What’s the story with the Lakewood airport? Wanna take my kids to watch. Can I get in? Is there a place to watch from? They love planes so even if there isn’t that many flights they’d enjoy looking at the airplanes also if that’s possible.

just pull up and watch. There’s benches to sit on. Ull be pretty bored as take offs and landings are pretty scarce and they knocked down the little “terminal”.

Monmouth Executive is prob cooler to watch as they have jets but don’t know scheduled flights .

new license
New licenses are given priority, you need to be there before 8AM when the manager comes out to give "tickets" IIUC the ticket lets you get a slot for the next day. They have some sort of text message system set up to manage the tickets.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

That's how I'm understanding it.

I haven't been to the DMV, all I know is what I see online.

You can just pull in to the lot, and park you r car and watch. The runway is right there.

It's pretty dead during the week. There's action on the weekends. On Shabbos & Sundays the planes take off with banners to fly along the beach.

Anyone know of local stores that have children’s bikes in stock?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Toys for you had some the other day. Probably makes sense to call ahead.
