Adieu to Cherished Views
« on: June 16, 2023, 11:40:00 AM »
I've lost some very nice views from home over the years - the Bergen County Courthouse, the entire Kipps Bend section of the Hackensack River - and "progress" is about to take two more cherished views: one internationally-known and one local...........both "courtesy" of the project bordered by Main St, Berry St, State St and Camden St (MBSC).

I've made blowups of both, so click each to fully-enlarge and then start scrolling laterally.

1. The first one - and most heartbreaking to lose - is the World Trade Center. Here's where things stand now.

2. The second is the very distinctive cupola of the Johnson Public Library. The addition of one more floor oughta kill that view.

Looking at that picture, it appears that I've been spotted by the worker in the white hard hat. But that's not very likely when you look at the third picture.

This is a very wide PANO shot that shows the red-circled living room window where I shoot from on the left and the tall MBSC crane on the far right, so unless he's got the eyes of a hawk.................
