Renovations under way at Main Street building

As reader Kevin pointed out in his comment the other day, renovations began last month on two storefronts along Main Street.

Plans for the renovations first were presented to the Redevelopment Agency and Planning Board last year, as reported by Rahway Rising. In addition to new signage, lights and facade, vacant office space on the second and third floors will be transformed into two, two-bedrooms apartments.

Hopefully this means getting rid of the cheesy — and probably illegal — “open” sign that hangs in the window of the Chinese takeout joint. (Apologies for lack of a photo on that.)
