Isnít there such a thing as accountability? Arenít people supposed to be accountable for their own actions?
These two people were mature adults who chose to cross the tracks where they did. They made a choice where to cross and they paid the ultimate price. I remember a case over thirty years ago where a young man was walking on the tracks carrying a boom box and he never heard the train.
There was another case at Anderson Street where an individual crossed the tracks in front of a stopped train and then crossed the tracks again as the train had started moving. This person was an adult also.
Government puts up stop signs and drivers run the stop signs. Government puts up traffic lights and drivers run the lights.
Government can only do so much. Sadly some people make the wrong choice and have to be held accountable even if done posthumously.

And of course anybody who ever heard a drill sergeant count cadence in basic training:

It will take a joint effort between the City and the affected business interests to create an environment that will make people comfortable to sample what is available.

Time for Olí Homer to give a recollection of the good days gone bye. Back in the early Ď80ís General Poors Retreat was owned by  the late George Brown a well known Hackensack attorney. George was heavily involved in Irish American activities.
On certain Saturday evenings George would bring in an Irish band and by 10:00 you couldnít get into Poors. This was about 35 years ago when Main Street wasnít exactly a hub of nighttime entertainment. Back in those days there was a Saint Patrickís Day parade on Main Street and Poorís was a focus of the parade revelry.
Ah, the good old days.

Perhaps you are confusing this photo with Neil Sedaka singing Stairway To Heaven.

Although I am sure that the nursing home residents shown in the photo have passed on, it looks like Ronald Squillace is the gentleman with the jacket and tie standing against the wall.

Isnít Passaic Street a County Road? If Iím correct, the County would be the key player here.

They can park the ambulance in front of the Middle School to save response time.

If someone were trying to stop him from taking photos, he would have taken a photo of the person trying to stop him from taking photos and then posted that photo.

That painted McCrory sign from yesterdayís post can be photographed and lasered onto a plaque. Wouldnít that look fantastic?

It would be nice if we could get the developers to spring for a grand or so to put plaques on the historic buildings and sites downtown. The City did that back in the 1970ís during itís early redevelopment efforts. There were plaques installed on the old bank building at Main and Mercer. Hopefully these plaques were saved.

The developers of 210 Main should hang this photo in the lobby for old times sake.
