From the Star Ledger:

Snooki’s and JWoww’s Jersey City ‘Guidette Barbie house’ for sale

Jersey City’s very own south Jersey Barbie dream house is now on the market.

The one-time home of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley near Van Vorst Park is on the auction block in Jersey City for $2.5 million, according to trulia.com.

The two reality-television stars lived in the firehouse-turned “guidette Barbie house,” located at 38 Mercer St., for five weeks in March 2012 during the filming of their spinoff show, “Snooki and JWoww.”

The “Jersey Shore” duo were repeatedly spotted hauling animal printed curtains, chairs and other items back to their home during their stint there.

“It’s very big, just think of a guidette Barbie house, that’s what it looks like,” Snooki told Us Weekly at the time.

The two-story, brick building which still retains its large firehouse garage door in front, is located around the corner from city hall. The home, a 4,700-square foot duplex with three bedrooms, boasts 12-foot tin ceilings and walls, the original firehouse spiral staircase and two-car garage, according to trulia.com.

    Urban living is now officially uncool, from the Record:

    North Jersey empty-nesters move downtown

    Since she moved from a single-family home to an apartment in downtown Englewood, Linda Kourakos has been able to spend less time in the car and more time on foot.

    “You walk out the door, you have shops and restaurants, you have the Bergen Performing Arts Center,” said Kourakos, 62, a retired interior designer who moved from East Brunswick to be closer to her daughters in Bergen County. “I felt if I was downsizing, it would be nice not to have to get into a car all the time.”

    Her neighbor, Andrea Diamond, also moved from a single-family house to the Towne Centre apartments in Englewood.

    “You can walk to everything, the supermarket, the post office, the library, restaurants,” said Diamond, 65, who has children and grandchildren nearby.

    As Diamond and Kourakos found, a pedestrian-friendly lifestyle can be a good fit for people who want to drive less (or not at all) as they age. And North Jersey was highlighted in a recent report by New Jersey Future for having towns that can work for seniors because they offer walkable neighborhoods, downtown shopping areas and good access to public transportation.

    But there’s one problem: Seniors often want smaller, low-maintenance rentals or condos, and there’s not enough of this type of housing in North Jersey, even in towns that are otherwise a good match for aging residents, according to the New Jersey Future report, “Creating Places to Age in New Jersey.”

    “Plenty of towns in Bergen and Passaic counties with traditional downtowns and walkable neighborhoods have relatively short supplies of the smaller homes and apartments that are more suitable for older residents,” the report said. “Many municipalities will need to create more aging-friendly housing options.”

    Turn unused shopping malls into senior citizen housing.
    You can put a clinic on site, along with supermarket and have a CVS, Walgreens, and Rite aid where Sears, Macy’s and J.C. Penny are.
    Plenty of access for wheelchairs, elevators are there and so are escalators for the walking ones.
    Banks, ATM’s already in place.
    Plenty of visitor parking in place.
    Plenty of hotels nearby for guests to stay.
    Only bathroom/sleeping facilities need to be made, aka interior walls, easy enough to do.

    [15] anon,

    “so it’s baffling that right-wingers insist in sending their kids there”

    Their kids are usually smart enough to know when they are being subjected to programming and propaganda. They ignore it.

    The smart ones keep their heads down, parrot back the PCBS to get good grades, then go out and get into Ivy grad schools that, with the exception of a few law schools, are not bastions of liberal groupthink.

    Heck, it isn’t just Ivies. I was subjected to the leftist BS but I simply told them what they wanted to hear, got good grades, and went on my merry way.

    Or is that too obtuse?

  20. Juice Box says:

    In 2012, “96 percent of all campaign contributions from Ivy League faculty and employees went to Barack Obama.”

    A liberal arts education is NOW an education in the art of liberalism.

  21. Comrade Nom Deplume, a.k.a. Captain Justice says:

    [19] redux

    Consider also that the classrooms that teach the PCBS courses would be empty but for the fact that universities, in their belief that students should be exposed to subjects outside their areas of interest require that these courses be attended.

