So is it safe to assume you've changed your mind and now want the monument to stay? Interesting to say the least. I approve of gaining a deeper understanding of people's feelings towards the monument, although I suspect the real reason is because you don't like Fulop and his handling of the situation made it easy for you to jump to the other side.

Personally - I like it where it is. Presumably, it'll be good where it's going also. The way it was handled was stupid, and I dislike even more the fact that some developer with money declares that he doesn't like it and it has to move (does he own the space? thought it was public), but it seems like the end result is a pretty decent compromise. Too bad it had to happen so..shadily.

What's with the soft -peddling of this issue here ?
Whether one likes or dislikes Fulop is Irrelevant !!!

Personally - I find it is somewhat difficult to *Like* someone who is insulting to the taxpaying public & widely dismissive of the Real needs of All JC Citizens, Over-Reaching in his *Governing bwo Twitter announcements & E.O.s,, all the while promoting divisiveness with his assignments of the 'Hater' label to any/all [most of who have solid rationale 4 said opposition] who disagree with his opinion/POV.

What IS Relevant however is Exactly what U have stated : "the fact that some developer with money declares that he doesn't like it and it has to move"

There has yet to be an End Result, as there are Legal proceedings pending before the court to be adjudicated, Definitions of Empowered parties to any agreement to be resolved. and most importantly a Huge matter of Engineering studies /Cost Analysis plus the ability to fund such an undertaking,, aka. WHOIS gonna pay for all of this ??

This Fulop Administration has denied the most basic of Needs in our City's Communities in favor of Feel-Good projects, Staffing expenditures, and keeping Lawyers flush with No-Bid Contracts to Defend HIS Poor Policy Decisions.
This trajectory is Simply NOT Sustainable!

Ur stmt. : "Too Bad... " referring to Shady Backroom Self-Dealings, that you think are a Done Deal, will be prove to be fatefully problematic [and precedent setting]

I know that all installations are different and therefore pricing can differ a lot, but I'm wondering if anyone can provide a ballpark quote for a 3 bedroom / ~1300 sq ft ductless AC install? It is a single-floor condo unit.

A range would be fine too (eg $10k-15K) - just want to get an idea if the price we were quoted is fair.

Thanks in advance.

Depends upon the configuration that You want & number of outdoor condensing units it will require.

1300sqft. is not alot, but I would think that you would want indoor delivery to each bedroom & a larger common space under individual control zones.

Also the distance limitations on the lines might make for a tricky & more expensive install [especially in a condo].

I have these systems installed in my 3 floor home for the last 10yrs. & all I can advise is to utilize a Major quality Brand [so that you can obtain replacement computer boards when PSE&G loses a Phase in your area that burns them up] & contract with a qualified installer who can give you optimal unit design advice + do optimal install.

But Yvonne - I'm curious as to your sudden change of position. You were one of the strongest supporters of moving the statue at the beginning of this thread, giving all sorts of reasons. Why the sudden change? Is it just because you found yourself on the same side as the mayor you despise? Seems a bit odd.

Our Ever-So-Politically-Correct Mayor Authored this ShitStorm via Twitter & the Chickens have Now come Home to Roost.
The Optics are now BAD 4 HIM because he got Checked+Challenged by a tight knit Polish Speaking Community who Pushed Back & said NO!

I am most interested in seeing whether Maciej remains Polish Consul General when Polish President arrives for tomorrow's Wreath-Laying Ceremony, as it is my understanding from Polish people here & abroad that these political Machinations go against the grain of Polish President's Core Beliefs.

I have several ductless units & they do work much better at the ground level in a shaded area.
Any true professional will advise against putting them on roof or in direct Sun, as they will run constantly & cost you dearly on electric consumption.

Tip of Morris Canal Park makes too much sense for it to happen.

If Fulop played it right, approached the community in the right way, explained the rationale, I bet the move to that location would have been accepted. Not to the fuking median and not because I told you so, and certainly not because Poles are anti-semites or whatever slur he used.

He handled it in the worst possible way.

His conduct does not give me any confidence in Senator Fulop or whatever political office he will be aspiring to.

And...my grandmother was the first child of her Polish born parents to be born on American soil. You can disagree with my opinion, but do not mistaken it for an anti Polish sentiment.


To be fair, the debate over aesthetics is subjective and everyone will feel what they feel.

What is not up for debate is Fulops handling of the situation. No community input or discussion, and outright bigotry on Twitter in the style of Trump. It's disgusting and he is disgusting.

If taxes reach confiscatory levels, users will just buy via the black market. This has already happened with cigarettes.

It's too late for the pension plans. The time to fix it was 20+ years ago. Sweeney, to his credit, has been trying to get the state to fix the issue clear back in 2005. I think he even hinted at moving new state employees to a 401k type defined contribution plan. The unions took him to the woodshed over that proposal.

Amateur Hour City Hall Operations coupled with the fact that Fulop has seriously pissed off too many to list here, including some powerful players in the political arena leaving his political capital in question is a real deal-breaker IMHO.

