I know there's one of these signs high above Main St, just south of Anderson and facing Sears, but I just recently saw this one from home. It's right next to the tracks by Passaic St.

Think this sign will result in any boat donations?

I asked you three different questions about your post (which, by the way, had nothing to do with this thread's topic of Clinton Place Halloween decorations) and your reply addressed none of them.

It doesn't appear that the name of the site is what needs to be changed.

Fives & Flubs

Sorry - there is just SO much stupidity this time around that there is no room for the frequent Fives.

Let's start with a horrible Hackensack Chronicle flub.

No, I'm not going into details,

Why post a story if you won't give details?

We don't know anything we didn't know before you posted that.

Besides the social news site, what is your definition of a "reddit"?

This is a local history site............what will researchers learn 50-100 years from now from that post?

Details, please.

10-31-18 and 11-1-18

1,2. Gettin' serious on the garage part of the project.


3-7. The Sunday walkaround: when I can shoot things that I can't shoot (or see) from home.


8. I see this man fairly often, riding by slowly and surveying the scene.


9, 10, 11. Steel girders will soon arrive to fill in all the ground openings


12. Our little nor'easter


13. Washing the mud off his boots after work before getting into someone's vehicle for the ride home


14-20. Another Sunday walkaround

That view is the inside of the next-door-to-the-fire Battleground store. The brick wall on the left is the inside view of the below wall.

1. Stamping out a love/don't love message in the snow to someone or something.

2. Part of the multi-county parking lot: State St from Main/Ward to State/Berry hardly moved at all. I'm sure it was like that all over town. (The middle of the 5 images is out of focus)

3,4. The morning after: the clouds begin to rise and reveal Midtown's skyscrapers and the sun lights up and melts stuff.

Anyone besides the HFD (wait two days, Mike) want to guess where this is?

BTW - that's not a water reflection at the end of the floor. That part of the floor is gone.

Hackensack History / Re: Demolition of The Record building
« on: November 13, 2018, 04:27:37 PM »
I stopped by The Record site yesterday to see if the front was down (it wasn't) and took a few shots.

1. You can see how close they are to the front by looking through the first-floor windows.

2,3,4. From the NW corner of the property

5. The view from the south showing the proximity to River St.

6,7. Metal work in the back

Given how close they were to the front, I thought it might come down today. Rainy days are good for that because it keeps the dust down, but as of 2pm today - no change.

Hackensack Discussion / "Pupuseria"?
« on: November 13, 2018, 11:43:00 AM »
I was on E. Salem, stopped at the light on Main, saw this sign I had never seen before, took a quick shot and googled "pupuseria" when I got home.

A pupuseria is where pupusas are sold.

The pupusa is a popular El Salvadoran dish made of a thick, corn tortilla filled with anything from meats to cheeses to refried beans to pork rinds. Pupusas can be purchased from pupuserias, as well as streetside vendors. Pupusas are also found in certain areas of Guatemala and Honduras.
