token hispanic: MrStench: chaddsfarkprefect: Jebdiahbob, from your picture, Wawa is in PA.

You're welcome to the rest, just not our Wawa.

Actually, there are Wawas in NJ. In fact, Wawa was originally founded in NJ:

The Company was founded in 1803 in New Jersey, and incorporated in 1865 as the Millville Manufacturing Company, a textile company with mills in several states and sales offices across the country. (new window)

there are many, many wawas in nj, but they don't start till somewhere south of the raritan.

i lived in newark for 6 years for school, but not on campus. it was indeed horrifying, but the new slightly less corrupt mayor is helping a bit.

i worked for the county tho, and judging by how these officials treated the poor half (newark, east orange, etc), it's likely newark is never going to really go anywhere.

don't know how mentioned it . . but um, there aren't any guidos in newark . . .


Well, on the Bloomfield border, the really old ones still sit outside the restaurants and complain about how the city got ruined in the 60s. East Orange isn't nearly as scary as it was when I was growing up, but it's still pretty farking scary.

It's mostly a shiat hole. It really puts into perspective all those snide, anti-southern remarks you people make on here, and gives you away for the morons you really are. It also relieves me to know that your kind is unlikely to ever crawl out of your nasty little ghetto and infect my region with your sickly-looking bodies, disproportionate features and foul, stupid, violence-prone dispositions.

Your region? Your God-fearing, gay-bashing, anti-choice, re-elect-Bush, gun-loving, overweight, rebel-yelling, country-music playing, home-schooling, flat-earth believing, evolution-bashing, region? That region? You're afraid we'll infect you?

That's quite possibly the funniest thing I've heard today.

Thanks!


indeed, hilarious

i think that's the official retired old people passtime around here. east orange certainly isn't as bad as the crappy parts of newark, but it's still not the most pleasent place to hang out.

what i find most amusing about newark is that the ironbound is a really lovely place to hang out, and has some of the most amazing restaurants i've ever been too.

nuggetman: FarkedOver: Anyone know the train fare from Trenton to center city philadelphia?

$8. $9 if you buy it on the train. Which you pretty much have to do, since SEPTA got rid of their ticket machines and rarely have a window open (in fact, I don't think they have one at Trenton at all). However, if you go round trip, you can put in for $2 credit.

SEPTA blows.


Agreed SEPTA does blow. I get screwed into buying a ticket on the train every other week cuz the person doesn't show up to work in the morning to sell tickets or there is police tape across the door. Oh yeah Philly you rock!

I lived in Jersey City (above the palisades, so the bad part) and it was still heaven compared to Newark.

Ever been to a somewhere where the ENTIRE city is a bad neighborhood? I kid you not, there is not a single nice neighborhood in Newark. You can't just "generify" Newark and make it a place where people want to be. 60 years of using it to warehouse very low income and violent people tends to make changes pretty hard. Not to mention where are you going to put 500,000 people that grew up in a warzone? Any of you that know the area know what these places are like. Newark is probably the worst, with Patterson and Elizibeth in right behind them. The cities east of Newark are some of the most expensive real estate in the country, Newark is 2 stops from NYC with classic brownstones and potential galore, but if you can't as a person go to the grocery store without the fear of very real violent crime happening, you simply can not live there.

There is real tension, both economic and racial. The chances of a person being targeted in Newark because of wealth and race are very very real. The joke used to be "fark waldo, people in Newark play where's whitey".

You tout your month without murder as a trophy, when in reality it's simply that it's too bitterly cold for even the Newark scum to slither outside and murder each other in the streets, right now. Wait until the weather brightens and they scrabble outside to sun their pale, withered bodies again. That's when the violence breaks out.

the economic problems in newark are terrible, and somewhat tragic. most of these poor kids don't stand a chance in the piece of shiat schools, not to mention the fact that many come from households already deep problems bigger than poverty.

targeting on wealth, not so sure about that. race, yes, drug reasons, yes . . but the last few years i was there it was basically a civil war amongst themselves, drug driven of course.

Vide Infra: I assume you are on Broad St.?

Yep, 744 - right across from Prudential.

ZannSu: "This is some crazy shiat! Theres white people walking on the streets now! No man, I'm serious! White people!"

The 25 story art deco building across the street from my office was recently converted to luxury apartments. It was a bit surprising at first to see white people walking their dogs etc. On the plus side, it is nice to come out after dark, at least on hockey night, and see people on the street. There's a nice sports bar (Scully's) right outside the side entrance to our building.

Wulfhardt: simply that it's too bitterly cold for even the Newark scum to slither outside

It was 70 last week. Most of NJ, once you get away from the industrial wastelands near the NYC area is similar to the rest of suburban US, except we have good mass transit (if you're going to Philly or NYC). There are parts of the state that are gorgeous. I can drive one hour from my house & be in either 2 major cities, the mountains or the shore. The taxes and corruption though are horrible.

Seriously, Newark still has a lot of problems, but if I had money to invest in real estate, and was prepared to hold it for a few decades, I'd be buying in Newark. Hopefully Booker stays long enough to wash the corruption out before he inevitably moves onto the next big political job.

I grew up right outside of East Orange. I spent many a day in Newark. Patterson and Camden are by far worse. Yea in newark you will get mugged if you aren't paying attention. In Patterson and Camden you will just be randomly assulted for the hell of it.

And calling the Heights "the bad part" is somewhat relative. I live in the "bad" part of hoboken, our condo's are only 600k.

First, The Heights isn't the bad area of Jersey City. Greenville and Bergen-Lafayette are and they are on the opposite side of town.

I went to school in Newark for a year and a half and about the worst thing I saw was some fat girl beating a up a guy (black on black) for some reason. Even on the nights where I took a wrong turn, it was just desolate residental blocks. While, there probably is some racist crimes committed against whites they really would have to be looking for trouble, as there really is no reason for a white person to travel on foot outside the downtown area and the Ironbound.

Still I'd take the bad parts of Newark over Camden, now thats a warzone.
