A new Realtor recently opened up in Hoboken, NJ – Links Residential(located at 101 Park Avenue.)
Besides having a nice bright corner office, what makes Links Residential any different from all the other Realtors in Hoboken?
Well, for one – they have other offices outside of town (Teaneck, Maywood), which is beneficial for those looking to relocate to places with more space, or even “real” yards.
Additionally, since they’re new – you’ll most likely get a more hungry agent that works harder for their clients. Plus, they’ve been recruiting experienced agents from other outfits in Hoboken.
We also found out that they have some unique features on their website that makes sorting through the available properties easier. Instead of just searching the basic features (like bedrooms and baths), you can also search for specific amenities (such as doorman and parking).
“Our business is built on honesty and transparency. We are not just real estate brokers; We are advisers and consultants, and are with you every step of the way to ensure you achieve your real estate goals.” Hmm. Maybe the “mayor” can learn something from these guys?
Anyway – welcome Links Residential to the neighborhood – and feel free to check out more here: linksnj.com.
I wonder if that was just a freak occurrence or a potential flaw in the building design? You might suspect that any kind of architectural design program would allow one to “simulate” how a building and the materials would handle various conditions (wind, rain, earthquakes, etc.)
If it is an issue – hopefully they fix it before next winter! Because I don’t think I’d be too comfortable walking on the sidewalk underneath with those sharp projectiles above!
Interesting. I stumbled upon a Hoboken nightclub that is for rent ($120,000 per year!)
“Ultra chic Nightclub with live entertainment in the prime area of Hudson NJ, County this area is known to have more bars per capita than many others in the United States. The night club consists of 3700 square feet with an indoor capacity for 350 patrons. The business has a huge dance floor, full stage, separate area for private functions, multiple serving bars, Private VIP area and a full kitchen. This Club has been fully upgraded during the past two years with a modern and attractive image. Because the sale of this business is confidential all viewings are by appointment only and photo may not represent this particular business.
Operator must evidence funds to transfer liquor license. This Nightclub has multiple bars, a full kitchen, professional sound system, DJ booth, special lighting systems, POS system, liquor license and entertainment approval and various equipment required for this industry. The building has a legal capacity for 350 customers plus space for extra capacity. The business operates, everyday, hours 8:00 pm to 3:00 am. The business has a New Jersey State liquor license and a full entertainment & food license from the municipality.”
I love that verbal jargon. “Photo may not represent this particular business.”
Do nightclubs still have a market?
The photo they used appeared to be from the West Five Supper Club over at 505 Madison Street. Not sure why they’d list something publicly online, and say it’s “confidential.” Also – if that photo was someone else’s businesses – doesn’t that cause other issues?
Regardless if it’s West Five or not (the description does fit almost spot on), how is the “nightclub” market doing these days anyway?
According to West Five’s promotional video, it doesn’t look like there’s a shortage of people who like dancing and partying the night away, although the number of “clubs” like this certainly has dwindled each decade since the disco era.
Does anyone do “bottle service” anymore? I’ve never done it myself, but what do they pay? Like $250 for a bottle of booze you can get for $30 at the liquor store?
Regardless – it’d be interesting to see what plays out. I suppose with the proper marketing, hype and general patron experience, pretty much any venue has a chance of succeeding. Anyone want to go “halfsies” with me?
Delicate work involved with Hoboken Deconstruction
Row houses (or brownstones) have always fascinated me. With such small lot sizes, it’s clear that interior space is much more important than a larger yard outside. How else could you cram 60,000 people into a square mile or so?
Imagine if Hoboken was laid out like much of the suburbs in the NYC tri-state area? If every “lot” was a modest one acre in size, we’d have less than 800 homes in Hoboken. Compared with around 20,000 or more!
Anyway – it’s amazing when one of the “row houses” is demolished – all without destroying adjacent properties. One such building getting knocked down this winter near 5th & Grand Streets, next to Dom’s Bakery. Wonder if they ever make some cool discoveries when they do this? Like buried treasure or finding Jimmy Hoffa.
