These two businesses - NJ Modern Kitchen & Bath and Mix & Match Fashion - are right next to the Hackensack Riverkeeper building at 231 Main (see pic). Firemen were in 231 Main, but I don't know what damage - if any - the Riverkeeper suffered.

I have a ton of photos to get through - hopefully by tomorrow - but if anyone else was there and took pictures, please post them.

Just add sunlight...........

What a performer! Too bad I only got to photograph him at the 1988 Grammys.

From home, I could see that there was no crane activity on the Main St side of the 150-170 Main St project at Main and Mercer - the usual reason for closures like this -  so I decided to take a look, approaching it from the south:

1. Not much to see here

2,3. After a short walk, I could see something was going on right at Main and Mercer, but I had been getting strange looks from hard-hatted guys on the way there (coronaparanoia?), so I started shooting from a distance (the long zoom on this tiny camera is great!). This was insurance in case anybody gave me crap when I got to the intersection.

4. As I approached the hole in the street, someone who seemed to be supervising noticed me and my camera and started to turn toward me. For a split second, an aluminum light pole was between us (and right next to me). I stopped, took this picture and continued walking. He never saw a thing. I have no idea if he was really going to say anything, but why give him a chance to? I never found out why they were digging, but I'd rather have the picture and not know than know and be photoless. Somebody else here who's more knowledgeable can post what they were doing.

5. When I got up between Banta Pl and Salem St, I turned around and zoomed in again. Nothing special, but it's a scene you won't likely see again anytime soon.

6,7. I don't know if the way Demarest St looks is connected to the work at Main and Mercer (I'm guessing it is), but I took a shot on the way up Main and another on the way down Moore St.

I've been itching to get back on the Hackensack River Walkway for a while now and yesterday - May 2 - was when it was finally re-opened.

Before I even got to the gate that separates the Johnson Park boardwalk from the FDU section, I got a celebratory raised-arm salute from a couple who were walking their dog. I thought this was the perfect image for the event and asked them if they would re-create it in front of my camera. "Sure", said Michael and Barbara from Bogota. I tried to get four-legged Joy to do the same, but...........

The rest of the pictures:

2.3. The gate to FDU-land

4. Relaxed fishing near the pedestrian bridge

5. MLK and blooming flowers

6,7. The pedestrian bridge, which looks really nice now

8.9. Sunbathers above the water

10,11. The birds

12,13. The guardrail-eating tree

14. Time to go home

This guy drives all over town for 17 minutes and doesn't drive on the main business section of Main St?

The drone one is pretty good.

An N95 and an N2000?

It's the first time I've seen anyone outside my window wearing an anti-virus mask.

Let's hope it doesn't become commonplace (but I have a feeling it will).
