I was wondering what happened to that guy. Earlier he would walk the pig around Pershing Field.

I expect at some point seeing someone walk a Savannah cat. The F-1's cost $10k+

The art gallery becomes an office for a redevelopment company.

(A reference to what happened to the former Distillery art gallery on Hutton Street)

Yup, that's hard to wrap my head around. Makes the $7.50 for a bowl of roast pork, wonton noodle soup at 99 Ranch a bargain.

Palisade is getting strange. Hipster bars and fancy coffee but not one pizza joint from Newark ave to the city line. Still plenty of Spanish food.


What about Pizza Vita on Palisade?


When did that open?? It's not there in street view from 11/17. I'll have to check it out, thanks. I most often go to Marco's, but it's good to have another option.

You posted the most expensive infill house - a sample of 1 - in your initial example. I was surprised to find only the one house for rent around $10k. I look off and on and usually see one or more in the $11k-$14k range (Dixon). Maybe the rental market is retreating. I don't follow it anywhere close enough to really say.

Seems comparable


That's a sample of 1 on a site with few listings. If you use the tools to search Zillow for SFH in 07302 there's 20 hits. 2 are over $9k, by #4 you're down to $7500, by #8 it's down to $5750 and has been listed for 137 days!

what makes you think this is bubble-licious?some people paying #$10K a month for 3-4 bedroom in Manhattan might find this a very good deal.


7th & Monmouth ain't Manhattan by a longshot. Why don't you look and see what houses in HP or VVP are renting for and compare that to what this house would cost per month to own, even after dropping $370k in downpayment.
i realize jersey city is not manhattan but there are plenty of people from manhattan and brooklyn looking for better value in jersey city. there was a time not too long ago that $1,000 for a studio was considered absurd. now some are asking $2400.

I am hoping for Turning Point opening up a place here. Going to the one in Hoboken is a bitch.

Your new neighbor buys a Lexus and parks it in the middle of a double-spot to prevent the bumpers from getting the slightest scratch. (I've already got one of those...the neighbor I mean)

The obnoxious loud music from the neighbors is classic rock not salsa or rap.

You see window bars on the curb for pickup! (Today)

That funny smell from next door is the neighbor's industrial sized smoker.

I wonder what the land price point for that is. Clearly DT reached it some time ago, there hasn't been a BB built here in a long time. There's some price that the BB developers say "nope", even though they probably could still outbid a nicer project because their construction is so damn cheap.

... the rundown bar down the street, that used to have the alcoholics stumbling out of at noon time, is renovated into a hipster bar with live music.
