I worked in a building in the Heights 20 years ago it had 2 ghosts in it. I drove by the building recently and saw that the building was converted into rental apts I wonder if the ghosts were still there and if the tenants have any interesting stories.

There's nothing on the website that says To The Trade Only. Plus the website is very consumer friendly most trade only websites are basic and hard to navigate.

I was really excited about this until I realized it is targeted at the daytime work crowd and will only open during weekdays and closing at 7 PM.

Food halls have been a hot trend all over major European cities for years now, and most have hours that run into the late evening (at least 9 PM) and court everyone, not just a work, daytime crowd. I am really surprised Mack-Cali does not see the potential of such a concept to thrive at night (and, weekends!) by courting a large demographic.


After 5 pm that area is dead, the amount of foot traffic doesn't justify staying open.

PANYNJ sold the retail space to Westfield for $1.415 billion in 2013. PANYNJ does get extra payments if/when the mall revenue exceeds a certain threshold (I don’t know what that threshold is).

It may seem foolish for PANYNJ to sell it off, but given how many empty stores there still are, it may have been wise to let it go.


The only retailers that see to be busy are the Apple Store and Eataly.

New racetrack idea pitched for in and around Liberty State Park
Updated 11:01 AM; Posted 11:01 AM (2018)

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — A Formula One racetrack and stadium is being proposed for a swath of land in and around Liberty State Park


A bunch of formula 1 race cars will destroy any semblance of "peace and serenity" if they race at night forget about ever getting a decent nights sleep for a radius of at least 5 miles around the race track. Then add on the noise of 10,000+ fans cheering their favorite racer.

I've seen it at 99 Ranch not sure if they have it all the time.

There is, seemingly, no ceiling to DTJC rental rates... I thought 5K for a 3bd was the absolute top, but recent buildings coming to market with those type of units (3bd) are asking well over that, with some even at 6K. Even with a promotional free month when signing your lease, you are looking at 5.5K.

As for whether or not these high rises are filling up, almost every new building coming onto the market fills up within a few months. I am no longer surprised by what the local market bears.


Rents have been falling in Manhattan this will probably happen in JC as well.

If the hard drive doesn't mount anymore, you can use a data recovery program for the Mac called Data Rescue. I've been using it for several years it has been extremely helpful in recovering deleted from hard drives, SD cards, and USB sticks, even if they've been formatted before.

Unless the logic board is completely fried on the hard drive, it should be able to read and recover from any partition. I've have best results with photos and documents.

Good Luck!

I'm not sure if the HD is still good. This is what happened, my MacBook Pro froze when I was on the web, I did a force quit by pressing and holding down the start button. When I tried to restart a blue/green screen came up with an apple icon I had not seen before and it would go into restart mode again. The HD may be toast at this point.

Thanks for the recommendations, I will see if I can access the HD and do what you reccomended, a new laptop arrives tomorrow.

I always felt that tire insurance was a BS thing until living in JC... there is SO MUCH DEBRIS all over the place, particularly around construction areas. I can not even begin to count all the times I have had to take a car into one of many tire places to have nails removed. At $5 - $10 per incidence, I have spent a pretty penny getting tires fixed. I spoke to someone a few years ago who had the tire insurance and he was super happy with it. Live and learn...

Additional warranties can be OK *IF* the warranty is by/from the actual manufacturer. In those cases, dealerships actually love to get the business from those warranty repairs, as they are re-imbursed directly by the manufacturer, which means less paperwork and hassle to get it approved and paid. If the warranty is from a third party, avoid at all costs.


I had wheel and tire insurance when I had a BMW one winter incident when I hit a pothole and damaged the wheel and tire made it worth while. The cost of replacing the wheel and tire was twice the cost of the insurance.

Excellent advice, but this is my 84 year old mother!! We had a hell of a time already talking her down from buying a Legacy she fell in love with without the Eyesight automatic safety package. As my sister put it, she's lived her life, we just don't want her killing someone who hasn't! Hopefully she won't drive too much longer but her 15 year old Avalon is ready to stop driving before she is.


Avoid any add-ons such as undercoating, scotchguarding the interiors or extended warantees. Check to see if there is a spare tire manufacturers are removing them to increase gas mileage and to cut costs, wheel and tire insurance is worth getting especially if you have run-flats which are expensive to replace.

Is that why marijuana and opiates have been illegal in the US and almost all states for decades?

And why the push to legalize marijuana has been pushed by the public in dozens of states, while the government in almost every one of those states has opposed legalization?

Quote:
The vice story said one NJ proposal wanted to start the tax at 7%, then after several years it would grow to 25%. No idea what alcohol is taxed at but it is pretty obvious the only thing they want is immediate increased usage and a new revenue stream that grows to feed their spending addiction.

Oooookay

First of all, alcohol is taxed at 12 cents a gallon for beer, 87.5 cents for wine, spirits $5.50.

Second, both governments and pro-pot advocates are openly saying they could use this to raise taxes.

Third, spending levels haven't changed much in NJ since at least 2009.

Finally, feel free to go over the NJ budget and tell us all what ought to be cut. You know that property tax relief is a huge chunk of spending, right? Maybe we can cut education spending, perhaps? Police? CHIP?


The state is looking for a big tax payday like Colorado.

I know there is some sort of income-based rebate and a "senior freeze," but I don't know how that might impact some bills or rebates.


There are lots of hoops you have to jump through and you don't get any relief until many years have passed.

This is terrible news many of the restaurant spaces are empty now not a good look for the area. I hope they get another good Chinese restaurant soon.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when dispensaries open up for recreational weed. I'm anticipating the NIMBYs that pack every association and board to not allow that type of business to open up in their neighborhood against the best wishes of the residents that overwhelmingly voted in favor of it. Same thing with why we have such poor biking infrastructure - every bike lane proposal is shot down by those boards.


Tell the NIMBYS that the state tax revenues from the sale of weed will bring down their property taxes and they will jump on board faster than you can blink.

More important for single-family home than condo. But honestly no need to inspect every home in the city.


I'm ok with the inspection as long as the assessment isn't wildly inflated. The tax dept has a history of doing this.
