where are the RE values in the Heights? Are they still below what you paid for your place?

It's so hard to find comps. My neighbors place in my building - elevator, some units with parking, established condo - sold for just under his ask ($186,500 for a 700 s.f. loft studio); a larger unit on a higher floor went for less as a short sale. My place doesn't come up on Zillow.com anymore, Trulia.com has it finally over what I paid, but not by much. I think what makes getting comps hard is that the building stock in the vicinity is so varied there are newer 2-families going for $400K, HUGE lofts (2,000 s.f.), but lots of really shitty run down rentals, half-finished condos, and abandoned buildings, which must bring things down.

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.

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.

Refreshing to hear the truth from the heights.

minimum wage with a life threatening reality - these workers are left vulnerable - these fast food chains need to step up security as they are now and have been for a long time, the new soft target for robbery.

Scary and sad - 2nd attempted robbery at gunpoint in the Heights in just a few weeks.

Personally, I still don't feel the Heights is "changing", but this is something concerned citizens need to stay on top of. And our elected officials. Will Michael Yun pay attention to something other than parking meters in front of his store on Central Avenue, I wonder...

A man robbed a Burger King at gunpoint in Jersey City early Wednesday morning, but no one was injured, according to a police report.

At around 12:11 a.m. on Wednesday, a man with a small gun approached a Burger King employee who was taking out the garbage through the back door of the restaurant at 330 Central Ave., the report stated.
