Of course the math has to work out for you and you have to stay in the general area....I'm just saying buying should be considered when you're losing 31,200 in rent a year at 2600/month.

Why so much hate against buyers?


no hate, but where is someone supposed to get 20k if they don't have it saved up already? they can't just live on the street for a year until they get the 20k for a down payment.

where are you going to get the 20% down payment on a 400k downtown condo? or 10%? or even 5%? just because someone can afford to pay $2600/mo doesn't mean they have piles of cash lying around

The article clearly states "cash and property". It could have been $100 cash, $500 watch and $400 phone for all we know.

The area is not particularly known as being a "hot" spot. It's close to Franklin/Palisade, which years ago was pretty bad with drug deals, although it's been toned down in recent years as far as I can tell.

My cousin lived in a similar complex in Lyndhurst, right by the Medieval Times. The complexes were brand new and had a ton of amenities, including a really nice pool / courtyard area, lounge, gym, etc.

The view there was of the surrounding swampland - not exactly Manhattan Skyline - but as far as I know, the development wasn't a failure. I think the West Side development has at least as much potential, if not more, since it's actually closer to NYC than the Lyndhurst one

I'm guessing your obvious avoidance of the point of my post is a sign that you are conceding the point - namely that the morality police of JC List (MPJC) was up in arms for no reason about the "bad image" that these two will propagate with their show in our righteous small town.

Re: Two men shot in Jersey City... What else is new?

This morning, students were shot and one was killed at a suburban high school in Ohio. Sure enough, when interviewed, local residents said "that sort of stuff doesn't happen here". The sad truth is that violence can occur anywhere, and I'd almost prefer the callous "What else is new" sentiment than the "this can not / should not happen here" view.

i'm sure the show will go on just fine without the stunning, world class locales known as LITM and skinners loft in their presence. I've been to funerals that had more liveliness than those places.

Jersey City clears 'Jersey Shore' spinoff

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Jersey City taxpayers won't be footing the bill for police assigned to security for the women of "Jersey Shore" and all the attention that comes with them.

New Jersey's second largest city has issued a permit to producers to film a spinoff of the reality series, featuring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. Filming is expected to begin later this month in the city's Grove Street Path neighborhood.

Police spokesman Edgar Martinez said Thursday the production company in charge of the show will pay for off-duty police officers to provide security and will pay for any additional officers if they are needed. In addition, he said, the production crew won't be taking parking spots from residents but will use pay lots.


hahaha i love this. it makes every single poster here seem like an uninformed, mouth breathing outsider neanderthal. go ahead, try and defend your positions now, all you faux jersey city insiders / BnR people.

There is a reason the Hoboken mayor denied them permits. It's because she knew the short term gain - boost in income in whatever restaurants they visit - will not outweigh the long term negative aspect of this...

maybe the fracas happened in the hallway outside the home (as opposed to inside the apartment itself).

also, keep in mind that "assault" does not have to be physical force. if the 3rd floor bf started making gestures or verbal threats towards the 4th floor residents, they could still be charged with assault.

Re: Stock Market: OWS has it right - You don't have a chance
#27
Home away from home
Home away from home


the original post was littered with inconsistencies, but i'll attack just a few of the basic ones

- the bid/ask spread is not nearly this high for the vast majority of stocks you'll ever buy. stocks maintain high liquidity (a very large number of people buying/selling at any given time). the only time you see large bid ask spreads are when there is an absence of liquidity

- companies just don't sell stocks with warrants like that all the time since it negatively impacts shareholders (especially the CEO and executives, who usually have large stock positions). they'll only do this if they really have to

- when athletes train, they hire trainers and nutrition experts to make sure they are stronger and faster than their opponents. some take illegal drugs to boost their performance even more.

this is similar to the finance industry; they hire the smartest grads, from prestigious colleges and MBA programs, and pay them large salaries so that they can have a competitive edge. sometimes, they engage in illicit activities (like insider trading), but most of what they do is legitimate. a big part of what they do is scouring the web and the newspapers looking for information that will impact stock prices TOMORROW, and acting on it TODAY in order to make a profit.

- finally, the original poster laments the fact that everyone doesn't have access to derivatives trading, swaps, etc. After watching the housing market collapse because people too stupid to be able to tie their shoes, let alone own a house, defaulted on their loans, do we REALLY want these people trading exotic derivatives? come on man

not downtown, but probably the coolest spot in JC is the Reservoir at Pershing Field in the Heights.

I think it is generally closed to the public, but there is a small gate near the corner of Summit Ave and Reservoir Ave that is unattended

Yeah the jitneys. I don't know of a website with the routes, but at night I believe they only run from NYC -> union city -> paterson. Late nights they line up outside on 42nd street between 8th and 9th aves.

During other times, you can catch them at Gate 51, and they cross the Lincoln Tunnel, go to Union City, then turn left and go down JFK Blvd and end at Journal Square. There are other routes as well that I'm not 100% sure of

The commuter vans run 24 hours from Port Authority to Union City (~32nd street and Bergenline). You can get off there and call a cab to go the rest of the way. One way fare for the commuter van is $2.50 I believe, plus whatever the cab from Union City to Jersey City would be (I'd guess around $20).

What I've done in the past is just park my car on Bergenline (free metered parking at night), then walk the block or so to the bus stop, take the commuter van into Manhattan, then take the commuter van back to Union City and just drive home.
