If you have a smart phone you can use the Hoboken 311 app for Iphone or Android to report issues to the city.
I've used it a few times, generally to good effect.
Washington Street is desperate for an upgrade. It's way too wide, which is dangerous for pedestrians, there is no pause period between when a light changes, and it likes crossing signals.
What is really crappy though is that it's terrible to ride a bicycle on. In fact all of Hoboken's cycling infrastructure is shit, from slap on the ground sharrows to lanes that are poorly maintained or ignored. I love how the critics say go to the hudson bike path, to them bicycling is exercise, not for going to places.
Some of the best rotisserie chicken I've ever had (incredibly juicy) and comes with a generous serving of fries or rice: https://www.grubhub.com/restaurant/kikiriki-2317-bergenline-ave--21-union-city/2151163
You can pick one up on Amazon for $8. Or just walk into the Ace Hardware or True Value.
Yes as a matter of fact i do have an update.
On Monday i had an interview with Spot the difference, which is an outsourcing company. About an hour after the interview, i got a call from a UPS representative, She wanted to schedule an interview with their package handling department after seeing my reddit posts. Not sure how she got my phone number but cool, i had an interview scheduled for 2 pm. so after racing down to the Panera ((i got the call in jersey city)) i opened my laptop, downloaded the zoom.us thing, and had the interview. I received an email about 30 minutes ago saying my intake process has been scheduled for 10 am on the 24th. After logging into my UPS account, i filled out the forms 8850 and W2, and my direct deposit form.
As far as i can tell, after my intake is done this Friday i start Monday. Full benefits, 25 hours a week, $10.35 an hour, i get to join a union (whatever that means) and i'm guaranteed a raise after a year. So now the plan is to save as much as possible. Hopefully i can stay at the shelter long enough to find more permeable housing.
I have also received interview offers from a door manufacturer, a concierge service, and the guy i gigged for a few days ago ((apparently I'm a good babysitter/chaperone)) at the time of writing this, UPS has the highest paying offer.
Also, I almost didn't notice the little app links on the bottom of the webpage so I'll include them here in case anyone else is interested: Apple/iOS, Android
It's been a few years but I've never had problems with NetGear or Linksys routers.
I've read that Net Gear are recommended for Optimum. As long as it's DOCSIS 3.0 compatible, you're good to go. Currently I have a Motorola, but I liked my old NetGear better.
Order one online, install it and see how it goes. You can always send it back. Make sure you run a speed test before and after you install it. I use Ookla Speed Test (it works on mobile too) https://www.speedtest.net/
The TP links work well and their price is low enough that you get your return back in a few months: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AC1750-Smart-WiFi-Router/dp/B079JD7F7G/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Computer+Routers&qid=1600364929&refinements=p_89%3ATP-Link&sr=8-3&ts_id=300189
They also work well as extenders. If you ever move into a building that requires multiple routers for coverage they can be plugged into the existing fios router to extend the network.
I use a counter top 2-cartridge water filter that is connected to the faucet spout.
The Zero Water branded filters also perform very well.
Some dimensions might be nice!
Here is a link to the chair.
Here is a link to the desk. This link also shows a mini-cart to put the CPU on, but when I purchased the desk in 2021, it did not come with that.
i highly recommend the following book for all members of this sub-reddit "Yuppies Invade My House at Dinnertime: A Tale of Brunch, Bombs, and Gentrification in an American City" here is the link for those interested: https://www.amazon.com/Yuppies-Invade-House-Dinnertime-Gentrification/dp/0944421016
How much luggage you bringing? I went to France last summer and used this for a 10 day trip [Samsonite Centric Hardside Expandable Luggage with Spinner Wheels, Caribbean Blue, Carry-On 20-Inch](https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B074VLMW6N/)
Just gotta learn how to pack for light travel. Underwear, socks, maybe two pairs of shorts and a few shirts. Pick 90 minutes in your trip to get laundry done while travelling instead of lugging an entire wardrobe, or you can have the hotel do it for you.
I have the prior version of this DDPAI camera and highly recommend it. It takes photos every few seconds when the car is parked and will turn on if the car is hit. But I honestly I doubt that someone throwing a can at the car would be enough force to trigger it.
highly recommend this ^^
Protip: Pizza Steel
Much better crust, and it's indestructible. Stones and tiles eventually break.

When I take the PATH or Subway I make sure to use an N95 or a high quality KN95 like these ones:
Definitely feel a lot more safer with these
If you can't find any, I saw this on Amazon, and some people wearing something similar around town and in JC, and ordered them. It's cheaper now than when I ordered. Made in the USA, and NIOSH approved.
I tested on Thursday afternoon and got the results yesterday (Tuesday).
If you don’t mind paying $75 and can wait about two weeks for it to arrive, these at home PCR tests are supposedly valid for travel and provide results in 30 min. Obviously do your own research to make sure it applies to where you are headed 🙂
Unless you own your place, make sure to look at the lease agreement. Some lease agreements specifically forbid this. Otherwise it looks like 1br -2br places go for 150-200 bucks a night. Just look around on Airbnb and switch up the dates. If you actually want your place to get rented regularly you're going to have to offer something competitive.
For example I would never pay 350 a night for someones 2br:

I posted this last time this question was asked, but can’t recommend this enough: Buy this book!
It changed my life during Covid! HIGHLY recommended for anyone who wants to get out of town and get into nature!!
Sorry for taking so long to respond. Here is a recording of the route in Komoot. I went where Komoot routed when choosing road ride mode and I went along River Road it seems:
If I hugged along the waterfront I assume it would have taken longer but been more scenic. I went in October after work so it was dark during most of the ride. Maybe I will try to do the same ride but to hug the waterfront as much as possible during summer and maybe I will enjoy it more.
Most of the cast from the TV show Jersey Shore are actually from New York. The whole "rivalry" thing is usually midwestern US transplants that live in Brooklyn and think crossing the Hudson River is like crossing the Atlantic by steamer. Here are some photos I took of a concert in Hoboken last night.
And here's a travel guide video for a website called TripFilms about Hoboken recently.
Buy this book!
I just moved and have a couple new ones. Another couple were used and have tape on them but they are still in good shape. Pm if you want em.
Alternative Amazon has good options: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08FYV2PC4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
You're talking about these kinds of things?
1: These aren't exactly cheap.
2: These aren't big enough to transport all my groceries consider I fill up most of the grocery store carts.
You're so determined to hate Acme that you don't seem to be acknowledging that not everyone's situation is the same and that for some people having a worse grocery store closer by is much more convenient.
I don’t love the smell/taste so I spent like 50 bucks on Amazon on an undersink water filter for the kitchen sink and it’s been very helpful
Below is the one I got but I assume all are basically the same. Installation was painless and took maybe a half hour. As long as you have a regular tool box you should be fine. Instructions tell you to mount it but I used command strips with velcro on them.

This mattress is only two years old, very clean, and is super comfortable. I'm moving across the country and cannot take it with me and I really don't want to see it end up in a landfill (reduce, reuse, recycle).
It has to be picked up today!
Here's the Amazon link to it - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006LAJ1MQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fab_Tm8CFbA6X0DK4
Not sure what you are paying for speed wise, but you can get something along the lines of this:
Edit: brand wise I’ve always used net gear and never had a problem. Tp-link is fine and those reviews don’t look terrible. Just make sure you’re getting what you need for your speed.
I'm late but I did the same thing and used these. Albeit I'm in downtown JC.
