Ridgefield Park's marble (or granite) elephants
« on: July 09, 2017, 06:36:59 PM »
Anyone remember a picture of a marble (or granite) elephant in Ridgefield Park that I posted 6 years ago?

Well, he's now accompanied by a stylized friend with one tusk.

They're right at the corner of Railroad and Mt Vernon.

BTW - the little one is the original (check the photo dates) and it's got a big sidekick now with one tusk.

On Mt Vernon there's a place called Luigi's that has that cool old neon sign. Looks like an old place, anyone ever been there?

For the last 3 years of the 70s, I lived DIRECTLY across the street from Luigi's (and right next to the firehouse).

I think it's been there since 1948. I don't think I ever took a picture of the neon at night, however.
