I took a bunch of shots, but this stitch is all-encompassing of the demolition progress as of two days ago.

Hackensack Discussion / WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T FORGET..............

All that jive you hear every mid-term that THIS one is the most important one of your life is finally true!

And don't overlook the Hackensack-only Municipal Question about establishing  a Municipal Open Space, Recreation and HISTORIC PRESERVATION TRUST FUND!! (personal emphasis on that last part - see ballot question below)

How many times has someone here mentioned saving and preserving some part of an historic building that has just been torn down, only to be told there's no money for it and nowhere to put it?

Passage of this referendum could provide the opportunity to change that.

The vaguest hint of a route appears in the surprisingly-hard-to-find schedule.

Sounds like a resurrection of the once-popular shuttle that ran Main Street, Anderson Street, Prospect Ave, and Essex Street. Joseph Campagna and myself headed up that effort so many years ago, starting around 1993, and the proposal was part of the whole plan to revitalize the business community by bringing large-scale residential development to the downtown center.

There were lots of things that went wrong with the original shuttle, including them breaking down too often, making it free instead of charging something nominal, and not implementing the advertising plan as originally proposed. I guess it's time to try again.

Does anyone know, what is the new route ?

Happy Halloween! How come these things scare everyone but editors, publishers and investors?

1,2. These two headlines are bad enough by themselves, but...........

3. ............things sink to a new level when they're both on the same page.

4, 5. Change of seasonal ineptness as baseball fades and basketball rises

6,7,8. Blah, blah and blah

9. This shows that ALL the problems aren't restricted to the sports section.

As usual, moron-mania follows.
