    To prevent expensive luxury redevelopment that attracts the "undesirables" that will upset the Newark
    royal Democrat community activist oh,sorry...."non partisan" hegemony over the 90% low income electorate.
    To be mayor of Newark, the old corrupt leaders of Sharpe James,Crump will tell you you have to be "one of them" (home grown), "know you're place & rise as your turn comes up."

    Even Cory Booker had to be a councilman.

    This why I fear Jersey City will soon overtake Newark as largest city,simply by the skyscrapers of residencies
    New York & Jersey City by contrast, have diverse new well off residents who vote for you based on your pro business & growth ,qualiry of life ,appreciating values objective ideas, not on whether you served your time pandering to the low income base.
    Offering entitlements & HUD housing. Thats the main reason Newark owns so much vacant land.
    Look at Baxter Park (Former Baxter Terrace) over ONE DECADE just sitting there! Just a modicum was built on the southwest corner.

    Vast stretches along Irvine Turner Boulevard, 7th ave,12th St are off limits to developers due to City land banking for its NHA, or school construction program.

    So I read in the SL that the Rite Aid @ Macy's is closing. Anyone know of any future tenants? That's really nice space.

    This is what the owners of burlington coat factory saw before they turned around and left. Nothing like women fighting with their tits out while I'm shopping

    SMH. The fact that these people just stand there and watch and say "only in Downtown Newark" like its something to be proud of is just sad. This city has so much potential, but this is holding it back. If the ghetto element can just subside we can build a thriving downtown faster than if we allow it to stay.

    Fights occur in every city. Change takes time. You cant deny that Newark has come a long way from what it used to be, even a decade ago. If it didn't, we wouldn't be seeing the nice retail, hotels, apartments, restaurants, like Burlington, French fry heaven, Blaze, Dino, etc opening downtown. Also, there are several projects in the pipeline but they haven't broken ground. When they do break ground, there will be a big change in large areas of DT.

    There will be a hearing for the plans for Bears stadium.
    The hearing will be held on Wednesday, August 10th, beginning at 7:00pm, at Room 506 of the Essex County Hall of Records, located at 465 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in Newark.

    Unfortunate but probably a result of the merger with Walgreens.

    "With respect to Walgreens' plans to acquire Rite Aid, the Illinois-based company will have to divest itself of stores to avoid regulatory scrutiny. In a presentation released in November, Walgreens said its contract provides for divestments up to 1,000 stores, though it expects that the actual number will be less than 500. Either way, it's no easy task as Walgreens has to find "legitimate buyers" at "competitive pricing," which means no fire sales and no closing stores, said Jack Mohr, research director of Action Alerts PLUS."

    Why don't you and the other people who constantly whine about Newark run for office? It sounds like you know how to fix the city , run for office.

    Yet this is the dependable consituency the "old guard" in City Hall seeks more of.
    Burlington Coat Factory should open in the Iron bound,perhaps on the Iberia property with a big sign facing Harrison.

    You guys have that "move them back to Africa so that we can build tall glass buildings and dog parks" mentality that's just frankly sickening. Move them where? Cities are the only type of municipalities that have all the resources necessary to support the poor and disadvantaged. Any new development should plan for the poverty/minimum wage/disadvantaged... that's including fast food and walmart workers, etc. Inclusionary Housing works well for NYC, although we can do without the Poor Door.

    That's what is happening in Nwk. The Verizon building will have 20% affordable housing, i believe Hahnes will have about 40%, other developments around the city will also have a good amount of affordable housing. If you want to see some more developments with affordable housing, go to NCEDC's website.

    Depending on the rent affordable housing attracts the ghetto element. If affordable means much less than crazy NYC/Gold Coast but still way above Hud/Sec. 8 rents then fine. If not then you should be against it. Quality of life issues you know.

    Inclusionary zoning arguably works in Manhattan because nearly everything surrounding them caters to the mid-upper class. Downtown Newark doesn't and that's the problem. Move everything at the Broad/Market intersection to Irvington or nearby and gentrify so these people riding the bus from those areas won't have a reason to come downtown bringing in their ghettoism, scaring nearby hotel travelers at the Courtyard Marriott and Indigo.
