Heavy luggage in Newark
A relative will be coming in to the United States in Newark with some luggage that is too heavy for her to easily handle. Does anyone have any suggestions on hauling this through customs. I figure that, at the least, she should be able to get a cart and ask another traveler to help move the bag(s) off the baggage carrousel. Is there any kind of luggage handling for hire at this airport? Thanks for any responses!

Anything cool near Englewood, New Jersey?
My wife and I are flying out there this weekend so she can do her final interviews for a job and we can check the area out to see if we would possibly want to live there. Looking for recommendations for good restaurants/shopping/cultural stuff that will make for a fun weekend -- and help us decide if Englewood would be a good home for us. Of course open to nearby cities (Hackensack?) as well. Thanks!

Converting a two-way residential street to a one-way?
Our town is proposing that several residential streets in my neighborhood be converted from two-way streets to one-way streets. My husband and I (and many of our neighbors) are against this, especially since our street is one of the streets they want to change to a one-way.
