    I should've posted during the week when I remembered. It was great, and crowded, people dancing in the street, Hungarian music and dancing, art exhibits, and of course FOOD. There was the usual smattering of trinket vendors but not enough to matter, and of course, my camera batteries crap out.

    A good day either way. I think the next outdoor fest is the Raritan River Fest in September.

    Any news on that 22-story building next to Rockoff on New Street?

    Those are good updates from SSC. Drove by the new condo construction behind the Matrix building the other night and finally got how it's going to look.

    I didn't notice the one next to Rockoff but I may pass through this weekend.

    Glad to see that lot at RWJ finally filled in (although it would've been better to see the Stem Cell Research tower built there...). I wonder how soon DEVCO will be breaking ground on The Hub at the Ferren Mall site.

    I'm afraid this is one piece of NB that's falling. I'd stopped in front of this synagogue just a week ago and thought how beautiful it was, and that I hoped it wouldn't be closed down. It looked very old & beaten on the outside (except for the magnificent stained-glass windows), but it was stunning inside.

    NEW BRUNSWICK - A fire that destroyed a synagogue in the city Friday night appears to have been accidental, according to city and Middlesex County authorities.
    According to a news release issued Saturday afternoon by Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey, Director Anthony A. Caputo of the New Brunswick Police Department, and Middlesex County Fire Marshal Michael Gallagher, the fire appears to have started on the first floor of Congregation Poilezedek at 145 Neilson St. in New Brunswick.

    The specific cause of the blaze remains under investigation, and the investigation is active and is continuing, authorities said.
    Firefighters were dispatched to the scene of the blaze at 4:19 p.m. Friday and arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the synagogue. The blaze was under control by 8 p.m., but damage to the building was severe and extensive. Neighboring condos and buildings were evacuated. (think you have to have an account to view the rest of the article).

    Rabbi rescues Sefer Torah from burning New Brunswick synagogue





    The investigation is being conducted by members of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, the New Brunswick Police Department, the New Brunswick Fire Department and the Middlesex County Fire Marshal.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Todd O’Malley of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-3300, or Detective Thierry Lemmering of the New Brunswick Police Department at 732-745-5217.

    The synagogue site near Route 18 was purchased in 1905. In 1923, the cornerstone ceremony was held, and a year later, the building was completed and began operating, according to the synagogue's website. At that time, the congregation changed the name to Poile Zedek, which means "doers of righteousness."

    The synagogue offers daily morning, Shabbat and holiday services, and is committed to Torah education and community service, according to the website.

    Anyone have any news on the developments in NB? Any updates on the Upper lot project on Neilsen or the 22-story building next to Rockoff? Or the Ferren Mall replacement (aka the Hub)?

    If the weather would break on a Tuesday, I'll have to pay a visit to New Brunswick for a photo tour.

    Permanent Housing Complex for Domestic Violence Survivors Opens in Downtown

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ--On February 11, community organizers and residents gathered for the ribbon cutting of Dina's Dwellings, a community complex in downtown New Brunswick that offers permanent and supportive housing for survivors of domestic violence.
    This project was organized and created by Town Clock Community Development Corporation, lead by Reverend Susan Kramer-Mills. Dina's Dwellings is located at 9 Bayard Street, and is built within the First Reformed Church.
    This historic building, originally built in 1812, has been successfully refurbished to provide 10 affordable housing units within the supportive structure for domestic violence survivors who are leaving the shelter system and in need of affordable and permanent housing.
    Town Clock Community Development Corporation began this project in 2008 with the hope that Dina's Dwellings would "empower women" and as a result get them "back on their feet," states their website.
    This is a great and unfortunately necessary addition that needs to be built all across the country.

    Also Robert Wood Johnson is proposing a 40,000 square foot expansion
