Good luck, and I hope you find a neighborhood you can call home! I hear what you are saying, but since I bought in the Heights (in '08) moving is not an option... I take it you lived west of Summit and south of Manhattan? There are some beautiful homes on Sherman Place, but unless you are right on Ogden near Riverview Park, the Heights can seem like its going nowhere. I'm hoping the efforts by the Riverview Neighborhood Association and the Riverview arts project - farmers market, new coffee shop on Palisade, a concert venue at the "lumberyard" on Palisade create a new vibe for at least part of the Heights. If I didn't orient myself towards the Riverview scene and access to/from Hoboken, I would find nothing in the Heights to like either.


I lived downtown for quite about 5 years after living on Bergen ave JSQ for a year. I loved Downtown, but had to move when I got laid off in '09 and couldn't find a good paying job for two years. I saw that neighborhood change so fast!

I do go to that farmers market you are talking about, and yes I am happy Mod cup finally have a shop, they do brew a good cup. I have a feeling though that even there they have teens at night causing mischief. Heights architecture is pleasing like some old houses off central, even on Carlton ave (I live off Carlton).

I am moving out of the country, another met area, but less populated, less polluted, less of living on top of each other, better weather.

I really tried to like the Heights, but between teenagers constantly hanging out in hoards smoking weed at Perishing field, shady individuals wandering up and down central, rude ladies on the street, I am so happy I am moving. Cheap rent wasn't worth 1 mile trek from the station to a neighborhood where I feel uncomfortable walking to a store at night ( I have to cross the Perishing Field park and never felt safe with groups of teens roaming the park).

Central avenue business district is pathetic. All it got going is old school italian food and central avenue liquors across the perishing field. Not a single decent store to shop at unless you want to buy some hoochie cheap clothing or old food, no coffee shops, no cafes (even a bagel shop!), nothing, just 99c stores. People are rude too. I hope it gets better someday, but judging on how JSQ remained the same as long as I have been here, I doubt it will happen anytime soon.

I came to the States from Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan) and Honey Bakery's specialties like Lamb samosa (all other kinds are blasphemy in those parts and probably only on their menu to appeal to American tastes), lagman, chak chak, really took me back home. Lagman is really just like what i remember back home with homemade noodles and the right flavor. I couldn't find lagman like that even down at brighton. It would be awesome if they could make shashlyk as well, but the owner told me they couldn't have it on the menu because neighbors complain about wood fired grill. Then of course carrot salad and plov is a must as well. Kind of wish they stuck to being a bit more authentic, but I understand they are trying to appeal to American taste. Still was a little disappointing not to be able to get a pot of tea to share, which is a staple in those countries.

There's no cure for stupidity or willful ignorance.

My roommate is from Mass and he pays $80 bucks a month and makes twice as me (well, what I used to make).

I am on unemployment and my COBRA coverage is a whooping $178!

The way it works in Mass is if you make below $35,000, you pay zip, and and then a tiered system is applied. All you have to do is apply, so a person like me would be covered and wouldn't have to go through welfare runaround.

This is especially helpful for young professionals and entry level people, not just those lazy welfare sucker you think this is designed to benefit.

Should a person who supports even one another on $35,000, and pays 1/3 in taxes, really have to decide whether to go on welfare to make ends meet?

My landlady has been giving me a hard time for 5 years.
I would appreciate any input...I had no heat for a week in Nov.. called Housing bureau. She wouldn't discount my rent.

I have asked where my money for security has been for 5 years! (interested bearing account?)

I live in the basement in a bedroom with no windows, I figure I have given her over 70K in rent.

She is threatening me with using my security for her legal fees?

I have personally improved the property value. I have turned a junk yard into an amazing herb, vegetable, and flower garden's.

Any Advice?????

Best advice I can give - move out. Give your notice but don't ask for your deposit. Just take a lot of photos to prove you left the apartment in the state you moved in. Wait 30+ days, then hit the landlord for double your original deposit - most are lazy idiots that don't return your deposit within the time mandated by NJ law - 30 days. If they don't return it or the balance within 30 days - they owe you double.....


http://www.rentlaw.com/dep/njreturndeposit.htm

------------------------------------------------------------------
From the website....................

New Jersey Court and your New Jersey Security deposit
If after 30 days the landlord has not returned your security deposit, you can file a complaint against the landlord in Small Claims Court in the county your unit was in.

