Here is a link to new construction in JC. Not sure if it is everything but there are 37000 units in the planning stage or under construction.

For a 3-bdrm, that sounds generally right - probably on the low end of the range. I don't think neighborhoods matter that much in the calculation of monthly maintenance fees. A building that's downtown will have the same overhead as one in JSQ. The biggest expense for the building is likely the master insurance policy, followed by the heat/hot water if it's common expense rather than billed separately to each unit owner. A 10-unit building is a small one, so it's not going to get the same economies of scale as, say, a 200-unit building that would make having a gym or hiring a doorman feasible.


I agree with Jaded that sounds reasonable for a 3 br what is the overall sq ft for that unit, if it is 1200-1500 sq ft it's a good deal.

But good in the long run, as those shut out of Razza look elsewhere, other places up their game to compete for these customers, and new restaurateurs see JC as a viable place to open and still be on the NYC foodie radar like Brooklyn is.


One item that was on many peoples wish list who wanted to see night life grow is that we needed a reason for people to come to Jersey City. We have one now.

Good God, 62 ft waves????????????? Any idea if that is from trough or the water level? I thought oceanographers use the latter, which would make the waves 124 ft from trough to peak!

We are in the cycle of the full moon which makes the tides higher combined with the Cat 5 wind from the storm. I can conceive of a 62 ft wave out on the ocean but not sure about a wave that big making it to land.

This is usually where I drop off my donated clothes, but I was hoping for something more targeted. If no other suggestions come up, I will definitely go to the Salvation Army drop off.

Thanks


I've been donating my clothes to St Lucy's there are clothing bins in the lot behind the shelter. I don't know if suits would be useful to their clients but it might be worth a call to find out.

I agree, given the limited info. Look, here's AC and fridge 101:

There's the compressor, the thing that actually makes cold, and there's the controls that tell it when to go on and off. The Compressor has a motor that you can hear start when it needs cold, and stop when it's cold enough. That's in addition to the quieter fan motor.

The compressor has no slightly on, it's either on or off. If your compressor is running, and the tubes behind the filter are getting cold, then your compressor is OK. If you can hear the compressor running and the tubes don't get cold or only a little bit, it's toast. If you can't get the compressor to run, or it gets cold but turns off too soon, it might be just a controls problem.

Honestly, I just don't think a window unit is worth agonizing about. Even a fridge isn't worth replacing the compressor. I did it for a side by side, cost $400 and it crapped out just after the year warrantee. Controls are different. I just replaced the computer AGAIN in my 9 year old fridge that wasn't keeping cold, cost $120 for the part, youtubed the procedure that was easier than swapping a PC motherboard, and it was back working perfectly.


If this is the problem the parts and labor will come close or equal to what you would pay for a new mid price ac.

Sounds like a failing compressor, go to YouTube and put in you make and model along with the basic problem, such as not cooling and see what comes up. If it is a simple inexpensive fix the video can tell you how to fix it.

Robin.

You could be right and I hope you are, I'm expecting at least a $10,000 hit. Do the people who set the ratio each year, the guess of how the total value of all the ratables has risen, know their business or not? How close they were determines how much of a rate change to expect.

Either way this needs to be done. I hope all of us that are here nine years from now keep a vigilant eye out and don't let a delay happen again.


Should we look at Hoboken's taxes as an example of where our taxes will be or are they a horse of a different color?

But Fairway does. How come there's no Fairway love here? I used to go to the one on 133rd all the time when I was visiting Columbia frequently.


When I lived in Manhattan I always went to Fairway, it was a great store many years ago. Recently I went to the store in Paramus and visited the Chelsea location, I was very disappointed. Perhaps I got used to shopping at Whole Foods and realized Fairway is not keeping up with the competition.

The floor plans look nice the only discrepancy is they indicate the largest unit is 2br/3ba but I was hard pressed to see a third bathroom unless the consider the washer/dryer the third bath or 1/2 bath.

It's totally doable DIY, I've done several similar doorways, but it's not for beginners, which the OP sounds like. In fact I'm dealing with one on my current reno, a 42" x 92" opening. I have no idea what was there to begin with, perhaps french doors, but it's an awkward width for them, you'd have to open both because 21" is an uncomfortable squeeze for a bedroom door. What I did on another floor was make an 80" transom with a flat panel and bring in the sides with lumber & molding to create a 30" doorway.

Another unit had a 60" wide archway with no doors. I added jambs and used flexible PVC moldings to put a jamb and stop across the arch. I then took hollow core doors, cut them to fit and glued in lumber where it was hollow on the arc.

Nice work Brewster, I couldn't DIY it which is why I used a contractor plus I couldn't see myself working a day job then coming home to construction. Perhaps you are in the wrong line of work you could make a very good living doing work like this.

I agree with Brewster, hire a professional to do this it is not DIY project. You can price out the track and most of the materials at Home Depot. I did mine years ago so what it cost me wouldn't be relevant to today. Just getting the doors aligned will drive you crazy. Measure the space so you have a better idea of what will look good in your space.

I installed double pocket doors, I asked the contractor to get the tallest doors that were available. they also have a latch to lock them. I can utilize all the space near the doors and it makes the room feel larger and it soundproofs both rooms.
