The Hackensack money train continues.

Any actions to silence your photo-journalism are in clear violation of the law.  This is REPRISAL. This is HARASSMENT.   Whatever law firm is after you, they can go jump in the River.

I was thinking the same thing.  The front should be on East Camden Street for the reasons you stated and one more, which is that the city should want to encourage pedestrian traffic from the lobby entrance of this building to Main Street. Putting the entrance around the corner on River Street is not only gritty and unattractive from a tenant's standpoint, it's too far from the shops on Main Street.

Great pictures.  I am very happy to see that old pipe replacement is part of this project.

Yes, the junkyard is paying taxes, but it's reducing the tax revenue of the properties across the street and throughout the neighborhood. 

1. Getting rid of the junkyard will increase tax revenues throughout the neighborhood, and
2. it's been long known that nice parks increase local tax revenues as well.

The green space should have been preserved. 

What would seem to me to be the super-obvious choice would be to condemn the long-hated junkyard on Second Street, and expand Carver Park, and build this basketball stadium where the junkyard is.  I don't get it.  Why isn't this obvious.

I got a great name for Bergen Regional Medical Center.  How about "Bergen Pines".

nice work.  I look forwards to seeing more of their old photos.  I'm sure they have an amazing archives

I think the name change is bad for another reason; it's nowhere near NEW BRIDGE LANDING.

I don't think anything in Bergen County should be named NEW BRIDGE unless it's located in that geographical area where River Edge, New Milford, Hackensack, and Teaneck come together.

There are between 5 and 8 resident deer in Borg's Woods. They are usually either along Coles Brook, or up on the hillside near Brook Street.  They stay in Borg's during the day, and at night they wander into Hackensack and Maywood. 

Deer are also resident behind the Shops at Riverside, and they can easily pass under Route 4 at the river to reach the FDU area.

And deer are resident around Teterboro airport and in the Meadowlands.

YES, the new parking pattern is to have longer spots so cars don't have to back into the spots. 

You can't make this up, it's that stupid.  Evidently this has been done in other cities, but I've never seen it

And I bet they are doing this project WITHOUT replacing the 100+ year old brick sewer line.  So all the new work is going to have to be ripped up and patched every time there is a burst in that old sewer line

Oh, and I forgot the big one:  According to the Democrats, the whole thought process of how to improve society flows from the arts, and at the same time all of religion is considered "the problem".  If only it could be banned, taxed to death, discredited in the minds of our Youth, portrayed as stupid and evil, or otherwise destroyed. And that is exactly the Socialist agenda.  So go ahead, Pastor McClelland, continue to champion the forces that will destroy your Faith.

it's OK to speak out against the wrong's of Trump, but don't ignore the wrong's of the left.  The Democrats are the party of many things hostile to Christianity, including atheism, abortion, drug use, and more. 

It could be an easy decision for any Christian to be a Republican, except for the fact that the Republican agenda is against economic equality that Christ would surely espouse. The draining of resources away from the pure, the proposed tax plan that benefits the wealthy, and more. Simply put, there is no political party for the true Christian.

McClelland is my former pastor, and I know him well.  He is well-meaning, but I don't believe he recognizes any of the problems from the left side of the political spectrum. He totally minimizes them.
