Article About the Construcion

April-May-June  July-October  Nov-June


Bob and Eileen Albert own the Court Tavern on Church Street in New Brunswick. If your lookng for a sympathetic bartender to listen to your problems and pat you on the back, maybe this isn't the place for you. On the other hand, if you can handle some abuse from some bartenders who understand your demons because they have more than a few of their own, I'm sure you'd be welcome. Their motto is Cruel but Fair.

I am taking a picture from three angles and posting them at this site. I probably won't make it every day, but I'm going to try to update it at least three times a week with some comments.


04/08/04 Construction begins at the lot next to, and behind my local bar the Court Tavern. 04/08/04 I'm taking the first two pictures from parking space 81, five feet back from the wall, two feet from the left yellow line in the parking deck across from the Court. The third picture is taken across the street behind the Court.

The bartender says that a couple of construction guys stopped in for lunch today. They're planning on taking 50 to 100 trucks of debris out a day.

The projected effect on business: They may get some of the constuction guys in for lunch and a couple of guys after work for a couple of beers, but parking is going to be hell with the two lots being torn up and the spaces on the side of the Court boarded off. The parking deck across from the Court, owned by the developer who is building the building next to the Court, used to be free after five. A few days after consturction began, they began to charge five dollars a night on Friday and Saturday. This policy has since been expanded to Wednesday and Thursday, so it is increasingly difficult to park for free in New Brunswick.This  has deifnetley affected their business, I know of a few people who won't go into New Brunswick anymore because it too much of a hassel. I think it's affecting other businesses as well..



 Finally some progress 11-07-04



11-20-04 Check out the facny new sign.






12-29-04 The last shot is from the place I originally started to take the pictures from, just to give a perspective








01-26-05 I've got to find another location for the third shot because the job site is growing away from the place I was taking the pictures. It came out way too dark today but it's a dreary overcast day in NJ.




 01-28-05 I've taken the third picture from the original location.
