the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, The Village Council has approved free parking, with a 3-hour limit, in all parking lots in the Central Business District and in the Hudson Street Garage, on the Saturdays leading up to Christmas, December 5th, 12th, and 19th.  Please be aware that the parking area at the intersection of Broad Street and East Ridgewood Avenue (where the Christmas tree is located) and the parking area on the west side, with the entrance by MacMurphy’s Restaurant, are not considered parking lots, and you must pay to park in these locations.  The main parking lot at the train station (with the majority of the parking spaces), going into the parking lot from the traffic light and turning left, is free parking.  In addition, if you park on the streets, you must pay to park.

  5. I haven’t paid for parking since they go rid of the meters. Quick trip around block – if I don’t see a parking enforcement vehicle, I just park and run my errand. I don’t park long – took any longer term parking business to Glen Rock where it is not such a hassle and I don’t have to use a confusing parking station or an app of which I am unsure of security connected to my credit card.

    This is interesting. Yesterday, a representative from the health department in doing a contact trace on one of my kids told me that “testing doesn’t matter”. That was her literal quote.
    If that is the case – what the hell are we doing? No one has any idea what they are doing regarding this virus. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Incredible.

    My question is WHY? I was literally told YESTERDAY by a contact tracer at the health department that “testing doesn’t mean anything, it doesn’t matter”. Verbatim.
    No one has any idea what they are doing as it relates to this virus. Now I read the CDC is going to shorten quarantine to 7-10 days? Wait, what?

  11. Anon – Maybe the testing eases people’s anxiety…?

    Stay healthy by exercising….it’s the best defense.
