Re: What’s going there? (Journal Square edition)

I'm definitely interested to see how the area develops and if journal squared will help transform it. To be honest, I'm kinda skeptical of the area will change, but I hope it's the start of something good. It'd also be nice to see some other projects break ground.

Re: Question on handing out stuff in JC to pedestrians

You won't have a problem. Our church gives out granola bars at Grove path station and no issues. You shouldn't have problems either unless your business is an escort service or something like that. What's your business?

Re: No more panhandlers in Journal Sq. PATH station?

I have to say this is a welcome change. A couple weekends back, I saw a disheveled man in front of J Sq. drop trou, pull out his thing and with his arms stretched out and up while shouting, piss in the middle of the street, basically begging the authorities to do something about it. I'm looking forward to this area being free of vagabonds like these.

What are some good blocks in Berg-Layf?

Not familiar with the area (no car), but definitely interested. I've heard Astor Pl is nice.

Can others suggest some good blocks as starting points?


I too have moved to the area and I have to say I enjoy my blocks quite a bit. I live near gifford and JFK and the area is quite nice. It has tall old trees, nice Victorian homes, beautiful Lincoln park is close by. There's a few good blocks around there. As you approach Bergen and monticello it gets more sketch. I dont feel unsafe there, just not as middle class. Supposedly a theatre is to be built near St Peter's university, which is a ten minute walk away. Also some decent ammenities/shops on west side ave also 10 minutes walk away. Busses come by jfk on a regular basis and it a 20 minute walk to journal square or the westside lightrail. If priced out of dtjc, its a pretty good spot.

Btw, all the stuff about Astor place is way overblown. Its an OK block, not too different from others around it: middle class with hints of rough edges and houses without much character. And the electrical lines are an eye soar on the block.
