Opinion: Visiting a Re-Opened Mall in Georgia Gave Me a Glimpse of NJ’s Future

May 20, 2020

In the not-so-distant future, our corona-closed world will gradually re-open, allowing New Jersians the freedom to shop out, to dine in and to basically do anything that’s not based in our living rooms. 

To most the liberation may seem like the end of World War II and in many ways it is, but there are some catches to this re-opening; changes in protocols and attitudes that will make ...