    Finally, the sort of person who is going to waste mommy and daddy’s money on a major in Scandinavian LGBT Literature isn’t bright enough to see through the B.S. There’s a reason these people can’t find jobs in their majors, except by going back to universities and teaching the PCBS courses.

    Essentially, requirements that students take courses in these areas are really jobs projects for people who would be woefully underemployed but for the programs. It’s just like government make-work.

  22. Comrade Nom Deplume, a.k.a. Captain Justice says:

    [20] juice

    “96 percent of all campaign contributions from Ivy League faculty and employees went to Barack Obama.”

    For the same reasons that 90+ percent of the black vote went for Obama, and a huge majority of the government workers voted for Obama. Its in their self-interest.

    If you look at major endowments from wealthy alums, they usually go to build a business school or engineering building. Few wealthy alums fund a Women’s Studies chair although I suppose it happens from time to time.

    I would LOVE to see a billionaire offer to donate a substantial sum to his or her alma mater with the proviso that the school has to axe one of its B.S. programs.

    The fury would be epic–I’d get the popcorn, fruity drinks, and a nice comfy chair so I can watch.

  25. Comrade Nom Deplume, a.k.a. Captain Justice says:

    [23] nwnj

    When you have video of children learning songs praising Obama, that’s all you need to know.

    I know of no other examples in modern history where children were taught songs lionizing a single president.

    But I don’t fear that, or the shoprite example. The same right wingers that send their kids to Ivies have either sent their kids to private schools or sent them to supplemental learning centers/tutors/additional homeschooling, etc.

    I think you will find that the children who are coming out of schools dumber than a bag of hammers are also the ones that are most susceptible to the liberal brainwashing.

    From MarketWatch:

    Pending U.S. home sales decline slightly in June

    Pending home sales fell 1.1% June to mark the first decline in four months, according to an industry trade group. The National Association of Realtors said its pending sales index dropped to 102.7 in June from a revised 103.8 in May. The number 100 is considered an average pace of sales. Still, the index was 7.3% below the year-ago level of 110.8, showing that sales of U.S. homes continue to face headwinds such as higher interest rates, difficulty obtaining mortgages and stagnant wages of prospective buyers. Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, predicts that sales are likely to increase modestly in the second half of 2014 as home prices level off and more properties go on sale. By region, pending home sales rose 1.1% in the Midwest and 0.2% in the West, but they fell 2.9% in the Northeast and 2.4% in the South. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed but the transaction has not closed. Not all contracts lead to closings

    As a father who put through two kids in the Ivies and one still in a NESCAC school, I have to admit that liberalism, radical type for the most part, is definitely there. My daughter (the NESCAC one) spent time with me this weekend determining how her fall schedule was to be filled after the mandatories. The choice of studies were horrendous. Each discipline, including geography had a ‘social justice’ bent to it. The courses that had no particular political mission were the first ones filled to capacity. We were beside ourselves trying to find something acceptable that she would actually benefit from once she graduated. The lack of courses catering to those that wanted to find practical jobs in life were minimal. It seems as if the Board of Trustees wants to go this way as if they have one big guilt complex. My daughter says that many kids do see through the propaganda, but a substantial number of students and parents just go along with it.
    This is for a school that has an student’s average family income of $165000.

    They wanted me to sign a form that said I agreed with and would support their green+ noblesse oblige philosophy. Teaching kids early how to be hypocrites pretending to love rainforests and Tanzanian children while running a campaign for office (in an ivy league school). Public school tries to promote the same agenda, but at least there the hours per semester requirement is mostly optional rather than required.

    It really is not that surprising. Humans are animals. The smarter of us think for ourselves and can see marketing for what it is. I figured it out at a pretty young age when I chose not to dress in designer labels in junior high/high school. I can thank my parents for instilling this knowledge in me. Now that does not mean I am cheap. I will buy decent shoes (that can be resoled), quality appliances, really anything that will last, even if it expensive. Heck, I used to even purchase Co@ch belts back when Co@ch cared about quality.

