    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—A woman was hospitalized after she was struck by a car on Hamilton Street at about 1:15pm on Friday.

    But that incident, which occurred near the intersection with Plum Street in front of Ta-ta's Pizza, was only the beginning. 

    Police officers briefly closed one block of Hamilton Street as EMS crews tended to the unidentified female victim.

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Last month's sudden closing of the Court Tavern may appear to some like the nadir of the music scene in New Brunswick.  The Home News Tribune ran a headline calling it "the end of an era in New Brunswick."

    New Brunswick has long been a hot spot on the indie, punk , and–more recently–the hip-hop circuits.  In recent years, it has springboarded several Hub City bands to stardom like the Gaslight Anthem and Thursday, both of whom have gone on to tour the world.
