Locals charge that South Orange Avenue will become crowded and noisy; quality of life will suffer
Seton Hall University's plan to build a new University Center has drawn ire from nearby residents. A number of locals have launched and signed a petition to ask town officials to hold off on granting permission for the project. As planned, says the petition, the construction will "have a detrimental effect on a large part of the open space along South Orange Avenue and the neighborhoods surrounding it." Specifically, the construction includes a two-lane service road that runs parallel to South Orange Avenue. The road ends in a turn-around circle and a loading dock. The construction plans (attached) suggest that trees and grass that now fronts South Orange Avenue will give way to paving. South Orange representatives informed trustees of …

Man was walking near Ivy Hill Park.
A Seton Hall University student was robbed of $200 by two men with a silver handgun Monday night, said South Orange Police Chief James Chelel. The student, a male Newark resident, was walking on Wilden Place near the Newark border at around 9:50 p.m. when he was approached by two men, one of whom displayed a silver handgun, said Chelel. The men demanded the student's cash, which he turned over, said Chelel. The two men fled, and the student walked back to campus and called police, he said. Chelel said the student described the two men as black, wearing black jackets and ski masks and roughly 5' 10" tall. South Orange Police are working with Newark Police and campus security on the case, said Chelel.

Locals jonesing for their favorite brew find it at Seton Hall
Coffee drinkers are brand-loyal, it seems. When the South Orange Avenue Dunkin' Donuts closed for renovation in early October, some locals found their way to the next closest Dunkin' Donuts, on the Seton Hall campus. "To be honest," said Cara Sabella, "I was never here, at Seton Hall, before." Sabella stood just outside the Walsh Library clutching a large coffee and a box of donuts. "I had read about how there was a new Dunkin' Donuts here, and I remember thinking it was a good idea -- students plus coffee, right? -- so I came to campus when my regular place closed." Sabella's not the only resident drawn to Seton Hall by coffee and donuts, and she is not only one impressed by what she sees. "This is a really nice place," said resident Tony…

South Orange and Maplewood residents walked through downtown South Orange Tuesday night as businesses reopened to a hungry crowd.
Some Maplewood and South Orange residents were still without power as of Tuesday night but they won't let Sandy keep them from a good meal. The Achee family went to Village Trattoria for a few slices of pizza while their home remains in the dark. Seton Hall University students said they were surprised to see downtown South Orange bustling with open businesses. A group of Freshman students said they didn't lose power and felt safe from the storm in the shelter of their dorm rooms. They were enjoying the day off from class Tuesday night and said tomorrow is for finishing those papers and watching more movies — a welcome break from school.
