Re: Rental Repairs

The burner ignites and stays lit, but we can smell the gas during and after cooking. It seems as though there is excess gas that can not be burned off? Or maybe another burner is leaking the gas when that burner is on? We avoid using that burner, but it is the only one that is strong enough to provide a high heat (to boil, etc) so it's very inconvenient. There is no smell when the other burners are used or when the stovetop is off.

Rental Repairs
#2
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


We live downtown and pay accordingly. We sublet a condo in a luxury building. Since move in we have needed several repairs, many that were broken when we moved in, and some that occurred while we were here. All of these have been wear and tear repairs and it seems as though the unit has been poorly taken care of.

We are currently without a dishwasher or dryer for 2 and 3 weeks. One bathroom needs the shower head replaced and the other bathroom needs the sink faucet replaced since April and January. One burner on the stove leaks gas when it is on (not when off).

Landlord insists we be present for service calls and then the estimate be forwarded to him. This drags out the repair and is frustrating for us since we need to make arrangements to be home quite often.

Are these repairs considered necessary for living under NJ law? If so can we withhold rent until they are fixed? Can he really require us to be home for repairs and not himself (the dishwasher has been looked at 4 times by repairman)?

I'm just curious as to why the Mandalay building put up a gate between the boardwalk and themselves? It blocks access ton2nd street. Not a problem for me but I can see how some peoples commute will be effected. Anyone know what caused the change?

We just used Byron Hutchinson also and I was very happy with the work he did. He came the same day and fixed the problem in a little over an hour (had to remove the toilet to get a toy out). His price was very reasonable, cleaned up after he was done and explained all the work and charges before actually doing the work. He was friendly and personable - would use him again and recommend to others.

Re: Downtown activities for babies?

There are lots of things! A Sound Start has music classes and I think baby yoga (at least they used to), The little gym, yoga shunya has mommy and baby classes (these are for mom, unlike Sound Start which is for baby), but the life saver for me at that age was JC Mom's Meetup which has a ton of scheduled play dates/tummy time for kids from 0-6 years.

like.

I was walking downtown and was scared for a few seconds. Why on earth would it make sense to blare sirens during a period of national silence?

And where did it come from? I have never heard such a loud noise in my life..

Re: Typical rent increase

We lived in a large apartment building in Paulus Hook and they wanted to raise our rent about 13%. We left and rented a row house in the same neighborhood for around the same price. In my experience, private landlords are much more reasonable then management companies.

Re: Swimming for dogs?

Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I think that water is pretty gross and wouldn't let my dog swim there. I also don't let him off leash even though he is "well behaved". My toddler recently got jumped on and knocked down by an off leash dog while the owners simply shrugged and said "he just wanted to say "hi". This wasn't even at MCP - it was on a sidewalk on Washington St.

It's unsafe for a dog to be off leash and when I see it, especially on sidewalks or along the waterfront, I can't help but think how ignorant the owners are.

My daughter (2.5) took classes with Claudia, owner of Baby Grand Studio. She holds her classes (won't start again until September) in the grassroots community space on Coles (and 3rd I think). She loved it, and I did too. We're definitely going back in September.

There also seem to be some other adult age classes held there by various teachers:

Dog Walker?
#14
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi All,

I'm hoping to find out the contact info for a dog walker I see around Paulus Hook frequently (She also said she used to be a supervisor at Boca's play n stay when they first opened). Hopefully she will see this message or someone else can forward me her info. We would love to see if she can walk/visit with our dog while we're away for the day. She's very sweet and friendly with brown hair.

Thanks!
Megan

Thanks! It's nice to know what kind of bird that is. My daughter is too young for that book, but I'll keep it in mind for when she's older!

Myself, daughter and later some friends saw an aquatic bird that swims near the marina in Paulus Hook - he was all black with a long beak. He would swim underwater for at least 20 - 30 seconds (I think to get away from us).

Re: Candy Store

I went there today with my 2 year old - they were super nice and very accommodating (even watched my stroller outside while we shopped (without asking)). We will definitely support them (I just don't want to buy candy from them every week or my kid will be spoiled - I saw they had balloons in the back though, so that's another option.)

Rent a space with a kitchen?
#18
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a place that I can rent hourly that has a oven (fridge and use of other appliances would be great too!) If you own, or know of, a restaurant that is normally closed during off peak hours or certain days of the week and are interested in renting out your space, please let me know! The space would be used for a cooking class once a week for about 90 minutes.

Thanks!

I think a bakery/bagel place would be awesome. I wonder if the rent will be too high though...

Thanks for clearing up the mystery!

What happened to Green Cow?

Curious to know what happened to this place. I saw the owner of Mirch Masala talking with the cops several days ago outside (it was closed despite it being afternoon). I assumed they had been robbed or some accident had happened. I walked by the other day and now the restaurant seems to be closed for good and gutted.

MorrisCanal Park -- for dogs or kids?
#21
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I never thought much of Morris Canal Park before I had a kid. Now I see it as a much needed, nearby and grassy retreat for my ever curious toddler. I do, however, find myself grossed out by poop and pee and scared by dogs off their leash.

Let me note that I am absolutely a dog lover and realize that dogs need parks too. I think that dog owners must be equally frustrated by curious kids and having to leash their dog (those that do).

I could go to VVP, but the same argument could be made for the dogs. So my questions is - who is Morris Canal for? Dogs or kids? Does anyone want to see changes made (i.e. a dog run) so everyone can happily (and safely) use it?
