Hackensack Discussion / Re: Tonight at Foschini Park
« on: July 06, 2009, 01:02:20 AM »
Besides the crappy cell shots, I took some video too and zoomed in on the explosions. While watching the tape on TV and hitting the shaky pause button, I took cell shots off the screen to see what they looked like.

Now I know.

Hackensack Discussion / Tonight at Foschini Park

Taking fireworks pictures from Union St with a cellphone is probably not the best idea (the moon looked nice, though).

Hackensack Discussion / Today at Foschini Park
« on: July 04, 2009, 04:21:06 PM »
In all the time I've lived here, I've never gone to Foschini Park on the Fourth of July. It was either too hot or I was doing something else, but today neither of those factors was in play, so I walked over there this afternoon.

I needed a break from a solid week of scanning the pictures of Michael Jackson that I took on assignment at two local 1988 concerts. It would be nice to get away from that for a while.

Here's what I saw instead at Foschini:

Hackensack Discussion / At State and Ward this morning
« on: June 26, 2009, 07:22:00 PM »
Pic 1: I heard a lot of fire engine sirens this morning and noticed a crowd of social workers and clients on State St across from Comprehensive Behavioral Healthcare.

Pic 2: Some self-important clown - even though he/she had TWO other methods of egress - decided it was more important to make everyone move out of the way (those are taillights - not headlights).

Pic 3: No big problem in the building, apparently. The HFD left and everyone went back inside.

Geez - I went to Grades 1-4 in this building and now its successor is closing after 51 years.

I'm only 39 - how can that be? ::)

(NOTE: eBay made a lot of crappy changes this past week, including the creation of super-long auction URLs, so from now on, I'll try to either post the item number - which you can simply enter into eBay's search box - or, if I have the time, I'll make a shorter URL, like the one just below)

That's an awfully long URL. If it doesn't work and you need to see the auction, go to ebay.com and enter 110398312292   in the search box.


On the back of the photo, it says "1884".
