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

doesnt bother me a bit.  he contributes more than anyone else in this group, so who cares if he has a link or not.

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?

well, you would be wrong.    The correct nautical term is listing...   and it is not stuck in the mud either, at least not as it was before.   you see, on the night of October 29, 2012, the Ling actually popped out of the mudhole it was in for the previous 39 years when the river crested....   when the river went back down the boat did not settle back in the depression it had been in, so it took on a 4 degree list to port.     that is where it sits today...

its a BS list.  take out property crime.   then rank the places.   Mantua Twp is at the bottom. 4 violent crimes, but hundreds of property crimes.  because they have a big drug problem there so petty crime is rampant.   this list means nothing.

they had a substantial water leak in the one building.  buildings should be coming down shortly.

why would you think someone is trying to stop him from taking photos?   maybe he is having an operation, or going on vacation...   if someone were trying to stop him from taking photos, I am sure he would have alluded to that in his posting...  and anyway, nobody can stop him from photographing anything he wants in the public domain, which includes from his roof, the ground, and any other publicly accessible space...And i'm sure he is well aware of that as a professional photographer...

far right in the rendering photo shows the toyota dealer and you can see the grade going down the hill on east camden towards it.  the access driveway for the rear lot of the main st businesses is visible to the left of the entrance.

the entrance to the building IS on East Camden St... as close as it can be to Main St....   a 6 second google search would have shown that...
