Re: What's going there? (Heights edition)

I'm looking forward to this going up also but I REALLY hope they put in a restaurant with a liquor license. It would do so much for the area to have a nice place to go for brunch or something, right there. I heard that "The Oasis" has been, unofficially for sale for years now but is way too expensive. How great though, if it got a makeover, as well.

Honda Fit. See a lot of them around here. Less than $17,000 out the door and they are very well reviewed. This is what we will get when our current car goes.

Please someone recommend a roofer (flat roof). What about Capital Roofing? There used to be good reviews for them apart from difficulty getting them to actually show up? Anyone else?

So did you really buy the property? And is Biki the one who turned you on to it? Ah, the perils of advice-seeking on JC list : )

It is really is cute inside too. The couple selling are neighbors/friends who just had a baby and want to live near the shore. It's on Sherman very close to the corner of Bower. There are trees and friendly neighbors in this very nice little pocket of Sherman.

This place in the heights looks cute and has outdoor space. That's a nice block and near Ogden and the park.

They'll probably more than double. What 2.1 percent of $600,000? I'm curious how accurate these appraisals will be. Are they going to come in at an exaggerated number or do they go off of Zillow sales comps plus condition of the house?

You're lumping the east side of the Heights with downtown. Wow. I must have missed something and I've been in the heights for over a decade. "Mod Cup" and "Dark Side of the Moo" and a nice farmer's market don't change the hood that much. The mayor lives on Ogden with a view of the city--that street has always been a gentrified island in this area. I doubt very much that my place is worth $700,000 or more.

User111, didn't you just write in another thread that your place just appraised at $288,000 (thank god for the light rail) so your taxes would be just over $6,000 which is definitely a grand less than you're paying now but not $3,000.

You've lost 8 pounds a week for the last 3 weeks. This to me, is VERY dramatic and trumps all the other symptoms. If you aren't exaggerating, any decent doctor should be alarmed by that alone. Are not eating? Are you not keeping it down? I'd focus on the weight loss aspect. To lose that much, you'd pretty much have to be not eating at all.

New restaurant in the Heights on Bower--Dark Side of the Moo

I just had a veggie burger here last night. It was really good. I guess they sell all kinds of fancy meats like kangaroo and alligator but my burger had black beans in it and it was spicy and really good. They used to have a food truck in Hoboken, I think. It's nice to see that little space on Bower come to life. It's right near Palisade and Riverview Park. Let's hope they do well!

Re: Is Jersey City Real Estate in a bubble?

An attached one-family with parking on Summit near Lincoln just sold for $550,00. It's renovated but only 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths and the backyard is more like a small courtyard not particularly pretty. That seems like a lot to me. But it's cool because I've been waiting over 12 years for the Heights to take off (the Riverview area--now an arts district is where I've holed up waiting and waiting for gentrification...and waiting...

It does have parking--for over 3 cars. It also has an elevator. I picture a wealthy family--one with several olderish kids--renting here. They've got the pool, the view, the elevator, the parking, a lot of bedrooms. This set-up would cost a fortune in the city. It's just such a specific target market. Dixon is getting bolder and bolder.

I have a vivid 1989 bubble story. I lived in a Victorian (not renovated) on the water in Branford Ct (rented). It went up for sale in 1989 for one million dollars. It sat on the market for 6 years and slowly dropped it's price down to $350,000 in 1995. SOLD. Today it worth well over a million dollars again.

Brewster--does your silence mean that you were not happy with the job? My roof is at the end of it's life span and I can't deal with the head games of appointment making with Capital Roof so I have zip right now. It's a huge investment and this aspect of the construction business is even more shady than the usual suspects. Feedback is needed. I have a flat roof.

You should not be paying for any of these things. Wow. You're being taken advantage of by your landlord. It's his responsibility to upkeep the place and make it safe and habitable, not yours. You should get all the money you gave him back. The only time that I could see you paying is if you directly broke something by mistake. It also sounds like the building isn't safe structurally. I have an old Victorian and if I had my doorways behaving that way it would freak me out. If your landlord gives you a hard time then I would get out and find another place.

Last week, my husband and I noticed a nice young couple sitting on the front steps and coming and going from the 2 family near our house. We thought they had rented the place but they were tourists here from Quebec for the week--going into the city every morning to see all the sights--from Jersey City Heights!
The building belongs to Dixon. They paid cash and got the place for $90,00 below market a few years ago and their tenants have been nice but never stayed more than a year. This, I don't like....

