But the mexicans there aren't like mexicans here. First, they aren't immigrants. Second, they are generally aggressive and thuggish. Not like in NYC. [ Reply | More ]

this is more my jam--i love historic details and this house has lots of charm. but with that comes some old house issues. there is probably no insulation in this sucker + oil heat, which means $$ in the winter. ask for last winter's utility bills and you will see the worst possible expense to expect. Love the eat in kitchen and mud room. That rock garden business is ridiculous though--i would rip that out, whatever it is. Imagine doing so would not be so expensive though. [ Reply | More ]

porch! our house has a porch and it is the best thing that ever happened to us. we meet so many people when the weather is nice, and I have heard some neighborhoods in ridgewood are not super social so maybe this would be a plus? i don't care much for open floor plans because we entertain a lot and i don't want to look at a dirty kitchen while we eat dinner, but if you like this feature, it's a real rarity in these older homes in nj. the floors look great throughout. there seem to be a crazy number of bathrooms. most of them would be fine with a more subdued paint color (easy fix). that deck is pretty great too.

I like #2. I love my life in the city, but this did give me a bit of pause. My apartment costs about $1.6 mil and my monthly maintenance and tax is about $3400/month, so $40,000. Taxes on the $1.1 mil house are less than that, so I could trade my 2 BR, 2.5 bath condo and make a profit. Then again, I'd have to live in the burbs. [ Reply | More ]

Maybe so, but somebody would be dead, since he was obviously out to kill someone. I suppose it could have been the kids in the Kindergarten next door, or the scout troop, or the church members leaving church. It's strange that when bullied kids kill a bunch of kids in a high school, people aren't saying it is wrong to speak out against bullies and we need to just shut up and let people bully so that one of their victims doesn't start shooting up a high school. But apparently that is your view, OP. No more talk about bullies -- they are very good people and should be praised from now on so that we can now prevent every school shooting. [ Reply | More ]
