Re: Property Manager recommendations

Whatever you do don't go with Corner Property Management. Our friends live downtown and their building has seen a rapid decline since they starting "managing" the building. I heard that they are unresponsive, dismissive and also very very expensive.

Byron used to be my plumber but after two bad jobs that he never came back to fix, I have to switch. Does anyone have a plumber recommendation other than Byron?

(To be fair to Byron, he responds quickly, price is fair)



I've used Byron twice. His price seemed a little high on one job and he left a big mess. He's also got an ego bigger than the State of NJ, and I didn't really need or want the attitude (I'm a highly-mechanical guy but the job was a little too big for me to handle by myself or I would have). He brought the wrong part after I SPECIFICALLY told him what was needed so he had to run back to Bayonne to his supplier. Meaning a 1 hour job took 3 hours.

I've used Charles Mello several times in the past. Nice old guy, old school, and knows his stuff. Also reasonable on the price.

I don't think Charles Mello is still in business.

There are laws which prevent contractors from gouging during a natural disaster. He should have been reported.

You are a very good person to take the trouble to find the dog's owners. Most people would just call animal control and then the story wouldn't have turned out as well as it did. People like you help to remind others that there are wonderful people living amongst us.

Report: With nearly 16k users, Jersey City has second most Ashley Madison accounts in NJ

With 15,823 users, Jersey City has the second most registered Ashley Madison accounts in New Jersey, according to Cinnaminson Patch.


By John Heinis/Hudson County View

Jersey City makes the list behind only Newark, which has 26,965 registered users, according to an analysis of New Jersey accounts registered with the website – which promotes “discreet” intimate encounters for married men and woman.

The registration information of thousands of users was released by a group of hackers called “The Impact Team” last month, prompting Avid Life Media – the Toronto-based firm that owns Ashley Madison (as well as other dating sites such as Cougar Life and Established Men) – to offer a $5,000 reward to capture the person(s) involved with the hack (h/t The Washington Times).

Based on the data compiled in the Patch report, here is a breakdown of Hudson County’s Ashley Madison users:

Hudson County Ashley Madison Users

1. Jersey City – 15,823 (2nd overall)



2. Hoboken – 6,164 (12th overall)



3. Bayonne – 3,428 (27th overall)



4. North Bergen – 2,966 (35th overall)



5. West New York – 2,470 (45h overall)



6. Kearny – 2,129 (55th overall)



7. Secaucus – 1,506 (78th overall)

New question, what traditional ethnic foods do the TJ's and WF's in edgewater sell that you can't get here? I'm always down for trying something I may not have tried before.

OK then. What, exactly, do you need?

Hoboken doesn't have a Whole Foods, or Trader Joe's, or Target, or Staples, or Home Depot.

Hoboken isn't sitting right next to a suburban-style mall.

You do realize that many new residential buildings that are built in DTJC do, in fact, have ground floor retail?

You do know that over the years, Hoboken has built numerous residential towers and complexes, without adding retail?

Does Hoboken actually have more retail per capita than DTJC?

DTJC has a similar variety of retail establishments as Hoboken -- restaurants, groceries, clothing stores, bookstores, bike shop, etc -- and given how badly brick & mortar shops are getting slaughtered these days, that's not too shabby.

ShopRite is a typical NJ supermarket. Key Foods is smaller but still has a pretty good variety of foods, including fresh veggies and fruit. There's a bunch of smaller groceries, including La Conga. What, exactly, are these shops missing that you find so distressing?


What are you jumping on the attack wagon for? I said I was going to Edgewater. It's too bad people are "stumped as to what you would need to go there for." I was going for some "oddball" ethnic food that I was raised on which I can't get in either JC or Hoboken. I don't find anything to be "distressing". I know where to go to find my "oddball" ethnic food since it can't be found in JC. Thank you both for missing the point of what I was saying.

LOL @ you corybraiterman.
"are you one of those suckers that buys organic everything? do you detest all the poor minority people that go to shoprite?

REALLY? To answer some of your ridiculous questions:
#1. I do not buy everything organic
#2. What minorities are you referring to that go to shoprite? ( I go to shoprite as well; perhaps that simply annoys you since, for all you know I could be one of the minorities YOU detest?) Every time you point out a falsehood about someone else, it says something about what your real motives are.

All I was saying is we need more choices.
All you are saying is what you always say...and it's never good or positive or uplifting. You like to attack people for having different points of view.
I want more choices for everyone.

For me, one of the biggest problems in JC is that it is definitely lacking in stores and amenities. I had to go to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in Edgewater Saturday. While driving there, I am always amazed that we are so close in proximity to Hoboken where there are SO many places to shop, dine, drink and play. All we do in Jersey City is to continue to build high-rise apartments without providing new stores to accommodate all the new residents. It's damn annoying that I have to go elsewhere to shop because Shop-rite is not big enough for all of Jersey City. The city should be offering tax incentives to attract businesses which would enhance this city. I think every new building that gets approved should provide retail space on the first floor. (end of rant).

There is something so wrong about Krispie Cream Christie. He put the kibosh on the deal because he thought NJ would end up footing too much of the tab? Doesn't that loud mouth bully know how to negotiate a deal?
When Hurricane Sandy hit NJ, it was Christie who was the real disaster.
He has made a mess of NJ and now wants to become President? Sigh.

Instead of always wishing for Whole Foods, Finest, or Trader Joe's to come to Jersey City, I think a foot bridge from Jersey City to Manhattan is better idea.

Re: What Jersey City Restaurant Do You Miss the Most?

I miss the "It's Greek To Me" restaurant that came to Jersey City and was the first ever "It's Greek To Me" that failed. What JC got was a wise-ass guy who thought he knew better than all the other successful "It's Greek To Me" restaurants. It was the only one that went belly up because he didn't follow the IGTM protocol which was to always use fresh and delicious ingredients. What a huge disappointment that was. I know the guy still has another business in JC so I'd like to say, "Hey thanks for being such a big disappointment; you still suck".

- being responsible for one's own actions?

It's absolutely OUTRAGEOUS that this happened. It makes me so angry to even imagine that people are too busy playing games or texting on their phones to even notice that someone got stabbed.

I do not buy into the notion that this was caused by any equipment failure.

There is a breakdown in humanity going on but nobody is paying attention. We are being conditioned to look the other way and have become weak.

As for the idiots that say we should kick ISIS's ass... I think we should withdraw our troops from any conflict overseas and position them on all of our borders.