Politicians Want to Start a Bank. What Could Go Wrong?

New Jersey looks to follow North Dakota’s example, but without the same low-corruption culture.

Some Democrats in Trenton think they’ve found an answer to New Jersey’s problems: a new government-owned bank.

Gov. Phil Murphy, formerly of Goldman Sachs , campaigned last year on the idea of creating a bank owned by the state and its municipalities. “A public bank will allow New Jersey to invest in New Jersey,” Mr. Murphy said. He added that it would “provide capital to communities that, for too long, have been ignored by the financial system, whether they be women-owned businesses, businesses owned by people of color, or small businesses with big ideas.”

At the beginning of this year’s legislative session, two Democratic state senators introduced the State Bank of New Jersey Act to turn Mr. Murphy’s campaign proposals into reality. The new bank would be run by an appointed board, plus the state treasurer. It would be instructed to make its services available to all public entities, and it could enter into real-estate projects using the power of eminent domain. The bank would also be empowered to extend student loans and small-business loans.

For years progressive groups have advocated government-run banks, arguing that they would serve local users better than private banks do. A model often cited is the Bank of North Dakota, the only state-owned bank in the U.S., which was founded nearly a century ago as part of a populist farmers revolt. It has survived as an apparently functional part of the economic landscape in one of the nation’s most conservative states. Another oft-cited example is Germany’s Landesbanken, a group of state-owned regional banks known for midlevel commercial lending and for overseeing local savings banks (Sparkassen) run by municipalities.

As private banks see it, state-owned banks succeed, if they do, because of unfair advantages. They’re exempt from taxes, which may or may not be partly offset by an expectation that they return money to state or municipal treasuries. Public banks can also raise money at the lower interest rates charged to government borrowers, since they’re seen as unlikely to default (and likely to be bailed out if they do).

But you don’t hear as much favorable buzz about the German Landesbanken as you used to, given their recent performance. The Economist reported in 2015 that “this hybrid public-private model, which relied on public largesse in days past, has fared disastrously since the financial crisis.” The promise that politically controlled banks would choose investments on a sound business basis has proved false. “State politicians sit on the supervisory boards, enjoying playing the role of banker, supporting favored projects and soft loans to companies that employ lots of voters,” the magazine noted.

Alert readers might have noticed what Germany and North Dakota have in common: relatively clean, honest political cultures. Germany regularly ranks among the 10 or 20 least corrupt countries in the world (and ahead of the U.S.). Among American states, the measures vary. North Dakota has had more corruption convictions than one might expect, but it still scores well on most outcome-based measures. New Jersey, on the other hand, fares quite poorly.

A 2014 study by the Safra Ethics Center at Harvard ranked state corruption by surveying political reporters covering capital politics. North Dakota was in a small group of states where illegal corruption was perceived as “not at all common.” When it came to “legal” corruption—i.e., the kind that isn’t against the law but is still aromatic—the study found it was only “slightly common” in North Dakota.

On both metrics New Jersey was among the seven states perceived as most corrupt. The Soprano State has provided America with some of its gaudiest and most colorful political double-dealers, with mayors in Atlantic City, Camden, Irvington, Jersey City, Newark, Orange and Trenton all having been convicted over the past generation.

A State Bank of New Jersey would be unlikely to content itself with the predictable and repetitive lending that goes on in an agriculture-and-extraction economy like North Dakota’s. It would inevitably turn into a Favor Bank for politicos hoping to lure subsidized jobs from the more vibrant cities of New York and Philadelphia. Once the initial buzz of idealism passed, it would become a tempting honey pot for the corrupt politicians for which New Jersey is famous.

In that sense, a State Bank of New Jersey really would be sure to create jobs—for prosecutors.

There is some interesting data in the list of assessments:

The larger Crystal Point units (1,590 sf) are assessed at $1,368 per sf. Those units are all assessed the same - regardless of floor.

The larger 77 Hudson units (but not the even larger PH units) are assessed above $1,100 per sf. Those are in the 1,550 sf range. The large PHs - 2,000+ sf are assessed north of $1,500 per sf at $3,100,000+ (!!)

A few of the large 77 Hudson units were assessed at several hundred thousand dollars below prices they had recently sold for (sales that had taken place in 2016 or 2017). One was assessed $478,000 less than what it sold for in early 2016.

In general, the listed assessment seems to be higher (per sf) the larger your unit is - which is counter to what typically happens in the market.

Owners at Crystal Point and 77 Hudson are both on long-term abatements and only pay a few thousand dollars a year for land taxes, so none of this really matters for them any time soon - but if you were looking to make a case against the assessment process, I'd wonder how these conclusions were reached.

INDEED a Good Catch for making a case against the city's Reval Vendor : Appraisal Systems Inc. work-product & the entire premise of market rate appraisal via snapshot in time methods.

The most glaring outrageous thing that I noticed is their reduction of value for a DT Rowhouse that sold for 1.8Million in 2016 to 1.5Million, citing significant Sq. ft. reduction from the connecting homes with identical footprint that are seated under a common cornice !!