    I remember when my dad purchased an Audi growing up. It was when Audi was going through their issues with involuntary acceleration issues and a whole slew of other electrical issues. This Audi was such a POS. I recall my dad cursing it daily and regretting the decision to purchase it over and over again. When the horn started going off every time he took a sharp left turn, he traded it in for peanuts.

    If Trulia and Zillow haven’t killed the Realtors already, they never will.

    Look, it’s easy to take MLS data and present it to buyers, but what about getting the listing?

    Until these guys can attract listings in mass, they are simply rebroadcasting third-party data. The business models are all geared towards attracting buyers through new channels and pairing them with agents. This ain’t a game changer.

    From a monetization perspective, all about selling the service to Realtors and ancillary service providers. Kill the Realtors and MLS, and they kill their cashflow.

  43. Juice Box says:

    re: “Teaching kids early how to be hypocrites.”

    No need really it is ingrained now in everything we do.

    I read somewhere that American kids today get upwards of 11 hours a day of screen time between TV, computers, video games, tablets and smartphones. I am pretty sure they are all going to be damm good hypocrites when it comes to being green and lets not even mention the labor that went into making those devices. There is no social justice when it comes to our electronic devices made by workers in far away places.

    I agree with the philosophy wrt critical thinking, but when the internet was popularizing, one of the mantras was for empowerment of the small voice vs the mass media.

    But now that all dopes like anon have joined the cyberworld, the mass media have adapted to their tactics to the web and social media. So as far as the online tools empowering the little guy and reducing the influence of mass media, that theory is dead and buried. The internet has become the 21st centery b00b tube.

    There is nothing really new in this tax piece but something that the author said, and perhaps didn’t even realize the implications, piqued my interest.

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/101867628

    The idea that the spate of inversion transactions now as evidence that US corporations were looking for tax reform and, seeing that it wasn’t forthcoming, decided to create their own is, itself, an intriguing notion. It suggests that corporate leaders had given up on the idea that the USG would do anything to help them compete.

    But to me, it has a darker portend. Corporate leaders are paid to take a longer view and try to position their companies for the future, and the rush for the exits, both by corporations and individuals, suggest that these people, who must be acknowledged as wealthy, smart, connected, informed, etc., have taken a long look down the road and don’t like what they see. And I think what they see is that the anons of the world will gain ground and make the reflexive grab for accumulated capital rather than foster conditions for its continued growth. Why learn to fish when you can simply take the other guy’s fish?

    The wealthy can see that they won’t win a true class war since the have-nots control the votes. And since no one wants to live in the next Venezuela, the “plutocrats”, as anon would call them, are getting out of Dodge, lock, stock and barrel.

    I remember when my Realtor TM tried to pitch me his companies services in the Mortgage market, prequaifications, fast approvals bla bla bla. I basically told him that if he spoke another word about me and my finances that I was getting up and leaving. Realtors however apparently are still ” The most influential people in the mortgage business”. It cost several times the $$$ to advertise in print or web 2.0 media to get business over a referral. That old marketing adage has not changed all that much in the mortgage business yet, referrals are still everything and hence the Realtor and their referrals.

    Speaking of pitching services, a long time reader here and member of my investment club recently went to Carl Nielson (the dude I always recommend as I used him 6 times) for a mortgage on his first home. He was super happy and Carl matched an internet quote from a questionable internet originator even though he was convinced it was a bait and switch. I don’t know the details of the loan, but I know they expedited the closing to a week and Carl was able to do it and at an 1/8 lower than anyone else.

    Full disclaimer: Occasionally Carl sends me Devils tickets. Though I’d still shill for him if he didn’t. Though not everyone I referred to him was happy. Probably, because he works on quantity and not quality. He is not a hand-holder. Know what you want, bring him the best numbers you can find online and that’s it. And tell him Stu sent you. I want to keep those tickets coming.

