    The garage has been there since the 1990's, and is an asset for Suburban families coming to Prudential Center. If you live north in Bergen, Passaic counties, Rail service to Newark does not exist. Taking the Bergen or main line trains to hoboken or Secaucus to make a hair raising near miss connection is unreasonable, when your car is 100% on time when you need it. Besides, NJ transit trains are almost one way westbound (away from the cities) on the far Boonton, Raritan, Pascack, Main (west of Waldwick)and coast lines. Thats when the ROCK is open.

    Honestly, I'm glad that the 5th Gateway tower was never built. Part of the reason why Newark has had such a hard time revitalizing is because developers chose to build boring, boxy buildings with no ground floor retail and bridges going between several buildings. Instead of encouraging people to walk and even shop on the street they kept people in doors literally from the time they entered Newark until the time they left. If the 5th tower was built, it would have just been one more block taken up by a building designed with the same mentality.

    Building walls can be "holed up" and opened up to retail. Look at the Side of the Dinoaur BBQ building. That was a solid wall,that made up the inside wall of a demolished structure YEARS before the Mulberry market was there.

    Where there alot of Newarkers or was it mostly Bussiness ppl? They should create a Plaza next to the train station and have it there.

    I don't know if anyone here uses reddit but there's a Newark subreddit that could use more content and attention.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Newark/

    We just doubled from 40 to 80 subscribers after I was able to advertise its existence in a Cory Booker "Ask Me Anything" thread which can be found here: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment...nj_founder_of/

    The type of content you guys publish here would be great for /r/Newark.

    By this claim indoor shopping malls should not exist. If you walked across 21 you'd understand why a skywalk is needed. Add on the rain and snow and there ya go. Newport has them, Manhattan has them, other cities have them. Nothing wrong with convenience. Even if they added a Gateway 5 the complex does not make up the majority of the city's office high rises.

    Id say a mix, leaning toward business people. The young lady was a Newarker as well as most you see sitting with shopping bags or buying produce. Most business people were in line buying sandwiches. This was around 1:30 pm.

    Hmmm , Most people avoid driving into Newark from the North now that Secaucus is open. Missing a train to Newark isn't that big a deal , one is often right behind... The People who drive in and park are from the West mostly...but that will change down the road as Newark's congestion gets worse and worse.

    Default Newark vs Chicago

    Though not development related and I know how much this forum hates discussing crime, but I just had to point out the irony of Garry McCarthy leaving Newark after much publicity to become Police Superintendent in Chicago and now Chicago is experiencing a 50% increase in its murder rate this year. FIFTY PERCENT!!! Now it's been pretty bad in Newark so far this summer with all the murders and shootings, but damn, good thing McCarthy left cause it might be worse had he stayed.

    I don't think crime discussion per se is the problem. block used to post press releases of every carjacking etc. It got tedious.

    Overall Chicago Crime is down like 9% except Murders , its the same in all cities in the US. Murders are going up and everything else down...and its mostly gang related.

    In 2012, Chicago crime is way up, not down. That's why it has received all the negative press about the crime wave.

    And the Chicago murder rate has absolutely skyrocketed. There's something like a 50% increase in murders.

    And this isn't occuring in other cities. That's why there's so much press re. Chicago. Most cities have drops in both murder rates and overall crime rates. Chicago seems to be an exception.

    I know their new mayor has drastically cut police funding, so that's probably an issue. It's not a safe city. Probably only Detroit and New Orleans are more crime-ridden than Chicago (I'm only counting big cities, not places like Gary, Camden or E. St. Louis).
