Ever give any thought to renaming this development  the “389 Main Street project “ rather than the “389 Main Street rehab project” since the word “rehab “ certainly does not apply to this new construction project .
Just a thought  in terms of accuracy.

The biggest crane yet for this project - 110 tons - joins the 3 loads of steel beams. which will horizontally connect those standing beams on the left beginning in 3 days.

9:03am - On my roof taking pictures of the Holman site from the back end

9:33am - Nixel notice comes in about Main St being closed at Maple for an hour. I know what that means.

9:34am - Back on the roof to verify activity and saw a bite taken out of the brick wall that fronts on Main - time to get out there.

9:47am - I'm on the corner of Main and Anderson by Sears shooting death and destruction (minus the death) for the next 17 minutes and then had to run down the street to shoot the 389 Main construction site and its flying steel girders.

In the last pic, you can see that the Holman sidewalk wall is now the same height as Family Dollar (brick wall, far left). As of today (12-13-18), the rest of Holman's sidewalk wall is gone. You can also see that a good chunk of the Sears parking lot is being used to sell Christmas trees, so hurry on down - it may be the last time you can buy a Christmas tree at this Sears.

I was wondering how drivers on Main St would become aware of the free parking. The answer is pink plastic bags. If I was parking and saw a meter covered by a plastic bag, I'd probably think the meter was out of service and park elsewhere until..............."OMG! They're ALL out of service! Wait - it says something on the bag.............................nevermind".

I hope the city is environmentally-conscious enough to save the bags for future re-use.

I drove by there on sunday and saw a 150 sign still up too. I hope someone saves that little booth there somehow. Just seeing that logo reminds me of delivering the paper in 1978-79
Hackensack History / The Record building demolition is complete
« Last post by BLeafe on December 10, 2018, 08:51:01 PM »
The front part of The Record building finally came down today. I wasn't there, so if somebody else was, please post the pix. I found out when I drove by this afternoon, got out and took a few shots, but it's kind of empty and certainly anti-climactic to be shooting nothing, so here's a pair of before and after images.

Two trees appear to define the space where the front was and the heavy machinery seemed to enjoy playing with the remains. The stitch is head-on to where the front was. I think the best shot is the one from the side with the sun reflecting because the other local buildings are now unblocked.

Actually, EVERYTHING with The Record name on it isn't down yet as you can see in the last picture.

It used to take a couple of weeks to fill up a post of Record errors, but not lately. They're really screwing up and getting worse.

That said, the Fives & Flubs sad deluge continues:

Might be a nice shot when the project's finished.