The Kitchen Cousins are cute but if you caught any of their earlier episodes you'd run in HORROR from them--especially if you own an historic home. They went into this poor women's kitchen and against her adament wishes, removed a gorgeous and valuable chest built that the owner loved and then they SPRAY PAINTED HER original 1920's subway tiled wall LAVENDER! Then they hung a work light and spraypainted that lavender too! WTF!!!!

Well I'll miss your lovely optimistic sunny face Monday morning vind-guy. I have a good nose and the jitney's I've been on do not smell and the bus drivers of the 87, the 123 etc are WAY MORE SCARY in their speeding--I mean driving habits than the jitneys. I've never seen one that I've been on do anything wrong driving-wise. It must be tough to navigate New York if you're that afraid of speeding because you must avoid all NYC cabs as well.
I believe in statistics but show me statistics for the Riverview area of the Heights specifically and then I'll take heed.

A death machine that smells of urine? Really? First, they don't smell and they're not dangerous but I suppose you never take the subway either because THAT smells like urine. And I suppose you must avoid walking down the streets of midtown in humid August when EVERYTHING smells like garbage. Maybe you're not cut out for urban living.

I am not lying about 30 minutes door to desk. THE JITNEY IS ALWAYS 20 MINUTES TOTAL AT THE HEIGHT OF RUSH HOUR. Today, I caught the 8:30 and arrived 3 minutes before 9 am. My offices happen to be at 40th and Broadway. The jitney lets me out at 40th and 8th avenue. My house is a 4 minute walk to the park. . Getting home takes 5 minutes longer. I leave the office at 5 and am home at 5:35. The jitneys go straight thru the bus lane and avoid all that traffic.

I'm specifically speaking of the Riverview area of the Heights so screw your averages and your statistics. The heights will be worth more because they have further to go than downtown. People used to say the sun never shines in Hoboken. Brownstones sold for $50,000 in the 70's. It takes time but being pioneering gentrifier requires patience.

I love the jitney. They come like clockwork on Palisade every 25 minutes. I walk 2 blocks to Riverview Park and I'm at 40th and 8th Avenue in 20 minutes--door to door from my house to my desk it's literally 30 minutes. And there's Stop and Shop and if you venture down the elevator to Hoboken there's that massive Shop Rite so in my section of the heights you don't need a car at all unless you're too old and sedentary to get some fresh air and move your body a little bit.

I'm not going to get into a battle with you over this but web md says this

"Dehydration is a condition that occurs when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in."
If someone bleeds to death, no one I know describes them as being dehydrated but whatever....

You don't die of dehydration with ebola--it's from internal bleeding and organ failure--web md says this below--
"Inside the blood vessels, the virus causes abnormal clotting and bleeding at the same time. Bleeding into the skin causes a red rash that appears all over. With the ability to clot normally destroyed, bleeding occurs internally as well as from the eyes, ears, and nose. This whole cascade of events causes the organs to fail. The loss of blood, along with organ failure, is what makes ebola so deadly. But if doctors can keep the organs working with intravenous fluids, blood transfusions, a ventilator, and other treatments, there’s a much better chance they can save lives."

Some doctors feel the people who survive may have a higher alkaline body composition and this gives them an edge.
We certainly haven't had enough cases in this country to be so optimistic about the survival rate yet.

The heights is a large area but the northeastern section by Riverview is exploding right now with young families. I heard people on the 87 talking about the neighborhood--he asked her if she liked it here and she said "Yes. It's really close to Hoboken." She asked him if he liked it and he said "Yeah. I barbecue now in my backyard. It's awesome." So it's priorities. I do see the money being poured into Journal Square and I don't see that in the Heights but it's got lots of 2-family houses and if you like Hoboken, you walk 2 short blocks and there you are. In 20 years I think both places will have appreciated--which one more? It's anyone's guess.

The heights around Riverview Park and around Congress where the light rail elevator is are gentrifying now. I saw a lot of young parents with strollers at the Farmers Market in Riverview. It looked like Hoboken there. Of course, go down almost any side street and you see vinyl siding galore but there are some pretty pockets like Ogden, certain stretches of Sherman where I live and Webster etc...I take the Jitney into city every morning for $3.00 and I'm there in 20 minutes. I love the jitneys.
