Hackensack History / Re: Old Candy stores
« Last post by Editor on July 12, 2018, 02:10:01 PM »
Anybody remember Fine Stationary (maybe Fein) owned by Charlie. It was on Main Street, near Lido.

Someone at the office is asking. Would have been late 60's early 70's.  In addition to stationary, they sold candy, toys, etc.

Ol’ Homer prefers Stony Hill over the White Manna. Their wine list is far superior.

150-170 Main: 382 units over 7000 sq. ft. retail.  They started pouring concrete footings today (finally).
149 Main: 72 units over retail. They'll make an effort to replicate the old Woolworth's façade.

Thanks for the photo updates!

The Hole at Main and Mercer & 147 Main

1. Stitch looking west from Moore St

2, 3, 4. Three things I hadn't seen there before

5. Looking northeast from Main St

6. Meanwhile, directly across Main St: all this piping has been added since the last time I was here. Anyone have any idea what's coming to this space? I'm guessing that the McCrory 5 and 10 Cent Store sign is hidden again for another century.

210 Main (front and back)

1, 2, 3. EXCLUSIVE! The first tenant has already moved in to...........

4......... (where I removed the color from the building [not a big fan of the reddish/pinkish look of the bottom images])

5. The 210 alley that goes from Main to Moore

6, 7. Strange shapes taking place in the rear lobby of............

8.

9, 10. Heading south and west to..........

11...................before heading............

12, 13...................north

MOORE/E. SALEM/MAIN

The rear entrances of some of the Main St stores (third and fourth images) are more interesting than the front entrances (a mop over the door that's held open with a rope AND a sign that gets the street name wrong?).

Speaking of getting things wrong, the last image is a failed photo stitch that's so bad, it's kind of comical.

Sunday's temperatures were tolerable and I was overdue for another projects update, so off I went to shoot Current on River, Moore/E. Salem/Main, 210 Main (front and back) and The Hole at Main and Mercer combined with 147 Main across the street. Filesizewise (not  a real word),  I'll have to make a post for each of the four topics.

CURRENT ON RIVER

All the pipes you see in the first three shots weren't there last time I visited. Anyone know what this particular area is to become (or what is shown in the seventh picture)?

I remember it well...working at Guy Ross Chevrolet, and River St was chaos..traffic, fire trucks, police trucks..everyone trying to see what was going on..horrible

Well, it only took about 9 hours, but it's done. QuickTime's seamstress apparently doesn't like my new OS and other upgrades and took FOREVER to sew various combinations of a dozen video pieces together.

What else can I gripe about? Oh yeah - as I mentioned in the stills post, Hackensack started the show early, so I missed the opening barrage while still setting up. The finale was VERY short............I'm not even sure I got it on video, so I feel gypped on both ends.

Usually after a great finale, I can hear the Foschini Park crowd - from my living room (a good distance away) - immediately and enthusiastically cheering. After this abbreviated finale, I listened for it and barely heard a thing. Maybe the crowd was as stunned as I was.

As I wrote on the YouTube page, here are some of the other goodies in this video:

- a not-nearby baby yelling
- the autofocus bouncing in and out
- cheap fireworks that were going off downstairs
- car alarms
- an ice cream truck that was too dark to make out and that I failed to verbally identify (it had been playing ice cream truck music)
- Hackensack after-show traffic honking horns during a Macy's segment

Other than all that, everything was peachy.

Be sure to hit the full-screen option. Viewing it on this too-brightly-backgrounded page makes everything way too dark.
