Don't worry, things will get better. With the inevitable legalization of marijuana coming soon, we'll all be thankful to have a bong shop and White Castle so close to home.

People...you need to seriously stop beating the dead horse! Wegmans, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's ....have ZERO interest in this town. It has ZERO to do with who screams the loudest, who has the most Facebook 'likes", or 'population density'. It has to do with the 'density' of people's wallets and bank accounts. East Brunswick is an 'island' of moderately higher median income ...surrounded by towns with significantly lower incomes. Their collective populous outnumbers that of East Brunswick ...and that is what retail store planners look at. Trust me, I've done retail construction, store planning, and investigative real estate "potential-site" studies for 30 years. And, having a Walmart in this town WILL impact the possibility of the aforementioned stores even looking here, because their larger potential consumer base is one that has lower over-all income and will be drawn to there.

I moved to EB a year ago from Brooklyn. I love it here. EB has issues, and you'll see, I don't have many complains so far (see last paragraph)... What I enjoy seeing in this town, is a willingness of residents to take actions. There is a sense of a community here that I've never experienced before, even living in the USSR ;o) Even on the road, I don't have an urge to speed, or to cut or honk at another driver who didn't use a signal changing lane. When we moved (family of 4), we quickly adopted: stores are plenty and a selection of organic, non-GMO produce keeps our vegan family happy enough. TJ would be a big + but... it's their loss. Hooters, Twisted Kilt and such are like a blemish on the city's overall appeal. I'd rather see the space they occupy being used by other businesses. But it keeps good parents aware, and promotes them to a necessary conversations with their teens. Garbage pick-ups are awesome, but neighbor's participation with the leaf collection would eliminate necessity to use heavy force (which was probably delayed due to Sandy). What would be nice is to see a wider selection of inet providers (ComCast is getting costly). I would like to know that my kids will have a priority when they try to find a summer job in EB. Lastly, EBPatch should be more active in promoting conversations such as this one. It should also introduce itself to a new residents via mail (I knew about EBP from a neighbor, I'm sure most residents don't even know about EBP).

I would build another flea market. It could be in one of othe empty large stores already on route 18. We all miss it. The other one closed about 5 years ago, and for nothing . There are none close by anymore. Thank you

When is the White Castle going to start construction. Does anyone know? It was approved last summer. Thank you
