Six burglaries have occurred year to date at the Bayonne luxury apartments Alexan CityView. That’s an average of a burglary nearly every two weeks. Some residents of the Constitution Avenue luxury apartments pay upwards of five thousand eight hundred dollars monthly for the privilege of living in… Burglar-town!
What is to be done? People who pay annual rents equivalent to nearly twice the statewide per capita income in New Jersey expect security and safety to be part of what they pay for, and residents are beginning to ask uncomfortable questions. Management, however, has little to say on the matter according to NJ.com, which drives further questions.
Residents are being terrorized, and the management of the Bayonne luxury apartments has hired what it calls a “courtesy patrol,” which they’ve stated is “not intended to replace local law enforcement,” according to the above source. Should more action be taken? Can anything at all be done, or are these upscale apartment residents bound to live in fear until their lease is up?
Most of the burglaries involved thefts from homes, including one theft of jewelry worth over twenty thousand dollars. Generally the people who live in a community of this sort are not the type to forget to lock their doors. One burglary involved a car being placed on milk crates so that the rims could be stolen. That takes some serious chutzpah to pull off, in a lit parking lot with potential witnesses practically milling about.
What Is To Be Done About Bayonne Luxury Apartment Burglaries?
At least one resident, who pays only $2,500 a month, is in talks to break his family’s lease due to the crimes. More serious crimes have been alleged, as well, but only online, not through proper channels. No verification of those crimes is available, so for the moment the crime spree is to be viewed as a risk to property only.
When it comes down to it, living in Bayonne luxury apartments is scant protection. You are responsible for your own safety and that of your property, and there’s only one way to ensure you’ll never suffer a loss like this. New Jersey Renters Insurance would cover theft of property, as well as paying replacement cost for the items. Replacement cost is important, because actual cash value drops so quickly, even on higher-end merchandise.
All of the burglaries and thefts appear to have been valued at well over $1,000, some well into the five-figure range. Renters insurance in Bayonne costs about fifteen dollars a month for a basic policy in most cases. Clearly, if you buy renters insurance, it’s a much better investment than replacing your property, perhaps even replacing something stolen repeatedly.
