After hearing over and over again how Branch Brook Park Newark has the most cherry blossom trees even more so than DC, I made it there this past weekend. It was quite disappointing as far as cherry blossoms are concerned. The Park is miles long and the trees are scattered about everywhere. And of course, you don't have the tidal basin and monument type backdrop.

Having said all that it was beautiful Park and the surrounding neighborhoods were really nice. Both my friend were surprised Newark had those kinds of neighborhoods.


Well of course...If Branch Brook Park had a tidal basin and a monument type backdrop, it would probably be - Washington DC, not Newark!!!


Branch Brook Park is pretty great. It doesn’t have the Tidal Basin and monuments, but the pond and basilica backdrop give a similarly “monumental” feel, no?

To think of all of the power brokering and envelope passing that has happened at that place over the years. An institution in Hudson County politics.

Of the major fast food joints, both KFC and BK are missing in Journal Square.


Also, a Nathans/Arthur Treachers sign recently went up inside the JSQ Path station, where the old bagel place was years ago.

Thanks, neverleft. The link I posted was to the applicant's paperwork with City Planning, which is basically the same information.

What's surprising to me is that site is zoned R-1, which is weird because I'm pretty sure everything on that stretch of Newark Ave is Neighborhood Commercial.

They need to rip up the tracks, remove the overhead wires, and bring in equipment to dig down to the pipe. You can't run "reduced service" when the infrastructure itself is gone.

The Port Authority does not want to build a station in Marion. City forced the Port Authority to study it as part of the legal settlement over back taxes. Study is supposed to be done sometime this year. I'd be shocked if it said anything other than "Marion station is not feasible in the near term due to (x, y, z reasons), so no further action will be taken."

I somehow got into a “behind the scenes” tour of Hoboken Terminal around the time the article in the OP was written (2005 or so). The upstairs area is HUGE. There were still black coverings on the skylights dating to WW2.

The rep from NJT on that tour said something about turning it into a rentable ballroom for events, a food court, offices, or some combination of all of those things. Would love to see something come of it. Such a great space, but it needs a lot of work for sure.

Somewhere in my archives I can probably find pics

PANYNJ sold the retail space to Westfield for $1.415 billion in 2013. PANYNJ does get extra payments if/when the mall revenue exceeds a certain threshold (I don’t know what that threshold is).

It may seem foolish for PANYNJ to sell it off, but given how many empty stores there still are, it may have been wise to let it go.

You’re right. I just cannot get past this. There is a very real difference, and I cannot fathom that a stable adult would try to reason otherwise.

And even if you don’t understand that, I hope the church fathers do.

You are wrong Bike Lane, McCarrick victimized an 11 year old, and a 16 year old. There were payments made, I believe this happened in New York. In fact, here is the story, when John O'Connor was dying of cancer, he was the cardinal of New York at St. Patrick, he few to Rome and told John Paul 2, not to make him cardinal of New York. The one thing about the Catholic Church according to the investigators in Pennsylvania, they wrote everything down. Nothing was destroyed.


What part did I get wrong? I said he abused children because he was an animal. What you just posted supports that positon, no?

You keep repeating this over and over and over, and it's pure nonsense. McCarrick didn't abuse children because he was homosexual. He abused children because he was a sick animal. In your mind, maybe that's the same thing so the distinction doesn't matter to you??

And if they want consensual sex with women, they shouldn't enter the church either. For as long as those are the rules, I don't disagree.

The problem goes from consensual sex to abuse. In the case of the seminarians, they were abused by men who were their boss. Some men were kicked out because they complained. If a man states clearly on his application form that he is a homosexual, he would not be admitted. There are rules about this.


Sexual assault is a problem and the church needs to deal with it instead of hiding it. And once again, homosexual is not synonymous with predator. That's the point that you aren't grasping. Sexual assaults are sexual predator problems, not homosexual problems.

They're allowed to start as early as 7AM. Would you prefer that?

If you're concerned about potential damage to your property, contact your insurance company and get a condition survey performed now and again after construction is done.

Homosexual men have entered theseminaries. It does not matter who they have sex with, either men or minors. I will not back away from the truth, To copy your sentence, the church is full of homosexual men who are sexually active with men and minors. A house cleaning is in order.

Jesus, Yvonne. Yes, it does matter whether priests are having sex with men or minors. It matters a GREAT deal. You've repeatedly stated that you believe otherwise and that is SICK. SICK, SICK, SICK.

You keep mentioning that most of the sex (consensual or not) with seminarians is between men. When did the Catholic church start admitting women to seminary?

Homosexuals are men who prefer sex and/or intimate relationships with other men. Predators who prey on children are not the same thing. Some predators target boys, some predators target girls, some predators target both. But let's be clear. The Church doesn't have a homosexual problem. It has a predator problem and a predator-enabling problem.

But, hey, one bishop says it's all the gays' fault, so let's just keep posting that opinion over and over and over again, eh?

I will tell you why I don't buy the term pedophilia, it is just to pigeon hole the sex abuse to one group. It is not. According to the John Jay report, 5% were under 10, the majority was teenage boys. If that is pedophilia then the late Harvey Milk practiced pedophilia because he teen lover was 16 years old. Several months ago, I read about a man who left prison and burglarized a home. He end up raping the homeowner, a female of 84 years. He was going to rape someone female and the age did not matter. I am sure if the victim was 12 female, the press would have labeled him pedophilia, too.


Get some help. I'm genuinely worried about you.

While people here talk about pedophilia priests, McCarrick known victims were 11, 16 and many were in their 20s, men in the seminary. I don't buy the concept of pedophilia but access to males in general. My contributions to the church probably helped pay for the $180,000 payout by the Archdiocese of Newark to one of McCarrick's victims. The Catholic Church is an institution but the nonsense has been going on in Hollywood according to former child actor Corey Feldman for a long time.


11 year-olds are kids. 16 year-olds are kids. The guy in the original story below was 10 at the time. He was a kid.

This priest in the Archdiocese of Newark was/is a monster and should suffer the consequences of his actions. Your contributions to the church undoubtedly were part of the McCarrick settlement payout. And you have every right to be angry as all get-out at the Archdiocese and the Vatican over how they've handled these types of cases here and around the world.

Yet instead, you're splitting hairs over how old a child can be for the abuse to be considered "pedophilia" vs "pederasty," which is inconsequential to the fact that either is illegal abuse of children. And you're pointing at Stalin, gay dudes from Colombia (It's Colombia, not Columbia, you know), Hollywood, etc., looking for anything to scapegoat other than the failings of the Archdiocese of Newark and other Catholic leadership. What a sad, sick display.

Maybe instead of looking for scapegoats you should think about accountability next time you toss your envelope into the collection plate.
