Oh who gives a shit about this pedestrian suburban crap? People in suburbia have these things so they can feel good about their 90 minute commutes and the dull lives on cul-de-sacs.

Kings had stores in many, if not most, of the towns in the competition. In fact, the one in Maplewood is among the smallest location they have, with little parking.

The maplewoodonline website has been pushing residents to vote-on their home devices, at work, on their mobile phones. And that site gets a ton of local traffic, with threads having ten, twenty, hundreds of pages of posts. It wouldn't surprise me if they win. Of course, that won't take away from the crime, the issues in the schools, the high taxes, and the controversy over the redevelopment of downtown!

Umm - they acknowledge the result are a sham:

"Social networking and word-of-mouth appear to be driving the voting in the winning towns. Montclair, Maplewood and Cape May each beat a town with a significantly larger population."

We officially know who's resident best use facebook - awesome.

Jersey city's down town is really not that much bigger than Somerville's or Princeton's downtown's.

Don't know what cloud you are on, perhaps you think you are really in NYC but Jersey City is in New Jersey. Like it or not.


Nah man, you're misinterpreting my post. If you have a chance, re-read it.

the whole initial pairing by population makes no sense. If anything that should contribute to a higher seeding. In what kind of reasonable bracket would you have Hoboken face Jersey City in the first round.

This bracket is manipulated to have 4 final participants of differing size.

Huh? Why is a large, incredibly urban city like Jersey City in the same contest as towns like Summit and Somerville, to compare "downtowns"? That's like a local Massachusetts magazine including downtown Lexington MA as well as "downtown Boston" in a contest of the best downtowns in MA -- it doesn't even make any sense.

Really silly. Obviously a suburban town won, because that's what this contest is truly measuring. Hoboken and Jersey City shouldn't be in this contest, they are incredibly dense and incredibly urban.

Maplewood, you?re a winner!

Maplewood is one of eight New Jersey towns to emerge victorious in the first round of New Jersey Monthly?s first-ever Downtown Showdown, presented by Kings Food Markets.

In the first round in which 16 teams vied for the eight spots in round 2, Maplewood beat out Summit.

In round 2, our Essex County Eden is up against the ivy-covered prestige and downtown shopping of Mercer County?s Princeton.

To ensure that Maplewood Avenue triumphs over Nassau Street, vote here. There?s only one vote per person per round.

The four winners of this round will face off starting Tuesday, September 15. The championship round starts the following Tuesday, September 22, with the ultimate winning downtown to be named by NJ Monthly on September 29.

Besides Maplewood and Princeton, other towns that made it through round 1 are: Hoboken, Montclair, Morristown, Red Bank, Somerville and Cape May. Besides Summit, the eliminated towns include: Jersey City, Westfield, Ridgewood, Asbury Park, Collingswood, Haddonfield and Lambertville.

Read more about the contest here.
