Re: Legal advice needed

In Grove Pointe I don't know of any airbnb units, but our building management fully sanctions Furnished Quarters. As residents move out, more and more units are going to Furnished Quarters. And they are also allowing much shorter stays now. At first it was mostly longer term corporate rentals.
Now we're getting lots of vacationers which is especially "fun" for us during the pool season. As the original poster stated; it's not desirable for us long term residents to make the switch to hotel living.

Furnished Quarters below lists the units they have in JC.

Interesting. The exact same thing is happening at Grove Pointe. I agree - it greatly changes the standard of living.
Good luck to you.

Re: commuting to Morristown

Thanks.
Unfortunately there is no way the train will work. It looks like it's just under 2 hrs from my front door to the train station in Morristown, then I still have to figure out how to make the last 2 miles, some of which doesn't look walkable (busy streets/no sidewalk).

I'll need to find a vanpool/carpool to make this work.

I'll try the link to the Hudson County TMA that someone recommended. I also noticed some vans on the turnpike yesterday:

Looks interesting.

$85/day for 4 days a week for 2-3 months.
Not exactly economical.

commuting to Morristown
#5
Newbie
Newbie


I need to commute to Morristown from downtown Jersey City for 4 days a week for a few months starting in mid-July. I do not own a car, but I do have a driver's license.
Options with NJ Transit really stink. I'd need to either:

Path or light rail to hoboken
train to secaucus
train to morristown
then somehow get the 1.5 miles from the train station to work
Even without the local bus or walk at the end, that's almost 2 hrs each way

Or get to the Port Authority in NY, where it would take 2 buses to get me to the train station in Morristown.

Does anyone know of any vanpool or carpool info? Or bus service other than NJ transit that will get me out there? I don't want to have to buy a car just to have to deal with this commute for a few months.
I'm currently trying to buy a home, so I can't add the debt at this time.
If I could find someone driving out there I could ride with and contribute to gas/tolls that would be great.
My hrs are 8-4, but I could probably rearrange a bit.

Thanks for any advice

I'm with you. My first thought was sympathy for the young man and his family.

My 2nd thought, very quickly was, "Wow, I'm glad he drove towards the river instead of towards Grand Street where he could have killed many innocent people."

Our culture is way too lawsuit-happy.

If a drunk driver plows down a group on a sidewalk, it's a tragedy for the pedestrians and we're out calling for the driver's head on a stake.

If a drunk driver speeds through a parking lot and in to the water, we're suddenly sympathetic for the driver?

Why is the driver in scenario one wrong and the driver in scenario two unfortunate?

If "filling my self-esteem" includes being happy this guy didn't take out any innocent lives in his cloud of misjudgment, than yes, my self-esteem meter is at an all time high.

Thanks Annod. That is much clearer than the PATHTWEET and the pathalert I got via email. Below is the email PATH alert, which is obviously incorrect..it directs 33rd St bound people to get on the WTC train.

**************
Beginning 11PM Friday 7/15 to 11PM Saturday 7/16, the JSQ-33{Via Hoboken} line terminates at Grove Street due to track work. Transfer to Newark-WTC at Grove Street to complete trip.

Um, yeah, Read the posting from the Port Authority again. It tells people going from JSQ->33rd to transfer at Grove St to the WTC train. So I don't know how people riding the train to WTC will get to 33rd unless they do one of those bizarre loops I've seen before. This will obviously affect the WTC line as well.

What the heck does this mean?? It makes no sense. Why can't the PATH clarify these postings? How is the WTC line going to get people to 33rd st, and how is this going to affect the schedule of the NWK-WTC line?

Based on past experience, it looks like the NWK-> WTC line will go Nwk->WTC-> Pavonia -> Hob -> then along the 33rd St line? I've seem this before, and it means massive delays.


uh... it makes perfect sense? If you're on the 33rd train going to jersey and want to get to journal sq, you get off at grove and wait for the newark train.

unless i'm COMPLETELY misreading something, that's it.

Expiration dates on the cards piss me off, too.

Of course they do not advertise this, but if you take an expired card to a station attendant, they will move the balance to a new card for you. As long as it hasn't expired more than a year ago. It takes less than a minute as long as there is no line.

Re: Zeppelin Hall Beer Garden - Opening Night
#12

A big negative for me is that there is not a non-smoking area outside. I went on Friday and Saturday. Inside on Friday, it was hot and stuffy, and the place is so cavernous that it is really loud. It was pleasant outside, but impossible to get away from the cigarette and cigar smoke. The outside area is big enough that they should designate a non-smoking area.

I didn't try any food.

The beer selection is great. Most (maybe all?) of the beers are $5 for a 1/2 liter, $10 for a liter, and $15 for a pitcher. We had a pitcher - it filled 3 of the 1/2 liter mugs, with maybe a couple of ounces to spare. Valuewise, there's not much incentive for getting the liter or pitcher, though it did look like fun to drink from one of those giant glasses.
The beer glasses are all very nice and heavy. We found it funny that the pitcher was a cheapo plastic one with the Bud Lite logo on it.

Friday night they were playing some hard rock inside, but not too loud. On Saturday there was no music. There was no music outside either day.
