666 Jersey Ave is one of my favorites, of the houses I don't live in. I might want to have an exorcist on speed dial if I lived there but I'd call that a small price to pay. If the resident is on JC List, cheers!

This isn?t accurate. Jersey City has a scene and one that, to some, is better than LIC. You can certainly disagree, but saying the JC has no ?scene? is just not remotely accurate.

I just moved across the country and I miss writing this address, though sometimes I'd get lost halfway through and forget if I was writing the street, city or state...

LIC will be even more fab when the new light rail connects to Bklyn, who would have thought ? Long Island City would turn for the better.

You live in Greenville - the only scene you're familiar with is a crime scene.

It definitely has a strong arts scene, provided it's your cup of tea. As far as dining and other conveniences go, its main selling point is close proximity to Greenpoint and Astoria. That price tag is pretty high for what they're getting. Especially for a commute dependent on the occasionally fickle WTC PATH and the frequently problematic E train. The E always has issues in bad weather. I swear it's redirected over the F line at least once a week during my daily commute.

Gotta love how they increase their budget from $4,000/month to the low $5,000s, and their realtor immediately shows them an apartment listed at $6,295. The realtor could smell their stupidity from a mile away.

She's paying more in rent and taxes, and also a longer commute (which is not an easy one either).

I don't get that.

They wanted a luxury living and a city view, so these morons move to LIC giving her a 45 minute commute instead of a 5 minute one.

Funny. From a strictly selfish point of view, it keeps things affordable fo me. Then there is the NYS and the NYC income tax, boggles the mind that people voluntarily pay much more for the previlage of living east of Manhattan when you could live west of Manhattan and have a much shorter commute. Jersey City > LIC and day of the week.
