Does anyone know of something, or even have a realtor to recommend?

Thanks in advance.

I'd also be willing to move to Jersey, but I'd prefer to find a place with some parking or a garage if I'm going to go over there.
should be able to find a battery park share for that kind of dosh.

for about $1,500/month (more or less) in Union City - you'll have a nice decent apt with garage. Check out West New York, Hoboken, certain part of Jersey City, certain part of Bayonne too. (search craigslist with this keyword: "Union City garage").

I refuse to live in NYC.

ya'all poor bastards with hit n' miss experience at hospitals in city. I haven't had a bad experience YET with NJ hospitals - Englewood, Holy Name, Hackensack, and Pascack Valley (now shut down).

Holy Name's (Teaneck) my choice of hospital for now. Awesome facility. I guess that's where you'll find me if I'm in face plant thread

In NICE hospitals

That's the key point I think you've missed

lol it's spread out to over 15 years but the quality of service seems consistent. From my hospital list - I would rank Englewood the lowest.

no broken bone or serious injury. only 1 major surgery decades ago. some mysterious illness here and there but it's the quality of service and shorter waiting period as deciding factors for me. Englewood... awful. I thought I'd appear in newspaper like that poor lady who suddenly dropped dead at NY hospital's waiting room and nobody noticed for hours. Holy Name... I was treated like VIP. Very organized and high tech. Maybe it's cuz they like my insurance carrier?

Maybe it's just me, but I can't bring myself to go to a hospital called Hack and Sack. Maybe if I'm looking to get neutered.

/ and i went to Carbon in Williamsburg yesterday so he could haggle with the owner over a new royal enfield.

while i won't comment on the bike itself, i will say that i've never met a ruder (?) bike shop owner than this guy.

i googled him up and he seems like a real winner

Used to drive by that shop on the way home when I'd get off an exit early.

Whole place just screams:
