Trees - Free Saplings
#1
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have five types of sapling to give away for fall planting to someone with a green, or greenish, thumb:

- 2 White flowering dogwoods
- 1 Crape myrtle
- 2 Washington hawthorns
- 1 Sargent crabapple
- 1 American redbud

They are all in pots, which come with the trees. Pick them up if you would like them. PM me if interested.

Thanks for getting back to me. This is one of those newer (early 80s) row houses off Hamilton Park on 9th. The brick is not structural and there's no cornice or wood window frames. We just have soot stains (like tears from the window frame corners) and some spalling we'd like to have cleaned off. If doing it means I need to re-point all the brick then I wouldn't do it - there must be a gentler option.

Free inflatable kayak - Sevylor Fiji

I have a Sevylor Fiji inflatable that I haven't been able to sell. Will give away to a good local home. It's in fair to good condition (the inflatable center seat is missing). I have a bonus skeg attachment that goes with it (like a surfboard fin). Makes it track a lot better in the water. Comes with a paddle and a carrying bag.

PM me if interested and I will let you pick it up.

Looking to clean up the front of our brick row house in downtown JC. Anyone have a brick cleaning or power washing contractor you can recommend?

NFI. Anyone here ever actually been to Harsimus Cemetery? This is a historic burial ground, dating back to the 18th century, which has/had no money. It was created with some connection to Alexander Hamilton, and has a wall used as a picket line by Redcoats in the War of Independence. Despite that, I don't think it gets any city or state support and what the families paid to have loved ones buried there is probably long gone, not invested and certainly not being used to maintain or renovate the place. Probably dried up, stolen or siphoned off.

I think they get a little carried away with the Rocky Horror Picture shows and stuff, but what this group does to raise money is the difference between what you see now and a totally abandoned graveyard.

I think it's easy for one person with relatives buried there to say this is disrespectful, but I don't see them doing anything to maintain the place.

The woman who runs it (who has more than one family member buried there and is not a recently-moved-to-DTJC person) is the only one between a relatively clean, accessible site, and a boarded-up, overgrown blight on Newark Ave.

They do a lot more than the events that were featured on ABC news (to get everyone exited and outraged). Most are very quiet (like the mushroom workshop I went to 2 years ago). I encourage everyone here to walk over there and take a look before typing out a knee-jerk reaction piece.

One other potential source of flooding: when the sewers are full & your check valve is up, there's nowhere for the storm water from your roof to exit your building.

Totally agree. Other sources when the check valve is closed include waste water from inside the building (especially if there are multiple units in it), and sump pump discharge. When the city sewer is full and pressurized, there is nowhere for this water to go except backward, where it looks for the path of least resistance - which could be a floor drain, toilet, tub or any other opening in the line between you and the sewer. Tell your upstairs neighbors not to flush when it's raining ;)

Open houses are a pain but they drive foot traffic into the unit, which is much more effective then photos on a website. I would do a few of them, and put up flyers all over the neighborhood on the day before and morning of the open house. Make sure it's a warm, sunny day :)

Sites like FSBO.com can get you advice, materials and MLS listings.

Make sure you have a real estate attorney already lined up to draw up contracts, review offers, etc.

Re: Homeowners Insurance

We went with Petrocci Agency on Kennedy Blvd - (201) 434-4760. 1/2 of our house is in the flood zone, so effectively the whole thing is. They set us up with both homeowners and flood insurance. Satisfied with the agent. Not happy to pay flood insurance premiums because I think the whole thing is basically a scam, but we have to have it to get a mortgage, so we do. I have a poor memory, but I think policy is with Travelers.

Re: Jersey City to JFK and LGA

This would be a bit more challenging with an infant, but feasible. I did it this past Sunday:

1. PATH from Newport to 33rd
2. Walk 1 block to 33rd & 7th
3. NYC Airporter bus from that corner to JFK

It was not fast. From Newport to JFK it was about 2 hours (partly due to a lane closure at the Qns Midtown Tunnel that backed up 2nd Ave.)

But it was inexpensive - under $20.

Re: Trees for the future....

There are plenty of trees that are suitable for planting in urban sidewalk locations. I would hate to live in a city with nothing but container plants. You need to mark out utilities (gas, water, sewer, electric) before you choose a location and think about root spread and depth, but there is no reason not to plant trees with a little common sense and planning.

They don't have to be towering oaks, sycamores or sugar maples. Trees that will do better around overhead lines (and probably sewers and sidewalks as well) include hornbeams, cherries, smaller maples, crabapples, dogwoods, flowering plums, honey locust, littleleaf lindens, and the list goes on. Plenty of choices to suit a given location.

Trees - bring em on!

Friend of mine once got a ticket for driving while eating a bowl of fruit loops - milk, spoon and all. Steering with his knees.

I support that ticket - it was really dumb in a classic dumb ass kind of way. But we don't need a new set of laws.

I don't know if you can call the stop at York/Jersey "new." My memory is hazy but I think it's been there for at least a year now.

I've been guilty of missing new stop signs like this, until the road gets marked. Even then - it's easy to appreciate that new stop signs just don't register with drivers that frequently drive a route.

Spending a little money on beacons or blinking leds on the new stop signs would be worth it.

Re: Man swept up by currents on makeshift dock at New Jersey marina

I know that marina and I can't for the life of me think of where there would be a sheet of plywood, at water level, accessible to the public. The pier itself is open, although there is a guard shack, but the docks are gated and locked. What could he have been doing there in the middle of the night, unless he was sleeping on a boat (and I don't think Newport allows live-aboards).

It looks like a great park, but it's too bad they didn't or couldn't include a track. There should have been room since they included a football field. It would be nice to have a decent 400m track here, especially with the one in Lincoln Park under construction. Guess I'll keep going to Weehawken.

Re: help - jcmua bills me $7k for excavation

In a related development, I just got a letter from Suez/United Water which basically looked like a hard sell for insurance to cover repairs to the water line to my house. They're looking for about $9/month (forever I guess) to insure me against any necessary repairs. They used scare tactics in the letter (like telling me it could cost thousands to repair the water line if it ever breaks) and it left a really bad taste in my mouth.

Not sure if this is a legit and helpful new development, or just a private utility company looking for new revenue streams. Now I'm worried they're going to send out the goons to break the line "accidentally on purpose like."

Anyone else get a similar letter?
