Kitchen in the basement, Elevation Question
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk

I am thinking about buying a home downtown. The kitchen, bathroom and living room are in the basement, below grade. Will the new elevation codes prevent me from doing a total gut and leaving the kitchen, bathroom and living room down there?
Before I go to the building dept. just want to get some thoughts.

I dont know how intricate your cornice is, but there is a PVC product called versatex, there are others but I prefer this one. You should consider it. I used it on a cornice I installed on one of my buildings and it is still perfect after 7 years. It is expensive, but very,very well worth it.
You can buy it in 4x8 sheets and can get may different style corbels and moldings. It is paintable also.

Simple soloution, have all the big builders, we all know who they are, take a square block or two and redo the sewer lines.
We didn't need new sidewalks and trees and they don't need tax breaks. They DO need to chip in and do their part.

How about a pump station !!! There is plenty of room downtown.

Believe it or not you actually need a permit to park in front of your own driveway. Obtained thru the parking authority.

Yes, what about the golf course it is on private property.

We blew the chance years ago to have the county's first public course. When there was a proposal to put two championship courses among many other amenties (ball fields, swimming pools,etc) . This could have been a smaller version of Bethpage State Park.
Yet there are hundreds of unused acres in a open space starved city.
Something like this would create hundreds of jobs if not thousands, and could be a great avenue of revenue.

But no, let the big money people come in buy up all the land around the park and create their own little oasis. Still keeping us on the outside looking in.

It is true, they are building a course. I was there just before they closed and they showed me the layout. It will be only 9 holes but hey, it's better than nothing.
It is supposed to be a par 36, 3 par 3's 3 par 4's and 3 par 5's. Seems like it will be a pretty good layout with some trees and some water.
They county did try to make it 18 holes but couldn't get the rest of the land.

Big props to Mr. Degise & the rest of the county who is making this happen.

Former boxing champ Gatti found dead in BrazilAssociated Press

Updated: July 11, 2009, 8:35 PM EDT
SAO PAULO (AP) - Former boxing champion Arturo Gatti, whose epic trilogy with Micky Ward branded him one of the most exciting fighters of his generation, was found dead in a hotel room in the posh seaside resort of Porto de Galihnas early Saturday.

Police investigator Edilson Alves told The Associated Press that the body of the former junior welterweight champ was discovered in his room at the tourist resort, where Gatti had arrived on Friday with his Brazilian wife Amanda and 1-year-old son.

Gatti through the years Photos: Arturo Gatti was one of the most exciting and courageous fighters of his era. Take a look at his storied career.
Alves said police were investigating and it was unclear how the 37-year-old Canadian died.

"It is still too early to say anything concrete, although it is all very strange," Alves said. He declined to provide any additional details.

A spokeswoman for the state public safety department said Gatti's wife and son were unhurt. The woman declined to give a name in keeping with department policy.

"There were no bullet or stab wounds on his body, but police did find blood stains on the floor," she said.

Brazilian boxer and four-time world champion Acelino "Popo" Freitas told the G1 Web site of Brazil's largest TV network Globo that he was a close friend of Gatti and his wife, and that he "knew they were having some sort of problem and were about to separate."

Known for his straightforward punching and granite-like chin, Gatti captured the junior welterweight title in 1995, when he defeated Tracy Harris Patterson in Atlantic City, N.J. His brawling style and natural charisma made him a fan favorite, and he became one of New Jersey's adopted sons while fighting some of his most memorable battles on the Boardwalk.

"I never saw a crowd show so much love for someone like the way that the crowds flocked to Arturo's fights in Atlantic City," said referee Randy Neumann, who officiated Gatti's last fight against Alfonso Gomez two years ago. "I mean, they were so into him and the crowds were electric. He just fought his heart out every fight."

Gatti continued to keep a home in New Jersey after he retired in 2007, with a career record of 40-9 and 31 knockouts.

"His entire boxing career he fought with us, we've known him since he was 17," Kathy Duva of promoter Main Events told The Associated Press. "It's just an unspeakable tragedy. I can't even find words. It's a horror."

Gatti defended his title three times before moving up in weight and getting stopped by Angel Manfredy in 1997. He lost twice more before running off four straight wins, setting up a big payday against Oscar De La Hoya.

Although Gatti was knocked out in the fifth round of a lopsided fight, his almost cult-like following never wavered in its support.

"He just captured the imagination of so many people," Duva said. "We used to joke it was a crowd like the Grateful Dead's, it was the same people every time."

Gatti would later lose to big names like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Carlos Baldomir, but it was his three-fight series against Ward that left an indelible impression on fight fans.

The first time they met, in May 2002, the 140-pounders traded devastating blows for 10 rounds before leaving it up to the judges to decide a winner. Ward earned the mixed decision, by one point on one scorecard and two points on another, in what Ring Magazine called "Fight of the Year."

The rematch was just as brutal, with Gatti knocking Ward down in the third round with a big right. Ward not only recovered from the blow, which broke Gatti's hand, but managed to go the distance. This time, Gatti earned a clear unanimous decision.

Gatti and Ward had their rubber match at Boardwalk Hall in June 2003, and it was again called "Fight of the Year" by Ring Magazine. Ward knocked Gatti to the floor in the sixth round, but despite fighting with his right hand broken again, Gatti managed to win the decision.

"I was sitting him at the post-fight press conference - I can't remember which one - and I looked at his hand and it was three times the normal size," Duva said. "He gave me this goofy grin and he said, 'Yeah, I know. We'll party tonight and I'll go to the hospital tomorrow."'

Gatti attempted a comeback in July 2007, getting knocked out in seven rounds by Gomez. Afterward, with his legion of fans cheering for him in the arena, Gatti announced his retirement in the dressing room at Boardwalk Hall.

Neumann said it was tough for him to end that fight, simply because of Gatti's incredible ability to come back in fights.

"I couldn't stop that fight, simply because he was Arturo Gatti," Neumann said. "He was much more dignified to go out that way. He had to be counted out. When he fought, you never knew if he could come back. He looked beaten and still came back."

With that loss, Gatti acknowledged the end of all his travails and triumphs.

"I remember walking away from his last fight, and somebody walked up to him in the casino late at night and congratulated him," Duva said. "And he said, 'Why did he congratulate me?' And I said, 'He was excited to meet you.' And he kind of looked very surprised by that.

"He had no idea what an icon he was or how much he meant to people."

Pass along taxes?

Not too shy to talk

I was in a conversation with someone today, and he said he don't believe Jersey City has a pass on law, which allows a landlord to pass on a tax increase to the tenants.

Can anyone comment on this.

New Heights,

I am as much of a cynic as anyone, but I think the kickback theory is alittle bit of stretch.

Iron workers don't install sprinkler systems. Plumbers sometimes do, but typically it's a sprinkler fitters job.

I also agree with the 10 x rent roll. Thats the way we did it before the boom.
We also need our realtors to start pricing these homes correctly and not be so worried about getting the listing. The investors are the ones that are going to help get this market back on track. There are alot of people who made alot of money in the condo conversion craze, that are on the sidelines.

Brewster I also remember those days. One of my 1st buys back in 1996 was a brownstone on 4th just off cole that I converted to a 4 family. The price $67,500. Thats no Typo.

Condo's were not ment to be rental investments. Buy multi families then talk about what kind of investment you made.
