Trees Slaughtered for Stone Circle

Back in March, the city cut down a half dozen trees on the corner of Newark and Jersey Avenue. The 18 inch diameter trees weren’t sacrificed for nothing; the city is replacing the decades old trees with a circle of Belgian Blocks.



Atomic Wings Taking Baby Steps

The long awaited Atomic Wings on Newark Avenue has removed the paper from the windows, perhaps in anticipation of opening, or maybe just to tease eager residents. Either way there is now furniture– tables and chairs– inside, as well as refrigerators for sodas.



Legal Beans Gets New Location

Donwtown cafe Legal Beans will soon have a new location just off Newark Avenue on Division Street. The new store is a bit off the beaten path on the far end west side of the downtown, but for many the trek will be well worth the effort.



City Slaughters Trees

Small Development Rises on First Street

A new building is sprouting up on Jersey Avenue at First Street. The site broke ground a few weeks ago and is already well onto a third story. The lot was once used for selling Christmas trees. The site is just off Newark Avenue — the bank of America on Newark Avenue spans the block […]
