- Early morning sunlight illuminates (right to left): 389 Main St, 7 E.Ward St, River St car dealer balloons (adds a nice touch, don't you think?)

- Street reach of 5th-floor flooring

- State St protection for the flooring delivery

- a piece of 5th-floor flooring

-  Man, they're just nibbling my view to death, aren't they?

- view across Passaic St from Parisian Beauty parking lot

- Over-the-fence STITCH


5-20-19 (3)

- removing tape backing

- Lunch!


5-21-19 (10)

- some walkaround

- truck containing the 5th-floor wood walls that will completely knock out my river view (I was thinking of hijacking it)

- The last 2 are STITCHES (@Ward and State, on Main looking up Ward)

- Now you see it, now you don't

- Hey..........get away from my view!

- walkaround


5-23-19 (11) + one from 5/24

This is the day my view was officially stolen, once they put up a window frame on the river (and it was pouring rain in the next two shots - serves them right!). I know I've griped about it enough, but the truth is that when I asked the site boss last year when I would lose my river view, he told me it would happen in December, so I've actually had 5 more months than I expected. Still................

In the below video, I shot that window frame/wall piece that was being installed and, in the end, the weather gods voiced their opinion on my behalf. Thanks, WGs.

The site was closed on Memorial Day weekend, so I was surprised to see two guys who pulled up in a project-associated vehicle suddenly appear on the wrong side of a locked gate (first pic). It turns out that they had gained entrance through a..............let's just say "a weak spot in the fence" (second pic).

Click! Click!.............and sent to the boss, who, um, took care of things.

Walkaround




5-27-19

My apartment is 7 floors up. These two pictures were taken from my apartment's roof - 8 floors up - where I can still see a little bit of river...............but that won't last for long.



5-28-19

Don't know what this piping (?) is for, but it's an image I haven't seen here before.



5-29-19

Three more floors were illuminated at night, it had just finished raining, the sky was clearing and you could see the high-rises in Cliffside Park (horizon, center) and the The Modern 1 and 2 in Fort Lee on the left horizon.



5-30-19

Another load of wood arrives because they've still got to build three more floors on the Main St side. After that wood was stacked, I went for a walk and took one of my favorite shots from this project: the stacked wood leading to what it will become - stacked floors.



5-31-19

Not sure what the red stuff is..........cables? piping? Twizzlers? Whatever.................it's a new visual. I wonder what dance the guy's doing in the second pic - odds are it isn't the Safety Dance. In the third pic, I found that there's still the slightest bit of river view left from my living room.



6-1-19

Took a walk to see if anything had been built yet on the Main St side. I had seen a that a crane had been doing something from my apartment, but it had only brought up third floor components, so I drove over to Teaneck to see what the project looked like from Terhune Park. You can just barely see some of my building with its two chimneys.
