The Main-Berry-State-Camden Project
« on: March 28, 2022, 07:35:23 PM »
Isn't there a better name for this project?

1. From my living room, I saw this tall crane a couple of blocks away, but I couldn't see what it was lifting.

2,3,4. So I took a walk over there and found out.

5. Here's the full State St view, looking down Camden St.

6. On Camden, this concrete piece says "New Prince  Hackensack". Is that a new restaurant? No - it's the name of the concrete construction company.

7. The PANO view from Camden - midway between State and Main.

8. Whatever you do, don't drive straight ahead.

9. This is what was behind me.

10. The view from Main St

11. Last Saturday afternoon - from home - the fluttering flag atop the condensed crane caught my eye. What catches my eye now is how may different projects are in this shot.

Click to enlarge. There are a few PANOS in this bunch, so be sure you do.

From home:

1. Two floors later...........

2. The building right next to the construction is now being torn down. Not sure what building that is, but it appears to be on Camden St.

3. It turns out that I took a picture of the adjoining buildings on the Camden St. side a day earlier. The sign on the being-torn-down-building says "Venture Program". Here's information about that: https://www.bergenresourcenet.org/search/the-venture-program-bergen-county-special-services-and-division-of-family-guidance/. It appears to be part of the Gateway High School around the corner at 295 Main.

4. It looks like there are still drawings (juvenile?) on the inside walls.

5,6. At the site later that day.........

7. As I'm shooting, I noticed yet another project right behind me on the west side of State St between the one-story Korean Church on the right and the little 7-11/Cleaners strip mall on the left. Are these two separate projects?

8. Since the gate was open, I took two steps inside to shoot a PANO of the whole lot that just had many little holes drilled into it.

9. The next day, I saw this from home (and then took another walk over there).

10. Demolition was now one room closer to Camden St (with more things on the wall).

11. Three days later, heavy metal from the demolition was being (loudly) dumped into the truck.

12. The day after THAT (Saturday, April 16) - with southward demolition (pile on left) complete to Camden St, I took this pair of shots through the fence on Berry St..............

13.............and then shot the top of the demolisher.

14. Moving over to Main St, I took this PANO shot of the whole lot, including the apparatus that was drilling all those little holes in the ground (far right).

15. I then headed over to Camden St - which seems to have been paved - to show that the partial demolition of the building next door had reached the street. It appears that the rest of that white building will also come down.

16. Today - April 18 - the demolition of the white Camden St building continues in an easterly direction.

Click most to enlarge - especially the PANOS.

1. Less dirt = more buildings.

2. While on Camden St, I saw this guy occasionally popping out of the top floor. The next time he did, I was ready.

3. This was going on right across State St. I'm still not sure if these two work sites are related.

4. From the same spot, I did a 180º and shot this PANO.

5. I shot the next two images this morning from my living room. There are at least 4 projects visible in this one, plus lovely Spring foliage colors.

6. You may have noticed someone on top of the new construction in that last shot. Zooming in shows there are two people working there and the closer one has his feet on two different ladder steps as he lifts and moves a very large wood plank that had been standing against the wall. I would NOT want to try doing that.


Click to enlarge some of them.
