Hackensack Discussion / Re: April the Giraffe is giving birth RIGHT NOW

Looks like the birth occurred about a half-hour after I posted this.

I didn't see it live, but you can find it online if you're so inclined.

The cam's still running and the baby is trying to stay upright.

Hackensack Discussion / April the Giraffe is giving birth RIGHT NOW

I just found this. Apparently, millions have been following this and almost a million people are watching this live right now.

Two legs are already sticking out as she's walking around.

It looks like this could go on for a while.

I know - it's not the kind of post you usually see on this site, so maybe I'll delete it after it's over. But, on the off-chance that this is of interest to anyone, enjoy(?).

I knew that the artwork had changed there a while ago, but yesterday was the first chance I had to go shoot it, so here is a 6-picture photostitch of it. There's one obvious glitch (look for two "NZ"s and the roofline above them), but overall, I'm happy with it.

Looks like the artillery is in place.

Issues are downtown redevelopment, including returning Main Street to two-way traffic, as a way of raising ratables and lowering taxes for home and business owners. Will bringing hundreds or thousands of people to live there revive downtown? Englewood has tried that so far without success. Still, if taxes go down .... Hackensack is saddled with the hospital and other non-profits that shift the tax burden to you and me, so any way to add ratables is welcome. Another issue that hasn't been addressed is returning the city to what it was under the Zisas. Will that mean nepotism, higher taxes or what? Look at the schools. The Zisas still control that board.

OK - what are the issues?
1. Two World Trade Center rises.

2. My old Hitachi sits atop the VCR-Printer-Small Fridge snowy-peaked mountain awaiting the technology trash haulers.

3. This is the brightest and shiniest I've ever seen the First Presbyterian Church's steeple since its recent makeover.

4. The steeple photobombs the First Baptist Church's school flag.

5. Someone on the first floor of my building has apparently enlisted Divine Intervention in keeping those windows and doors closed (I know the landlord didn't do it).

6. Window installation

7. Stuffed bra

8. Interesting cloud colors on the moon

9. Photographing Ladies Liberty while stopped at the light at Mercer and Main. I love candids - especially when compared with the posed shot the Hackensack Daily Voice recently ran (no sun on one poor guy's face). Here's the Rutherford DV version:

10. & 11. Each truck gets four bucketloads...........always shoot on the fourth one.

12. & 13.The sun's blinding rays were reflected off this Jersey City building right into my living room on March 4 and 5.

14. Meanwhile, about a dozen feet west of the previous image stands this cool guy, who's about 7' tall. I think this is my favorite shot of the year so far.

15. This just in: after yesterday's storm passed, I saw the top few floors of 432 Park Ave in Manhattan sticking out above the clouds that appeared to hover over the Hudson River..........but it's hard to be sure about where the clouds actually were from looking at something that's 5-7 miles away in a two-dimensional picture. BTW - the illuminated building in the lower center is the Marlboro House on Main St in Ridgefield Park.
