Rutgers announced some really exciting news today - they're going to develop lot 8 where the grease trucks already sit, along with partnering with DEVCO to buy the New Brunswick Theological Seminary site. (Don't know what's up with them, but they should probably just move to Somerset or Piscataway, somewhere like that.) Sure, people will be ticked about moving the grease trucks, but can anyone deny that there should be something more important on that spot than a parking lot? Besides, the idea of grease truck lot is a relatively recent development, with Rutgers first offering use of the site to get the trucks off of College Avenue several years back. Relatively, it's ahistorical. You should be far more upset over Rutgers paving over the spot of the first ever college football game with a parking lot. Rutgers, frankly, is cramped for space. Now they get to build two huge swaths of valuable College Avenue real estate. The seminary spot will have a brand new academic complex, lot 8 will have a new Rockoff-style (re: souped up and more expensive) dorm, and another parking deck (eh, it's needed, but these are hard to not make really ugly) is on tap as well. Update: this thread on Rivals has the goods with more details.
