Re: $120,000 to rent space for police brass in Journal Square

Seems like a good deal to me. They save $150,000 in operating costs, add $300,000 in property taxes to the rolls, a one time influx of $1.9M for the sale of the property. That's a net annual gain of $430k.

Well, it depends on what cross streets you're talking about, but if you are east of West Side Ave, then that's a pretty nice area. I know people who live between JFK & Bergen and really enjoy it.

You've done a great job with the restaurant, Brian. Thank you for bringing some original and delicious eats to JC. Adding beers on tap just ensures that I'll continue to come in regularly!

So, can I order the fried chicken off-menu anytime?

Re: Harrison Ave (260-270)

Ignore the snarky and unhelpful responses. Somebody had a bad day.

I live in that neighborhood and can tell you it's probably above average for Jersey City. No, it's not the same as the nicer areas of downtown, but Harrison, Bentley and Gifford are all well above average, especially between West Side Ave and Kennedy Blvd. There are some very bad areas just blocks away, but you quickly learn where to avoid.

The building itself looks nice from the outside. It's your standard prewar type building. Check out the arial views on Google Maps or something like that if you really want to know how the building is shaped. I can't speak to the condo association.

If you're going to live in Jersey City, the key things to consider are what your commute will look like, what sort of transportation options you need and how much you can spend. I think this building is worth looking at if you're coming to see properties.

Welcome to the neighborhood! Since you've obviously already picked a place to move into, don't worry about wishing you'd picked another location. Every neighborhood has parts that are better or worse.

I'd say you're in a good spot - not dangerous compared to many other areas in town. We live on Harrison near JFK and there are a lot of people in our area who are active in the block association. Just try to meet your neighbors and keep an eye out for suspicious activity.

Not to mention the fact that it costs more to administer the death penalty than to keep a prisoner behind bars for life.

I'm not sure what businesses would be killed by this that aren't already killed by the Target downtown and stores in Newport Mall. It would just save me the drive to Clifton (Costco) or Harrison (Walmart).

JCPD won't bother because they are above that. It's a parking authority job. Another reason that it should be returned to public control and merged with JCPD.

Email your councilman. I also recommend contacting Steve Fulop - he is a great resource to help with this sort of request.

Re: Cleaning Service

We use Spotless Planet and they don't have a problem with our dog & cat, although I usually take the dog to Boca's Play n Stay so he doesn't get in their way. Judy used to own Spotless Planet, but last year transferred the business to Piedad - one of her long-time employees. Overall, they do a pretty good job and the price is reasonable.

We used Regina's Maids and cut them after the first visit. Low quality and high prices in our experience.

The best house cleaner I've ever had was Sharon from Freaky Clean, but she and her business partner split and I lost her number. Sharon, if you're out there and still cleaning in Jersey City, track me down! Freaky Clean wasn't just a brand - it's how my house looked when she was done! :)

No power lost around Lincoln Park. We were coming home last night on 1&9, and there was a LOT of standing water at 440 and Communipaw. Nice and sunny morning, though!

Thugs or not, that is a bit disturbing.

Obviously, if you keep large amounts of cash in your home, you PROBABLY shouldn't let other people know you do.

Re: 07306 or 07304

I would also add that you can't generalize about a zip code here, as the vibe varies with each block. We live close to Lincoln Park, and my wife takes the 99s bus in to Midtown each day. The express bus along JFK is great, but it will obviously take longer than from the heights. Her ride is 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic.

If you look in 07304, I would say to stay east of West Side, west of Bergen and north of Communipaw. St. Aloyisus is a popular Catholic school right off the park, but I'm not from this area nor do I have kids yet, so I can't really provide any feedback there.

Best bet is to look in both zip codes and see what the neighborhoods seem like to you. As long as you're within a block of JFK, you'll have good commuting options.

Re: Is it good decision to rent apt at "Gloria Robinson Court" located at 348 Duncan Avenue Jersey City
#15

I live near the intersection of Harrison & Kennedy, and the previous posts are probably right about that area. If you can afford an apartment between Westside and Bergen to the West/East and Belmont and Harrison to the North/South you'd be in a better neighborhood. The neighborhoods in this area change rapidly form block to block, but we've never had any safety issue and we've been there for over 3 years.

Rule of thumb for me would be to stay north of Communipaw and between Bergen and Westside. If you're in this area, you're going to want to take the bus or walk to the PATH - the light rail is always in a bad area....

Plenty of legal reasons to be out at that hour. I walk my dog after we get back from going out, which means it's often past 2am.

Re: Solar panels in Jersey City--has anyone gone through the process with the city?

Don't worry about it. State law prohibits municipalities from passing laws that regulate or prevent the installation of solar on your building. There is no approval process required.

The Solar Center should know all about this and can answer your questions. I used to sell solar through the Home Depot, and they handle ALL permitting and inspections with installation.

Re: PSE&G Supply Energy Question
#18
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


JCSHEP is right. Choosing renewable energy sources for your PSE&G power is a great way to help drive towards renewable energy.

Xerxes points out the reality, too, that PSE&G keeps raising our power costs. We've seen double digit increases every year for the past several years, and if cap & trade goes into effect, you'll likely see another 50% increase in about a year as the utility companies have to pay for their carbon output.

The only way to avoid this is to invest in another power source. If you go solar, NJ rebates & the Federal tax credit drop the price by about 50%. You will also earn SRECs or "green tags" which you sell back to the power companies.

If you're interested in more info, check out the database for state incentives for renewables at http://www.dsireusa.org/incentives/in ... spv=0&st=0&srp=1&state=NJ.

I also go through all these programs in detail at my upcoming free solar seminar. Everyone is welcome to attend. More info here: http://bit.ly/17RtrV

If you go solar, not only will you be making money by getting free electricity, you'll also be earning Solar Renewable Energy Certificates from the state which will more than cover the cost of financing the solar system.

Here is an announcement for a free solar seminar I'm giving at the Home Depot on Route 440 in Jersey City on Wednesday, September 23 @ 7PM. http://newjersey.craigslist.org/hss/1369200774.html

Come on out!

I'm with Lefty. We've been there maybe 4 times and it was great once, pretty good once and so-so the other times. Too expensive for me to roll the dice on whether I'll have a great meal or mediocre.
