    I wasn't sure where to post this thread, but I thought I would throw this out at the family.

    The New Jersey Devils have broken ground to build a new state of the art arena in the heart of downtown Newark New Jersey. Some of the local residents have expressed concerns that the needs of the community would be better served by building more schools and after school programs.

    That being said, with a name like the Devils, coming to a chocolate city, I would say the hand writing is on the wall

    This is why I said the handwriting is all the wall. Their building a major sports arena in the midst of people living in poverty? Gentrification... Hello.

    That means you need to buy all the property you can, while you still can.

    Precisely, unfortunately most of the brothas and sistahs in the area are not in that position.

    Many people who think they are not qualified for mortages are brother Sekhemu. I know this for a fact, because I sell Real Estate in Jersey. There are lenders who take people 1 day out of bankruptcy & credit scores as low as 500. If you know anyone who wants to buy a home in Newark, pass on their information.
