More Parking Now Available Near BMG

parkingWhen you head back to Yeshivah this afternoon, it may be a little easier for you to find a legal space around the Bais Shalom area and make it to Seder on time. The Township has removed the no parking signs along 9th Street between Lexington and Clifton today, making it legal to park on both sides of the road.

  1. The oilam should get together and choose a day to simply begin parking there en masse. Of course, the township will send a ticket brigade at which point the rest of the oilam can pour out and make it an issue. If it works in Yerushalayim…

  2. This is NOT a good thing. Already it’s virtually impossible for two cars coming from opposite directions to pass without slowing to a crawl anywhere between Lex & Clifton in the Bais Sholom area. When will they make one way streets and do us all a favor? How about angle parking? Anyone with some seichel?

  3. To # 2. Your the one that is being selfish. These people live in the area of the yeshiva and have to put up with the traffic and the blocking of driveways day in and day out. The only one who is selfish here is you for not wanting to walk a few blocks because you come late to seder.

  4. let them move they knew what it’s like to live near yeshiva b4 they moved there. i think Donny Rottenberg will be more than happy to sell them a house in westgate after Sheva Brachos!

  5. I saw a firetruck get stuck in the middle of the block last week. He could not go forward, a car turned in from Madison, and he couldn’t go backwards, there were cars in back of him by BMG on Forest. Finally the car from Rt. 9 backed out on to Rt. 9. At least the fire was over. Imagine he is coming to your house and he gets stuck because there is no room to move. Make them one way or no parking on one side.

  6. How come everytime someone complains about yeshivas latest expansion idea causing them inconvenience, there is always some jerk that will say, let them move. Do you think yeshiva owns this town? It may have influence, but there are many people that still live here from before. And even if they moved here afterward, everyone deserves respect and even the yeshiva needs to be considerate to its neighbors. Derch eretz kadma ltorah applies to the worlds biggest yeshiva as well.

  7. Hey # 7. Is this what they teach you in yeshiva. Believe it or not people have lived next yeshiva before they had such a need for parking. Stop putting out your hand like everything is coming to you on a silver platter. Think how things effect others for once.

  8. Make the streets one way from Main St to County LIne. There will more place for parking and the cars will fit thru.

    BTW, I live on Tenth ST. I do not drive down 10th bet. clifton and Lex during Seder. But when I forget, and do, being polite is the only way to get thru. you wait next to a driveway for the opposite car to pass, and he does the same for you. This is not NYC – you can show resepect for other drivers and have some patience!

  9. With my own eyes says: I am with you on that..parking on both sides of some streets in this already congested town makes more problems..some streets at night are already impassible in both directions ..either make more roads one ways or enforce parking on the can not have it both ways. Emergency response is getting harder to do with both sides of the streets bumper to bumper cars. What is next? It is just disgusting thinking this town has gotten so congested in such a short amount of time

  10. I am sorry, I have been a resident of Lakewood for more than 35 yrs and it bothers me that no one cares until something happens ..then the ball gets thrown back in the faces of those that do..Its time to act now

  11. do people realize what’s going on here? my in-laws live on forest ave. near the new b’m. we had to put cones by their driveway so people would not block it with their cars. so someone moved the cone onto the grass so that he could park his van there! they have trouble getting in and out of their own driveway! they have lived there for 35 years! where is the respect? the derech eretz? why don’t you guys car pool to reduce the number of vehicles? why doesn’t bmg have a shuttle service to take you back and forth everyday to reduce the congestion? my family put a note on the van explaining the purpose of the cones and yet he drove away without putting the cone back! what a mentsch!
