We've been using New Model Cleaners on Kennedy, off of Bleecker St. for a few years. Reliable and good.

Not sure if it's close enough to you though.

jcboyz, what is it that you want me to learn from your post? it says nothing about where the attackers were from, for all we know they could be from hoboken or elsewhere!

jcboyz, you do realize that there's already an elevator connecting the heights to hoboken, right? the developer agreed to build the steps and is not holding up his end of the bargain. why shouldn't they be held accountable?

this was obviously done by someone who knew he had a safe and probably even knew the code. how does a safe bolted to the floor get stolen anyway?

Re: Problems with Neighbors

Not too shy to talk


I've seen kids as young as 10 or 12 and teens that look like they're 16 or 17. There are also young adults in their 20's and a few in their 30's! I have no idea who really lives there, who's visiting or what's going on. They're just all over the place, loud, dirty and the music is on all the time.

It's a legal 2 family, that much I know, but the basement is also being used as an apartment. I don't think there's anything illegal going on like drugs, but all those people living there is definitely not legal.

Thanks all...

I know it's illegal, but I guess I'm just feeling guilty about reporting them because there are lots of young kids there. I really need to stop because they're annoying and you're right, it's a fire hazard, anything can happen.

The woman who owns that house has always been really difficult to deal with, but I will give her a call and see what she has to say.

Problems with Neighbors
#8
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


My next door neighbor moved to Florida and is renting out her two family home. It hasn't been a problem, however, about three months ago, I started noticing that more and more people were moving in.
It seems like there are 20 people living in that house and they come in and out constantly. They blast their music and have been hanging out in front of my house, working on their car and leaving all sorts of garbage on the ground.
In the last two weeks alone, there's been broken glass and trash all over the place.
Calling my neighbor about this is useless because she just wants her place rented out; she doesn't really care who's in there as long as she's able to pay her mortgage.

Seems like the majority of people living there are teens, but that could just be because they're the ones constantly hanging out. Should I call and report them? Part of me feels really guilty because my goal isn't to make them homeless, but on the otherhand, I don't want to live in a place that's constantly littered!

What would you do?

We have a fire pit and a chiminea in our backyard and last I checked, they're legal. I think they can't be placed too close to your home/building, but other than that, you're good. Our fire pit uses propane and the chiminea, well, it helps burn all the branches that fall from the huge tree in our yard! Very much worth it.

Liberty House has a bar in the back area with couches and a fire pit, it's pretty nice. I don't know of any rooftop bars in the heights, but down the hill, into Hoboken, there's City Bistro...

We passed by a couple of weekends ago. They're looking for artists in the heights for their next showing. The space is really nice and a great addition to the neighborhood.

Definitely worth checking it out.

I think this place is the reason Charritos went out of business. 5 De Mayo is way more authentic and the food is great. Too bad, I liked eating in Charritos though.

Re: How did you come to live in Jersey City?

Not too shy to talk


I grew up in NJ, but was living in Inwood and working downtown. I ran into a friend who was a real estate agent who talked me into buying a two family house in the heights. I was 24 then, not so concerned about the kinds of things I would be looking at now if I was buying. But, 10 years later, I've been able to invest a lot into it and I absolutely love my place.

I'd like to see more restaurants though and would also like Pershing Field to fix up the tennis courts and track!

And fyi, I mentioned safety earlier so just want to let you know a little about the way they run. I don't think they're regulated so they're kind of just all over the place. Sometimes drivers in the morning compete for riders so they'll go really slow or really fast, really depends. They also sometimes stop at places other than bus stops to pick people up, which can create issues on the blvd with the other cars.

Police have been cracking down on them lately so I've noticed that they're only stopping at the bus stops and aren't letting people off just anywhere.

For the most part, they're safe and efficient, however, once in a while, you might get a loony. Welcome to the world of jitneys, if you decide to take them, they're a daily part of my life now.

Re: Bleecker Street?

I only know the schedule because I've been using the jitneys for a very long time, but have never looked it up anywhere.

I believe they're called Community Lines. There are jitneys every few seconds running to Journal Square and Port Authority during AM and PM rush hour. They run maybe every 5 minutes during normal hours on the weekends. You can catch them at the regular bus stop, there is one on each side of the blvd on Bleeker so you won't have to walk much.

You'll be able to catch the jitney to Journal Square very early in the morning, the earliest I've every taken it is 6:00am. It will leave you directly inside Journal Square and costs $1.50. I believe they stop running at 9 or 9:30pm from Journal Square so you'll have to take a cab home.

The jitney to Port Authority: There's the 51 or 56, both will take you inside Port Authority's terminal, gates 51 or 56. You can purchase a ticket inside Port Authority, by all the ticket booths, it's the one that says Community Lines. Tickets are $2.00 each. If you don't purchase the ticket in advance, you'll have to pay $2.50 each way.

There's the 7th Ave. Jitney that takes you to 7th Avenue and 40th Street. There's also the Kennedy Blvd Jitney that will take you towards North Bergen so do not take that one if you're going into New York City. They all have signs so just make sure you're in one of the NY ones or just ask the driver before you get on.

These also run constantly. When you're coming home from the city, there's never a wait, there are several jitneys waiting at the gate, you might just have to wait till it gets filled up. The last one out of Port Authority every day is 1am by gate 51.

I might get slammed by other posters on this one, but I've probably only used a bus once or twice since I've been living in the heights. The second i walk onto the corner, there's a jitney passing by to take me to journal square or port authority. They're cheaper and much faster, though I know some people worry about their safety. Either way, congratuations!

I live on South and like the area a lot. I work in the city and sometimes come home late at night, never a problem. It's true that there's not much going on at night in terms of bars, but there are plenty of restaurants on Central, the light rail is about a 15 minute walk from where you would be and journal square is only 5-10 minute ride away.

Go for it.

My husband and I bought in the Heights almost 10 years ago and I've seen a positive change since then. I have a great commute into the city, can walk to Hoboken and parks and have lots of restaurants to choose from on Central.

We don't have children yet so I can't really comment on whether the Heights would be a good move for you, but otherwise, it's not a bad place to live. Crime is everywhere.

Thanks for the post! The prices were great, but I think it's best to go when it first opens. We got there around noon and were told that a lot of the "better" items had already been sold.
Still, we got lots of gifts and lots of things for our place.

Re: Wave of gentrification that leapfrogged the Hudson has reached new heights - Jersey City Heights
#26

Not too shy to talk


I live in the heights, work in NYC. my commute is 30 minutes on most days. We live in a huge apartment in a two family house and have been renovating it since we purchased it. our backyard has a patio, fire pit and hammock. yes, our place has vinyl siding and it'll stay that way till we're totally happy with the way the inside looks.

It works for us and we would not be able to find this downtown. We'd be confined to a much smaller condo that may have a balcony, but I'm betting we'd be paying a lot more money to have that tiny outdoor space.
We can walk to restaurants on Central, walk to the light rail, walk to a public pool, etc....

Living here makes sense to us. We're not interested in throwing our money away.

If you like Rasoi's food, they have a catering/banquet hall near Piscataway, NJ, called Rasoi III. They have a pretty big room overlooking a large, outdoor garden area. I believe it can accomodate 250 people, but not sure about that.
