Re: Where to buy window security bars?

I used a guy by the name of Ortega. His number is 201 658 6805. I think the name of his business is Bergen Iron or something like that.

Anyway, he was really good and really well priced. We already had some iron work on our building but wanted to put in bars on the windows. He was able to perfectly match what was already there and installed the bars super quickly

Nothing but positive feedback and best of luck to these guys...Stopped there last night because I needed a minor adjustment on my bike and they didn't even charge me.

Glad they are around.

Only wish they had MORE inventory!

That's what the empty bottles were for. Last year you could bring nalgene containers - just pour your beer in there, walk out and you're good to go.

What was annoying last year was the 4 beer policy. Assuming you were there from the first band to the last, that's not even 1 beer per hour. They should just do like most concert venues do - no more than 1 beer per person at a time and stop serving people if they are intoxicated. (And yes, i know it's a state park and all that stuff, but the limit is a bit strict)

(...just checked the website... you can still bring nalgene bottles and it's a 7 drink per person limit)

Second both the Hamilton Park Ale House and White Star.

Both have great TVs. HPAH is a bit bigger if you have a large group.

If riding at night, make sure you have a light on your bike! I have one of those red blinking ones that cost like $10, and it's so worth it!

Re: Good and Relatively Close Beach to Jersey City???

Sandy hook is good if you're going w/ a lot of people b/c they only charge you by the car, not per person. If you go, go early b/c it fills up fast. After a certain number of cars, they close it off, forcing you to go into Sea Bright... which is not a good beach at all.

I'm a fan of Long Branch beaches, but probably cause I'm from Monmouth County :)

Went there the other day after a long time of not going (i've only had breakfast there)... must say, that was one amazing mojito!

Food was ok, but I'm not really a judge since cuban food isn't my favorite. Like the vegetarian options.

Re: Question about Association Taxes

thanks. We're only 6 units, so we manage the building ourselves, actually, it mostly falls on me b/c everyone is lazy. When we took it over from the builders (after the last unit sold) it was an LLC. Ugg.

Do you manage your building? Would love to speak with people who manage their buildings

Question about Association Taxes
#16
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I know it's not tax season, but are there any accountants out there or people who manage their condo association that can help...

Our association is an LLC. in 2006, the building wasn't occupied and the builders only filled an 1120H form. This year, our accountant filed the 1120H and a CBT-150C and CBT-100, which are coorporate business tax forms. We ended up paying taxes (which I thought was wierd because we don't make any money, but when I went back to the accountant multiple times, he assured me that was standard for associations that were listed as corporations). I'm still not convinced. Anyone know the answer? Are we filling corporate taxes because we're an LLC? Has your association paid taxes in the past? HELP!

Re: Maintenance Fee for a brownstone appt - how much is appropriate?

it's 100% the total policy, with the same exact coverage as the previous policy.

All I'm saying is that shopping around pays off. Don't just accept a cost for what it is, do your research :)

Also may fail to realize that much of downtown JC is in a flood zone which means you need good ol' flood insurance which costs a ton. also FEMA regulates the premiums so you cant really shop it around. Bottom line is it costs $ to live.


FEMA regulates the amount of coverage required, but not the premiums. You're required to cover 100% of the total replacement cost or $250K per unit, whichever is cheaper. So if you're association has a master policy, you should be able to get 100% of coverage and not carry it on your mortgage policy, assuming you have one (for example, we have 6 units, and the replacement cost, which is what our general building insurance is, is only 1M... obviously that is cheaper). If you think you're premiums are too high, shop around. When our building's insurance was up, we looked at all the different companies (state farm, liberty, etc.) and were able to save almost $3000 a year by switching.

There is no magic number. Ask to see a breakdown of the budget (projected and spent). That will give you an idea what your money is going towards.

Also, is there an anticipated project that is coming up in the next few years? Like a new roof, paining, new carpet, etc. that would require a lot of $? they may be building a bank for a project that is several years away.

Just make sure it's not unnecessary management fees due to a greedy management company. With just four units, it should be VERY clear exactly how money is being spent.

This happened to my neighbor right after she moved in. She was required to attend the court appearance (just paying wasn't an option). Anyway, the judge waived the ticket because she was knew and told her to be more responsible next time. She basically just told the truth... that it was late at night, she just moved here and honestly didn't see the spot.

For a women's haircut, the prices are very much in line with other places. I suppose they are too for men (for a salon, not the barber).

I got my bangs trimmed there and was really dissappointed. Not only were they cut weird (very blunt as opposed to peicey as they originally were) but they were REALLY crooked (i had to go home and fix them myself and I suck at that)! It was a huge let down.

Mall Security ??? what mall Security,have you taken a good look at whos securing the mall ??? Theres not much seperating the Security from the Thugs we're all blogging about.

What a Joke !!!

I'm not saying that the security gaurds currently employeed are the greates (obviously they arent).

Simon malls is a huge company, I'm sure if they wanted to they could hire decent security. With a new wave of high end stores there/coming in (sephora, coach, Armani exchange) they are eventually going to have to do something.
