    said Esmeralda Diaz Cameron a city spokeswoman said Newark would love to have the New Jersey Nets call the city of Newark home Sure some of it is just that good old fashioned brand of trash talk that only you only find in New Jersey But I particularly love the on message feel of Ms Cameron s statement it s wonderfully positive and polished without revealing any information that isn t meant to be public I hope they pay her well While light on inside information the title is pure speculation a Jersey Journal piece also published today would throw water on Ratner s column The Nets may stay in Jersey after all Ratner had hoped to move the team into the New York home for the 2009 2010 season but there is no way the arena will be ready In fact the entire Atlantic Yards project is progressing very slowly The Nets owner is facing a very tough credit market that is getting tighter every week A bleak economy will only continue to hurt the prospects of the Brooklyn development It is the perfect time for New Jersey interests to put on a full court press and have the NBA squad become the second tenant in Newark So stacking up against the arena in Brooklyn are local opposition tight credit markets and increasing construction costs and legal battles only add to the costs as deal maker Goldman Slacks can t find funding until Forest City Ratner can close the books on their court cases But according to this New York Sun piece moving to Newark might not be a slam dunk either Getting the Nets into Vanderbeek s building is simple on paper but it is also extremely complicated because of how revenues generated inside his building are distributed Ratner would need access to monies from luxury boxes club seats and in arena concession areas Vanderbeek would theoretically have to give up lucrative revenue streams from NBA games that he would normally keep from non Devils events in the building But Ratner could not financially survive without getting the lion s share of those revenues As I read it Ratner purchased the Nets for the purpose of getting leverage to begin a building project in Brooklyn the centerpiece of which would be the Barclay s Center arena Due to legal delays and increased costs the developer has scaled the project back to phases the first of which will be the arena planned to begin later this year and the last of which will be completed in 2018 Booker and Vanderbeek are reportedly hoping to find investors to bring the Nets to Newark which would be fantastic for the city for fans the team and its investors But in order to do that Ratner has to be selling The question really lies in whether the Atlantic Yards project can move forward without the Nets Nobody s going to build an arena without a team to play there and it s

    to thrive Broad Street without Starbucks is a collection of shuttered shops discount clothing stores and carts selling bootleg DVDs The store offered a touch of badly needed class to the city s major thoroughfare By no means should the mayor be offering economic incentives to keep Starbucks but the city should have been seeking to bring the store some brand name company in the eight years since it opened in order to make sales more robust Booker has made that a priority and should continue to do so but not at the cost of crushing places like Caffe or Ward s Logos in short are where tax revenues come from which is where the money to rebuild Newark comes from Look at where Newark would be without the brand name presence of companies like Prudential or Horizon Newark deserves Main Street services but must work to balance the interests of national chains and the importance of unique local stores if it wants to suceed Like Like Reply zemin says August 5 2008 at 9 30 pm Just for some ha ha s In the Newark Public Library one can find a movie Starbucking featuring a Mr John Winter who has visited 6 000 Starbucks worldwide since 1997 Mr Winter has compiled possibly the most comprehensive list of responses towards the closures of 600 Starbucks in his website http www starbuckseverywhere net Newark s response has been very unusual I was told by an employee at the Broad Street store that the regional manager was surprised by the stir surrounding the closure in Newark Like Like Reply Donna says August 6 2008 at 2 39 am I m surprised about the brouhaha over the Broad Street Starbucks being put on the closure list These things are bound to happen when large chains that monopolize a particular product simply peak and cannot grow in any more meaningful ways The signs were all there Starbucks buying other coffee chains to maintain its growth then trying to market its coffee through fast food chains McDonald s I think and now closing down stores While I can understand people s disappointment a little I m a tea drinker myself in losing that store I think it s better to aggressively recruit up and coming restaurants or other types of retailers that are doing things differently are run well unlike the Old Navy and have a good future ahead of them At least The Children s Place is still on Broad Street And that corner location might make tempting bait for a bank branch especially a community or regional bank that didn t lose its mind and morals during the housing expansion The landlord and the city will figure out something Like Like Reply L Craig Schoonmaker says August 6 2008 at 7 27 am Did anyone else notice that the name of the outgoing Starbucks President is Jim ALLING like the long ago Newark furniture company and street near Nwk Penn Station I wonder

