The Groundbreaking Ceremony for the 389 Main Project
« Reply #30 on: May 10, 2018, 04:04:14 PM »
As mentioned in the previous post, the groundbreaking ceremony for the 389 Main project took place today (though the first 3 pictures were actually taken yesterday):


1. Parts of the E lot that were closest to the site were off-limits to all but the ceremony attendees.

2. A man who was walking on State St stopped to check out the banner.

3. I decided to document how the tent fit in the grand scheme of the neighborhood on the only late afternoon of its existence here.

4,5. An hour before the guests started arriving today, an effort was made to gussy up the reserved spaces. It doesn't appear to have helped. In fact

6. Just before the ceremony started, I got an idea of how many people might attempt to throw dirt at me.

The speakers (in order):

7. Jon Hanson, Founder and Chairman of the Hampshire Companies (and inducted just last Sunday into the New Jersey Hall of Fame)

8. Max Dorne, Director of Development for Claremont Companies (the people doing all the destruction/construction)

9. Bill Hanson, President of NAI James E. Hanson (the Hanson Realty office on State St was the first building knocked down for this project). He spoke for about 3 seconds - I was lucky to get this one shot of him.

10. John LaBrosse, Mayor of Hackensack

The Groundbreaking:

11. This shot includes the 4 speakers, most of the City Council, a certain HackensackNow Editor and 7 people I dont know.

12. The 4 speakers and 2 people I dont know

I didn't get to shoot the really good scenes of this because I was too mesmerized by the giant amounts of dirt that would suddenly head skyward.............."Oh, wait - I've gotta take a picture"................and this was the only halfway-decent shot I got.
