I found this headline in today's Record. I took the pictures yesterday.

See any apartments?

Hackensack Discussion / Moore Street projects
« on: May 29, 2017, 01:15:03 PM »
I skipped the Moore St side of the project at Main and Mercer because it looks pretty much the same as it did last year. Any word on why progress still seems to be stalled?

The first 5 pics show how things are looking at 210 and 214 Main from the back. I found the open hole in the bank wall and the accommodating interior light tempting, but I didn't have my vault-opening tools with me.

In the last pic, I'm not sure what project is slated for the NW corner of E. Salem and Moore, but it appears to go all the way down to the library.

And, of course, you can see the work at the old Oritani Field Club on E. Camden at the end of Moore St.

The Holy Trinity Carnival wrapped up Sunday night. Since I was out shooting a couple of other things Sunday, I went over there at around 2:30 and found that it didn't open until 4. I told the guy that I've shot there lots of times when it was crowded, so could I do a quick shoot while it's empty? "OK."

I couldn't find the DMV ride - oh wait.............the DMV is closed on Sunday - but here's what I DID find:

1. Must be expensive to throw a fastball.

2. Time to start filling the booths up.

3-9. The booths. Some have just been refilled and are ready and some have not. The picture of the double booth is followed by one that's a closeup of the health food they were giving as prizes.

10. The guy who was filling up all the booths holds up a bag of new goodies (he didn't want to be on camera).

11-16. The rides

17,18. After I left, I passed the convent and saw a note on the door. That's the last picture. (Mass for whom? And why in a convent?)

One came semi-close to me after takeoff this morning (1) and then headed east (2).

Half an hour later - just before noon - I saw one over the hospital (3).

Around 4pm, another was headed back to Teterboro (4 - crappy shot of the aircraft).

These articles make it sound like the building that just got demolished is the original building from 1887.

There's no mention that the original building was located where the YMCA is now and the property went down to the river. The recently-deceased building came about almost 40 years later.

What - no pictures of Ol' Homer the Shore bird letting loose in Manasquan?

I heard a familiar sound overheard on Monday, but saw nothing in the sky because it was foggy. It happened more than once - almost consecutively.

The third time was the charm. I could barely make out something in the sky and took a picture in that direction. If you squint at the first image below, you might be able to make out that it's an Osprey and there are usually a few in the sky around Memorial Day, using Teterboro as a base. So I'm guessing what I heard were 3 of them arriving.

I heard the sound again yesterday coming from east of me and took the picture of one somewhere over Teaneck (I think).

I suspect you'll be hearing them more often between now and Monday.

The Holy Trinity Church annual carnival is next week and this online reminder shows a picture of an exciting new ride that adults are quite familiar with.

Despite the long lines it always generates, I don't think they'll make much - if any - money on this one.

1. Where quarters go

2. Where dollar bills go

3. This is just as I shot it.

4. Hanging from the rear bumper

5. Hanging by a thread

6. Does name describe the taste?

7. Channel 47 chopper + Channel 4 chopper =  the same chopper

Hackensack Discussion / Lot of pink
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:40:43 AM »
Seen in the City Hall parking lot on Tuesday (Paint the Town Pink is a community-wide effort presented by Hackensack Meridian Health to raise awareness of the importance of annual mammography and women’s wellness.):

Marine 1st Lt. William C. Ryan, Jr was buried yesterday, just hours after his wife's funeral service. She had waited 48 years and received word that his remains had been found in January, just before she learned that she had stage-four cancer.

I did a quick 3-photo stitch today of the fully-completed project.

The Record is full of surprises today.................and I haven't even finished reading it yet.

After seeing the strange sign that I posted earlier today, I got as far as the classifieds, where I always check the Antique & Classic car offerings to see if anyone's giving away a 1963 split-window Corvette.

Unfortunately, that's not happening today, but there was an unusual new ad that I had never seen before: "Old Mafia Vehicles" and its picture showed a Cadillac being pulled from some body of water.

Is there a market for such cars?
