That structure may have been symbolic rather than functional since bells were not installed but the suggestion of bells is in line with the design of a church.

Your photos show that the building seems to be kept in excellent condition. Considering the various older trades that were involved in it's construction that is quite a feat in itself.

Picture #2 is a good example showing a tile roof, plastered exterior walls, an arched wooden door and some nice stonework. The intricate trim and detail shown in picture #3 is fascinating.

A good example of things we may see every day but do not really look at. Thanks for the look.

1. People-watching

2. Where's a meter maid when you need one?

3. Korebrew? (Korean & Hebrew?). Had I had been walking in the other direction, I might have thought that it was an LL Cool J bingo card.

4. 1/99 (think Nena in 1984 )

5. Hear Nena in 1984

Tonight's storm knocked out power in my neighborhood just after 8pm for a little over an hour.

In the first picture, you can see darkness west of Main. The Middle School was out, as were the churches around me and the E lot, which is most of this picture.

Since a dark apartment kinda sucks for photo subjects, I opened my front door and saw unusual shadows (picture 2) coming up from the floor below me and from my own floor. Then I noticed what appeared to be a bloody ceiling (picture 3) - all courtesy of the hallways' evil emergency backup lights (picture 4).

The second I shut the door, the lights came back on.

As I mentioned before I enjoy your pictures because they make me think, most captions also bring a smile to my face.

Your peeping, and also pouting neighbors seem to be sorry they did not choose the river view rather than settling for the standard assorted cable view.

The scene in Img. 2271 made me wonder what was on the other side of the wall that was being anchored by those steel backing plates, what would come crashing down if some evil resident undid the nuts? The device on the wall directly under the emergency light also caught my eye. A switch? A door bell? The lighting and shadows are fascinating, less so under normal conditions I assume.

The church steeple is a thing of beauty against the "in your face" architectural style of the high rise and it's two partners looking like they are about to march off the high ground and crush the folks in the cheap seats.  Very appropriate caption on that one.

I think you are referring to the number "7" that hangs there. I may be the only person you know who occupies the 7th-floor of a 6-story building.

No one here would consider whoever did such a "dastardly" dismantling to be evil. Any evil would be on the part of the installers of what you see below.

Thanks for clearing up two mysteries. The 7 is now so evident I am wondering how I missed it.

The cell antenna array seems too close to your residence. People are going nuts protesting proposed antennas that will be hundreds of feet from the closest house and more than 100 feet in the air. Were you considered expendable when that location was chosen?

 There really is not enough known about the long range effect of holding a radio transmitter, (aka cell phone), up against the side of your head for hours or, the amount of radiation we absorb from the spiderweb of radio waves we are plowing through daily.

Busy day today. Besides the "Art under 80" shoot:

1. A bloomin' park

2. A Teaneck police car stopping someone on Anderson St

3. An antique meat locker (subject of a future post)

4. Do you know the way to M IN    ST? (to be reposted in the "Signs..." topic)

5. Mass destruction

6. The SS Catch Me

7&8. A chained radial and a tiny sitter in front of the same house

9. A choo-choo

I've been ranting about the stupidity of this cell antenna installation for years, so you'll pardon me if I choose not to resurrect the subject in this thread. If you want to read about it, you can go to my site and use the Gallery index on the left to scroll down to Hackensack. Click on that and go down to the fifth from the bottom image/writeup.


On a cheerier note, it's Springtime at the library:

Your reason for not renewing the battle is understandable. I will check your site. On to cheerier subjects.

where was the destruction photo taken?

East side of S. River St, just south of 80.
