31698967_1295606883906641_7788705603957817344_n

Virtual Walk/Run sponsored by Active NYC

Join us for our fifth annual FATHER’S DAY 5K virtual race! It’s time to celebrate your father the HERO! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”

What: This is a 5K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the awesome Dads out there!

When: Complete your race any time in June 2018. Even better if it’s on Father’s Day, which is June 17th!

*Medals and bibs will ship at the end of May. After that they will ship every 2 to 5 days.

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why: Because this is our way of celebrating Father’s Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Team Hoyt

Cost: The price is$18 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!

Landsea Homes, Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner and township officials held a ceremonial ribbon cutting Thursday for the grand opening of Avora at Port Imperial. The occasion marks the completion of Avora’s full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities.

“We celebrate the important milestone when vision becomes reality,” said Gabe Pasquale, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Landsea Homes, which is developing Avora adjacent to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal. “We carefully selected the Weehawken waterfront for its unique and desirable lifestyle attributes, including a world-class waterfront setting, considerable open space and proximity to Manhattan, and designed a modern, sophisticated and amenity-rich building for it to set a new standard of luxury living in the area. We’re thrilled to now raise the curtain on Avora and fully introduce it to the public.” See Photos

Former Hoboken Renter Escapes to Luxury Living at Soho Lofts in Downtown Jersey City

Soho Lofts Lobby wallA modern and upscale housing stock, energetic and trendy local scene and easy access to Manhattan have all combined to place Jersey City atop the list of most desirable Hudson River waterfront communities for today’s renting public.

Fueling the meteoric rise of this New Jersey Gold Coast city has been a growing movement to escape the aging apartment inventory and high rental prices of mainstay waterfront markets such as Hoboken and head to Jersey City where brand new luxury buildings feature apartments with more space, better amenities, and attractive pricing.

Nowhere is this trend more evident than at Soho Lofts, a collection of 377 upscale apartments in Jersey City’s SoHo West Community, an industrial-inspired neighborhood of loft-style homes, amenities and services being developed by Manhattan Building Company on the Hoboken border.  Over 75% of the rental homes at Soho Lofts have been leased, with more than 30% of its residents moving from areas such as Hoboken, Weehawken, Bayonne and North Bergen.

Lauren Stallone, a young professional who had been living with her boyfriend in uptown Hoboken, typifies the migration to affordable rental luxury at Soho Lofts.

“I was living in an older walk-up apartment on Hoboken’s Washington Street,” Ms. Stallone says.  “The home was in need of serious repair and lacked any sort of convenience.  There was no washer/dryer, no central air and no dishwasher.  It was a small unit with only 550 square-feet of space. We were paying a fortune for practically nothing and it was time for a move.” Continue reading
