Yeah, i'd walk on plazas for sure, but I think there are many more empty sidewalks in JC than NYC - which i guess still doesn't make it right

Getting to this conversation late, but i admit i do cycle on sidewalks every now and then.

I stay on the road as much as I can, but there are always occasions when i'd rather get on the sidewalk, than get crushed between a truck and a double parked car.

On the sidewalk, i take it slow and i'm ready to break all the time. I go even slower (almost stopping) when i see other people on the sidewalk, especially older people or kids. I guess not everyone is as discerning though. : /

i am throwing out a cheap little tv table, so I called JCIA and they told me to put it out with the trash as long as it is one piece, which i did. It Wasn't picked up. I left it out for recycling last. It's still there.

So now i'm wondering what to do with it? i don't even have a car so can't really take it anywhere.

That's typically what happens when a main breaks.


my point being, when the mains break, usually the water appears gushing out of the ground, but last i heard nothing had been seen.

When you call up all these City Hall numbers, it's actually amazing to me how many people couldn't care less. Out of 7 people i talked to, only one seemed to actually want to try and help me get somewhere. She was shocked that someone had transferred my call to her.

I guess it's one of those situations where no one gives a crap until a random building collapses and then suddenly it's the most important thing.

Tried to call buildings dept at City Hall, which is across the street, and got transferred 6 or 7 times, ending up at some voicemail.

Ahh...city hall. so close, yet so far.

Shaking Building

I live on Montgomery near City Hall (Grove St). There is construction going on in the former parking lot on grove and columbus. Whatever it is they do every morning is shaking my 3 story building like crazy. This can't be all that safe especially after the amount of water this building took during sandy.

Who to call about;
1) The amount of shaking
2) The safety of the building needs to be assessed.

i live on Montgomery, between Marin and Grove, and PSEG were checking if the gas was on my building last night.

I live on montgomery, and i think from 1am to almost 4am, all i heard was the loud noise of their bikes going up and down. I was wondering what the hell was going on and seriously considered calling the non emergency number of the police. Its amazing how inconsiderate people can be. I wish i knew where they lived, so i could stand outside with something with a really loud engine.

Re: No heat in apartment for days - What are my rights as a tenant?

I guess what bothers me just as much is the unresponsiveness.

I think i'd be more tolerable if he actually replied to me and said, "i'm sorry, i know this is a problem, i am doing what i can...etc etc.."

Just knowing he was actually trying to do something, would be a little better.

Ah i see. Thanks for the info.

It is an ancient boiler that he has fixed 3 or 4 times since the beginning of November. Problem is he is not fixing the main problem (water dripping on the pilot light). He just puts in a new pilot light which is pointless because it just ends up like all the others . He knows this 'fix' will last a week at most, but it is cheaper for him, so that is all that matters, i guess.

For me, this cheap fixing means a few days here and there where i have no heat at all. Now that it is getting colder these 'no-heat' days are not pleasant at all.

Now it's day number 4, and he will not reply to me at all. Maybe in the hopes that i will buy a space-heater and stop trying to contact him.

The heat in my apartment has now been off for 3 days straight. Landlord says it will be fixed, but is shying away from actually giving me a date, and is doing the whole elusive thing.

I just wanted to check with those out there with more experience in this arena, what my rights are as a tenant with no heat.

Is it fair to 'ask' for a discount in rent for each day of no heat?

i have always lived in apartment buildings and understand communal living and the very high tolerance level of all things that goes with it, but this is so far out of my experience and am afraid the smell is going to start to become part of me. i really don't want that.

i am pretty sure i know there is nothing i can do about it aside from move, but i have been here a long time and love my apartment, landlord, and other neighbors. anything at all anyone can suggest to do to deal? to at least keep the smells from getting into my place and things and lingering on my clothes?

I've said this before and i don't mind saying it again, but Ibby's has really rude service. I HATE feeling like i'm doing them a favor by going there, so i don't. I'm not even saying i want service with a big fake smile, but just be responsive to my requests without rolling eyes, or standing there doing nothing when I just asked for something.

I wasn't even aware of Gypsy Grill, but now I'll try and find it. A little competition is the best thing that can happen to Ibby's.

Ladies, beware the shady character on a bike
#22

So after getting off the path train at about midnight, I walk back to my place along columbus, about 100 feet behind a girl who got off the same train. Between us, some dude on a bike appears to have stopped between two parks cars and is facing her direction. He doesn't see me and as the girl nears barrow intersection and makes a left, he pedals off towards her.

Well, as i get to barrow and columbus there is a van parked on the corner. This guy is literally hiding behind the van and peering around it at the same girl who is now almost rounding the corner making a right on to wayne. He sees me and i look at him and he kind of pretends to be doing nothing and rides off, as if to say.."just a guy enjoying a refreshing night ride"

I was actually about to walk in the direction of the girl just to maybe warn her, but saw a bunch of different people also walking home from the path along wayne, so thought it unnecessary.

At the risk of sounding like a paranoid old lady peering out her window, and reporting everything she sees, i wonder if i should have done more, or maybe i'm just over-reacting. hmm..interested to hear everyone's thoughts

And what's the deal with the piles of used clothes that mysteriously appear about once a week, on both sides of Barrow and Christopher Columbus intersection. It's like someone just decides to leave half their wardrobe on the corner of the street.

Anyone know where to look for Studio Space i could rent out in downtown? I don't need a huge space and could even share a $500 sq ft room with other artists.

Craigslist doesn't seem to have too much.

I,m just saying that I find people odd when they stare at you funny or stare at you without blinking an eye.First of all staring is rude.It,s one thing to glance at a person when you,re passing them on the street but to stare like that often makes you wonder what,s going through their minds.It just seems odd because I,m very down to earth.If I pass somebody on the street and we look at each other I,ll say Good Morning so it dosen,t seem so awkward. Also don,t get me started on these people with their cell phones. These people are not happy unless they,re on that cell phone 24/7. It,s become an addiction like drugs. Just yesterday I saw a woman on her phone while her dog was taking a crap and she was leaning over in such an unatural angle to allow him room to go while talking on the cell phone the entire time.Actually it was so funny I laughed.I could see cell phones for emergencies but these people make it their life blood. People did survive before cell phones,believe it or not.These people today are spoiled and become obsessed with it.


Fascinating...do tell us more.

I have been living in that block for almost a year and i gotta say, i have noticed some very shady characters looming around the shadows late at night. These aren't people from the neighborhood. Yesterday at about 2am there was a guy sitting on my stoop as i got home, who asked for change. Never seen him before, but he seemed nervous, and was constantly looking around as he enjoyed the comfort of my stairs.
I think the presence of the Rosina will help a little bit with the added human traffic and extra light.