    67. To a corporation, the USA is a nothing more than a vessel.
    Shareholders/corporation have no national pride. They don’t wave flags.
    They don’t have ethics or morals, yet in the eyes of the law are considered “beings” with rights and benefits.
    As such, they are like lightning– they look for the path of least resistance and could care less about what damage/good they do. They can justify either.. at least to themselves anyway.
    Public relations are just like Carlin would say, bull.
    They will strip the land bare if allowed.
    If not allowed they will find other land to strip.

    In the USA, most of the things we need we have already.
    The majority of other things are just wants.
    People here should focus on the needs, and let the “wants” corporations fly away to wherever they would like.
    Then tariff them so bad they wished they never left.
    They can’t sell most of their crap to anyone else in the world, cause no one else has the ability to go into debt as much as the American overleveraged marketingbrainwashed consumer.

    [63] joyce,

    “Not sure what evidence you’re seeing to justify this statement.”

    I’m not sure how to respond to that.

    My take was Joyce was implying that CEOs etc are not paid for taking a longer view…

    Older brother’s reaction:
    ‘Feelin like iam in a dream… God wake me up when u readyy .. Please tell me u aint take my lil brother from mee !!

    Who would have thought that elevator surfing was so dangerous? I note that residents blamed the elevators. Going to be a hard lawsuit to win, but there must be a lawyer willing to argue on behalf of dead elevator surfers.

    Isn’t the age just about right for Stu’s story?

  79. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    Anybody in their 50’s noticed this on linkedin ? I was looking up some of my contemporaries and noticed there is now a trend to disguise your actual age by:

    A. Not listing bachelor’s degrees, only advanced degrees and certificates earned at a later age. I guess if you list your alma mater someone will find you in a newsletter as “class of 198_”
    B. Not listing the first 10 years of professional experience.
    C. Stating “Over 20 years of professional experience”, when they have over 30.

    Most of the people I found with these markers are employed and high up in mgmt, it looks like they are just being proactive in case there is an unexpected job hunt in the near future.

    Some Ivy League skool will have a Lifecycle of Bebo course by 2017.

  81. Me likey ride elevator…oops…

    The age is correct, but it says his momma was there. I’m pretty sure that family still leaves in JC, but I could be wrong. Must check the Facebook page. I lived next to Bebo in JC in 98 and he was probably four or maybe five tops, so the age does check out. I’ll see if there’s a tax database where I can look up their last name.

    I could definitely see someone with Bebo’s bloodline and upbringing elevator surfing at 4am.

  83. Libturd at home says:

    Bebo’s pad in JC, which sold in 2005, was renovated and the taxes went from $4020 to $10,066. This really could be Bebo!

  84. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    I remember on a hot July day during a Quincy street fair in 1999 the news erupted and people said, “Oh no, not John-John!” Is it possible that there are families in JC mourning similarly, holding up Bic lighters, “Oh no, not Bebo!”

    Stu: off my desk tomorrow…will forward Wednesday….a new age driller and new age Cisco….the original ping was for the former, but now I am leaning toward the latter……

    No promises or guarantees. Sltd. Sorry for the late post. My daughters first birthday today. Took her down to point pleasant for the afternoon. Great day with my family and this stock ripping for 40% today was just icing on the cake. It’s a true penny stock, but it is pulling a profit for the year, and sales jumped 600% from the first qt to the second. Be careful though, in case there is pullback tomorrow after such a large gain. But stock looks like it’s going to rip.

    Were you the one who heard some Pingry horror stories, re teaching quality?

    Pingry, Delbarton, Rutgers Prep… doesn’t matter which one. They all suck math and science wise. People seem to think privatization always results in better quality. Private schools pay their teachers 30 to 40k max. They’ll even try to start out the younger ones at 25k. You get some really really crappy teachers at that rate. We clean up tutoring because these kids need to score well on their SATs and AP exams. It’s pretty common for all of these kids to have about 4 tutors a year which costs their parents an extra 16k on top of tuition.
