Despite Calls For More Parking Ridgewood Merchants Continue to take Prime Spots

the satff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, The President of The Ridgewood Guild is Mr. Tony Damiano.  Posturing as an important dignitary in town, claims that businesses which might have come to Ridgewood opted out because there was insufficient parking. 

The current council set up a system whereby employees would be directed to park in sections of the Cottage Place and Walnut Street lots, thereby freeing up valuable on-street spots in front of stores and restaurants.  And yet Damiano parks his own vehicle in prime on-street spots every day, as seen in this photograph. 

If you think this is a one-off, you are wrong.  We have at least 15 more photos of his car in various NON-EMPLOYEE prime spots on North Broad, near his store.   Damiano was a big promoter of the Hudson Garage (Aronsohn Version) yet refused to work with the new administration when the “3 amigos ” left office .

Ridgewood NJ, yesterday in Ridgewood at the official groundbreaking ceremony of the Hudson Street Parking garage . the event was greeted with a protester .

Which begs the questions where are all the critics of residents Steven Kim and Saurabh Dani , all the “if you don’t like it move” and how dare you question the great and powerful Ridgewood Public Library or Ridgewood Board of Education ?

Where are the big mouths? Where are the know-it-alls? And lets not forget all the “you should pay higher taxes, so I can move out of here” types?

Once again emphasizing the , it is OK to bully certain people for certain ideas but not others .

And of course if you in the in crowd , you have carte blanche even if you come off as an ignorant bigot?
