Montclair has no major highways (yet…or is that the next “improvement” plan?), no big business, nothing that is a big enough “draw.” People looking for fun or a vacation are going to be staying in Manhattan, where hotels are closing by the dozens and are being converted to condos. And speaking of condos, are people in the Siena going to like having a huge hotel going up across the street from their home?
