Masked citizens - the Coronavirus
« on: March 10, 2020, 05:40:44 PM »
An N95 and an N2000?

It's the first time I've seen anyone outside my window wearing an anti-virus mask.

Let's hope it doesn't become commonplace (but I have a feeling it will).

Bunch of people in the Fairmount section went out to sing The Gambler in honor of Kenny Rogers who died today.  Organized on the spur of the moment via Facebook.  I've heard of people leaving birthday wishes in chalk on the sidewalk.

We need more ideas like this. I wonder what can safely be done with lasers, balloons, drones,- anything to keep people looking up.

Maybe it is more simple than I thought.

Along those lines...........this is great. Read the story and then scroll down to listen to Jeremy Ross' post:

https://www.aol.com/article/entertainment/2020/03/23/chicago-residents-belt-out-citywide-bon-jovi-singalong-after-stay-at-home-order/23959029/

The rest are not so great, with the exception of Takahiko Sugimura's post.

Now if only we could get the Prospect Avenue high-rises to ALL try this, it might be heard citywide.

Can you imagine?

Coronavirus on Main Street - Part 1 of 3
« Reply #14 on: March 29, 2020, 02:55:52 PM »
I took a walk last Thursday - 3/26 - from my apartment to the pharmacy at Anderson and Linden. The first thing I saw after crossing Union St was a new sign at the SE entrance to Anderson Park (first picture). I started wondering if there were any signs in the Anderson Street businesses' windows. There were (next 4 pictures) and they were from a hair studio, Walgreen's, The China Palace and the Hackensack Convenience Store.

When I returned home, I started wondering about Main St. For all the wrong reasons, these are historic times and this is a site that holds most of the history of Hackensack. 100 years from now, historians will also wonder about this horrible virus and its effect on the city. It's our duty to provide accurate glimpses of what's going on. I would urge every member to post photos and/or tell stories of whatever they happen to see that tells the local Coronavirus saga for the benefit of future researchers.

I want to show what Main St looked like during this COVID-19 nightmare, so I took a 2-mile walk on Friday morning, March 27, from Anderson St to the Courthouse and back to photograph every closed sign. There were 50 of them - 17 on the east side of the street and 33 on the west side. I did not photograph any of the "Open for delivery or pickup" signs of all the open food businesses.

Some of the messages were businesslike and some were personal and hand-written. Two were cute. Note that one of the hand-written signs from Anderson Street (4th image) is nearly identical to one from Main Street (16th image).

I have a limit of 20 images per post, so this will be shown in 3 posts. The Editor will be happy to learn that all the pictures - which originally totaled 16.6MB - have had their combined weight reduced to 5.6MB.

If anyone wants to know where the first cute one was posted (the "No handshakes, no hugs, no kisses" sign) and might be thinking of patronizing that place of business when this is all over, it's in the picture right after the sign.

So here are the 5 Thursday Anderson St shots and the first 14 Friday ones - plus the store photo - heading south on the east side of Main St):
