What Should Occupy the Corner of Washington and Bank?

There's plenty of hustle and bustle on the Green, as well as a number of empty storefronts, including this one.

Here on Morristown Patch we have noted the recent surge of new businesses coming or recently-arrived to town, from , to , to , there's plenty of commerce coming around.

But, one place that has been somewhat quiet is also one of Morristown's busiest areas: The Green. Sure, 40 Park is busy, with and . opened earlier this year in the former Godiva space. But, , leaving one side of the Green with only and amidst several "For Rent" signs. Directly across, there is plenty of open business space intermingling with and several financial institutions.

But, for this week's episode of "Occupy This Space," we are going to focus on the space where Washington and Bank streets intersect. It's in a busy area, with lots of foot traffic, and plenty of business neighbors. What do you think should "Occupy This Space?" Chime in below.

Everyone will jump right on me, but I think its a great location for another bar....if not, then maybe a clothing store (ralph lauren)

I think the MorrisCounty Sheriffs office should take it over as a holding pen for the throngs of drunks that descend on our formerly safe and quiet town at night. Put large windows in so that these animals can be paraded like creatures at the zoo. Morristown used to be safe at night. Now it's a crap shoot from corner to corner with Frat Boy mentality and underage drinkers leaving puddles of vomit everywhere. Put em on display!!

we need a book store in this town. remember when there was one on park place .... that's what we need. similiar to a sage's pages in madison.

Disagree. Book stores are a dying breed. I feel like putting one in would just be asking to have this spot empty again in the near future.
