Paris or Secaucus?

OK, not really close, but a recent visit to Secaucus demonstrates that the Plaza at Harmon Meadow development (link here

) actually has a very nice pedestrian scale to it.  Even on a rainy day, people are out and about (although not so much at the many sidewalk cafes).

I say “actually” because the Meadowlands area of northern New Jersey is not famous for pedestrian-scale development.  The whole idea of developing the Meadowlands – an area previously best known for movie mobsters being murder, buried, or both – has been continuously controversial in the state for years.  So it’s nice to see one piece with good scale.
