Hackensack Discussion / Re: 9/11 sticker from The Record
« on: September 30, 2018, 08:32:09 PM »
Of course, Tom Franklin, the photographer, probably would have won a Pulitzer Prize for the flag-raising photo, if the editors had put it on the front page the next day. Unfortunately, Frank Scandale, the paper's new editor, caved it to the bean counters, who told him it would be "too expensive" to remake the front page for the photo, so The Record, like so many other newspapers, ran the stock photo of the smoking towers on A-1. Franklin's photo ran on the front of an inside section on Sept. 12, and his flag-raising photo was sent out by The Associated Press and landed on the front of The New York Post the next day, and the tabloid credited AP. That forced Rich Gigli, The Record's photo director, and Franklin to go on the "Today" show the next day and claim credit for his unique image. What a disgrace. I was a copy editor at the time, and was called in to put out an Extra in the afternoon and then worked into the night putting out the next day's paper, with the column of smoke from the Twin Towers framed in the big newsroom windows of The Record's headquarters at 150 River St. until dark.

That was pretty much the rumor after the plaques went missing.

A Page 1 column in The Record on the Tesla Model 3 is filled with errors:

If a referendum on the $165.1 million building and renovation plan for Hackensack schools is held on Jan. 22, 2019, which of you will vote "yes" and which will vote "no"? My mind is already made up: I'm voting "no."

The story from The Wretched (err The Record) reports the plaques "were pried from the ground."

There is some talk in Hackensack that the plaques weren't stolen at all, but removed for safekeeping.... The suggestion is the veterans "forgot" this, and told police they were stolen after the vandalism was discovered.

Hackensack History / Re: Demolition of The Record building

Well, I gave a damn because I worked there so many years, and asked the company that's taking it down.  Thanks, Eric, for seeing my point. And while I'm at it, does it bother anyone that BLEAFE gets to put a link to his photo business on his posts? What's that crass commercialism all about?

No explosives or huge wrecking balls will be used; 150 River Street and other buildings will be taken down with large mechanical claws, and pulverized to be used as fill to raise site 3 feet.

That doesn't make sense. I'll stick with leaning, as anyone can see from the photos I took 2 years apart; same lean as before:

But I love your idea of filing a property maintenance citation against the Borgs, though I don't think the city will do that on its own; are you ready to go to the Building Department and file a complaint????
