  1. The Elks are a respected organization and must’ve rented out their hall to an outside group for a wedding or other type of party. This is not a usual occurrence.

  2. It may be a wierd place now but this place has been around before any of you decided to build a shul or heimish housing. Be respectfull. They’re parking situation isn’t half as bad as kol shimshon satmar and others. Let’s not pretend to all of a sudden be stupid when it comes to zoning laws.

  3. The Elks club has been there longer than I can remember and I am here more than 30+ years. They let the neighborhood use their waterfront property (Metedeconk River) for Tashlich. They aren’t the brawling type, must’ve been some outsiders.

  4. I know it was here a long time, still, occasionally over the years I have seen unruly, mob like youngsters outside. This area should not be zoned for a club and its time the board looks into this travesty.
    I dont care if it was here for twenty years.

  5. let me try it this way, the zoning or planning board should not have approved the schul accross the street from a club. This should be ok

  6. there is no zoning in Lakewood , why all of a sudden is that an issue?
    as already stated they were here long before just about anyone else that is complaing here. For those who bring up zoning I have a long list of other locations you can check into. Just look arround this town and twell me what zoning laws????

  7. the elks have were there long before the development that surrounds them now. there were only a few houses in the area. there small hall is sometimes rented out. this is not the norm, if people get rowdy outside the solution is simple, police+arrests=quiet resumes.

  8. The real story it was out sider that rented the hall for a priv. Party the elk is not a club so leave them alone not everything in this town has to be jewsh to be ok. Learn to live and let live

  9. Who cares how long the elks have been around?? people wish to live in peace and keep their families safe without brawls near their homes- why are people having a hard time understanding that?

    This that’s its not an everyday occurrence is also something to consider.

  10. I agree that brawls near where you live is a big problem, however how about all the rentals in neighborhood that have created the same problem where their used to be Quiet, Family oriented neighborhoods that now have to deal with very same issue yet the town turns a blind eye to that , just last night I had to put up with partying untli 3:30 in the morning!!! My neighborhood was at one time all families of mix race & nationallity that all got along great and everyone respected the rights of each other. That no longer exists with SOME of the rentals and yet the town will not control this problem !!!!

  11. People should check out a neighborhood before they move in. Its like buying a house by an airport and then say the noise is to much. At least they have a parking lot and don’t park on neighbors lawns.

  12. Hey I’m going to buy my house next to an airport, then complain about the noise and force them to move the airport!!!!!

    The Elks are prime property, look at all the condos that can be squeezed into that spot and I bet the Planning Board will have NO traffic issues either! No one cares about the Elks it is the property that is wanted. So lets start complaining loud and long and force them out!

  13. Why is there a problem when some points out some of the conditions this town tolerates as was in my posting at 12:09 and is still in moderation ? its bad enough that that the town won’t clean up some of the issues with rentals and now for some reason the scoop hesitates to even post comments about those issues and some wonder why there is crime problem in this town well when you bury your head in the sand so you don’t see it you cannot addressit !

  14. You can complain all you want the ELKS are not going anywhere..they were here long before any of us..why should they move..You take that chance of having loud parties..but they don’t come often. I could complain about all the heavy traffic on Sunset Rd, Monmouth Ave, Courtney Ave, Pine St, or any other place where there is a multitude of vehicles or foot traffic..you don’t hear everyone complaining all the time about that do you?
    I think no one will be happy until there are houses from one end of town to the other. I have been in Lakewood for the better part of 40 yrs and I used to love it..Not anymore..its Gridlock from sun up to sundown.

  15. What about these loud party’s in the street that get closed down and no one gets notified that they are they are going to happen? They have large trucks with people in the back and loud speakers all over them. I think everyone should tolerate their neighbor

  16. Dont all you guys realize its always ony one bloger the same one ea. time who is devils adv. stop all you sensitive people getting all wound up. Enjoy your elks, Just remember to say Kiddush Levana the 1st half of the month then maybe there wont be any fights!
