Glassboro Mayor William Dalton took the opportunity at Tuesday's council meeting to warn residents that the borough would begin radar surveillance of traffic on State Street immediately. The action was prompted by reports that motorists entering State Street from West Street or heading along State Street toward Delsea Drive were traveling at up to 50 m.p.h. In a letter read to the council by the borough clerk, the Rev. William Thielking, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, asked for action.

Hoping to create a diversity of shops, restaurants and cultural nightlife in the business district, borough officials are proposing that vacant State Street storefronts be filled only by retail establishments. The plan, to be discussed at a hearing tomorrow, affects only first-floor vacancies in the main business district. Banks and offices would not be eliminated from their first-floor locations. In the future, those spaces could be leased to other banks or offices. But if the use is abandoned for six months, the space could come back only as retail.

SEPTA's track replacement work on State Street is expected to be completed this week for most of the business district, officials said yesterday. As part of a $1.1 million project, the trolley tracks on State Street are being replaced with about a mile of continuous welded rail from Lemon Street Street to Providence Road. "We're working between Jackson Street and Monroe Street," which will finish most work in the business district, said Ron Patton, a SEPTA spokesman. SEPTA launched the project in the Delaware County seat this summer on the heels of a water-main replacement project by Philadelphia Suburban Water Co. Borough officials and the Media Business Authority worked to coordinate the projects so that there would be minimal impact on State Street businesses and town events.

More than a year after it was closed for repairs, the State Street Bridge that connects East and North Camden is set to open later this month - along with a twin. Excavators were still rummaging through dirt at the site Wednesday, but Camden County officials said July 26 would be the grand opening. The last set of streetlights is being installed on the new companion span, city officials said, and Camden City Council is expected to pass a resolution at its next meeting, on Tuesday, to approve paying the monthly utility charges for the lights.

Down the red-brick, ruby-throated passage of Delancey Place's 2000 block, nestled between other stately townhouses, the Rosenbach Museum and Library quietly sits, waiting to welcome all those drawn to its bibliophilic nectars. This is where A.S.W. Rosenbach, legendary bookseller and collector, and his brother Philip once lived, an 1865 townhouse at number 2010, now on the National Register of Historic Places. Inside, on any day but Monday, a curious visitor or a driven literary tourist can explore a quintessential Philadelphia gem. The Rosenbach houses a significant part of the brothers' collection and much that has been added since 1954, when the museum was established after the brothers' deaths, in accordance with their wishes.

Gently rocking in a canvas chair at Occupy New Jersey, Edward Anthony Salter seems as serene as the Sunday morning around him. Pretty much everything else is closed in downtown Trenton, and for the moment, he's alone. "Hello, brother," Salter, 29, says, his smile as strong as his handshake. "Have a seat. " For the next hour, we talk about why he's become a de facto resident of the World War II memorial park across State Street from the Capitol. A small band of "occupants" is maintaining a presence there to protest economic inequality, and this Trenton Central Class of 2000 graduate is a part of it. "A more informed citizen is my goal," Salter says.
