I recommend Hazel Zoleta at Liberty Realty for rentals.

Yes a park, perfect for the homeless to sleep in. Just make JSQ more comfortable for them.

It is definitely a very transient area, people move in and out, alot of foreigners, single people, homeless, etc. Redevelopment is expected to be completed around 2060 according to the website.

LOL @ 2060. Thanks for posting this link. I forgot about this website. It seems as though the halt of updates on the website coincide with the market crash in 2008. Bummer.

With the new toll hikes, do you think that will resurrect the revitalization of the PATH Bus Terminal? Also what is the deal with the stall of that project in JSQ. That big empty lot is unsightly.

I am writing to find out where other parent's are putting their school age children into summer camp in Jersey City, NJ. I have a 5 year old son who is in kindergarten that I am in the process of making arrangements for. We live in the Jersey City Heights, but I am willing to travel to a different area. If you could please provide a link to the web site or the costs and whether or not they provide lunch and do activities and take field trips it would be really helpful.

I am curious to know if there are any updates regarding these allegations. The TECCS admissions lottery is scheduled to occur on January 19, 2011. The disposition of this case will help concerned parents make in informed decision on their child’s entry into this school.

Does anyone know how I go about looking up the court case and following it?

They seem to see it as a public service: "Pathmark ... is particularly noted for its historical commitment to opening stores within the inner cities of its trading area."

http://www.aptea.com/pathmark.asp


That is PR.....A&P (GAP) purchased Pathmark less than 2 years ago because they thought they could almost immediately sell a large portion to Kroger. Kroger immediately realized the extreme debt load A&P took on to purchase Pathmark. A&P absolutely needed to make a deal strengthening Kroger's bargaining position. Both companies got stubborn. A&P went through 3 Ceos and a CFO and that is where the situation is today.


Wow I wish Kroger would come to this area. They would get my business.

I haven’t had my cornice repaired, but I did have it painted and I think that it was around $700 to $900 to have it scraped, painted and have the bird wire installed. It was hard to find someone to do it because the building is 3 ½ stories high (3 floors with an egress basement).

Quote:

The original first time home buyer credit was like a loan. It had to be paid back via your tax return over 16 years. The new one is a full on 8k tax credit. If you qualify, you get the whole amount. Unfortunately, the income qualification is set pretty low, 75k single, 150k married.


They increased the income limit. Please see the details below.

The credit is reduced or eliminated for higher-income taxpayers. The credit is phased out based on your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Different income limits apply to purchases on or before Nov. 6, 2009 and those after that date.

For purchases on or before Nov. 6, 2009, for a married couple filing a joint return, the phase-out range is $150,000 to $170,000. For other taxpayers, the phase-out range is $75,000 to $95,000. This means that the full credit is available for married couples filing a joint return whose MAGI is $150,000 or less and for other taxpayers whose MAGI is $75,000 or less.

For purchases after Nov. 6, 2009, for a married couple filing a joint return, the phase-out range is $225,000 to $245,000. For other taxpayers, the phase-out range is $125,000 to $145,000. This means that the full credit is available for married couples filing a joint return whose MAGI is $225,000 or less and for other taxpayers whose MAGI is $125,000 or less. (11/19/09)

I think that the sticker suggestion is a good idea.

We had problems with people blocking our driveway and have had success with placing printed pieces of paper on their windshield with a warning. Such as “Warning you are blocking our driveway and you will be ticket and or towed.” We give people 2 warnings before we escalate the issue. The next step was to contact the Jersey City Parking Authority and have them come and issue a ticket. Word got out on the street and we haven’t had a consistent problem since.

I think that placing a sign is also another excellent suggestion. There is a place that we got our sign made on the corner of Franklin Avenue and I think Cambridge Avenue. It’s right behind the McDonalds on Central Avenue in the Heights. I think that the signage along with the warnings backed up by tickets should remedy your problem.

Long ago I asked the store manager why no liquor when the BJ's on Rte.17 had such great prices. He told me there are laws (County or City?) that preclude two liquor franchises from operating too near to one another (presumably a block or two) and Shop-Rite Liquors had gotten the "local" franchise first.


The BJ's in East Rutherford has liquor. You really need a car to get there though.

We like the produce. Not ceaper than the fruit markets but consistently good quality.

Genesis is the least expensive option in downtown (~$600/month) but I had concerns that the older children (ages 3 or so) were not segregated from infants when we visited. The staff is very friendly but young and didn't give what I felt were convincing answers to questions about policies, procedures, staffing, etc. I also felt there were some safety issues with the setup. The daycare is held in the church's auditorium and, even though the stairwell to the stage was blocked, there wasn't much to keep a bigger child from crawling up on the stage, etc.

Really liked River School, Growing Tree on 5th and Smile on Jersey Ave.


My son attends Genesis and we are very happy with the quality of education there. He is three and can write his name, numbers, knows the alphabet and with all of their phonetic sounds, knows his colors and numbers by sight to 100. He regularly has homework and he does a lot of work at school that they send home weekly. The academics might be a little rigorous for some but we are happy. We chose Genesis because of the Abeka Curriculum and the 5 to 1 student teacher ratio.

All of the kids were together in after care but that is no longer the case. The three, four and five year olds are now in a separate class room in aftercare.

I HATE Starbucks, but if bringing in people that want to see the area flourish (for whatever reason) leads to more corporate businesses/restaurants rather than the bodegas and poor quality restaurants then bring it on. In time it will lead to higher end unique restaurants.

I live here in the Heights. I like it. I don't like the inconsiderate neighbors that think they are in their homeland (where ever that may be), the scary figures that I often see around at night, the roach filled restaurants (cafe at the corner of Manhattan and Central - first week in town had breakfast there - terrible service and two roaches ran across the counter and onto my plate - I have not been back).

I want to see it flourish. I want my children to be safe. I don't want to have to call the cops on EVERY summer night so my family can go to sleep before 2am (the music starts at noon, ends at 2am - the screaming over the music goes on throughout - luckily there is cold weather or they would be outside cranking music all year). The Heights has the potential, but without some money moving in you will have to deal with all the things that must be overlooked.


+1 on this post.

and bring in some businesses that aren't 99 cent stores or chinese food.

I have lived in the heights since 03 and the pace of gentrification as been about the same as watching paint dry. The neighborhood can’t change over fast enough for me.

Sometimes I kick myself and wish I would have stretched financially and bought something downtown. Oh well we are stuck now. With the level of foreclosures, short sales and distress sells that took we can’t get what we paid for the current house we live in.
