I like the statue. I was upset when I heard it was going to be moved to the middle of Montgomery St. After all of the fracas, and the plan changed to move it to the foot of York St., I found that to be a good compromise.

The statue will have a nice prominent location and there will be a nice park at ExPl. Who can be upset about that?

There was an article about 15 years ago concerning a Newark hospital treating leprosy in the emergency room. It is also the reason why so many diseases that once was wiped out are now returning.


None of that has anything to do with Boonton Reservoir or safe drinking water in general.

Your post is akin to opposing a new parking lot in JC on the grounds that someone in Newark once got bit by a dog. It doesn't connect.

Renewable energy has nothing to do with protecting the public's drinking water. At the turn of the 20th century, people actually died from polluted public drinking water. As more people come here from different countries they also bring some of the diseases from their country. Some of these diseases are air borne other are water borne. We don't need to have our water exposed to humans period.


Post after post, you demonstrate that you have no idea what modern, 21st century water treatment is.

The water in the reservoir today is dirty. There's garbage that flows into it, there's fuel and chemical runoff (remember when you said renewable energy doesn't matter?), chemicals and pollutants absorbed from the air, there's human and animal feces in it, there's rotting flesh of dead animals and plants in it, there's microorganisms that are really nasty in it, algae, bacteria, fungi, viruses.

All of that is in the water now. Whether a jogger or hiker stops to pee in it, that would be the least of the nasty stuff in the reservoir.

Again, the water gets TREATED after it leaves the reservoir and before it comes to our homes. All of that nasty stuff, the garbage, the animal fluids, human fluids, microbes, etc., is killed and/or removed from the water. That makes the water safe to drink. The water is not sitting in the reservoir pure and clean. It's nasty until it's treated. And it's not treated until it leaves the reservoir.

Hopeful an ounce of this sinks in.

However, the prices are almost 4x's what you will pay in Shoprite for the exact same quality. Why? Because you're paying for the farm's liability insurance, which is exhorbitant for any 'pick your own' farm open to the public.

'Pick your own' blueberries at the farm - 10 pints for $70
ShopRite blueberries - 6 pints for $24


Those prices are crazy. We saw a farm out in Morris County with prices in that range and didn't go there. Emery's was much cheaper. $2 admission fee for adults, and then $3.99/lb.

Went to Emery’s Farm in New Egypt a couple weeks ago. Nice experience but it closes early (they make you leave the blueberry field by 4pm) and it’s getting late in the season by now. Hurry if there’s anything left.

The last round of cars worked out to, what, about $1.5M per car?
That was a decade ago. Since then, inflation, tariffs on many of the materials, and all of the gadgetry that make the cars operable with trackside PTC equipment have contributed to an increase in cost. Does all of that justify $1.3M increase in cost per car? Don't know.

No kidding. Try living in Hilltop, where Key Food is the closest thing that resembles a supermarket, and it's a 20-minute walk away, and CTown on Academy is about the same distance in the opposite direction.

That intersection has always been a dangerous mess. It’s much better now. P&K will continue to get foot traffic (perhaps more now) and if customers insist upon driving there, there’s a parking lot right behind their store.

Interesting. I wonder if this puts to rest rumors I was hearing about WF looking at the 2nd Journal Squared building. Or maybe a 365 would still be a possibility there.

I know what I am talking about because I live near and take Newark Avenue frequently. This is not different than being on the turnpike or some other road. The accident or the construction barrier a mile away causes slows down that filter down to all the cars.


I live close enough that I can hear when there's a traffic issue on Newark Av from my bedroom. I walk Newark Av every day. There is not a continuous backup across the entire city because of the Pedestrian Plaza. That just is not reality at all. The worst-performing parts of Newark Av are in JSQ. And that has nothing to do with the Pedestrian Plaza, because east of JSQ, Newark Av operates under capacity and at a high level of service.

Your understanding of the principles of traffic engineering and traffic fluidity in an urban street network are not well-developed.

Wait, what does the pedestrian plaza on Newark between Erie and Grove have to do with traffic in India Square and by Monteleone's?

I agree that traffic in India Square can be a pain, and it has been made worse by the Skyway/Route 139 work and Waze routing drivers onto Newark Ave through India Square to get around that construction mess.

But that has nothing to do with a one-block pedestrian plaza on the other side of town.

I walk up to Monteleone's from time to time. There's a CitiBike dock near there too. I should stop by and pickup some cookies and pastries, maybe this weekend.
