Re: 50 NJ High Schools with best SAT scores -- McNair at #20

Depending on when that happened you are talking about 3% of the total admissions for that class at max. I don't mean to be mean, but having a parochial education was considered to be inferior by many children I attended academic with with some exceptions. Those schools are some of the few schools that continue to exist today because they provided a high quality education. The accelerated public schools had many more children accepted into academic mostly because they performed well in testing and came from stronger families. Now some of the stronger performing charter schools like LCCS have many children accepted as well for mostly the same reasons.

The former principal of a downtown Catholic school always had at least 3 students from a graduating population of 25 students make it to Academic, while the local public school never had any children go. One year, I just cannot recall, there was an article where these students came from. It was overwhelming from the Catholic schools even though they were a fraction of the school population.

What the hell are you talking about almost every school on the list has a highly competitive selection process similar to Academic or you have to live in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in NJ which by itself is automatic cut off.

Its possible the getting the flu vaccine saved his life, with zero immunity he could have been hit even harder very difficult to say but this flu has killed teenagers and young adults.

Re: New Tax Rate is Insane!

Its crazy to think that 20-30 years of amazing growth in downtown that the taxes were subsidized by the poorest neighborhoods of Jersey City, many of them paying higher taxes on properties worth a fraction of downtown properties for a very long time.

Even one year doesn't even come close to making up the gap of the free ride many (not all) downtown folks have enjoyed. But this is a double edged sword and hopefully will encourage Jersey City to follow the law and not delay tax revals for the outrageous amount of time it has.

I mostly worry for the life long residents. Some of them my friends that in no way would possibly be able to pay these increases and have to hope the programs available help them.

Does EZ Pass have any type of enforcement like the one Brewster mentioned that anyone knows of? Just curious if something like that has ever been implemented.

Re: New owner/landlord isn't cashing rent checks

Just as others have mentioned, this board is full of of anti-rent control property owner's in downtown that resent the laws that have made turning a profit more difficult.

Don't let people on here scare you, you have received the proper advice. Huddle up with your neighbors and hire one lawyer to handle the tenant case for you. Prepare for a lot of discomfort. These new owners will do the following:
Try to get you removed for non-payment. Put the money in a separate account, if you receive a court notice cancel those previous rent checks and be ready the day of court to pay the entire amount of unpaid rent and bring keep copies of everything! Any communication, any documentation, cancelled checks, they want you to make any mistake. A single mistake can lead to eviction.

They will try to make your living situation hell. Non-repairs, some will actually try to make your living situation dangerous. With winter approaching be prepared for them to shut off heat to the building, maybe even conveniently you will lose power or hot water. You and all other tenants need to aggressively report these situation to the housing department. Contact your ward councilperson and get them let them what is happening. http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/citycouncil.aspx

Report the issues to everyone with ears and even reach out to local news media with documentation.

Despite popular belief on here, you are just leveraging existing law to enjoy a sustainable lifestyle. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

If they don't have the parking spots specifically zoned I would call parking authority and see what can be done about it.

You can also try reporting the issue to Jersey City Connect App (SeeClickFix)

That block is becoming a real winning location for good new food and old in the heights.

Sabroso, dulce de leche bakery, ginos pizza, la concha, are all solid establishments - I will check this place out. I also recommend noodle fan a couple blocks up by north street.

I constantly see the police blaring away to get cars away from there, and writing tickets to those that don't move. They turn the corner and three new cars roll up. At least they attempt to do something there.

Yeah whenever anyone says oh the newcomers to jersey city don't have cars I just point in that direction 2 buildings has brought at least a hundred cars all parked illegal some blocking a two lane street. It's not fair to see it completely ignored. But I never want to hear about how they don't bring cars to new developments ever again.

This is a serious topic. Has anyone ever went to sign up for anything at the office at Caven Point?

Olala is actually really good - just long delivery times downtown and ordering over the phone can be a real pain. Worth the wait though the food is very good and the empanadas are worth waiting ten minute for.

It honestly scares me every single time I meet someone in downtown here more than 2+ years that has never actually been outside of downtown. Most don't even know where Grand St is or that Newark doesn't end when it goes up the hill. It honestly aggravates me that many will go on to buy property in the surrounding areas and claim they are "improving" the area without actually every knowing what it was like before it became "vanilla" enough for them to walk around with their heads in the asses.

Yes poverty exists in this city. Gun violence, crime, drugs - everywhere. But, this is not indicative of the entire population that lives outside of the downtown bubble. People all of over this city need help. Some good recommendations here to get started.

While you are joking around, someone actually had a heart attack in the plaza and the ambulance couldn't get to them on Thursday. Still funny?
