Reader says ,” this place is gonna look like Hackensack”


” It’s amazing how so many individuals are so arrogant. How they think they can just walk off the sidewalk into a road without looking how stupid can you be. You got to be the biggest Dummy too do that. That’s for the walkers. For the drivers speed limit should be changed in the CBD. It should be 15 mph. And the damn New Jersey transit buses should not utilize Ridgewood Avenue at all. Let them Use Franklin Ave., Maple Avenue, maybe move the bus station This is not going to work when all these apartment buildings are done we are just too congested. If you think people are getting hit now you just wait and see you have buildings being built right on top of the road on Broad Street Chestnut St., Franklin Avenue and then Maple and Ridgewood Avenue. This place is gonna look like Hackensack. “
