I have sent the web link to appropriate leaders in Maywood and Hackensack regarding the proposed Eagle Scout project idea.

I just viewed the great pics of Borgs woods and ponds...wow, it really brought back such great memories when my sister and 2 brothers explored and ice skated on every inch of it....our grandparents lived right accross Coles brook which we crossed to get to thier house on Fairmount Ave in Maywood.....The woods was such a fun place to go.....we were told that the owner was the owner of The Record and it was VERY private property and that we were not allowed there and that made it even more exciting! LOL....

That brings back memories.
Foschini Park, that little rink blocked off and iced off to ice skating. I learned to skate there.

I'd like to think it only seemed like it snowed more back when but it did.

I remember cutting thru Essex / Kaplan Ave. when I was a kid. The snow seemed solid, but a solid looking thin crust over nothing-
it wasn't. Next thing I knew, I was buried in snow up to my eyeballs.
A White Christmas was the norm, not the exception.

The only comparable storm I can even think of since then is the storm of Jan 1996.
The snowplows pushing the snow aside: Essex St was a tunnel!
