The Village of Ridgewood Has Installed New Parking Kiosks on North Broad Street

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, the Village has installed new parking kiosks on North Broad Street (on the Dunkin Donuts side), which use a touch screen.  We are hoping that this will make it easier for those parking to be able to pay at the kiosk, as it is more intuitive.   In the next couple of weeks, the kiosk on the train station side of North Broad Street will also have a touch screen.  

Below is a video of how to use the new touch screen kiosk.

The Village is also placing the video on the Village website.

“An open letter to the Village Council re the news that the Gap is closing:

Anne Taylor gone. Jos. Banks, gone. Now the Gap closing. Empty storefronts. Potholed Streets. Vanity and wasteful projects that don’t seem to end. Indirect taxes on the rise. A parking situation that is a joke. On, and on, and on….

When will you have the decency and intellectual honesty to admit the damage you are causing to our beloved town?

Rurik Halaby”

Ridgewood NJ, just a reminder Mr. Halaby was a huge supporter of the Aronsohn administration and its sell out to developers , ringing the central business district with high density housing . The high density housing and the impending increase in residents , traffic and parking will lead to a need for an increase in public safety personnel, road construction, parking, water  , sewage and school construction . That means the consequence of allowing over development will be that taxes will continue to spiral upwards driving more people from the Village and your property values will continue to be depressed .

Mr Halaby was also part of the group that wanted to clear cut Schedler Park and build a turf baseball field .

Ridgewood NJ, this is being reported on many Ridgewood related Facebook pages, “One of my neighbors asked me to share this news. Their car was stolen last night from their driveway on Woodside Avenue. The car was parked around 9:40 pm last night near their garage. The end of their driveway was blocked by their other car. The car was not locked but the key was not inside. Somehow the thief was able to start the car and reverse it over their front yard since the driveway was blocked.

Please be sure to lock your cars. And do not leave anything valuable in your cars. Stay safe!”
