Re: Parking Authority to change booting system, increase fines to $110
Home away from home
Home away from home


This is just INSANE.

It has happened to me twice already where I have gotten a boot on my car before the court date on my ticket. Basically forcing me to pay for the ticket without a chance to fight it in court.

Does any one know how to fight this? Or should I just call abc news and have them come back to JC this week?

Re: Who here really, really hates Comcast?

Comcast is crap. But so are most cable providers.
My internet goes down at least once a week, then I call them, talk to some idiot, they always have my information screwed up. For awhile my bills were going to the wrong address. I've ben on a "waiting list" for an HD box for months now. And they tell me that I just have to keep calling and hope that they have boxes in stock, and then I have to come down and pick one up...Great Service.

Companies like this know that they really have you by the b_lls, because the only other option is satTV. They can treat you like crap because you have no other choice in service...

Why wait until 2014? For less than 1/4 the price of a luxury condo in JC you can have your very own jetpack...

Re: www.kannekt.com not posting bad reviews
Home away from home
Home away from home


There are a couple of sites just like Kannekt that I think we have thoroughly trashed in past posts on this site.

Sites like Kannekt are run by scumbag RE guys, who actually believe that it is a good marketing strategy. But in fact it's one of the lowest, unethical ways of promotion. And sites like this exist in almost evey industry.

They try and call it renegade marketing.
It's becoming a major problem in the advertising community, where certain companies have sprung up that actually specialize in creating sites and campaigns simliar to Kannekt. It's HUGE in the technology sector. And most REAL advertising agencies HATE this "Form" of promotion as it is so unethical.

It just goes to show, you can't trust anything you read online, unless it's from a source that you know is validated and credible and even those sites...(ahem, cnet) are taking kickbacks from companies to make sure their products get good reviews.

Re: Looking for advice - Webster & Hutton
Home away from home

Hey, always good to have more friendly people looking into JC.
The area you are looking at isn't the best area in JC, but it isn't the worst. The commute in NY is a little more of a pain. The downtown area is quite easy. From what you said you disliked about BK, you probably aren't going to want to spend much time in hoboken, unless you like pretending you are still in college. As far as crime goes...It's an issue anywhere around NY, no matter what neighborhood you are in. Yeah, some are worse than others, but if you are really concerned with crime, Montclair's probably a nice place to live...lol. Even if you live in a good neighborhood in JC, crime is an issue. It's not as bad as it was years ago, but you still have to be aware when walking around at night.

BINKY...

LOL.

Thanks for posting that video. That's one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. It's so messed up though, these kids are out of their minds..

I love how original that dude thinks he is...Wait a rapper, with a crappy beatbox, and a clothing line. What a pioneer!

Besides the fact of these coward wannbe thugs beating up on old people. Besides the juvenille crime in JC, The fact that these kids were beating people up on film to post on youtube just illustrates an even bigger psychological problem with teenagers today. Another case in the news, though not as harmfull, but still alarming, is that jackass in FLA who started a scene at the jonn kerry discussion. He instigated his own arrest just to get it on film and make a name for himself. Why are kids doing things like this? Why are kids so obsessed with being famous that they will go through these lengths to get attention?

Would those kids in JC have attacked those people if there was no youtube or livevideo?

I went there on Saturday, didn't try the food, but the bar service was great. The interior is nothing out of the ordinary, which to me is a good thing. I'm getting sick of bars with transparent gimmicks. I think this place is going to be a great addition to the grove st. area.

I don't know what it is about Jersey City, but it's seems like none of these kids ever fight 1 on 1. Neighboring cities have always know this.

I guess it's hard for them to fight fair when they are tripping over their t shirts...

Re: Locals snap up Jersey City condos
Home away from home
Home away from home


I hate how realestate punks try to use this site, and others for PR/ad purposses. Who came up with those numbers? Oh, the company trying to sell more units...It's a load of BS.

I'm pretty sure that if you took the Jersey City census, and looked at the average household income of Jersey City residents you will see that very, VERY few can afford these LUXURY condos.

500k for a 600sq. ft. studio on Newark ave. PLEASE!
THAT IS NOT FOR THE AVG JERSEY CITY RESIDENT!

I honestly don't even understand what will pull people to move out of NYC?? Its not like they will save money moving to JC, the prices are the same as NY...

Im still waiting for a billboard in JC to read "affordable housing"

These realestate snakes have lost their minds...

Re: Ward F: Richardson opposes low-income housing - No "more projects for poor people bunched together."
Home away from home
Home away from home


WOW. What is going on in this city....

It's ok to build 20 new luxury condo complexes where studio apartments START at 450k. But someone wants to build housing for the poor and people start to bitch about it..

Are You Kidding me???

Now, I agree, the way our National Government handles lower income families isn't working properly, and not to mention how it forgets middle income families. The entire system need to be reworked as "You cannot permanently help a man by doing for him what he could and should do for himself"

But the housing situation in JC is getting OUT OF CONTROL. Countless families and businesses are getting priced out of their homes, and are forced to move farther away from their jobs. Take a look at the back pages of a metro newspaper and try to find one new housing complex that doesn't have the word LUXURY attached to it....

Ask anyone who works for the nypd or fdny, where you have to live a certain distance from your job...These guys can't afford to live in the areas they are paid to protect...

I am all for the "American Right to Free Business" but the greed involved with the realestate market in this area makes me want to puke.

Re: NYC crackdown on noise -- Jersey City's new ordinance goes into effect July 17

I doubt this will effect the "thriving" JC nightlife... Bars and clubs aren't allowed to have live music or dancing anyways. A noise ordinance isn't killing much...

It might help with the punk ass kids blasting jack in the box music at 3am on a tuesday night.

Re: Downtown Jersey City Watch-Updates Thread
Home away from home

Simple advice. It's JC, don't
leave anything in you car. Period. Even if your car is
cluttered with stuff you don't think is important,
people will assume you have things of value stashed in
it, or you forgot to take out.

Car alarms are annoying, but they help, even if you
just have a simple blinking light on your dash. It
will deter people from breaking in.

Also, I know it looks, like a "Young kid" thing to do,
but tinted windows, aren't a bad idea. Then people
can't see inside your car. People won't risk breaking
into a car, if they can't see anything worth stealing.
Rain guards help too. On most late model cars, or cars
with frameless windows, theives just use a
screwdriver to pry the window open slightly and stick
a metal hangar in to unlock the door. If you have
plastic guards on the windows, this becomes a much
harder task.

Re: motorcycle parking
Home away from home
Home away from home


Well, I have a motorscooter in JC and basically no one knows how to handle it. The dmv has a hard time classifying scooters in general, and calling the JCPA will just frustrate you and waste your time. Parking your scooter on the street without a permit is no problem, as long as you move it for street cleaning. Sometimes i park mine on a wide sidewalk, outside my house. But im just lucky that i haven't had a problem yet.

Having a scooter is a huge pain in the ass b.c laws for them are so dated, and honestly, dmv officials just don't know how to handle them. They try and force you to get a motorcycle liscense, but then won't let you ride it on a highway, so how do you get the bike to rahway (the nearest motorcycle roadtest facility) to take the test?

I've posted about these issues before, so i'll spare everyone. Jersey DOES have potential, but it's up to us...the people who live here and take pride in our community to make it so.

I saw things going wrong in JC, and joined the JCNW. Jersey city can be a safer, better place. Go to meetings, and get active !
