well, they do have more child-friendly uniforms for traffic cops

Fort Lee is a great place, but the downtown is shabby and doesn't reflect it.

I bet if they installed a larger-than-life-size bronze sculpture of the governor setting out some traffic cones, it would really spruce the place up.

Does Fort Lee even have a downtown? It's got a small town main street and a bunch of strip malls. This development is probably the first time Fort Lee has gotten to an identifiable core in a long time.

Fort Lee's not even a city. It doesn't really have a 'downtown'. If anything, what they're creating with these developments will be a 'center' to the borough.

Are those Chris Christie's world-famous traffic cones at the bottom of the photo?

Ground Broken for The Modern’s Second Tower at 100 Park Avenue, Fort Lee

Quote:
By: Evan Bindelglass 8:00 am on April 27, 2016

Residents of Upper Manhattan, particularly Washington Heights and Inwood, will soon see something new rising across the Hudson River. On Monday, groundbreaking was held for the second tower at rental development The Modern, located just a bit south of the George Washington Bridge at 100 Park Avenue in Fort Lee.

This 47-story, 496-foot, glass-clad tower will be a twin of the existing tower, which has been open for years now and is located even closer to the bridge at 800 Park Avenue (formerly Martha Washington Way).

Sitting in between the two towers will be a nearly two-acre public park with water features and walking paths developer SJP Properties says will be “reminiscent of Central Park in New York City.” A 7,000-square-foot restaurant will be in the park and will have both indoor and open-air seating. There will also be a 13,000-square-foot building to be donated to the borough for use as a public theater and museum.

[...]

Great news. I suppose that means that the first tower was a success and Fort Lee's real estate prospects are viewed as a good bet. Twin glass towers will also serve as a monumental and elegant gateway to NJ from I-95.

Gimme a break -- Central Park is nearly 500 times the size of this minature parklet.

Those cones are always there to direct traffic to the right. That entrance to the George Washington Bridge has 3 dedicated toll plaza lanes for the bridge. It is too close to the tolls to reliably integrate the traffic with the rest of the massive highway that feeds the bridge.

Bridgegate was the closing of 2 of the 3 dedicated lanes of the toll plaza, leaving just one single lane for all of Fort Lee and a number of other adjacent towns to get on the bridge. It was claimed to be a traffic study, which gridlocked all of Fort Lee all day (taking 3 hours or more to get from the nearby developments onto the bridge), and was continued on for 4 whole days. Christie tried to dismiss it as a traffic study, but it is widely believed to have been to punish the mayor of Fort Lee, who refused to support Chris Christie's reelection campaign, instead supporting the Democratic challenger.


https://www.sott.net/article/271730-...es-in-Fort-Lee


http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/13/ny...ruse.html?_r=0

Only lane 24 was available to the Fort Lee traffic. They usually have exclusive access to lanes 20 and 22, which were given to the rest of the highway (with suburban Republican voters) instead.


http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/l...-closing-case-

As you can see, traffic is usually backed up quite a bit with all three lanes available. It is clear to see that the traffic study is a ridiculous excuse.

The second tower is growing quickly. Reaching now about 2/3 of its final height.
