Your first picture reminds me of when DiSalvo's was on the left hand side almost across from the CVS

Wonder how it would have gotten bent like that in the first hanging on it or something?

Great collection Bob! When I was a kid there was a place a few doors before the library we used to get our patches at. I think it was some sort of a sewing shop?

Went to B-W on Saturday and decided to look for it in person, in it's current state it looks like it won't be long before it's replaced

In the late 70's and early 80's me and my friends from our end of town would hang out under Rt 80 and throw eggs at the 165 buses going by. Then we'd make our way up to Indian Lake in Little Ferry and we'd war with the LF kids...the trees would be filled with toilet paper, broken eggs everywhere...a real juvenile disaster! At some point Valley Fair stopped selling eggs to kids on Cabbage night! haha
Good times  8)

Hi gang, this was a little before my time I'm guessing...anyone remember a little place behind Solari's (or somewhere in that area) named Hook Fin, or something to that effect?

I'm just curious if anyone reads this....was there a murder in Staib Park once? Or someone found dead there? I thought I heard something along those lines once

So Saturday evening we were a little early for Lido's to open (yes, another trip...and I picked up the phone this time, NO dial tone!) A little cruise way uptown by Staib Park I found another one.

As a really big and long time fan of the Masters myself I wish there was more footage of that lineup...I knew Daniel Rey casually many years ago and he mentioned to me that playing with Baker was a highlight in his career. Funny coincidence relating to Hackensack as well, there was a studio in the 90's called Big Blue Meenie (now in Jersey City I think, formerly out of a house on Davis Ave), but the owners were from Syracuse (where the Masters) hailed from. The one owner was a drummer, and had a chance to join the Masters but declined. The spot was filled by Baker.
