In Topic: After 5 Years and $12 Million Spent...

^I seriously doubt that is the issue.



I disagree, money is obviously being spent on low income housing like wildfire while no movement is made on a zero dollar generating park in a stadium that is about to lose its NBA team with very slim chance of another team coming

A little out of the way but in the same city, Blockheads hair cuts is closed I think or is restaggering their already staggered summer hours as I drove by at 3pm and saw a closed sign.. they already have summer hours of 11-7pm

Again folks you can't just day dream that redevelopment is going to happen. YOu have to plan things very carefully... anyone that followed my ID by now knows I've been calling out all these stores that are opening up with 0 to no business model on top of all the crime.

I had heard about Port 44 closing, but Scully's too? That's a big shock, even if it is just for a year while new ownership gets sorted out (though that sounds like a slow painful death rather than a quick one).

And 60 Park? Well, I guess 60 Park shouldn't surprise me. I went there with a handful of friends a couple times and we always more than doubled the number of patrons in the place. Shame. It had a lot of potential.

I had never heard of City Chop House. Did anyone else? If Scully's and 60 Park can't make it work, then a place like that probably wouldn't have either.


oh man i was half asleep when i read this... scully's is that irish place on clinton ave right?

That is a massive blow! I remember it opening when I lived in 1180 and that place would have a decent crowd on a devil's game night... now imagine that closed think how Uber Burger is going to last and they don't even come close to pulling the same size crowd.

Its reality.

I'm waiting for Uber Burger and the coffee place to close.. a place can't survive with a light crowd 1-2 days out of the week and dead emtpy all the rest. Once the tax cuts are gone these shops are going to close.. further proving enough people do not live downtown for these businesses to survive.

Two words: League affiliation.


Never going to happen as new spots aren't being opened. The only way an affiliation would happen is if a minor league team is bought out and brought to newark. Affiliations work just like liquor licenses or NY taxi drivers licenses.


With the operating losses and debt and what seems like very poor management, this isn't going to happen especially with the Yankees and Mets 30 minutes away.
