Rent vs. buy in Jersey City: Which is Right for You?

Finding an affordable home in any city is possible, but perhaps not on the top location. Whether you’re renting or buying, the cost will depend on the property size, proximity to city centers, and transit. Since not every New Yorker can’t afford to live in good locations in the Five Boroughs, moving to Jersey City is a great option. New Jersey and three state areas provide a slower pace for more affordable costs than NYC. Thus, if you’re considering becoming a resident of Garden State, you might want to explore which housing option suits you better: to rent vs. buy in Jersey City?

NJ Finally Lifts Ban on Selling Home-Baked Goods Giving Small Business Owners A Bigger Slice of the Pie

By Rana Shanawani

Ridgewood NJ, people move to New Jersey for many reasons: beaches and boardwalks, diverse culture, family friendly atmosphere, great schools and of course fabulous food.  But until recently, NJ has been making noise for all the wrong reasons as the only state in the nation that prohibits small business owners from making and selling baked goods using a home kitchen (vs. commercial kitchen). As the Executive Director for the Women’s Center for Entrepreneurship, it is my passion to work with small businesses and I have focused my efforts on helping women and BIPOC entrepreneurs impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic gain access to critical resources to help them succeed.  This draconian law created excessive barriers to entry for thousands of small business owners who relied on selling home baked cookies, cakes, pies and other tasty treats to earn a living for themselves and their families.  But finally, with the help of the New Jersey Home Bakers Association, advocates and key lawmakers, NJ has lifted its ban and reformed this half-baked law, providing a glimmer of hope for struggling solopreneurs, fempreneurs and BIPOC entrepreneurs across the state.

The Origins of Fathers Day

the Ridgewood blog Wishes all the Dads a Happy Fathers day !!!

The Origins of Fathers Day

The campaign to celebrate the nation’s fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm–perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven’t the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.” On July 5, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday. The next year, a Spokane, Washington woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on July 19, 1910.
