I haven't shot here in probably 3 years, but they seem to be changing the murals more often, so I'd better start paying more attention, because there's always great stuff here.

Before I could even start, I got interrupted by a bunch of stupid fish crows who were trolling for food in the garbage. This seems to be the season for these dopey-ass birds, who sound as bad as they act.

1. This one flew from the garbage can to a fence with his prize piece of aluminum foil, started to shake it and then dropped it. I'm sure his friends were impressed.

2. The Bergen Bench Players put on a show for a spellbound audience, while............

3. .........this one watched from the garbage seats.

4,5. I moved on from the noisy amateurs to the stars of the show. These were the best entries on the east-facing wall and............

6. ........the entire south-facing wall was dazzling (it's a photo stitch - click to enlarge).

Just got back - the place is practically empty.

If you're thinking about it, GO!

Hackensack Videos / March for Jesus? Ward St, Hackensack 10-11-20
« on: October 13, 2020, 02:36:47 PM »
I heard an amplified voice addressing Jesus on Sunday afternoon, looked out my window and saw this on Ward St.

I have no clue as to what, who, or why (when was 4:33pm).

Anybody know anything about  it?

Here are 5 months of boredom in 3 shots.............well, actually 7 shots (the stitch takes up 5 of them).

This one's winding down too.

That last double-image seems to have current running through Current and then not (solar powered?).

Click to enlarge  (which you've probably figured out usually means only the horizontal images).

Not much new to see here - I think I'm done with this one.

There are some good pairings here. All dates are under each image.

First two: front entrance

Next two: off to one side of the front entrance

Next two: off to the other side of the front entrance

Next two: the back entrance on Moore St

Next two: new additions to that rear entrance

(Remind you of anything?)

Last one: some sort of relaxation area just south of the building on Moore St. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the Susquehanna freight trains rumbling through very close by.

As usual, click to enlarge.

Many of these were taken from home, but it shows the color progression pretty well.

The last 2 images were taken from Foschini Park.

I wasn't aware of what this building was to be called, but the name and color scheme seem to be pretty appropriate, given the history of the location..............but only if the rent was 5 or 10 cents a month.

If you thought I was far behind in the 389 Main post, I'm WAY behind in the Projects post (which contains 8 different projects).

Let's take them one at a time starting at 50 Main and working our way north.

These shots cover 4 visits over the last 6+ months - a chance to see some progression.

The dates are under each picture.

RIP, Whitey.

I can't be the only one here who used to love watching this guy pitch (or can I?).

I took this shot of Whitey, heavyweight boxer Gerry Cooney and Cooney's manager Victor Valle in the locker room of Yankees Spring Training camp (where he did NOT pitch this day) in Fort Lauderdale, FL, in 1982.

Whitey looks absolutely thrilled to be there, doesn't he?

Anybody know who Bella Hadid is? No? I didn't either, but she's apparently a big-deal model who came to Hackensack to sample the wares at White Manna and Cranberry Junction Cafe and posted it all on Instagram. Check out the 8 pix and two videos here:

Remember when they changed this project's original 389 Main address to 395 Main and I kept posting it as 389?

Guess what?

Click to enlarge (especially the STITCH):

We're getting toward the end of the line - visually - with this project, but I'm still way behind, so I'm just gonna post 20 pictures at a time until I catch up. The dates I took them are underneath each picture and there's not a lot I can say about every image, but to be a semi-accurate representation of each step that occurred in the construction of this building, I have to include everything until there's nothing different to see anymore.
