Quick question/ observation: If Sears is on the east side of Main Street and has an even address (436 Main Street) and the former Holman Moving and Storage building is on the west side of Main Street and has an odd address (435 Main Street) how come the Waypoint project is called Holman/ Waypoint 436?

Important picture at Main and Mercer. Looks like they are beginning to set the monster crane.

And the driver would say to the judge:

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
My truck just had a flat tire..........

I donít think anybody gives a damn how they demolish the buildings; but, the photo is the first time anybody can put the length of the Ling in full perspective.

Forget about listing and leaning; Old Homer has come up with a solution to the Ling.
If a Hackensack property owner stores a wrecked/ non functioning vehicle on his or her property, the property owner would be in violation of the Cityís Property Maintenance Code and if the violation were not corrected in a given amount of time, the property owner would be brought into court. (You can see where this is going).
In the case of the Ling, the property owner should be responsible for the removal of this non functioning derelict submarine since the property owner was responsible for bringing the submarine onto their property.
All the City has to do is have a property maintenance inspector issue a notice of violation and if the submarine is not removed in a reasonable period of time, the matter be brought to court for adjudication.
This could be the start of a new direction for maritime law.

The building looks like a hock shop in downtown Paterson.

A joint is probably healthier than one of their cheeseburgers.

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

If my memory is correct, there was a proposal from forty or fifty years ago to extend Central Avenue to Main Street to entice residents from the newly constructed Prospect Avenue high rises to shop on Main Street.
Regarding Banta Place, I remember talk about making it a pedestrian shopping area and not extending it thru to Moore Street.

Isnít there such a thing as accountability? Arenít people supposed to be accountable for their own actions?
These two people were mature adults who chose to cross the tracks where they did. They made a choice where to cross and they paid the ultimate price. I remember a case over thirty years ago where a young man was walking on the tracks carrying a boom box and he never heard the train.
There was another case at Anderson Street where an individual crossed the tracks in front of a stopped train and then crossed the tracks again as the train had started moving. This person was an adult also.
Government puts up stop signs and drivers run the stop signs. Government puts up traffic lights and drivers run the lights.
Government can only do so much. Sadly some people make the wrong choice and have to be held accountable even if done posthumously.

And of course anybody who ever heard a drill sergeant count cadence in basic training:

I know a girl from Hackensack

It will take a joint effort between the City and the affected business interests to create an environment that will make people comfortable to sample what is available.

Time for Olí Homer to give a recollection of the good days gone bye. Back in the early Ď80ís General Poors Retreat was owned by  the late George Brown a well known Hackensack attorney. George was heavily involved in Irish American activities.
On certain Saturday evenings George would bring in an Irish band and by 10:00 you couldnít get into Poors. This was about 35 years ago when Main Street wasnít exactly a hub of nighttime entertainment. Back in those days there was a Saint Patrickís Day parade on Main Street and Poorís was a focus of the parade revelry.
Ah, the good old days.
