I am not sure where I stand on the issue but in the past year I have seen many European tourists families in places that you would previously not have expected like throughout the heights and around JSQ.

Not sure if this was random but having spent many thousands of hours at all times of day/night running, fishing, birding, playing softball, playing with kids, etc in the park this is unsettling. Hopefully whoever did this is caught quickly.

Re: Springsteen’s son could land firefighter gig in Jersey City

I had always thought there was a requirement to live in Jersey City to be a fireman. According to this city website there is:
https://www.jerseycitynj.gov/cityhall/publicsafety/Fire/recruitment

I don't know if you have to be a resident prior to applying and if so for how long? I recall a bunch of firemen sharing the address of a room above a bar so that they could claim a JC address.

Re: Cash out refinance of investment property?

Thanks for the tip. I spoke with someone yesterday and they do the cash-out refinance for an LLC with very competitive rates compared to the other banks I have talked to. It may be a good option for me!

Cash out refinance of investment property?
#5
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I am looking into doing a cash-out refinance for a residential investment property that is owned by an LLC. I have talked to a few banks that do this but wonder if anyone recommends a particular bank for this? There is definitely no consistency among the banks for these loans when the property is owned by an LLC.

Thanks for any insight.

Is this property cursed? Will anything ever happen there? I remember when the previous structures were finally demolished in like 2005 thinking that something would finally be built.

1st two days of PS 26 are in the books. My son is in Pre-K 4 and daughter is in Pre-K 3 and the Pre-K classrooms are on one side of the building (with its own playground & entrance) and the kindergarten - 5th grade is on other side of school.

Not too much to go on but so far I get a positive vibe. Next week starts before/after care so we will get back to the routine of me dropping off on way to JSQ around 7:30 and my wife will pick up around 5:30 on way home from her office.

I heard that the downtown PJ Ryan's is closing but the JSQ one is staying and potentially a new one opening somewhere else on the west side of city.

I believe it was before 3/1 because students at pre-K 3 get a letter allowing to enroll this week/next.

I will follow up on my post as I know a little more than last year. My son (now 4 in Jan.) and daughter (2 1/2) started going to Little Smiles in August 2017. My son is in the Pre-K 3 and daughter is in the daycare. My son's cost for school hours (8:30 to 2:30 I think) is covered by the city (there are 2 pre-K3 classrooms) but I drop them both off at 7:30 and my wife picks them up at 5:30.

There was a little bit of a transition for a few months for my son as he asked about his Paramus school and friends. As of now they both seem to be doing fine and are happy when they go/return from school.

As it only goes until Pre-K 3 we have had to look at options for Sept. 2018. Not knowing much about charter schools we went to a fair in the fall. I kind of liked the sound of Jersey City Global Charter further up in the heights but I think they start at kindergarten for now. We also signed up for LCCS lottery and did not make it.

We are zoned for PS 26 (the new school by the reservoir off Summit Ave). I have talked with a few parents at the playground whose children attend PS 26 and they seemed happy with the school/principal/teachers. I registered both my son and daughter yesterday in PK3/PK4 yesterday and got a positive feeling of the place. We will attend an open house they have in beginning of March. I know school is new but has anyone else have an experience with the school? FYI, we also visited St.Nick’s and seemed like a good place and could serve as a second option.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Re: New Polish Food Shop on Hutton Avenue

I didn't know the name but google says it is:
Jola Polish Deli
Address: 110 Hutton St, Jersey City, NJ 07307, USA
Hours: Closed ? Opens 9 a.m. Wed.
Phone: +1 201-388-1635

It is like 2 doors down from Ozu Foods (one of my other favorite places).

As of now all of the soups/pierogis/stews etc are sold to be heated up at home. For very reasonable prices you can have just about a full meal within a few minutes of turning on the stove (my kind of "cooking"). They also do have some breads/pastries - I had a poppy seed roll similar to what my Slovak grandmother used to make.

