I will DEFINITELY be taking the trolley to Fernandes. How far is that stop from the restaurant? I'm also all for this thing starting a little earlier. Two hours might not be enough time for that place.

Not a fan of fake trolleys but good that the service is there. Just make 'em look like regular buses!

What's wrong with fake trolleys? If nothing else, they are more distinct/easier to spot than regular buses.

A yellow bus sticks out from other buses? Really?

Anyway, I'm just wondering why you don't like the fake trolley idea.

Also, got a tip to head over to a bar called Krug's that supposedly had great burgers. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT.

There is a pretty decent thread set up specifically for Food around The Rock that is convenient for anyone interested in checking out many of the local eating establishments.

The atlantic yards will never happen, Nets will be sold, NJ will win the jump ball, and the Nets will play in Newark.

Pretty simple if you ask me...

Sounds good to me!

Hey Geoff,

Welcome to the boards! I've seen you post on Wired New York and we have a couple of posters here who also post over there (thiswontwork, NewarkDevil5, among others).

Good to be a part of it. I hope I can bring some value to the board and learn a thing or two...

Absolutely pained me to have to go back to the site of last night's travesty so soon... but for anyone interested, there was a commercial shoot at the Rock today.

The NYC Market is over-saturated with new sporting venues. NJ Devils and the Pru Center are in the best position due to being first movers while others are struggling with ticket sales, sponsorships, construction financing, etc...

Great idea for the state of NJ to finance a refurb of the IZOD center...

...I agree

The stuff was just put up on the windows over the past week but no inside construction yet. Hopefully a website of something will pop up soon

Actually it has been up there for about a month or so. The building was purchased in March for $1,050,000 including the liquor license valued around $150,000. They are hoping to open mid summer.

Here's an article on the Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle from the old plant in Newark. It is currently in a scrapyard in the Ironbound. The article mentions that Vanderbeek was interested in purchasing the bottle for the entry plaza on Edison Place but plans have been stalled thanks to the rent dispute between the Newark Housing Authority and the Devils. Pabst Bottle

Another thought...

I'm planning out my summer vacation and one of my stops is Columbus and the Arena District around Nationwide Arena is exactly what I have envisioned for around Prudential Center. They saved the old buildings, restored them, and used some as fronts on new buildings, and they built new buildings that look old but are modern. After I go there, I'll have pictures and stuff to say, I'm sure.

Nice so I guess those properties are fully approved for construction. I'm really excited about all of this stuff happening.

You should sell your beach house and open a bar!

You could sell cupcake shooters!!

After careful consideration, I'll keep the beach house lol..

Owning a bar around the Rock would probably be a blast during the season. A liquor license is about 150-200k though.
