It is different. Read the article below:

"The sculpture was loaned to the city in 1983 and plunked down near the corner of Charles and Beacon streets and never reclaimed."

I am sure there are plenty of people who pay $40K in taxes in plenty of places. That is not my issue. The issue is being whacked with a 164% tax increase in one go.

The valuation is in line with sales but if the 1.62% tax rate is final, then the housing market will collapse in Jersey City.

New Tax Rate is Insane!
#5
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I just got my revaluatation letter from Appraisal Systems:

2018 Total Assessed Value: $2,416,400

2018 Estimated Annual Taxes: $39,145.68

2017 Total Assessed Value: $190,000

2017 Total Annual Taxes: $14,820.00

According to this, my property taxes will increase by $24,000 or 2.6 times what I am paying now.

That's completely insane.

Re: Data Recovery

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!

Tennis Instructor Recommendation
#7
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


A buddy of mine and I are looking for a tennis instructor who might be available in the evenings in Berry Lane Park or Lincoln Park. We are not absolute beginners but we are looking to improve our service and technique.

Perhaps someone has some recommendations. Thanks in advance.

Vogue Cafe - new French cafe on York & Marin

I stopped in here today and I could not believe the pastries. They are baked on the premises by the owner (who is French) and were still hot from the oven.

They have espresso and 6 or 7 different varieties of French pastries as well as sanwdiches but no French bread.

Incredibly nice people too. They're in Tommy 2 Scoops' old place at 177 York St. I'm so happy!

There are two kinds of roaches in the city — "waterbugs," giant roaches that can fly (they can be over an inch long) and the regular roaches (usually between 1/2" and and 3/4".)

Waterbugs typically live in the walls or basements and in dark moist areas in old buildings. They look nasty but typically you don't see them very often since they don't live in the apartment. And they are not typically a problem unless the apartment has a hole in the wallboard where they are getting into the apartment.

The smaller roaches are the real problem. They typically live in the apartment and can be in the sink, fridge, kitchen cabinets or range. You need to do a bug bomb to get rid of them.

Re: Jersey City man gets gun license after three-year legal war

Sorry, I didn't see the out of state part. Yes, you're right that's the right way to do it.

Although, when I inherited my grandfather's rifles from TX, I just declared them and took them with me on the plane as checked luggage. Was is the right way? No but it saved me tons of headaches. If someone else is shipping them to you, then you will have to go through an FFL and paperwork.

As far as buying ammo or looking at a gun, most gun shops that I've been to in NJ will not serve you unless you show them an FID card. I buy a lot of target loads from Dick's Sporting Goods in Union and they always want to see my card.

You don't have to do anything to legally inherit them but I would recommend getting an FID (Firearms ID) card to be able to purchase ammunition in NJ.

Here are the NJ statutes: 

13:54-1.13 Firearms passing to heirs or legatees 

(a) Notwithstanding the provisions of this subchapter concerning the acquisition of a firearm, a permit to purchase a 
handgun or a firearms purchaser identification card shall not be required of an heir or legatee for the passing of a firearm, 
upon the death of its owner. A person so acquiring ownership may retain the firearm if he or she meets the requirements 
of N.J.A.C. 13:54-1.5 and 1.6. 
(b) If an heir or legatee is not qualified to acquire a firearm, he or she may retain ownership of the firearm for the 
purpose of sale for a period of 180 days, which period may be extended by the chief of police or the Superintendent. 
During such period the firearm must be placed in the custody of the chief of police or Superintendent. 
(c) In the case of assault firearms or machine guns disposition shall be in accordance with N.J.A.C. 13:54-5..


13:54-1.5 Prerequisites for a permit to purchase handgun or a firearms purchaser identification card 
(a) Every person issued a permit to purchase a handgun, or a firearms purchaser identification card, shall be 18 years 
of age and of good repute in the community in which he lives. 
(b) A permit to purchase a handgun, or a firearm purchaser identification card, shall not be issued to any person: 
1. Who has been convicted of any crime; 
2. Who is drug dependent as defined by N.J.S.A. 24:21-2; 
3. Who has been or is then confined for a mental disorder in any institution; 
4. Who is a habitual drunkard or an alcoholic; 
5. Who suffers from a physical defect or disease which would make it unsafe for him or her to handle firearms; 
6. Who knowingly falsifies any information on the application form for a permit to purchase a handgun or firearms 
purchaser identification card; 
7. Who refuses to waive statutory or other rights of confidentiality relating to institutional confinement; or 
8. Where the issuance would otherwise not be in the interest of the public health, safety and welfare. 
13:54-1.6 Exception for physical disability, mental disorder or alcoholism 
A permit or identification card may be issued to a person who had previously suffered from a physical defect or disease, 
or mental disorder, or was an alcoholic if the applicant provides a certificate of a medical doctor or psychiatrist licensed 
in New Jersey, or other satisfactory proof that he or she is no longer suffering from that particular disability in such a 
manner that it would interfere with or handicap him or her in the handling of firearms.

Re: Jersey City eyes $2 billion coastal defense plan to prevent catastrophic flooding

The concept of a city-by-city approach shows how imbecile this plan is. It needs to be a regional approach with real money and real engineering and not hermetically sealing one city from the next. It will never happen. We are not the city-states of ancient Greece.

This needs to be done on the state or national level and somehow, we have to move past this constant fixation of associating progress with taxes. If this thinking continues, we will be paying no taxes for no infrastructure improvements just like the deep South. You pay nothing and you get nothing.

Add each municipality to the mix and you can see how ridiculous this plan will be when some cities put up money and others don't. It needs to be done regionally.

I don't think the goal of the campaign is to just sell condos and have everyone move here en masse. I think, it's to make Jersey City a blip on the radar, especially for New Yorkers.

Ask anyone in the boroughs if they know where Jersey City is and most won't have a clue. I should know because I was one of them. NYers have a huge mental block when it comes to Jersey. Once you reach the west side of Manhattan or the lower harbor, everything west is just a blur called Jersey.

I've lived here for 24 years and want to see this town come into its own. I want to see Jersey City promoted for something other than a bedroom community. There was a time when Brooklyn was considered unhip and uncool and part of the bridge and tunnel crowd, now, Brooklyn is more than cool. It is the the destination for food, music, entertainment. What's wrong with wanting that for JC? 

Btw, the money for this campaign came from the EDC via the suspended UEZ program, not taxpayer money.

Re: Jersey City mayor demands resignation of JCRA chief

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Don't forget that the push to get the Powerhouse redeveloped happened at the height of the real estate market so there was a lot of optimism at the time (and money) floating around.

The Port Authority is (or was until recently) the majority owner of the Powerhouse. In order for anything to be done on the building, the electrical substation needs to be moved from the western side of the building. This will cost real money and it also involves NJ Transit which has its electrical transformers for the light rail on the north side of the building. Now, the PA is focusing its efforts to fund the raising of the Bayonne bridge so who knows what will happen with it now.

Btw, the stabilization costs were split between the city, JCRA and the Port Authority so they were not all shouldered by tax payers.
