They are still co-ops, and the original purchasers were the renters who were there originally, way back when. I believe the management company now owns a large number of them - I'm not entirely sure how that came about, but I'll bet Yvonne does. If it's like most co-ops, owners would own a fraction of the total property based on the size of the apartment. Once the parking lots get developed, I imagine some of those people are going to be pretty wealthy.

Having worked with the Freeholder & County engineers on this since July 2013, I'm so glad to see this coming to fruition!! Enjoy! It took awhile to get it, but it should be great for all who use the park. And it will calm traffic in there, which was the other goal here.

I would feel a lot better about this situation if it truly was transmitted the same as HIV. But you never hear of doctors contracting HIV who work with those patients. Also, the CDC is coming up with a new story by the day.

As I mentioned, I think the big test is what will happen once 21 days passes after the NY ebola doc's grand subway adventure. If 21 days passes with no new infections, ok, it's really not a big deal. But since it takes so long to show symptoms, we won't know for a while.


Ok hold up. I never said Ebola is transmitted the same as HIV. I was merely drawing a parallel between how frequent a virus can mutate, and what that actually means. People on this board keep fear mongering about it going airborne because the news keeps raising it as a possibility. Let's keep the stories straight here.

This is most likely because of how they remove their protective clothing. I'm not about to type out all the ways in which they're doing this wrong, but when done incorrectly, healthcare workers expose themselves. Remember, they're dealing with patients with explosive diarrhea and vomit. Little drops might find their way into the clothing of the healthcare workers in Africa that aren't fully sealed in, of which there are many.

But again, just because a virus can be transmitted through the air does not make it airborne. I don't know how else to draw that distinction other than how I did in my previous post. Yes, it can survive on a subway handle as long as the bodily fluid in which it exists hasn't completely dried up.

Let's take a breath and just examine the facts and react accordingly.

What is the status of the apartments? In an earlier post someone wrote that they were coops - is that still the case? If it is, I wonder how much of the vacant land is included as part of a shareholder's purchase.

If the sidewalk is covered in dirt, and then it snows on top of that dirt, do you still have to shovel? Your sidewalk is technically not snow-covered. Maybe this dirt bandit is really just a super genius.

It's at Mercer and Grove right in front of the old firehouse. It blocks the entire sidewalk. You either have to walk over it, or out into the street around it. I'm almost tempted to walk down there with a shovel and create a footpath. Seriously, the sidewalk has to be shoveled when there is snow, why is this ok?

You're talking about the animals, right?

BTW, there's been studies of feral dogs around the world, and they actually fall into a pretty narrow phenotype: 30-40 lb shorthairs. Too big & too small don't cut it. I kinda agree about the shortcomings of TNR, but I'm positive if you asked one of my cats if he'd rather live "fast and short" on the streets than lose his outside privileges, he'd take his chances. That's where we found him to begin with.


That would be because they're mutts. The street dogs in Italy, China, Jamaica, Mexico, etc. all look the same.

I rode through Lincoln Park today, and was excited to see the planned improvements taking shape (2-way bike lane; joggers lane; car traffic limited to one lane, in counter-clockwise direction).

I'm glad I'm not alone. I was trying to be polite about it but wtf? I have no idea what it could be for and there is no obvious indication from what I can tell regarding why it's there or when it will be gone. I can't think of any good reason why a mound of dirt would randomly be on the sidewalk for weeks on end.

The point I've made is reporting that the CDC has changed, again, their talking points about Ebola, how it's transmitted, and how you can get infected.

That is significant, because it's walking back their earlier talking points and saying, in effect, that it's more easily transmitted than we were led to believe.

Otherwise, why would they have changed their stance today?

Forget about the fact that the CDC made an announcement today about this, proving you wrong.

If you are serious that a sneeze "is not airborne," you are dumber than I thought.

Pebs, the change was significant enough for the CDC to announce it today. Since it comes from the CDC (and I guess the new 'czar') if you want to argue the merits of the change feel free to contact your Senator or Representative, not me.

Are you being serious right now? The CDC has stated, since the beginning, that this virus is passed via fluids. A sneeze is a release of fluids, it is not airborne.

It is passed very similarly to Mono...


Pebs, they changed the information TODAY to reflect that not just fluids (which in Ebola has meant vomit, blood, urine, semen, etc) and added 'droplets' which aren't fluids but can be airborne. The impression before was 'don't worry, you can't get it from a door knob unless somebody puked, peed, or crapped' on something. Now a sneeze will do. Just another argument for containment.

Droplets are liquid by definition. That isn't air. Many people simply assumed that you'd need to bathe in someones sweat in order to catch it, but most people with two brain cells that can be rubbed together are smart enough to know that a sneeze really is liquid since it contains mucus.

It really is funny, though, that you're part of the "please save us, government" brigade now...
