Ridgewood’s Central Business District Hosts “Welcome Back to Ridgewood”

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, “Welcome Back to Ridgewood, NJ” event – This event will run through the summer season. – Monday through Friday, all retail businesses are able to place their products on tables outside of their business (once they obtain a permit from the Village).  All food places are permitted to have outdoor dining (once they obtain a permit from the Village).  Food is also available for pickup at the dining establishments.  Beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday through 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, the Central Business District from North Walnut Street to Broad Street will be closed to vehicular traffic along East Ridgewood Avenue, including the side streets of Oak Street, Prospect Street, and Chestnut Street, which will create a pedestrian mall.

The retail businesses and outdoor dining in this area will be moved into the streets.  Pedestrians will walk on the sidewalks in one direction (the same direction as vehicular traffic-arrows are painted on the sidewalks as a reminder) in order to maintain social distancing (with white painted dots placed 6 feet apart).  All of our businesses and restaurants have signed a pledge to adhere to the CDC guidelines , so customers can shop and dine with confidence in Ridgewood’s Central Business District.  Masks are strongly encouraged at this event and are always required to enter any businesses.

  3. They should’ve been doing this 10 years ago. And free parking. Then you will have more people utilizing the CBD instead of the mall.

  4. Bad idea….. tables are getting closer, pedestrians walking by aren’t wearing masks and are two feet from the guests eating. Nope

  6. I don’t support any of these white racist businesses in Ridgewood, because all whites (and capitalists) are racist.
    .
    That’s what my teacher taught me with the new 1619 curriculum.

    I’m so glad I’ve been enlightened.
    All theses years I thought I was a good, kind open person only to find out that I am a white privileged racist.
