#7 are counter weights for the crane.

1. I went back to the FDU pedestrian bridge on Friday, starting on the Teaneck side.

2. The walking surface is now gone, but the old supports appear to be staying.

3,4. The rescue craft isn't in the water, so these guys are in big danger.

5,6,7. First look at the new components of the bridge

8. When no one was looking, I "borrowed" the boat and zipped over to the Hackensack side to take this picture (and if you believe THAT................).

Click to enlarge.

the worker is in the boat in case anyone working on the bridge falls in the water.

whoever decided to plant that species of tree on the Salem St. side of the building should re-evaluate...  besides the fact that the trees are already all torn up from vehicles hitting them, an entire lane of traffic is lost because they reach so far out into the street... the Main St. side not much better...

they cleared the northwest side of the tracks there last week .  wonder whats going on that the railroad is spending that much money to do it.

maybe 15 feet....  the building from the highest completed level to the very bottom isn't even 50 feet.    he does have a flair for the dramatic headline though...

its a lumber car.   there is a Lumber Yard in Spring Valley right at the end of the line.  probably going up there. 

I would hope they completely vacated the store during the entire time that any structural members were being demolished higher than the height of the store.   There was an incident in Philadelphia in 2012 where 7 people were killed because a contractor did not empty the adjoining structure, and the wall went thru the roof... 

image 6339... who the hell allowed them to take down that wall like that, with an occupied building directly against it.

I'm surprised they didnt get the family dollar and finish off the block.

been going on for a long time and its an open secret.  Clearly nobody in the B of E gives a crap.  Wonder why the school budget is over 100 million dollars?  if they would do strict residency they wouldnt need to build a new school.  Bergenfield did just that a few years ago.  got rid of hundreds of students.   But nobody wants to do anything about it, so the cars with out of state plates line up every day around the schools in Hackensack.   Driving up the taxes of the people who live there.

Grapentine is not a common surname, and there is a family in Paramus with that last name.  they are on FB.
