Contractor forsidewalk Gate/Door

Just can't stay away


I'm looking for a contractor that can remove and install a new sidewalk gate (the metal hatch that leads down to a basement). Can anyone recommend a local contractor that they've worked with?

Contractor for trash removal/snow etc

I tried a search of previous threads but mostly came up with full management companies. I'm looking for a reliable contractor that can handle regular trash removal, hallway cleaning, and snow shoveling for a 5 unit building. Any suggestions?

When I search my apartment, it has a (somewhat) accurate measure of square footage in the upper right corner of the screen.

Re: 5th Floor Walkup
#7
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I don't think the OP was necessarily asking about buying vs renting, but whether it was a big mistake to buy a 5th floor walkup.

If that's what they're getting at, I own and lived in a 5th floor walkup for 13 years and can say the following:

1) the steps aren't for everyone, but after a while, you don't notice them any more (for me they were my only exercise)

2) it's nice not having anyone walk around on top of your apartment (I'm assuming you'd be the top floor)

3) you typically get more light on the upper floors than the lower ones

4) in the summer, it can be hotter - especially in older buildings that aren't as well insulated. (the opposite is also true in the winter, you get the benefit of your neighbor's heat rising).

I think it's a reasonable statement that there will be fewer people who want to buy a 5th floor walkup than a 2nd or 3rd floor apartment, but I don't think it's a fatal flaw. I moved out of my apartment two years ago and haven't had any problem finding potential tenants.

Further, I think one of the posters below made a good point about not thinking of your home as financial investment. If you're a reasonable person, and you are happy living there, it's reasonable to think that other people will be happy with it too.

Good luck with your new home

Because 12 years ago I answered a "missed connection" personal ad in the back of the Jersey Journal and it led me to a beautiful brownstone on a tree lined street near Hamilton Park.... Since then my captor has kept me chained to a basement radiator like the gimp from Pulp Fiction.

Not sure. Most blogs refer to it as cornmeal, but I couldn't say.

Looking forward to picking up a slice of the bayou beast

As a traditionalist; probably.... but their pizza is still delicious. They're not your typical parlor slice, they use a lot of corn-meal on the crust, and their sauce is a little spicy.

I am very happy about having them in the neighborhood.

This is a shame to hear and hope it really was some sort of misunderstanding that got repeated several times.

I also hope it's not a sign of some larger problem because I like their food, in particular their stuffed vegetables. I have no idea how they make zucchini, peppers, and rice taste that good.

Sure the mall's an eyesore/psychological barrier but I never really minded it because in the winter/rain it makes half my walk to the PATH station covered. In the good weather I generally walk to the Grove Street Station as it's about the same distance from my apartment.

I went by on Sunday for lunch. Ordered a cheese burger medium and while it wasn't the best burger I've had in downtown (My favorite is the white star) it was pretty damn good.

Good: they char the burger pretty well, the outside of the patty was nice and crunchy while the inside was still juicy. They also cooked it medium like I ordered it. Their fries weren't crispy, but I ate them all and was pretty happy with them. Service was also great.

Bad: the burger is too small for the bun and the meat is kinda bland. Not bad mind you, just could use a better mix maybe? (I don't know what to suggest exactly, maybe fattier meat or some other cut)

Either way, I like what they've done with the place and will go back to try their other stuff. I'm happy to see someone trying to deliver quality, I hope they do well.

I think there's a location in Hoboken on Hudson and 13th (more or less). Maybe you could drop them off there, it's at least worth a call before heading out to union city.

It is, because I was wrong.

He was cleaning out a 4" (I think) main line for $130 and then did the smaller patio drain for $65.

Sorry for the misinformation, I should have checked the records before posting.

Still, any other suggestions?

Can anyone suggest a reliable/inexpensive sewer cleaner? The guy I've been using to clean out my lines has retired. I was paying about $65 for a simple cleaning.

Any ideas?

Recycling Paint Cans

Just can't stay away


Hey all:

I've got a mess of old paint cans that have accumulated in the basement of my condo building over the years. I know that they need to be dropped off on route 440, does anyone have any experience with this?

I know I have to show proof of residency in order to drop them off, but is there a limit to how many I can bring? I tried calling the JCIA and have had no luck finding someone to speak to. I would like to know before I load all of them (30-40) into my car.


Also, does anyone have any idea where one could dispose of some lumber that has paint on it?

Please feel free to close Hamilton Park at your earliest convenience so that the park renovations can be completed ASAP. I am aware I will not be able to use the park during the reconstruction however I am perfectly capable of finding other things to do while the park is being renovated.

Thanks for all of your work and patience,

I appreciate all the hard work that must have gone into getting this project ready to break ground. I'll miss the park while it's closed, but even more than that, I'm eager to see it when it's done.
