Hackensack Discussion / Re: School Board may build new school

Down on Hudson Street where I grew up we only had Immaculate Conception (where I went) and Jackson Ave school (which I believe was K thru 4th or 5th grades?)
After that kids would have to trek way uptown to the middle school. The majority of schools were always in the northern part of town...are there any I'm missing in the southern part of the city?

I ate at Paula's two weeks ago. Food was good....chicken was delicious, and the sides were good too, maybe a little salty for my tastes but still good. Prices were reasonable too

I did drive twice up the two way State Street in the last few weeks. It felt odd but I realized how much simpler it is getting thru town that way. Personally I feel since State street is wider than Main just having that as a two way would make driving thru town so much smoother.

At what point did Motor Age move to Bogota? I was never at the Hackensack location but I do remember the Bogota one

I found this picture in a box recently. I took it I believe around 82 or 83. There was a small used car lot right on the corner of Hudson and (then) Bank St. The Dodge Charger was my favorite car back then and my 110 camera was handy haha. I was standing on the corner facing south (rt 80 in the background). It was a block up from where I grew up on Hudson St. Anyone remember this lot, and the bar?

For the life of me, I simply cannot understand WHY people feel the need to go out in freezing weather wearing shorts. I see it everywhere, people all bundled up on top... hat,gloves, etc. And shorts. I even saw one guy in Shop Rite in shorts and sandals

I hope everyone who drives in those areas has good insurance for all the potential accidents  :police:

Always liked them....when I started playing in clubs in 1983 they were a semi-regular Dirt Club band (as was I)
Then saw them in 2000 at the Court Tavern in New Brunswick...great voice and terrific songwriter, A very sad passing

Hope the reason for the non posting time isn't an unfortunate one.

Love it!! Thank you :))

I saw that over the weekend, it was really good. My favorite part was watching them just playing in the studio. Sadly no Bill Ward though

I remember my older brother telling me he saw them back then but I don't remember where it was (maybe the Capitol) but that they sounded terrible.

They might have had a tub of Clyde's cherry ice that leaked...happened to me once  :o
