Lakewood: The rumors and plans have been circulating over the internet for years now proclaiming the impending closure of the famed Flea Market on NJ 70. For decades the Route 70 Flea Market in Lakewood has been a place for the community to buy and sell goods. Plans were first submitted years ago for new homes, commercial, and likely a Yeshiva.

Today Lakewood News Network (The GOOD Lakewood news page) broke the news that a contract has been signed for developing the Flea Market site. Their press release claims 166 NEW housing units will be constructed on the property.
