The next-to-last shot (#3204) was taken from Foschini Park. You can see birds flying low over the river.

The second half of these images was shot on a 10-25-20 walkaround. The only two colorful photos are scaffolding - both standing and stacked.

I haven't posted about this place in 4 months, so I'm putting up what I've shot since then (which isn't much).

I've kinda lost interest, so it's all things I've noticed from home and just this one post will bring things up-to-date.

This had my attention for a minute or so:



And here are some stills (one looks like a duck). The dates are under each image.

The 435 Main (at Anderson) project got its name tag today
« Reply #52 on: April 07, 2022, 03:35:45 PM »
Geez - it's been over a year since I've posted in this thread. Westbound Anderson St was closed this morning because there was a big crane in the road, but I didn't know why. A couple of hours later, I saw this (it goes perfectly with the previous photo):

1. This is the notice for the closure that resulted in the above picture.

2. The next day, I received this notice. Sounds like there might be another sign going up on the Main St side.

3. I had to go food shopping that morning, but decided to first take a walk over to Main and Anderson to see if I guessed correctly. I did. There was a truck there that showed part of a sign that said "The WA". A minute later, part of a sign that was behind it was raised that said "LCOTT". I didn't know that the sign came in sections. Here's a view of the Main St side sign that only existed for a few seconds. You'll never see this again.

4. How would the sign be attached? The answer's on the wall.

5. Since it's a vertical sign, the bottom "LCOTT" piece goes up first...........

6,7. ...............and gets attached to the wall.

8. Another rare moment in time where just 1 1/2 signs are up.

9.10. There were some long waits between the important shots of this shoot, so I passed the time by taking some boring PANO pix of what else was going on around me (a turning car, a bus).

11. But I think my favorite was this block-long (at least!) HFD fire engine that cannot turn left or right off Main St. The Main St Fire Engine travels the length of Main St and then has to back up the entire length of the street to begin the process all over again............total and constant fire coverage for Main St! Brilliant!
(.......and if you believe that............)

By the way - regarding that little black blur of a car - I was panning right to left (the direction of the southbound fire engine). The black car was moving left to right (northbound). Going with the panning direction lengthens vehicles. Going against shortens them.

12. At this point, my "quick stop" at The Walcott had lasted an hour. It took quite a while to get that first piece from truck to wall, so I decided to quickly do my food shopping (in Paramus) and see if I could make it back in time for Piece #2.

I returned via Rt 4 and Main St, which was one lane between Maple and Anderson. As I was stopped at the traffic light at Anderson, the second piece of the sign started lifting off the truck (what timing!). I took this shot from my car (this may be the only time I was ever glad to catch a red light).

13,14. I quickly parked and hustled back in time to get these shots of the top part of the sign being put in place.

15. And here's the finished product............
