Re: What to do with toddlers in Jersey City?
#1
Newbie
Newbie


A few more suggestions for free activities:

-Playground/water park at Enos Jones Park
-the Pavonia Branch of the JC Public Library has a nice reading area with board books
-story time at the main branch of the library

And a few that cost money:

-Zepplin Beer Garden - they welcome families and have a room in the back, so your kids can run without bothering anyone
-Grace Church has a Toddler Drop Off program

IMO, I think the renovated Liberty Science Center is great for toddlers. They have a room designed just for toddlers. I also think there other exhibits have good interactive features for entertaining toddlers.

I've had great luck with Sean O'Boyle (SJO Corp). He's done two jobs for me, one of those involved exterior stucco repair.

Re: EDUCATION-Cornelia F. Bradford No. 16 Elementary School

You can look at some of the stats using No Child Left Behind.

PS 16 is one of just a handful of schools in Jersey City to meet annual yearly progress requirements:

It also appears to have good test scores:

I don't have children there, so I'd be interested to see if these positive metrics are indicative of parents' experiences with this school.

Yes, neverleft is right. Check it out. Sorry about the misinformation:

I voted in Ward E District 19, and did not have the statewide ballot question on my ballot. Did anyone else have this problem?

Re: Recommendations for Daycare

We're hoping to start our daughter at The Growing Tree, at 5th and Manila, soon. We're heard good things about it from friends.

We toured the center and liked it. The kids seemed attached to their caregivers. They have a chef, nurse and two admins, as well as a director, in addition to the caregiviers. (We liked this so the caregivers don't end up cooking, answering phones, etc., and leaving the kids unattended). Seems like the have a good curriculum and nice facilities as well. We've run into two sets of parents in Hamilton Park and they seemed to like it a lot.

Take the hard drive out and take it to Best Buy. I took an old desktop to the location on 18th St., and they took it, no problems.

Here's there policy:

Re: Diaper service recommendations?

Thanks for the comments! My wife has been searching for JC diaper services and came to the same conclusion -- they just don't exist. We'll look into the fuzzibuns. I've heard stories about older cloth diapers (blow outs and rinsing in the toilet don't sound fun at all), so these sound promising. Thanks again.

Re: HUGE GAS LINE COMING? Companies look to run natural gas pipeline through Jersey City
#12
Newbie
Newbie


Here's another suggestion for an email message:

Dear Committee member,

I am writing to express my opposition to the Spectra Energy Natural Gas Pipeline.

I am a resident of Jersey City, and I am concerned that this pipeline will pose a threat to my neighborhood, as well as to the historical and financial hearts of the city. This pipeline is an explosion risk, as well as a source of pollution in an area the routinely fails the EPA criteria for air quality. Furthermore, there are no demonstrated benefits for Jersey City. This line is to service New York City and profit a private company, Spectra.

I urge your opposition to the current plan. If pipeline construction is necessary, I'd ask that you support re-routing the pipeline through nearby non-residential and non-commercial areas, such as the nearby industrial zones and ports. I believe the impact to human health will be decreased, and these areas will be less of a security risk.

Our management company, Red Bridge, got us cheaper rates for our premiums this year by shopping around. We had to switch companies though.

I've used Joseph Gove twice now, and would highly recommend him. He seems very honest and is responsive. My neighbor has also used him and had a good experience.

Re: Property Taxes will increase as Jersey City introduces $507 Million budget

The protest on Wednesday is a great idea. Hopefully the mayor and his "team" will realize people are watching, and not happy with his out-of-touch and unresponsive city government. Anyone tried to write the mayor (without a check in hand) and gotten a response?

See you outside city hall.

Can anyone recommend a good management company for a small condo building? I'm looking for one that's reasonably priced, responsive and transparent with expeditures.

The neighborhood is quiet and residential, except the traffic going up Monmouth and occasional traffic helicopters over the Holland tunnel approach. I live west of Hamilton Park and feel safe at all hours. The White Star and Hamilton Park Ale House are nice bars too.
