced, it is a matter of time before street parking rules get established there. I suspect the city is waiting for a critical mass. It won't be pretty when all tenants there suddenly find out new restrictions. I wonder if the developers have negotiated a timeline to have it roll in progressively.

It is amazing the level of developments...

Re: Can I withdraw after seller accepts my offer
#18

I strongly suggest you get an attorney indeed, if you haven't got one. You have 3 working days to change your mind post contract. Your attorney will usually send a letter to the seller attorney stipulating that the sale is contingent upon the property passing the inspection and the buyer finding a mortgage based on similarly appraised value. This usually offers you some levy. If the property is in good shape, is within your estimated appraised value, then there is no reason to hold and the seller could make your life difficult. If there are general issues with the property or the bank appraisal significantly deviates from the contract value, then your attorney should be able to pull you off that deal.

FYI. Parking for the fireworks by the zeppelin parking lot - from grand street take a turn on jersey avenue towards the foot bridge and turn left at the end. No idea about capacity though so you may come early.

Re: How Jared Kushner and others gerrymander to sell visas to foreigners — at a steep discount
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


Indeed, below is one of them by the same author. I guess the difference is related to what we are learning here about how they do it (gerrymandering, I had no idea about that) and because it was related to a person with a higher position to exert influence. The tactics are the same, the people are distributed across the political spectrum, whatever works within a state/city administration.

Let's use this opportunity to reform the law for EB5 and H1B. One can argue out of factual criteria for both, e.g. having to demonstrate impact on ALL districts for the former if you (are allowed to) apply this methodology, and increasing the annual wage for the latter.

Re: Zillow 07307 market report
#26

Home away from home


If I am not misguided, the interest for developers of doing rentals is for tax reason. Postponing the sale for several years allows to get a smaller property tax and, when selling, moving the profits to long term capital gains - at lower rate. As times goes, developers will eventually put their units on the market which should temper the current rise - which is also fueled by the stock market. The situation might be quite different a few years down the road...

Re: Dixon Leasing Cheating JC out of Taxes with the help of Rebecca Sysmes
#29

You mean that the tax would skyrocket AFTER the abatement expires right? If this is the case then Dixon banked on the delayed reval to keep taxes low for a while but it should not prevent their properties from being reassessed and them paying a higher rate right post-reval. They could refuse to have their properties visited and argue out of partial renovation paperwork (if they did so) but I am sure it would backfire considering they have rented many of them and people know what's inside. The goal for Dixon as part of the HCA maybe to cool people down post-reval and get as much info on people's properties to do the right appeals if they can. At this point my position on them has turned to neutral.

Re: Anyone know of a peditrician who is anti-vaccine or vaccine neutral in JC?
#30
Home away from home

EasyGibson touch on a point that seems so prevalent in our current time: the disappearance of family/community knowledge. Grandparents in many way used to be the reference to us, whether on diseases or war. They used to be the reference to decisions we made because they had lived through the horror leading to them. It feels like the OP doesn't have these people as reference. I would suggest in their absence to trust the experts and people who know someone who lived the pre-vaccine era. THIS is what you can control - wasn't it all about this, the notion you can control the outcome, while you will create another?

As for the difference in toxicity related to form, dose and distribution, I can reach to one of my pharmacokinetic expert friend if that can help. He I strongly suggest has vaccinated his kids. Vaccines are safer than not.
