The full “pink moon” will be glowing in the sky on Tuesday, April 11. It will be the fourth full moon on the 2017 lunar calendar and the first full moon of spring in the northern hemisphere. Below are some facts about the 2017 pink moon, when it will be visible and how it got its name.

When to see it

If the night sky is clear, people in New York City will be able to see the so-called pink moon rising in the eastern sky on Tuesday at 8:01 p.m., people in Newark and Atlantic City will see it rising at 8:02 p.m., and those in Philadelphia will see it start to rise at 8:05 p.m.

Commuter Alert : NJ TRANSIT service changes for Tuesday, March 14th

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ,  Out of an abundance of caution and safety, NJ TRANSIT is making service changes for Tuesday, March 14th due to the forecasted severe winter weather expected to hit the region.  NJ TRANSIT encourages all customers to prepare their transportation needs in advance of the storm, if they must travel.

All Bus and Access Link service will begin shutting down at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday morning.  Customers should expect those services to remain suspended for the duration of Tuesday’s service day.  Service is anticipated to resume on Wednesday as weather and road conditions allow.

All but one rail line will operate on a weekend schedule on Tuesday for as long as weather conditions allow trains to operate safely.  Customers should be aware that weekend rail service does not extend west of Raritan on the Raritan Valley Line, west of Dover on the M&E Line or west of Bay Street on the Montclair-Boonton Line.  Please Note: The Atlantic City Rail Line will operate on a regular weekday schedule.  Pascack Valley Line trains will add Teterboro and Woodcliff Lakes stops and Train 2125 will operate as a local making all station stops.

Hudson-Bergen Light Rail will operate on a weekend schedule with the addition of service, operating every 20 minutes, between Tonnelle Ave. and Hoboken Terminal.  Newark Light Rail will operate on a Saturday schedule.  RiverLINE service will operate on a Sunday schedule.

Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect:  To give customers additional travel options – if they must travel – during expected winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full systemwide cross-honoring, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, light rail, PATH or ferry.  As a reminder, on Tuesday, March 14th all bus service will be suspended.  For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass or ticket on the train from Rutherford to New York Penn Station.  Similarly, customers who normally take the bus between Atlantic City and Lindenwold may use the Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge.  NY Waterway and Billybey ferries will accept NJ TRANSIT tickets and passes.

All customers are strongly advised to check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip. NJ TRANSIT will have a special winter storm section on the homepage of its website.

NJ TRANSIT will continue to monitor the weather conditions and impacts to services as the storm progresses.  For the latest travel information, customers should visit njtransit.com, access NJ TRANSIT’s Twitter feed at @NJTRANSIT or listen to broadcast traffic reports.  Additionally, NJ TRANSIT will provide the most current service information via the My Transit alert system (www.njtransit.com/mytransit), which delivers travel advisories for your specific trip to your smartphone. Service information is also available by calling (973) 275-5555.

Rail and light rail crews and equipment are on standby to quickly respond to downed trees, power outages or other issues that may arise.  In addition, NJ TRANSIT will be positioning locomotives at strategic locations across the rail system to rapidly respond in the event of a disabled train.  NJ TRANSIT’s employee Emergency Response Team will be at Newark Penn Station, Secaucus Transfer and Penn Station New York to assist customers who must travel on Tuesday.

Parking on Chestnut Street, Ridgewood 6:00 AM Tuesday 5/24/16

6:00 AM chestnut street

I wish people would take photos of parking spaces all over town on different days of the week, ordinary and holiday, and at different times to show in aggregate that parking IS AVAILABLE. A large number of photos documented at various times and days of the week would tell the story. Walking a couple of blocks is good for your health! And unless you’re going to a Hudson St. or S. Broad Street venue, you’ll walk a couple of blocks (or much more) from the garage anyway. Please VOTE NO on June 21 and get an absentee ballot if you can’t.

Statewide Cellphone crackdown starts Tuesday

THE RECORD

Cellphone yakkers and texters, beware!

Starting on Tuesday, hundreds of New Jersey police departments will be focusing on distracted-driving in a crackdown that is likely to yield more cellphone and texting tickets than have the token campaigns of the past.

The reason: For the first time, the state is putting federal money into this offensive, which means police in 60 communities, including Englewood Cliffs, Hillsdale, Paramus, Ramsey, Hawthorne and West Milford, will each be earning overtime pay to conduct distracted driving patrols. In the past, this strategy has been confined only to seatbelt and drunken-driving enforcement.

“But this year, the feds are encouraging the states to do more,” said Gary Poedubicky, acting director of the state Division of Highway Traffic Safety. “We don’t have enough to fund every town, but it’s a start.”
