Chicken Magician lives! And turned Chinese!

I thought it folded when it left the Rite Aid strip, but it's popped up a bit north on Linden in My China Cafe. I don't know how long it's been there.

Look at those cigarette prices next door! It's been a LONG time since I bought cigarettes, so I'm shocked they cost so much. I used to buy cartons for half of that.

I'll bet those prices will look cheap in a few years.

1. Just the right-sized door


2. I had no idea what this was.........maybe they manufactured Cheer laundry detergent specifically made for the uniforms of the best players on the NFL team from St. Louis?

Well, not quite. BTW, Mr. Editor, there are a bunch of YouTube videos for this place if you're interested.


3. Violators of what?


4. Woolworth?


5. How did we miss THIS event? I don't recall Holy Trinity ever honoring saints like this - it might have made some of us closer to the church if they did.  ;)

(hey - the girl in the middle has calf muscles in the front!)

The first two images were in the window of a vacated store on Passaic St between Linden and First St.


The third image advertises an available apartment on Park St. Based on placement of one sign component, it HAS to be for a ground -floor unit.


Also on Park St, the name on the fourth image sounds like a place where aging Cadillacs live out their final days before heading to the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX.

If you're not familiar with the Cadillac Ranch: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2220

Springsteen's lyrics for his song of the same name: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/b/bruce_springsteen/cadillac_ranch.html


Fifth image: saving the best for last, this double billboard on Passaic St by the tracks delivers once again!

Update: there's no sign of Chicken Magician in My China Cafe anymore. It just vanished, like.............magic. Anybody know where it went? Maybe the Hackensack Market Pharmacy/Bakery? I'm sure they have room.


These are pretty self-explanatory.

(I can have a mountain delivered?)

A sausage shake is bad enough, but the second combo is a bit creepy - especially if you don't immediately notice the line at the bottom of the right sign.

Even then, it's questionable.

You are correct Sir.

How bizarre.

(In retrospect, I'm wondering if it is just a placeholder ad which might be better than nothing at all).

If I remember correctly, Hackensack Glass used to be on that corner...back in the 80's
