Re: anyone know where I can buy a custom size foam mattress?

The name of the place on New York Ave is Bond Bedding. It's on the corner of New York and Hutton. The owners name is Burt Gitlin. He's very personable. I know he makes custom mattresses but only spring mattresses. He does sell to individuals but you will either have to pick it up or pay for shipping.

If it's close to the lightrail elevator then Ogden would be the better choice for commuting into NYC. Fairmount to Journal Square would be a bus ride (or an 8 block walk) away.

Special Delivery: UPS Driver Finds, Returns $5,200

Home away from home


RANDOLPH, N.J. (1010 WINS/AP) -- A UPS driver's unscheduled delivery has made one man very grateful.

John Piontkowski spotted a bank bag in the middle of the road Wednesday while he was making deliveries in Randolph.

Inside, he found $5,200 and a Bank of America deposit slip showing the money came from Stuyvesant Liquors in Jersey City.

The driver took the money to the bank. He tells the Daily Record of Morristown that he never considered keeping the cash.

Store owner Don Knaus says he and his wife were busy running errands that morning and lost track of the money, which somehow landed in the road near their home.

As they searched, their bank called to say the money had been found.

The driver says the store owner gave him "a very nice reward."

Nice break for a good guy!

Funeral set for Jersey City stabbing victim
By Melissa Hayes/The Jersey Journal
December 10, 2009, 3:46PM

A 27-year-old Jersey City woman who was brutally stabbed Tuesday will be laid to rest Monday.

Police continue to investigate the murder of Jacqueline Reyes in her family's ninth floor Paulus Hook Towers apartment on Montgomery Street. Theft is believed to be the motivation.

Her 9-month-old son was seriously injured in the attack and remains in critical condition at The University Hospital in Newark.

Viewings are scheduled for Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at Introcaso-Angelo Funeral Home at 143 Brunswick St. in Jersey City.

A funeral mass will be Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Bridget's Church at the intersection of Brunswick and Montgomery Streets in Jersey City.

Two years ago, woman nearly killed in building
Thursday, December 10, 2009
The murder of Jacqueline Reyes and the stabbing of her 9-month-old son is the second brutal attack to take place at Paulus Hook Towers within two years.

In January 2008, Glorious Martinez Correa, then 43, was nearly killed during an assault by a man with a metal rod. The masked attacker dragged her into a stairwell and beat her, fracturing her skull and eye socket.

Four hours later, a cleaning crew stepped off the elevator on Correa's floor and followed the trail of blood and found her. Some of the assault was captured on security video, but no one has ever been charged in the case.

Police do not think there is a connection between Tuesday's murder/stabbing and the attack on Correa, who survived her ordeal.

Anyone with information about the attack on Correa is asked to call the Jersey City police tip line at (201) 547-JAIL.

Thanks Christine, that means a lot.

I don't dream Councilman Fulop to be anything and I don't dream any single individual anything more than human. This is why I fight my own battles and work as hard as I do for my community. There are a lot more community activists out there and we all have the choice to support the initiatives and issues that we feel are a priority rather than stick behind one individual. I think you will find Councilman Fulop in full agreement with this philosophy as well. Think for yourself and do for yourself. An elected official voting as a true representative of her/his area does not need to fool people or keep them silent and apathetic... make them believe in them. S/he needs their constituents to be active, aware, and free thinking.

Only time will tell if people will care enough to vote their conscience and elect representatives that vote in the best interests of the people.

On your point about the current directors not knowing the policy, there is only one director, Mary Spinello. Until about 7 months ago she sat on the Council arguing for a better booting and parking policy. So I doubt very much that she some how erased her memory of the ordinances. I would be very happy to set up a personal meeting between you and her though if you really think she doesn't know the policy.

However, I think what you are saying is that even those in higher positions within the JCPA don't know their own policy. On this I would not be surprised. Many people who park on the Hoboken border get ticketed by JCPA. So some don't even know where JC ends.

It is ashame that the JCPA is an autonomous agency.


Althea,

There are actually three directors as well as numerous assistant directors. That's part of the problem. They have to have the revenues to justify all of the salaries of these "So called Directors" so they illegally boot vehicles when in fact the vehicle only deserves the $42.00 ticket that'is in the original ordinance. When you speak with one of them, they pretend like they don't know what you're talking about.

In the case of my neighborhood, once I started reading the ordinance number to them over the phone, they misteriously stopped booting vehicles on my block.

Your best gauge is to have your realtor show you recent sales on comparable sized units. What happened 2 years ago is doesn't matter.

And THEN you wait for the right train and THEN you walk a couple blocks through the station to the PATH platform and. If you live on Ogden around Bowers or Griffith plan an extra half hour to 45 minutes before you are on the PATH platform.


