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?

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.

This sounds like your 5-year state inspection for multiple dwellings (click on inspections). The same kind of inspection occurred recently in my condo. Someone from the condo association, maintenance and an inspector entered my unit, made sure items were up to code and we had proper detectors. They were in and out of my 2-bedroom unit in less than 10 minutes.

And for what it's worth, I felt like my dad was inspecting my bedroom to make sure it was clean when I was a kid. Intrusive? Yup. Necessary? Considering the way some people live in our building, oh yeah.


My building had this inspection last year since it is a large building the inspectors went to a few "representative units" on each floor and passed the building.

About new construction, as evidenced by the previous Modera Lofts, I do think they have been playing fast and loose with the definition of bedroom for a long time now. I wonder how they got COs for all those units and if any current resident has ever pushed back on what is being leased to them. Perhaps the long, storied tradition of stuffed envelopes may still be alive in Jc.


The only thing that occurred to me is they get a variance due to being way more fireproof than old construction and thus not needing a 2nd egress. But probably not, and they're advertising 1BR as 2BR.


I found the NJ state regulations regarding a bedroom see pg 5, 5:25-1-9 and pg 6, 5:28-1-11. There may be more in the document but I didn't have time to read the entire document.

I'm not sure if this applies to JC.

"1. Each bedroom occupied by anyone in the resource family shall have two independent means of exit, at least one of which is an operable window or door suitable for emergency escape or rescue leading directly outside."

Back in the early '90s, my Oldsmobile got stolen and abandoned in Newark. Newark PD treated me like I was the criminal. The people I had to interact with at city hall were downright vicious. The car wasn't in driving condition (battery had been ripped out), so it was a hellish trip to Newark city hall to make arrangements to have a tow truck pick it up.

Then it was another trip to hell as Newark for a couple months kept sending me threatening mail (court, fees, fines) for "failing to retrieve my vehicle", even though it had been picked up within days of it being recovered.

It was a really unpleasant experience for my 20 something flat-broke ass to go through.


I had to go though the same experience in the late nineties with my elderly Honda Accord. It was stolen in West Orange and taken for a joy ride, there was a police chase, the beige interior was marked up with black magic marker every storage bin in the car had been ransacked. The Newark court system and police dept is something I never want to experience again.

Start by getting a friend to set up your Roku. Toughest piece is going to options/network settings and putting in your wireless router id/password.

After that, you'll should have access to amazon prime, and can try out both netflix and hulu - and decide what you like and what you don't. They all have plenty of content - but you have to pay for episodes of the latest shows. A lot have people have cut the cable for internet-based tv. A good compromise might be to keep the basic channels on fios, and use netflix/hulu/amazon for shows and movies.

For phone, use your cellphone, or get a voip box like Ooma or Vonage.


All good suggestions, but you left out the idea of using an HDTV antenna for local channels. The quality of over-the-air TV is incredible with the new HDTV broadcasts. For a one-time $20 investment, you can get a decent antenna that will get you awesome local TV without having to pay Verizon a monthly fee for the same stuff.


What channels will you get with the local antenna?


Enter your zip code and you will see the over the air stations that are available to you.

http://www.channelmaster.com/Antenna- ... ion-a/134.htm&Click=47329

There are other channel listings available.


Great link. Thanks for posting it. The quality of OTA HDTV channels is quite impressive. In this region, at least. I am a FiOS subscriber, and the signal quality of OTA vs FiOS for regular TV channels is almost identical.


I wanted to know what is available if I do decide to cut the cord, I am also a FIOS subscriber but I may just cut back, currently I have 3 TVs and am thinking about having FIOS on only one.