This place is great! I have had several variations of their pierogis/soups/stews and all were good meals to take home/heat up. They have tons of Polish snacks and kielbasas as well.

Does anyone know what % of the first Journal Square tower is rented out?

I wonder when some interesting retail & restaurants will come to the blocks right around JSQ. The cynical side of me says "never" and the block from the PATH station to Tonnelle will always be exactly as it is now. The glass half full version of me says "be patient, it will happen."

I took a walk around this evening and noticed this and several other new places in the Heights. Froth on Franklin looks like a coffee shop coming just down the block from The Heights Cafe, The Cliff over on Congress St and something is coming to the old Goerhing bakery on Central.

Re: Gardeners in Jersey City, I have questions...

I start cherry/plum tomatoes and basil from seed in paper cups in my window at my office at work in mid March. In the end of March I start kale directly seeded in the ground (maybe earlier this year). In early May I will bring tomato seedlings home (people always look on the PATH train as if I have marijuana plants. After a few or so of bringing them outside by day/inside at night I will put in ground in middle of May.

Around the same time I thin out the kale and soon after they get big. From about Memorial Day through early December I make kale smoothies a few days/week. From end of July through late Sept/early Oct I have tomato salads, tomato basil soup/etc.

I have tried other things but in small space I get the most bang for the buck with kale/tomatoes/basil.

School options in the heights...

Just can't stay away


I live on Beach St in the heights with my wife, son (just turned 3 last week) and daughter (almost 18 months). Currently, my kids go to a daycare in Paramus right near my wife's office. We like this place and have the option of sending them there through kindergarten.

We are now starting to look at pre-school/elementary school/after care options in JC. We heard that PS 25 was a decent place but found out today that Beach St actually goes to PS 31 on JFK closer to JSQ. Any thoughts on this school?

We have heard about the pre k 3 at Concordia and about several days of waiting on line for a spot and will have to look at the logistics of this.

What about the private day cares that offer pre k?

Does anybody have any ideas, suggestions , experience etc on this topic?

Our family gets most of our groceries from Stop and Shop with Peadpod deliveries. We used to go to Stop and Shop on Central Ave but getting it delivered saves time and they often come after kids are in bed.

Wow, this Dulce de Leche is really game changer for me that is going to raise the bar in the Heights.. I don't want to raise expectations for anyone who has not tried it yet but quality is an A, ambiance is an A, and prices are way less than places of similar quality. I had a sausage sandwich on fresh bread with some kind of delicious sauce with fries for like 6.99. I shared an egg sandwich on a croissant, some type of spinach mini quiche, a few empanadas and was very pleased.
I just may have to gain 20 lbs this winter!

I can't believe I missed that Dulce de Leche bakery opened on Central. I walked by at closing time last night and it looks beautiful. Their first one is way up in North Bergen and the 2 times I went it was packed and everything I tried was delicious. I may have to walk over for breakfast in a few hours!

I noticed a vacant store front a year or so ago in handsome brick building at Liberty and St Paul's. Not sure what had been there previously (there used to be a bar around there that closed about 15 years ago but I think was another spot) with a nice big window and corner location it felt like something should be there. I noticed some work happening there this year and finally figured out what is happening - some type of eatery:

I just took an evening stroll through the heights and saw a Japanese place is opening on Central. A few of the existing restaurants had decent crowds so maybe a restaurant row is in the works. The new Noches de Columbia was packed all the way around at 930 as well as most times I have walked by and when I got food there Sunday at 4pm.

I took off from work today and was walking around and noticed a gelato place is opening next to Pizza Masters (not sure if same owners as Pizza Masters). It also looks like the Wonder Bagels should not be far off from opening (and people were working on the apartments above WB). It could be a handsome brick building so nice to see it going from vacant blight to something useful.

I noticed on Saturday that the PJ Ryan's in JSQ was open - not sure if it was a soft opening but there were definitely a few people at the bar. Also, I noticed several tables of people at the new Noodle Fan yesterday.