Bullcrap! I've made it from my house (New York Ave) to 23rd street path station street level in 25 minutes flat (best time) and it's never longer than 35 minutes unless there's a major delay on the Path.

And really, 45 minutes to get from Ogden to the path station? Come on, it's 2 stops on the lightrail from 9th street to Newport station and takes no longer than 5 minutes riding time. I do it all of the time.

It (heights walking distance to 9th st elevator) may not be as convenient as living 1 block from Exchange, Grove, Or Newport, but it is more convenient than many other parts of Downtown or Hoboken.

Vigilante,

Let's not assume that school kids are the actors in this incident. I don't know what different school districts are sent to McNair for summer classes, but what I can say is that they aren't students of McNair, otherwise they wouldn't be in summer school.

Also, if you have crime data to support your claim of past incidents of burglaries by McNair students, Please post them. Otherwise don't blame innocent students from one of the top rated schools in the country unless you can back up your claim.

I witnessed someone die in that parking lot from a gunshot to the head back when it was Shoprite, but that was 25 years ago.

I saw this happen at several voting places in the original election. Corrupt JC politics at it's best. Certainly not surprising and actually expected.

Try calling Aart in America piano services. I know he specializes tuning and technical services, but he will surely be able to put you in touch with a good mover.

Van Reypen and Academy is most definitely considered Journal Square.

My question is why would a young woman consider walking home at 4:00 am? Not very smart. Lucky for her she walked away only being mugged.

Yet another violent crime in downtown. It just goes to show that JC is JC and that it doesn't matter where you live in this city. The JC lifers already know this. That is if there are any of us left!!!

Re: I need some serious advice regarding my rental situation
Home away from home
Home away from home


From what you're describing it sounds like he is attempting a condo conversion and ran out of money. A landlord would have no reason for gut-renovating each apartment if he weren't planning on converting.

Do you know if he obtained the proper permits to renovate the upstairs apt? If he didn't, then you would have that to hold over his head to get him to finish the renovation. Although, it wouldn't make for great landlord/tenant relations.

If he is in fact planning on converting, I doubt he has any intention of giving you a written lease.

Maybe you should make him an offer on your unit and see what he says. If he jumps at the offer, then you at least know what his intentions are for the property.

Good Luck.

Re: how dangerous is the heights?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I can think of many other sections of JC that are much less safe than the heights. I've lived in JC all of my life and the heights is no more or less safe than many sections of downtown. I grew up in Journal Square and can tell you that parts of it are much worse than the heights. I don't think you can even group certain sections of the heights together.

I live on New York Ave near the Congress St Light Rail and find the neighborhood to be reasonably safe. You have to use your head no matter where you live if you plan on living in the city.

I would definitely drive around at night to get a better idea of what heighborhood looks like.

I don't know why I'm seeing repeated posts regarding "muggings" on the light rail elevator. There was 1 mugging on the JC side of the Congress St light rail elevator in the 2 years that I've lived here and it happened at 2am on a Sunday morning.

If posters are going to be sighting crimes in the "plural tense" they should attach the news article they're referring to .

The video is not new, it happened about 3- 4 years ago during the Cunningham or Smith administration. This was near 111 First st.. The cops involved were severely disciplined. They were transfered, demoted, and/or suspended.


It definitely wasn't Tommy Smith. He left office in "81"

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


This area of the Heights is definitely on the upswing, but as with any area in this city, you have to always be aware of your surroundings.

I haven't heard of a particular story of someone being mugged by the elevator but where you are looking is much closer to the 2nd St lightrail station. Walk east on Franklin Street 3 blocks. You will see a winding road when you get to Franklin and Ogden, the bottom of the road is the 2nd St station.

There are many condo conversions in progress on Webster & New York, so I think that the neigborhood will only get better.

Good Luck!

Re: Jewett Ave.

Home away from home


I would thoroughly investigate the neighborhood before proceeding. I know that Jewett between Bergen & Kennedy is a notorious drug spot. I grew up in JC and a general rule of thumb was always to stay away from anything east of Kennedy Blvd. Maybe things have changed as many things have in JC.

I would sugggest driving around the neighborhood around the time you would normally go to bed. The nighttime activity should give you a good idea of how safe the area is.

Good Luck.

Re: Plumber?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I could not disagree more as far as Flood Watch not being a ripoff. We had them do work in our condo building and their prices were quite high.

I also called them in to take a look at a leaking faucet in my bathroom sink. He took a crescent wrench, tightened the lead to the valve and told me, "that will be $150.00". Idon't know about you, but I classify that as a ripoff.

I had a company called Recommended Plumbing replace a thermocouple on my hot water heater for $120.00 and he came less than an hour. I don't have their number, but I think the guy that came was Eddie.
