HEY JIMBO, Wake -up U dumb-a--,how the heck r u gonna make up 9 million!!!!!!!!! That's the onlyRead More question here not some ahole Idea about historic value. It's all about the math u divide up the property and see what tax rate will fit the task. I doubt that living space will do, commercial rates will come closer.

I feel it is way too early for Preservation Partnership weigh in on what type of replacement theyRead More DON’T want to see on the site once it is sold. The ideal replacement would be a multi-billion dollar company willing to build a corporate headquarters and employ thousands of people but the reality is that in the economy that may not be an option. The Roche site no direct access from Rt 3 West, is approximately 10 miles away from the Willow Brook Mall and 5 miles away from the American Dream Meadowlands complex which is scheduled to open the Fall of 2013. This is not an attractive site for large retail development. There is a significant inventory of vacant warehouse/flex space in the North Jersey area due to over building, company downsizing, and relocation. This inventory would have to be significantly reduced over the next few years to make this possibility. In looking a list of some of the local higher education campus in the area I think it’s doubtful that any of them has the desire and financial means to acquire, relocate and develop project of this size. The point I’m trying to make is, before the Preservation Partnership or any other group digs their heels in the ground with a “Not In My Backyard” stance against subdividing, housing, retail or any other type of development they need to be aware that there are not many long term options and to rule out, and rally people against anything, this early in the process is shortsighted.

I agree, we need the tax revenue. Look what happened to ITT. Clfton built the stores, Nutley builtRead More condos and houses. Clifton has the last laugh. They got the tax revenue and Nutley got the traffic and riff raff.

Hint.... It takes aprox 7 minutes from the time you enter a post until it appears on the site, soRead More don't reenter it if you don't see it right away.

A timely article written by Eric Kasum and posted on the Huffington Post:Read More http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-kasum/columbus-day-a-bad-idea_b_742708.html Columbus Day? True Legacy: Cruelty and Slavery Once again, it's time to celebrate Columbus Day. Yet, the stunning truth is: If Christopher Columbus were alive today, he would be put on trial for crimes against humanity. Columbus' reign of terror, as documented by noted historians, was so bloody, his legacy so unspeakably cruel, that Columbus makes a modern villain like Saddam Hussein look like a pale codfish. Question: Why do we honor a man who, if he were alive today, would almost certainly be sitting on Death Row awaiting execution? If you'd like to know the true story about Christopher Columbus, please read on. But I warn you, it's not for the faint of heart. Here's the basics. On the second Monday in October each year, we celebrate Columbus Day (this year, it's on October 11th). We teach our school kids a cute little song that goes: "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." It's an American tradition, as American as pizza pie. Or is it? Surprisingly, the true story of Christopher Columbus has very little in common with the myth we all learned in school. Columbus Day, as we know it in the United States, was invented by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal service organization. Back in the 1930s, they were looking for a Catholic hero as a role-model their kids could look up to......
