1. You may remember this pre- and post-demolition posting from January 2015, taken from the Hackensack River Walkway by Costco.

The rest of the photos were taken last week:

2. (also from Costco) The cranes look very far apart in this photostitch.

3. Moving around the bend in the river to the walkway behind Pep Boys makes them look a lot closer.

4. From a little further north on the same walkway, I got this long stitch of the entire scene.

5. After crossing the Court St bridge, I got this really wide stitch of the site. You can see the red top of the same fence on both sides of the image.

I may come back periodically, but I have enough projects to shoot on my side of the river.

Hackensack Discussion / Five To One

Besides being the name of a great old Doors' song, it's also the ratio of unavailable Sunday Services parking spaces to trucks at the Second Reformed Church after someone left a moving van parked across five spaces on Saturday evening.

After he tooketh away, the Lord caused something to be bestowed upon his windshield (third picture).

"But your Honor, how was I supposed to know that people go to church on Sunday?"

Hackensack Discussion / 9/11 sticker from The Record
« on: September 11, 2018, 08:31:12 PM »
While cleaning out a pile of papers today - 9/11 - I found a small envelope from the Record, dated 7/13/02. Inside was a 3" by 6" unused "We Will Never Forget" sticker with the famous Tom Franklin photo of the 3 firemen raising the flag amidst the rubble on the front and info on the back (see below).

It seems appropriate to find this today because the Tribute in Lights, which I can usually see every year from my apartment is not visible tonight.

The was taken at maximum magnification through a tiny-slat shade on a hazy day.

I'm gonna have to get back there on a nicer day.

Before the pix, bits and pieces of several QuickTime videos are jammed together for a YouTube video.

Favorite video part: at 0:40, check out the weird sound of what looks like an asphaltmower and the worker Maypole-dancing it around a manhole cover repeatedly.

(at least that's what it looks like from 70 feet above)

Do you watch the ball fall on New Year's Eve on TV?

Hackensack Discussion / We don't want the rain to get wet
« on: August 04, 2018, 01:27:00 PM »
Why do we get Nixle notices from the Hackensack Office of Emergency Management when we've had pouring rain for days on end saying that "...Carver Park Splash Pad and Polifly Park Splash Pad are closed due to the inclement weather"?

Who is disappointed by this news? How many people did they expect to show up on rain-soaked days? What's the emergency?

I couldn't initially read what this apparent musician was giving away yesterday - all I could see was "Free" - until he and the assembled multitude moved to the stage area for the sold-out concert.

Hackensack History / Demolition of The Record building
« on: July 30, 2018, 03:42:07 PM »

It's not scheduled to begin until September, but whenever it does, if anyone gets any decent shots, posterity asks that you kindly post them here.

I saw the W.B. Mason truck blocking Ward St and noticed that there was no one in the driver's seat and took a picture. No sooner had I done that when an even bigger truck - without honking and waiting to see if the driver came out of the building - just drove right onto the sidewalk and around W.B.'s right side. He was more on the sidewalk than he was on the road and was still on the sidewalk as he passed the entrance to residential 22 Ward.

As you can see in the last picture, there was plenty of room to park in the parking lot of the building to which W.B. was delivering, so all this could have been avoided if he made the effort to park lawfully.

If these "driving" exhibitions annoy anyone in the HPD, I can't give you W.B.'s plate number because ANOTHER unlawfully-parked vehicle blocks it, but the delivery occurred at 3:03pm on July 20. Sidewalk Sam's truck, however, has lots of info on it.

I saw this guy walk across the E lot, then walk on a sidewalk and finally cross the street - all with his left index finger firmly implanted in his left ear.

No press releases were handed out, so I can't tell you why.
