Jaynor, I remember a post you made maybe a couple of years back where you stated that "Newark is pretty well off, for the most part ". I couldn't believe what I was reading. Newark is the leader in all the bad things category in NJ. Infant mortality rates, STD and AIDS rates, etc.. One third of all residents are on some form of public assistance, if that's well off I don't even want to know what you're definition of a poor city is. Yes, there has been development but not even close to Jersey City. Baraka wants the city to remain a ghetto. Since 1980 and still waiting for the so called "Renaissance". In other news, has anyone heard about 10 Park Pl being converted into apartments? You know Essex County Welfare moved to the former MBNA call center building at Market & University and they were the only tenant besides some other county agencies offices. This is the building at Park Pl and raps around to Rector St. I believe it was the Fireman Fund Insurance Company building at one time.
