The Township Committee informally agreed Monday to continue considering plans to redevelop an old salvage yard into a 97-acre waterfront property including a transit village of 685 townhomes and retail stores.   Representatives of Bordentown Waterfront Community LLC, which has offices in Princeton, took about an hour to lay out the plans at the Monday night committee meeting, complete with multiple visual aids, aerial maps and computer-generated visions of how the project will look when completed.   The property, which extends into Fieldsboro and Mansfield, but mostly lies in Bordentown Township, encompasses 97 acres including a portion of Newbold Island, and had been used until the 1980s as a shipyard. Vessels would make their way up the Delaware River to be torn apart, and scrap metal...

BOOKS BACK IN BORDENTOWN! By: Cara Latham, Staff Writer 04/12/2007 Library reopens after four years    BORDENTOWN CITY - City resident Jane Method's family used to spend Friday nights reading together at Barnes and Noble.   But now, they will have somewhere closer, and more personable to go - the Bordentown Branch of the Burlington County Library System on East Union Street, which opened 10 a.m. Monday after being closed for four years for renovations.   "Now, I think we'll spend Friday nights here," Ms. Method said, as she walked through the aisles on the basement floor of the library Monday. One of her daughters sat next to her on the floor, already diving into a book. Her family, she said, is looking forward to coming here after school and during the summer.   "It's been a long wait,...

Hi everyone, I just opened my "Realtor Magazine"  An article regarding David Lereah's latest book, ALL REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL.  I love it!  The title of the article is "What's your area's DNA?"  So my goal is to buy the book and start a Blog to gather details on Bordentown's DNA - sounds fun, but should inform the consumer.  It is a good time to buy and sell in Bordentown.  Our Market is "HOT!" Any comments on Bordentown's DNA-  POST HERE-THANKS!

Our Local Mortgage rep was just in our office.  The mortgage industry isn't as bad as the News is saying.  You can still get a mortgage the standards are just a little tougher.  You would be amazed where people can find money for downpayments ect.  Educate your consumers - it is possible.  If people think they have to have perfect credit, that's not the case.  It's up to us in our area of Jersey to educate them about our market.  Realtors unite!
