The Quincy Shootings

The Quincy Apartments at 120 Neilson Street located in New Brunswick, NJ with approximately 200 apartments, have had multiple shootings. One, on May 7th of 2013 was a phony phone call for a pizza delivery. The gentleman delivering the pizza was leaving the apartment where the lessee said he never ordered pizza when three men surprised him, held him at gun point, and stole his money, his wallet and the pizza.

Officials took four months to solve the crime, but, due to persistence, found the man responsible for the pizza order due to technological footprints and was then able to trace the other perpetrators. One young man, the twenty-one year leader of the robbery, Parysh Wood, charged with robbery where prosecutors expect further arrests and convictions.

Shootings, theft, illegal weapons, and crime have become common place in the Quincy apartments. Another shooting on October 7th, 2015 where four gun shots were heard leaving one man hospitalized.

On January 24th, 2017 police are still watching the Quincy as suspects have been reported to commit a string of robberies while the victims are robbed walking from their cars to their home. The last incident was an unarmed robbery where the suspects are not similar in appearances. An even more recent robbery left a woman held at gunpoint while leaving the Dollar Tree. The difference in this robbery is the woman was walking form work to her car versus from her car to home. However, police are still trying to determine if these robberies are related and solve the crimes.

As the investigation continues, police ask anyone with information regarding these robberies to call 617-745-5766.

My Husband And I Are Very Happy That We Worked With Ignition Financial

It was on my husband’s idea to get a car from a dealership that I felt was not on the level. They had inflated prices, they lied about the conditions of their cars, and we were suckers enough to end up buying one. Unfortunately, even with the lies that the dealership told us, we were still stuck paying for the vehicle that was having one problem after another because we signed up with an outside lender. Taking the company to court only got us back a small percentage of the money we had paid on the car, so we had very few options.


Our monthly payments were pretty high, so it was my idea to refinance the loan. I told my husband that if we refinanced the loan with the right people that we not only would be able to lower our rates, we’d also be able to take any additional money that we save to get another car. We both needed our own car because it was too much for us to be going back and forth to each other’s job on a daily basis, but we were paying $500 a month for the car payments alone, not to mention $100 monthly for insurance.


Ignition Financial made every bit of difference in our lives, and it’s all because they have such professional people who know all about the refinancing process. If it wasn’t for a friend who told us about Ignition Financial, we would have never known about them. I put in an application online, and I completed everything by going down to see them in person. My husband wasn’t willing to go because he honestly didn’t think we would qualify for refinancing that was substantial, but was he ever wrong.


I was hoping that Ignition Financial was going to be able to slash my payments, but they did me one better by slashing the payments in half. Ignition Financial was able to find us a lender that made the payments go from almost $500 a month down to just under $250 a month. When I called my husband to give him the good news, he was eager to sign the paperwork and came down to the office with a big smile on his face. We signed the paperwork, and the extra savings has allowed us to purchase another vehicle, so Ignition Financial really saved us money.
