Have you guys read the article from JJ:

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said: "It's worrisome because we should have learned from our mistakes," referring to Liberty Towers, which is one block away on Morris Street. That building also was the scene of a top-floor fire while it was under construction. That 2002 fire was on the 29th floor and the standpipe only went up to the 23rd floor.

I seem to recall this happened with the Gotham (Warren and Montgomery) when it was being built in the late 90's. Not on the same scale though.

The episode showing this house aired last night on HGTV. Don't know when it will air again.

Anyone else catch it?

Cost of a Van Vorst Park Brownstone in today's market
#4

We're thinking of selling our place by Van Vorst Park (Webmaster - this is not a solicitation for offers, just a discussion)

Just a few questions. Does anyone have any ideas on what a two duplex Van Vorst Brownstone should fetch in today's market?

A house in my neighborhood sold pretty quickly for $975K. From what the neighbors said, it wasn't anything special. In pretty decent shape, but certainly not a complete renovation.

Also, what would be a reasonable commmision to pay to a realtor?

And finally, can someone explain how commisions are divided when a property is sold through Multiple Listing? A realtor we contacted tried to explain how complex the formula was. I figured it was just 50% to the listing agent and 50% to the selling agent.

Spotted him today...Halloween orange, it was quite the fashion statement. I couldn't believe it - head to toe. But knew about him from jclist...


Saw him in the Halloween Orange outfit yesterday around 6:30 PM. He was talking on his cell phone, walking west on York before turning south on Varick.

Say what you will, but the man's got style!

I've seen him walk past my place (a few blocks west of Grove) on his way to the Grove Street PATH, but can never get my camera out quick enough. I told my wife about him but I don't think she believes me.

Jersey City is about 10 years away from being anything close to resembling any of those neighborhoods in Brooklyn.


Good. Come back in ten years. I'll sell you my brownstone for 3 times what I paid.

Funny........our pal Elvee is bemoaning how the thread has been taken off track with non-germaine issues, yet he closes each of his recent postings with a Jerry Healy tagline and web link!

By the way, Elvee, how's that exhaust fan working that you installed without permits?



Those are part of my signiture.

Where did you ever read that I installed an exhaust fan?

The thread isn't a joke. Some of the posts are. But it appears to me that for property owners, this is serious, deal-breaking stuff.


Some of the posts? Out of the now 166 posts, I'd say about 30-40 are relevant.

I own a brownstone in the Van Vorst Park area. I understand what the homeowners are feeling. It's just that this (and most) threads gets taken off track by moroninc anonymous postings.

And now, so does everybody else.

This thread has become a joke.
