Palisades View Problem - My9 New Jersey

Palisades View Problem

Posted: Updated:
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Benefactors and members of the Metropolitan Museum of Art are at the forefront of protesting and trying to prevent the construction of a new LG headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey because they say it’s going to ruin their view.

Dr. David Goldberg with Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory discussed the rich geographic history of the Palisades. He said that 200 million years ago the Earth was one continent known as Pangaea which was broken up due to subterranean plate activity and thus created the beautiful cliffs coated with mineral rich lava that are now part of the Palisades.

While there are many people opposed to this new construction, some think that it will help bring about 2,000 jobs to New Jersey.

Meanwhile, LG has been granted special permission to violate traditional zoning laws of 35 feet and allow the building of this 143 foot tall building they call “green”.

In 1933 John D. Rockefeller Jr. donated 700 acres of prime Palisades’ land, just so no one could build on it and Larry Rockefeller joined in on the protest of this new construction at the ground breaking event to try and make sure that this stands true.

Right now this construction project has been appealed in court and if it’s overturned the new project could be halted until a compromise is met.

    California based Oaksterdam University believes marijuana is the next big industry and this weekend they brought their classes to the Bally's Casino in Atlantic City to teach people the techniques and laws behind growing marijuana. Since 2007 Oaksterdam has taught over 20,000 students how to grow marijuana and their dean, Dr. Aseem Sappal, believes that legalization is inevitable so it makes sense to be prepared.

    New Jersey Transit bus commuters have consistently been complaining about late buses, and only recently NJT has really begun working to fix the problem. NJT has been using new data that shows that buses only show up on-schedule 68% of the time. In June, the transit system said that buses were on-schedule 86% of the time, but their previous method for measurement wasn't quite up-to-par.