York Times editorializes the closing of the Starbucks at Market and Broad citing its opening eight years ago as a herald of the city s resurgence Joe Hallinan regional vice president says the branch has actually been losing money Now that the company has hit tough times he says there is no alternative but to include the outlet among the 600 that the company will close Perhaps But the area shows strong signs of growth A luxury apartment building is almost filled and construction is about to begin on a new residential loft building The recently opened arena the Prudential Center is bringing people in on nights and weekends Author Ken Walker Posted on August 3 2008 Categories Starbucks Tags Business Development News Clips Opinion Starbucks 7 Comments on Cold Coffee To Starbucks a Closing To Newark a Trauma To Starbucks a Closing To Newark a Trauma The Times article points out that there are two additional Starbucks franchises in the city that aren t in the airport Sure one store is nestled in the series of interconnected tubes that conjoin the Gateway Center buildings like a giant hamster cage The other is on the Rutgers campus which I m not entirely sure is a real Starbucks serving their mixed drinks and trained by Starbucks employees Any number of retail coffee shops proudly brew Starbucks coffee without actually being a Starbucks and by that criteria you could include the coffee shop in the NJIT student center as well The point isn t so much a loss of the product as it is a loss of the brand Corporate sponsorship of a streetscape is for many people customers and investors alike a kind of shorthand about the quality of retail and safety of that street That might raise the ire of some and it makes me a little uneasy being an independent blogger but it s true seeing a company like a Starbucks or a Kinko s or an Old Navy means those companies did their due diligence to consider actuarial risk and profitability If they decide a neighborhood is worth investing in it legitimizes that neighborhood All of that is to say nothing of the subconscious comfort of seeing a familiar brand in a strange place When visitors come to the city and find their favorite coffee shop it makes them feel less unsettled about that place Especially if that new place is rumored to have zombies Sure we get to keep the remaining two or three Starbucks coffee shops for those of us who need a local latte fix but the city is losing that perception of growth safety and familiarity at its most important crossroads Or maybe it s just a coffee shop and another will take its place and we ll forget this whole thing But you ll have to excuse me I m on my morning commute and I have to pick up my grande iced coffee What do you think Register your opinion in our poll Should Newark Save Starbucks But every store as it turns out is not quite the same When a Starbucks opened on Broad Street here almost eight years ago it was not seen as a bland new spigot of a corporate coffeepot but as a gathering place whose very existence would have seemed impossible a decade before a symbol of a knocked down city s attempts to get up A few miles away in New York City new Starbucks branches were sometimes greeted with yawns or even annoyance that the national chain was invading neighborhoods In Newark Sharpe James then the mayor showed up for the opening So when Starbucks announced last week that the Broad Street branch would be among the 600 stores that the coffee company is closing around the country the reaction here was especially emotional a mixture of anger disappointment and frustration They re not going to close the one on Wall Street one man exclaimed Author Ken Walker Posted on July 23 2008 Categories Uncategorized Tags Business Development Downtown Central Ward News Clips Starbucks 3 Comments on To Starbucks a Closing To Newark a Trauma Should Newark Save Starbucks democracy 4 The Starbucks in downtown Newark is set to close as a result

    walk in the evening well maintained single family homes A city builds on these kinds of neighborhoods as much as on a big downtown miles away from them A city has to treat them almost as separate entities to be protected nurtured It s a challenge to do it without neglecting other parts of the city But it has to done Like Like Reply Matt C says August 14 2007 at 1 20 pm You will never have a safe neighborhood without male authority figures That s why anyone in Newark with hope for their future or their kids futures should just get out and live somewhere better Newark s population has fallen and it has rightly fallen Let s go out on a wild limb and assume that the ghetto population will never get their problems straightened out In order for things to change the growth in Newark s healthy neighborhoods Ironbound wherever relocated New Yorkers may move to needs to increase while the number of residents in the horrible neighborhoods keeps falling When the balance of voting power gets to a point where someone like Mayor Booker can bank on being re elected for his efforts to clean up the city then Newark has a chance So for the sake of the long term health of Newark keep that population dropping New York City didn t improve in the nineties because the ghettos righted themselves It improved because Giuliani cracked down on crime which encouraged businesses and non ghetto residents to set up shop in the city These new residents demand neighborhood safety and the virtuous cycle feeds on itself Like Like Reply EAS says August 14 2007 at 3 58 pm http cityroom blogs nytimes com 2007 06 28 newark rises but not like phoenix Like Like Reply saint says August 14 2007 at 5 28 pm FYI Unlike most of North Jersey Newark s population has increased since the 2000 Census Also while 9 11 certainly helped canonize Giuliani he played a very small role in the lowering of crime The work of his predecessors particularly in attracting major corporations to invest in midtown played a bigger role Aside from his courage in 9 11 he ll be remembered as someone who trampled rights particularly of artists and the like during his tenure Much of Booker s effort has been on luring businesses to Newark Let s see how effective his strategy is Like Like Reply Matt C says August 14 2007 at 6 57 pm Saint Whatever you think of Giuliani don t downplay what he did for the city Your example doesn t even make sense Let s assume that Dinkins did attract major corporations That doesn t mean he had anything to do with the crime drop Giuliani cleaned up Times Square of all the slime through the force of his will more or less If you think Times Square was going to be as nice as it is whether or not he did that you re quite wrong If you think that anyone s going to remember or care that he supposedly trampled artists rights you re even more mistaken Nobody cares about artists What rights are you talking about anyway Like Like Reply Los Anjalis says August 14 2007 at 8 46 pm Disclaimer though I live in los angeles now I moved here from Newark where I lived for 5 years and I feel very connected to the city I ll admit that I find most of the comments on this thread openly racist and completely out of touch with the real world Now that i ve got your attention and your hate the commentors talk about how it ll be ok because residents will be priced out and have to move out of the city the talk about how those who didn t have the foresight to invest in Newark are going to be pushed out etc That s code word for Let s get the poor black people out of the city and make it better Other comment sentiments There s business to be made in Newark and why should we care about the people who actually reside there It s their responsibility to find a way to make things work and they haven t the personal responsibility argument so well there s good land there and it s our turn to develop it good going guys ameer washington and bob braun talk about the issues and what really needs to be done and these are the replies they get On a related note thanks ameer washington and bob braun we need more people talking about how a latte a dance troupe and a stadium will not make real change for the people of newark Like Like Reply Matt C says August 14 2007 at 9 05 pm Los Anjalis I don t really care if you think I m a racist although I know I m not the only one you re

it has to get whiter and it doesn t even necessarily mean it has to get richer but it does have to become less scary and if you think I m racist for thinking Newark is scary I still don t care It s been 40 years since the riots and Newark has accomplished remarkably little positive in that time even as we ve had 25 straight years of a great national economy So yes if I was going to bet on a Newark turnaround it would not be because the ghettos improved themselves Cory Booker is the best thing to happen to Newark in who knows how long and Newark residents are wary of him because he
