Route 9/Presidential Estates - at Bus stop
(Route 9/High St.)
Route 9/Birch Street (one block south of Pine St.)
Route 9/ between Pine and Central (driver does not stop at these tight corners, but rather picks up at the Railroad tracks where there is more room)
Route 9/ at bus stops - if you flag him down.
Route 9 / TD bank at bus stop
turns onto Kennedy Blvd
Kennedy/Princeton (Coventry)
"Four Corners" County Line/Squankum - 6:47am
County Line /Brook Road
County Line /Red Oak Drive, Alvarado and some other streets along County Line...
Dorado Park N Ride 6:57am
Brick Park N Ride 7:00am
(avoid parking at Dorado when possible, so we don't upset other commuters)

That is the lkwd - midtown bus (b&h).
They have a kollel bus which I believe runs more or less same route just 1 hour earlier.

I think the Kollel bus gets to Dorado around 6:30 or so. It is usually full with set seats so not really a good option for drop ins

I think it's there by around 8:35 but not positive. It'll depend on how far you need to go once you get in.
Alternatively leave earlier on NJ transit and Daven in NYC.

1 hour earlier?
No, it leaves Dorado around 6:30

Attached is the NJ Transit schedule

The 7:00 davening bus has room.

When it gets into the city it goes:
Arrives at B&H approximately 8:30am
then travels across town on 34th or 36th St.from 9th Ave to Madison Ave. (34th or 36th depends on traffic)
Up Madison Ave from  36th to 47th Street.

Madison is 1 (long) block over from Park

I have no say in the matter.
But in general why would someone do that if he didnt need to? It shows instability

Assuming that it closed due to lack of business, it is more important to distance from the previous owner

The owner got married and moved to bkln. I wont say business was doing to great, but not enough of a reason to close. He just didnt want to deal with making it work better.
(He made a few mistakes in the beginning but we where moving on, he was not happy with the Lakewood market so he left (( he was used to upscale bkln restaurants)))
