Hanging in there for now...
Hackensack Discussion / SEARS has filed for bankruptcy

How will we ever live without this store that nobody goes to?

Maybe this one will survive, but if not, what would you like to see take over the building? Amazon? HUMC? Maybe the Family Dollar store across the street will expand to serve the new residents of the current 435 Main project next door and the nearby 389 Main project (and maybe the sun will be green tomorrow).

Stuff accumulates on my desktop during the year. Today is one of many cleaning days.

1, 2. Why workers wear hard hats (protection from flying bird poop)

3. Two projects, two banks and a courthouse. Wells Fargo REALLY needs to get rid of all that unsightly cell equipment.

4. Preparing for two-way traffic at Main and Passaic

5. Lotsuckers

6. When the first 200 feet or so of State St was closed one morning last week because of construction equipment and a small water company dig, all traffic was diverted to Ward St. It was pretty slow-going trying to turn onto busy Union St, but some truck drivers were smart enough navigate the E lot to turn back onto State St and continue their journey.

7. The Riviera Lounge must have HUGE expansion plans...............look at their new parking garage!

8. Another gift from StarKist tuna - I didn't know they had a crunchy version.

9. I could see these architectural delights atop the building at Passaic and Prospect from my apartment (I know they have a name, but I just can't think of it).

10. Looking one block past Passaic and Prospect, this shows the same picture as the previous one, including the foliage with the hole in it ("holiage"?), the Watchung Mountains valley (including Garret Mountain in Paterson), and the triple-cross on the Methodist church at Summit and Passaic.......................but with a much cooler-looking sky.

11, 12. These two across-the-street-from-each-other images were taken on E. Ward St between Main and River. (#11) I'm guessing someone traded in their truck for a motorcycle? (#12) It's just too weird-looking to make up a story for.

13 - UPDATE! - Here's the finished product: doors that appear to open only from the inside. That means the original garage door must be boring!

14. Attention all you sign demanders! The wait is over, according to the new sign on top of the former Geri's. Now what happens?

15. This is another of those "Photos I'll never be able to take again" shots. After January or so, the 389 Main 5-story residential monstrosity being built will completely block my 30-year view of the Kipp's Bend section of the river and any boats on its surface. On the plus side..............

16..............I'll still be able to see The Modern I & II in Fort Lee, but because 389 Main's 5th-floor tenants will need to use the elevator, an elevator room will have to be built on the roof and with my luck, it'll block these towers.

Click to enlarge and stay tuned.