The Rent Security Deposit Act states that if the court finds that a landlord wrongfully refused to return all or part of a tenant's security deposit, the court must order the landlord to pay the tenant double the amount of the security deposit if it is not returned at all, or double the amount that the landlord wrongfully deducted from the deposit.

When you file your Small Claims Court complaint, make sure you ask for double the amount of the deposit. If you go to Small Claims Court, also write on the complaint the words ?together with interest and costs of the suit.

You might just get the interest and the money that it cost you to file the complaint.

If you hired an attorney, the court should also award you reasonable attorney's fees


YES! but first WRITE LETTERS they are a help in court case if you have to go ( I had to get my Double - court fees deposit took me 6 mo). Also call Housing Inspector might be a good idea.

Great that you can train your dog to do that, but again those bones don't belong on the street in the first place. Let the dog take it out of the garbage, so the owners are forced to train them the usual way, learning from having to clean up the garbage.

I am not am dog owner ( I would never have an apartment dog. ) But I have been around dogs all my life, trained and not trained...and most dogs are not as well trained as they should be and those bones pose a hazard.

One morning a few years back, I was walking out of what is now "Made with Love" with a cup of coffee and Yorkie on a leash. I had my full involvement in getting that sweet sweet caffeine, before I realized why the damn Yorkie stopped at one spot (right behind the stoop at Jersey and Christopher Columbus) for too long. He was wolfing down a piece of fried chicken/bone. I freak out, drop my cup of coffee, and while disgusted try to pry something out of this little garbage-eaters mouth. Of course he never gave it back and swallowed that whole piece (bone and all), I am amazed he didn't choke! That would have sucked, cause I don't know how to give a doggie Heimlich maneuver.

The cheese we enjoyed the first day of the year was to die for: Spanish manchego, Italian bosina, roaring forties blue, goat gouda, cave aged cheddar, and French Compte...It was quite a plate.

They did apologize, but where's the offer for a free soda or something, especially for new business. And the music sucked. And the door kept opening letting the cold air in and it would not close if you did not shut it behind you, which many a rude and inconsiderate people do. And they need one or two more tables. To me, it's too cold to eat inside unless they fix that door.

I wouldn't be surprised if JCPD is looking the other way for a "fee" - it Hudson County, remember.


Maybe bringing it up with Garden State Towing Association will yield some results.

I've often thought that if a few friends and I were bored enough, it would be fun to mess with the towing guys for an afternoon. Park the car in the BJ's lot, start walking toward the mall, turn around and run back to the car the second you step out of the parking lot, rinse and repeat. Use multiple cars to keep them on their toes.

Also, if it is really "illegal to tow a vehicle 'without having been specifically requested to tow such vehicle by the owner of the property", then this whole towing business is illegal, unless the is tower actually calls someone in the store every time they're about to tow someone, and even then the practice runs counter to the spirit of the law.



I used to work for a towing company, and they only towed cars under contract ONLY when the owner of the property/business called. What these companies are doing is predatory towing, and that is illegal. They want cash so it will not be recorded and followed up.


I'd call the police too if I saw my car getting towed.

Meh, although at a seemingly good price for the immediate Downtown/Grove St area, the Ducky's & Dumpling just was sad...I was disappointed to see none of the dumplings were cooked in front of me.

I've gotten $1 dumplings in Chinatown that were fresh and were fried in front of me. I almost wanted to leave and go to Grand Sichuan for something fresher.

Another review is soon to follow; the prices are by far too attractive to bypass this place for a delivery.

This kind of stuff happens all the time at alternative schools. If you don't know what an alternative school is, refrain from quoting.

500 kids is probably about half of the school, if not less, so I am positive there are kids in this school who are there to learn and achieve, you know, ones who are not in gangs and do sports and try to be successful.

This was gang related before race, gangs could be organized by race, but gangsters pride themselves by gang affiliation first and race second.

There are just too many bad kids at that school who need to be locked up and sent to alternative school because they have major behavioral and attitude issues.

I blame the school for letting this kids into classrooms.

I thought the same thing Tash, every time I see it I'm like WTF what if it was 3, 4 or 5 friends, who gets to pick who gets in trouble and who is cleared from the law. It's a good PSA though.


The ones who get cleared are the ones who didn't drink of course! The best I can conclude, at a underage drinking party the cops will ticket everyone else except up to 3 people. I believe this is what it is implying (otherwise, why put it on the announcement, so people ask WTF?)
